|Why Are Young Billionaires So Boring? Cache Translate Page Web Page Cache|
Early in Warren Buffett’s life, his father failed to get hired at the family grocery store during the Great Depression. Without a job, and without any money after a run on the banks, the family of four ran up a tab of grocery bills at the store to put food on the table, and even then, his mother sometimes skipped meals. Leila Buffett, beset by stress and with a mind likely impacted by linotype fumes she inhaled as a child, would often berate her two small children.
From this nadir, the family gradually achieved more secure financial footing. His father started a stock brokerage and eventually went on to become a four-term congressman. Young Warren started showing an aptitude for numbers. He became obsessed with timing everything, calculating odds, even tallying the frequency of the letters that appeared in the bible most frequently, according to The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life. By age 15 he managed to earn thousands working his local paper route. The rest, as they say, is history.
On Friday, the legendary investor, 87, was surpassed in wealth by 34-year-old Mark Zuckerberg. The gap was closed in part by Facebook’s surging stock—up 15 percent this year so far—and in part by Buffett’s large charitable cash outflows. Today, the three richest people in the world, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Zuckerberg, have all made their fortunes in tech.
Compared to Buffett and many of his contemporaries, Zuckerberg’s childhood was more banal. He grew up in Dobbs Ferry, a small middle-class suburb of New York, the son of a dentist and a psychiatrist. He started using his father’s computer at a young age, and showed an early facility for programming, before graduating from an elite prep school.
Zuckerberg’s story is typical of the slate of newly minted technology billionaires in the ranks of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. And there are a lot of them. With 64 technology businessmen and women on Bloomberg's list, which tracks the world’s 500 richest people, the industry has produced more billionaires than any other (unless you count inheritances—there’s a lot of inherited wealth on the list, too). This year alone, tech has created 11 new billionaires.
But there's something missing from the foundational stories of this new group of self-made men (yes, they’re mostly men). Where earlier generations' formative experiences revolved around paper routes and pathos, today's prototypical founding story involves an upper-middle-class childhood, early access to a computer, and an elite education—even if that education was abandoned. Before he famously walked out of Harvard University, Zuckerberg created an instant messaging system for his dad's dental practice at age 12. At 15, Twitter's Jack Dorsey was dazzling his bosses during a programming internship. And Uber's Travis Kalanick was writing code by middle school.
The self-made man has always played a profound role in the American imagination. Horatio Alger wrote stories of plucky, lower-class strivers who made their way in the world by dint of honesty and hard work. Hollywood has fetishized the underdog since movies were invented. And for years, the business world offered real stories too.
But the modern rise of the Harvard dropout (or New York University in Dorsey's case, or UCLA in Kalanick's case), complicates that story. Today's founders are long on brilliance, but short on hardship. It's difficult, after all, to become a computer prodigy without a computer. That dollop of privilege speaks to a larger trend in the American economy: For millions of low-income people, it's getting harder to build something from nothing. In order to drop out of Harvard, first you have to get in.
Buffett, with a father who was a politician and investor, often jokes that despite the family’s temporary bout with poverty, he won the “ovarian lottery.” He would eventually attend Columbia Business School and study with renowned investor Benjamin Graham. But for many leaders of Buffett’s generation, dorm rooms weren’t a part of the origin story. Consider Bruton Smith, who until he stepped down as CEO of Speedway Motorsports Inc. in 2015 at age 88, was one of the oldest serving public company leaders. Smith grew up on a farm, never went to college, and once took a shotgun to a construction site to settle a labor dispute. Oil baron Harold Hamm, born in 1945 as the youngest of 13 children of Oklahoma sharecroppers, drilled his first oil well at age 25 (it eventually paid for college). And then there's recently deceased casino and movie magnate Kirk Kerkorian, born in 1917, who faked documentation of a high school graduation in order to join the military as a pilot.
In some ways, it's great to live in the age of the nerd. And it’s tough to mourn the decline of Wall Street-style corporate machismo. But a poor kid growing up today may find it much harder to emulate the life path of someone like Zuckerberg, who coded an instant messaging system before hitting puberty, than that of even Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who grew up in Brooklyn housing projects and at one point served concessions at Yankee Stadium to earn extra money.
Statistically as well as anecdotally, true American rags-to-riches stories are getting rarer. Class mobility, as defined by the percentage of children who earn more than their parents, has been in a state of mostly uninterrupted decline since the 1940s. Economist Raj Chetty found that only about half of the children born in 1980 have surpassed their parents’ income. In 1940, that number exceeded 90 percent.
Of course, most successful entrepreneurs have earnings that vastly outstrip their parents’. In fact, they outstrip the earnings of nearly every human in history. In by-now-familiar statistics, the rate of income growth at the top levels of earning in the U.S. have far outpaced growth at the bottom segments (in the 1980s, it was the other way around, according to research by Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman). Last year Oxfam International found that more than 80 percent of earnings went to the top 1 percent of the world population.
That so many of today’s new billionaires mostly come comfortable backgrounds is emblematic of a broader concentrating of wealth in the U.S. According to recent Federal Reserve data, the median family's net worth had not recovered its pre-recession value by 2016, while the top 10 percent gained double digits since 2007.
