Masks and lockdowns prevented many deaths
Based on what? Clearly not based on Dr Fauci's leaked emails stating the opposite. And the US Health Adviser stated that lockdowns are useless if done in isolation. In other words the only lockdown that is effective is if no one, anywhere leaves their home. This was in a critique of the Chinese government's attempt to lock down.
there was also doubts about untrained public being able to use or weak the masks effectively. A lot of people would not cover their noses.
And based on this, lockdowns and mask mandates are pointless. High profile government officials and medical professionals were caught on camera ignoring mask mandates when not in public. That means they knew it was pointless. Otherwise they would have worn them.
Putting Latinx immigrants in cages and deportation counts as draconian.
The border has always been run in this manner and is being run in this manner right now. Trump didn't come in, sit on some throne at the Whitehouse and decree cages. Trump didn't go to the border and decree cages by edict. Congress creates and votes on the laws that are enforced at the border.
Democrats can't responsibly address Trump's immigration sins until they reckon with Obama's
The number of undocumented immigrants in detention centers has increased by more than 50% since Biden took office
The Road to Serfdom
This spell-binding book is a classic in the history of liberal ideas. It was singularly responsible for launching an important debate on the relationship between political and economic freedom.
What F.A. Hayek saw, and what most all his contemporaries missed, was that every step away from the free market and toward government planning represented a compromise of human freedom generally and a step toward a form of dictatorship--and this is true in all times and places. He demonstrated this against every claim that government control was really only a means of increasing social well-being. Hayek said that government planning would make society less liveable, more brutal, more despotic. Socialism in all its forms is contrary to freedom.
Nazism, he wrote, is not different in kind from Communism. Further, he showed that the very forms of government that England and America were supposedly fighting abroad were being enacted at home, if under a different guise. Further steps down this road, he said, can only end in the abolition of effective liberty for everyone.
Capitalism, he wrote, is the only system of economics compatible with human dignity, prosperity, and liberty. To the extent we move away from that system, we empower the worst people in society to manage what they do not understand.
European Business, Dictatorship, and Political Risk, 1920-1945
Nazi dominance left businesses “almost incapable of asserting their own interests against those of the state” (p. 70).
You clearly think that. Only an hour ago you argued, "They literally claimed to be socialists", as if we should be convinced by what the Nazis said. Now you are backpedalling, just like you do every time you say something stupid.
Nowhere in my argument is it implied that NAZIs always tell the truth, so you just made that part up out of desperation I suppose. But ideologies do name themselves after the ideology they support and enforce. Democrats want democracy. Republicans want a constitutional republic. Socialists want socialism. The Chinese Communist Party wants Communism. Your narcissism and attempt to change my argument wouldn't be as annoying if you were successful, smart, fit or any other thing that takes a brain or ambition. But you're not, so it just looks like narcissism and stupidity from a loser that needs a government to help him out when millions of others just get it done while you are unable to take care of yourself like a big boy does. Hitler would have been leading a Socialist party, and you would have hopped right on board. I know it, and your government worshipping ass knows it to. You would have begged the Fuhrer for a bread line to get yourself just one more loaf of bread for the month. You would have given him more and more power because that's what socialists do. You can deny you would, but nobody gives a flying shit.
Your apparent belief that the Nazis always told the truth is beyond stupid.
Nobody thinks NAZIs or any other political entity in human history always told the truth. We simply look at the policies of Nazi Germany and see that they are collectivist and want the government to have more authority in the lives of their people. The Republican Party today opposes big government. The Democratic Party of today is for big government. Nazi Germany was for big government.
To BELIEVE that Nazi's were socialist's, is the fucking CRAZIEST shit I've heard in a long time..
They literally claimed to be Socialists and are labeled and described as such in all old books about the Nazi regime.
But, it's not just WORDS, is it.. Nahh.. It's the DEMONIZING of leftists.
No. It's us proving they weren't right wing ideologically or on fiscal policy as only the modern left has ever claimed.
It's the dog whistle you HOPE somebody will hear, like the fucking right wing nut who broke into Nancy Pelosi's house.
This has been debunked. The guy was was an illegal alien hippie type who was a nudist, was into hard drugs, and was homeless living in the San Francisco area for the last 20 years. He also claimed on Facebook that Jesus was evil. It also turned out that he's mentally handicapped and has posted both left and right wing rage bait on social media.
You have GUNS aimed at libs like me, don't you??
Did CNN tell you to say that stupid shit, or is it your own? If it's your own, grow the fuck up. If it's CNN's, stop listening to propaganda created to protect the interests of the billionaires who own the media. Their honest journalism rating is in the sewer.
Is the WaPo more to your liking? Nahh. Here's what they say on the issue:
No. They're a far left rag owned by a billionaire that censored the Hunter Biden story for over a year.
...Instead of controlling the means of production or redistributing wealth to build a utopian society, the Nazis focused on safeguarding a social
They did control the means of production. The Road to Serfdom pointed this out. As for a "utopian society", point me to any Communist country that appears utopian to you. By "utopian", does the WaPo mean censorship, mass genocides, killing fields and bread lines?
and racial hierarchy.....
The Democratic Party was wearing Klan sheets in the 1940s. The entire Western world supported a racial hierarchy in 1945, including the Democrats. Racism is a cultural issue and has nothing to do with a group's fiscal policy. China is racist as hell and leftist as hell right this second. The American left has created "A Day without white people" and even made calls for minorities to get vaccines before white people. Racism has nothing to do with political wings. Both wings have overt racists in them. Political wing has to do with whether you support the free market or you support government intervention or government control of the market.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
