Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
@redpillschool this is a classic right-wing argument that had me thinking. I am on the fence about it. My main objection is that although there is material affluence, (even for the plebes, one could argue), there is extreme sexual repression for the majority of men. This is enough to offset every other provision.
@adam-l Regardless of the implications of our losses of liberty, as far as life for the serfs has never been better. Yes, we operate in a system where redistribution of wealth wholesale hurts the lower and middle classes, we operate around 15-30% of our working lives as slave laborers in that context.
But, we have plenty of food, moderately accessible healthcare (even if it's financially destructive), and big televisions to entertain us.
If you decide to tune out on what's happening, you can live comfortably. Better than what you can say for any other era in history.
@Fawk_Face I'm using the term psychopath and sociopath somewhat interchangeably here. Mathmatically, if every elected official in DC were a psycho/sociopath it would still be such a small percentage of the gen pop that I don't think it's that unlikely or improbable.
They're not all pysopaths.
Mathematically thats impossible.
High level sociopaths, sure.
A sociopath is someone who had the ability of empathy but losses it, or it is damaged.
A psychopath is an individual who never was born with the ability with empathy.
But Most people in this world are sociopathic to some level imo.
@adam-l That's the problem, and it's one we're watching play out in real time with the establishment. No fear of reprisal. The ability to tell a complete lie with a straight face, even if you said 100% the opposite moments before, it's something most people are unable to do and manage for any length of time. It is the behavior of psychopaths.
All power structures will eventually be overrun by psychopaths because the fight between those with consciences vs those without will always favor those without.
It's the reason why even today, after watching the steal, most people won't rise up against the tyranny because most worry about repercussions. Most worry what will happen to them if they cross the line.
Meanwhile, one team has made sport of crossing the line and swooping up anybody who retaliates. It's a blood sport and one that only a certain personality type can win.Read More
@adam-l It's scary to think up until the point where he began genocide, he was a politician and author and was simply circulated through the political spheres like anybody today.
Makes you wonder, who is in leadership today just waiting to become the next Hitler.
I have some ideas. It's not who the media says.
