  1. Most of my family are deeply religious (In a deep blue northeastern state no less) so securing a banging education and discussing academic and scientific theory at the dinner table was never really a part of my upbringing unfortunately.  "Either work with your brain or work with your back!" was the rationale I received for staying in school.  The town I grew up in was pretty hickish and stupid though, so it's not like the public schools offered a strict and advanced educational curriculum ...whoever was the darling who was attractive, good at sports, and was well connected with the community received priority. xD

    And I am not an expert and I am not going to research it so I may be wrong about China being ahead in this field ?

    Unless they have a secret cloning lab nobody knows about and would be completely speculative and anecdotal to accuse them of having. 

    No, they're specialty is AI and robotics, and from what I've seen it's mostly Westerners who are obsessed with cloning, I mean look how desperate they were to clone the mammoth.

    Scientists want to resurrect the woolly mammoth. They just got $15 million to make it happen - CNN

    I mean what Western scientist doesn't want to be the great modern humanitarian and use cloning technologies to enhance both the scientific and medical fields??

  3. I dunno China appears to be leading the tech sector because like OP said Westerners aren't really interested in STEM fields and winning anymore.  It's all about self gratification now.

    Is the future of the West enlightened hedonism whilst China is the worlds backbone?? Questions questions.

    I like the way the " baddies " in Far Cry games always have such unique and interesting personalities ...I love Pagans eccentricities In FC4 

    Obsidian "baddies" knock the Hell out of Far Cry pseudo villains.

    EDIT:

    I am playing Path of Exile as a Duelist, which is a class clearly catering to my standards.  Let's hope I can actually get through it this time and not get bored 1/3 of the way through due grind fatigue.

    What do you think we should do to fix the failed systems of Constitutional Democracies  because I can only imagine how much anxiety this must be causing you and I am one those people who believes in solutions 

    I know, why doesnt the USA  become  a one party state like China with no rights of citizens to vote, no freedom of speech and no free media. Comrade I think you and I should espouse this type of political ideology...it could be the solution to our problems :thumbsup:

    I don't know Bruce I don't have the answers but what we're doing now sure isn't working, and I find it disturbing that the Anglosphere as a whole still cucks to the U.S. government when they've clearly been in the wrong since the turn of the century.  It's like they have no spine and just let themselves be herded into failure.

    In other news, the Episcopal Church is near extinct

    Why is the Episcopal church near collapse - Beliefnet

    What's funny here is that they were SO SURE that they were the future of the Christian world and would gain memberships in droves because of their liberal views.  Whelp, the complete opposite is true.  The Christian world and modernity are proving to be quite incompatible it seems.  The vast majority of Evangelical Christians are dogged conservatives and Trump supporters.

     

    Also, China has loosened up on the Xinjiang province.

    Why it now suits America to cool the talk of Beijing’s Uighur ‘genocide’ in Xinjiang — RT Op-ed

    Whilst accusations of 'genocide' were completely inaccurate and far fetched and dangerous propaganda people stupidly swallowed up without a second thought, it did brooch on what you could call "Human Rights infringement", let's hope China improves it counter terrorism methods in the future.

    So any hopes of a GOP return to sanity appear to be vanishing.

     

    The level of outedtouchedness I see is insane sometimes.  Trump IS the GOP, just like Nixon and Reagan WERE the GOP in their respective timeframes.  The grassroots majority of the GOP base is all in for Trump, as long as he stays active he will be their messiah.  I don't like it either but he seems to be some kind of symptom of a failed system that is broken.

  7. Communists stage Moscow protest against vote-rigging in Russia election (msn.com)

    See the source image

    Eh, always remember peeps, Russians will always seem to have it far worse than we do.

    We managed to get rid of Trump with a little scuffle but in Russia, the ruling government literally does seem to have rigged the elections, as there is no way in Hell all those young tech savvy people voted unanimously for Putin with online voting, as the results suggest.

    Why have I turned my guns on Putin?  Because I like the CPRF better than I do UR and the era of cooperation appears to be over and Putin supporters are now invoking crass right wing rhetoric against CPRF supporters.

    All it takes is gaining big traction in elections then people show their true colors.  "Sure I like you, as long as you remain small and not a threat of course!"

    Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

  9. 2021 Russian legislative election - Wikipedia

    How did I miss this?  Communist Party of Russian Federation did quite well this year.  Since 2017 -18 or so more and more Ruskies want some form of Communism back, not the bad old USSR but probably a more reasonable one that's in line with modern sentiments, a bit more economic leftism probably merged with the current sentiments of Russian nationalism.  Zhirinovsky's party and United Russia both took major hits in favor of the CPRF.  Awesome.

