This is not addressed nearly enough.
Goddammit I miss drugs. Alcohol is amazing, but it’s complimented in the best way by drugs. Fuck you, epilepsy.
Labour theory of value right there.
People say Marxism is complex - but it is just common sense, people can understand it in their everyday lives.
"A cop is far more likely… to kill you than you are to kill a cop… The idea that police have an incredibly dangerous job is what we Southerners call a tall-tale, a stretch of the truth to bolster an ego unwilling to accept mediocrity. Not to take away from what many fair-minded officers do every day, but as those stubborn things called facts would have it, policing is less dangerous than farming, fishing, logging, and trash collecting, as well as six other professions. Now is the time to burst the cop myth and to stop giving them the deference to murder our friends and family in the street.”

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
I do not see how my oppressor could sit in judgment on my response to his oppressive actions against me… If the enemy defines morality and legality in his own terms and decides to apply his ethical and legal doctrines against me because he has the power as well as the means of communications to justify his inhumanity, I am under no moral obligation to listen, let alone obey his dictates. Indeed, I am under a moral obligation to resist and to fight to the death the enemy’s moral corruption.

upon reading the first sentence, my mind immediately thought “oh delicious, Rainier tall boys (16oz for you non-murricans [rainier is a beer typically found in the northwest region of MURCA]) but then I realized that it was a slight against hobbits, and that’s not okay.
It’s a cute little thing though.
Their lives, in short, will be transformed. The value to these patients, and to their loved ones and society—you can’t put a price tag on it.
Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) President John Castellani • Defending the price of Sovaldi, the hepatitis C drug which is extremely effective, but costs $1,000 per day to take. A full regimen of treatment costs $84,000, a level that effectively shuts out most of the people that would need to take it. (via shortformblog)
No, this is wrong no matter how you look at it. Medication that can save lives in this capacity should never cost the people who need it the most. This is a disturbing thought among capitalists; they see these commodities as ‘price tags’ instead of a cure for a serious disease.
