First, democracy doesn't work in the first place as too many people vote without properly understanding what they are voting for. Even Socrates knew this. People will always vote stupidly, regardless of the country.
Second, for the Brexit vote specifically, there was a lot of voter manipulation by Cambridge Analytica and such like, and even then, the result was very close. Gibraltar and Scotland both voted to stay but got dragged out by England. The Brexit promises used to persuade the voters were never intended to kept and there is no organisation to hold them accountable. Look up the NHS bus for a perfect example. It's unlikely that had the vote been fair that the UK would have voted to leave, even accounting for stupid voters.
Sadly both of these will only become more common in the future.

My point is that people do care a lot - unless it's japan because somehow half of the world is brainwashed into thinking they're a country of angels
That just shows this again
Ntayrt but it is true that political assassins get put in history books while the mass shooters just all blend together, even the isis ones that get progressively worse. I hope the 4chan autist moids who lurk here will popularize killing their actual enemies (politicians and elites) and stop killing random innocents who have nothing to do with their angry manifestos.I get so angry thinking of that recent NY shooting where some dumb kid went and shot a bunch of elderly black people. His reason? The "white genocide". How does killing a handful to a dozen of people correct the exponential population growth of AFRICA, a continent where black people are reproducing? I wish they realized how pointless this is and got over their egos and white supremacy. I hate how stupid they are. It brings me back to Columbine where the shooters claimed to be bullied by jocks and then did the majority of killing in the fucking LIBRARY of all places. They even confronted a former bully of theirs in that library but then LET HIM GO before taunting and viciously killing a bunch of kids that they'd never met before.
These moids don't even stand for their 'values' given how easily their logic behind attacks falls apart imo, they just want to kill people to feel powerful in the moment and it's really that sad. Hell they probably have considered taking out evil Nancy Pelosi or AOC (they always despise the female politicians) but they know that they'd be taken into custody faster and it would ruin the length of time they have to feel big and powerful over other people.
Sorry for sperg.
Because sometimes the surviving victims
do not get compensated in any way or the country the people of which committed the atrocities pretend nothing happened or don't believe the victims
. Woman from video got her life ruined and she didn't even get an acknowledgement or an apology from the Japanese government. She said that even if she was given monetary compensation, she would use that money to help kids who want to study because she herself wasn't given the chance to do so and she's too old now anyway.
Fyi, there are mentions of suicide and rape in the video

Anon is right when she says Japan is peaceful if she's talking about political and diplomatic stuff, but you're correct when talking about Japanese people's daily life. I felt infinitely safer in Tokyo than in my country when I lived there but that's probably because I developed habits to protect myself in case anything happens to them and the police barely gives a shit I'm still thinking about the police box right next to a soapland in Shibuya
, while Japanese women are taught to stfu and not embarrass themselves in public when anything happens to them so there's that too. For example I made sure to live only with female housemates.
The only reason they HAVE to have those woman-only trains is because sexual harassment is so commonplace in Japan. How the fuck do you try to turn that into a positive? "Yeah women literally can not ride the train with japanese moids without being dry-humped, BUT AT LEAST THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT!" How about teaching their fucking moids not to touch women?
The only reason Japan is considered "safe" is because crime, especially sex-crime is ridiculously underreported. It actually happens at an extremely high rate, especially exploitation of children/school girl prostitution etc, but nobody talks about it because of how ass backwards their shitty society is.
a positive. any response to that stuff other than lol get a restraining order which psychos will violate anyway is a positive. it's not a solution
but it's great that they actually have shit like that.

A bit of an update on the assassination. According to NHK, the gunman had a grudge against a "certain organization" but that organization wasn't named until recently. I've seen a twitter thread here and there talking about how it is most likely the Unification Church, where the gunman's mother was a member and where she donated an insane amount of money to the point of bankruptcy, and one article says the money donated was meant for the gunman's university tuition (and thus he had to drop out early). Abe/the LDP had ties to the church. Japanese media seems to keep saying it wasn't politically motivated and have been skirting around the naming the church until recently.
I can't read most of the articles so I'm just summarizing some of the main points made from this thread I found. Here it is for others who are interested/can read moonspeak. He also speaks a bit about the LDP/Unification Church ties. https://twitter.com/mrjeffu/status/1546481982653497345

More on church ties and here's the article linked at the end. Abe's grandfather, Nobusuke Kichi was introduced to the church's leader (Sun Myung Moon) and they hit it off because they were both anti-communist, but it doesn't elaborate on the circumstances of why they were introduced to each other.https://shingetsunewsagency.com/2022/07/10/the-crime-that-killed-shinzo-abe/>A research paper published in 2001 by Richard Samuels, however, states that the Unification Church “built its Japan headquarters on land in Tokyo once owned by Kishi. By the early 1970s, a number of LDP politicians were using Unification Church members as campaign workers. While the politicians were required to pledge to visit the Church’s headquarters in Korea and receive Reverend Moon’s lectures on theology, it did not matter whether they were members of the Church. Actual Church members– so-called “Moonies”– were sent by the Federation to serve without compensation as industrious and highly valued campaign workers. In return, for many years the Church enjoyed protection from prosecution by Japanese authorities for their often fraudulent and aggressive sales and conversion tactics. Not incidentally, by the 1980s, Japan reportedly provided some four-fifths of Unification Church revenues worldwide.”>He adds that Shintaro Abe, Kishi’s son-in-law and Shinzo Abe’s father, “depended upon ‘Moonies’ in his election campaigns.”

