    I still say the Enlightenment couldn't have happened until Europeans emigrated to North America and learned from the Iroquois.

    And the answer is... ... no, of course not. Of course they don't believe they can keep doing what they're doing indefinitely. Of course nobody but a rabid propagandist trying to portray them as cardboard cutouts could ever say with a straight face that the entire "Left" is giving full dictator Brandon "enthusiastic support".

    Well, I think the "medical proof" is dubious at best. And I also don't buy the narrative that white Europeans are responsible for ending legalized slavery as much as the Enlightenment ideals did. And yes, there is a strong correlation between the Scottish Enlightenment and white Europeans, but they just adopted the ideas earlier. The "race" shouldn't get credit for ending slavery any more than the "race" should get blamed for participating in slavery. It's the ideas that matter. And the idea that all men are created equal, regardless of class, was the most powerful idea to ever grace the human species. It not only ended legalized slavery but led to the exponential growth of human well-being and prosperity. We should be VERY cautious of turning our backs on those ideas! And that includes classifying individuals by their inherent group affiliations.

    At the height of slavery in the US, less than 2% of the white population in the Southern states owned slaves. In the total US, it was closer to 1%. Elites across the globe held slaves, regardless of race. Is there any wonder how this black/white narrative ever took hold rather than an elitist/populist narrative?? The same thing is happening today, but we're still focused on the COMPLETELY wrong narrative!

    That doesn't exactly disprove the proposition. If you don't yet know that the federal government is capable of anything, I don't know what to tell you. Or maybe you have faith in Alex Jones, despite the number of times he has been used to distract people from important events.

    This Bridge Should Have Been Closed Years Before It Collapsed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mn0mC0cbi8 {Practical Engineering | 18 June 2024} Why Fern Hollow Bridge collapsed This is a crazy case study of how common sense can fall through the cracks of strained budgets and rigid oversight from federal, state, and city staff. And the lessons that came out of it aren’t just relevant to people who work on bridges. It's a story of how numerous small mistakes by individuals can collectively lead to a tragedy.

    That's a nice context-dropping snip-job, there (again). I can tell you're a lawyer. I also note (also again) that nothing you have said has been at all responsive to the contention that started this branch of the thread - namely, the claim that "hey won't stop until Jones' 1st Amendment rights are taken away"). Indeed, the very egregiousness of the sanctions now being sought (especially with respect to things such as stripping him of his social media presence and destroying his ability to "promote new business ventures") speaks in favor of that claim (with the supposed egregiousness of Jones' conduct serving as a convenient and face-saving fig leaf for that motivation). They are not seeking merely to recover damages (compensatory, punitive, or otherwise). One does not seek to impair another's ability to do tings such as "promote new business ventures" if one's primary concern is to actually recover damages from that other. They are seeking to squelch Jones completely, and for reasons having nothing to do with any "egregiousness" of the originating defamation, or with the recovery of damages for such.

    One has no more right to "travel freely" into or across improved land that one does not own or for which one has not been granted a right-of-way, easement, or other such instrument , any more than one has a right to "education" or "health care" or such. Whether the (improved) land in question is "public" or not is irrelevant. Stated differently, one no more has a "natural right" to (the availability or use of) improved "public" land than one has a "natural right" to (the availability or use of) "public" schools. It is no more a violation of one's rights to be barred from access to or use of improved but "publicly" owned land (or schools, etc.) than it is a violation of one's rights to be barred from access to or use of privately owned land (or schools, etc.) in the absence of any previously established contractual rights-of-way, easements, etc. Ideally, "public" (i.e. socially collectivized) land, schools, etc. would not exist at all. But they do - and their existence does not create or conjure up any "rights" that would not otherwise exist in their absence. Rights do not come into or go out of existence contingent upon whether something is "public" or not. Any notion that they do is pinko-commie nonsense (which is why "progressive" leftists are so enamored of "open borders").

    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
