I am also willing to have the discussion of how to work with the police to combat abuses of power which, I agree, are way too fucking common, even though I think that defunding the police is exactly the wrong way to do that.
If you take the money out of the police and put it into social programs you can reduce crime. Would you rather pay to punish people for crimes including fictional ones or pay to prevent crime before it happens by reducing the shittyness of the lives of would-be criminals who are driven to crime by their lack of privilege in a world ruled by privileged people?
You're a parasitic loser who still lives with his parents, therefore everything you say is irrelevant.
You are basically judging the validity of my words based on my economic status, because me living with my parents and being a "loser" is due to a lack of money. You're a capitalist, plain and simple.
Lol. I literally wrote, "we might differ about the best way to get there",
You are implying that you and him have the same goal. If thats not what you meant, then you are incapable of clearly expressing your thoughts and I am not at fault for correctly interpreting your words. Al's goal is to bring America back to the 1930-50s and your supposed goal is socialism.
We might differ about the best way to get there, but at least we agree where there is.
I saw in some of your older posts that you said you're a socialist. Do you know the difference between a socialist and a soc-dem? If you're a socialist, then your "there" is different than his.
That's completely irrelevant if you happen to be white and poor you moron.
Not only are you too white and privileged to see that it's about more than just being poor, but you are also too white and privileged to care that way more blacks are poor than whites if you adjust for the fact that the population of whites is higher in general.
I have three black grandchildren and a black great-grandchild.
You thought America was great before it gave blacks the right to vote. If you care about blacks then you think America was disgusting back then, but you said it was great.
I am a Social-Democrat
How socially democratic was America during the time you said it was great? Because as I understand it, it was very close to 0%.
I realize we had our problems back when America WAS great
The problems outweigh the reasons to call it great, because it lacked practically any form of non-capitalist economics and was both racist and sexist. A real-soc-dem would know that. You are like, barely left of Hitler if you liked America back then.
These days being white and poor is even worse than being black and poor because at least you can blame racism if you're black.
You are much more likely to be poor if you're black because of systemic racism so your argument is very white and privileged. Only white people who are privileged think that whites lacking privilege is worse than blacks lacking privilege.
Yes, I feel a joint, legally binding declaration should be made by all political parties that everyone must be forced to be equal.
Complications encountered in implementing this scheme such as do the dumb become clever or do the clever become dumb in order to achieve uniformity of equality can be addressed at a later date.
I agree with everything you just said.
