I don't know who tells you to hate China so much, but please know that Chinese people are not mass murderers.

He never said that.

You will not be sent to a camp for speaking your mind.

Say that to Ai Weiwei. Or Bao Zunxin. Or Zeng Jinyan. Or the estimated 2,700 killed at Tiananmen.

The Uyghurs in Xinjiang are still around. If there was genocide, they would all be rounded up and thrown away.

They're being rounded up and thrown away as we speak.

If China didn't care about human rights as the western countries claim, they would've disappeared all Uyghurs already like western dictatorships did to their minorities.

They're disappearing the Uyghurs as we speak.

Because China doesn't want to extinguish the minorities.

Yes they do.

They want to get rid of terrorists who do terror attacks. You wouldn't want someone in your country encouraging terrorist acts? So same for China. Just happens that the terror attacks come from people of certain ethnicity.

This is a bullshit argument that's been proven wrong.

Uyghurs aren't all terrorists.

The Chinese government isn't going after the Uyghurs because they might be terrorists; they're pursuing the age-old policy of Sinicization.

China was transparent about the virus.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

China is not the evil.

The "People's Republic of China" (which is not a legitimate entity) is a fascist occupier of the Republic of China that is actively committing genocide and ethnocide against Manchu, Mongol, Tibetan, and Uyghur minorities.

When there are people pushing a narrative that China is the enemy, remember to ask why they would say so.

Because the PRC is a fascist occupier of the Republic of China that is actively committing genocide and ethnocide against Manchu, Mongol, Tibetan, and Uyghur minorities.

If China was really an evil place, it would have collapsed already.

Plenty of evil regimes haven't collapsed; Israel, North Korea, the occupiers in mainland China, and Uzbekistan, to name a few.

But China exists.

As the Republic of China whose capital is in Nanjing.

absolutely superb
Socialist Macronesia wrote:I think the main issue is that for a lot of NSG players, especially those with particularly cemented political views, the idea of seeing people with opposing views than them triggers a sort of cognitive dissonance and causes them to outright ignore damning evidence or arguments against them and causes them to "believe what they want to believe." In my opinion, the only thing really keeping NSG together is that the sheer hatred between the opposing sides creates a sense of "I need to prove the other person wrong!" However, this inevitably becomes "I need to prove the other person wrong for myself!" Once this occurs, they will argue anything, be it correct or incorrect, as long as it supports their point. They will try to refute their opponent's points, and even if they get countered, they'll just toss the counter evidence, valid or invalid, to the side. They're only trying to convince themselves that they're right, not anyone else or even the person they're arguing with. They just want to be "proven right" so they can feel smart and accomplished even if that was hardly the case.

However, both sides are like this. Both sides are desperate to get any kind of evidence against the other side, even if it's wrong, misleading, or insubstantial. If they use data to back themselves up, they draw conclusions that may or may not be supported by data. They fail to provide accurate solutions to issues in their plan, or if they do make solutions, those solutions are equally full of holes, and the answers to those are full of holes, and so on. Eventually, when the data and evidence runs dry, they often resort to name-calling and wholly un-political argument and this is the part that requires moderator intervention. Report threads begin to fly and a relationship of hatred builds between sides, whose cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias prevents them from acknowledging that the other side is human and might make some good points at times. That hatred stays around until the next encounter. While the calmer people on each side of the political aisle merely want to disprove the other side to prevent contradictory political opinions from getting in their brain and, god forbid, making some sense, but the sheer bloodlust of some of the NSG players to get people on the other side either banned or warned kicks in and the arguing starts again. More report threads fly, the situation kind of dies down, but sooner or later, the resentment and anger between political sides bubbles over again. Nowadays, the resentment between both sides is so hard that a good 90-95% of report threads are from General. Some are respectful, honest reports against bad, rule breaking players, but quite a few are completely misconstrued quotes or statements that "people who only want to see the other guy get bonked by the mods" use to satisfy their ravenous desire for revenge and further the potential for players with clashing ideological beliefs to be removed from the site and therefore unable to sway their ideas in any meaningful way, which is just what they like: no competition.

