  1. I've been reading along with this entire thread, and it's the best forum I've seen anywhere for discussing the situation. Leo, I am always 100% on board with your political views and like that you take a balanced approach. Agreed that mantras such as "defund the police" and screaming about the police being racist as a whole does nothing to further the left's agenda and sows further division. Also enjoying this forum much more since Q-supporters have been banned. It's too difficult to have an adult conversation about anything when you're spending most of your time trying to explain basic facts to people who don't like facts. So thanks 😀
  2. LOL I noticed the same thing as you. I always found Brian a bit creepy to be honest, but I liked a lot of the people he interviewed and the plant medicine talk. When he went full conspiratard "mah freeze peach" and started begging for more and more green to start his own platform scam my eyes nearly rolled out of my head. Even more so when I saw people l liked, such as youtuber YourMateTom and others starting to parrot him. It's interesting to look at the reviews for his course, which are all that they were scammed big time. This guy is snake oil in human form.
  3. Wise to take the middle road :). Flouride has become part of the conspiracy woo and when the strident anti-flouride people try to convince me of its evils, their obvious fanaticism is a big red flag in my opinion. When someone tells you they have done their research and they are now an expert, you can be sure that their 'research' is in one direction only, and not from looking in a balanced way at a wide variety of studies.
  4. This is very eloquently argued, thank you. Yes, as you said, the spread of QAnon in times of world upheaval is like people grabbing the lifeboat of seeming certainty when everything feels anything but and believing someone like Trump is a superhero who will save the world from the lizard baby eating Democrats. I have also come across those who spread these theories on facebook, who tell everyone else that they are brainwashed and not 'awake' like the theorist - this reminds me so much of cult behaviour and it is obvious that the person posting feels superior to those they are speaking down to.
  5. Thanks Leo. I took a long break from this forum because I got tired of it being littered with immature comments, ideologies and sexist/racist/discriminatory posts which are already all over the internet. This is a positive step :).
  6. I am a bit baffled by people on this forum championing Trump, an unhinged Authoritarian who wanted to unleash the military on his own people. The man is a malignant narcissist baby who does nothing but watch Fox News for most of the day and send whiny tweets demonising those who speak out against him. If you want to blame those who are standing up to baby Dictator and the authoritarian right for all the issues, then your understanding of the issues is limited. No institution is perfect, but the way liberals, anti-racism protesters etc are being demonised and falsely painted as some nebulous "Deep State" is ridiculous and you have been hoodwinked into looking the other way while the real crooks tear down environmental protections, hand more and more of the wealth to the 1%, remove protections for endangered species, increase military spending, dismantle democracy etc. We need to focus on the real problems and Trump is NOT the solution because he is not capable of thinking of anyone but himself and is a crook and criminal from way back. Want to know who Trump really is, watch "You've Been Trumped" which was made long before he became President.
  7. Nobody is blaming the President for rioting that may be happening, though the vast majority are peacefully protesting. They are blaming him for threatening to sic the military on his own people, and encouraging greater police brutality against peaceful protesters who are demonstrating against police brutality. He's behaving like any Autocrat, and he's definitely to blame for that.
  8. https://www.brookings.edu/research/president-barack-obamas-first-two-years-policy-accomplishments-political-difficulties/ I guess if you hate Obama you can shout from the rooftops that he did "nothing" without evidence. Obama inherited the substantial mess created by the Bush Administration. Were you expecting him to make instant sweeping changes in two years with trillions in debt from Republican mess? I think a lot of people like to criticise from the sidelines while knowing very little about how Government operates.
  9. Obama did all he could in office but was stymied at every turn by a Republican House and Senate, who opposed everything he tried to do. The President is not all-powerful.
  10. Demonising those with no power while the President is threatening to turn the military on his own people for exercising their 1st Amendment rights. You are looking the wrong way for danger my friend.
  11. Exactly. If you look at his subreddit, the majority of his followers there actually disagree with his Neo-Liberal political agenda but value the rationality of his arguments against say Trump when speaking with members of the so-called "intellectual dark web (they are almost univerally Trump apologists)." He is limited in many ways but serves to sway those who would otherwise be swallowing the likes of Dave Rubin or Jordan Peterson wholesale on matters of Trumpism and religion. Personally, I have big issues with his blaming "the left" for a few noisy college students "shutting down free speech" but appreciate that he also criticises the right for religious fundamentalism and all the evils that come with it. He is not awake but he serves a purpose.
  12. Adeptus Psychonautica has released videos since he released that one showing his disbelief and horror at Rettig's abusive practises, despite hearing this explanation. I agree with him. I can not find any way to justify forcing someone to stand up while on a heavy dose of 5meo then just allowing them to fall flat on the ground with no support, forcing water down their nose and mouth constantly (any medical expert would be horrified), kicking them, shouting abuse at them and then forcing them to take more high doses without their consent. 5meo is already the most intense experience a person will ever have. Why do they need to be waterboarded or abused physically and verbally on top of that?
