I just went on /hi/ and it's full of threads that should be in /civ/ or /phi/ instead. If this is an attempt at creating "unique institutions" for the sake of it as per >>2 then it's a classic case of delusional escalation of commitment, aka "I don't need to do anything about it because the community will figure it out themselves like they have in the past amirite guise?"

That's a shitty and a-historical take you got their my friend.

Capitalism was established after the abolition of feudalism. It became ingrained in society through he use of violence. E.G The enclosures and various laws passed to basically outlaw homelessness, force people off their land; create the means by which a group of people which had no property and thus became reliant on the system of capitalism; and through various other forms of primitive accumulation.

After the overthrow of the aristocracy many people where advocating alternative modes of production reminiscent to early ideas of socialism; utopian socialism or mutualism; ideas that centred around democracy and decentralization.

Capital had to be forced onto the human race. You have it backwards.

Anonymous 19/08/20(Tue)18:40 No. 1649 ID: 0719c4

You say this as if the wealthy and powerful who forced it on the poor and helpless were not members of the same human race; they were.

You're also leaving out The American Dreamâ„¢ (and whatever they called it during the Industrial Revolution); where the top capitalists sold those same poor and helpless people the idea that there is a ladder, made of hard work and lofty ambition, that they can climb out of their hopelessness and into the upper echelons of society.

Not to mention that no one at the top is really happy. Look at Duck--top of the free world--he look happy to you? Jeff Bezos is the richest man on the planet; his marriage failed because he was desperately looking for hookups with strangers on the internet--is that the kind of thing a happy person does? Infinite greed means never being satisfied.

Capitalism makes people miserable at every level, and it was invented by humans to disenfranchise other humans. Really, it isn't all that different from the feudal system--we just swapped a noble aristocracy for a merchant aristocracy.

The Tianamen Square Incident is being propagandized pretty hard in western media lately. Shit's posted everywhere, even 7chan/b/: >>/b/790842. Last week this lady comes forward to give credit to the stories that the military resisted orders to storm the square; reposts of Tank Man all week everywhere else; old sources dug up and regurgitated in every mainstream outlet.

I see what you are doing; it isn't going to work.

Either someone is trying to drum up anti-Chinese sentiment, or drive a wedge between the Chinese people and their government, or convince China to apologize for oppressing its people. None of those things are going to happen. It hasn't worked for thirty years and it isn't about to start working now.

People in the west, as offended as they may be, will not stick to this longer than it stays in the headlines and two weeks from now, no one's going to care. The Chinese people only remember that it is dangerous to discuss the matter and they will never accept any version of the story other than the party line. The Communist Party of China doesn't give a fuck, and will never apologize for something that didn't happen; that's right it didn't happen, because they erased it from history.

Also, maybe it actually didn't happen: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/there-was-no-tiananmen-square-massacre/

To be honest, I think a few hundred civilians were killed as a message to future protesters, but more importantly everyone who showed the slightest empathy was removed from their posts, disappeared, and/or 'reeducated'. Military officials, television reporters, civilians outside the action zone, everyone. There is no one left alive in China to speak against the official story and there hasn't been for thirty years. Think about this: no one under the age of thirty in China has ever heard about it; they are not going to believe you no matter how you try to prove it to them. They have all been raised to think that westerners are trying to undermine the prosperity of their country, just like they did during the Opium wars.

In fact, every military and economic conflict in which western powers were involved in China--even as allies of the Chinese government--have been recast as invasions, incursions, and attacks on Chinese sovereignty. This is also how they will see the western media dragging out the Tianamen Square Incident once again. No one in China will ever see it the way our media tells us to see it.

Nothing of value will come from drumming this up again.

Medicare covers health care. She was notified about her health care costs and the expenses that Medicare covered. She could have then turned around and donated, out of her own pocket, to a charity the same amount of money. So government pays $80 for her insulin, she writes a check to a charity for $80.

