In the past few years with the migrant crisis on our hands the European People's Party frequently pulled out the idea that the Fidesz should be booted out of it's members. Never went through with it. Now they threatened again, here's the result (in English):
Basically Fidesz said they gave up their rights in the Party temporarily also leave the Soros financed Central European University alone. This allowed the EPP not going through with the threat but also can pretend they punished the renitent Fidesz who in return can boast the solution of their problem was theirs.

So nothing of importance happens and everyone claims victory. In terms of pure negotiation, this is the perfect deal. Obviously the problem remains and continues to grow but everyone is happy in the short term.
But in all seriousness, what difference does it make if Fidesz is or is not within the EPP?

On the practical side I can count one effect of this deal: the opposing Hungarian media (mostly the left-liberals, the right-radical parties and groups have little media influence) can't gloat on how the Fidesz was booted out for it's evil deeds, can't forge political capital from the judgement, and can't simply just tell people: "see how evil the Fidesz, even their best pals condemn their tyranny!"
Hmm, we have an expression: "salami-tactic", which refers to the way how a rod of salami cut into slices. Leftist parties does the same since forever: they see their enemies as a nice piece of salami and they poke at one end and declare: "those guys are fascists!" Then the rest of the salami quickly dissociates themselves from the "fascists" to save themselves of being accused as fascist. The leftists are glad they managed to cut a slice away and see their tactic is working so they poke at the next on the end where they started and declare: "those guys are fascists!" And the process goes on until the whole body of enemies are gulaged and hanged. Divide et impera.
I see they doing this in case of the EPP. Since not just the Hungarian liberal media attacks the Fidesz, but foreign, western ones, they also attack the EPP. They say "Orbán is a fascist" and this looks bad for the EPP, and the EPP knows it. They have to do something but they won't let themselves to salami up.
But back to the practical side, I don't really know what's the deal. The Fidesz had to give up some rights in the party (temporarily) but I can't measure it's weight. Maybe being in the EPP matters because it's the biggest party group in the EU. Juncker, Tusk and Tajani are all EPP members, they held key positions. Maybe it matters on the level of how the EU gibsmedats are distributed, countries led by EPP members might get more if the EPP has major say in the EU's budget? I dunno.

Brexit isn't happening.

Let me tell you what's going to happen and it's been planned from the start:
1) A "no deal" Brexit is denied by politicians. A terrible deal is deliberately made.
2) Voters are given a second referendum between Brexit with terrible deal or no Brexit.
3) Voters basically have to choose between remain or worse economy with still more immigrants. It's win win for the multi-nat powers that control Britain and Europe.
4) The result is so disastrous no other nation offers voters the choice.
5) Average voters are such cattle they won't vote for UKIP or anything other than the main 3-4 parties.

Since when? How can they be accused with anti-semitism? With both Hungarian Jewish community and Israel Orbán's relation is great, harmonic. Where does this shit come from?

Can happen.But I have to ask what do you base this on? Is there news about a second referendum? Not just speculation but has anyone (for example in the Commons) said such thing?

Well yeah, after a while certain words can lose the original meaning and become simple derogatory terms. I don't think it is extended to anti-Arabs as well (Orbán isn't even anti-Arab to be honest) we (as in my family) speculate in this case anti-Semite is a substitute of anti-Soros. The problem with this in no govt. propaganda appears Soros' Jewish background.
Politico is clearly not written for the Hungarian people, it's for Westerners who know nothing about our country and Orbán can be demonized with painting him as an anti-Semite.

Nothing. However, I have noticed lots of heel dragging and mentions of taking a 'no deal' Brexit off the table in the news. This combined with Soros dumping lots of money into Best for Britain to try and push a second referendum makes me think, that's the way it's going.

Haha, Corbyn too is such a slimebag. Vote against every deal May tries to put on table then rejects no-deal to put the pressure on, accuse May with incompetency to make a deal and leans back to watch May squirm.

Btw Guardian article:
>Downing Street said it had no qualms about the Soros donations to Best for Britain. “There are many political and campaign groups in this country – that’s entirely right and as you would expect in a democracy,” a spokesman said.
So some foreign dude funding political groups to influence the outcome of an important event in a country he has nothing to do with is totally acceptable in a democracy.

Read these two articles:
...and am very smart now.
On one hand for a no-deal Brexit the Commons would have to agree to do so. It won't.
On the other hand for a second referendum the Commons should vote to hold one. Do I remember right and the first one was initiated by the people after a successful signature gathering?
Here: >>24038 the first article says they wanted to vote if they want a no-Brexit deal, however Politico says up for this day no binding decision was made.
Today they also vote on some shit like alternative Brexit deals supposedly at 10pm local time which is now or more precisely they already should have voted. I assume those alternative deals will be also turned down. But the second referendum is also on the table. Exciting.

Justice in work I see.

So yesterday's vote was about if the Commons want to take over tailoring the deal themselves, and vote on a series of question if they want this or that oooor if they want to push a second referendum. They do this in the next couple of days. Since 29th March is on Friday.
It will also be asked (I expect) if no-deal is on the table but I'm not seeing ensured the reply will be binding, we'll see.
It is also can happen that the Commons can't accept any other deal, then they have to back May's unless they vote for second referendum.
The question of the latter is not a simple one, since even parties are divided, some MP's want Brexit, some not, even the Labour has Brexiteer members. My prediction they will turn down a second plebiscite because while there are Tories who doesn't support Brexit some of them stands beside the first one. Maybe all will insist on keep going instead turning to the people.
Corbyn goes one step further:
>"whether any deal should be put to the people for a confirmatory vote.”
So even the Commons agrees on a deal, now he puts forward the idea even that one has to be approved by the people. Very Democratic. Kek. What a slimebag. Frankly this would fit the bill of obstructionism but he doesn't really says they should do it he just contemplates if they should do it. So basically he doesn't really say anything.
But all this is bullshit anyway. Even if the Commons agrees on an alternative way the EU might not. Most likely not since they had an agreement with May's plan, it was fine, only the Commons didn't accept it. So again, back to May's plan.

