Title: Thork crows for a bit
Post by: Toddler Thork on December 16, 2019, 01:32:56 AM
The UK had a general election. You wouldn't know it because the lefty champagne Socialists on this site probably don't want to talk about.

I'll summarise for those that didn't understand the main talking points.

The British were offered some cold blooded Capitalists who would list their first born on the FTSE100 if they thought they might make a profit OOOOORRRRRR socialism.

So the British had a quick look at Venezuala to see what all this socialism mumbo jumbo is about, decided that they liked eating and that socialism probably wasn't for them. The NHS selling Tory party won by a landslide.

This has had the effect of 'draining the swamp' in the UK. Some of the most hideous politicians have now all lost their seats. And Socialism is for now at least ... dead in the UK.

Now of course the USA has the same opportunity coming up if they have Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren on the 2020 ticket, and I expect the USA to do the same thing and boot the wicked socialists out.

Of course, Twitter has had a meltdown. British media has had a melt down. Students have had a melt down. Celebs have been having melt downs. I'm up to my armpits in salt and have been enjoying it very much. Its been like a nice little early Christmas present. Oh, and Brexit is now going to be a thing.


In this thread I'd like to collect leftist tears. Please can Pete Svarrior and others report for duty. I want to hear how it was Brexit's fault, how it was the fault of antisemitism, how the Russians ate their homework, how the electorate just didn't understand the Labour Manifesto because it was too clever for them, and how under no circumstances whatsoever was it the manifesto to blame. The Manefesto (peace be on it) was perfect, and it must not change for the next election. Even if Corbyn goes, the brain scrubbing must continue.

Hilarious. But not as hilarious as this: An individual’s likelihood of being a Democrat decreases with every additional dollar he or she earns.

Yes, it is hilarious that that idea would be propagated around the internet, given that almost all real-world evidence contradicts the idea. If you're referring to the study by Satoshi Kanazawa, well, he's an overt racist (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/may/18/satoshi-kanazawa-black-women-psychology-today).

You sound like a dumb liberal now. What does someone being racist have to do with their ability to conduct a study on political leanings and intelligence?

Regardless, Satoshi’s paper wasn’t even specifically about the correlation, as that had been floating around prior but rather about why.

But I'm a complete neoliberal shill, the kind that "will get the bullet too". I'd happily vote Tory before they got trolled by Brexit, but that's not a left-right issue. (If anything, the left is more opposed to the EU than the current Brexit crowd, they're just kind of not allowed to talk about it loudly because Labour).

Labour's manifesto was a complete shambles, and since they purged the slightly more centrist section of their party, they didn't have anyone with the brains to justify their proposals to non-sycophants. They shouted a lot about things like "free FTTH for all!1!!!", and that kind of crap just doesn't sell to working-class people.

They don't need 1Gbps Internet, they just need reasonably reliable Internet, and they'll happily pay for it if they need it and the price is not exorbant.

And rich people who might want 1Gbps Internet will... oh, they'll pay for it too.

This pattern repeats for most of their loudest policies. It's really not surprising that they got obliterated, as they rightly should have. Does that mean I'm happy about BoJo's Tories in power? No. And I don't think you are either, given our previous conversation on Brexit. Or is the satisfaction of gloating about Labour more important to you than the dissatisfaction of Brexit being effectively castrated?

Thork doesn't know what socialism is.
In the words of Lenin ... the goal of socialism is communism.

Its about a bourgeois pointing at other people's wealth and confiscating it. Everywhere real socialism goes, the people starve and the politicians are the richest people in the country.

Venezuela is interesting. The richest person in the country is Hugo Chavez' daughter and she is worth $2bn.
It is interesting for 2 reasons.
1) How does a public servant amass $2bn?
2) How is the richest person in the country only worth a paltry $2bn in a nation that has more oil than Saudi Arabia?

That's socialism.

You think socialism is funny?
(https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/37daf53158f2674e7877930c7f986e2f?width=650)

You think socialism is compassionate?
(https://steemitimages.com/DQmbnsRDaCEFHhttmDNyw9aQdPJHx4qqvG5qnaw4fiLp7ME/image.png)

You think 'nice people' vote left?

