    [–] All roads lead to Rome Penguin_Cafe 2 points ago in ComedyCemetery

    The question is, is there anything in all the world they won't blame on liberals and minorities?

    There was that girl a week ago that clawed her own eyeballs out while high on meth. So yeah anything is possible as long as you smoke a shit ton of meth

    [–] President Trump Fires Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, To Be Replaced By CIA Director Mike Pompeo Penguin_Cafe 4 points ago in politics

    Well normal Americans like me want to be, but Trump and all of our leadership don't give a flying fuck about what we want. So no, you are on your own. Sorry

    [–] Megathread: House Intelligence Committee Ends Investigation, Finds No Collusion With Russia Penguin_Cafe 18 points ago in politics

    Well Trump has been starting trade wars the past week or two by declaring it a "national security issue" and I think he's learning as long as he says that he can do anything.

    Now with this I suspect there are going to be far more mysterious "national security issues" in the future with vague or no explanation that they'll use as justification for all sorts of anti-democratic things. At this point we can pretty much kiss democracy goodbye, I don't think we've actually had it for decades, if ever. They will continue to do whatever they want and the American people will continue to do nothing because we are fat, lazy idiots.

    I mean as a Jew, I will reveal that we do indeed run a secretive cabal all across the world. It's just slightly different than most conspiracy theorists think. It's more of a network to help get into the improv and stand up comedy scenes.

    [–] We are our own best friends Penguin_Cafe 4 points ago in wholesomememes

    As someone whose been travelling the globe alone for years and also likes myself... Yeah there's no escape from loneliness.

    You can deal with it and accept it, but the feelings of longing you have to be with others will never ever go away. Loneliness sticks with you always, the best you can do is get used to it and not think too hard about it.

    [–] TIL that Adolf Hitler praised the Native American genocide by the US government. In 1928 he said; "gunned down the millions of Redskins to a few hundred thousand, and now keep the modest remnant under observation in a cage." Penguin_Cafe 9 points ago in todayilearned

    You aren't responsible for the past, but you are responsible for the present. The attitude you have absconds you of all responsibility, but you fail to take into account that there are many lingering threads from the past that still exist and perpetuate injustice today. On top of that, if you are a white person, you have benefited immensely from the injustices committed in the past, even if your personal family didn't do anything wrong or you don't feel particularly advantaged.

    Yes it's good to learn and acknowledge the past, but it's not enough to do just that and wipe your hands of it. You need to take that knowledge and apply it to the world around you, you need to work to undo the things that happened and build a better future. You're not taking responsibility for the guilt of the past, but for yourself.

    Even if you think you are a completely useless and non-consequiential person and can do nothing to right the wrongs, you can at least work to not commit the same mistakes that were made in the past. This whole "white guilt" thing is a deliberate campaign by the ultra right wing to get white people to stop caring about the world around them. Yes, there are radicals on the left too who say crazy shit about reparations and what not, but the majority of people who try to spread knowledge just want you to learn from it. It's about social responsibility, not guilt. Please don't wash your hands of the past, good and bad thing have happened, and good and bad things will happen. You can help choose which.

    [–] There's an ongoing agenda to masculinize women and feminize men. Penguin_Cafe 2 points ago in conspiracy

    If we are talking nature, collectivism is actually the natural order, not individuality. Back in pre-historic times when modern humans first evolved, hunter-gatherers lived in family groups/tribes which most likely shared everything.

    Heck all of civilization is a "collectivist" idea. I.e. people coming together to create something bigger than themselves in their mutual interests of security and prosperity. That's why taxes have been a thing since the beginning of recorded history. No society survives without it's collective resources propping it up.

    This whole idea of a "sacred individual" was first developed 16th century onwards in liberal European circles, and really didn't get formalized in national codes and laws until the late 18th century.

    It's ok for you to support the idea of individualism being the highest right, but it is not a natural right and it is misleading to say. Your natural rights are to the family and community that you have relied on all your life, and which you have supported since you have been of age to produce value. We evolved to be collectivist, that is why you see it everywhere, being an individual is the abrasion.

    Healthcare, safety, free or low cost education, upward mobility, financial security, more worker protections, better protections for minorities and vulnerable classes, and an expanded social safety net.

    While we are at it we could also use: infrastructure upgrade, better return of taxes to the community, banning of high capacity guns, Universal Income, ending of overseas wars and the Military-Industrial complex, an end to corporate welfare, and an end to the propaganda networks we call news.

    Yes, what do you think penguins have been doing all this time? While you enjoyed your heat, they were made in the cold. You laughed at them and put them in zoos, even made them star in a movie with Jim Carrey. How could they not become violently radicalized???

    Fools, you will all freeze. The penguins will rule the earth once more

    My friend you are not a communist, you are what we call in this world, a real human. Sounds like youre sick of being a commodity for whatever corporation you work for because your quickly realizing how pointless it all is. Also yes, while you are busting your ass just to survive the wealthy are eating cake and enjoying the view.

    Don't be afraid to speak out, you are not a Stalinist for wanting basic rights that most of the rest of the developed world enjoys. You do not have your right to speak out taken away just because you managed to get a "good" job. Don't worry the tide will come in soon and things will begin to change. Watch, the change will come. Just when the time comes to fight, be ready. It's people like you who will have to fight the hardest if things are really going to change.

    They love hunting becauae they love killing. Conservatism has turned into a weird apocalypse cult at this point. They plunder the earth as if they only have years left to make their money and they rile up their supporters into frenzied violence.

    How shitty do you have to be to think that whoever the majority is will automatically want to kill and enslave the minority? Makes me really question your current views on minorities.
