I don't think we're going to get textbook socialism or nazism or fascism, but whatever it is it won't be good.
I don't think that'll happen either, but man, you've got the left openly calling for our president to be shot, Democrats openly throwing away the system of due process, attempting a coup within the Trump Administration, spying on the president and talking about ending the electorial college. Insane. Malevolent. Treasonous. Bullshit, out for all to see, it's not ridiculous to say that a war is coming (we're in a culture war right now, but I mean real war). Now this is not a call to arms, but when you have a party so engulfed in corruption that they're trying to seize back power by any means, we're all in deep shit. The lunatics want to burn down the asylum and hunt for blood.

Democracy in America hasn't failed yet, but give it a few years. We're in for a wild ride

These issues have become so tiresome i often find myself growing quite fond of the past before this crazy cultural chaos train just wishing this would just stop, but it keeps on going and going with no hopes of slowing down.
Tell me about it, I miss the days when it didn't seem like everything was flying off the rails as well.

I’m starting to think that’s really the only way back to sanity. Trumpism/adjacent types and SJWism are two sides of the same cancer, they feed each other so one can never defeat the other. Kill one and the other dies as it has no fuel, no raison d être. Trumpists cant rail against SJWs that don’t exist restricting their freedoms, and SJWs can’t rail against non existent Trumpists restricting their rights
I know what you mean, I like Trump and think he's getting treated unfairly, but the temptation is nevertheless there to vote him out simply because the climate under him is so toxic and it's all just so tiresome.

It feels like a merry go round that I may be ready to just get off of or as WOPR says in War Games "the only winning move is not to play"

I am no big fan of Trump, and consider myself more left, and I agree with you 100% on this point. At this point its not so much pro-Trump/anti-Trump, it's what kind of effect Trump has on politics or the zeitgeist in general that's exhausting. After a while you just want to change the channel to something maybe a bit more boring but watchable.

If anyone at all thinks that this derangement and twitter wokefest will die with Trumps administration you are completely wrong. Doesn't matter who it is, the next Republican frontrunner is going to be hitler 4.0 like Trump was 3.0 and Dubya 2.0. It isnt going to stop if they get their way on this one. Look how the left has already been demanding a mile every time someone gives them an inch. This momentum cannot be reversed so long as the same people are in power, Trump or no Trump.

That is what it comes down to is it's best to simply not give them what they want.

Because you're right, SJWs were already gaining a lot of steam under Obama.

The 2020s are sure off to a wonderful start...

Like I said before, I almost miss the swine and bird flu scares. While I read about them online, there was no real IRL panic. No panic buying, no gossip magazines freaking out about yet another celebrity with the virus, no stores going on reduced hours or closing, no public events cancelling, no curfews, no lockdowns, no "social distancing," and of course no Black Friday every day for basic things like toilet paper or pasta. But that was before Clown World and the honknet*, so I guess this is how every future pandemic is going to be handled in the West of Current Year.

I know it's chaotic and very disconcerting right now but if the 2020 Election goes badly for the Dems and the Left AND the United States can get a proper grasp on COVID-19 and begin proper relief efforts before the spring and summer are over, then things will recover slowly but surely.

Unlike China or Europe, I think the United States will make a full recovery from this pandemic but it will take time, especially in New York City and on the West Coast.

Honestly, I think the virus itself will probably burn itself out by the end of the summer and the real threat COVID-19 poses to the United States is the socioeconomic devastation rather than the virus itself.

Hell, that's the main reason why Senate Dems were so gung-ho against letting Trump's proposed relief measures get passed. They know that if he implements these measures to stabilize the economy and provide some semblance of stability during this crisis, the DNC will be fucked in 2020 and possibly the 2022 midterms and 2024 as well.

As it is, COVID-19 is undermining the power of the SJW's. They're still as fanatical as ever, but I think the hard reality of the pandemic is what's going to ultimately get both the masses and the big companies to tell the woke crowd to fuck off and let them focus on an actual crisis.

Remember when I said that the world of "Current Year" will likely get really bad right before it starts to finally get better? Call me optimistic, but I think this is probably the point in time that I was talking about.

2020 is going to be the last big gasp of Current Year, it's the proverbial darkest hour before the dawn. If the United States and the West can survive this, then we'll recover slowly and surely.

Times are harsh right now, but maybe this crisis will be the rude awakening the Western world needs to get a hold of ourselves and head back to a more grounded reality and far away from the malaise of Clown World and Current Year.

Granted, this is going to be a hard time for all of us and will take at least a few years for the United States to fully bounce back from the severe economic damage this pandemic has done.

In an absolute worst-case scenario, China is perma-fucked, and Europe probably is too, or at least the EU is. If that happens, then America takes a few years to recover, the European countries will take a few decades to do the same, if things really do get as bad as the doomers are predicting.

So, it's not all good, especially in the here and now.

And I will gladly accept all the rainbow stickers and puzzle pieces I will undoubtedly get.

I was more thinking all the virus-induced pandemonium would be the straw boulder that breaks the camel's back and lead to a libertarian movement in lieu of the social justice one.