Of course, you can still find evidence of rough patches and plenty of hard work in the early childhoods of today's wealthiest tech luminaries. Elon Musk, 47, an immigrant from South Africa, came from wealth, but was bullied as a kid before moving to Canada alone at just 17, where he enrolled in Queens University and transferred to the University of Pennsylvania, before eventually dropping out of a Stanford University PhD program. Jeff Bezos, 54, was born when his mother was 16 years old, and was adopted by her second husband, a Cuban immigrant and an engineer. And Sergey Brin, 44, came to the U.S. as a six-year-old, when his parents traded the anti-Semitic backdrop of Moscow academia for a new life in the U.S.
But even these founders, who all had at least one parent with a science background, stand in contrast to an earlier era. According to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, the second-oldest self-made American billionaire is Amway’s Richard DeVos, born in 1926. DeVos was a boy when his father lost his job as an electrician during the Great Depression, and the family moved in with his grandparents. He remembered stuffing a baseball with fabric and tying it together because he and his friends couldn’t afford a new one. As a sophomore, he was labeled “not college material,” sent to trade school, and had to work to pay his way back into the local Christian high school.
Ted Lerner, who at 92 is the oldest self-made man on the Bloomberg index, is the son of a clothing salesman from Palestine. He grew up in an immigrant community in Washington, and recalled to a local paper, “I remember chickens being plucked and koshered on Georgia Avenue.” Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, 84, now a controversial figure in U.S. politics, grew up in a working-class Boston neighborhood as the son of a taxi driver. Eli Broad, born in 1933, is the son of a Lithuanian house painter, went on to become the only man to found two Fortune 500 companies in two different industries: housing and financial services.
It is, of course, not the fault of tech's young luminaries that the economy has shifted toward technological skills. Even as it's boosted Americans’ standard of living, the rapid pace of innovation has made education an increasingly important factor in determining income, a trend that in turn has exacerbated rising inequality. Overall educational attainment in the U.S. is rising, but nearly 70 percent of the adult population has still never graduated from college. That's even though higher education has increasingly become a prerequisite for white-collar work. The college wage premium, or what bachelor’s degree holders make compared to high school graduates, has skyrocketed since the 1970s and now hovers at about 50 percent, near-record levels.
The so-called "digital divide" between rich and poor households, has reinforced the gap between haves and have-nots. Despite the pervasiveness of personal computing, poor kids today are less likely to have access to the programs that could help them develop early coding genius. According to Pew Research Center data, 87 percent of households with an income of $75,000 or higher use broadband at home. But for households making less than $30,000, it's only 45 percent.
That inequality of opportunity is rising is hardly a matter of debate. What's still unclear, though, is the eventual result. Besides barring the path for talented people of limited means, a widening chasm between the rich and everyone else also presents political problems. Witness mounting anger at tech companies in cities like San Francisco and Seattle. The Seattle city council voted to levy a punitive per-worker tax on Amazon and other large employers in response to the area's growing homelessness problem. Seattle officials relented, but tensions still simmer beneath the surface nationwide, threatening to boil over in unpredictable ways.
And unlike yesterday's titans, the newest of generation billionaires don’t have histories likely to assuage popular resentment. The three youngest self-made billionaires on Bloomberg's index are all Facebook cofounders. Their story is legend: After Zuckerberg's auspicious beginnings in Dobbs Ferry, he created a hotness-ranking tool called Facemash before he and his friends dropped out to found Thefacebook.com. Just above them on the list in age is Sean Parker, now 38, who took up programming early and interned for future Zynga CEO Mark Pincus while he was still in high school.
This is not a lamentation of the comfortable childhoods of corporate leaders. In some ways, the American myth of the up-from-nothing elite was always mostly imagined. The likelihood that a child today will rise from the lowest to the highest quintile of earnings, is less than 10 percent. That’s low compared to other rich countries, according to Chetty’s data, but it’s not much changed since the 1970s.
The American Dream has always been a story we told ourselves, bolstered by the hardscrabble tales of men who rose from nothing to become magnates. Today, Zuckerberg is a moral leader—a family man, and a donor to noble causes. But those looking to follow in his footsteps will cast an eye back to his early days: To the comfortable Westchester upbringing, the fencing club captainship at an elite prep school, the insouciant Harvard days, and to Facemash. American youth may aspire to climb the same ladder. They’re likely to find it’s missing some rungs.

|Turkey VICTORY GOES TO THOSE WHO RESIST! Antimperialist Front Cache Translate Page Web Page Cache||(Yürüyüş magazine No. 72, June 24, 2018)|
RESISTANCE IS CONSTANT IN A COUNTRY WITH CONSTANT FASCISM BUT FRONT REVOLUTIONARIES CAN BRING IT TO LIFE
ONLY THE REVOLUTIONARIES HAVE THE HONOUR OF RESISTING IMPERIALISM AND FASCISM!
