how communist is Cuba? (daily liberties as compared elsewhere, like the US? by Drizzt in AskSaidIt

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

I've been to Cuba. Besides the Cubans which are not the most refined or civilized of peoples, it would be a paradise without all the embargoes and sanctions against them. It's still a nice place for vacations, other than the fact that the water's edge itself is public property, meaning that these people are entitled to invade those beaches we pay thousands of dollars to visit, and if a resort chair is somewhat close to the water's edge, they will feel entitled to occupy those chairs, while we pay big money to what amounts to exclusive rights to said longchair on the beach. So in this way they are very much communist: there's a chair, I'll use it (no matter that somebody paid thousands of dollars for EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to use said chair).

Besides this, these people have tremendous envy and jealousy of our VERY RELATIVE material wealth, but they have zero stress in their lives. They also love walking resort beaches and staring down the shapelier ladies. Very annoying.

Taxes serve one purpose only: to keep the people down.

They don't finance ANYTHING AT ALL.

The problem is, and has always been, and will remain until it's eliminated, the Federal Reserve.

Any post about problems with the economy that doesn't talk about the Fed's central role in these deserves a big fat F and should be completely disregarded.

Now I'm not saying I approve of the super-rich. I don't, simply because their wealth is stolen from their workers, oppressed into wages that are much lower than the value of their work.

The problem is the rich stealing from the poor, but taxes are not the solution.

Dude, I already told you I am one of the rare few who possess the actual exact science of the mind. Why do you, knowing this, then go on to suppose that there is anything at all that's standard about how my mind works? How could it possibly be comparable to say, YOUR mind?

It is not.

Armed with this science, I can EASILY detect any foreign body, any kind of influence from any provenance whatsoever. It stands out like a black sheep on a field of freshly covered snow.

Also, I am perfectly cognizant of the phenomenon you speak of. It is analogous to Americans thinking their government will never get the upper hand because they have guns. Would they ever shoot the mindless thugs who enforce the system however? OF COURSE NOT! Would guns ever protect them from BRAINWASHING? Of course not! Which is why in the end the 2nd Amendment isn't all that important. Once everybody's convinced the government is there to help and protect, the game is already over no matter how many guns they have. They'll turn those against the minority that sees what's going on.

Lybia had a direct democracy with 0% interest rates on mortgages and a $50,000 grant to buy a house to couples getting married (for the first time). It worked well enough that the USA had to put an end to it.

And yes of course, sovereign citizens is something that has not been done and is long overdue. The US Constitution is flawed for not having been built around that idea. And of course nations should be self-reliant in the extent that it is feasible. Only NWO assholes say different.

But international trade is good stuff, provided laws prevent corporations from forming international conglomerates, and provided individuals aren't allowed controlling corporations outside their own borders. There is a theory of international commerce based on "comparative advantages" that works beautifully: Each nation can do more of what it's particularly good at than it needs, and engage in international trade. But right now the regulatory framework has all been corrupted to make this impossible and allow creation of abominations such as Monsanto, Amazon, Apple, Nike, and so on, and so forth.

Yeah I can't say for sure we did or didn't go to the moon. Do the pictures look odd? Sure they do! But the point is, until you've been there yourself and taken pictures with the exact same cameras and lenses and compare, can anybody be TRULY SURE that those so-called "moon pics" were not taken there?

Also, even if the pics are demonstrably fake, it proves only one thing: THE PICTURES ARE FAKE.

The next question is obviously: WHY are they fake? What are the possible reasons?

My view is that people did go to the moon. And then they realized it doesn't look at all on there as it does when seen from here, because it's covered in a giant hologram hiding alien cities and bases. And THAT would be why the pics are fake.

It doesn't work THE SAME. Which is why all rockets have stages: one for use within the atmosphere, and one for use outside of it.

It's not so much thermodynamics but the uh was it archimedes who first said, "any force exerted on a body engenders an opposing, equal force on that which pushes?" or somesuch. Basically, it's the exhaust from a rocket which pushes against the rocket nozzle, which creates the momentum. It's not "pushing on air" although obviously that helps a little while moving through the atmosphere, but it also helps brake the forward motion of the rocket. This is only valid for a combustion-based engine, however.

There are new engine technologies being developed for actual interplanetary travel which don't rely on combustion: firing a stream of particles at a VERY high speed provides thrust in the opposite direction. That's the conservation of momentum: by accelerating relatively light particles at very high speeds (near the speed of light) in one direction, the relatively heavy spacecraft gets a tiny amount of thrust in the opposite direction. This is the nuclear thruster technology, which expends very little matter, meaning it can go on thrusting for very long periods (years!) at low accelerations, but in turn, will keep providing thrust even at very high speeds.

Needless to say, such a thruster would only be useful for long trips outside of the intense gravitation of planets' neighborhood.

