Hillary Clinton: The gun industry is "the only business in America that is wholly protected from any kind of liability." - Politifact rating: False submitted by skymod to politics

Maybe it's because the right to bear arms is written into the Constitution of The United States of America as the second amendment. Maybe it's not a privilege like cars or phones, but a right, like your right to free speech and freedom from quartering soldiers.

A Government Error Just Revealed Snowden Was the Target in the Lavabit Case submitted by Mixplate to news

avnti 0 points 22 points (+22|-0) ago

It's about time this info comes out! They killed his company to stalk and illegally prosecute a whistle blower while concealing government corruption, over reach, mass spying, unconstitutional behavior, fear mongering and war profiteering

The government crushed a business, a small business, in order to prosecute. Where are the Republicans? Where is the defense of small business? Or the lambasting of big government?

Corporations aren't stupid. They can build infrastructure to help themselves, there's no need for government to do it for us. submitted by Techius to politics

avnti 1 points 20 points (+21|-1) ago

Yeah, here's the issue. When a corporation, uninspired by government, builds infrastructure it will only do so if it satisfies it's own profit motive.

Roads and bridges to and from its own offices will be prioritized or even exclusively addressed. The roads surrounding it's workers common paths may be prioritized to facilitate money being kept in its sphere (think holding companies that own multiple companies in varying sectors). Because of the ease of staying in the corporate bubble is high, more people who work for the company move into the area. Since there are more people who work for the company that live there, shop there, and work there, the voting district shifts. Representatives in government support legislation proffered by the company, further entrenching it's power. Due to cost concerns, the employer lowers wages (after all, it is building roads). The employees have fewer choices because the corporation has permeated the surrounding locality. Eventually, the people who work for the corporation make just enough to drive to work on the company toll roads, and back home because they've been "optimized."

Infrastructure is not just who does what. The while social fabric is tied together. There are many, many factors to consider and giving a corporation the ability to make choices like that without the input of the larger body politic is a disaster.

Unless you think Disney city or whatever it's called, is the future you have in mind.

Wow so peaceful submitted by Coolidges_Ghost to politics

avnti 7 points -6 points (+1|-7) ago

First, the level of condescension in this video, wow.

Second, I want to make clear that because some on the left talk in the language of "love trumps hate" does not mean that violence or aggression is illegitimate.

Here's an example, Hitler wants to kill all the Jews, The Allied Powers value human life in all kinds. The Allied Powers kill the Nazis. If the argument is that peaceful resistance against that kind of threat is the only way to keep integrity intact, I couldn't disagree more.

I think we can look to Malcom X here. I propose that you don't get a Martin Luther King Jr, without Malcom X and the idea that equality will be attained "by any means necessary." It's this violent threat that makes the oppressive forces concede to non-violent demands.

Should our system rely on violence to effectively resist? I fucking hope not. I hope we can learn to be better that that. But until we are, the violent elements will continue to push the powerful to concede, provided there is a peaceful alternative. This is the real reason why non-violent protest should be adhered to, it's easy to be violent. Outrage is powerful and gets the better of us sometimes.

For the left to mount a sufficient resistance it absolutely must be non-violent. But we cannot count on that idea carrying through in all moments, nor be the most persuasive. The violence here is not hypocrisy, its humanity.

Man With Trump Sign Assaulted by Violent Bernie Supporters submitted by EarlPoncho to politics

avnti 7 points -5 points (+2|-7) ago

Not all Bernie supporters are violent, and many call for non-violent action. But when your political demagogue calls for beating up protestors, reporters, and "annoying" people, all I can say is, "you're welcome."

This is why it's absolutely critical that politics be non-violent. Trump calls for violence in rallies and interviews and then his supporters are shocked by violence.

Bernie Sanders, whose supporters are known for screaming racial slurs at civil rights activists, calls all Republicans racist. submitted by BoiseNTheHood to politics

I think it's the whole, "we should label Muslims with a patch" thing that makes him a racist. Nevermind that many Muslims aren't even Arab, but that doesn't matter. Ban the Arabs "Muslims" anyway.
