    No. 99% of Americans know *nothing* and act on emotion from their "education" or the media.

    They're no better, nor worse, than the most illiterate third worlder.

    We are where we are because of the voting of "real" Americans.

    And the only reason we're better off than many (certainly not all) foreign states is that we don't get bombed; we do the bombing.

    Communism is not the only type of statism.

    Infighting among the different types of American statists has meant that their progress in eliminating liberty has been spread over a wide variety of topics. Still, they've made consistent progress with the help of folks like you.

    Yes, that's right. I can picture our Libertopia right now- hoards of Latin American and Saudis marching down the suburbs of the West, "Hey hey! Ho ho! The minimum wage has got to go! 19th century economics are the way to go! Ho ho! Hey hey!" Different men of religion, race, culture walking hand-in-hand singing kumbaya chanting, "Corporations shall overcome! Corporations shall overcome! Wage slavery for all!"

    PS: No serious institution really cares about abolishing the Federal Reserve, we're thankful at this point to have such an institution- without it you would see a depression worse than that of the 30's. At best you have the Mises Institute that advocates for its abolishment but the opinion is rather fringe in the field of economics. Based upon the other things your types have to say about such matters it makes me much more inclined to side with the mainstream than Alex Jones-esque weirdos.

Contemporary civilization requires generations worth of infrastructure, State intervention, social cohesion, and shared interests & values. Accepting mass immigration or even just any immigration because "freedumb" has to be one of the strangest most half-cocked arguments I've ever come across.

    This isn't the world of 1000 years ago. People travel and mix and trade ideas and goods which benefit everybody. Even ancient tribes migrated and traded. But if you want to live in a log cabin in the forest by yourself you can still do that.

    Global communication just dumbs down culture and appeals to the lowest common denominator. Democracy is merely a game of trying to simplify your snake oil onto a bumper sticker while keeping a steady amount of donor money. Then once in office voting along your party when it's politically convenient for you to do so. Hardly some grand enlightenment of humanity. Right now we don't have your ideal- rather we have one side which promotes globalism, oligarchy, and diversity. On the other side you have people maligned by the people, thrown into jail for expressing their opinions, beaten violently when peacefully assembling together, and censored by mainstream companies, government forces, and social circles. Not some stupid "Hey maaan let's sit down, smoke a blunt and talk about our ideas maaaan" type hippy notion that you're implying. Also, exchanging ideas is not always a good thing- ideas have consequences as I said earlier in the thread. Something that both sides (left & right) have difficulty accepting.

    Strange how Japan, South Korea, Israel, and Hungary are perfectly fine without mass islamic migrations. I suppose the "ideas" of clitorectomies and honor killings have yet to benefit those countries.

    The US doesn't have "mass Islamic migrations" either. They are only about 1% of the population and less than ten percent of immigrants.

    Never said we did but this is also another lame tactic used. In one breath you'll praise diversity and the "hey maaan let's exchange our ideas" type ideal, in the next breath you'll say immigration is a non-issue and immigration rates will consistently remain the same so we shouldn't even be discussing the issue. Famously enough Ted Kennedy said something similar during the passing of the 1965 Immigration Act. Right now massive amounts of immigration have turned California and Virginia into blue-leaning states. If immigration continues consistently (unlikely seeing as how it benefits major religious players, Democratic politicians, and the capitalist donor class. We'll expect more immigration post-Trump if anything) then you're going to see a permanent Democratic majority. Perhaps the GOP will make a come-back, but it won't be in any recognizable form, i.e. one could expect a total overhaul in ideology, fiscal conservatism, and nativist skepticism. How is this beneficial for our interests and our society? I've yet to get a coherent answer from your side and expect none here.

    Unintended side effects of muslim refugees exodus from Syria/Libya and other mideast war zones to Europe?


