What's really important, Sup Forums?

I feel like I'm turning into a conservative.

Am I weird for thinking that we should preserve a specific way of american life?

what's really important is people being free and happy without a bunch of other jackoffs trying to change that.

moving towards more conservatism is normal in many places, because as people age, they tend to get wider exposure to all the different types of people and lifestyles in the world, and they usually become scared little fucking pussies about it. so congratulations on becoming a scared little pussy who clings on to their "good old days" instead of just sucking it up and moving on into the future, you backwards-ass cumlord.

Nah, it's real. When I was a kid, we'd say "I'm going out to play," and mom would say, "come back when the street lights come on." Literally every kid in the neighborhood did the same thing and heard the same thing. We were white middle class kids, and the world seemed mostly safe. Now I have a couple of kids, and if you did this you'd be charged with child abuse.

Kayden Young

Well you have to find a balance between the influence of the modern world and your own ideals.
It's not like you don't have control over it - just if you give up on it because "that's just how todays world is" or you've missed certain spots in child upbringing where certain damage cannot be undone.
If you've got kids at some point then enforce some rules which you find important. Have them put their smart phone away when you're eating and punish them for cursing - stuff like that.

Cooper Morales
Cooper Morales

But here's the red pill. Conservatives TALK about preserving traditional values but their actions don't actually preserve anything. Kind of like a priest preaching about morality then diddling your kid.

Thomas Perry

Being as non miserable as you can be is the point. It's important to take care of yourself and your fam. If you have to kill others to ensure that, then that's what you have to do.

Leo Allen

Andrew Martin

I'm not trying to pretend like I've been religious/moral/ top notch this whole time.
I don't believe in nationalism/patriotism.

Isn't there a real childhood, a basic experience we should all be having in order to make us the best adults we can be? An ideal we can all follow regardless of upbringing/race/class?

Isn't there a basic childhood experience
Well psychologists have narrowed good and productive upbringing to some points. If you want to understand how to make it right you'll have to do some reading, but i guess the baseline is encourage positive behavior, discourage negative behavior and help the child develop a decent personality.

Sure, there is. The “conformity through obedience” mentality of the 1950s is hardly the ideal, though. You are looking back on a fantasy created by baby boomers and older generations who believe those were the good old days. Just like 90s kids think the 90s were the coolest thing ever. Just like the next generation growing up right now will talk about how the the 2010s were the simpler times.

Things are going to change. Hopefully they will change for the better. Resisting change by clinging to a way of life that can no longer be is the epitome of being a Luddite.

Grayson Hernandez

All you need to do is ask yourself what way of american life from the past was so perfect you think youre going to preserve it. Then actually read shit from that magical winderful utopian era, and realize what an utter shitslinging hellhole it was for most people, and realize that if you want a better way of life, its in the future, not the past, and you have to build it. Sitting in your hands trying to preserve what is comfortable only ensyres you will be left behind. The people in your favored golden era all worked to improve this countrys way of life away from and out of that time, and youre just being pathetic and lazy by being unable to fit in to your own time and trying to bring bsck an old one where you think you’ll belong. Youre in fantasyland. Learn to adapt to a rapidly changing society or go live in a mud hut in Nigeria.

Nov. 14, 1960 six-year-old Ruby Bridges was escorted by a team of U.S. Deputy Marshals as she integrated William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans. She became the first African-American child to attend an all-white elementary school in the South.

Ruby Bridges: "Driving up I could see the crowd, but living in New Orleans, I actually thought it was Mardi Gras. There was a large crowd of people outside of the school. They were throwing things and shouting, and that sort of goes on in New Orleans at Mardi Gras."

As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all the teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Henry taught her alone, "as if she were teaching a whole class."

That first day, Bridges and her adult companions spent the entire day in the principal's office; the chaos of the school prevented their moving to the classroom until the second day. Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her; because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, allowed Ruby to eat only the food that she brought from home.

This is conservatism. This is the moral compass of the past.

