That's the balance. That's maybe even the economic engine.
I agree that there will always exist counter-culture. To a certain extent, I do believe that is balance -- but I don't personally feel balance is where we're heading in the short term (1-10 years). We're entering a phase in which, in my opinion, far too many people are turning words - fascism, force, socialism, free, etc. - completely upside down. Maybe it's because I'm a millennial that I feel there has been no other time in my life when this many people were blinded by partisanship. Collectively speaking, we can't have debates anymore since if you're not fully for something that equates to absolutely hating any and all possible people whom would benefit from such a program. As an example, look at the so-called "Muslim ban." This "ban on Muslims" skips a majority of Muslim majority countries. Still, if you're supportive of taking 90s to look into if such a process is effective at protecting people within the United States, it's portrayed as hating any and al Muslims.

It seems like rational debate is over; it's all or nothing.

In my view, the left collects minority groups as if they're pets. And they will defend their pets strongly while they remain pets. But when their favored groups think for themselves, the left usually lashes out and shows their true colors on race.

I agree. I think this is most visibly seen with the Left attacking members of those minority groups (black Americans, women, gays/lesbians, etc.) when they don't align with their politics.

They're ostracized, cast out, publicly. It's hive think. Maybe we're headed that way. Chips in our fucking brains man!

Personally, I don't think we're heading to a hive mind because we're largely already there. This, to me, is seen via blatant partisanship.

Things just change. They decay. We are the builders of life. No other animal is so close to God in power, evident in our ability to create. We build on top of build. We're at like version 198377340039.00298827beta. There's no going back. We don't save, we have no backups to restore.

The progressives win because new ideas just do.
You know my answer, to separate from society and bring along everyone else who wants to escape this lunacy.

As much as people give me a hard time for supporting seasteading here, you might thank me and people like me someday, if things get bad enough in the US, for creating a place you can move to.

There is always a remnant who comes out of the madness and escapes it, and then life continues on.

I gave up a lot of angst when I accepted that the US was likely on an irreversible path. I think a lot of the anger of the "alt-right" types is caused by an emotional attachment to the fate of the US.

And I remember being in that mindset too. I don't begrudge anyone it or think it unreasonable necessarily. If you want to save the US, that's a far harder goal you've set for yourself than my seasteading goal, I'll tell you that much. I don't need to win elections and convince millions to achieve that goal.

You want to destroy the state to become the state where you're the tin pot dictator. You're not fooling a single person here Anemone. Give it a fucking rest already.

Amusingly enough, I witness an equal amount of self-absorbed entitlement from Baby Boomers on a nigh-daily basis. Every generation is pretty shitty, especially when you make broad generalizations. Gen X is the one that seems to have their shit together the most...but, they're also the ones responsible for raising the much-maligned Millennials, as well.

Eventually, the Elderly Entitlement will strike Gen X, too.

Unfortunately for them they're having mostly miserable professional and personal lives with little hope of living at or above the lifestyle of previous generations, buried under an avalanche of school debt, and working in dead-end jobs that pay shit.
Yeah, that's why some of us are kinda pissed off. We walked into the building just as it was starting to collapse.

I am technically a Millennial, being born in 1984, but I often can't relate well to people just a few years younger than I am. It's like there is a strange invisible cut-off line.
Yeah, we're definitely on the older end of the Millennial spectrum. While I also have trouble relating to the folks just a few years younger, I do take a certain level of issue with the mockery our generation tends to receive, though. Granted, there are far too many "special snowflakes" out there...but they exist because of our collective parents' generation and the fact they enabled this sort of behavior in the first place. We're collectively mocked for Participation Trophies...but we weren't the ones handing them out in the first place.

Plus, I see just as much ridiculous entitlement from folks in the older generations every single day. It takes a slightly different form...but it's still nothing more than entitlement.

To continue with the pet analogy: they have to put them down like rabid dogs. There's just no saving the poor pet when they go crazy like that and leave the plantation. Gotta put the bullet to the head. It's really a mercy to destroy the animal, like at the end of Ol' Yeller.

As for the topic at hand? I stand with Pewdiepie but I don't blame Disney for dumping him; they have a brand to protect. I do blame Disney for their double standard for dumping him but not dumping other very politically loud (obnoxiously so), racist, and sexist members of their family such as Joss Whedon. His seditious, anti-American, anti-white, and misandric commentary has done far, far more damage than Pewdiepie's jokes have done and reach an audience orders of magnitude larger thanks to the bullhorn and legitimacy the MSM gives him.

You just believe he's anti-semitic because the media wants that to be the narrative? Did you even watch his response video to get his side of the story?

They count on morons like yourself to buy into the narrative. That's the goal. he is the largest voice on Youtube and has influence over 50 million kids. That's a threat to the MSM. That is people growing up on youtube and twitter and not on conventional media. No wonder they want to destroy him.

Anyone who watches any of his stuff understands it isn't racist, anti-semitic, or whatever buzzword you want to throw out there. This thread shows that some of you have aged, badly. You don't even understand the internet generation any longer.

He made a joke that didn't go as planned and some guys held up a sign he didn't think anyone would hold up. He should be ruined for that? People should lose jobs over a joke over misplaced politically correct bullshit without any context?

Go fuck yourself.

I really don't, as I've told you repeatedly. I want to destroy the illegitimate power of the state and then empower people to choose their own laws rather than having laws forced on them, neither by me nor anyone else.

When I told you what was allowable and what wasn't, I meant in the kind of city with the kind of laws that I would choose, not that others couldn't choose other systems.

And you this, because I've explained it before when you first made the accusation, so there is no excuse for you to continue to level an ignorant accusation after I've told you my actual position. No excuse except that you enjoy trolling.

No Spectral, I will never, ever give it a rest. Every time you lie about my actual position, I will use that as a platform to explain myself again. You cannot bully me into silence.

Remember that political-correctness is about control:



You're talking about the Wall Street Journal, which is becoming irrelevant--they get something like 60 times less traffic than Pediepie himself gets online--he doesn't need them.

This act is a hit-piece of the old-media against the new-media, and the old-media is losing badly.

I call bullshit. Millennials are self-absorbed, lazy, nihilistic, snowflakes, far worse than any other generation. They deserve their lousy waitering jobs with $100,000 school loans accrued in pursuit of their 'social patriarchy' bachelor's degrees.

Well, Liberals have it horribly wrong on Israel. They shun it, openly, with praise from their peers. How did it come this far?

When Israel was created I believe there was a large amount of support in the close years following, but it has been eroding over time. If Liberals would think of Israel like a child it would serve them better. They are family.

Wait a minute, we know what liberals do to their family, before they can join the family.

It's not like I'm the only one to say this. People have been discussing this for quite some time.

Baby Boomers can be downright rotten.

Sure, Baby Boomers can be downright rotten -- like any generation. I think the difference is that Millennials are more often rotten than Baby Boomers.

Umm, the modern left was born from Jewish thought. Where do you think cultural marxism came from?

The American left supports Palestine because the Republicans kiss isreals ass, its a dog whistle.

The American far right supports Palestine because its a anti jewish dog whistle.

These views are amplified by a media that is very jewish or jewish sympathetic. They portray them as anti semitic. You fell for it.


No one cares about Palestine.

As for allies, with allies like that, who needs enemies?

Sure, but everybody said the Earth was flat until Galileo, too. The number of voices does not correlate to the accuracy of the information.

But don't worry. Statistically the boomers should be dead before millennials in large part. They're get theirs in the end!
