The Shit Lords in Holland

Peter Stuyvesant Square is located in New York City, between 15th and 17th street and 1st and 3rd avenue. Aptly named, it is a small encapsulated natural preserve, amidst the cold backdrop of sprawling concrete and steel. Incidentally, the premier high school for science, mathematics and technology was also located within this vicinity. This was(…)

Dumbing Down Society in a subtle incremental manner makes for a highly efficient method of long term control. Placing emphasis on certain non-intellectual activities is just one of the simplest and effective strategies for achieving a docile apathetic response.

McDonalds Charges Toilet Fee: Pissing Against The Wind For € .20

McDonalds Charges Toilet Fee: Pissing Against The Wind For € .20

McDonald’s Charges Toilet Fee in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Let it be clear this is not a rant comparing aspects of socialism against capitalism. However, living in a modern plutocracy ruled by an oligarchy of technocrats, banker-politico robber barons and PC apologists, does influence one’s perception and cultural bias. Needless to say I was not impressed(…)