Remember the good ol' days before the Millienials took over? You know, when the world was a safe place? And you didn't have to worry about your children playing in the neighborhood?

<<In the long term, violent crime in the United States has been in decline since colonial times. The homicide rate has been estimated to be over 30 per 100,000 people in 1700, dropping to under 20 by 1800, and to under 10 by 1900.

After World War II, crime rates increased in the United States, peaking from the 1970s to the early 1990s. Violent crime nearly quadrupled between 1960 and its peak in 1991. Property crime more than doubled over the same period. Since the 1990s, however, crime in the United States has declined steeply.>>

Humans are paranoid by nature. In the information age it's easy to see everything happening across the entire world, you hear about something bad happening in another country or up to 3000 miles away in your own country and feel it like it's your own neighborhood. In "the good ol days" you didn't hear about every bad thing happening.

If you want a happier life get off the internet, go outside into your own neighborhood, greet your neighbors, do community activities, take care of the people around you.

what are you progressing towards though? the womens liberation movement was meant to be great for women but now it means they can't be stay at home moms living off of one income.

no fault divorce meant children were being raised without fathers, women turned into literal sex objects because they're not worth marrying.

the anti-bullying movement made children soft and unable to communicate a difference of opinion without feeling "attacked" and turning every exchange of ideas into a shit slinging match

anti-slavery fixed nothing for black americans, they're mostly still poor or still kept by whitey.

the clean energy movement raised the cost of electricity.

immigration in the past was done on relatively small scale to the current population and then the gates closed so immigrants could assimilate they haven't closed for a long time. and immigrants are not assimilating

so what changes should i be happy about? gay marriage? when the biggest celebration of your lifestyle choice is dressing up as a female clown and wipping your dick out at passers by, they should have stayed on the list for mental illness.

change for the sake of change is bullshit, change without any idea or consideration of where it leads is the limited foresight of the 'useful idiot'.
everyone now is a fuckin idiot they see something and they go 'why is he wrong about this' not 'why am i wrong about this' before voicing their opinion.

anarchism
belief in the abolition of all government and the organization of society on a voluntary, cooperative basis without recourse to force or compulsion.
democracy means to vote on something and ENFORCE the majorities vote.
Anarchy believes in the abolition of all authority-force.
Anarchy does not deploy democratic societal systems.
Anarchy promotes nothing but the simple philosophy "might makes right"
Anarchy is not a form of organizing society.
Anarchy is - like Atheism is to religion - the absence of any form of societal organization whatsoever.

The result is people having no rights, since no one protects them.
"Personal Rights" / "privileges" under Anarchy are the direct result of the amount of firepower and military capability a individual / group of individuals can muster.

The result are raiding militias, treating the people they encounter as slaves / cattle / servants, unless they themselves can defend themselves as well.
the ogical conclusion over time is the formation of new nations out of the ashes anarchy left behind.

propagating anarchy is not propagating an alternative form of society.
Propagating anarchy is tantamount to propagating a reset and reformation of current societies by violent, possibly catastrophic means.

Anarchy is pure societal destruction.
Deal with it.

Choose one, retard.

You can decide who you rent your labor to.
You can decide to open your own business and rent others labor instead.
No law is keeping you from being a employee to become an employer.
This society is not class-based, since individuals can navigate and choose freely which class they want to belong to.
Hence there is no "worker-class" identity to unite. Your todays' employer can go bankrupt tomorrow and join you as employee, while your colleague might start his own business the day after.
And if you don't like the way you being bossed around (while being paid for it), you can quit your job and look for a new one whenever you like.

Capitalism is the individuals freedom to control their own labor.
Communism takes this freedom away.

This is a well formed question, and the answer is no.

What makes you feel nostalgic is not necessarily the best way to raise a child, full stop. The two aren’t related in any way.

Freedom, happiness, health, education, these things are important, preserving traditions is not.

