Maybe we should just get rid of all forms of media and journalism because you don't care?
What are your even talking about ? This is as far from journalism as it can get: This is just a modern version of getting the pitchfork out. No one cares that this case is actually two seperate cases, or that surely a big part of the people that are making a fuzz right now are probably partly responsible for such things to happen: either because they gave their ballot to a party that activly supports and creates an economic environment for such things to happen or even perpetuating the "I take the cheapest offer, and I don't care how these cheap prices are possible" spiral when the book a flight next time.
And again I never said that its something "no one should ever talk about at all", I asked they question, why does this need to be dragged out here, when its already discuessed to death in so many places. Still would like to get an answer.
That makes no sense. Why would anyone need to be dragged from the terminal? If they haven't boarded the plane yet they can just stop them from boarding at the gate.
Maybe I misunderstood the content of the article vcoleiro1 linked to, but other then there is a deadline now for airline employees to "reserve" a seat, it is the same as before - only the "venue" will change. So you assume that someone that actively (physically) refused to leave a plane - even in the presence of local police authority - will just shrug it off and leave, if he is told that he won't be allowed to board the plane although he has a valid ticket ?
I certainly have some socialist sympathies, so if it sounded that way, it's accurate. If you're referring to the specific book, I think it's titled the Communist Manifesto.
I think we can acknowledge violence is sometimes unfortunately unavoidable while still agreeing that it is bad and should be minimized where possible.
Yes we do (and politically, I guess we are "headed" in the same direction") but your response appeared (to me) to be more a "reflex" then anything else, thats why I reffered to the non existent "handbook", something you pull out to have a quick solution/response to a happenstance.
As to your question I missed answering: Yes people should know with what or whom they are dealing with, but what lasting effect the "internet outrage of the week" will have ? From my point of view there is no lasting effect, as long as the only reaction to it is likes, retweets and post like the starting post of this thread. Without people actually doing something about it - and even its one they can easily do without getting away from their displays: by (not) using the sword that eveyone wields in this economic system: their wallet - the whole thing is meaningleass, in my opinion,
