Maybe the 'ends' aren't what they seem. You shouldn't expect people who created a racist system to even be able to correct it. They think just because slavery was officially abolished there is no more racism, when all that happened was it being shifted, or morphed into the 'corrections' system, for example. Again we must understand that those swimming in privilege will never even know, much less accept that they are. Any attempt to change that will always be framed as 'reverse racism' and 'affirmative action'. It is impossible for them to ever know systematic disenfranchisement when the good life is handed to them on a silver platter.

Correct... Mr. Smith refuses to accept that all governments are subservient to, because they are created by economic power, capitalist and communist alike. And he is just repeating ditto-head nonsense over and over again, damn near word for word.

Comment If you can fix the 'system' (Score 1) 4

Then you have fixed the 'system'. Only the belief that we are helpless keeps us from doing so. 'Heaven on Earth' is at our fingertips.

I would like to simplify the JE, Just sunset all regulations and contracts every 20 years. Hardly a new idea, but one worth trying. The 6000 year old rules we live under now are getting a little long in the tooth. No society should exclude anyone.
