    Can't imagine of a bigger act of cuckery than laying one's life on the line to defend the statue of a blithering idiot who couldn't even speak in complete sentences.

    Eh. Flag burning is legit freedom of speech. Destruction of the statue is more concerning, particularly if it was a work of art or an antiquity rather than just a fab item.

    I'd say no, it doesn't. There are exceptions to be sure, like protecting a facility that manufactures insulin or preserving a unique or culturally important structure or one's personal livelihood, but this probably doesn't qualify. That said, I don't know the details of the specific statue.

    I support flag burning if you actually bought the flag that you're burning. However, I'm pretty sure that they don't own that statue. Looks like an antiquity to me, though. In other words, I can't legally condone this, huh?

    I can't imagine justifying vandalism and using "cuckery" unironically outside of actual sex. This is how we used to deal with rebellion:

    And this is when they had good points and not the rabble swarming the streets nowadays.

    The bad thing about giving a lot of power to anyone is that at some point you'll have to deal with a total bastard handling that power.

    The history of politics is the history of balancing "getting shit done" and "protection from bastards"
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Again, I have no qualms about destroying your own property, but why can I not protect my property, like I protect myself or my friends and family? These rioters are just the Yellow Turbans of today. Once their insurgency has hit this point, it's irrelevant how many "good points" they have.

    "Any rebel within firing distance sprouted feathers from their chest." That is a beautiful line.

    Oh, wait. There is one. Using currency with that man's face on it. I can help "relieve" you of that burden, though.

    I'm not sure when this rebellious madness will go away, though. Frankly, this culture of victim glorification makes me sick. George Floyd may be a victim, but he is certainly no hero. George Washington is a hero, but he doesn't need to be a saint. Though, this may be obvious coming from the me, who calls Cao Cao brother Mengde and Nobunaga Oda Nobunobu (though, I'm sure that we all do).

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean to say by that, but surely someone doesn't have to be a "hero" (I don't recall anyone even saying that Floyd was, or a saint for that matter) for one to grieve their death and fight for justice on their behalf. And of course, being a "hero" especially in the Classical sense is no guarantee of actually being a good person (a la the whole "would you rather be great or good" dilemma).

    But that's just it. I would rather glorify heroes, knowing full well what that means. Also, I'm pretty sure that burying someone in a golden coffin after parading around their remains counts more as glorification than grieving. As for calling George Floyd a hero, some TV news said so.

    Cult of "hero worship" when it means ignoring the value of the weak can blur pretty close to outright fascism though (the government should favor the strong to crush the weak for their own gain). Not sure what your personal beliefs are, but I think you should be careful on the kind of rhetoric you end up espousing. I actually agree that the word "hero" is often misused, but either way Floyd's death was a terrible injustice that demands serious response. You can't brush off something like that with lofty-sounding rhetoric about "heroes".

    Didn't Iskander say something along the lines that heroes should appear like "shining stars" for the people to reach for, rather than martyrs whose only value is the pity that they garner? A Throne built on hegemony is a beautiful sight, while a throne built on martyrdom is an abomination.

    "Brushing it off" was never my intent. However, if your wallet gets stolen, you're a victim, not a hero, regardless of what punishment does or does not fall on the perp.

    It's not about all the rebellion stuff. Go wild there. It's using the same video over and over again in such a short time frame. At least get some different stuff.

    Unfortunately, no one has posted Makai Tensho clips on YouTube. Or at the very least, not ones that summarize it the way that I need it to.

    To be fair this is on a wholly different level of clownery even for Gen News. About the only thing that even came close to this is that one "drinking peron" comment from really long ago.

    If feels as though you can only look at politics as a cultural thing, no thoughts about about how the current structure of power does not allow people to live a respectable life and not be afraid of state violence. You answer with videos and complain that people do not protest in a way you approve of, and as such they do more damage to society than gangs that are approved by the state without accountability. May I remind you when athletes where taking a knee, they were mocked. Actually, one of them was voted the most hated player, this is despite the rapist and abusers that are active in the NFL.

    You want people to care for a community that outcast them and abuse them. You may have been benefited by the current system, but many have never owned anything because they are not allowed by it and because of this, they will never start acting in the way you want them, and they should not.

    You like to use videos, I suggest you to watch these:

    In terms of the videos that you linked, the speaker appears to have the same binary way of thinking that's essentially "If you don't support the Yellow Turbans, you must be a minion of the Eunuchs". Real life ain't that simple, dearie.

    A man was murdered in cold blood by the police that are supposed to protect and serve us, and people are using this moment as a call to arms to address a very real sickness in American culture.

    And here you are over here whining about victim glorification.

    What would you have us do? Spit on the graves of the all the people murdered by police and do nothing because it might seem a little too communist for your liking?
