"What the frick did you just frick say about me, you little witch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Gensokyo Water Spirits, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Scarlet Manor, and I have over 300 confirmed boops.

I am trained in youkawaii warfare and I’m the top kappa in the entire Gensokyo Loli Forces. You are nothing to me but just another baka. I will wipe you the frick out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before in this land, mark my fricking words.

You think you can get away with saying that poop to me over Yukari's GapNet? Think again, baka. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the Youkai Mountain and your magic aura is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, hag. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your boop virginity. You’re fricking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can boop you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands.

Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed snuggle struggle, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Gensokyo Magic Loli Force and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable witch butt off the face of the continent, you little poopy head. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fricking tongue.

But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goshdarn baka. I will squirt fury all over you and you will drown in it.

You’re fricking dead, kiddo."

The big boys get away with a lot more and then can hire lawyers to bollux up the whole thing for years, until the IRS throws in the towel and negotiates a settlement.  A friend of mine spent his entire career at the Justice Department, litigating one case involving a major aircraft manufacturer.  He racked up a lot of frequent flyer miles going from Washington to Washington.

Should we be outraged by any of this? Perhaps in part.  Perhaps not so much.  So long as there are taxes, there will be people willing to cheat on them.  Even back in the days of Monarchs, there were Dukes and Earls who were willing to cheat their own King on tax payments, even if it meant literally losing their heads.  Ideas like tax simplification seem like one "answer" - everyone pays 15% of their income!   The problem is, clever lawyers re-define what "income" is, and thus defeat the scheme.

Cutting taxes sounds appealing, but results in huge deficits, if spending is not cut as well (and both parties have been guilty of this!).   If deficits persist, we end up with inflation, as the currency is devalued. This in turn, acts as a tax on everyone, but particularly the poor, who spend every dollar they have on survival needs (food, clothing, shelter).  Sadly, this seems to be the way the USA is going, having learned nothing from the stagflation era of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

I am not sure what the answer really is, other than it is an ongoing battle since the dawn of time, and everybody thinks they are paying too much and the other guy isn't contributing his fair share.

