  • Every time you hear the word democracy, just mentally substitute oligarchy. Everything makes so much more sense afterward. We need to protect our democracy? No, we need to protect our oligarchy. Local news is a danger to democracy? No, it's a danger to the oligarchy.

    Don't just replace Democracy with oligarchy in your mind, replace it in real life.

    In context, you are talking about American dumbocrazy, as understood by their Dumbocrazic Party. The USA is not the whole world, just saying.
    "The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable." - H. L. Mencken

    Consider the arrogance of these people. Consider what the past 40 years have looked like.
    • Iran-Contra
    • Danny Casolaro being suicided
    • Gary Webb being suicided
    • DynCorp trafficking kids in Bosnia
    • 9/11
    • The Iraq war predicated on Colin Powell and Robert Kadlec's anthrax hoax
    • The disastrous war in Afghanistan
    • Wikileaks
    • The Snowden Leaks
    • The CIA torture report
    • The CIA's arming of "moderate rebels" in Syria
    • The Panama Papers
    • Jeffrey Epstein suiciding himself in prison
    • Ghislaine Maxwell being convicted for trafficking little kids to no one
    After all of this, they have the temerity to whine that we're "undermining trust in institutions" with "fake news".

    I can't believe that the liberals are censoring us from bragging about all the people we owned.
    The destruction of the American middle class was deliberate. They outsourced all our jobs to China and destroyed our living standards. They made certain that kids come out of college with a head full of divisive woke nonsense. They also ensured that they come out of college with tens of thousands of dollars in debt so they can't start a family or have a life of their own, and set them up with terrible low-wage service jobs so they're forced to live hand-to-mouth. All of this was set up by billionaire tax-evaders so they could profit immensely off of labor arbitrage. Bring the jobs back. Bring the good wages back. Bring the middle-class living standards back. That's all that matters.

    Considering the fact they took away abortion rights and they're going after gay people next its probably going to get a looot worse before ir gets better
    There are a whole lot of people out there who are deeply invested, emotionally, in their governments. That's the biggest barrier to waking people up. These people get a dopamine hit from the rapturous experience of partaking in a mythical liberal democracy that doesn't exist. The general public's chief assumption is that their countries and their institutions are led by rational people who have their best interests in mind. Their faith in this idea borders on religious. It does not stand up to rational scrutiny, at all. I grew up with 9/11, Colin Powell's ridiculous anthrax vial, the War on Terror and the CIA torture reports from Gitmo, the Arab Spring, the Jeffrey Epstein revelations, and about a thousand other political scandals. I have very little faith in government to begin with. I see an anti-government stance as intrinsically noble.
    I can't help but laugh every time someone blubbers on about protecting democracy. What democracy? Where is it? Representative democracy has largely been supplanted by managerialism and Soviet-style committees. Our representatives only pretend to represent us, while letting armies of unelected civil servants do all the real legwork of setting policy. What the civil servants cannot do, they outsource to contractors. The tasks contractors cannot do, they give to quangos and think tanks. So, I say again, what democracy? What are people even talking about? Our elected officials exist to do one thing and one thing only. To stand up in front of a camera, make grandiose speeches, and make you think you have a choice in how society is run, when you manifestly do not.
    I ate a scorpion. It was very, very crunchy and tasted mostly like chitin, with a very faint note of shellfish, like shrimp.
    If I were President, I would immediately and savagely gut all federal agencies. All of them. Every single one. Their pieces would be strewn across the landscape. I'd sack everyone at the FDA, EPA, ATF, CDC, FBI, CIA, all the three-letters. All of 'em. Throw 'em away and start over. The experiment didn't work. And you know what? Everyone would love me for it. Right before my head got opened up by a CIA assassin's rifle bullet, of course.

    The whole point of Western-sponsored color revolutions and the promotion of nonviolent resistance by so-called pro-democracy NGOs is to take power away from "dictators" like Muammar Gaddafi and Bashar Al-Assad, and give it to the IMF, World Bank, BIS, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, WEF, and the rest of the supranational vultures so we can induct more people into the imperialist Anglo-American cult of neoliberal consumerism and open up new markets to sell more Funko Pops and iCrap. We literally have people dismantle their own governments just so we can control them by selling them a new identity based around brand-worship.

    You know its possible to be opposed to rank, unfettered globalism and dictators (no quotes that's exactly what they are) simultaneously? Also Gaddafi worked with Nazis like Otto Skorzeny after the War, not exactly losing sleep over him being dead

    I didn't say dictators were good. However, it strikes me as shockingly immoral how our countries push for regime change at any cost while pretending it's for people's own good, only to end up creating humanitarian crises as millions of people suddenly become homeless and/or lose the benefits of stable governance. This should be recognized as a form of colonialism, which it fundamentally is. Nations don't colonize each other with people any more. How do you colonize a full world with more bodies? Instead, they colonize each other with businesses, with organizations, with ideologies. This "invisible colonization" is perhaps just as pernicious, because it aims to convert the values of the native populations to be acceptable to the victors.
    Any time there is a bipartisan revolt against the psychopathic Owner class, like Occupy Wall Street, the ultra-wealthy are keen to divide it with identity politics immediately. The rich blubber on about CO2 and the environment and green jobs, while they base all of their wealth-hoarding on a foundation of consumerism and insane pollution. The population have been cajoled into thinking that this is a problem of communism versus capitalism, when actually, it's a problem of psychopathic neoliberalism versus everyone else. Why do the Right think they're capitalists when they work skilled trades with their hands and own no stocks? Why do the Left think they're communists when left-wing activist groups are funded by donations from huge banks, retail companies, and silicon valley giants? Nobody likes to think they've been duped so thoroughly, and yet, here we are.

    Regulators do not regulate. We have a bureaucracy that actively protects a predatory overclass that is despoiling our planet and lining their pockets; a vast clerisy of unelected "experts" whose job it is to tell us it's for our own good and we should keep our noses out of it. That is the shape of the world today, and if people don't see it, they're blind.
