    If any one of them had caught a Congress-person, it’s not projecting that they would have held that person(s) hostage or worse. Then it would have been close to life sentences.
    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    Yes we had a female president that looked identical to Conan O'Brien. She was hugely popular president, approval rate of 88% and she was aboot human rights and supported LGBTQ community, quit the church etc. you get the picture. A bit different from Murican sociopaths.

    I watch news and more from several different western countries etc everyday and this is just a narrative being drawn up across the board that the right is somehow less about human rights or any rights or values at all etc...but nothing is ever specified or exactly defined as to what this means or any examples or evidence given. To me, it seems we all care the same about these things to the same degreee.....it's just that one side has been given free reign through the dominance of media to paint the other side as the devil, in an ever increasingly and aggressive way, and a great portion of the viewers are just swallowing up whatever is presented.

    I'm honestly looking into the possibility of going east, possibly living in a country that recently got it's freedom and truly appreciates it. I hope I'm wrong but see much of the same playing out all over the west and think it will eventually end up in some sort of western civil war the way everything looks with censorships, criminal decay in major cities, mass influx of mid east cultures, and just about everything turning more centralized/totalitarian. Eventually passive ppl on the right will have to say enough is enough and what happens then?

    Enough seroious writing and back to gaming.

    Yeah, but now with all these platforms to connect and come together, we sort of did the opposite. Human nature as well perhaps. GN O35.

    The main issue is that the media is helping many form this opinion. Despite what is being shown online and in the media, everyday life (outside c19) is pretty much the same from what I've seen. Its only on social media do I see the division you mention. I do think the political landscape post Trump has changed for the worse but everyday Americans agree on far more than they disagree about and aren't having hand to hand combat fights in their local Wal-Marts. YMMV.

    DIDnt clear it up, you feel the same about looters, junkies, etc ?

    I’m saying this because eomrat called them delusional, if they are then you must treat them the same as other health issues or are you just a biased slime????

    Well, we did just have 1/6 happen so that's a safe bet.

    The problem is that one side will not sit down and calmly discuss and figure things out, but have already decided the "truth" of every matter beforehand and act almost like a religious cult condemning those who do not believe the same and attempt to disqualify opposing views by calling people nazis, conspiracy theorists etc. So any meaningful debate/conversation is shut down from the start, and if some does arise it is swiftly taken down and censored.
    Just say the American left wing. It's OK and you'd be 1/2 right.

    Seeing it mainly play out on social media and platforms doesn't make it less serious for me since this is where ppl exercise their free speech, organize and share ideas today.
    While I think the division is real (but limited to the far wings) I don't think it's actionable as most Americans just want to live their lives. What you see is the loud minority who have found a way to broadcast. Its the modern day town square. IDK maybe I'm just too naïve.

    Several alternative news channels were shut down over here as well in the last few years (once in a big sweep after leftist ministers had a closed meeting with big tech executives), and ofc it just makes many ppl angry. Some nations are taking action now against the big tech censorships, but only a handful.

Hopefully I'm wrong.
    I'm not there so IDK.

    If Twitter wants to enforce their TOS that's on them. It is not a right to post there no matter how much people wrongfully cite the 1st amendment. I'm against gov't telling businesses what they have to do provided they aren't breaking any laws. Anyone is free to make their own site (Parlor) and take their ideas to that platform. Hell, we can't even discuss PED here on a bodybuilding site...MY FREEDOMS!!

    It is the same tendencies and similar situations in several western countries, including my own, and it's not just an american thing or the american left. That's what I wanted to bring up earlier. Everything is connected now. In terms of pure hatred, that might be from a small number of fringe people which doesn't affect everyday lives of most, but this is not the decay I focus on here, but rather freedom of speech (and other issues) for a large portion of the voter base in various western nations. That's not really a trivial matter or something happening to a few loonies. Some aspects of it may have gone further over here since our legal protections are not as great, and many have been fired or excluded from unions simply because of how they voted.

    I would have agreed with you in the past about the tech companies, but they have become so large and important to communication and free speech that being excluded from them can be devastating and obviously skew election results. They do have a sort of monopoly and probably didn't end up being these giants purely by having a superior offerering.

    Several other aspects you don't have to worry about but that we get through the EU also keeps adding to this ever growing stew of less freedoms, boiling hotter each year. Just one example is that our head of state signed on to take a giant loan, putting our future generations in debt..to then, thru the EU, redistribute it to other countries like Spain and others who are in turn looking into universal basic income for their citizens.

    I think you and I are in agreement about what's happening but are viewing it through a different lens. You sound more pessimistic while I'm leaning towards optimism that these things will work themselves out - eventually.

    The big tech argument is one to have.

    You guys are totally missing something, work, the American has work in our DNA but working independently, not working hard and letting gubmint tell you what to do with yo money.

    The 90's and early 2000's were great because everyone had jobs, you take jobs away like gubmint and big,big corp is doing, all they do is make people insane, the country needs more job creators that can protect their business, THIER business, not Gubmint intrusion business.

    If you don't believe me, threaten to take away a coal miners job, see what happens.

    You just answered your own question. I never said the country was based on coal mining, but people have lost jobs (an identity of independence) not only are they losing jobs, but gubmint are looking to provide them with legal drugs = disaster, the sane man works for the drug!
    That what we did in the 90's, we may of been drunk and stoned, but we worked and were motivated to work for those booze and weed, keeping our sanity in check.

    Use your imagination, maybe look up the occupation and see what else they have to fall back on that is as lucrative.

    Thousands of coal workers lost jobs. Where will they go?

    As the long-shrinking coal industry hemorrhages jobs, states and local groups are seeking new ways to transition to a lower-carbon economy without leaving coal workers behind.

    Dozens of coal workers stormed the Senate office building during the Maryland legislative session earlier this year to protest a plan that would phase out the state’s remaining six coal-fired power plants.


    "stormed the Senate office building" do they get thrown in prison too, I guess JT says "fuk 'em" too?
