The problem with Libertarianism is that while it is a nice idea on paper, no one in power will ever willingly vote themselves to have less power, and certainly not the career robber barons we have fucking with us now. We need a better class of politician in general, but every effort to provide that has been subverted by astroturfing scumbags.

I think there was a time when we were actually advancing the cause of freedom to some extent, while making it worse in other places - but once we won in Europe, the entire bureaucratic-military-industrial complex needed to continue to exist to keep getting paid.

If Germany wants to be allies with Russia, I don't see any reason why we shouldn't withdraw our troops and with them a nice day.

I understood the Cold War as an ideological conflict. The Warsaw Pact was set to invade Western Europe because it was the right thing to do. Communism wasn't just a historical inevitability, it was a moral imperative. And if you took an other view, you had to be ready to defend yourself. So we made NATO and prepared to defend ourselves.

Then Communism collapsed and the Berlin wall came down and it was all over. Maybe there was a case for not shutting down NATO immediately; what had so suddenly collapsed might unexpectedly revive.

Thirty years on from the fall of the Berlin wall, and the defeated ideology is dead and forgotten in Russia. We can stop worrying and convert our swords into ploughshares.

Strangely the US wants to keep fighting the Cold War, even though it won. This is making me re-examine my life. Was my side also bad guys; out to conquer, and not just concerned with self-defense?

And what did we do in response?

We doubled the number of nations in NATO we are sworn to defend, moved the alliance deep into Eastern Europe and adopted a policy of containment of a shrunken Russia.

So it's Putin against the people of the United States? "Putin’s Pipeline"

Nope, it's the 'elite' and globalists who own and run the human farm known as the United States, fighting against their competitors running the human farm known as Russia, for power and control. If all that isn't simply a show to keep the herds mesmerized.

This was probably all clear to close-lookers in the past, but now that they've completely stopped pretending to not be evil (Xiden, Zognald, Soetoro, Bush...), it would take diligent hard work to not see it.

Based on the fact that industrialized nations are far wealthier, have a much higher standard of living, and are better for all citizens by any sane metric. And that status is achieved by not having 50% of people occupied doing something 2% of the people can get done. How do you not understand that this kind of waste of potential and capacity is bad? It's literally no different than having a 2% farming community and a 48% unemployment rate.

50% of India's population are farmers! That's insane. That is not a good thing. That means that 50% of the population are literally not contributing anything other than the food that could otherwise be produced by 2% of the population. They are literally living on welfare. This is not an economical system. This is holding the entire country back. No wonder that despite having a similar population to China they are still a third world country.

It sucks that their way of life is changing, but they really have no one to blame but themselves for having spent the last two generations sitting on their asses doing nothing because they can grow a few potatoes 3 months out of the year and be guaranteed enough money for them to do nothing else. They should have spent that time learning skills, getting degrees, building small businesses, creating art. Instead they did nothing.

The left always claims that if only the working class were unshackled from the oppressive working class life they would build all these great things. India is proof that it doesn't work that way. People on welfare are proof that it doesn't work that way. In reality the vast, vast majority of people will do nothing productive if not force to.

Thanks for seeing where I'm coming from. What part of what Breitbart says about this bothers you? I prefer to be as suspicious as possible of any source of information; this is far more important, in fact, if I am sympathetic to the perspective they are presenting. So if you're willing, I'm happy to hear reasons to doubt what they say.

Thanks for this. I actually agree with much of it, and argee that state power should not arbitrarily restrict individuals acting in good faith. The milk shop, like other food shops in the UK are not prohibited at the moment, but must arrange for masks and social distancing. Perhaps the cops screw-up, as noted by one of the customers, and people appropriately were socialy distanced. I'm not sure if they had masks, however. There are lots of people outside in the UK these days. If they gather around a milk shop, this may be a problem. What Breitbart has to say about this is however misleading.

The fact that it is due to Covid restrictions is actually precisely the point.

Ignoring all the controversy about the numbers, there is one fundamental point on which all sides agree: the virus we are talking about is contagious via contact with other people either through airborne droplets and/or aerosols or through contact with mutual surfaces where those aerosols might collect. Can we agree on that?

If so, then the primary strategy for diminishing spread of the virus should be diminishing social settings with high density of gathered people. An equally important part of this strategy is that areas where people come together must be as well ventilated as possible to avoid developing high concentrations of the virus. The amount of virus a person is exposed to makes a difference in the likelihood of becoming ill.

Now I will admit to an assumption, based on the experience of my own life, but I don't think my assumption is particularly "far from center". I go to farmers' markets a lot. In my experience, farmers' markets are usually outside (outdoor air is the definition of the best "ventilation" available to us on the planet), and they usually involve far lower density of people/space than do supermarkets.