i saw that china was trending on social media and i clicked and these were the types of posts.
>If Pelosi visits Taiwan , then war is a possibility
China has issued a warning, using the phrase"不会坐视不管" Meaning "We will not sit idly by" The same warning was issued at the Americans in 1950 when they crossed the 38th parallel, resulting in China joining the Korean War
Whats going on.
china is all bark and no bite, there's even a russian proverb for it "china's final warning"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China%27s_final_warning#:~:text=%22China's%20final%20warning%22%20

Wtf is wrong with these people I swear. Nothing better to do. homeless tents near schools is unsafe, they take up the entire fucking sidewalk, there's needles everywhere on the ground, feces, piss, garbage. Literal junkies and psychos who really should be sent to some kind of facility.
File: 1660074408882.png (336.85 KB, 334x885, virus.png)
Not this shit again
They probably weren't sent to facilities or anywhere though. That's the problem. Homeless people have to live somewhere and if people don't like it they should help the homeless voluntarily leave through work or treatment (and section the ones too unwell to make the choice).
People who kids have chosen to bring a new person into the world instead of helping those who already exist. I don't have any sympathy for them complaining about the homeless. They knew homeless existed in their area when they decided to have a kid.
Exactly. You also have to consider that from a homeless person's perspective, living near a school is probably one of the safer areas to be.
Very few people want to voluntarily be homeless. I don't understand why people don't get this. Stop punishing them for trying to live.
“Give homeless people a place to live” and “don’t let homeless encampments be built near schools” are not mutually exclusive ideas, nonnie

kinda necro but i wonder how this makes politicians feel.
because the assassination basically being a success for the assassin makes me think that this will also probably set an example to other people. before politicians could have been lulled into thinking that the crazies seeking revenge will just continue shooting up shopping centers and elementary schools but now we all can see that targeting politicians is what can actually make your personal revenge campaigns successful. so i guess there might be more attempted assassinations of politicians in the future?

This pic is disturbing as it shows bodies, so spoiler. I found it on twitter.
She looks like she's in so much pain… God, I can't imagine the amount of trauma everyone who survives this tragedy will have to deal with. Imagine witnessing a person squeezed next to you suffering and maybe even dying, and you cannot do anything about it.
And on top of everything there are reports that there are still people in this district partying as if nothing happened, fully aware because they clearly see the ambulanceshttps://twitter.com/shekfw/status/1586373768565256193
there were so many ambulances with sirens going off… it'd be hard to not notice imo
and there's already propaganda going around saying drugs caused this, that people were flocking to drug laced candy (https://en.yna.co.kr/view/AEN20221030000258315
) or rumors of a celeb. Not surprised the korean government would try to shift blame somewhere else considering how stupid they look for not closing the streets like Tokyo does for Shibuya on Halloween. If there's evidence that the mayor had early warnings/knowledge of overcrowding i hope he gets legally fucked before he has the chance of publicly blaming foreigners and/or drugs.
Idk, i wouldnt be so hard with the insane comments. This is korea's biggest tragedy since the Sewol Ferry, people are going to be very, very trigged. Especially with those videos people dying with electronic music in the background, retards taking selfies with corpses, or people dancing in the street preventing the ambulance from arriving, ect. Especially since it was avoidable or at least predictable, itaewon is a very old city with only 22k population, where a 100k crowd was going to fit? And this nightmare is not over. There is possibly missing bodies to identify, people agonizing in hospitals, people who are now permanently injured or disabled, and the massive ptsd that the survivors will develop.
this is why i hate zoomers. this is a sad and serious situation. Wtf is this music..>>1391220
This video really gives insight to how tight the crowd was. That guy who was basically being held by the people around him, head sideways is actually haunting.
I saw a lot of horrible religious people saying this is halloween's fault and the devil's fault. Like, are you seriously. 150+ people just died. it isnt halloween's fault. It's the Seoul government being absolutely incompetent. Look at the Sewol ferry tragedy.
Religious people looking this tragedy as some kind of gain for jesus fuckers make me sick.
>>1391708> itaewon is a very old city with only 22k population, where a 100k crowd was going to fit?
What? Where are you getting your information from? Itaewon is a street in Seoul. It is known its crazy nightlife and a big number of clubs. It’s not an actual city. Every year about 100,000-200,000 people come to Itaewon to celebrate Halloween. This year, not even the max amount of people came, there were more people in the previous years. It was the police who weren’t prepared this year for some reason, which you can see from the countless videos where they appear to be stressed af b/c there’s clearly a shortage of workers. When the additional crews arrived, it was too late as people were already dying.
It is 100% the Korean governments’ fault. Ironically, they are the ones treating this as an “accident” instead of a tragedy which it really is. Neither the president nor the mayor of Seoul have apologized for shitty organization. I won’t be surprised if Yoon gets impeached in the end b/c Koreans are getting really tired of his shit.
short girl survived, you see her at 59:26 in this video, after people helped pull people up onto the stairs
this video is really fucked up though, the screams are almost unbearable..
>Turkish police have arrested 46 people over the explosion in central Istanbul that left at least six people dead and 81 others wounded, Istanbul police have said.
>Justice minister Bekir Bozdag told A Haber television later on Sunday that a woman was seen sitting on one of the benches on Istiklal Avenue for more than 40 minutes.
>The explosion occurred just minutes after she got up, he said.
>“There are two possibilities,” he told A Haber. “There’s either a mechanism placed in this bag and it explodes, or someone remotely explodes [it]”.
>Al Jazeera has obtained pictures of the woman suspected to be behind the bombing.
>In initial questioning, the woman said she was trained by Kurdish militants in Syria and entered Turkey through northwest Syria’s Afrin region, the police said.
>Television news reports also showed images of a person, who appeared to be a woman, leaving a package below a raised flower bed on Istiklal, which has a tramline running the length of the street.
>Al Jazeera’s Koseoglu said two more Syrian nationals were involved in the attack, according to security sources.

