seriously though, that picture is depressing, he only has a single gold chain on and that girl is obviously so impoverished that she couldnt even get her sleeve tattoo completed.

You want the starving children to be the ones protesting then? The other people shouldn't be protesting and pointing out the obvious ringers?

"Because things are even worse in Africa, you can't whine!"

no i won't be typing it again, but do you have some sort of an answer for me? I'm fine if you don't want everyone on the forum to see the shortcomings of your stupid posts spelled out for you, but certainly if you have something to say in defence of all that silliness I'm interested to hear it.

Roald   Tuvalu. Oct 23 2011 18:29. Posts 2683

I made my point and youre talking total nonsense putting words in my mouth.

you made no point: the attempts towards making a point were found inadequate in the post you for some reason deleted. Anyhow if my post was "nonsense" and "dumbass" I would believe you could not humiliate me more effectively than by letting everyone see how stupid it was.

Well thanks for the interesting discussion, I take it you have nothing in defence of the retardness pointed out in my post.

Roald   Tuvalu. Oct 23 2011 18:50. Posts 2683

From the first post you made you put words in my mouth. The post i deleted wandered into slanderous which is not ok

All I said was that the people protesting still live better than 99 percent of the worlds population. Anything more you read into it is on you

I'm rather surprised by this new-found sensitivity towards slanderous posts, for you yourself called me a "dipshit" in the post I answered to. Only to point out how you were "wandering into slanderous" did I call you a "stupid fuck" (which I explicitly stated in the post too by the way).

You certainly did not "only say that people protesting are still better off than 99 % of the worlds population". Instead you mocked the protesters by calling them "fucking hippies" in context of an silly comparison. Also if you are not trying to say that their protest is in some sense pointless or funny, why did you make this post at all? Unless you think that other people have having more serious problems disvalidates they protests, why is it interesting how many people are worse off than them?

And the comment on protests was not all you said: there is the separate issue of "Go tweet from your mac book pro about how much you hate capitalism". The part of my post answering to this I will type again because I'm sick and tired of hearing this retarded bullshit all over again and would for once like to have someone admitting how insanely stupid this old joke is.

"What are you trying to say? Are you perhaps implying that I cannot criticise capitalist world-system because I've gained from it? Just like the intellectuals in Soviet Russia should have shut up about the issues of USSR because they had recieved free education, free health care and (essentially) free housing from the very system they turned against? Or perhaps you mean that as long as I participate in capitalism I should shut up? In your opinion I ought to go live in a forest in complete autarchy in order to gain right to be critical towards capitalism?"

The point you seem completely unable to grasp is that I am objecting to them painting themselves as the poor 99 percent as if they lived in one of those countries where 99 percent starve while the one percent fly around in private jets.

Sorry I didn't spell it out more clearly for you

I support the right to protest and think there are some points to be made but their way is wrong

USA has wealth ginicoefficient 0,8 which makes it #5 most unequal country in the world in terms of wealth distribution, and #1 Namibia is not far ahead (being very far ahead would be impossible too, for gini 1 means that one person owns everything). So unless you are saying that their protest is silly because they are not doing as poorly in absolute terms as their african brothers I dont see what point are you making?

  I support the right to protest

I never thought you did not support their right to protest. I thought you objected their protest, which is a completely different thing.

auffen, he's not gonna know what gini is...but +1 for auffens side as the 1% in america have a detrimental effect on these "third world countries" (hate using this term but i'm pretty sure roald won't understand if i used something else) with different types of exploitation and massively unbalanced trade relations to scratch the surface of which there are obviously many more we can get into. But these "hippies" are against people making billions while others suffer which includes the first picture you put up Roald

indeed it is laughable that some of the top 10% are complaining about their own supposed poverty, but what i find more disgusting is the people that won't join this protest to help the poorest people, only because they are afraid of looking like a liberal douche with an arts degree. The rich have accidentily divided and conquered the middle class by separating them into different stereotypes that hate/laugh at each other, which in turn makes them think irrationally.

lol NighTLesS15 you are fucking pretentious. "he's not going to know that means"

gini coefficient is a great way to take statistics and say whatever the hell you want with them aka "lies, damn lies, and statistics". What about the human development index? This is a stupid game we're playing now.

I say protest some of the bullshit that went down but don't try to paint yourselves as the real victims as there are people who really are victims of all this around the world.

I've said what I had to say and don't even completely disagree with you guys except for how they're painting themselves. Maybe I don't communicate it well enough or maybe you guys are fucking retarded. Either way, this isn't a productive use of my time so that's enough of this for me

OP is crap. trying to make change vs very powerfully entrenched hyper-rich class of people is not going to happen if we all go "o look at the african babies, at least we're not them ( yet )". you basically referenced the OWS protests and then posted something completely frivolous... you're a trollin' and didn't even know it ????????