Think of it this way: you stand in a rowboat with some rocks in it. The water is perfectly still. The boat isn't moving. You throw a rock as hard as you can, horizontally, in the direction of the back of the boat. Does the boat stay still? Nope, it starts moving forward. You can do this with heavy rocks (they won't move very fast or go very far) or with small rocks (they will go much faster and further) and you can find the size rock that suits your physiology best at producing the most momentum for your boat. No need for oars. ;-)

To think of "Jews" as people of a certain religion is a mistake. They are a gang, perhaps a "race", perhaps a different subspecies of human. They will play the race card when it suits them, and they will play the religion card when it suits them better. But in the end, who knows how they recognize each other. And what does it matter. At some point, it looks to me like they are ABSOLUTE EVIL.

A necessary evil at that, since man growing impervious to absolute evil will be the greatest achievement ever. So the filth they so faithfully represent is, in my opinion, needed even with all the unimaginable suffering they produce.

Well, this post was about blowing the whistle on the Orwellian psyop about ONE WORD and the humongous consequences it has on the ability of people to think about politics. Just imagine how fragile, in view of this, our societies are, ESPECIALLY after racial, ethnic and cultural dilutions. Before those, you could change the meaning of words and people would still understand each other.

Either way, on to your question. Socialism in and of itself isn't a solution. Not for the USA because as you put it the cronies and lobbies. It could never work. So first you would need a direct democracy such as exists in Switzerland. And secondly, you would need to distribute as much as possible of the Federal government's power back to the states and from the states to counties, cities or whatever other small division that makes sense. And then have another "neighborhood council" layer that takes most of the local decisions.

And of course eliminate private central banking as well as income taxes.

Then when that happens, if your neighbor who works for the local government suddenly buys a Bentley, what's going to happen? People will start asking questions. Accountability arises naturally.

It's not so much that regulations would be so different from one town to the next. They MIGHT be, but overall they won't, because people are people. The point is, if a big corporation wants a regulation to be changed, it has to negotiate with hundreds, maybe thousands of "governments". That takes more lobbies and money than anyone can handle. So at that point there is not enough concentration of resources and power to make cronyism and lobbies profitable. Poor corporations have to resort to being efficient and creative. And at that point, giant corporations are hugely disadvantaged, so they would also disappear.

Economies of scale are hugely overrated, whereas corruption and waste scale A LOT MORE quickly with a corporation's size than does any "efficiency advantage", which is also countered by an "adaptation disadvantage". Note that we are also entering in an era of massive automation, driving efficiency effectively through the roof.

So this era represents both an incredible threat to freedom and goodness, and also at the same time an incredible opportunity for people who believe in freedom, who have goodness within, to be able to finally have a world in their image.

How on Earth are you supposed to have a society? It simply CANNOT work. Not unless one does away with tradition, language and religion. And that's much easier said than done.

Nazism is not totalitarian, though. It was DEPICTED as such, but Germans had a lot of freedom under its regime.

A sense of right and wrong is not the same as dictatorship, unless you are positioned extremely and hopelessly far left, where any and all sense of morality is implicitly to be rejected.

Yep, I'll add, no "men VS women", no "boomer VS zoomer", etc.

EVERY SINGLE DIVIDE is engineered and part of their "divide and conquer" strategy. So far, it's working wonderfully in the West, where we put our most precious people away. Little children go to brainwashing camps and our oldest and wisest go to "waiting to die" camps. At least in China they value the wisdom of their elders. Here, we've lost that as well.

I haven't seen any of this or useless_aether's linked movie either. I will watch both attentively, though.

However, as much as he denounces the propagators of evil, I've always felt his talks, his whole message was about whipping the "redpilling" people into a frenzy of worry and fear about these forces.

NEVER has he even brought forward any kind of inkling to a solution to the problem, other than "we have to snap out of this perceptual prison" which may be an admonition, but certainly isn't a plan or a solution.

In the end, I have felt he works for those he denounces.

This is based on YOUR assumption that the motivation for my actions is how I am perceived by others. It is incorrect. I wrote a reply to him in order to explain why I am not replying to him anymore. No more, no less. When I leave a conversation, I make it known that I do so. I respect myself enough to be polite even to morons. I am not stating he is of that category, either. I'm just giving an example.

“One Does Not Earn A Billion Dollars - They Steal Your Wages” by EndlessSunflowers in LateStageCapitalism

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

This is true.

VALUE is created by LABOR. CAPITAL increases the value-creating capacity of labor. So in fact, the basis of capitalism is sound: the purveyor of the capital is RIGHTLY JUSTIFIED in PARTAKING of the additional value created by labor through the use of the thusly productive capital: Buildings, equipment, facilities, etc.

HOWEVER, and this is where so-called "capitalism" has gone WAY overboard is where instead of "partaking", the capital owner STEALS all of the additional value AND MORE, driving their workers into destitution worse than if they were peasants raising sheep and living off the land.

