There is something really fucking fake about modern day interviews and talk shows and media communicate. TED talks, for instance, though essentially touching on fairly interesting themes, I find profoundly irritating for that reason. Like they are adressing 5-year-olds or something.

I can't quite put my finger on what it is... but it seems to me like all public speakers nowadays are using a certain language pattern made to persuade (stressing this and that, strategic use of keywords, standard answers in Q&A's, etc.) These techniques probably stems from the commercial spheres, but it's really really sad to see that it's now apparently everywhere.

Antifa is just another stupid political label for "anyone who disagrees with my right wing views".

Just ask yourself: Who is the head of antifa? Nobody. It isn't a group. It cannot be labelled a terrorist organisation, and jesus fucking christ what is happening in the white house for that to even be considered.

This applies to the alt-right, too. There is no entity or organisation that the alt-right are part of. It's just a general label for the sake of assigning political affiliation to a large group of people. But there's one key difference: The highest office in the land is not attempting to label the alt-right as terrorists.

Honestly it fucking flabbergasts me, to think that antifa have been mooted as a potential new Public Enemy #1. What the actual fuck. I know I'm behind on this news, but it's only just now occurred to me how fucking scary this is. The white house labeling a random political label (one that happens to typically oppose Republican ideology) as "terrorists". Jesus, fucking, christ.
Nah ... Bro , organizations hiding behind peoples problems and using them to reach "theirs" goals for politicals meanings is a very real thing.
I guess... if we still think that the extremism left are not just more than a bunch of bullshit we just need to read a little of history and study the circle in which they move today to get an idea.

But as it stands right now, it's just the apolitical tinpot wannabe dictator of the USA's attack puppet because it's an easy one for him to rally his dumb supporters with.

As for history and the extreme left, I think you're using very hysterical terms there, and have frankly been won over by the rhetoric of the right wing machine. As it stands, the USA (and UK for me) has shifted dramatically to the right, and things are slowly being peppered with ingredients straight out of "Hitler's rise to power". And no, I am not saying we are being ruled by modern Hitlers, but I am saying we're living in what is quite clearly the standard sequence of events that lead to tyranny. Poor economy, unhappy society, a rush for populism, blaming the media or the "other" for problems the government is supposed to deal with, and now we have Trump attempting to label some vague concept of an opposition movement as terrorists.

It really fucking annoys me when people say "yeah but the left" or "yeah but the media". Just fucking look how politically right wing everything is, and that trend has only increased over the last decade or so. When people cry about "the left", they're just suckers for whatever spiel the blatantly right wing state machine has concocted for them.

Jesus Christ isn't a cuss word. Please, please don't use it that way. I've asked politely.
...... um. Politely, how about no. I'll say whatever the fuck I like, and Jesus Christ the false idol can suck on my balls. The way I used the phrase 'jesus christ' has been part of the English lexicon for decades, if not centuries, and I take great exception to you dictating to me, personally, how I should use the term just so you can feel somehow more comfortable in the religion you use to mask the realities of the life you lead. Jesus isn't important and there is zero proven evidence pointing toward the existence of a god or "god's will". You and I are the same and nothing will change upon our death. You are wasting your time and I will not stand for such policing of my utterly harmless words.

I don't think i'm hysterical but i'm from sudamerica which it had a long history of extremist organizations trying to
destabilize differents aspect of society and i'm pretty sure in U.s. there is alot of them using demagogy to get people protection but for sure ...always when the state create laws to control something is gonna fuck something else , innocent organizations are gonna be fuck but those aren't the majority .

I think you are right in you other point , U.s. isn't going to the paradise or the biggest economy of world ( wall street, politicians , corporations , banks and speculators got all of those numbers/"money" which trump was talking about ).

Well , right or left are so rape in U.s. culture .... Calling social lefty democrats "Liberals" ( which is an aberration ) and Republicans right-wing.