Every passing day, imperialism in the world and in Turkey, the collaborationist oligarchy and AKP fascism ruling the country in its name step up their attacks on the people and on different sections of the people. At first glance the increase in the attacks is founded on imperialism and fascism being powerful, but on the contrary it is based on them being helpless and lacking a way out. Because the crisis of the system has been deep in a way it had not been for a long time. Moreover every day its dimensions grow with every passing day.
Imperialism is a system in which a handful of imperialist-capitalist countries, by means of monopolies in the more backward countries of the world, engage in secret or open occupation of these countries, using many different methods to exploit them and hold them under imperialist domination. Exploitation is the essence of this system. There is no murder that cannot be committed in order to keep the wheel of exploitation turning.
Recent history is full of examples of this. In the first and second imperialist wars, millions were slaughtered for the sake of the interests of imperialism. From Korea to Vietnam, from Algeria to Latin America, in many places the peoples were slaughtered so that imperialism’s wheel of exploitation could continue to turn and to make the peoples accept imperialism’s ideological and physical domination. Certainly US imperialism was the chief force carrying out these attacks.
From the second imperialist war to today, a number of events taking place all over the world were characteristic of US imperialism which heads the imperialist camp and done for the sake of its interests, and this is proved by a number of concrete examples. In particular in 1991, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, imperialism announced its “certain” victory and there were developments in line with a process called “a unipolar world”, for example in the Gulf War waged against Iraq, meant to show how “determined” the USA was to dominate the world.
According to a report in the economic magazine Forbes, just the 400 wealthiest US monopolies, headed by Bill Gates who has a fortune of 86 billion dollars, possess more wealth than the GDP of 140 countries of the world, countries like Costa Rica, El Salvador, Bolivia and Uruguay. A US citizen consumes 600 times more than an average Ethiopian… This exploitation is one of the real reasons for the USA’s attacks left and right which do not cease, and for the extraordinary development of its armed forces.
Imperialist plunder – in a world with a population of seven billion, over 70%, that is, more than five billion people, 1.5 billion live on the threshold of hunger and every five seconds a child does of hunger or of hunger-related illnesses.
Every day, 25,000 people die of hunger, 17,000 of them children. Every year 18 million people die of hunger directly, 70 million from causes connected to it According to the UN, this hunger could be eliminated totally by spending 50 billion dollars! That is, an amount not even the profit of one of the world’s monopolies!
In brief, this is what the world we live in looks like. And the most striking aspects of this tableau are imperialist occupation, exploitation, hunger, poverty, injustice, blood and tears. Imperialism can give the world’s peoples nothing more than that.
Imperialism’s Ideological And Physical Attacks Started Accompanied by Its Shouts That “Socialism Is Dead” And The Only M-L Organisation that Did Not Surrender Is The Front!
Imperialism wants the surrender of all who are an obstacle to its policies and when it cannot practise its economic policies as it desires it tries every path to get countries, organisations and peoples to surrender.
Countries, organisations and individuals that are seen as enemies are pressured to surrender; its aim is to delete thoughts like independence, democracy and socialism from minds, liquidate socialist beliefs and impose the definite supremacy of its own ideology and politics.
This ideological, psychological attack takes a parallel form to the military attack, from literature to cinema, from music to TV series and advertisements, to the big media companies, every means, every method is used…
The imperialist bloc, principally the USA, started to use the “socialism is finished” propaganda since the Soviet Union was torn down. This process ran at the same time as the “New World Order” establishment.
In this process countries had no interiors any more, it was said – “the world is a global village”, “no more borders”. This ideological propaganda was so powerful that it was said “national borders will no longer prevent humanitarian intervention” and this created an ideological basis for the occupation of countries, massacres, and every kind of military and political intervention. The impression was created that “imperialism defends peace and freedom”. Deception achieved through this propaganda and with the help of “independent international civil society foundations” succeeded in making them into reserve forces of other states and international institutions.
At the start of the 1990s the imperialists like a chorus proclaimed the end of the class war, the definite victory of capitalism, that imperialism had changed and was no longer the old aggressive imperialism, and it had brought democracy and human rights to the world. However actual developments were not like that, and the words saying imperialism had changed were one by one composed of lies and deceit, it was clear and continues to be clear that imperialism is the same parasitical, exploitative, blood-sucking and aggressive that it ever was.
Statements that imperialism had changed and capitalism had won definite victory, that imperialism had won definite hegemony over the world and the world’s peoples contained a major attempt to intimidate Marxist-Leninist organisations and organisations waging the national liberation war.
Together with announcing the “new world order”, the USA started the process wrapping itself in phrases like “national security”, “the fight against international terrorism”, “protecting democracy and freedoms” and “defending peace”. A product of this period was that imperialist attacks came on the agenda. Occupations and neo-colonialism continued and even became more intense. At the same time from Latin America to the Middle East to our country, everywhere the peoples had “peace” foisted on them but in fact it was surrender they were continuing to encourage.
A lot of ostensibly left-wing petty bourgeois intellectuals joined in imperialism’s lying chorus, bringing left-wing grist to imperialism’s mill. The aim was clear: peoples and organisations waging the national liberation struggle against imperialism were to be made to believe the lie that imperialism had changed and so they would be brought to surrender ideologically as well as physically. Because imperialism knew very well that physical defat was inevitable after minds had first been made to surrender.
