Greeks/Romans believed we were made of atoms and tended to think all forms of creationism were ridiculous. Lucretius believed in a kind of proto-darwinian natural selection around 100 BC. The pagans were relatively advanced empiricists. After that the Christian virus was worse than the black death since it triggered the Dark Ages. You don't get to hear much about it because the church propaganda has been so strong. Edward Gibson's book the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire is a classic and it ctiticized Christianity for turning the people away from Earthly affairs after Emperor Augustine, even as the barbarians were at the gate. Christianity fermented violence and strife from intolerance towards the rich and educated pagans and all literary work by pagans, plunging people into dogma and ignorance, and hastening the destruction of the Roman empire. Edward's defining book was censored when the Catholic church added it to the Index Librorum Prohibitorum.
If there had been no Christianity/monotheism by now we would have cures for cancer, genetically engineered cat girls, massive VR video games with centuries of programming, huge automated factories on the moon, other colonys throughout the solar system and sent a generational mother ship would be half way to Alpha Centauri. I'll never forgive Christianity for depriving me of Alfheim Online and Chobits in my bedroom.
>>17268 >doesn't blame Judaism when it was the jew favoring emperors who led Rome down the path of destruction You need to bone up on your Roman history and realize Gibbon (not Gibson) considered the jews as subhuman destroyers of the Roman Empire.
VR will have the same deafening effects on spirituality than cracker christ had. It all has to do with worshipping the physical. We dont need moonbases if we learn how to travel the universe in our minds by decalcifying our pineal glands and rejecting what the western paradigm of materialism has programed us to.
>>17688 VR comes with massive consequences such as the destruction of retinal cells (you'll see increasing amounts of cornea problems, and sicknesses associated to motion sickness).
VR will NOT solve any economic problems we still face. So all the problems of REAL LIFE remain de-facto (which could easily disrupt your VR lifestyle in the long-term). You can't live without food and water and proper sanitation no matter how much VR'ing you do. Your still human and you still need basic essentials to live, period.
I'm not falling for this kind of kikery, its better to live in the real world and be properly prepared than have the some grand delusion that an advanced technology is going to change all of de-facto reality and give us some kind of free utopia in forever land.
When you graduate high school, go to college and graduate and can't name one fucking single country on the map... but an 11 year old can name numerous... you know your so-called "educational system" is one big fat SCAM. This video is going into my collection of history videos for sure.
I could name about 5 or 6 countries myself, yet I never went to college.
Who cares, that's dumb trivia. What school needs to teach is not rote learning, but abstract critical thinking. You can look up names easily, but higher order thinking like recognizing cognitive fallacies is a better mark of a developed intelligence.
>>17687 The average millennial I know who goes to college has a menial wage job working to pay all their debts back off (some who go back moving in with their parents). When they are not working they are too busy playing video games or jerking off in front of their gadgets. Ironically the ones who are into plumbing, electrical maintenance or construction make much more money than the ones who ended up going to college. You can tell the difference when you talk to these folks too: much more interested in the real world and aware about obvious problems that plague society today. Unlike the college graduates who are more concerned about their weed supply being confiscated from the cops or hooking up with another slut. All I got to say is cognitive fallacies seem to be a more rampant problem from the "so well educated" types, ironic as that may sound.
What is so great about white culture? Whites in America are boring people who go to BBQs, they cook boring food without spices, or unhealthy shit like jello salads and TV dinners. They don't like school or traveling abroad, and they have innane conversations, because they're shallow ignoramuses without curiousity. They're only friends with you when it's convenient, but if you move they just don't keep in touch the way other races do. If you can befriend an asian or a Mexican they'll be your friend for life.
Although I don't want Mudslimes here I don'f see what is so noble about white culture either, and I don't see a reason to be excited about white idebtity politics. I like western government, but there are better cultures than white culture, and all things equal I would probably rather befriend someone with dadker skin because they're more interesting and have more to teach me.
