The whole Brexit process blew my mind tbh. The English always had this stereotype about them being educated and intelligent and there they were, blindly voting for a drastic step that was purely based on the emotional reasoning of 'we r big, strong, proud nation, we don't need no other countries!!!' with no consideration of the potential economical consequences. Like a British sitcom came to life or something, except it was reality

Two issues:

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.

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.

I’m not shocked only because Japan is not a peaceful country they are just really good at mass producing propaganda. I doubt any woman living in Japan feels safe riding the train. I bet they all have to do a little prayer before going on hoping no gross Scrote assaults them or stalks them. Also just a few years ago a man set fire to the Kyoto animation building one of the biggest anime studios. Killing majority women in the most terrifying way possible. Like it’s not peaceful at all over there. Or how about the dude that brandished a knife and killed children in school!? Or the other guy who brandished a knife and killed 19 disabled people. No country is peaceful in my opinion. Especially not one that sided with The nazis lol. Japan has a true mental illness problem that they try to keep under wraps but they can’t keep it under wraps for long. They have horrible mental health care and it’s why all their mentally ill Scrote are able to do shit like this so easily.(namefag)

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.

Yeah it's always like that, they have that weird "things sucks and we wish we could change that and we could but we also can't, sorry lol" mentality. It's like companies making their employees work overtime very often just because it gives a good impression so instead of outlawing working above a specific number of hours per day and per week and enforcing that strictly with huge fines for companies, the government just decided to create the "premium friday" thing a few years ago so employees can leave their offices a few hours early on Fridays specifically to go shopping and boost the economy a little. So it's not even just about women, it's everything that's equally strange.

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 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.”

painting all homeless men as "pedos" is just a way for you to justify your demonization of the homeless. there are shit tons of pedos with money and family and assets, probably more than even the homeless population. i was twice attempted to be abducted as a child, both times by normal men in their 20s with nice cars, seemed normal and actually fairly attractive. pedos come in all shapes and have and do not have.

And there were even bombs thrown in two bookstores in California, who sold that book and an American community newspaper was also firebombed. Also in the UK several bombs attack happened. In Islamabad six protesters were killed in an attack on the American Cultural Center. And 1/3 of the book stores in the US were too afraid to sell the book and it was banned in several (even non-Muslim) countries. I did not even write everything down but the wikipedia page is honestly scary, that something like this is possible.

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?

What's awful about these sorts of incidents too is once you fall over, that's it.

Asides from Hillsborough which is probably the most known incident, there was a mass crush on a bridge on Cambodia several years ago where 300+ died.

Not retardation, it’s lots of crowded people going one direction, either path gets narrower or more people join/push and suddenly you can’t move a limb and you’re at the mercy of the whole crowds movement like an ocean. Then people start passing out and falling and it gets worse, it’s not something you can avoid once it gets bad enough to happen. And if people in the back are trying to get out it only makes it worse crushing everyone stuck further in. Even at small concerts I’ve been in situations where some people in the back try to shove forward selfishly and it ends up pushing everyone together to the point of pain and restriction so I’d imagine a crowd like that could easily cause severe damage to the chest when you are literally unable to breathe.

The reason why there was no proper crowd control (like in Shibuya's Halloween) is because the new anti-feminist populist president refuses to lead from Blue House and instead stays in Itaewon.

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.

> 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

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.

You're not wrong, but outside parties (EU or US) tipping the balance too far in the favor of Ukraine motivates Ukraine against seeking a peace settlement and to see a realistic solution that involves regaining the Donbas republics and (particularly) Crimea, the latter especially is an absolute no-go for Russia and serious danger lies there if Ukraine sees a realistic possibility of achieving that goal and is encouraged towards it by allies.

What is the guarantee that they'll grab Crimea now and honor the peace treaty? What would stop them from waiting a few years and doing the same thing over again, maybe with a bit more of Ukraine, maybe another EE country. There was a peace settlement in 2015 and look where we are now. It's hard to not look back at Nazi Germany coming to power in the '30; they were taking territories left and right and western countries were just allowing that in hopes it will satiate Hitler and he will not wage war on them; it's not impossible that this situation could play out similarly, very likely for all former USSR countries. For everyone's safety, Russia has to be shown they can't just do whatever they want, Ukraine should receive all the support possible and keep their territories.

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.

So you agree with anon saying that Ukraine should be pushed into seeking peace settlement and Russia should be given Crimea and Donbas but you also agree with me saying that Russia will not respect any peace agreements and continue their expansion further into other former USSR territories?

She's probably experiencing survivor's guilt and is trying to find a reason for why she survived when all of her friends didn't. To some people, not dying means you haven't served your "purpose" yet. Let's have some compassion and think a little, nonna.

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.

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.
