I’m starting to understand these various movements, and that mildly upsets me.


MASSIVE tl;dr wall of text ahead (my opinion on the whole thing)

I totally agree. A while back I would have expressed support for the alt-right, but ever since Charlottesville I can’t really say that anymore. It’s no secret that they’re being baited by the alt-left because the alt-left like to play victim, but they just had to go Johnny Bravo, take the bait, and then shamelessly act edgy and put on a show of bravado in YouTube comments and the Daily Stormer.

As for the far-left, everyone knows about them already. They’re dumb, they clueless, they’re angry, and deliberately misdirected by corporate and government interests who want to consolidate power through divide-and-conquer tactics. They instigate, instigate, instigate, and they have the full backing of biased news. It baffles me that the Left hasn’t reflected on news that they traditionally considered NeoCon/NeoLib propaganda, realized that they are being supported by these big corporate interests, and then second-guessed their own motives and tactics.

The far left and the far right are exactly the same thing, the far left is somewhat worse, but they’re both so bad that it doesn’t matter. There’s basically no point in assigning blame now, because everyone is responsible for feeding into this downward spiral. They’re both exactly the same idea, in different packaging. The far left thinks whites are oppressive against the protected leftist groups (which are ironically vying for first place in the oppression olympics), and the far right is simply cynical is general and believes that racial differences inevitably drive people apart.

They are exactly the same idea, they both believe humanity is in serious trouble, that the problem is hate from the other side, and that the solution is violence. Even some regular Trump supporters and libs have been swept up in this. ANTIFA thinks it can force hate out of existence without realizing it’ll create more in trying, and the Far Right simply believe that hatred is natural and that nothing can be done about it anyway. Any thinking person can see how this becomes a superconducting loop. It can’t go left, and it can’t go right. It can’t go up because politics generally doesn’t go up, so the only direction is down.

Now for the skeptics; they are basically the closest thing to sanity in this whole mess, and even some of them are beginning to crack. A Helping Hand, for example, has become very angry to the point of refusing to have discussions with White Nationalists. Problem is, both sides gang up on them, calling them fence-sitters and disregarding them. Both sides are in deadlock that will only end in martial law, and everybody losing their freedoms when government clamps down, and big business curries favours.

I would like to close with something more general: competition cannot be tamed and cooperation cannot by forced. If you use a competitive model because it resembles the natural order, then don’t be surprised when you get all the death and strife that also resembles the natural order. If you force co-operation, don’t be surprised when people resent each other and feel held back. The only solution is to move past egoism and put materialism back in its place. People must once again adhere to higher values and be willing to make personal sacrifices. Democracy can’t do this because it’s quarrelsome by nature. We must learn to have the humility to seek the truth, and to have discussion, no matter how painful it is.

Seriously? You’re trying to start shit again?

But running brothers and sisters off with a fire extinguisher. Can’t say I ever heard that one before. A simple "No thank, not interested" would work out better for everyone, and not make you look like such an crazy asshole.

Have fun getting reported for trying to start crap up again.
