Re: China Destroys

With the 70th anniversary just passed I don't think China's socialism report card is that great. What scores would you give them using the 12 core values they officially espouse? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/1f/Chinese_core_socialist_values.jpg/800px-Chinese_core_socialist_...

Re: China Destroys

I give China till December to pull back from the brink. After that when all the loans turn over in January with dwindling dollar reserves China becomes incredibly unstable. They will have to sell foreign assets for dollars. 5-10 trillion of those 55 trillion in Chinese loans are dead if they get cal...

Re: China Destroys

Communism is one of Nicholas's bug bears, WeiHan, and he is not amenable to a rational argument when it comes to this subject. I guess we can all agree that China is authoritarian and the state retains a lot of control over the economy, both of these being a feature of Communist governments (but no...

Re: Greta Thunberg

I have seen no criticism of Ms Thunberg on these pages at all...none. I am puzzled by the suggestion that there is any.. It was there. https://serving.photos.photobox.com/2768336806e50e48d7f3e0d41d9378138f08494c093041599b37f8a4d74e3a1601089cd4.jpg https://serving.photos.photobox.com/78557656db6de95...

Re: Climate Change and Climate Skeptics/Deniers

The real issue here, I'm afraid, is that the pundits disagree, leaving us to decide if a rational response to the likes of Greta and her cause should be praise or pity, and if so, whether the two should be conflated or separate. https://lowenthal.house.gov/uploadedphotos/highresolution/24524dad-8af...

Re: Greta Thunberg

The flip side for her is she has seen that she can literally change the entire world through sheer force of will. This will greatly mitigate any long term damage. Most troubled teens feel vulnerable and ineffectual. I'm not so sure she does think that. She is intelligent enough to know Trump, the C...

Re: The Democrats are Going to the Mattresses

I think it will reveal just how corrupt the system has always been to more people. A deranged demagogue inevitably grows out of such a swamp.

Of course, none of us has the full story, and the truth is probably in the middle, but it is interesting the widespread resistance to the idea that a young, neurodivergent girl could be self-empowered.

Re: Right-wing psychology

The secret of liberalism is pretending you are all about justice and equality but making property rights inviolable. That this inevitably leads to oligarchy was old news when Plato wrote about it. Liberalism is a scam. There will be no meaningful change through the center left parties. They have fr...

Re: Right-wing psychology

Working class white voters - in the past, they had their Blue Dog Democrats. Its not pretty, but I'll just point this out - working class white voters had people like Strom Thurmond - segregationists from the South - who kept the Democratic party bending conservative on certain issues.

Were you PSYOP? I don't know how it is in Canada, but the U.S. Army is terrible at this kind of stuff. I would take anything I got from the U.S. Army with a grain of salt given the abysmal failure in Iraq (and probably soon, Afghanistan). The problem is not the psych profiles of these ding dongs. T...

Re: Right-wing psychology

The problem is not the psych profiles of these ding dongs. The problem is oligarchs weaponizing them for their political ends. You could just as easily program then to be civic minded and helpful to society. We did it all the time in the army.
