The Internet's Network Efficiencies Are Destroying the Middle Class

Torvac not the goal (674 comments)

the fruits of modern technology abused for corporate interests. that is a big part of what is killing classes. instead of making life better and easier for everyone its all about profits for a few lazy thiefs. ofc those in power have an interest in destroying the lower classes, else their system cant work - be it technology, silly laws, propaganda and religion.

Torvac Re:Shocking (267 comments)

Sure suddenly she is pissed. after months of playing this down and going along with the US. And ofc the reason can't be that the EU parlaments position against the NSA spying (suspend SWIFT etc. ) was just published yesterday and she has to position herselfes with the EU now. despicable politicians and their shitty games, really fuck her.

US, Germany To Enter No-Spying Agreement

Torvac Re:Mutual spying agreement (209 comments)

yes, it will probably mean that germany has to do the job for the USA in their own country from now on. just like other data transfer agreements in the EU in the past the US will find ways to blackmail germany again to agree to their terms (which is not hard if you spy on all EU politicians and know how to persuade them just the way you want).
