It gets complicated if one side does have soldiers though.

So long as it's the other side, I can live with that.

I wonder if sales of Hagakure are soaring in wake of season 2 of True Detective, much like season one prompted purchases of The King in Yellow?  It was pretty prominently displayed in episode one in Ani Bezzerides' home, alongside a less prominent copy of A Book of Five Rings and some what look like some Fairbairn and Sykes knife-fighting manuals.

Well tough luck poseurs, my samurai killer manuals are well over a decade old. My knifefighting manuals too, though I only keep digitized copies of those nowadays.

Who the hell is Ani Bezzerides?

Character in True Detective.  Likes knives, has a New Age hippie cult leader for a father and, works for the County Sherrif's office and spends most of her time staring into the middle distance while looking mildly perturbed

The military is still really popular in Greece so that could easily happen, could even happen without a coup. We rang my relatives yesterday and they aren't too concerned. They are a bit out of it in Crete and have farms to be self sustaining, they cant afford to keep their cars running but they're not going to starve.

They are worried about Athens though, and when the rioting starts the police are going to be right along side people in a looting free-for-all.

Yeah.  Greece has a lot of classic precursors for a coup as well...even though the literature on that is lacking.  There was also that attempted coup-lite or whatever a couple of years back, where a bunch of Greek generals were suddenly and with no warning made to spend more time with their families.

Plus the military is, based on what I can see, about the best funded arm of the state.  Hell, while the Greek government were cutting spending everywhere else, part of their EU bailout clause required using the money to purchase German and French arms systems, and Greece spends 2.4% of its GDP on its defence annually - double that of most European states, above that of the UK and 0.4% more than what is required by NATO.

Speaking of which, I suspect NATO would support a coup and the EU or elements thereof may be playing along.  Greece's leaders are awfully cozy with Russia, and I know if I was a Greek leader in dire straits I might look to use relations with Russia to counterbalance the EU.  In return, if I was an NSC staffer reporting to the American President, I'd be backing a coup to prevent that scenario.

BRB buying ouzo.

Now I'm waiting for the banks to refuse service, leading to businesses shutting down and food shortages and riots.  Then the glorious Greek colonels will march in and restore order...or something.

So both the military and PUA/MRA movement...use advertising?  Shocking.

Edge of Tomorrow is as original as it's gonna get, I'm afraid.

I'm kinda resigned at this point to any film either having already been a book, a comic or another film.  Talk about a cultural dead-end...

23
In much happier news, I heard a rumour that Emily Blunt is being considered for the starring role in an Escape from New York remake.

I don't think many women (or men for that matter) could make a convincing Snake Plissen, but after her performance in Edge of Tomorrow, I definitely think she could.

Yeah, maybe.  Bigger picture, countries like Tunisia are utterly reliant on their tourism trade.  If that collapses...the government won't be far behind.

Attack the tourism to attack government revenue.  Build credibility with those who disagree with tourism, either because they don't benefit financially or because they disagree morally (westerners in bikinis, alcohol and unmarried sex, oh my).  Scare investors and other foreigners by extension.  Mentally isolate and besiege the country.

They need to take this deadly serious.  And I'm sure they are, but that needs to be reciprocated by the hotel industry.

25
So, I'm thinking, if I can wrangle this security contracting thing in a couple of weeks time (when I make my presentation) I might start looking at doing similar stuff abroad.

I mean, even though there was probably very little that could've been done to prevent last Friday's tragic events, I have a CV and some experience which could be useful to hotels in that part of the world.

I'm not sure exactly how I want to approach that yet, and I want to get this on my resume first, but it's something I'm keeping in mind.  Hotel security is usually notoriously bad, filled with the sort of no-lifers who couldn't make it in the local regime's military (which is saying something, in most cases) and can't handle more than a bar fight or domestic without relying on the local security services.

I'm thinking such things could be significantly improved.

26
It's really sad in a way too, because I could really see a valid space for an actual men's "rights" movement (I'd prefer to use the word "issues" than rights).  Things like challenging conceptions of masculinity and male gender roles, as well as policy issues like homelessness, mental illness, male rape, prison violence and parental issues could all be covered in a mature and sensible way...

But it's much easier to jerk off about the evil feminists and SJWs and bitches who wont fuck me even though I'm totally an alpha male, so I don't see this happening any time soon.

I'm not sure why he's bothering.  A pretty boy like him is gonna get plenty of attention in prison...he wont be wanting for "dates" any time soon.  Whether they're dates he wants to be on is of course another question entirely...

So...if God had been more equality minded, original sin and hell wouldn't exist?

I'm not convinced they entirely thought through the implications of that.

The other major pillar of RedPill philosophy is that women are "emotionally teenagers" and "gold-diggers" and so on.  If she is with a "beta male", it's for the financial stability, and she is cheating on him.

You really have to read their subreddit though, to see the full terribleness of it in action.

I don't know why people just can't accept the flag is merely a sign of their heritage, that they are proud of their ancestors who not only kept black people as property, but were also willing to make it illegal not to make black people property and wanted to establish a conquering slaver Empire that would extend down through Central America and into Brazil, where they woud rule above the foolish, brown masses.

I mean, where is the harm in that?  Only some kind of racist would be against celebrating one's cultural heritage.
