A Way Out – Popula
“This is because nonprofits exist to manage the contradictions of capitalism.”



“If we are going to survive the coming years it is necessary that we demolish the liberal theory of change. This theory tells you that the individual can change everything, while simultaneously insisting that the individual is powerless to change anything, unless it’s in a voting booth. It insists that you, the individual, can be whatever or whoever you want to be, and by doing so, you can somehow compromise or bargain or reason with the forces of capital. I’m here to tell you that you can’t. Those forces only want you dead. You are surplus to them. You are disposable. Sooner or later they will come for you. Don’t let the Hal Rogers of the world lead them to you.”

The CIA's communications suffered a catastrophic compromise
According to the former intelligence official, once the Iranian double agent showed Iranian intelligence the website used to communicate with his or her CIA handlers, they began to scour the internet for websites with similar digital signifiers or components — eventually hitting on the right string of advanced search terms to locate other secret CIA websites.

Beijing’s Underground City | Amusing Planet
The mostly hand-dug tunnels and bunkers now sprawl across 85 square kilometers stretching all the way to the distant Western Hills on the city’s edge. It was speculated that Beijing’s entire population at that time—8 million—could disappear underneath and stay there for up to four months waiting for the air above to clear from a nuclear or chemical attack.
