Happy Birthday, MLP:FiM! MLP:FiM turns 11 years old this year! Let's celebrate with an art event!

Don't blame me, I voted for the other guy. (Politics General)

Unpopular opinion:people (and I mean people as in the masses, not the government) made their bed with the internet so at one point we’ll have to lie in it. It’s too easy to blame the government to turn paranoid when you see all the dangerous shit Internet culture created, unprompted.I’ll still pinpoint the birth of Encyclopedia Dramatica as a game changer in Internet culture where it first instilled the idea that it was okay to document the life of random people, submitting randos (clearly not mentally equipped to deal with said scrutinity) to the same scrutinity that usually fall in high profile people (I still don’t see the benefit in maintaining whole pages dissecting the amateur fanart of some Deviant Art fucko) and pushing people to harass them (and it was 2 mere months before Facebook creation) . The blame also rest partially on the big tech company who created an anarchy friendly environment with website that are impossible to moderate due to the sheer size of their userbase. In retrospect, we should have seen this coming and we should have never forgot that it’s people individually who are smart but crowds are dumb panicky animals. You say you fear the government reaction to all this shit. Frankly, I’m torn to but a part of me tell me that at one point the adults in the room who actually have the power and the authority to do things should step in and try to fix this libertarian bullshit cluster fuck and that we the people should stop overestimating our importance and delude ourself we can fix everything with our surface level knowledge. We have to break out of this “I alone can fix it, I is special and unique” way of thinking because for fuck sake it’s not true. We the people are not exceptional

And I know for a fact that you’re on the spectrum almost as much as I am (as you’ve admitted so, yourself, almost a year ago), so don’t be surprised when you finally understand that it took you so long to finally realize the ultimate pointlessness of getting involved in bullshit that isn’t even relevant to the thread, in the first place.
 
 
And joking around or not, there was absolutely no reason why I shouldn’t have been allowed to reproach Background Human for his intentionally dishonest portrayal of myself, in that I’m somehow in the same boat politically and ideologically of Tucker Carlson, considering how untrue this low-key comparison of myself to him is, along with how utterly detested and reviled he is in this thread—especially by Dustcan.
 
 
So yeah, no fucking shit I’m going to object to being labled something or somebody that I am actually not (and I am definitely sure that you would do the exact same thing to, if that happened to you), what about it?

Time is something NOBODY EVER GETS BACK so why should anybody not expect to be paid for it?
 
Oh, so the phrase “time es moneh” only applies to the bidnis owners now? Thems workers should slave themselves now?
 
Is we going back to pre-abolition?
 
And you wonder why people dont wanna go back to their jobs?

Why do leftists keep making cringe
 
Because ideological entrapment to a particular market-based system of the world where if X-number is bad if Y but good if Z, so therefore Swedish social democracy is the end-all, be-all.

Many of them are younger people who will use memes either to keep themselves happy, or to attract youngsters to join them. Something like how 4channers use memes as Trumpist propaganda.

A restaurant in Texas is getting all roasty toasty in reviews after kicking out a young couple who were wearing masks. Said couple has an immunocompromised child at home and wore masks as an extra layer of protection.
 
 
One can, and should, question the wisdom of them going to a sitdown restaurant regardless of being vaxed and masked, given their child’s condition, but I digress.
 
 
While the owner is completely within his rights to refuse service, we are completely within our rights to shitcan him and troll his ass.
 
 
Natch’ he’s all up and arms about the “blood, sweat and money” he put into his business. Shoulda thought of that before you did something that was sure to make national news buddy. Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t mean it makes sense from a business standpoint.

I don’t see how it’s better that we delegated the paparazzi stalking methods from the governments to the basement dwellers  
Also big addendum, I read that part about the Red Scare too quickly and thought it was about the URSS. I thereby acknowledge I was wrong about that part and the “brutal dictatorship” part was out of line since I can’t edit my comment, the jokes on me, I’m a red blooded idiot  
But the part about social control still stand and I think comparing your shitty Internet culture to McCarthy ism is hardly the epic burn you seeked

A Chester County PA man admitted to voting illegally, for Trump. He returned, after voting once, in disguise to vote as his dead son. His son, btw, was a registered Democrat and would likely have voted against Trump.
 
 
Once again, almost every major instance of voter fraud has been from Republicans.

Incidentally I believe this election has had more cases of fraud than every election in the last several years. Combined.
 
All for Trump.

A “Swedish democracy” is still immeasurably based compared to an (un)tried and (un)true global anarcho-communist society, in all actuality.
