@puhfrugherterbrururbbpfthhft From that angle, with the white box on top of it, that tank looks like a shoe laying sideways

Q: Why is communism superior to capitalism?

A: Because it heroically overcomes problems that do not exist in any other system.

Q: Could ticks have a revolution of their own?

A: Yes, the blood of the working class runs through them.

Guys, I figured it out! If we take the DNA from bees and humans and mix it and breed a BEEMAN... we can make communism work!!

"[...] his confused notions of socialism can be read in The Lion and the Unicorn (1941) [...]"

"Orwell describes the Labour Party as “socialist” and continues in the same paragraph to describe, quite accurately, why it is not and cannot be socialist."

>Orwell was a socialist
>Orwell didn't understand socialism
>Surprised Pikachu face

This is what happens when you debunk every single hero someone has

He loves to use Orwell's "socialist viewpoints" as a shield to claim that Orwell supported socialism. So proving that *other socialists* criticize Orwell's view of socialism fucks with his narrative

The far right is evil, because all evil is far right. Since Tommy is evil, therefore he is far right.

Tommy cares about Britain, that's very evil

Change my mind

What good person loves their country? Makes no sense

Oh noes, he recovered from the last blow

Correction: all because he wanted a fair trial

You don't get a fair trial in Britain when the media has (of course correctly praise be) determined that you're evil

@BabaBooey I think you deserve a fair trial, too, when the communist plague gets wiped out. And by fair trial I mean one that determines that you're evil and then prosecutes you with no jury.

"What sort of due process is this?"
"Your guilt has been determined Mr. Robinson, this is merely a sentencing hearing. So what will it be? Death or prison?"
"If you think I'm going to go down that Muslim shithole willingly, you have another thing coming."
"Death, then."
"Looks that way."
"Very well. Death... by prison."

Next level autism

White nationalautism

You shud

Sargon is in a weird place right now. Not a proper politician, but trying to be, thus also not a proper shitpostingYoutuber anymore, but still shitposting.

If Sargon doesn't get his act together soon, he could go up in flames. Not kidding.

Sargon shouldn't have attempted to get into politics, it was a mistake

He wasn't properly prepared

Yeah in Britain, politics may indeed be shitposting lol

Jess Phillips should've responded "What makes you think I'd let you rape me in the first place?"
And watch Sargon squirm out of that rhetorical trick

Oh boy, you're killing him

The point is, Sargon doesn't fucking think before he speaks

Because Sargon is too used to shitposting

You need to separate politics from shitposting, you don't shit where you eat, so you keep your shitposting private

That's what people are criticizing about Trump

lol, same idea, different conclusion

Trump didn't win because he was shitposting, he won because Hillary sucked

So a politician wins by shitposting?

You say no, that's my argument

They don't win by shitposting, so don't shitpost

I can't make sense of this

"No, shitposting doesn't help"
"Shitposting could help"
Pick one

So shitposting doesn't help, but it helps when you miraculously have knowledge that it does help

Teach me these powers

Do not speak ill of the power of the lliberalistisisticist

What if you go somewhere else not because you want to go somewhere else, but because it's away from where you are?

2019-07-11 20:52:04 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

What if you go somewhere else not because you want to go somewhere else, but because it's away from where you are?

2019-07-11 20:52:19 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

What if you go somewhere else not because you want to go somewhere else, but because it's away from where you are?

2019-07-11 21:16:40 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

wat

2019-07-11 21:52:19 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Need source explaining the full context

2019-07-11 21:55:26 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

France has absurdly high tax rates, but it's going to reduce it in the coming years, in particular the corporate income tax

2019-07-11 21:56:30 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Well

2019-07-11 21:56:38 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

The idea is basically that they see globalism happening

2019-07-11 21:57:11 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

They see money increasingly flowing out, not as much back in, since the internet is only gonna get stronger, so they try to get ahead of it

2019-07-11 21:58:31 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Look, I'm a proponent of less taxation, but I also want fair taxation. So France demanding Silicon Valley to pay up makes perfect sense to me.

2019-07-11 22:01:42 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

That's why it's only 3%, it seems fair enough

2019-07-11 22:02:09 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I think Trump is probably just virtue signalling

2019-07-11 22:02:23 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Pretending to be against it maybe

2019-07-11 22:02:48 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I'm not American 😮

2019-07-11 22:03:00 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Oh right

2019-07-11 22:11:47 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

In before "BREAKING NEWS: Amazon removing books from its store due to political bias"
oh, wait...