You don't believe me? Over the past 60 years, the inflation-adjusted per-worker purchasing power has decreased markedly! Even though the "inflation" number has been doctored for well over a decade now. Maybe 2.

But how is this possible in a so-called free market? It isn't. The market is anything but free. The only free market is the labor market: the one who is the most desperate gets the job, ready to do more work for less pay. And as despair grows, so the trend continues, and corporate profits increase.

We are reaching the breaking point however, when Joe Average just can't make ends meet.

The proof is easily attainable: remove ANY AND ALL beliefs from your mind and you will see that man himself is pure and good. It is the thoughts, the ideas, and mostly THE BELIEFS that allow, condone, justify, motivate and glorify behavior that goes fully counter nature.

I know, you want a proof you can perceive in your current, corrupted and infected state of mind. Well you can't. Does it exist? Yes, it does. Anyone with a mental state like this knows and understands this fact. It is up to the individual to decide whether he will be one of the savages or a fully grown Übermensch.

Eh, nope. You speak of apathy yet you spout "that's just the way the world is." When IT IS NOT.

It's the way the world HAS BEEN CORRUPTED TO BECOME. Huge difference. It doesn't have to be this way, and accepting that is "just is" is apathy, and it is surrendering your personal will to that corruption. It remains true: for evil to triumph, good men need only do nothing. You can't do anything to improve the state of things if you accept the status quo. Are you a good man or are you part of the problem?

Whut? That is beyond ridiculous though, I'll agree on that with you. I thought it was the "agent" dude (winnowing?) who wrote that.

But it isn't the Russian war against THE WEST (not "america" whatever that is).

There is ONE WAR and it's not geopolitical. Trump obeys his bosses. Putin does the same. Macron, BoJo, Merkel, you name them. They all obey THE SAME BOSSES. Will they go to war? If the bosses order it. When Trump provokes Iran, it's at the behest of his bosses. Iran is not controlled by the same forces. There aren't many countries left who aren't.

When Trump uses the Swiss embassy to tell the Iranians "DON'T ESCALATE" he's doing that on his own: he KNOWS his bosses want him to trigger an all-out war and he doesn't want it. Will he get reprimanded? For sure. Just like for other things he's done. But he does what he's told to do. And other things also of course. And so do all those "leaders" who realize they are not the puppeteers, but the puppets.

In the end, WE are being played. "OMFG the bad guys are... (so and so)" IS the deception. There are only a very tiny number of bad guys and a much larger number of puppets in positions of power, all arrayed against... PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME! Oh, it's not an armed conflict, for how would you have a few thousand people giving orders to a few million people to gratuitously murder a few billion people? That would backfire 100%. Plus, it's not precisely a genocide that's sought, but simply enslavement.

How do a couple million people enslave 7 billion? By twisting their minds into thinking they are free, that their system is good, that they chose this life and that they're doing fine, when in fact they are bleeding themselves for the benefit of their overlords.

It was a rhetorical question, of course. Who's behind the jesuits? Rhetorical as well of course. If you say the vatican, I'll ask who's behind them. And so on.

Christianity was corrupted very early on. It is that which made it a tool for (((them))) to give themselves the "right" to enslave Christians.

Yes, Russian agencies are doing things. So are the CIA, and so are other secret services. Some of them might actually be warring with each other, who knows.

Of course they do. And by the way, there is an "us" and "them".

US is the citizens, most of which are sleepwalking through this nightmare called "life" and can't help anybody.

THEM is the so-called "elites" controlled by the )3vvs. These "powerful" people are all puppets. So it doesn't matter if you point to the CIA, Mossad or the KGB. They're all controlled ultimately by the same hands with ONE agenda. It doesn't matter if you point to Putin, Trump or Macron. They are all controlled ultimately by the same hands with ONE agenda.

Basically it's this: the few against the many. How could they win? By making the many not realize they're being destroyed by the few. That they are being played. Most of us in this corner of the 'Net have pulled back the blindfold from our eyes a little. But most of "us" are sleepwalking, and the red pill is "conspiracy theory" for kooks and tinfoil hat retards.

A country is made-up notion comprised of the actual things called: A people, a culture, a history, land, borders, and a political system.

But it still doesn't have an independent existence. The parts exist, but the whole is just using a single word to designate the parts as a group.

Remove one country by Racist in AskSaidIt

[–]Horrux 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

What do you mean by "remove a country"?

What, to begin with, is a "country"?

It isn't the land, because land is land. It isn't the people, because people are people. It isn't the borders, because borders are imaginary. Is it the culture? The mores? The politicians?

Countries don't exist. They are made-up notions about people living on land, delimited by artificial, imaginary borders and governed by more or less utterly shithead politicians who more or less thoroughly sell out their power to the highest bidder.

So this leads me to my answer: I would remove the notion of "country" itself, its word from the dictionary. That's the country I'd remove.
