Small government isn't a pet hate issue for me. You're crap as a mindreader.

America is just weird in that the party which supposedly supports small government then supports spending billions on the military and police which support the power of the government. Those two things don't go together many other places. Mostly where there's a push to cut government size or spending there a push to cut their power too. I guess American doesn't have that problem too much as they keep their military quite outward facing, soldiers aren't rolling around towns bothering people (though police are).

The UK barely pulls its weight. In truth we waste a lot of money on things we can't use but they create jobs, such as aircraft carriers we can't fit our planes on. The military have little government or public support in the UK so there's constant cost cutting for the stuff they actually need. Most military chiefs admit we wouldn't be able to defend ourselves if we faced a serious military attack. https://www.ft.com/content/36f47240-7c0e-11e6-ae24-f193b105145e

But this is what happens if you have a real push for small government, the bits with guns get cut first not the services. Instead money gets wasted on large salaries for politicians' mates.

Drag, blackface and cultural appropriation by cutenoobies in GenderCritical

[–]jet199 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Blackface causes selective outrage.

The darlings of the woke don't get attacked for blackface and don't even have to apologise. It's just used to attack people they already don't like or see as an easy target likely to fold quickly.

Blackface is a great tool for anti racist campaigners because it's such an easy win and can be expanded to cover so many areas outside the original concern. No one nowadays wants to see minstrels and their old fashioned songs and dance routines. There's no pain in giving the original American form of blackface up for anyone (except maybe comedians who want to be able to target everyone but they are probably problematic so best to undermine them in advance) so almost everyone can get themselves on the right side of the arguement and feel smug.

Drag isn't that because it's still very popular and gay men in a way need it to work out the anxiety and social rejection they experience over their effeminacy. Of course its horrible for women but it won't ever be an easy win like blackface because there's still a real demand for it.

The idea that one is worse than the other or that somehow it's insulting to compare blackface to drag is just because it was such an easy win many people simply haven't analysed exactly why it's damaging or insulting. They just accept that as fact, right up to thinking minstrel shows somehow caused slavery or racism because otherwise why would it get emphasised so much above other problems.

Drag doesn't cause misogyny, it reflects what's already there and then emboldens men who already dislike women.

Sweden - No Lockdowns, No Masks, No Insanity by zyxzevn in Coronavirus

I've seen a couple of black British people saying they think Sweden didn't lock down because there's a conspiracy to kill off the immigrants while still appearing nice.

But Somalis are skinny, they don't die of covid like the fat races. Try again Swedes.

This is cancel culture. A kid being kicked out of school.

Which part do you think is cancel culture? Disagreeing?

Not least because if you bombed Jerusalem every jihadist would be chasing you down until the day you died for attacking their holy sites.

If you think Israel is why the middle east is not at peace then you have zero knowledge of the middle east.

The Saudi royal family basically started as ISIS did but in the 19th century. These people were killing each other long before Israel was created.

How hard can Isreal be to take ? by ElifromtheBook in Tactics

Look at how well the US has done in every war they have been involved with in the middle east. Now Israel is 100 times more competent than any Islamic forces so you can imagine the outcome.

This is their military advantage, not that they are tougher or have more resources, they are just more competent. They have around 50% of their population with a democratic German/Russian culture sat in an area with a corrupt monarchist Mediterranean/Arab culture.

Are women more or less likely than to be TRAs than men? by BrokenEarth in GenderCritical

We aren't powerless at all so we can't know we're powerless.

Rather women want to be nice and kind because they believe that makes a better society. Most people here probably believe that too. The hard truth is sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind and that means you won't have everyone like you.

Women also want to be liked because they want to trade on social capital. There's a self interest aspect in believing woke ideas. They indicate you come from the enlightened upper classes. We still use the word "nice" to refer to both polite people and those who come from a privileged background and being woke is seen as the same as being nice. People listen to nice middle class girls.

This is so sad. I know I would have felt the EXACT same way as a teenager/young woman if trans had been a popular concept back then. So many young girls just want to escape misogyny. by FemaleHuman in GenderCritical

Most haven't gone backwards. I think it's specifically those meek and mild personalities who become TiFs (so much for male brains). And thankfully they are still a small minority.

Being called sweetheart has never bothered me because I've known since a teen that within a couple of seconds of meeting me no one's going to be patronising me. They don't have this assurance because they purposely act inoffensive to be likeable so they try to control people through a mixture of cunning disguise and shaming others instead. They don't realise those tactics would only work if everyone was as soft as soap like them.

Social Media is Largely Faked — Metrics Inflated by hennaojichan in SocialMedia

The funniest thing was when Facebook faked stats which showed people clicked far more on videos than text news so newspapers and news agencies all over the world invested hugely in filmmaking and sacked their good writers so they could bring in good looking presenters for nothing.

The term late stage capitalism is already over 150 years old.

People in the 1860s thought they were seeing it.

It's no different to every generation of Christians thinking they are living in the end times and just as stupid.

The weirdest thing to me about the Americans grievance studies like CRT or queer theory is that they assume the majority is the main oppressive force in society while for the majority of human history has been the story of a small minority elite oppressing everyone else.

Neither, its common sense. Most people want an easy life and to be comfortably off. They don't want to be heroes, they don't get much effected by which particular arsehole is in charge, their perspective is local and personal not international and impersonal.
