#TonisArmy will not let this be buried.

Everyone’s trying to sell you something, or take something off you, or get you to do something.
Everyone’s out for themselves.
No one can be trusted.
People are greedy.
People are lazy.
It’s a dog-eat-dog world.

That’s how I sometimes feel.

But it’s far from the truth, isn’t it?

These are just the lies we’re being told – or it’s people behaving that way because of the lies they’ve been told.

Our media is our enemy – and much of our schooling too.
We’re victims of cognitive imperialism – and the invading empire has established its outposts in the hinterlands of our minds.

The pandemic saw the best possible side of humans, people helped each other selflessly, at times putting their own life in danger
On the other hand, unfortunately we witnessed the worst possible behavior of the humans: black-market of Oxygen, extorting money for bed allocation, hoarding and selling medicines for 5x-10x price, profiteering in the time of pandemic.
Some employees of Kimia Pharma of Indonesia took the greed to the lowest level.
Passengers traveling domestically withing Indonesia were required to provide a -ve report for #COVID19 before boarding the flights.
Kimia Pharma sold the nasal swab test kits at Medan Airport.

"Plans for the elitist, money-grabbing league were unveiled Sunday night, triggering universal condemnation and galvanizing #fans against the 12 owners who proposed the tone-deaf breakaway."… #johnhenry #LIVERPOOL #Boston
1/ "The #SuperLeague collapsed under the weight of its own greed less than 48 hours after it was introduced, & Henry posted an apology video hours later in which he said, “The project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans....'"
2/ '...No one ever thought differently in #England. Over these 48 hours you were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you.'”

World needs a new Internet. Let’s get our shit together and finally build the Web3. Otherwise this world will be either in flames or under digital totalitarian control. Thread
Today's internet has massive integrity problems making the global human community vulnerable. We can’t verify who we communicate with or what the source of information is.
Our digital identities and information are managed by very few oligopolies, and our access to the services we need can be blocked by those very same oligopolies.

Protect the NHS, Don't use it.

Great isnt it

What's the bloody point of spending £380 Billion a year on the bastard if its not fit for Nation-wide use.

That's because its always been an overpriced LIE

Its just Employment creation

22.000 deaths a year from incompetence alone.
Any other industry and it would have been shut down retrained and reprimanded for a life time.

Staffordshire Hospital Was the standard model in every single county.

I know I see first hand 10 year's of sub-par NHS treatment.

The non caring system and its rulesets which
suit them down to a tee.
The failures of a duty of care all the way down to H+S and basic cleaning practises were disgrace level daily.

GP's failing to even look at a problem, being begged to check people over and over.

After watching @maddow this evening, I immediately canceled my trip to #NOLA next week to see my son @CallahanGoldBen at @Tulane. It is the first game of the the season for @GreenWaveMBB - the 🏀 team he plays for. I wanted to be there with him more than anything - as I (1/4)

an easey decision to make, albeit the right one. I will have to wait hug my son, take a photo with him in his uniform, or lay on the sofa with him watching hours and hours of #TheOffice. But that's okay. What's not okay is @Airbnb charging me $445 for canceling my trip (3/4)

What's there to say about greed?
There's something grubby about it.
There's something weak & pathetic about it.
It's almost servile; a kind of inner grovelling neediness.
You make yourself the saddle in which THINGS ride.

So why are so many people so greedy?

21 NOV 2019
Corporate greed:

United Utilities has the hard job of transporting water from the Lake District to Manchester.
In the last 6 months it made monopoly profits of £292m.
In the last 5 years the boss took home £12m.
Is that greedy enough for you?

22 NOV 2019
Corporate greed:
Severn Trent made £285m in the last 6 months. The boss was paid a salary of £2.45m.
The 9 bosses of the water companies have been paid £58m over the past 5 years.

Greedy enough for you?…

#Neoliberal deregulation & pure free-market #greed caused the 2008 financial crash, leading to a decade of #austerity which left Britain vulnerable to #COVID19.

Yet since 2009, Britain's richest 1,000 people INCREASED their wealth by nearly £500 BILLION.

British cities (home to 55% of the population) shouldered 74% of the #austerity cuts, even though care costs have increased year on year, & 99.9% of the UK population did not contribute to the financial crash IN ANY WAY.

Northern English cities were - OF COURSE - hardest hit.
Under the guise of #austerity, successive Governments introduced: crippling student debt; the collapse of affordable housing; the absence of secure jobs; outsourcing; MORE privatisation; unprecedented cuts to disability support & the introduction of the sadistic Universal Credit.

