No child can control what their parents do. However they should absolutely recognize that being a "shitty parent" is shameful and has bad consequences. They should also recognize that being a good parent is virtuous and has good consequences. Being virtuous doesn't just help you, it helps your family, community, state, and nation.

The problem is we can't make judgements, even if we have objective repeatable evidence of the consequences, because that might make people that do bad things feel bad. So, (white) society is to blame when individuals act irresponsibly.

Morality, self-restraint, responsibility, and duty will never sell. Judgement makes feels bad. Doing things you don't want to do is hard. Shame feels bad. Shamelessness, irresponsibly, blaming others, and hedonism always sells.

This paper dances around the elephant in the room. I'm at a loss to understand how they can see the evidence that family stability, integration, and following established norms are important to a society, and somehow deny their virtue and twist duty into privilege.

The MSM's go to is Tucker because they don't want give directions to locations where open discussion occurs and redpills are freely distributed. That's why I believe 4chan will be out of the news very quickly. If they are mentioned, they're always described as off-the-edge-of-the-world-far-right-nazi.

Sounds like an oversight. You need a Beretta 950 Jetfire.

I believe that, but I also truly believe these people can't form a thought or hold an opinion without consulting an authoritative expert.

What type of guy doesn't have at least one gun? According to Pew, it looks like democrats and urbanites. Weird that areas with lower overall rates of firearms ownership have more shootings.

It is just a regular condom with a new approved indication on the box. Most doctors would advise not put anything in the butt. The rest know that's the correct answer, but are faggots.

The FBI has been a grievous enemy of the people since its inception. It can not be reformed or redeemed. A secret police force is antithetical to our Republic.

Self restraint and self control is inconceivable in modern America. The culture has moved toward moral subjectivism, consumption and hedonism. "Do what you wilt" does not care if a desire is healthy (physically, mentally, or spiritually).

Am I correct in thinking this means unconstitutional administrative law is basically null in the 5th circuit's jurisdiction, pending a few more lawsuits and SCOTUS appeal?

Eh, if you were still doing pretty well if you consider the past 2-3 years. Anyone that bought in in the past 6 months was a fool. Between inflation, the signaling of the Fed, and crazy fundamental analysis figures, it was obvious we had topped out. Anyone that thought they could time it perfectly and squeeze out those last few cents of profit was insane.

Blaming white people for their own problems might free them from introspection, but it doesn't actually solve those problems. And, the freedom from personal responsibility and self-determination perpetuates them. You may be wronged or get the short end of the stick, but can't blame your way out of your problem.

This idea didn't die, it has existed and continues to exists, at least informally. Traditional and social media, search engine, transactional, and financial controls are undoubtedly coordinated. There may not be an official propaganda and social credit bureau, but it is obvious that one exists.

They're not going to create an actual office that might open this operation to review. Its official non-existence and operation through supposedly private, independent, entities is exactly what makes it so powerful.

Biden keeps putting diversity hires in spotlight positions and giving them sisyphean tasks. As a result, even if they are competent they come off as being incompetent (even to his supporters). This seems like an anti-strategy on all fronts.

On a deeper level, transhumanism is humans adapting themselves to the machine rather than adapting the machine to man. Cyberpunk Dystopia here we come

They can attempt to do anything. More than their purse strings, law enforcement and military powers, the government relies on compliance. Your voluntary compliance to their orders is their primary power. They simply don't have the manpower and time to force everyone to comply all the time.

The more public noncompliance is exercised, the more it becomes obvious that compliance is voluntary. This can be on multiple levels, from the individual up to states and nations.

"No. Make me." backed with killing the people that try to make you is every rebellion in a nutshell. You win when they stop trying to make you. It is the oldest most effective way of settling disagreements.

You can put down whatever sex and race you want. There is no objective legal test, so put down what is most advantageous to you. Keep documentation, record interactions,if they have a problem sue them for discrimination. Clown world absolutely hates it when you honk back.

Therapy is nearly useless for actually treating mental illness besides mild depression, anxiety, and phobia. The first typically spontaneously resolves anyway, the second are learned responses. And, even for those few illnesses where therapy is productive for, you have to have a good therapist who will actually do the work. Talking about it is going to do jack.

For the rest, the good therapist's job is basically a glorified social worker who tries to help you sort out living with mental illness (many are technically social workers). They also provide a "between visit" monitoring of condition and compliance with psychiatrist visits and medication, relieving the work of the actual psychiatrist. They often have a better/closer relationship with the patient than the psychiatrist so they can hopefully refer for intervention before things get truly bad.

Except for the conditions I mentioned earlier (and you really want to see a PhD clinical psychologist for anxiety/phobia), psychiatric medications are the only things empirically proven to actually work. And honestly the medications work for some things and even then only sometimes for somepeople and typically partially. They will also drug the shit out of you and say being a walking compliant zombie is better than being off-the-wall psychotic.

On the other side, there are therapists that will keep making appointments to just sit and talk, week after week, month after month, as long as you will keep paying them. If you do not have severe mental illness, and therapist has no plan of action, no actionable goal, makes no preparation for your meeting, but always wants to make that next appointment, they're absolutely using you for money.

The "right wing" values/cultural/Christian conservatives never actually censored anything. They made plenty of noise but lost every battle in the culture war they fought. It got them lots of money and votes. The GOP has been playing the same game for decades. They took Trump "teaching them to win" as a threat to their very core.

Besides Jack, the board holds very little Twitter stock. I suspect they're trying very hard to insulate themselves from management so they can claim they were fooled just like everyone else.

They're probably praying Musk is put off and then they can pretend do their own audit. I think Musk went in knowing where the bodies are buried and they can't hide fraud behind an NDA.

I'm fairly convinced Twitter was a propaganda company under the hood and most of Twitter's R&D budget was dedicated to developing ways to make hype and suppression appear organic, and serving as a listening post for when certain terms might begin to appear together and allow companies/governments to get ahead of whatever was breaking. This was no doubt used for both public and private posts.
