So, person in the video tried to go into courtroom because he is free and don't care about some government-issued restrictions. There is large amount of videos like this: https://youtube.com/watch?v=t-32-m0_-Sg [Embed]
I think that overwhelming amount of interactions with law and lawyers in the West (tm) makes people go mad.
It is surprising, but recently in Russia (internet part of it, ok) started to see lookalike "movement", but centered not about freedoms (it is already trademarked by USA) but about Soviet Union. Something like "Soviet Union wasn't dissolved lawfully" (or wasn't dissolved at all) and then you need to conform USSR laws, not Russian etc. I've seen at least one real person who lectured me about this. They much less known than their American counterparts but share same mindset, although they don't try to confront local police because it isn't fun at all.
I blame USA for exporting their conspiracies to us. Trump pls stop.
>>13152 Oh, those who think they didn't partake in any social contract or rather they try to take back their power, rights etc. from the state.
>"Soviet Union wasn't dissolved lawfully" (or wasn't dissolved at all) That's interesting. How this lawful dissolution should have looked like?
I have similar notions about Hungary's current political system. In 1989 two groups made decision about the regime change and the future of Hungary: 1. the puppet socialist/communist establishment which was installed and kept in power by the Soviet Union, 2. the self-appointed "opposition" whose members were subservient collaborators of the regime. Neither group had the authorization of the Hungarian people but they sat down and made an agreement that the former one will share the burden of leadership with the latter one which in return guarantees them safety from prosecution. Then they offered each other the prospect of life, liberty and the pursuit of embezzlement of national property and public funds. Together they created an electoral system which ensured people will vote on the state approved parties (i.e. those parties which were the part of the "opposition" made this pact).
>>13154 >How this lawful dissolution should have looked like?
It is hard to tell. Technically republics had right to exit from USSR in their constitution from 20s (commies didn't even expected that someone will use this, but...), and even RSFSR (i.e. Russia) could.
But USSR couldn't dismantle itself, maybe some kind of referendum could happen, but referendum is also isn't thing that can be above the law, because majority rule isn't a law by design. Actually, there is almost no states that can dissolve themselves, or even transform, so every revolution is unlawful.
But the sole concept of lawfulness is also flawed, because if you go back to history you'll find some time when law was created "from nothing", i.e. by decision of some people. So, almost everything in this world is lawful just because it is accepted as lawful, not because other reasons. It is mostly philosophical question though.
>n 1989 two groups made decision about the regime change and the future of Hungary
USSR had something like this. First KPSS decided to democracify the government and allowed free elections, then elected officials from different republics did some talks and dissolved the union (and KPSS). It wasn't really peaceful though, but it is long story that everyone (I think) know.

Yeah I seen these on KC main. Fun. I have an explanation for the thin/chinky eyed puffy faced pictures. I have not one but two people among my friends who got similar looks when they got drunk. So I guess I would put that look onto the alcohols tab.
>>108877 >one aspect of morality is choosing not to be a sick fucking psychopath who rapes prepubescent girls because your damaged brain is wired to see children as sexual objects. on a scale of 1-10, how 'moral' (in the same sense) is taking animal life for food? if you scored low because you're vegan then you must be friends with immoral people who eat meat even your parents and ancestors. are butchers considered immoral then? again. it's just the general consensus that makes up morality. morality didn't matter after death, no one's suing your ancestors for killing other's ancestors.
this is why they made religion. there's content about taking animal life what's kosher or halal etc. to make people feel better. really shatters the scale right? how ideal.. and convenient.
>You're just posting moronic rationalization drivel to excuse your choice to inflict suffering on others. your kind are those who seek justice only to inflict judgement to certain groups you hate. if you truly practice and preach justice then you shouldn't be selective and broaden your scope.
>People like yourself should be beaten severely and exiled from the community to live in the wilderness like what happened hundreds of years ago. Other people have emotions, feelings, experience suffering, have goals and dreams just like yourself. what a wonder! "your rights end when my feelings/emotions get threatened" not-so justicey? for you, justice is probably a tool to moralize abusing the abuser.
>But in your "nothing matters" world it's ok to treat others as if they were NPCs with no interior(coginitive/emotional) life like your own. >The definition of a sociopath and cluster B personality disorder.
>>108891 the way how >>108888 anon writes is very funny. had to pretend that guy's seriously trolling and not from reddit. seriously.
>yes thats how morality works, since its just a human concept, not a natural law. and i'll say it again, since you didn't catch it in the first place. human concepts can be inhumane. on the bright side, free will and justice when interlinked together makes them balanced and sane enough, morality can be insane sometimes but when it does it only asks for a death wish but most of them can escape unscathed even in the hands of justice.
moving back to the old topic: maybe, if we lived in, say, an alternate universe where all popular biblical texts approved of pedophilia then we'd think that the "divine law" is absolute and it is moral. good thing we got rid of human sacrifice part (although cabals, cults, and tribes still practice them all secretly but let's not go deeper).