missile from russia landed in poland killed 2.
possibilities:> stray Russian missile targeting Lviv, which is a straight shot to the Polish border> stray Ukranian anti-air missile targeting such a Russian missile (both sides have similar Soviet weapons systems)> deliberate Russian antagonism towards Poland masked as a mistake, i.e. brinksmanship> deliberate Ukranian false flag to get NATO aid
possible NATO responses> ww3, not likely for a pair of farmers> escalation of military aid to Ukraine with more lethal weapons, dangerous as it could encourage Ukraine to attack Russian territory, etc. leading to escalation in another way> one surgical strike at a Russian target as retaliation> stern diplomatic words
I think a combination of the last 2 is best. giving more and more powerful military tech to the Ukraine may help achieve short-term goals but is dangerous and destabilizing in the long run. either way, this is going to escalate things even though just a day or 2 ago the news cycle was talking about peace options (although ukraine's proposed conditions were obvious nonstarters for russia)
Reports are saying that it's from an S-300 air defense missile system. The S-300 was first produced in the 70s in the USSR and it's used by both Russia and Ukraine, although Russia mostly uses the more modern S-400 and S-500 which Ukraine doesn't have. The S-300 has a range of 150km which would make it unlikely to be Russian because how could a Russian air defense missile be launched within 150km of the Polish border?
The missiles Russia uses to attack Ukraine are guided Kinzhal and Kalibr missiles along with Geranium and Lancet drones.
I agree with this anon>>1411387
They got Crimea once and had "DNR" under control, too, there was basically no reaction except for some sanctions, and after 8 years they also want all of the Eastern and Southern Ukraine and, of course, Kyiv (at least to plant a pro-Russian puppet there). The same happened before, and not even once: Moldova, Chechnya, Georgia… And Russia simply cannot be trusted, at all. They lie and they violate agreements. If the conflict gets frozen, the attacks will start again once they're ready. Their army is in a very poor condition right now and loses daily, so surely they want to buy some time. They haven't changed their rhetorics at all, they still don't regard Ukraine as an independent state, they still "protect" Russian-speaking people (which they consider Russians) and fight "ukrainism", "nazism", and, lately, satanism as well. And after all the shit they've done there simply can't be no compromises.

Census shows Christianity now a minority faith in the uk, as politicians call for faith leaders to be removed from parliament. I wish I could support this as a positive for women, but you just know removing a Christian figure would result in needing another religious replacement as the uk needs to celebrate how diverse it is uwu
Strange thinking about it, it really is true as I'm UKfag and don't know any Christians or even any people who go to church anymore. We are not religious at all anymore unless you count Islam over here. It's always wild when I look at America and realise how religious they are over there in comparison.>religious replacement as the uk
I suggest the inclusive diverse lgbtqia+ icon of peace Prophet Muhammad
I think people would be more triggered
about the fact that there was a small increase in muslims in the country and the same people crying are the ones who don't go to church. I wonder how catholicism is doing in particular, it has a bigger reach beyond white british elderly people and I think that's probably what's keeping it somewhat strong. I've also known of numerous converts to catholicism from different branches of christianity and even knew some former muslims who converted to it.

Yeah it's like a fundamentalist country to me. I don't know any religious people who were born here either. Even those that immigrate tend to lose faith at some point and the eastern part of the country is even blatantly anti-religious.
Anyway I think it's always good when less religious people are allowed to have any influence on politics. Even right-wingers have to debate stuff and come up with excuses to shill their ideas but caths just say something must persist simply because it was a law before, or "cultural" or because some old book that rips off another story said so.
