Political centrism is the only reasonable position

    Left

    -Severely retarded on most economic issues, ignores last 200 years of research in the field
    -Exaggerates severity of climate change based on emotionally charged reading of the data, wants to solve it with GND retardation
    -Pretends that humans are born mental blank slates, denies heritability leading to massively flawed understanding of how social structures, institutions and hierarchies form and maintain
    -Moronic positions of gun issues borne from refusal to acknowledge demographics of crime

    Right

    -Severely retarded on most economic issues, thinks protectionism is reasonable to implement in the current year
    -Easily falls for fossil fuel industry propaganda and denies existence of anthropogenic climate change
    -Simplistic notions of genetic, racial and gender determinism that ignore modern scientific research
    -Insecure and frightened, scapegoats various demographics and hordes guns to defend against imaginary and exaggerated threats

    Center

    -Detailed and nuanced understanding of economic issues from reading actual books written by experts
    -Acknowledges reality of climate change but knows that private sector innovation and smart state policy are the way to solve it
    -Has read Steven Pinker and therefore understands that not only has the world generally gotten better as a consequence of neoliberal economics, but that humans are born with varied genetic psychological endowments that are also mediated by their environments
    -Sensible positions on gun issues, doesn't care if people want to own guns but just wants to make sure background checks are done properly

    Folks, the choice is clear. Ignore the extremes and vote for rationality.

    I just vote for who cuts poor people fatter cheques.


    I used to have pride once and worked for a living but this world wants you as a slave one way or another.

    Fuck everything, I'll rip them off and hope there a fuck load more dead weight like me bringing it down cuz I tried to contribute in my own way but I'm just bitter as fuck and cynical these days.


    That said. I'll be a higher type wherever I end up. Down here.... I still look down at lessers than, no matter there station.

    First reasonable political post I've seen on this site. Unfortunately the far left and far right are pushing all the centrist out of office and our country is going to hell

    Finkel-think.

    Stop trying to make sense of Arthur Finkelstein's device to divide people and set them against each other.

    Reality is it's all a show, as you can find out if you dig into that link. Lots of examples there.

    A good example of both sides doing the exact same shit is Biden's "Infrastructure" giant spending bill, which when you look at what it is spending money on (blacks and the like) you realise is actually just Trump's "Platinum Plan" with a few bridges thrown in.

    So are you are saying this bill spends money on minority communities and has building bridges and that this is a bad thing?

    I'm not being snarky, I'm genuinely asking if you feel that way. Geopolitics has always been a bit over my head tbh. I mean I'm not unaware of what are the prominent global and political issues but once you get deeper than a basic understanding it is so much more complicated. Nothing is simple in GeoPolitcs.

    If you like, Trump, and Biden's plan is the same as Trumps (but with extra bridges) then wouldn't you be happy?

    Geopolitics is actually very very simple, once you learn to cut through the bullshit and see the very simple, straightforward agendas driving events. The only hard part is getting a start, since you aren't allowed to talk about things like identity, the whole ethnic angle, hereditary societal roles, social networks, etc, in polite company. The simple realities of personalities driving events, instead of events having some sort of disembodied mind of their own.

    When you can't incorporate simple truths into your model then whatever hypothesis you come along with to explain reality is by necessity going to be very complicated and, when applied, provide very unreliable predictions.

    I've never been passionate in either direction. My bf says I'm a "centralist" because I don't feel strongly about any issues/topic. It seems unfair that the only politicians in power now and in the forseeable future are going to be either Republican Party or Democrat...like why do the Green Party candidates, Independent, and Libertarian candidates even waste their time and money running for a seat they know they won't win. The closest any of them came recently was in 2016 because that is how much people hate Hilary Clinton. The DNC choosing to back Hilary over Bernie was an error that really showed how out of touch they are.

    Nice job DNC, you didn't just shoot a miss, they probably chose one of the most (statistically speaking of course) hated politicians over one that was probably one of the most well liked. You may not agree with his policies, they are pretty extreme...but from my observations he is at least genuine. Which I can't name a single other politican who I can use that word to describe.

    You don't understand the game. The game isn't for either party to win. If one wins, then the game is over. The game is to keep the game going forever. They want to use the two party dialectic as an instrument of social stability.

    That's why Biden has said over and over that the system needs a strong Republican party, to act as controlled opposition to the Democrats, who are by far the stronger party with overwhelming energy and all of the institutional support, and who actually run America.

    What I think makes Geopoliics so complicated is the emotional reactions from 7billion people. In theory, a lot of American policies are fair and just but when you throw in the factor of human behavior, that's when stuff gets mucky. To me, it's not "the snowflakes get offended and make it difficult". Why would you want to defend offending people? To me it's the boomers too stubborn to change and in total & in total denial about being racist/sexist.homophobic


    Also, if any group is a bunch of snow flakes it's the hxc rightwingers. "He's not standing for the NATIONAL ANTHEM!" "this is absurd and I will respond with an rational and appropriator response, not to the police brutality thing, this is about not standing when you're supposed to." I will no longer watch any football games ever, of any team, until the end of time. I also will post a video of me burning all my NIKE Shit and post it to both Parlor and YouTube.

    God, it's so awful how deep seated the racism is that a peaceful protest for police brutality, brutality that is so blatant and in your face but nothing really being done about it. He knew it would get people's attention but unfortunately it pissed them off so much that it took the focus off of the main issue he was protesting. People were more pissed off at a black man kneeling for the National Anthem than they were when Trump said he likes to sexually assault women.

    Also, right wingers claim to be all about personal rights but they are against abortion and gay marriage.....but don't get me started on that mess. That's a whole other thread right there.

    HOLY RETARDO TYPO! I have quite a few typos, dammit.

    Conversations work better when you don't use a hyperbole to discuss something that wasn't even true.

    Example: Biden is gonna take away the 2nd amendment, he's going to take our guns!

    Literally, do you think Biden is gonna go door to door and get your guns from your house? Oh he's just going elimanite one of the amendments to the constitution? Do you know how difficult that would be, they literally would have to add a new amendment to alter that. At least they had to that with prohibition. One of the amendments banned alcohol in the US then a couple of amendments later they said, "this former amendment is no longer valid". I always thought it was funny that rather than just removing the amendment they kept it but created a whole new one that explained how the other one was no longer valid.

    Our household has 2 firearms and I am not concerned at all someone is going to make me hand them over. I think guns are cool and even badass but I wouldn't keep buying guns and gun accessories like some ppl do. I have a friend who was in the Army and when he got out, he had nice ass guns like AK47 (yes plural) AR15 SCAR, silencer and scope accessories, several pistols. It was impressive to look at but I wouldn't spend my money on that. Lol, i asked him about it recently and... looks like i didn't finish. he had sold them al cuz expect for the pistol because he needed the money.

    Do you meet people like that much?

    I ask as I never meet people like that, so I assume it's a media meme.