Pic related, it was rigged by Catholics and penguins.
>while there are Tories who doesn't support Brexit some of them stands beside the first one. Maybe all will insist on keep going instead turning to the people.
Even many of those who don't support Brexit would probably still prefer to honour the result of the first vote. May herself, for example. To me the idea of a second referendum still seems unlikely even with all the chaos happening currently.
>it was fine
People disagreed with her deal because it involved remaining in the single market and customs union for at least another 2 years (possibly indefinitely if no other partnership could be reached) to resolve the Ireland border issue. So we would still be pretty much in the EU while still also having to pay the £39 billion and without any right to vote on the laws they would still be applying to us. The whole reason people voted to leave in the first place was for more control over our laws and borders (especially with regards to immigration) which her deal isn't offering, hence the historic defeat in parliament.

Yeah of course, but it's worth pointing out why it wasn't fine for pretty much everyone else. I guess the problem we're facing is like >>24016 posted where the choice is between either a shitty deal or no deal (or possibly a second referendum). But it's nothing new, democracy is always about picking the least shit option rather than the best one.

Politico pumped out a bunch of articles. To sum up: govt rejects a second referendum, Labour too, May gets more support for her solution, voices from EU changing their tune from urging for decision to "let's hear the opinion of those who want to revoke Article 50". Interesting.

But here's my opinion as Hungarian on Brexit.
For us a successful Brexit with a Britain that's doing all right will be the best outcome. Why? Because then we (and all the Eastern EU countries) would gain a leverage against Fronce and Germany and could hold leaving as a threat if centralization of the EU would rise or against any other chickenshit. It would be a sign that there is life outside EU, an alternative, a passable road. Without such, the more powerful EU members can boss around us.
And in case of a worst case scenario we could still leave the EU and would have partners other than Belorussia and Russia...
So any Hungarian who doesn't support Brexit is in fact working against our country and her sovereignty.

These days are about Brexit.
Some curiosity there - for me at least. So they didn't agree on anything, so May's deal back on the table they'll vote on Monday. But the deadline is tomorrow, so the new deadline entered in effect? But then which one? April 12 or May 22 (haha, is this a joke on the British PM and Catch 22)? I also want to point it out that they didn't vote on a second referendum but a "confirmatory referendum on any Brexit deal" - the two seems quite different. While the first one would suggest to ask the people again if they want the Brexit or not, while the second is about the confirmation of the deal the Commons agrees on, this is what was Corbyn talked about. Do I misunderstand something? Nevertheless they rejected the cancellation of Brexit so there would be no vote referendum on this.
I think the DUP will give in and accept May's deal despite the backstop. I think they just want to play hard to get and elongate the courtship so they can say something that polish their image (and ego)-

Still Brexit, they need to accept the "Withdrawal Agreement" so they can leave (?) on 22 May.
My problem with this whole Brexit thing, that the media just muddles the water and even when they write such articles as "explained" than they just explain the latest buzzwords but leave out other important infos. For example why didn't they told beforehand that the Commons only have to accept this so called Withdrawal Agreement? Well I know, because they wanted to inflate the drama about accepting a deal until today.
All right I don't read constantly politics just try to inform myself so I can post something about a matter when it arises, so I might missed something. Maybe it was told two years ago somewhere I dunno.

Oh, turns out May's deal is called Withdrawal Agreement...

If I remember right the article wrote something what implied the new deadline is in effect. I questioned that one.
Yeah they voted today not long ago I think, I searched for Live broadcast and they are interviewing MPs after the vote. They turned it down. And since they had to agree on a deal by today but they didn't now they have the deadline of April 12.
So they have two weeks to come up with something. But this also can be interpreted as agree on canceling Article 50. Tories very vocal about keep the Brexit going however.
They might will be able to force Labour to accept something because Labour don't want hard Brexit. Or do they? Hard Brexit would surely result a Tory downfall, and excellent opportunity to take over the governing. On the other hand it would be easy to blame them as the ones who didn't accept any deals.
But wait a minute. Originally they should have agreed on a deal for today so the Brexit could be realized. So if they had agreed on something - let's say on May's deal - why the fuck would have given the EU them an extension? Shouldn't the Brexit have gone on is this sentence grammatically correct as planned?

I'm seriously considering I'll only talk about Brexit again if it's really done. Never?

It's hard to say. He is going without proper team and real program, it is somewhat protest vote. His alignment is unclear, because he said different things through the campaign.

Russian media somewhat supports him, although he isn't "pro-russian" candidate like people from east Ukraine. Maybe this is situation like "look, they are so crazy so they'll elect the movie star, also look how they hate evil corrupt Poroshenko". In past Timoshenko was considered a Russian-friendly candidate though.

It looks like small version of Trump campaign, when media got mostly positive news about him and some official people openly cheered when he was elected (and then they discovered that he isn't pro-Russian at all, but it was too late).

And there might be considerations in relation Brexit many MPs don't want to express straight.

Didn't the EU already say they wouldn't let them join if they left the UK? I think Spain were worried about the idea because it would encourage Catalans to do the same.
The worst part is that our incompetence is very much a good thing to the EU because it discourages other anti-EU countries from leaving. Of course that's if their governments would even give them a referendum in the first place, as we only had one thanks to a failed bid for power from the Conservatives.

