better, healthier and more empathetic lives

You just can't stop telling the world how morally superior you are. That's why vegans get such pushback: their self-perceived moral superiority enables them to scorn others, and when those others scorn back, it is received with genuine outrage. How dare the peasants criticize the nobility? Dirty deplorables!

I thought that was the noblest thing an academic could do. They told us so. It's one reason that academics have such high standing in our society - they're willing to give up a great deal to stand for Truth.

I like how Saidit feels like a big community. You get used to seeing a lot of familiar names and interaction between the same people on different posts. You even see the founders of this website in threads daily. It really feels unique. by Wrang1er in whatever

It's important to try to uphold your ideals, even if you don't always succeed. If you fail, get right back on that horse and try again. That is what is important in life.

If they hadn't gotten on the horse to try again, they would have just aborted you and you would have been parted out by Planned Parenthood for cash. Instead you got to be an insufferable jerk to the people who saved your life.

THIS IS NOT GOOD: In May Reports Came Out that Bill Clinton Dated Ghislaine Maxwell – Now She’s Under Arrest – What Next? by P-38lightning in news

He's still relevant. The media could have burst out the Epstein story in 2015 and saved a lot of children from being raped. But they didn't, because Bill Clinton was implicated. Everyone knew Hillary was going to rig the Democratic nomination in 2016 and she'd go up against Jeb Bush or some other RINO and win. So they buried the story, were complicit in the rape of children, and got away with it until Project Veritas broke the story and let the world know the truth.

There is still a non-zero chance that Hillary will maneuver behind the scenes to get the Democrat nomination this year. Don't think she ain't trying.

Isn't it ironic that feminists, who freely use censorship, got censored? And once that happened, they made a beeline for a free speech platform, the kind that they regularly disparaged? Oh, the thick, rich irony.

Lots of people don't give a crap about posting on sites. There are a bunch of sites I read with comment sections, and I'm just not interested in what they have to say. I rarely look, and definitely don't go to the trouble of creating an account to post.

Some are dumpster fires of posters, some are hugboxes where people go to get their hit of social approval, some are uninteresting, some are full of spam, you name it. There are lots of good reasons why people don't register or post.

What Reddit bullshit you've encountered? by cloudrabbit in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]Chipit 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Lots of people use Reddit as a kind of therapy. They can't get the feelings they want in their real life, so they turn to the internet to have a hugbox. Seen it so many places. They're not actually there to get an honest opinion. Their skill doesn't matter. They want to bask in the warm glow of approval.

The problem with this is that it seems to build on itself and make people more fragile. The more warm feelings they get, the more hostile they are to any dissent. It's Agreeability and conformity gone mad.

The most frightening thing is how they are 100% in favor of censorship. Like, not even any debate. We have such a negative view of censorship because it doesn't work. It was tried and found wanting. Not being able to discuss the truth was one of the major reasons the Soviet Union fell. Having learned nothing (because it wasn't real socialism) and having cut themselves off from the corpus of Western literature (which is full of "we tried this and here's how it didn't work" lessons) they are now boldly striding forward into the past to repeat actions we know for a fact are mistakes.

Cite which specific sentence was racist. I've reviewed the comment chain and I don't see anything. I do see a lot of unconscious bigoted classism on your part, though, assuming the working class are just like you and can jet off to another country on a whim and get a job at the drop of a hat.

Lots of people like home, they don't like going anywhere else, and for you to be unaware of this smacks of being uneducated. Something I know isn't true, so what the hell? How do you not have empathy for the little people?

"She" isn't a generic, which you also obviously knew.

Sure it is. She is in use as a generic pronoun, and this happened quite some time ago.

have literally zero idea what I'd do.

Sure, I have a very good idea what you'd do. Hard left types always censor, it's their go-to move. It's as predictable as Republicans lowering taxes.

BLM doesn't hold any territory, and isn't interested in "holding territory".

[citation needed]

What do you call the territory in Seattle they seized? "Now leaving the USA" stated the border control signs.

This is an invasion of Crips territory. Which BLM/Antifa clearly knew before going in.

BLM is not a gang.

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.

