    LOL Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you. If I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

    Based on our respective miserable experiences in high school, where learning was actively discouraged, my wife and I have home-schooled our children. Homeschooling has definitely been the right choice for us. However, homeschooling isn't for every family. One of my son's friends, around the same age, was also home-schooled. He doesn't know anything about history, can't do basic algebra, and thinks the apostrophe is used to make words plural. He's a bright kid, but he hasn't been taught anything. It's up to the parents to make homeschooling successful.

    Antidepressants are used to get people high and disable their natural Mental Defense Mechanisms. Kind of like brainwashing someone, where just one of several techniques applied is Sleep Deprivation. I think what has happened is that many peoples Defenses have been overwhelmed and coerced to the point where those people feel that the faults of society are their own. Our society today accepts no responsibility for the consequences of its actions. You better learn to manage your money. No no, youre broke because you just cant manage your own money. What really happened is money itself has been weaponized against the individual. And money is only one of a thousand faults of society that constantly blame the individual, not society. Did you fail school, or did school fail you? There are plenty of times to understand why you got a bad grade. Didnt care so you didnt try. Thats fine. There are plenty of valid reasons why a person might not bother doing homework. Subject isnt interesting or useful, or perhaps they are preoccupied with 3 jobs just to put food on the table. Well, food comes first. Then the Bad Grade is issued. The Bad Grade is just negative reinforcement for ignoring demands to place the values and commands of authority before your own needs and desires. You NEVER grade the teacher or the institution, which makes it a one way street of accepting every opinion of society as your own fault. This is very similar to the stuff that Zippy tends to write about Money. You should just accept society for what it is instead of understanding both society and our money system have some serious faults which not only destroys the individual, but shifts all blame from the system to the victims. The psychological tactic is more like Group Psychology Stockholm Syndrome. The thing I cant stand about the drugs they issue is it is yet another level of bullshit on top of a mountain of bullshit. There is a major Symbolic issue with the drugs. When a person swallows the pill, they are swallowing responsibility for how society has failed them as being their own fault. The only real solution for many people with Depression is to recognize they ARE victims, and REJECT the Symbol that the pills represent, which is Responsibility. Sociopaths twist everything so their victims learn to blame themselves. Psychology is another level of bullshittery. Schools teach Psychologists that Conspiracy Theorists are WRONG to think the way they do. Being a Conspiracy Theorist is nothing more than the minds attempt to defend itself for problems which are NOT the fault of the individual, which IS healthy. It is NOT your fault that they are thieves. It is NOT your fault that the Nazi shot your family. It is NOT your fault for failing school. You did NOT fail school, and were NOT irresponsible with money. The idea is very very deep in the minds of Psychologists and Psychiatrists that rejecting responsibility for the faults of a manipulated society that their entire Mental World View defends that idea at every single turn. Victims of Sociopaths internalize guilt and blame for the problems caused by the Sociopaths because they are manipulated to do so. Shrinks are unable to recognize they have been just as manipulated. They are also taught to reinforce the Passing Judgement of Authority of an individual back to the individual because the Shrinks themselves refuse to see the world for what it truly is, fucked up, and their own involvement only makes things WORSE, not better.

    Agree- and that's all I use it for. Getting political on social media is never a good idea. Seems many have forgotten about becoming "grey men" & keeping a low profile where necessary. I also find it interesting how much of this is now happening after Zuckerberg had to appear before Congress- pretty sure there's been some major influence from that arena.

    The smallest minority is the Individual. If Facebook did not have the power to influence elections, I would not care about its censorship. Due to its size however, it has a major influence on elections. Allowing Facebook to take over Elections with Censorship, you might just as well put the entire election in the hands of Zuckerberg himself. Soon enough, ALL sites will be Facebook. Facebook will continue its actions, and ALL sites that Facebook does not like will have its links buried. EU is already planning to make it MANDATORY to have a LICENSE to post a Link to another Website or quote anything written on another website because they do not understand how the internet works. These continued actions world wide that Centralizes ALL forms of meaningful communication. They use Censorship because IT WORKS. Belief Money Violence

    He was not caught as a British spy- this originated as conjectures from British know-nothings who have tried to interpret Franklin's letters/documents in whatever manner. Franklin was a member of the colonies' Committee of Secret Correspondence. He dealt with many aspects of the Revolution, including getting France to help the colonies. I am sure he had a handle on all sides of the game, as any spymaster would and should. http://www.historynet.com/benjamin-franklin-revolutionary-spymaster.htm

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.

People are angry, but they are often in denial about it. They know they're angry, but they don't want to admit they're angry
