NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

All credit to user Flesh_Eating_turtle for finding the studies listed above.
Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

Study by Vicente Navarro (Professor of Health and Public Policy at Johns Hopkins University), which found that "contrary to dominant ideology, socialism and socialist forces have been, for the most part, better able to improve health conditions than have capitalism and capitalist forces." https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.2190/B2TP-3R5M-Q7UP-DUA2

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

Death count of Capitalism: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=842010

http://guerrillaontologies.com/2014/05/attempting-the-impossible-calculating-capitalisms-death-toll/
UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

2020.06.21 09:04 SavageTruths74 Free resources/books for socialists

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

Death count of Capitalism: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=842010

http://guerrillaontologies.com/2014/05/attempting-the-impossible-calculating-capitalisms-death-toll/
UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

2020.06.21 07:51 SavageTruths74 Updated free books/Resources for socialists and Marxist-Leninists

NOTE: if you have any good resources please link them in the comments so i can add them to my personal list ive been building.
im giving a decent list of free Marxist books/resources for everyone's use. i compiled this for the comrades who cannot afford to buy/order such books and for learning for everyone. This list should not be credited too much to me, a lot of the resources come from other comrades hard work and compiling and hours of researching, i found much here but most credit should go to everyone else who compiled/made/created these resources (some writing is even pasted from other comrades posts). i recommend the youtubers first.

Ask Somebody Who Lived Under Communism!"
Studies consistently find that people in most ex-socialist countries feel that life was better under socialism than it is under capitalism:
NOTE: the people asked were young and old (some i think) and if only people who lived under Stalin era (much better time before reform)were asked the number would be much higher. many were asked Many people still remember life before socialism, and remain appreciative for its achievements.
i want to comment on something i feel is important, as Marxist-Leninist we do not have to deny invasions at all, even genocides. they are horrible atrocities. but nothing compared to capitalism, we must learn from our mistakes. Though we should be careful of propaganda, there's a reason project mockingbird happened, and we must realize history is different from repeatable science. Excerpt again from turtle:
We should not respond to bourgeois propaganda by insisting (as some well-meaning yet mistaken comrades have done) that every single misdeed of Stalin is a lie; rather, we should place them into proper historical context, along with his various achievements. This is the correct way for Marxists to analyze the world: with a firm, well-grounded materialist critique, yielding no ground to hero worship, or to a fictitious "great man" theory of history. Recall what Fidel Castro said on the matter:
I believe Stalin made big mistakes but also showed great wisdom. In my opinion, blaming Stalin for everything that occurred in the Soviet Union would be historical simplism, because no man by himself could have created certain conditions. It would be the same as giving Stalin all the credit for what the USSR once was. That is impossible! I believe that the efforts of millions and millions of heroic people contributed to the USSR's development and to its relevant role in the world in favor of hundreds of millions of people. [...] I think there should be an impartial analysis of Stalin. Blaming him for everything that happened would be historical simplism.

Wealth Inequality in America
• 41 million Americans go hungry, including 13 million children and 5.4 millions seniors, while farmers destroy food to keep prices high.
• $32 trillion dollars are in offshore bank accounts that cannot be taxed for the benefit of the people.
• 9 of the richest people in the world have more wealth than 1.5 billion people.
• “The official poverty rate is 14.5%, meaning 45.3 million people in the US live in poverty, up by over 8 million since 2008. An additional 97.3 million (33%) of people living in the United States are low-income, defined as incomes below twice the federal poverty line, or $47,700 for a family of four. Taken together, this means that 48% of the US population is poor or low income, 1 in every 2 people.
• More than 1 in 5 children in America (21.8%) are living under the official poverty line. Half of all children will be on food stamps before they turn 20, including 9 out of 10 African American children.
• Only 48% of Americans can handle a $400 emergency.”
• For every 22 empty homes, there is 1 homeless person.
• The United Nations has announced that the US has the worst poverty and wealth gap in the developed world.

UNICEF, RESULTS, and Bread for the World estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. So in 10 years, capitalism kills more children under the age of 5 than socialism did in 150 years.

We have enough food to feed 10 billion people. Even assuming 20% of it is lost, we could still feed the entire population of the world. But we don't, because the logistics of it is expensive and inefficient. Because developing poor countries is too expensive, and sending them food "disrupts the local markets".
If these people didn't need to operate under capitalism to survive, sending them food wouldn't be an issue. If we prioritized things properly, we could develop self-sustainable agriculture projects everywhere in the world.
But we don't. Because of capitalism.
Or something closer to us in the west:
In the US alone, 20,000 to 40,000 deaths every year because of lack of health insurance. On average, that's 300,000 over the last decade.
Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. but we have more than enough food to feed EVERYONE. What happen to the capitalist market being the best way to allocate resources?
Every year 3,575,000 people die from water related diseases. This is equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every hour. Most of these people are children (2.2 million). but we have more than enough clean water, and can produce enough for everyone. again, where is this perfect market allocation?
2 million people die from VACCINE PREVENTABLE DISEASE EVERY YEAR! again i ask, where is this moral perfect market allocation?

2019.07.04 22:09 DjNinja22 NUA NEWS #14 - NEW ADMINISTRATION OF SOLARBURST

NUA NEWS #14 - NEW ADMINISTRATION OF SOLARBURST
HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT I'M SO SORRY FOR THE LACK OF NEWS IT WAS A MISTAKE! NOW THERE'S SO MUCH FUCKING NEWS I HAVE TO COVER AND NOW I'M FUCKED! ANYHOW... THIS IS DJNINJA22 BACK AGAIN TO REPORT THE NEWS!!!

CREIXIZZ RESIGNS AS GOVERNOR!

Our 4th Governor of Solarburst, Creixizz, has resigned. I know this feels like a long time ago now but I must cover this. Creixizz had resigned for a number of reasons:
- Did not know how to reform Solarburst
- Was unpopular (people did not want the exact administration as Xplazor's)
- Knew his defeat against Xsoumii was inevitable
This is sad. Creixizz is the father of Solarburst because Solarburst used to be his news platform. As a fellow new reporter, I have much respects for him. The best part was, he was rarely biased. Solarburst was one of the best news sources the NUA had and its name had become the name of the fourth district of the NUA. The father of Solarburst has resigned as Governor. Farewell.

Creixizz: "I am very glad to have served my time as Governor. Now, I must go. I have important things I must pursue. Thank you all for giving me the brilliant moments I had. Thank you to the ninzard community."

