Re: Hong Kong

Acting like you’ve never been layed off or fired before. Though I don’t know what you do for work, but I’m sure you have lost a job or at least hours before. A lot of people in the u.s. are working for companies not as employees but as contractors. It gives them an definite timetable, very few benefits and typically ridiculous work loads/deadlines to meet.

Edit: didn’t read the next page.... (edited)

imo most contracts get re-up'd, as long as you dont do shyt work. so valid point, bas might need a new job when the contract doesnt get renewed haha

If only the world was so black and white. I could probably work here till i die, but i don't want to.

I work in a restaurant right now, but i am an archaeologist, so next year i'm going to look for a job I actually went to college for.

If you can't be critical of a talking point and concisely articulate your thoughts on it without attacking the individual supporting the opposite view personally, than you point is moot.

Plenty of contracted workers are not renewed. I work with many freelancers who work from job to job. Oftentimes struggling in between because they do not have the option to collect unemployment.

I’m surprised you couldn’t find a job as an archaeologist somewhere in Europe after collage Its got a old history,

Sounds like a good dream job, almost like treasure hunting with the one exception of finding an unexploded munition!

What the fuck are you talking about? It's covered in detail literally every day on npr. They have reporters that have been on the ground for the last 6 months covering it.

Also every news site has a little tab in the top that says "world" or "international" if you click it you can see things other than what every dumb bullshit our president said on that given day.

Re: Hong Kong

***Kim Jong illest*** /

i came here to read a discussion about one thing, then watched everyone throw insults and tantrums at each other over another. jesus, i thought the reviews were over...

anyway....

maybe if you guys are done jockeying for the top of the moral high ground, we can get back to discussing how a group of free people are non violently protesting against the incoming orwellian nightmare that is the chinese communist party.

you know those guys. forget about what theyve done over the last 50 years if you can, and think about how in just the last 20 years, there is a monstrous communist government that is sending ethnic minorities to re-education concentration camps, openly suppressing the tibetans (to the point of outlawing reincarnation that isnt approved by the ccp? (!)), installing a country wide facial recognition system that can monitor you at all times and places, harvesting organs from peaceful falun gong practitioners, installing a "social credit" system where your ability to participate in daily activities is dictated by the ccp's assessment of your loyalty and subservience to the party, and openly threatens its neighbors in the region with invasion, and domination of economic zones by creating false islands as military bases to chase out the competition and make a springboard for taiwanese invasion.

its a topic worth discussing IMO.

maybe thats whats really the problem here. americans are just unable to talk about anything that isnt themselves.

peaceful protest is the best option hong kong has right now. they are showing the world and beijing that they can resist without bloodshed and violence, and it lends to their credibility on the bargaining table as they can demonstrate that they are not sociopaths and deserve a spot at the adults table.

however

the time frame they have for this to work against a power hungry totalitarian shadow of pure evil is quickly shrinking. without international support, eventually HK citizens will be run under the tanks just as they were in the tiananmen square massacre, and will only have 2 options, submit to forceful mind control by the ccp, and have their culture and way of life destroyed in front of them, or they will be forced into war. both options have the same result, HK gets crushed and its citizens will forever be lost to communist mind rape.

please tell me how a discussion about the crisis in hong kong as a single fucking thing to do with venezuala, minimum wage, social security, aoc, or any of the other dumb shit you guys are talking about?

whatever happens to hong kong, will eventually be the fate of everyone else on the planet and THAT is why this is so important. totalitarianism is just too good of a deal for those in power to not push for it globally. keep your head in the sand and have your ass bit off or pay attention to what is happening.

once again, i find myself on moped army looking for some kind of uplifting discussion and find everyone on it except will is a tantrum throwing child who cant stay on topic because theres something else theyd rather yall about than the topic at hand.

TL;DR will, call me sometime. chinese politics are something ive followed since i was a small kid, and unlike im guessing at least 90% of the people involved in this conversation, ive actually spent time living in china. id love to talk to someone about this with someone who actually seems to give a fuck about the situation over there.
