We kept all men's burdens and tossed away their privileges. Sad...

It's very surprising that nobody can seem to find real documented evidence of just one rape. It's all insulting agitprop like "3 guys ran a train on a girl with the face of an angel and shot her in the head" that sounds like it came from one of their porn brainstorming meetings, plus a healthy dose of Jewish victim fetish.

The NYT article reveals those CIA bases are not just defensive -- they are for offensive scouting of targets to hit within Russia proper. That's not defending Americans or even Ukrainians: long range missiles are for killing Russians. Beyond such offensive operations not being mission critical, they're a provocation to war. And they were set up years before 2022.

It was an open question exactly what kind of threat a Western-controlled Ukraine poses to Russia, considering we have ICBMs. Well, here it is.

BTW you can't convince me that this outfit https://files.catbox.moe/wgh9rr.jpg wasn't internally censored , i've never seen a top like that with something under it before, its obvious that it originally was just the black top and someone from the ethics department came along and censored it.. Don't forget the ethics department was also the ones who demanded the devs restrict the breasts of default Tifa design as well which is why the default Tifa design is also censored compared to the OG tifa.

its obvious that creators create something in square and then the wokes and merchants in suits in square some along and make woke demands and censorship, seems to me there's infighting between actual gamers who create games in square and woke merchants in square

Good insight honestly, this is top down from the C-suite to the cultural police hires to the developers.

I definitely think it's possible that this is God's plan for you. Having said that, you're talking about salt and stone... I'm not sure if you're picking those metaphors on purpose but the Bible says exactly the opposite. You have a heart of stone before you accept salvation and God gives you a heart of flesh. You are the salt of the earth under God's commandments and when you leave, you actually lose your saltiness. Also re: still having fight in you, the Great Commission is the Christian's highest task on earth and that definitely can't be accomplished in heaven.

It sounds like you got into Christianity on a philosophical level but you didn't accept the Bible as truth and therefore don't feel a burden to change. Without that, everything else is a nonstarter.

With finance, my thought is that a lot of people who are really good at a skill don't fully understand the business side and could use help with that. For example, if you were into building cars and knew a guy who was a savant at it, he might be looking to get his own shop or contract with a guy who has shop space. People will often make bad or blind investment decisions and hope their skills will carry the day. You could put the guy some knowledge. Ditto with building miniatures, organic foods, developing video games, any small business idea out there.

Sounds like decent possibilities to me. A couple of friends said Thailand was the best SEA country on their tour. Poland has its good points too.

Having a nose for finances is not common, needless to say. If you paired it up with another craft or skill then it could be extremely valuable to people in that field.

I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you the only true fulfillment is to align yourself with God's purpose for your life. That's not a matter of asking what God can do to give meaning to your life, but rather understanding the full nature of sin and what Jesus did to save you. But people usually need to come to a place of acute need before they're open to hearing this, so if you're not there yet then good luck with deciding on the move.

edit: I saw that you stated you went hard into Christianity for a time. Why it didn't "work" for you I won't assume, but maybe a better starting point for you is whether you recognize ultimate truth. Once you appreciate the truth, then what follows is natural logic.

I truly don't know how it's possible to go lower than gay Luke Skywalker, undisguised lesbian fantasy porn, every main character being gay, and open contempt for beauty and real fans. If they went even farther and made every character trans and fat, that would actually be an improvement. At least it would be funnier.

Relationships with people are only second in meaning to your relationship with God, so you seem to be in good shape on that. However, the strongest friendships are formed by filling each other's mutual needs as well as pursuing the same quests in life. From what you described, it sounds like the people around you are satiated on lib dopamine sources and don't seem to feel much in the way of a higher calling, so you're going to strike out on both those fronts. As far as making true friends while traveling and blowing a ton of cash, idk that sounds very hard.

One way to find decent people who truly need you is to get really good at a particular skill. If you have any drive for a craft, I'd look into that.

Going international does carry risk, but you're in a more comfortable position than most. Your investment income alone could tide you over hard times. As far as the risk analysis goes, I'm no statistician, but I look at it this way: you have some % chance of ending up in a bad spot if you make the move, but your chance of living a gray, torturous existence is 100% if you stay in Canada. Thus, moving is a fait accompli.

Do you remember the first time you played a video game as a child? Do you remember the joy you got from it? Do you remember just wanting to wakeup and play those video games that you got great enjoyment out of. Could you do this again, today? To the same extent? A lot of people can't and imo, that's normal.

This happens when you don't value anything. If there is something you truly value, you will be looking to find it or create it in purer forms. For example, video games. The favorite games from your childhood were great, but even better games can be made - revolutionary ones, even. Unfortunately, that is really hard and the people in the industry kind of suck at it now. If you loved games, finding a worthy developer to bankroll or embarking on the challenge of creating the next great FPS mechanic or RPG system would easily absorb your attention.

It doesn't sound like you're into them though. From what I can tell, you find pleasure in things you can simply buy like travel and sex. These things will never be that special because no humanity is required, just cash. The lack of meaning in your life, therefore, is not surprising.

The frontier or pioneer mindset is a large part of what you lack, imo. That may be because many pioneers were historically motivated to build a better future for the next generation. The desire to give to others comes from God, and as He withdraws from our world, that is fading. Another powerful source of fuel for the frontier mindset, though, is adrenaline. You could always switch your career to something that is guaranteed to put your life on the line, like deep sea crab fishing. For some people, that makes life meaningful.

At the minimum, you should move somewhere else. There are thousands of other places you could live, literally an inexhaustible array of possibilities, many of which would be more interesting than the boring drone apartments you seem to be living in.

When we talk about our culture collapsing, guys like this are the victims. His entire life from work to politics to entertainment was run by evil, dysgenic drones. No wonder he killed himself.

No, you can't do away with your military. No nuclear country does this. You need to maintain some level of competitiveness with your peers. The ability to exercise force judiciously is essential. We are not going to nuke the Houthis over a few drone attacks.

In the bigger picture, the ability to run a conventional military shows that your nuclear arsenal is ready for battle and not just a paper tiger.

The_Shadow_of_Intent 6 points ago +6 / -0

And your point is?

Why do people think you can just sit on top of nukes with a dead man's switch in lieu of having a conventional military?

Reading about animal cruelty in the biographies of serial killers makes me think we should have some kind of offender registry for animal abusers. Or just put them in prison.

Some people have told me that most animal abusers don't go on to commit crimes, but I am skeptical of that.

So you commented on a post about self-immolation but your comment has nothing to do with it?

Well, when a Supreme Court justice declines to define a woman, I can't say you're wrong. But a functioning society would easily be able to distinguish artistry from obscenity.

Japanese people have their unique take on porn, but just like anime itself, that's a result of cultural exchange with the US. The advent of hardcore pornography is a postwar event, despite cameras existing for a hundred years prior.

Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition was about overbroad language in the CPPA. It did not contradict the key point of Miller v. California: the government is allowed to restrict obscenity.

A statute that targeted obscene, pornographic depictions of children with enough specificity to avoid ensnaring the works cited by the court (Romeo and Juliet productions, American Beauty, etc) would be constitutional.
