This is just a curiosity, which may mean something or nothing, but have you noticed the pantograph movement in the 1 year range?
It appears that Bitcoin is moving down on the same fashion it went up last year on the same date, as if a group made 1 year investment and is now leaving (at high loss):

That you call "liberal media" has nothing to do with "liberalism", is just "liberalism", once again, taken the blame for being abused.

Any liberal would let you do whatever you want, do things your way, as long as it doesn't collide with others' rights or harm anyone.

In the last 30 years liberals made it possible for gays to not be locked in mental facilities, to not be harmed over a simple paraphilia, but now things are getting out of hand, it's like you give a finger they take an arm.

Someone opens a gay only bar: modern! fashion! amazing!
Someone opens a straight only bar: homophobic! call the police to close it! get a bunch of useful idiots to riot in front of it! (see the liberalism here? This is "unliberal liberalism" at its best)

You already have men competing on women sports, it doesn't matter how many hormones you took, a man disguised as woman is still a man, a man with severe mental issues, but still a man, you can't change his bone density.
This hurts women rights and throws them out of society.
"Oh, but trans are women" - says an idiot... Right, so trans men can win at women physical sports, trans women have no chance at men sports. So long for your equality, isn't it?

There was a time, on Ancient Greece and Rome, where gayness was widely accepted, we don't exactly know why society turned to highly homophobic - we blame religion, but for people to adhere to religion and empowers it, something must be at their minds -, but it did.

First, mental disorders aren't genders and that "science" is a mix of philosophy, politics and nothing. Yes, people have differences, each and everyone, but still gender is binary, like it or not.

I used gays for the example because they're probably the biggest oddity trying to get their way down society's throat at the moment, but not the only. This abuse is leading traditional Liberals out of the scene and opening space to "unliberals" pseudo-liberals (those who need "safe spaces" and act in a way that you MUST do what they want or else) and fascists (other than safe spaces pretty much the same shit as their counterparts).
As liberals throw the towel, another team will emerge also to join the band wagon, Islam, and snowflakes will come to a time when all they can do is cry for arrest this and that and the whole world for hate speech or whatever, but nobody will hear them anyway.
45  Other / Politics & Society / Tolerance & Abuse - Beyond Liberalism on: November 11, 2018, 10:02:52 AM
Tolerance is the pillar of a liberal society, but it has been lately being abused, putting in danger this very same pillar.

Let's start to understand that tolerate doesn't mean to like something, tolerate means to allow others to do things their way even if you don't like it.

A fair example of this abuse lately are the so called "gay rights". WTF are "gay rights"?! I take a c*** up the a** so I want special rights for it?! Get real! What's next? A special parking lot for gay people? A gay soccer league? oh! Wait!...
Oddities can be tolerated, you and your boyfriend like to dress like women and chase each other around the house? Great... do it! But don't force the society to play along. And no you're not "gender fluid" or any other idiotic thing, you're just a guy or a girl, regardless. Deal with it!

So to a point, this issue - and many - are no longer on the tolerance realm, instead they're trying to shove oddities down society throat and demand society to like it instead of tolerate it.
This puts a danger on liberalism, as more and more people starts to react to be getting oddities shoved down their throat and when it turns around liberalism will be taken the blame.

Competition and cooperation are complementary and needed; you cooperate with your team and compete with the other teams, by competition your team have a reason to achieve more and better.
In sum, cooperation is needed, but competition is the fuel of invention and effort. Don't fall into snowflake ideologies.

All derivatives of communism are flawed, just by reading common people comments on Facebook... I really don't think that direct democracy or stateless communism are good ideas, probably you would end up with death penalty for nothing and everything down that road...

@coin8coin8 ; I'm not looking for fascism to implement it, but to give it a strict definition.
Lousy definitions provides a lot of misunderstanding. Currently the "trend keyword" is populism, because most people doesn't know what this word means, all you see is a lot of populist politicians talking against populism.
47  Other / Politics & Society / Re: In search of Fascism on: November 02, 2018, 12:04:52 PM
You're moving towards nowhere in defense of Communism, Communism is considered by all means an Utopia - never worked and, most likely, never will.
At the same time you seam to be having some difficulties on understand the reasons, not an insult.
Just your ideal system doesn't work, sorry for that.

When you say something like "but your system also have leaders", assuming you know my political position. Yes it does, but my system doesn't aim to make everyone equal.
Likewise, you can be far right and a speculator, but not far left and a speculator. It's about coherence.

