I call BS. I quit going to church at 16 and never sought out a substitute. The last thing I remember about church was the sunday school teacher talking about strange beings called mar-tee-anns being on Earth and how we should be their friends. This went on for 20 minutes until we finally realized he was talking about martians the whole time. He just didn't know how to pronounce the word so we got "mar-tee-anns". Why seek a substitute for that crap.

Tagging left-wing socialist movements of pre-WWII as "right-wing" was just a desperate rear-guard aktion by the left to avoid being stained with the blood and misery they caused. It was always iffy, but now that they got the dictionaries to change their meaning, explicitly tagging "right-wing" as the definition of fascism, it appears it has worked.

That's what Ingsoc, the villain of George Orwell's 1984, was doing - redefining words to suit their purposes.

I really think now that fascism was a specifically Italian cultural phenomenon and really the similar movements in other countries need their own names and we need another overarching name for this family of movements.

I mean there's resurgence of fascism in Italy right now and that party clearly has many socialist and working class focused policies in the mix.

I've also seen people say that non-European movements like the Ba'ath party or ISIS can't be fascist even though they are often a very close fit.

I couldn't help noticing that you failed to include a definition of fascism in your response.

Official narratives about extreme right wing fascism, except for the Nazis were self declared left wingers.

The national socialist workers party.
The Nazis were environmentalists.

Where are the right wing policies??

You're just making up a definition of fascism and using that to apply to whatever you don't like.

I'm applying simple historical evidence, and connecting to the apparent symbolism which it is globally associated with.

The oligarchical symbol of the fasces. Just like the slave-owning, ruling class in Rome.

Distressingly common on the left.

I don't disagree.

However, you've provided a meaninglessly confusing copy pasta.

Your functionally absent "fascism" pseudo-definition is deliberately convoluted to create the illusion of a meaning.

Those fancy words fooled you into believing someone smarter than you (which includes most of the population) knew the answer.

The ignorance of those like yourself helps keep the ball rolling among the divided/conquered. The alleged "right" and the "left".
Both owned by deep state oligarchy.

Most historians agree that historical Italian Fascism was a mixed bag of right-wing and left-wing socio-economic policies.

This isn't a mystery for anyone who understands the nature of oligarchy, and fascism.

The Italian oligarchs were able to pick and choose which policies best suited them.

Don't forget that the USSR had it's oligarchs, as well. Plus, they were financed by the western banksters, which is the visible apex of oligarchy.

Similar to what is happening with the entire world right now.

Global fascism is currently demolishing the global working class; using the pretext, "because of covid" for everything.

Rules for thee, but not for me...

They even have the slaves wearing masks!

This includes the politician slaves when they're in public.

This would be obvious to anyone who wasn't forced to endure 12 years of state mandated education brainwashing during their formative years.

Edit: You know what I'm saying is true, but you still haven't connected the dots.

That's not what fascism is. Please read: "Given what most people today think they know about Fascism, this bare recital of facts (12) is a mystery story. How can a movement which epitomizes the extreme right be so strongly rooted in the extreme left? What was going on in the minds of dedicated socialist militants to turn them into equally dedicated Fascist militants?"

The Doctrine of Fascism

Although written in 1927 by Mussolini with the help of Giovanni Gentile, “The Political and Social Doctrine of Fascism” was first published in 1932 in the fourteenth volume of the Enciclopedia Italiana, of which supposedly all copies were destroyed before the end of World War II. Jane Soames’ 1933 translation was published as a 26-page booklet by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, London. The booklet was one in a series of booklets printed by Hogarth Press, labeled “Day to Day Pamphlet No. 18”. It is the first authorized English translation of Benito Mussolini’s “The Political and Social Doctrine of Fascism.” A number of other books and publications of the era also used parts of Jane Soames’ translation, including President Herbert Hoover in his 1934 book Challenge to Liberty.[8] Hoover went on to describe Mussolini’s Fascism as having features in common with Socialism, Communism and Nazism.[9]

The Controversy

Most historians agree that historical Italian Fascism was a mixed bag of right-wing and left-wing socio-economic policies. But recent evidence has shed new light on the underpinnings of Italian Fascism, discovering that this totalitarian state had embodied a far more collectivistic, socialist and progressive ideology.

