So Trump falls in love with a dictator, there's a huge exposé on his tax fraud, and public shaming of a sexual assault victim. And again he won't be accountable for any of it. Just a typical week in 2018

if all presidents have been bad, why don't you people start voting for good ones?

I mean you called us liberals and we explicitly aren't liberals...so...¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I also don't think you're a conservative. Conservatives align themselves much further right. You're a liberal. Liberalism is center-right. American liberals tend to be down with center-right policies. The fact that they wholeheartedly fall behind people who deregulate banks and disintegrate the power of unions is explicit proof of that. Edit: I'm not attacking you by saying you support center-right politicians by the way. Just saying that that is not where we are politically. Not sure if that's clear. 

 

Anyway, for anyone who's interested, I'm not shitposting or arguing. This is a *really* good video series on what Liberalism (the ideology) is. All of it is good, but the first video, and the one on Neoliberalism are particularly relevant. I personally learned a good amount from them, even after reading a pretty comprehensive book on Neoliberalism. 

 

 

 

 

PhilosophyTube is a great resource. Yeah those videos do a really job of detailing what Liberalism really is. I'd call myself a socialist. Don't know enough to really add more prefixes to it though. A political quiz pegged me as a libertarian socialist and internet quizzes are never wrong.

Why is everything always framed in an oppositional fashion? Why is a public service a versus situation? I think this is a toxic framework.
The job of government shouldn't be to undo the damage of the last government and set forth the changes that the next government will work against like some sort of pendulum.

Everything is oppositional because everything can be boiled down to dialectical materialism. All issues can be simplified to a conflict.

 

Governments are bi-products of economic systems. The sole purpose of the state, which the government is a part of, is to 'mediate' between the conflicting demographics in an economic system. Slaves and masters, serfs and lords, workers and capitalists. With no government in place either the ruling party would exploit the lower class into destitution and slavery and kill them off, or the lower class would revolt and kill off the ruling class (in which case they'd be fine, hey!).

 

There is nothing prestigious, admirable, or honorable about this. Governments decide who violence is okay to be used against, and the degree to how much. This structure would be to balance between the classes, but whatever group wields more power will always try to take more if they can.

 

The job of government, if working for the people, should be to beat down and destroy the people that try to rule over them. No punches should be held.

 

The problem is that right now only the ruling party tends to see it that way, and I think that Kavanaugh getting confirmed is a perfect example. They could have nominated any number of other anti Roe v Wade weirdos but they wanted to spike the football and get sadistic with it. They gerrymander, they dubiously appoint judges, they suppress votes. They understand that it is a zero sum power grab. Dems are too busy rimming McCain's decomposing shitter.

With the way things seem to be going, all the Democrat senators with the exception of Manchin will be voting against confirming Kavanaugh, so what else do you expect them to do to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation? They don't have the numbers. Even if they pulled every string possible to get more seats in November, that wouldn't affect the outcome of this.

The point is that they’ve never tried. They could have packed the court under Obama and we never would have been in this situation. Had they had any spine at any point they could have prevented this.

Honestly if you were interviewing for a job at Rite Aid and some girl came in claiming you sexually assaulted her, they'd let you go regardless of if it was true or not just because they don't want drama. Even if Kavanaugh is somehow not guilty of everything he's accused of, the ridiculous spectacle that this became should be reason enough to pass on him and go with someone who isn't so problematic even before he takes the job. It's just a matter of people calling in favors and playing political games, but we all already knew that our political system is a farce. Watching the ridiculous failure to get anything done when the dems had full control of the government was the last straw for me, so I'm not surprised by any of this bullcorn.

What really stinks is, I turned 18 in 1999, but I still couldn't get citizenship till 2007, so the first time I could actually vote was 2008, and watching the government fail to lead from that presidency onward greatly decreased the sense of pride I felt from voting since. So I've only ever had one presidential election where I felt like I was doing something worthwhile.

I'm a Re-publican bananarchist. I wan't globalized trade to bring me tropical fruit but I don't want anyone to be exploited in the process and I want natural resources and stolen land to be returned to the public.

And, if at that job interview at Rite Aid they asked you about a mistake you made at a previous job and how you resolved it, and you threw an embarrassing tantrum, there's no way you're getting hired.