>>17681 I'll tell the only way of moving forward, whether you agree with this or not: we need to stop all subsidy and bailouts, period. Any insolvent institution, insolvent agency, insolvent bank, insolvent corporation will be forced into bankruptcy. If they can't handle their finances then they deserve to go bankrupt. Period. Yes, this will likely collapse most of our 'economy' today, because nearly everything has become corrupted and debt dependent. We need lay off the bureaucrats and force them to work for a living, hard productive work or end up on skid row. We need to reduce taxes on a massive scale (we need the hard working people and fiscally solvent businesses making money: good profits, good incomes and good salaries). We need to audit the Federal Reserve system and take care of that massive FRAUD and its ponzi scheme operations, all Federal Reserve shareholders should be imprisoned for financial terrorism and treason (grand collusion to plunder and dispossess the United States of America and its citizenry). We need to amend mandatory term limits for ALL politicians and make lobbying/bribery of any kind a felony crime. This means no more career politicians. We need to train newer generations how to manufacture, produce, mine and refine among other trades. We need to become more self-sufficient and promote faming, ranching, marketing and delivery of goods and services to serve our local communities. Rebuild America from the ground up and never let the same mistakes happen ever again. Outsourcing industry of any kind should be prohibited in the future with a consequence of a 200% tariff on all their goods for any company who outsources.
>>17683 Truth is America is full of blue pilled retard people who just need to survive and have no time to help you accomplish this, they have families social lives and tv to watch and the need to eat so much they get fatter. There really is nothing left to do but burn it to the ground and reinstate race wars and let natural selection do the talking. We also need a new church of God that doesn’t force creationism but mearly suggests it is plausible by God’s creative nature. Our current churches have strayed too far from their intentded purpose, perhaps we should even reinstate the Judges system, fascism is too expensive, a flat 10% tax is all we should need.
>>17700 We don't need 'race wars', what is needed is an economic collapse, mass filings of bankruptcy: no bailouts and then putting enough pressure on the government to default on ALL debts (if they'd even have a choice at that point). This would collapse the central banking system and ALL insolvent institutions/corps, while relieving financial pressure on the public. And remember: once a financial collapse happens there is no more power grid (it won't be funded), there is no more greedy lifestyle that keeps the masses complaint and lazy anymore: all that luxury would go away instantly!
This will not come without consequences and mass unrest. That is 100% sure to happen. Instead of a 'race war' or another civil war we'd have people refusing to pay taxes, squatting in their homes with their guns and many others taking to the streets of Washington DC also armed. It would force the collapse of the currently insolvent and corrupted system.
Americans will start to realize they need to re-build everything from the ground up again. And they'll be forced to do it, or they'll remain like Africa or Mexico. Those that refuse will be snubbed and won't have the means to barter or obtain goods or services. So then comes a mass surge of farming and ranching again. Those who have skills will teach them to the local youth, the youth will start to fix and re-build things. Construction will develop. Plumbing will be required, so will electricians and mechanics. Resources must be mined domestically and will be. And on and on and on. Things will be much like the mid-1800s all over again, and we'll just repair and re-construct everything and rely on bartering and new production of resources for a while. It will be tough but necessary for our future generations.
>>17704 >>17700 The most ironic part of all is our politicians and government could easily avoid this IF THEY DESIRED TO. They simply have to stop the subsidies and stop the bailouts. Let those who are insolvent go bankrupt. Get out of the wars in the Middle East, stop paying trillions of dollars on wars! Instead, use a chunk of that money to invest in development and maintenance of current infrastructure in the US! Duh. This will knock out the leaches of society while encouraging and incentivizing actual capital production and construction. (A very disturbing thought for those Marxist commies, I understand. Remember the Soviet Union collapsed from insolvency due to overwhelming military budgets and wars - as CAN happen to us too).
Race wars and civil wars will do nothing but further our damn problems to begin with. Exactly what AntiFA and their undercover Federal co-opted "alt-right" supremacist comrades would desire. I'm not buying into any of their bullshit! Just more D&C tactics against the stupid masses.
Also, Seth Rich who worked at the DNC was the one who leaked the DNC emails to Wikileaks (as Wikileaks has already bluntly admitted). Seth Rich was a disgruntled tech guy working for the DNC who supported Bernie Sanders and was angry when Clinton stole the primaries from him. Since Seth Rich has access to the DNC servers and knew how corrupted the DNC really was, he decided to leak the emails to Julian Assange. Most the idiots on this board probably don't know this because all they listen to is mainstream media lies and fake narratives. Sad.
