No, it's because our culture values personal responsibility, education, and business more and Jewish people are like white people on steroids in that regard.

Pretty much dude. It just proves how valid political horseshoe theory really is. You can write the exact same thing and replace the words "white male" with "jew", "patriarchy" , or whatever it is you are mad at and it works. Which shows how simplistic the argument is to some extent. The argument is based more on emotion then anything else.

This, people simplify so much because it's easy. If you want to win a war attack the ideology and its foundations not the boogeyman ((them)) as some like to call them. I wish the world was so simple that we could just dismantle the power of one group and everyone would be happy and peaceful, but in reality there are hundreds of different ((them)) and power groups. If you knock out one watch how quickly another will pop up to take its place. We are fighting a cultural mind virus, not a specific people. Some don't want to accept this though, as fighting against the literal cultural zeitgeist is so much more difficult and demoralizing then fighting one physical group you can use as a scapegoat.
You can use whatever language you want dude. I don't care, it just makes you sound overly emotional and crude. If you just want to feel good and blow off steam carry on, if you want to actually sway opinion though, conveying your message in a more articulate matter is optimal.

France had its post revolutiony reign of terror and China its cultural revolution with the same attributes. We are seeing somthing similar, though less damaging on a physical level.

I don't want it to spike like reddit did poste digg. I do however want others to tell like minded people of this place, as to increase our pool of people engage in discussion and hopefully have some of our ideas on here leak into public discourse. The very fact that neither of us has attacked each other yet at a personal level and instead attacked the argument is a testament to what this place has to offer. Imagine if that site cultural attribute could permeate other large websites like Facebook and Twitter via people seeing the benifits of its practice here? It's value to our society would be immense. Now I understand your concern that quality would nosedive if we had a huge and quick spike in our community and I agree with that statement for the most part. So maybe I should restate my goal as not sudden and fast growth. Rather, consistent moderate levels of growth, that make us large enough to defend from larger sites, trying tactics to shut down our payment processing or web hosting.

Because my aim is to change public discourse and to do so we need to end the balkanization of the internet. There are reasons there are more people drifting to the extreme left and right. One primary reason is that all internet discussion has turned more and more into an echo chamber. We can't solve anything if we don't even have slightly shared realities. If massive groups of people can congregate again and have productive diolog perhaps we can mitigate some of the recent events we have seen as of late. I'm not saying it will solve overything, but we have to start somewhere.

That is just factually false. Mao rose to power after a series of stunning military successes against the KMT such as his 1935 long march organized retreat. Like many communists leaders he was brilliant at two things (military strategy and political manipulation) that got him into power, but a terrible human being and grossly incompetent in all things economic policy related. That's why we have to dig deeply into these historical moments, as they more often enough mirror what we face today with modern leftists. They are masters of political maneuvering and appealing to primal levels of human emotion. But lucky for us they (leftists) have used the same rulebook for 50 years, so if we study history enough we can know how to counteract their cultural revolution. If we reduce they though (leftists) into a simplified view ("them") we will fail. We will fail to realize that this is in fact not so much a conspiracy, but more so a much more dangerous prospect, a collective cultural mind virus that has slowly been permeating into our thought processes. It's scary to face, as there are few ways to kill a mind virus, as it's decentralized to such a degree and most can't stomach to accept it.

What? I don't blame everything on Christianity at all. In fact I think it is quite useful in terms of orginazation. I know you are tying to make a point though that just because one group does not cause a problem in one instance it does not mean they are not responsible in other instances. That being said, the things you think jews are completely responsible for are in fact caused by many groups, with clear economic and political incentives to see happen. Neoliberals dependent open cheap foreign labor, democrats basing their voting demographics on immigration influxes, and a variety of other factors have led the US to instability. Putting the blame on one group is way overly simplistic. But if for some chance you are right and a people of around 12 million can control a world population of close to 8 billion I would say they almost deserve to do so, as it proves a premis of globilized incompetency. We are talking about around 1 tenth of one percent controlling overything with this theory, which would be ridiculous levels of force projection. Now I do get the point you are making, but it's still radiculously simplistic to pin it all on one small group that makes up about a thousandth of the world's population.

Jesus stop with the stupid jew crap. Do you think the culture revolution in China was due to the jews as well? Or how about the period of terror in post revolutiony France? Sometimes the cultural zeitgeist can mess up and needs realignment in accordance with reality, but putting the blame on your Jewish super race conspiracy hampers as to why this stuff really happens. This shit is going to take decades to fix (if at all) and there is sadly no one group you can destroy to stop it.

Can confirm. Went without porn for 3 months once, due to a strict campus porn block in the country I was studying in. All it made me do was lower my standards to the extent that on nights I could not hookup with girls to my liking I would go for easier fish. So I would try to fuck everything that moves in order to get off on dry nights and jack it much more in the shower.
Okay that is bullshit. Even if I'm fucking a lot I still need to jerk it. And I know its not an addiction because if I don't jack off I cum in my fucking sleep.

