    But who's gonna take people's guns and plastic straws away without cops?

     

    Can you all even fire a gun recreationally in Australia anymore?

    @Quintus It's the "If you're not with me, you're my enemy" mentality, which is the prevailing thought these days. Progressives and Conservatives need their Jaws Quint asking Hooper what he can do with his devices moment of coming together, but it'll never happen at this point. Partisan divide has widened exponentially. Bluemangroup blocking me because I'm opposed to both police brutality and police antagonizing and destabilization of our cities, especially after the chaos that unfolded this week where people were running around with guns, burning shit down, driving their cars into people and looting, is a prime example of this. There's no simple answer, but I'm not sure why you wouldn't agree that law and order is an absolute necessity.

     

    No, I blocked you because you hold idiotic opinions. What you call police first popped up in 1829 in London, the invention of a man called Sir Robert Peel. 5,000 years of history prior contradicts the utility of modern police in attaining law and order or avoiding anarchy. Cities, towns, and villages self-policed with local volunteer resources from the community. Law-enforcement then were more like a local volunteer fire house, than the travesty that is a centralized police precinct.  

     

    Robert Peel’s Metropolitan Police drew inspiration from that history: the authority of a police force comes from the community which it polices. There is no other way where ~500 people can enforce diddly shit in a city of a million. In other words, law and order derives from the ground up, from the community, who choose to overlook the obvious in exchange for the service of law enforcement. 

     

    Present-day police around the United States are disconnected from their local communities. Most don’t even live where they work. They know nothing about the families or people that they police. Their power is derived from the state rather than those who are policed. The police have power because the state tell the people it is so. The service the people receive is shit. The people are now exercising the “stop overlooking the obvious” clause in their contract. They’re willing to forgo law and order to make a point.

     

    I don’t agree with you because your post shows have no fucking clue what law and order is, or where it comes from. You just want to watch some people who make you blood boil get hurt or killed. Law and order does not come from throwing more police, weapons, or harsher measures at the people. Just ask Iraq and Afghanistan. 

     

    Now quit bothering me!

    I distinctly remember telling you people about 1,5 years ago that it was time to sort out your shit because troublesome times were ahead. And I only peripherally mean the virus. 

    I'll tell you again. Last call. 

    None of us fully grasp the extent of it yet. 

     

    Dude, I moved to a farm and am homesteading with my family, far away from this nonsense. What the fuck more do you want from me? ;)

    blah blah blah pro-centralized police state nonsense blah blah 


    Blocked. 

     

    If your community needs a police presence to survive, it is not a community.

    I do wonder if Trump or someone close to him is smart enough to realize this and he's playing both sides, or if things are just working out in his favor.

     

    Trump made his name in Real Estate, then followed it up in Hollywood, and then won the presidency of the most powerful nation in America by stirring up controversy and playing both sides for dirt cheap marketing. He is the first modern presidential candidate to not outspend the opponent he beat (he spent HALF the Clinton campaign and dominated the mindshare). 

     

    It’s been 30+ years and people still assume he offends accidentally due to his dumbness. Trump is a virtuoso on the instrument known as The Media™.

    I don't know man. I suspect you're giving him more credit than he's due in the Machiavellian department. But I'm glad to be proven wrong.


    If I recall, you are or were one of the younger members here, which is why I didn’t keep you blocked the last time you used this same logic WRT panicking on COVID. 

     

    Sometime between now and your last heartbeat, you will come to realize that the cost of overestimating your threats and being wrong is far cheaper in the long than the cost of underestimating your threats and being wrong. 


    For many people, this lesson is learned In the form of regret on their last heartbeat. 
     

    Better to give things that can harm you more credit than they are due.

    Well, I'm not sure he ever read the thing.


    He proudly says he doesn’t read books. Safe bet. 
     

    Unless it’s part of his Schlick to make everyone think he is dumber than he is.

    His Bolsonaro approach is making things worse. If you want the protests to stop, try to listen to what they have to say. You'll accomplish much more by listening than by ignoring and even threatening them with "sending the military, vicious dogs and ominous weapons". 


    If. 

    You and @KK are assuming he wants the protests to stop. This is a big, mistaken, assumption. Trump has a variety of tools at his disposal to make the protests stop. Some peaceful and civil. Others violent and deadly.
     

