They have to make sure you and especially all the filthy poors know that they'd rather skewer the homeless than tolerate being aware of their existence.

Yeah, and it has to be omnipresent, that's important. Any place where a homeless person could theoretically sit or lay down that isn't directly in the way of a possible path, because if they decide to lay down on a path or sleep sitting on some stairs or something, that then you can just call the cops on them for disruptive vagrancy.

This may be mindblowing, but people who subscribe to various ideologies can hold a variety of views and beliefs, some of which can be sensible and right, and some of which can be stupid and risible. Forbidding all mockery of these views just because the Other Side also mocks them is a really dumb idea.

Yeah thatís the biggest problem with Contra she seems to think because their ideology isnít consistent or well thought out means they arenít sincere in belief which is loving dangerous. Plus itís kind of playing into the whole holier than though leftist stereotype.

Except if you read the article, the report is not actually suggesting companies not cure diseases as the title implies?

Goldman Sachs Report posted:

To get around the sustainability issue overall, the report suggests that biotech companies focus on diseases or conditions that seem to be becoming more common and/or are already high-incidence. It also suggests that companies be innovative and constantly expanding their portfolio of treatments. This can ďoffset the declining revenue trajectory of prior assets." Lastly, it hints that, as such cures come to fruition, they could open up more investment opportunities in treatments for ďdisease of aging.Ē

The article, as it quotes the report, talks about revenue stream as the patient pool dwindles. You know, very OK and good questions to ask (if you're a sociopath). It treats patients as customers instead of people in need of treatment.

They're working from a definition that includes "the middle class" i.e. people making up to 250-300k, because that's what the Mark Lilla's of the world define it as and how it's generally used as a dogwhistle. From that premise, the vitriol makes sense. It's just a dumb definition of working class, really, and a problem of people fundamentally talking past each other as to what they mean because they're boiling complex economics to 240 characters.

(well, Bob is just an rear end in a top hat tbh)

A guy I was talking to on Twitter called the concept of a discreet "white working class" a discourse scam and it's a really apt description imo. It draws leftists and liberals alike into defending conceptions of working class that make no sense from a Marxist analytical perspective.

i don't even think it's including people that aren't actually working class. i think they can't grasp that college educated, economically comfortable white people are the base for our dumbest president. it's much easier to pass it off on those uneducated bumpkins who don't know any better. it's far more horrific to realize it's the white people living in the suburbs and exurbs even in deep blue states like mine that voted for him.

it's also letting republicans and their voters off the hook as it were for trump. the myth that he is an aberration as opposed to the living embodiment of the southern strategy and a perfect encapsulation of what the right wing media machine turns people into.

the gop has been a white nationalist party for over half century and trump made that more obvious than ever and the media can't handle that because of their obsession with balance. it can't be tens of millions of white people voted for the most openly racist candidate in decades because they're racist. it has to be something else. anything else.
