>>884231 >Who is right, and why does Keating want to raise super contributions anyway? Both are right, nevertheless they may know something that most do not. The Paul Keating administration instated the superannuation scheme as they had forecasted the unprecedented amount of boomers entering retirement in latter years. It would seem that it was too much for their liking and incomparable to such an amount of retirees (le boomers) applying for the aged pension. It appears that superannuation was to "alleviate" the social programs budgets for neoliberal projects. The Reserve Bank while being a crypto-Rothchild bank (oh but its independant, pft!) tends to be less susceptible to librul (as in libruls not LNP) skullduggery and thanks to Australia being relatively a backwater it can function as a bank to its purpose (security and prosperity of all Australian iirc) and not be a rig. Still, if the superannuation guarantee is raised workers (Pre-retirement Boomers, GenX, Millennials and GenZ) would call for higher wages to compensate and businesses referring to their "legitimate" reports as not being feasible arguing against it (the Reserve Bank has public and corporate people on the boards). And again, that extra money could have been allocated to consumption which would appear on the Reserve Banks reports for each quarter. >I never really understood super, it just seems like a way to force workers into propping up financial markets. Superannuation tends to be mutual, having said that sending your superannuation to a financial institution (like ANZ) procures lower funds than an industry Superfund. Its lower as much more of the yields get paid to financial institution shareholders and financial advisors; industry superfunds reinvest the yields to members ie "you". There are also Self Managed Superfunds delegated to financial advisors and customising allocation of funds. Mark Blythe suggested (or forecasted) that Superannuation funds could be used to fund public companies, they already are more or less. Perhaps by consolidating industry superfunds there could be a sovereign wealth fund. imho there ought to be a jubilee and job market fluidity for GenX, Millennials and GenZ (hurr durr you want the dumbest guy to get a better job by 4pm - YES! Hurr durr you want some NEET to waltz into a well payiung job after playing vidya and cooming - YES!) among other things. Australia tends to be one of those countries that if you had it "easy" its going to be hard later and if you had it hard its going to be easy later. Boomers had it easy for 30-40 years and now with pension freezes and tanked markets its going to be hard and dissonant for them, like mental breakdown kind of thing. >>884259 This guy >>884313 also quote the refutations of Dengists/China and absolutely insist that you refuse to be a useful idiot and 5th column for China. If you argue with rabid boomer just tell him something like 'I want to join a union! Not a billionaires club who think they own me!' and mean it.

Why is this the most cucked nation on Earth? When will they stand up to the American imperialists? Why is the Japanese Communist Party full of succdems? Why weren't they occupied by the Big Daddy Stalin? How do we eliminate the weebs or wannabe "Japanese nationalists"? When will J*pan and S*uth K*rea bow down to their Chinese overlords? So many questions, so little time.

>>868452 >Why weren't they occupied by the Big Daddy Stalin? The deal with the US. I'd recommend a book which was called "Soviet Sakhalin" IIRC. Basically all of Japanese citizens had to get back to Japan by the agreement, no alternatives. There's also a funny moment about a typical roozkie barbarian gommisar who didn't know what kind of house he was sleeping in after a long road to the island. As it turned out there was a geisha waiting for her new master in the next room for an entire night. Just fucking imagine the reaction of the old guy who greeted their "conquerors" HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! And what did that non-european subhuman do to the poor girl afterwards? Of course he immediately ordered to free her from the noblest position the Japanese woman could ever dream of. What a savage ffs. Gib Kuriles. Why was there no North Japan? Because cumrade Sralin was a capicuck all the way from the start so nothing special here. Now people of Japan are enjoying being literal cogs who can't even breed anymore because of the eternal cycle of study and work and women are considered as walking incubators by "their" state. Thank you god emperor daddy Sralin for ruining anime with neverending westernboo shit because you were a westernboo yourself.

>>868452 Don't lionize Japan. They're super capitalist, run by rich families that are the literal descendants of the samurai. If they had power they'd be imperialist and racist and control half of the Pacific in their own capitalist empire.

>>884213 >amerigan gets salty about uncle sam being burned
>>884329 Wait isn't that Jack Reed?
>>884354 Yes tbh the scene doesn't make much sense to me because Uncle Sam had only been created in 1917 for domestic propaganda in the United States so where would these guys have found a poster of him and made the association with America to create an effigy to burn. Also since the whole point of Uncle Sam was to support the American entry into World War I I doubt Reed would have much sympathy. It may have just been in the movie to draw parallels to events in the Middle East around the time of its release.
>>889535 Sorry comrade, uncle Sam is derivative of early 19th century folklore. Usually the first reference is claimed circa the war of 1812, but by mid century, uncle Sam as personification of the government, and brother Jonathan as persona of the people, were used interchangeably. Old meme; some argue he was a masculine co optation of earlier feminine representations of america.

Libertarians: Misguided or Malicious? Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 01:04:06 No. 880872 [Reply] [Last]
A pretty lefty friend of mine is adamant that the left could collaborate with libertarians. His logic: they're anti-war, a lot of them are anti-Wall Street/anti-bank, and could be persuaded to adopt left-leaning stances (i.e. universal healthcare). He also says Assange considering himself a libertarian is proof that we can collaborate with them. This got me thinking: what's the deal with libertarians? Could they be allies? Do they make some good points? Are they angry at the right things but wrong about the causes? Are they retards who aren't worth engaging, or maybe even worth opposing? Thoughts?

Explain to me how we're not already living in ancap societies with all the lobbying going on by megacorps? Having to pay a few dollars for dumping thousands times the amount of allowed toxic waste is the only thing ruining their dreams
Lolberts are worse than ancaps. At least ancaps are somehow more sincere in their retardness
i was libertarian when i first became politically conscious 7 years ago the problem is,normie libertards like me will either turn into conservatives or bernie or more extreme tier leftists when left on their own or when given just a beginner level explanation of communism other than that group you really cant turn libertarians leftists,those dumbasses actually thing they understand economics for gods sake.
>>889083 >>889211 They are full of dumbs who think they are the greatest thing in the world if it wasn't for those mean bureaucrats keeping them down, that they are Randian heroes. Anyone that isn't deluded would realize the only way to achieve individual success is with collective cooperation.

>>889130 I am neither a christian nor an atheist but he is correct Any good christian will just be some type of heretical theologian that will maybe get a following of a few other left wing christians and then die and go to heaven with some apolitical mainstream preist writting an article about how good of a christian he was Even with state support like in the eastern block the socialist forces will never take over the corrupt church
>>889145 PragerU tier post
>>889145 My concerns are historically backed though. Christian organizations have a bad history and a a bad present, and while that's not universal, it's definitely wise to consider what if any ulterior motives a Christian charity might have. I'm not anti Christian, but you're crazy if you're denying that we should have reason to examine the results of their actions as well as their motives. Hell, technically that applies to any group nominally aimed at helping people.
