The country has been remarkably successful at using its economic clout to minimise international criticism, while limiting outside and foreign access

sorry, which country are we talking about again?

like /u/celebratedrecluse has already said, this whole piece is fucking disgusting and this isn't excusing what is being done in the country this article is about, but bloody fucking hell, at a minimum, have a modicum of introspection.

oh those lovely "anti-nihilism" tears of this poor man-baby will be delicious as he and his trolls moan over his FREEZE PEACH being repressed

I read part of one of his books because a family member asked me to. he's fucking nonsensical who either doesn't understand philosophy or is disingenuous. my bet is it's somewhere in the middle. he, sam harris, joe rogan and any other "dark web intellectual" can take a flying fucking leap off a tall cliff

I'm right here with you. I'm getting tired of heads of companies deciding that profits trump people's lives and safety and getting away with it even after disastrous consequences, at most paying some paltry fine to a government or having a pitiful payout to those that survive their victims, or the victims/survivors themselves. they used to at least be afraid people would throw them from the tops of buildings. now they just dgaf because nothing will happen to them. nothing.

letting these assholes walk away with a small "fine" (which is what will likely happen if anything), and as you said as individuals and not as a company, is letting murderers go free. it needs to bankrupt and destroy them monetarily. that would be the bare minimum because nothing can bring back those that were murdered.

Boeing jets in Ethiopia and Indonesia lacked two safety features in their cockpits because the company charged extra to install them.

[The crashed planes] were brand new but were not equipped with an angle of attack indicator or an angle of attack disagree light...

Boeing will now make the disagree light free of charge on all new 737 Max planes, after the deadly crashes caused all the Max planes to be grounded... The angle of attack indicator will remain an option that airlines can purchase...

“They’re critical, and cost almost nothing for the airlines to install,” Bjorn Fehrm, an analyst at aviation consultancy Leeham, told the Times. “Boeing charges for them because it can. But they’re vital for safety.”

half-assed measures after the fact are cold comfort for those that survive the people on those flight who were murdered by those running boeing. this wasn't an accident. they made a conscious decision to put lives at risk simply for a few extra bucks which wouldn't have even made a small dent in their profit margins.

very much so, it makes me sad that my entire family still are "faithful" members of a cult that does some of this same shit such as treating women like property and telling men to make sure women don't forget it (though with less violent words, even though the end result is still violence against women and others that don't fit their binary worldview)

I know, my mind just has a tendency to amplify the abrahamic ones since the cult I grew up in comes from that vein. I'm not a fan of organized religion in general as they seem to harbor right-wing tendencies (again, my bias) and tend to treat women as objects/property (I also know there are exceptions and some are better but due to how organized religion is structured, it's anti-anarchistic and the ability to abuse power is there regardless of whether they currently do or not). Also, in general it's not the practitioners but the leaders that foster and inspire a lot of this among others. if that makes any sense.

great article, I will definitely be rereading this one later

I did find it a bit laughable that at the end there's a link

If you are a man who is seeking more authentic and lasting connection in your life, The Mankind Project is ready to help

you click on the link and it's about a "warrior course" (first red flag) and how they want to help men connect and live better lives...FOR ONLY $75 FOR THE FIRST THREE WEEKS!!! lolz capitalism strikes again

I was reading the article thinking "oh shit, this is gonna be bad..." and then

social unrest, and looting would occur

well, maybe not everything about it would be bad.

joking aside, this is not good especially for anyone with special needs of one kind or another. are there realistic means for people to build their own local power grids? I'm not just talking about in s africa but in other places, particularly where each of us live, without having to shell out money to the likes of musk.