    Take a moment and contemplate why he would want to egg things on.

    Trump is not the inventor of the ongoing US racial injustice - Floyd is just one of thousands of such cases, only that most of them don't make the rounds/are not recorded - but at least he is the first president who fully earned all the shit hitting the fan now (again).

     

    Expectedly, the democratic party sits giggling at the sidelines, waiting for his self-destruction, but given Trump's atavistic tendencies he probably will prevail by martial law. 

     

     

     

    Astute analysis.

    I don't but it would be terrible if professional hooligans are sabotaging the people's right to protest. You constantly warn us about the horror of police states but it has become clear that you champion it. People aren't happy? Strike them down with police and military force! You never even said "Hmm, those cops were out of line". 

     

    Peking Duck is an agent of the state.

    Ahem! Ahem!

     

     

     

    Tumult is to be expected from time to time. These things strengthen the empire. The fact that people in Auckland, London, and Montreal are marching in solidarity with their capital country’s people is a good sign.

    There was no need to have this manifestation and looting here in Montreal. Situation is not the same as the US.  This only contributed to make the covid-19 possibly spread to a large amount of people in a short amount of time. It only pissed me off to see people loot  downtown stores for no reason and not practicing social distancing like all the efforts we did for 3 months didn't matter. And then no public persona can anything  because they'll be labelled racist if they criticize the protest.


    Montreal may not want to be a part of Canada, but it is part of our Great American Global Empire.

     

    Anyways, this is my favorite video from all the protests. Don’t fuck with Italians.

     

     

  11. Fun fact to ponder as you look at the rest of 2020 around the world. 

     

    COVID requires physical bodies in the same location to spread. 

     

    Riots/insurrection do not.

    Hindsight is always 20/20, but has the world not learnt anything, from previous pandemics?

     

    We've known how to deal with this shit for a while. Older economies priced in plague and quarantines into the price of goods and services. Dealing with pandemics was a part of the normal cost of business. We enlightened GLOBALISTS have our heads so far up the ass of the Economy™, that we've forgotten. Regular quarantines of incoming vessels was standard practice in much of the world well before we even had a germ theory of disease. For example in Marseille:

    Calamity ensued when quarantines were broken to expedite business: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Plague_of_Marseille

    They dealt better with pandemics hundreds of years ago when it took months to cross the sea than we do today with millions of airplanes criss crossing the world in a matter of hours. 

  13. I am glad I'm on a farm. Still feel too close.

     

    Decided to tune in to the TV today. Watching the news media try to paint a simple "one-cause" narrative around this. They're looking at the last straw that broke the camel's back and ignoring the mountain of straw, stones, boulders, twigs, and rot the straw landed on.

    One thing's for certain, if things are gonna crash they will and should crash during Trump presidency. It would be the icing on the cake of the Biff Tannen years.

     

    It's only May 30th in an Election Year. This is like the teaser act on a modern streaming binge-show with one of those jump-the-shark cliffhangers at the end of each episode culminating in jumping solar systems in the season finale.

    There are some people, in America, who are being very naughty, and not respecting social distancing.

     

    I fully expect superspreader events in the affected cities. It's gonna be a doozy.

    The Pooh will make a mistake if it tries to seize anything during an American turmoil. A common enemy would consolidate the 'Muricans the way a Japanese invader once did the Chinese.

     

    Sadly, things are politically fractured enough here that I am not sure that would actually happen. :( There was inverse-rally-around-the-flag with coronavirus. A contingent of Americans would probably pray for and welcome Chairman CENSORED Divine Leadership just to spite the other contingent. 

  17. A second civil war in the US is inevitable, if we are to come back together for another 500 years. It is a hallmark of stable, long-lived powers. 

     

    Look at the number of civil wars Western Rome went through over its 700 year history.

    Our vassals across Europe and the South Pacific should be watching with keen interest, as whether you fall under the thumb of Putin and Jinping in your lifetime will be determined by the course of these faraway events in the Wild West. You don't want to end up like Hong Kong. I hear if you fall under the Chairman, you are firewalled out of JWFan!

    This is why poor people cannot be kept on the dole for too long. Without struggling to survive they form into mobs and do idiotic things.
