so is that dude facing prosecution? wasnít Denver pd calling it ďhomicideĒ?

pretty sure even if you shoot a guy as private security they have to investigate it. justifiable homicide is a thing tho.

honestly Iíve been developing a theory of why things have gotten to this point and a lot of it has to do with the liberal inclination to think that 50%+ of the country is stupid and unintelligent. i think for the most part, conservatives understand that theyíre being lied to, but they simply donít care because their politicians deliver them the things that matter - less taxes for the Ford and jetski dealers, sure, but mostly they own the libs and the people who talk down to them. they know the republicans are going to keep black people out of their neighborhood. thereís some % that are all-in on trump and have been brain poisoned by the internet, but itís probably on aggregate the same % of people who are all-in on leftism in america

but the rest... itís why bernie did well in fox townhalls or w/e, because he didnít treat the audience as stupid. i donít know how you get beyond the point weíre at now without people actually recognizing that you canít write off half the country as unsalvageable idiot golems who need their coastal betters to show them the way

coastal lib called me dumb so I'm gonna vote against my own interests to spite them. that'll show em who's the real dumb person!

why do you think them voting for the dems would be in their interests, given that the dems also don't want to actually improve life for the poor/working class? c.f. ACA, et. al.

i would say, very broadly, there are three main things the american left is interested in -

* national single payer health care
* immediate action on climate change
* strong workers rights

none of those require the "abolishment of capitalism"

you're absolutely right

but in the face of an opposition party who believes in none of those and actively works to undermine all of them enabled by a media and capital class with a vested interest in opposing them, screaming about how you won't get involved unless all three are guaranteed is a quick route to no one listening or caring what you think

at one point i probably believed there was an actual coherent endgame in mind for the GOP, but at this point I think it's been so hollowed out by psychotic true believers that I don't think there really is any vision other than "gently caress you". it's like that book about the free city project in NH - just a bunch of independently wealthy individuals with their own ideas about what freedom looks like, with no overarching morality or identity or cohesive vision for a society, just a bunch of rich idiots and assholes who have been coasting for most of their lives on unearned wealth.

Iím very familiar with left behind and that set - Iím sure the evangelical crowd is still way into millennial dispensationalism or w/e. but itís a shrinking part of the country, religiosity is falling off a cliff

my gut feeling is the opposite of this. we'll see.

yeah, i mean, i could be wrong but i think the thing most people miss is that most people loving hate donald trump and that the only reason he won last time was because millions of nominal republicans didn't think he could actually be that bad. those people have been cooped up in their pleasant suburban homes for the past seven months becoming increasingly bitter and realizing that yes, he could indeed be that bad.

people are loving tired of politics.