Imperialism scored important successes with such policies, it succeeded in getting many organisations to surrender and liquidate themselves. Imperialism launched ideological attacks in th past and continues them today but especially since the start of the 1990sit has got organisations with thousands of fighters like the FARC, ETA and PKK, some Marxist-Leninist, some petit bourgeois national liberation movements, to seek negotiation with imperialism and its collaborators and abandon weapons.
Previously ETA announced a cease-fire, afterwards it announced it had abandoned weapons and buried them in concrete. Finally last May it announced that it had liquidated itself in a letter distributed on the Internet. The Spanish government stated that this did not mean that ETA had liquidated itself, and declared that “a reckoning would be demanded of all ETA members for their crimes”.
FARC sat down at the negotiating table with the collaborationist oligarchy of Colombia and signed an agreement, shaking hands with the murderers of thousands of its comrades and hundreds of thousands of Colombians. It took a decision to have its weapons melted down and turned into monuments. In return for what? For nothing, other than saving their own lives… This is called surrender, for liberation it is not.
In our country the PKK has experienced a parallel process to that of ETA and FARC, and it is continuing to do so. The PKK gives ground every day in the face of imperialism’s ideological attacks, it gave up the aim of an independent Kurdistan a long time ago and it has got to the point of having the USA establish 11 bases and becoming the paid soldiers of collaboration.
As Imperialism’s Crisis Deepens, It Steps Up Its Attacks
Today, from Yemen to Nicaragua, from North Korea to Iran, this is the sole reason for its attacks and threats. As under the name of the “Arab spring”, starting in 2011 attempts have been made to bring countries of the Middle East and North Africa into line, Yemen did not surrender to policies aimed at creating collaborationist governments, and is one of several countries that rendered these politics ineffective.
It is possible to add to the list. And this shows how imperialism’s crisis deepens. It fears that the “21st century will be the century of uprisings”. This is the basic reason for the attacks and threats by imperialism, large and small, direct and indirect. Because of this fear it makes attacks and threats.
US imperialism’s economic and political crisis is based on being bogged down in the swamp of the Middle East, it gets weaker as it steps up its attacks, most importantly it tries to continue its ideological domination. On the one hand it tries to draw forces like the PKK/PYD-YPG that are becoming collaborationist into its swamp, on the other it attacks countries like Iran, North Korea and Palestine as well as peoples that the potential to resist US domination, or else it openly threatens them.
BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS THAT WHERE THERE IS REPRESSION AND EXPLOITATION THERE IS ALSO RESISTANCE!
The only Marxist-Leninist organisation resisting conciliation with imperialism and the liquidationist attacks is the Front. Just one front resisting on the surface of the earth, in which USA imperialism wants to establish its empire.
FARC, ETA, PKK… giving up weapons, having them melted down to be turned into monuments, or having them buried in concrete and signing surrender documents to that effect; whereas we have commanders like Leyla who dug up buried weapons after a bombardment in which many of our friends were incinerated, and used those weapons to demand a reckoning. And this is the great ideological and moral strength we have.
With this strength we are building up our resistance, in the countryside, cities, prisons and both in our country and in Europe.
We Are The Only Ones Resisting Fascism, There Is The Front!
The political, economic and social picture of our country we have described is not different in general from the world as a whole. On the one hand an economy designed so collaborationist monopolies can grow, on the other hand greater hunger, poverty and misery for the poor…
This is the barest statement of the situation in our country. Hunger, poverty, exploitation and unemployment in our country, growing worse with every passing day, ours is a country in which the imperialists confiscate its natural wealth. The result of this is that every day a parasitical collaborationist bourgeoisie grows wealthier and builds up its profits, while on the other we confront the reality of Turkey in which millions are submerged by hunger and poverty.
In our country 16 MILLION people go to bed hungry. Naturally this image goes together with constant fascism. Because Turkey is a neo-colonial country. There is to be no possibility of transmitting the crisis to the imperialist-capitalist countries responsible, so for this reason Turkey is ruled by permanent fascism.
On July 15, 2016, the oligarchy’s internal dogfight came to a head with a failed coup attempt. The AKP continued in government and took the opportunity to declare OHAL (state of emergency) targeting our peoples and revolutionaries, above all the Front supporters. In this period they have even trampled on their own laws, adopted from the September 12 (1980) junta. The AKP has used all possibilities institutionalised by the September 12 pro-American junta, and has caused state terror to proliferate. This terror continues today without any let-up.
AKP fascism behind the mask of OHAL has carried out attacks on every section of the people, from public workers and peasants to intellectuals and artists, from the Kurdish people to revolutionaries and socialists, and it continues to carry out these attacks. The focal point of these attacks is the PEOPLE’S FRONT which does not give in to any repression or massacres.
Almost every month our democratic associations are raided. Our magazine offices, culture centres, associations and neighbourhoods are blockaded. Our associations are sealed but we break them open. We do not recognise bans, nor will we ever!
Without even stopping for breath our people are abducted and subjected to severe torture, even greeting someone is almost enough to be imprisoned. Our events and concerts are banned, our holiday events and iftars are held under police blockade.