Once the socialist gets elected, that's the last election you ever have. They never step down. They are better than you. They deserve your wealth. They will take it. You vote socialism in, but you have to shoot your way out. Do not be lured by the promise of free things for all. The socialist will bury you.

This pattern repeats for most of their loudest policies. It's really not surprising that they got obliterated, as they rightly should have. Does that mean I'm happy about BoJo's Tories in power? No. And I don't think you are either, given our previous conversation on Brexit.

Honestly, I felt like we've been flirting with enslavement for too long. Destroying the left is far more important than Brexit.

I was happy to support Labour in the election (and note with some small amount of pleasure that my constituency remains red) because I believe that a vote on a "deal", something at least close to concrete, is far more valuable than a vote on a vague declaration of intent. And no, a general election was not the proper forum to determine whether or not the patchily reheated withdrawal agreement was a good way forward for the union. In all truth, Labour should have maybe not helped but at least allowed the Tories to get on with their shitshow leave policy, bided their time and then (2021 perhaps) brought forward the confidence motion to trigger an election. But I suspect we are now locked in to at least a decade of Tory rule, and without a strong opposition at that.

I kind of felt bad for Corbyn personally because he was trying to acquiesce on the point of being more "electable" by agreeing to put at least a couple of fingers into the teflonising machine, yet his backbencher instincts compelled him to stick up for his beliefs, kind of the opposite of Tim Farron's gay marriage gaffe. So you ended up with someone who was honest about his most controversial views, yet was fidgeting in his seat over a question about the Queen's speech, which most people in this country don't watch or care about in any sense. He would die on hills that would play up his association, rightly or wrongly, with antisemitism, yet meaningless trifles presented some kind of image dilemma for him, and not even the incumbent PM hiding in a fridge while his aide told a journalist to fuck off on national television was apparently enough to take the pressure off in any real way. "Boris is Boris" as Theresa May once said, shortly before sacking him; show him doing something patently retarded and people will laugh and clap for more.

Speaking of Boris Johnson, the worst thing Labour could have done was to fall into the same trap the Democrats did with Donald Trump. By attacking his character and things he had said in the past, they played into a game of personality over policy, so all Bozo had to do was bumble around affably repeating the same basic lines over and over, and not even those self same lines coming from the bloated lips and B'stardish grimace of Gove and Raab respectively were enough to make them seem less than wonderful. Ironically Labour and its activist army probably drove more support to the Tories by attacking their leader so fervently.

So I think Labour played its hand quite poorly, appealing largely to "champagne socialists" and the sort of people who view Ash Sarkar as an insightful political commentator, but the deck was stacked against them with their leader being a pro-Palestine critic of Israel who wanted to go after the wealth of the British elite. Even Ed Miliband, himself a Jew, felt the weight of the establishment coming down on him when he whipped in favour of recognising Palestine as an independent state in 2014. Yet the party could have gotten rid of Corbyn at any time had they actually presented a credible alternative. With the best will in the world, Cringela Eagle and Owen "99 Flake" Smith were about as viable as chocolate fireguards. Labour would have been in an infinitely better position if (for example) Hilary Benn, who had already been sacked from Corbyn's cabinet and probably had popular narrative on his side, had been convinced to step up instead.

Well, shit happens. It's at least going to be amusing to see brexiteers of all stripes gradually realise how little what they're getting matches what they voted for. You won, get over it, and so on and so on.

Signed, a working class "small el" lefty who doesn't particularly care for the EU and for whom the real tragedy is that FPTP strikes again.

Rather than just trumpet this talking point, it would be good if you backed it up with facts.

How about this fact.

Most people are incapable of exercising self control, make stupid choices, and suffer rational consequences for being stupid.

Why would you choose to make someone else pay for that stupidity?

I'm not in love with the Tories either. And of labour I prefer the politics of Jess Phillips and Caroline Flint ... but then they are community minded Labour MPs, not leftists.

