Yeah,  BUT!  (He said that Germans are proud to be German).

And that's a big no no.

(((They))) will not like this one.

Which is something they will take up with one another.  End of story.

It's pathological altruism and it'll bite us in the ass.

It's certainly not genuine altruism. It's altruism for show aka virtue signalling. This is why they can go on all day about womans and gays rights but in the same breath advocate for the spread of islam. It's a self defeating horse and pony show.

Thanks!  I was hoping there was a term for that.  It's astonishing to watch; I'm not sure slapping a label on it makes it any less remarkable.

My friend is an atheist, a scientist, and something of a rebel in his field.  I am surprised he would go in for any kind of herd behavior.

Why are American liberals so fanatically emotionally involved with Brexit? Aside from financial ramifications why do they care so much? You have to be stupid not to see the financial possibilities which okay, American liberals ding ding. But even still, I didn't even really care one way or the other and I'm not sure why Americans should or would? What is this obsession with globalization my generation has?

(((They))) must protect their troughs.

Let's say I buy into a Jewish conspiracy. Why did the British economy regain relative stability within 24 hours if (((they))) were as powerful and out to get Britain as you say (((they))) are? Kind of a shitty deal as all (((they))) did was help smart goyum make money before the economy steadied itself.

Because a fundamental point of progressiveism is rule by the expert.  This belief continues even though more than 100-years of "experiments" ,as they put it, have shown nothing but failure.

It, like most of the ideology it stems from, appeals to those who want and or need to feel superior to others for one reason or another. Smart people certainly aren't immune from it. Problem is it merely signals the hypothetical possession of a virtue. It doesn't guarantee the person actually holds the virtue much less act on it in reality. We've got people so fixated on appearing to be good (thanks social media) they've forgotten to step away and actually be good. And most lines of thinking that lead to truly altruistic behavior aren't permitted by politically correct groupthink.

Ever heard of the Dunning-Kruger effect?
http://cognitivebiases.com/the-dunning%E2%80%93kruger-effect/
"The Dunningâ€"Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which an unskilled person makes poor decisions and arrives at erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes."

Is the "rebel" the Swedish cuck you were telling us about?  Or is it another person?

I sure hope the "rebel" is another person.

To be fair, a number of our fellows were waving Union Jacks yesterday.  I doubt very much any of them could make it through Land of Hope and Glory.  It's politics as sport and their team lost at home.
