>>61201957 I one time tried to give food to a begging child in the Balkan. He refused the food, his parents (who didn't strike me as poor) then came and accused me of trying to poison him and said that I should give money if I wanted to help them.
They would rather feel good doing something that would damage someone rather than feel bad doing something that may benefit someone.
And so long as they don't have to think too much about what their doing, so long as what they are doing is considered "good", then they are in the clear.
They are very socially dependent on perception, and rely on the strength of the group to prop themselves up rather than being a pillar of strength that the group can rely on.
I am deeply saddened by how liberal has come to mean these things. I identify as a classical liberal, a social traditionalist (traditionalist in this sense meaning being resisting change of classical liberal values and their expansion beyond what was intended), and a pragmatic economist leaning toward chicago school (though my knowledge of economics is very basic still).
I was speaking generally, but as it happens it's up to Africans to solve their own hunger problems, not the responsibility of Westerners thousands of miles away. Most famines are caused by locally-based wars and/or political repression, not by Whitey and his well-stocked supermarkets.
>>61201957 >Money grows on trees. >We have no need for borders. >White men are the source of all problems in the world >The earth is not over populated >Anyone who doesn't agree with all of the above is a NAZI, RACIST, BIGGOT, HITLER INCARNATE.
I think it's more that leftist men are less masculine, and feminine psychology tends to take an accommodating or conciliating approach to threats rather than the path of physical resistance. Leftists probably know very well that blacks and Muslims are on average more violent than whites (their actions belie their words at any rate), but they hope that they can ward off the violence of the latter groups through appeasement, just as a woman would.
>>61201957 I need a photo of the cart without someones hand taking up the foreground. That way I can shoop someone putting tampons, KY Jelly or something equally humorous into the hands of the starving african kid.
>>61203268 >So these shopping trolleys let me take food out of little starving niggers hands? no no no Using the power of portals it actually allows Africans to reach into your cart and steal your food.
>Send food and medicine to Africa. >Africa has a high birth rate duo to rape and ideology. >Less babies die duo to food and medicine and lifespan increases. >Africa overpopulates and without infrastructure or proper goverment it's a shithole people start to migrate to Europe. >All of this will double throughout the years as Europe continues to adress the problem by throwing money at Africa.
Europe is that rich dad that throws money at his son and ignores it while expecting it will have a stable life in the future.
Same goes with warzones, but your average libtard / women can't think this far.
It has been teaching people for years that 'feelings' matter and that 'perception is reality', and then saying that thoughts/feelings/behaviours are a product of socialisation and biology (brain chemistry).
Immoral, socially or culturally undesirable behaviour is an illness cause by socialisation+biology. People aren't responsible for their own actions. It was their father's fault for not hugging them enough as a child.
Basically all of cultural Marxism revolves around psychoanalysis and 'feelings' over evidence and reality. Freud was a Jewish Cultural Marxist.
It's why you see shit like 'microaggressions' and 'internalised misogyny' thrown around so often to try to excuse/dismiss legitimate thought as a pathological illness.
Psychiatry gave us the 'self esteem' movement in the late 80s-90s while telling us spanking kids was bad which has resulted in a bunch of retarded millennial snowflakes demanding that everyone immediately now to their feelings, and getting triggered into a temper tantrum when they don't get their own way.
Psychiatry is a pseudoscience ideology that had fucked up the entire western world.
>>61204819 It's the Mugabe scenario all over again.
>Prosperous breadbasket nation >Nigs get into power >Land reform >All white land spread among nigs who have no idea how to use it >Food production crashes HARD >Years of famine >Beg for foreign aid >Beg for whites to come back and farm "plz we are starving"
>>61201957 >the customer of a Big Box Mart company is responsible for the care and well-being of people from a completely different country
Really fucking grinds my gears when these companies try to shame their own customers into doing these things. News flash geniuses, you fuckers have the material needed to provide for these poor fucks, cut out the middle man (us) and send them your own food if this is so much of an issue for you.
>>61205272 nothing too bad personally - I as well as my family has been very lucky, aside from my mother being the victim of an attempted hijacking. Half of everyone that I know has had a break-in or been mugged at some point.
A friend of a friend was gang-raped when she was 13 and had to be moved to Australia because she would break down at the sight of a black

Almost all arguments can be boiled down to a degree to emotion or empathy. It's unavoidable. And psychiatry has its flaws, but dismissing psychology as pseudoscience is ridiculous.
>>61201957 >How the fuck does the average liberal mind work? I'm seriously confused. I want to feel good but I dont want to actually do anything helpful so I'll pity unfortunate people and treat them like dogs at an animal shelter instead of finding a real solution.
>>61201957 You're not doing niggers any favors by feeding their kids for them. Their entire population is dependent on foreign aid. The second the food stops pouring in from the west, 90% of their population will die from starvation. Of course, most of the rest will die during the fighting over food.
It's almost like someone intentionally set up Africa to be this brittle that it could be destroyed with no effort.
>>61204519 Please open a human geography book. Rape's contribution to birth rates is negligible, and ideology pales in strength compared to economic factors. And no, European and American aid policies aren't a significant part of African wealth. Most monetary or nutritional aid doesn't even make it to the population because it gets stuck in the corrupt quagmire of government there. The massive exports of "free everything!" goods like clothing and textiles causes issues in other ways, like upsetting the local market balances and destroying domestic businesses.
