I should likely just stand back and let you two prove the point.

I can agree that people who have been subjected to a lifetime of propaganda need more than one exposure to new ideas, but it isn't just the red-state (or blue-state) that features a propaganda system that leaves one values locked.  For many, it takes a lot more than a few exposures to get an open mind.  (I assume you two have lost count?)  To a large degree, you are saying the same thing about each other, and it is greatly true.  The problem is real, and nobody has a wide enough vision and large enough group resolve to solve it.

As to the immediate problem, welfare can do only so much when the minimum wage prevents a living wage.  I'd like to see welfare as an emergency measure to hold somebody over a troubled time once, but it is being turned into a way of life by a system that promotes more profits for the already wealthy.  These are parts of the same problem.  Of course, it is easy for the already wealthy to claim it isn't their problem.

And that leads back to a political system where those who can buy the best lawyers, lobbyists, media people and politicians make the rules.  That will take a lot of people getting angry to fix.  The questions include how many, how soon, and how angry.

We shall now return to our abstract philosophical discussion of maybe True Believers needing to see the key problem as more important than the value of human life.

But people in central and southeastern Europe generally did not need long to reject Marxism-Leninism, a system that inundates people with propaganda.

The gig economy ensures that people will go from ill-paid work to poverty and back to ill-paid work frequently. Steady employment is no longer an objective of our economic order. Going from one sort of work to another (let us say from resort work to agricultural work to construction) is possible, but the sort of person who can do that would be a highly-desirable long-term employee in many places due to flexibility of abilities and of physical fitness. If there were steady work.

I’d like to have a thing to watch for that lets one pick out groups like the Stalinists, NSGHP, ISIS or other clearly dark True Believers.  It is easy to note that the dark True Believers aren’t the only ones lacking a open mind or a theory on how things work.  We can go around in tight circles.

What are significant about the people of central and southeastern Europe?  They have the Catholic background?  That’s as elaborate an indoctrinate system roughly as the Stalinists.  There are complementary political systems to go with it.  Or can the critical difference be found in the spiral of violence.  Were they just close enough to a solution that the idea of being violent is more necessary that the value of life did not go critical?  There is also not that much ground between central Europe and the territory of NSGHP and the Stalinists.  There is also a gap between populations that contain a large number of True Believers, enough to dominate politics, and a population truly sharing the perspective.

I also never got another answer.  What is the politically correct way of referring to the NSGHP?  That seems a bit obscure, but it seems some of conservatives are crazy into political correctness and get upset by perceived insults.  I wouldn’t want to hurt people’s feelings.  The NSGHP are so sensitive, you know.  Wink

Decent evaluation.  One of the few positive things about the Trump phenomena is how angry the Republican base is getting and how badly their protest candidate is failing.  The Democrats also failed with their establishment.  We might be ready for a true shift.

If you have nothing worth dying for or killing for you also lack anything worth living for. That is a pitiable state.

Quote:If you want to know who has the least-valid achievements (especially including finding meaning in life) then look for the person who brags about having his $#!+ together. If you want to know who is mishandling his money, then look for the schmuck who wastes money on status symbols.  I prefer living like a food-processing worker and making a middle-class income to making a middle-class living and trying to live like an aristocrat. With the former one can amass some savings and do some really-great things; with the latter one achieves a debt-driven banality.

1. I made no claims as to having my shit together. I merely made a claim as to being able to see through your bullshit quickly. I've seen your type before. While they exist in all the states I've lived they were most numerous in Southern Commiefornia and in Florida. I think it is the lack of bitter winters that thin the herd.
2. I don't have an ostentatious lifestyle either unless you count my pimpmobile from the 1970s which I intentionally bought and tricked out for the express purpose of tricking it out. Car customization is a documented hobby for some people--I'm one.
3. What is and is not a waste of money is in the eye of the beholder. Generally speaking paying for the cable tee-vee is an expense I could live without, however, it is a requirement to keep my mother sedate. Were she not living with us we probably wouldn't have it since no one besides her is interested in a dead medium.

That is such a poor excuse I wouldn't accept it from my 7 year old niece much less a grown ass man. Though it does make me wonder, what is it like to be so pathetic that a prepubescent child outstrips you in personal responsibility.

Quote:If I had known about Asperger's

You don't have Asperger's because that isn't a recognized condition. In short you don't have it because no one does. I also highly doubt you have any spectrum disorder at all.

Quote: when I was young I would have had a very different and much more-rewarding life. If I could get away with Asperger's (and the one good thing about America is that it does reasonably well for people with handicaps) I would probably have a good job, a wife (probably with Asperger's) and children. Adopted, of course. They probably wouldn't look much like us... but at least they would not have the Curse.  People like me are typical fathers of children who end up institutionalized for autism.

You aught to be glad America isn't Kinserland. Were it, you would have likely been sterilized. As for obtaining a wife, well you would need resources to get one of those, which means you'd have to take responsiblity for yourself and actually produce something of value. One universal fact about women is that in the main they look for resources out of a man. Why? Because they want those resources for their eggs which with luck one day become children and children require resources, a lot of them.

Quote:If it takes a welfare state to aid children out of poverty, then so be it.