With that assumption behind my thinking (the stand photographed with the article is an outside location; if Breitbart is mis-using the photo, that would be a legitimate criticism, but I haven't seen that said), then the idea that moving people from an outdoor low-density shopping environment (relatively low transmission capacity) to a supermarket - an indoor more poorly ventilated and higher person/space density environment (relatively high transmission capacity) - is going to be worse for transmission of Covid.

This fits with the cops ticketing people out walking their dogs in parks far from any other people. There is zero logic to this kind of enforcement if the goal is to prevent transmission of an air/surface-borne respiratory virus.

Why bring fascism and state support of corporate entities into the argument? Well, given that I see no honest rationale to prevent disease spread, and the rules are there, then why? The de-facto effect is to advantage the corporate chains over the individual farmers. I give credit to those running the show that they are arranging things to their advantage. This is advantageous to them, and I credit them with the intelligence to say this advantage is intentional, not accidental.

Edit to add: Incitement to hatred? I have no hatred for any people. If incitement to hatred is incitement to hate the exercise of irrational and soul-crushing government power, then I plead guilty. I do hate the arbitrary use of state power against individuals acting in good faith.

This is why I don't like "-isms", and I should have stayed away from using one.

I did use it intentionally, meaning that under fascism, there is no "public" and "private" because the interests of business are the interests of the state. That's why Mussolini described it as corporatism. Corporate leaders are simply an extension of the power of the central authorities. Thus, when I see police being used to enforce corporate monopoly (forcing citizens to use supermarkets - i.e. centrally controlled production/distribution chains - is considered in the state's interest, and supersedes the individual farmers' rights to make a living), I see fascism: state power used to enforce corporate profit.

That said, as you point out, communist systems are also about central power being enforced on their populations at the expense of individual freedom.

Like I said, I should have stayed away from the "-isms". All terms that have such broad reach are inherently useless because of the amount they bleed into each other, describing the same negative elements of human nature with subtly different emphasis.

There is one overarching theme. When faceless bureaucracies mandate individual behavior which is counter to the individual's best interests, and they use the force of the state to do so, we are entering one form or other of totalitarian system. The raw insanity of police preventing citizens from being in a place that is almost certainly a safer environment in "Covid" terms to force them into supermarkets has zero to do with public health. This is about the state enforcing centralized economic power.

That all makes sense, whenever I see the media pushing something I often look in the opposite direction to see what's really going on.

About 120 years ago the majority of people were still of the serf class, for lack of a better name. The rulers had a good hold on them, as they had for all time really. Then something changed, people say it was the industrial revolution but more specifically I believe it was OIL. Oil was so cheap, so abundant that the flow on effects to average person lifted them out of poverty and on the road "literally" to a much better lifestyle.

Soon they were clogging all the best beaches, hogging the slopes at the ski resorts and noisily motoring their little pleasure boats in and out amongst the 'elite's' luxury yachts. This must have been galling for the old monied families of the world, as it would be today. This reset might be simply an effort to re-balance the rich/poor equation as they see it.

I don't bother putting it back on Wikipedia anymore.

Here's the definition:

Fifth-generation warfare 5GW - propaganda and information warfare to accomplish strategic, operational, and tactical objectives, without measurable damage that the target can identify. Importantly in 5GW the target may not even know it has been attacked, thus the target has already lost that battle.

As long as people think COVID or SJWs or Alt-Right or whatever is the problem they're not realizing the class war is waged from the ruling class and their deep state.

Well thanks for the vote of confidence Jason, I would have added you by now but I'm pretty slack with those aspects of forums. I had only one on my list, Node, now it's two. It's difficult in places like forums, there is that settling in period where you can tend to offend others by blurting out some criticism of a post, sometimes because you didn't bother to read it properly lol. Phone conversations can be awkward too when discussing deep things, there are no visual body language triggers like when you're sitting in person.

Funny you should mention that. Because of your insights I added you to my "friends". I don't usually tell folks, it's just a better way to cut through the crap and read better content. I bring it up because I had also added all my "friends" (all rational and civil) to the /s/WhiteOwlSocialClub when I was mod. I don't know if anyone is doing anything there now. There are 6 or 7 mods there who can add you. I'll add them in a sec.

Have a forum within a forum, a secret place that excludes the obvious trolls. Vet a poster for a month or two then invite them. All the same content is mirrored there but only members posts can be viewed.