Landon Peterson
Landon Peterson

“Democracy” comes from the Greek words Demos, meaning “the people”, and Kratia, meaning “the rule”. It literally means “the rule of the people.” When anarchists use the word democracy, they are not invoking systems of western style representative democracy, which are technically “polyarchy” in the political science jargon. We mean the rule of the people. This is why the American anarchist Edward Abbey declared “anarchy is democracy taken seriously.”

Anarchism absolutely does employ democracy. “Might makes right” is actually what we have right now. Don’t believe me? Walk into a grocery store and try to get what you need to survive without turning over adequate pieces of green paper, or try living in a house without turning over pieces of green paper to your landlord. You will find out very quickly men with guns and clubs and tasers and mace will show up to do violence to you to force you to comply with the rules of the established order.

As for the rest, maybe instead of straw manning anarchist arguments you go learn about what anarchists are actually advocating.

Except in practice, none of what you say is true. Otherwise, we would all choose to be rich business owners.

“The only difference as compared with the old, outspoken slavery is this, that the worker of today seems to be free because he is not sold once for all, but piecemeal by the day, the week, the year, and because no one owner sells him to another, but he is forced to sell himself in this way instead, being the slave of no particular person, but of the whole property-holding class.” ~ Friedrich Engels

It's called getting older. If you're under 25 and not a liberal, you're heartless. If you're over 25 and not a conservative you're brainless.

The liberal media has been more aggressive now than ever before. As an educator I've noticed a jump in single mother households and children on benefits that wear 300 dollar sneakers. I've noticed that people are way more sensitive than they used to be. I've noticed that universities have become hindrances to knowledge. I've realized people just say diversity is a strength without really thinking about what it means. There's no going back but we can definitely choose the things we don't want to go away.

A thriving democracy needs participation. Voter turnout is horrible and people are looking for one person or a government to solve their problems more than ever before. Enlightenment philosophy is forgotten.

Did I say it was easy?
Opening a business takes effort, the willingness to take a risk (cause no one pays you, your living suddenly depends on the success of your business directly), and often the swallowing of the bitter pill that is to take a loan you will pay off for some time.

Renting your labor away is a secure way of having a decent life.
Renting anothers labor to create something bigger with it yourself is a risky way that either leads towards living on the streets, or several stories above it.

And yes, engles is not false in his assumption.
But then again, we have worker unions, work-safety-policies, minimum vacation days, pension, healthcare, and what not else to make renting your labor away a pretty lucrative deal for YOU.

I cited the agreement language, not their system of democracy. Read what was actually written, please.

Anarchy is also Greek. Literally translated, it means “without rulers”. It does not mean “no authority”. You can simultaneously advocate against hierarchal relationships of power while advocating for a highly organized democratic society. It is not any kind of contradiction. I suggest you actually read up on anarchism rather than being dismissive from a place of ignorance.

No, you're not weird. Conservative or Liberal alike doesn't really matter. There are no real sides, only haves and have nots.

I fully agree that there needs to be some sort of traditional values system in place, and there was, but it was skewed.

Morality has gone the wayside and its not due to generational beliefs. The government has been playing us into what we've become for years, and we've allowed it.

This is why we live in a world where we can't have boys and girls. No, now we have asexual, nonbinary, gender fluid people who love sitting around screaming about their rights. I could go on, but I'm not about to start arguing.

Voting =/= Democracy

Democracy may employ voting as a means of getting things done, yes, but it is not the be-all-end-all of democracy.

“What is consensus?
Consensus is a decision-making process that works creatively to include all persons making the decision. Instead of simply voting for an item, and having the majority of the group getting their way, the group is committed to finding solutions that everyone can live with. This ensures that everyone’s opinions, ideas and reservations are taken into account. But consensus is more than just a compromise. It is a process that can result in surprising and creative solutions — often better than the original suggestions.” -theanarchistlibrary.org/library/seeds-for-change-consensus-decision-making

Brandon Morales

false.
if "veryone is the ruler" no one is.
And no, never did greek philosphers advocate for anarhy. They merely described it.
What they propagated for was direct democracy, where the entire given demos (the population of a city) was allowed to participate in an open forum where ideas were publicly discussed and then VOTED on, to be ENFORCED by the organs at place.

in ancient greek democracy, the entire demos directly controlled the policies after which they were policed, enforced by the governmental organs at place, like the city guard, appointed judges and officially appointed bureaucrats.

