    Yes, in the letter they suggest making sure the home owners insurance is up to date. Those sending the letter should make sure their life insurance is up to date.

    Actually "the streets" are exactly where this battle belongs. Only problem is that these lefties have managed to get most of the right to coalesce around the kops. Whether this is by design or sheer dumb luck the only way the police state will grow is with the backing and encouragement of the WASP population. Kop worship was waning what with beating and killing WASP's and their dogs, maiming babies etc....Then this BLM bullshit took off sending the WASPs scampering back to their suburban enclaves whimpering for the kops to protect 'em from the hoodrats and their army... This "fight" needs to be between the hoodrats and the WASP's and it needs to be bloody and barbaric, kops need to be forced to take sides or stand down, both sides need to test each others mettle and resolve without relying on the government to back their play. It will come to that and I'd rather settle the issues than leave them for my progeny.

    Stealing the Motte: Critical Social Justice and the Principle of Charity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMUzdrQi0yA Subscribe to this podcast on SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, YouTube, or by RSS. There is a rhetorical strategy called the “motte and bailey” that is getting increasingly famous lately. This is because it is one of the central tools of the Critical Social Justice movement. In that strategy, named after a kind of castle, a highly defensible “motte” position, like “we just want to treat people more fairly,” is maintained while also pushing a more radical “bailey” position, like “we need to radically remake our school systems so that no one can fail.” Activists advance the bailey and, when pressed on it, retreat to the motte until scrutiny and pressure go away, at which point they return to the bailey. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, your host James Lindsay explores the principle of charity in debate and dialogue in the context of the motte-and-bailey rhetorical strategy. His goal is to explain how the game of critical theories is not the same game the rest of us play in broadly liberal societies. In fact, the critical game seeks to disrupt and dismantle the liberal game and replace it with its own. Exploiting the principle of charity is one of the most common ways it can achieve this.

    All of which can be encompassed in a simple, two-word phrase favored by the "woke" - and that phrase is "lived experience." "Lived experience" is the distilled essence of "woke" arbitrariness. In fact, I'm going to make this the subject of my next post in the Critical Theory thread. And here it is: The Poverty of "Lived Experiences" A sample:

    https://twitter.com/ConceptualJames/status/1302755699424931840 1302755699424931840 The Poverty of "Lived Experiences" https://newdiscourses.com/2020/10/poverty-lived-experiences/ I. Karamozov (04 October 2020) Political dissidents who get into arguments with Woke Folk over the exact nature of “systems of oppression” will inevitably find themselves confronted by rhetoric of a sort that often catches them off guard. This rhetoric is, by design, meant to paint political dissidents as myopic stooges who are unwilling to “listen to the Lived Experiences of marginalized people,” thus making them unwittingly complicit in systems of oppression. In this essay, we will explore the concept of “Lived Experiences” (capitalized and scare-quoted) as understood by Woke Folk, and why this conceptualization is fundamentally deficient. Political dissidents would be well advised to consider the arguments of this essay with care, as “Lived Experiences” are foundational to Woke Ideology; indeed, dismantling Woke notions of “Lived Experiences” may be the single most effective means of preserving the integrity of liberal democratic institutions from Woke encroachment. Consequently, a firm understanding of the topic and of how to address it when engaging with Woke ideology will be the focus of this essay. Before we can address what the concept of “Lived Experiences” entails, however, we must address its function. As was mentioned in an earlier essay, the empirical claims that are made by Woke Folk seldom survive evidential and analytical scrutiny. This is a problem for ideas in a culture which values such things as evidence and reasoned argument (as opposed to arguments from authority and moral blackmail.) Evidence and reasoned argument are the currency with which ideas earn their right to be taken seriously in liberal democracies. The tenets of Woke ideology, which are in frequent conflict with both, must therefore somehow be made adaptable to an environment which is hostile to dogmatic proclamations of unsubstantiated certainty, and the concept of “Lived Experiences” is the mechanism intended to achieve this.

    Garrison didn't make an "argument," he made a cartoon - a cartoon contrasting Biden's statement about Antifa with the shooting in Denver. The tattoo wasn't being presented as "evidence" of anything. Garrison's implication of Antifa was made via the label on the gun, not via the tattoo. Except for the tattoo, there is nothing in the cartoon that indicates what (if any) actual person or event is being represented. The purpose of the tattoo is to ground the representation in the Denver shooting by Dolloff. The point of the cartoon is that Dolloff (as identified by the tattoo) is Antifa (as alleged by the big red "ANTIFA" label on the gun) - and that Antifa is thus not "just an idea."

    Not only would it be a bad precedent, but it would also be unconstitutional. Any POTUS who tried this would be violating the Constitution. Which means he would have to have himself thrown into Gitmo. Which, of course, no POTUS would actually do. So it wouldn't even work in theory, let alone in reality ...

    Ordered by the President to do what? Summarily toss people into black holes like Gitmo, just because POTUS says so? I don't know what you think about Trump, but do you seriously want a President Biden (or President Harris) to have that kind of power? Do you really imagine that is supposed to be some kind of improvement?

    Right now its clear that statist secular humanism are effectively the law of the land. And ever since the 14th amendment the states are not allowed to do anything different.

    Its impossible for any standard of law to be neutral. That's the ultimate issue. And every idea of freedom that you hold dear, even if it is at some point abused or twisted, ultimately originates in Christianity.