>people will place themselves under others wills by their own accord. some people have nothing to accept them. some don't even exist - most people don't remember them but I'm sure many've seen them before. even those moral powerhouses that preach divine laws would even turn them away. >not according to all of human history you're not. influential defeatism only makes the fight harder than it were.
ISIS in Deir ez-Zor got almost rekt, siege is broken.
YPG forces started their own offensive and arrived in north of Deir ez-Zor. >US-Led Coalition ‘Will Not Allow’ Syrian Army To Cross Euphrates River In Deir Ezzor https://twitter.com/southfronteng/status/906624779997765632 wew I except they start fighting with each other soon, maybe even tomorrow, while ISIS will occasionaly bomb a car or a tank on both sides.
ISIS in eastern Homs are getting gradually removed and hopefully soon they will be containet in the east.
There was something about Israel entering Lebanon air space and Syria reacting with anti air defence but sadly I lost link to proofs.
At that pocket SAA resumed the offensive with a detour. The resistance could be too much on that main road? Meanwhile ISIS takes over that area. In the place of the rebels I would withdraw my troops out of there asap. If they do that then it's more understandable the ISIS' advance. Where does ISIS gets it's supplies from? Where do they get it in that particular area? They need food, ammo, medicine, clothing, weapons, spare parts, other equipment. That area doesn't seem to be the largest producers of goods. Of course the warring parties take each others stuff as spoils of war but still.
Leddit already has a megathread on the Afrin, and the first reports are already showing up of casualties and skirmishes. It's happening.
>>13174 >Suddenly everyone's busy everywhere. Pic related is the weather at Idlib province. Maybe that's part of why the main battle stalled for a while.
>Where does ISIS gets it's supplies from? Where do they get it in that particular area? Some of it is smuggled and some is bought from corrupt besieger officers. Besieged areas even have some level of civilian trade going on. See, for instance:
>Abu Ayman is a trader from the city of Mesraba near Douma and continues to run a dairy there. He supplies Eastern Ghouta with food and fuel, relying on personal relations with regime officials to get his supplies checkpoints through the Harasta checkpoint (northeast of Damascus city). He then delivers the products to customers in the city, charging prices up to 20 times higher than in Damascus. >Merchants send and receive supply orders on opposite ends of the tunnel. The battalions allow goods to pass through the tunnels in exchange for a percentage of the sale value, which varies by type of good.
today as I've been reading the best source of PROOFS (I mean, they're funded by a government, they literally can't be biased) I noticed this https://www.rt.com/news/394082-south-korea-kim-assassination/ >Former South Korean President Park Geun-hye was making plans to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un
since koryŏ has been quite busy lately I think it warrants a specific thread
>>13089 >You know, they could always fire some nukes from nato territory in europ so it could be even less time.
This is why INF treaty was signed in late 80-s. Now it is forbidden to make medium range missiles that can be placed in Europe (or Latin America/Cuba for USSR). Treaty works only on USSR/Russia and USA though, and doesn't cover sea-based missiles (that is why Tomahawks and their Russian based alternatives are used only on ships or subs).
In Russia now many people think that Gorbachev was a traitor. There is often cited story about OTR-23 "Oka" (SS-23) that wasn't fully qualified to be in this treaty but dismantled because "good will" of Gorbachev, and this is a treason etc. But in reality it was USSR who needed this treaty, not USA, because USA can't be easily reached from medium range, and USSR is very vulnerable because of Europe. But don't tell this to modern Russian "patriots", they wouldn't believe you anyway.
And looks like now there is process to dismantle the treaty from both sides. It isn't a good thing at all, although really it is mostly about China and other powers, who have no such restrictions and can do anything, not about Russia/USA relations.
>Imagine my situation when my country is pretty much bordering russia
You are in better position I guess. Russia won't bomb you much. Yes, you may expect some nuclear fallout, destruction of infrastructure and some burning cities, but it wouldn't be inevitable death of millions in 20 minutes, when all major cities and their neighborhoods are targeted by thousand of missiles. I think people who don't live close to military bases will be relatively ok in nuclear conflict in Eastern Europe.
>>13125 This is actually a very big thing, especially considering recent tensions around Korea.
It is also a good idea to create conspiracy theory about all this. Both Koreas work together as good/bad cops, North acting aggressive and South getting international support because of this. And everyone believe them.
>>13126 Kim Jong Un might try to win more time (as their nuclear and ICBM capabilities still aren't known exactly and their rhetoric still can be called a bluff) and this occasion is good for them to soften the echo of recent events. Their proposition was a surprise (they took the initiative) and while Hanguk claims constantly they are always open to peace talks the current situation has the implication it was Choson who offered the olive branch and Kim Jong Un is the one who had the idea to set aside the enmity.

I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.
But what did the author write? Let's summarize. He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy. The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam. He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option. Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.
What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won. For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.
I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.
because now my link is not working at all for me. Sigh, that was the only site that had the volume with the 11th Michigan Cavalry, they fought Morgan's guerillas in Kentucky
and Cavalry vs. guerilla tactics would be quite unlike anything we've dug into so far. I am curious to see how the psychological fatigue guerillas induce would be complicated by the animal husbandry present in a fully mounted force