If you like, you can call it a revolutionary organization. Same thing, really. Warlordism is what happens when the state loses its monopoly on violence (c.f. the war on police). The results are always horrible for everyone, and the people at the bottom of society get hit the hardest. It's true in Somalia or any other shithole country that this happens in, and now it's happening here.

Ah, but would you if you had the power to do so? My experience says a resounding "yes".

an opinion. A bad one, at that.

OK, can you make the case this is not two gangs fighting over territory? As happens in Somalia and similar places where law and order has broken down? I mean, a descent into warlordism is the classic scenario in this case. It's not like this is the first time this has happened.

What working class jobs? There aren't any jobs for working class people in Portugal. Besides, who wants to leave house and home, and live in some weird foreign country where they don't speak English and the food smells funny?

YOU love doing these things. You don't speak for the people. You make the mistake of thinking you do, when all you're doing is making class warfare against the people who are hurting the most.

I’m really sorry you’re so angry at the world

There it is again. A refusal to take the argument seriously and dismiss it as some sort of irrational response. Angry at the world, give me a break. It's obvious that EU membership isn't just not in the interest of the people of the UK, it's not in the interest of a lot of the people of the EU, too. Do you think the selection of Von Der Leyen was the behaviour of a transparent, fair and accountable democracy? I don't, I think it disgraces the whole institution. It was what we'd expect from China or other pseudo-democracies.

Honestly all levels of class use the freedom of movement and you do know that’s true but are pretending it’s not.

What? That's not true at all. Working class don't use it; it's useless. It's like getting a tax break if you own stocks - worthless to the working class.

Brexit is only going to remove opportunities for the British

For YOU, do you understand? It is going to remove opportunities for YOU and your fellow sneering classist bigots. That you cannot understand that others see the world differently than you - isn't that the whole point of being "educated"? For the working class, it's going to mean less competition for jobs and higher wages as employers must improve conditions or go without.

Always! I never understood it until a few years ago an insightful gentleman sat me down and explained that there are people out there who are just not happy unless they are unhappy, or better yet they are spreading their unhappiness to others. That's how they get fulfillment out of life and that's what they like to do. Once I got it suddenly things made a great deal more sense.

If they actually hated us, they'd avoid using our sites. But they're not interested in that - they want to spread unhappiness. And if that sounds small, petty, and pathetic to you - you're absolutely right. But that's the world we live in. We were better off being disconnected from one another and living in our own countries.

It's not far right, but that sure is an easy slur to sling to avoid thinking about the causes of Brexit.

The working class never uses the "freedom of movement" and yet the upper middle class does. When the working class votes in its interest, the upper middle class is absolutely outraged and unleashes a torrent of bigoted, classist abuse as we all saw. You punch up, not down, and yet there were educated people with Ph.Ds shitting all over the little people in a fury of spite.

Don't bother - the rest of the world is resentful and angry at America because they only ever hear bad news.

Most of them are not properly educated on how much they depend on the US. The US is almost exclusively depicted in a negative way and blamed for stuff, while the US is almost never depicted in a positive way and given its due credit. A lot of them directly link their view of their own individual countries to their view of the US as a point of contrast. Because they see things along those lines, and because they want to depict themselves as being superior to the US, they must as a matter of necessity see the US in an unrealistically negative way.

A lot of hate they have for the US is not only a product of their ignorance of their dependence on the US, it's also because of their dependence on the US. They take the US for granted and many of those that are aware of their dependence on the US still hate the US because playing second fiddle to the US stings their pride.

What makes more sense: A cop unit tasked with stopping specfic type of crime is disbanded at the demand of anti-cop protesters. That kind of crime then skyrockets.

  1. There have been high-profile, high-tension protests going on for weeks, so violence has been higher recently.

I don't follow. Why would violence be higher recently? Police have been scaling back their efforts, and police are the primary cause of violence. So the violence should be greatly decreasing, not increasing. You're arguing against yourself, and losing.

Violence is highly seasonal, and can be directly correlated to things like the outside temperature. That's why crime is compared to what happened the previous year. This is well-known; you're telling me this is news to you?

These are the same NYC cops who, when everyone was running away from the flaming World Trade Center, ran towards it. Why am I not surprised they're being shit on?

