No we're not, because that probably won't happen.
Honestly, we already came uncomfortably closer from a history repeat with Trump's "America First" nonsense and the far and alt-rights on the rise everywhere else. Perhaps you should be worrying about that instead.

As usual, you're sticking to your wrong preconception about those so-called "causes" (and, even if there's some degree of truth in them, how much it says about the morality of those who use that as an excuse). And which ideas are comparatively the most dangerous.

An excerpt of a podcast I was listening to. They're nobody important, just some internet rando anons with hot takes, don't worry about it.

"I think the problem of these new secular ideologies is that, they ultimately spin out of the enlightenment. What I mean is, part of my disagreement with the 'SJWs' is that, even if they're all so keen on decolonization, the ultimate philosophical roots of their positions are, entirely european and come from the Enlightenment and hence they're very impatient towards the sacred worldviews of any non-european cultures and religions"

I personally think that is sort of spot-on. The secular left, despite embracing the Abdullahs or the Aishas of the world as part of the diversity, treat them somehow about as patronizing as a colonizer would towards the native population. Tolerated, virtue-signalled, but ultimately the the secular left knows better because they're enlightened and have books and science, nevermind that other culture have books, too.

Imo that still smells like colonization, just with a distinctly different flavor. Not that I mind. I'd happily be colonized. I frankly don't know of any other mode of being.

You what I find funny? Twitter Conservatives and Conservatives demagogs like to use “why can't I have my own opinion” defense, but have you ever seen Conservative opinions, they're very… questionable at times if you understand the context.

I mean, Scott did a shitty thing. Donating 10s of thousands to GOP politicians is a step above just voting for them during voting season.

But, does he know how shitty the people he donates to are? Like just with the average voter, there's a difference between hearing their slogans of 'I'm not a bad guy!' once every 2 years and then spending the rest of the time ignoring politics altogether, and supporting a party/candidates because you spend your free time researching the party/candidates and vote for them because 'Yeah I know they're bad guys. That's why I did it.'

Regardless, the fact that he got doxxed for that isn't right. Especially considering how he very well may not have known about the s### that the GOP have done.

Not to mention the fact that VivziePop got doxxed simply for calling out the doxxers.

TBF I don't think Scott ever mentioned his political views or what parties he supports before someone had to look it up.

And on his reddit post he did say to voting for People he thinks "will do the best job" even if he doesn't necessarily agree with them politically. Which includes both Dems and Reps if remember right.

So make of that what you will.

Cawthorn's a pretty upright guy with his charity and overall humbleness and generosity, so I do believe this is a case of the proudly bible-loving voter wanting to support 1 of the only 2 major political parties, so he naturally defaulted to the one that constantly [lies] about being bible lovers.

So yeah I'm not willing to jump to denouncing Cawthorn, and instead just want to blame the two party system being just that fucked up.

How close is old America to a second civil war?

That 50/50 vote just reinforces my belief that the left and right can't continue being friendly with one another for much longer.

The bipartisan lie is over.

He's already accomplished what many game creators dream of doing in a little under a decade, so he probably doesn't mind being cancelled.

I just find it sad that people seem more concerned over a creator's donations than they do the GOP being run by neo-nazis.

French bronies help me out. The podcast I was listening to mentioned a french author named Houllebecq. Apparently he wrote a book called Submission which, unsurprisingly is about Islam. More specifically: What if Islam won 2022 election helped by socialists?

Apparently the book was deemed islamophobic by a lotta people, but the podcast guest (a muslim trilingual) argued that, well, it wasn't???

So he summarized the plot as the following: Socialist allied with a Muslim party, and made a charming and handsome muslim candidate as frontrunner, against Marine Le Pen. Muslim + Socialist won 2022. France is turning muslim.

Scared yet? It gets better; Instead of being dystopic, France gotten the best version of what the right wing actually wanted; Ppl with a healthy attitude to sexuality. Ppl who aren't afraid of science. Ppl with a strong sense of narrative and identity. Ppl who aren't racists and also with a very clear sense of what gender is. Essentially, France got the socialism in terms of economy and workplace, islam in the interpersonal social space, and was better off because of it.

The book ends with the protagonist thinking about converting to islam with a new well paid job, a chance at a better life and a newly arranged wife.

A lotta ppl who read it prolly like: BAD END? Our hero assimilated and became a zombie? I'm here like: GOOD END,

The guest said: The author was trying to present the crisis that France is currently in. If the combo of socialism and ISLAM could actually be a viable and attractive alternative solutions to many of the problems they face, then you're in a bad fucking spot.

LOL what is even.

It is not disturbing to you that someone is driven out of their job for having normal political opinions?

@Dustcan
Has he committed by your definition a crime by donating and voting?

Doxxers and cancel culture crowds are shit and it needs to end. Also the GOP is not run by neo nazis, what the heck man?

@CaptainXtra
Judging by this thread atm very close. What are you even reading coming up with all this nonsense? "The bipartisan lie is over."?


This thread is uh, getting interesting nowadays that's for sure…

Why don't the Democrats expand voting by allowing mail-in votes in blue states? If they can't expand voting in swing states, then at least increase their numbers in states where people are more likely to vote Democrat.

By Scott's own admission, the stuff about his political donations had literally nothing to do with him deciding to retire from the games industry.

Dude is like, in his 40s with 3 kids and another one coming soon, he already has enough money to take care of them all and work would just get in the way of family time.
