Thread: EXTREMISTS are everywhere and come in infinite varieties

    Comes to mind that one of the questions immigrants were asked at Ellis Island in the early 20th century was: Are you an anarchist?

    wow, much thanks - forgot about following up on that Denver shooting though I definitely meant to as it was clearly not your average spree shooter (actually, planned and targeted spree shootings seem to be rarer these days than they used to be, passion of the moment is what seems to be dominating in violent crime)

    Acting out Nietzsche fantasies combined with libertarian Boogaloos sympathies, sheesh!

    How would you weed out this type of nut with "gun licensing"? Comes to mind: you don't! Actually comes to mind how many video games play on this kind of ethos as does the more gangstery type of rap & gang culture.

    And one doesn't have to here with me > how entertaining this kind of fantasy in play can work just as well getting it out of someone's system so they don't act out as it does encouraging acting out. I know that full well having several younger brothers heavily into violent "army" play as kids who as adults would never dream of something as stupid as joining the military.

    Perhaps there is a clue in that many of the more serious Boogaloos types are extremely angry and disgruntled ex-miliary (like Tim McVeigh) ....for them the military didn't live up to their Nietzschean fantasies?

    Society might benefit from the revival of the popular office sign THIMK from days of  yore. Maybe, just maybe, it's possible that every incident of bad news doesn't have to be crammed to fit into woke or anti-woke narratives or be be labeled racist or anti-racist:

    Europe's loud, rule-breaking unvaccinated minority are falling out of society

    By Rob Picheta @, Updated 12:53 PM ET, Sun January 16, 2022

    London - Before Covid-19, Nicolas Rimoldi had never attended a protest.

    But somewhere along the pandemic's long and tortuous road, which saw his native Switzerland imposing first one lockdown, then another, and finally introducing vaccination certificates, Rimoldi decided he had had enough.

    Now he leads Mass-Voll, one of Europe's largest youth-orientated anti-vaccine passport groups.

      Because he has chosen not to get vaccinated, student and part-time supermarket cashier Rimoldi is -- for now, at least -- locked out of much of public life. Without a vaccine certificate, he can no longer complete his degree or work in a grocery store. He is barred from eating in restaurants, attending concerts or going to the gym.

      "People without a certificate like me, we're not a part of society anymore," he said. "We're excluded. We're like less valuable humans."

        As the pandemic has moved into its third year, and the Omicron variant has sparked a new wave of cases, governments around the world are still grappling with the challenge of bringing the virus under control. Vaccines, one of the most powerful weapons in their armories, have been available for a year but a small, vocal minority of people -- such as Rimoldi -- will not take them.

        Faced with lingering pockets of vaccine hesitancy, or outright refusal, many nations are imposing ever stricter rules and restrictions on unvaccinated people, effectively making their lives more difficult in an effort to convince them to get their shots.

          In doing so, they are testing the boundary between public health and civil liberties -- and heightening tensions between those who are vaccinated and those who are not [....]
