  1. he was unbanned a long time ago and posted after that, its just that none of us have seen him for a long time as far as i can tell...
  2. Eclipse is basically 100% correct about this. I think the issue is contextual enough and will be interpreted in enough different ways that the results are not actually useful.

      I am worried I am still around...I am sometimes a deeply haunted and most likely deluded person, worrying I have wounded existence profoundly, afraid I caused Donald Trump (even though I  voted against him), Covid, and recent spates of anti-asian discrimination in America...you don't have to read the Gene Wolfe books. But you might enjoy them, and I don't recommend against it.

      And it was nice to see you around of course.

  6. Literally what are you saying? What does it mean to get rid of gender and race politics? The idea that the Democratic party is even a little anti-white or anti-capitalism is insane. The idea that their base is anti-white and anti-capitalism (which also sort of isn't true) though implies that they should probably become more anti-white and more anti-capitalist. What do you mean about the moral high ground and talking down to people? It's baffling that you look at American politics and think that it's a case of specifically the Democratic party (or I guess progressives) talking down to people, and it's even more baffling that you think people on the coast have absolute contempt for people from middle america. What I think you mean is that wealthy people from the coast have contempt for poor people from middle america, but that's mostly because of the class dynamics. I'd go on, but you're really not explaining what you mean very well at all.
  7. Who do progressives turn off that they need to win elections? The Democrats should care about the "white working class" in the same sense they should care about the working class in general. Obviously, they don't give a shit about them because they're a center right party, but the more you care about the working class, the more left wing you are, almost by default. Not sure how you're putting these things at odds with each other. And yeah, as Phoenix pointed out, the funniest fucking thing in the world is "yeah I know I'm absolutely your political opponent, but trust me, I'm giving you some advice from the bottom of my heart on how to win. here's the trick, just do the things I want".

  9. I mean, even then it's not really that much more turbulent than the real world we live in, and aside from the risky aspects of war, much of the rest of your life would be pretty good. Plus you're generally going to be free from most of the institutional and structural violence and oppression most real/fictional settings would saddle you with.
  10. most fictional worlds are really shitty and much worse than our own for most people in most ways. one world which is not is Star Trek, but that's in the OPs "do not want" list, so i have no idea what is going on. but basically, yeah, i want to live in the semi-utopia, just being me or a regular person. why wouldn't you?