XSOUMII BECOMES GOVERNOR OF SOLARBURST

What happened after Creixizz resigned?
WELL... SHIT
Xsoumii and his Gunforce party dominated Solarburst politics and they absolutely crushed the other parties in the election. Surprisingly, 69% (Lmao) was a number that was lower than expected. People had expected a win close to the low eighties or high seventies. Xsoumii made a statement about this:
"Of course the Ground had intervened in this shit. Of course the Ground interrupts things and attempts to ruin glory. This is why we must destroy the Ground. I'm done with them cheating in our elections in the Underground. This is the doing of the most incompetent Governor in the NUA, Logan. We must extinguish the Ground!"
Xsoumii was ridiculed by Vice President Pluzaq:
"Now the madman is creating false stories of the Ground cheating the election just so he gets an excuse for his low votes and a reason to remove the Ground. I don't expect much of him. He'll be impeached quickly."

The Shit Xsoumii Has Done As Governor
Xsoumii, just like Deliquent had began to invade small communities and forced them to join the NUA with aggressive advertisement and false propaganda. In doing so, he gathered an extra 100 members to join Solarburst.
But what was bad? First of, he treated the people of Solarburst as his own slaves. Lot's of freedom was taken away such as access to the Ground. He had treated them so badly that his own supporters began to despise him.
In the end, in his greedy attempt for power, Tank Shop and the AIPN assembled a giant fist attack on Solarburst. Solarburst stood no chance. They were fucked. Before they could capture the members of Solarburst, D1SF and Astrocore came to defense, putting Xsoumii in embarrassment.
During this time, the investigation of Tank Shop's suspicious attacks had all led to Xsoumii. Xsoumii and his supporters had launched attacks on Nightwork and Astrocore in an attempt to prove that these had been the weak districts. It seems to Xsoumii that all the districts that do not support him are "weak districts". Now this had become a scandal and was enough of a reason for him to be impeached.
The Ninzard Council impeached Xsoumii in a 100% vote.

Xsoumii's Very Short Administration
Governor: Xsoumii
Co-Governor: Xzami

Head Supervisor: Deliquent
Co-Head Supervisor: Claxagon

Head of Solar-Offensive: Pyrax
Head of Solar-Defense: Oqlaz

Elite Base Supervisor: NNZ
Sub-Elite Base Supervisor: Litzor

North Base Supervisor: RNZ
East Base Supervisor: Uzineo
South Base Supervisor: TheMadMagician
West Base Supervisor: Azisky

Feeder Base Was Removed

This was an administration filled with incompetent and corrupt people. No wonder Solarburst was gone in moments.

GHOSTEXE BECOMES 6TH GOVERNOR

The Council was desperate to pick a new Governor for Solarburst and they chose GhostExe and his campaigning partner, Dvnxkwenz. They formed their own administration once again:

Governor: GhostExe
Co-Governor: Dvnxkwenz
Head Supervisor: Ice Sage

Elite Base Supervisor: Litzor

North Base Supervisor: Not Chosen
East Base Supervisor: Not Chosen
South Base Supervisor: TheMadMagician
West Base Supervisor: Azisky

This was a very silly administration. An attempt to recreate Xplazor's old administration but a complete failure.

XENOS BECOMES 7TH GOVERNOR

NOW THE ADMINISTRATION OF GHOSTEXE LASTED NEARLY A DAY AND WAS FUCKING OVERTHROWN BY XENOS!
Here's a quick overview of Xenos...
Xenos used to be the Vice President of the Quantum Gears and was a good friend of the notorious Marvelon. For some serious reasons, Xenos did not like what Marvelon had been doing. He told Marvelon this opposition and was demoted from Vice President. In revenge, he launched a coup invasion of QGF and left in doing so. He retreated to the NUA and was kept hidden by the Capital Administration. He remained in Solarburst for a few weeks.
However, he was finished with the shit that was happening with Solarburst and decided to expose himself for the sake of Solarburst. He knocked out GhostExe's administration and formed his own. He rushed in his new people to run the bases.
This was his administration:

Governor: Xenos
Co-Governor: Xulas
Head Supervisor: Xeraz

Elite Base Supervisor: Ice Sage

North Base Supervisor: Xeyal
East Base Supervisor: Xelogate
South Base Supervisor: Xolar
West Base Supervisor: Azisky (Remains the same)

THIS ADMINISTRATION PROVES TO BE THE BEST SO FAR! SO MANY REASONS!
- They had given liberty to the citizens of Solarburst.
- They had increased the power of Solarburst more than any other administration.
- All Supervisors were very competent.

Here is a quote from the new 7th Governor of Solarburst, Xenos:
"The administrators had spotted the cause of what was ripping Solarburst apart this whole time. It had been the conflicts and divisions of our own community. Solarburst has been so divided in the recent days that it had weakened the district greatly. While they say this, no one has found the cause of this division. The sad truth had been that the cause was exposed this whole time. Why do we need these categories and separations called "pro-Ground, pro-Underground", and whatsoever? Why do we need them? All I've seen them do is split the district more and more to the point where the district is no longer one whole. Why do we need them? You could say that these are the representation of the people's views but the problem with that is that these views are blatantly incorrect. There is only on right view, that is the "moderate", center view. This is the view that is logical and has proven to be successful. Every other view has ended in destruction and ruins. These views are not opinions but rather they are views of incorrect thinking or correct thinking. They are much different from political views. Now that we have united us once again, we will knock the shit out of QGF."

SOLARBURST HAS FINALLY FOUND THE ADMINISTRATION THEY NEEDED AND HOLY SHIT I JUST FUCKING WENT THROUGH ALL THE SOLARBURST NEWS!
This was only about Solarburst politics but I don't care because that was the only thing that was news. Oh shit right, there's that Minecraft thing in D3 but fuck it, I've wrote way too much.

2019.03.13 21:25 ANCAgrassroots Rising Leaders

Rising Leaders
Special thank you to Ambassador Varuzhan Nersesyan and his team for hosting a wonderful Embassy of Armenia to the United States reception on the final evening of ANCA Rising Leaders: Career Empowerment Civic Education.
https://preview.redd.it/4volykl14yl21.jpg?width=1783&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d61444b8107983dfa776517cf6329cf50841b180
The Ambassador's words of wisdom, encouragement, and solidarity were a great send-off for the young Armenians who traveled to Washington, DC to explore careers in public policy - from government and politics to media and advocacy.
Inspiring remarks were shared by Berdj Karapetian, the Executive Chairman of the Armenian Museum of America (and past ANCA Executive Director here in DC), Irma N. Kassabian, the Chairwoman of the Armenian Relief Society Washington Satenig Chapter (which provided wonderful food and desserts), and also Dean Shahinian, on behalf of the Ararat Foundation's Shahinian Educational Fund, which helped make the entire Rising Leaders program possible. Prof. Frank V. Zerunyan, an accomplished educator, lawyer, elected official, and mentor, was recognized for his many contributions to our community and cause.
Keynote remarks were offered by Charlie Mahtesian, the Senior Politics Editor of POLITICO, who shared his own experiences and encouraged the assembled young participants to explore rewarding careers in journalism.
Over the course of the three day seminar, the ANCA Hovig Apo Saghdejian Capital Gateway Program, lead by Tereza Yerimyan, provided Rising Leaders participants with real-world capacity-building - from resume and cover-letter writing to interviewing and and networking skills, as well as "deep-dive" panel discussions with experienced professionals in diplomacy, the legislative process, international development, law, advocacy, campaigns, and consulting. Participants engaged with the ANCA Chairman and staff (from the ANCA Eastern and Western regions) and learned about the ANCA's current federal advocacy agenda and the most effective strategies for communicating Armenian American priorities. On the final day of the program, they put their skills to work during a full day of Congressional meetings and a Capitol Hill working lunch with Armenian American legislative staff.
The ANCA's Rising Leaders partners were AYF Eastern Region USA, Armenian Youth Federation (West), and the Georgetown University Armenian Students Association.

