And also:
Wikileaks (Russia->Wikileaks->releases info->Clinton loses)
Alex Jones ^^

It caught my attention how Bernie Sanders looks at Sweden and other Scandinavian countries as good examples of how he want the US to be, as I live here. The biggest problem seem to be his blindly global view of society, that you can put any government system on any place in the world (so in theory you could make North Korea capitalist, won't happen soon but you get the point). The main reason I think it has worked well here is because of the fact that the country is pretty much "built" on socialism. All the way back to like the 30s,40s,50s and on it has been socialistic. And I think Sweden, and other Scandinavian countries, has developed over time. And you look at USA's history, and it is clear that it is pretty different. Also the thing about "free college, healthcare" (actually "tax-paid", but I guess "free" sounds better to people) sure is nice Sweden. But the thing is that, whether you have it tax-paid or pay to private-owned company, you still have to pay! So it's just 2 different roads. And then different economist most surely have different views trying to say that either is better. But y, I'm kind of skeptic of how he paint up some utopia like that. Also worth noting is that Sweden (and maybe other Scandinavian countries, and European countries) has been at sort of a low point recently. With high unemployment rate, and having serious problems in various important sections (like with healthcare, and the "help to find a job" administration). So it's probably better to look at Sweden in the like 80s or 50s, when it was "on the way up", rather than now when it is "grey and bad socialism". I've also heard a politcal analyst from Azerbajdzjan, talking about how it is "impossible for Russia to be a liberal capitalist country. They tried it during the Yeltin presidency and it completely failed.". And that brings to theorize about if it is "impossible" for the US to be a socialist/communist nation. Pretty tough question. But during the year it has seemed as the world is some sort of political scale from Russia to US. Russia and China being Socialist/Communist, US being Capitalist/Market-Liberal, and Europe in between. Crazy how it lined up like that.

Sry for double-post (but seems like I care so much about this topic, and was the only one posting in it).

Really been some drama here in Sweden recently. Usually the whole Scandinavia is pretty calm place, but recently there's been some military issues. We had a big defense exercise with other NATO-countries and neighbor countries. And it's so comical because first of they're doing an exercise and against Russi.. I meant "Land A" (definetly not Russia... just have the borders as it...). And secondly, Russia also did an exercise shortly after ours. And the big thing/question seems to be "Who controls The Baltic Sea?". No country really does control it, but you get the feeling that some countries are stretching their arms trying to fully grasp it. Going back in history, at one time we (Sweden) almost own the entire sea at the "era of great power". But obviously that's history. The current issue seems to be the "NATO vs Russia (and allies)" thing. And that is more complicated for us (Sweden) and also Finland. Because were both neutral when it comes to military alliances (at least "tries to be neutral"). But then you also have former Soviet countries (the Baltic countries) who has joined both the EU and NATO, so clearly has switched side. And then Russia also has a smal portion of land that borders the sea. So no-one really "owns" it by any means. NATO and the EU seem to have the most influence over it. But I'm more concerned about there being a sort of "battle" over it in the first place, as I said earlier that this part of the world is usually relatively calm. I mean if you're from the US you probably care less about there being a military exercise as the US has been/is still the "world police". But living in the world's most peaceful place, it does concern me a bit. But hopefully it'll return back to a more stable and calm situation in the future.

Is it true that Switzerland have direct democracy?

I'm about 150 pages into Hillary Rodham Clinton's new book

It's surprisingly a fun read for me
I read a bit in Trump's "Art of the Deal", but got bored after a while as it seemed to just be a autobiography more or the less. The 2nd chapter was kind of cool as it kind of tells you the "secrets" (according to him) in making a good deal/being successful. But y, seems a lot like an autobiography that maybe teaches you how to become a successful businessman.


Also the new leader (it's not confirmed but it's pretty obvious who it is) of The Moderate party seems just more legit, the more I see and hear from him. He radiate a sense of calm, trustworthiness and intelligence. I think he can overcome the challenges the party is facing: Get back the vote support, heal and cement the center-right alliance, challenge the left-socialist block for the election next year. And if they do this, the support for the radical Sweden-democrats will probably shrink. And hopefully we'll have a new center-right government next year. It's literally 2 flies in 1 hit.

Sounds extremely unnecessary
Probably some old election that nobody have cared to abolish. Like "let's just leave it there. If you want to vote/cares for the church then fine. If not, then -who cares".



