It's easy to stay hidden once you're in. You'd be absolutely amazed how many companies have very strict rules at the entrance but if you manage to get past, there's little more than token security inside.
Why, did China start to settle on their land, too?
Pharma corporations profit from it for crying out loud. Profit! You know, a legal company making profit! How dare you say that's wrong in some way?
So, we have apparently a LOT of people for whom a debt of less than 1000 bucks is crippling enough that they don't simply toss the greens at the collection goon to avoid a "debt dodger" entry...
Phew. So they found a way to explain away a number that could make people ponder whether the "all is fine and the state is in control" message we keep hearing over and over could be wrong and their own observations could be right.
Fuck, even people in communist countries knew that their government is lying to them and that they should more rely on what they see in their reality than the crap they get told...
If you have a million in assets, what do you need a loan for?
We've finally arrived at the point where your only chance to getting a loan is not needing one.
People just finally saw through the lie that the "American Dream" is: Yes, anyone can win. But not everyone. It's like the lottery.
Plus, the "rules" of the game have changed. It used to be "have an idea, work for it, follow it and in the end, with some luck and hard work, you will be successful!". That was the dream. And that even worked. Yes, for some. Not all. Of course, for every single one that succeeded, there were hundreds that failed. But that one success story kept the dream alive.
Today, it's over. The internet managed to keep it rolling for a bit longer than it would have originally and you have a few more of those "rags-to-riches" stories... only that the successful ones were not in rags by any stretch of the word to begin with. But outside those few stories, there is no chance for anyone to succeed. Corporations have the field divided, and there is NO chance for you to become more than a bit player. Ever. The absolute best you may possibly hope for is that you found an area where it's cheaper to simply buy you away than to entangle you in enough red tape that you willingly hand over your stuff.
The new american dream is simply playing the lottery. Same chance of success with less effort. And it's the same game: Anyone can win. Just not everyone.
Hold it, electricity, phone service, all that shit without anyone caring who you are?
What happened to their total surveillance? Commies are getting weak, ya know, we're far further advanced even in one of their core fields they used to excel in!
We must become more like India to stay competitive! We must be first! Even in the race to the bottom!
Hell, even in communist countries, they didn't have much but at the very least they had an apartment for themselves!
As if the figurehead told the ship where to sail...
...but people listen to consultants. They're also like eunuchs. They know how to do it...
Socialism? What socialism? In the US?
Do you know what the word means? Or just the "It's bad to take a cent from the rich" propaganda?
Pretty much their whole catalog is already sub based. But considering you pay like 50-70 per game and year today...
2-3 dollars an hour is interesting at best for people who play games with zero replay value and no long term
Ok, it would actually be a steal for contemporary games.
Personally I think it's cute people think that "it's online" makes much of a difference...
Well, it's not so cute anymore when it comes to laws, but aside of that...
