    Compromise Has Died in the US Electorate

    I disagree. There were always people who were opposed to slavery, even at the founding of the USA, but many of the founding fathers were slave owners as is well documented. By the time the of the civil war, abolitionism had become more and more widespread - slavery and the slave trade had been...

    Politics and Religious Fundamentalism

    Nigeria for one. And there it was definitely driven by the Anglican Church, which in that country is very fundamentalist.

    Politics and Religious Fundamentalism

    Google "Dominionism" There are several US Republican politicians who are Dominionist Christians. Ted Cruz is one. Rand Paul (yes Rand Paul, for a libertarian he's very much supportive of theocracy). Roy Moore. Kansas governor Sam Brownback is another, and there are many more. They are acolytes...

    North Korea (Superthread)

    Why is it that Donald Trump wants an agreement with North Korea but wants to tear up the one with Iran? Kim would be mad to give up his weapons. He might concede his long range ballistic missile program but nothing more. He's not going to end up on the end of a rope like Saddam or with a...

    Compromise Has Died in the US Electorate

    It's very disturbing how entrenched the two sides are there now. I don't see how they can ever come back together. It's like they're speaking two completely different languages.

    How to engage in political discourse on Army.ca

    I think that is a really good policy and I hope it catches on. If I may, could you also ban provocative political statements and quotations that some people have as mottoes under their avatars?

    Van attack in Toronto [Merged]

    To me the only difference is he kept his grievance to himself and we'll never know what it was. There must have been something that caused him to mass murder and whatever it was, like the others, it didn't justify the carnage. I guess what I'm trying to say is that these incidents are all just...

    Van attack in Toronto [Merged]

    Isn't the internet wonderful? Now these angry bitter little men who basically can't get laid (incel) can find likeminded losers and together they can plot their revenge, instead of working on being a person somebody might want to have a relationship with. These people have a role model and...

    But Mexico was supposed to pay for that wall. That was the election promise, not I'll make the taxpayers pay for 3100 km long wall. Jesus.

    Gun Control: US and Global

    Not  a comment on your post itself, but I was amused by the file name of the photo you posted which says it's Jesse Owens at the 1936 Olympics. It's actually John Carlos and Tommie Smith at (I believe) the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Trivia note: John Carlos played briefly for the Mtl Alouettes as a...