I took a look at the Swedish parties facebook-pages to get a glimpse of which one I seem to think is the best, by just the appearance of them. And here is what I found:


Left Party: Cares about the healthcare and more about the healthcare, and some economic equality.
The Environmental Party: Oh, it's green again rather than rainbow-colored, ...or at least I think it is. And it no longer has a hawkish cold leadership... And cares about "average person environmental issues"... oh it is as it use to be, just more boring... and just sucks...
The Socialist Party: I wonder how many times they used the word "equality". ...like I care about that... Also had some fancy poster about taking care about the lower-class people and workers (shows how much they really care about workers and lower-class people). And also had one where they show that they care about companies (Oh so they're both workers party and company party. Actually more like: "It's good to ave a company. And it's even better if the state owns the company (hehehe xD)".
---------------------------------------------------------------------------The Left-Right block-line--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Center Party: Cares about the companies, small companies and also the environment, the countryside and some other stuff. Really a mixed-bag party.
The Liberal Party: (With bold leader-esque tone) "The School, the school. Law and order". A lot comes from the party's leader having a solid "straight-shooter" leadership. Both The Center Party and The Liberal Party are pretty similar politically, but their image shows a very stark difference: The Center Party is the "soft and nice party" while The Liberal Party is the "Hard and straight to the point" party. Also almost ironical how both parties literally confirm gender stereotypes as The Center Party's leader is a woman and The Liberal Party's leader is a man.
The Christian Democrats: The "Nice and small flower at the window-shelf"-party. Like cares a lot about elderly/retired people and the medic care. But the thing is that they're such a small party barely getting over the 4% bar (which is needed to get into the government). And it probably has to do with the timidness at the party and it's similarity with the big right party "the moderates".
The Moderates: Really the firm conservative party that cares about: Law and order, immigration (the immigration problem), against begging on the street, entrepreneurship, free will (to choose school and etc.). Also really demonizes allowances like "Oh you get free money by not working. That's wrong! You shouldn't be able to get any crops if you don't sow any.". So sort of a "police party" if you want to see it that way. Also seem to have some ideological struggle and just struggle in general; as the party has lost support and it's placing as 2nd biggest party (after The Socialist Party) and having a struggle inside the party between liberals and conservative. They also are going to get a new party leader, as the previous failed. And he has a challenge to bring the party together which he seemed to care for talking in a tv-interview about that liberalism and conservatism is "combination" that works really well.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------Other parties that doesn't have a clear "alliance" or cooperation with other parties------------------------------------
The Sweden Democrats: Only actually cares about 1 single issues: Immigration problems. Every post were literally about how migrants get allowances from the state, and how wrong that is. And also always put in cheesy romanticizing words about "Swedishness, Swedish culture, our heritage and etc.". And you still get some "nazi-vibes" from the party even though they've tried to clean up the party for like ...10 years or so (when they got over the 4% bar).


To me, it becomes clear that I'd either vote on The Moderates or The Christian Democrats in next election, if it remains as it is. Like the farther you go to the left, the more silly and stupid it seem to get. The things that I care about in the left (socialism) are: The idea of economic equality/the workers movement (so that company bosses don't becomes like "kings". And having the worker feel a sense of pride for what they work with like: I'm a proud [insert title here].), the "collective society" (that people are together as a society and not just individuals living their own life 1 by 1. The "United we stand, divided we fall" idea.). That is probably what made Sweden such a great socialistic country and why they ruled all the way from the 40-50s. But now they just seem so lame and boring, so I basically switched side as the Liberal-Conservative seem to actually make some sense.

Noticed that there is a small error in my arrangement of "End Credits" from Zelda: Twilight Princess: There's no "composed by" text. It only says "Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ohta & Koji Kondo" and not "Composed by Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ohta & Koji Kondo". A small formatting error that someone could fix.

The fuck is a church election lmao

You elect who'd govern the church (at local level, and at higher levels). As you can tell pretty weird and pointless.

bump. Anyone having anything to say about this "old" submission.

