"Abortion is killing babies"

And if you are pro-choice and also believe that you are willfully ending a life, then what?

Yes, Myanmar would be able to offload anything nk could produce.

If there's a connection it would be the Pakistani submarines. Or so I heard a theory once.

I would have said that a US strike against nk would be out of the question, but I think the priority has shifted or will to prevent nk from setting a precedent by asserting their sovereignty in this fashion.

As far as their rocket technology goes, I'd love for it to come out that each failure was concealment of the debugging of various systems in isolation, and that they are much further along than we'd believe.

Why did Milo's book get pulled? Was it because people beat him in a theater of ideas? Was it because crowds stopped showing up for him? Was it because intersectional politics actually beats regressive shitlord politics? Not in the slightest. We just smeared him.

And it worked.

Should we feel bad about that?

No.

Well, you can't count on everyone from that side to defend pedophilia as their relevance is flagging.

"I hate the falseness of the narrative around inclusivity, not inclusivity itself" and keeps pulling them away from the direction of full nazi could be the kind of stepping stone we need.

This would be the sad part. These people's characterization of Trump's strategy as Chessmaster betrays a misunderstanding of Deleuze's Nomad, in that Trump can be said to use the strategy of Go: territorializing and deterritorializing, also referenced in the FB post. The sad part is that Trump's deterritorializing of the striated space, namely egalitarianism and equal rights for minorities of all kinds destroys the underlying structures and bases of support for said people to advance their causes. People know this and see it reasonably as pandering to the neoreactionary, when in it appears instead to be the unfortunate known yet "broken eggs for the omelet" collateral costs of Trump's seizing upon the natural power of the US media dialectical polarization mechanism.

But will the conditions that brought about that victory have longer term consequences, which will make it a larger strategic failure?  In this case it seems unlikely, but there are plenty of cases where shutting down someone can lead to a perception of persecution and suppression which perversely supports their cause.

And if people rest on their laurels of having defeated tEh vIlLaInOuS mIlO instead of realising that he was merely a symptom of a much broader range of social and political processes, which are proceeding in his absence at the same pace....well, that's also clearly suboptimal.

Tactics and strategy matter, not only for outcome but also for managing the perception of the outcome, its legitimacy and sustaining that outcome going forwards.  As far as I'm concerned, the left is pants on head retarded when it comes to strategy and tactics.  So is the far-right and liberal centre, but their economic resources and, in the case of the liberal-right, institutional dominance mean they can afford to fail far more often while searching for successful strategies and tactics.

This is great in the context of Deleuze that was mentioned in the FB post. In Nomadology: The War Machine, Deleuze and Guattari discuss the difference in strategy between the state and the war machine. Chess and Go respectively. In this sense, the alt-right and dark enlightenment people are claiming to be the Nomad but frequently reference Trump, their vehicle, as a Chessmaster.

Wokeness is a millennialization of having escaped Plato's Cave. Claiming as such is probably the best evidence that you bought and paid for a personal matryoshka-style matrix.

Okay. If this moves from parody to all-too-plausible, I'll be around.

May I ask what you meant by my "ability to write this means certain things?"

I'm not currently able to continue the writing and it's never an easy process when I can. I can verbally state the stories, but for some reason actually writing them can be a slow and arduous process.

I'm a pretty slow writer as well. I was referring to the story itself, however.  Let's just say, if you experience a psychotic break, not all hope is lost for your mind.

You sir. For you to be able to write this means certain things. You have written a 30k year old story my friend.

If you want to be able to cope with the language you are going to need a dictionary (physical book), a reference guide to rhetorical techniques (underhanded or otherwise), a list of the most common logical fallacies, to learn to enjoy making collages, and a shit ton of endurance.
