Replies: 61
Views: 696

So I'm going to start this by saying, yes, I'm an American, and no, this isn't all Trumps fault. The reason American hegemony and global influence is ending is because it is the natural order of things. No nation stays in its Golden Age for long, and America is seeing the effects of that. Yes, many...

Ask me again, when BLM activists perform a lynching, claim to have done it in the name of BLM, and not have it be disavowed by other groups within the movement. Then maybe we can talk about them getting that label. Or when their an actual organized group planning and carrying out attacks instead of...

No, American hegemony isn't over. It's being challenged. There's a huge difference. The United States' post-World War II global hegemony was built on the fact that it represented one of two countries that was able to economically recover from the Second World War. The rest of the world, and even our...

No, but the Klan is. /Thread. This is not Forum 7. I mean, this is the literal answer to their question. Is Black Lives Matter a terrorist group? No, they're a disorganized and non-centralized group of largely peaceful protesters (approximately 15 to 26 million of your fellow citizens to be exact),...

It doesn't. I hate to say it this way (and trust me, people might take this the completely the wrong way), but there's been a significant amount of investment since 9/11 into counter-terrorism and counter-terrorism surveillance by the NYPD. These functions are definitely more than covered by Federa...

Does China pose a significant espionage threat to the United States? Yes, but Mainland Chinese students are most certainly not the only people targeted in the United States by Chinese intelligence authorities and the US has a robust enough security infrastructure to deal with it. The same security ...

It's been verified for quite some time. The U.S. intelligence community is Russophobia Central obviously. Indeed.

If anything has convinced me that the time to jump ship on the US and moved to a developed country, it's Covid. Absolutely embarrassing honestly. The US really seems to have little saving grace and butchers everything it does. And the citizens don't care. Everything is about OWNING THE LIBS. . It's...

Absolutely none, actually. I have a microwave that I share with about 130 other people and a rice cooker I keep hidden due to dorm policies, but that's about it. The total monopoly on food that the institution has is easily my least favorite part of the school. That's a pity. You might look for &qu...

So my son has it as does his mother and grandmother. Luckily it appears mild. As someone who has had it (never diagnosed, but I've met all the symptoms and I'll be getting an antibody test later to confirm), lots of fluids definitely helped me to minimize the worst of it. Highly recommend a pedialy...

Three word responses aren't exactly the best way to start a discussion.

Here's the thing though, is we've entered a society where there is no such thing as a private statement made anymore. The statements that people make on Facebook can be viewed 24/7 and their association with their employers can be viewed 24/7, including while they're at work. And if the employer is...
