If my act harms you that's evil to you. It doesn't matter if I intentionally harmed you or even know that I did. The evil is the damage done. If anyone is damaged by the act of another, they are correct to call that damage evil. It is evil to them.

Not all evil can be avoided. But much that is dismissed as unintentional, collateral and done in ignorance should be taken into account. Tort law falls short of adequately addressing such evils, especially the systemic ones. Wholly owned politicians exacerbate the shortfalls by reinforcing them with legislature.

The policons and our rich masters care only about winning. The hoards they win threaten our survival with the surety of want and misery to come. Threats to my survival are evil to me. The rich and their hoards are evil to me.

''Bernie Sanders, the US senator who has led the debate on inequality, has waded into the fray. He met the UN monitor on Friday and sounded his own alarm about the future of the country.

''Sanders said that as the “wealthiest country in the history of the world” the US should be providing a model in how to treat all of its citizens with dignity. “Sadly that is not the case. We are moving into 2018 – we should not be living in a country with 41 million people living in poverty and so many more in extreme poverty, and nobody even talks about it.”

''Alston invited Paul Ryan to meet him but was told the Republican speaker of the House was too busy.''

Crapitalism's ''Externalities'' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Externality ] go much deeper than we realize. Greedy psychopaths like the Kochs, Robert Mercer and tRUMP - are stealing democracy and treasury!

There is more than enough work out there. Anybody who isn't working, doesn't want to work. No more handouts. I don't want to work when others aren't.

A huge amount of work needs to be done but there is insufficient amount and number of livelihoods given to the potential workers. Our various kinds of infrastructures have very much fallen into disrepair. A person was killed in Manhattan when a steam pipe on an avenue burst open (yeah, New York, N.Y. has many "ground dragons" ready to spew steam to cook you alive!). Those pipes are many decades old (in my youth of rich imagination and less knowledge of infrastructure, I thought Manhattan with its many vividly colored and shielded steam vents was sitting on top of an ACTIVE volcano!). The drinking water supply will be endangered should a many-decades-old water-feed main break (we couldn't shut off water in the 1970's to inspect and do any repair work necessary - we still haven't finished the remedy nearly four decades later). There is water sprinkling and dripping from the ceilings and walls of the subway with all the concomitant grimy slimy moldy growth and fallen-off tiles. There was a foot-long pothole on West 57th Street across from the Russian Tea Room and Carnegie Hall. Herr Sumpf may yet fall into this Russian trap.

A damned pothole on FDR Drive jolted my companion awake from her nap in a car. FDR Drive gives a rodeo-like ride, good for training urban cowboys learning the swagger and splitting butts. Both FDR Drive and West 57th Street are near where the rich live and congregate so I expected better conditions than this with the kleptocracy that we have. Kleptocracy kills. CON-gress is NOT Pro-gress.

Hello, this is supposedly the most important city in the most powerful and so-called "richest" (in fact, it's the most DEBT-RIDDEN [but the Idiots of the Swamp want to dig the hole even DEEPER with the tax gift-toss to the rich] by owing the most) country in the World. Tourists, unless you're turkeys voting to be cooked alive, stay safe, AVOID visiting the U.S. - Sumpf overflows by the greatest common divisor Warrant Buffoon, the Hand of Long Don Silver and Count of Orange.

Eat the rich, my ass! The Charmander-in-Schief may well fall into that Russian pothole. I admire A LOT Russia's poo-tin-ium chamber-pot service for the former dictators, scumbags, murderers, thieves, robbers, money launderers, tyrants and despots - Russia vacuumed them all up! Siberia captured my imagination and I was NOT alone because the Nazi German soldiers were fearless in many ways but they cowered in fear of "S. Iberian" riviera prisons. We cannot tolerate any more of this interference of governance by the rich. FBI! FBI! FBI!

Investigate J.P. Morgan Chase (which invented the shit-salad mechanism to bless shit into gold that eventually wreaked worldwide havoc) for nepotic kickbacks to the rich. Manhattan in the City of Jew (Jerk) is an island but it's one of the most connected places in the world. How? Do you see what I see?