2018.10.15 13:15 kamerstukken-bot Antwoord op vragen van het lid Ellemeet over het bericht ‘8% van de Nederlandse vrouwen koopt geen anticonceptie uit geldgebrek’

Hierbij zend ik u de antwoorden op de vragen van het Kamerlid De Jonge van Ellemeet (GL) over het bericht ‘8% van de Nederlandse vrouwen koopt geen anticonceptie uit geldgebrek’ (2018Z16898).   Hoogachtend,   de minister van Volksgezondheid,   Welzijn en Sport,   Hugo de Jonge   Antwoorden op Kamervragen van het Kamerlid De Jonge van Ellemeet (GL) over het bericht ‘8% van de Nederlandse vrouwen koopt geen anticonceptie uit geldgebrek’ .   (2018Z16898)   1   Bent u bekend met het artikel ‘8% van de Nederlandse vrouwen koopt geen anticonceptie uit geldgebrek’? 1)     1   Ja.   2   Wat is uw reactie op de bevindingen van Dokters van de Wereld dat 8% van de Nederlandse vrouwen in de afgelopen tien jaar wel eens geen anticonceptie heeft gekocht uit geldgebrek? Deelt u de mening dat dit een zorgelijke constatering is?     2   Uit het onderzoek blijkt dat met name kwetsbare vrouwen met beperkte financiële middelen soms afzien van de aanschaf van anticonceptie. Dat is uiteraard geen wenselijke ontwikkeling. Op 11 september jl. hebben zowel de staatssecretaris als ik u geïnformeerd over respectievelijk het traject onbedoelde (tiener) zwangerschappen en het programma Kansrijke start. Ongeplande en ongewenste zwangerschappen zijn vooral een probleem bij kwetsbare vrouwen (zoals dak- en thuisloos, illegaal, verstandelijk beperkt, verslaafd, sociaal geïsoleerd, zeer jong, of psychisch belast). Dit heeft met verschillende redenen te maken, die soms inderdaad ook financieel van aard zijn. Ongeplande en ongewenste zwangerschappen leiden vaak tot gecompliceerde zwangerschappen, prenatale beschadiging, postnataal toezicht of tenslotte uithuisplaatsing. Daarom is het belangrijk dit zoveel mogelijk te voorkomen.   Het programma Nu Niet Zwanger (NNZ) is een succesvol lokaal programma dat in Tilburg ontwikkeld is. NNZ voorkomt kwetsbaar ouderschap bij deze specifieke doelgroep via een kortdurende, intensieve begeleiding op maat rond het bespreken van seksualiteit, de kinderwens, de situatie van de vrouw (en partner) en door passend (langdurig) anticonceptiegebruik te realiseren. NNZ wordt de komende twee jaar landsdekkend uitgevoerd om deze vrouwen te helpen ervoor te kiezen op dit moment, in deze situatie, niet zwanger te worden. Binnen het programma wordt aan gemeenten gevraagd de anticonceptie zonodig te financieren voor deze kwetsbare groepen, waardoor vrouwen niet geconfronteerd worden met de kosten van anticonceptie. Vanuit het Rijk wordt GGD GHOR NL gefinancierd om NNZ landsdekkend uit te voeren de komende twee jaar. Ik ben van mening dat met het landsdekkende programma Nu Niet Zwanger een grote groep kwetsbare vrouwen wordt bereikt.   3   Bent u bereid om extra maatregelen te treffen om de nog bestaande (financiële) drempels in de toegankelijkheid van anticonceptie weg te nemen? Zo ja, welke maatregelen? Zo nee, waarom niet?     3   Zie mijn antwoord op vraag 2.   De anticonceptiepil wordt uit het basispakket van de Zvw vergoed voor meisjes en vrouwen tot 21 jaar. Belangrijke overweging daarvoor was het voorkomen van tienerzwangerschappen. Bij het voorkomen van zwangerschap gaat het niet om zorg ter behandeling van een aandoening; er is geen sprake van een medische indicatie. Om die reden is anticonceptie geen vorm van zorg waarvoor de basisverzekering is bedoeld.   4   Deelt u de zorgen dat abortus voor ongedocumenteerde vrouwen in Nederland niet financieel toegankelijk is? Zo ja, wat wilt u hieraan doen? Zo nee, waarom niet?     5   Bent u bereid een regeling op te stellen voor ongedocumenteerde vrouwen die onvoldoende financiële middelen hebben om een abortusbehandeling te bekostigen? Zo ja, wat zou u in deze regeling willen opnemen? Zo nee, waarom niet?   Antwoord 4 en 5   De financiering van de abortuszorg in Nederland is voor Wlz-verzekerden geregeld op grond van de Kaderwet VWS-subsidies, en wel in de Subsidieregeling abortusklinieken. Behandelingen in ziekenhuizen worden vergoed op grond van de Zorgverzekeringswet als medisch specialistische zorg. Hiervoor is een medische indicatie nodig. Niet-Wlz-verzekerden, zoals ongedocumenteerde vrouwen, betalen de abortuszorg zelf rechtstreeks aan de abortuskliniek. Voor deze groep is er geen financieringstroom.   Voor zorg geleverd aan deze niet Wlz-verzekerden heeft de NZa tarieven vastgesteld, die vergelijkbaar zijn met de tarieven in de Subsidieregeling abortusklinieken. Per 1 januari 2016 is de tariefsoort van de NZa gewijzigd van een vast tarief naar een maximumtarief. Hierover heb ik uw Kamer in het verslag van een schriftelijk overleg over de voorhangbrief wijziging tariefsoort abortushulpverlening aan niet-WLZ-gerechtigden geïnformeerd.   Klinieken hebben de afgelopen jaren meer verantwoordelijkheid gekregen voor hun eigen financiën. Met de invoering van een maximumtarief voor abortuszorg aan niet-Wlz-verzekerden werd beoogd de abortusklinieken meer flexibiliteit te geven in de tarieven die ze aan niet-Wlz-verzekerden vragen. Klinieken hebben hiermee de mogelijkheid om op flexibele wijze een lager tarief toe te kunnen passen, bijvoorbeeld wanneer de financiële draagkracht van een vrouw erg laag is en zij niet in staat is het (volledige) bedrag te betalen.   De klinieken hebben ook de mogelijkheid financiële buffers op te bouwen, onder andere vanuit de gesubsidieerde abortuszorg, bijvoorbeeld ter herinvestering in de zorg of om financiële tegenvallers op te vangen. Hierbij kan gedacht worden aan de bekostiging van behandelingen aan vrouwen die dit zelf niet kunnen opbrengen of slechts een deel van het maximumtarief zelf kunnen betalen.   1) https://doktersvandewereld.org/persbericht-8-van-de-nederlandse-vrouwen-koopt-geen-anticonceptie-uit-geldgebrek/

