Please don't start doing nationalistic flamewar again on HN. I realize it's hard to resist, when other people are posting provocative comments. But taking the thread further in the low-information, high-agitation direction is exactly the wrong thing to do here.


Agreed Sir! but why political threads are allowed on HN in the first place? What is Hacking in it? I Just pointed them out to read Jhon Perkins book before painting a rosy picture of the West, the book was written by another American.

I'd request HN team to flag all such threads at first place. I visit HN to learn about Tech, Biz and STEM related, not about politics. Thanks.

The mandate of HN is to gratify intellectual curiosity. Some stories that do that have political overlap. There's no way around it.

I wrote a bunch about that here if anyone wants more: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17014869.