The word fascism comes from the Latin fasces, which denotes a bundle of wooden rods that typically included a protruding axe blade.

https://symbolsage.com/fasces-symbol/

From France to the U.S. fasces symbols were frequently present in various governmental seals and documents. The Les Grands Palais de France: Fontainebleau, the reverse side of the U.S. Mercury Dime, and even in the Oval Office in the White House – the fasces is a frequently-seen symbol of unity and authority.

What's rarely acknowledge is that the fasces is a symbol of unity among the oligarchy.

It's no surprise that so many pretend that "fascism" is seemingly difficult for a propagandist media to define.
It's oligarchical control of government.

United; the oligarchy stands against the people.

To be called a nigger-faggot was to be told: you will not be banned for saying the wrong thing, we don't ban people for saying the wrong thing.

I think that the voat.co way is happier and more productive. Maybe I'm being unfair to voat.co and damning it with faint praise. Being happier and more productive than either of the worlds that the author dwelling in, is a low bar.

What If the Media Had Told the Truth? Five MSM Lies for Which Trump Has Been Vindicated, and the Damage They Caused. by Questionable in OpinionPieces

ahh, Trump was suppose to be vindicated. The goal was to make him the anti-establishment figure and fake impeach him muliple times to create the divide.

What would it mean if the Wuhan lab leak hypotheses proved correct?

Oh Jesus fuck man, you're doing the "we have always been at war with Eurasia" thing from 1984.

And WHO? You mean the corrupt WHO who were China's lapdog? Did that fact go down the memory hole too?

You said "they" were banning after I mentioned the world health organization. It really didn't occur to me that you had switched from the WHO to Facebook. They are totally unrelated.

This is incorrect though. Nobody is whitewashing anything. The media and scientists openly discuss the possibility that covid came from a lab, they just won't report it as fact without proof. The leader of one of the largest and most credible/respected health organizations in the world is pushing for more investigation into covid's origins specifically to find out if it was human created.

I never believed the theory that the coronavirus came from an animal to human transition. I always believed it was much more likely that it came from the Wuhan biolaboratory. They were studying various strains of coronavirus, so it only made sense that there had been a leak. I later found out that the virus had been genetically engineered to more easily penetrate human cells.

On Monday, a spokesman for Microsoft said the software company had received a complaint in late 2019 that Mr Gates had "sought to initiate an intimate relationship" with a female employee in 2000. Gates admitted he, "wanted to inseminate her husk."

He may have been forced off the board, and divorced, over his affairs. Apparently Gates is something of a horndog. Which is particularly disturbing because there are rumors Melinda Gates was particularly concerned about Bill's relationship with Epstein.

In other words, and this is just speculation, maybe Melinda was okay with forgiving Bill when she thought Bill was just having sex with adults.

I'm All For Feminism, But It's Kinda Making It Harder To Date. "I instantly write guys off if they aren’t “woke” to the current social mindset towards gender politics and can’t let it go. Let’s just say I’ve gone on A LOT of first dates that never go anywhere." by Chipit in OpinionPieces

I’m on the side that believes whoever does the asking should also do the paying. If I ask a guy out on a date, I would expect to pay, absolutely.

She only ever doesn't pay because she doesn't ask guys on dates, not because she doesn't believe in equality lol.

A Manifesto for the Based, from New Discourses by James Lindsay. Being based is the opposite of being Woke. Woke is wholly intolerant of everything but itself.

Yes. I call it pooling - even before the bots. The votes are not a good measure of quality. I recently posted my idea for MetaVotes™ but no one saw it so I'll delete it and post again sometime, perhaps with illustrations. I'm pretty sure that if folks saw it there's be at least one other vote for effort even if folks think it's a meh idea. Even if it were the greatest idea ever, there's no guarantee anyone would notice. Thus proving the pooling problem. People only vote on what has been seen before. The only good that voting does is NOT elevate the shitty posts (ie. ads and trash), sadly along with all the unseen content.