They want our people’s artists, people’s lawyers, people’s engineers and architects to be rendered unable to function.
The justice schools for people’s lawyers are among the institutions that have been closed. In Ankara twice, in Istanbul three times they raided justice schools and put seals on the doors. The lawyers and students resisted and put up barricades.
This is what it is to be a revolutionary lawyer, revolutionary artist, revolutionary engineer or architect, which they want to erode and destroy.
We Will Erode OHAL Bans And AKP Fascism And Pass Over Them!
In its 16 years in power, the AKP has banned dozens of strikes. A high proportion of them have been under OHAL. OHAL has been the main excuse for the bans. That is, while the AKP is claiming to oppose “FETO”, it has used OHAL to favour the interests of bosses and as a weapon against the resistance of the workers.
And this is only natural because the AKP is the representative of the oligarchy, in particular the interests of the bosses. They have used OHAL as an excuse to ban strikes and have not drawn back from defending it and stating that they will do everything to defend the interests of bosses. Tayyip Erdogan has given voice to this reality on several occasions. It was Erdogan himself who told (employers’ federation) TUSIAD, “You say we did not give what you wanted. We declared OHAL for you, we banned strikes. Without OHAL could we have done this?”
Certainly they did not limit themselves to strike bans. A great many workers’ actions were not carried out, banned or attacked by police using the same excuse, that “there is OHAL”.
The AKP did not just use OHAL as a weapon against workers but also against public employees, and sought to use it to legitimise their attacks. In the period immediately after July 15, and continuing to today, 150,000 public workers have been suspended.
In the OHAL period from July 15 to today;
Thousands of people have been detained, tortured and imprisoned, prisons and police stations have been turned into torture centres;
Hundreds of associations, foundations, culture centres and democratic institutions have been closed and their doors sealed up;
Hundreds of newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, television and radio stations and agencies have had to cease functioning;
Nearly 150,000 civil servants have been suspended, thousands fired and they are attempting to use hunger as a means of discipline. Two public workers they have tried to disciple through hunger are Nuriye GULMEN and Semih OZAKCA. They resisted on hunger strike for 326 DAYS and turned this weapon on the AKP.
Journalists, lawyers, mayors, trade unionists, intellectuals and artists included, every section of the people has had some share in being attacked as they try to silence all opposition, be it revolutionary or reformist.
In Kurdistan, curfews continue to be turned into massacres.
In the four corners of Turkey, dozens of people have been deliberately murdered at home or on the street on the pretext that “they did not heed the call to stop” or there was a “clash”, and “people run over by armoured cars” are presented as road accidents.
In short, AKP fascism tramples on its own laws and since July 15 it has ruled the country through KHK (legal decrees under the state of emergency). In this process all masks of fascism have fallen, together with the open fascism institutionalised by September 12 this is what we confront in the most basic and deeply-embedded fashion.
Constant Resistance To Constant Fascism
Everywhere It Is Only The Front That Resists
Alev Sahin for 317 Days In Duzce,
Yuksel resistance For 593 Days,
We Continue To Resist For Two Years Without Interruption As The Free Prisoners, 400 People Have Been Sent To Prisons To Be Tortured, We Have Set Fire To 30 Prison Cells!
The ideological and physical attacks of imperialism have affected a good many sections in our country, quite a few organisations that defended armed struggle in the past have drifted into the swamp of legalism and have gradually taken their place inside the system, losing their claims to revolution and socialism. Leave aside claims to revolution and socialism, we confront a left that cannot defend the most ordinary democratic demands and its own institutions against fascist attacks.
In our country there is a conciliatory and obedient left reality that cannot even call imperialism imperialism, or fascism fascism. During the election it has been seen that they did not simply tail the Kurdish nationalists, since in the name of being against the AKP they even presented Muharrem Ince and Meral Aksener as legitimate. From trade unions to democratic mass organisations, from legal and illegal parties and organisations to petit bourgeois intellectuals, all sections distanced themselves from a line of struggle in favour of obedience and conciliation.
And certainly despite all the ideological and physical attacks by imperialism and the collaborationist oligarchy, there is a Front reality which at great cost continues to hold with pride the red flag of Marxism-Leninism and socialism. And we say with pride: the only Marxist-Leninist organisation that resists imperialism, continues armed warfare and lays claim to revolution is the Front.
There are supporters of the Front, we are also alone in resisting fascist attacks. At the start of July 2016 (immediately before July 15) Front prisoners in the jails began General Resistance to rights being taken away and attacks.
Prison uniforms, exile transports, restrictions on books, bans on visits, roll call while having to stand, bans on using telephones, cameras, visits to the doctor while handcuffed, obstruction of treatment for ill prisoners, denial of communication as a punishment, sponge rooms, wires pulling into exercise areas… Every kind of dishonour and attack has been resisted by Free Prisoners.
In two years of the General Resistance, no less than 30 cells have been set on fire!
