Comment Re:Trump just says stuff (Score 1) 875

Many living in modern society forget the primacy of sovereign state over capital. Especially when that sovereign state has your finances and your physical presence by the balls.

The reason why it looks to be the other way around is corruption induced by said capital, and why people in the system are afraid of Trump. He may actually exercise state primacy over capital.

Winamp remained relevant throughout the ages. Issue companies and shills take with it is that it's not monetizeable, simply because it's a perfectly working product that doesn't need any major updates and isn't dependent on developer's servers.

It just works on user's computer, and remains among the best if not the best audio player on windows to date.

Not only that, but original prosecutor laughed the woman out of his office as her story obviously didn't meet even Swedish standards. Then "suddenly" prosecutor was changed in a couple of weeks and current situation started.

Could be that it had nothing to do with it. Or it could be that what diplomatic cables stated about Sweden and its leading politicians were dead on.

Swedes tried this. They really did.

In about two decades, they went from Palme to Bildt. US has extreme amount of ability to unseat politicians they do not like and replace them with those they do when they need it. Results were very visible in everything ranging from Sweden's eroded political neutrality to things like incarceration of people US didn't like (i.e. Pirate Bay case, "inappropriate sexual conduct" charges against Assange). From most vocally neutral to most Finlandized country in Europe in just a couple of decades.

Believe me when I say this, you do not want the evil juggernaut that is US security and intelligence apparatus turning on politicians in your country. They will not last long.
