Spare me the faux outrage. As long as you can keep paying $250 for a laptop, you could care less about Chinese people.

This especially pisses me off coming from you.



i don't have to ask permission from you to do, write or think like I do. Stop being an authoritarian and accept the fact that you don't have control over other people. You don't like my threads then don't read them or post in them... I am not here to do your bidding... What pisses me off is stupid authoritarians like you wanting to control people...

The west needs to look in its own backyard before pointing fingers and judging other countries that dont wish to commit cultural hari kari by allowing people to subvert its way of life


But this is exactly what happens in far left regimes, including nazi Germany.. Political opponents were sent to re-education camps, or to psychiatric wards for having a difference of opinion. The left around the world seem to want the same thing and we can see many instances of them calling for this sort of "dictatorship." How many in the left, including left-wing media and leftwing politicians have called to silence all conservative voices? To only allow left-wing programming to be heard, and to suppress all freedom of speech that is against "the left-wing agenda"? If the left wins in the U.S., we will turn into yet another left-wing dictatorial regime, where your free speech is suppressed despite false claims that you will be free.

What we see in China, Venezuela, Cuba, etc is what the left-wing elites, including the left-wing media, want in the U.S.


Just a minor technicality, but the Nazi's were extreme right wing.

The Chinese dictatorships abuse of minorities, or people who think differently, is well documented. The Chinese are on the brink of creating a robot population, regulated by social scores and controlled by propaganda and nationalism. The only way for the Chinese Communist Party to stay in power is to subvert human rights on a grand scale.

Those who think China is some sort of force for good need their heads examined.

I've been showing these history-rewriting posts to my mother and her husband. She was born in 1941 and he was born in 1934. They both lost family members during the war.
At first they both burst out in laughter, followed by disbelief. Then they got a bit upset and concerned about what they are teaching kids these days.
Needless to say, they'd give anyone a right (pun intended) piece of their mind who would spout such nonsense in their face.

Far right. Far left. They are both the same nationalistic, controlling and authoritarian. The salutes may be different, but the end goal is the same - the erosion of civil liberties and rights, and the imposition of a single ideological mindset.

The Nazis were far right and facist. People get confused by the work "socialism" in the the words "Nazi Party" (National Socialist German Workers' Party).

Far left politics are hardly better than far right. Marxism–Leninism (Soviet) and Maosism and the evolved Communist Party of China, have been built on the eradication of millions of people who got in the way, minorities, people with difference etc... Just like the Nazis in fact.

In the comfy developed world, the terms left and right mean different things.

China wants their citizens to view the state as God, so they've been going after those who are religious... Primarily the Uyghurs, who are Muslim.

This thread stinks of not letting a good crisis go to waste, and trying to hijack the outrage for one's own political causes.

The extreme right and left have talked about taking rights from the other group. Both are guilty, and we've seen statements from our own members on the extreme proposing such idea's.

If there were a sizable proportion of the population who believed in godzilla, and those people started violently forcing their rules on you because they thought that your actions were going to anger the giant lightning breathing reptile, and bring his wrath down on everybody, how would you want those people dealt with?

And then one of them writes a book claiming that these words are inspired by our lord godzilla, anyone who ignores these words or doesn’t believe in godzilla, is the enemy.

And then those who believe start claiming that godzilla speaks to and through them. Godzilla cured my cancer. Godzilla kept my children safe in a car crash. Godzilla helped me find my car keys.

Start believing in King Kong in hopes that he can defeat their Godzilla.

Right-wing as the Europeans define it which is different than how Americans do.

In Europe the central conflict is between socialism and fascism with both poles being defined by extreme authoritarian mindsets marked by central government control of everything and everyone and actually only different in very small technicalities.

In America, the central conflict is between authoritarianism and libertarianism with one pole being an extreme authoritarian mindset marked by central government control of everything and everyone and the other pole being complete anarchy and no government control of anything and anyone.

It pleases people to conflate European and American right wing as the same thing and to assign similar groups to the same poles or labels as though they are a perfect fit when in fact they aren't and don't always vote the way you would expect.

The communists in Europe came up with the terms to distinguish themselves from the fascists back in the day because otherwise, they're pretty interchangeable, and in fact, ANTIFA has its roots in the militant arm of the communist party of Europe, so they're hardly the heroes everyone thinks they are. Their flags, chants, etc., come straight from their pre-WWII ancestors, so lets all cheer for the commies!

What country government is a force for good? America? England?

The truth of the matter is, they are all controlling power hungry sociopaths! It's not about which country has the worst government, it about when are people going to wake up and realise we are all part of their fu#ked up game!

Even in America, the Nazi's and the Fascists were right wing, though (there was some interaction with the European right-wingers, when the US fought against them in WW2).

Antifa is Anti-Fascist, so, not right wing.

I think that Antifa is using the violent opposition and 'black uniforms' tactics of the Nazi's but I don't see them running any gas chambers. I don't see them following a dictatorial leader. I don't see them going into war against the rest of the world. Nor do I see them as espousing that a particular ethnic group is the cause of national woes.

Antifa are more like Communist revolutionaries, violent left-wing extremists.

... and in regard to my avatar, yes, I think that that 'whistle-blowing', such as that done by journalists like Assange, is morally and ethically 'good'. They should not be prosecuted, they should be applauded. In the US, they should be protected by the 1st Amendment, yet it is a sign of the corruption when governments operate contrary to their legal and Constitutional duties.

Regardless of the extremes, there is a vast population who reside firmly in the middle. These are the centrists of most nations and are in the majority.

Extremists on both sides see the masses in the middle as being allied to the opposite wing from themselves. That is because of the extremity of their views and nobody is as 'out on a wing' as they are.

But the truth is that the middle holds. They are the true democracy and they will assert themselves, but only if necessary.