Do you believe #markets are #cyclical in nature?
Do you think #history #rhymes, if not #repeats?
Do you agree #greed and #fear are two main forces in the market?
If answer of above Q's is yes then following tweets will solidify ur view if its a no then they will change ur view.
Above is a monthly chart of #Sensex. It goes through an alternating #greedandfear cycle of 8 years. Sensex moves up in greed phase and consolidates in fear phase. It was up 469% in greed phase of 1992. was up only 20% from 1992 to 2000. From 2000 to 2008 it was up 271%.
In fear phase of 2008 to 2016 it was up only 48%. #Sensex has entered greed phase in 2016 and will stay there till 2024. So far its up more than 50%. But the story doesnt end there. The sectors which move up during these phases also go through a cycle.

*THREAD* (1/n) Often feminists don't agree to the fact that men in India suffer due to gender biased laws- in favor of women. Argument is, there are no statistics which suggest that Indian men suffer. So there is no need for gender neutral laws or a national commission for men.
(2/n)Well the statistics were always there but mostly ignored. I've collated some stats from NCRB data for Crime in India 2019. Despite these facts, people still play the 'women victim', 'abla nari' card. Let us look at what the statistics say -
(3/n) Analysis and approach - 1. For simplicity, the focus of this analysis will only be on crime against women. 2. Crimes like IPC 506 (Criminal intimidation), IPC 354C (Voyeurism), IPC 354D (Stalking), IPC 406 (Criminal breach of trust) have been left out in this analysis-

A thread about Scotland, solidarity against dictatorship, and the connection between Chilean fascism and the disaster of Brexit. 🧐✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱#NaePasaran #StopFascism #Brexit #ToriesOut #solidarity #history
I recently saw the extraordinary film “Nae Pasaran”, a powerful, deeply moving story of Scottish workers standing up to the fascist dictatorship in Chile in the 1970s… 🤓✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱 #NaePasaran #StopFascism #solidarity #Scotland #Chile @debasersfilms @naepasaran
One day in March 1974, an engineer at the Rolls Royce plant in East Kilbride, near Glasgow, noticed that there were Chilean aircraft engines in the production line, waiting to be refurbished. They were from Hawker Hunter jets owned by the Chilean Air Force. 😀✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳 #Scotland

A short thread on Tory rotter Cecil Parkinson, illustrating why the Conservative Party must be *destroyed* to save the country… (pic shows him with Mrs Fascister in 1983). 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #cad #ToriesLie #COVID19 #Parkinson #rotter #ToryShambles
Parkinson was a chartered accountant, and made a pile of money from establishing Parkinson-Hart Securities in 1961. He then entered Parliament in 1970; a normal career path for a Tory obsessed with money & power… 🙄 #ToriesOut #greed #gross 🇪🇺🇻🇳
As is extremely well-known, Parkinson had an affair with Sara Keays, his secretary in Parliament. He resigned his Cabinet post in October 1983, when news of her pregnancy became public. 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #hypocrites #liars #ToryShambles

The #KochNetwork, avatar of the tea party, rejects #shutdown protests via @politico AFP board member states “I think there's been a lesson...We saw what we wanted in the #teaparty. It didn’t work out like we’d like. And now we’re much more practical.”
Multiple conservative groups that have been longtime allies of the #KochNetwork network, such as FreedomWorks and #TeaParty Patriots, have led the #shutdown protests. Even the CEO of #ALEC has signed on.
Art Pope, owner of #NorthCarolina politicians, is a co-founder of AFP-NC with David Koch, and often called "Koch Jr". When asked about the #KochNetwork’s position on the current wave of #protests, Pope said “I’ll let them speak for themselves". #NCleg

UPDATE ON MARKETS: Much better month for SA market indeed. FTSE/JSE All Share ended month 3.3% positive in Rand-terms. This brings the full 2019-year return in Rand to 12.1%. SA Property bucked local equity market’s trend, losing 2.1%. Local Bonds improved 1.9% over same period.

Mid-Caps was again the star performer in December, increasing by 4.7%. Large Caps also outperformed the JSE with a monthly return of 3.7%, while Small-Caps only improved by 0.2% over the same period.
Page 3/10

What made performance even more extraordinary was that JSE outperformed MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI) significantly by 4.5% in USD during December & 0.6% against MSCI Emerging Market Index (EM). This however wasn’t enough to help outperform ACWI/EM over full 2019