1. The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have
been a disaster for the human race. They have greatly
increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in
“advanced” countries, but they have destabilized society,
have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings
to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffe-
ring (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and
have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The
continued development of technology will worsen the si-
tuation. It will certainly subject human being to greater in-
dignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world,
it will probably lead to greater social disruption and psy-
chological suffering, and it may lead to increased physical
suffering even in “advanced” countries.
2. The industrial-technological system may survive or it
may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve
a low level of physical and psychological suffering, but
only after passing through a long and very painful period
of adjustment and only at the cost of permanently redu-
cing human beings and many other living organisms to
engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine.
Furthermore, if the system survives, the consequences will
be inevitable: There is no way of reforming or modifying
the system so as to prevent it from depriving people of
dignity and autonomy.
3. If the system breaks down the consequences will still
be very painful. But the bigger the system grows the more
disastrous the results of its breakdown will be, so if it is
to break down it had best break down sooner rather than
4. We therefore advocate a revolution against the in-
dustrial system. This revolution may or may not make use
of violence; it may be sudden or it may be a relatively
gradual process spanning a few decades. We can’t predict
any of that. But we do outline in a very general way the
measures that those who hate the industrial system should
take in order to prepare the way for a revolution against
that form of society. This is not to be a POLITICAL revo-
lution. Its object will be to overthrow not governments
but the economic and technological basis of the present
5. In this article we give attention to only some of
the negative developments that have grown out of the
industrial-technological system. Other such developments
we mention only briefly or ignore altogether. This does not
mean that we regard these other developments as unim-
portant. For practical reasons we have to confine our dis-
cussion to areas that have received insufficient public at-
tention or in which we have something new to say. For
example, since there are well-developed environmental
and wilderness movements, we have written very little
about environmental degradation or the destruction of
wild nature, even though we consider these to be highly
6. Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply
troubled society. One of the most widespread manifesta-
tions of the craziness of our world is leftism, so a discus-
sion of the psychology of leftism can serve as an introduc-
tion to the discussion of the problems of modern society
in general.
7. But what is leftism? During the first half of the 20th
century leftism could have been practically identified with
socialism. Today the movement is fragmented and it is not
clear who can properly be called a leftist. When we speak
of leftists in this article we have in mind mainly socialists,
collectivists, “politically correct” types, feminists, gay and
disability activists, animal rights activists and the like. But
not everyone who is associated with one of these move-
ments is a leftist. What we are trying to get at in discus-
sing leftism is not so much movement or an ideology as a
psychological type, or rather a collection of related types.
Thus, what we mean by “leftism” will emerge more clearly
in the course of our discussion of leftist psychology. (Also,
see paragraphs 227-230.)
8. Even so, our conception of leftism will remain a good
deal less clear than we would wish, but there doesn’t seem
to be any remedy for this. All we are trying to do here is
indicate in a rough and approximate way the two psycho-
logical tendencies that we believe are the main driving
force of modern leftism. We by no means claim to be tel-
ling the WHOLE truth about leftist psychology. Also, our
discussion is meant to apply to modern leftism only. We
leave open the question of the extent to which our discus-
sion could be applied to the leftists of the 19th and early
20th centuries.
9. The two psychological tendencies that underlie mo-
dern leftism we call “feelings of inferiority” and “over-
socialization”. Feelings of inferiority are characteristic of
modern leftism as a whole, while oversocialization is cha-
racteristic only of a certain segment of modern leftism;
but this segment is highly influential.
10. By “feelings of inferiority” we mean not only infe-
riority feelings in the strict sense but a whole spectrum
of related traits; low self-esteem, feelings of powerless-
ness, depressive tendencies, defeatism, guilt, self-hatred,
etc. We argue that modern leftists tend to have some such
feelings (possibly more or less repressed) and that these
feelings are decisive in determining the direction of mo-
dern leftism.
11. When someone interprets as derogatory almost any-
thing that is said about him (or about groups with whom
he identifies) we conclude that he has inferiority feelings
or low self-esteem. This tendency is pronounced among
minority rights activists, whether or not they belong to the
minority groups whose rights they defend. They are hy-
persensitive about the words used to designate minorities
and about anything that is said concerning minorities. The
terms “negro”, “oriental”, “handicapped” or “chick” for an
African, an Asian, a disabled person or a woman origi-
nally had no derogatory connotation. “Broad” and “chick”
were merely the feminine equivalents of “guy”, “dude” or
“fellow”. The negative connotations have been attached
to these terms by the activists themselves. Some animal
rights activists have gone so far as to reject the word
“pet” and insist on its replacement by “animal compa-
nion”. Leftish anthropologists go to great lengths to avoid
saying anything about primitive peoples that could concei-
vably be interpreted as negative. They want to replace the
word “primitive” by “nonliterate”. They seem almost para-
noid about anything that might suggest that any primitive
culture is inferior to our own. (We do not mean to imply
that primitive cultures ARE inferior to ours. We merely
point out the hyper sensitivity of leftish anthropologists.)
12. Those who are most sensitive about “politically in-
correct” terminology are not the average black ghetto-
dweller, Asian immigrant, abused woman or disabled per-
son, but a minority of activists, many of whom do not
even belong to any “oppressed” group but come from
privileged strata of society. Political correctness has its
stronghold among university professors, who have secure
employment with comfortable salaries, and the majority
of whom are heterosexual white males from middle- to
upper-middle-class families.
13. Many leftists have an intense identification with the
problems of groups that have an image of being weak
(women), defeated (American Indians), repellent (homo-
sexuals) or otherwise inferior. The leftists themselves feel
that these groups are inferior. They would never admit to
themselves that they have such feelings, but it is preci-
sely because they do see these groups as inferior that they
identify with their problems. (We do not mean to suggest
that women, Indians, etc. ARE inferior; we are only ma-
king a point about leftist psychology.)
14. Feminists are desperately anxious to prove that wo-
men are as strong and as capable as men. Clearly they are
nagged by a fear that women may NOT be as strong and
as capable as men.
15. Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image
of being strong, good and successful. They hate America,
they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they
hate rationality. The reasons that leftists give for hating
the West, etc. clearly do not correspond with their real
motives. They SAY they hate the West because it is war-
like, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but
where these same faults appear in socialist countries or
in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them,
or at best he GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; whe-
reas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points out (and often greatly
exaggerates) these faults where they appear in Western
civilization. Thus it is clear that these faults are not the
leftist’s real motive for hating America and the West. He
hates America and the West because they are strong and
16. Words like “self-confidence”, “self-reliance”, “ini-
tiative”, “enterprise”, “optimism”, etc., play little role
in the liberal and leftist vocabulary. The leftist is anti-
individualistic, pro-collectivist. He wants society to solve
every one’s problems for them, satisfy everyone’s needs
for them, take care of them. He is not the sort of person
who has an inner sense of confidence in his ability to solve
his own problems and satisfy his own needs. The leftist is
antagohistic to the concept of competition because, deep
inside, he feels like a loser.
17. Art forms that appeal to modern leftish intellec-
tuals tend to focus on sordidness, defeat and despair, or
else they take an orgiastic tone, throwing off rational
control as if there were no hope of accomplishing any-
thing through rational calculation and all that was left was
to immerse oneself in the sensations of the moment.

Probably a long angry review on product from John Deere, Apple, Tesla, or some other anti right to repair company that makes getting parts or schematics a pain in the ass. Sure Nitori loves tinkering but when she can't fix a consumers product quickly she can't get paid which means she has to ration her cucumbers which is never good.

Don't buy these products, your feeding the beast if you do rather than feeding Nitori your hard earned shekels.
