EtcetEraThread World's richest 1% cause double CO2 emissions of poorest 50%, says Oxfam
Reason User Threadbanned Pending Further Review
I’d wager in Resetera it does mean defending tankies since you’re not responding to an audience of racists and conservatives here. The US democracy and government is fucked but it’s not anywhere as fucked as China. At least we have a chance to change it in a few weeks. Also don’t forget that it’s the wealthy Chinese people’s demand for exotic meat that caused the Covid-19 outbreak and non transparency and secrecy of the Chinese government that resulted in it spreading everywhere. So while a vast majority of people in China are victims just like the rest of us, the Chinese ruling class is guilty and should be hated.

EtcetEraThread World's richest 1% cause double CO2 emissions of poorest 50%, says Oxfam
Reason User banned (duration to be determined by admin review): Implying eugenics, peddling racist misinformation
Curbing birth rates would do wonders for Africa as it has done for Eurasia and the Americas. It's easier to build infrastructure, educate people, and grow the economy in a sustainable way when you don't have rapid growth. Societies with a large portion of the population under 14 (every country before the industrial revolution) have always been unstable ones prone to poverty, conflict, misogyny, and authoritarian governments. So while curbing African birth rates would do little to help climate change it would do everything to help Africa.

In reality, people just want purpose and getting mad at someone they don't like gives that to them.

No, the US does not. And you're the one defending autocracy using whataboutisms. If you truly believed in democracy, then preventing autocratic regimes access to information is the only logical conclusion. The US is clearly problematic too, but just one country is problematic, allowing another problematic country access to information doesn't somehow make the world a better place.

EtcetEraThread Breaking: South Dakota attorney general reported hitting a deer in his car, left the scene, cops found body of a man afterwards
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Hostility
This is a really, really stupid thing to say. I mean genuinely stupid. As in totally really fucking idiotic. If I had killed someone in a hit and run and I hired a brief to try and get off, I'd seriously consider just ending things if this was the best they could do in my defence. The dumb thing your asserting is that he thought he hit a deer. He didn't, because when you hit a deer (or in my case, when a deer ran into me) you see a deer in front of you. It is deer shaped, not person shaped. This bears repeating: if he thought he hit a deer while driving a sedan, he would have stopped. That's because large deer shaped objects cave in the front of sedans such as what the AG was driving. Generally, when the front of your car gets smashed up, it's not safe to continue driving. In fact, if you're driving something smaller than a truck it's not unusual to write off cars when you hit a deer. Especially at speed. So, he didn't see a deer shaped object, and his car wasn't written off. Therefore, he had no reason to think that he had hit a deer. However, he knew he hit something. If he had stopped, maybe the guy he hit would have lived? There's always that chance. So, he bears absolute responsibility for the victims death. And yes, being a logic bro is absolutely a thing. It's what you've been doing this entire thread. It's when a poster makes a series of increasingly stupid or outrageous but superficially logical points to try and maintain that their original position was correct. It's really toxic and even more stupid. Plz stahp.

EtcetEraThread [Serious] what’s the appeal of conservativism?
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissive commentary around civil rights across multiple posts, inflammatory support
As some people have pointed out already, OP didn't specify what he meant by "conservatism," and a lot of posters are just saying that the GOP is racist (which it obviously is). But there are a lot of different meanings to conservatism in different eras and different contexts. In the US right now, it basically means a new "Know Nothing" party: anti-evolution, anti-vaccine, LGBT+-phobic, racist, pro-war. But it can mean a lot of different things. I'm pretty conservative on the two things I know very well, education and fitness/exercise. And I'm conservative in those two areas because I've seen what works, and what doesn't, and by and large it's the old stuff that works and the new stuff that doesn't. I think that schools should focus on teaching fundamental skills and information in literature, history, math, science, and foreign language, so that makes me 'conservative' among teachers. The liberal view in education (liberal meaning, the new way) is that schools should focus on students' consuming things and feeling good. (And no, I'm not being hyperbolic at all. I've had many arguments with teachers and administrators over the years about whether students should learn things at school, and most of the administrators end up saying 'no.') I'm also a conservative on civil rights (relative to the large majority of ERA) because I support free speech and I believe that civil liberties (basically, how you live your life in private) should be grounded in the individual and not identity groups. But Americans who vote Republican right now would think that I'm a crazy leftist on those issues, when (ironically) I'm just taking the GOP's old stated positions and taking them seriously. It all depends on context.

EtcetEraThread To Anti-Socialists/Communists/Anarchists: It's either that, or extinction
Reason User banned (1 month): Hostility and trolling over multiple posts, ableist insults
I’m just saying you’re silly for at least implying that historically the reason socialism failed in these countries was US promoted democratic movements and not violent military coups, like in Guatemala, Venezuela and Iran. Many socialists argue *precisely that* if we want to change things in other countries we should do so through peaceful democratic movements, but as an objective historical fact this has not been the method the US has employed. But if you’re caught up in smoothbrained world of socialism=less freedom and democracy and capitalism=yay then ig this isn’t obvious? Your Cuba point has nothing to do with socialism? Cracking down on pride parades is horrible and authoritarian, not socialist. But again it’s pretty common for smoothbrains to conflate socialism with big brother so it’s not that surprising ig

That is absolutely what they think. Liberals will side with fascists, and white people will survive. Anyone who isn't a white cishet person will be executed.