The election was split between the anywheres and the somewheres.

If you are a somewhere, your parents live in THIS town, your kids go to school HERE, you use THESE roads to get to work, you voted Conservative. If you are someone who moved to a place, a city, a university, you could live and work anywhere, you voted Labour. Those that can happily turn a place into a toilet and just leave and go some place else like a plague of locusts ... those are the metropolitan elites. A Cornish fisherman votes Tory, an international corporate lawyer votes Labour. Somewhere vs anywhere. Reality vs Ideology. Good vs Evil.

On the day of the election, perennial Labour idiot Dianne Abbott was wearing two left shoes.

If Boris had been wearing two left shoes everyone would have fallen around laughing.
Good old Boris! *chuckle* Isn't he a laugh?! *guffaw*.
It's all cult of personality these days and Boris just has that bumbling affable likeability.
It doesn't seem to matter than most of what he spouts is a lie. He's Trumpesque in that regard - he's bulletproof when it comes to scandals or telling lies.
He's a lot smarter and more knowing about it than Trump but it's a depressingly effective tactic.

Don’t sweat it too much. It was just me pushing back against nitwits who think “hurr durr you’re a [leftist/rightist] so you’re automatically the WORST!”

There are some stupid papers floating around that show people subscribing to left wing ideology have higher IQs, you can find the same for right wing. You can show that the poorest states vote GOP and the richest vote Dem. It just depends on what kind of sick game you want to play.

Like Thork with his “somewhere v anywhere” diatribe. I’m left wing because I think we should try and lift each other up. I also think we should strictly encourage people to learn to lift themselves up. These things aren’t in conflict. Some right wing people want to scour the Earth for a profit. So do some left wing people. Generalizations are the end of conversation and the beginning of enmity.

I hope the people of the UK and the USA and many other nations can get it together to realize their neighbors aren’t the enemy, no matter who they vote for. The people who would commoditise humans are the enemy.

In your very first post in this thread you said conservatives were retarded. You then went on to try to mount an argument that liberals are more intelligent overall, and when asked for sources you realized that you couldn’t find any sources that clearly backed up your argument. So, you coyly retreated to a “guys I’m actually middle of the road, I just want to help people lol” position. I’m not sure why you’re so adamant in trying to disprove your original claim that liberals are more intelligent, but you’re doing a very good job.

As for me, I’ve typically made bipartisan votes in local and state elections because I’ve always thought the “vote with your party” idea is incredibly stupid. I’ve voted for left and right propositions because I don’t think one party can be right 100% of the time, or even close. But a lot changed as soon as people saw Donald Trump had an actual chance at becoming president. The left became a wild band of zealots, and ideas like reparations or suppressing freedom of expression so people wouldn’t be offended became a lot more than just liberal boogieman memes propagated by the right.

The left wants tax money to fight climate change, they want to repeal the 2nd Amendment yet harp on about rights, they want to do away with the electoral college because iT wAs HeR TuRn, they want more open borders AND a welfare state, they want to stay in Syria and kill more kids only because Trump wanted to leave. The list goes on and on. Conservatives might be mouth breathing retards, but the collective IQ of the left seems to have dropped by 30 points over the last several years alone.

I do the same, my dude. I am not chained down to voting for an ideology and if you look through my history here you can find me arguing for and against ideas I don’t like, whether left or right.

Lots of people lost their shit when Trump is elected. He is incompetent. Even more lost their shit because they were triggered. People lost their shit when Obama was elected too. American’s are good at losing their shit.

I bet if we had started our conversation here differently we would find common ground but when someone’s response to a pretty clear joke is “oh yeah? Well Dems are POOR!!!” I can’t take them seriously.

It wasn’t socialism that killed them, it was tyranny. Tyranny makes people devalue lives. Maybe socialism when it’s pervasive does that, I don’t think there is good evidence because dictators of every sort end up murdering their people. Bernie isn’t wicked either, what a silly thing to say. Obviously socialism isn’t perfect but elements of it obviously have a positive effect. It’s the same with free market capitalism. It’s not perfect, and if it were just left to run amok you would end up with more of the terrible shit corporate profiteering has resulted in.

