I'm seriously worried about the political climate change in the West. I wonder where we are headed and how it will all end. I'm afraid things May get even worse before they can even begin to get any better.

good job Andy, keeping those Big Brother admins busy for their money closing threads and stuff, especially their Great Leader, that old little literature professor from the lost mountains

on the topic, who really wants a „serious“ political discussion? is there such a thing at all? if there is, who decides about its seriosity? and isn‘t all the fun about it actually in trolling, triggering and hate speech? bist deppert, die is schoaf?

I can perfectly predict what, if any, replies this post will get but seriousness is about sanity szo. Not only it is possible, it is needed and sane. As to who decides, if you can't tell the difference doesn't mean others can't. Doesn't mean it is not desirable.
About your 'fun' question. May be trolling is fun but not constantly, hourly or 90 out of 100 posts. If you truly believe hate speech is fun it is sad and much worse.

Hey Reza, my fellow Canuck ...am just curious, who defines hate speech?

Up here in Canada, we see the groper and his useless buddies calling us racists, nazis, neadrathals, climate deniers. I think those are sort of hateful. What about you?

I cannot wait for October to come to vote this jacka.ss out and make him a part time supply drama teacher again. He's made Canada a laughingstock internationally with his costumes and virtue signalling peoplekinding globalist incompetence. And don't get me started on giving that murder terrorist pos Khadr $10.5M while the widow of the American medic he killed and their kids suffer the rest of their lives...and yet our Vets "are asking for more than we can give"...

Thoughts?

@Reza , it is fun and sane when I use hate speech and call Morerhino lame, Orkan a comrade, JCam a Jair, Canucks snow Mexicans, Peruvians a snowflake, Ero a kiwi/yugo, TTM a salvatrucha etc and there‘s also nothing wrong with others doing the same to me

politics generally imho is a satirical topic nobody with a sane mind can take seriously to begin with and this applies even more so for people who do

politicians are nothing but professional and well paid trolls

I recommend reading Michel Foucault‘s „History of Madness“ as introduction into the handling of „sanity“ and the outsourcing of what is not considered as such by the powers to be

I have no interest in Trudeau and have never voted Liberal at any level. A serious discussion about Canadian politics can be had, if anybody can stop 'trolling', keep civil and serious in 90+ out of 100 posts.
No one person is capable of defining what is hate speech, there are some words that are more hate than others, some more obviously hatefully directed and intentionally aimed at others .... but after all that, you are mistaken if you equate xt with society. XT is a football forum, it is not downtown Damascus, it is not even Canadian parliament.

look at the WWE fx. we totally hate and troll each other ethnically with hate speech and beyond, yet we all get along somehow, even to such a point that when outsiders come in lecturing us about rules and such, we‘d fight to the last man standing for each other. also, it has been one of the most active sub-forums for many years now

sanity, madness?

having browsed through Canada‘s party system, couldn‘t find anything I would lean to. would probably go for either Liberal (because Ganja) or Bloc Québecois (because regionalism) or anything that has a candidate with Hungry ancestry

Maybe you aren't so bad after all?
