    Nickname discussion

Rotom-W - Big Bosch - Like, rotom is a big boss, but he happened to invade...

    Serious Does some sort of God exist? And why?

    Christian god (and all others) are personified only because this helps people understand/buy into the concept. The tenets of any faith exist just the same without god existing in an easy to imagine way. I'm not arguing for Christianity, but, it would be a disservice to say that there is no...

    Serious Does some sort of God exist? And why?

    It seems to me god is more of a metaphor for the unknown christian god stands in for the source of morality, and the origin of the natural world even if you're atheistic you have some kind of system of values that aren't exactly "objective" which is not obviously different from a religion?

    Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    Poor thing, gets a 185 BP conversion-z that saves a moveslot and still sucks. by the way, if you want to dragon dance with this thing you're probably better off using clangorous and DD on the same set. +1 defense kommo might be able to survive two attacks, letting you clang + DD then sweep.

    Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    Am I missing something here? No one has mentioned Kommo-O. Clangorous Soulblaze seems extremely good. Needless to say it gives Kommo a lot of defensive and offensive prowess to play with.. while handily knocking out plenty of targets in the same turn.

    Serious Political Correctness and Race

    Sorry but youre really putting words in my mouth. Im asserting that violence only leads to escalation. You have a political will and political enemies. To impose your will on them with violence can work, but only if they submit. If they dont submit, theyll fight back, and then to make them...

    Serious Political Correctness and Race

    Hes saying that violence to enforce political will can be justified. I dont necessarily disagree, we call them "freedom fighters" when theyre on our side and "terrorists" when theyre not. My concern is starting a war you cant possibly win.

    Serious Political Correctness and Race

    How is that a system with seemingly bottomless jails, one that profits from jails even, is damaged by violent protests? Violence justifies police violence and massive arresting and incarceration in the eyes of many. As violence escalates, the state's action for violence is further justified...

    How should wealth be distributed?

    are you shitposting/trolling or does a made up statistic that proves a made up metric for the success of an economic policy actually qualify as a good talking point / argument in your mind?

    How should wealth be distributed?

    The corporation is a living entity that's goal is to generate profit. Technically there are owners, and they are the stockholders, but they are so fragmented and convoluted that they have no control over what the corporation tries to achieve. Executives who would try and act in a way that does...
