Perseverance and overcoming difficulty enables personal growth.
The minute a person adopts a victim status they will blame every little inconvenience challenge and difficulty they face to that perceived bias, and rather than improving themselves, shift their mindset to the expectation that they be accommodated rather than improve themselves.
The time Poland was so #islamophobic that they viciously attacked thousands of Muslim undocumented migrants and stopped the Ottoman Empire from invading Europe..
"The Battle of Vienna is often seen as a turning point in history, after which the Ottoman Turks ceased to be a menace to the Christian world.
In the ensuing war that lasted until 1699, the Ottomans lost almost all of Hungary."
Civilization needs the outliers. We need the George Washingtons, Musks, Einsteins, entrepreneurs, scientists, etc to drag the rest of us forward
The average person can sprinkle their beer belly with chip crumbs while binging Netflix, & we're fine because of the progress being made by the outliers

It looks like you’re saying that following Trump will leave us stuck at midfield and the only way to score points and win is to embrace fascism?
So I guess if you're on #facebook, you're allowed to share this article from 2017 again?
"Inside the Chinese lab poised to study world's most dangerous pathogens"
"A laboratory in #Wuhan is on the cusp of being cleared to work with the world’s most dangerous pathogens. Some scientists outside #China worry about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations."
Just FYI, China got back to normal in October..
Anyway, hang in there! Just 14 more days to flatten the curve
China is back to normal — the US and Europe are not. Here’s how it succeeded.

Here I am doing important investigative journalism on my phone..
I’ve done the tough math on the numbers below for you; the number is about 18%. The birthplace of the #wuhanflu has a vaccination rate of 18%.
Does that make any sense in the context of #fauci or the mainstream news narrative?
“China administers record daily number of COVID-19 vaccines”

China carried out about 9.6 million vaccinations against COVID-19 on April 29, bringing the total number administered to 253.46 million
OK here’s a redpill for anyone with ears to hear..
Southern culture is the most trad chad culture in America.
Now take that statement, and consider how Southerners are consistently and often portrayed by the media: backward, redneck, inbred, dumb accent, etc. Always negative. A universally one-sided disparaging commentary of a culture by the media (movies, news, tv, etc) in lock-step.
OK. Now let’s go deeper.
In the specific context of this thread, take a listen to this song by Alan Jackson from the early 90s (Open your mind before you listen. It’s early 90s country, but think of the context of this thread, and listen to the message): https://www.iheart.com/artist/alan-jackson-69978/songs/livin-on-love-2565024/
Now consider, that by the late 90s, for some inexplicable reason.. the powers that be started injecting elements of rap and pop into country music. A lot of people disliked what was happening as “bad music” and honestly it has only recently occurred to me that this was likely intentional and inorganic. Now, Southern culture remains strong, and good songs do still flow out of southern musicians. Plenty. But modern country radio is a bastardized bro-country hip-hop laden version that bares no resemblance to the song linked above.
Why? I think most here can make some good guesses..
I think. Therefore I am free.
