  1. A matter of complete and total subjective opinion - and one I - and a lot of others - don't agree with, but another matter of opinion - especially with strong partisan viewpoints and tensions - you state as absolute, irrefutable, objective fact that you feel "annoyed," or, "angered," when people call out as, "opinion," and, "partisan." This, too, is typical of the degenerating and crumbling in any integrity political atmosphere and zeitgeist, and is NOT a good thing at all. And this moreso cements my point, and doesn't at all refute it. And, not to fast on not responding to me. You have work to do as a moderator, that you've been neglecting for several days. I insist on responses to - and action on - the other two parts I've addressed in my post, which deal with your job as a site moderator and administrator - two issues you've been avoiding for days, and has been deliterious on your reputation and integrity to do so
  2. I don't tend to watch videos by YouTube hacks and third tier pundits of any sort at the best of times - I find them irritating - and I'm highly doubting such individuals would convince me such inappropriate zeitgeist neologisms that water down the credibility of the discourse, should "magically," gain validity and respectability - especially if it's Jordan Peterson, and especially if he's commenting on such a neologism with, "Marxist," in it. Also, a certain poster who he and I are supposed to be avoiding conflict has once again made a laugh emote on a post of yours that's obviously once again laughing at the post of mine you're responding. This is the third or fourth times I've brought this up, and you seem to have done nothing, despite originally asked him sternly to end the laugh emotes - most of which been not only "not funny," but in many case inappropriate, unacceptable, and even disturbing to make a laugh emote at. As I have honoured my side for a while now, I am asking you again to make a stern - and be willing to apply consequences - if this keeps happening. Which brings me to the question - the very important and pivotal question - I made in the Game Feedback sub-forum you have been consistently IGNORING, whose answer is vitally to the future of this forum and moving forward, and the tenor thereof, and leaving old fights and baggage, and not having, "permanent scars," of past mistakes, biases, and abuses (or, in other cases, and other posters, undeserved graces by bias) built in by forum mechanisms into perpetuity. You're silence on the issue SEEMS to make your intentions here only seem bleak and untrustworthy, just so you know.
  3. You are correct, in retrospect. I was basing on an assumption that you were building on the idea of the thread-starter, which was more in line with what I was criticizing. It's an easy mistake to make, but still a mistake, and I apologize.
  4. Actually, not exactly the same. First, these national changes occur in a timeline 20 years from now - not in the immediate future. Also, the Western North American Federation is NOT the U.S. annexing Western Canada - both Western Canada and the Northwestern U.S. have EACH left, shortly prior, their parent nation centred in the wealthy, heavily-populated, highly-urbanized East, and formed a new nation together, with a mixture of Prairie/Heartland/Alaska Conservativism evolved in a new form from either's parent nation's brand with West Coast Progressivism/ Social Democracy and a Neo-Pioneer Libertarianism as the three main party lines, with some smaller ones. And, I don't recall addressing Australia or New Zealand in talking about your scenario. But I commend you in bringing this up, even though I already have a retort. It's a much more engaging and productive form of debate than a lot of what I, personally, deal with here, and is quite refreshing. Thank-you!
  5. Game or not, it seems more unlikely of an event than you seem to be insisting - and I live in Alberta, and that seems to be as nothing to you in standing in this discussion. Plus, the Canadian Conservative Party is more different, by a significant margin, than you might be led to believe. There are further-right-wing parties in Canada that are very close to the U.S. Republican Party - but they tend to be about as successful, electorally, as the Constitution Party is in the U.S. It may be a game, but it's the sort of game where at least of a veneer of real research and realism is highly respected - like the Age of Empires and Civilization series and their custom scenario communities are, as well. That is where I will leave it, and hope that parting argument has some impact on your further proceeding in this scenario design.
  6. Identity politics and a mixed economy are part of a, "Marxist culture?" This sounds like one of those ridiculous, disingenuous, derisive, nonsensical socio-political neologisms kicking around of late rather than a, "genuine," term. I'd rather avoid discussion descending into such superficial, zeitgeist-driven, unproductive, "quasi-terms," of dubious use or value at best.
  7. Karl Marx was a hard revolutionary economist and political iconoclast and gave culture a glancing side-note, at best, so I'm not sure what you mean, exactly.
  8. This was already done in the 1956 Winnipeg Declaration. You've long missed the memo. Or perhaps you're defining, "Marxist culture," by the standards of McCarthyist, corporate shill media pundit talking heads in the U.S. and their emulators in Canada, in which case you're almost certainly misusing the term grossly.
  9. The PPC and NDP are like oil and water, ideologically. And since, "nationalism," and, "populism," as I've pointed out several times in earlier threads, are not actually truly ideological, in and of themselves, but more, "frames," for any ideology other than the most moderate, establishment, or uninspired of stances on the political spectrum, and not tied to actual such stances or ideologies on the spectrum - left-to-right - themselves, these two elements wouldn't be enough at all to bond such clashing viewpoints and platforms.
  10. Sorry, exactly WHAT you're saying the NDP are a better fit for than the Conservatives isn't quite clear. And, have you read my very pivotal query in the Game Feedback sub-forum?
  11. @Anthony_270could you please answer this question? It actually ties into the sincerity and genuinity by you, and on the tenor of the site, when you say things like, "let's move forward," and imply old fights and old baggage should be left behind, in terms of discussion and conduct and such. This question is very much a more practical view of whether you're truly willing to ante up to that in a way - and a VERY important way - that can be judged in the very short-term. Please answer? Will "warning points that never expire," continue to hold such a hyperbolic, vindictive, and unproductive status, or will they, too, be moved on from?
  12. Or a very important part of George W. Bush's resume in 2000, unfortunately...
  13. Trudeau's far better of an alternative than soulless, snake of cold-hearted, disingenuous technocrat he replaced in 2015 (but perhaps just a friendlier, personal face - even if his facial grooming is not as high a priority), and better than the Harper 2.0 wannabe Scheer or the detached, out-of-touch, elitist, aristocratic plutocrat (sounds kind of like Romney's description) O'Toole, but I'm all for Singh Federally, and Notley Provincially, anyways. And Layton was the greatest PM Canada (sadly) never had. But, hey, at least in Canada, we get a choice other than the, "Partido Conservator," and, "Partido Liberal," (the name of the two beneficiary parties in the hard-rigged two-party electoral systems of the, "Turno Pacifico," in late 19th Century Spain, and the, "Pacto de Caballeros," in late 19th/early 20th Century Argentina and Columbia, which the Republican Party of the United States and the Democratic Party of the United States, respectively, pretty much also fill the role of.
  14. As unfortunate and depressing, and a bleak sign of the degenerating, vapidly sensationalist, and more-and-more without substance, American political zeitgeist, a likelihood as that may be, I still think my core complaint is the monomania of the main political topic. I think my big suggestion would be to vary political discussion significant, and not focus so monotonously on Trump and those directly in his circle and shadow.
  15. I think it's very obvious the "laugh," emote put on your post I'm quoting is not laughing at you, but at me, which has been a habit of that poster several times in the last few days, including at posts that are in no way, shape, or form "funny," and highly inappropriate and unacceptable to be laughing at. And since you have asked him to stop directing "laugh," emotes at me, and he has blatantly refused, I'd like you to consider this a formal complaint and deal with it SERIOUSLY. As for the issue at hand, I will re-address it when my patience has reset.