H1N1 and the bird flu were kiddy shit in terms of virulence compared to COVID-19. It's not particularly deadly (~4% fatality rate), but 4% of the 80% globally that are at serious risk of infection with no measures is approximately 3.2% of the first world dying in a short period on top of the usual fatality rate.
The real problem is that it has such a long period of dormancy where you're shedding virus while asymptomatic; swine and bird flu didn't have that particular adaptation.

China isn't permafucked, sadly.
They predict the global economy will bounce back to complete normal by first half 2021.
People aren't going to stop buying from China. People aren't going to dramatically change what they do.
They will - for a period - lessen what they buy from China and make sure they have alternatives on hand, but overall, it won't stop chinks. People will be back to buying cheap shit as soon as it's available.

Now if you start tariffs and restart manufacturing on a local level at a higher rate, create jobs for people and overall boost your economy (with an emphasis on food production) and limit your unemployment rate, you have more of a chance to permafuck the Chinaman. But that also means lower taxes for businesses that wish to do that.
You have to learn to become very self sufficient before you can fuck a Chinaman.

This whole thing's also been handled exceptionally poorly. A focus on economy and track and trace on isolation cases needs to be implemented. You can't have people saying that the economy doesn't matter because "people are dying".
People dying is horrible, but more people die when you don't have the funds to even have a health system.
I think that people forget that. Even if America doesn't have a fully socialised system.

People may think Trump is being "greedy" by restarting the economy asap, but like, you actually need it to keep people healthy. Communism/socialism would wait for no man. You can't wait until infection rates are at zero to get people back into work.

Australia is looking at that. Scott Morrison didn't go full autist tonight, but it's still more people out of work.
We have a socialised healthcare and welfare and we're draining the economy by locking it up. It's not common sense for socialism/capitalism/anything. It's certainly not common sense for fucking China either.
They still have access to cash and as soon as the economy does genuinely drop, house prices drop and more chinks buy shit up.

I wish it would equal a fucked Chinaman, but to beat a Chinaman, you have to guard against a Chinaman. Their economy will be fine. It's shrunk a tiny bit, but it will rebound. Sadly, to get itself back up, Australia is either going to have to suck a lot of tiny Chinese dick or stop listening to "experts" on Corona, because they're legitimately full of shit and want to see economic ruin.

What I'm saying is, Australia will be a weak spot in actually fucking the Chinese for good. I have full faith that Trump can pull off the spectacular and save the US, so hopefully everyone else will follow suit, because Fuck China.

It seems like the 2020s will be even worse! Either that or Covid-19 and 2020 so far, are only the peak and final end of the 2010s as a cultural decade. Because cultural decades lag behind astronomical decades by a few years since the 30s and 40s (WW2 started in late 1941 for the US), this seems more likely to me, considering the 2010s as a cultural decade started in seriousness only in 2014. Maybe 2020 will be peak "Current Year", we go through some real suffering now (yeah I mean, SJWs are dumb but they don't put entire nations on lockdown and crash the economy) but then things start to change for the better fast.

I was more thinking all the virus-induced pandemonium would be the straw boulder that breaks the camel's back and lead to a libertarian movement in lieu of the social justice one.
Large parts of the woke crowd, especially its paramilitary wing, Antifa, are left libertarian. At least on paper.

COVID-19 will the fore-shock that will warn us of Lord Nurgle's forthcoming. Coronaviruses of all sorts will appear and inherit the earth. Then our sick, coofing bodies will reunite with with papa Nurgle will share with us the greatest happiness and wisdom.


So yes, the 2020s will be better. Maybe.

I can imagine Donald Trump's possible re-election as the catalyst for 2020 shift change. Corona Virus is the 9/11 of the 20s with the global impact and media coverage of it. Remember how Bush was to blame with 9/11 for the coming years to follow?

SJW culture is diminishing slowly thanks to Joker and Birds of Prey. I predict that the SJW Internet presence will cower to Tumblr eventually akin to the alt right with 4chan.

California needs a Rodney King moment to snap itself back into place. The laws that benefit two bit criminals with misamendors wouldn't had happened with the Roof Koreans protecting their property.

With social media, it'll probably be longer for the shift to happen.

I hope you’re right, but Corona-Chan ain’t no Captain Trips. She’s disappointing, to be honest.

Well, I was right that change was coming and 2020 is an exception because rather than the final year of the 2010s, everything has changed thanks to the virus, the 2010s are already a bygone era.

It's amazing how fast it happened.

As for what the long terms effects of the virus will be and whether the 2020s will turn out to be better than the 2010s is anyone's guess, I want to believe the damage the virus will cause won't be too bad and that it will at least have the effect of making people tune into reality more and move away from SJW nonsense.

But I used to scare myself by imaging what the 2020s could bring that would make me miss the 2010s and some apocalyptic scenario would do it, hopefully things won't be that bad.

We're not done yet. I still see the same old shit all over social media. Coronavirus is the 9/11 event, but there's still an Iraqi Freedom coming to finally wash the previous decade's shit away.