2019-07-11 22:15:25 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

The day will come when taxation becomes an untenable concept

2019-07-11 22:20:51 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah, I wonder how would this discussion go if Silicon Valley was politically indifferent towards non-leftard voices?

2019-07-11 22:46:12 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

I've talked to a lot of people who care

2019-07-11 22:46:44 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

They're just not so vocal about it when someone from the left is around

2019-07-12 01:23:48 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

I don't know, I just think vacationing for the sake of getting away from home for a while makes a lot of sense. Everyone has a different motivation.

2019-07-12 01:25:35 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

Me for example, besides wanting to meet extended family, often I have no preferred location when I go on holiday.

2019-07-12 01:38:03 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Ok wow lol
I don't give a single fuck about the JQ but this is hilarious

2019-07-12 04:30:23 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Nationalist right-wing progressive, you're a special snowflake

2019-07-12 05:09:01 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

You can't have an anarchic state period

2019-07-12 05:10:06 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Marxism only described there would be a revolution

2019-07-12 05:10:17 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Not that there should be

2019-07-12 05:12:56 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Fascism is a collectivist nationalist ideology, and it's very socialist, but socialism is not its core idea

2019-07-12 05:13:14 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It just so happens that collectivist ideologies must be more socialist than capitalist by their nature

2019-07-12 05:13:36 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah, fascism allows for some capitalism

2019-07-12 05:14:16 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

There are two basic things that define socialism:
1) Redistribute wealth
2) Collectivize the means of production

2019-07-12 05:15:34 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Collectivizing the means of production is not fascism, no

2019-07-12 05:16:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Sure you can, you just do it, you use force to do it

2019-07-12 05:16:51 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Collectivizing the means of production doesn't mean the whole society owns the factories

2019-07-12 05:17:35 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It means that the private individual does not own the factories, meaning an individual can only be *allowed to run* a factory, but it can't own it while running it

2019-07-12 05:18:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

That's one of the problems, yes

2019-07-12 05:18:30 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

The Soviet Union failed because of this exact problem, because you failed upwards

2019-07-12 05:19:13 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Being truthful was not smart, because it would get you punished. So you lied. And by lying you are a failure, because no one knows how much to produce, or how much you produced.

2019-07-12 05:19:19 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

So incompetence got rewarded

2019-07-12 05:19:48 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yep

2019-07-12 05:20:25 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Well, the manager is there so someone can get punished if things go wrong

2019-07-12 05:21:03 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

So under communism your goal was to not get punished, not to produce optimally

2019-07-12 05:21:52 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Redistribution of wealth is the less dysfunctional part of socialism

2019-07-12 05:22:36 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah, and also another things

2019-07-12 05:22:58 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Nothing in the socialist definition says that wealth must be redistributed to the less fortunate

2019-07-12 05:23:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It can go to the wealthy instead

2019-07-12 05:24:27 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah idk either, this can also happen under capitalism

2019-07-12 05:25:03 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Whatever is owned doesn't neccessarily have to be used

2019-07-12 05:25:16 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Socialism or capitalism doesn't matter in that regard

2019-07-12 05:26:41 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Redistribution of wealth doesn't mean equal wealth

2019-07-12 05:26:48 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I think you're misunderstanding the meaning of socialism

2019-07-12 05:27:32 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Socialism is supposed to plug all the holes basically so no one has to suffer, that's the theory at least

2019-07-12 05:27:37 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It's not supposed to make everyone equal

2019-07-12 05:28:41 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It doesn't need to be owned by everyone, how often do I have to explain that

2019-07-12 05:28:51 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Socialism doesn't say anything about equality

2019-07-12 05:29:16 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

No, not everyone is equal under communism

2019-07-12 05:29:44 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

From each according to their ability to each according to their needs - that's not a matter of equality, nothing in there says that

2019-07-12 05:30:18 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I bet if you asked Marx right now, he'd probably scoff at the idea of equality

2019-07-12 05:30:44 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

No it isn't

2019-07-12 05:31:56 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

>From each according to their ability
But also
>To each according to their needs

2019-07-12 05:32:10 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Your needs determine what you gain, you're not supposed to get more than you need

2019-07-12 05:32:28 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

No, that's wrong

2019-07-12 05:32:33 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

That's central planning

2019-07-12 05:33:00 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

You're not supposed to get more than you need by means of socialism, but you can enrich yourself further beyond your needs

2019-07-12 05:33:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

AFTER all people's needs are met

2019-07-12 05:33:46 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

If everyone's needs are met, you can enrich yourself. The true problem of communism lies beyond this idea. It's not about equality.

