Brett Bellmore on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. On the contrary, they've pretty well established that the portrayal of gay people as a large fraction of the population, rather than 1-2%, is costing them money. They know that they'd make more money off family friendly films and TV series. I'm not sure "principle" or "ideals" exactly describes the
Seth W. on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. All those depictions of gay people on television is motivated by profit, not by ideas of equality. So their motive is not a legitimate one.
albatross on What To Do About Ideologies?. If you want to test jb's thesis, the way to do it is to see whether the school administration tolerates shouting down/disrupting speech they agree with. The tricky bit is to separate out "stuff the administrators don't agree with" from "stuff that's unpopular with students." I suspect the BDS movement
Brett Bellmore on Join The Progressive Side For Greater Freedom Of Speech. He's being ironic, you realize that. If you claim to support a candidate because you don't want the candidate's supporters killing you, you don't explain that's why you're doing it.
Brett Bellmore on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. It isn't actually the opposite direction. The orders can always be changed after you've established they have to be followed. The key isn't what the orthodoxy will be, but that there will be one enforced.

jb on Brexit, Transnationalists, Nationalists. Sailer has a post up that perfectly illustrates the juxtaposition between the elite and masses on multiculturalism, about a chicken processing plant in Nebraska that the locals rejected. For the elite it's business profits and taxes, for the masses it's getting your 400 person community and schools overrun with 1,100
Rico Zamman on Join The Progressive Side For Greater Freedom Of Speech. I'm a socialist and an agnostic, and I don't vote, cause I just can't find a political flavor I like. Feels good to say it!
jb on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. It's also a large part of what has been happening in the Middle East the last few decades. When the West was still more or less guided by Christian mores countries around the world wanted to imitate their success, when it went off the rails in the 1960s a resurgence
honkwtf on Locking A Car With A Short Horn Blast Is Rude And Obnoxious. Tried to sign the petition, but now closed - Closed Petition This petition has been archived because it did not meet the signature requirements. It can no longer be signed.
Rico Zamman on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. Well, I do agree with the Chinese authorities having banned all depictions of gay people on television. If gays want to be gays, fine with me. If gays want to marry, no problem with me either, but there's no reason to be promoting homosexuality on TV or schools either. Sometimes
Glengarry on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. Seems sensible enough. Getting on the train with respect to science and business works out well, but why imitate or promote the socially harmful stuff?
Rico Zamman on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. Well Daniel, please tell me... If you are going to "give every Venezuelan man, woman and child an equal share in the new privatized entity" how exactly is that going to be private? To pirvatize means that the profits belong only to the owners. How would you ever think the
bob sykes on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. This sort of parallels what is happening in Russia, a general repudiation of the West. It also reinforces the tendency for Russia and China to form an anti-Western, especially anti-US, alliance. One is reminded of Mackinder's theory that whoever control the Eurasian heartland controls the world: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Geographical_Pivot_of_History
Matt on Leaders In China Reject Progressive Future. They are now starting to openly resist (((Western ideas))). Of course, China doesn't have a (((liberal media))) so that makes a difference.

Daniel on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. I>>f I was Emperor of the Western Hemisphere I'd have Maduro removed along with all his ministers....... Add to that, privatize the oil business. Take it completely out of the hands of the government. Give every Venezuelan man, woman and child an equal share in the new privatized entity. The
Check it out on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. For Dan, who believes life would be better for the countries who suck up to the U.S. Here's Alex Henderson's 7 Fascist Regimes Enthusiastically Supported by America President Barack Obama inspired a great deal of debate when, in December, he asserted that it was time for the United States to
Check it out on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. The American people have fallen into a moral coma subsisting on no more than propaganda and 'bread and circuses' like their Roman counterparts long ago. The empire marches on toward the inevitable zombie apocalypse unaware that the world is not amused by its stupor. Fortunately, Russia and China are not
Check it out on What To Do About Ideologies?. Chesterton? I read Chesterton and he's garbage. You might as well read Saint Agustin or Thomas Aquinas or Thomas Kempis... Crap everywhere you look at it. Try Bertrand Russell and Witgenstein instead. They're much better for your brain. There's also Stephen Hawking, Noam Chomsky and Richard Dawkins; Rousseau, Macciavelli and
Check it out on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. In America truth is offensive. If you tell the truth, you are offensive. I am offensive. Michael Hudson is offensive. Gerald Celente is offensive. Herman Daly is offensive. Nomi Prins is offensive. Pam Martens is offensive. Chris Hedges is offensive. Chris Floyd is offensive. John Pilger is offensive. Noam Chomsky
Check it out on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. Most Americans, like Dan, go along with unaccountable murder, torture, and detention without evidence, which proclaims their gullibility to the entire world. There has never in history been a population as unaware as Americans. The world is amazed that an insouciant people became, if only for a short time, a

