Lol yeah, if you actually read the history, it's mostly genocides and ethnic cleansing until at least the end of the Alessian Empire. Which is depressing bc the Alessian Empire began as a progressive slave revolt that ended the repressive "mago-mercantilist" system in Cyrodil

Out of curiosity, do you consider the Empire or the Stormcloaks genocidal? I think there's a good argument to be made for both. I actually researched this a lot bc I might make a dumb YouTube video about it

But the thing is... both the Empire AND the Stormcloaks have committed ethnic cleansing against the Reachmen. Actually, Ulfric himself carried it out at the behest of the Empire. Reachmen are not culturally Nordic, nor did they ever agree to be part of the Empire.

There is an interesting argument to be made here either way. Sad that Elder Scrolls V doesn't give you the option of supporting the nationalist, anti-imperialist reachmen who fight for their own sovereignty in the Reach near Markarth

Easy to be #1 when you habitually destroy oil-producing countries

It's perfectly defensible to say "I think Biden and his family engaged in some corrupt behavior but I'm going to vote for him anyways because I want X or Y policy to happen" But the media/Biden's tactic has been to deny the corruption outright, which is just a complete lie

"That's CIA propaganda" is a valid criticism if all one's sources are explicitly linked to the State Department and intelligence apparatus. It doesn't mean the source is lying *necessarily* but it does mean that any rational person should be highly skeptical of its claims

Wow, the "pro-democracy" movement is trying to use Puerto Rico as an potential alternative model to working with mainland China. They are convinced it is better to be a US colony. Similar argument coming from some corners of the US left, how interesting

A left that does not at it's core recognize the primary struggle in society as being between workers and capitalists is little more than liberal accelerationism & will only fracture and ultimately destroy class politics. wrote a more nuanced take

People think Trump is a fascist, which is obviously untrue. Tom Cotton is a fascist, though.

Last night I was called a f**got and told that I look like I am on meth (I’m actually sober) by Biden supporters. Remember when they called Bernie supporters “toxic”? It was projection.

You know how to tell what protests you support and not? Don’t worry about it. Just oppose US involvement. You’ll find yourself on the correct side.

The Green Book is full of references to Marxism and dialectics. You can see references to it - implicit and explicit - everywhere. I really would recommend reading The Green Book, it makes a Hell of an argument

I hope journalists realize: if Biden wins, and you report anything incriminating about his administration - even if you ask critical questions - you're going to get accused of spreading Russian disinformation and helping the Kremlin. That's the toxic template being implemented.

When you're trying to live down that time you got exposed as a journalist who collaborates with the CIA, but then Bush/Cheney's CIA & NSA chief comes and endorses your attack on a journalist as a Kremlin asset. This is the union between US journalism and the CIA, here: 👇

If you see Nazis in my comments section, be aware many of them aren’t actual Nazis. They are Breadtubers & Anti-Russia Trolls trying to mischaracterize my work. This one pretty much admitted it.
