But what do I know?
As to my absence I've been a bit overwhelmed by work stuff, sorry about that, it's no excuse
Profits were not distributed amongst employees.
Uh, yes they were, actually. £35m in profits were distributed. That's 30% of their £105m total revenue.
So, what, are you saying their net margin was something like 70-80% and the other 40-50% of that money got transferred offshore? That seems implausible but if you have some kind of source I'd be open to reading it.
So what you're saying is...you would be in favor of distributing profits among all employees? Which is what I said also. Yes inequality is a problem that's why I said what I said. I'm befuddled why you would essentially agree with me but phrase it as though you're taking a contrary position.
Right but so what? I didn't say it was likely to be supported by non-participating shareholders. If we only proposed changes that already had the support of every stakeholder nothing would change, ever.
This is actually the way I'd like to see all businesses work. Distribute profits among all employees and tax it as individual income. In a time of stagnant wages and rising inequality what about this practice is bad?
ummmm... you might actually try reading what he wrote. Mighty big of you to say that he agrees with what you are saying.
Thank you for so astutely reading that thread; I thought maybe I was losing my mind
What is right wing about filing a lawsuit to unmask a doe, suing that person, then settling for a much smaller amount. It seems this is used by many different trolls, and likely doesn't have any political ideology behind it. It is sleazy though. Filing a lawsuit with the intention of settling just to get a payout is wrong. It is short circuiting the justice system for personal profit.
Yeah that's neither right nor left, it's the universal language of greedy bloodsuckers.
What is right wing about that process? The Democrats support the movie industry, not the Republicans.
The fact that Democrats support something doesn't negate the possibility of something being right wing. The Democrats are not ideologically pure, or ideologically homogenous, and very few of them can be considered "left".
To me, pretending that copyright is only about property rights, and ignoring the fact that copyright was also supposed to be about free speech and about making material available for free to the public after a limited time, is definitely "right wing".
