What would be the best system for a government?

Recommended Posts

Guest eyoismos

talk about working .... what files are allowed to be uploaded ... a couple of times i tried to upload images of jpg type - and nada

 

usually because some sites get real fancy and actually dont give give you a jpg file per say, but a whole lot of gobbly gook with some link or other to the actual image to display, so naturally ... the forum software doesnt support this method. but one can save the image. other sites that use the same forum software, allow jpg files to be uploaded, but Hellenism doesnt. either way, and as always ... there are pros and cons to allow or disallow this ... but the fact is, the posts allow for uploads ...just not jpg files

 

so the question is ...what does it allow?

I think it is good to denounce Western oppression of Chinese labour. You are talking about the poor migrants from rural areas to have to find work in urban areas. As I said, China still has something like 400 million of people leaving under $1 per day. The country is huge in terms of population and problems cannot be resolved in one day. On the other hand, there are a lot of rich people in China. I think the current leaders are trying to work on closing a bit the gap by providing more social assistance to the poor and aged people, minimum medicare, etc. But a lot still has to be done.

i think it is a massive mistake to blame oppression on the west. for ultimately the real oppressors are the leaders of the so called 3rd world countries who control the very same factories (of shame , often enough)... the so called industrialized west, if anything are the equivalent of vultures homing in on "opportunities of capital" ...not to mention , and lets be real..... the average joe out there in the west doesnt give a flying fart about how things are made... they all incensed with the latest and greatest at ever increasing demands for cheaper prices ... not to mention ... brand whores are the rave ... and damn the torpedos

 

or to put it differently ... for example  gucci bags (and i am only taking gucci as an example , for there are a myriad others) ...anybody seen the price tags? ...and the even bigger challenge...anybody seen the real costs of production? basically peanuts

 

and yet

 

 

Employees of luxury goods manufacturer Gucci were subject to "torture", being made to stand for 14 hours a day, pay for goods stolen by customers and being forced to ask for toilet breaks

 

if anybody blames the west for that ( at least exclusively as most imply)  .... then they are fools and morons

 

the fact that people buy bags , (and one can replace bags with anything and everything under the sun) at those ridiculous prices ...just to be brand whores ..... are even bigger, if not massive  %@#$@%@

 

i need not say more

I don't think you're allowed to "attach" any images. You need to upload your images somewhere and then link to them (using that "photo" icon above)

so it is not uploading, is it. what you propose is STILL based on hot links using the image thingimabobby

 

and yet the software allows for uploading

 

and yes ... other sites using the same exact software allow this feature for users

I don't entirely agree with you, Eyoismos. The manufacturing plants belong to the foreign multinationals, the workers are hired by them, and the profits are theirs. If they do not exploit the workers, then let them provide better working conditions and higher salaries. Put the blame where it should be. If they connive with the 3rd party leaders, they still bear part of the blame. Not caring does not mean they are not guilty. 

 

Jen - with $1 per day, you barely survive. You find that in China, in India, in Africa, lots of countries.

dont even kid yourself and try live with that lollipop

 

for example ...apple doesnt own foxconn

 

all apple cared for is the price of the finished product of this supplier, and blow-all else

 

the only reason apple "got involved" at one point, was because the shit hit the fan concerning ..well... we all know ...mostly ... , and all of a sudden to save face for public image purposes, ...."got involved" ...but before that? ...  nothing... nada ...zero ...big fat O

Foxconn is owned by a Taiwanese private company. I mean we can go on and on, but I think you are just looking at one aspect. Leading China is more than that, I think.