2018.10.07 00:59 jet_user Decred Journal – September 2018

Note: you can read this on GitHub (link), Medium (link) or old Reddit (link).

Development

Final version 1.3.0 of the core software was released bringing all the enhancements reported last month to the rest of the community. The groundwork for SPV (simplified payment verification) is complete, another reduction of fees is being deployed, and performance stepped up once again with a 50% reduction in startup time, 20% increased sync speed and more than 3x faster peer delivery of block headers (a key update for SPV). Decrediton's integrations of SPV and Politeia are open for testing by experienced users. Read the full release notes and get the downloads on GitHub. As always, don't forget to verify signatures.
dcrd: completed several steps towards multipeer downloads, improved introduction to the software in the main README, continued porting cleanups and refactoring from upstream btcd.
Currently in review are initial release of smart fee estimator and a change to UTXO set semantics. The latter is a large and important change that provides simpler handling, and resolves various issues with the previous approach. A lot of testing and careful review is needed so help is welcome.
Educational series for new Decred developers by @matheusd added two episodes: 02 Simnet Setup shows how to automate simnet management with tmux and 03 Miner Reward Invalidation explains block validity rules.
Finally, a pull request template with a list of checks was added to help guide the contributors to dcrd.
dcrwallet: bugfixes and RPC improvements to support desktop and mobile wallets.
Developers are welcome to comment on this idea to derive stakepool keys from the HD wallet seed. This would eliminate the need to backup and restore redeem scripts, thus greatly improving wallet UX. (missed in July issue)
Decrediton: bugfixes, refactoring to make the sync process more robust, new loading animations, design polishing.
Politeia: multiple improvements to the CLI client (security conscious users with more funds at risk might prefer CLI) and security hardening. A feature to deprecate or timeout proposals was identified as necessary for initial release and the work started. A privacy enhancement to not leak metadata of ticket holders was merged.
Android: update from @collins: "Second test release for dcrandroid is out. Major bugs have been fixed since last test. Latest code from SPV sync has been integrated. Once again, bug reports are welcome and issues can be opened on GitHub". Ask in #dev room for the APK to join testing.
A new security page was added that allows one to validate addresses and to sign/verify messages, similar to Decrediton's Security Center. Work on translations is beginning.
Overall the app is quite stable and accepting more testers. Next milestone is getting the test app on the app store.
iOS: the app started accepting testers last week. @macsleven: "the test version of Decred Wallet for iOS is available, we have a link for installing the app but the builds currently require your UDID. Contact either @macsleven or @raedah with your UDID if you would like to help test.".
Nearest goal is to make the app crash free.
Both mobile apps received new design themes.
dcrdata: v3.0 was released for mainnet! Highlights: charts, "merged debits" view, agendas page, Insight API support, side chain tracking, Go 1.11 support with module builds, numerous backend improvements. Full release notes here. This release featured 9 contributors and development lead @chappjc noted: "This collaboration with @raedahgroup on our own block explorer and web API for @decredproject has been super productive.".
Up next is supporting dynamic page widths site wide and deploying new visual blocks home page.
Trezor: proof of concept implementation for Trezor Model T firmware is in the works (previous work was for Model One).
Ticket splitting: updated to use Go modules and added simnet support, several fixes.
docs: beginner's guide overhaul, multiple fixes and cleanups.
decred.org: added 3rd party wallets, removed inactive PoW pools and removed web wallet.
@Richard-Red is building a curated list of Decred-related GitHub repositories.
Welcome to new people contributing for the first time: @klebe, @s_ben, @victorguedes, and PrimeDominus!
Dev activity stats for September: 219 active PRs, 197 commits, 28.7k added and 18.8k deleted lines spread across 6 repositories. Contributions came from 4-10 developers per repository. (chart)

Network

Hashrate: started and ended the month around 75 PH/s, hitting a low of 60.5 and a new high of 110 PH/s. BeePool is again the leader with their share varying between 23-54%, followed by F2Pool 13-30%, Coinmine 4-6% and Luxor 3-5%. As in previous months, there were multiple spikes of unidentified hashrate.
Staking: 30-day average ticket price is 98 DCR (+2.4). The price varied between 95.7 and 101.9 DCR. Locked DCR amount was 3.86-3.96 million DCR, or 45.7-46.5% of the supply.
Nodes: there are 201 public listening nodes and 325 normal nodes per dcred.eu. Version distribution: 5% are v1.4.0(pre) dev builds (+3%), 30% on v1.3.0 (+25%), 42% on v1.2.0 (-20%), 15% on v1.1.2 (-7%), 6% on v1.1.0. More than 76% of nodes run v1.2.0 and higher and therefore support client filters. Data as of Oct 1.

ASICs

Obelisk posted two updates on their mailing list. 70% of Batch 1 units are shipped, an extensive user guide is available, Obelisk Scanner application was released that allows one to automatically update firmware. First firmware update was released and bumped SC1 hashrate by 10-20%, added new pools and fixed multiple bugs. Next update will focus on DCR1. It is worth a special mention that the firmware source code is now open! Let us hope more manufacturers will follow this example.
A few details about Whatsminer surfaced this month. The manufacturer is MicroBT, also known as Bitwei and commonly misspelled as Bitewei. Pangolinminer is a reseller, and the model name is Whatsminer D1.
Bitmain has finally entered Decred ASIC space with their Antminer DR3. Hash rate is 7.8 TH/s while pulling 1410 W, at the price of $673. These specs mean it has the best GH/W and GH/USD of currently sold miners until the Whatsminer or others come out, although its GH/USD of 11.6 already competes with Whatsminer's 10.5. Discussed on Reddit and bitcointalk, unboxing video here.