But it's not like she had to go to a participating medicare provider. She could have gone to wherever she wanted and paid for it all out of pocket. But she didn't do that either.

Because, ultimately, she was as morally bankrupt as the philosophy she espoused.

>ultimately, she was as morally bankrupt as the philosophy she espoused
Bankrupt, or inept? I find people who endorse her are looking for an excuse to be morally bankrupt because they are morally incompetent. Knowing right from wrong is hard when you live by reptilian instinct alone; her "philosophy" lets people with this condition ignore the difference and yet pretend to be enlightened.

The ironic thing is every time you think you're being witty you're posting evidence of your disorder.

You don't believe in Libertarianism yet you vote for Libertarian candidates. When its pointed out that you're not voting for candidates who represent your interests, you insist that you're voting for people who represent your interests. Because they represent "anybody else."

That's how Trump because president you know. He represents the "anybody else" you think is your mythical solution.

Your plan is full of flaws, yet you're unable to grasp anyone else's point of view. Only your point of view is valid. Everyone else's views are invalid. You don't even try to explain why anyone else's views are incorrect. You just repeat what you already wrote like somehow this time it's going to be absolutely correct.

Notice how I'm explaining why your point of view is wrong. I'm not just repeating what I already wrote. This is how people with normal functioning brains have a discussion. I realize you're completely unfamiliar with the concept but that's why you should go back in therapy.

>He represents the "anybody else" you think is your mythical solution.
No he does not. He marketed himself this way, and enough people were dumb enough to buy it that it got him elected, but it was never the truth. He does not get to call himself an "outsider" while also bragging about how many politicians on both sides he has given money to over the years. He has friends in politics and big business all over the world. He is the furthest thing from an outsider.

Gary Johnson represented my interests in the 2016 campaign: have a president that isn't a Republican or a Democrat for the first time in over a century. It helped that, unlike most of the other third parties available at the time, at least the Libertarian platform was fleshed out enough to imagine they had a chance of running the country with a degree of competence. On top of that, having a third party president (knowing congress will still be mostly Republican and Democrat, because of course change takes time) is the only way to restore the system of checks and balances. The president isn't supposed to be deciding what congress does; the constitution very clearly spells out that it is the other way around.

>anyone else's point of view
Your point of view is that we have to maintain the status quo, because this is the way things are and have been since your great grandfather was a baby, and change is too hard.

Fuck that. Fuck you. Change is hard? Deal with it. The status quo has failed the American people. How many recessions will it take? How many inconsequential foriegn wars? How many mass shootings? How much homelessness? At what degree of class division will you realize they're playing you?

These parties have divided us beyond the point that we could ever exercise our constitutional right to amend the constitution by a 3/4ths referendum. That's not by accident; the people have been divided and conquered.

You wake up with a rocket launcher hanging in your wall, next to your gigantic weed farm for your company called KushFarmsInc which has made u a shit ton of money that u can keep to yourself since u won't need to pay taxes. Then you log into the internet to your online gun shop and see that you've made over 200 bitcoins over night, then you trade your bitcoins for a shit ton of Hentai and get high. What about that sounds bad?

You: Pick up some retarded, bullshit Trumpian policy that can only destabilize the world, undermine western society, and eventually leave the planet in ruin.

Someone with a higher IQ: Confronts your idiocy with reality.

You: Demand sources to prove that reality is real.

Fool who thinks this argument could go somewhere: Provides sources that prove reality is real.

You: Doubt those sources, demands sources that you trust--which have only ever regurgitated the idiocy you wholeheartedly believe in.

Fool who still thinks there's a possiblity you could be convinced otherwise: Gives an anecdotal example from real-life, personal experience proving that reality is real and you are stupid.

You: Dismiss anecdotal evidence as irrelevant, purport that no one has attempted to oppose your point of view; disregard sources you disbelieve and anecdotes you also disbelieve as having ever been part of the argument.

Fool who would beat you to death with a hammer if he could find you: Tells you to kill yourself for the sake of humanity.