2019-07-12 05:34:03 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Jack, I know the realistic problems of communism, but we're talking about the theory

2019-07-12 05:34:14 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

In theory, equality doesn't matter in communism

2019-07-12 05:34:57 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

You gotta at least acknowledge the theory first, because you would want the same courtesy from others about your own ideas

2019-07-12 05:35:09 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Then you can go into the realizability

2019-07-12 05:35:52 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Marx was actually a lot less radical than today's AntiFa type

2019-07-12 05:36:02 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Communism is less radical than the idea of strict equality

2019-07-12 05:36:25 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Marx only predicted the revolution, he didn't say there has to be a revolution

2019-07-12 05:36:52 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

And he predicted wrongly

2019-07-12 05:37:10 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

There will be no revolution, at least not for the reasons he thought

2019-07-12 05:37:53 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah that ratio is very clear, get a helicopter

2019-07-12 05:38:54 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

What is even essentialism?

2019-07-12 05:42:11 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Aight yeah

2019-07-12 05:42:16 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I'd be very essentialist then

2019-07-12 05:42:37 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Which makes me a white supremacist of course

2019-07-12 05:43:04 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I don't trust any of these tests

2019-07-12 05:43:15 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

High likelihood that at least one of the bars is incorrect

2019-07-12 05:43:40 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I think the political compass is complete trash

2019-07-12 05:44:13 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Even two dimensions are trash

2019-07-12 05:44:37 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

And with three dimensions it would only increase the likelihood of a fuck-up

2019-07-12 05:45:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Ok, so

2019-07-12 05:45:14 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Here's just one of the problems with a philosophical dichotomy

2019-07-12 05:45:28 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Nihilism on one side, ok
The opposite would be... what?

2019-07-12 05:46:32 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Ok so far so good, then the next problem

2019-07-12 05:46:38 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Where does absurdism go?

2019-07-12 05:48:15 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Well, see

2019-07-12 05:48:32 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It just shows how much can go wrong with these tests

2019-07-12 05:48:44 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

By the way on the political test it should be capitalism - socialism, not capitalism - communism
cap - com is not a true dichotomy

2019-07-12 05:55:22 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Nihilism is pretty much the ultimate black pill

2019-07-12 05:55:35 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Hard to function as a human being when you're a complete 100% nihilist

2019-07-12 05:56:37 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

100% nihilism would be literally nothing matters, meaning nothing matters to you either

2019-07-12 05:58:12 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Technically as an absolutist nihilist you can do anything you want, but it would all be devoid of meaning, so you could only have fun if you enjoy doing meaningless things, otherwise death may be your only real option.

2019-07-12 05:59:57 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

@JoeyJoestar1337 sounds like absurdism might interest you

2019-07-12 06:00:18 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah

2019-07-12 06:01:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Said the nihilist

2019-07-12 06:09:38 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

That's not a contradiction if you've only formulated the wish, not done the deed

2019-07-12 06:11:50 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

According to a recent video I watched, the average person can only have a handful true friends, the rest are just people they know

2019-07-12 06:12:40 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

That's nothing out of the ordinary

2019-07-12 06:12:48 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

It used to be normal pre 21st century

2019-07-12 06:13:56 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I hear they screw over veterans regularly

2019-07-12 06:13:59 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Not sure if true

2019-07-12 20:02:38 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Caring for your children? That's so 14th century

2019-07-12 20:03:23 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

The finest bigotry imaginable

2019-07-12 20:03:51 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

We're clearly living in hell if not everyone wants to have sex with everyone else

2019-07-13 02:54:10 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Oh noes, a story contains bad things, boo and hoo

2019-07-13 02:54:38 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

These people would literally claim a story with a villain propagates being a villain

2019-07-13 03:34:53 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

In Austria we have mandatory civil service for those who refuse to do military service. It builds character. The US should implement the same system.

2019-07-13 03:35:58 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Would not surprise me if this was one of the reasons why Austria still has a strong conservative voter base.

2019-07-13 04:05:05 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Yeah. I should add that I believe mandatory services should only exist in a society that has a government and a democratic process. In my ideal society there would be no mandatory services, but in the US it makes perfect sense. I think it makes no sense to argue taxes and regulations are good, but mandatory service is bad.