To try and make our prisoners surrender, there have been no less than 400 times people were sent on exile transports, involving the use of torture. They still did not get revolutionary willpower to surrender. Resistance continues with all its warmth and enthusiasm. These are FREE PRISONERS…
While the prisoners resist inside the jails, their families resist outside and are their breath and voice. Despite attacks and arrests involving the use of torture, the TAYAD Families continue to campaign against prison uniform attacks, denial of treatment to ill prisoners and isolation, and they continue to resist.
AKP fascism does not limit its attacks to the prisons. We have described attacks on all the people’s forces, on workers, labourers, revolutionaries. Look at all these attacks – has there been consistent resistance other than from us?
For example, what have KESK, with 250,000 members, done? A section of the 150,000 public workers suspended have been KESK members. What has been the behaviour of KESK? Did it organise a single act of resistance? Apart from a few written statements, what did it do?
Among hundreds of thousands of public workers, only the KEC (Public Workers’ Front) took a decision to resist. In the middle of Ankara Nuriye Gulmen wrote resistance into history, Semih Ozakca took part in the resistance and every day arrests under torture took place with ever greater attacks. The response by the resistance was to escalate into an Indefinite Hunger Strike.
Despite being in prison and subjected to isolation, the threat of force-feeding and even though their needs were not met, they continued their resistance for 324 days even after being released. During this period, the resistance in Ankara Yuksel also continued. The KEC’s Nazife Onay, Akman Simsek and Celal Akgun were imprisoned.
With the new resisters, the Yuksel resistance continuing in new forms is not only present in our country, but worldwide it has created solidarity and sympathy. Never mind KESK organising the resistance, it actually took a hostile attitude to the resistance of Nuriye and Semih that had set the world aflame. They ignored the resistance and they closed the gates of union buildings to it. KESK actually threatened to call the police when the KEC organised a sit-down action in their building.
What did DISK do in relation to OHAL, and in relation to the increasing attacks against workers by means of OHAL? The attitude of DISK was not different from KESK. They organised attacks on resisting workers, and the DISK gang even organised lynching attacks but the president Kani Beko did not organise any resistance against fascism.
"We will use our power from production" he said in a masterful way and and finally "I will carry the voice of the workers into parliament," he said, announcing his candidacy. Of course this not only the situation with Kani Beko. We are up against trade unionism without any content, a race to get into parliament, a corrupt trade unionism, a boss trade unionism.
Arzu Cerkezoglu, who is replacing Kani Beko as DISK chair made a visit to the Flormar workers in struggle and she said, "No power can stand in the way of a woman who is resisting," she says.
Naturally, you would expect someone who said that to resist or be on the side of resistance but this is not the case.
Arzu Cerkezoglu was one of those DISK managers who organised an attack on Oya Baydak, a woman who actually resists. Yes, the truth is that there is no power that can stop a woman who resists. Resistance that they started on their own - Turkan Albayrak, Cansel Malatyali, Oya Baydak. And from Nuriye Gulmen we know this is the case.
Where are Arzu Cerkezoglu and DISK managers during these acts of resistance? The answer is clear... Arzu Cerkezoglu and the DISK leadership are against them. Nuriye Gulmen went to Izmir to support the worker Mahir Kilic and one of DISK’s central managers was shameless enough to say to Nuriye Gulmen, "What happened to your resistance?"
Has there been a single resistance that results in victory? The answer to the question is also clear: No, there is none.
Of course this conciliationist attitude is not limited to DISK and KESK. The most "communist" in the OHAL process and the most reformist all adopted a “wait-and-see” policy against attacks by fascism. They calculated on how to survive with minimal damage. There were no programmes or goals for the future.
As if they were waiting for someone with a magic wand expecting everything to change, they put their hopes in the ballot box.
Hundreds of associations, cultural centres, publications and publishing houses were closed, seals
put on their doors.
We are the only one that resist the arbitrariness. We dismantled the seals, set up barricades when they came to re-install them. We resisted. Outside the institutions where the Front is present, there was no resistance anywhere. Fascist attacks grow every day. Who else has resisted them?
The situation of TMMOB is no different. 550,000 engineers and architects are registered, only the people’s architect Alev Sahin resists. Not only to get back work and bread but so people are not killed by new earthquakes or suspended.
Just look at the weekly resistance calendar of Alev Sahin! Both in the square of resistance in Duzce
And in front of Duzce AKP’s Office and in a sit-down action at TMMOB.
Yes, she resists against the victimisation of members of your own professional organisation, and the TMMOB management is against her.
Nuriye, Semih, Alev, Mehmet, Acun, Nazife, Nazan, Engin ... they persist for months, they resist.
They resist despite systematic and heavy torture.
Mehmet's foot, Acun Hoca's heart, the hair of Gulnaz, the bruised face of Perihan who is in her 70s, Nazan's broken cheekbone, twice in a day the police drag them along the ground... in Duzce there are lynch attempts, AKP provocations, detention, torture ... None of them had their resistance broken…
The police often do not allow a statement to be read for even a minute before attacking. The resistance, as of 24 June 2018, has continued for 593 days, organising itself even in the midst of torture.
REVOLUTIONISM IS NOT A CRIME IT IS A DUTY
Europe Too Will Not Get Revolutionaries To Surrender!
