    There were plenty of nice people who went along with the Nazi agenda. Groupthink works that way.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I was hoping for a statement about Nazi efficiency.

    Let's get one thing straight...these fuckers only care about their Jesus shit and big oil. If anything threatens those two things, it'll be on their agenda for elimination. You know, things like threatening types of science, sexual education, the Endangered Species Act, "queers," the dune sage brush lizard, etc., Let's not be fooled. It's very predictable and I don't think they have any shame admitting it.

    I have the same sympathies about some of those issues. Others I couldn't care less about. As I said, good with the bad.

    The endangered species act can be a piece of shit sometimes. Bad with the good?

    *reads entire thread*



    *notices that it took the same twists and turns as virtually every thread on a controversial topic on any internet forum*







    That said, I largely agree with @Jennifer's insights into how citizens view matters such as this in Pennsyltucky. I never thought I'd say this, but thank god for Philadelphia and its' voting citizens.

    I would like to call Texas' insanity a counterpart to California's.

    Everyone else is Pennsyltucky in various dimensions. Some closer to California, others closer to Texas, and the swing states being the true Pennsyltucky with their sometimes extreme politicians.

    Everyone in this country is dragged by Californian and Texan politics. While we may not seem as important to the primaries and presidential elections, We.Run.Every.Thing.On.The.Background.

    You will be assimilated by California/Philadelphia or Texas/Pittsburgh one way or another if they don't stop each others madness.

    EDIT: Yeah, just found out this comparison is inaccurate.