>>17692 I don't buy the whole 'qanon' hype, but I will say they not only did the FBI totally ignore her email scandle as Secretary of State, they also completely ignored the Uranium One scandle which was much more damning and highly treasonous if the accusations are true. Note that this was even reported by more mainstream news sites and yet they still ignored it.
>>17693 90% of the mainstream media is pure hyperbole and fear-mongering. The political bias is so extreme and blatantly obvious only the most ignorant and brainwashed cannot detect it. If the bias was ever reversed the radical left would be smashing their TV sets with hammers.
>>17678 Elon Musk is just another subsidized failure plaguing the US and making us look even more stupid than we actually deserve credit for. If it were not for his Big Govt pals he would have been bankrupted long ago. The free market hates people like this because these big tech geeks are sooooo entitled milking off the taxpayer's teets, as you can see by all his tantrums. The reality is Thailand's Navy did the right thing, they told this guy they don't need help from his company (and clearly did not as all kids were rescued).
If you must refer back to name-calling like a 10 year old without pointing out why I'm wrong then you just lost the debate. So ironically I am not the moron here.
>I want Christians to stop being Christians
Good luck. Christians live all over the world and that's just a proven fact. Poland is mostly Christian, Russia is mostly Christian, China is 1/4th Christian, US is 2/3rd Christian, Mexico is mostly Christian (most don't even know that but its actually true, look at all the necklaces with crosses these people wear, ask them about what they think of abortion too).
32% of the world's population is considered to be Christian, about half of all Christians live in just 10 countries. The top three are the United States, Brazil, and Mexico:
Then there is the fact that Christianity is NOT just one religion. There are so many denominations out there that believe different things or interpret the Bible in different ways. See link above on that too.
>>17670 You back up your simplistic, overly broad and bias accusations with absolutely no proof and no facts. This is simply another extreme bias against a group of people you likely no nothing about. Go ahead and hate, slander and ridicule your way out of this one but in the end it makes no sense and there is nothing you are going to do about the world's 32% Christian population as billions of Bibles are exchanging hands every single year.
Funny that all I hear is Christian bashing. What about Jews and Muslims? Are they exempted from your religious bias and if so, for what reason would that be?
>>17633 If its your boss or co-workers there is only so much you can do, and you can't tell your boss to "fuck off" unless you are willing to be fired on the spot. So the best thing is to try to ignore them, consider the fact they don't really matter, the end goal is for YOU to survive and make a living. If they piss you off, sometimes it is better to walk away and snub them whether or not it pisses them off. The main thing you have to be concerned about is your boss, not your co-workers.
As far as your grandpa, you should try getting that off your mind. What does it matter if he's going to die soon (or already dead)? It doesn't matter.
The way I keep my sanity as a total jackass myself is this thought: Justice exists and its called DEATH, and ain't no mother fucker on the planet can escape that. We're all fucking dying, every single fucking one of us. To me that brings a big fat smile to my face.
>>17635 No problem. Take no offense to my edgy attitude, at times my attitude goes off the rails and I use a lot of profanity in hostile manner. Its an ugly habit I picked up long ago likely dealing with similar problems your experiencing working with jerks.
By the way, I like the art in the OP. I wish there was a better quality picture of that, I'd use it as wallpaper for my desktop.
>>17646 No roll playing going on here, I was simply responding to the OP about my views, and that is to get over it. People are assholes, it is human nature many of us do not get along very well, so why sulk about it? Who gives a flying backwards shit what other people think about you? The only thing that should matter to us is survival and making sure we ourselves as individuals are comfortable and happy. I once cared what people thought about me when I was younger too, but that changed as I got a little older and became more independent. Avoiding people that piss you off does wonders because you suddenly realize "wow, I don't even need them in my life, so why give a shit what they think about me?" Plus the fact their fate will end up the same is poetic justice sent from God.
