Samsung, corruption, and you - The Verge
"Chaebol is the Korean term for conglomerate. The word comes from the same Chinese characters that form the Japanese term zaibatsu; that those characters roughly translate to “wealth” and “clan” should give you some idea as to how the concept came to be. Many of South Korea’s top conglomerates, like LG, Hyundai, SK, Lotte, and Hanwha, are family-run chaebol where power is traditionally passed down through generations."

The R.U. Sirius Interview: It’s Better to be Inspired than Wired | Lebkowsky | CTheory
"Cyberculture (a meme that I'm at least partly responsible for generating, incidentally) has emerged as a gleeful apologist for this kill-the-poor trajectory of the Republican revolution. You find it all over Wired - this mix of chaos theory and biological modeling that is somehow interpreted as scientific proof of the need to devolve and decentralize the social welfare state while also deregulating and empowering the powerful, autocratic, multinational corporations. You've basically got the breakdown of nation states into global economies simultaneous with the atomization of individuals or their balkanization into disconnected sub-groups, because digital technology conflates space while decentralizing communication and attention. The result is a clear playing field for a mutating corporate oligarchy, which is what we have. I mean, people think it's really liberating because the old industrial ruling class has been liquefied and it's possible for young players to amass extraordinary instant dynasties. But it's savage and inhuman. Maybe the wired elite think that's hip. But then don't go around crying about crime in the streets or pretending to be concerned with ethics."  interview  1996  1990s  r.u._sirius  technology  wired  internet  corporation  power  corruption  society  politics  humanity  republican  theory  1989  1980s  mondo_2000  ethics  communication  jon_lebkowsky  quote  oligarchy  injustice

Fake news is propaganda.
The powerful demanding apologies from artists is censorship.
Business dealings while in office are corruption.
Threatening protesters and petitioners is authoritarianism.
Declaring a minority an internal enemy and calling for militarized unity is fascism.

Nigel Farage’s attack on Jo Cox’s widower is a new low. Enough | Owen Jones | Opinion | The Guardian
"When Farage’s power was queried, Kassam responded with a picture of Farage and Donald Trump in the president-elect’s golden lift. Don’t mess with Farage, was Kassam’s implication, because he now has the patronage of the soon-to-be most powerful man on Earth. (You can donate to Hope not Hate’s legal fund here )"

This shi' crazy. Taken down by a Samsung Galaxy Tab...!

"There is a video of Choi's staff smoking and drinking while eating fried chicken, right next to the suit meant for Park Geun-hye. At one point, one of the staff members handled the suit without even wiping chicken grease from his hands, while breathing smoke onto the clothes. Park Geun-hye would wear this suit on her presidential visit with Xi Jinping."

At Mercy Multiplied, troubled young women come to believe their mental-health counselors speak for God.
"Today, the sixth step in Alcorn’s seven-step counseling model is called Freedom From Oppression—but before 2009, it was called “Demonic Oppression,” according to three former residents. Mercy changed the name shortly after administrators at Mercy-branded facilities in Australia were found to have stolen residents’ welfare checks and local papers reported that employees at these homes were practicing exorcisms."
"Mercy put this disclaimer on its website: “Mercy Ministries does not practice Recovered Memory Therapy.” This past October, when the organization rebranded itself as Mercy Multiplied, the disclaimer disappeared."

The Third Rail
"'History furnishes ... no record of a successful intermingling between the great divisions of mankind,' warned the Baltimore Sun, the organ of city establishment, in 1865. Two decades later, the Sun suggested the best course might be just to 'let the colored people dissipate away.'"

"That was Baltimore mass rail, two decades after the system was proposed: two lines that did not connect, far short of what one needed for the network effect of a true system. Inevitably, the inadequacies of public rail left many Baltimoreans ever more reliant upon the buses — a bewildering scattering of lines that typically followed the old streetcar routes, comprehensible only to those with no alternative but to rely on them."

and Larry Hogan being awful, and more...

The Devastating Story of Washington's Peeping-Tom Rabbi | Washingtonian
"'Converts are the most vulnerable creatures of all,' says Wieseltier. 'They have left what they had, but they have not quite reached where they are going. They are in limbo. The only support they have is from the converting rabbi.'”
"And still the conversion process dragged on. Freundel never told her when she might be ready for the final steps: an audience before three rabbis who composed a conversion court plus a ritual purification bath in the mikvah.

"Months passed. Murphy waited. At a friend’s wedding, Freundel even taunted her: 'This could be you, but it’s not. I control that.'”

Tamir Rice family attorney says expert reports have 'tainted grand jury process' | US news | The Guardian
RT : New: Expert who wrote Tamir Rice report publicly suggested officer was justified before he was asked to review case

"On Monday Chandra, the Rice family attorney, accused McGinty of 'making no effort to secure justice' for Tamir and said that the boy’s mother, Samaria, thought the prosecutor should step aside to allow outside authorities to take charge of the case.

“'Ms Rice has always been wary of the prosecutor but gave him the benefit of the doubt,' he said. 'But she now believes that because he has tainted the process, a special prosecutor would be best.'"

Son of Baldwin – **********SIGNAL BOOST! PLEASE...
@MichaelAWoodJr details "policing that is corrupt, intentional or not"

sonofbaldwin: "When good cops go to their superiors with what they’ve seen, their superiors retaliate by suppressing the truth and leaking to the entire department that the officer is a 'snitch' (police officers are the originators of snitch culture).... In turn, the other police officers take revenge by not responding to the 'good' cop’s calls for help when they are out in the field. They alienate and abuse 'good' cops until they have no choice but to leave the force–that is, if they aren’t set up to be murdered."

The sins of the Argentinian church | Hugh O'Shaughnessy | Comment is free |
"The extent of the church's complicity in the dark deeds was excellently set out by Horacio Verbitsky, one of Argentina's most notable journalists, in his book El Silencio (Silence). He recounts how the Argentinian navy with the connivance of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now the Jesuit archbishop of Buenos Aires, hid from a visiting delegation of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission the dictatorship's political prisoners. Bergoglio was hiding them in nothing less than his holiday home in an island called El Silencio in the River Plate. The most shaming thing for the church is that in such circumstances Bergoglio's name was allowed to go forward in the ballot to chose the successor of John Paul II. What scandal would not have ensued if the first pope ever to be elected from the continent of America had been revealed as an accessory to murder and false imprisonment"

and now he actually IS pope! oop!
