China keeps aggressively surrounding itself with US bases: notes from the edge of The Narrative Matrix – Pearls and Irritations

You can say “But communist regimes are authoritarian blah blah” all you want, but that doesn’t change the fact that capitalism has zero answers for the most important problems facing our species. This still needs to be addressed, and moaning about Mao and Stalin isn’t an answer. Don’t like the iterations of socialism we’ve seen so far? Okay. Then find another answer, and remember we’ve already established that capitalism is not an answer; it cannot address the problems we’ve discussed here. So we need to find an actual answer that does actually work.

Dismantling capitalism, if we ever achieve it, will be the most difficult thing that humanity has ever accomplished. As hard as everyone becoming a buddha, and essentially not much different. But that doesn’t change the fact that it is existentially necessary for us to do so.

We’ll either move from competition-based systems to collaboration-based ones, eliminating all the obstacles necessary for us to do so, or we will go extinct. We are at our adapt-or-die juncture as a species.

Governments are the cause of many of our problems – they could also easily solve them – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Morrison and Frydenberg celebrated “low unemployment” as a sign of their ” management skills” when it’s really proved to be their “failure”. Qualified workers are simply not available why? They cut the funding to Tech colleges and closed the doors to immigration and now have a backlogged waiting list of visa applications. As a result businesses can’t find the right people needed for the jobs. They can’t even get unskilled workers. What’s more Peter Dutton the worst ever Health Minister was then the Immigration Minister leaving the department struggling with the visa applications. Dutton has now claimed the crown of the worst Immigration Minister ever. These LNP assholes saw us slide down the ladder when compared to other nations and they have been consistently doing it for the past decade. Morrison doing nothing but scaming us in front of the lights cameras and in different costmes telling us we are the best.

When governments have access to the best experts, the latest evidence and analysis and the benefits of a fiat currency, and yet these problems persist, it’s hard not to think that politicians think more about themselves than they do about making decisions in the best interests of the country.
