  1. Re: ‘Oikophobia’: Our Western Self-Hatred as a sign of Western civilizational decline

    The studies are not at odds. My point is that it’s not a clear cut issue - certainly not as clear cut as the DNC/BLM would have people believe. For one thing disparity =/= racism. For another, the...

    This is false. My position is predicated on fact; scientific as well as statistical. 65% of Polish people believe abortion is immoral. It doesn’t matter whether or not you think Poland should be in...

    It’s ironic you would dismiss what I’ve said as pointless only to double down on your tangential rants. If you have no answers to the questions I asked aside from more of the same rants, I can only...

  9. Re: Poland: Popular protests against abortion ban.

    Treating abortion as a civil rights issue has always been puzzling to me (if you don’t want to have a baby, don’t have unprotected sex. Problem solved). Allowing it in the case of rape or incest or...

  11. Re: ‘Oikophobia’: Our Western Self-Hatred as a sign of Western civilizational decline

    Precisely. The problem is that some racial movements in the US are rightfully treated as terrorism or at a minimum criminal, while others are lauded as civil rights heroes, and are entitled to full...

    Doesn’t seem very hypothetical. Considering Berlin alone, civilian casualties from allied bombing are estimated at 50,000 or so between 1940-45, Dresden another 25,000, according to Wiki.
