Just been to New York

I have a friend visiting London right now and she loves it. Guess the grass is always greener eh?

Tell me about it.

Also you guys put vinegar on your fries instead of ketchup and use your forks backwards.

Malt vinegar is optional, and you can have ketchup i

Just been to New York

Welcome back.

Where'd you go for nights out (so I can steal your recommendations and claim them as my own)?

And London always feels like shit whenever you come back from abroad.

"Why They Listen to Jordan Peterson"

It shouldn't be surprising to anyone that western society is moving in more and more of a conservative, traditionalist direction. These things are cyclical --traditionalism stagnates and causes great social injustice, while liberalism turns into disorganized madness.

I'm not sure that's actually

A question about school shootings.

Do you think the US population has had enough school shootings to do something about it yet?

No, and I don't think it will. Or at least not for a very long time.

The mass proliferation of (and ease of access to) firearms is essentially the main contributor to these shootings, and a general le

"Why They Listen to Jordan Peterson"

Amusingly that interview was edited to about 5 mins long when I caught it broadcast. Would've been a different story had Channel 4 not uploaded the full footage. Nearly all their interviews are adverserial, so Peterson isn't the first, but he was certainly the most adept at dealing with it. Apparent

The DOW has now lost more than 40%% of what it gained during Trump's
presidency

All the stock market really indicates is how the stock market is doing. Trump's main mistake, deliberate or otherwise, was to conflate it with wider economic indicators or stability.

End of cheap money and rise of interest rates. This feels more like correction, although if I recall correctly, th

Socialism has actually worked before

The national version has worked before.

Yeah. Shame about the dragging-the-whole-developed-world-into-a-war bit. And maybe that genocide part as well.

White Supremacist Murders More Than Doubled in 2017

Interesting. I didn’t know that. Do you know what kind of security there is on the border? Like, how tight or lax is it? Is there a vetting system?

It's a series of domestic and juxtaposed controls, as we're an island - the only land border is between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Irela

White Supremacist Murders More Than Doubled in 2017

We technically don't have an open border as we opted out of Schengen. You can't pass from France to the UK without passing some form of border control.

We don't know how Brexit will affect border policy as the UK government is intent on drawing out negotiations forever and cannot decide on what o

A very general note on Nazi morality

And yes, you and I are capable of it as well. I would go as far as to say that it would be sheer hubris to claim that we are not. Evil is a human quality.

Hannah Arendt described this phenomenon as "the banality of evil". I'd recommend reading Eichmann in Jerusalem in addition to On K

MLK - A Communist, Plagiarist, sexual degenerate.

Did you read the two attached images before you made this comment?

Yes and they prove very little.

MLK - A Communist, Plagiarist, sexual degenerate.

The JFK files expose my claims in the title if anyone here actually read them.

As if the Hoover-induced paranoia of rambling FBI dossiers proves, without a shadow of a doubt, he was a bona fide communist.

Trump calls Haiti and El Salvador "shit hole countries" to lawmakers
aiming to restore protection for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and
African countries

He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday.

Good luck with that.

Could Oprah win against Trump in 2020?

When you say "have learned nothing", I take that to mean Dems are making the same mistake in Oprah that they did with Clinton.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you're just saying that electing any woman (whether or not she has political experience or not, is charismatic or not, is li

Could Oprah win against Trump in 2020?

So I don't know what you're implying by saying the democrats "have learned nothing," since Hillary Clinton embodied everything you just described.

These are necessary conditions, but not sufficient ones to win a general election.

Others have beaten me to the chase. Clinton is relatively compe

Choose an old white man or else?

How about someone with actual political experience, credentials and principles, and can be described as potentially competent in office?

Christ, no wonder everyone turns off whenever an irrelevant identity politics non-sequitur rears its head...

If Oprah is the best answer the DNC can come up with, then the establishment Left have learned nothing.

Britain considers joining TPP post-Brexit... despite not being anywhere
near the Pacific

No worries, I usually spend a day responding anyway. I dare to type it on my phone.

And I'll take that as a compliment Jet, although let's hope we don't come to blows.

Still waiting...

We haven't left yet. But could we get your view on things actually happening (as opposed to outdated forecasts from 18 months ago) such as the collapse in pound sterling, declining growth rates and business investment, banks preparing to move critical ops to to the EU, FDI (sec

Any chance of addressing the subject in the OP SA, or can we infer you agree its indefensible?

Remainers don't seem to understand that Brexit was never an economic argument. It was a cultural argument. The vote to leave the European Union was a pro-democracy, pro-sovereignty, pro-nation vote (al
