    The extremists on both sides of this are gross. We are currently moving to the one side of the scale where "boys will be boys" and "she had it coming" is prevalent to the side that says "believe all women." Both sides are perpetrating their own injustices. And we have a profoundly imperfect justice system to mediate it all while allowing peoples biases and bigotries to run rampant. I don't really see sexual harrassment and sexual assault going away anytime soon unfortunately. It is as Anita Hill said "you have to change the culture." But there are powerful people who have less than zero interest in changing that culture. For fucks sake, one of them is President of the United States. The part that I find most disgusting is an attitude that is encapsulated in a situation i encountered. I was acquainted about 20 years ago through a shared hobby with a person who i knew had, I think, two daughters and we'd get together with mutual friends and play cards at various restaurants/bars. The dude was an absolute pig (think southern good ol' boy type.) One night a friend and I (we were both in our late teens) had enough of his sexist nonsense and told him to knock it off. He gave the usual excuses. My friend asked what he'd do if some douche behaved like that toward his daughter. His response was ,and I quote, "well I've got a 12 gauge for that." I nearly fell off my chair from the absurdity yet he didn't see the disconnect at all. WTF?! So it's ok as long as it's not someone else doing it to HIS daughter. And that is why this will be almost impossible to root out. The point isn't for society not to try to make things better or that perpetrators shouldn't be punished. It's that a large segment of the political/religious/cultural makeup of the country is absolutely sociopathic and bordering on psychopathic on this issue.

    Only a fool would think the North was so much more morally superior that the whole civil war was only about slavery. If it was, the North would not have compensated slave owners but the slaves themselves whom they left to fend for themselves for the last century.

    Would you rather live in poverty or die? When you think about it, poverty is something the Conservatives don't understand. They fear poverty and see opening the US on Easter with millions of people dying, as not a bad idea. It removes their problem from the equation of society. They no longer take responsibility for anything that doesn't make them rich. Poor people are a danger to their vision of the United States. They hate people who help others and expect the money (taxpayer money) going out should go in their pockets, not to the poor. They believe in economic equations that only consider human consumption and labor in them. Given the current situation, money is more important than lives, because death removes the unwanted from the mysterious part of the equation. Yah, I don't get it either. It is just like the energy problem. What is more important, a barrel of oil or a life lost in a war.

    I see all these amateurs here trying to say that there were only X amount of owners in the South, usually a low 2 or 6% and naturally they never say how they arrived at that number. ... Well it's all trash. In reality on average in the states that rebelled 1/3 of families were owners and this rose to almost 1/2 in the deep South. And I'll let the Antebellum South itself, and the former head of the Census office make that clear: _"When in charge of the national census office, several years since, I found that it had been stated by an abolition Senator from his seat, that the number of slaveholders at the South did not exceed 150,000. Convinced that it was a gross misrepresentation of the facts, I caused a careful examination of the returns to be made, which fixed the actual number at 347,255, and communicated the information, by note, to Senator Cass, who read it in the Senate._ _I first called attention to the fact that the number embraced slaveholding families, and that to arrive at the actual number of slaveholders, it would be necessary to multiply by the proportion of persons, which the census showed to a family. When this was done, the number swelled to about 2,000,000._ _Since these results were made public, I have had reason to think, that the separation of the schedules of the slave and the free, was calculated to lead to omissions of the single properties, and that on this account it would be safe to put the number of families at 375,000, and the number of actual slaveholders at about two million and a quarter. Assuming the published returns, however to be correct, it will appear that _*_one-half of the population of South Carolina, Mississippi, and Louisiana, excluding the cities, are slaveholders, and that one-third of the population of the entire South are similarly circumstanced._* _It will thus appear that the slaveholders of the South so far from constituting numerically an insignificant portion of its people, as has been malignantly alleged, make up an aggregate greater in relative proportion than the holders of any other species of property whatever, in any part of the world; and that of no other property can it be said, with equal truthfulness, that it is an interest of the whole community."_ - J.D.B. DeBow, December 1860 .

    The best advise i would give anybody to use offline password manager. And the password file will be in your sd card or you can upload it to the cloud storage. Because the password.kdbx file is very secure and encrypted so if anybody get access to the password file which is in your sd card or on the cloud storage they would not be able to read the file in anyway without knowing the master password.

