Admiral Says He'd Launch A Nuclear Strike On China If Trump Ordered It Macaroni !RevGiOKgRo 770629[View]

Story

>At a security conference in Australia on Thursday, this scenario was posed to the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet: If ordered to do so by President Trump, would he would launch a nuclear attack on China next week? His response: Yes.

Well I mean that is his job, but it's not like he came out and just said, "Oh hey, we may Nuke china. We don't know yet, but if Trump says so I'm down for it."

It was a completely absurd question asked by a reporter and his answer was "Yes." because as a military commander, his job is to follow out orders issued by the Commander in Chief. Nobody actually has PLANS to do this. A reporter simply asked, "Would you follow the orders of your superior officer." but in a completely absurd way and like a proper commander, he answered "Yes."

So, "Commander says he'd follow orders of his superior" is apparently newsworthy?

Official comfy /chat/ reading/literature/audiobook thread Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 678946[View]

figured we have a thread going for music so why not one for books?

my big new year's resolution was to start reading again and I just finished my first book of the year, Catch 22.

I enjoyed it a good bit, especially the last few chapters. if you guys have read it, let me know what you think (after some googling I can tell that popular opinion on the book is pretty divided).

I'm starting out my reading with audiobooks because they are much easier for me to focus on than...actual books.

I'm not sure what to start next but I will start it soon, I got some recs from an /oat/ thread a couple weeks ago, so some of you may have seen me post about this stuff already.

Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize we're floating in space,
Do you realize that happiness makes you cry
Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Want to bitch about albums not making you enough money and wanting streaming crappy lo-fi music for $10 a month so Apple can afford to pay you more?

Step into the shoes of your fans, asshole! You feel free to pay the $10 a month plus any bandwidth costs.

PS, I don't live in a basement, Trent. I live in a very nice second floor apartment with a lovely view of a lake. Way to stereotype your fanbase!

Despite not being a music person, I read the whole article and I agree with >>770365.

Most of this interview is saying that he does not care about the money as much as actually getting the music to the people that want to hear it. In fact he did a collaboration with somebody and put it up on a private server saying "You can download this music, and I just need one of two things: An email address, or 5 dollars that will be handed directly to the guy that helped make this album possible."

Of 30,000 downloads, only 20% of people actually paid for it. He did it as an experiment to see if people were being honest when they said that 'If artists made music people wanted, they would be willing to pay for it.'

He called their bluff. But even after that he never resented the fans. He says specifically, "That seems odd to me. That I'm supposed to hate people that want to hear my music so bad they will steal it." He doesn't actually dislike people pirating music at all, he just knows that a lot of heart and soul goes into making it, and when people don't give anything back to support the people that make it, it feels like they don't actually care about the art.

He uses a subscription service because he doesn't want to be that asshole that sues a 14 year old for downloading his album, but he also knows the 'honor system' is bullshit. So a subscription based streaming service is pretty much the middle ground of the two. He admits it's not perfect, but it's what they have to work with right now.

Read the whole article.

>The thing is, artists were trained in the 2000s to feel like, “Well, if you’re a fan, you won’t listen to stolen music.” That’s bullshit. You should be grateful that someone’s interested enough in what you’re doing that they’ll go to the trouble of stealing it. The whole premise of how music was delivered in the CD era was stupid. Nobody wanted to buy compact discs. There was a better music shop and it was called Napster or What CD or OiNK. It was curated better and it had every version of everything you wanted.
I don't really get why you'd be upset with anything he's saying just because you like vinyl? Nobody said anything about vinyl being dead.

<You notice Trent didn't bother to admit that bands make their best money on touring and tour product sales

He never denied it either? Do you think he doesn't know that as an actual musician that's dealt with record company bullshit for years?

<That's why bands and artists who make use of YouTube to release their music tend to do much better. Look at Weird Al or Gorillaz.

Yeah good job naming some of the most kid-friendly commercially successful alternative artists in the mainstream, I'm sure they could never do it without the wonderful artistic and monetary support from Google's version of Youtube.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 770586

I didn't have a good time trying to masturbate this morning. I thought I was all good to go, like I knew exactly what I wanted to fap to, but I ended up browsing like two dozen doujins, and not at any point coming (no pun intended) close to finishing. And finally I just gave up, and felt all agitated.

I think there are both positives and negatives to masturbation. I mean I know for fact that it can majorly calm me down, and generally relieve tension. I just have to be careful to not get obsessive about it.

“I have criticised the appalling misogyny and homophobia of Islam, I have criticised the murdering of apostates for no crime other than their disbelief. Far from attacking Muslims, I understand – as perhaps you do not – that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim women,” wrote the author in his response. “I am known as a frequent critic of Christianity and have never been de-platformed for that. Why do you give Islam a free pass? Why is it fine to criticise Christianity but not Islam?”

He's not wrong in the basic objection posed here, but it's worth pointing out that the color of Dawkins' criticisms of Islam differ even from those of his regarding Christianity, which he considers an atavism; Islam is radically evil, down to its literal foundations and essential spirit. On the part of the New Atheists in general there has been a meticulous intellectual effort to keep the radicalism and despotism which characterize Middle Eastern politics from being divorced of doctrinal consequence. One may agree or disagree with such an assessment, but its logical outcomes make it different fare than the usual 'God Delusion' stuff.

Anonymous 770416

>>770413
Its probably because Islam was began at its very core level as a militant theocratic religion with mandates to militarily conquer the middle east, while Jesus was a pacifist who was opposed to such actions.
You can't deny that a religion having a military figure as a founder has a pronounced effect on its inherent danger.

Christianity has the old testament, but Jesus himself more or less waved the old testament away with his statements of himself.

Hopefully then you see my point that we're trodding in two different theaters of political action: the one against a quaint impediment to the progress of science and education, and the second an existential threat to Liberal values themselves (in the broader, classical sense of humanism, rationalism, etc). In the one the culminating action is reform; in the other, I think ineluctably, war.

This is really just my attempt to give the qualification Richard was asking for. It's the beginning of a longer discussion. Part of that discussion would include the points which you have fairly raised about the origins of Islam. My quick view is: it's complicated. The scripture of Islam invokes militant language. The spirit of that kind of language has many dimensions. It was no doubt an impetus to the empire building of the Arabs in the second half of the first millennium, as it is no doubt the justification for hideous acts prosecuted by power possessors of different ranks in Muslim countries today. Gandhi was a supporter of Hindu/Muslim solidarity in India and was a great admirer of the Koran. He was by no means a pacifist; but he was of course very careful about the use of violence and a passionate believer in the utility and righteousness of non-violence. His thinking was in the Vedantic strain. He said, "I prefer non-violence to violence; but I have to prefer violence to cowardice." In this connection one is perhaps reminded of Muhmmad Ali as a figure of popular Western culture.

The point is that I'm not convinced that the Koran is lacking an inner or spiritual content that we might give the Gospels a 'pass' for, however outmoded and mired in superstition we might perceive them to be. This is to say nothing of the mystic branches of Islam such as the Sufi or Mevlevi.

On top of this, there is the psychology of nationalism (which has an affinity with exoteric religionism) and the ongoing consequences of imperialistic intrigue to get a full picture.