So did you just pretend that didn't happen and re-promote us to first world status just so you could take a big shit on us again?

This kind of garbage is why nobody in America cares, or even cares to know, what the rest of the world thinks.

Yeah, why even bother with democracy if you're just going to do the vote over until it yields a result pleasing to the ruling class. The EU's withering contempt for democracy is a major reason the UK left in the first place.

You sound like you carry some guilt around eating animal products and are extremely insecure when confronted with vegans who - in your own words - are morally superior.

LOL no. I love meat, and would raise, kill and butcher my own meat if it were in the least bit plausible.

They informed themselves on the subjects of factory farming, climate change and the ethics of eating sentient beings and made a tough but much needed change in their lives & on the other hand there's you who clearly wouldn't be able to commit to such a change

Haha, there you go. Reciting chapter and verse about how you're so morally superior. So easily you begin the chant.

99% of the time vegans and vegetarians just keep to themselves and don't bring up their different lifestyle

The evidence doesn't support your assertion. You presented no citations in support of your argument. How do you tell if someone is a vegan? Don't worry, they'll tell you.

This was no "event". A US Ambassador was killed! This was huge and unprecedented!

And then they tried to blame it on an internet video. You'll notice this pattern: when elites make errors and people are killed, it is never their fault. There is always some midlevel or low-ranking nobody who is to blame. It happens all the time and once you notice it, you can't stop seeing it.

Can we create a disagree option? by AreYouSureee in help

No.

"I disagree" isn't an argument. If you have an argument to make, make it. If you can't make a coherent counter-argument...maybe you need to reconsider your beliefs.

Yeah, this is the new attack vector. If Visa and Mastercard cut you off from the financial system, how can you survive? You can't.

Anyone who says, "DURR BITCOIN" gets a cockpunch. Nobody knows how to use it, and it's full of scams.

Anything they did to Alex Jones, they're gonna do to everyone now. Just as predicted.

The full quote: "Women do not naturally want to be nothing more than baby makers, who cry and like pink glitter, who only care about adornment and home making. This is all a social construct."

She took a bunch of lies, mixed them with the truth, and called it all a lie. "Women naturally want to have children" becomes "nothing more than baby makers". This sort of dishonest argument is all over the place in feminism, and they get away with it because nobody is allowed to argue back.

Well, that's about to change, bigtime.

So, where can Americans find friendship? I notice you didn't answer that and brought up Turks instead.

Please direct me to where I can find kind words about America and Americans, written or spoken by Greeks. Yeah, it doesn't exist, we both know it.

Women do not naturally want to be nothing more than baby makers, who cry and like pink glitter, who only care about adornment and home making. This is all a social construct.

Well now that's a lie. Normal women want to have children, there's no doubt about that. The part about glitter is a dishonest argument, known as an absurd absolute.

An absurd absolute is a restatement of the other person's reasonable position as an absurd absolute. For example, if your point is there is high crime in Detroit, the absurd absolute would be your debate opponent saying something such as "So, you're saying every person in Detroit is a criminal." When your debate opponent recasts your opinion to include an "absolute" word, such as every, always, never, all, completely, universally, and the like, you are seeing cognitive dissonance.

Some people call what I just described a strawman argument. But a strawman argument refers to any sort of inaccurate recasting of your opponent's argument. That is the generic case. I'm referring to a specific strawman argument that uses an absurd absolute. When your debate opponent recasts your point as an absurd absolute, you won the debate. That's as far as you can go.

Of course normal women want to have children. Why else the withering hostility towards motherhood? This is the key:

"No woman should be authorized to stay at home to raise her children...because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one."

So MI5 paid an agent to help keep Italy from quitting the war? What's that supposed to mean? Mussolini's fascism grew directly out of socialism. And the problem with different kinds of socialism is that they can't all be correct. They have vicious infighting about who's the One True Socialism. Why do you think Germany and the USSR had such a vicious war? International socialism vs. national socialism. They couldn't both be right!

I haven't heard a kind word for years and years and years. Americans on holiday will lie and say they're Canadian just to avoid being verbally abused. Please direct me to this place of friendship for Americans, because to me it's as mythical as Stoval'Kor.
