  1. Ok, which one of you guys took out this poor dog? @soon @downzy @Dazey j/k In all seriousness, I feel for the dog.
  2. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I think I finally understand what you're saying. Yes, Socialist economies are not against industry and technology. Well, they can't be really. And yes, they use it etc. But it sucks...and the bulk of what they produce/invent etc in terms of technological advancements, etc has been years, if not decades, behind the West. And don't get me started with the medicine, etc.

    I was actually thinking about the Nordic system and although not perfect, it seems to work. I'm not sure it would work everywhere in the world though.

    The Peterson quote was a quick, tongue in cheek remark he made during one of his podcasts with Joe Rogan. He was basically just saying that it is a performative contradiction if you use iPhones and fly on airplanes if you are truly anti-capitalist. Both airplanes and iPhones are results of capitalist societies. So when you use an iPhone or fly on a plane, that is a type of performative contradiction by definition. The iPhone itself and the network it's on is part of a capitalist world, etc etc That's all that was. Not sure why that bothers you so much. A performative contradiction (German: performativer Widerspruch) arises when the propositional content of a statement contradicts the presuppositions of asserting it. An example of a performative contradiction is the statement "I am dead" because the very act of proposing it presupposes the actor is alive.

    Apparently I struck a nerve. The conversation (my point) was based off of Socialist Authoritarian Nations, current and throughout history ..which have all failed....that's not debatable. You talk about Marxist theory and parts of it that have been implemented successfully within Capitalistic societies. Apples & Oranges That doesn't change the fact that authoritarian socialist countries are all utter failures. So Marxism as a whole, when put in practice as an entire government has failed over and over again and has lead to the deaths of more people than any other forms government. Those are non debateable facts. But you can keep on talking in circles and posting memes....and talking down on other Christian religions....I must have missed the part where Jesus said Anabaptists are more knowledgeable of his teachings than Catholics are. How many more people must die from Socialist Authoritarian regimes for you to admit that they don't work?

    Are you saying people in capitalistic countries don't take days off? Days off didn't exist before Marxism? Go read the Bible and see what God says about the Sabbath thousands of years before your hero Marx was born. Just stop already. And I've already explained why they're hypocrites. I'm not going in circles with you on this. There is no debate. If you want to say that capitalism with social safety nets is way to go, then we can start there. I tend to agree with that.

    I'm not about to get into a debate about this because in my world it's not debatable, not even close. Capitalism rewards free thinking and excellence...which as a result, has lead to the vast majority of technological advancements of humankind. Compare the technical inventions of the US and capitalistic countries vs socialist/communist counties and it's not even close. Not even on the same playing field.
  8. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Oh no, they do....that's why their authoritarian leaders are hypocrites. As a matter of fact, most authoritarian leaders of socialist countries indulge in the fruits produced by the capitalist world around them....they just don't allow their people to.

    Never. Although I wouldn't mind going to Venezuela once they get things worked out...I hear it's a beautiful country. How about you?
  10. US Politics/Elections Thread

    1. Go live in Venezuela and let us know how it goes. 2. Go live in North Korea and let us know how it goes. 3. You'll be calling it freedom afterwards.
  11. This album came out at such a dark time in terms of what was going on with the band and their future. When I bought it I think I may have listened to it 2-3 times then shelved it. It was a frustrating time to be a G N' R fan. I like the album much more now than I did then but for some reason, it still brings up memories of the band's demise.
  12. I don't think that's what happened here. And I'm pretty sure they weren't using FEDEX. Seems as if the shipments were delayed in part because of the Canadian postal strike, etc.
  13. They're not a scammer if they sent you the merchandise. (At least not in your case) And the fact that they've even issued refunds to others that paid more before it was on sale solidifies that they have treated some people well around here. Maybe bad customer service but not scammers. If they don't keep up with their orders, they'll be out of business soon enough, so they are at least partially at fault. It is what it is. I'm not judging you...
  14. Velvet Buzzsaw. 7/10 And Polar: 7/10 Both are Netflix made films. Both are pretty good.
  15. Fedex/insurance won't eat the cost if they can prove they delivered it. They track these packages from A to Z...all the way to the delivery address. And items insured for a large amount usually require signatures. If they don't require a signature, good chance it wasn't insured.
