    LOVES to blame the victim. Yes, I made bad choices. I am sure I still do, and just don't have the hindsight vision to see it yet. In ten years, I will be like WHOA that was dumb about a lot of stuff.

    That DOESN'T mean anyone deserves to be hungry, or scared, or cold, or sick.

    One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

      too still make bad choices, most people do, it's part of the process of living. It is blaming the victim and also keeping the populace divided and angry at 'other's'. They moved out the occupiers here and arrested them for breaking city ordinances, and yet they refuse to even call what the bankster's did illegal not to mention the war criminals. Hard to make good choices when your choices become a roof over your head or unfordable insurance health insurance that still doesn't pay for your day to day health care.

        and the thing is they (lack of a better term) literally do not understand that they are threatening people's survival. They can't understand P2P anymore than I can understand making my salary in a day. My CEO makes my salary in a day. How can I expect him, or any of them, to understand what it's like down here in the gallery?

        If you threaten someone's survival they become capable of amazing things. If you don't even know that you are threatening their survival, and lack the empathy to realize the state of mind that puts someone in, you will be really surprised when the amazing things start happening.
