Morality of Morphile

So i thought to make this after the recent dumpster fire thread starring morphile.

How moral is this gallant hero who fought a entire flock of duck liberals and did not falter?

He seems authentic & doesn't buckle to a dogpile.

I'd have liked to have liked to hear his thoughts on my argument outside of that first reply tho. I quit following the thread once the conversation between me & him ended.

While a lot of people might question his overall integrity, he demonstrates that people can hold offensive opinions about issues while also being completely respectable in conversation & disagreement. I don't think I've ever seen him talk shit.

Further I don't know if this thread is very appropriate given the current thread that's skirting dumpsterfire territory over this very subject matter. That's about all the handwringing I'm going to do here.

First off, I'll argue with you over calling those asses "liberals". The proper term is "progressive", though they're bleeding into the neoliberals, who are basically welfare-accepting Lolbertarians at this point, as their movement starts disintegrating under the strain of contradictory ideology and purity spiraling. The TERF is a lonely being, indeed, reviled by the intersectional monolith with the sadly-real power to declare one non-progressive and despising the right wing in turn. And retaining the view of moderate liberals as universally right-wing, even if they're Tim Pool.

Regarding my morality, I try to hold positions based on information. The problem with me debating progressives quickly becomes their shoddy citations or lack of them. I refuse to take the word of a debate opponent as innately true, because we hold opposed opinions, and the current political climate is devastatingly hyperpartisan. I occasionally engage their statistics, poke at unstated details their citations imply and point out flaws in using those statistics for their argument, while they tend to just flat-out ignore mine. Seriously, I had an article I linked three times that got completely ignored.

Also, I fully admit a large chunk of my politeness under fire of bigotry accusations comes from being infracted on SV for blowing up in a PM on someone who unironically used the white privilege argument while simultaneously saying race realism is horseshit. It's the hypocrisy that set me off, really. I contemplated jumping into their art thread to render them deeply uncomfortable with my mere presence while acting entirely civil, but I couldn't come up with any critique of the art they made. Was ultimately just too bland and basic to get any critique going.

Although I may disagree with Morphile on some things (and some of his actions which bug me), the idea that FiC needed a purge of people who believed in political beliefs which were not aligned to another group of people pretty disturbing.
How about now that he’s declared support for rape, torture and murder of his political opponents, and their families, children included?

I did not declare support for it, I accept it as a consequence of something I feel was a net positive. In other words, less bad than the alternative, which has all precidence point towards being considerably worse off than Pinochet's Chile (modern example: Venezuela), with vastly worse recovery conditions. If you're referring to the minimum atrocity threshold for Pinochet's situation, that is solely familial imprisonment. Still a form of familial punishment, but nothing worth calling torture.

So my man's, are you suggesting it is okay for people who have committed zero crime to be imprisoned due to the actions and crimes of somebody else?


Also just please clarify the minimum atrocity level you settle for. I myself have a maximum atrocity level meaning there are some atrocities I will never commit

When it's a society/economy-destroying movement that's making progress on its destructive takeover, yes. Very key that we're on the same page about the widespread destruction qualifier. Socialism and Anarchism are two examples of types of movement with a track record indicating such threat status.

So where do you stop? Say you lock up a million people because of massive unrest. How many more would you do if the problem never goes away?

Infracted for advocating familial punishment as a way to keep public order, IIRC. Not the Pinochet stuff. Really need to get the utterly empathy-lacking statements under control.
So given this statement and his history, can we fairly call morphile socio/psycho -pathic? Lack of empathy and all.
