Re: Regional Dialect and Idiolect Oddities (pronunciation)

Like, I know the equivalents to the sort of thing I was looking for in Spanish: mostly "take the feminine form, knock the -a off and replace with one of -@, -x, or -e" (although -@ I think is usually used primarily for people of unknown gender but presumed to be binary, -x is a bit more i...

Re: Antifa & neo-Nazi Ned in: "Too Many Violence?"

But that covers only a small part of the topic - Germany has nazi marches, nazi violence, self-described antifa groups, and debates about antifa violence, all somewhat similar to their US counterparts. The main effect of the anti-nazis laws is that there are no open swastikas in the nazi marches. C...

Re: Antifa & neo-Nazi Ned in: "Too Many Violence?"

Capital punishment and a retributive penal system didn't exist before Trump? In any case, the law defines when violence is *legally* justified. An ethical system defines when something is ethically justified. The two frequently don't line up. The problem with this line of argument is that it justif...
