Police are pretty much thugs here, there, and everywhere

Mexico's and the USA's prison system is run by thugs!   Capitalism has long created and enforced a thug-like prison system. I have recently been told the experience of someone in this system and which thousands of people do too. I am also reading The Trial by Franz Kafkaand I was reminded of this experience. As I listened to this person in tears both of relief because he got out, but also because of complete fear for what happened to those not as lucky as him, I felt sorry for him because even if he was not put back in jail, he won't be able to become anything else because of capitalism's structure. And so here is his story and I hope that this will not be the fate of him, and that someday Mexico's thug-jails will be gone as will the criminality produced by poverty in an alienating system like Capitalism. 38492

Why Are Americans in such a rush to treat People like Dogs?

Americans are always in a rush to go bomb countries, arrest people, torture people and treat its illegal immigrants like criminals and trash. Why are Americans so busy trying to jail innocent people rather than go against the real criminals? Is it because they are plain ignorant or because they don't believe they can fight against such an oppressive gang of thugs. Maybe this type of quote is what Americans take to be sound advice: If you can't beat them. Join them ? Jim Henson, Jim Henson's Storyteller 33471

US use of torture on POWs should stop

The U.S. has a long history of torturing its POWs. Torture of POWs is used by many other countries. However its use is denied by many U.S. authorities or government officials. The definition of torture put simply is to cause pain, emotionally, physically, or psychologically. Torture is used to terrify enemies, and hardly ever gains information. 30563

Ayn Rand SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me first begin with how I was exposed to Ayn Rand. I am in high school and awhile back my teacher was doing a course on homelessness. In a 'prompt' that she gave me as to what are the causes of homelessness, I answered CAPITALISM. A week later I was astonished to get back my paper with a Zero. I showed this to many people all of whom agreed that it was in no way deserving of a zero. My dad and I took this question as to why I had gotten a zero on my paper to the teacher. I wasn't expecting much but even after one hour of asking my English teacher why I had gotten a zero on my paper she had no reasonable answer other than that I had not followed the 'format' correctly, even though I had a previous organizational sheet on which I based my writing on following her format. she ended by saying I was a horrible writer; we gave up trying to get to through to such a numbskull. 30209
