Is it any surprise? There's no shortage of photos of Nazi flags next to Trump flags, both sold at event stalls and carried in crowds. There's no shortage of neo-Nazis turning up in support at Trump events. Indeed, there's no shortage of several different extremist groups that come out in support of...

Didn't Steve Bannon get a speaking slot? Or am I thinking of a different event?

We can gestate a mouse embryo for 11 days, half its natural gestation. My educated guess is that the second half is harder, not easier - and there is a big leap from a 22-day gestation to a nine-month gestation. AI isn't just going to be able to conjure up new knowledge, at least not genuine knowled...

Artificial wombs are a huge technological leap that we're currently nowhere near to. Genetic editing to select for "super soldiers" is also something we're currently nowhere near to. We have no idea at all what makes for a "super soldier", and they'd still be within the bounds of...

As explained in the previous thread and in the rules of the forum.. - users may attack ideologies - users may attack public figures associated with an ideology (Marx, Lenin, Sanders, Reagan, whoever) Users may not attack adherents of an ideology en masse - for example, saying "Marxists...

I guess I'm just not sure that people who (understandably) have avoided thinking about the issue will now pay attention to a long-form interview. Maybe I'm underestimating Carlson's appeal.

Thought I'd replied to this last night, but evidently not. Two parts to my post - the "user" part and the "mod" part. As a user - I share OP's broad disdain for Marxism, but I think OP has over-egged the pudding somewhat. Political arguments that require someone to accept your me...

Not really interested in watching the whole thing. Have seen a few clips. Seems like Carlson didn't really know what he was getting into - just encountered an Eastern European grandfather who liked telling long rambling stories, when he was expecting a Western politician who wanted to speak very ca...

I don't know enough about the investigator to say, but those sorts of comments about a sitting politician seem inappropriate for a government report in any case.

Yeah this thread is transphobia dressed up as superficially pro-trans. Transphobia is against WrongPlanet rules. Ergo, locked.

Here's the dirt on the peerages that are: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hereditary_peer It's all rather complicated. :scratch: It sure is. The article mentions Irish nobility--I would have thought that the Irish had banned titles of nobility. The Irish nobility are not actually Irish in the modern ...

The "nobility" are basically irrelevant, outside of the royal family and the Duke of Westminster. Class operates slightly differently to the US, but I think the gap between the working and middle class (which, to be clear, is not a sharp dividing line) is broadly common to any society with...

Yep. Officially, anyone who arrives outside of schemes like the ones for Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong, will have their claim automatically shoved off onto Rwanda rather than properly considered in the UK.

"exempts name changes due to marriage" That's how you know the law is specifically meant as a f***-you to trans people. Cisgender straight lawmakers ALWAYS make sure there's an exception for themselves, always. It's a law from the 1920s, but yes - there's no good reason why changing your ...

 This Thread  , started by  This Member  , has devolved beyond redemption, in my opinion.  I have seen posts in that thread containing lies and threats of violence by the OP, some of which I have reported. Thanks - I've posted a warning. Unless the OP starts engaging properly with the things people...