Anarchy is the antithesis to ancient greek democracy, as it is the anti-thesis for every other form of enforcement as well.
It is the absence of societal structure.
Deal with it.

Jacob Young

At the chore of anarchist value is the belief that power corrupts what is otherwise good. Remember, it's a philosophy, not a political stance. Anarchists believe that without systems that allow physically weak individuals to hold undo power, the individual will respect the other individual and be willing to work together, or apart, for the preservation of the self and this comes naturally in all humans.

Carter Turner

Well this current divide was much worse during this election due to Trump. Even when Obama was running there wasn't nearly this much divide. No matter if you support/hate Trump you have to admit that he is incredibly polarizing and has likely contributed greatly to the divide you mentioned. Its part of the reason Russia really wanted him in office, it is their plan to grow this divide and destabilize the US

They will be made of for being different. You are literally dooming your kid because of your selfish personal values. But I'm the retard.

They can't get out of their jobs, won't make way in congress, senate, and now the White House, and are still running the fucking show, after half a motherfucking century, and they aren't about to relinquish control until they're in the dirt.

By then the Gen Xer's, the first generation to live shorter lives than their parents due to those very same Boomers dictating their lifestyle, will die out, and hand the entire country all at once to the generation of vidya playing basement dwellers with no life experience and no on the job training.

Lol keep repeating the word fallacy if it makes you feel like you are making a point, but hey, maybe try to actually point out what a fallacy is. Stop being a defensive cunt and actually think about what I am saying and what my argument is. Do I think that all kids should have phomes? No, I think its fucked up and killing the beauty of childhood, while also forcing them to mature younger. Its fucked. But the reality is even today tons of kids have smartphones and tablets and all that shit. By the time your kid would be 10-13 years old I garuntee 99% of kids are going to have phones on them, and will be using them constantly. What is your kid going to do when all the kids pull out their phones and start playing games together? When everyone is showing their favorite videos? What about when they form a groupchat on some social media app and your kid can join because he doesnt have a phone. What about when they ask him why he doesnt have a phone. You kid will be an outcast, he will be made fun of, he will miss out on many of the things his classmates are participating in without him. And what happens then? "Why don't I have a phone?" he asks. This is when your kid will start to hate you.

But hey no, your right. This is just a fallacy, thats not how the world works. Have fun dooming your kid so that you could feel better about yourself you goddamn moron

Bunch of willfully ignorant, aggressive, selfish apes clawing each others fucking eyes out any chance they get, now pacified by punitive law, televised displays of tribalism and baited by consumerism.

It's not important that the way of life in any sense be American.

Now though, a lot of Western values that used to be present in Europe have been abandoned, and America is also under attack, but our strong individualist nationalist independent streak made sure we chose Trump over Orwellian communist jihad.

having constant access to social interaction without consequence hasn't seemed to help most people manage their ability to be social

Imagine a retarded leftist who failed economics because they rioted during the lectures and exam trying to explain capitalism to an alien:

Imagine someone intelligent explaining capitalism to an alien:
"We each do whatever work we chose, but the value of that work is determined by how much demand there is for that work. We use tokens of exchange called "money" to track how much of that demand we've met, and can in turn offer that money as a bounty for providing the goods and services that we demand. It's effectively a barter system of free exchange, but the exchange tokens mediate the need of establishing fetch quest trade chains to complete our barter arrangement. The value of the money handles that. It works so well that we even pay people who are worthless and don't produce anything, because for some people giving them free money makes the giver feel better, and for others there's just a high enough demand for making the unproductive people shut up and stop whining about their own self-imposed worthlessness."

no shit, and as an added side bonus, beating your wife & kids was no biggie, since you knew you were free from consequence. Sure, if you caused permanent damage you could get in some trouble for not keeping what goes on in your own home private, but as long as you abused your own family behind closed doors, it was all good. Not like lawyers would work for women without their husbands permission anyway. Ahhh the good old days. Such a grand old time.

