  5. The Surveillance State - David Icke https://www.davidicke.com/article/570957/surveillance-state-david-icke
  6. Yes, absolutely. It's all good. I know I often touch on some edgy subjects and it can get heated. No hard feelings. I do feel like these girls who get abused often have nobody to turn to because of political correctness, but that's a government issue. Not sure what the answer is personally. The girls need to be listened to, but obviously it needs to be dealt with in a sensible manner given how sensitive the topic is.
  7. @Messenger "not an ethnic background. Sorry. " So why does this article say "the white man's burden" if it's just a religion like you say? https://archive.is/ihZ4p What does it have to do with white folks? This doesn't need to be answered as I'm not looking for an argument, just giving an example. There is clearly more nuance to these topics though.
  8. Ethnicity is something to do with it in certain cases though. Does that mean all people in certain groups are bad? Obviously not. That shouldn't even need to be said. If a minority is harmed because of the colour of their skin then that is an issue. If a white girl is harmed because someone thinks she deserves it for being white trash that is also an issue. What is the difference?
  9. What are you on about? I never said anything about not all races not having nonces. I was specifically talking about the Hollywood meme. I was clearly talking about what they often IDENTIFY as, not whether it is a real ethnicity or not. Calm down and stop getting "offended".
  10. I totally agree with you. I didn't really share for the "Republican" part though, more the fact that they're using theories about implants to ridicule, but they forget to mention that surveillance amounts to more than just implants.
  11. More than 40% of Republicans think Bill Gates will use COVID-19 vaccine to implant tracking chips, survey says https://www.cnet.com/news/more-than-40-of-republicans-think-bill-gates-will-use-covid-19-vaccine-to-implant-tracking-chips-survey-says/ So implants are just a conspiracy theory? What about digital immunity passports or tattoos, or just plain old facial recognition? It seems we're heading in a direction where you will need to give up your biometric data to go and buy groceries. Most people that I have spoken to seem to be against implants so I have hard time believing they could mandate chips in the near future, but biometric terminals can still be rolled out everywhere, and you're basically living in a prison at that point.
  12. Underrated thread, and thanks for the Xampp suggestion, I'm going to check that out.
  13. One thing I will say, it makes a big difference when things are taken care of. If you compare the communist blocks of East Berlin to the Russian ones, there seems to be a lot of difference.
  14. Very depressing architecture like Thamesmead, which was also in that movie.
  15. I was always fascinated by this since I learned about it at r/culturallayer and stolenhistory.org a couple of years back.
  16. Just want to add, examples of non-Eurocentric architecture and art is welcome too. Obviously as European I'm speaking from my own experience, but there are many wonderful creations around the globe.
  17. Interesting, I never knew that. Thanks "Many times gargoyles in Gothic churches were attached to the gutter system of the roof, with the mouth of the gargoyle acting as a spout for rainwater, helping keep the masonry from being destroyed." "Just as with bosses and chimeras, gargoyles are said to protect what they guard, such as a church, from any evil or harmful spirits." That seems to be the official narrative, although I wouldn't doubt that there is possibly a sinister reason. Not sure why they have to be grotesque either.
  18. Well said and articulated better than I could. I agree with brutalism being the worst offender too.
  19. Good points. Nature itself is beautiful, so more buildings that blend into the scenery that also have little to no impact on nature are definitely needed. I wouldn't mind living like a hobbit. lol
