sounds like empty slander unless people can see it and make up their own minds about it

this assumes a moral authority, which can be dangerous

moral authority, or rather thinking you have the moral right to do something is the cause of all strive. Was the cause of the religious wars... even Hitler thought he had a "moral duty" to eradicate people from the gene pool to make a better society. You can't assume moral authority; you will end up hurting people. It happens again and again, everything from an abusive spouse who thinks his wife is bad quality X and should be beat into a better person, to parents abusing their kids to have them "learn" otherwise they won't be tough enough for the world, to the horrible recidivism rate in countries where prisoners are considered subhuman because they're "immoral", to every serial killer feeling justified to torture people in their messed up fabric of how they think the world works. Morality is a trojan horse for criminality. It treats others as subhuman, abdicates their ability to choose, and then causes arrogance in the "ruling elite" which then ends in slaughter of their own people, starting with the minorities until society realizes, "wait, how did we get here?"

Strongly recommend this book.

Author clearly explains how private equity firms are destroying essential industries, how they avoid legal responsibility for the disastrous consequences, who’s empowering them and how they can be stopped.

Private equity’s is to blame for much of the worst aspects of health care, housing crisis, the economy as well as the deepening wealth gap.

oh he didn't know what private equity was until 3-4 months into writing his book... and his employer is the Department of Justice which is the government? He looks a little egotistical considering he doesn't have much experience, feels like a smear job.

and his interviewers are even more pushing anti-capitalist rhetoric... and they make things about specific politicians...

I think they're just upset capitalists figured out how to dodge taxes by using debt lol

this is sounding less like an interesting book =[

I don't think he knows anything deep, I think this whole thing is an opinion piece

"started"

there's acupuncture/diagnosis, qi-gong/tai-chi, meditation, hypnosis videos on there. Can't have that!

also medical PhD students trying to solve esoteric conditions, like ME/CFS which seems to overlap with long-covid a lot and point to... alternative solutions. Can't have that.

nor those pesky nootropics people! What next, youtube videos on how to grow your own cabbages?!

under USSR, psychology got captured and weaponized pretty early on. You're either with us or you belong in the asylum
