hbomberguy has said/done many bad things outside of that

I haven't seen all of hbomberguy's stuff, but of what I have seen, I found him to be pretty funny. I'm curious to know, and disappointed to hear, about the bad things.

I have a lot of hope, but a lot of bad feelings about the future. I have plenty of friends and intimacy, but somehow still feeling lonely. I know what I need to do in my life, but I'm losing a lifestyle that offered me the freedom that enabled healing in my life.

I feel like I'm in limbo waiting for a great change. I need to discard a lot of ideas and patterns in my lifestyle that are holding me back. I need to nurture the effective Anarchist in my mind and unleash the passion at the center of someone engaged in active war.

I honestly just chuckle at the meme because of the irony of how "NPC" they are in comparison. It's like the "snowflake" thing. The irony goes way over their head as they yell it, and I could never take it seriously enough to be offended by it.

But because of the types of people using it often, it is now yet another alt-right dogwhistle that outs them to anyone paying attention to general political discourse.

I've always considered a person at best a "centrist" when they tolerate oppression from the rich/bigots/misogynists/white-supremacists/queerphobic people, but "the left" is about no longer tolerating that shit to me. So I've never understood the idea that the "left" is supposed to be tolerant.

Tolerating nazis during rising fascism is not "tolerance', it's just looking the other way so that unjustified and racist/misogynist/queerphobic intolerance could thrive.

Same story here. I abandoned reddit once LWSE got shutdown and began lurking on the wordpress site until finally making an account like a year ago. Since then, I mostly spend my time here.

I pretty much stopped being on reddit once saying "bash the fash" was a bannable offence, while helicopter jokes were "flippantly" flying around untouched all over the place, indicating what a shithole it had become. The final nail on the coffin though was when they closed the code.

I'm honestly curious why you even spend the time to do this.

edit: Also:

The mods are so stupid they think they can get rid of us by ip banning, using cookies to ban, etc...

lol never claimed we could get rid of anybody. The site allows Tor addresses and non-JS. Bans aren't that intense as you have demonstrated. But seriously, what a waste of your time. Why is it even worth it?

"Lets invest in the internet technologies and solidify its global presence ever more! Instead of rolling it back, we can just increase production and dependance on the shit that is too much for our habitat to bare!"

"Will we be able to do cocaine and have power over lots of people?"

"Obv"

"Yea, fuck the habitat, lets do that!"

This is an important time to point out the relationship between canada hosting most of the world's mining corporations and brasil's new fascist dictator. Business as usual for capitalism. Worldwide corporatism at work.

We must stop the chaos that these corporations bring to the world in the form of fueling dictators that are violently ousting large groups of already oppressed: indiginous, marginalized, antifascist, feminist, LGBTQ+ and even just politically "leftwing" people included.

There is nothing pernicious or dehumanizing about the declaration that "all cops are bastards". They don't have to be cops, they choose to be cops. Don't apologize for bastards. They are all thug gangsters for the capitalists. Without their violence, or the support of their "force's" violence, there would be no class system.

I had downloaded all the Rifts books hoping to play one day. I only played once when I was a kid and it was a star wars themed one. I was a wookie that had to have a translator with me to communicate with people, and the translator died, so I just trusted my instinct and bashed skulls in when it seemed appropriate. My team-mates turned on each-other when one turned out to be sith in disguise, and I didn't know who to fight and just died from the attack.

I've always wanted to play more, but never did as I never really met too many people that played after that experience.

I'd be interested in the forum, and I like the scenario you described! I hate the on-rails politics of video games, and tabletop RPGs could have some real Anarchy!

I like the overall message, but so far non-human animals have a waay better track record than the human ones.

Otherwise, I agree there is a serious problem with the "dehumanizing" of people who break laws that really just serve to destroy and enslave everyone.