Nothing is carved in stone, and those with such opinion might don't matter in the future, who knows what it holds. I think for such prohibition at least the EP should vote.
>it discourages other anti-EU countries from leaving.
True. They can just point it out how they make the mighty UK choke on their dicks how would fare that puny X or Y country.

What do you mean?

>they do it all the time. It's like a dog who barks doesn't bite.
Probably they try to use it as leverage, ofc they won't do it as long as they get what they want. Or get something close to that, such is the way of compromising.

Is that decision binding? Because they voted down a no-deal brexit several (3? 4?) times now, but none of them led to mandatory result.

I saw two different interpretation of a second referendum, but I can imagine a third one.
The first is when they would ask the people again if they want Brexit.
The second would be the people vote the deal the Commons agreed upon beforehand to confirm it if they want it.
The third one would be several questions, basically the list of possible options of the deal and two more questions: if they would accept no-deal, or if they see it desirable to cancel Article 50. Or something like this.

Bolsonaro sacked Education Minister Vélez Rodriguez. Despite decades of experience as a professor, he proved unable to handle a ministerial team drawn from his own contacts, Olavo de Carvalho's acolytes and military officers. Very little was actually done under his tenure and he kept sacking subordinates and changing his mind about appointments. Rodriguez, along with foreign minister Araújo, was one of the Olavist faction's positions in the cabinet.
His replacement is Abraham Weintraub, a dark horse who wasn't cited among the potential picks (the minister's dismissal was expected for a week). When asked about his position on de Carvalho, Weintraub cryptically answered "I appreciate both classical and rock music".

Surprisingly a plethora of parties are participating in the Israeli legislative election with real chance to acquire seats in the Knesset. Right now thirteen parties have members there, it is basically impossible for one party gaining 50% + 1 seat of the 120 available.
I would list these parties but all kinds of party alliances makes the thing a little confusing and I've no time now to solve this puzzle.
Bibi's party, he Likud is the biggest one, right now with the most seats. Their main opponent is Labor but during this election it seems a freshly formed party alliance, the centrist Blue and White party, pose the biggest threat, led by a certain Benjamin "Benny" Gantz, a former chief of staff and who enjoys the support of prominent military figures. Still, according an article's title on Haaretz's home page a coalition is possible between Bibi and Benny.

I call it the natural -and completely unstoppable- expansion of civilization.

My friends, the land I identify with, the books I read the culture I'm immersed in and my life itself with would never have existed at if not for the clearing of large tracts of the Atlantic rainforest which used to cover all the east coast, and the same will happen for the Amazon.

I think the least likely outcome is no-deal Brexit. The most likely is extending the extensions and then next UK government can backpedal on the deal, and UK remains.

News of the week is that Dias Toffoli, head of the Supreme Court, was one of the cryptic individuals referred to by codenames in Odebrecht emails. His codename was "my father's friend's friend". By contrast Lula's codename was simply "friend". Those codenames became notorious after it was revealed that Odebrecht had an entire department staffed for the sole purpose of handling its bribes and assigned codenames to the prominent figures it associated with. Low-ranking employess in the bribery department only knew the codenames and not the people behind them.
But this codename wasn't part of the main bribery scheme itself and was instead related to the construction of a dam. What exactly transpired in the dam's construction, Toffoli's role and whatever shady deal he made with Odebrecht are not yet known.

Yeah. Tight results expected, some polls say:
Social Democrats 19%

National Coalition 15.9%
Center 14.5%
Others show different numbers to the latter three but the SDP has a sure lead. But the real question could it form government? Last time the last three was on government together, until the Finns left. Even with 20% the SDP would need bout 4 parties to join in since only the Green League can expect above 10% result and the others are way below of it. Maybe SDP could form a coalition with Center, it is the closest to them from the three.

If he doesn't get a new condemnation, that is, and he may very well gain another as he's under judgement on half a dozen other charges of corruption.

I think I would need to register too first.

I don't vote on Hungarian parliamentary elections, I consider the current system illegitimate, municipal elections would be different but the parties are the same. I have reservations against the European Union too, tho I acknowledge that here in Central Eastern Europe we would need something like this anyway. But we don't, just this pile of horse manure.
Ofc there's no party I would support with absolutely clear conscience, so that's there too.

No. You can vote on any party of any country without being citizen, but local address and registration needed.

Since I don't vote for communist (Munkáspárt = Worker's Party) the only one left is the Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) but I have problems with that too (yeah they are /pol/-tier meme party). Maybe Jobbik but no. All the others I wouldn't take them into consideration, not for one moment.
There's the MKKP, the joke party, but it was more sympathetic when that dude did his actions alone just for the heck of it and not for political ambitions.

No. When I started my voting career I voted MIÉP. Jobbik took it's place on the palette but it always smelt bad. Maybe because of it's Fidesz origin, or because of the leading staff, or because of the kuruc.info, or because of all the people who wouldn't belong to that part of the political spectrum. I dunno.
Now I also don't agree with them getting all warmed together with the other opposing parties (socialists and liberals) during the last election. They lost face in the public eye with that move, no result to show and they didn't gain anything only their party got split. They should have remain independent from them, that way they would still have dignity. Well if we can talk about that in case of a political party.

As long as you aren't finished with the army, you get to keep your AR. New laws won't change this. So I still have an AR from the Swiss army at home. In Switzerland you go back to the army for 3 weeks every year until you have served the necessary days corresponding to your rank. If you want to keep it after you are finished with the army you have to go voluntarily to a second organised shooting next to the mandatory one and you need to apply for a gun permit. They will also turn off the automatic feature for those who want to keep it, so you can only shoot single shots. Easiest way to keep your gun is to join a shooting club, they exist in every village and you get to train with other people.
Swiss people voted in favor of the new law, so we can keep using the EU database for criminals and can send refugees back to Italy when their fingerprints were registered there first. I won't complain, 66% said yes and at least we get to vote on such referendums all the time.
I'm a pretty bad shooter, I hate cleaning my AR, so I won't keep it. But this reminds me that I still have to go to the shooting range next month to shoot the mandatory 20 shots on a 300 meter target.

