    Can you explain what you mean by that? Um….the US is a shit show right now. I’m hoping European countries might start taking in US citizens on asylum visas. It’s getting bad.

    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.

  • So basically ‘Out vs In’

    I’ll probably be able to remember that 🙂

  • Thanks, Reg!!

    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. While Mexico is passing more and more liberal legislation, states are banning the teaching of slavery…[Read more]

    Mexico is a civil war zone

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

    I’d definitely say that the US is unique in some ways in Western countries for the following reasons:

    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]

  • Yawn Enco. Your skill at hyper generalising and drawing ridiculous conclusions has become tiresome. I didn’t bother to read the links and I doubt anyone will. You truly are insulting everyone’s intelligence.

  • That’d need an XXL size, Jake, and even then it’d be a squeeze

  • Wokester demanding you stand and raise a fist for the destruction of your city

    I swear you could write the click bait generating headlines for vile rags claiming to be newspapers/sites.

    Preliminary thoughts:

    I am honestly not sure why race was brought up. If the person in the car was “a blonde haired blue eyed man” and that description would also have been given in the post because identifying exactly what they person looked like was important, than maybe it made sense. But all too often mentioning race is tinged with prejudice.…[Read more]

  • Thanks Reg!

    Anyhow, if you folks want to live in some control-freak Stepford Utopia in some place like Sim City, Second Life, Civilization, Metaverse, or some other “dream-in-every-home” program or app, have at it.

    Enco must be a bot. There is no way an intelligent person would stoop to such ridiculous nonsensical stupidity. Enco…come down to Earth.

  • In fact…Canada, the EU and many other cou tries have hate speech laws and media regulations which apply to Twitter. Twitter can only partially get around these. While Canada might not have much muscle, the EU does and will definitely cripplingly fine or even block a site that breaks it’s laws. It has heavily fined large media companies in the…[Read more]

    Unseen, two things:

    Going from a corporation where a board, elected by multiple shareholders to ownership by one person is obviously a concentration of great power and wealth into the hands of one person. While he isn’t monopolising the market, he is definitely acquiring considerable power and potential wealth. Having said that, my discussion of…[Read more]

    The FCC fairness act is an attempt to keep the mega corps and billionaires from buying up all the broadcast media channels and then getting to decide everything we heard. I guess you prefer that.

    The greatest investment Musk could make and gift he could give to humanity is torch twitter to the ground. I take it far beyond Autumn’s description as a place where discussions might not happen but those deriding other’s views and I would say that is a giant proportion. I have virtually never learnt anything from twitter but have only had some…[Read more]

    What Reg said. I cannot understate enough how much of a petty attention seeking douchebag Musk is. He has written no shortage of odd, vile, slanderous, manipulate and creepy tweets. Best thing anyone could do is delete their twitter. I did years ago after having the misfortune of handling the social media for a few departments. The world would be…[Read more]
