Except that “teaching” would be “you should try looking up this, here are a few good sites I trust as info sources.”

What you’re doing (considering that all the well-known search engines are compromised) is seeing a guy ask you for a fish, and responding by telling them to go ask the starving wolves to help them find one. And you somehow imagine that that will turn out okay.

I would argue that if you’re the one bringing up the subject, it is your responsibility to have some information. Imagine literally any exchange that isn’t in an online forum.

“Oh, hey, did you see that cool exhibit in the museum?”

“No, what’s it about?”

“Fuck you, look it up.”

——

“Hey, you should be careful if you’re going downtown today.”

“Why?”

“Not my job, asshole.”

——

“Did you hear about the new announcement?”

“No, what?”

“Too fucking bad.”

——

It’s obviously retarded behavior in any other context—so why is it acceptable in this one? What’s even worse is when memes like these claim to be talking about some massive, vitally important, hushed up conspiracy (in this case, Bohemian Grove), but someone asks and gets a dumbass response like yours.

Really, you’re gonna allege that there’s a huge scandal, with an attending huge coverup, then send people out with no help? If they do look up “government elites worshiping owl” what do you think they’ll find? I’ll tell you—half a dozen articles twisting words and claims to explain it away.

No wonder the “normies” don’t know about these things, or think they’re crazy—because whenever someone asks, assholes like you tell them to go ask the enemy! You’re surrendering to the opposition’s narrative without even fighting!

They went along because they were victims of one of the most aggressive misinformation campaigns in history.

I guarantee you, no one took that shot unless they had been lied to about the risks.

This person seems to be forgetting that they also aggressively censored and attempted to discredit any and all information about reasons to not take the vax.

Informed consent requires information.

Fuck it, good. Let any athletes who want to go pretend China is better than the US go do that while no one shows up to broadcast or watch them.

I do feel bad for the athletes who just want a shot at competing for the top honor in their sport, though. It's been thoroughly ruined, but not yet completely regarded as such.

I put it under tyranny because it’s a tool to maintain their regime, but it can go either way.

Really, every crisis—including the economic one—could probably be recategorized as a subset of corruption or tyranny. You could even put tyranny as a result of corruption, maybe.

The border crisis is mostly just a symptom of the tyranny crisis.

Yeah, but I always felt that that was obvious. Shouldn’t any religion, by definition, believe the others religions are wrong (and therefore usually sinful or some equivalent)? It just seems like common sense.

The part about non-Jews is bad, but the part about Jesus—while I don’t agree with it—doesn’t seem contextually unreasonable. After all, modern Judaism is predicated on the idea that Christ was not the promised messiah, which means that if you’re a (religious) Jew, you logically have to regard Christ as the single most egregious and most successful false prophet/heretic in history.

Now, I don’t believe that that is the case. But to say he’s suffering in hell is merely the reasonable conclusion of what Judaism requires you to believe. It’s not in itself any more of a moral failing than following any other non-Christian religion or being an atheist. (Of course, depending on who you ask, those are quite severe issues indeed).

I left a job that was technically a federal contractor because they had a New Years deadline due to this mandate since it was originally supposed to go into effect much earlier. For me, that wasn’t a huge problem; they gave everyone plenty of advance notice, so I had plenty of time to go interviewing. I left on good terms with them, got a strong recommendation, and started a better job within a week of leaving.

Plenty of other people, I’m sure, already buckled or have left or lost their jobs without much of a backup plan, because this mandate encouraged people to meet a deadline that has already passed. This halting of it is good, but also too little, too late.

I like that they couldn’t figure out another way to fix it.

I feel like that’s probably a combination of optical illusion/his body deteriorating rapidly/whatever medical stuff they’re doing to keep him alive. The issue with the idea of a body double is, why does he keep falling down AF1 stairs, spacing out weirdly for 30 seconds on CNN, shitting his pants with the Pope, etc. Is the body double also extremely unhealthy? What’s the point of that?

“Useless” is kind. “Actively harmful” is more accurate.

Technically, I think that was the old government. Hasn’t the new one actually indicted people over this, and indicted (or wants to question) Biden himself about corruption? I remember seeing articles here to that effect a while back, but admit that I haven’t really followed up on them to see how much was empty hype.

Of course, I don’t really want to get into a war over Ukraine regardless, I don’t think that that’s within America’s interest or responsibility, but credit where it’s due.

In terms of how efficiently and totally he’s been attacking America from within, maybe. Maybe.

To be fair, teens are kinda stupid. I mean, so are 20 y/os, but at least it’s a bit better and like you’re saying, there’s only so long you can put things off. Courting at 13-ish+ with older men can work, but requires much more involvement by the parents in choosing the suitors. Since arranged and semi-arranged marriage have fallen out of favor, 18 is basically the compromise solution.

It would be interesting to see long-term happiness data with arranged vs. unarranged marriage, but I’m not sure such data really exists in useful form. Also, on principle, I prefer to have more choice in spouse, but I’ll admit that that could be mostly culturally conditioned.

That’s true. I forgot about reddit‘s bot issue—it’s something like 70% of accounts, right?

Still, maybe I’m underestimating, but this seems too unhinged, across too many consistent narratives about their absurd life and political takes, to be a bot.

I’ve even had people get tilted about that here, although they could have been shills triggered into breaking cover, I suppose.

Because the propaganda is very, very strong if you don’t have the right lifeline.

Some bluepilled people, the ones who talk about killing republicans, straights, unvaxxed, whatever... I have no sympathy for them. But it’s important to remember that there are still a lot of people that are basically decent, and have no idea they’re living within a completely manufactured reality.

For them, I am very sorry indeed.
