If this dog isn't leashed or removed I will not be able to vote for another Republican so long as I live.

Prohibition failed. The majority of Americans never supported it. The scheduling was never based upon any scientific or reasonable principle. Usage has increased exponentially since the MCA as have harder drugs. The grants and loans handed out by the DEA and associated agencies have served only to federaly deputize and weaponize our local police forces. And last but not least prohibition has justified the greatest theft and embezzlement of American tax dollars in history feeding corrupt and super-legal Tsars and their associated bureaucracy.

Jeff sessions just killed the future of the Republican Party.

I say direct democracy weights the opinion of an idiot equally to a genius and therefore isn't workable.
Cyberium - a system of government in which all citizens vote on all state laws and issues over Internet without intermediaries.

Yes, the United States cannot tolerate the Islamic Republic so long as the Iotolla Al Komeni remains head of state.

The period we are experiencing right now will be written as the Pax Americana or Latin for American peace. Just as the Pax Romana and Pax Britania before us, the world's hegemonic power rules the sea and therefore controls trade. These pax's are always broken by change in the global order. This is why the United States cannot tolerate Iran.

Just as Communism was a counter balance to "Democracy, Capitalism, and Self-determination" durring the Cold War, Islamic Republicanism acts as an alternative to Western Democracy.

For example if say Bahrain (between Saudi and Iran) was to end it's monarchy the choice would be between Islamism or Western Democracy. This pits the two styles against one-another.

Ironically because of this existential clash the United States (the ultimate oxymoronic hegemonic world power) benefits from using the Saudi and former British heshemetic kingdoms as a proxy to maintain the status quo.

Ironically backing nations and ideologies directly contradictory to the virtues of Democracy prevents the direct conflict between "Islamic Republicanism" and Democracy. Yet, the moment those kingdoms cease to exist Iran and the United States will no longer be using proxys.

In many ways the Iran/Saudi conflict is the Islamic version of the Napoleonic Wars. The end goal being replacing the Kings. But also like the Napoleonic Wars they must decide with what to replace the King. A bit of historical irony here.

In my opinion the intervention dilemma isn't as much of a conundrum as it originally appears.

For this I look to history. From the advent of writing we can ascertain that more advanced societies have constantly contacted lesser societies. In each of these encounters there are 3 possibilities. Either the more advanced civilizations conquers and enslaves, the two cultures initiate a cultural exchange, or the lesser society becomes a spectacle of the other.

In the event of the latter I reference the Jarwa in the Andaman islands. They are a stone age tribe that has resisted contact through isolation and hermetic tendencies. This "primitiveness" has caused them to be protected by governments and anthropologists but still has not left them untouched. The Jarwa have contracted modern diseases and still encounter modern technology sometimes even throwing spears at vehicles. Even further their "primitiveness" has turned them into a tourist curiosity attracting visitors from all corners of the developed world.

In response the Indian government has deployed military gaurds but like your star ship analogy, many of the gaurds allow tourists to get closer and even contact the Jarwa through bribes.

So my example above illustrates that the mere presence of a more advanced society (even without contact) causes cultural and physical contamination.

Therefore destroying the hypothetical planet-killing asteroid rushing towards the primitive society does not constitute a moral dilemma. The presence of the ship itself is the dilemma. Anything that happens or threatens once the ship is there is no longer a society interacting with a pristine counterpart.

Is there a correlation between soy intake and the amazing self-loathing, insane, virtue signaling, and disturbed machinations of leftist politics?

We just found a strange radio signal that may have come from this star system and as it turns out there's planets in the habitable zone.

Is this an alien society initiating contact?
