In fact, I know there is a Liberal Party who is under investigation for such corruption right now, although the courts have decided that it turned into a "media witch-hunt and thus no fair trial is possible anymore..." Ironically that is a ruling you only hear when politicians are on trial.

    Cool, so he states that everyone is just as bad as the 'corrupt' US conservatives, including US progressives and liberals.

    Quite proud that I managed to figure that out on my own without having to read his little text about it.

    Well, since you did such a great job figuring it out... Can you justify what the article said here:
    For millenia, conservatism had no name, because no other model of polity had ever been proposed. “The king can do no wrong.” In practice, this immunity was always extended to the king’s friends, however fungible a group they might have been. Today, we still have the king’s friends even where there is no king (dictator, etc.). Another way to look at this is that the king is a faction, rather than an individual.
    With this:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ave_Im...ri_te_salutant
    Avē Imperātor, moritūrī tē salūtant ("Hail, Emperor, those who are about to die salute you") is a well-known Latin phrase quoted in Suetonius, De vita Caesarum ("The Life of the Caesars", or "The Twelve Caesars").
    Have you heard of a monarchy or feudalism? God save the Queen...

    But yes, it speaks to how absolutely garbage the US prison system is and how the whole thing is designed purely to inflict further suffering rather than make any credible attempt at rehabilitation in an effort to reduce recidivism and promote overall public safety.

    Flatly untrue. Some of us actually want equity for all. Kindly don't project your own thinking onto everyone else.

    Neither of those are "political parties". And "incapable of being corrupted" is a wildly different take than what Levelfive quoted. You're moving two separate goalposts at once, here.

    Nah,

    At first, when the ideology within the party is still respected, it's just a difference on who the in-groups and the out-groups are, then slowly over time but inevitably, the in-group becomes the political party itself.

    This is where you are wrong also. Both of them are widespread political parties in various different modern countries who have all gotten caught up in their own scandals and corruption due to exactly what I mentioned: their in-group becoming themselves, even if originally, a few hundred years ago, their ideology was purely devoted to liberalism or socialism.

    Again, you're still just projecting your own bias, here. Your inability to grasp equity for all is a "you" problem, not some unavoidable barrier in human thinking.

    It's becoming really clear you have no idea what "party" means, in political terminology.

    Two parties in separate countries which both have "liberal" in their name do not have any coordination or shared leadership and do not necessarily pursue the same goals or platforms. That isn't "corruption", it's just the recognition that a "party" is a different thing than a broad ideological concept like "liberalism", which is so broad as to include multiple interpretations which cannot be reconciled with each other.

    Well, your optimism in the purity of intentions of people, ideologies and parties sure is admirable. Reminds me of myself when I was still a decade younger.

    Just remember, the road to hell is paved with virtuous intentions.

    There's no claim of "purity of intentions" in my post at all.

    You're still doing nothing but projecting your own personal issues onto the world at large.

    Once again, y'all continue to leave out the part where this is somehow justification for defaulting to lethal force.

    The idea that it's acceptable to skip the judicial process and carry out an execution so long as a badly trained rent-a-cop deems it necessary is kinda cringe, so I'm not sure why you're pushing it.

    How would you know when you've never stuck by a consistent ideology or personality for more than a few months? Lol.

    Why the fuck is a 16-year old trying to stab someone and where the fuck are the adults?

    This tragedy could've been avoided but it isn't up to the cops to avoid this tragedy. They did what they were trained to do and in this specific situation, the choices they made were correct.
    I had heard the one to call the cops was the one with the knife, in which case... do you now believe self-defence is not a thing?

    Still hearing conflicting things about who called 911. So far we know the argument started because the girl that died was told to clean the house. Also self defense is absolutely a thing, but a cop seeing someone running around trying to stab two different people is going to target the person trying to do the stabbing. It is also why there are instances of good guys/undercovers with guns getting shot by police because all the police sees is someone about to shoot someone and they act on that.

    She was not being attacked by the individual she charged at with a knife. This is not self defense.

    Black women steps in to help another black woman who is protesting. Perfect example of how police officers need extensive retraining in mental health, de-escalation, and a number of other social work areas.

    So next you gonna say that teachers broke up knife fights with bare hands?
    Blaming colonialism for knife fights. What now?!

    You love calling people honeys, it seems. That is kinda creepy and/or attempt at playing someone older with more authority. Stop that crap, please.


    I am sure you are bigger expert than the cop who shot her in deciding what force should have been used xD. It basically sounds as if you are attempting to say that every single case where cops shoots someone is an execution instead of stopping a threat.
    Justification is simple - stopping an attacker with weapon in the middle of actual attack. No, tasers are not the magical answer to everything, no matter how much you love throwing around insults like "badly trained rent-a-cop". It is just your headcannon, not the absolute truth/law.
