David Pakman interviews Scott Adams on Donald Trump's "Report Card"

This is Exactly How To Engage with "Other Side"

David Pakman’s interview with Scott Adams is Exactly How To Engage with “Other Side” r/contrapoints This is the first time I’ve seen an interview of David Pakman’s, I’m really glad that it was with Scott Adams about President Trump’s 2017 Report Card (first draft). Who is Scott Adams? The person who created Dilbert obviously! A long running successful comic about an Engineer’s criticisms of society, he’s also a prolific blogger!

Sassy Smart Video Political Satire

I was blown away when I found out that I have a lot of Trump supporters that are fans of my work that didn’t know I was making fun of Trump. I thought I was making him look worse but it turns out that people who support Trump they love that, that’s what they they love that him bullying people and being down on people, cursing at people and starting fights.

Fuck You Trump, by Eminem

The Paradox of Tolerance

The Open Society and Its Enemies, Philosopher Karl Popper

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be most unwise.

America Needed Bernie Sanders, a Politician

The tension between North Korea and the United States is becoming increasingly tense which is causing further tensions with Russia, Syria, and China. If there are a bunch of kids in a group having problems with one particular child, who would you proclaim to be the protaganist? As always your perspective is going to be contextual on your relationship to the situation, are you the parent of the bully? You empathize with the child and know that its behavior is a result of further issues.

100 Days

In the American Media you’re hearing a lot right now about Trump’s first 100 days, people are (rightfully so) giving this topic a lot of attention. Understanding what this presidency focuses its attention on in its first days gives us an idea of where the administration is pointing our future. I had personally been thinking about these 100 days a lot lately, and honestly, it was making me extremely depressed, despondant, and anxious.

Noam Chomsky on Trump's First 75 Days

Recently Democracy Now interviewed Noam Chomsky on Trump’s first 75 Days as President, here’s some key points I took away from it. On the alleged interference of the election by Russia, Chomsky points out that America is constantly interfering with world politics and overthrowing governments. If Russia and Trump were to have a more positive relationship this would not be a negative thing at all, especially considering we’re at a really dangerous time.

Donald Trump's America Attacks Syria

My Response I am disappointment in Trump, to clarify I have no faith in him, I’ve never supported him, I don’t respect him. However I do know that before he became the president he was not part of the central powers that are intent on destroying the world in pursuit of more power. This was the one thing I thought he would do differently to Hillary, that he would opt for less conflict in order to focus on business.

America, Resist Donald Trump

I will begin to resist by writing more. Trump is proving to be the perfect distraction for the Republican party, he creates outrageous executive orders that consumes the public’s social media feeds. In the meantime the Republican controlled government carry out their systematic destruction of the services that were keeping America from both starting a nuclear war and bringing upon climate change harder and faster than ever.

HyperNormalisation 2016, Adam Curtis on Chapo Trap House

The World we’re living in now is one where the line between fantasy and reality, politics and entertainment has been erased, and we’re living in a semi-synthetic reality. Will Trump’s Election is the only thing that makes sense, really there’s no other thing that could have happened. Matt Adam Curtis is a British documentary film maker who’s films are fascinating and really fit in with the Chapo vision of the world.
