Oh, so he wasn't fond of capitalism then? Jolly good. However, as Conservatives will happily inform you, the only alternative to capitalism is a universe where the government takes all of your money.Hence, Conservatives hate Jesus for causing tax increases. Their entire existence is a paradox based on claiming to be Christians while they simultaneously hate everything Jesus ever stood for. Sucks to be them.

How can I achieve that?Oh, I know. I'll convince my populace to adopt a blind, hypnotised love for the military. I'll pretend that what the military does isn't attack (which should be easy seeing as I've already managed it with guns). I'll pretend the military defends. But defends what? Oh, that's it. I'll say our freedom. That'll work. Now, who's up for another war with Iraq? They are planning to attack us so I don't see what choice we have. Same with Denmark. And Switzerland. They are all planning to attack us. Quick! We need the military to save our freedom!!It's strange watching the demise of America, mainly because it's happening so slowly and the first thing to die was common sense.
The great Albert Einstein once said: "Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind."Every solitary nationalist culture in history has met an unfavourable end, from the Romans to the Nazis.So how do Americans (and particularly Republicans) still continue to win support using this outdated and dense method of public relations propaganda? Well, unfortunately it requires the complete brainwashing of the populace. How else do you convince people not to bother weighing your ideas up against the written historical record?And that is the sad state of affairs in America, I am afraid. They say that doing the same thing repeatedly in anticipation of different results is the definition of madness. If that is true then America is a society where insanity has been normalised.In anticipation of the barrage of deflections and counter-accusations from the lowbrow (yet vicious) children of the board, then yes, I am fully aware that other countries are not perfect. I am also fully aware that none of them hold a candle to the social indoctrination factory which is the United States.The United States is a society in which sanity has been marginalised to the fringes of acceptability, its antithesis advertised and sold like a product to the millions of people persuaded to believe they need it.
Progressive parties around Europe are pinning their hopes on Spain to confront the populist right in the EU parliament after the Socialist Party (PSOE) prevailed in a “Super Sunday” of polls dominated by domestic division over Catalonia.Although insurgent challenges loom large in Brussels and Barcelona – not least from exiled and jailed Catalan leaders who were elected MEPs – Spain’s Socialist prime minister Pedro Sanchez translated his recent general election success into a hat-trick of overwhelming victories at the European, regional and local levels.https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/european-elections-spain-socialists-pedro-sanchez-eu-catalonia-psoe-a8931616.html
The Obama administration reportedly rejected the option of a criminal charge against Assange under the Espionage Act, in recognition of the danger to press freedom. Mr Trump and Attorney General William Barr have now crossed that Rubicon.This also comes at a particularly precarious time for journalists around the world. Reporters are being arrested and killed in increasing numbers. Some countries like China and Russia have even taken up the Trump trope of "fake news" to crack down on the press. Most vividly, Saudi Arabia's crown prince is accused of ordering the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi - yet has suffered few consequences from the Trump administration.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48393512
https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2009/09/new-study-finds-45000-deaths-annually-linked-to-lack-of-health-coverage/Meanwhile, idiot Brontoraptor is complaining about waiting times in the UK, while people in his own country are literally dying because they don't have the money for treatment.
The public record of violent deaths following the 2003 invasion of IraqDocumented civilian deaths from violence183,535 – 206,107https://www.iraqbodycount.org/You see what happens when you support the troops, dummies?Support the troops literally equates to, "support whatever malignant, dumbass decision we make over in Washington". It's a propagandist's dream come true.
Let's put aside the sheer irrationality of it for just a moment.There is a long and distinguished history of religion being used by power as a justification for literally anything it wants to do. The king simply says God told him to do it or that it is the will of God and suddenly everybody thinks it's OK. What the fuck is wrong with you? We are creatures of reason and these are ancient yarns invented with the specific purpose of keeping us compliant with the master's wishes.Frankly, the thought that anybody is still religious in the 21st century petrifies me. When I was young and used to read about all the idiot things people did in history class I mistakenly assumed we'd grown out of all that, but the fact is people are bigger idiots now than they have been at any other point in the past. Advances in technology like the internet and the printing press have just enabled the bullshit to spread faster and seem more convincing.
They love the crazies over in Uganda, so you should be safe there. At least until the next civil war or paramilitary coup. If you're Muslim or Jewish they might burn you alive or sacrifice you to Jesus mind, but I'm sure we could send those guys somewhere else instead. Probably best to keep you all apart anyway,What do you think?
I am getting quite sick of these Stalinist thugs over on the American right picking on Stalin. Their violence and Stalinist tactics have gotten completely out of control and they need to be reeled in by a strong iron fist.
http://www.createdebate.com/debate/show/Brontoraptor_A_Year_Ago_Trump_Hasn_t_Started_Any_Wars#arg977130Boring Nazi scumbag Brontoraptor wrote EIGHT different comments in the above thread without receiving a single reply.If that isn't serious mental illness, I frankly do not know what is.
There is absolutely no bottom of the well with them. Their stupidity rests in an unholy abyss in which one can always dive a little deeper should they so choose.Reading their comments is an exercise in learning how functionally pointless and untalented some people are.
