I can barely stand to read your ultra boring comment all thanks to your socks. I can’t stop yawning…help…

We definitely don’t have a two party system. Trump came in and invented a whole new party just like that. We have republicans, democrats and trumpers.

If you want to get pedantic then the US has MANY different legal parties. Functionally only three that matter.

You had me in the first paragraph but I call bullshit on the second. However you won me back with the third.

I feel like it’s not the GOP that supports Putin, it’s Trump that supports Putin and the GOP has no choice but to follow. If the Dems want something… even a thing that the GOP also wants, Trump will be against it and the GOP follows closely behind.

Humans could never support actual real socialism. We are corrupt dicks and would always figure out a way to exploit it for personal gain. Some form of hybrid system involving some degree of greed(capitalism) will probably always be required.

Capitalism has led directly to advances in medicine and cures and there is no question about that. For all its faults the greed for money has no doubt led to faster advances.

Real socialism just won’t work for people. We are too corrupt and would just find ways to take advantage of it for personal gain. Some form of greed needs to be worked into the system to promote advancement and satiate the need for greed.

When has socialism ever worked?

The United States as a whole has been shifting towards progressive policies since its creation… as has the whole world.

Pre-columbian Americans kept each other as slaves for centuries…at the very least. So the lie that native American women controlled their own bodies is a slap in the face of the countless who were kept as slaves. Egalitarian…hardly.

But the women never controlled their own bodies for thousands of years…likely since the first women. There are “fluctuations” where they have more rights for short stretches is time. You could cherry pick specific locations in a specific century of course. For example right now in the entire US, women have fewer rights than 10 years ago (fluctuation) but far more than 100 or more years ago.

This book denies thousands of years of native American slavery?

Yes a “fraction” of tribes had slavery. 25% of the tribal population in the pacific northwest alone were slaves. A horrific and a dominant part of their society. The way women were treated by good Christians was terrible but to compare that in to the sheer number that were held as slaves in the past is disingenuous. Children sold for food. Children and women stolen from tribe to tribe to bolster numbers(forced assimilation which qualifies as genocide today). Were you a natural born tribe member female that hasn’t been captured? In that case you had a better life though you did partially through the exploitation of slaves and genocide… for thousands of years. A couple of hundred years of harsh Christan rule was in no way a step backward.

Do you truly believe slavery was rare among pre-columbian native Americans?

Let’s say for argument sake you are right. For 30,000 years slavery was a not-so-common occurrence in the America’s. Then for 200 years it increased. Then decreased for 150 years to a level far far below any point in history (per-capita). What has been the trend?

So she went from taking advantage of all workers to not giving bonuses to enough workers even though she has been more generous than any other performer. Why is she even being talked about in this context when she should be the last to be mentioned on this subject? Pick literally any other performer and they have treated their workers “worse”.

I’m just posting sources to back up my claims while everyone else just says stuff because they want it to be true. No need for sources when you can just say stuff… it’s like Republicans.