Black Lives Matter Leader Believes White People are Subhuman, Calls Them ‘Genetic Defects’ – Begs ‘Allah’ to Help Her ‘Not Kill White Folks’ by scrubking in politics
Asians have identical IQs and we are still not sure how much is nature vs nuture. For example white people had a base IQ about identical to that of Africans during the first world War. We have to make IQ tests harder every year to keep the mean at 100. That does not explain why Asians that live in formally poverty stricken areas like China and Vietnam maintained a high IQ though, even through their years of trouble that kept up with the European baseline. Of course all of this is going to be mute soon anyway once crispr rolles out. We will see western backlash at first to genetic engineering, but that will be mitigated quickly once we see the Chinese give zero shits about giving their people genetic enhancements. Of course by the time we do start and contain the conscientious objectors that slowed us down it may be too late. They will have been experimenting with crispa based ability enhancement for 20 years already and we can expect their progress to increase in an exponential fashion once it takes off (intelligence making even greater intelligence). As such they may already be in a paradigm shift once we get our shit together.

Fare enough, but those spots were really not hit hard to begin with. They in effect never had a first wave. That is why I'm predicting around 200-250k deaths by the end of the year after it runs through all the metro areas of the fly over states and states less prone to travel incursions.
People that don't grasp statistics are. They see big numbers and don't know what to make of them. If you mentioned to them that more people die annually from smoking every year though, maybe they would understand that using caution is good, but freaking out is far from necessary.
Because in the more rural areas there was not really any wave to begin with. The US is large thus it's only natural that other states that were less exposed for a veriety of reasons are lagging behind. So what we have is a small second wave in already effected states and a less pronounced first wave in the untouched areas. I expent everything to stabilize in about two months at this rate and for there to be around 200-250k deaths in total by years end. Or about one 1200th of our population. Statisticly speaking we will have a desth rate equal to around that of driving a car in Thailand for one year (60~ per 100k). Is that still dangerous? Yes. Would I be shitting my pants now? No.

I don't think that is true. This virus is indeed serious and should be taken as such. It's just not Spanish Flu levels of serious. We just have to keep our elderly indoors and safe for maybe 8 or 9 more months while younger and middle aged people get back work. If you are relatively young and healthy this thing has about one half of one percent odds off killing you.
We are looking at the same data website. I love it as it's really kept me grounded in this situation.

If that was true then the death rate would have to reach at least 2k a day like it did before, instead we are looking at a continuously decreasing 500 death per day average. Of course this could increase, due to the BLM protests and things opening back up. There were massive protests that made it spread, but going by the data I posted I expect it to not even break 1k at its worst in the next few weeks. So we are looking at a pretty small second wave that will take us back to around 1k deaths a day once these new infections get worst and then back to a baseline of proabably 400 a day dead. That is not to discount the tragedy of the the end result being around 300k deaths when this is all done, but that is a thousandth of our population. The Spanish flu killed around 50 times more people.

Pretty much this. I just visited r/news and left after 30 seconds. It was filled with nothing but posts about the police and white man hits different colored man posts. I left not because I was offended by this, but simply that it looked boring as shit to read through. You have to be really committed to read about boring IDpol topics for 3 hours. I really wonder what their overall unique visiter engagement is now with such limited variety and scope.
Why is no one talking about the fact that we have seen a steady decline in overall covid deaths for 6 weeks now?

That seems reasonable to me. It sounds like we don't have any disagreements then. I just want some nuance in regards to rural vs urban policy. I remember a video of a man in the UK for example, getting in trouble for rowing in his pattle boat out in the middle of nowhere, which seems absurd to me.
If you are in a dense metro area you should wear one, but if you are outside on a farm with cows what is the purpose? Do the farm animals have covid now? It's hard for this stuff to spread in rural areas.
If you have no other option which is better. 1mg xanax a night with good sleep or no xanax and around 4 hours a night of sleep? by Themagicalmidget in whatever
Thanks I will try these :)
Thank you. I will try this
I exercise every for about 90 minutes at the gym. I just can't term my brain off or my anxiety during the night. I do get panic attacks sometimes.
Yes I have a prescription for anxiety and insomnia. It's still bad to take it though I think long term.

How Reddit Was Destroyed: The power now resided in individual subreddits, obviously the most popular ones. There was a power grab to become moderators of these subreddits. Once the default subreddits were controlled, drastic changes began to occur. by Orangutan in MeanwhileOnReddit

Once they start banning porn (and they will) there will be a great fap exodus similar to Tumblr. That is when things will start to go truly downhill. They already started banning some prostitution porn subreddits. They will begin with the most controversial ones and move down to the vanilla.

I'm living in a developing country now and I don't so nearly as much entitled and thin skinned people here. They just want to make money and grow as people. I think the conformable lifestyle of post industrial nations leads to loss of struggle and meaning in life to some degree, thus small problems must be made into large ones to find purpose. I think that maybe the human mind needs struggle in order to grow and feel.

Yes, this is 100% what I'm saying. I never want to silence anyone.

I want real free speech, but also with diversity of opinion, rather than just internet self balkanization like is present on every internet forum as of late. I 100% never want to censure you no matter what you say on here. That is why I love that there are no down votes here and transparent moderater logs. I believe discussion of any topic can help people better understand each other and maybe find common ground. I would bet I agree with 50% of your views while deeply apposing others that you hold and that's okay. I will look at the discussion paramid you are referencing. I'm new here and not well versed with saidit yet.

This is the first website I've ever felt passionatly enough
about to post on so I hope it does. I normally just lurk but I'm trying my best to grow this site. I hate what reddit is doing to the 1st amendment.