I missed out too.
I think EU elections are unpopular in Eastern EU.

According to an exit poll:
- Fidesz won 14 seats
- DK, MSZP (two "socialist") and Jobbik 2-2-2
- Momentum (young liberals) 1
- LMP, Mi Hazánk, MKKP didn't get enough for a seat.
But this still isn't the real result. Sounds plausible tho.

Bernd 05/26/2019 (Sun) 21:13:27 [Preview] No.26681 del
So it seems our seats will be divided like this:
Fidesz 13
DK 4
Momentum 2
Jobbik 1

Fidesz could mobilize well, the higher turnouts mostly from places that traditionally supports them.
LMP is the biggest loser of this election. They have a solid place in our parliament, but this means they're losing support. There were some losses in their leadership too, maybe people who preferred those guys stopped supporting the party. They also can't provide anything substantial to the people. What I heard today with half ear they try to push the environmentalism line, a green party and all that, but "fighting against climate change" is just too abstract for the people who care more about their day to day life.
The surprise is the DK. They are those spineless "socialists" who crashed the country back in 2006-2008. Some people (not even a few) are still capable of voting for them.

These journalists ought to be more educated than the average people, they should know that if two opinions exist about how a thing should be done, it doesn't mean that one of these opinions is against the thing itself. For example if we look back to ancient Athens at the rivalry of Themistocles and Aristides we see how their opinion collides, but both kept in mind Athens' interest. Tho Themistocles got the chance to proved to be right, and he was, we can see that Aristides wasn't against Athens either. So do these journalists really think that those who oppose the centralization are really want to quit EU or dissolve it? This is how the common people think and those who try to inform them about the world should be above this level.
But this is how we can know that these journalists aren't there to make information available but to shape the opinion of those whom they can reach.

some observations from the elections:
liberals won the most new seats thanks to macaroni bringing them seats from frons, they can choose witch side they want to support
rightwing/populists/anti-EU parties didn't win as much as expected
British youtubers Sargon and Count Dankula miserably failed
Zoomers (young women in particular) love the Green party and generated some buzz against the Christian parties because of the upload filter
voter turnout was with 51% really high

Yeah, liberals won big time, since green also liberal, just usually with some economically socialist ideas.
EPP is in a tight place now. They don't want join forces with "euroskeptics" but conservatives are way to few, they need the liberals and greens. If they really want to take away the sovereignty of the members state they better make a deal with socdems to gain 2/3. I dunno how significant that is in the EP but usually it is.

I think basically more than half the MP's don't want it, and many lobbyist groups and the EU with politicians and power groups neither who can influence them one way or another.
People doesn't matter much, they don't even know what they want and can't really know. Maybe they'd do just fine outside the EU but media constantly preaches doom. And media what's the media said and the truth only can align by chance.

Something relevant did happen: Mercosul has finally concluded a trade agreement with the European Union after 20 years of negotiation. European manufactured goods will flow in more easily and agricultural exports will increase. Some European farmers didn't like this.

I'm guessing sugar is one important item.

Few years ago there was some problems with Brazilian sugar, and Europe shat itself where we gonna find enough. We could have supplied if we still had it but we didn't. Oh well.

Musing about how crappy must be to be a politician. Everywhere you go everyone wants something from you. If you're corrupt crook good for you, you can exploit people for your gain by promise everything and giving nothing (since you don't really have nothing to give, only empty promises, it is impossible to please/help everyone).
On the other hand if you're want to do an honest work... you're out of luck, you listen one people and try to help that one, suddenly 10 jumps up and demands the same or says what you do hurts others (them) or demand you to stop wasting the community's resources on one people, etc. So in the end you couldn't do anything just give empty promises.

Servant of the People - 43%, new guys, the new prez's party, maybe liberal populist or something, since it seems the campaigned with the criticism of the previous government, they doesn't seem to offer one complete package of ideology just nice tunes like anti-corruption and such

It isn't just a silly name. Zelensky was a comedy actor, and he has popular TV series about politics where he was a president. It was called "servant of the people": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Servant_of_the_People

Considering naming, phrase "servant of the people" (or "nation") is common in Russian (and Ukrainian), it means that "president/government official/deputy/etc is the servant of the people". Some sources say that this was from some Stalin speech about elections in 30s (actually, USSR had elections on almost every level, although most of them had single candidate).

It is often used comically in jokes about comparison what normal people have and what "servants of the people" have, because it is fun to see how "servants" have much more than those who they serve. Like people walking on streets and servants of the people driving luxury cars.

Ofc they were all lefties what else and tried to burn him but he reversed the roles and trolled them hard.

They were in a comfortable position at the beginning of the 20th century but then got outpaced by everyone else. The country went through the same phases as the rest of the continent -populist nationalism in the middle, juntas and then liberal reform, with a decay of uncompetitive industries built up in the previous two periods- but with a high overall level of political instability, nonstop coups and a tradition of populism. Nowadays despite its higher HDI and GDP per capita it's in some respects less developed than Brazil.
From what I heard of Kirchner at the time of her rule she had the usual populist approach to the country's usual high inflation and debt problems aswell as clashes with agribusiness and manipulation of economic data. At the time of her downfall there was already an acute crisis. Under Macri the situation looked promising for a while and then collapsed again.

