The story was in the business section...The effects having children can have on a woman's career and pay are well documented: While men and women with comparable qualifications and jobs earn similarly at the start of their careers, this changes when women choose to have children, after which their pay takes a hit. This is often called the "motherhood penalty."
But the data on the effects of limited reproductive freedom are just as telling.
Being denied an abortion causes massive financial distress. And that distress is disproportionately harmful to poorer women and women of color.
As mentioned on here before, corporations dislike families (especially mothers that stay at home) and marriage because single people work more and spend more money on average. It is creepy how accurate 'Brave New World' really was.
To worship Mammon you must sacrifice to Molech.
Why Texas's strict abortion law is terrible for the economy

As abortion rights advocates scramble to fight a Texas law that effectively bans abortion in the state, economists are drawing attention to the financial hardships — and subsequent economic downsides — that can occur when women's reproductive rights are restricted.www.cnn.com
... [ if this veteran] felt at all responsible for the 9/11 Truth movement now embraced by right-wing political extremists, and for modern American conspiracy-theory culture itself.
the viral films he helped distribute as a 20-something had kicked off a cultural shift that culminated in the political rise of Donald Trump.
The series in question, “Loose Change,” made fantastical claims about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, including that the World Trade Center was brought down by explosives rather than airplanes and that the Pentagon had been attacked by a military missile.
The series became a central pillar of the fringe-yet-vocal 9/11 Truth movement that sprang up in fierce opposition to the George W. Bush administration.
“I was f---ing angry. I was angry at the government. I was angry at the media. I just wanted to say something,” Korey recalled. “And so this became my vessel.
Dylan had first set out to write a fictional film about a group of friends who uncovered a 9/11 government conspiracy. Then came a postmodern plot twist: While doing research, Dylan and Korey began to believe the conspiracy theories.
Korey pointed out that 9/11 skepticism at its earliest stages had a lot of support from antiwar liberals like his father, a lifelong Democratic voter who abhorred Trump like Korey himself did. The provenance of these videos was disillusionment, not right-wing politics, he said.
Look at what America has done. I’m not talking about the conspiracies. We were attacked. And what did we do? We destabilized a country. We invaded another country. We killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people,” he said, lamenting that he had fought in those wars.
People are surprised when they talk to me now and I’m not a crazy conspiracy theorist. But I’m not. I wasn’t into conspiracy theories before ‘Loose Change’ and I’m not into conspiracy theories now.”
“When reporters ask me, ‘Do you feel bad for pushing information that has been proven false?’ I ask them back, ‘Do you feel bad for working for an organization that passed on information that was proven false?’” he said.
Korey raged about the civil immunity recently granted by a bankruptcy judge to the family that owned Purdue Pharma, whose product, OxyContin, was central to the opioid epidemic. Too many of his friends had died of opioid overdoses to count, he said. The only reason he didn’t die, he thought, was because of jail and Danielle.
“Even though there have been problems and Dylan didn’t always choose the best information, the genesis of the argument is that there’s a system of lies around you and that you need to wake up,” he said. “It doesn’t matter that it was about September 11. September 11th was the mechanism.”
That’s the thing about conspiracy theories: They are not rational, but they do have a rationale.
I have wondered if this worship of money has truly brought joy into such people's lives that use money to create a negative influence on the world (not all wealthy people do this, but we know ones that do). A lot of the super wealthy that do this don't seem to really be that happy. It also doesn't seem to increase lifespan that much versus someone that is upper middle-class. I wonder what the ultimate purpose of doing these things is.Ill gotten gains not possible without demonic help. Environmental pollution, architecture uglification may also have been the result of the activity of such worship of mammon.
