Words so strong they have splash damage.

If only Hasbro had realised that the game is meant as a warning, not a how-to guide.

Friends, we come here to day to witness me engage in another fruitless rant about flaws in Capitalism that to me seem completely obvious. I must therefore include the usual disclaimer about how I don’t actually know anything about Economics, so if an economist would like to post in the comments section and tell me why I’m wrong that would be most welcome.

Seriously, if I’m wrong then I want to know about it so please tell me.

The downside of not knowing anything about Economics is that I often get corrected on things (which isn’t actually that bad because that’s how I learn). The upside is that if I cannot be beaten in an argument on these issues, by people who have studied Economics, then that means there is something seriously wrong with their ideas.

If you can’t even beat me what the fuck are you going to do against trained opponents?

So anyway, what am I doing today? Oh not much, I’m just trying to debunk the very basis of the global financial system: the idea that profit is always good. You probably know it as “Free Market Capitalism”.

I'm talking to you AT&T!

I mentioned in my previous article on how freedom of the Internet is being eroded that this is a fight that we can never stop fighting. Every time we defend our Internet freedom against an attack we should rejoice, and then get ready for the next attack.

The next attack is currently being launched by AT&T and Comcast.

When you read this you may actually “wtf” in real life, I sure did.

What AT&T is doing is suing for the right to completely restrict all Internet access, for all their subscribers, in whatever way they choose.

What’s their argument? Oh, that’s simple. They are claiming that if they don’t have the right to control everyone’s Internet then that would be a violation of their right to free speech.

I shit you not.