Austria preparing for parliamentary elections this month. This is a snap one, the governing coalition crumbled it seems just the same as in Italy, what's going on???. I dunno what do they expect, the last govt was a ÖVP-FPÖ coalition, judging by the polls the next one can only be another ÖVP-FPÖ coalition...
The usual short who-is-who:
ÖVP - Conservatives, if the FPÖ weren't they would be called Nazis.
SPÖ - Socies.
FPÖ - Literally Hitler. The usual right wing populist who gets the fascist label. I don't know too much about Austrian politics (I know this was Haider's party) but I would place them between the Fidesz and the Jobbik and the palette.
Die Grünen - Greens, liberal, because it's so trendy now.
NEOS - A fairly new liberal party. They managed to pick a colour for themselves which almost rivals the Deutsche Telekom's in ugliness.
JETZT - Newest party, also green but more on the left than the Grünen.
Several female leading politicians and chairwomen participating in this election, but I'm not impressed, they are too old and too... Austrian looking.

We're gonna have election too, in October, a municipal one. I expect wide Fidesz success. Budapest is the most important place ofc, not sure how that will play out, liberals and socialists are both strong there.

Switzerland has regular elections in October, I'll make a post about it.
West-Australia-Hungary has snap elections, because FPÖ was stupid enough to get caught doing stupid things (Ibiza video). Kurz threw out Strache and literally Hitler Kickl. Kickl dindu nuffin, so FPÖ left the coalition and voted against Kurz as revenge, so he wasn't chancellor the last few months. That gave him more time to do campaigning. Compared to other rightwing populists the FPÖ are literally literal nazis, founded by ex-nazis, with the goal to rejoin Groß-Deutschland. Jetzt isn't a new party, just a rebrand of Liste Pilz. They made it into the parliament last elections as Liste Pilz. Pilz left the Green party because they didn't want him as candidate and he wasn't progressive enough. After a few months Pilz was me too'd as allegations of sexual misconduct were made against him. Greens and NEOS are the only parties that aren't corrupt (they didn't had the chance yet as they were always in the opposition). Austria is pretty corrupt and centralized compared to Switzerland and Germany.

Switzerland has a two chamber system. Each canton has a number of seats corresponding to its number of inhabitants in the national assembly and 2 seats in the council of states. Swiss electoral districts correspond to the Cantons. So center parties usually win the seats in small cantons for the national assembly and the 2 seats for the 2nd chamber. This doesn't correspond to the percentage each party gets, but that's how it works. This led to the situation that the national assembly was center-right and council of states was center-left. So the parliament looks for solutions that appeal to a majority with compromises, because it has to survive facultative referendums too.
SVP/UDC - the mother of successful rightwing populist in Europe, libertarian, anti-EU, pro-farmers, throws out every one who sympathizes with literal nazis of the party
SP/PS - Socialist, doesn't suffer from weakness from German sister party, as they found a new voter base in the big cities and people who work in the public sector
FDP/PLR - Liberals, the old lady of Swiss parties, neoliberal pro business policies, came under pressure because they didn't care enough about the environment
CVP/PDC - Catholics, party in the middle, so you can't make new laws without them, they fell out of fashion
Greens - progressive environmentalists, has a number of organic farmers in their ranks, so they get votes in the countryside too
Green-liberals - a spin-off of former Greens, because the party was too socialist for them, attracts voters in the middle, pro homo marriage
BDP/PBD - not going to bother explaining, they are going to vanish, they missed the opportunity to unite with the Catholics into a new middle party

Hong Kong was promised full internal autonomy and the preservation of its institutions until 2047, it's a given that the mainland will assume total power at some point. However the CCP is hasty and wants to take over decades in advance. The local government is their puppet and implements Beijing's gradual takeover. However Beijing&the vassal government's latest move met a lot of resistance so they're taking a step back and waiting for the situation to cool down before they resume the takeover.

100 years of the treaty of Saint Germain, which sealed the official end of the Austria-Hungary empire. De facto it was already dead, but this made it official on an international level. France was so busy getting their revenge against Germany, that they forgot to claim any reparations from Austria. It defined the new borders of Austria and made them recognize new funny states. Who knew that some shitty war between Austria and Russia would have such consequences. Hungary was dealt with a bit later in the treaty of Tri-anon.

Well everyone is. It's inherent nature of every political group of trying to expropriate the exclusive right for making decisions. So saying they're authoritarian, means nothing.
But we should make it clear what we are talking about because I sense you are somewhat confused what's what. For me it's a little gnawed to the bone and our regulars here probably also get bored by me always saying the same thing, but there's always a confused newcomer.

Let's ignore left-right dichotomy for now, but let's take a look at the conservative-progressive one. Because the antithesis of conservative is not liberal, but progressive. Conservatives stick to the usual norms, progressives are looking at new possibilities.
Liberalism, socialism and nationalism are the three big main political ideologies which emerged during the so called age of enlightenment. At that time when the norm was feudal society, economy, and Christian Universalism, they were the bearer of progressive ideas. Noteworthy: these three ideologies aren't mutually exclusive, frankly they work best together.
Sadly nationalism was dropped after 1945 and the world was divided into liberal and a socialist camps. Then the biggest proponent of socialism collapsed and many converted to liberalism. Nationalism became a fringe ideology.
If we take a look at the United States we see two liberal parties competing with each other. Yes. Both Democrats and Republicans are liberals. They were during the Cold War, they are now. Except one supports a more classical from of liberalism, the other as a progressive line they took socialist phrases into their ideological toolset. This makes one side liberal (conservative), the other liberal socialist (progressive).
The end.

He is more like old-school hippie/commie combination, and his equality agenda is pretty plain and soft compared to modern internet abominations. Of course he is "close" to that movement ideologically, but he was more solid and rational in his views. At least he didn't propagate diversity for the sake of diversity and other #killdawhitey thing. And even had some classic hacker-male style with nerdish jokes and social ineptness, not like modern hipster-like bearded monkeys.

