The left is a law abiding citizen
The right is a filthy sand ape

the left has the gun as defense and has likely never comitted a crime
the right actively engages in terrorist activities

You don't have modern Christian theocracies that actively persecute non believers

Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia are just ISIS-lite

The closest thing to what you describe would be the US if President-Elect Trump sticks to some of his proposed policies.

Terrorism is in the eye of the beholder though.

I expect there are a number of places where the US would be considered a terrorist state.

And in most of those places women are worth half a man and gays are thrown off roofs.

True though.

Look at the struggle for independence in Ireland. One person's freedom fighter is another's terrorist and one person's liberal democracy can be another's imperialist power.

left: woman in front of flag of her country holding a gun and a bible
right: woman in front flags i do not recognise, also holding a gun as well as what i believe to be Quran

now i dont know the context of these images so the only differences i can judge are on an basic level of what the images contain, both woman are armed, both carry with them the book which serves as the foundation for their religious believes again i am guessing, i dont know whether either of the guns are real nor whether these woman are christian/muslim and both stand in front of a flag, on a first glance the images are certainly very similar

i believe the actual point to be contain within the meaning of the items tho and as i dont know these meanings i can only guess , whether the gun is to be used for defense or aggression can be one of the key differences, as can the contents of the respective books they carry

tl;dr you dont supply much that gives basis to form a proper opinion, so yeah the images have many similarities

I don't think it's a problem. Machines make people's jobs easier meaning less people can produce more. This hasn't resulted in mass unemployment.

Idk, i see it a different way. Advancements in plow design made the workload easier on the horses, but tractors made them irrelevant.

I think companies will replace humans with delivery drones, self driving vehicles, and self serve kiosks. I don't believe we will be irrelevant, but there will be a big drop in low skilled jobs

people necessarily have to learn new skills when old ones become obsolete. I don't think we should prop up them up just to keep their jobs. We end up falling behind like that

They'll take over jobs in like shops and stuff but repair people like plumbers and stuff are safe for a good while.

Basically, raise the average for educational success by creating more effective programs to have people be trained as tradesmen (which could even include being the technicians of those same robots) as early as possible.
When being able to work harder is an impossible task, train the populace to work smarter. Obviously it's not as simple as I'm making it sound, and there's pitfalls that will still occur, but it is possible to reduce the impending unemployment that would occur should robots actually be affordable enough to acquire and maintain over simply taking in rollover risk.

a war of man versus machine, obviously if you want to have a job, you have to make sure that you are qualified for a job and if the requirements change you have to adapt

Making sure you're qualified for new jobs might be okay for some, but large portions of the population won't be able to support their families. Too much competition.

so what are you suggesting? simply get rid of the competition? Or, as machines now do all the work, supply everyone with enough money to live?

there is a lot of competition on the market already and if you don't want to be left behind by new trends you better start adapting now, i dont have a proper suggestion other than letting companies employ who they want, whether man or machine is unimportant, the answer will be the one that makes the most profit

Pretty proud of these results. Didn't have much in species preference, but only because I kept killing criminals in favour of puppers.

2012 GOP: "We need to get the government out of the economy and create a more friendly environment to do business in the US. Voluntary exchange makes us all better off"

2016 GOP: "How dare businesses engage in international commerce to increase profits for their company and their community! We need to punish them."

What do you mean by "community"? The international clique has no "community" in the geographical sense.

It does in the economic sense. Let's say a company moves a factory to Mexico. It can now produce more at a lower cost. It now can offer its goods here in America at a lower price. Consumer surplus has increased. Consumers now have more disposable income for other things that they want. Those companies profits increase as a result. They can now expand their businesses hiring more workers in the process. I think you're overthinking what I meant by community.

How is saying "We'll all be equal when we're the same" different from "Your differences from me are the problem"? Sounds a lot more intolerant when you put it that way.

well 90% of me think you just want to provoke a reaction, but 10% still think you are actually this retarded, so i'll break it down for you:

the first phrase is completely non judgemental, it simply states a fact, www.dictionary.com/browse/equal www.dictionary.com/browse/same both equal and same are synonyms, the statement doesn't change whether you say "We'll all be the same when we're the same" or "We'll all be equal when we're equal" it still states that without differences there are no differences, as i said, this is a fact, facts cannot be tolerant nor can they be intolerant, they simply are, whether you like them or feel good about them or not

where as the second statement is obviously judgemental, unlike the first one it mentions the existence of a problem caused by the differences between two individuals, explicitly pointing out that the other, not the individual making the statement is the issue, now without context this again is not intolerant, the first individual can be grounded in facts with his statement or not, ergo be not intolerant or be intolerant completely depending on the scenario in which the statement is made

the sole topic you mentioned was the amount of "intolerance" contained within the two statements, i discussed the give topic in the way you asked.
