Fiscal Conservatives should be against providing Disaster Relief to Texans
Its their fualt for living along a coast. We should shut down the government, and not spend taxpayer dollars helping rebuild homes for people who built in high risk areas. Disaster Relief shouldnt be political. So lets deny everyone aid, regardless of that states political leanings. PS I dont believe what Im.saying just fyi

Another bizarre idea
As long as we're doing weird game variants. How about:
an anonymous gunboat game where all diplomacy and discussion is allowed on the forum. Folks posting might or might not be the power they say they are, and might or might not be playing in the game.

Why is this creep allowed to post on the forums? The guy was totally out of line. The mods talk all the time about "preserving the quality of discourse" on these forums but then let him get away with a slap on the wrist after sexually harassing someone online. Absurd.

The reason I want a forum without the discussion is because we already have a lot of threads, most being about steephies company, and punching shit, and I find the extra time it takes to mute them all a bit excessive.

Ah, yes, and calling liberals "even worse" than conservatives really makes you an authority on those kinds of things. Especially since you obviously seem to acknowledge a distinction between "liberal" and "left."

That's like making a thread saying you are a shit person and even worse than such and such other person, and then say how I feel people should behave. That thread is targeted by nature against you. It is more along the lines of shitty gossip than criticism.

Most liberals are communists so yeah... Some liberals are still "liberal" though and not Marxist communist...
Pray, why is nationhood a bad thing? In these times, stronger nationhood is a more practical, reliable way to unite people from disparate cultures than anything else. If Iraq had stronger national unity, maybe some of the divides in the country could be healed (let's not have arguments about the past here either. Where the lines were originally drawn is no longer the point). Much the same could be said of the United States. If more people thought of themselves as Americans first, everything else later, then perhaps a more civil society could be had.

If abolishing nationhood is so great an idea, why is it that time and time again throughout history, the sovereignties with the least national unity are the most easily divided and exploited? It's no different than class. The larger the difference between classes, the easier it is to exploit.

The way to the world unity you seek isn't through dissolving nationhood. It's through cementing national loyalty, then creating a supranational loyalty above that, and so on and so forth until we have a functioning world government

"Most liberals are communists so yeah... Some liberals are still "liberal" though and not Marxist communist..."

I like to fight the argument not the person. But this position seems like nothing but trolling.

I could taje the words from your mouth, and explain what they mean. But that sounds like a waste of my time (you know there is a Communist party in the US right?).

Please explain what it is about 'liberals' which you think qualifies them as Communists.

@GF nationalism has been used to gain emotional appeal for some of the worst crimes against humanity. Rwanda's genocide for example.

Iraq as a nation may never exist again, but seeing it split into three seperate entities base on Sunni, Shia, and Kurdish identities shouldn't be a cause for concern. At this point it should probably be US policy...

Trying to save a nation to protect the idea of nationhood is damaging, look at the Austro-Hungarian empire. It was at least two 'nations' (Austria and Hungary) but trying to keep it together was trouble, too many minorities being killed, and the resulting Yugoslavia which came out of that ended well, with Balkanization.

That was nationalism growing up and pulling an Empire apart, and then ripping Yugoslavia apart (despite the Titoism of Yugoslavia being associated with a fundamental rejection of the cold war and creation of a third way in the non-aligned movement).

Nationalism works against internationalism. If that is something you believe is worth striving for. A fair consistant war crimes court which can judge everyone is for the benefit of everyone, and it is self-interested national interest currently holding this back.

Global problems require global solutions. And you'd be entirely right to point out the nations actually work and criticise internationalism as it functions in practice. The security council does little to promote security - just prevents the permanent members from going to war directly with each other...

What is wrong with nationalism seems obvious to me. What is better than it and will eventually replace it is not.
