  • [ – ] Phobos_Media reply Styx says the important things. Thank you for not caving to either of the retarded sides of this conflict.
    • Sw4gBeard parent reply Yea he doesn't cave in. It's not because he has the strength to resist. But it's because at his core he has a skeptic thinking mind that analyzes each issue separately. Most people just lump them all together forming identities like the Left and the Right for example.
  • ironrope reply "if words are not an option actions are inevitable" - great words of caution to the "powers that be". very good analysis. 10.2 bro!
  • ClassicalLiberal reply "Hire some historians". Hmm, Styx, I think historians might be pro censorship. Isn't history exactly what gives Germany such strict censorship laws, including ones against 'Volksverhetzung'. Wiki: "Volksverhetzung, in English "incitement of the masses", "instigation of the people", is a concept in German criminal law that refers to incitement to hatred against segments of the population and refers to calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them, including assaults against the human dignity of others by insulting, maliciously maligning, or defaming segments of the population." As you can see, that can mean just about ANYTHING! The new German law Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz "Network Enforcement Law" will charge sites such as FB fifty million Euro for allowing 'hate speech'.
  • Gremlyn reply I don't think throwing rocks (or any violence) should be allowed, even if it does make antifa look bad. Otherwise I agree entirely. However, when others try to force authoritarianism using violence and intimidation, especially if they are protected by the authorities and the media, then what?
  • I3UTM reply I am declaring my channel for those that are for pro-liberty and antiwar. Who's with me? Post your channel below for a united Left and Right. That's about all. Peace out.
  • ironrope reply commenting twice because the end of your video really put it best - MAINSTREAM CORPORATE MEDIA ARE SCUM AND SHOULD BE COMPLETELY ASHAMED OF THEIR ROLE IN RADICALIZING THE PUBLIC WITH FEARMONGERING AND ABUSE! fuck them all. dont give them a single fucking cent. it isnt worth it and the time has truly come - we NEED to pull the chair out and let them HANG.
  • [ – ] 173 reply Both ends of the spectrum is made of the same substance.
  • [ – ] Val6412 reply The left is ahead of us because they don't denounce their extremeism. Trump supporters that disavow the alt right thinking that'll make them acceptable members of society are only fooling themselves. If you support Trump, you are the enemy.
    • [ – ] Sw4gBeard parent reply Not all Trump supporters are Alt-Right.
      • Val6412 parent reply No, but eventually they will have to chose a side. The left doesn't differentiate between alt right and regular Trump supporters. We are on our way to a full blown civil war, and Trump supporters can denounce the alt right to they're blue in the face, but they're still targets to the left.
    • Duecenvrlose parent reply Trump is the president America didn't want, Trump is the president America needs
  • VybeyPantelonez reply If it's got a slogan or quick easy to use catchphrase: watch out... you're probably being used as a pawn. Real change and constructive progress are not easy to achieve and require incredible amounts of patience. People need to first and foremost think for themselves and quit being so quickly recruited to extremes. The truth is somewhere in the middle and styx you're 100% right... free speech and compromise is the biggest catch all necessity, because without it all we have are fists and swords. Only the authoritarians stand to gain from escalation; other than that, if people can't start moderating their emotions: we will all lose in the end.
  • [ – ] ClassicalLiberal reply During the James Damore/Google censorship issues I joined Gab. On Styx's recommendation, I think. But I found too many antisemitic idiots. Exactly what Styx says here happened: I didn't want to bother with right wing extremists and left Gab again. Gab will be an echo chamber for them. Would it be better if they spouted their crap on Twitter and were thoroughly ignored by the community?
    • Rusty_Shakleford parent reply That's the same reason I left Gab. I was on it for a week before I was flooded with unironic echo quotes and far right conspiracy theories. You're probably right that if Twitter had left them alone and watched them post nonsense it would have just become background noise.
    • VybeyPantelonez parent reply Honestly all the antisemitism js probably fueled by islamist apologists. As far as im concerned, israel is the closest thing to a secular state in the middle east and so im ok with them. Jews tend to treat it as a religion or not take it seriously whereas islam is religion lumped in with political ideology. Ive known "jews" and not a single one was calling for their religion to be law or for genital mutilation. What kind of moron believes that a "god" would give a woman a clit then not want you to make her cum with it!?!? Why would "god" create a 100^100 lightyear universe then GAF if u have buttsechs or cover your hair? I mean you gotta be really #&$*in dumb to believe that... OK appreciation for the universe: down. Belief in a higher power: down. Speculating about sentient creation in the art that is the universe: down. Holding dumb logical inconsistencies as fact and then claiming power of law for your backwards zealotry: stay away from me and please dont come.
  • Cyriu reply Like always, you are a voice of reason. We simply can't let these two authoritarian ideologies prevail, and American / Western ideology must prevail.
  • Auceza reply I am also supporting free speech at all costs. But weirdos create from time to time more weirdos. We have to bear that. And of course you can't argue with weirdos.
  • tonygreene113 reply Sheeple on both sides need to be herded by those that are fighting for the limited brain matter in between their ears...
  • abpjd reply During the elections my left favoring friends couldn't except that I was undecided, the friends that lean right encouraged me to do my own research, I thought it was an interesting observation...
  • Rusty_Shakleford reply I don't know why it took me so long to find this channel, but I'm glad I did. I've been binge watching your videos all day. Good shit, man!
  • rk4n3 reply Hi - I'm a bit puzzled by your opening statement about being "not on the right or the left ... I'm pro-liberty". Wouldn't it be fair to say that individual liberty is a hallmark tennet of the right, and sacrificing individual liberty for the "collective welfare" is both a tennet of the left and antithetical to the individual liberty sensibilities of the right ? If so, wouldn't you have to admit that you being pro-liberty lands you square in the camp of the right ?
  • Senpai_zeze_fly reply 🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀 Delightful ! 🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀 After lurking the ethernet for my entire life watching endless amounts of opinionated talking heads may i say ..... Styx for the time being you are the most nuanced hence the best comentator out there. 👍👍👍 A+
  • Hagelbocken reply All SOCIALISM is to the LEFT on the political spectrum STOP deluding yourselves people. Any Nazis should go fuck of to left field where they belong. And the Marx Communist can shut the fuck up and sit down on the bench because they have done enough fouls. Have a good day all freedom loving liberal capitalists ;)