Integrations

Meet our 17th voting service provider: decredvoting.com. It is operated by @david, has 2% fee and supports ticket splitting. Reddit thread is here.
For a historical note, the first VSP to support ticket splitting was decredbrasil.com:
@matheusd started tests on testnet several months ago. I contacted him so we could integrate with the pool in June this year. We set up the machine in July and bought the first split ticket on mainnet, using the decredbrasil pool, on July 19. It was voted on July 30. After this first vote on mainnet, we opened the tests to selected users (with more technical background) on the pool. In August we opened the tests to everyone, and would call people who want to join to the #ticket_splitting channel, or to our own Slack (in Portuguese, so mostly Brazilian users). We have 28 split tickets already voted, and 16 are live. So little more than 40 split tickets total were bought on decredbrasil pool. (@girino in #pos-voting)
KuCoin exchange listed DCBTC and DCETH pairs. To celebrate their anniversary they had a 99% trading fees discount on DCR pairs for 2 weeks.
Three more wallets integrated Decred in September:
ChangeNow announced Decred addition to their Android app that allows accountless swaps between 150+ assets.
Coinbase launched informational asset pages for top 50 coins by market cap, including Decred. First the pages started showing in the Coinbase app for a small group of testers, and later the web price dashboard went live.

Adoption

The birth of a Brazilian girl was registered on the Decred blockchain using OriginalMy, a blockchain proof of authenticity services provider. Read the full story in Portuguese and in English.

Marketing

Advertising report for September is ready. Next month the graphics for all the ads will be changing.
Marketing might seem quiet right now, but a ton is actually going on behind the scenes to put the right foundation in place for the future. Discovery data are being analyzed to generate a positioning strategy, as well as a messaging hierarchy that can guide how to talk about Decred. This will all be agreed upon via consensus of the community in the work channels, and materials will be distributed.
Next, work is being done to identify the right PR partner to help with media relations, media training, and coordination at events. While all of this is coming up to speed, we believe the website needs a refresher reflecting the soon to be agreed upon messaging, plus a more intuitive architecture to make it easier to navigate. (@Dustorf)

Events

Attended:
Upcoming:
We'll begin shortly reviewing conferences and events planned for the first half of 2019. Highlights are sure to include The North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami (Jan 16-18) and Consensus in NYC (May 14-16). If you have suggestions of events or conferences Decred should attend, please share them in #event_planning. In 2019, we would like to expand our presence in Europe, Asia, and South America, and we're looking for community members to help identify and staff those events. (@Dustorf)

#support is not often mentioned, but it must be noted that every day on this channel people get high quality support. (@bee: To my surprise, even those poor souls running Windows 10. My greatest respect to the support team!)

Markets

In September DCR was trading in the range of USD 34-45 / BTC 0.0054-0.0063. On Sep 6, DCR revisited the bottom of USD 34 / BTC 0.0054 when BTC quickly dropped from USD 7,300 to 6,400. On Sep 14, a small price rise coincided with both the start of KuCoin trading and hashrate spike to 104 PH/s. Looking at coinmarketcap charts, the trading volume is a bit lower than in July and August.
As of Oct 4, Decred is #18 by the number of daily transactions with 3,200 tx, and #9 by the USD value of daily issuance with $230k. (source: onchainfx)
Interesting observation by @ImacallyouJawdy: while we sit at 2018 price lows the amount locked in tickets is testing 2018 high.

The New York State Office of the Attorney General posted a study of 13 exchanges that contains many insights.
A critical vulnerability was discovered and fixed in Bitcoin Core. Few days later a full disclosure was posted revealing the severity of the bug. In a bitcointalk thread btcd was called 'amateur' despite not being vulnerable, and some Core developers voiced their concerns about multiple implementations. The Bitcoin Unlimited developer who found the bug shared his perspective in a blog post. Decred's vision so far is that more full node implementations is a strength, just like for any Internet protocol.

Development

dcrd: Version 1.3.0 RC1 (Release Candidate 1) is out! The main features of this release are significant performance improvements, including some that benefit SPV clients. Full release notes and downloads are on GitHub.
The default minimum transaction fee rate was reduced from 0.001 to 0.0001 DCkB. Do not try to send such small fee transactions just yet, until the majority of the network upgrades.
Release process was changed to use release branches and bump version on the master branch at the beginning of a release cycle. Discussed in this chat.
The codebase is ready for the new Go 1.11 version. Migration to vgo module system is complete and the 1.4.0 release will be built using modules. The list of versioned modules and a hierarchy diagram are available here.
The testnet was reset and bumped to version 3.
Comments are welcome for the proposal to implement smart fee estimation, which is important for Lightning Network.
@matheusd recorded a code review video for new Decred developers that explains how tickets are selected for voting.
dcrwallet: Version 1.3.0 RC1 features new SPV sync mode, new ticket buyer, new APIs for Decrediton and a host of bug fixes. On the dev side, dcrwallet also migrated to the new module system.
Decrediton: Version 1.3.0 RC1 adds the new SPV sync mode that syncs roughly 5x faster. The feature is off by default while it receives more testing from experienced users. Other notable changes include a design polish and experimental Politeia integration.
Politeia: Proposal editing is being developed and has a short demo. This will allow proposal owners to edit their proposal in response to community feedback before voting begins. The challenges associated with this feature relate to updating censorship tokens and maintaining a clear history of which version comments were made on. @fernandoabolafio produced this architecture diagram which may be of interest to developers.
@degeri joined to perform security testing of Politeia and found several issues.
dcrdata: mainnet explorer upgraded to v2.1 with several new features. For users: credit/debit tx filter on address page, showing miner fees on coinbase transaction page, estimate yearly ticket rewards on main page, cool new hamburger menu and keyboard navigation. For developers: new chain parameters page, experimental Insight API support, endpoints for coin supply and block rewards, testnet3 support.

Comm systems news:
After another debate about chat systems more people began testing and using Matrix, leading to some gardening on that platform:
Highlights:
Reddit: substantive discussion about Decred cons; ecosystem fund; a thread about voter engagement, Politeia UX and trolling; idea of a social media system for Decred by @michae2xl; how profitable is the Obelisk DCR1.
Chats: cross-chain trading via LN; plans for contractor management system, lower-level decision making and contractor privacy vs transparency for stakeholders; measuring dev activity; what if the network stalls, multiple implementations of Decred for more resilience, long term vision behind those extensive tests and accurate comments in the codebase; ideas for process for policy documents, hosting them in Pi and approving with ticket voting; about SPV wallet disk size, how compact filters work; odds of a wallet fetching a wrong block in SPV; new module system in Go; security of allowing Android app backups; why PoW algo change proposal must be specified in great detail; thoughts about NIPoPoWs and SPV; prerequisites for shipping SPV by default (continued); Decred vs Dash treasury and marketing expenses, spending other people's money; why Decred should not invade a country, DAO and nation states, entangling with nation state is poor resource allocation; how winning tickets are determined and attack vectors; Politeia proposal moderation, contractor clearance, the scale of proposals and decision delegation, initial Politeia vote to approve Politeia itself; chat systems, Matrix/Slack/Discord/RocketChat/Keybase (continued); overview of Korean exchanges; no breaking changes in vgo; why project fund burn rate must keep low; asymptotic behavior of Decred and other ccs, tail emission; count of full nodes and incentives to run them; Politeia proposal translations and multilingual environment.
An unusual event was the chat about double negatives and other oddities in languages in #trading.

