  1. You're just labeling people. Mike Lindell is simply a conservative businessman. Would you like to be censored? Would you like to have your business shut down in an instant? Dennis Prager warned us about the broken moral compass of the Western world, which took place in the last hundred years. I don't see any conservatives asking for censorship or the removal of social media accounts.
  2. For the crime of having a different opinion, Mike Lindell has just been banned from Twitter. Several retailers have also stopped selling his products today, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohls and Kroger. When you support freedom of speech, you are no longer allowed to speak. Those are the new rules now. I can't believe this is happening.
  3. @Leo Gura, how about people like Governor Andrew Cuomo, forcing COVID-19 patients into nursing homes? Do you know anything about his horrific measures in response to COVID? Our elderly were the most vulnerable to COVID-19 and Governor Cuomo did it anyway. It was inhumane. How about the other left-wing governors who did the exact same thing and had to change their trajectory when they finally realized their blunders? I don't believe the Republicans were the ones who killed tens of thousands of people needlessly with "their handling of COVID-19".
  4. According to The Week: The Western world is so prosperous precisely because of the family unit. I wish it weren't true but it is in fact true, and reality doesn't tell me otherwise. There are problems in marriage, of course, but those problems have everything to do with human nature and the character of a person. You can't blame a concept like marriage or external circumstances for your problems. "The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it." ― Eckhart Tolle Tolle is right. When I speak with people who have successful marriages, they always tell me that a marriage must be balanced with space. They get involved in making the marriage work. There's no such thing as a successful marriage without input from both partners. Marriage is a noble sacrifice for the purpose of raising children and the perpetuation of your civilization. If it crumbles, social stability is impossible. Although I pretty much value the concept of marriage, I respect the right of every individual when he chooses not to get married.
  5. Because it resonates with them? I wouldn't assume that they're objectively right just because the majority here chooses to listen more to left-wing journalists. The many answers on the topics of this great forum.
  6. Reality. Because they can. Because they want? It's their choice, obviously. I respect their choices.
  7. Some people here tend to listen more to left-wing journalists.
  8. I have a lot of respect for people who love liberty. I also have a lot of respect for those who embrace the family unit. There's nothing wrong with embracing those values. You're not evil if you build your own family. You're not a bad person if you believe in freedom of speech. In terms of Spiral Dynamics, you can be at the highest level and still have your own family and believe in freedom of speech.
  9. With all due respect, it's useless to give you an answer as long as you truly believe what CNN and MSNBC tell you. On the other hand, I highly recommend you to read the article I mentioned above, the interview with Glenn Greenwald, A LEFT-WING JOURNALIST who tells us openly about the dangers of the Biden administration. You might wanna listen to a wise, left-wing journalist since you dismiss everything I'm saying. I gave up arguing with you guys; it's simply counterproductive.
  10. From my understanding, your question insinuates that I'm disturbed by the left or something like that. Perhaps you could ask it differently, without implying something that's not actually true. I'm conscious of the fact that there are many good people on the left. As a classical liberal, do I like seeing the left lambasting the conservative side, projecting all their hate and neurosis 24/7 on CNN or MSNBC?
  11. I'm horrified when I see how broken the moral compass of the Western world is. This video tells everything and it's FASCINATING: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQLITo1sDPY Conservatives are never the enemy. They never were. They aren't racists or authoritarians. It's simply not true what you see on CNN or MSNBC. Most people who own businesses in America are conservatives. They are also the ones who have families and children and take part in the middle class. I was stunned when I found out that most businesses in America are owned by traditionalists, also known as conservatives. These are hard-working people. America is doing so well precisely because of the right side. They are the building-block of American society. I believe in freedom, having a family, a business, and faith in God; the cornerstone of civilization. Without those values, everything crumbles. I know it because I've been reading history books and comprehended what happens in communism or nazism. Or what happens in societies that never seek to build moral civilizations. It's not bad to be a moral individual as long as you understand your dark side, also known as your shadow. "There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them." ― George Orwell We should be proud of Western civilization, the only civilization in the world that abolished slavery. Ludwig van Beethoven tells us that we are unique. We should cherish everything good about the West and the progress it has made.
  12. If you really believe that, I have nothing left to say to you.
  13. Helle. I've stumbled upon a great column published in the Reason newspaper. It's an interview with Glenn Greenwald, a left-wing journalist who wanted to sound an alarm on the Bush-Cheney administration and the Obama administration. Here's an excerpt from the story. I would like to know your thoughts on Glenn's opinions and what can we do about those irregularities. I believe he's pointing out the facts.
  14. "Socialism, in general, has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it." - Thomas Sowell "Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good." - Thomas Sowell My theory on "why are people craving Socialism" is the following: those who can't take care of themselves will always rely on someone else's money. They might be having a mental health issue, health problems, or be physically incapacitated. I believe in Socialism only if you're not able to work, in the sense that you're in a wheelchair or fighting a deadly disease. You get what I'm saying. On the other hand, if you're truly capable of changing yourself to be able to work, you shouldn't be qualified to receive money from the government. You might be an old man, over 70 years old. I'm in favor of pensions. Other than that, don't give healthy people money; it will be their most powerful addiction. It will make them lazy and unproductive. It's addictive to get a government check, or better said, the money you haven't earned. It's not that important but I'll say it. Before embarking on the self-actualization journey, I remember having not only mental health issues but physical health problems as well. I didn't have enough energy for life's daily tasks. Just to brush my teeth or wash my dishes seemed an impossibility, compared to an effort like having to climb the Everest mountain. I was so discouraged, telling myself often: "You're a disgusting human being. You're not capable of anything. Why is it that so many people are in shape while you can't even give up on sugar?" I hated myself. I wanted to get support (correctly) from the government because I wasn't able to deal with the challenges of daily life. I believed in Socialism. And all of that because of my problematic childhood. I grew up in an environment with a depressed, emotionally distant, cold mother in combination with an alcoholic, extremely violent father. Imagine what I was going through as a child. I grew up being moderately depressed without even knowing it. It's ironic, isn't it? After studying @Leo Gura's work (I'm grateful to Leo) and implementing a daily meditation habit, I got temporarily worse. It was a painful purification process. But eventually, I overcame my depression and I started to eat healthier, increasing my energy levels substantially. Now I'm better than ever, having a great job, being present, diligent, and productive. I'm no longer in favor of Socialism because I know what it does to people. I know the impact Socialism has on their lives. It's no joke! People should be liberated through self-actualization, as a government check will make their situation worse and perpetuate their own problems. A government check can stifle your development as a human being. I'm glad I didn't take money from the government.
