Israel: US should learn from our Tactics! 🔗 1622727425
As if the USA needed help figuring out how to bomb civilians and cry for more $$$.
To most consumers, Prime looks like a lovely convenience offering free shipping, and it’s hard to find better prices elsewhere. But the reason you can’t find better prices isn’t because Amazon sells stuff cheap, but because it forces everyone else to sell stuff at higher prices. All of this is done so Amazon can continue to offer ‘free shipping’ while using access to its hundred million plus Prime members as a cudgel to force third party sellers to pay high fees.You always pay one way or another. Concealing true cost is the American way, just look at the FED and our tax system.
What France was confronted with, Roy argued in a formula that made the article immediately famous, was not a “radicalization of Islam” but an “Islamization of radicalism.” “The essential problem for France” was not ISIS, he argued, but “the revolt of the youth.”Can anyone blame them? Saddle a people with debts worse than the NAZIs bucked against, don't get shocked when they don't think twice about tossin' out bodies.
“Why do converts, who never suffered from racism, want all of a sudden to avenge the humiliation endured by Muslims,” asked Roy. “What do migrants of the second generation and converts have in common?”A fight against a deck they know is already stacked so bad they gotta be slaves forever or start shooting. That the Boomers don't fully understand the magnitude of their sins visited upon the next generation is truly astonishing. It's not just the debts either, it's the agglomeration of toxic ideology like Feminism. Practically their entire legacy is dunking on and humiliation of the next generation.
More than twice as many people died of fairly easily treatable tuberculosis in 2020 than of COVIDAs expected.
With the city barricaded, it took me forever to get to the airport. To protect politicians (from COVID and increasingly from irate citizens), large areas where they live have been completely closed off. Sick people cannot find a way to get to the hospital, although only those keen on dying should actually go there.
India has 0.5 hospital beds per 1,000 people, a fraction of what is required — only 5% of hospital beds are in ICUs. Even before COVID hit, Indian hospitals were overflowing with patients. They occupied every single bed, often with more than one person in every bed, and the space in corridors and between the gate and the buildings. I have never seen this any other way.
The Indian medical system is one big orgy of doctors exchanging commissions for cross-referring to each other and getting laboratory tests done, making it the most corrupt sector of Indian society, worse than the government itself. Organ harvesting is not unknown. You go to an Indian hospital to die — and absolutely every Indian has stories to tell about this.
Lacking a functioning legal system, killer hospitals and doctors face no consequences. Today, given the new rules, COVID patients are removed from the sight of their families, ensuring that apathetic medical workers can do whatever they want.
For employees looking elsewhere, Personio found that the most influential factors were a lack of career progression opportunities (29%) and a perceived lack of appreciation for the work they do (29%). This was followed by poor management (25%), a pay freeze or cut (23%), and boredom with their job (23%).Inflation and a demand to return to the office will be the last straw for many. Why would anyone want to keep working for a place with a 100% high school cancer club culture?
The research also identified a disconnect between what employers felt would cause staff to quit and the reality. In particular, employers were found to "drastically underestimate" the impact of a toxic workplace culture on employees' decisions to leave, with almost twice as many employees (21%) citing this as a significant push factor than HR leaders (12%).
After training generations of Americans to forego personal lives and work their brains to mush in service of bigger profits, corporate leaders are waking up to find their companies staffed by people so psychologically dependent upon validation from work that they’re a net minus from a production standpoint, forcing bosses to beg them to shut up, go home, and get lives.His account of his own story is spot on too:
When I was caught up in my own cancelation episode, I was devastated, above all to see the effect it had on my family. Unlike Garcia-Martinez, I had past writings genuinely worth being embarrassed by, and I felt that it was important, morally and for my own mental health, to apologize in public. I didn’t fight for my career and reputation, and threw myself on the mercy of the court of public opinion.Apologies are always seen as weakness, and should never be done. If they are demanded, you should leave wherever you are at, because the demander is a moron.
I now know this is a mistake. The people who launch campaigns like this don’t believe in concepts like redemption or growth. An apology is just another thing they’d like to get, like the removal of competition for advancement. These people aren’t idealists. They’re just ordinary greedy Americans trying to get ahead, using the tactics available to them, and it’s time to stop thinking of stories like this through any other lens.
