Man, I never thought the Democrats would be able to find a nominee less in line with mainstream American culture than Obama, whose African father left him as an infant and who was raised in Indonesia by Asian Muslims, but against all odds, they've done it!

The daughter of a Jamaican father and Indian mother, Ms. Harris was born in Oakland and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area but spent her teenage years in Montreal after her parents’ divorce.

Both of those stories sound almost quintessentially American to me??
Congrats to BKSheikah, who knows more about years than anyone else.

Many people are saying the DNC urged her not to run because she used to do a lot of orgies in SF, and photos likely exist.

no, YOU'RE mistaken that people who claim to be christians are automatically moral. their words and actions often suggest quite the opposite.

Looking at the pedophiles in the Catholic church, I do not even remotely believe that.

nice example of why religion is such a dangerous brainwashing tool. you're able to recognize the problem of inequality, but you're so blinded by your love of christianity that you're doing nothing to fight the problem. "conservatives claim to be christians, so it can't possibly be THEIR fault that there's so much inequality and poverty in the world! i have to make up an enemy to blame this on! wait, i've got one: globalists!"

That's your own projection.

ok, then why do you think conservatives are moral and virtuous by default, if not for their religion?

That's your own projection.


lol, this is the best response you have? "no u"?

We were talking about the richest corporations in the world, all of them are decisively globalist, i.e. anti-conservative, and trying to push all kinds of degeneracy onto people so they can control them more easily. Let's not pretend otherwise, and let's not switch the topic.

Seeing as nothing in that quote of yours corresponds to my own views at all... I get it that you are misguided enough to hate religion, but do not bring it into this out of nowhere. Are you really pretending globalists don't exist or something?

Do not replace "conservative values" with "conservatives." We know damn well half of GOP claim they're "conservative," but work to advance globalism nonetheless.

That whole post is completely lacking in substance. Just “it’s globalism because it is.”

But I want to respond to your post to Metal and get serious, without any underlying distaste for social politics from either side. You claim that globalism is a result of powerful corporate interests attempting to create a singular global government to make it easier for their greed to go unregulated. Okay. I will admit that is ONE possibility. But would you consider the following?

As it stands, the world has dramatically globalized (note, globalization is merely discussing the fact that modern technology, be it transportation or communication, has interconnected the world to a large degree. Globalization =/= globalism.). As a result of this interconnectivity, large corporations have far more options for how to maximize profits from their business. Given that distance is no longer the massive hurdle it once was, there is less need for “closeness” to be a factor in setting up shop, at least not on the front end of things.

With this in mind, we come to my argument. Corporate economics are a zero-sum game. A corporation only really needs to set up their factory or headquarters or whatever in one location, so they’re going to pick a location that offers them the most economic benefit. This gives the corporations a LOT more leverage and negotiating power when dealing with the places they’re seeking to establish their base. Countries or states or cities all want that corporation to take up residence with them, because that brings jobs and it brings in tax revenue. Thus, it becomes a bidding war. What location can offer the corporation the sweetest deal. No regulations? A low tax rate? Maybe even a monetary gift?

I’ll use a contemporary example. Amazon is a massive corporation, but when they were looking to establish a new headquarters in America, suddenly delegations from around the country flew in to pitch their case. It became a race to the bottom: who could give the most to this multi-national corporation, just to ensure that what comparably minimal benefits went to THEM and no one else? Hell, there’s a reason so much manufacturing is done in poor countries that need the money corporations bring.

You say that globalism benefits corporations because it allows the relaxation of ANY sort of check on their power. I’d argue however, that this is EXACTLY how things work under a nationalist system. With all the different nations isolated from one another (often viewing each other as competition), they become ripe for the picking. Sure, you can take a moral stand and say “no, you’re gonna follow our rules or you’re outta here”, but then they’ll call that bluff and find a sweeter deal someplace else. Again, these are extremely rich entities who have more mobility that any singular location, and countries need their influx of money far more than corporations need a particular country’s land.

I’d argue that globalism is actually more detrimental to corporate power if anything. With everyone set apart as isolated units, as you pointed out, there are hundreds of sets of rules and regulations...so the corporation can choose the one they like best. But if you have a wider form of oversight, perhaps from a more overarching, global entity, then at least those regulations can become more uniform to the point where corporations can’t abuse them any longer.


Since Vlado is bringing up corporations and globalism again.

Ben pwns the globalists, as usual:

https://i.imgtc.com/ZwIzRkE.jpg

Big corporations have HR departments that set policy for employee hiring, training, and education as well as indoctrination into corporate ‘culture.’ Yes, each company has a stated culture, which are all pretty much the same.

The HR departments tend to be populated by social justice activists and politically correct types. Their job is to make sure employees fall in line. This is achieved by fear. Companies will not tolerate racist, sexist, or otherwise intolerant behavior. Anyone caught telling an off-color joke by the water cooler could be fired. A male employee who compliments a female employee on her appearance could find himself in big trouble.

To prevent such trouble, the HR departments train employees on proper etiquette, behavior, and other matters that’s really nothing more than common sense. Employees get lectured about the company’s desire for a healthy, productive work environment with a welcoming atmosphere. The two words most favored by corporate HR departments are ‘diversity,’ and ‘inclusion.’ These words are used with a fervent religiosity. People ‘of color,’ ‘the LGBQT community, the disabled and so forth are to be treated with exceptional tolerance and kindness.

White males? Not so much, because they are usually seen as potential transgressors of company policy.

It’s all so much theater. Adult workers for the most part do not need to be drilled in common courtesy and how to treat others. It comes from within and pressuring people to learn stuff they’ve known since their school days seems silly.

Companies delight in such mandates, though. They know their employees will work hard for their pay because well-paying jobs are hard to come by. So they ratchet up the culture, which becomes even more intrusive. They often also increase the workload and hours. Some companies even tell employees how to ‘play.’ Yes, they insist their workers have smiles on their faces and songs in their hearts while slaving away. To the myriad vice presidents and MBAs running the show, it increases what they call work ‘engagement. Employees with cynical, odd, or grouchy personalities–even if they do their jobs well–are seen by management as heretics. They receive bad reviews and are hounded out. Facebook has a cult-like company culture that forbids conservatives.

Regardless, it almost always boils down to power and money, which usually leads to corruption. Employers have power over their employees who work for money and those leaders just can’t resist the power of tinkering with their employees’ minds.

Apparently that’s not enough anymore. Now global companies want to influence the behavior of their customers. Gillette came out with a commercial hectoring men for being too aggressive.

We need to tone down our toxic masculinity, we’re told. NIKE hired Colin Kapernick and subjected potential customers to lectures on race, political correctness, and virtue signaling. PayPal kicked off people who didn’t align well to their own political correctness. Patreon did the same thing.

This is not a good trend. We aren’t their employees—we’re customers and we have a choice. We need to stop patronizing companies who patronize and scold us with their unctuous, politically correct advertising.

—Ben Garrison
