You'd much rather live in Britain than you would Saudi Arabia
Also, it's worth keeping in mind that Europe isn't one single country (even though EU wish it was). There are different laws for free speech everywhere.
That being said I much prefer Europe over America. I don't believe in the right to carry arms, and I don't believe inciting to violence is regarded as free speech any more than you believe threats are.
Besides, pretty much the only people insiting to violence is radical muslims and nothing please me more than seing them thrown in jail for it.
#124203 - whoozy (08/12/2016) [-]
Good. That is exactly what I want. The common man should never be trusted with firearms.
We have a much lower crime rate than the US. Granted this isn't necessarily related to firearms being reserved for police and military, but as it sits I see no reason for trusting the "common man" with lethal firearms. A killswitch is not a human right.
#124204 - marinepenguin (08/12/2016) [-]
A firearm isn't a "kill switch". It isn't any better at taking a life than a knife, or a bomb. It may he more efficient or it may kill at longer ranges, but it doesn't kill any more easily. Even as a cop, we're trained that a knife, baton, tazer, vehicle, pan, or even fists in many cases, are just as lethal as firearms and can be a prerequisite for lethal for the. Also, even in the United States, far more crimes are prevented and lives saved than are taken away by firearms.

It's a lot better at taking a life than a knife. It makes spree killing A skilled martial artist can easily disable a knife assailant. Nobody can do shit when being mowed down by assault rifles.
Guess what, bombs are illegal as well.
You see the difference beween a knife or a fist and a firearm is that firearm is literally made to kill. Knives and fists are tools and unless you're going to mutilate the entire population they have to stay as a necessity.
"Rocks can be used to kill people therefore I need a missile"
Do you see the fallacy?
I believe it's to late for the United States, too many firearms is already in circulation. I don't really see the problem. You can have your wild west over there while we have a stricter society over here. In the end we're both happy with the legislations where we live.
#124215 - marinepenguin (08/12/2016) [-]
They can fire back if they have weapons too. Most european's and generally people with zero firearms experience generally have a false idea of a weapons capabilities and how efficient they really are. The problem is that disarming the common man doesn't take guns out of the equation, it disarms those who would potentially be able to defend themselves against someone else with a weapon. More guns don't equal more crime, more murders, or more violence.
Gun deaths still occur in areas where they are illegal, and bombs are still built fairly easily and used while being illegal. Something being illegal doesn't mean it gets eliminated from use.
-"Rocks can be used to kill people therefore I need a missile"
Do you see the fallacy? -
No because that's completely misrepresenting the entire argument. No one is saying everyone needs a missile. I only see your fallacy of inflating my argument to seem ridiculous and less agreeable.
I don't have a problem with Europeans not having firearms, it's not your culture and I understand that. I have a problem with people pointing at Europe and fetishizing what your policies are, and claiming we should follow suit.
#124225 - whoozy (08/12/2016) [-]
I don't know that much about Canada
Seems like a nice place
It doesn't mean he should recommend the American system for Europe though. From what I've seen he jas a lack of understanding when it comes to European politics.
Either way we both want to and are living our own way so I guess we're good
#124199 - marinepenguin (08/12/2016) [-]
You either have the freedom to do as you say or please, with the only exception being that you aren't Infringing upon another rights. If you aren't free, you're in a cage, and some cages are just bigger than others.
Also, inciting violence, otherwise known as a call to action, is illegal in the United States. If you tell someone to kill another person and they actually do it, it will make you an accessory to murder. If you yell fire in a theater and there is no fire, you are liable for injuries or damages that occur and will be tried.
Saying that all Muslims are murderers and evil, or that all blacks are stupid, may be bigoted and considered "hate speech" in some places, but it's still an opinion they have a right to hold and voice. But once you begin to give threats, that's when the law becomes involved.

Absolute freedom would need to have a society that is a system of anarchy, but at that point, people would feel no restraints, and the entire society would turn into a shithole.

Because the new generation of black people don't have any actual racism to deal with while the older ones did. So they just find something to bitch about when they can't find success, it's very typical. Then Successful black people don't care about their communities, they just take the money and run. So really all you hear it from are poor misguided black people is all.
#124193 - marinepenguin (08/12/2016) [-]
Honestly out of all my neighbors they're the only ones who have given me any sort of problems.
They're also the only black family.
I'm just a firm believer that there's an issue with the black culture and that the government has destroyed the black family, creating a 1-2 punch of poverty and crime.

I think "technically legal is going a bit far. If crimes was technically legal, Germany's invasion of Poland was also "technically legal".
But I think you're right, Russia was already hurt by some sanctions from the Ukraine/Crimea incidents. A full blown war would have some serious backlash.
#124169 - thumbfortrump (08/11/2016) [-]
It was completely and totally illegal. Acquisition of territory through conquest has been considered illegal since WW2 by practically every country in the world.
Self-determination is recognised but only in very specific situations, and never ever while occupied by another state.
#124171 - thumbfortrump (08/11/2016) [-]
Yeah, but it is extremely rare in international law that states can legally invade a country with the purpose of protecting the citizens of that particular state. The whole thing has been a complete farce. I think I could be a lot more Russia-friendly if it wasn't for the fact that they don't have any respect for borders.
It is a strange hypocrisy or naivety in the right wing camp that we speak against muh globalist imperialist and muh government-controlled media, but keep throwing ourselves in the arms of Putin.
#124135 - thumbfortrump (08/11/2016) [-]
I doubt the Baltics will do anything without the US sanctioning it.
Honestly if Russia attacks they'll steamroll Ukraine. They'd also have to come up with some retarded pretext, but that hasn't stopped them before.
Historically, August is also the perfect movement to conduct stuff like this. Government offices are somewhat empty in August because of vacations. The Berlin wall was build in August 1961. Czechoslovakia was invaded in August 1968. Moscow coup was in August 1991. And most importantly, Georgia was invaded in Augsut 2008.
And speaking of 2008, we were having a presidential election, and the world's focus was on the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The exact same circumstances as now.
I'll bet my hat this August is one for the history books.

While that's true, that's not what I'm saying.
I'm saying that if someone makes the claim that whites systematically try to suppress minorities because they're racist, why are Asians performing so well so often? Jew's do as well but people generally consider them white.
