Very cool. Elegant and simple way to route around the Politburo.

My hat’s off to you Sir!

Late stage capitalism?

Late-stage Post-Maoist Pseudo-Capitalism.

If the Chinese government is reading this, I would be prepared to contribute towards the bullet.

These people are not enterprising capitalists; they are looters. Putin’s popularity in Russia has a lot to do with his own pursuit of similar looters (a lot are now in the UK which refuses to extradite them).


#8

Interesting way to describe oligarchs raping their own people (metaphorically) for cash and then trying to smuggle the money out before their government gets wind of it.


#9

By the Gospel of BoingBoing everyone with more than “enough” money is certainly raping and pillaging entire economies.

Well, you know what they say,

Where there’s a will,
a lawyer
and a pile of money
there’s a way.

late staged capitalism.


#12

Those people sure are assholes.


#13

Well in this case these bastards really are committing fraud to loot their fellow countrymen, so maybe you might want to cheer them less rather than curse a fictional contempt of all wealthy people by your fellow Boingers? It’s your call, of course.


#14

Better a cheerleader for a Chinese oligarch (and have no stake in the situation) than risk having their tongue stuck permanently up their own boss’s behind. Let them get a breath.

@AcerPlatanoides @nemomen so “eat some of the rich”?


#16

No, it’s “praising corruption by oligarchs is strange behavior.” I judge people on a case by case basis, rich or otherwise. The specific corrupt people you were praising for their fraud deserve none.


#17

I praised the technique and routing around bathe Politburo not any individuals


#18

He’s the kind of person that makes both countries involved in the migration worse off … Sadly we’re getting too many of them


#19

So you praise the corruption, not the corrupt people. I see. We’re done here.

Hate the game not the player, homie.
