Red Team. Blue Team. Conservative. Liberal.

The problem is profound and systemic. Oligarchs pit us against one another and count on us being scared and unhappy. This is all done to promote an economic system which promotes infinite growth while we live on a planet with finite resources.

Therefore anime and video games provide us solice. As shipwright said anime is far more worthwhile than watching mainstream news.

Things conservatives and liberals can agree on? Hmm.....

"To hell with what the people actually need, as long as I can stay if office and keep stacking my bank account."

Everything else it seems conservatives and "progressive/regressive" liberals disagree on(Classical liberals actually agree with conservative thinking alot). This leads to my biggest concern, and that is politics are literally dividing the country. We are now in a day in age that I am concerned about letting people I know personally know how I feel about political agendas. We have all over the news people literally killing people because their ideological views are different. "All liberals are snowflakes" "All Conservatives are fascists" "All Trump Voters are idiots" this kind of ignorant banter divides America at its very core. To cite a famous quote "A house divided against itself will surely fall"

I don't agree with this simply because as a Republian, I don't support global warming / climate change. It is because there's much evidence that it doesn't exist.

No, there isn't. There's a reason even the US military is making preparations for climate change despite the GOP turning it into a political issue.

Way to highlight the problem though. >.>

When it comes to global warming, it seems odd how one can believe that the combined excess of 7.1 billion people would have little effect on the environment, quite honestly. This appears to be the main argument by many conservatives, in that humanity is incapable of making a lasting impact on the ecosystem and climate.


That just seems silly. The general consensus is that humanity does have an impact on the environment, and it is likely the Earth is raising a few degrees in Celsius.

Liberals and conservatives in the United States are probably more alike than they want to admit. Things that one side thinks are problems are likely to be considered to be problems by the other side. The difference is the solutions. The growing income disparity between the rich and poor is a good example. Both sides agree that this is a big problem. Liberals think the best way to solve this is to raise taxes and then give it to poor people. Conservatives think that the best solution is to encourage business expansion so companies will hire the poor people.

Highly educated republicans do agree that there is merit to climate change. I've worked with many of them. Any geology class at a university will show you how much of an effect atmospheric change has. And I mean really, it isn't rocket science. Introducing dense gases into enclosed environments traps light waves from a natural dissipation. There are methods that naturally try to balance things out but there is no evidence to suggest that it is a myth, especially when we can replicate it in small experiments.

Yeah I don't think so. You can never trust goverment when they say stuff like that. Have you ever heard of goverments distracting people from real problems? It's not new news. They have been talking about climate change for ages. Dont be blinded by such a stupid concept.