Fair enough, were the odd ones out these days. I bought a huge flatscreen as a lounge ornament and occasionally watch movies on it off hard-drive. Every time I turn it on it wants to connect to the net but it never will. I thought of using it as a monitor and even bought the cord but then never bothered. There is a lot of documentation about how reading information is better than watching as far as analytical thought is concerned. Reading allows the brain to "think" while the reader is reading whereas video is more of an emotional experience and the watcher does no generally think critically during the process.

I find that I will agree totally with a video segment if it is aligned with my current beliefs on a subject or else dismiss it out of hand if it speaks against them. There is no real thinking taking place in my head, just judgements. I experienced this just an hour ago watching a vid on solar roadways off the EEVblog https://www.eevblog.com/ I thought the whole thing was bullshit but it may actually have had some good information. To me though it was just another dreamer's vision of utopia and all the while they were prattling on about how magical the roadways would be all I could think of was the billions of tons of concrete and steel needed to underpin the whole affair. At one point they showed a section where power etc is routed below the road and when I saw the huge concrete channels I went "Ah Ha! Bullshit" No critical thought in that :)

For this reason I prefer to read my news and other information, a little old fashioned in today's world I know, but sometimes the old ways are the best ways. EDIT: This phenomena isn't universal of course, I admit that, A lot can be learned from video. It just seems to me it's a natural channel for grosser propaganda.

We're being attacked right now, haven't you noticed.

The mainstream woke have been saying all over SM they are going to go to all the places the right hang out after their success with Parler. You can see the difference in the comments here the last few days as they trickle in.

Luckily the bunch we have's only form of attack is to call people nazis then cry.

The US makes a distinction between the Kurds of Iraq and the Kurds of Turkey. The first are considered "allies", the second "terrorists". It depends on which side of the border they are.

Which just goes to show what they are fighting I guess. The blacks, their poverty and their inability to own nice cars and buy from Nike stores, and the White MAGA mobs which are fighting the seat of government where the large scale corruption emanates. At least the blacks got to scamper away with some booty.

Look at the insighful scores, you and wristactions. You have 2 because I gave you one but most agree with the fatalistic appraisal of wr. And yet here we are, on a bastion of free speech and yet the majority clearly feel they are "Trapped" in an Orwellian matrix with no hope of discovering the truth. I can only imagine what posters on other less liberal (dare I use that word) sites are thinking.

You're welcome. The Archdruid is defunct now but it was good in its day for explaining much of the madness that has come to pass. I still use the wayback to read it from time to time. The TV is really the main source of poison in this world but people just refuse to accept that and continue to watch the news at least. Since the virus hit I have watched a lot of people/friends go downhill mentally, how could you not with 24/7 fear reporting. I saw the same thing after 9/11, and this is here in Oz mind you! People watched that shit day in day out until they were afraid to go into the city almost. I watched an hour of it on the first day on a friends TV and then went about my life carefree as always, hardly giving it another thought. That was easy BTW because people hardly spoke of it? Odd when you consider the fact. I see the same thing with covid. Everyone around me is saturated with the news but face to face it's hardly mentioned. I'd like to know what psychology is driving that phenomena.

You can't escape the programming, everyone thinks they have control of their minds but the simple onslaught of negative fear news overwhelms their common sense to the point where they can't act. Or if they do act it's usually in a non-productive way. Personally I think the whole covid thing has had many benifits, at least for me and my lifestyle. My job allows me to go anywhere, the roads were quiet, and the places in lockdown, restaurants, coffee shops, overpriced small businesses, were not places I frequented often anyway. If I needed to wear a mask in some places I did, why not, it's better to sacrifice a little pride to keep yourself unnoticed in this world than to go around with a sign on saying you disagree with the government and 99% of people out there.

Sometimes it makes sense to put up a fight against government and big business and I have done that in the past, but when the shit is Global? Forget it. I just keep my head down and plot ways through the madness. So far I have done ok in that regard.

The US went to war with Iraq over the Kurds. And they're the supposed reason we're still in Syria. All because the Kurds are friendly with Jews. They provide 75% of Israeli oil. Fuck the Kurds.

I see what you did here :-)

I mean that the article claims that the Chinese gather them in camps, force them to speak Mandarin, torture them if they don't and so on. That's exactly the treatment Kurds get in Turkey today and nobody cares. The Kurds being the last native ethnicity remaining in Turkey after centuries of such practices. Their leader was captured and driven back to Turkey where he remains incarcerated and obviously the West won't show much concern.

I wouldn't have agreed with this fully until 2 days ago.

I had a "conversation" with someone I knew perfectly well and had plenty of "debates" with before.

But my lord, I even tried to meet half way and show him evidence of wrong-doing by the people he dislikes and it's like his brain wouldn't even see the articles...

Now, I don't think I ever want to waste time talk to them again.

All I have to say now is this