Oue tradition of resistance in Europe is not new, it is rooted in tradition. Wherever in the world there is a Front prisoner, there is absolutely resistance. No imposition, for Free Prisoners do not submit to dishonour.
Free Prisoners in Greece, Erdal in Poland, Musa Asoglu in Germany, Erdogan Cakir in France – all won victories by hunger strikes.
Not many years ago, in German prisons the Free Prisoner Sadi OZPOLAT many times resisted the isolation by the German state, the imposition of prison uniform, going on hunger strike for months, and every time German imperialism gave in.
Musa Asoglu, in the courtrooms of German imperialism, is turning it into an arena of ideological struggle. The legitimacy of revolution is shouted out in courtrooms, the two ideologies clash there.
Yusuf Tas, Ozgur Aslan, Ozkan Guzel, Erdal Gokoglu are continuing the Free Prisoner tradition in Europe's isolation cells, including hunger strikes. Finally last week, the prisoner of French imperialism, Erdogan CAKIR, won a victory with a hunger strike against the attempts to extradite him to Turkey.
Not only in prisons but in European city squares there have been many acts of resistance. From England to Greece, from Austria to the Netherlands, from Germany to Belgium; long marchs to support freedom for prisoners, sit-down actions, tent resistance, bicycle rides in supporting Grup Yorum against bans, and various forms of action and resistance are carried out by the People’s Front.
Erdem VARAN, father of Grup Yorum member Betul and also Bergun Varan's father. He lives in Holland and has two daughters unlawfully imprisoned by fascism in Turkey. For months he has resisted in a square in the Netherlands demanding “Freedom For Grup Yorum”.
Despite living in Belgium for 17 years, Cahit ZOREL has had his right to remain taken away because of his beliefs, and has been protesting in front of the court building since April 17.
On the 50th day of the resistance, he was subjected to a fascist knife attack but Cahit stressed that he would not give up.
Gulaferit had all her rights taken away after being released from prison, and she resists for her rights in Berlin.
Ozgur Aslan was released and did not accept the impositions of German imperialism, he said revolutionism is not a crime, it’s a mission.
In Turkey or in Europe, inside or outside jail... Imperialism and fascist raids, arrests, heavy
torture, exile transport, prison isolation, fascist attacks, nothing succeeds. Revolutionary will cannot be made to surrender.
No Attack Is Enough To Make Revolutionaries Surrender Because;
Only we are building up the claim to socialism, we resist and win in all conditions... What resistance is and what victory is are not a matter of chance, the issue is ideological independence, ideological determination and clarity.
Fascism in the face of Marxist-Leninist ideology is helpless.
Prison, prices on our heads, artists of the people resist death threats...
People's lawyers are inside and outside prison, resisting...
People's engineers-architects resist...
This is the key to victory.
Gulaferit Unsal has been in prison for years in Germany and now she continues to resist for her rights outside.
Ozkan Guzel resists so as not to accept any pressure put on him.
Resistance is a responsibility on the shoulders of every People's Front member. Resistance and victory to be a link in our chain of victory. Hundreds of kilometres separate them but we can find the road to resistance. We can put pressure on courts and prisons with our phones and faxes.
You can carry out actions, participate in them, make a phone call in support, spread the news. They have won political victory already by deciding to resist, it is our responsibility to turn it into material gains.
History is onot just about bearing witness, it is in our hands to be a part of it. We will win; because we resist.
VICTORY GOES TO THOSE WHO RESIST!

|Comment on Robert Duncan McNeill Explains Why He Won’t Be Directing ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 by Fred Javelina Cache Translate Page Web Page Cache||You seem to be arguing that white men just naturally produce better TV, because, tautologically, TV to date was run by white men.
Logically, you're falling into the trap of survivorship bias, which Wikipedia describes as "the logical error of concentrating on the people or things that made it past some selection process and overlooking those that did not, typically because of their lack of visibility. This can lead to false conclusions in several different ways. It is a form of selection bias."
You're intentionally ignoring the fact that Western/European society of the 19th and 20th centuries, with minor exceptions, derived its wealth from colonial exploitation, via slavery and/or later, a racialized underclass, and was, pretty much, screamingly racist.
We've had *less than a century* of equal rights in the United States, coming after 400+ years of slavery and then 80+ years of 'separate but equal' segregation.
Do you really think everyone is on the same playing field? And that the playing field is level?
Ava Duvernay is a great filmmaker, and so is Jordan Peele, and the fact they are African-American informs their work and makes it unique. Part of the reason their work is notable, is that they are exceptions in Hollywood.
I mean, it's not really that hard to go on YouTube and consume decades' worth of old TV shows and see that the casts were white, the hosts and guests were white, the anchors and reporters were white, the audiences were white. TV and movie producers and executives are still largely white men, and they have a bias to hire people like themselves. It still isn't really a club that is welcoming to women or minorities.
I work in tech. Tech is filled with white guys from middle-class to upper-class families who had access to good educations (and thus, networking among other elite families); home computers at an early age, and often, access to capital to start companies. This wealth is often inherited and sometimes you can trace it back to the Mayflower and thus, colonialism. I mean, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos were *already rich* before they started their companies, they weren't scrappy kids from the Bronx. They and many of the Stanford crowd have a hiring bias towards other people like themselves.
