Sargon of Akkad thread

Which is a legitimate concern to many people, regardless of the consequences. Have you heard of single-issue voters?
I don’t think highly of them. And Britain’s likely to wind up with even less sovreignty after Brexit because it will be in such a weak position for trade deals that it will be everybody’s bitch.

I don't care about brexit, I'm not going to debate brexit. The only commentary I have for brexit is about stupid beauracracy.

It sounds like you dropped Sargon specifically because of a single issue?? Regardless, my position has always been the case for charity in conversation. Whether or not you're a single issue voter, you have to realize that some people only pay attention to politics at all because of single issues. It's a tall order to expect people to have a reasoned opinion about everything that might bring an person to cast a vote. If you want to debate a brexiteer, it shouldn't behoove you to understand their perspective and give them a good answer before being a contemptible internet churl and call them idiots.

No, I said that’s the point where he went off the rails. The moment in time where he began a downward slide until I left.

Said individuals don't understand what they want is in fact A return to being king shit of an empire that is an impossible dream built on the deaths of millions of their children in wars of foreign conquest.
As what they want is bad for everyone including themselves, responsible people shouldn't cater too them and should call such people out for the imbeciles they are, in as embarrassing and educational manner as possible.

Single issue voters are poor citizens and a net drain on societal stability(needs met, people happy)

No offense Rabe but I'm going to listen to their opinion rather than your caricature of their opinion. Thanks.
None taken if all pork chops were prefect we wouldn't have any hot dogs.
My problem stems with the fact they can define the problem they have without using the word they don't understand (sovereignty). When what they want functionally is the ability to break their word(Soverignty is abilty to give that word) without consequence and that requires dictatorial power of unilateral force

You get a like just for that.

how much sargon content have you actually watched be honest.
I have actually watched a good handful of his videos, but those were mostly truly humorous stuff like black hitler and that one crazy gal that commented there was a conspiracy to kill lgbtq+ people because a handful of lgbtq+ characters died across a multitude of series within that year.

He's nowhere as fun nowadays, though. And this is aggravated by the fact he's boneheadedly insistent in being both wrong and ignorant of a multitude of facts.

My opinion on Sargon is that while I disagree with him on many issues I still find him an interesting individual and a valuable perspective to hear out. He's reasoned out the philosophical underpinning of his believes far more thoroughly then most people ever attempt so when he does give his opinion I can always see why he thinks that way.

I am frustrated with him from time to time for his refusal to put the practical consequences above his principles (the inevitable restart of the troubles for muh sovereignty is a big one), but it's always a respectful disagreement. In that way my relationship with him is like the one I have with libertarians and anarcho-capitalists, they're respectable, if impractical.

As someone almost sucked in by his bullshit, he can take his cultural marxist, racist, sexist bullshit and shove it up his ass.

Screw him, screw his "cultural marxism" bullshit theories and alt-right propaganda shit, his Islamaphobia, his anti-feminism and calling anyone with remotely concerned about feminist issues a "sjw" and more to the point I just don't like him.

For reference I was a fan during my brief and much lamented "almost alt-right" phase, of which you may find cursory evidence on spacebattles.

As an additional side effect of watching his videos, I propelled myself so far to the left I hit socialism.

Yeah, it’s reached the point where if anyone says that Cultural Marxism is a real thing, you can pretty much discard anything they have to say about politics or culture.
