    The Golden One has a weird tiny nose and I can't focus on the muscles. I am a failure. With great taste in noses (and character!).

    Nazis hell bent on protecting "whiteness" but beside their own narcissism, what makes them think "whiteness" is worth preserving in the first place?
    Just asking them the question they ask everyone else

    I thought "degenerate" was the opposite of "regenerate." Here it seems to be a similar but different concept. Do the roots of the words just look similar or are they actually the same? Is it the same word with two separate concepts?

    I'm pretty socially Conservative but I think you guys get us wrong I'm more Libertarian than some some. Although some are totalitarian I do not shame one for being gay but I just feel queer culture is degenrate and not being queer it self :/

    As an ex-Mormon I can say the LDS religion in particular indoctrinates you with this idea that degeneracy=the fall of civilization. The Book of Mormon is basically just a "history" where this exact cycle takes place over and over and over; basically a few rich people decide to be hedonists, and then everybody follows, and society slowly falls apart as everyone's morals and values slowly erode until everyone gets sobered up by a catastrophe and decide to follow the rules again. It wasn't until you mentioned that connection in this video that I even remembered that.

    ... degeneracy is what happens when you think you're enlightened by being drunk on ideas that are thousands of years old. You're not smart or insightful. Pro-tip: want people to listen to you? Then fuck off with the reckless use of "fascist" and "nazi". You don't want people dehumanizing you so why don't you stop doing it to other people you hypocritical pos.

    This is amusing - you are very entertaining. I subscribed.
    I think the context people mess this in is that (from their point of view) you don't stand for anything but hedonism, and hedonism stands over everything else.

    This whole notion that the people who believe in the heroic notions of masculinity being conscripted to the fringes and joining organizations like ISIS somehow makes us a threat to the west is just insane..

    We can go on being androgynous all we want and the US military will still be able to us unmanned aerial attacks from drones that fly too high in the sky for people on the ground to realistically shoot back and just unmercifully slaughter all the members of ISIS.

    Our Armed forces could take on the entire world unified against america- This country absolutely does not need me or you or Chelsea manning or any of us, it's taken care of.

    and what I mean by that is this:

    She's wrong, Androgyny in america is not remotely a sign of Decadence in our culture, We NEVER NEEDED ALL people born male to conscript themselves into our armed forces, we're fucking invulnerable.

    Yet again I ran across somebody that essentially feels that my love of Hentai is "Gross" and that getting off to Cartoons is disgusting.

    Nekos Bunny girls and hot anime women these are a few of my favorite degenerate things...
