Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
Since Clever Creator's thread has been taken over by AC keyboard warriors who have no function in life other than trolling web forums, creating this thread for our continuing discussion on world events:

- Covid
- Russia/Ukraine
- China/Taiwan
- US civil unrest

Or whatever else comes our way.

Everyone with a registered account is welcome here. AC's are banned from posting. I have only one rule: Treat others with respect even if you disagree with their position. This is discussion, not argument. I don't care who you voted for in the last election and I don't care who you're voting for in the next one. Keep it civil.

For reference:
Original Covid-19 thread by Dangerous Times:
Thread: Covid19/2021-22 OMICRON/ VIRUS "IHU" FRANCE:P13310/NEWEST VIRUS: "NEOCOV" HIGH INFECTION RATE+1 IN 3 DIE !?! P13315

Clever Creator's Covid-19 thread (now locked):
Thread: Sars Cov 2 … the grinder continues to eat away at resources and humanity.

Maybe. The thing of it is, I'm willing to listen to theories, but not when they're posted with insults. This isn't grade school. Just grow up, act like an adult, and we can have a discussion.

Those people aren't interested in discussion, debate, or dialogue of any kind, and I'm not going to waste my time and energy attempting to engage people like this, because nothing will change their mind or their hostility.

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
Extreme liberals and extreme conservatives are both preparing for war. I mean this literally, not figuratively.

Social media is going ape-shit, and the calls for violence from both sides are horrifying.

We may not have to wait on the virus or the Russians to kill us off. We're going to do it to ourselves.
 Quoting: Riff-Raff


If the Russians are smart they will let the West implode on itself and then offer humanitarian aid and security.

Except the West needs the war to hide the messes
 Quoting: Guythu




And these two comments are why I am leaving this thread. I wish everyone well.
 Quoting: Serenity Now


Seconded. I am done.

Cooler heads must prevail. It’s bad enough covid has dumbed everyone down further.
 Quoting: Clever Creator


By the way, here is where SN and CC went off reservation in the old thread. I have no idea what was said by either Guythu or myself to cause that reaction. Does anyone else know?

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
the whole world is off the reservation as u said lately. the mental drain from covid and the effects on life as the world knew it is getting to ppl. even the posts from the 4th were of many others not finding enjoyments to life as easily as before 2020. it isn't just covid warriors it is other GLP posters as well.

the whole world feels stuck. the shill's escape mechanism is to attack others. most ppl have their own ways of dealing with it. play video games, watch certain movies, music, gettig out with nature, visit family, etc. i did suggest such ideas a few times as a counter to covid. happy ppl are healthier.

I agree with this. People are angry, and some people cope with that anger by lashing out at anyone they can with the hope that it will make them feel better. But it never does, and they just continue getting angrier.

I've reached the acceptance stage, and am just biding my time until society as a whole implodes. I think most of us here feel similarly.

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
I read threads on /pol the other day about CERN conspiracies and people were attributing things like the Boris Johnson resignation and Abe's assassination to CERN having opened a gateway that shifted our timeline. It's probably poppycock, but I thought that was interesting.

Overall, I'm happy with my life (as an individual).

But if I shift outward from myself to society, I think we're in for a wild couple of years. The Sri Lanka stuff and the farmers in the Netherlands acting out against WEF/Klaus Schwab/NWO agenda 2030 is, in its chaos, inspiring. I don't know if Americans have it in us to stand up for ourselves. We've experienced 2 years of attacks on our food supply with mysterious fires and destruction at production facilities, but we still have our chicken tendies and our technology, so we aren't ready to rebel (yet). In America, too many people believe in woke Marxism, whether that be racial or environmental...I mean, the nitrogen stuff in the Netherlands is just dumb-did they really think farmers would just bend over and take it?

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
in the very beginning i felt the monotany of it all when all that was posted was #'s constantly of cases all over the globe. that's when i decided to start telling jokes to break it up and liven the situation up during the chaos.

the trainwreck went slower and slower. over time i tried to educate for the world that is coming. never expected this slow burn to continue this long. never thought the ppl would handle the yoyo of masks on/off again and again. for the most part the public didn't. they have gone to vaxes or no masks. some places like schools did go in/out of lockdowns but very few places. i think that is 1 reason parents never completely returned to work. 1 was kept as a backup for school closings.

by now many ppl have chosen their fates. some have said" if it happens, it does. or they'll "deal with the food shortage after it runs out". others are prepped for a short run only and betting on neighbor help. fate has been decided. if the situation goes full collapse and raiders show up. many don't want to live. many don't want to if life can't b like 2019.

the US has no real clue what is coming. we have always been protected from such events. even during the GD and WW2, we had farms. we weren't as separated from farms as much as today. and ppl were more neighborly back then. ppl in Europe do have a better understanding,at least the older generations.

it isn't just the shortage of food and meds that will kill ppl off. it is also the mental and emotional drain. each year will get harder for a while. probly for 5 yrs.

the crystal ball says after the downward spiral, there will b a decade of war on US soil. the nation will split from it's 50 state status into many smaller parts. these parts won't b the size of the states we have. the states will split. there is already rifts between rural towns and the metro cities that use up the tax $$. with pandemics,plural, many small communities will die out.

oh i do think the govern has plans to counter that. in the US the plan i doubt will b accepted by the ppl. of course it also depends on how fast the AI/robots can b brought online to replace workers. the race between what they want and how fast covid and the viruses spread and cause destruction continues.

i've posted my thought on these events a few times here/there. there is a plan to the madness. to make all govern's look bad. then the ppl in each nation will beg for a change. then offer the fix, a 1 world govern to oversee all nations and keep things "fair". it will b fair but not as ppl hope. by fair, we will all have less food and stuff like a 3rd world country. saw this coming in the US when the MSM pushed the fiasco in TX on the shooting and the SC cases. let alone the elections we have had.

create problem, make it worse, and then offer the fix. like giving u a tent and some firewood, after burning down your house. least u ain't sleeping in the rain and not homeless.

We can debate the cause and circumstances, but I think everyone here agrees that the world as we knew it in the 20th century is gone for good, and it's going to continue to unravel at a snail's pace for a few more years.

But you're right; most Americans have their heads in the sand and either don't realize what's coming or are just plain ol' in denial. Personally, I would rather take the pessimistic view and be wrong than be caught unawares.

It's been increasing among our circle of family and friends as well, same as you describe it. Mostly nasty cold symptoms.

There's a part of me that wants to believe this virus is going to mutate itself down to where it's manageable like the Spanish Flu did, but I just can't forget that this thing escaped from a level 4 biolab and showed indications of genetic manipulation. That's why I'm not letting my guard down just yet. We'll see what happens over the next 18 months or so and then I might start to relax.

If we're still here, that is.
