Re: If you are an eastern power, what alliance in the West is best for you?

Depends on which power you are and who your allies are. Austria wants to see a strong Germany. Turkey wants to see a Western triple, rest don't matter. Russia doesn't want an E/G, but rest don't matter. Italy wants E/G. The rest make some amount of sense to me, but why doesn’t Russia want an E/G? W...

If you are an eastern power, what alliance in the West is best for you?

See title. In Spring 1901, before the first moves, which alliance do you want to see in the West as an eastern power? (I.e. England/Germany, England/France, or France/Germany) Does this depend on which specific nation you are?

Re: Multiculturalism Ruins Nations

This is such blatant racism. The Islamic golden age brought us some of the biggest developments in mathematics and astronomy in over 2000 years, culture definitely has an effect on discovery and invention, but not race/ethnicity. I never specified any race or ethnicity, nor did I deny that Arabs ha...

Re: Multiculturalism Ruins Nations

I'm not even arguing against immigration, or arguing for increasing fertility rates. I'm arguing that its completely absurd to push for immigration while at the same time discouraging having children. It makes no sense. You have immigration to make up for a low fertility rate. Encouraging immigrati...

Re: Abortion sucks

Abortion is about the only part of the progressive movement I agree with. I support the abolition of the welfare state, and that would be ideologically incompatible with opposition to abortion.

Re: Trump White House uses fake video to smear journalist

While I agree that it’s a hilariously huge stretch to call what Acosta did “assault”, he should have been ejected from the White House press pool long ago to give room to someone more worthy of the spot. Ever since President Trump took office, Acosta had been nothing but rude and disrespectful. He ...

Re: Nike and Kaepernick

I always find it odd that when an American company takes a side in a political battle, they often come out weaker than before. Most corporations stay away from things that may damage corporate image It’s because the top executives and CEO have a political agenda of their own. Profits don’t matter a...

He also happened to abandon his own wife after coming back from Vietnam because she had become a cripple in the meantime and took someone much more politically connected and 20 years younger than himself.

Re: Australia leads in foreign aid in Pacific, USA lags behind China

Daffy Donald Trump talks loud about confronting China's expansion in the Pacific, but it's actions that count, not irrational rants on Twitter.

Croak has already been silenced for calling another member a racially derogatory term.

People please follow common sense. I’m not even going to cite the rule he broke.
Just so we’re clear, would it be okay to use the word if we’re not referring to another member of this site?