>I don't get it these SJW people, why they care if one fucks a 17 yo grill?

Shitstorm started not with age of consent thing, but rape thing. Stallman autistically analyzed situation with Minsky (that MIT guy), pointing that he may not know that these women were forced to do something and be underage. Most of discussion in media is taken out of context, although he openly presented libertarian views about topic in past (i.e. if two people want it, it is ok). They actually started to point at his old views when readers noticed that context thing.

>I dunno if he wrote a line of code these days or just traveled and popularized his ideas

He didn't do anything serious code-related for years. Emacs and GCC are maintained by other people, most of GNU tools are small and unnoticeable now (maybe except coreutils, but hey), and FSF positions are pretty shaky nowadays. Software world is slowly moved to corporation-sponsored "Open source" instead of classic Stallman's "Free software", GPL is going down and BSD/MIT licensing is growing. Most of large projects already made by large entities, and people stopped care about software freedoms (in Stallman terms) at all. This is offtopic discussion though.

I'm understanding Stallman's position, he could tell critics to fuck off, but in 2019 it is not allowed, when half of software-related userbase are SJWs, and other half are afraid to talk. Going into opposition means marginalizing FSF even more, and FSF is a "magnum opus" for Stallman, so he decided to resigns to save it. His left-leaning views are also influenced this decision, because it is hard to push back when you are attacked from "own" side.

We're having local elections today. We're voting for mayors and assembly members of each localities with the right of having a council or such self-governing bodies.
For the big picture going through the parties doesn't really matter, it's the Fidesz-KDNP against the opposition parties who tend to form unified front behind local candidates and ask their voters to support that one.
The opposition parties are include the socialists, liberals and the Jobbik. The Mi Hazánk Mozgalom (Our Homeland Movement) - which was founded by those radical members of the Jobbik who left the party - is generally against this collaboration and offers it's own candidates.
Other then these usually one or more independent candidates were campaigning, I think they often got the label as being Fidesz tools to divide the opposition.
Each of the local situations is way more colorful than this.
There are places where there's no real contestant against the mayor who "rules" since forever - this can be from any parties, usually in small settlements where everyone knows everybody, and they know the candidates like bad money.
I know at least one place where there's only two runner up for the mayorship. One from the Fidesz and one from the KDNP. The piquanterie of the situation is that the Fidesz-KDNP is basically one party masquerading as two.

Ofc Budapest is the most important of all places and an exciting one because the Fidesz is traditionally kinda weak there, it was always a liberal stronghold (the only one in the country) with patches of strong socialist support. I don't follow the thing that much but I'm confident the Fidesz will win there, that is the position of the Mayor of Budapest. The 23 boroughs all have their local mayors and many will be from the opposition.

My impression of the campaign (what reached me of it anyway) is that it was the most disgusting I've ever seen. Negative campaign with all kinds of shit flung over the place with the parties outbidding each other with promise of monetary support and shit like that. Demonization of candidates left and right. Blackmailing the voters by denying support and money from the Fidesz government if they elect opposition mayors and assemblies. Etc. etc.
Tho it seems they managed to mobilize voters, I just read in the news that the turnout is quite high for now.
I won't vote, despite my usual reason that I don't consider the regime and the system legitimate, this whole campaign started to turning me into a violent extremist. I'm glad it's over. Now comes the usual propaganda but for that I've the routine to shrug it off.

It even made it to the newspaper here, like the story of the Fidesz mayor of Györ fucking a prostitute during an orgy on a luxury yacht. Pretty hot stuff. Analysis was that Fidesz tries to fling dirt too to keep the normal and undecided voters at home, while their own voters go to the polling stations. They criticized the Green candidate for the mayor office of Budapest too, that he can't do shit against the socialist corruption in his city district, because he's depends on them.

Yeah, there was something about a sex tape or something. But maybe that was another case, not sure, it's a blur.
The liberals/greens are the next generation of them, only maybe the backing organizations, financiers, lobby groups behind them the same as was with the previous lib party, the SZDSZ. There are some overlapping in the staff, or the son of an older party member and some such, but way less luggage from the past governments from 2002-2010 (and 1994-98). However the socialists run people at the front who were the main generators of corruption and failure, most notably Gyurcsány, the ex-PM. And ofc all the cadre is the same with little rejuvenation. They are known thieves, except noone wants to put them behind bars.

In Poland big cities are like that or are becoming like that. Thankfully for local elections in my town not only such ideologies are not really propagated, but also the candidates are more likely to resign from their party career (regardless of which side they are coming from) and work together towards what's best for the local community.

Now let me present the situation in the polish parliamentary elections.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=xVDur6QA2OM [Embed]
In Sejm, which is the lower house of the parliament (and the most important tbh), there are 460 seats. The other one is Senat and has 100 seats. In order for a party to get a seat they need to acquire at least 5% of total votes.

The candidate parties are as follows:

Polskie Stronnictwo Ludowe (PSL, Polish People's Party). They were traditionally seen as a an agrarian party and had strong support from rural areas. Their history dates back to pre World War 2 era. At some point they were deleted by the gommies but came back in 1990. Their modern history is that no matter who is in the power, they will want to form a coalition and get some of the lucrative offices. Some people call them political whores because of that fact. others also accuse them of working like mafia, nepotism and corruption. I think they lost a lot of their rural voters for PiS over time. In polls they get around 8% of votes.