Dan on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. I agree with Check it out. We should leave the stupid Venezuelans to starve in peace. Who are we to presume that they like to eat? Toilet paper is a symbol of American imperialism anyway, and it's good that it's gone.
Check it out on What To Do About Ideologies?. "I think turning away from beliefs in supernatural religions leaves an unfulfilled need in a lot of people" No. Not really, just look at the percentages of atheists not only in Scandinavian countries, but most Western Europe countries (a majority now, by the way), they seem more fulfilled than religious
Check it out on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. A United States-backed opposition is aggressively undermining the Nicolas Maduro government that most Venezuelans voted to have and want. The United States corporate-government media is painting oil-rich Venezuela, the wealthiest Latin American country, as poorly managed by President Nicolas Maduro, resulting in opposition protests. The U.S. corporate media is not
jb on What To Do About Ideologies?. The advent of conservative speakers being de-platformed or harassed by screaming social justice warriors is a logical consequence of an ideology that equates conservative opinions with physical violence. Or it could just be a consequence of the university system and the law encouraging them by doing nothing. How passionate would
Jim on Hunger Spreading In Venezuela. The Equator runs just south of the southern tip of Venezuela. Venezuela is a tropical country much of it lush rain forest. It should be easily able to feed itself and be a big exporter of food and fiber. Compare Venezuela and Texas. Texas has a population of about 27
Randall Parker on William H. McNeill On Samuel P. Huntington. 13 years after writing the above post here is how my thinking has changed: First off, I think the bunker mentality is the right approach. Our bunker is huge. We aren't inconveniencing ourselves much by reducing human movement between Western and Islamic civilizations. Some other countries we are friendly with
Dan on What To Do About Ideologies?. "They are intelligent and hard realists and family oriented." Or at least intelligent, practical and family oriented. Maybe not 'hard realists' in an alt-right sense, but they certainly don't buy into any of the weird sexual drivel being sold today.
Dan on What To Do About Ideologies?. There is a saying, "if you don't believe in anything you'll fall for everything." Most atheists I know are not cool detached rationalists or fonts of truth and wisdom. Instead they are some of the most ridiculous leftists you will find. They attach themselves to leftwing extremism and climate alarmism,
bob sykes on What To Do About Ideologies?. Chesterton commented on this phenomena a hundred years ago, so did Eric Hoffer. "The True Believer" is well worth reading today.
Brett Bellmore on What To Do About Ideologies?. "I think turning away from beliefs in supernatural religions leaves an unfulfilled need in a lot of people" Pretty much: Religion and humanity co-evolved, we've more or less got a space in our brain that's going to be occupied by SOMETHING religion-like. The only question is what it's going to
Jim on What To Do About Ideologies?. Yes, the enormous influence of crazy ideologies in the last hundred years or so is astonishing. Things like Marxism in the Soviet Union, Nazism, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, Pol Pot's slaughter of half the population of Cambodia, and the latest insanity - Venezuela, which should be one
Jim on The Insanity Of Liberal Arts Colleges. Chris - Yes, if government funding of university departments of social sciences were eliminated a lot of this nonsense would disappear. Most social sciences are about as scientific as astrology. If astrology were supported by government funding, while it would be a waste of money, it would do far less
chris on The Insanity Of Liberal Arts Colleges. Trump needs to defund these programs and institute laws and policies that prohibit these ideologies as racist and sexist as they are.
