Yay, the publicly funded institution that reached the last cultural and scientific milestone americans still hang their hat on 60 years later has been privatized.

His corporations are nothing but bags of debt and broken promises whose impending implosions will sicken the economy, but he has a rocket that can land upright!

I mean not successfully, Space-X and Virgin are both passion projects from two people who accidentally tripped over billions of dollars, nothing will actually come of this shit except some collaborations with national and international agencies who are still light-years ahead in terms of technology, man power, and funding

Yeah, he's a ruthless cunt, he swindles tax evades and robs the taxpayer to stay rich. He does it pretty skillfully of course.

Elon got all his money by having some money and using it to buy out some people who were basically the first people to have a viable model for a good but inevitable idea. They probably don't got shit compared to him either.

You don't know what evil is. You stay rich by not selling assets. You get rich through inheritance.

I'm really stoked about the new economy. People are going to have to go back to the industrial age for a while in order to get their national economies on point. We're looking at a new golden age.

Also this, but unironically... Why are there always these awkward, shoehorned discussions about Elon on every website, bait just to talk about him? It's almost like someone's being paid to post them.

No, that's how radicalization works. Ostracizing a person from their communities is how you make a school shooter. If someone is angry, they're angry about something, whether that something is real or propaganda, it is still real to them. Bring them in, show them love, let them meet, address, and become acquainted with the problem/people that made them angry. Somewhere in this process, smoke a bowl.... repeatedly in this process actually.

"a child who is not embrace by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth"

I actually had a great conversation with an "an"cap type who had some prejudiced beliefs in my opinion on IRC earlier today that was surprisingly pleasant and he legitimately said that I changed his mind about a few things, and he changed my mind about my absolutism against anyone who identifies to the right liberalism, some of the far right are truly beyond saving, and they should be met with force, but a lot of them just are ignorant and scared of the unknown

Deplatforming prominent propagandists is not the same as ostracizing individual sadbois.

Vulnerable white boys should be shown compassion and a chance for forgiveness (*UP TO A POINT*) so they don't burn down the village, but professional grifters like Milo Yabbadabbadoo and Lauren Southern et al. can go kick rocks.

What's that quote from? It's a good one.
>far right beyond saving
Usually once a person has started to use a political ideology as their primary statement of who or what they are as a person, they've stopped thinking and solely resort to appeals to authority. This goes for any political ideology and for that matter, religion. (and most isms) That does not mean they're ignorant or scared, it means that they've given up on the conversation. This also doesn't mean that they're beyond help, but it's a hell of a fight to get a human who's given up on their own thoughts to get them thinking again.
>beyond saving
>saving
I'm probably coming off as a dick here, due to the nature of text, and apologize if I am, but this line of thought is likely part of your difficulties. I don't think I've ever seen a situation go well where one party went in thinking they were trying to "save" the other... just look at any intervention. The only times that tends to "work" is when they (the savior) personally usurps the position of the authority figure for their subject/target/poorbastard, which doesn't actually solve the root of the problem and leads to an inevitable relapse of the original problem, even if it takes a different face. Don't mean that to come off as a lecture, I just try to get these thoughts out when they come up.

Yeah I'll give you that one, but when it's not applied universality, it fuels the fire. Oh well, we'll have plenty of threads on THAT topic thanks to Jack at Twitter.

and now you've made this about race.... Why?

We actually used to think this. "Let them express themselves, it's the only way to show how horrible these ideas are." "When you hide them, they grow," "hate dies in the light," etc. It's not indicative of right wing views.

Yeah, that's what worked for getting the KKK to stop being so obnoxious. Nobody showed up to the rallies, and as a result, they stopped having them for the most part. I say for the most part, because now the KKK is mostly spooks larping as the KKK for media attention.

>What's that quote from? It's a good one.

it's an old African proverb, i got it from this video. obviously it's not impartial but no media is, they're just honest about their beliefs and I agree 100% with their analysis of these people, having previously been one. i didn't actually believe anything, i hated myself for being queer and mentally ill and what I perceived as "stunted' having felt like I reached every milestone in life later than other people, and putting other people down is a lot easier than building yourself up
