    Does anyone else think End Game kinda sucked? (Spoilers probably)

    It's a stretch to believe that being dysfunctional-depressive, and wildly out-of-shape was a "non-issue". But sure, if you say so then it must be the case.

    Or you know, maybe that five-year long-bender which left him with that sick dad bod made it a little challenging for him to be in peak combat shape.

    Israel General Thread

    I think the best solution would involve just moving Israel. they did it 70 years ago, no reason they can't do it do it again. Hear me out here. The Israel problem hinges on the Catch-22 so elegantly described by various posters wherein they have no choice but to defend themselves from hostile...

    Why do people generalize each other in society so much?

    that's because there are no other parties with any parliamentary process and the entire civic structure is monopolised by 2 parties. coalition politics is super common literally almost everywhere else in the world. the question of such politics don't arise in america because it is effectively an...

    Serious Left X Right 2: Electric Bogaloo (An experiment)

    For me right wing sprouts out in two distinct ways, an I'll try to use extreme examples in order to mark a clear difference in sensibilities they have. The first is an anarchic, liberty oriented vision based around absolute individual freedoms limited as little as possible by any state structure...

    General News Discussion Thread

    the fact that the president of a major superpower has an unsecured personal phone on the side is a redundant reminder of how mindbogglingly retarded he is.

    Serious when is violence acceptable?

    There was a guy called Bhagat Singh in India who used to hatch plots to assassinate and blow up English officers and bureaucrats during the colonial times. He is a national motherfucking hero today. There are a litany of movies and video games (Inglorious Basterds, Valkyrie, Elite Sniper etc)...

    General News Discussion Thread

    you forget to mention that he's a white millionaire whose family made their fortune from cotton fields in Louisiana. If his life was a tv show I'd say his character was rather lazily written lol. (disc: he doesn't really own slaves or anything... it's just funny as fuck)

    Serious What to do when witnessing someone getting harassed?

    Your friends is wrong. You essentially walked away from an inconvenient situation. Even if it was right you would have no way of knowing that. Convincing yourself otherwise is only a way to ease guilt. Stand up. Be resolute. Trust your instinct of kindness and compassion over your instinct of...

    It means backtracking and reframing your earlier statements to mean something different from what they clearly appeared to mean when you first posted them. And I really don't care whether you disagree with that so feel free to not to drag this out. I couldn't care less if you are indignant about...

    There is no language barrier. I possess reasonable intelligence + a fine grasp of English. You didn't merely state there are historians who use the term genocide for pre-20thC, but also discredited such usage noting "harsh distinctions". You then went on to challenge the credibility and...

    Was Columbus an active protector of Native Americans? No. Did he wish to eliminate them? We can't know, not at least to modern legal standards of proof. Did genocide directly result from his decrees and his family’s commercial aims? Yes. Undeniably yes. Any post by you which doesn't explicitly...

    There is exhaustive criticism regarding genocide being classed as an exclusively post-colonial phenomenon which makes it very easy for instance to make an international criminal out of an African strongman but not so easy to denounce European massacring of native populations around the world in...

    I don't know if your example (picked from African politics) is concordant to the discussion of Columbus' crimes and I'm not well-versed enough in international law to evaluate your claim. My specific problem with your post was while it paid all the attention and care to referring to specific...

    "I also want to add that I even pointed out that there are historians who do see colonial mass-violence as genocide" you didn't. don't lie. I wouldn't have been half as livid if you did. I have your post right in front of me. You do however spend a lot of time cherrypicking the credibility of...
