Why didn't he take them to court for breaking the law and illegally firing him? Instead of the tank thing. Seems like he could have won if the evidence was so obvious this company was juicing their antennas beyond the legal limit.

I worked in scientific research myself and can tell you some people care much more about securing the next grant than the truth. Not everyone of course, there are many scientists that take the scientific method seriously, but there is a reproducibility crisis for many studies, especially in psychology.
There is not much funding for repeat studies, or studies that disprove other studies. Everyone wants the new breakthrough study.
There is something fundamentally immoral about the U.S. state and its military being able to impose death and destruction on so many with almost no opposition from the public. This is why building an Anti-war movement is imperative because the "steady state" is committed to war. by The_In-Betweener in politics

I agree 100%. We need an anti-war party.
Especially since both major parties are seemingly pro-war and pro-military-industrial complex. There is the green party, but it's trying to flip the script on many issues at once and it ends up making them unpopular...
And I think Bernie Sanders was anti-war but he was boxed out by the DNC. And then didn't fight it. Perhaps he did this so he can run again and maybe win by overwhelming margins next time. But it seems unfortunately more likely that he is controlled opposition by the DNC, to make it look like the DNC cares about all the anti-war people, to get their votes.
There should be a single-issue anti-war party. It could get a lot of votes.

Businesses are not cruel. Companies are about voluntarily transactions.
Businesses are not cruel. Companies are about voluntarily transactions.
Oh is that why all these major monopolies extinguish their competition through regulatory capture? They don't give a fuck about voluntary transactions. They just want profit by any means.
Also you keep generalizing all Americans as if we're some retarded hive mind that has no detractors. Two Americans built this website you're posting on.
Stop pinning a corrupt government and corrupt businesses on "Americans" who largely had nothing to do with having their rights stolen.

When I first read this I thought it said Iraq.
Now that I see it's Iran, I see what a big deal this could be... I wonder if this will be the spark for a 1954-style revolution where the US will install a leader that replaces Khamenei

Thus showing more proof Trump and his insider team are Zionists
Or this could just be someone LARPing. This is from 4chan after all... But it's then published by the wikileaks twitter, which is odd. They just post stuff from 4chan and say it's Q? Or are they doing the scarequotes around "Qanon" to imply they think the whole thing is silly?
I don't know quite what I'm supposed to take away from the OP tbh

Is Hungarian similar to German?
I've studied Mandarin Chinese for a decade and I'm about 40% fluent. I love the written characters and their etymologies. I also have terrible Spanish that I half-remember from high school haha.
And it would be cool to know German and French, so I try to pay attention to them when I come across them. They're pretty similar to English, as English is composed of words 1/3 from Old French and 1/3 from Old German. Like 'melange' means 'blend' and I got a blender and on the side it said 'melangeur'. Or how "Kindergarten" is literally German for "Children Garden/orchard." Stuff like that.

But it's literally unrepayable, by design. In a debt based system like ours, every dollar created immediately has $1.01 of debt attached to it. The whole thing is unpayable.
It's a system of ownership. It's more powerful than the government.
