Sometimes you make interesting points.

Sega partnered with Retro-bit and gave them the molds and all the specifications for the original 6-button Genesis and Sega Saturn controller and is releasing USB versions.  Amazon supposedly already out of pre-order stock.   Order one of each before they're out of stock never to be seen again like what happened the first time Sega re-released a Saturn USB controller.  People claim they're identical to the original parts except now in USB.

https://twitter.com/RetroBitGaming/status/1106237824590852097
I see what you're trying, but you're off here.

If you don't want one someone like Infofront in the thread probably will.  Virtually every D-pad on all PC compatible USB controllers released is complete garbage, so this will probably be the first exception.
Never mind, I might've misinterpreted your post then. I thought you were implying that I only care about mundane things such as retro game pads that are often associated with weird hipsters (which I got some of the classic consoles because I've grown up with them though).

I redact my statement if that was not your intent and thank you for sharing if it was meant to genuinely spread awareness of something you feel others might want.


With interesting points I meant such as we discussed a bit earlier today in case you were actually trying to imply what I first thought by the way.

I wonder if authoritarian vs libertarian is on a pendulum as well. Smarter people with smarter choices leading to more libertarians.

Libertardians are dumb people who think they're smart because it's nothing but a theoretical construct that doesn't exist in reality.  It's a fraction of a second power vacuum that's replaced by a strongman.  If you waved a magic wand to force the US to be "libertarian", then all it means is that someone like George Soros is your new ruler (not that he isn't already).  Libertardians are essentially just useful idiots lowering the drawbridge to be conquered by an external force, similar to how "anarchists" were used to try a create a political vacuum to be conquered in Russia and bring in Jewish communism.

"6. Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one's party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, SO-CALLED LIBERALISM, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism."


"14. In any State in which there is a bad organization of authority, an impersonality of laws and of the rulers who have lost their personality amid the flood of rights ever multiplying out of liberalism, I find a new right - to attack by the right of the strong, and to scatter to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct all institutions and to become the sovereign lord of those who have left to us the rights of their power by laying them down voluntarily in their liberalism."

Fair point. But the difference between government authority and George Soros is that Soros weasles his way around to impact the world to his liking. But he has no immediate authority over individuals (unless he kills them) and people are still free to play within the status quo and break out of it.

In the case of an authoritarian government on the other hand things look a bit different as they can exert control over individuals directly. Which makes it much harder to "outplay" them.

^I edited my post to add more information.  "Anarchists" were clearly used as useful idiots in Russia in order to destabilize the existing order and bring in Jewish communism.  Libertardians will serve the exact same role as they did anywhere you go.  You do not seem to comprehend the human organizational structure is:

Individual > family > tribe > village > city state based on the same ethnicity

The 'nation' is an entirely ethnic construct.  Without a homogeneous population or ethnocentric majority, a nation does NOT exist.  All nations without them collapse, which is the only reason places like China and Japan still exist after hundreds, thousands of years.

I agree with your hierarchy here.

But I don't see why the issues you mention are relevant on an individual basis. Individuals come first, and the environment is too hostile they can find ways to have their way within it or move to a new environment that allows them to live their life and pursue their goals freely. With an authoritarian government one has to worry about government overreach. With Soros one can just play their life out as it were. There will always be people with different objectives obstructing their path, but Soros is a much lesser evil than any authoritarian government could potentially be. At least on an individual basis.

I wonder if authoritarian vs libertarian is on a pendulum as well. Smarter people with smarter choices leading to more libertarians. And then things swinging back because people somehow return to creating too many problems and thus forcing a necessity for authority. Then authority overreaching, people slowly learning, and rinse repeat. Hopefully we're smart enough as a species not to go there again.
Do you have a moment to talk about our good lord and saviour the horseshoe theory?

Near as I can tell both the extreme left (Stalin) and the extreme right (Sparta, no modern analogues exist) are authoritarian. Personal liberty can only exist between those extremes, in times of peace.

George Soros IS an authoritarian government.  It's called international Talmudic Jewry.  Do you actually believe he sets up fake NGOs in nations all across the globe in order to try and destabilize them by importing infinite 3rd world Nigerians by himself?Huh?  Italy, Russia, UK, etc; you really believe he single handedly navigates around Italian and Russian mafias circumventing all their power structures as a single outsider?  The routes are media, banks, UN, IMF, World Bank, CFR, etc.  Just because they don't wave an easily identifiable flag around when they destroy your nation doesn't mean they don't exist.  

The worst is the complete idiots like Beto O'Rourke and Justin Trudeau who pretend they're on some type of 'exclusive', 'elite' team when they're just being played as useful idiot, empty suit frontmen to destroy their own countries.

Worth noting that china consists of many different ethnicities, and that what we today call japanese are immigrants from other asian countries that supplanted the original japanese population.

But as a general rule, yes. Ethnicity matters.

This is why the Marxists refer to you as r0ach-lite.  Ever notice there can't be too many black people in Africa or too many 'Han Chinese' in China?  There can only be too many white people somewhere and this is a major problem that needs to be 'fixed' with more diversity?  Everytime kike shill HairyMaclairy brings up his stupid shit about "diversity", you can tell his ass to fuck off straight to Africa where he can lecture them there's far too many noggers there.

Yeah, the questions also aren't sufficiently well-defined for my taste.

Some years back I went to the doctor to get my insomnia checked out. Ended up at some ADHD specialist.

The questionnaire was so ambiguous that I could've crossed anything without distorting the truth depending on how I'd choose to interpret the questions. Needless to say, I could choose the outcome so I went ahead and got a Ritalin prescription just to be sure.

Surprisingly, it knocked me out. First time in my life I went to bed and just fell asleep.

Not taking it anymore because I don't like having to watch my diet to negate the side-effects, and while it makes me more productive and focused it makes me think more linearly and thus tampers with creativity.

Tl;dr questionnaires are shitty ways to collect data. But unfortunately the best we have for now. Probably going to change in a decade or so though.

The questionnaire seemed to have been valid because if I take a ritalin or adderal as a non-ADHD person it's going to make me wide awake for like 8 hours.  So in order for it to make you fall asleep, you really do have some sort of ADHD.

I don't know enough about the details, but would be surprised if our problems weren't mostly deliberate in ways at least similar to what you describe.

However. George Soros can't show up at my door and tell me what I can and can't do. An authoritarian government on the other hand can dictate most aspects of my life and forbid me from leaving the country.

As is, I can just fly over to Japan when shit hits the fan here, where none of the Western problems exist. Sure, they have that whole birth rate and aging population issue. But that's clearly being solved by them (and not anywhere as bad as in South Korea in the first place). They also have work ethics that are unhealthy to say the least. But I'm wealthy enough not to care about that at this point. The biggest problem over there would be the illegality of recreational substance use, but I'd be surprised if there wasn't a safe travel destination in the west to play that game from time to time. Not that it would matter if things got so bad that I'd actually have to move. Some things take priority over exploring the space of human consciousness and experience.

I'm not saying that people like Soros aren't a blight on the world. But I still don't see how they're comparable to obvious authoritarian governments. Unless his end-goal was to destroy all countries. Which he is too old to accomplish anyways.