Markets

DCR started the month at USD 56 / BTC 0.0073 and had a two week decline. On Aug 14 the whole market took a huge drop and briefly went below USD 200 billion. Bitcoin went below USD 6,000 and top 100 cryptos lost 5-30%. The lowest point coincided with Bitcoin dominance peak at 54.5%. On that day Decred dived -17% and reached the bottom of USD 32 / BTC 0.00537. Since then it went sideways in the USD 35-45 / BTC 0.0054-0.0064 range. Around Aug 24, Huobi showed DCR trading volume above USD 5M and this coincided with a minor recovery.
@ImacallyouJawdy posted some creative analysis based on ticket data.

2018.06.19 18:06 justsomerandomyguy Darling Gurren Doki Evangelion 5.0 [Mandatory Beach Episode Is Mandatory]

Narrator POV
Due to the recent successes of the Doki pilots, the commander has authorized an R&R day for the pilots and the members of the staff to celebrate their hard work. We find everyone resting and relaxing on one of the beaches near the city.
Willie and Ossi are playing frisbee with Sayori and Natsuki.
Monika is helping Litandus as he attempts to write more tasteful lewderature but keeps getting distracted.
Bool is currently napping on the thighs of Yuri while she reads one of her books.
TC and her girlfriend Sara are busy writing their own stories (something about cupcakes and cinnamon swirls).
Stuart is busy arguing with Jack and Leo over the proper way to deal with non-compliant posts people keep leaving around the break room area back at the base. “This doesn’t even have anything to do with what we’re talking about!” Stuart bellows at Jack and Leo who seem to be rather enjoying themselves at his expense. Even Commander Booker from Outpost Actone is present for the festivities today.
Willie throws the frisbee back to Sayori and Natsuki. The wind catches the frisbee and causes it to drift closer to the water. Natsuki races after it but trips over one of the waves and falls in. The frisbee gently lands on the top of her head much to the amusement of Sayori.
S: “Hehehe, you make even tripping look cute Natsuki.”
N: “S-Shut up!”
Ossi and Willie both walk up to check on Natsuki.
W: “You ok cupcake?”
N: “Yeah, yeah. I’m fine. Hey, do you guys find all of this a bit weird?”
O: “What are you talking about?”
N: “I mean that we’re all at the beach today. Isn’t that a bit...you know...cliche?”
W: “Well would you rather us be fighting Bullis?”
N: “No no that’s not what I mean. I mean given the way the first few episodes went, you’d assume we lived in the middle of the desert but yet we’re now at the beach.”
Ossi shrugs his shoulders.
O: “Meh, conveniently placed beach is convenient.”
Willie’s stomach begins to growl. His slightly embarrassed look makes Natsuki chuckle.
S: “It would seem someone’s hungry.”
N: “I’m getting hungry too.”
O: “Well we gotta wait on Clips. He was the one in charge of the food today and was rather insistent that he be the one to man the grill.”
W: “Well I hope he gets here soon.”
A loud whirrring noise can be heard approaching the group. Everyone looks skyward and sees an attack helicopter approaching them. As it hovers overhead, everyone notices the side door open and sees...Clips? With a cocky smile, he throws himself from the perfectly good chopper and superhero lands next to the grill.
C: “Hey everyone. Sorry I’m late. Was busy working on one of my pet projects [Seed Milk 2 for those you wondering].”
As Clips turns to the grill to begin cooking, a bewildered Natsuki leans over to Ossi.
N: “Did he just superhero land out of a perfectly good helicopter?”
O: “Yep.”
N: “And how exactly did he do that without turning into a comical splat mark on the beach?”
O: “Clips has strong ankles and some pretty serious plot armor.”
W: “Well I for one and happy to see our strong ankled overlord finally show up.”
O: “Well that hopefully will be the weirdest thing we have to deal with today.”
You’d think that wouldn’t you but this is a DGDE episode after all
Almost as if one cue, the group begins to hear another loud noise but this time it sounds like music coming from...the ocean? Everyone watches as...well...what can only be described as a pirate ship makes it way for the beach. All eyes turn to it as its tunes fill the air. Even from far away, they can make out someone standing on the deck of the ship striking a pose as the ships moves closer.
The ship is about a tenth of a mile out when it drops anchor and halts. By this time, Litandus, Monika, Bool and Yuri have joined the others at the water’s edge.
L: “Anyone care to explain why the One Piece ship just showed up?”
B: “Hmmm...isn’t that bit far away? Are they planning on swimming the rest of the way?”
Y: “Probably not darling. They must have a lifeboat and are planning to---”
Before Yuri can finish her thought, a loud explosion can be heard coming from the ship as a projectile is sent flying toward the beach.
L: “Incoming!”
The projectile flies overhead and lands in the middle of the beach, nearly taking out Stuart. The projectile that was fired was...a person? The human based cannonball lands in a similar stance to how Clips’ entered. Clips looks away from the grill for a moment and scoffs.
C: “Showoff…”
“Hohoho, that was a mighty interesting landing.”
Everyone stares in disbelief at the person in front of them. They seem to be wearing some weird combination of a pirates uniform and a cowboy outfit.
The pilots all walk over to the pirate cowboy (cowboy pirate?). He turns around, a smug look on his face.
CP: “Arrrr, you all must be the inhabitants of this area.”
N: “And you must have gotten lost on your way to some pirate convention. Or was it a western convention you were looking for?”
CP: “Ah, it seems your tongue my dear is as sharp as you are short.”
Natsuki’s face burns red with anger. Willie grabs her up under arms to hold her back.
B: “So...mister….what’s your name exactly??”
CP: “I go by many names: The Terror of the Deep, The Scourge of Poseidon, The Most Dangerous Pirate of the Seven Seas! But you can call me Nic Beard the Pirate.”
B: “Ok...Nic. Why are you here then?”
NB: “Isn’t it obvious? I’m here to do pirate things! Like pillage and plunder and the like. Now, where have ye hidden your treasures so that I can get started?”
M: “Uh I think you must have hit your head during that landing. We don’t have any treasure here.”
NB: “Bah! Ye emerald eyed siren, you won’t be pulling the wool over ol Nic’s eyes! There is treasure here and I’m going to find it!”
Sayori speaks up, partly amused and confused by the strange pirate man.
S: “Monika’s right Mr. Nic Beard. Maybe you were looking for a different beach?”
Nic Beard turns his gaze to Sayori. However, as he does, his eyes are immediately fixed on to Sayori.
NB: “By Poseidon’s crusty beard, now who is this beautiful sea goddess here?”
