Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

Well it really shows how democracy tends to create societies that are averaged downwards.
It's a race to the bottom when it comes to the quality of public life, because the most popular values are entertainment, materialism, fleeting fads, sports circus shows, etc.

They're not really meant to be read by the general public. They're more like something that needs to be there, in case their opponents say: But you don't have any clear plan for X issue.
So they're meant to project the image that a cert .....

Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

@n0el
It depends on what are the cutoff points for what defines a corporation. Your census bureau defines "large enterprise" as anything with more than 500 employees. If we go by their definition, then about 51% of Americans are employed by large corporations.

Are there any polls that show some kind of growing grudge against corporations among Americans?

Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

All these candidate that preach redistribution of resources might fail because, if I understand the average American mentality, they're not going to vote for someone who "takes mah money and gives it to others who haven't worked for it" and for someone who doesn't project strength. Average .....

I was mainly thinking of Scenario B, because as long as they'd keep their US citizenship, they would fall under the provisions of the wealth tax law. So that would mean gaining citizenship and declaring fiscal residence in another country.
As far as wealth transfer would be concerned, it would probab .....

They're all really bad. Even the big ones. Even those reports that are apparently well-researched and documented occasionally get a story completely wrong.

Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

Soo, what happens if Sanders or Warren get elected and by the time they're sworn in office all US billionaires have moved their wealth outside the country and left? They could move to New Zealand or Australia.
How will Sanders or Warren get the money to fund all their promises?

Re: Music you're listening to

@Cometk Schlagenheim is groundbreaking. I first listened to one piece by them, Speedway, a couple of months ago, when it just came out and I didn't get it, I thought they were just some random noise band spewing out distorted tunes. I liked the video more than the song. But then things started click .....

I doubt the topic of "Jewish conspiracies" only revolves around the Protocols text. The arguments people use today are not mostly from that text.
