Re: TENET - General Information/Discussion/Speculation

Weird thread. The Dark Knight Rises is one of the most cynical blockbusters of all time. It ends with permanent condemnation of our social systems and law enforcement , but that there will be people fighting for change. Sure, that's a hint of hope, but only a glimmer. His last two movies have been ...

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

I'm not sure you took my correct meaning. I'm saying activism isn't about outrage at every statistic or new viral video of police brutality. Yes, you should stay informed. Yes, you should witness. And listen. And yes, you should act. But nobody's mental health improves by absorbing every bit of tox...

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

I hate how much of this thread has become the same couple people reporting statistics and condemning current events, while the majority of people stay silent or avoid the conversation. I've been talking to some people on here about this kind of thing through other, more personal means of contact, b...

Re: Coronavirus Pandemic (2020)

With all the protests going on, I think this is gonna get horrific in the US. Flattening the curve was thrown out the window once cops started militarizing against citizens.

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

Literally all it takes is looking online for a few minutes to see where the aggression is coming from. Peaceful protests were continuously broken up by police last night with brute force and tear gas (which is unlawful to use in wartime btw).

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

Just saw a live stream of Seattle Police Department open fire with tear gas canisters into a peaceful protest that had been going on for hours. Gotta love how scared police get over a thrown water bottle.

This should be illegal, and this is the kind of shit that will make this situation become worse than it already is.
