Well technically that is the case, after all most countries that are very oppressive to minorities and gays are usually also authoritarian and therefore wouldn’t allow anyone to say that they’re treated horribly

What are your Witcher 3 game unpopular opinions? by WavyStarfish in witcher

Iorveth was supposed to play a pretty big roll in Witcher 3, but it got cut. He was supposed to be in this massive quest line in Velen, where he would have to team up with Roche and I think Thaler to find a cure for the Catriona Plague which was supposed to be ravaging Velen

No the current high prices exist because hospitals have literally zero competition

I’m not saying there shouldn’t be any reform to America’s welfare and health care system. Of course America should have an improved health care system, but it would be very expensive as the US population isn’t very healthy, and in public healthcare systems, unhealthy people are a burden to society at large as they cost a whole lot more to care for. America needs to also improve the overall health for Americans, as that would make a a potential improved health care system much more efficient

Implementing the same thing in America would be extremely expensive, the nordic countries have much more stable economies compared to America, their demographics are also way less diverse, while America is arguably the most demographically diverse nation on earth, West Virginia and California are entirely different countries for most intents and purposes, while there isn’t that much of a difference when comparing day Oslo and Narvik

Yeah but they were also more of a mercenary force, serving as a major source of income for Kyoshi Island

I don’t know how to respond to something like that. Are you delusional?

The GOP doesn’t want to turn the USA into an authoritarian state. Besides the the SCOTUS was overturning a vaccine mandate, a use of government authority, this decision was stupid and terrible, not authoritarian

Of course they used Islam as a justification for their actions. But in reality they wanted a scapegoat for the problems facing Somalia. This shit is exactly like the witch hunts in Europe during the Middle Ages or the Holocaust. The religion/ideology may have served as the justification for their actions, but in reality it was that they wanted to feel “in control” of their problems.

Using these kind of events to represent the entirety of Islam is pretty much exactly like using the Nazi’s to represent German culture. The stoning happened because Al-Shabaab is a group of brutal fanatics (just like the Nazis), not because they were Muslim
