We got a partial win – Apple is ordered to pay back taxes. Big thanks to our new hero Margrethe Vestager. Make sure to send her a thank you tweet and tell her to go after the others. We found another hero – Nick Hanauer. He is a multi-billionaire and he wrote this piece, we love it so […]
Open up the offshore tax havens to EVERYBODY!
Why can’t we all use tax havens? Why is it only multinational cooperations and really rich individuals that are able to use small islands in some warm place to stash away all their profits so they never have to contribute to our society? Apple could easily pay for 70% of the Us Federal budget for […]

This is the last thing you will see when the world ends – on CNN

People are waking up slowly, we all see changes around us. It was the hottest September ever in The Netherlands. Felt like summer last few weeks. I stumbled upon […]
America’s mass incarceration, uprise in hate against jews & a large wall street scam
The United States is locking up its population. The main ethnic group in prison are black people. It does not look good for the land of opportunities if you look at those two statistics alone: Millions and millions people are being warehoused. And many of those are black. Are black people committing more crimes than […]
Food stamps vs Sotheby’s
I found those two charts. First one shows Sotheby’s peaking with every financial bubble in past. A few days ago there was an all time high auction. The second one shows that more and more people are dependent on food stamps since 2007. Guess I must not need to say more. As there are 45 […]
Industrial civilisation headed for ‘irreversible collapse’?
A new study sponsored by Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Center has highlighted the prospect that global industrial civilisation could collapse in coming decades due to unsustainable resource exploitation and increasingly unequal wealth distribution. From the study: “The fall of the Roman Empire, and the equally (if not more) advanced Han, Mauryan, and Gupta Empires, as […]