Reality check: Russia is a nuclear power, and they have a very strong military. Why should we continue pushing war hawking propaganda against Russia? No one would win such a war. The US is completely insolvent as far as debt (although still enjoys its global reserve currency status while it lasts), Russia actually paid most their national debts back off and are hoarding valueable assets like gold and silver. So which side could outlast military expenditures during a hot war? Are we closer to China than Russia is? Not so much today. China is a nuclear power too, with great relationships with Russia. So who stands to benefit from this endless war hawking? Not the average American citizen, or the average Russian citizen either. We need to stop the dangerous rhetoric. It could end up with the US becoming totally isolated or even worse: another world war. Are you game for that?
General Wesley Clark Admits Wars Were Already Planned, Seven Countries In Five Years MP4 [see first video]
"This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir."
This was 10 days after 9-11, and most of these countries had NOTHING to do with 9/11, not even with the mainstream media's "official" narrative!
WHISTLEBLOWER: 'The Greater Israel Project' Explained by Ken O'Keefe (US Marine) MP4 [see second video]
The rest of America needs to wake the hell up, someone is pulling the strings. Who stands to benefit from all these wars? Has anyone here heard of the "Greater Israel Project?" If you watch these videos you'll start to understand what exactly has been going on all these years.
Warning: if you are a neo-con war hawk, pro-Zionist or simply a brainwashed leftytard who only believes the US mainstream media and takes their every word for gold, you are likely beyond hope and will not be able to critically think for yourself so you can just ignore this, as well as the whole thread.
>>17629 I question why we would really have to go after Lebanon itself. They seem like the least Muslim Muslims.
>Lebanon is a parliamentary democracy that includes confessionalism, in which high-ranking offices are reserved for members of specific religious groups. The President, for example, has to be a Maronite Christian, the Prime Minister a Sunni Muslim, the Speaker of the Parliament a Shi’a Muslim, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Eastern Orthodox. That's /kc/ tier if I do say so myself. I get that there are were Hamas sympathizers. Okay, that's probably why. Lebanon, Syria, the Sudan and Jordan have all kicked Hamas out so they're taking it easy on em. Seems like Qatar filled a gap though but time for the final domino, Iran seems to be coming.
>>17648 It's not about killing Muslims. It's about the Zionists powers in Israel trying to undermine other nationalist powers in the Middle East, so they can further concur land and expand Israeli territory. They do it by weakening nation states via wars which WE fight. The US military are a bunch of lapdogs for Israeli conquest.
They don't like Hamas because Hamas is the only terrorist organization that will actually kill Jews and has the nerve to wage a war against Israel. They openly call out Zionism, unlike most other terror organizations (which are really controlled opposition in towelhead land).
>>17650 The key thing is they want the region destabilized as much as possible or not fervently muslim because that's the only thing that seems to bring out any sort of patriotism in the arab countries. If they're banded together as some loose confederation of like minded nations it makes Israel's job harder.
My thought is this: GOOD RIDDANCE! Go infect another floating rock in space you entitled, subsidized pieces of shit. I hope their rockets run out of fuel before they can get back to Earth as they drift helplessly into space and fucking die!
>>17518 Charleston and the "alt right" are government psyops and provocateurs with the FBI, one leader with a Department of Defense security clearance. Don't fall for the D&C (divide and conquer) bullshit, this had nothing to do with the average Trump supporter just like Antifa riots have nothing to do with the average Hillary supporter.
Stop being so gullible and bias. One way to take your head out of your ass would to be stop trusting the corporate mainstream media. They lie, they lie, they fucking lie.
>>17523 I'm glad your listening to some alternative viewpoints. I'm more conservative on most issues - not all issues - but many and I can tell you conservatives like myself are not the "alt right", that was some kind made up spin by the corporate media that 'very conveniently' evolved into a supremacist movement whos learders have very questionable ties with the US federal government (think COINTELPRO back in the day, only more modern psyops).
Regarding Trump's IQ, thats very difficult to figure out without some kind of personalized testing. He would have to publicize his records for anyone to really know. Trump speaks to the public in a very repetitive mundane manner for a reason, as most Americans have the attention span of a goldfish these days because of the extremely fast flicker rates of their gadgets and TV sets (yes, this is real, viewing higher flicker rates lowers attention spans over time and they've done scientific studies on this since the 1960s).
