“Then there was the educated Texan from Texas who looked like someone in Technicolor and felt, patriotically, that people of means – decent folk – should be given more votes than drifters, whores, criminals, degenerates, atheists and indecent folk – people without means.”Joseph Heller

Regarding the Coronavirus on New Year's Day 2022

"So basically the only way we got a virus so pathogenic as the novel coronavirus was illegal gain-of-function escaped from the lab. Big Pharma took the opportunity to reap huge profits from a repurposed gene therapy mRNA platform and meanwhile the virus kills a few million people. Nature eventually reasserts on the virus (and populations) leading to omicron: very infectious, not very pathogenic."

"End result. The world has a new cold for everyone. Big Pharma makes billions. Dr Fauci needs to be in jail."

Real Estate: Daily Mail - Million Pound Postal Codes

10 new postal codes join the millionaire club

This is silly estate agent clickbait. Most of London's properties (freeholds) are cut up into flats. Imagine a street lined with 20 stucco-fronted Edwardian townhouses, £4 million average house price. £80 million of real estate. Rich enough to be in this millionaire club. Then imagine the same street, exact same 20 buildings, with 8 period conversions in each, £700K average flat price. £112 million of real estate. Not rich enough to be in the millionaire's club.


Rich Racism v Poor Racism
The kinds of racism still engaged in by the wealthy and the powerful – such as the theft of entire regions’ resources under a thinly veiled update of ‘the white man’s burden’ (basically ‘the savages can’t govern themselves’), or profiteering from a racially unjust legal and prison system – are far more egregious and damaging. Yet these forms of racism are given far less attention than racism as simple name-calling. All said and done, the idea of racial hierarchy and the attendant philosophy of innate white superiority were not invented by poor people, and while we are not excusing the central role that everyday racism has played in upholding racial hierarchies in the UK and elsewhere, our critique should not rest there.