How can we not say that the media aren't problem ... trash tv was a big problem in U.s. and they exported that to the rest of the world ( Trash internet is just the next step ).

Of course .... U.s. is going to use some totalitarism form of government , for every wars you fought you lost more freedom and gave to the state (political corporation ), federals and banks lot more power. which is totally anti constitutional but who gave a fuck?.

Now... you are asking to the same institutions to fix the problem of the people xD. They can't , first 'cause economical growing is the only way human kind knows how to fix social problems ... if you can't grow you just use stupid concepts as steal money from the rich and use the "state" to pay it ( the state do not produce nothing they use taxes which is stealing money from some people to give it to anothers ).

Religions always had some occultism background ... western cultures were so dumb to actually creating a interpretation of that , which do not follow any of what ancient cultures really thought.

Jesus teaching's as a human being are one of the most significant self-growth aspect in all our history ( name someone who is still in his level after 2000 years ).

I am not an expert in psychology but Carl Jung attributed his greatest thoughts to the occult.

And if you don't use this language, most of the general population doesn't listen to you either. Makes sense what you're saying.

"Taxation is theft" is the weakest argument people make. To be honest, I don't even know what the point of such a statement is.

Someone on Instagram was following the libertarian candidate, so I took a look. They are basically good with memes.

The response to, “How are we going to pay for x without taxes?” is, “I can’t believe you can’t imagine doing that without taxes.” Which is an just an expression of incredulity, not an answer to the question.

There’s also a lot of random stuff that they can say regardless of what is happening in the world like, “I’m gonna bring the troops home. I’m gonna erase laws that are against the 2nd amendment.”


In other news, my dad wanted to watch the Trump rally so he put on Fox News. I bet him they weren’t even showing it on the other channels. CNN was literally showing a zoomed out video of the entire place saying that, “There are fewer people here than expected.” One could not even hear the audio of what Trump was saying.

How is this news? I feel like even if every word he says is a lie, he should be allowed to speak publicly. Go fact check in a post-rally segment, and put it online like usual. But what is that? The president is giving a speech, let’s not even have audio, and just show talking heads discussing how parts of the stadium are empty. It’s so stupid. There were are also a couple of people in the crowd wearing masks, but finding them was like playing Where’s Waldo?

Yeah I agree, that's very silly.

As for the taxes thing, it honestly really annoys me how many people think that life would all be hunky dory if taxes just ceased to be a thing. As if they really think they'd be able to find a better way to efficiently fund the upkeep of society as we know it. I mean, pretty much every nation ON EARTH has a system of taxation, it's pretty much a given trait exhibited by all highly evolved and complex societies.

The best example of a true anarchistic utopia is Somalia. It was a new nation with little to no government, with ample room for free investment, development and market-based growth, the way the tax haters and free marketeers champion. But what did Somalia give us in the end? Fucking pirates.

Experience is such a BS reason for not retaining a candidate after several rounds deep in the selection process.
It's a 'hard criteria,' meaning they can read it from a person's CV or other concrete data. So giving me the "we are in need for someone with more experience in managing localization teams" blablablablabalalalablabalalaa is just the chicken way out of telling me they think I'm too much of a fucked up personality for the job. So fuck them and all the others who gave me that crap over the years.

I heard they tried to make their own islands to live on but then they were destroyed by natural disasters. I'm kind of wondering why bother if they completely lose connection with the rest of society? They might as well go live in the forest and forgo materialism like the good old days.

Well, it wasn't so bad. They seem to have a government again only after 20 years.

I like how Friedman made it so easy to understand , the best way to spend money :

1) Spend your own money on yourself. ( the optimal way )
2) Spend your own money on somebody else.
3) Spend somebody else’s money on yourself.
4) Spend somebody else’s money on somebody else. ( The worst way )

Using those simple concepts is really easy to see why social organizations, politicians , gorvenments ( right or left ) , international organizations , ect ... are just a total waste of resources Not only they use ( 3 and 4 ) but they use debt and inflation ( which is a taxation without legislation ) to take freedom from you and future generations. Another example are U.s. universities ... the state subsidizes them ( Using 3 and 4 again ) but they just made them extremely expensive.

