I was going to say, 64 still seemed like a lot.

The biggest problem with the United States is privilege. When you're on top and you don't remind your children how you got there and how to stay there. They don't even think about things that everyone else has to think about. The communists still have to think about how to fight the United States, but all the children in the United States didn't. Once all the grown ups died, the children were still living in their walled garden of ignorance, while they play with privileged ideas like utopias, inclusion, even the American way. Never realizing the entire world was in a war with the United States that never ended for them, but didn't even exist for the children. All these progressives do have a point, that we should have been paying attention to them the whole time.

I find it highly amusing the types of concepts that we here don't believe in, yet still latch on to "their" idea of things. It's ingrained into the fabric of our beings, and it's interesting how people can't let go.

If you've ever been in a room where power or money is involved, even on a tiny level, you know that people conspire like motherfuckers. Rich, powerful people trying to make you seem crazy thinking they might be plotting is pretty fucking silly.

There's no such thing as grassroots. All things are organized and being paid for. That's how life works.

Should we demand reparations for freeing them and losing all those white lives to do so?

The uneducated pay for the education of the educated or rather, the poor people pay for the rich people's education. How interesting is that.

I like birthing people. It's hilarious. Can men get Seed people?

Not only that, but you have to disrupt the current power that are in those positions to obtain and leverage that power. It's not really that hard. They did it without any effort.

The party's not the problem, it's the people in power in the party.

Information overload. How many of these fucktards aren't running scams? Which project are you going to dedicate your life to maybe destroying one of those assholes? It's just so much corruption and fraud, it's overwhelming.

We don't need to learn a fucking lesson retard. The fucking disconnect here. If there was any time in history for a President to manhandle states for how they were treating their citizens this was it.

We're not. It's a distraction. For what though, that's the question. Pretty big pretend play though.

When I say we have an autist problem in the United States, this is what I mean. It's the face value, surface level thinkers, that don't understand and sublevels, subtext, context, etc.

They are incapable of looking at anything other than what's directly in front of them. Of course, some simple minded idiot doesn't understand the underlying purpose of these things and believes that the people who do understand the underlying levels, don't. That they're only capable of seeing the surface level of it, and blindingly believe in it because, whatever or something.

It's like religion, even as an agnostic atheist, I understand you don't want to throw the religious baby out with the dogmatic bathwater. Tone down the dogma, and keep the shit that's kept society together for millennia.

Are they lying? Probably, but definitely not most of them.

She's literally a Chinese asset and look at all the positions of power she's held. Crazy.

This is not a real solution. This is a system problem, not an individual problem. If you want to stop people from buying Chinese bullshit, then gain the power of the positions that make those decisions or gain the power that can make a successful attack. This isn't a half-assed, sitting in your house problem. This is dedicating your life problem.

I use to fight skinheads back in the day. We were always running into skinheads, because if you're going to a Reverend Horton Heat concert, so were the skinheads. In reality, especially when you got them alone, you'd get to have conversations with them. The reasons they were skinheads was always because some black guy beat them up once. Which makes sense given the gang problems at the time. Not for any American reason. Confused teenagers and 20 somethings never know shit about anything, we shouldn't pretend like they do.

Now the people selling them the bill of goods may be different, but I never ran into those people.

They are the definition of "toxic males", they just think they found a loophole.

This is an important part of the conversation, because there is culture that's neutral and culture that's potentially in opposition to other cultures.

For example, Asian countries for the most part have a communal structure that bows to authority (family, government, etc). Where as Western countries, and in particular the United States, has an individualist structure. Even their religion (communal) was a restructuring of another religion to introduce individualism (Jesus).

Now the question we should be asking ourselves is, not why they eat bread and they eat rice. It's a question of why that particular piece of culture exists and how it integrates into their culture as a complete system.

With bread and rice, it may simply be a matter of historical access. Where as something like their view on the second amendment might be different because one sees them founding fathers as a part of their history, and someone else, who was maybe even born here, but their parents come from a country that doesn't think citizens should own guns.

When someone's eating flan, the question isn't whether they're eating flan, whether it's good or not. It's how it's a part of their cultural system that props up their foundational beliefs. Which you should understand to know if those beliefs are in indirect or direct opposition.

We could all be best friends with anyone in the world. Hang out all day, have the best time ever. Until you give one of them power.

Thinking that it doesn't matter or not even having to think about it at all is a privilege of decadence and sheltered power.

People will do what's in their self interest with the opportunity provided. They do it because we let them while they're being told it's okay.

The same way they did it. Organizing on a local level with micro campaigns that worked towards the macro goals to disrupt, obtain and leverage power.

The media isn't real. It's an abstraction with unearned merit. If we were to use the people's names and the groups they associate with, we wouldn't even give them the time of day.
