When it was harder to use, before smartphones, there was a natural gatekeeping that kept the less intelligent offline, which often correlated with being more mature. (not necessarily over 18, and not always true judging by the Usenet flame wars)

Meh. If TheImp were here I'd probably agree with him. They created the problem, they can deal with it. I could also argue that it's anti-male too. It's anti-Human.

I thought Sowell was a libertarian? At least I'm pretty sure he doesn't support "the system" as it exists today.

Qanon isn't even a group. Saying "leaked to Qanon" is the equivalent of saying "leaked to the public".

They've never been true capitalists though, always a planned with free market aspects economy.

Exactly right! I was about to post the same thing, though it's not much of a silver lining. Especially since the bubble, they've been protectionist with special privileges given to zaibatsu and giant corporations too big to fail. Japanese typically don't want to run their own business. Everything is top down and consolidated. This is why they can never be as competitive as they once were. (unless they win by default when the entire western world cucks out) Even if the nationalists were to rise up, they wouldn't treat the economy much differently. We would only have a reprieve on the woke social issues.

"We believe in democracy!"

also

"You deplorables must be isolated and kept from having any control over society."

But seriously though I've always thought it funny that we (me included) drink cow's milk. How did that get started? Like at some point in history somebody saw a baby cow sucking it's mother's teats and said "Hey let me get in on that."

Well you show off pictures of your wife and kids at work, and that's literally the same thing as crossdressing story hour.

While they ban the campaigns of people fired for not taking the jab.

Unironically, yes. To a leftist these kinds of thing are just normal, occasional happenstances that you tolerate in a society. They may talk about how it's all a "symptoms of poverty and powerlessness" or not enough restrictions on guns or knives, but ultimately they just think it's normal and don't care. As long as it's not happening to them it's background noise. Why are you trying to cause a moral panic about rare stabbings when we have important issues like LGBTQ rights and COVID to talk about?

I sort of agree with you, if the opposition can be isolated and controlled. It's always a good idea to keep examples of evil around, lest we forget. Yin-yang. And some ideas are endemic to the human experience and can't be wiped out. For example I don't think you can eliminate Communism by completely banishing it and killing all the commies. You have to consistently deconstruct and teach against the fundamental principles.

Conservatism is a meaningless ideology. You are by definition always chasing the tail of regressive leftists. When they are in control, the only tactics that can oppose them are to progress in completely opposite or tangential directions. (more nationalist which usurps their institutions, or more anarchist/individualist which removes their levers of control)

I don't understand, how do those two things follow? Also what does it have to do with being racist? (I probably just missed a larger point in the conversation.)

I would absolutely buy such a place just to troll them incessantly and drive it into the ground. Or even better, fix it and become a positive part of the culture again. Money well spent.

producing your entertainment

That's been the case for a hot minute. Hence KotakuInAction.

and creating your news

That's been true for decades.

I remember when that was just a sexual fetish. Saying "newhalf" was the equivalent to saying "shemale". "Chicks with dicks". Also called lady boys over there. Cross-dressing freakshows, nothing more.

Oh wait, that's still all they are.

Thinks being nonbinary means cutting your hair and not looking like a Barbie Doll.

Isn't it though? I have no clue what else it could mean.
