The Phillipines
Just because i've been away for a few days, somehow there is no thread about this... One news headline (paraphrased) 'ISIS captures city in Philipines!' Is rather click baity... But goes in to refer to the 'Most Catholic country in south east asia'.

This is what colonial/state oppression looks like. As far as anarchist are concerned they are one and the same, the state oppresses its own people, the colonial empire oppress other peoples. In China they have this lovely grey area...

Why is Terrorism the only time people feel a visceral response?
I noticed recently there was an incident where a man crashed his car into multiple people injuring many and killing someone. But because it was not terrorism, people did not seem motivated in the same manner against alcoholism as they would have if he were a terrorist. If he had indeed been from any Muslim country at all, and also under the influence of alcohol, one has to wonder if people would just automatically assume it was a terror plot.

American reporter arrested for asking questions to Trump HHS Secretary
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/10/business/media/reporter-arrested-tom-price.html

Freedom of the press is an integral part of the 1st amendment. Just wondering how rightwing media handled or ignored this story about Dan Heyman, the reporter that was arrested for asking persistent questions to Tom Price, HHS Secretary.

On how PPSC scoring does not encourage players to throw games
In our recent discussion (threadID=1432961), many mods and fellow pillars of the community claimed that when you have two Great Powers in a game that have between 12 and 16 supply centers, one of these Great Powers has a (D) points-incentive to throw the game. I disagreed and this puzzled my fellow users, but only Lethologica took the bait when I explained my position. Here it is again:

Juggernaut is actually a horrible alliance
Despite the fearmongering ive seen in Press games about Juggernauts over the past 5 years ive been here...I cant help but note its low rate of success and how its paranoia often benefits France or England most. Please share games where Juggernauts fail miserably. But also include ones which work out in a 2wd (if there even is such a situtation)

Is it Treason to sympathize with the Confederacy?
Shouldnt it be treason to sympathize with the Confederacy? We fought a war and defeated them. Hundreds of thousands died more than any war fought by America. For people who still wish the south had won- chant the south shall rise again or fly its flags isnt this treason?

Should otherkin be forced to give up their human rights?
Are there any otherkin on this site? I'm genuinely curious to understand this culture more. If you identify as something non-human, do you think you have a right to get the privileges that all humans deserve? Or do you believe you're in a separate category and thus have different standards and base rules to start off with?

@Brad, I've been a little out of pocket today but didn't want to ignore your post and did want to congratulate you on finding the "New thread" button.

Hillary would have been better for the country than Trump (knowingly only what we knew on election day). Bernie would have been even better but I thought that it would have been too easy to demonize him (among the deplorables) as a "socialist Jew from New York". Among her positions which I think were better:
1. increased minimum wage (I wish she wanted $15/hr like Bernie)
2. support for improving Obamacare (as opposed to Trump's repeal and "replace")
3. taxing the rich, not the poor
4. support for democracy (Even on election day we knew that Trump liked strongmen)
5. I could go on...

Well Texans do give a comparative illusion of civilisation & literacy to the rest of the USA... Like anyone from the Bronx comes across as an intellectually gifted thinker in comparison to "yo average Texan"... So there's that to be considered. Anyway modern day Texas is just a suburb of Mexico, if Trump offered a discount, maybe he could sell it back to Mexico.

I included that source for the second half of the article, not the bit about Texas.

As far as removing the U.S. from NAFTA with a single executive order, I'm not so sure. It's been proven time and again over the past few months that the court system won't let the president do whatever he wants with an executive order.

Most executive orders do not invite judicial scrutiny.
