The American libertarian view on privacy is so tiresome and so ridiculously irrelevant and I wish we would stop hearing about it so much.
Wir üben keinen Druck auf unsere Mieter aus. Kein Mieter wird bei uns verdrängt. Das würde gegen unsere Werte verstoßen.
A quote by Ralf Spann the boss of Akelius, a private housing corporation in Berlin, who are known to intentionally shut down hot water and other amenities to get people to vacate their apartments.
Akelius is one of the corporations that is on the chopping block to be expropriated.
Good on people to opt-out of imposed citizenship and engage on their own piece of statecraft.
My colleague Jiro Minier is featured in the Dahrendorf Foresight Project on European Security with a scenario that is both dystopian and scarily prescient. I read it as a call for more European collaboration and investment.
Piketty is back with a new book but his policy proposals are already there and should be implemented immediately and in full. The only reason we will have to fight for them to pass is because our governments do not work for the people.
I don’t really know why we have this debate, but the following is a thorough and definitive argument against technocracy by Glen Weyl: “Technocracy divorced from the need for public communication and accountability is thus a dangerous ideology that distracts technical experts from the valuable role they can play by tempting them to assume undue, independent power and influence.”
De PvdA is om en wil weer een basisbeurs voor studenten. De partij maakt een draai van 180 graden en trekt de handen af van het leenstelsel, dat het zelf nota bene heeft ingevoerd.
Het is ongelofelijk hoe nutteloos de PvdA is en blijft.
A thorough and humane treatment of alt-right memetic history and 8chan with its associated chans.
This lament on SF does not sound that far off from where Berlin is. The city is a lot bigger and less boring, but without measures, it could go the same way when it comes to property prices and hollowing out of public services.
Berlin is instituting a rent cap which honestly is the only way the city will remain liveable for the majority of its inhabitants.
