    No, of course I do not, Rip. What I do know is that when O.G. libertarian and Austrian economist Walter Block was smeared and libeled as defending slavery by the NYT, he not only did not apologize, he fucking sued their asses without a second's hesitation. This is in contrast to the mushy posts by Even Hafer on Instagram and Twitter once the water got too hot. It seems there was no need to dispute the NYT before a bunch of internet conservatives starting taking issue with it. There was also the blocking of conservative critics of the incident by the Twitter account for BRCC.

    At this point, I'm unlikely to believe anyone who willfully cooperates with those assholes in any capacity. If you don't know they'll fuck you six ways from Sunday and then make it look like your fault, I don't know what to tell you.

You have to get the moron to think he came up with the ideas you're suggesting to him on his own. Books on persuasion are worth reading in this regard. Caldini is the best place to start. In my opinion, his book Pre-Suasion is more valuable than his first book Influence, but they are both very useful.

    I think Greg's observation (which he isn't articulating very well) is that conservatives and evidence-minded people tend to be bad at rhetoric and subtle forms of influence. I believe it stems from our disgust at others people's attempt to manipulate us into self-destructive behavior and a sane desire to just want to be left the fuck alone. It's kinda like being shot at all the time, getting annoyed by it, and refusing to shoot back because you've associated the gun with the guy shooting you. Rhetoric and psychological manipulation are tools that have been effectively used against our interests for decades, and we need to start playing the same game. Yes, they have the megaphone, but we are better and smarter than they are, and I believe we can win if enough of us make the transition from a defensive to offensive mindset.

    Here's something I archived from the Twatter ghetto. If this person is for real, I hope her son has a violent psychotic episode while she's the only one in the room.
    Yes, the libs are much better at manipulating people. Having a strong moral compass is not useful for convincing the the majority of the population in America. Furthermore, the lies have gone on for so long that it is becoming increasingly difficult to convince people that they have been fooled.

    What is to be done at this point? Iím going to keep living my life stubbornly, as always, but Iím done trying to convince people to look at the evidence. It only works for a small portion of the population.

    Reminds me of the Bart and Homer Simpson meme. "The most sickening aspect you've seen so far." Is that worse than tens of thousands of Americans left to be beaten and killed in Afghanistan? And by killed I mean tortured, disfigured, and dismembered before being drug through the streets and hung up from something on public display to rot. If this continues at home and abroad, it may wind up making the toll in blood and treasure from the Civil War look like a gentlemen's disagreement by the end of four years.

    Here's how many have to die to make the military casualties from twenty years look small (for all of the iT's JuSt LiKe ViEtNaM people):

    By comparison, some far less accurate reporting:
    Mortality

    Man, what will Americans NOT put up with so long as Facebook can be scrolled and Pornhub streamed? I only wonder if Diogenes and Socrates would have faired better in these times. Diogenes was, after all, rebuked for masturbating in the public market. "If only my hunger could be satisfied by rubbing my belly." Maybe I should wear a headlamp around town during the day and repeat his lantern escapades? I think I still have the one I used in Afghanistan (Petzl makes good stuff).

    You have obviously formed your opinion on the company...that's fine, to each their own. But using the NEW YORK TIMES to back up your opinion is quite troubling. Do you also use CNN?
    Do you never read the NYT or equivalent?

    Citing the NYT can occasionally make a very compelling argument.