2019-07-13 04:07:33 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

If anything, mandatory service would ensure that the government gives every citizen a first chance to get a foot in the door, since quite a few people who enter military or civil services end up working there a lot longer than originally intended, plus it looks really good on the CV.

2019-07-13 04:09:06 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Especially people who argue that people from a certain background can't get a job would be morally required to support this.

2019-07-13 18:07:43 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Goddamn, there's nothing special about Soph

2019-07-13 18:07:56 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

She's a kid, woop-dee-doo

2019-07-13 18:59:52 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

And my point is that there's literally nothing special about her. She's a kid, she has opinions some people here agree with. Big deal.

2019-07-13 19:00:31 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

She has nothing new or of value to add. She's basically a freak show because she's a kid.

2019-07-13 19:00:59 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

The obsession with her is morbid.

2019-07-13 19:02:13 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

I'd call it "political fetishization"

2019-07-13 19:03:27 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Some of her opinions aren't even that great. A lot of the things she says are pure spite.

2019-07-13 19:04:08 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

But she has "the correct opinions" so people follow her regardless of how much stupid shit she says.

2019-07-13 19:04:32 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Plus the freak show factor

2019-07-13 19:06:34 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Tbh I think using her as a thought leader is going to backfire real hard, and we better realize that sooner than later.

2019-07-13 19:36:55 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

She disables comments on many of her videos. Clearly she herself is aware that she attracts fucking weirdos. These screenshots I just found in under one minute from her latest video.

https://gyazo.com/8f920e84e34bc3def72a8fe15f604545

2019-07-13 19:38:37 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Soph is clearly being used as a thought leader, and we all know what kind of people she speaks to. There's no way this will end well. She should quit doing Youtube until she's old enough to be of a respectable age talking about these things to millions of people.

2019-07-13 19:39:55 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

She's not your "I don't like the direction things are going" political Youtuber critical of the establishment, she's straight up blackpilled.

2019-07-13 19:41:10 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

It's not too late, she can quit right now and come back when she's of an appropriate age.

2019-07-13 19:41:28 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Not on Youtube he wasn't

2019-07-13 19:42:07 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Then that's equally wrong

I don't get it, have we lost our collective minds over the political divide?

2019-07-13 19:43:07 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

When will common sense and decency return? Ever?

2019-07-13 19:43:26 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Children should speak about politics, yes that's a good thing. But not like this.

A 60 y/o conservative man tells Soph she speaks for him

2019-07-13 19:45:20 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

I'm sure that's gonna do wonders for her mentality

2019-07-13 19:45:44 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

And it's such a wonderful thing when adults worship a girl for her political views

2019-07-13 19:46:11 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

Now I understand why people are saying NPCs also exist on the right

2019-07-13 20:02:42 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

AOC proves that democracy by itself without being properly refined is completely worthless. It just shows that there is no good form of government, there are only less terrible ones.

@Wizard_of_The_West And European countries don't? 😄

Last time I checked people believe miracles haben, ghosts are real, a magic man hears their prayers, and 99.99999999% pure water can heal them, among many other things

2019-07-13 21:06:47 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Ok ya that might be true

2019-07-13 21:08:57 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Just gotta import them all, according to the progressives that will make them come to the light

2019-07-13 21:09:19 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Cause the evil west is a great place for immigrants

AntiFa are authoritarian, they're collectivist, they're thugs, they're terrorists, simple enough

Just use all the (correct) words in the book to describe them

2019-07-14 00:18:03 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Maybe

2019-07-14 00:18:12 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I always try to think of possible ways things can backfire

Not just in the short run

Historians seem to be very bad at politics, economics etc.

2019-07-14 01:00:51 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

I agree actually, it's a good thing that you can work many jobs

2019-07-14 01:01:05 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Think of the alternative, you categorically cannot work many jobs

2019-07-14 01:01:13 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Sounds better? For what reason?

2019-07-14 01:04:34 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Terrible, how can we allow that, people working more for extra money

2019-07-14 01:05:17 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Must be capitalists who want that. Always exploiting people by giving them opportunities to make more money.

