Would make my life easier

Why can't you accept that your a racist?

Damn straight

You needed Tay to prove that for you did you?

Newfag question, what's the story behind the copy pastas?

I feel based should just come out and say what they really think

Some are canadian

World is overpopulated. Issue solved. Checkmate, atheists

What kinda evil do you need to be that the beach boys want to steal your shit?


@โœฟ Mittens โœฟ sure, but that's why punishment exists. To reshape those brains to getting back to "murder is wrong"

That's because the us prison system doesnt work. Period

Poor implementation =/= bad concept

But if you did things like Norway then you'd be a cuck

And i think everyone agrees the us prison system is shit, its just not a particularly easy thing to just "fix"

^ whats with that?

K. Seems cringey. But I'm new here so what the fuck do i know

Then go full shia and JUST DO IT

Don't let your memes be dreams

or idk you could stop bitching about infrastructure and do that 15min bike ride

you dont have those bike storage things?

then you got the best of both worlds

what im talking about is some people mod shipping containers or similar to act as secure storage for people coming into the city from public transport

but that doesnt seem to be your problem.

feeling entitled to a city without traffic seems to be the issue. which i dont know in what world that will be a thing

to each their own tho i guess

tell me a city without traffic problems and ill show you an exception to the rule

i get that, but work around that shit

if other people are stupid and drive straight into the city centre then you be the guy who takes the train and bikes

yeah but thats just a truism

gumby people will never stop whining

and mal you must live in a weird city that all the parking is at the centre

fair. heres hoping that shit gets fixed

hows parking there?

@franti so you're effectively enabling me being a piece of shit? cheers bro

true that

so really without me you wouldnt have food on your table. <:think_cartoon:378717098618388491>

re: the debate q
i think there should be a minimum wage but im not tied to the idea. the minimum wage effectively communicates an expectation that people should be working in such a way thats at least hitting that low bar which given the amount we invest in people doesnt seem unreasonable. I think that welfare as it seems to be implemented undermines how effective that is, however

2019-01-11 22:18:54 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

as for the second part whatever the value someone accepts for their work is what its worth

2019-01-11 22:36:30 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

i dont agree that special interests and "big business" control the govt and if that were true you would not see min-wage laws passed based on what your saying. otherwise spot on david but you might have emigration as some might not be able to provide that level of work to support giving them minimum wage and would have to seek work elsewhere

2019-01-11 22:41:13 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

is it wrong that people advocate their own interest?

2019-01-11 22:48:05 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

i dont think theres a necessity that "the people's" interests and the interest of individuals, even extremely influential individuals, must be at odds. that being said obviously there can arise situations where they do and i think that beyond all else the most important priority as "a people" is to figure out how to avoid those situations and create means of acting together for mutual interest in a beneficial way

2019-01-11 22:57:05 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

realistically the "1%" and the politicians are always going to mix and they even need to, it would be stupid for instance to make provisions making cars less expensive if car manufacturers are telling you it wouldnt make a difference or even make it more expensive, for example. I agree the state needs regulations and provisions but with the recognition that individuals will always, in some shape or form, pursue their own profit to the exclusion of all else and that isnt a bad thing.

2019-01-11 22:58:05 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

fuck protectionism tho

2019-01-11 23:00:08 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

in general if the system they are participating in is well constructed, yes

2019-01-11 23:00:34 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

if the system is poorly constructed then perhaps not

2019-01-11 23:01:13 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

i agree, so then the emphasis should be in creating a system that allows people to profit without exploitation

2019-01-11 23:04:45 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

we do, but its also important to realize that changes to the system dictate who those people who are politicians and richmen are

2019-01-11 23:05:31 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

if your changes merely change who is on top, without changing the actions they're incentivized towards, there will always be a conflict

2019-01-11 23:06:12 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

i can accept a kind of "nobility of merit", hereditary nobility?

2019-01-11 23:06:15 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

fuck no

2019-01-11 23:06:36 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

just because your dad was a good guy doesnt mean you are

2019-01-11 23:07:25 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

appreciate you're just putting it out there and i get the appeal, hereditary entitlements just a bugbear of mine

2019-01-11 23:12:03 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

@Deleted User and i get why, it would sadden me if the english monarchy went away and obviously theres alot of history and sentimental value put up around a certain family and those traditions but the problem is that hereditary nobility often invests power in those least capable of using it and most interested in abusing it

2019-01-11 23:12:22 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

if you needed to earn your family title id be more interested

2019-01-11 23:15:31 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

how is that different to say, a president then?

