Message from Victor O in Nice Respectable People Group #general
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
now I can keep my opposition to pointless wars while also being being against mass immigration
not that neo-cons were ever really against mass immigration, but at least they're moderately against illegals
Why don't politicians fight the wars themselves anymore?
We are ruled by an effete academic class.
Pretty sure the founding fathers advocated for the total opposite
George Washington led his troops in front of the ranks at times
Even tho he sucked at it.
He was a grand strategy General similar to Eisenhower, not a battle General
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.
Biggest redpill in starship troopers is the longer we stay on earth the more likely our extinction
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.
The devil is always in the details. Only 8.4% for the Danish People's Party.
Starship troopers is painful because it's grim future is so much brighter than our present.
Also well worth the read.
@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 .... 🔥
If we started canning offenders,like Singapore, there would be a severe reduction in crime.
Yeah but Starship Troopers goes next level.
Sure does 😁
I wouldn’t mind at all serving in the military were it not Israeli proxy wars or destabilizing countries for profit
Maybe these parents would stop trying to be friends and start being Mom & Dad
The military is super gay
Eisenhower warned the country, no one listened
Starship Troopers military is sweet though
John Birch has been spot on
Lol. Why Bhutan?
I just like the Bhutanese flag.
Bhutan/Wales Dragon alliance when?
Celtic Buddhism is the way forward
Dude I’d love to go to Bhutan
They’re VERY strict about entering the country though
Bhutan’s one of the few countries the US doesn’t have relations with
$200/day visitation fee
On top of everything else.
Happy people, apparently their biggest problem is cigarettes
Listen to their anthem on YouTube
I dig it, honestly