Nic Beard takes Sayori’s hand and kisses it much to the shock of the others and the embarrassed giggles of Sayori.
NB: “What’s your name my beautiful angel?”
S: “Hehe~. My name is Sayori Mr. PirateCowboy.”
NB: “Ah! A beautiful name for one such as thee. Well how about you come with me and we sail the high seas together? I can show you the world...and a great many other things too.”
Before Nic Beard can further attempt to woo Sayori, he jumps back as furious right punch passes the spot where his head once was. Nic Beard stares in amusement as an angry Ossi nearly falls over from the force of his own punch.
NB: “Ho ho ho, and who might you be landlubber?”
O: “I’m her partner and could you kindly keep your everything away from my Sayori.”
Ossi’s eyes burn with rage but Nic Beard remains unphased.
NB: “I’ve fought the Kraken in battle. I’ve arm wrestled Poseidon himself. I’ve sailed the most dangerous waters of this planet and emerged unscathed. You little guppy, do not scare me but if it’s a fight you want, I’ll be more than happy to show you your place!”
Ossi and Nic Beard prepare to do battle but just as they are about to clash, Sayori steps between the two of them.
S: “Guys I don’t like fighting! We came here so we could relax. Can we not do this?”
NB: “Ah, the young lass is right. I have a better idea then. How about a little...competition then?”
O: “What kind of competition?”
NB: “We shall take part in a series of events, best two out of three. Whoever wins, wins the hand of this here fair angel.”
O: “And why on earth would I agree to this?”
NB: “Well I can’t think of very many reasons why you wouldn’t agree to it...unless you’re scared that is.”
Ossi’s fist clench as he prepares to bypass the whole competition and turn the pirate into a human heavy bag but Sayori takes his hand. She smiles that disarming smile of hers that stops Ossi in his tracks.
S: “It’s ok Ossi. I think a little competition will be fun. Go and show him how we Dokis do it!”
A smarmy grin pins itself to Nic Beard’s face.
NB: “Then it’s decided! I hope your ability to compete is better than your ability to throw a halfway decent punch hahahahahaha!”
The competition between Ossi and Nic consisted of three events, hand picked by Nic Beard himself of course. The first event consisted of a swimming race from the beach to Nic Beard’s ship and back. Given that the Cowboy Pirate has essentially lived at sea for his entire life, he soundly takes the first round.
1-0
The second event is a bit...stranger, even for this story. Two words: Shark. Punching. The goal was to be the first one to find a shark, punch it into submission and bring it back to the beach. This was one of those events that you would think a pirate might have an advantage on over someone like Ossi. That is where you’d be wrong though.
To the shock of everyone present, Ossi actually wins this event by beating not one but two different sharks. When he arrived back on the beach, he threw the sharks to Clips who asked “Are these sharks!? What the hell am I supposed to do with these?” Ossi mumbled something about turning them into sushi or something. Sayori likes her sushi.
1-1
Now we are on to the final competition.
NB: “Ah it would seem it all comes down to this then.”
Nic Beard throws Ossi a sword as he brandishes his own. Ossi raises one of his eyebrows at the sword at his feet.
O: “You want to have a duel? Why didn’t you just pick this in the beginning?”
NB: “Simple really. The other things were far more fun. This however will be a true test of your resolve lad. Now, pick up your blade and let us see which one of the two of us the fair Sayori chooses.”
Nic Beard points his sword at Ossi as the sounds of music conveniently begin to play again. Ossi picks up his sword and assumes a fighting stance against Nic Beard.
NB: “Engarde knave!
Nic Beard initiates the battle by rushing at Ossi with a vertical strike. Ossi manages to parry the attack much to the surprise of the Pirate.
NB: “Hm, so you know your way around a sword it seems.”
O: “Just shut up and fight.”
Let the fight commence!
Ossi and Nic exchange blow after blow, neither managing to land anything conclusive of their own. The fight travels up and down the beach coast , each fighter using whatever is in the area to their disposal. Following one of his slashes, Nic Beard stumbles backwards on a rock, nearly losing his balance. Ossi takes this opportunity to try and run Nic Beard through but as he tries, Nic Beard falls back and performs a kip up as Ossi’s strike misses it’s mark. Ossi brings his sword down hard on Nic’s blade as the two of them clash.
NB: “Hehe, what’s wrong little Ossi? Getting a little frustrated?”
Ossi takes the opportunity during his opponent’s monologuing to kick him in the stomach causing Nic Beard to recoil away.
O: “You have to be the worst pirate I’ve ever met.”
NB: “And how many pirates have you met exactly?”
Ossi doesn’t even bother answering the question and instead goes back on the offensive. However as he closes in for a strike, Nic Beard kicks sand into the eye of Ossi blinding him. Ossi begins to wildly swing his sword. Nic Beard takes the opportunity and trips Ossi causing him to fall onto his back. As Ossi tries to get up to his feet, he feels the cold steel of his opponent’s sword against his throat. A shiteating grin pins itself to Nic Beard’s face.
NB: “Looks like I win haha!”
O: “You kicked sand in my face! You cheated!”
Nic Beard shrugs.
NB: “Pirate.”
2-1
Sayori and the others walk over to the defeated Ossi as he slowly makes his way to his feet. Nic Beard looks to the group, his eyes fixed on Sayori.
NB: “Ahaha! It would seem I won our little wager. The hand of the fair maiden belongs to me now!”
Nic Beard walks over and takes Sayori’s hand.
NB: “Now, my dear are you ready to go and set sail across the seven seas with me?”
Sayori smiles warmly at Nic Beard as she gazes into his eyes.
S: “No.”
record scratching noises
NB: “Er...uh...it would seem maybe I have a barnacle in my ear or something. I almost thought you said, no.”
S: “Hehe, I did~.”
Sayori turns to walk back to Ossi but Nic Beard grabs her arm.
NB: “Wait just a minute here! I won our competition fair and square. There be rules we---”
Before the irony can become too strong, Nic Beard feels a brief moment of weightlessness...and I do mean brief. Before he realizes what is happening, he feels his body crash into the sand as Sayori stares down at him. The same warm smile is on her face but her eyes seem to be...different. Like the calm right before a terrible storm.
S: “Sorry Mr. Pirate, Ossi is my partner and I choose him. Thank you for the offer though. Also, if you ever try something like that again, I’ll tear your arms off and beat you with them. Hehe~.”
