Just how autistic are we talking here cause if that just means you'll have someone to get high and watch Star Trek with then I don't see the problem.

Ghislaine Maxwell Taken Off Suicide Watch

How many days do you all give her before an 'accident' occurs?

The Batlord 08-11-2020 09:29 PM

Luckily women suck at suicide. She'll probably just tie her hands behind her back and force a handful of Advil down her throat.

Yeah, "suicide". :laughing:

There's definitely room for creativity. But creativity attracts too much attention. If she's among other prisoners, I'm still laying my chips on the COVID-19 death scenario due to some previously unkown comorbidity that complicated things more extremely and accelerated the process more than anyone could've possibly realized before it was too late.

TBH I don't think it needs to be that creative. I mean Epstein was clearly murdered or at least his death is so questionable that no one should be comfortable with it, and yet no one cares. So long as there isn't video footage of her being murdered shoved in front of the public, people are just going to shrug at whatever happens and chock it up to yet another Roswell.

This is why capitalism is cancer. Not just because the rich oppress the working class, but because the working class let it happen because they just don't want to do stuff.

You might very well be right in regards to the deed not needing to be creative - hell, they might be able to play out the same narrative of sleepy guards and malfunctioning cameras and a majority of people wouldn't give a toss or pay it an ounce of their attention. But I fail to see the relation here between the general public not caring about Epstein's death and capitalism. What do you mean?

I mean it's not restricted to capitalism, but seeing as capitalism is predominant in the world it doesn't matter whether it's a specific ill of capitalism.

People just want the world to function. They don't need it to function to their exact specifications. They just need to be able to live their lives, have food available, have their waste dealt with, and have expected utilities like electricity flow. I mean people lived with some degree of satisfaction under feudalism, Nazism, Sovietism, the Roman Empire, whatever, and didn't burn down society.

People are just willing to accept whatever the ruling class do no matter what they do so long as people can eat. And since capitalism is the current world system if capitalism can provide that while shoveling propaganda down our throats about how only capitalism can provide this stability even though stability is something that can be provided by any functional governmental system capitalism can pretend to be the greatest system ever devised no matter how abusive it actually is.

And since capitalism is uniquely equipped to provide propaganda through private marketing that can masquerade as something other than propaganda it is a unique form of cancer that the human race is historically unqualified to deal with. Capitalism is the highest form of governmental control because it can appear friendly and unassuming like a Sunny D commercial. Because governmental control is a Sunny D commercial.