You keep confusing your personal belief with political sides...  Roll Eyes

All Communism States will end in Fascism, Fascism is a consequence of Communism (even Mussolini was a Communist leader before). Now I'm short in time, but if you read the Economy Socialist Class it explains why this happen, why Communism brings nothing but famine and why its leaders will either resource Fascism or die.
49  Other / Politics & Society / Re: In search of Fascism on: November 02, 2018, 11:57:25 AM
You are a bit slow, aren't you?

For your utopia to work your system has to have no leader, otherwise your utopia is flawed as at least one has more rights than the other...

It doesn't mean Communism can't have leaders, it means it just doesn't work.

Yes, that's the more common one.

In the 1st one however, 17, 19 and 20 and 10, 13 and 11 are paradoxes.
This due to the relative weight of economic to personal freedoms, on the first group you can do whatever you want with your money but you can't do anything without prior state authorization, to the opposite end you can do anything with your personal life but you can't control your money.
One is like giving you money to go to Disneyland, but close its gates, the other is like keep Disneyland open but don't let you've money for the entry ticket.

My real curiosity about Revelation, resumes to know what kind of mushroom did the author took...

For the rest, takes to be dumb for believe on a 2000 years old prophecy with 0,00% accuracy so far, all "this is a prophecy of Revelation" was nothing but a far shot.

Actually that's because as soon as shit hits the fan, left wing (which means nothing) will start to claim that is right wing (which means also nothing).
Left wing doesn't see Kim Jong-un as left, nor Maduro.

The great advantage of a good for nothing split system is that supporters, specially the extremists, from one side and another won't gather around while enjoying beating each other's.
Likewise we get the ultimate chair rotation at the system, Democrats, who had policies that would be considered hard or far right are now "lefties", Republicans went the other way around, and probably 100 years from now people will see them again in the opposite ends... Enjoy the divide to conquer system!
57  Other / Politics & Society / Re: In search of Fascism on: November 01, 2018, 06:50:45 PM
This keeps derailing to off-topic...

You became obsessed when I said communism and fascism overlaps on so many ways, that came to defend communism with your "-0 is not 0" meaningless chart and now keep trying to defend your utopia.

Even if it's not, per definition, wrong for communism to have leaders, not even they're bad or good, it however means the end for your "egalitarian society" as that one is over the others. All you can use is the "tu quoque" (you too) argument, but what's the point of that argument? I'm not against leadership, but I'm not also talking about "power to the people" then sit a guy over them all and pretend it's indeed "power to the people", am I?

Back on topic, here's what I believe (and don't come again with the "fascism has a definition", because it doesn't and this discussion has going around for ages, there's no "Fascist Mein Kampf" describing it), are core parts of Fascism:

  • Totalitarianism and Authoritarianism, obvious points
  • Centralization of everything on the State (All with the state, all on the state, nothing out of the state, nothing against the state)
  • Lack of awareness of the limits of law; means the fascist assumes it can legislate about everything on everyone's life, this includes even how he must wipe himself.
  • No space for relativism, everything is absolutely right or wrong, as the law covers or aim to cover everything, no grey area and no safezone to anyone.
  • Unlike Nazism or Communism, Fascism is diffuse, it can bend and twist to fit the context or humor of its dictator - this is due to have no Manifesto or Mein Kampf

The other components, such as state police, removal of opponents and so on are already included on Authoritarianism.

Here comes again the meaningless chart...  Roll Eyes

As long as you have a communist leader you've a "primum inter pares", one whose decisions count more than the others... Or none of your utopian communism if you will.

As for the other entry, again is "fascism is all bad I can think of", or in other words, a mere insult.
59  Other / Politics & Society / Re: In search of Fascism on: November 01, 2018, 03:35:10 PM
Hitler wasn't elected, his party had a minority winning, which he turned into an absolute winning. But himself, running to President, lost the elections.
Mussolini was indeed elected, and looking at Italy today, he would probably win the elections again, at least the elected parties doesn't fall too much apart of him.

But this isn't the question, the question is about defining an ideology. Have a specific and strict sense of what we can call Fascism (ideology) or fascism (insult).

Democracy has its weaknesses - candidate suppression, vote suppression, plain and old rig and so on - , actually, like sir Winston Churchill, I don't like it, I accept it because I can't think of nothing better. If you put a bunch of burglars voting the only thing they would be voting about will be on ways to rob their victims.

I think of Fascism more as the opposition of Liberalism (European Liberalism, not be confused with US flavor), rather than communism. The only way to have communism as you portrait it is by direct democracy, otherwise as long as you've a communist leader, you no longer have any communism, but a red flavor of Fascism.