>>17518 The difference is that Trump and his supporters knew they didn't have mainstream support and accepted that. Clinton and her supporters were in an echo chamber where she was totally going to win a landslide victory because all women are feminists at heart and black people loved her and shit. When that didn't happen they just pushed the identity politics groupthink narrative harder.
>>17623 >Clinton and her supporters were in an echo chamber where she was totally going to win a landslide victory because all women are feminists at heart and black people loved her and shit. When that didn't happen they just pushed the identity politics groupthink narrative harder.
Agreed. Do you think they can reclaim Congress with the same strategy? I'm guessing if enough of Trump's supporters don't show up and vote this next election it may be possible they can pull the same D&C tactics off this time around.
I don't even consider myself "republican" but I could never vote for the democrats just because you take a look at all the cities and states they have controlled over the years and every single one literally turns to impoverished hellholes. Highest taxes by far, most regulations by far, "no fun laws", highest poverty rates by far, higher crime rates, middle class homes cost an arm and a leg compared to more conservative states, mass insolvency problems, infrastructure not properly maintained and all the middle class workers just end up fleeing these states too. God damn them, seriously.
Former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff talked a little bit about the enormous invasion of privacy going on today and I agree with him on one major point: the root problem stems from individuals WILLINGLY giving up so much of their personal information and sharing too much of their personal information with others online.
I 100% disagree with him on what we can do to stop it. Chertoff seems to think we can rely on government to "protect" this data. I smell bullshit. NSA prism program ring a bell anyone? No, the government will not 'protect' your data, as they have been proven incompetent many times in that field with their own massive data leaks.
What we need to do is to simply stop hooking every damn thing up to the internet. We need to prioritize what kind of information we want out and that means adopting forward secrecy in many cases. You can start by purchasing a cheap VPN service or using Tor. You can reduce the information you put in your personal computer/laptop (via using an alias, having backups of your files in case hacked, storing sensitive files offline, keeping things you might not want others to see OFF an intenet-connected machine). You can make multiple email accounts, each for specific clients/services/transactions. You could purchase multiple used computers (much cheaper), each dedicated for various activities (online and offline). Stop using Winbot 10, use linux with wine instead. You can ditch those iPhones which are notorious for spying, replace them with an older flip phone or jitter bug. You can boycott all those big tech "smart" utilities, use older electronics. Never take the mark of the beast. Don't buy new digitized vehicles, stick to older models that have a lot of spare parts on the market (cheaper to maintain). As for social life, stop using social media! Abandon Facebooked and Instaspam and Snitchat and never look back. Meet up with your friends and talk face to face. The ONLY "social media" I have ever use is anonymous image boards and that's all I'll ever use.
>>17577 True, if you are of any mid to higher level target they'll try poising you if they can't dig dirt on you. I learned to actually cook recipes via older cookbooks and some youtube tutorials (plenty of good cooking channels on youtube). Cooking is really not that hard, you just carefully follow instructions and practice as you go. You'll get the hang of it in no time. Not only is cooking your own food often healthier, but cheaper (and safer).
Do not allow any electronic made after 2018 into your home and you better have some backup older electronics which don't have cameras and hidden mics. The Wall Street Journal just rubbed it in our face that this is going to become the norm very soon as they will be embedding tiny microphones in almost every single thing they can get away with. So anything digital beyond 2018: don't buy it.
And do avoid things like Echo, Siri and other crap created by the big tech monopolies. Make it clear to your family, relatives and friends you won't allow this around your presence (or at least in your own residence). It is all up to us to wake others up about how they are stealing our data and selling it all over the world and if we allow it we are stupid as a bunch of rocks.
>>17577 I agree cook your own food. Buy from the local farmer's market, or from the grocery store. Cook your own food in your own house. Don't order in. You'll save money and it's healthier. As you mentioned its easy to poison you once they know your pattern. You call for take out and they intercept the delivery or have someone planted there to poison your pizza.
I just meant to say don't do crime or talk about crime or personal things on the phone, no phone sex, no dirty talk, just innocuous facts, and lawful business. "Hey are we low on milk? Yeah? OK I'll pick some up, bye." Nothing about money, politics, drugs, crime, or sex. It's all being recorded digitally and stored, and if you become a "Person of Interest" they go through it and pin point all the incriminating stuff to use on you for blackmail, coercion, criminal indictment, front running etc.
