Illegal for you, legal for them: Police want separate standard for use of force by dcjogger in news

[–]Drewski 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree that there should be a separate standard for use of force for the police. Officers should be held to a stricter code, and face higher penalties for violating the laws they are entrusted to protect.

Additionally, all dashcam and body cam videos should be accessible to the public.

Q is a red herring. None of his predictions have come true, he is just stringing his followers along and convincing them that Trump is not a part of the system.

Look, I'm against the deep state and I know the Clintons are super corrupt, and I'd love to see FISA declassified, but the whole "great awakening" is a fairy tale.

Shower Thought about Guns - I don't really care that much about them - I'm not scared of them - I've shot a few - I'm just not into them - death and destruction are not appealing to me - but its weird how many people gather around the 2nd amendment when no one uses it to stand up to gov't oppression by EndlessSunflowers in whatever

[–]Drewski 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree with you to a point, many people who would "never give up their guns" would never use them to fight oppression either.

You do have a few examples though such as Waco (which ended poorly) and the Bundy standoff (which ended well).

And, I know this isn't everyone, but many people have a personal red line that cannot be crossed by the government.

Q) Who said “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear”? by Robin in Freedom

[–]Drewski 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think the fallacy here is that people have (or should have) nothing to hide. We all have things we want to remain private, which is fine; privacy is a basic human right. Another misconception is that governments and corporations are benevolent entities that won't abuse the data they have access to.

There are two types of citizens here: Comrades, and Czars. The only difference is that czars have been voted on to execute system maintenance, and have higher security level access. It does not mean their opinion or speech is more important than anyone else's.

Bahahahahaha!

Any citizen can cite another citizen for violation of these rules. For a violation to be logged, a vote of no shorter than 4 hours will be called. The maximum duration shall be 24 hours. Voting length is determined by the citer.

Physical Removal is a concept which was coined by Libertarian / Anarcho-capitalist Hans-Hermann Hoppe in which certain people would need to be expelled to have a Libertarian society. I don't agree with many of Hoppe's claims, but I think do that open discussion should be allowed to root out bad ideas or philosophies.

As for promoting actual violence, AFAIK the helicopter / Pinochet memes are meant as a joke (even if they are in bad taste) and I don't think banning the sub without any warnings or proper explanation sets a good precedent.
