as I actively dislike any thoughts brought out by video...
why don't you just summarize what the video says...

mainly because I am not that interested in a video telling me what
they believe or think, as I am interested in what people here believe or think....

The RNC has announced that's its changing the Republican emblem from
an elephant to an condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political
stance: a condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation,
protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others.

Basically, a giant nuclear wasteland, as the corrupt cockroach politicians emerge from their bunkers and repopulate the world with children.

You're too lazy to watch a youtube video? That sounds like your problem, not mine.

K: and you're too lazy to have real thoughts and need a youtube video to think for you....

Postmodernism operates by signs and signals based on patent nuances reflecting surface understanding afraid to look beneath the obvious. Hermeneutics coupled with pseudo derivation based on approximated inferences result in increasing use of general propositions.

Which can fold like a badly dealt set of cards
There is a general sense of structural deficiency inherent in prospective options of postmodern sensibility

^ lecture on the book The Gulag Archipelago, touching on such topics as slavery and labor camps in the Societ Union, the deaths of tens of millions of people at the hands of Marxist leftist ideology in the Soviet Union and Maoist China, infiltration of this ideology into the west today as "postmodernism", the insanity of the notion of collective guilt by virtue of one's supposed group membership, "privilege", personality types, etc.