Its too bad that they removed all of the public pay phones...If there were no cameras in the area you had a small level of anonymity (very small). We're going to have to look to an encrypted VOIP by tcp solution for a "Secure Line". Even then don't trust it too much.
Sqlite files are typically found installed with most chrome browsers. The great thing is you can delete these files after you close your browser, then restart the browser and they'll come back completely empty with 0 data each time.
On a typical linux OS you can find them stored here:
>>17611 Even considering the fact there are only a few posters there I like /news/ because it is one of the only boards where you can get routine updates of whats really going on in the world today. You can't find many boards like that. Remember: quality > quantity.
>>17519 probably this. i mean finalchans okay i guess, the userbase is just a tad too serious for me honestly. its not that bad tho, comfortable small chan. mostly decent posts. just not much of a sense of humor.
>>17530 >>17532 completely delusional imageboards are slow as hell and are getting less traffic every month. just look at a big board like 8chan/b, that place is really slow as hell. the only fast\heavily visited imageboard is the cancerous normie shithole 4chan
>>17534 >8chan/b, that place is really slow as hell. it gets up to 100 to 200 pph during peak hours thats plenty for an alt chan board. the alt chans were never fast, and they never will be. personally i cant stand lightning fast chans.
your metric for dead, dying, etc. is am i amused? am i getting enough pph? the truth is the alt chans are very much healthy. it was always like this, they arent meant to be lightning fast you cant have 1000s of pph and maintain any sort of quality. it dosent work that way.
there are plenty of them around and getting users. >slow as hell and are getting less traffic every month. slow isnt bad, fast imageboards are for adhd retards. there are more places active than ever, they do in fact have users. you might have rose tinted glasses for something you never expirenced. the alt chans were never this paradise of lightning fast good boards. i get the feeling you probably never left 4chan till the whole 8chan debecale. why? you repeat the same rhettoric that a lot of people from there do. >chans are dying >pph pph pph >someone amuse me i need it ive been doing this a long time. even been a global mod on a few alt chans. if you think their dead now, its cause you were never there in the first place and have no frame of refrence. keep saying your favorite phrase, chans are dying. the truth is your probably not even aware of a lot of the active communities. and since your so damned whiny, its not like id tell you about them either.
I myself prefer quality of content over quantity of users anyday. Whats better, having 200+ shitposters who post fast obnoxious gibberish like /sp/ or a dozen users who take their time to create worthy, informative content that leads to knowledge and thoughtful debate?
>>17528 Image boards are not dying, its the mindless consumers using corporate mainstream platforms (which monitor and censor 'thought crimes') who are the ones really dying, wasting away their lives trying to fit in with hive mind mentality with digital probes up their rectums.
>>17500 First it was the unmasking of the white cones of the KKK Then, it was the removal of the handkerchiefs on the faces of Antifa And now, it shall be the anonymous mask which conceals us all on this internet website and allows us to speak our minds without repercussion.
>>17513 The last time anyone tried to censor the internet it happened to be the EU (which failed) and before that? Oh yah, the FTC (under Obama, also failing). And now libtard faggots like you say I shouldn't be allowed to post here. Go fuck yourself.
As for this bill, if it ever passes you can thank the violent provocateurs funded and organized by the billionaire George Soros. Friends of the feds no doubt.
>>17461 There is one major problem with universal healthcare that must be considered, and it is a problem that exists all around the world, in every single nation: nothing is free. Every dime put into universal healthcare comes from taxpayers, the average citizen's wallet via taxes. So what this means is there is only finite amount of money to fund universal healthcare for all. This is why the "rationing" problem in the UK got so bad: https://archive.fo/uhmk6
Before you think I'm shilling the healthcare system we have in America, I'm not. Over here we have another problems: some people have money for treatment, and some do not. So some people get really good treatment and others get shit-quality care. It depends just how much money you can dish out.
The BEST healthcare option is really not to rely on the system at all. Its the freedom of being able to take care of your own health, to stay fit and eat healthy organic foods, to purchase the vitamins and supplements your body needs to maintain a healthy immune system. The freedom to filter or distill your water, to grow and cook your own foods, the freedom to reject harmful toxins whether inside vaccines or many industrial products.
