    theft are not the same.

    It's not a matter of whether they are both crimes, it's the fact that only one category is ever prosecuted, the side that has a much lower material impact on a per perpetrator basis.

    It's the same as a guy who goes to jail for 15 years for stealing a $100 while Wall St. goes scott-free.

    The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries. -WiA "When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill..." - PhilJD
