  1. Re: COVID-19 Ushers In American Fascism: DOJ Wants to Suspend Certain Constitutional Rights

    Yes, but Greece is a small country that has been struggling with a harmful currency, a larger neighbour that wants to re-colonize them, and numerous other problems for decades. The US of A are still...
  2. Re: COVID-19 Ushers In American Fascism: DOJ Wants to Suspend Certain Constitutional Rights

    India and Brazil of course. Despite the local upper class hysteria, Germany isn't even remotely close to fascism, at least not any recognizable traditional variant.
  3. Re: COVID-19 Ushers In American Fascism: DOJ Wants to Suspend Certain Constitutional Rights

    Pretty sure this won't end in fascism, given the resilience of the US political system.
    Besides, even if it did, the US would be in good company, given how the other two biggest countries in the...

    I don't see what's noble about destroying your own body (nevermind the potential environmental damage done by the waste products). And surely you have to concede that there's nuance in self harm. I...

    That's my point as well. In Germany, owning firearms is basically a rich people's hobby, because of the related expenses - you have to get a license and a gun safe, you're practically forced to join...

    Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Well to be fair, Labour did appease its core voters on the issue of anti-Semitism.
