    I could be wrong though, this could ride all the way to 100k. Don't try to time market, just invest for the long term and take gains as they come. The bull trend should last into the early 2020s even if we have year long bear runs at times.

    "yelling bubble at $1000" - and were right! Bitcoin reached 1000 in december 2013, but then collapsed to 200 and fully recovered only in december 2016. If someone thinks current exponential growth (5-10% per DAY) will continue for years... well, good luck with it.

    Oh no, I'm not saying it'll keep growing at this rate; it's gathered a few thousand in less than a week. I fully expect a price correction soon, but I also expect it to recover and reach newer highs. Maybe this will take a month, maybe a year, but even if wee see bitcoin shrink a few thousand in a day, I don't think we can say that's the end of it.

    Bitcoin crash? Nah, at least not in the short-term. People have been sounding the alarm bells on Bitcoin since its inception, and each time, the big "crash" turned out to be just a correction. I myself was predicting the end of bitcoin at $5000, and look where we are now.

    What really could end Bitcoin, as I understand it, is the advent of quantum computers, which would render Bitcoin security obsolete.

    I honestly don't understand what's wrong with people. I take pride in human accomplishment regardless of race. I feel just as nationalistic for Chinese treasure ships as I do for the great ancient city of Mogadishu and the scientific discoveries of Arabia and Europe. Fretting over the colour of your skin is stupid if your not being oppressed for it. And to say I have no heritage is equally misguided, I hold pride in the heritage of my species and there will always be a special place i...

Question to Outlook: i've recently read about slave trade in Lybia and slave markets working in broad daylight. Is it true? Or this is the same kind of news as "concentration camps for gays" in Russia?

    I've heard about ransom houses before, and there was one reportedly really near to my house and which again I cross by it on my way to school, but it's been destroyed and dismantled. They even broke down the wall around it.

    I don't know if they force migrants there to work, but it would have to be deeply underground here because ransom houses themselves are considered scummy by most militias with power.

    Hence why the one near my house was dismantled and its walls broken down. Even italian/libyan mafias and militias that deal with migrant 'shipping' cause conflict, as was the battle in Sabratha a few weeks back.

    It's entirely possible that slavery could exist and in some form does exist, but publically it would be impossible from what I've experienced.

    Militias here are community/tribally driven. They aren't like gangs or mafias per se, although they could be. So in that way they function as public servants in place of any real police.

Our current patriarch Cyril, 20 November 2017: "This is already visible with the naked eye. You must be blind to not see the oncoming of the terrible moments of history, of which John the Theologian spoke." Cyril is one of smartest men in Russian politics and though he voiced in religious form, this is a pretty much common feeling. The "terrible moments of history" are indeed near and this is already in the air...

    What makes you think Russia would be so likely to lose? Russia wouldn't likely be alone in the war. It would have China as an ally. The West will probably only launch their war of aggression amidst a deep and unrelenting economic crisis (very likely to break out again soon) and their capacities will be weakened. China continues to make advancements, as does Russia. In several years time, perhaps China will even be caught up with the US in every way (militarily speaking).

    Not to mention the severe internal unrest that will be taking place within western countries because of the economic crisis. And the fact that most of their industry isn't even located within the West and it would take some time to recover massive industrial production within its own borders for the war economy. Meanwhile, Russia and China don't have this problem.

    I strongly suspect Russian government-backed hackers did, in fact, hack the DNC, Podesta, and at least probes vulnerabilities in computer networks related to elections. In addition, there are paid Russian trolls, like these: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OauLuWXD_RI

    On the other hand, the U.S. probably tries to hack other countries, too. For example, the U.S. government has interfered in elections in Italy in a strong way. And there are many more examples. I don’t mind thinkfluencers, so long as they are up-front about who they are, and whether they are being paid.

    @Erowind,
    Even if we accept the dubious premise that the hackers were not government operatives, do you actually think that the Putin government would tolerate such actions were it his government that was the target?

    A lot of nations contributed to the war. Just saying one nation contributed or sacrificed more than others is just bitterness talking, purely an emotional lashing out. Guys, there are already quite few who deeply respect what the Soviets did, let's leave it at that. Now, get a move on and look into the future so those mistakes don't happen again!

    @joe, my point more being that their contribution hasn't been completely erased from history. In the west, western sacrifices and heroes are venerated as russian heroes are in russia, and vietnamese heroes in vietnam. Our film industries and memorials reflect the identity of their audiences and hollywood is western. Thus, we're grow up on a staple of western sacrifice and heroism and see history through our western lense. I don't see anything particlarly sickening about that. If w...

    ...If we're on topic we should also acknowledge that soviet men sacrificed their lives for their soviet brothers, not americans. They're thefefore remembered by russians. Similarly we glorify the men and women who sacrificed and died for their american families and country. We owe them our gratitude as russians owe their own ancestors their gratitude.

Well organized and equipped gangs of thugs under red-black banners, encouraged by media support, attacking people on the streets... how familiar! At least Ukrainian members of "Right Sector" were sincere, they didn't called themselves ANTIfascists nor decorated their shields with kittens and "NO Hate!" slogans.
