Quote from: VoteQuimby on June 24, 2016, 07:13:55 PMWhy 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?
Quote from: K_Dubb on June 24, 2016, 07:35:18 PMNah, same dude. Regularly rails against postmodernism and relativism in academia. That's why it's so surprising.
Quote from: TheMan WhoFell ToEarth on June 24, 2016, 07:39:11 PMBecause they are dogmatic religious zealots and their church is collapsing. Brexit is one of the biggest slaps in the face their marxist ideology has ever received. They view their opponents as being 'literally worse than Hitler' and those opponents are gaining serious traction.Also see my previous post.
Quote from: TheMan WhoFell ToEarth on June 24, 2016, 07:28:46 PMIt, 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."

Quote from: starrmtn001 on June 24, 2016, 07:51:12 PMyou're right! Sometimes it's more fun to watch folks, over-react to folks, who are watching folks react to the folks who are acting out. Or something like that.

Quote from: norland2424 on June 24, 2016, 07:53:42 PMLol im not a leftist but i do think most of the reason why they are paying so much attention to brexist is solely since its trending right now, a week from now most people will have forgotten about it already.
Quote from: Walks_At_Night on June 24, 2016, 07:53:04 PMK_Dubb, I imagine you find all of the doom and gloom talk over the Brexit at least slightly amusing. "Without the EU the UK is doomed........ It is the end for Britain...... Blah Blah Blah".Last time I checked Norway wasn't in the EU and as far as I know the people there aren't eatingAlpo right? Oslo looks pretty darn nice to me!
Quote from: TheMan WhoFell ToEarth on June 24, 2016, 07:58:46 PMWTF???!!! indeed. Maybe you should read up on the term 'SJW'.
Quote from: K_Dubb on June 24, 2016, 08:00:33 PMHa, yeah Norway is a special case. They've historically been insular, squint-eyed and mean in a peasant way and the oil money has made them more so. My cousin way up north posts anti-Muslim diatribes regularly. I doubt he's even seen one.Kind of why I was asking about Swedes since I know a few of them, too, and they're much more integrated.
Quote from: norland2424 on June 24, 2016, 08:01:32 PMIm 30 yearsold, i know what it means, my point is this isn't really that important to younger Americans, by Monday they will have moved on.

Quote from: Dr. MD MD on June 24, 2016, 08:23:31 PMThe mainstream media is trying to frame this as a return to ethnic nationalism (i.e.,Nazis) that will cause war and strife between nations, rather than people seeing through what it has always really been: the control of Europe by international bankers and ultimately, the one percenters. Don't fall for it!
