Each country has its own culture, economy, institutions, territory size/shape, and politics. I think the truth is the opposite of what you claim about all countries being the same, because that is impossible physically, and over-generalizes things politically and economically by neglecting the details and nuances of each individual country.

That is all


I didn't mean the people with my words, I meant the governments. They are all in the same side at the end. Yes, they may have some problems with each other from time to time, but look at the bigger image!

One of the best examples for the things I'm claiming right now is the Global Coalition Against ISIS. When big countries (like us, russia, and china) noticed that ISIS began to grow and become a real threat to their interests, they simply created an international coalition of more than 80 countries in a few days just to fight this threat.

I mean... How could they simply ORDER the rest of the world to participate in this coalition, and they actually agreed to this request in a few days? Ik that some countries withdrew from that coalition after the war ended, but this does not cancel the fact that they were once participating doesn't it !??

As I said, they are ALL the same!!!

It's all just a game to them. They need us fighting over their worthless shit while they are laughing at us for wasting our whole lives trying to accumulate things they can just take from you in an instant.

You don't own your home... no one does. You may own the bricks but you definitely don't own the land. Stop paying property/land tax and see how long your home lasts.

You don't own your car either... stop paying road tax etc and see how long your car stays on the road.

They created the game and made up the rules. Do you think they would ever make the game winnable for you? Not a chance.

And if you think you're free, get in a boat and sail to an uninhabited island and build yourself a home. You won't get a few miles from your shore before they drag you back to your prison lands.

ok i will stop im talking too much

I dont know what's true anymore and i dont have the energy to validate shit anymore but labor abuse is a thing in the Gulf region in general.

The Qatar world cup controversy was amplified by this article titled "6,500 migrant workers have died in Qatar since World Cup awarded", but in the article it states "There have been 37 deaths among workers directly linked to construction of World Cup stadiums, of which 34 are classified as “non-work related” by the event’s organising committee"

When you read the title you assume that 6500 workers have died building the stadiums not 6500 migrant workers in general since 2010. Which is kind of misleading since most people won't read past that.

I assume in the moment it was a fairly popular proposal, especially for governments that had problems with terrorism (or wanted to use it as an excuse for further government power). Also, if what you said about all the big countries is true then what can the little guys do about it? International relations is like a rowdy playground. Small countries side with the biggest countries for protection. It is evolution at its very core.

Finland sided with Germany during WWII, but that didn't mean they were Nazis. It also didn't mean that they ran their country like Nazis (they didn't). The Finland Government undoubtably did not see this as a game, but as survival.

Imagine if people abolished property tax.. What is to stop people from accumulating large amounts of property and sitting on it without actually using it, shutting it off from everyone else. Actually, property tax is fairly reasonable, as is road tax. How else to repair roads?

However, I do agree the the worldwide imbalance in power between government, the rich, and the poor is not optimal at best, and egregiously unjust at the worst. The problem, at least where I live, is not taxes. It's the lack thereof, especially for the upper class, that is the problem. Actually, on that subject there is a very interesting scientific article about optimizing taxes, link here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41562-022-01383-x

user Ahmad: I think it was a common case of people interpolating to make new facts out of other facts. This is known as the Mandela effect, and unfortunately is more common than many may be aware of.