    Another thing I missed:

    German election results ‘not the most encouraging’ for improving relations between Berlin & Moscow – top Russian policymaker — RT Russia & Former Soviet Union

    What's with the Green Party these days? I remember the old days here in the U.S. when it was a cool anti neo-liberal leftist party led by Ralph Nader, now it's just like an extreme form of liberalism and hawkish towards the East.  The one here in the U.S. also appears similar to the one in Germany, just more bog standard.

    Another juncture I overlooked.  Damn shame.

  10. The Reasons Why FBI Went to Back to 9mm | SOFREP

    I've always had mixed feelings on the FBI but I agree with their decision to revert back to 9mm with a better ammo selection.  Some gun nut U.S. yokels are criticizing their decision to leave .40 S&W but I am quite confident that a Glock 19 with good +P ammo is the right handgun selection.  Now we just need sweeping law enforcement reform and perhaps my opinion on law enforcement overall may improve ;)

    Yes, this teeters on being political but I just posted in that thread so I figure this is weird, random, and interesting enough to leave here :)

  11. Trump: "I love Wikileaks!"

    *installs Pompeo as CIA director*

    It was obvious Trump was a fraud and represented peak decadence of the U.S.A. as soon as he fired Michael Flynn, which was almost instantaneous after his inauguration.  The question is how did he actually manage to pick up several million more votes in 2020?  American braindeadedness?

    A good source of info I continuously read states that the U.S. Empire died on January 8th, 2020 when Iran attacked U.S. and the U.S. did not retaliate, and the U.S. as a nation died on January 6th 2021, when a mob of philistines attacked the Capitol.

    It's such a dead horse at this point, really.

    EDIT:  The good news right now is in Germany

    German Election 2021: Live Results (bloomberg.com)

    A "Traffic Light" Coalition of SPD, Greens, and the business friendly FDP is what Orlaf is gunning for, and I hope they are able to achieve, as Germany would have a solid Libertarian Left government that would end the era of Merkel's thoughtless boring face.

  12. I'm too lazy to dig up old threads but I did predict earlier this year that Olaf Sholtz would be the next German Chancellor leading the SDP and form a coalition with the Greens, and this was way back when the SDP was lagging in the polls.

    I'll take that as good news if they do win, Germany going more left could have positive repercussions for the Anglo world as the EU is still technically allied with the U.S.

  13. Red Flags abound, and I hope the Kremlin is not directly involved.

    Mali and The Wagner Group (dailykos.com)

    Quote

    The name Wagner is reported to have been the nom de guerre of one of the group’s early commanders in the fighting in eastern Ukraine, Dmitry Utkin, a former lieutenant colonel in the Russian military intelligence service, the GRU. Utkin is alleged to have been enamored with Nazi Germany, including Adolf Hitler’s favorite composer, Richard Wagner. In 2016, Utkin was pictured at a ceremony in the Kremlin intended to honor the courage of military personnel and civilians, but he hasn’t been seen in public since.

    Sucks to be them. :shrugz: Thats why we need UBI, UHC and UFH.

    These are not long term solutions to curb the root causality of social ills inflicted by the current economic structure of the U.S.

    A lot of people like to point to some European countries like Denmark as a success story, but what people don't understand is that a lot of these generous welfare states are only successful because they make a killing off of the curtails of the American Empire, just like middle class people are only middle class because they are sandwiched between the rich and the poor slums, hence:  Europe, the middle class of the world.  Without the U.S. and without poor countries they would not be able to stay afloat like they do.

    Yeah, you just beat me to it. I was just going to say that nobody said or suggested the US is more repressive than China and even if they did the fact that you can say that publicly means that it's not true.

    Both the Russians and Chinese have plenty of citizenry who critique their government, they just do it "flying low" like on the internet (netizens) and in small circles etc.  In fact, the government often likes these critiques because it helps them gauge public opinion better and in turn direct policy accordingly.

    Really not much different from the U.S., I mean technically you CAN go out on a podium in town square with a loudspeaker in the U.S. and trash talk Uncle Sam, but you bet your sweet rear end that you're gonna be on The List if you choose to do so.

    This is definitely aping Betrayal at Krondor. Can it be anywhere near as good?

    Looks interesting.  Of course I'll probably get bored of it after 1 hour or so like I did the original but I'm liking the trend of reskinning and modding old gamestyles into the current and some of them are certainly a breath of fresh air.
