Isn't anarchist organizer a contradictio in terminis?

Anarchy means 'no rule/government'. i.e. All persons/organizations/institutions are of absolutely equal authority. It can be viewed as a case of 'applied voluntaryism'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voluntaryism

Anarchy does not mean chaos or disorder (The term makes no statement regarding those things. Historical cases of anarchic systems [eg. interwar period Barcelona https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Revolution_of_1936 ] were as organized as any other society).

Anarchy does not preclude any manner of voluntary organization, collaboration, coordination, etc.

-scheherazade

a real anarchist wants to adhere to no rule other than their own.
dude is more of a communist than a anarchist

the simulation aspect of this series of games is completely out of whack with reality

and despite being the title, you start of your games with no political support despite winning the said elections. Thus making the game ridiculously hard to win in a logical way

and everyone wants to assassinate you

Dev def needs to stretch the timeline to decades instead of such short intervals. For now, you can solve the HIV epidemic in Africa within 5 years, but you won't get reelected....

what that we want is a consistent enforcement of rules

so far, what is plain to all is that the status quo is these rules are only enforced against so-called right-wing voices

well, there are equally lots of loony bins on the left and center as well. They should all be Banned as per precedent set.

governments , NGOS and think tanks too for obvious lies. (ie on Syria, Russia etc, take your pick, there is always bs being hawked as truth.)

The answer isn't strictly gun control, this country is in desperate need of a mental health overhaul. Much like the country's infrastructure, it's well past time it had a national focus on it. Unfortunately, this administration is probably about the worst to have any hope of getting anything done. It's focus is on drama, not the needs of it's suffering citizens. Kids are graduating high school without the skills to deal with life and the stresses it brings. As they get older, they tend to focus inward and become cynical and bitter. Then the empathy and compassion disappears. Then they hear people like Alex Jones who convinces them that everything and everyone is out to get them and that there's no hope. A person with no hope is dangerous. They feel they have nothing to lose and thus, you get situations like mass shootings. Sure, you can take the guns off the streets but you need to take care of the reason they're using the guns to begin with at the same time and until those are addressed, this will continue to happen over and over again...

=-Rigs-=

Certainly we need to do more to help people with mental illness, and ensure that it's covered by insurance. That being said, when mentally ill people commit crimes, the mental illness only factors 7.5% of the time:

In a study of crimes committed by people with serious mental disorders, only 7.5 percent were directly related to symptoms of mental illness, according to new research published by the American Psychological Association.

these are serious physical manifestation of mental illness (Schizophrenia etc.. What about the 'soft mental illnesses', like poor anger management , depression, compulsive behavior etc?

i personally believe that the problem is much larger . ( a study on this would benefit everyone on either side of the fence )

Also, the solution is glaringly obvious: gun control.

Prohibition works. That's why there are no drugs or prostitutes in America.

Works for guns. Look at Europe and East Asia. I've already provided links and stats.

The problem is one of false equivalency. Neither Asia nor Europe started their countries or developed their countries where personal arms ownership were enshrined in law. At this point, there are so many long guns, pistols, and revolvers in the wild that any sort of prohibition would be equivalent to closing the door to the barn not only after the horses had all left but also after it had burned to the ground.

Moreover, you would need to repeal the Second Amendment which at this point would be a rather quixotic affair. That doesn't even include the long drawn out process of actually trying to collect those firearms out in the wild which would more than likely bring up a lawsuit, or lawsuits, based on the 4th Amendment which would need to wend its way all the way up to the Supreme Court. Should that somehow get struck down, you can bet someone is going to file a lawsuit based on the 9th Amendment and that is going to be a much trickier case to win in favor of a new Prohibition.

But, let's say that the stars all aligned in your favor and a new Prohibition is enacted and enforced. First, you're not going to get even a majority of the firearms in the wild because private sales are not held to the same registration standards as a store. Then you have to deal with the enormous amounts of CNC machines out there because they can be used to create new firearms, let alone 3D printers which is yet another cornucopia of either parts or straight up fully complete units.

It's just flatout not going to work in any real sense in a country founded upon the idea that a person has the right to own a firearm without onerous government intervention and the billions of dollars from SIGs, PACs, and private donations that have and will continue to go in to upholding that right.

Not saying it won't be hard. But we're pretty much the only industrialized nation that hasn't figured this out yet. Other countries have, including ones with traditionally high gun ownership like Australia, Canada, and Switzerland. We've tackled difficult issues before as a nation. The rights of women and minorities have drastically improved over the past several decades as attitudes and laws have changed. Ditto toward smoking. Ditto toward cannabis use.
And attitudes toward gays and gay marriage have swung 180 degrees in less than a decade. Massive change can happen quickly with the right arguments and exposure.

It's already starting to happen with RE to guns: look at how the NRA is losing corporate sponsors and finding itself more isolated.

