It's a enough for a deterrent but people drastically over estimate nuclear arms, they could cast the world into turmoil but there simply isn't enough yield to kill everyone on earth or anything crazy. Perhaps at the height of the cold war you would have been closer.

2019-02-04 22:39:14 UTC  

oh yeah, for sure. people would still live

2019-02-04 22:46:05 UTC  

MAD is a weapon in itself

2019-02-04 22:49:42 UTC  

Plus with the globally integrated economies we have now, a war between the US and China would crash the global economy.

@Lawrence of Eurabia I have faith in him, he has already sent thousands of troops over to the border as we speak, but what *KIND* of troops is the important question.

He's probably getting ready to build it with the Army.

2019-02-04 23:04:29 UTC  

He already has the draft to declare a SoE on the Southern border. He either builds that wall or doesn't get the second call

2019-02-04 23:05:43 UTC  

we'll see, but i'm not to certain anymore

2019-02-04 23:16:35 UTC  

I can now claim the achievement of getting Jared Taylor to set up a Discord account

2019-02-04 23:37:26 UTC  

I think all the leaders involved in these disaster wars should be imprisoned for treason.

2019-02-04 23:37:59 UTC  

Banish every pro war politician to the places they waged war in

2019-02-04 23:38:16 UTC  

Now you live in iraq since you love it so much. Have fun

2019-02-04 23:38:45 UTC  

What's really cool about this movement is that it doesn't require me to let go of the good ideas that I had when I sympathized with the left

2019-02-04 23:39:20 UTC  

I was always anti-imperialist my entire life, but a few years ago, I had to choose between the neocon right and the ethnomasochist left

2019-02-04 23:39:50 UTC  

now I can keep my opposition to pointless wars while also being being against mass immigration

2019-02-04 23:40:19 UTC  

not that neo-cons were ever really against mass immigration, but at least they're moderately against illegals

2019-02-04 23:47:45 UTC  

Why don't politicians fight the wars themselves anymore?

2019-02-04 23:51:20 UTC  

We are ruled by an effete academic class.

2019-02-04 23:51:47 UTC  

Pretty sure the founding fathers advocated for the total opposite

2019-02-04 23:53:39 UTC  

George Washington led his troops in front of the ranks at times

2019-02-04 23:54:08 UTC  

Even tho he sucked at it.

2019-02-04 23:55:33 UTC  

He was a grand strategy General similar to Eisenhower, not a battle General

2019-02-04 23:55:43 UTC  

or that's what he was best at

In Denmark's "school general" election in which the country's 8th, 9th, and 10th graders all participated, the Danish conservative parties collectively won 51.2% of the vote.

2019-02-04 23:57:45 UTC  

The older I get the more I think Starship Troopers had it right. Service = Citizenship. No time in military service, no right to vote.

2019-02-04 23:59:08 UTC  

Biggest redpill in starship troopers is the longer we stay on earth the more likely our extinction

2019-02-04 23:59:59 UTC  

Would you guys recommend Starship Troopers? I've really liked the Foundation series. And I've been thinking about something similar, voting rights based on having "skin in the game". How that would be defined or determined, I'm not sure.

2019-02-05 00:00:12 UTC  

The devil is always in the details. Only 8.4% for the Danish People's Party.

2019-02-05 00:03:32 UTC  

Starship troopers is painful because it's grim future is so much brighter than our present.

2019-02-05 00:03:43 UTC  

Also well worth the read.

2019-02-05 00:04:22 UTC  

@Jakob-NY , The first time I read it was on my 1st deployment. After I finished it I wondered how we got into this mess, and it was that the decisions were made by people who had no skin In the game . It was written in the 50s if I’m correct, and it’s just as applicable now as it was then.

2019-02-05 00:05:24 UTC  

Corporal punishment for parents of criminals .... 🔥

2019-02-05 00:05:29 UTC  

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll check it out @Victor O @Alexander Pechorin

2019-02-05 00:06:52 UTC  

If we started canning offenders,like Singapore, there would be a severe reduction in crime.

2019-02-05 00:07:32 UTC  

Yeah but Starship Troopers goes next level.

2019-02-05 00:07:51 UTC  

Sure does 😁

2019-02-05 00:08:25 UTC  

I wouldn’t mind at all serving in the military were it not Israeli proxy wars or destabilizing countries for profit

2019-02-05 00:09:06 UTC  

Maybe these parents would stop trying to be friends and start being Mom & Dad

2019-02-05 00:09:28 UTC  

The military is super gay

2019-02-05 00:09:37 UTC  

Eisenhower warned the country, no one listened

2019-02-05 00:09:51 UTC  

Starship Troopers military is sweet though