>>61202697 Everyone wants to compare themselves favorably to everyone else. If you're ugly, you'll say "at least I'm smarter/richer than that other guy." If you're tall, you'll say "at least I'm not a manlet." Comparing yourself favorably to others is a source of happiness for humans which are social animals.
The liberal compares himself favorably to others using their moral superiority. By positioning themselves as "more caring" than others, they can shame people. They will vote for policies that help others more than themselves (and shame those who don't). They will attempt to explain away facts that make one group look superior (and shame those who don't).
The reason liberalism became a popular, or even dominant, strategy in the game of human socialization and politics has to do with the decline of religion. People have been comparing themselves favorably to others morally through the lens of religion for centuries. It allows someone to confidently say that they are better than someone else in the eyes of god, even when everything else seems to argue the opposite. But with the advent of globalization and improved education, faith declined. This and the developing world changed the definition of "being a good person" from "follow the bible and don't kill people" to "helping minorities, people in third world countries"
Given the left's penchant for calling people names, ignoring evidence in favor of ideology, and censorship, it's no surprise that they're the new version of religious extremists.
>“The most savage, bilious, self-righteous rants are from people living affluent self-pleasing lives in comfortable homes, doing lucky and rewarding jobs with like-minded friends. What they are doing (I risk losing a friend or two) is “virtue-signalling”: competing to seem compassionate. Few are notably open-handed: St Matthew would need a rewrite of Chapter 19. “Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast and give to the poor. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. So he went on Twitter instead and called Michael Gove a ‘vile reptilian evil tory scumbag’, and linked to a cartoon of Iain Duncan Smith stealing a paralysed woman’s wheelchair. And lo, he felt better and went for a £3.50 caramel macchiato with some mates from the BBC”
>>61206662 >The reason liberalism became a popular, or even dominant, strategy in the game of human socialization and politics has to do with the decline of religion. That's an interesting (if maybe obvious for some) perspective.
>Given the left's penchant for calling people names, ignoring evidence in favor of ideology, and censorship, it's no surprise that they're the new version of religious extremists. Make sense. And yes, now you're most definitely no more scratching at the surface. It still baffels me though that the lack/void of religion needs to be filled so aggressively.
Liberals are not at their core stupid or even bad people they have a very natural compassion for their fellow man.
This is normal, if you don't feel for people who have it worse than you then you're some kind of sociopath or something. This is a good impulse, it is what makes us act decent to each other.
We have other impulses though, we have a sense of justice or fairness. We want to go find the bad guy who is causing this pain for others and stop him. Also a normal and natural impulse.
The Liberal feels these things and wants to help- to make things better. However there are too many needy, too many suffering, too many in pain. He can't possibly help them all and if he tries he may destroy himself and his family in the process. Likewise he cannot just steal the money of others to fix these problems as it would be immoral(I know they do, I'm getting to that).
The Liberal sees the very real fact that the rich get richer, the poor poorer... and that the poor have little power. The rich abuse their power for their own good(again, this is natural) the poor can't do shit.
So the liberal sees the system as the problem, the rich as the problem, the powerful as the problem, or the majority as the problem. These things become the villain... once you've identified something as the villain you can attack it or take from it with your internal idea of morality intact. So they do this, they attack, they take, they cheat, they lie. All of it is now justified because they're only hurting the bad guy to help the good guy.
The problem of course is for their internal narrative to work, you have to throw out any idea of individualism or self determination. You have to put people in broad categories and create differing rules and expectations for them based on this. You must always look at people based on what group they belong to, not who they are as a human being.
Overall I'm sympathetic with a social-democratic state that knows how fragile it's system and the prosperity that fuels it, is..
I do not support mass immigration, multiculturalism or transgenderism/Gender-fluidity bullshit idea morons come up with. The mainstream left-wing has effectively become a tool of powerful financial interests. They alienate a conservative, often lower-to-lower-middle-class, often white(because whites are the majority in the US and Europe obviously) demographic by pushing various agendas like gay marriage, thus guaranteeing weak support among that demographic when it comes to standing against shit like NAFTA or TPP.
there needs to be a;
socially:conservative(or at least moderate), economically:"left-wing"
>>61210608 I don't really give a fuck if people gay marry or call themselves a tri-gender unicorn. I don't really mind people of other cultures either... AS LONG AS THEY ASSIMILATE OR ADAPT TO OUR WAY OF LIFE RATHER THAN EXPECTING US TO CHANGE OURS.
Economically speaking, some level of oversight and control is probably needed but I think it is way too overbearing. I want to be able to keep the fruits of my labor and use them as I see fit.
>>61213009 In the tropics, there is no need to plant or 'farm'. Even African farms during colonizalization, shipped goods back to Europe. Every day the food is always there. They don't have to learn to farm. Go out, pick a mango, kill a monkey. Go to bed, rinse repeat. This is why this human subspecies and many like it, evolved for the 'now'.
Contrast that with the peoples who migrated to the far north and had to adapt to the seasons as they migrated. Those who couldn't, died and didn't pass along their 'now' genes. Those who could plan for the next growing season, and who evolved to think about how to store food for the long months of dark frozen winter, survived to pass along their 'future-thinking' genes.
