    Ehhh….Americans who went to Afghanistan during the operation and supported and wrote propaganda for the Taliban, or equally for ISIS, were persecuted and jailed. I don’t see how this is different.
      • I guess it would be similar. Google is not cooperating though. Got any links?
        • There is little in common between the Taliban and Russia. When the full story is suppressed in the case of Ukraine, the public doesn’t hear that ethnic Russian…

          No Simon…it is for MOST people. Something easy to overlook while enjoying your privileged life. It’s like going to a singles bar with some couples and telling the whole audience to be grateful for the happy romantic relationship they are a part of.
            • You’re saying that for most people, life is just a cruel soul-destroying burden? I don’t believe that’s true. If so, it’s bad news.
              • I think if that was the case, the suicide rate would be through the roof. Most people would be actively suicidal.

                Wow…that is about 1 in 500. That is higher than I had though. Maybe I will actually “read the article”. 😉

                Nice lazy, incoherent dig at “Socialism”.

                Yeah that really was a groan inducing “dig” at “socialism”. Take something that in general immensely benefits people and highly reduces pointless suffering in countries where these programs are not controversial and generally supported, find a few examples where things don’t work perfectly (or even nee…[Read more]

                They were helpless because they were compelled by law to attend a school that was a “Gun-Free Zone,” where there was not even an armed security guard present

                I really must point out that in safe western countries (basically every western country but the US), guns are not necesarily prohibited. Canada, Finland, Iceland and Switzerland are good examples where hunting rifles are abound and in a few of them, ex military personnel can (or must) hold onto their handguns. Also, in some (though not all)…[Read more]

                I’m not ignoring your arguments. You are mostly just venting and venting isn’t an argument.

                It’s sad that you can’t see that tactical decisions one dislikes will be needed in order to forestall major losses.

                You seem to know little about how change is brought about. I’m not arguing this shit with you anymore. You are supportive sometimes, other t…[Read more]

                Pointing out how we are treated unfairly and unjustly and fighting for change, is an inconvenient annoying rant for Unseen. I’m not sorry for that.

Blacks and browns, gays, and women have made a lot of progress, but it came the only way it really can: with public acceptance and empathy. And we aren’t there just yet with trans people, and the reason is that a lot of the issues are uncomfortable…on both sides.<…

                                The US definitely has some problems unique to the Western World and it is actually VERY concerning to many people in other western countries. A few examples: anti-…[Read more]

                                Yeah I really enjoyed the jurisprudence seminar during my bachelor. The difference between continental and anglo-saxon legal thought in particular was VERY interesting.

                                Enco is absolutely relentless in sticking his heels in and standing by a stupid point. Thank you for reminding us Enco of a skill none of us would like to have. Is conceding even a mundane point outside of your abilities?

                                Mexico definitely has serious problems to deal with. So does the US. I felt safer in Lebanon and Iran than I did in Newark and Detroit. I’d rather walk down the streets of Guadalajara than be a black person in a traffic stop by a US policeman.

                                That’s the most over the top overgeneralisation you’ve made yet Enco.

                                1. States have incredible power over laws including the regulation of abortion which is a federal jurisdiction in almost all other Western countries. This will inevitably lead to a sort of: can get abortion, students can learn about slavery, laws…[Read more]
