Facebook fat cat against women’s suffrage

This visdeo from the USA says about itself:

26 April 2008

Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) in Iron Jawed Angels is force fed after refusing to eat. The women singing “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” are suffragettes who have been imprisoned for supporting the women’s right to vote.

Song Lyrics:

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There’s a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

For I told that undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For that body you are hauling
Lord, I hate to see her go

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There’s a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

I will follow close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There’s a better home a-waiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Peter Thiel Once Wrote That Women Getting The Vote Was Bad For Democracy

The controversial billionaire actually wrote this in 2009.

05/26/2016 11:51 am ET | Updated 3 days ago

The secretive tech billionaire who recently admitted to funding a lawsuit meant to crush the media company Gawker is known for having some radical opinions. But in an essay published in 2009, he surprised many when he wrote that giving women the right to vote — by constitutional amendment in 1920 — was a blow to democracy.

Here’s Thiel, writing on Cato Unbound, a blog affiliated with the libertarian think tank:

Since 1920, the vast increase in welfare beneficiaries and the extension of the franchise to women — two constituencies that are notoriously tough for libertarians — have rendered the notion of “capitalist democracy” into an oxymoron.

Thiel is well known in the tech world: he was an early funder of Facebook and sits on its board. His remarks on women earned the billionaire a lot of criticism at the time. That he also seemed to blame Social Security and other New Deal-era benefits for the decline of democracy — a fairly common conservative and libertarian view — got less attention. …

Thiel is also a delegate for Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate who has proposed building a wall to keep Mexican people out of the United States as well as a total ban on Muslims coming to the U.S..

In the 2009 essay, Thiel wrote that democracy and freedom are not compatible.  … Thiel could not immediately be reached for comment.