    ‘Pray for an Islamic Holocaust’: Tens of thousands from Europe’s far right march in Poland

    By Avi Selk November 12

    Thousands gathered in central Warsaw on Nov. 11 for a march organized by radical far-right groups. The march coincided with Poland’s Independence Day. (Młodzież Wszechpolska)

    The official celebration of Poland’s 99th independence day proceeded innocuously, with ceremonies in the capital. There was even a visit from the European Council’s internationalist president, who insisted to Politico that Saturday’s festivities would proceed “with a smile on our face and with joy in our hearts.”
    But for blocks and blocks and blocks beyond the central towers of Warsaw, a much larger crowd swelled beneath a cloud of red smoke. The tens of thousands of people came from across Poland and beyond, and reporters documented their signs:
    “Clean Blood,” as seen by Politico.
    “Pray for an Islamic Holocaust,” per CNN.
    “White Europe” streaked across another banner, the Associated Press reported — as about 60,000 people chanted and marched through Warsaw in an annual gathering of Europe’s far-right movements, which have by now grown to dwarf the official version of Poland's independence day.

    Way to miss my point- you appeal to authority with the typical corny "You dun no' nuddin' about economics" arguments while ignoring the general consensus within academia. Silliness. If you had some sort of authority in the matter (i.e. broad consensus within multiple schools within the field) then I could see your argument having a semblance of authenticity behind it. We have PhD's in economics who subscribe to Libertarian Socialism- why am I wrong to cite them and rely upon their ideas yet someone quote-mining typical Austrian talking points is valid?

    What Revolution was doing was just throwing out buzzwords with no explanation behind them: don't focus on the real issue of immigration and the blue takeover of America- better to just focus on da Federal Reserve man! [Hey did you know the Federal Reserve isn't even federal??? Alex Jones!11!!!] No one is going to be convinced with that level of retardedness and it's not a feasible strategy going forward. Good luck trying to abolish the Fed or any other comical Libertarian ideal when the Democrats have a permanent majority in the Congress and the party is run by oligarchs. We'll focus on real issues like immigration which are winning issues and necessary to tackle if we wish to keep America functioning properly.

    No doubt there is push back but as usual for this particular article CNN and WAPO had to use lies again to push their agenda.

    CORRECTION: Earlier versions of this article — including the original headline — cited a CNN report that said a “Pray for an Islamic Holocaust” banner was displayed at the weekend march in Warsaw. CNN has since corrected its story and removed its reference to the banner. A similar banner was hung in another Polish city in 2015, according to local reports, but not at Saturday's march. This post has been updated.

    Dude- maybe you ought to read Ron Paul about ending the FED. The money problem is pretty much the basis of everything else is wrong in the US- FIX IT, get rid of entitlements, and immigration is no longer a problem.

    And there is no difference in the "blue & "red"- just different buzz words to make their followers happy.

    What's going to bring this to America is precisely the narrative you're promoting.

    "To stop the rise of radical nationalism, we have to become radical nationalists" is an exceptionally preposterous argument.

We have PhD's in economics who subscribe to Libertarian Socialism- why am I wrong to cite them and rely upon their ideas yet someone quote-mining typical Austrian talking points is valid?
    Ah, well, the academic consensus, yes..

    What Revolution was doing was just throwing out buzzwords with no explanation behind them: don't focus on the real issue of immigration and the blue takeover of America- better to just focus on da Federal Reserve man! [Hey did you know the Federal Reserve isn't even federal??? Alex Jones!11!!!] No one is going to be convinced with that level of retardedness and it's not a feasible strategy going forward. Good luck trying to abolish the Fed or any other comical Libertarian ideal when the Democrats have a permanent majority in the Congress and the party is run by oligarchs. We'll focus on real issues like immigration which are winning issues and necessary to tackle if we wish to keep America functioning properly.
    The academic consensus, I presume?

    ...on another note, what exactly are you - a self-identified socialist - complaining about anyway?

    The progress of socialism in the West is too slow for you, or what?

    If I were a socialist, I'd take a look at the news once a month, say "sweet" and go play golf.

    "The program of liberalism, ...if condensed into a single word, would have to read: property..."

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre ó the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    -H. L. Mencken

    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Default In 1272, the Muslim community first invented the condom using a goat's lower intestine..

    In 1873, the British somewhat refined this idea by taking it out of the goat first.

    Pointing out one more time that Islam is fundamentally opposed to a liberty way of life. In my opinion, a Muslim ban is not the same as unlimited immigration. There are many people groups easily absorbed into American life. Muslims demand their own way, no matter what.

    Just something to think about.

    I have thought about it, and agree whole-heartedly.
