    US Politics: House of the Rising Sun

    wasn't it just one night? not long anyway.

    Don't really need to. Didn't the police and firefighters go on strike in montreal in the 60's? that's a reasonably good example. I would bet any city in the united states would be worse.

    US Politics: Free Trade, Freer Trade, and Nuclear War

    If we're recommending books, please pick up A. Hunter Solomon's 666 page treatise on the subject called the Benefits of Socialism: A Portrait of Progress. It's with diagrams so should help you. Also pick up Thomas Sowell's classic, Basic Economics. Probably a few here that would enjoy both these.

    US Politics: Free Trade, Freer Trade, and Nuclear War

    I have very little doubt you give bad advice with your beautifully worded strawmen. Please let me have a go. Socialism is a great ideal, free money for everyone from the money trees and the world runs on unicorn farts. But really, socialists are full of shit. They just want control of someone else's money and when they take it they screw up whatever they said they wanted to do with it. Everyone gets demotivated and eventually starves like the Venezuelans. Or the North Koreans. Or the Cubans. Great stuff if everyone wants to be equally hungry and poor. Except for whoever ended up in charge of the mess, usually the authoritarian who tried to implement "real socialism" this time round.

    This is a perfect example of left wing authoritarianism: Practically we need your money. Philosophically, we don't let individuals have rights.

    did you just do exactly what you described? Wow, just wow. Props for the gall.

    This one from the Washington Post displays a degree of mental gymnastics even Winston Smith would admire. Everyone should study humanities with professors like this. Great work, content warning though: don't read the comments.

    u.s. media: lmao you thought politics was bad

    The "garbage op-ed" gives many examples (not just Christina Hoff Sommers) of strong liberal students explaining how words are actual violence and that letting anyone with differing ideas speak nearby (if not ever) is an act of aggression. Sure, many people will call these fine examples of modern education snowflakes but they fail to recognize why we should quash and de-platform anyone who strays from the narrative. And disagreement is something only heard from Nazis or, in many cases, a snowflake on the wrong side of history. The article would have been good to point out these obvious truths but maybe they were too obvious to need to be said. Also, I'm not a "he"

    Its Orwellian to shut down someone talking and call yourself "liberal" or "Liberal".
  10. Were any of you a part of the Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory? I believe the submission side of it has finished now but was reading parts and thought someone here might have been involved. Good to see such community involvement and that they are loading some of them to youtube so people can watch the submissions to witness their sincerity.
  11. Not sure why you would be calling on something that doesn't exit to forbid something but, I agree, Trump is literally Hitler and anyone who even almost supports anything he has ever said is a racist misogynistic Nazi (excuse the tautology but its true).

    In 1984, to be a true liberal one must be willing to show someone what freedom is by stopping them from speaking.
  13. Its important to remember that anyone to the right of about Michael Moore is literally a Nazi, especially here.
  14. Apparently there is a procession of tractors heading down the New England highway, over the diesel engines you can just hear the chanting of "love is love" and something about mistresses rights. Rumour is they are on their way to greet Malcolm Turnbull when he gets back. I'm sure he'll sort it all out by giving the much respected and trustworthy Australian press nothing to publish but a factual, unbiased analysis of his meeting with the Donald. In news from up here, another man with some expertise on the sanctity of marriage has announced a coal miner as the alp candidate for Capricornia declaring labor is not anti-coal. With the Batman by-election less than a month away, Ged must be pleased. I figure he is thinking anyone who leans to the right of about Pol Pot is going to preference alp over the greens, or it might be the alp has polling showing they aren't a hope without Liberals guiding preferences their way. Guess we'll find out the same day Nick Xenophon decides who runs South Australia.
