  1. The last conservative PM hid in a cupboard: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/24/canadian-pm-stephen-harper-ottawa-shooting The last conservative candidate had dual american citizen: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/scheer-has-american-citizenship-1.5307986 A patriot, in my opinion is someone that respects the place that he is in. It does not matter if you are a conservative or not. Lots of classical liberals or libertarians have more decency than the two above and their followers in my view. Less hypocrtical I might add.
  2. Fascism, communism all fall into this definition. Group thinking that leads to hysteria and extremism from both sides. Once the individual right of people are put second for "a greater good" the road in my opinion leads to hell.
  3. Who knows, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz or Isaac Newton's material might be soon declared unfit to be taught. Is their privilige that made then invent calculus and derivates amongst other things. Maybe we can start a debate about that and analyze it how we can make people comfortable ? Is shocking what some of these communists have done in one generation. The level of suspicion between the masses, turning family against family, going after traditions and customs, it is a game that has been played for hundreds and hundreds of years and one big sign of it is the attack on people with brains, the intellectual class by trying to create a one class system. This is what the universities are becoming in my opinion, pushing an old game with a new name. I remember to this day my grandma crying when she was talking about not eating for a few days or when waiting in line for 3 hours and were no eggs left. This is where mediocrity leads. My personal experiences is true, they make me irrational and BIAS most of the time but I learnt to live with it. We all have our flaws.
  4. CNN's way of saying Happy Independence Day:
  5. On my end it shows like the image can not display properly, most likely a corrupt source, it does now show a plain circle like the other users that have no picture.
  6. Mr. Moonbox sir, this is my first time joining a political forum of this type, I find it extremely useful to come here a few minutes every hour to distract my mind from the stress of work, so yes I agree it has no substance. But big things have small beginnings, you have people here being on this forum for years, is like showing up to the gym and everyone else has a head start. I tried taking an elective class in university one time, some low grade politics/sociology class I don't even remember what it was. I quit after 2 classes, do you think I have time coming back from a calculus class to be lectured about privilege ? So that speaks to the experience that I have in an academic setting, everything else is just personal experiences and philosophies I came across, one being the work of Ayn Rand. P.S.: Your Display picture is not showing up.
  7. That's fine, every individual can make their own case. I am not into changing people to see the world the way I see it, that's arrogance. Do you think is normal for someone in the first sentence to mention "alt right" ? What does the alt right have to do with my perception about this topic ? Every time someone disagrees with these enlightened individuals take a look at how fast the accusations fly. So don't accuse me to use silly rhetoric, some people deserve it and as a citizen/tax payer I can say whatever I want to say. You can use all the big words you want, talk non-endless policy, nobody takes you serious anymore including minorities, lgbtq and all the groups that you constantly use for your political points. Why do you think the sheep go out and vote for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders ? Because your mainstream politics are mostly hypocrisy. How some consider themselves champions of conservative causes, I consider myself advocating for basic individual rights which in my opinion is the key to freedom for every single person of whatever background.
  8. My thesis is that there are individuals that even when Rome was burning they were still emerged in non-ending hypocrisy and they could not understand how come the world was crumbling around them ? These individuals consider themselves morally superior, well educated, sometimes by privilege, you always tend to find them talking about policy & objective evidence that is as long as the financial stability in their bank account is safe. Furthermore, due to these individuals naivety masses of not so intelligent people of all races are threatening law and order in North America. My prediction will be that these individuals will act like the mayor of one Washington state city that had a change of heart as soon as it got too close to her house. These uneducated masses come mostly from the university system which allowed mediocrity to take over the campus by selling a dream in my opinion. Now, policy ? Please enlightened us, I want to learn something new.
  9. I accept my limitations when it comes to debating and I do not have the academic language for it. My brain has a different operating system but I would love to see how many experts in debating know what a parabola is ? I can maintain an ok discussion in your area of expertise, do you know the basics of mine ? All i have in these points that I am making are personal experiences, I calibrate them by listening to what other individuals have to say.
  10. Yes, that's right Michael, is all based on my experience and interactions with other individuals in society. I could definitely browse the internet for hours and find you links but I am not an activist or in the alt right camp to really care about changing anyone's mind, especially yours. Here is some links so you can feel better: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/academic-extremism-comes-to-canada/article33185073/ https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/08/opinion/sunday/a-confession-of-liberal-intolerance.html The good news is that the movement of mediocrity did not make it yet to the Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Information Technology or the Mathematics Department in which I received my degree, with honors, after hard work. Now, with the help of individuals like yourself that love to talk but not put their money where their mouth is, I have no doubt that with time those departments as well will be conquered. I am going to produce goods and services for customers now, you have a great day, I recommend chamomile tea for your phobia and paranoia regarding the alt right.
  11. Wait, this is satire right ? Part of the reason, i will admit I have a hard time seeing sexism is because i find people that are describing such events not real. What made your computer in your head, the brain, process that this is ok to do ?
  12. Below are my personal views on this matter: *Academic merit results from the successful performance of individuals regardless of background. *Individuals success is no longer considered a reference point for evaluation in universities, only collective traits are now the priority: gender, race, religion, etc. *The Government is pumping money through programs like OSAP for people to chase their dream and the average to enter a university it can be as low as 60%. *Critical thinking is not a priority in universities anymore, professors in social science classes main priority is not to teach but to discredit our Western Civilization. *There are calls for mathematics itself to be open for interpretation and a sign of a racist culture: https://www.nationalreview.com/2017/10/math-racist-university-illinois-professor/ *A record number of students favor socialism over capitalism. Thoughts ?
  13. Michael I have a question for you, how can you be a fiscal conservative and in the same time such a liberal (borderline activist) when it comes to social issues ? Are you donating money to these causes ? How exactly are you supporting this other than debating in such a philosophical matter and blaming white men in a collective matter ?
  14. The mainstream establishment fraction on both sides is one of the main factors that leads to the average individual citizen becoming more and more divided and reaching out for the extremes. The arrogance and the tone like they are morally superior to the rest of us is what causes people on both sides to choose characters like Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders. I hope the day will come when the LGBTQ community and the minority communities will turn to these individuals and tell them to be quiet, they can speak and defend their position for themselves.