Quote from: Jesús Huerta de Soto
Socialism is any system that restricts or infringes upon the free exercise of human action or entrepreneurial role, and that is justified in the popular, political, and scientific discourse as a system capable of improving society and accomplishing a set goals and objectives that are considered to be good.

Quote from: Ludwig von Mises
Socialism is not what it claims to be. It is not the pioneer of a better and more beautiful world, but rather the destroyer of what thousands of years of civilization have painfully created. It builds nothing and  demolishes everything. If it were to triumph, it should be named destructionism, because it is, in essence, destruction.

Capitalism is what allows the middle class to thrive and the only economic system which has resulted in the gulf between the uber wealthy and the poor to narrow significantly. Systems like socialism thrive on taxing that same middle class out of their wealth and making sure generational wealth disappears by taxing inheritance. The result is that the rich people stay rich, the middle class disappears and the amount of working class enlarges. Then the poor stay poor because the government taxes them out of their income then gives it back to them, telling them they should be grateful for the exchange.

Socialism is the equivalent of taking grades from people who made B's and giving them to people who made D's, then claiming you've made the entire class smarter.

I would happily agree that capitalism has contributed to the fabulous wealth of western nations.  I would caution against giving 100% of the credit to capitalism, but that's a general thing, I doubt you are stupid enough to think that.  Socialism has also contributed something to the prosperity of the West.  I don't believe there is a one-size-fits-all system that will lead to utopia.  I also don't think capitalism and socialism need to be at odds with one another.  Norway seems to have taken a decent crack at blending them.

Norway also has an enormous amount of North Sea oil.

They put the wealth this generates, into a fund.

Sure thing. At the end of the day, the key tenet of socialism is that the workers own the means of production (this can be achieved in a number of ways, not all "good"). There is nothing about wealth redistribution that is uniquely tied to socialism or even communism. A quick and dirty explanation can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redistribution_of_income_and_wealth#Role_in_economic_systems

Functionally, yes, but not by the "numbers," so yes I am drawing a distinction. You aren't redistributing wealth since it doesn't (see: shouldn't) be controlled by one person (or a group of wealthy people). Obviously a socialist overthrow of capitalism would naturally result in a massive redistribution of wealth initially.  It becomes a much more in-depth discussion as we will move into private property vs. personal property which I don't think is appropriate for Thonk's teen angst thread. In modern society, redistribution of wealth is significantly larger in capitalist economies which is really the main point. You can't have a functional discussion about socialism (whether for or against) if you aren't aware of the basics which is all I was really trying to point out. I have brought up socialism before, but no one really wants to have an honest discussion about it because no one really gives a shit, which is fine.

You are free to keep thinking anyone is disagreeing with you. Although, you said it is about distributing wealth, not redistributing. Those are different words with different definitions. The only thing I can do is take what you literally said and assume it was the only possible thing you could have meant. You can clarify what you actually meant, but I will ignore that and continue to work on my initial flawed assumption and ignore any further context. That method seems to be working for you so far.

And so we are a week later and Jeremy Corbyn is hating life. Each day he goes to Parliament with a face like a smacked arse and is remorselessly taunted. A living meme.

Corbyn expelled and forced out so many people, reshaping the Labour party, filling it with people just like him. The feral left. Those that when things turn bad will eat their own. And my, how they have been. I am reminded of the story of Prometheus, the Titan who was punished by Zeus for stealing fire and giving it to mankind. He was tied to a rock and each day an eagle would come and peck away his liver, and each night it would grow back and be pecked out all over again. And so each day Corbyn's self-esteem is pecked away by the Corbynistas and it recovers only to be pecked at again the next day. A man who set out to create Utopia but instead has shaped the Labour party into his own private hell.

And right now, that is all the Labour party is. Jeremy Corbyn's private hell. It serves no other function than to torment him.