2019-07-14 01:08:09 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

My dad had three, sometimes four jobs

2019-07-14 01:08:28 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Granted, he could've made millions doing just one job, but he chose that for himself

2019-07-14 01:09:08 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

My mom had two jobs while my dad had three or four

2019-07-14 01:10:00 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

I don't know who these people are blaming

2019-07-14 01:10:26 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Most people don't have a growth mindset

2019-07-14 01:10:34 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

It's their own fault

2019-07-14 01:13:06 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Women hold more jobs because they don't work full time

2019-07-14 17:18:46 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

Yep. You can only change an open mind.

2019-07-14 17:20:04 UTC [Athens #palaestra_debates]  

If someone is so full of energy that they're defending their viewpoints in a proper debate, then they're almost guaranteed to stick to their views.

2019-07-14 18:22:13 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I think they're not going far enough. They should make every character black, and never white.

2019-07-14 18:22:41 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

I want them to play all their cards at once, no more beating around the bush.

2019-07-14 18:24:01 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

I'd be willing to bet there are many gay people who find straight sex disgusting.

2019-07-14 18:24:17 UTC [Athens #tholos_general_news]  

They just can't say that, because if they do, oh boy that would kill the narrative.

2019-07-15 06:55:45 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Fuck yeah

2019-07-15 07:17:31 UTC [Athens #voulĂ­_politics_discussion]  

Freedom of expression? Nazi!

2019-07-15 16:31:28 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

I'd actually encourage them to do more swapping of gender/race etc., ideally with ALL of movie history, so that every known protagonist ever will henceforth be non-white

2019-07-15 16:31:44 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

non-male
non-straight
etc.

2019-07-15 16:32:19 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

The point is

2019-07-15 16:33:20 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

If they do it unobstructed, it'll redpill just about every non-radical movie-goer

2019-07-15 16:33:59 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

They're doing it slowly and even this is redpilling the masses very slowly

2019-07-15 16:34:06 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Imagine what would happen if they did it rapidly

2019-07-15 16:34:29 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

It would cause the left to implode

2019-07-15 16:35:31 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Why do people call Hitler the bad guy, but Mussolini is being somewhat sidelined? Because Hitler was more "successful", or more radical

2019-07-15 16:39:52 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Well sure, that too. My takeaway is that optics are directly proportional to scale.

2019-07-15 16:40:32 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

lol France hasn't actually lost often

2019-07-15 16:40:38 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

but w/e 😉

2019-07-15 16:41:53 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

That goes way beyond my knowledge

2019-07-15 16:42:54 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Big mistake

2019-07-15 16:44:03 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Hitler was bluffing throughout most of his conquests

2019-07-15 16:44:39 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

The more I'm studying his wars, the more I come to believe that, had just one nation called his bluff, he would've been stopped

2019-07-15 16:46:37 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Well, not sure about domination, but

2019-07-15 16:46:53 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

France was weakened, so that's the one I understand the most

2019-07-15 16:47:03 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

But Austria simply gave up, we didn't fight at all

2019-07-15 16:47:38 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

I doubt Hitler could've annexed Austria had we actually faced him

2019-07-15 16:48:54 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

From all the wars, I know about Austria's annexation the most

2019-07-15 16:52:48 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

The short version goes like this:
Over many years, Nazis took key roles in our politics, which was tolerated for reasons I will likely never understand. Austria experienced very troubling times due to violent political conflict between the parties and their supporters. A lot of people died due to terrorism.
There was also a lot of miscommunication at the highest levels between the Austrian president and the chancellor and so forth. And there were elections to be held, but they were unfortunately illegal and so the situation was very tense. Hitler moved in just at the very moment when elections were supposed to be held. He was afraid that after the elections he'd lose his chance to annex Austria.

2019-07-15 16:54:24 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Basically Hitler was carefully spreading chaos in Austria's politics with the help of Nazi infiltration. This chaos is what made it possible for him to just march in with no resistance, which comes down to the Austrian chancellor being a complete bitch who was too afraid for, well, we don't know exactly what he was so afraid about.

2019-07-15 16:54:49 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Civil unrest strongly added to everything.

2019-07-15 16:55:26 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Yeah it was a lot of backdoor politics, so we'll never know.

2019-07-15 16:56:10 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

Since Hitler made sure to kill his political enemies, there were not many survivors to tell the story from their perspective.

2019-07-15 16:59:28 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

What does "yeet himself" mean?

2019-07-15 17:00:51 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

You forgot to add "rumors have it"

2019-07-15 17:06:12 UTC [Athens #piraeus_politics_news]  

There are always some nutcases defending other nutcases

Wait "failed at parenting"? She was a mother?
