    The right loves Putin, too. The "party of liberty" has a hard-on for dictators because they show "resolve" and "strength," just like the OT God used to before He went soft.

    It's possible to say the game is rigged without believing that rainbow unicorns have rigged it.

    Kepler without Flaggy: elites are powerful economic actors who channel politics
    Flaggy without Kepler: elites are powerful political actors who channel economics
    Kepler with Flaggy: elites act in their own interests

    I'd say our area of intersection is pretty uncontroversial.

    It makes no sense to say on one hand that the elites run the world and orchestrate economic and political activity to further their stranglehold on power AND that they want to unleash the one "great equalizer" force that will destroy the institutions and goods they have hoarded for themselves.

    You are right that there is a ruling class. You are right that they dominate economic and political institutions. But a nuclear confrontation is THE LAST thing they would want. As long as they fight their wars conventionally it's only our kids and our taxes that are affected. Nukes actually damage them.

    You are falling for the very stuff you decry elsewhere.

    Seriously read aloud some of the stuff you two were saying, you sound like the weirdos who wrote into Jimmy Kimmel denouncing him for telling people to get vaccinated only with less spelling errors

    There is no NWO, there is no vast conspiracy of industrialists trying to take over the world and the doctors arent keeping us sick just so they can make profit and keep us in line so the 1% can centralize more power and put chips in our brains. Rich/powerful people are greedy and stupid people are stupid, been that way since the dawn of time. It doesnt take much to see the truth but you can twist yourself into a pretzel trying to convince yourself otherwise.

    (this is just a friendly reminder never to actually read what Flaggy posts because it will destroy your soul)

    Please don't equate the two.

    Churchill was in the middle of a war rallying his population against an enemy that was bombing them every day. Bibi is electioneering and using us as a stalking horse and the GOP in Congress as a studio audience APPLAUSE sign.

    It's also the easiest thing in the world for him to criticize any attempt to resolve a difficult problem when he isn't offering a concrete alternative. This is just an attempt to steer US policy and sabotage negotiations. The last thing Likud wants is a compromise, as that would undercut their Manichean view of the universe and destroy them domestically.

    Bibi did a Dirty Harry drag act, so the gorillas will wank themselves silly over him. It's useless to tell people who get misty-eyed over the Gipper that posturing is the opposite of real leadership. They're allergic to complexity and will crawl over glass for somebody who tells them the world is white hats and black hats.

    Good speech, bad policy.

    The herpa-derps are really eating it up.
