It reads almost exactly like a really weird guy I talked to once. It sounds almost exactly like him but I can't be sure because I tried looking for where it would be posted but couldn't find it.

If it isn't him it's probably some random on reddit.

I found it in a YouTube comment. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to get the username.

Spoilered because the image technically is what scientific circles refer to as "FUCK HUEG!"

Also because it needs a preceding warning "may cause brain damage."

(click to show/hide)

...

a) The creator didn't know how to position speech bubbles. The panels are supposed to be read from left to right but the speech bubbles go from right to left...

b) The historical inaccuracies hurt my brain. Where did the history books teach that USA never brought slaves to the country?

c) Many of those inventions were only helpful thanks to the governments.

d) Most of that stuff has nothing to do with governments anyway. There was no point in human history invention of fire would have been the difference that makes organized nations unnecessary...

e) Bitcoin? Really?
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:

Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Bitcoin was made for criminal enterprise and was adopted by the same people that screech that "this is the year of Linux on the desktop!" because they don't understand how international finance works.  Also, ancaps are mentally challenged.  Though, that's like saying that water's wet or that shit stinks.

But unlike Bitcoin Linux is actually useful, doesn't contain child pornography and not built on madness.

Sure, Linux is losing ground now and perhaps it will eventually die, but fore more than a decade it was a pretty good operating system that did what the users needed from it and that's a hell of a lot more than you can say about Bitcoin.

HA, true that.  Plus, at least Linux is decent for servers, hobbyist electronics, and smaller computers like smartphones and tablets.  The only thing Bitcoin ever did was drive up the prices of high-end graphics cards.

Whats with AnCaps and never knowing about Libertarian Socialism (the original Libertarians, might I point out).

Like, I'm fairly certain Marx didn't like totalitarian states. That didn't really come into the picture until Stalin.

From the same person:

Quote
Yes, yes, "reality has a liberal bias," they said defensively, even as they pretended that human fetuses aren't human beings while protesting GMO foods.

EDIT: From Bob Kuhn, President of Trinity Western University:

Quote
Let there be no confusion regarding the board of governors' resolution; our mission remains the same. We will remain a Biblically-based, mission-focused, academically excellent university, fully committed to our foundational evangelical Christian principles.

This after they made the "community covenant," banning among other things sex outside of heterosexual marriage, optional for students (though not for faculty and staff).

"Biblically-based" and "academically excellent" are mutually fucking exclusive.

Religious "schools" should go the exact same way as for-profit schools.  Straight into the flaming, gaping maw of Hell.

Psychiatry... fucking psychiatry.

Quote
Delusions are false beliefs based on incorrect inference about external reality that persist despite the evidence to the contrary; these beliefs are not ordinarily accepted by other members of the person's culture or subculture.

(That's a paraphrase of the DSM-V; they threw on that last bit because they realized it characterized religion perfectly.)

Meh, I don't see the problem here.  That covers a lot of stuff besides religion and there should be a distinction between ideology and mental illness.  A healthy brain can come to the wrong conclusion because it's what society taught it.

There's "coming to the wrong conclusion because of what society taught you" and then there's "refusing to change your wrong conclusions when you're presented with the evidence that they're wrong".

^ But almost everyone does that to at least some extent.  If we say every person who has a backfire effect is mentally ill then the concept of mental illness becomes so broad it's basically meaningless.

Few things you need to know about this picture:

a) This picture is a few years old.

b) The people in the picture are youth members of a Finnish leftist political party.

c) No, these people are not in Denver beating up Fascists.