Today I do not rely on any healthcare system, because I eat right, I exercise, I take my vitamins and supplements, I don't take vaccines, I don't drink water with fluoride, I make my own all-natural toothpaste and I defy Big Pharma unless something is absolutely mandated for an emergency. The last 5 times I've been sick over 17 years I've taken care of myself using natural herbal remedies and increased vitamin consumption. And I'm perfectly fine without the system.
No such thing as a perfect healthcare system, there will always be flaws. Adding government to the mix only solidifies corruption and incompetence too. What is more important than alleged cures is cancer/disease/sickness prevention but this relies on individual responsibility to take care of our bodies and make sure we get proper nutrition.
Doing the following can save you a lot of money in the long-term:
1) Avoid junk foods / fast foods / sugary beverages. 2) Eat more vegetables, free range chicken and grass fed beef are OK to eat. Deer, bison and lamb are OK to eat as well. Avoid pork (pork is extremely unhealthy). 3) Take Bio-Curcumin every day. Curcumin has a variety of health benefits, its an anti-inflammatory and has recently been proven to slow down the growth of cancer cells. This is like natural chemo without the hell. Its cheap and abundant too. 4) Make sure you get enough vitamins. Take a multi-vitamin supplement if needed. 5) Exercise! Go out and get some sun too. 6) Don't smoke, limit drinking, and avoid drugs. This includes most prescriptions such as SSRIs (terrible for your health). 7) Limit your use of any device with a screen. I myself have a problem with this because I'm retired and often have nothing better to do, but still I'm trying to limit my time and take breaks from the internet.
Every individual should have the right to do what he/she sees fit when it comes to THEIR bodies. We'll let the laws of physics settle the difference.
>>17461 I will ask you this then: why have people all over the world who have serious health conditions travel to the US to get medical care over the last thirty plus years? I can tell you why, "rationing" problems associated to insolvency of the subsidized medical institutions in those "utopian" countries. Subsidies simply mean taxpayers foot the bill, thats your average worker. And if there is only so much income, there is only so much the govt can take from these people. Medical care is expensive by default and you cannot change that. Someone must pay for it, and that is just economics 101. So who will pay for it? This is the debate we should have.
I don't drink soda and avoid most GMO foods when I can. Another bad habit is sleeping next to a cell phone, don't do that. The radio/wifi beacons cause a minute amount of radiation. It might not seem bad at first, but when you do it over and over for many years you'll develop tumors from it. Some people are already having brain turmor growth next to their ears where they held their cell phones up to the last two decades. What I do is put my cell phone on speaker, and won't use it for anything but for talking. When I go to bed I unplug the internet modem and keep my cellphone out of my room, where it stays inside a drawer till the next day.
When I used to camp I liked to go 50 miles away from any civilization and drive my Ford truck with a bunch of gear for hunting and fishing, only driving on old worn down gravel roads. Ohhhh yah, morel mushroom hunting too, and I'd cook them over a fire with some olive oil from a jar and a hung skillet. Ah, those were the days. Times have changed because I'm getting too old for that (can't tell you how many times I've gotten my truck stuck in mud, or broke down in the middle of nowhere with very little cell phone reception, back in the 90s that was a big threat). Almost thought I'd die once when I couldn't fix my engine and luckily some other hunter found me, called for help and got me a toe truck out of there. Wonderful yet scary times. Worth the experience though.

Sounds like extortion. Corporate camping for millennial trendies is more like it.
Camping will always be for those who really enjoy the outdoors and want to rough it a few days out in the wilderness. Urban communities, no matter how hard they might try, will never provide the same experience. Especially when you have to pay hotel fees just to camp.
The reason I loved camping was saving money by hunting deer and elk. After a successful day I'd bring one back with me to take to a local butcher where he'd butcher it properly for $50 and hand me all the meat wrapped so I could store it in my freezer. Do you know how much money I saved for food that way? A LOT. In a year I'd have around 120 dinners worth for $50 + the cost of the ammo.
You kids need to learn how to save some money, and all you need to do is learn how your ancestors lived. Don't ever take your freedoms for granted.