And then when they try to come over to the other parts of the forums, they carry with them a schizophrenic-like paranoia that everyone around them wants to debunk their theories, making them defensive and hostile to people who are just using this site to have fun without worrying about political opinions and events occurring in the real world. Some can be quite nice and chill outside of NSG, but I would be lying if I said that almost everyone got along when they stepped into a different forum. There are people who will constantly chuck political opinions, media, essays, ideologies, and doctrine in your face whether you ask for it or not. They're not doing this because they want us to just know about what they believe, they want us to believe what they believe so that we join them in their futile "holy war" of attrition against the people they disagree with politically. They want us to think what they think without questioning it ourselves. They want us to support them because if they think that "mostly everyone around me believes what I do!" then they will feel better about themselves. They feel like they have to worry less about refuting the opponents' points because they've already refuted them all in their head... right? There is no more opponent. There's no more second opinion. The dissonance is lost and shattered, and the confirmation bias hardens and solidifies. Evidently the other guy didn't know what the hell he was talking about.

It's funny: if we only have one side of politics, it's just an echo chamber, but if we have two sides, it turns into a fucking psychological warzone. Now, do the things here apply to all NSG players? No, of course not. But that's the thing you have to worry about: NSG players see stuff like this and they say that this isn't true and doesn't apply to them even if it does. This is in part because of that cognitive dissonance: they think they're champions of the superior political ideology, but then when presented with the idea that a good percent of users think of them as ill-behaved players who constantly scream politics into everyone's ears against their will and require constant moderator intervention to fix their messes, they now have two conflicting opinions of themselves. Whichever one you think is more true is up to you, but if the repeated political conflict in General has shown me anything, I can safely say that NSG--the good, the bad, and the ugly of it--is wholly an NS Cliche.

Punished UMN wrote:Both of these ideas are drastic oversimplifications that need to be cleared up, they are criticisms that basically rely on a fundamental misunderstanding of the systems and their purpose.

International law is not meant to be an international government, but to provide a framework for international governance, oversight of diplomatic relations, to provide incentives for diplomatic transparency, and to provide a framework for diplomatic negotiation which is accessible to all states. In this, it does a pretty good job. A major cause of the world wars (both of them) was that there were no universally recognized tools or institutions which provided a basis for negotiation. A handful of countries dictated all international relations because they were the only countries physically capable of diplomacy, and their resources allowed them to engage in far more advanced forms of diplomacy, including the manipulation of treaties for the creation of pretexts. What the UN and other international institutions has done is it has created an international forum where all countries can interact more-or-less freely with oversight which can attempt to mediate their disputes so that countries don't have to constantly ask themselves whether the negotiations are just to buy for time or something. Why do you think Israel is so adamantly against Palestinian UN membership? It's because Palestinian UN membership could result in the international community more actively sanctioning Israel for negotiating in bad-faith. Prior to the UN, there was basically no way to know if your enemies were negotiating in good-faith or not, and this was a major cause for war because the only way to have real confidence in your diplomatic position was to use force to secure it.

As for the democracy of it, the UN isn't meant to be a democracy. The people who drafted the UN were intelligent and realized a democratic international system was unworkable in a world where nations have incredibly varying levels of power. If every country had equal power in the legal system, there would be no reason for the handful of great powers to play ball. Why would they? They could get a better deal by just being outlaw states. By having the security council memberships, you can actually try to get these small handful of countries to work in a constructive manner. You can create a more fair international system by having them on board, even if the system gives them a lopsided amount of power, simply because the alternative is that the system have no constructed norms at all. Great powers have a disproportionate level of power and you can't abolish that by getting rid of the paper that says they can veto resolutions. The alternatives being presented are either just a return to the League of Nations, or a total breakdown of any norm-based international order.

I just would encourage women to stay at home, have children, do the chores, and men to work and bring the money home. However, if anyone wants to do it in a different way, such as both working and doing the chores, stay at home dad and working mom, etc, that is fine to me. I believe in certain things, but I do not wish to force that think on anyone. Besides, this is a game. And I am conservative, but not to that extreme.


How exactly are women "made" for that and only that? The ability to breastfeed doesn't mean that women can't be good lawyers.
