No one here gives a crap about Nintendo.

The Peril of Hipster Economics.

I tell my aunt her neighborhood is in need of gentrification because I get tired of hearing about her awful neighbors. I think it'd only make things worse.

Viewing shitty houses is a reminder of previous occupancies. I did not live in nice residencies.

Sacked Workers In Saudi Arabia Torch Buses In Protest At Unpaid Wages

From the first of May. International Worker's Day.

Shit Liberal Feminists Say.

I can almost see why people view radical feminists as being fucking crazy, but at the same time liberal feminists are the social democrats of gender equality. Which is to say they don't want to make actual change, just make the current system a little nicer.

Ayn Rand Wrote A Guide for Hollywoof on How to Make Pro-Capitalist Movies

From detachment from reality to hypocrisy and back.

How do you even need an instruction manual for that sort of thing, just have Porky standing on a balcony wearing a suit made of money for an hour and a half or so and conclude it with eat the poor, and you're golden.

In case anyone here is a Netflix subscriber like myself I thought I should share this with you guys.

It shows everything that we only have a little while left to watch on the site.

Woman Allegedly Fired For Being Pregnant After Boss Told Her ‘Pregnancy Is Not Part Of The Uniform’

As she was working in a Dolce & Gabbana store, this is not surprising. Then there is of course the bit at the end of the article concerning how few states have any legislation regarding pregnant women in the workplace and how bills to make it a national thing have been blocked by congress which is also not surprising.

The Forgotten Lessons of the American Eugenics Movement.

The real problem is ideology. While passing said ideology along bloodlines can be curbed, memetic reproduction is another issue entirely.

Does Venezuela's Crisis Prove Socialism Doesn't Work?

It's not the problem with drought or the Saudi's deciding oil is worthless or even mismanagement of the fixed currency system or even that they're an import dependant nation, it's that goddamn socialism.

Ah, sorry if I was confusing; I had actually brought that up because of one of the links that Tsukuyomi had dropped in here. I'm sorry, I should have been more specific.

Minimum Wages & Job Loss.

The author may not be aware of other retarded arguments against minimum wage raises like the belief that companies will just move overseas as if it were as easy as moving a couch to another room or automation will replace the worker which is something that'd happen regardless under capitalism.

Speaking of automation....

Automation And Putting the Blame on Worker.

Another swell aspect of automation the author doesn't cover is that when the work day is over, production does not have to come to a halt because the workers go home.

Neoliberalism – The 'Zombie Doctrine' at the Root of All Our Problems

Why would the United States dare to follow the same ideology as fascist Chile? Because Pinochet wasn't a communist.

The author also states that fascism appeals to "losers," as they respond more to slogans, symbols, and sensations. This can be demonstrated by Trump supporters spouting "Make America Great Again!" as if it were a substitute for an actual argument. Although to say Trump is a fascist is delving deep into leftist logic as he's closer to authoritarian than outright fascist.

And perhaps something less on the side of political and economic thought but not really:

The Subtle Design Features That Make Cities Feel More Hostile.

Those bench designers do not know about my willingness to lay on a goddamn bech regardless of design.

I wouldn't say that since I hardly know anything about him other than he went a match against Mayweather and lost, afterwards facing something regarding not telling about certain injuries before the match and I heard something about him comparing homosexuals to dogs. So the article was kind of enlightening. Maybe also in the sense it's not only in the US actors become politicians, if you see what I mean.

Ironically, there are a few other parallels that you can draw between politics in the United States and the Philippines. Bongbong Marcos for instance is sometimes compared to one of the Kennedy family of American politics since his father, Ferdinand Marcos, is an extremely controversial historical figure who is a member of a large family that is influential across the board, but takes a great deal of criticism. The parallels are rather interesting.

How the Invisible Hand Was Corrupted by Laissez-Faire Economics

Muh praxeology and the market will fix itself despite all evidence to the contrary. And the notion that the Invisible Hand was only used ironically in Smith's works as he only mentioned it by name once in two separate pieces except he really did take it seriously is hysterical.

Faith in the Invisible Hand led to the once-general belief that a higher minimum wage results in lost jobs. It presumes that the wage paid reflects the worth of the workers and that any wage increase resulting from a minimum wage law represents an overpayment to workers, reduces profits, and also reduces the hiring of new workers.

This is actually still a very common belief to this day although many of those people likely have no idea what they're spouting beyond the usual conservative rhetoric that completely ignores how economies work.

Capitalism And Nazism.

Because the age old claim that Nazi's were socialists needed further rebuking. Next up, why the Soviets weren't communists.

The Age of Loneliness is Killing Us

While Neon and I discuss Hilary Clinton, this came up in my newsfeed, so I thought I'd take a gander.

The Hidden Sexism in Calling Out Hillary Clinton’s $12,000 Armani Jacket

About the only thing worth noting from this article is there is no reason to care about what a person wears. Although Clinton's fashion team should be fired.

Which brings me to another article which unfortunately does not come with the image that was shown when I first stumbled upon it.

Austerity policies do more harm than good, IMF study concludes

I think it'd be redundant at this point to offer an critique on neoliberalism as I've already done so at least three times.

And something funny.

The Rise of Pale-Shaming

Alternate Title: Shit White People Say.

I told you, every criticism of Hillary will have an article explaining how it's apparently secretly sexist within the hour. It can't even just be wrong or irrelevant, no it must be known that questioning Hillary is synonymous with hating women. Also, trying to make her more relatable by giving her a jacket worth a year's rent is the masterstroke of a truly ingenious plan.

I have a truly odd one today. Apparently Microsoft tried to connect user search history and the incidence of pancreatic cancers. I actually ready the paper, and it seems that they were looking for people who did searches about the cancers in question, then claimed that they were able to find who had it based on that. It has to be one of the most bizarre and circuitous studies I've ever come across.

The problem with those images is that the Soviet Union was pretty keen on allowing women to enlist in the armed forces as opposed to the muh soggy knee shown.

Such as the existence of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment or the up to 800,000 women that served.

Comes with the communist ideology.

Kisuke, for what it's worth I honestly don't think that there are many rules regarding what sorts of links that you're allowed to add in here, so you can feel free to post whatever you'd like.