It's easy to talk how socialism and progresism is a great thing but in reality those are alot more immoral than capitalism . The only way the economic theory found how to reduce the difference between poors and riches is growing which you only can do by saving and investing ( 70% of the americans have less than $1000 in saving , where that money goes ? ) . Making those terrible socials laws which using eloquent rhetoric that seems like the next step of human spiritualism are just a bunch of non sense.

How do you live without taxes ? First ... anarchism is not possible today , probabily we need the superman as the Nietzsche said .
Second there is alot evidence in which the private sector is/was succesful and totally superior ( sweeden anyone ? ).
You can always " pay something similar to taxes " but actually getting the benefits of your money ( Pensions , educations , health ,ect )

We need to be careful about this taxes concept ... In theory sounds like the eden in the colectivist human being but in reality it was just a tool for some elites to control masses and steal their power and freedom with stupid politics ideas.

That day i was drunk xDD ... But i'm not gonna edit it 'cause actually It's not that easy for me to write about abstract concepts using english but at least i'm trying to get better at ( thanks to here and other peoples which make me think in other languages xd)

My point was that almost every religion right now . it had an occultism background which the christian institutions tried to hide and they went so far to even "witch hound" for that . it's gets pretty mind blowing when symbols which now seem religious but in reality if we use ancient knowledge it was all about self-growth and psychology.

I mean concepts as the trinity , the sun , the moon , the shadow , the heroe path, ect... all of them were individual self-growth concepts but religions raped the real idea and made them a black/white ideology.

I'm not an expert but some concepts as jesus said : teach how to catch fishes not giving to them .
It's actually such strong idea in how we should to adopt this "modern" social-economical problems....

I don't know bro... Most people are just empty inside and they are just trying to find a meaning or justification in colectivist ideologies , for me that just is sad.

America is the most unequal western society on the planet. It's also the most capitalistic and has a strong aversion to socialist thought.

Without collectivism we're nothing! Every great society that has ever existed has been a result of massive collective human effort. Society always fails when people stop caring about each other or their wider community (regardless of whether its's right or left wing politics pinning everything together).

Well ... Using the index of economic freedom Index of Economic Freedom: Promoting Economic Opportunity and Prosperity by Country U.s. isn't not even top 10 in the world .
Its strongest points are labor freedom, business freedom, and trade freedom. Its weakest points are its massive government spending and poor fiscal health It's also weak in its tax burden that restricts taxpayer freedom.

So no... U.s. is not the most capitalistic country in the world , basically the fiscal sector in U.s. is just a monster which just consume the real wealth to do whatever they want ... this graph just show how gorvernments ( all of them ) and the federals stole from you using inflation ( taxation without legislation ) and demagogy ( wars , social programs , health programs , educations programs , politicians , fiscal sectors , ect ). Do you expect you are gonna to solve anything giving to people everything they want ?.... who is gonna pay that ?.

The sum of individuals is what makes societies ... similar to the sum of individual economic interactions makes the economy.

This collectivism not sense is just what made the worse dictatorships in history , Why i use the term socialism for almost any pro-progresist group , governments , global instituions ,ect. out there 'cause it's easy to talk about a better world using others money and they are even willing to use the monopoly of the force to protect their ideology and they take resources from the people and makes them alot more poorer .

Haha that sounds a lot like capitalism to me! Free markets is the general term, I believe.

The fact that the USA has low economic freedom is not proof that it isn't capitalist, it's proof that the diehard capitalist model doesn't work. It just produces countries like America, where money does all the talking.

Massive (and corrupt) government spending is a sign of a broken culture, usually caused by inequality or social division. Some good examples I can think of are America, India, or pre-90s China; all in situations where there is massive inequality and everyone is out to get what they can.
