    Haha I'm afraid I'd be biased And it is very complex. I don't like boiling geopolitical conflicts into tl;drs because I'll probably end up butchering it.

    The most immediate events are protests all over Ukraine over the President cancelling a EU trade deal and corruption. President Yanukovych ends up leaving the country, gets impeached in absentia and an interrim government is in power, making some changes which I don't quite remember. Anyways Russia invades the Crimea, and now their parliament have voted to secede from Ukraine and are having a referendum on the 16th about the same issue.

    I'm sure I missed a lot.

    Not yet, I'll see if my brother's interested. I heard about the censorship it's getting in Europe. I haven't watched any of the newer episodes recently due to college, so I fear I'll be missing out references/tie-ins from those episodes in the new game.

    I'm kinda surprised that you've friend requested me. I'm not all that well in political debates.

    Hey, sorry it took me so long to answer! I wanted to think on it for a bit. As a whole, I don't object to taxes. Taxes are just another power that the government has, and like any other power, it has the potential to be abused. It's abuse of the power of taxation that I object to. The best way to look at abuse of the power of taxation is to look at it through the prism of no taxation without representation (that tired old phrase we all learned in elementary school haha). If the people running the government aren't properly representing the interests and desires of their constituents, then their collection of taxes is unjust. Because in that case, taxes aren't being collected and used on behalf of the people, but rather in spite of them. That's why I think taxes should be minimized. People know best how to spend their own money, and minimizing taxes minimizes the potential for abuse.

    Another thing to consider is this: you mentioned that taxes are necessary to keep the government running. But less than half of our taxes go towards running the government. Here's a video from Bill Whittle (one of my favorite political guys) where he breaks down the 2011 federal budget. Only about 33.7% of taxes actually paid for running the government in 2011. 5.4% was the interest on the federal debt, and the rest (about 60.9%) was spent on entitlements. Not trying to make a point against entitlements, but seeing the numbers puts it into perspective that the very little of what we pay in taxes actually pays for maintaining the government.

    Well, I'd say that there really isn't a clear definition. Liberals label conservatives discriminatory/elitist fascist, whereas conservatives label liberals as controlling socialist/elitist fascists.

    Two tenets that seem to follow most definitions are nationalism and totalitarianism.

    Nationalism, which could be considered in simplest terms a population that is patriotic, loyal, reverent, to their nation.

    Totalitarianism, which could be considered in simplest terms a state that seeks to control the private and public components of their citizen's lives.

    For instance, conservatives seek to control lives by instituting policy that conserves mores and conventions of the nation. Whereas, liberal seek to control lives by instituting controls over health, environment, and other regulations. Both seek to control the lives of citizens though social mandates, or laws, that define which behaviors are and are not acceptable. Though, it's a matter of degree. Especially since there is so much polarization, both sides are competing for control, thus, we are considered either a democracy or polity. Though a totalitarian state would be controlled by one unified group of elitists.

    In this respect, a single group of elites are not controlling the lives of citizens. There is, perhaps, too much partisanship among elites, and thus, constituents. Which is more chaos, and the opposite of totalitarianism in certain respects. Some would argue a balance of control and freedom is necessary for a stable, yet happy state.

    I ramble, but this is a difficult subject to tackle, it's difficult to separate terms that are loaded with generalizations and connotations. Both sides tend to condemn the other for taking to much control over the lives of people, and disrupting freedom. Thus, each side calls the other fascist, but ultimately, this dynamic, could be considered hyper-polarized, conflicting, and thus less uniform, totalitarian, and nationalistic.

    You listen mostly to metal eh (iirc)? Do you ever feel out of touch with a music scene? Like stop listening/downloading for a while and then feel like a hermit when there's this song that everybody knows but you haven't heard.

It's been about a week now since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and like so many gamers, I could not resist the urge to jump on the bandwagon once again and play the next big Zelda title. So far, most of what I expected is there with some slight disappointments here and there, but in my extremely subjective opinion...this is probably one of the best Zelda games by far, despite some of its glaring gameplay flaws.

Most of its success can be attributed, of course,...

It is only one reason out of many but it is a big one....there are certainly vile pigs in the Trump base, more than many would care to admit....but at the end of the day, I feel that the hubris of the left really did not do anything to help the situation.

And we now must pay the price for our arrogance. I am so sorry for not trying to do better...I address this to both the right and left of PokeCommunity. Hopefully we can come together and prevent a tragedy...

With the latest season of the Pokemon Anime coming to a close, I want to take this time to make a confession that I hate the current English titles of the Pokemon Anime's seasons. I've now taken the liberty of updating them to give an accurate representation of what's in store for you should you watch them for the first time:


Pokémon: Indigo League Defeat

Pokémon: Orange Islands (he actually wins this one, but it isn't canon to the games, so fuk you)

Below are a list of video games that kick so much ass that I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to have good taste. Separated by types of games:

Open World Sandbox:

- Mount & Blade:
You roam around the countryside populated by Teutonics, Vikings, Mongolians, etc. building an army, fighting in (somewhat) realistic medieval style warfare. Allows you to do anything with what you build up: declare loyalty to a lord, fight bandits, conquer a kingdom, marry a...
