The trope that the people you are killing don’t value life is repeated in various colonial contexts, not just by Israel about Palestinians. Listen to General William Westmoreland speak about “orientals” which the US was slaughtering in Vietnam -

To Trump’s Christian supporters, treason is just “reason” with a crucifix in front of it.

Capitalism has only existed for about 400 years, given its absolute maximum timeline, which is the timeline that includes the Atlantic Slave Trade. Industrial capitalism has only existed for about 150 years. Humanity has existed for more than 100,000 years.

There is no greater historical amnesia then the idea that capitalism has always existed, and yet, this idea is far more pervasive than you would think. This idea is poisonous. It corrodes all potential for change. Don’t let the rich ghouls who control the world erase our collective history. We have been different, we are building something different now, and things will and can be different in the future. Humanity will outlive capitalism, if we have anything to say about it.

Student debt crisis watch: pay $18,000 of your $24,000 loan, owe $24,000

mostlysignssomeportents:

Kaitlin Cawley finished grad school with $95,000 in student loans, including a $24,000 variable-rate loan that started at 9.4% and now stands at 11%, a loan that the US government lender Sallie Mae brokered for her when she was 20.

Sallie Mae’s portal makes it almost impossible to find out how much you’ve paid into your loans; after a lengthy runaround, Cawley found that she had paid back $18,000 of her $24,000 loan, but that she still owed the full amount, thanks to sky-high interest and stiff penalties the government assessed against her because she opted to save tens of thousands of dollars by going to grad school outside of the USA.

Cawley comes from a working-class background and her family was not able to substantially offset the expense of her university. She attended anyone, convinced that postsecondary education was the path to social mobility. Despite an advanced degree, Cawley lives in relative penury, largely thanks to her student debt.

Americans owe $1.4 trillion in student debt. Student debts are largely not dischargeable through bankruptcy, and is the only form of debt that you can be forced to pay your Social Security into.

The President of the United States has declared bankruptcy six times. His university defrauded its students of millions of dollars, which they are still paying back. He enacted a policy that makes it impossible for defrauded students to escape their loans; while his Secretary of Education has killed the rules that prevented debt-collectors with a track-record of committing illegal acts from collecting student debts.

Last month, the student debt industry’s top expert was revealed to be an imaginary person, puppeted by industry executives.

Coservatives: Wow what a smear campaign. We dont hate poor people, we just want them to take responsibility for themselves!
