It won't surprise me if "political affiliation" starts being included in law, if Trump wins in 2020 look for it to become federal law. Fools have made it so targeted anti-personal protest like was done in the past won't be able to happen without breaking the law.
Here is the problem at some point your guy or girl gets in power. And the other side wants to protest and now they can't either.
Imagine right wingers chasing an Obama cabinet official and there family from a restaurant.
It's wrong no matter who it is done too, it is essentially political persecution. And if this carries on less people will want to serve in government positions because they fear what will happen to them and there families.

It should be enough to say "don't discriminate against people merely because of who they are." Sadly, that did not prove to be true, so we are trying to deal with these problems with an ever growing laundry list spelling out to us who we have to treat fairly.

DC already has the "political affiliation" protections so your idea has precedent.

Hard to see how it would be enforced though. It would certainly change the face of ATS.

We've reached a point where punishing people by how they think is acceptable.

Free expression is dying.

So if you don't think appropriately, you suffer the consequences.

And this why politicians are voted in and out of office. If there is criminal activity, then there is due process of law. But to harass a person because they got to eat?

Just cannot wait until the USA adopts Citizen points like China.

I think the key is that in times of great turmoil and change, the best laid plans can go to crap. I do make the assumption that what we are seeing is intentionally manipulated, and in that, escalation and ramping up further would simply be a matter of course.

I believe this needed to happen because the progressive mindset is, perhaps, the best equipped to fully utilize and implement changing technologies in a way that leads to revolutionary cultural and societal change. I don't think its ever been about a New World Order, I think its all about maintaining the rough structures that have been in place since feudalism reigned supreme (heh).

Now, as far as categorization, I think the problem is that its becoming "generic in terms of specific actions/reactions."

I feel its about time society and culture as a whole needs to undergo a sea of change, for a variety of reasons but largely because of technology. I think the reality is that our progress can lead to an unfathomably cooperative form of anarchy and the very notion is so threatening to some existing structures that that impetus must be guided away from anything but two flavors of statism. The foundation has been laid for one end of the spectrum (the "left") and now I think we will start to see it more and more from the other end (the "right").

Rather than being the culmination of perfect planning, I see it more as a last ditch effort to avoid the creation of a novel society and culture unlike anything we have seen before. Then again, perhaps I am the fool for holding the notion that even if the fabled Utopia isn't achievable, that never means we can't work towards it.

Political affiliation will become another protected group, and we will lose a little more of our 1st amendment rights. Because millenials are freaking idiots and were never taught how to act.


This is turning into an uncivil war!

Indeed! I literally couldn't have said it any better and probably not as well.

What I often neglect or miss or forget is that groups of people can take on a kind of communal personhood as well. Whether we evolved or were engineered that way, we see the dynamics of group behavior can be as complex as that of individuals. Further all groups seem to have two basic modes of operation ... subserviant coorperation and riot carefully managed using discrete techniques that are not that distinct from ... managing any herd.

How do the few or the one maintain control over the many?

This is the overt significance of our old friend the all-seeing-eye-in the pyramid.

I'm at work and don't have time for a more fulsome response. Thanks for taking the time.

At the risk of going wayyy off topic.. I think both the issue and solution lie in our perception and sense of scale.

Until technology like the telephone, and eventually the internet, we existed in a sphere that had a size and scale we could know, understand, and even "grok."

Now, we are dealing with things on a scale that don't have much meaning to us outside of being able to examine the numbers. Our neurology can't cope, but it needs to maintain coherence all the same. In between the actual reality of the scale and scope of a thing, and our perception of it, lies grounds that are fertile for manipulation.

I have my own ideas about solutions and avenues, but many revolve around consciously changing parts of our Cultural Story. I'm not sure we have ever actually done that..

One example would be greed. Eliminating this tendency is a fools errand, and I'm not sure its wise in the first place. The issue is in how we satiate that greed. In order to improve our lot in life, we are faced with a prisoners dilemma.

However, the possibility that this improvement can not only be achieved similarly through vastly different means, but to a much greater extent, is simply not considered. Even if it is, we don't really have a framework in place to fully realize the potential.

In my opinion, things like a healthy, educated population with unfettered access to technology would actually result in a greater satiation of greed than our generations old story. BUT! Only if we have the framework in place to take advantage of the change. Simply enacting "free healthcare, education, and internet access" is a recipe for disaster.

The issue as it pertains to this topic, and those like it, is that the discussion is nearly never about how. It focuses on either full support or rejection of the ideal, with nary a word on the vast disparity between avenues of action.

Pam Bondi is totally corrupt. She kept Florida out of the Trump University lawsuit after Trump gave her a contribution. Justice was denied Florida residents by this swampy pay for play deal.

Yes I agree it comes down to discipline for sure. I was mainly expressing what I went through and the feelings about it throughout my younger years. Bottom line though is discipline which usually needs some kind of but not always reward/consequence attached.

Someone is going to get hurt if this keeps up.



What is insightful is that no Democrat in power is publicly speaking out that this behavior is not OK. It sets a very bad example. We are about to see the Jerry Springer show as the new normal.

that has been their narrative this whole time. Even the ats members never seem to condemn the violence... It's nothing new.

They don't distance themselves because they condone it. Their silence is consent. Yet they have the nerve to scream and cry when someone steps on the gas at these violent criminals.

But even here where ignorance would be denied they shamelessly consent to this type of behaviour because they obviously enjoy it as entertainment. And they dare to identify as human beings and somehow believe they have ANY credit for their words on this site while they choose to childishly condone the tempertantrums of others simply because it serves their divisive agenda

You're doing what you're accusing others of doing; is that really the way you want to take it?

Does that even make good sense? Think about it a minute.

The extremists want us to call each other Nazis.



1st page and you have made two very good observations. Kudos!

This is divide then conquer. With rabid animals, they end up being put down. If people turn into rabid animals it will end bad for all of us not just the ones that get hurt. The Marxist plan all along was to make us take ourselves out

Just think, it will only get worse and inevitably spread to anyone that is a supposed conservative supporter and people that love any perceived patriotic imagery. This being so close to July 4th, it will not be pretty if no one tries to knock common sense into these morons.




The ones who are Dem's and have repeatedly pretended to have the moral high ground are the ones assaulting everyone, gaslighting people and generally acting disgusting.


Now, that is what I think is the truth.

As a politician, you are the PR actor for a bad system. Everyone is figuring out it's rigged.

How about quit rigging the system?

I don't have people protesting me.

Why?

I don't rip people off.

No, we must never quit rigging it, let's just make a police state.






They aren't protesting a rigged system. They are taking political action solely for the sake of political rivalry.


Yes they are and they don't care who gets hurt or how far they fall short of doing something useful for the citizens, they just want a WIN over their rival like on Friday Night Lights!

No.

I see this, surprisingly enough, much as Gryphon sees it. It's incitement to riot, or however you want to define it. It doesn't rise to the level of treason, not even remotely.

It truly is a mindset. I was a crack addict and yes, it seemed like everyone I came across was as well - because degenerates 'know their own" so to speak. On "That 70's Show" when Donna 'did it' with Eric, it seemed like she had a sign on her head (same thing when I lost my big V) - it's the vibes YOU put out that create your reality.
I don't post much at all, but your analogy is spot-on.
BTW am better now with a good job and life. It's hard to wrench yourself out of the mindset most of all

Bless you in your journey. We all have something we don't like in our past unless we are saints. I think those have do die to get it, like a lot of our real hero's protecting our freedom.
