And whatshername, the second shift CNN anchor, just told Tucker the fuck off.

Bitch ass talking about homegirl with no legs dont love her country. That chick was shot out of a fucking Apache helicopter or some shit, bro. Not only risking life and limb for her country, but quite literally giving them away. What's tucker done to love his country? Put a little american flag on his desk or something. Fuck outta here.

A goddamn combat transport chopper man. That's some straight GI Jane shit.

Jeremy Diamond always has the sharpest suits, duddint he? Kid's going places.

He's no Kaitlin Collins though. Kait could give you a comprehensive walk through the entire Gettysburg address in less than 60 seconds if she had to. She's the primo stuff in reporting.

Squeeze him, Kait. Lemme tell ya something. It is not only entirely impractical and unnecessary to build a border wall out of steel, but more difficult to built and far more expensive (even if it costs peanuts compared to the trade deal that took priority). Dumbass goes on and on about a 'stronger' wall... as if the Mexicans crossing the border are driving fuckin tanks or something. What an asshat. Has the nerve to insinuate that Kait knows nothing about the construction industry and then says some dumb shit like that.

The best way to do that wall is to pour concrete into casts and reinforce/brace the american side with vertical supports. Done. Pedro ain't climbing it, aint driving through it, and it'll stand for hundreds of years.

Of the caucasian races, the English brand are the biggest idiots. You can tell this by comparing the positions of the U.S., the UK, and other predominantly white countries on this order of ranking: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Course i understand there are variables involved but I'm guessing that if Sweden or Germany or some other reasonably lower country on the list was the size of the U.S. or as condensed as the UK, their numbers still wouldnt be as high.

Conclusion: the industrial revolution made the English speaking white people careless and arrogant.

Finally somebody said it right.

"Marxists, who are skeptical of right-wing populist conspiracy theories, also accuse the global power elite of not having the best interests of all at heart, and many intergovernmental organizations of suffering from a democratic deficit, but they argue that the superclass are plutocrats only interested in brazenly imposing a neoliberal or neoconservative new world order—the implementation of global capitalism through economic and military coercion to protect the interests of transnational corporations—which systematically undermines the possibility of a socialist one-world government.[94] Arguing that the world is in the middle of a transition from the American Empire to the rule of a global ruling class that has emerged from within the American Empire, they point out that right-wing populist conspiracy theorists, blinded by their anti-communism, fail to see is that what they demonize as the "New World Order" is, ironically, the highest stage of the very capitalist economic system they defend.[94]"

There needn't be a deep state if capitalism openly conspires as it does. That's the grand irony. Deep state conspiracies are distractions to draw attention away from the open conspiracy of capitalism. Lol check this guy out. From the criticism section of the wiki article on conspiracy. The principle here basically is that conspiracy theories are very difficult to manage even on relatively smaller scales... not to mention any collaborative efforts by secret deepstaters who are trying to create a world government.

"The physicist David Robert Grimes estimated the time it would take for a conspiracy to be exposed based on the number of people involved.[88][89] His calculations used data from the PRISM surveillance program, the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, and the FBI forensic scandal. Grimes estimated that:

a Moon landing hoax would require the involvement of 411,000 people and would be exposed within 3.68 years;climate-change fraud would require 405,000 people and would be exposed within 3.70 years;a vaccination conspiracy would require a minimum of 22,000 people (without drug companies) and would be exposed within at least 3.15 years and at most 34.78 years depending on the number involved;a conspiracy to suppress a cure for cancer would require 714,000 people and would be exposed within 3.17 years."

China launched for Mars yesterday. Know what the U.S. did yesterday? Nuthin.

State capitalism moves a country forward at a much more steady pace at the expense of a few personal freedoms which you end up not noticing are missing once you've acclimatized to this way of life.

If you could quantify the amount of happiness, you'd find the Chinese have the most.

It cannot be stressed enough how important comrade Mao was to the future of the planet. What he seized and set into motion was the evolution of a great dragon that would lead progress forward in the expansion of the human species.

Chinaman goes to Mars... American goes to Walmart. We need not talk about small steps and giant leaps here.

Capitalism changes how it works if it reaches a certain scale.

Monopolizing, vs privately owned small business.

Competition brings down prices sometimes,
but not if there is a monopoly.

NWO is that monopoly.

exactly!

The great monolithic monster conservative snow flakes fear the most is not the godless communist spectre, but the corporation so powerful that it is indistinguishable from a government in its ability to control society.

The irony is, it's Marxism that can save them from their own Frankenstein. Somebody musta put into these idiots heads that Karl was the bad guy. Unbelievable, dan. Unbelievable. Anybody who joins a beer drinking club and ends up at the top, cant be a bad guy. Its logically impossible.

Equality is a sign of dull senses.
It's like sayingn things have no uniqueness, when in fact, uniqueness is in everything.

In marxism, there may have been an error, considering all religion as bad.
Dull senses would say religion is all the same.
When it's not.

On the other hand, some times culture can become so sick,
that it needs to be aborted.

The positives would outweigh the negatives to just destroy a corrupted religion.

Religions are systems of memes and humans.
Cultural entities.

Marxism is also a cultural entity.

Culture mutates a lot.

It has no master.

I see religions and philosophies as cultural entities.

And now kim defends kanye's 'bi-polar' disorder as if that shit is anything more than the temper tanturing of an obnoxious mental midget who stopped maturing emotionally at 15.

In any event I shall certainly vote for him if he runs for president. I would totally like to see what would happen to this country if he got it. Fuck I'd almost pay to see something like that.

I gotta disagree I think. To me, marxism - historical materialism - is more akin to a physics or a mechanics than an anthropology. To call it cultural is to expose its truths to those ideological ambiguities that constantly change. But the premises of Marxism never change... cannot change... so long as the material universe exists.

Moreover, I could argue that culture is the product of the forces marxism identifies, and in that marxism stands above and beyond its effects.

Historical materialism is materialist as it does not believe that history has been driven by individual's consciousness or ideals, but rather subscribes to the philosophical monism that matter is the fundamental substance of nature and henceforth the driving force in all of world history; this drove Marx and other historical materialists to abandon ideas such as rights (e.g. "right to life, liberty, and property" as liberalism professed).[3] In contrast, idealists believe that human consciousness creates reality rather than the materialist conception that material reality creates human consciousness. This put Marx in direct conflict with groups like the liberals who believed that reality was governed by some set of ideals...


Now look, it's not as easy as you think to figure out what this is sayin. It is a complete rejection of any reality directed and determined by that cartesian second substance cogito, allegedly 'free' of the deterministic forces of the material relations it is embedded in. In shorthand the 'monism' of this theory must reject the notion that there can be objective things like 'rights' that arent conditioned by the ruling class ideas that dominate the period in which those considerations are made.

You didn't get that the first time around so read it again. It's a very subtle thing you've got to do some digging to get.

What is 'ideal', or thought of as 'ideal', is not derived directly from the facts of the material relations themselves, but from the minds of people engaged in those relations who either wish to sustain or abolish their present circumstances. That being the case, you cant trust that a notion such as a 'right' won't be an idea originating in, and for, the personal bias of the subject engaged in his particular conflict.

Marxism bypasses this problem entirely and refuses even to call socialsm/communism an 'ideal' in a technical philosophical sense.

Not that socialism 'should' happen, but that it is likely to happen, or something like it anyway. People mistake a Marxist's enthusiasm for socialism as some kind of claim to an 'ideal' based on some multifarious set of 'rights'.

Hell a marxist'll be the first one to tell you there ain't no rights.
