Our form of mercantile capitalism is horrible and unfair, but socialism is not the answer.

Georgism is the answer.

Georgists argue that revenues from a land value tax (LVT) can reduce or eliminate existing taxes on labor and investment that are unfair and inefficient.

well that was the club's first mistake.

that's pretty interesting.

hmmm, welfare-backed bonds! welfare queens could sell the stream of payments, and the bonds would be AAA for real since they'd be backed by the US government.

well, if women were not allowed into the club, they would be safe because they would not even be there.

problem solved.

btw, the idea that banks care whatsoever about your race is absurd.

there is no institution on earth that cares less about your race than banks.

all they care about is whether you will pay them back with interest. that's it.

On the other hand, propagandists in the opposition will try to trap you into a mold of having to be "nice" (exhibit good will) to them. For example, the right-wing is trying to indoctrinate the voters that they should dislike "negative" campaign ads, where "negative" really means any ad that speaks the truth about their candidate or issue.

yes, the other side will demand "respect" which often is just a codeword for conformity to their point of view. but you can stick to your own point and still present it in a sympathetic way.

for example, in PC circles (ny times, npr) it must absolutely never be mentioned that most terrorism worldwide (deliberate murder of random civilians) is islamic terrorism. to do so would be to "disrespect" islam in the PC view. yet the very strong connection between islam and terrorism is a fact, and so should not be denied. to be sympathetic, we should point out that the majority of victims of islamic terrorism are in fact other muslims.

What difference does it make

it's the difference between negligent homicide and first degree murder:

Negligent homicide is a criminal charge brought against people who, through criminal negligence, allow others to die.

Negligent homicide is a lesser included offense to first and second degree murder...

we punish them differently, which is as it should be, since they are not morally equivalent, even if someone is dead in both cases. dead is dead, but motives matter. george w bush is a lying sack of shit who should at the very least be in jail for starting a war under false pretenses, resulting in so many deaths. but it wasn't first degree murder. (except perhaps in the case of saddam hussein)

terrorism is yet lower than even first degree murder, since terrorists don't even have any particular person in mind. it is the sheer bloody minded hate and desire to kill as many random people as possible that makes it the lowest possible crime.

blurtman's subtext seems to be his approval of actual terrorism.

the question is intent. no one set out to murder 100,000 people in iraq, if that's what you're referring to.

not supporting the war, it was incredibly stupid and evil, especially since iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

but terrorism is not the same thing as war. if america had set out to kill iraqis the same way muslim terrorists deliberately kill random people, all the iraqis would be dead.

you may kill

if that means you're not trying to kill them, it's not terrorism.

Quigley says

Here's a guy who agrees with you Patrick, in fact he's an original founder of the red pill movement! But hey, the values he's espousing are traditional Muslim views about women.

So, did Muslims get that part right? Or does the answer lie somewhere in the middle?

Roosh espouses traditional Muslim values about women? Please explain.

Once the porn causes rape argument was debunked and replaced with porn stops rape, the misandrists claim that porn ruins men so that they cannot appreciate a "real woman".

anything that lowers the market value of women is considered morally wrong -- by women.

lol, it's fun to freak people out by mentioning the taste of human milk. didn't drink much but had to try it, just because.

another weird fact: that stuff is alive. has white blood cells in it, fights germs, keeps way longer than store-bought cow milk at room temperature.

Roe v. Wade made it unequivocally clear that consent to sex is not consent to parenthood

great way to put it actually.

one of the shocks of becoming a parent was discovering how sweet human breast milk is. not metaphorically, but literally, as in sugar.

the linea nigra thing was also quite surprising: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linea_nigra

just one more data point:

Oona O’Neill, the daughter of the famed playwright Eugene O’Neill, is an 18-year-old freshly minted high-school graduate and fledgling actress when she marries 54-year-old Charles Chaplin, the internationally renowned actor, filmmaker and Hollywood legend, on this day in 1943, in Santa Barbara, California.

and they had a long and happy marriage by all accounts, 34 years and eight (!) children.

exactly.

not only does she alone still have the abortion choice after being equally responsible for the sex, she alone has the option to give up the kid for adoption and avoid support costs.

why should women have greater legal rights than men? it's pure anti-male sexism. if women want equality, let's let them have that.

Men know this subconsciously, which is why they strive to earn money and achieve success.

Women do gaslight men on this.

gaslight
To manipulate events and situations in order to make a person believe that he or she is crazy.