Canada and Australia are British legacies. Their agency in their government is far less than America's . ( its been a millenia long strategy for the crown/gov to disarm and neuter the pop. Which is why they can get away with mass privatization and still keep the monarchy around today . And for Australia, continue to treat aboriginals the way they do. Replace Aboriginals with Native Indians...there would def. be a civil war in the 20th century)

but the most distinctive difference is the homogeneous nature of Canadian, Australian and Swiss culture and community .

as for why Swiss is so peaceful? Well, same reason as giving everyone a gun in Monaco wouldn't make it Detroit the next year over.

as for less sponsorship for NRA? well it's corporate America these days. All SJW, PC, Race. We can see it in the games. We can see it everywhere.

Drunk driver kills a family of four - We blame the driver, not the car or the alcohol.

That same guy shoots his family - we blame the gun instead of the driver.

Logic.

Also, tell me again how banning guns gets rid of violence. I mean Chicago has the some of the strictest gun laws in the country, and also the most shootings. Dozey

When some douche rams his car into a group of protestors, do we talk about banning cars? I know, insert stupid argument about how guns only do one thing! That'll show me!

I agree that banning guns is not a practical solution, from a logistics and legal standpoint. But this is some Grade A Retard logic man, Fox News commenter tier. Right on par with "Reeeee ban all the guns!"

We put all kinds of controls and requirements on dangerous shit, balanced against the need for said shit to be readily available to people. If all the cars vanished tomorrow, what would happen to our economy? There wouldn't be one anymore. If all the civilian guns vanished tomorrow, what would happen to our economy? Nothing unless you're a gun store owner or gun manufacturer or the NRA. So, given the different role firearms and cars play in peoples daily lives, they are going to have a different view on where that balance sits.

Guns, like cars, or pressure cooker bombs, are a force multiplier. The availability of force multipliers increases the ability of a bad guy to do damage. Some require knowledge and planning, others don't. Some can be put in your pocket, others can't. Some can be easily disposed of to hide evidence, others can't.

I'm not suggesting any particular course of action here, but we've got an unacceptably high gun homicide rate in the US (and homicides in general), and tired cliches about banning cars, knives, and sharp rocks probably aren't part of the solution.

if the political parties agree to funding better outreach, community patrols, and general uplifting of neglected communities, this gun ( and synthetic opioid/pharma) crisis can be solved.

but with the animosity among the democrats and republicans, i don;t see anyone doing anything else then playing to the voters to secure their positions of power for the next election cycle

Just Ban them for all but a few reasons, and put enough tax, checks and paperwork between the punters and the deathsticks and it will be much better.

Existing ones are fine, though a buyback scheme can help thin the herd. Once they are worth 10x as much to purchase legally, the black market will follow and impulse murder/suicide will drop dramatically. You'll still be able to hunt, use on the farm, target shoot and even collect them but you wont be able to go buy one for a weeks pay at the mall. See ALMOST EVERYWHERE ELSE for examples.

But I know you wont do anything, yanks will invade other countries for less than what plentiful cheap firearms do to your populace in a week and and most your leaders are in the pocket of the MiC.

And whats this fix mental health thing? Yes it's underfunded and people need more help then they are getting but you are not gonna prevent this kind of lunacy. Most mentally ill people are not murderers. You want to round up the crazies? Really? I'm pretty sure that ignores even more parts of the original constitution and amendments, most of which are far more useful than the one there to prevent slave rebellions in the late 18th century.

I thought you needed your guns for freedom but the answer you gun nuts go to first is locking people up for pre-crime because they seem a bit unstable. What a joke.

it's about making a mental health checkup as regular and ordinary as a regular quarterly physical health check. There are even less people with sufficient maturity, sensitivity and experience to share these matters with these days, where Twitter and FB has become surrogates.

might actually be real come a couple days time

1. healthcare, especially the lack of mental healthcare and the ridiculous cost involved
2. the still taboo nature of seeking help for (1)
3. self diagnosis and medication

no balanced person would kill for a videogame.

but hell, these aren't sexy prime time topics. So we might never actually have a proper discourse on this , again...

in a country which can barely support VA, there's no way for them to have a proper mental health system

having a CS:GO FPS system is pretty much one of the worse way to go about making a good shooting system

-random bullet spread (still can miss a person at point blank in CS:GO thse days) , random damage, bizarre range and accuracy, bad hit boxes (still can hit a sniper round despite the crosshair not even on the target in CS:GO still), lack of weight and heft, and so many other things wrong with CS:GO which had became institutionalized due to prized tournaments...

People will believe whichever study that confirms their bias. This recent alcohol study is excellent news for teetotalers. And in this thread we know who those are - they've come out of the closet!

they used data from 694 studies to work out how common drinking was and from 592 studies including 28 million people worldwide to work out the health risks.

a study on studies is generally bullshit, and they cannot come up with any conclusion that any amount of alcholol is harmful based on this study of studies since these studies themselves:
  • do not even test this hypothesis.

  • and if we were to take this study of studies as accurate, i might as well continue drinking as i have already drunk before in my life, considering how they insinuate that even a little does harm.
