Income disparity seems like a much more reliable indicator of how most people are doing. But keep manipulating the data until you can say something good came of it all you want, that's probably the...

Per capita gdp is a horrible way to gauge how the average person is doing. The average person's output can greatly increase, but that doesn't mean they're going to be doing any better for themselves....

Neo-liberal economic policy and liberal policy have nothing to do with eachother. What I'm getting at is that Putin (and russia) are the "problem" they currently are because the west just couldn't...

Kinda hard to take this very seriously when the main motivation (economic power) for all the maneuvering is completely ignored.

Western neo-liberal businessmen, along with former soviet party...

This probably won't make any sense to most, but I'm starting to miss certain aspects of depression.

I always thought antabuse made you puke if you tried to drink.

I have a prescription for naltrexone, and I was told it's mostly used to treat opioid addiction, but it can work with alcoholism....

Think I may have helped cause this. Truly sorry that things got so heated, and I was an insensitive shit.

I'm clearly awful at broaching sensitive issues concerning discrimination, so I'll stick to...