2019-01-11 23:20:01 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

a president could be elected for life but for any lifelong position theres always the concern that while they once might have been entirely devoted to their country that the devotion wanes over time. there's also no reason to believe that a prince would be equally as devoted.

2019-01-11 23:22:23 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

right but history shows that not all princes were effectively groomed for rule. why take that risk?

2019-01-11 23:26:39 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

@๐•ฟ๐–”๐–™๐–†๐–‘๐–Ž๐–™๐–†๐–—๐–Ž๐–†๐–“ ๐•ฒ๐–—๐–†๐–“๐–‰๐–†๐–‰๐–‰๐–‰๐–ž not all princes are groomed from birth though and not all princes are willing or capable of carrying out their duty as they are required to. take commodus for example.

2019-01-11 23:27:27 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

right but how is that determined in a monarchical system?

2019-01-11 23:30:46 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

unless its too fearless. then it dies anyway

2019-01-11 23:32:29 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

right but its important to remember that in a religious context that those *could* be valid actions so long as they gather more adherents

2019-01-11 23:34:52 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

right but in terms of a religions survival or practice enlightenment is only valid so long as it draws people to the faith. your religion could be as enlightened as it could be but if theres no-one practicing it, it doesnt exist

2019-01-11 23:35:58 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

it can, especially if your not the person being hit by the sword

2019-01-11 23:36:46 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

ill put a caveat on my point though in that absolute numbers of religious adherents doesnt make a faith any more or less viable

2019-01-11 23:37:43 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

at least not sufficiently to prevent you doing so

2019-01-11 23:38:10 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  


2019-01-12 00:28:44 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

id be interested in reading that myself but not a fan of anprim, which i think unibomber broadly falls under

2019-01-12 17:46:09 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

>god told me i canโ€™t get a girlfriend

2019-01-12 17:46:11 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  


2019-01-12 17:47:12 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

@Kazimir Malevich least the brits had an empire...

2019-01-12 17:48:57 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

So your gonna die some day and your house has a boundary

2019-01-12 17:49:38 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

Canโ€™t really read into that โ€œthou shalt not fuck big booty bitchesโ€ David

2019-01-12 18:03:23 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

if you actually look at history david cultures that tolerate and allow the dominant culture to be questioned result in the culture being more strongly established

2019-01-12 18:05:42 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

how well does islam spread in the western world

2019-01-12 18:06:51 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

meanwhile saudi arabia seems to find it necessary to go to extreme and expensive measures to retain, only retain mind you, their understanding of islam as predominant in society

2019-01-12 18:07:18 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

and the dominant culture globally is western culture

2019-01-12 18:07:50 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

lol k

2019-01-12 18:08:50 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

how you figure that, doc?

2019-01-12 18:10:22 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

liberal democracy, the scientific method, the philosophical legacy of the hellenists, enlightenment thinkers....

2019-01-12 18:10:48 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

and yes, starbucks also

2019-01-12 18:11:00 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

pop culture is also culture

2019-01-12 18:11:11 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

high and low culture are both things

2019-01-12 18:12:36 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

still culture mang

2019-01-12 18:14:19 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

doesnt seem to be. the global hegemon is america and its pretty secure. its challengers? not so much. also "lived experience" might be talked about but i dont see it being used in the field by engineers

2019-01-12 18:14:44 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

allowing criticism reinforces its adoption and allows it to adapt

2019-01-12 18:15:35 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

the king is dead, long live the king

2019-01-12 18:15:51 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

but america dominates that world

2019-01-12 18:16:21 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

the globe bows to the standard america sets, not visa versa

2019-01-12 18:18:40 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

islam has a strong base, and thats *it*, lets compare this to the periods of time where sects like the mutazila where tolerated and formed a wider sway...
at that point of time it was dominant and growing, rather than today where its stagnant and in decline

2019-01-12 18:19:21 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

nor do i see the criticsm being levelled in most cases in western culture as destructive

2019-01-12 18:19:43 UTC [Nationalist Union #general]  

and yes, islam is seeing less not more global influence