Hell, we have traps now, if the idea of fucking a sexdoll offends you. Men are better than women even at being women.
The only thing we need women for is as wombs. But underpopulation isn't promising to be a problem any time soon, and if it was men would invent artificial wombs.

Quoting Churchill
on anything other than how to drive the world into war

Yyyeah Churchill was an amazing thinker, a regular wise philosopher. The point you're trying to make, is that it's normal for people to become conservative about their better years as they get older. Problem with it is that it doesn't mean you're making smart decisions for the good of anyone other than you and your own fucked up interests at that point though. The fact you chose Churchill shows you have no idea how quickly Churchill became a liability rather than an asset after the war, full of terrible ideas that fucked England up beyond repair.

This is the reality that the weak don't want to consume. That poor choices bear poor results. This is why I'm sexist. I don't think women who take no responsibility for their actions, should have en equal voice in society. You either take responsibility and consider yourself an equal, playing the same game as the rest of us, or you don't and you forfeit your voice.

It's the non-forfeiture and even amplification of that voice that deteriorates the concept of personal responsibility and it's a manipulation of our desire to feel sympathy for these people that perpetuates the inevitable collapse of it all.

What if the guy actually was normal for all that time, and then something traumatic happened to him, resulting in him starting to beat his wife? Her fault?

Bad idea for the individual, but allow yourself to consider the concept as being better for the whole of society. More consideration definitely went into getting married and without a doubt, more commitment to the marriage and making things work.

Only upon the charred, burnt bodies will we march into paradise.

What if an asteroid falls out of the sky and kills us tomorrow?

We can discuss anomalies on an individual basis, but that doesn't and shouldn't change the arena we play in.

Because it’s objectively better for people to be cooperative instead of combative

Isaiah Diaz

So you are so concrete in your beliefs about how these relationships work that you would consider that an anomaly?

Brayden Jackson

Objectively better is some strong wording, I would relax with that. And I would argue that very few people prefer cooperatism to combativeness when personal gain is involved..

I don't hold firmly to anything. What I do or don't believe (which is literally nothing) does't effect my ability to understand that a spending 5 years of my life with another person should give me a strong understanding of who that person is and if I missed a warning sign in that 5 year period, I wasn't looking hard enough.

What if your wife cheated on you after 5 years? That must mean it was your fault for not recognizing she would do that, correct?

Why do you keep invoking Greek style democracy.
because you started it, dipshit.

Calling it “the rule of the people” is not redefinition, though.
did I ever imply so?

Go read Kroptokin, Bakunin, Proudhon, Goldman, Abbey, and come back and tell me your thoughts on anarchism afterward once you have a grasp on what you are actually talking about.
Been there, done that, your talking point about anarchism is still schizophrenic.

Actually as you age you gain the experience to know that change usually means that someone found a way to fuck things up even worse.

not weird but dumb, everything changes so stop pretending that any sort of static view of social norms is possible. Grow up and face reality

James Howard

Understanding that some of these fucks are screwed in the head doesn't make you conservative.

But if you feel you are democrat and don't like the way the extremist are taking the party, do something about it in the Democratic party.

The same with the Republican party.

Too many idiots running the show on both sides.

Cameron Gray
Cameron Gray

You're probably not a conservative at all, just a reactionary.

Many people claim to be conservatives, and claim that they wnt to preseve a "speciffic way of American life" but in reality they carry water for the Republican party whose primary goal is to pass financial policies that are completely opposite of what existed when America rose to prominence in the world.

Fake conservatives love invoking images of days gone by, yet they have completely abandoned the taxes upon the rich, and the robust union protections that made the rise of the middle class and consumerism and world-class infrastructure possible in the first place.

You are probably a complete stooge who has been manipulated by propaganda.

Dominic Russell
