Re: Garbage In Garbage Out

'Except' the truth? Is that really what the little inspirational meme writer intended to say? Probably yes. It depends how the 'meme' is interpreted. To me personally, it is saying...( stop wasting time on other peoples truths, except your own ) Although, it could be seen to be misleading, as the w...

Re: Racial Alternatives

Co founder of ''Black lives matter'' is a true 'woke progressive' of the highest order. She doesn't care about 'colour' at all, which is why she has just bought four high end properties in predominantly 'white' neighbourhoods. I am sure that all the wokies who have donated a hundred million dollars ...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

...countries like Norway, Canada, New Zealand etc? I can see a huge difference. Russia, China, Venezuela, etc. are Socialist. Canada, Norway, New Zealand, etc. are capitalist. Norway runs on its abundant oil supplies, sold on the free market, or it would not be able to sustain its social programs f...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

Venezuela, Cuba This shit has got to stop. Both Venezuela and Cuba are socialist success stories. They were as good as they could be in the face of massive US interference and frankly are still doing better than America would have done with them if they'd been colonized. Venezuela only turned sour ...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

North Korea is Socialist. It's a totalitarian dictatorship. A Socialist State, turned Socialist dictatorship...like Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Albania, Romania... And you can't see any difference between countries like those, and countries like Norway, Canada, New Zealand...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

So where do you live then? North Korea? Afghanistan? North Korea is Socialist. It's a totalitarian dictatorship. I do realise that you have caught the idiocrity bug that originated in the US, whereby everything is either 'commie' or 'other', but the world is actually a whole lot more complex than t...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

But empirically, no version that has ever been tried so far in the real world, when allowed to run the economy and organize the political structure, has ever resulted in anything other than economic collapse, tyranny and murder, sot they've got that in common, too. So presumably you are including y...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

Define 'socialism' Heh. :D Is your Google broken? You don't even know what it is? Do you want me to give you some lovely sections from Das Kapital ? I have it right here... Or do you just want to look at every country that has ever tried any brand of Socialism, and see where they are right now? Or ...

The hard evidence for these things is dubious at best... 100 million dead is a low estimate, involving not even all of the known cases . It's the BEST it gets. :shock: It's almost certainly true that Socialism killed far more in the last century. We don't know precisely how many more, but more. Def...

Re: Racial Alternatives

Racial Alternatives There is a simple question that needs answering. What are the four alternative forms of society or non-society, that relate to culture and race. The one I'm in favor of is "how about everyone stop thinking about anything in terms of race"? They essentially have. 'Culture and rel...
