Speaking of which, can we talk about nihilism?

I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Perhaps you'll settle for a manifestation of it: Being presented with a president caring so little about election meddling by Russia that he fires the DNI director for defending one of his subordinates for testifying about it before Congress and .... focusing on the definition of a word.

Got it?

Of course that could just be more normalization. You want I should look that one up for you as well?

Wait, are you saying we are being pushed towards "a condition in which all ultimate values lose their value." ?

But the trumpublicans still oppose baby killing, so nuff said.

A game, if typically emotive and agitated reply.

So riddle me this, Batman: What if one's alternative -- the only via political alternative in a dualist system -- is a a party whose entire weltanschauung has been consciously nihilist for the better part of a century and egoist (and thus tangentially nihilist) for even longer than that?

What, pray tell, does one do when the frontrunner for the alternative party embraces an ideology that even Marx hated and understood as ultimately self-absorbed and suffocating?

If you were serious, you might ask these questions of yourself or, in the alternative, at least consider that those who have asked them and do ask them might not be chuckling so much as muddling through.

Got it?

If only you had posited a straightforward point once in a while over the past dozen years and not dealt in cryptic mockery and fabulous false equivalence one might have some sense of that. But since lulzing and mehing away the most egregious corruption in U S history and baiting rabbit holes is your game I think you’ve pretty much forfeited the benefit of the doubt. I don’t know that ever once have I heard you express a note of concern over anything that’s been happening the past three years.

Russians btw are meddling again in this election with the tacit approval of our president. I wonder, does THAT bother you enough to actually express it? Or should we expect more lulzes or something Clinton or Obama once said about Russia as misdirection?

Btw, all the rabbit holes over here have been salted and closed over.

Well, that is a conundrum, and yes trump is scary and the R;'s haver been moving towards trumpublicanism for awhile, but you can vote for Bernie. I know they might toss you from the trumpublican party if they catch you, but how bad can that be? You could look in the mirror again, you don't have to vote for tiny just cuz Putin thinks you should help him destroy America.

President Trump’s ongoing purge of his administration is rapidly getting worse, so it’s urgent that we accurately frame what’s really driving it, to avoid letting it get shrouded in a story line about Trump’s unchecked emotions and pathologies.
So let’s be clear: Trump is not merely purging officials to sate his anger at those who crossed him — that is, as backward-looking retribution against disloyalty.

Rather, the real driver here is that Trump is removing officials who committed the sin of trying to defend the rule of law from his efforts to corrupt it. This is forward-looking: It clears the way for more such corruption of the rule of law and sends a message to others about what awaits them if they stand in the way of this as it continues to devolve.

When Trump demands that the Justice Department do his political bidding and/or rages at it for failing to do so, the press tends to treat this as flowing from an actual belief on Trump’s part: He really thinks a “deep state” cabal is out to get him, and he’s fighting back.

But this is a fundamental error. Trump is raging at officials who constitute an obstacle to his own active, ongoing corruption of the rule of law. And it’s working: The Justice Department actually is carrying out his corrupt bidding in many ways.


meh, it has been worse....
