After how many times Jurassic Park has failed why is there still investors?
How many times has this place failed or expeditions to it have failed? Seems like the liability lawsuits alone wouldve ensured that park wouldnt have ever been remade.

You are horrified at our intending to do away with private property. But in your existing society, private property is already done away with for nine-tenths of the population; its existence for the few is solely due to its non-existence in the hands of those nine-tenths. You reproach us, therefore, with intending to do away with a form of property, the necessary condition for whose existence is the non-existence of any property for the immense majority of society.

Fun fact:

From what I’ve heard, in recent months there’s been a growing movement in the national Libertarian Party that asserts that rent is theft :), and they call themselves libertarian socialists.

On a recent TV quiz show ( The Chase UK ) there was a question, What political philosophy did Karl Marx theorise ? The choices were: 1 Nationalism 2 Socialism 3 Fascism.
The cynical side of me thought "a form of fascism in Stalin's interpretation", but clearly with that choice, the answer is 2 Socialism. The contestant picked Nationalism ( and only needed to get it right to be " home safely " & she'd earlier upped from £8,000 to £25,000 or thereabouts & moved a step closer to the chaser ) The Chaser chose Socialism & got it right & eliminated her. The host added a comment.. Karl Marx and Engels published the work in 18xx that founded Communism.
I had to laugh. Chasing all that dosh, one last correct answer needed to get back to the team & lost in an innacurate set of choices about the author of Das Capital. And then the host mentioned the correct answer that was not an actual choice.

Remove the no orders/saved/ready icons
There are 10 minutes to go and still !! is shown next to a country. It's probably going to NMR. This allows countries around it to make moves that they normally wouldn't confident that the sensible supports and moves to SCs won't take place. Which unbalances the game.

If the icons were removed then it is less obvious that an NMR is about to happen. Is there a reason for the icons that I'm missing?

CD vs NMR
I'm looking at my CD's and NMR's, and I noticed that in one game that I had a Civil Disorder, it gave me 12 NMR's, another CD 3 NMR's, and then the rest of my CD's I have 0 NMR's. Can anyone explain how this works and why there's such a huge discrepancy on this? And is this also a "double jeopardy" against my Reliability Rating to count NMR's and CD's from the same game? This part has always confused me. Thanks!

New Zealand has a new Prime Minister
Labour did a full coalition deal with our weird centrist version of UKIP, so that'll be interesting. Greens to make up the numbers with confidence and supply in exchange for policy concessions and ministers outside of cabinet. I for one am cautiously optimistic about the coalition of chaos.

Refugees.. Does Uganda treat refugees better than many wealthy Nations ?
More refugees from South Sudan entered Uganda in the last 12 months than entered Europe. Uganda allows them to enter, to work, gives many a small plot of land to farm. To appease locals in regional areas where refugees settle the Government allocates 30% of aid to local communities. My own Nation, Australia, a relatively wealthy nation treats some refugees well, but others with harsh treatment, incarceration in detention camps.
