    That 2nd photo is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

    this pretty much summarizes all i need to know about your socio-economic views you elitist fuckwit.

    Majority = all the fools are on one side

    • Richard Nikoley on September 16, 2014 at 07:10

      Well, at least all those fools aren’t elitist. That’s what’s important.

      Sometimes all (or most) of those fools are elitest in that they think they know better (and do not) than the 1.

      Sometimes the best thing about the article is the photo randomly on top, here some tribal folks squatting at a fire or something, clearly in the 1%.

    Wow Marcus – you are wound a little tight to gather that much info from that post.

    • Richard Nikoley on September 16, 2014 at 09:20

      Well, in his defense, he did say it “summarizes.”

    • marcus+volke on September 18, 2014 at 06:46

      i was infering from past / recent posts labeling hard working laborers as “thieves” for wanting a reasonable paycheck, while exalting in a monopolizing capatilist society which inevitably deepens the economic divide.
      presumably the banksters printing money from nothing and holding the rest of us ransom to the interest, and entraping poor countries in inescapable debt while forcing them to submit to restructuring agreements which whore out their national resources to transnational corporations who destroy the local communities and then compel them to work for their oppressors for $2.00 a day are NOT thieves. nope just good old capatilist innovators thriving on their ingenuity and risk investment god bless them. thats your ‘1%’ richard, and they probably would have shot the guy who didnt salute hitler if they spotted him.

      Problem is, I’ve never said any such thing. Strawman pitched as summary.

    • GS on September 19, 2014 at 07:37

      Are you seriously that fucking ignorant?

    • GS on September 19, 2014 at 07:38

    Yep, definitely wound a little tight.

    No Marcus.

    You’ve misunderstood the post.

    I also agree with a lot of what you just said, but the post is about thinking for yourself and not just going along with the crowd for the sake of it. To think for yourself.

    I

    ” ‘thats your ‘1%’ richard, and they probably would have shot the guy who didnt salute hitler if they spotted him.”

    And, that’s one of the points of the post, in my opinion, Marcus :-

    Be that 1% who stands up to tyranny.

    Be that 1% who will think for themselves and not just follow the herd.

    And, maybe even be that 1% who ends up dying for his beliefs at the hands of the 99%.

    It is now 2021…almost 2022

    Those with their masks on and those who took the vax without question which is over 75% of the population are Not that guy

    Your advice fell on deaf ears

    • Richard Nikoley on November 16, 2021 at 06:19

      That’s for sure.
