Isolationism, including being anti-war is pretty paleo-conservative actually.
Being anti-war has nothing to do with right or left. The only way it makes sense is if you fall into the narrative that the right are supposed to be villains, and therefore must support anything you believe a villain might support.
It shows a lack of understanding other people's ideology.

Human that are even slightly successful at being useful compared to other humans (not the absolute bottom), will get a share of that pie. So growing the pie with robots is a good thing if you have even the smallest amount of work ethic.

Who says that to eat something you have to cause it suffering? Have you ever heard of the Seek term jeet? It's a standard that some Seeks follow. It's the opposite of Halal, in that the animal has to be killed in a way that it will be dead before it can be aware of any harm coming to it.
Guess what, almost all meat in the US complies with jeet anyway. They don't want dying animals flailing around anyway, and commerce is all about speed. If you can consistently shave off a millisecond that's worth six figures. So these cows are killed in the fastest and cleanest method possible which automatically means fast enough that they aren't aware of any harm.

Life sentences shouldn't even be an option except for the worst crimes (multiple homicide). Even though when dealing with the law, "up to" is a very significant phase. The issue is that if life is a possible outcome you essentially throw out the 5th Amendment when you enter the period of plea deals. It's reasonable that you would say anything to remove the chance of a life sentence.
Since we are taking people out of prisons anyway, we should probably free everyone convicted under a plea deal because it's compelled testimony against one's self (through differential sentencing). If you are treated differently for testifying against yourself, you are essentially punished for not testifying against yourself. which is exactly what the 5th Amendment was intended to prevent.
You cannot treat someone differently based on their willingness to testify against themselves. You also especially shouldn't be able to start with fewer charges and threaten to levy more if they fail to agree to say what you want them to say in a courtroom. And especially life sentences should never never be a part of this equation.
If you had risk of a life sentence and you plead, as far as I'm concerned you are innocent.

Powerful peaceful protesters stand together to block the New Orleans courthouse to prevent landlords from evicting people by EndlessSunflowers in LateStageCapitalism
I was referring to shutting down the economies of entire states. Propagandists such as yourself have convinced people doing such a thing is consequence free, and we are seeing that it isn't. Business isn't about greedy people getting more money. That's 1/100th the market. It is majorally people taking care of their needs and earning an income by taking care of other people. Shut it down and no one is taken care of. Enable investment and more of people's needs are taken care of to the point that the marginal need taken care of verges on luxury, which you hate. But you are soon going to find out that luxury and absolute need are all on a continuum and are taken care of by the same systems. (The ones you hate).
Besides, to the extent that people feel like they are on more of a treadmill than the past, that is due to the Federal Reserve. See, when they print money and give it to the banks at below natural interest, it is a wealth transfer to the banks. You can see this in the more absolute case where the interbank lending rate is at zero real interest rate (a line we've already crossed). If I handed you a loan for $5 at zero interest and said there are no term limit on the loan (pay me back when you want to), did I just give you a loan or $5? When the Fed prints trillions of dollars and gives it to the banks it doesn't create anything.
So having a dollar is having some degree of command over the goods that are available in the market. When you work you add to the market pool, and you get some dollars. Then you can extract from the pool what you like. When a bunch of money is created and handed to some 5 or so parties (banks with a relationship with the Federal Reserve), all it does is shift the share of command of the available goods from some to the banks. So essentially you now have to rent that purchasing power back.
I don't know how you latestagecapitalism folks don't oppose the Fed. You'd have to be stupid not to. The problem isn't capitalism. It's that people who hate natural markets insist on fucking around with it making it worse. You all automatically think any deviation from a natural market is automatically a good thing, but it's not. Sometime we need to talk about how minimum wage creates homelessness. You can see it empirically in geographically similar towns and states.
Your problem is y'alls obsession with false consciousness. When someone tells you what the relevant criticisms of a policy are and why it will backfire you just tune them out as being pro-capitalist.
Shutdowns, Fed, Minimum wage (which if you look at it historically it was intended to be an economic Jim Crow so it's not even that weird to think it could harm people). You keep making the little guy's life worse, because you don't understand enough about economics to even comprehend how your ideas could be harmful.

Vietnam would probably be one of the least politically costly conquests it could engage in and would help it set the precedent that that's just something it does in its region.
So the idea is they would be a target that the US wouldn't protest to because a lot of our debt would disappear?
You would think to the victor goes the spoils including claims to debt. Or is it that China wants more of those claims than it already has?
People who believe in a coming "collapse" - when do you expect it to happen, and how? by Aureus in AskSaidIt

50% of restaurants listed as permanently closed on yelp is already a collapse. Collapse is relative. It depends on who is experiencing what. A collapse exists if a sufficient number of people are experiencing collapse (complete removal of the things they relied on).
That has already happened.
In other news I predict that Bitcoin will hit $900 or above at some point.

They better not get qualified immunity.
If they don't, getting money out of them would be easy. Just walk around with a nazi flag. These people have no discipline. They won't consider any part of that being a first amendment right. And you can sue them.
It's sort of like putting zinc near bridge pillons. You will absorb the abuse before they can abuse anybody being even more reasonable. But it won't be abuse at all because the joke will be on them.
If they do get qualified immunity, then we can't end it soon enough.
Churches don't pay property taxes on their land or buildings. When they buy stuff, they don't pay sales taxes. When they sell stuff at a profit, they don't pay capital gains tax. If they spend less than they take in, they don't pay corporate income taxes. by iraelmossadreddit in whatever
Absolute BS on sales tax. They are a non-profit. The people patronizing them don't directly benefit. That's how all organizations of that form work. If your pastor takes in a salary (now that's wrong.. aka priestcraft), then he pays personal income tax on it.
Taxes are bad anyway. Nobody should be paying them. Churches provide community resources independent of the state and help improve the probability that maybe one day nobody will have to pay them. A community based on voluntary association with voluntary payments into the common pool is not something to be complaining about.
Have they tried working.. or not voting for politicians that force them out of a job. This is latestagestatism. The government inhibited people's ability to provide for themselves and the harm is echoing through the anti-market. A real market would let people work.