Except in no welfrare state has welfare alleviated poverty. Rather it merely maintains the poor at a consistently miserable level. We now have three generations, maybe four, which have consistantly lived on welfare and guess what, they're still impoverished.

Quote: I see a cynical solution in poverty in people using welfare to get a sofa, a TV, beer, ice cream, and chips and getting grotesquely obese... and ending up with a coronary. If I must rely upon disability I will make sure to have a dog to walk, food good for me, and something other than the TV. Like Internet access and the desire to seek something really good.

It is really difficult to buy a sofa, tee-vee or beer with most forms of welfare. SNAP can be used on ice cream and chips because those are considered to be food by some. Even then, a large part of the problem with people using programs like SNAP for junk food is a utter lack in culinary training. When you don't know how to cook you have to eat shit from a box. As for me, the only shit in a box that I eat are the MREs in the Hurricane Kit. Though we also eat those when we have to turn them over, the self-life is only like 5 or 6 years.

With proper planning, visiting the local vegetable stands/farmers market and other such places one can eat healthful food on SNAP. Myself I prefer to not have to use that program, but I certainly won't turn down an opportunity to buy groceries on someone's card for cash. But then again, I view the welfare state as mostly there for me to scam as much as possible rather than any ridiculous notion that it is there to "help people". If the goal was to lift people out of poverty then the government would take expressly pro-business and pro-domestic production policies to ensure everyone who could work had at least a minimum level job.

Also I pity your dog. It can't be easy for him to be the brains of the operation.
It really is all mathematics.

Kinser -- you have not been in the therapy sessions that I have been in.

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's, is a developmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.[1] As a milder autism spectrum disorder (ASD), it differs from other ASDs by relatively normal language and intelligence.[4] Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and unusual use of language are common.[5][6] Signs usually begin before two years old and typically last for a person's entire life.[1]

The exact cause of Asperger's is unknown.[1] While it is probably partly inherited, the underlying genetics have not been determined conclusively.[5][7] Environmental factors are also believed to play a role.[1] Brain imaging has not identified a common underlying problem.[5] The diagnosis of Asperger's was removed in the 2013 fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and people with these symptoms are now included within the autism spectrum disorder along with autism and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified.[1][8] It remains within the tenth edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) as of 2015.[4]
[/url]
There is no single treatment, and the effectiveness of particular interventions is supported by only limited data.
[5] Treatment is aimed at improving poor communication skills, obsessive or repetitive routines, and physical clumsiness.[2] Interventions may include social skills training, cognitive behavioral therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, parent training, and medications for associated problems such as mood or anxiety.[2] Most children improve as they grow up, but social and communication difficulties usually persist.[9] Some researchers and people on the autism spectrum have advocated a shift in attitudes toward the view that autism spectrum disorder is a difference, rather than a disease that must be treated or cured.[10][11]

In 2015, Asperger's was estimated to affect 37.2 million people globally.[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger_syndrome#cite_note-GBD2015Pre-3][3] The syndrome is named after the Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger who, in 1944, described children in his practice who lacked nonverbal communication, had limited understanding of others' feelings, and were physically clumsy.[12] The modern conception of Asperger syndrome came into existence in 1981 and went through a period of popularization.[13][14][15] It became a standardized diagnosis in the early 1990s.[16] Many questions and controversies remain about aspects of the disorder.[9] There is doubt about whether it is distinct from high-functioning autism (HFA).[17] Partly because of this, the percentage of people affected is not firmly established.[5]

I would not doubt that PBR has a vested interest in maintaining the welfare state, however, I have seen little evidence of his supposed intellgence.

As for countering a lifetime of exposure to propaganda, I did it.  Of course having been a Marxist-Leninist and a propagandist myself it was far easier for me to detect what is propaganda.

There are a lot fewer female aspies than male aspies, so you'd be unlikely to have a wife who was also an aspie.

Also, Asperger's is a gift, not a curse.  I'm thrilled to have two of three kids who are likely aspies.  Aspies interact fine with other aspies; it's the neurotypicals that are the problem.

From what I have seen and heard, perceived intelligence is not a good predictor of which partisan faction one belongs to, but high intelligence lets one cling harder to whichever perspective. It can be a handicap of sorts if one is looking for the correct world view. The self perceived bright guy can be so certain he seem to himself right to be stubborn. How he looks from outside is a different story.

On the other had, perceiving one's self as being intelligent often compels one to force the other guy to seem unintelligent. Thus, the articulate guy with sometimes good arguments often finds himself in the gutter.

Perceived intelligence is not always a great indicator in politics and world views.

There are good things, like being able to listen to classical music and appreciate counterpoint because I cannot stand the sound volume at a rock concert.  But struggling to get and hold jobs because one muffs job interviews and losing jobs because one responds to little calamities the wrong way isn't so great. In an economic order that shows no mercy such is awful.

But if I knew I would be protected with ADA when I needed it. I would have not made some of the career mistakes that I made. I might have gotten a teaching degree. Paraplegics, quadriplegics, the deaf, and the blind know that they have a proble. Aspergers when I was a young adult had no clue. Back then the people getting attention were those who ended up before the criminal justice system.

That would have been good. Back in my young-adult times the programming jobs had fierce competition awaiting anyone applying.
