okay hear me out, we all go to the voting store, we pick up some quality ballots, then we hold the cops down and give them enough papercuts on their fingertips that they eventually bleed out!

That is highly unfortunate, but predictable. Hopefully, this policy is rescinded, although with the political situation in that country I have my doubts about whether a constitutional form of government will even remain through the new year. It seems, from a distance, that the election will trigger some very longstanding grievances on multiple parties, and lead to some forms of civil strife and perhaps change of government.

Hopefully, the people will prevail, but who is to say now? I know not.

The satellite internet is pretty recent. I moved out of cable range.

netflix and amazon are just current iterations of what cable tv has always been: funneling selected non-challenging content directly to your screen. there might be 10% worth-watching, but most of it gets pushed out through algorithms, and extremely limited filtering options.

some alternatives:
cinephobe tv (currently on vacation)
films and tv from asia
world cinema and rare films (need nitroflare, but get many downloads for what you would pay netflix for one month.)

I've got satellite internet now. I have to set it up to download in the middle of the night when there's no data cap.

I pretty much stopped pirating things during netflixs heyday. Why bother with slow torrents and a VPN when I could pay a little and watch whatever I wanted?

But no, now I'd have to pay five different streaming services just to watch one or two shows on each. They've made it too inconvenient and expensive to legally watch. So it's been back to the high seas for me.

When I read them make these kinds of arguments, I literally go a bit dissociative as I struggle with trying to think in the circle-logic. I don't know if this speaks to my mental faculties, but I just can't manage to understand the type of thinking they are engaging in without feeling a bit ill/off. I don't know how they convince people with that logic because it's so ass-backwards it hurts my head. But clearly, they get more people into parroting the logic so it must work. I really really don't understand how.
