The part showing his campaign ad and then contrasted with what he did after winning is priceless.

2018-08-31 16:18:14 UTC  

I heard the speech that he penned yo be read after his death. The line that caught me was "..American, that's my favorite association, America. A country built on ideology. Not blood and soil."

2018-08-31 16:18:32 UTC  

I almost spit out my breakfast.

2018-08-31 16:19:07 UTC  

@MrBland - VA Agreed. That border fence campaign ad was just peak cringe...

2018-08-31 17:09:33 UTC  

Christopher Columbus fought for the Confederate Army? @Goose

2018-08-31 17:12:54 UTC  

@Fox if you asked that to the average idiot, they'd say "yes"

2018-08-31 17:14:18 UTC  

@Goose Please tell me you joined the Facebook group.

"I too am a supporter of the rights of indigenous peoples to claim their land. For example did you know and indigenous Swedes are being invaded and murdered by foreign aggressors?!?"

@Fox i've had enough cancer for the week.
besides white men aren't allowed opinions, remember?

@celticflame Dang...

2018-08-31 17:32:36 UTC  

Yep! Excellent lol,about time! Turn about is fair play

2018-08-31 17:32:57 UTC  

Tfw the kirtarchy actually works (in our favor)...

2018-08-31 17:33:24 UTC  

Lol yes it does and I hope it continues

2018-08-31 17:39:07 UTC  

reading a few of these, it's amazing how codified society was's%20laws.htm

2018-08-31 17:39:24 UTC  

(Hammurabi's laws)

2018-08-31 18:05:29 UTC  

I dunno Chris, seems like they pretty much just killed everybody who did something wrong.

2018-08-31 18:05:36 UTC  

Not a very "chill" society.

2018-08-31 18:06:46 UTC  

Yeah dude, "This builder built a house, and it fell down 5 years later, just get rid of him"

2018-08-31 18:07:53 UTC  

It does illustrate how unnatural it is to live in a large settlement, though. We have since gotten very good at structuring large societies, but early cities must have been hellish

2018-08-31 18:10:36 UTC  

282. If a slave says to his master: "You are not my master," if they convict him his master shall cut off his ear.

2018-08-31 18:11:42 UTC  

Half of these include burying the guy who did you wrong in your house. What's up with that?

2018-08-31 18:12:20 UTC  

I'm good with just cutting his ear off

2018-08-31 18:15:26 UTC  

But one may have to consider. Before large settlements and complex societies, the only jurisprudence may have been personal vendettas. So maybe these laws reconcile local custom with an objective apparatus for implementing law.

2018-08-31 18:15:53 UTC  

215: If a physician performs eye surgery and saves the eye, he shall receive ten shekels in money.

Ancient eye surgery <:nervous:359009898115104770>

@Jason - CT absolutely, what I'm saying is that the apparatus is clunky, and that I'm happy to live in a time where the heavy hand of the state doesn't weigh down on me in such an inhuman way

2018-08-31 18:19:23 UTC  

I wonder how much of this was actually necessary to enforce.

2018-08-31 18:20:06 UTC  

Or if threat of really clear and severe capital punishment was enough to dissuade all but the most impulsive criminals.

2018-08-31 18:20:50 UTC  

Some of these seem to be very easy to accidentally commit

2018-08-31 18:21:34 UTC  

Yeah i noted that as well

2018-08-31 18:23:10 UTC  

192. If an adopted son says to his adoptive father or mother: "You are not my father, or my mother," his tongue shall be cut off.

2018-08-31 18:23:38 UTC  

195. If a son strikes his father, his hands shall be cut off.

2018-08-31 18:24:28 UTC  

196. If someone says, "They watch anime" they shall have their eyes removed

2018-08-31 18:25:03 UTC  

This is a good law ^

2018-08-31 18:26:14 UTC  

Idk. Seems like they were on to something.

2018-08-31 18:28:12 UTC  

127. If any one "point the finger" at (slanders or accuses of adultery) a holy woman or someone else’s wife but cannot prove it, this man shall be taken before the judges and his brow shall be marked (by cutting the skin, or perhaps cutting off half his hair.)

Half of ya'll would be bald.
