Re: The woes of Italy

No, never fail. Populism means promising popular policies regardless whether it is good for the people. Who decides what is "good" for the people? Intellectualy superior people like you?... :D That's why the wise Greeks decided that people would be chosen for office by lottery, and could only stay ...

Re: The Trump-Fatty Kim summit in Singapore

Having a reliable picture of North Korea is not easy. It's actually pretty easy to see the accounts from people who have escaped from there. But you've long since proven capable of ignoring anything that doesn't support an anti-American narrative and believing anything that does, no matter how gull...

Re: The Future of the World

The future of the world isn't in globalism, it's in a self conscious technological meta state based on meritocracy.

Re: Discrimination against Asians in University admissions

Re: What's happening in Canada

Thanks for that post, doc. https://twitter.com/DPRK_News/status/1006275675454443520 "Disturbingly" polite? :?: :?: :?: Why disturbingly ? Apparently, in North Korea they could not imagine anyone being good mannered for any reason except as a covering mask for guile. You only exude politeness when y...
