  1. There’s no future for this high-tech but pollution and world-destroying society.

  2. Are we finished talking about Israel and Gaza here? I believe everything aboujt how it's been framed is lies, on all sides.

    It's a war for land, like most wars. Both sides want the other off 'their' land. Neither side is willing to say it. Fucking cowards.

    1. Talk about anything you like. I don't have much more to say but if you say something I disagree with I'll let you know.

    1. Thanks, and yeah, I like it. Philosophically, there's no 'stealing' from corporations, no 'crimes' against museums, and no business as usual is OK by me.