This is slowly changing. Partly because companies are realizing they have been ignoring markets and leaving money on the table, but also because more diverse teams have been proven to work together better, and produce better products. (Compare to: facial recognition that doesn't work on dark skin, health apps that don't include period tracking, etc.)
So SJ Clarkson isn't a genius? She's *just* a solid bankable choice who can turn in a good product on time? Well, I mean, there are literally hundreds of average white dude directors working in the industry who are just like that. Not everyone is the next Kubrick. *JJ Abrams* is not the next Kubrick. Justin Lin certainly isn't. *Nobody* who has ever directed a Star Trek film can be said to be the next Kubrick, and it wasn't their job to be Kubrick, it was to make fun sci-fi adventure movies that brought in big audiences and made money.
Why, all of a sudden, does SJ Clarkson have to be exceptional, to be worthy of the job? Surely she was hired because she is good at her job - exactly the point you want? Meritocracy?
Doesn't that counter your argument that 'Minorities don't have to prove anything?' You want SJ Clarkson to prove she is a genius before you would allow her to work on anything, and you wouldn't ask that of a man.
While we're on that topic: The history of women and minorities in science fiction (and science, for that matter) is one of erasure. Rosalind Franklin, the woman who discovered the structure of DNA (only to have Watson and Crick take her name off the paper), for one, among, sadly, many. (Do your own homework, don't sealion me.)
We forget that it was Mary Shelley that literally invented the modern science fiction novel with Frankenstein in *1818*, inspiring Verne et al much later.
And the readership of novels was (and still largely is) female. Without that readership, and fandom, would we even have the modern SF golden age we have today?
By contrast, every working minority person I know, in both the arts and in science, has to be TWICE as good as the average white straight dude who gets the benefit of the doubt just for showing up.
And they have to work MANY TIMES as hard just to get through the day, in a society that constantly tells them they don't belong, they don't have worth, that cuts them down with everything from cruel jokes to harassment to straight-up murder. I have listened to their stories.
That is why, sad as it is, we need diversity efforts. If we want to get to that idea of a meritocracy - and also, a society that honours and celebrates our histories, struggles, and differences, even as we try to come together through the bond of our common humanity - we have to stop excluding people who don't look like 'Us' and stop thinking of them as 'Them.'|

Here's a sampling of 11 things that you usually won't find in America:
People from the United Kingdom are familiar with brown sauce, a condiment similar to American steak sauce that's available at many restaurants. HP Sauce's brown sauce, a tangy variety made from tomatoes and vinegar, is especially popular.

In the United States, you can blame public transportation delays for making you late to work, but that doesn't mean you'll get any sympathy from your boss.
But in two countries, Germany and Japan, railway companies issue official delay certificates to passengers who were delayed by five minutes or more during their commutes. The documentation can then be presented at work or school as a valid reason for one's tardiness.

|How Kylie Jenner makes her millions and set herself up to be the world's youngest self-made billionaire Cache Translate Page Web Page Cache|
Neilson Barnard/Getty Images
Kim Kardashian West, might be the most prominent of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but Kylie Jenner is by far the richest.
According to the most recent issue of Forbes — which features the 20-year-old on the cover with the heading, "America's Women Billionaires" — Jenner's set to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever with a current net worth of $900 million.
This is almost three times the net worth of Kardashian West, who is the next-wealthiest of the family with a net worth of $350 million.
Jenner, who will turn 21 in August, has built up a cosmetics empire, starred alongside her family in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" as well as in her own spin-off show "Life of Kylie," started a clothing line with her sister, and made millions promoting products on Instagram.
Here are all the ways Jenner makes her money.
Her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, sold more than $630 million worth of makeup in just two years.Kylie Jenner/Instagram
Jenner owns 100% of Kylie Cosmetics and has personally made an estimated $60 million from the company after taxes, according to Forbes.
Much of Jenner's work on Kylie Cosmetics happens on social media.
The manufacturing, packaging, and sales are all outsourced to private companies, and the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch and Kylie's mother, Kris Jenner, handles the financial and public relations aspects of the brand, Forbes reported.
That leaves Jenner to promote her products on Instagram and other platforms, which she does frequently.
"Social media is an amazing platform," Jenner, who has 110 million followers on Instagram, told Forbes. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers."
Kylie Cosmetics is on track to be a billion-dollar company by 2022, according to Fortune.
She makes millions starring on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."E!
In October 2017, the Kardashian-Jenners scored a $150 million joint deal to renew their contract for "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," according to The Blast.
We don't know exactly how the millions are split up between the family, but Jenner's exact cut must be impressive nonetheless.
On top of that, Jenner started starring in her own spin-off show, "Life of Kylie," in 2017.
She has profitable endorsement deals with Puma and many other brands.Star Max/IPx
Jenner has a lucrative endorsement deal with Puma, according to Forbes. She frequently endorses multiple other brands on Instagram, including Fashion Nova, Quay Australia eyewear, SugarBearHair vitamins — and the list goes on.
