I see where you’re coming from. But there’s a pretty big difference between “democrats in power are weak-willed” and “democrats in general are weak-willed.” Just saying.
The vast majority of Democrats are weak-willed cowards who love to talk about progress but are ultimately conservatives who seek to defend the status quote by doing nothing.
I disagree. I don’t think that Democrats are weak-willed, I’ve been part of a family of Democrats and they’re anything but “weak-willed.” but I do see that my party does have its flaws. For one, I think there’s a problem of unity. Democrats has a wide coalition of activists, liberals, centrists, environmentalists, immigrants, minorities, Refugees from the Republican Party, DINOsaurs, etc. As diverse as it is, that’s also the weakness of the Democratic Party. Everyone has a such a passionate, but different vision of what the country should look like that it makes unity a lot more incoherent. Republicans walk in goose step, but they use that energy to regress and oppress; whilst Democrats have the potential to do good, but strives so hard to appease everyone in their base, they appease no one. So in other words, Republicans organize chaos while Democrats organize chaotically.
Whenever someone from the government says that they’re going to tackle online bullying and harassment, the first thing that comes to mind is the main theme song from “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
The White House: “We will rid the Internet of Bullies.”
The internet user whose surname is Bullies:
Oh shoot, I thought it was Congress that’s supposed to make the laws. I didn’t know that it was God who makes the law. My perception has been shattered. Thank you, you edgy douche, I’ve became closer to God.
Unless there’s an efficient and rational administration to replace it, Using the constitution to overthrow the government right now is a terrible idea. In fact, it might actually make things even worse. When the government is gone, that doesn’t automatically remove parties or factions. Democrats, Republicans, not even extreme groups like the KKK or The Proud Boys won’t disappear overnight. Bad-faith opportunists and reactionaries will take advantage of the power vacuum and it will be messy, and inevitably violent. States will versus states, extremist groups could finally indulge in their disgusting delusions without check, and the political infighting would exasperate into actual fighting. If you thought things were bad now, imagine the immense clusterfuck a government-less America would be. I’m not typically pro-status quo, but I prefer living through a slow and inefficient government than the alternatives.
Thanks man for the backup.
Mate, for every word salad you spew out I would have a full functioning cold bar.
Mate. No one gives a shit. You. Lost. Deal with it. Now go out, cover that ego with a hat and go touch grass. Seriously, you look like a thumb.
Give it to Klobachar, one of the most out of touch senators serving right now, to screw up something as simple as antitrust and transform it into discriminatory, anti-competitive legal nonsense. She has a unique talent of making the most simplest of tasks and make them unbelievably dangerous. I wouldn’t be surprised if she made a bill to help support grocery stores and somehow make them into Nuclear hotspots.
As a resident of Ohio, I apologize for my state’s absolute buffoonery.
I’d rather die.
I guess for trademark fanatics, you could say it’s in vogue to be a dick.
So the first instinct of a politician in reaction to a mass shooter posting their stuff on an website… is to blame the law that allows said website to moderate in the first place. This is like first instinct of rebuking a DUI incident is to call for a second prohibition.
The U.S: We’re proposing a law that blows a hole and “””””might””””” try to cuck over end-to-end encryption for the children.
The U.K: We’re gonna go dirty to ensure that encryption is defeated and the children are safe.
The E.U.: We just wanna be Big Brother lol.
Good points. I’m not ignoring that possibility that this will affect the internet legally in the long run. I apologize if I appeared blissfully ignorant. Just was trying to help a hysteric deal with anxiety.
Bruh, that is hysteria.
But I’m serious: Mate, relax. Texas’ law is terrible, yes. But It’s not the end of the internet nor the end of the world. As long as you live everywhere else other than Texas, you are fine. There’s no need to get this hysterical.
