    If memory serves me correctly, we have people who support Labour, Green, Lib Dem, Conservative, UKIP as their political party of choice on the team.

    Just because you may not have seen them doesn't mean a blanket statement at all of the staff is either relevant or factual, but there you go.

    Hitler's rhetoric on Jewish people was basically identical to the rhetoric of the ANC on White people, they stole our history, they have all the money blahblahblah. Hitler was a progressive who also happened to be racist.

    Its perfectly possible; the far-right mods might moderate some small or nonpolitical subforum.

    You have to admit, though, that to be a viable business, TSR has to attract advertisers, and to do this, it can't be seen to be a platform for right-wing views, since the advertisers will be student-related, and students are left-wing, less white, and more international.

    Mods' political views don't necessarily translate to how they moderate; their hands are kind of tied, imo.

    Whilst I agree that being a progressive overall and being racist are obviously not exclusive, can you please elaborate on what made Hitler a progressive?

    what do you even mean by "far-right"? far right is as much a "non-concept" as "feminism". it has no definition.

    so they're sell outs. ahhhh.

    nahh, they report in a very imbalanced way if you want my account
    edit: I just remember that I'm not even ****ing allowed to discuss mod flaggings so I've removed all of my description because I have the utmost confidence that they will jump to the opportunity to flag me again. the fact theat they don't want me to discuss how they've flagged me in the past is just a testament to the fact that they don't like accountability.

    VIctim-complex, obsession with equality and the good honest Germans being swindled by another group without accepting that maybe they should work harder rather than crying like *****es after WW1. Eugenics was originally leftist too.

    It's not just about other people's kids, the country and civilisation you live in would collapse. Free basic education is one of the reasons the West is miles ahead in scientific output than other countries. Unless you're fine with the literacy rate and avg IQ dropping by 10 points, I don't think that's wise.

    Either a wealthy city state built by capitalism of become a wildman in America. Literally those are my ideals, gangster banker city states and pioneer frontier life. Cities like London are the most degenerate government funded hellholes on the world, I'd sooner live in Iraq with all the terrorism and violence.

    Nightmare. China will care about themselves only.

    Regardless I don't think it'll happen in our lifetime. US is still lightyears ahead of anyone militarily.