Prawo i Sprawiedliwość (PiS, Law and Justice). It's presented as right-wing christian conservative party. They are currently the party that is in power. The current president is also from this party. PiS is led by Jarosław Kaczyński, who is said to be the stronk political leader and maybe a dictator even, but he also generously decided to not become prime minister when they won the elections last time and pretend to be just another dude in the Sejm. Despite being branded as right-wing, they have also introduced quite a lot of solutions that could be seen as socialist. Examples are: monthly benefits for families with children, benefits for children starting school, benefits for pensioners. They are also currently promising to raise minimal wage to 4000PLN in 2023. For comparison, in 2017 minimal wage was 2000PLN. Apparently it would be the biggest rise in any country that ever existed and some experts alarm it's going to be very bad. Some also fear that this is a promise they will most likely fulfill.
Apart from that they also introduced, or are promising to introduce fore free market solutions. So far they made a cut tax for young working people, and something for small entrepreneurs too. As a 27 year old childless and wifeless worker I have so far missed all of their benefits.
They have traditionally been seen as christian and ally of the Catholic Church in Poland. However there has been small but nevertheless growing dissatisfaction with them from christian societies because of lack of any significant work in regards of abortion and increasing homozegs propaganda.
Polls give them ~45% of votes and basically everyone accepts that they are going to win. The real question I see in current situation is whether they will acquire the majority of parliament seats or not.

Bernd 10/13/2019 (Sun) 14:23:37 [Preview] No.30385 del
Konfederacja Wolność i Niepodległość (Confederation Freedom and Independence). It's a mix of various right-wing organizations who firstly decided to go together as one party on the last europarliament elections (they failed though). They are mostly composed of three groups.
First is Janusz Korwin-Mikke and his pals who are very pro free-market. He is quite a meme and some of you might recall him as he had some controversial speeches in euro parliament when he was deputy there few years ago.
Another group is National Movement. I don't recall them having very pro free market opinions, but also nothing in opposition to that, but what do they have in common for sure with Korwin is their dislike for current state of EU. They're mostly famous for organizing big yearly rally in Poland for Independence day which gathers more attendants that the official gobernment rally on that day, which is also a big source of yearly leftist and liberal butthurt. They are also our designated nadsis of polish politics.
Third group is basically just a single guy, Grzegorz Braun. I have no idea if his "group" consists of other people, never seen anyone who would declare such thing. He's an independent film producer, he was also a president candidate few years ago. How he gained popularity is a mistery to me. He have stronk pro-catholic views but also share many free-market opinions with Korwin and of course euro-skepticism too.
Despite being branded as right wing party, they're not in good terms with PiS.
Polls give them 7% but tbh there's real danger that they wont actually get into parliament.

Koalicja Obywatelska (KO, Civic Coalition).
As the name suggest it's a coalition consisted of few parties but it's the two biggest that are the most important.
First one is Platforma Obywatelska (PO, Civic platform). Current President of European Council, Donald Tusk (pbuh) comes from this party. However since he left for his EU office the party was basically in decline. This party is our designated pro-european and libtards people but more centre-right kind of closeted faggots as opposed to open faggots from SLD. In the past they had majority in parliament and ruled for 8 years but they also got bad opinon as thiefs, people who care only for moneys that comes from the position, broken promises, corruption in gobernment and sucking eu dick too hard. Apparently more left oriented people also were dissapointed with them at some point.
Second group is Nowoczesna (Modern). Basically same as above but with much much more focus on economy and with different people.
They have also some left-wing parties in this coalition but honestly I know pretty much nothing about them so I cannot comment.
Also I cannot comment much more about the first two groups tbh. I don't think they did much in recent years other then being in opposition and only sharing their butthurt publicly about PiS decisions.
Polls give them around 25% and they will surely be the main opposition force in the new parliament.

There are few other smaller parties but tbh I don't think they are worth mentioning right now, unless they somehow get into parliament (the polls don't really give anyone a chance except for those 5 I mentioned).

eh I'll try to make it quick, they are our designated post-commies, SLD itself isn't too loud about pro-gay or pro-feminist stuff but they candidate together with more radical left-wing parties
also they used to have majority in parliament in early 2000s but in last elections they failed to get a single seat
in polls they get around 13% I think

>460 + 100 seats
Sounds like a lot. But then we had 368 for only 10 mil people (now it's 199).
So PiS will win but probably need one coalition partner which might be the PSL and the Konfederacja has a slim chance for it too. If they really need one that would be unfortunate for the PiS because a much smaller party can blackmail them into adopting policies.

>Janusz Korwin-Mikke

One of the Korwin's idea he has been talking about since forever is to reduce the seats and get rid of Senat as it is a redundant office.
>So PiS will win but probably need one coalition partner
In some other elections Korwin also said this is what he is counting for. He has once said that maybe there would be 10% of population who would be willing to vote for his party and his ideas, but in a proper distribution of seats in parliament he could get some of his reforms in exchange for votes in different matters.

>All in all sounds like Hungarian palette.

There are 4 mandates distributed among some other people who I have no idea who they are and how did they get it while having very small percentages of total votes. I guess they must have very high results in their local district. Anyway we have 48 PiS, and if the other parties gather together against them they get 48 also, so those 4 independent senators will have decisive vote.

