Comment Jar of spiders (Score 1) 893

In my opinion the modern politics turned into a jar of spiders. Everybody eavesdrop, dislike, and attack each other. It is amplified significantly for someone like me who knows foreign languages and can watch it all from several sides.

I begin to wonder if Mikhail Bakunin's ideas were really that much farfetched, if the state as an institution is necessary at all. Or is it just turned into a source of mutual misunderstanding and hostility.

Comment Human nature (Score 1) 277

I think it is about the same all over the world. The same as violence against women, it's about 30% everywhere, 1 of 3 women, by the WHO statistics:

Recall what was in John Podesta email messages, which became known just by a mere accident, because he did not use two steps authentication on his Gmail. It is about the same everywhere, as it is a property of Homo Sapiens.

I think that the wrath of the US political elite could be explained by the fact that the small potatoes dared to trespass its territory.

They invested billions and years of organized hard work in software & hardware back doors, surveillance infrastructure, data centers, and suddenly some punks have stolen some simple email passwords. The whole world was reading with the genuine interest these email messages.

Certainly in their opinion it may seem so unfair. It is their pitch, they are the kings, but not these parvenus.
