A political and economic system as described by Karl Marx
The story is simple: as natural forest is slashed to make room for mono-crops, especially palm oil, the bats from the forest (who carry the Ebola virus) go looking for an alternative food source find it in palm oil : their population explodes and moves closer to human habitat , the end result: a major Ebola outbreak.
While “bush meat” and also eating fruit partially eaten by bats may a factor in spreading the virus, the practice of eating bush meat has existed for a long time, and antibodies against the virus have been found in people who live in the affected areas. In the most recent outbreak it was supposed to be a toddler’s chance encounter with a fruit bat which led to the epidemic, so it’s not clear how eating bush meat would even factor into this current outbreak.
Another case of mono cultures destroying the ecological balance?
Evolutionary biologist Robert Wallace explains the fact that neo-liberal policy and monoculture are the real driver of the massive Ebola outbreak in the following video with transcript
Of course this means that:
1) The roads will be sold off cheaply to the puppet masters corporations.
2) Roads will not be maintained.
3) No new roads will be built.
4) Your right to travel freely will be gone.
5) The road tolling system will be a means of universal surveillance
Of course roads can be built without a government, but why do that when you can get the public to pay for it, and then buy at cents in the dollar from the government you installed into office. Then of course ransom the general public for using the roads they paid for, that y0u just stole off them.

Plainly explaining that its not freedom just because someone calls it freedom, it has to have the properties of freedom.
It harks back to Stefan Molyneux’s explanation ‘the world is a farm’ and ‘to know the farm is to leave the farm’.
In the USA there is an on going debate about net neutrality which is a complex topic.
Basically the issue is large communications infrastructure providers are attempting to ransom content delivery companies for speed (bandwidth) or priority access to their own customers.
This is relevant for the world as many major internet services are hosted in the USA and reliant on their network policies and speeds.
Vi Hart ( who normally explains mathematical concepts ) gives a really good explanation of the net neutrality issue.
* Netflicks is an online movie service obviously reliant on good internet speeds.