Building the MetaVote™ would take time and energy and talent and coders - so it's just a concept for the next-generation of forums. The database ramifications would be absolutely revolutionary - and this is where automatic sorting into tribes and your trusted friends idea come into play (also, STABs will be STABs and can also be easily filtered out without to much work and zero need for censorship (unless they absolutely clog the system somehow)). Meanwhile we're working with what already exists on a decentralized forum.

Interesting that I've been preparing my own Libré-Festos - plus related things for /s/Cassy/ and /s/PhoenixForum.

1) Libré-Festos

We need foundations upon which to build - fundamental ideals and immutable concepts that will never change no matter how much our communities and projects get infiltrated as the powers that be try to corrupt and destroy them.

" These outlines should clearly explain the liberty-based core fundamentals, goals, and objectives these next-gen forums aspire to. In moments of doubt or crisis, these will be the founding documents to keep us on course. "

2) Template Sets (for lack of a better term)

To resist the technocracy what will be critical in decentralizing and distributing our free flow of information is the easy application and adoption by ALL users everywhere, including resources for anon-hosting - with 4 fundamental user levels.

  1. Plug-And-Play
  2. Basic Beginner
  3. Advanced
  4. Expert

Not everything will be as simple as plug-n-play, but at least we can aim for that ideal simplicity. That brings me to the concept of "Template Sets":


I wrote the above this morning. I've been setting up a new forum server today with Larry. More on that soon. Also, the comment above is basically a sort of first draft of a critical post I was going to make anyway. More on that soon. I've saved this and will finish later. I need to restart this browser. Sorry for stalling and flaking.

Their agenda is to create chaos by normalizing and decriminalizing heinous crimes. Those losers think that when things fall apart, they'll somehow get to rewrite the laws.

What is the end-game of the Woke ideology? The immediate goal of the Woke agenda is to turn everything into a Woke organ. The Woke agenda is to flatten all the variety out of life and make every aspect of life do one thing and one thing only: serve Theory. by Chipit in OpinionPieces

The immediate goal of the Woke agenda is to turn everything into a Woke organ.

Wrong. The immediate goal is to shake up power structures in order to capture territory in new ways. Ways which culture and civilization have heretofore resisted with morality and tradition.

The meta-idea is that morality and tradition are memes, like how gender is a social construct, which can and should be denied and replaced. The idea is to reshape consensus reality to human will, to be awakened to ways-of-being beyond that which we happened upon by accident and evolution. That is, to transcend material reality by designing it to suit our minds, becoming the "gods" we fabricated.

This is all predicated on a materialistic, satanic metaphysics which explicitly rejects as "evil", whatever that means to them other than denying their own will, all the actual blood, sweat, and tears that went in to writing history, and all the true divine revelation that might have been blessed upon us.

So yes, it "serves [a t]heary", but the totalitarian part follows from the self-deification part. I'm not sure the show would be so interesting if the speakers miss that part.

Apparently, no one is watching the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer on trial for the murder of George Floyd. Otherwise, the media couldn’t get away with their spectacular lying to the public about how the prosecution is killing it. It’s quite the opposite. by Chipit in OpinionPieces

[–]Zapped 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I was surprised at what some of the prosecution brought out early in the trial. It seemed to help Chauvin's case, like the videos of him politely talking to members of the crowd and explaining what he was doing and why he was doing it. It doesn't make him not responsible, but it makes him human and the videos of Floyd flipping out and high as a kite make him look less human. During cross-examination, some of the prosecution witnesses agreed with statements the defense lawyer made.

The Nazis Were Leftists, Deal With It. The Nazi ideal embraced identity politics based on the primacy of the people or "volk" and invoked state-based solutions for every possible problem.
