  1. Re: The latest anti-liberal rant thread (get your daily dose here)

    This is akin to asking a German whether dressing up as an SS Officer to "raise awareness" about National Socialism is a good idea. No, it really isn't in the context of German history and modern...

    Re: Crusader Kings 3

    Don't ever buy Paradox games on release. They're pretty good after a year though.
  4. Re: Jeffrey Epstein arrested for sex trafficking, assets seized

    Yet you seem so convinced that Clinton was. Curious.
  5. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I just got a name change.



    There's nothing self-evident here. Everybody is politically motivated, even those who claim they are "neutral". The only thing you've done here is state the obvious....
  6. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    In PPP yes, nominally, no.
  7. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    This is wishful thinking. Western companies stand to lose hundreds of billions, if not trillions if they pull out of China. This is Trump logic, global trade and investment works both ways. You can't...
  8. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    You're gonna have to articulate your thoughts a little better for me. In what way am I displaying a double standard?



    You are aware that criticism of the media has been present for its entire...

    Re: Should morale be a principle of war?

    Yeah, I suppose we'd have to create a different thread to have that discussion, which is also a very interesting one, imo.



    That's a pretty interesting read, thanks.

    Re: Total War: Warhammer II announced

    That's a good question and something I'd be interested in myself.

  12. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Her positions are very similar to Hillary Clinton's. While certainly not identical word for word, they occupy the same space in the political spectrum. The difference is, as you said, she's younger,...

    As a child I thought the special effects and the gore was awesome. As an adult I thought the social commentary and satire is remarkably pertinent to those living in authoritarian countries.

    Re: Should morale be a principle of war?

    Israel has a conscript military. The concept of a volunteer force is overrated in my opinion. As a theoretical concept, morale is certainly important and something that should be cultivated. As a...
  16. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Well sure, but the the point is that both "poles" are capable of producing bad and good men. So sure, you can have a "Socialist, black female, poor and stupid". But you can also have Obama. And while...
  17. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I think film critics just shouldn't dictate your opinion anyway. If I remember correctly, one of my favorite childhood movies, Starship Troopers (1997), was panned globally on its release. 20 years...
  18. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    What does that have to do with what I said?



    I'm not referring to anyone in particular. It's a hypothetical.

    Again, I'm not sure what you are referring to.
  19. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    I wouldn't risk a carrier group over Taiwan. The people of Taiwan themselves are split over what the relationship with PRC should look like. The sensible thing is to allow the relationship to develop...
  20. Re: Creation of the Senator Class Proposal

    Oppose. What this proposal needs is a Caesar class where one man shall be elected to unilaterally rule the CYRIA. The current system is an ineffective democratic mess and this proposal does not...
  21. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Neither of those things happened. What I did was point out the hypocrisy in your rhetoric.

    As you said, you're asking for art to be criticized regardless of politics. Yet in this very thread, you,...

    I don't think you see the irony.
  26. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I'll be more than happy to share my opinion on any film and seeing how they diverge from professional critics. In fact, maybe it would be a fun exercise. Citizen Kane, a boring black and white movie...
  27. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Umm, yes it does. In an aggregation system that's binary, you are going to get extreme variance like this. So yes, good job highlighting the binary nature of Rotten Tomatoes, but I don't know how you...
  28. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I don't think a % rating from a review aggregator determines film ranking in an objective way. Otherwise all future film makers should be required to study Toy Story for at least half of their...
  29. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    If you think the justice system is the ultimate arbiter of human morality, I'd urge you to take a look at all the times the justice system got it wrong. Moreover, the way you've lived your life, is...
  30. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Yet declaring a movie "lackluster" and undeserving of near universal critical praise is somehow not smug at all.
  31. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    You know, it's really amusing to see people complain about the SJW echo chamber by creating their own echo chamber.
  32. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Sure, but FDR came from a wealthy family, as was Kennedy, and Bush, etc. Yet the Presidents who came from "humble" beginnings are no better. Certainly you have Obama and Johnson, but you also have...
  33. Re: US House Speaker Announces Formal Impeachment Inquiry

    The irony and Trump's lack of self-awareness here is delicious. Seeing Trump supporters regurgitate it is hilarious. I really don't know who to laugh at more, Trump, or the people who swore fealty to...
  34. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    Debt-peonage is part of the design. When China is holding meetings on a new security arrangement in the Pacific and Indian ocean, do you really think debt leverage is a weakness in these...
  35. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    Many of your points are true. However, India is unlikely to pass China in GDP, at least not by 2050, which is a benchmark date for many planners and economists. Also, while many countries around...

    Re: ISIL War in Iraq and Syria II

    You're assuming Europe has to sell weapons to anyone outside of Europe. It doesn't. Greed is what drives arms sales, not necessity.
  37. Re: What if the world treated the U.S. like a rogue state?

    It took some 40+ years to get ten supercarrier Nimitz supercarriers built. That's after decades of operating and building carriers. I highly doubt China can replicate such a long history in a mere 20...

    I'm not sure what you're asking. I'm saying EU countries should stop exporting weapons to Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
  39. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    On the contrary, I'd argue its about time we stop holding our leaders to some higher, moral plane. In my opinion, we have to elect our leaders on their merits and their ideas. I don't really care if...

    Re: ISIL War in Iraq and Syria II

    Numerous EU countries have stopped export of weapons to Turkey. They should really do the same to Saudi Arabia and UAE.
