America's authoritarianism (tags)
Donald Trump declared himself the winner, although the votes are far from being counted. His contempt for democracy knows no bounds.

The Failure of Modern Western Society (tags)
Wind down from your artificially induced stress/pace and confront your personal reality – take stock for a moment. Your existence has been confined to sustaining and maintaining a system that makes ever-increasing demands on your liberty and freedom – the pillars upon which joy and satisfaction are built/derived! The frenzied pace of western society is largely the result of the manic need for ever increasing profits and greater concentrations of wealth in the fewest possible hands, which inevitably makes higher demands on those at the bottom of the financial scale.

Put simply, profit is exploitation/theft!
