    We need more info and some infiltrations.

    Neglect I get how such can happen, not feeding your prisoner i get how such can happen. But removing wombs? You need an office, tools, and skilled people to do such a thing, this isn't a one crazy doctor event. Mengele and Unit 731 did not kidnap, their work were supported by government resources.

    People still have the notion the "fascism with Soviet characteristics" promoted by Stalin and the entirety of the USSR with the exception of two people (Khrushchev and Gorby) is somehow what communism really is... or that blood is needed (even though Rosa Luxembourg clearly believed it was unnecessary and so did Bakunin, Allende and Durruti).

    The irony is I wouldn't complain if it was the result of Libertarianism. It is actually the result of a massive ponzi scheme promoted by the US of A in the name of small government, with the GOP (and Reagan) sharing the lion's share of the blame, but the Dem Party also having a significant amount of blame.

    Well, Louis Rossmann did say that the best answer to "are you going to vote for Trump or Biden?" is "I'd rather jump off a cliff instead".

    FUCK BIPARTISANISM. HONEST!

    Then again, if you end up in a situation where one, small slice of your population has control over everything, whether it's wealthy elites, the military, technocrats, industrialists, religious institutions, or whatever, it's inevitably going to end up in a mess. The less power the rest of society has to hold leadership accountable, the faster it goes to shit.
    US: The politicians, bankers, financiers and celebrities.
    USSR: Founding members, politicians, top military brass and weapon manufacturers.
    China: Party top brass, politicians, celebrities, relatives of any of the three, anyone born close to the meeting place of number one.
    Europe: Politicians, diplomats, heads of state, descendants of ancient figure of renown X, analysts.
    Africa: Politicians, celebrities, warlords, top military brass and lobbyists.
    Asia: Politicians, renowned family X, relatives of the former, top military brass.
    Latam: Drug lords, politicians, renowned family X, lobbyists.

    Notice a trend here?

    Or just dispensing with the idea of "representation" which essentially (and especially in Murica and the UK) means "my interests" and "my enemy's interests" and you vote for whichever aligns closest to yours instead of the other way around.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Town_m...n_town_meeting

    You could easily carve up cities into several constituencies that operate like this and leave national law to the collective decisions made by the different town meetings. In this case, the "politician" would just be a compiler/spokesperson for the people. The laws are actually made by them.

    Well, since six months was too short a time for Garland to get put in obviously they're going to wait until after the election. /s

    Nothing to worry about. I’m sure the 4 republicans who previously stated they would not vote on a new justice till after January will stick to their morals and follow through on that pledge

    Supposedly her dying wish was that she not get replaced until Trump was gone.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Putting the fact that she dictated a final statement a few days ago along side that really weird trial balloon el presidente dropped a little while back about putting ted Cruz on the court I have a theory that this was starting to percolate in the back rooms of Washington for a while now. Basically a low key death watch.

    tbh, that's basically the only thing anyone does when Ginsburg was brought up

    I suppose this will provide stronger pressure for whoever follows Trump to stack the court.

    Americans, explain this to me, please: she was an elderly woman who had been fighting a life-threatening illness for some time, right? How is it, then, that apparently there were no mechanisms in place for a succession of some kind?
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    The "succession mechanism" is nomination by the President and confirmation by the Senate. SCOTUS doesn't even need to have 9 justices in order to operate. It can have more, it can have less. 9 has just been the standard for decades, but it is a mostly informal standard. Techinally if the President never nominates another justice the court would just eventually wither away and die.

    Ofc that won't happen. The dissolution of the Supreme Court, that is. The Supreme Court has the authority to determine how the law is interpreted and applied and strike down existing laws that they deem inappropriate or unconstitutional.

    No political movement here is going to give that up so long as there's an opposing political movement.

    Which is kind of weird when you think about it. You'd expect Republicans with their rabid small government mentality would love to abolish the one court that governs every state simultaneously.
