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.

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.

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

2019-02-05 00:10:22 UTC  

John Birch has been spot on

2019-02-05 00:28:35 UTC  

Lol. Why Bhutan?

2019-02-05 00:28:36 UTC  

I just like the Bhutanese flag.
Bhutan/Wales Dragon alliance when?

2019-02-05 00:29:25 UTC  

Celtic Buddhism is the way forward

2019-02-05 00:30:05 UTC  

Dude I’d love to go to Bhutan

2019-02-05 00:30:17 UTC  

They’re VERY strict about entering the country though

2019-02-05 00:30:36 UTC  

Bhutan’s one of the few countries the US doesn’t have relations with

2019-02-05 00:30:38 UTC  

$200/day visitation fee

2019-02-05 00:30:46 UTC  

On top of everything else.

2019-02-05 00:31:13 UTC  

Happy people, apparently their biggest problem is cigarettes

2019-02-05 00:33:29 UTC  

Listen to their anthem on YouTube

2019-02-05 00:33:33 UTC  

So strange

2019-02-05 00:38:08 UTC  

I dig it, honestly
