A Cycle of Renewal, Broken: How Big Tech and Big Media Abuse Copyright Law to Slay Competition

By Cory Doctorow

As long we’ve had electronic mass media, audiences and creators have benefited from periods of technological upheaval that force old gatekeepers to compete with brash newcomers with new ideas about what constitutes acceptable culture and art. Those newcomers eventually became gatekeepers themselves, who then faced their own crop of revolutionaries. But today, the cycle is broken: as media, telecoms, and tech have all grown concentrated, the markets have become winner-take-all clashes among titans who seek to dominate our culture, our discourse and our communications.

How did the cycle end? Can we bring it back? To understand the answers to these questions, we need to consider how the cycle worked — back when it was still working...

Mom Thrown in Jail, Her Child Stolen—for Successfully Treating Her Cancer with CBD Oil

By Matt Agorist

In the land of the free, parents whose children voluntarily wish to abstain from chemotherapy and have their parent’s consent, can and will be kidnapped and their parent jailed. This is exactly what is happening to Christina Dixon and her daughter Kylee—in spite of the fact that stopping chemo and using alternative treatment has worked.

“The only reason I’m in this position is because I stood up for my daughter’s life when she was on her last breath,” said Christina. “I’m literally getting punished for saving my daughter’s life.”...

What Student Loans and Health Care Have in Common

By Nicholas C. Anderson

What is the governing dynamic causing both student loans and healthcare burdens to run away from us?

Imagine I invite you and your significant other, life-long friends of mine, to choose the restaurant of your choice whereby I vow to pay 80 percent of the bill. You rightfully choose the best 5-star place in town to enjoy a fantastic meal. There’s no price on the menu and you remind yourself that “if I have to ask, I probably can’t afford it.” Then you remember that I’m going to pay 80 percent of the bill and you go for it. The bill arrives for the two of you and it’s an eye-popping $1,500 for which, of course, you’re responsible for $300. You call me in a fit of confusion...

Leprosy Persists in Los Angeles County, and Elsewhere

Just great! Biblical Diseases are back!

By Will Boggs MD

August 15, 2019

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

"Hansen's disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians," coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Asteroid shock: How asteroid Bennu revealed something NASA scientists weren't ready for

A BILLION dollar NASA space probe has reached a massive asteroid called Bennu – but astonishing new pictures taken from just above the surface have left the US science team very worried.

Because high resolution snaps show asteroid Bennu is actually made up of rocks, not sand as scientists initially predicted – and this poses a problem for the Osiris lander which is about to touch down on the surface. Indeed, the shocking reveal has stunned the world of science.

NASA's probe Osiris-REX has mapped the asteroid's unique surface ahead of next year's planned landing.

But the ship was loaded with tools to land on sand and collect a “beach-like sand substance” - the hyper rocky terrain has now thrown the scientists.

NASA chief Rich Burns said: “Although Osiris-REX was designed to collect a sample from an asteroid with a ‘beach-like’ area.”

American Capitalism Is Based on Plunder The plunder is getting worse

Capitalism is private monopoly,communism is government monopoly.
America is suppossed to be a Free Enterprise Country.
Capitalism,Communism and Fascism as well as Socialism are ALL gifts from ther International Banksters!

Paul Craig Roberts

American capitalism is based on plunder. With the continental USA plundered, American capitalism hoped to continue enriching itself by plundering Russia as it did under Yeltsin, carefully including the Russian “Atlanticist Integrationists” in the spoils in order to have support from the liberal, progressive forces in Russia for stripping Russia of its assets. But Putin more or less put a halt to the American/Israeli rape of Russia, although it still continues through the neoliberal economics that Harvard brainwashed into the Russian central bank and economics profession. Brainwashed Russian economists are the main reason Washington is able to punish a powerful country such as Russia with economic sanctions.

"Jewish Privilege" = Monopoly on Speech

"It is impossible to understand the current wave of internet censorship unless we see it as a Jewish operation." -E. Michael Jones

"Jewish Privilege today finds its primary expression in terms like "hate speech" and "anti-Semitism," which have become weapons wielded to destroy people. The term "hate speech" is a creation of the Anti-Defamation League. Like the analogous term "anti-Semitism," hate speech is any utterance Jews at organizations like the ADL find offensive."