    So this Country was split after the Civil War, and I fought for the rights of all Americans, though think about the need to rebuild after brother killed brother and mother, father, sister, brother, family splits apart. I do not support this video as it remarked one-sided argument with indeed a camera, video, and a person with authority not advocating but putting down a straw man argument for one side. Thus, this does not build a nation but continues to push people one party to another without understanding each side of that feeling and belief. John Oliver does not seem to be a smart man; if he was, he would have come at this with more neutrality to understand truth lies somewhere in the middle, not one side or another.

    I'm just wondering about a few things. Why is there a British comedian talking about a complicated civil war which happened in US, and boiling it down to just being about slavery? It should be accounted that there had been a fierce loyalty towards your state rather than the federal government, and furthermore there had been a growing resentment between the north and south for decades. A great majority of the men fighting on both sides of the war didn't think they were fighting about slavery. Only a few wealthy landowners owned slaves, but as for the fighting men they didn't largely care about that. On the confederate side, most men fought for their homes, states, and freedom from federal government, as volunteers. A large factor in the large numbers of volunteers on both sides was also the simple reason of men seeking adventure and the field of glory, as to escape the boring monotony of farm or factory work. Every civilized person on the planet knows that slavery was and is wrong, and yes the confederacy was an evil institution supporting slavery, no one is denying that. But is it really reasonable to further create a divide between political lines on arguing about these things that happened roughly 150 years ago, by suddenly demanding tearing down monuments? It doesn't change the past, and this kind of divisiveness just might be sowing new seeds for civil strife. And furthermore shouldn't it be left to the communities themselves weather to take them down or not? They're the ones who have to look at them. All this seems just pretty bizarre from across the Atlantic.

    1958 - Richard and Mildred Loving had married in Washington, D.C. to evade Virginia's anti-miscegenation laws, including the Racial Integrity Act. Having returned to Virginia, they were arrested in their bedroom for living together as an interracial couple (Richard Loving was deemed 1/16th African American). The judge suspended their sentence on the condition that the Loving's leave Virginia and not return for 25 years. In 1963, the Loving's, who had moved to Washington, D.C, decided to appeal this judgment. In 1965, Virginia trial court Judge Leon Bazile, who heard their original case, refused to reconsider his decision. Instead, he defended racial segregation, writing: " Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, Malay, and red, and placed them on separate continents, and but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend the races to mix ". In 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Virginia's anti-miscegenation laws, condemning them as "designed to maintain White supremacy".

    First of all: I´m not sayng I don´t want refugees here, If you are runing from war and don´t plan use our country as trancit country then feel free to seek alysium if you qualify for it. I´m from Czech Republic and there was a lot of hate against us besause we wouldn´t take in migrants...try to look at is from our side-we took in several migrants(id I remember corectly it was about 20) and they fled to Germany! So if you are running avay from war/opression/powerty and a country like Czech Republic let you stay there, oferes to get you a job, gets you a place to stay(which is much more than what our state garantuie to its regular citizens) and you run to Germany because you will get more money there than you are not a refugee seeking alysium but an economic migrant and you can wait and get to the country legaly. At the time we ofered to take a orphan children but we were "offered" by Greece to "pick" them out of a group of teeneger boys from Afgania and Pakistan(16-18 years old)-please tell me, who is more of a security risk: a young chilld/baby or young adult male? Other thing is that Czechia is one of the most atheistic countries in the world and from what I se around me we generarly frown upon ANY religion(and yes, even christians but less so. We basicly ignore them if they are not trying to bring religion to every conversation or try to convert us).

    John, we at India were told to light candles at April 5 9 pm to spread hope about the fight against Coronavirus, and we get messages like this on WhatsApp regarding its use: Artificial light such as tubelight emits electromagnetic waves of certain frequency. One disadvantage is that it blocks the natural light coming from distant stars and Moon. These natural lights has infra-ultrasonic hyper modulated frequency which can act upon the lipid layers of mRNA dependent corona virus in nano seconds. Some tons of corona virus can be destroyed in 9 minutes time. Also candle light and DIYA eminates heat which eliminates the remaining corona hiding in your home🙏🙏. The candle or दिया flames have temperatures in the range of 400° to 500° Celsius.When so so so many candles will light for 9 minutes,imagine the impact on the environment and the heat so generated will decimate the virus.Why 9 mins, 9 P M and 5th Apr(5+4)?9 in the numerology is an adamant digit,which can not be destroyed. It is symbolic of creating awareness at every level the the positivity together can eliminate negativity. The flame🔥 of positivity burns negativity. 🙏 Please joke about this... please please please please please please please please please please. Also please end your show with lighting a diya😁