There were a lot of big things going on this past year and right now there are natural disasters everywhere, so I think everyone is feeling pretty stressed

Personally I kind of feel like my life is like I started out as Kirby, then developed into Meta Knight, and now going back to Kirby. So that's whats going on for me personally (it's a bit messy and confusing). But, I like that you agrees with me that this year has been stressful and "chaotic", it's like everyone just seem to have something that buggs people. you said natural disasters. I'm personally worried about a lot of political stuff. More specifically foreign politic stuff. It feels as the world has become less stable, and I really don't like that. There seem to be some constant fear of some large conflict erupting, or already bad situations worsening, and there seem to be little knowledge for the future, what's happening to [insert an area of the world]. Before it "felt" less stable (maybe it wasn't that stable, but it felt more, which matters to me).

Sorry for double-post, but I just want to get some stuff out of my mind/went some emotions. I've just really have had a turbulent time lately, and it's been a pain for me. Looking back, I feel like this year has been the most difficult year of my life, and really changed me. Some years ago everything very dark in my life, like some depression just hit me. But during this year I've felt so strange. I like the energy was off the roof. I kind of feel like it's a good thing, like I'm breaking some negative bubble I've been in. Even so returning to how I was when I was younger (I used to be quite happy and alright with my life back then, even though I had some issues then as well). but y, I've been feeling really restless and hyper-energetic recently. It feels like something good, like I'm breaking out of some negative bubble/spiral, but it also is very difficult to deal with in daily life, sometimes I get so restless when I'm supposed to not be that, like when being with friends or when I'm having a dinner with my family. I kind of see it as a sign of "growing up", feeling that I am a more responsible individual. But it does feel very different and really is "in the way" a lot of times. And it causes a lot of anxiety at times. Sometimes it feels like the final duel from Star Wars III between Anakin and Obi Wan in my brain. Obviously isn't that nice feeling like there's war inside my brain, but that's how I feel. And I kind of view it as I'm "growing up", but that it's a clash between the younger "youthful me" and the "adult me" (and I also see some "really young me" there at times). But y, really feel to talk about this as it seems to be a good way of getting stuff out of my mind.

Also: Am I the only one feeling like this year has just been stressful and different? Is it just me?

you're blowing my mind

Were you serious or sarcastic?

edit:

Also voted in the church election today. Voted for "frimodig kyrka" (frank/outspoken church). Which basically is a non-political-party conservative party (that sounded weird phrasing). I really don't care about this election, as it really is a minor one (the real election and even the EU-election are more important). But the reason I care this year is because that the political parties (and perhaps also the media, and people in general) have made it into a such a big deal. And it feels like they're using the election, tactically, in order to win more "political ground" which just seem borderline immoral to me. And even though they care, they barely have anything to say what they want with the election. In the real election the parties make big headlines and promises like: "were going to create [big number] jobs!", "we'll take care of and improve the school, the the medic care, the care for older people!" and "we'll do x,y,z reforms which will help everyone/you in some way!". But in this election they just say wage things like the socialist party talking about some "peoples church" "for everyone". And the national-conservative party talking about "allowing conservative views" and "making the church as a place to value/preserve Swedish culture". And the liberal-conservative parties just seem to minor stuff like: building some new parks, and also want less political influence in the church. But it really seems so stupid this election. And it does encapsulate the times we live and the politics of today pretty much: That everything (political) and every election is like a big decisive battle between good and evil. Before it was just: you vote for a party and either your party wins, or it loses. And if it wins you might get happy if you made the right decision/they kept their promises. And if it loses you probably get more or less disappointed. But now it feel like everything is much more hysterical/hyped up. Like "Omg thanks god x party won" or "this party won, but didn't get enough votes to create a majority (has to cooperate with other parties). A sure tough challenge. Wishes them all the best!". Like before people didn't even care that much for politics, now it's this crazy battle.

yeah but league is better than dota
As a gamer who has played League extensively and has never seen nor touched DotA at all, I can proudly affirm that League is superior to DotA in every way.

Nope, Dota is the real OG. Played it all the way since the Warcraft 3 days, when it was Dota 1. So you won't really convince me to change/switch!

You could try picking up fire emblem.

Might try this one. Seems pretty legit.

After playing a bunch of Dota 2, I just got soooo nostalgic for Warcraft and Warcraft 3. Remembering the really good time I had playing it, I must have spent hundreds of hours on that game. And, if Blizzard would make a Warcraft 4, I sure as hell buy it! I'd buy the fucking limited edition special box-thing edition, just to give them money XD! I just love the game. The strategy game, combined with awesome netplay, just perfect. Is there anyone who knows some good strategy game? Preferably new, and fantasy-esque. Getting a bit bored on playing Dota and other games...
