  1. Politics & Stuff

    Of course we're talking in ideal. In practice, corporations with most money run in the US so in this domain it's basically whatever the NRA can get away with will remain law. The media is 100% complicit in the way they always glorify the psychos. Half of those nutters will have said somewhere that they want their names to be remembered or something along those lines and the media helps create the next mass shooter by repeating his name, interviewing his family...etc. Regarding creating a cultural shift about guns, you can make ad campaigns, add it to curricula and spread awareness in any way possible but it would all be a drop in the ocean unless the way Hollywood portrays gun violence is changed.
  2. Politics & Stuff

    Course it's mental, mate. But my point wasn't that there shouldn't be less guns or a ban on automatic rifles, but that along with that there needs to be an understanding that any tighter gun laws will be implemented disproportionately against minorities particularly people of color just like drug laws are, and that any any tighter gun restrictions should start with the demilitarization of the police because you can't give the state a monopoly on violence. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, imo...
  3. Politics & Stuff

    The thing is talking about guns is the easy to do. But it's really more complex than just that because a )banning guns does not make them disappear and b )the US is not nearly the only country in the world where a large portion of the population are armed to the teeth. For example in Lebanon it would be hard to find a household without a rifle in it but we've only ever had one mass shooting in post civil war history in the 90s. That's not at all to defend their insane gun laws. I'm an anarchist but even I can't for the life of me understand why normal citizens would need assault rifles. But the difficult thing to do would be to look for the root causes of so much widespread violence in the richest nation in history, particularly among the most privileged and dominant demographic that are white makes but also look at how mental illness is treated by society as whole.

    Jeez that shooting Las Vegas beyond awful. The US so badly needs to address mental illness and gun control issues more seriously. Thoughts with the families of the victims...
  5. The FIFA Thread

    Yup. I'm at 75% now, I can almost taste it!
  6. Since the other one got archived. If the other can be fixed please merge them later. Bayern are 1-0 against Real Madrid. I fully expect them to make it to the final.
  7. Politics & Stuff

    Looks like fascism is still alive and kicking in Spain...
  8. The FIFA Thread

    No Drinkwater either. The last one I had was 2014 so I'm quite happy with the $44 I spent! Still needs a couple more days to finish download with my connection but with Origin it's playable at 24% (only quick matches) which I thought was a very nice touch for countries with poor connections.
  9. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Thank fuck we're the best defensive side in the league or this would have been so much more embarrassing....
  10. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Now imagine if we had played the whole match with a striker on AND Hazard....
  11. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Where the fuck was this attacking intent before we went down??
  12. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Yeah, I meant the technique and ability on the ball. They're so far ahead of us in that regard.
  13. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Let's be honest, we haven't got anyone in our team, bar Hazard, who could have scored that goal. City have got at least half a dozen players who can. THAT is the difference. They are so much better than us on paper and on the field.
  14. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    If Conte has the guts, which he doesn't, he should put Bats on for Fabregas now BEFORE we concede.
  15. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    This gon be a looooooong half...
  16. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    SOMEONE TELL WILLIAN WHICH SIDE WE ARE ATTACKING THIS HALF FFS!!!
  17. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    That bald linesman has been more involved in the match than Cesc Fabregas!
  18. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    No he clearly signaled he wants to be subbed off. Unless you're saying that Morata is the one who made the tactical change
  19. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    LOL WIllian
  20. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Our already slim chances of winning this just halved...
  21. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    It's so frustrating. Especially when the player being caught can see across the line. FFS That's what we needed!!
  22. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Ffs why can't anyone stay onside?!
  23. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Never thought I'd see Rudiger flagged offside...
  24. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    Jeez that was a let off...
  25. Chelsea 0-1 Man City

    There's so much space behind them, but it's so hard to break that first line of pressing!
