The article is sparse, so I was wondering more what the Soviet justification was specifically, and what it was founded on, since that doesn't mention it.

Is there any source on Kazakh nomads being 'kulaks' to the Soviets?

No I don't want to know your name, you're just the server that's going to bring me my food, and, yes, in that sense, you WILL be taking care of me; it's part of your job. If you don't get paid enough, that's between you and your employer.

Quick suggestion - go fuck yourself.

Stores currently raise prices they say to offset for loss, human error, and theft. If everyone suddenly stopped shoplifting do you think the stores would turn around and lower prices or pay their employees a higher wage?

Of course they wouldn't. That's a joke. They'd find literally any excuse, or even use the same excuse if nobody stole from them. Nobody will pay if they can avoid it.

  1. Our own government has yet to condemn these harmful laws.

Naturally, we followed up by asking about the best way for people all over the world to help queer folks in Brunei. The Brunei Project is “focusing on action that has some chance of bringing about change to these horrendous laws in Brunei … we are asking people … to please lobby their governments to hold the Brunei Government responsible for this blatant disregard for human rights

Demand that Great Britain threaten the removal of the military base Brunei pays them to host inside their borders for protection unless all demands are met.

Lobby local governments to hold the Brunei Government responsible for this blatant disregard for human rights by taking action that will directly target the Brunei Government.

What total shit. The best way for people to help queer people in Brunei is by... begging the United States and United Kingdom to please, please liberate them? And, if demands are met, the British should stay on Borneo?

It seems they reject it entirely. I hear they cancelled statements out of fear of looking too radical now.
