I try not to listen to evangelist's, or professional victims.

If I had known a few years ago how lucrative being a victim was I would have made some glorious hoax about how I was being hunted down by militant Gamergaters with machetes.

Heh I didn't even bother with a refund, re-sold my ship package for a profit once things started to look grim and never looked back. It's nice being able to say not only did I not get taken for a ride by these guys, I actually made money off their little virtual ship scam.

Funny, but the list of "libertarian government genocides" doesn't return many results.

Might that have something to do with the list of "Libertarian governments" in general being comprised of exactly zero entries? There's never been a libertarian free market. Even the freest markets are heavily regulated and have all kinds of contingencies, and the citizens are still heavily taxed.

The US is about as close as it gets and last I checked our government loves doing a lot of shady awful shit in foreign countries in order to enrich the Military Industrial Complex.

As to the guillotine, I'd rather have that than die slowly to disease because my class isn't allowed healthcare, or to go inside the city walls.

I wish everything revolved around my failed life experiences.

I see Cutter is a small-business-masturbating Libertarian today. I wonder if he'll be back to hardcore Communist tomorrow.

FFS there are a lot of cold, heartless people here.

We have a small population of eToughGuy Libertarians here, most of whom wouldn't last a day if left naked in a garbage dump and forced to "lift themselves up by their bootstraps" in a Libertarian system.

Of course you have to lack any kind of human empathy to be a Libertarian to begin with, so it's not surprising.

I just saw a poll yesterday reporting that among people who voted for Trump, 91% believe he is doing a good job as President. Which is fairly insane because I guarantee you, if the GOP health care bill passes, it will hurt more than 9% of the Trump voters.

Some of that is probably just hardline loyalty to anyone who has an (R) after their name, the rest probably just afraid to admit they got conned by the world's most obvious conman. Maybe when their healthcare is taken away they'll change their minds, but honestly they'll probably just do some mental gymnastics and blame the Democrats.

In Police Stories shooting first is not an option.

Unrealistic. Fuck this game. If I can't murder unarmed virtual civilians and then get acquitted in a virtual court of law, there's no point in even pretending to be a cop.

If they add civil asset forfeiture where I can just take everyones shit just because I don't like the look of them, maybe I'll try it. Or they could make it Municipal Budget Simulator 2017 and I could issue a bunch of bullshit tickets designed to make the city money.

But in all honesty this does look pretty fun...

Expecting Trump to use Google? Too far man!

Read an article today that evidently Trump has no clue what the fuck is going on during the health care discussions and keeps conflating Medicaid and Medicare.

Also, not a good idea to take undeserving swipes at Bezos. He owns the Washington Post.

That's why he was doing it. Someones newspaper writes unflattering story about you? Threaten to raise their taxes. It's weird to think that there was a time when that kind of behavior would have been shockingly inappropriate. Worst part of Trump isn't Trump, but the fact that he's dropped the bar so low that I'll probably never see another competent President in my lifetime.

On that YouTube stunt, I'm not sure what they expect to accomplish by jailing a pregnant widow. Yeah, she's fucking retarded, but her dead boyfriend goaded her into it so he obviously wasn't winning any IQ tests either.

Did you make and frame a fake Time cover for your donny?

#FAKENEWS

Did you see the latest thing with CNN? The people who did the slimy hit job on Shirley Sherrod, and also those ACORN videos, did an 'undercover' video where they got some health producer at CNN to admit they focus on the Russia story for ratings. So the Trumpers are all like, "I KNEW IT. FAKE NEWS!"

Even the heavily edited video doesn't actually have the guy admitting they faked anything, but that's beside the point I guess.

Don't me wrong, cable news is garbage, but the video doesn't actually tell us anything we didn't already know.

People killed by terrorism in Western Europe since 1970

Looks like there's been quite a spike in terrorist activity in the last couple years, and we're certainly on track for another bumper crop of terror attacks in the EU this year. It appears to be back up to the levels in the 80s. Certainly enough to stoke fears in people. Hell, some people in the US (Trumpian fucktards mostly) are afraid of Muslims and all our terrorists are white neckbeards who are mad they couldn't get laid.

You're vastly more likely to be killed by... just about anything in the US, than terrorists. And thats if you include white mass shooters. Only include jihadists and it's basically background noise. In the EU, while there are significantly more terror attacks, it's still not a huge number of deaths.

Ignoring the spike in fear and hate in the EU or pretending it's not an issue is a mistake. It doesn't matter if it's an irrational fear, it will still lead to bad things.


"There's a bigger chance you die in a car accident than by a terrorist attack!" is what your reasoning sounds like. My question: so what? That's a different problem. There are many different problems about all kinds of things. This is another trick you see people like yourself resort to: I talk about problem A, you bring up problem B. It gets us nowhere at all. I talk about muslims (I actually didn't even) that kill for their religious ideals, you talk about white americans who kill because they can't get laid. Two. Different. Problems. One is an assault against our values, the other is the act of a deranged idiot. Both require a different solution.

Do I have the answers? No. Do I think changing the subject all the fucking time helps anyone? Absolutely not.

I don't think we actually disagree. I think you're misunderstanding what I'm saying. I am saying that the statistics themselves aren't as significant as what they represent. Which is, like you said, jihadists. The comparison to the white guys in the US doing shootings is just another example of pointing out how the statistics aren't in line with the level of fear. After all, the whole point of terrorist attacks is to create fear, not achieve a certain body count.

Please post stats of violent crime in those same countries vs ours. Thanks.

Wow you're right. The UK has like 1/4th the homicide rate of the US, and Japan less than 1/10th. Far less rape in the EU as a whole, and waaay less in Japan. Though anecdotally you hear about a lot of perv gropers in subways in Japan so I question that statistic. Oh and the percentage of their population that is incarcerated is much lower as well by a huge amount.

So not only do they kill far fewer suspects, they are far better at reducing crime, and don't throw half the population in prison to do it!
It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that every mook in the UK and Japan does not have ready access to firearms.

Correlation does not imply causation.


Sorry perhaps I needed to put an /s tag. That was the point. That guy was implying that because violent crime rates are higher, cops need to kill more people. That again, is a correlation, not a causative link.

So I responded with an equally facetious comparison.

They also don't have a culture that peddles fear and hate constantly, to make citizens more susceptible to believing whatever new form of BS they create to justify more conflicts and larger security forces for profit (at their expense).

Oh I don't know about that... there's a lot of fear and hate in the EU, and UK in particular. One example: There is a large population of conservative Muslims who are not well integrated. Lots of backlash. Fear of refugees and immigrants is a big deal in the EU.
