There is a point with mental health issues where you've elected to avoid treatment, and you are now responsible for being ill.

But responsibility is kryptonite to leftists, so here we are.

Acceptance of retardation sums up what's wrong with society today 80% of the time. The other 20% is corruption.

Rhetoric. They've either rejected the holy spirit outright or implicitly by calling good evil, and evil good. The only reason they invoke Jesus is because they think you'll listen to their arguments if they ascribe them to Him-- it's just another skin-suit ploy.

Strikes me as satire. The woke cult doesn't do heaven, forgiveness, or redepmtion.

Indeed. The people implicated by the panama papers and Epstein's black book are not stupid. At best they are corrupt and self-interested to the point of immorality.

This is true.

I live in a rural backwater of a blue state. County would be hard red if not for college student voting skewing it towards purple (the population is just that low.) The state's urban centers have complete electoral dominance over the rest of the state-- the only reason the state is governable at all is because the urban voting blocs ecede any accountability ("Vote blue no matter who"), so the state government is run somewhere between a corrupt banana republic junta and a late soviet union puppet state. Every problem's become a nail for the hammer of "more government" to hit.

I've often wondered just when my state passed that point where increasing taxes causes revenue decline due to lower overall economic activity. I feel like it was late 80s, early 90s. It would be an interesting data science sort of experiment, but nobody who matters would want to see the results...

It's a war where only one side is fighting. 4th generation warfare, waged in a way that tries to be as covert as possible.

My mind is drawn to the SPLC guy with the post-it of the declining white majority over time, for some reason.

Yeah. When the alternative is understanding the implications of the Panama Papers and the scope of the criminal activity Epstein's black book suggests.... people just want to stick their heads back in the sand.

The cognitive dissonance which a realization of the depth and breadth of societal corruption causes... well, it more or less ensures that only zealots and neuro-atypicals are willing to follow the evidence. The destruction of your worldview is not something a normal person will countenance without resistance and/or denial of evidence.

Batch mixing to avoid SIDs clusters is standard practice, isn't it?

Thinking that in the age of big data, bad batches couldn't be identified and distributed in a controlled fashion-- well, that's just naïve. Greed dictates that big pharma won't replace bad product if they aren't forced to and Government will sweep it under the rug because they want the power & population control a mandate creates. Even without active targeting of "undesirable" demographics, it's a nightmare.

What's preventing a simple imagined operation to ensure that bad batches are distributed anyway? That's no oversight-- the foxes are already guarding the henhouse. If this did happen, how would you even know?

I think you've got a solid analysis of the left's direction. Liberation Theology and the solidification of "Woke" into a secular religion seems very possible. In a lot of ways, it's the inevitable result of the earlier Liberal Super-Protestantism and Universalism of the 20th century: a religion robbed of its cultural root-- Christianity without an understanding of Christ.

What I am not sure is how big that 'tent on the right' has to be. Perversely, I think the core element of the right's rebirth must be quite narrow if it's to succeed.

If we get a 4th Great Awakening, the majority of Christian churches have been at least partially converged-- so even if a preference cascade in rejection of wokists/liberation theology causes a societal movement to the right, the odds of the nexus of that mass movement being corrupted by some flavor of neo-marxist social-justice nonsense will be high.

A narrower range of followers, with a strong gatekeeping mechanism, might actually allow the development of an appropriate spiritual response to the woke... but I worry that the usual cultural actors will be looking to Scofield any actual Awakening.

I still laugh at the wokists looking at DnD orcs and going: 'these are black.'

Excuse me? The rapist warmongers who are extreme barbarian stereotypes.... are coded black...? According to whom?

Says more about them and their views on black people than it does about orcs.

I love how they don't even try to mesh sexism, racism and slavery being always evil with the drow.

They just can't square 'always evil' being racist in the case of drow/orcs with the reality that the cultures, as written, are evil.

I've got a bookshelf full of RPG books for various systems, mostly 3.5, call of cthuluhu and 2.x Exalted.

I own a 5e player's manual. That's it. My interest in buying in through D&D Beyond is zero. The odds of me wanting a 6e player's handbook? Also zero.

If they want to cater to progressive fuckwits, they don't need my support.

If you do pick up a Civ 4 pack to get Colonization (which is excellent), then consider looking into Caveman2Cosmos as a 'bonus.'

The scope is about twenty times bigger than mere colonization, but if you really want to simulate different civilizations domesticating different animals and crops, then bumping into each other, there's no better mod.

Paradox not infested with woke

I would say they aren't fully converged, but there are wokists deeply embedded in Paradox. Just look at what happened to the Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 project. They're at the point where you have to go product by product, team by team to screen for leftists.

Honestly, Paradox's DLC policy is almost enough to get me to stop playing their games. I am watching them for signs of wokery like a hawk, because they're a bunch of Swedes.

Arch covered the NDA bullshit you're alluding to pretty well.

tl;dw?

Anyone who knowingly signs away their integrity for lucre deserves what they get.

Agenda 21 ... doesn't actually mention depopulation.

Ask yourself what our feminized leadership would do in the face of projections of catastrophe. They already treat the masses like the husband they settled for, so why is poisoning us off the table?

You're the one who tosses around the reduction of the male population by 90%-- tell me why high status women like Merkel wouldn't just toss more low status women into the kill box until they aren't in danger anymore?

I understand that you try to compartmentalize your cynicism to women, but our leadership has been deliberately feminized. Don't you think that compromises societal response to crisis? Isn't that a serious problem?

I agree with what you mean, but I don't like that wording.

When a part of an institution (like Capitalism) has been subverted to the point of working against itself, can you even use the same word to describe both parts anymore? I just can't keep calling the 'wolves in sheep's clothing' sheep.

ESG is essentially warping capitalist methods to break the culture so that the revolution can occur by destabilizing business as usual.

Where China is Marxist core with Capitalism coating it, ESG is a way to take a Captialist core and apply a layer of Marxism.

I disagree.

Limiting the franchise to males would not be enough to make Democracy 'work fine.'

Democracy, as a form of government, is fundamentally vulnerable to 'Demographic Shift.' A change in the voter base is indistinguishable from 'regime change.' Yes, giving women the vote altered the voter base so thoroughly that it amounted to losing the battle of the sexes-- but the same thing can happen racially, ethnically, or religiously, too. The Bantus in South Africa, Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda, and the Islamification of Dearborn, MI all show how Democracy is vulnerable to Demographic Siege.

A besieged Democracy which cannot police who becomes a voter will not maintain societal cohesion. Athens, the progenitor of Democracy, had the casting of potsherds to banish one person a year-- literal Ostracization-- and wasn't shy about banishing people in criminal circumstances, either. (Remember-- Socrates drank poison rather than be banished for his crimes of atheism and "corrupting the youth") Where is the modern Democracy's parallel to exile or Ostracization? What would the Athenians make of Open Borders or Multiculturalism?

There are passages in Revelations about the churches that have strayed.

Unsurprisingly, they're damning.