A voice can be heard off in the distance. As the group turns, they see Leo trying to get their attention.
Leo: “Hey guys! Food’s ready! Come on!”
That evening
The sound of a crackling fire can be heard as the group all enjoy themselves. Even though Sayori declined his offer to be his first mate and to sail the seven seas with him, she did offer to let him stay and celebrate with them. As a sign of goodwill, Nic brought several barrels of his finest booze from his ship to the shore to share with everyone.
Leo: “So...uh...Pirate Man, what exactly is in these barrels?”
NB: “Ah this one here has the finest aged rum this side of the Grand Line. This one contains one of my favorite vodkas. Triple distilled. It's smoother than the finest silk. I got it when I visited one of my favorite ports a few weeks ago.”
Leo points over to a rather peculiar looking barrel.
Leo: “And that one?”
NB: “Oh...hehe. That one? That one is special. This is the good stuff right here. I had to steal this from a king when I was in port a while ago. I believe the king’s name was Chumba or Chumbo or something. This is what I like to call “The Partystarter”.”
Leo: “Er...ok. What’s it called?”
NB: ”Dame tu Cosita”
Oh dear…
The resulting drunken aftermath is...interesting. Everyone decided to take shots with Nic Beard but he failed to mention just how...potent...the alcohol was, especially the barrel containing the Dame tu Cosita. Litandus drunkenly flirts with Monika.
L: “hic You know...you know...you’re really...pretty.”
M: “Hehe~. You’re so cute Litty.”
L: “Awww, you called me hic Litty. Does that mean you like...like me?”
Monika takes Litandus by the hand and walks him away from the group.
M: “Hehe, let me show you how much I like you~.”
L: "B-but wait, what about my t-thicctasteful lewderature?"
M: "Hehe~. Don't worry sweetheart. I'll give you all the inspiration you need."
L: "Hehe, you're so thoughtful Moni...Monika."
Bool and Yuri drunkenly are making out on the beach, with a surprising amount of fervor. Either they don’t care about being seen or the other group just is too drunk to notice them.
Y: “Mmmm darling. Maybe it’s the alcohol talking but you taste sweeter than normal.”
B: “Well I have been eating more honey lately since you told me you like sweet stuff.”
Y: “Always so considerate my darling Boolie~.”
Sayori is drunkenly giggling and laughing as she walks along the beach shore, pointing out all the shells and seemingly insignificant things on the beach to Ossi. She seems so happy and carefree.
S: “Ossi look! A shell! Oooooo look, a shark tooth!”
Sayori looks up at the sky at all the stars above her. She lets out stunned gasp.
S: “Aaaaaaaaaaaaa! Look Ossi! There’s so many of them!"
Ossi walks up and wraps his arms around Sayori as the two of them stare up at the stars.
Natsuki and Willie sit on one of the logs near the campfire drunkenly roasting some smores. Natsuki’s face is flushed a deep and profound red. Apparently someone has a bit of trouble handling their alcohol.
N: “I…hic don’t understand why we park in driveways hic and drive on parkways hic. What’s up with that Willie?”
W: “Hehe, I don’t know cupcake. Have you enjoyed your day off today?”
N: “Of course I have baka! I haven’t had...to deal with...any...stupid Bullis or stupid people, except that Pirate guy...but he was nice because he gave me something to drinky...hehehehe.”
Natsuki begins to drunkenly giggle to herself as she rests her head on Willie’s shoulder
W: “Drunk you is cuter than I thought it would be.”
N: “You...you think I’m cute? Awwww Willie! I think you’re cute too!”
The drunken TC and her girlfriend sit and discuss things like philosophy, the meaning of life, and whether or not they should buy a ship to set sail together like Nic Beard.
TC: “You...wanna know something Sara? I...I think we should buy a boat.”
Sa: “But why honey? Where would we go?”
TC: “Wherever we want! We...we could go and have fun and do...stuff together hehehe.”
Sa: “Such as?”
TC: “I don’t know...hehehe. Oh Sara, Sara! I know what we could call our ship too!”
Sara gently tilts her head to the side. She nearly topples over (she’s far more drunk than her dialogue would lead you to believe).
Sa: “And what would we call this sea-faring vessel my dear?”
TC: “The Natsuri! And I shall be it’s captain and you my first mate!”
Clips is...is...wait, where is Clips?
“I’M ON A BOAT! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!”
That...that doesn't sound good.
It would seem Clips has commandeered Nic Beard’s ship and is sailing it around. Stuart and Jack seem to have also gone along for his little joy ride.
J: “Hoist the sails! Swab the poop deck! Loud pirate noises!”
St: “Clips! Slow down! Do you even know how to drive this thing!?”
C: “Oh you worry too much Stuart! Where’s your sense of adventure? Your sense of excitement? Your sense of---”
A loud crunching noise can be heard as Clips runs the ship into one of the nearby rock formations. The ship slowly begins to take on water.
J: “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! We’re taking on water! Abandon ship!”
Jack runs over to the plank and proceeds to perform the most graceful swan dive off the plank and into the water below.
St: “That...that was impressive. Oh and to answer your question, my sense of “adventure” is in the same place your sense of direction is: Not here apparently.”
C: “...shut up Stuart. No one likes a smartass…”
Booker stands on the shoreline comforting the distraught Nic Beard as he watches his ship half sink into the water.
NB: “My poor baby! What am I supposed to do now without me ship!?”
Bo: “There, there. I’m sure we can...uh...find a way to repair your ship. I’m sure Clips knows some people.”
Nic Beard continues to sulk. Booker brings two more shots of Dame Tu Cosita for the two of them.
Bo: “To your fallen ship.”
Nic Beard looks over to Booker and tearfully takes the other glass.
NB: “Ai, to me fallen ship.”
The night comes to a close with everyone passed out on the beach either in sleeping bags or just resting on the sand. The gentle sounds of snoring and the occasional bit of sleep talking are the only sounds that can be heard on the beach. A fitting conclusion to a wonderful day at the beach.
Back at the base
Deep within one of the laboratories of the base, a man in a white lab coat stands before five large glowing cylinders. He walks in front of one of the cylinders and looks into one of them. Within the glowing cylinder, the figure of a young woman can be seen floating inside.
“Vitals are stable. All parameters are well within acceptable limits.”
The man places his hand on the cylinder as the faint sound of static electricity can be heard.
“Soon my dear. Soon we will show them all but not yet. Not yet. Wait for me...my dear lightning queen.”
