That probably increases the likelihood of war though... Cry

Am I wrong to post things like this? It probably makes regressives feel uncomfortable... They see it as a "microaggression"... Telling them that their world view related to political economy is wrong and that every day, more and more people all around the world understand that...

They might be even worse than uncomfortable, they might be frightened...

Do you suppose they will try to have me silenced or killed so they can feel more comfortable? Cheesy

If you're asking why it wasn't responded to, in my case it's because it's a spam thread.  You posted a link with no content as your OP.  I don't read those.  Well, I mean I read the OP, but I didn't click on the link

The link clearly says "individualism increasing across the world" and I provided my opinion that that probably increases the likelihood of war.

If you have nothing to say about it, don't. Thanks.

BTW, the link is full of content and we are winning.

I answered your question, Bugsy.

Yes, the thread has a title, your OP gave no indication what the link was talking about.  A well formed OP gives a quick summary and opinion at a minimum.  It doesn't just say the link has a title, here's another title.  Now go to it, read it and tell me what you think

You couldn't get an hint from "individualism is increasing across the world"? Roll Eyes

Not even when I added "we are winning"? Cheesy

Of course that gave me a hint.  I agreed there was a title, which is a hint.  An OP which is just a title is spam, Bugsy.  And appropriate OP at a minimum gives a quick overview on what the thread is about and gives your opinion about that topic.

Yet another point you're making me repeatedly repeat, Pete.  Do you ever read and process a post and move forward building on that?  This is a discussion with you, and I'm not the only one telling you that.  Not that you notice

I guess this means you will never tell me what you mean by "the consent of the people". That's fine.

Not again, no.  Not unless there's a point.  I certainly don't believe after all the other times that you will pay attention this time.

The last time I answered your question, you QUOTED THE ANSWER and demanded I answer the question.  I said you just quoted the answer, and you demanded again I answer the question.

Explain how answering it again will change anything

If you tell me what you mean by "the consent of the governed" I won't ask again. That will be a change.
You won't have to keep saying over and over at length that you already told me what you mean when you say "the consent of the governed". That will be a change too, and it will save you lots of time and effort.