Elections happen next week where I live and I've been doing my best to avoid the topic, but I feel like casey may see the content interesting.
In the establishment candidates we got the previous president who has been guilty of corruption, who is mostly remembered as being associated with the peronist movement. This is contradictory to what her political party, "Front for everyone" (Frente para Tod☀️s), previously "Victory Front" (Frente para la Victoria) has been doing for the previous mandate of 12 years. On her and her husbands hand the welfare state merely increased, border regulation was an issue that was never touched, and placed taxes on foreign goods to benefit the local industry, which made exporting quality products hard and capitalist competition non-existent.
On the other hand we have the current president and candidate of the "Pro" party, who is being given as the alternative, despite most of his economic and political manouvers being the same. The welfare state didn't decrease under him, some things got privatized, but the big issue is that the currency under his government has been in constant inflation. This in turn allowed the leftist media to shit talk him 24/7 and create a narrative that the fault of everything is at hands of the president, despite by libertarian logistics, letting the free markets work will mean a short term of struggling economics for a benefitial progress in the long run. His big reason for his hate would be not making all the political actions he had to do upfront, he felt for something called Gradualism, which only changes things at a snail's pace and is the rightful reason as to why people hate him. Oh yeah and promoting to dismantle corruption while also appearing on the Panama Papers.
No election is complete without a leftist candidate, which the Leftist Front (Frente de Izquierda) provides. They are not worth talking about, their ads have non-passing trannies, they're cashing in on the pro-abortion campaign that has been going for the last two years, and most of it's audience are college campus students. Their poster ads are everywhere suspiciously enough, I have the presumption that some jew finances their party.
As an alternative "anti-establishment" political candidate we have Espert (Libertarian Front/Frente Libertario), who is more leaning on the libertarian side of things. His party used to also have celebrity Milei who is known for making loud issues with people and calling them Keynesians, but he left the party some months ago. In the latest elections (we have something called PASO, which was three months ago I think) he polled lower than the Leftist Front, but this is a thing with libertarian logistics, the "my idea is superior to the rest so I don't need to be too upfront about it" thing.
If you wish to be a LARPer and get that elections are just a predictive programming test, there's also the Neighbour's Flag (Bandera Vecinal) party. He's been accused of being a nazi, and there are even photos of him with retarded swastikas behind, which gives me the idea that he's a puppet that has been doing this for many years. You may notice that the V this has is similar to the handsign the "Front for everyone" candidate does, and it's because it's also inspired by Peronism. But instead of being a party of "the workers", which through history has always been a codeword for marxists, it takes the fascists takes of Justicialism, the ideology that Peron made up but never really bothered applying. Meme candidate, a glove that fits democracy.

Small chamber needs a second round of elections in most Cantons, it's expected that it stays in the hands of the traditional middle parties.

The council that is the longest in office can choose first, they do this when a council was replaced. The number of councils in the government is fixed at 7. A council is responsible for several ministries and appoints somebody to run a ministry. So often ministries are run by technocrats that report to the council. The current councils need to be reelected by the new elected parliament. As the left-center parties have their majority back, they will try to get the 4th seat in the government back, to have a majority in the government as well.

Because Europeans are multi-lingual they can't be controlled by a universal corporate narrative, and they end up having conversations in good faith and actually reach the bottom of the disagreement, as opposed to the American rhetorical "divide" that's just about arguing who deserves to oppress the other side more, and to control the corporate power that doesn't make any real compromises.

USA politics are about which position should force itself to be the status quo, while european politics is about what kind of highest power would make the fairest compromises. And really, it's the whole Anglo-centric community rather than USA, because their power to self-impose comes from controlling the rhetoric and erasing clarifying notions from the popular language.

The "absolute" was the keyword. They already have monarchy. I'm pretty sure I had a long discussion about this in another thread. Actually I know I had.
>virtues and values
Sure. For a certain extent. For a ruler it is imperative to know when to apply immoral tools and commit immoral act. Because always following what morality dictates is a sure way to lose his position and probably his life, and then how could he ensure the best for his country and his people?
Anyway Christianity cannot offer that moral support it should for a long time now. And military... they also tend to be a bunch of morons for a while now.
I think what a good ruler should know is spotting talent and managing people. From the top of my head.

It is more like ressentiment that common person get from interacting with modern Russian society, not like popularity of ideology. There also some other reasons, that mostly not related to Stalin or stalinism, but to his critics (from 60s to today).

If Hitler's person wouldn't so tabooed, he would be popular here like Stalin too.

On the other side, the presidential debate that was holded last sunday was quite interesting. I got to know the 6 candidates we have.
>Mauricio Macri
Current president, he's blamed for the crisis but it's never pretty much clarified why it started. Some say it's because the socialist policies of the previous government were too hard, so now we have to go through a shakey time for the economy. Others blame him on not cutting down the welfare. But the press has been shitting on him constantly as a socialist blames capitalism for everything.
On his debate he mostly threw dung that the next candidate was throwing at him
>Alberto Fernandez
Same surname as Anibal Fernandez, lackey of the previous president Christina Fernandez, and also the puppet president from which she plans to govern, since most of the publicity of their party has her face plastered all over but never his. Most of the debate spent throwing dung at Macri, and complained about inequality, a natural aspect of the world. When the next candidate told him about the corruption scandals that were never mentioned under the government before to now, he tried to dismiss the problem by shitting on the current president as if two wrongs make a right.
These are sadly the candidates that are given the spotlight thanks to the MSM and how they like to round up people into binary divisions. The next candidates actually gave proposals as to what to do.
>Jose Luis Espert
Libertarian guy selling himself off as a liberal. Critizises the amount of government spending being done, wants to lift up tariffs, and gives proposals to help working enterprises with the security of holding jobs and paying people when they get fired. Boldly touched the topic of how much people just see living somewhere else as the alternative due to the measures that have been going on.
>Juan Jose Gomez Centurion
Falklands War veteran, the only trump-alike that ended up getting to the debate. There were many like them selling themselves like that, Alberto Olmedo, Santiago Cuneo, and Alejandro Bionding, but most of those could be relegated to lolcows and didn't get to the debate. Proposes bigger frontier security, fight against drug traffic, and more infraestructure for the military, that has been stuck up with tools from the second world war. In his ending seconds established himself as a christian against abortion, so that may give him some recognition. Stuttered all the way through and couldn't manage to end in times the topics he had to talk about (They have a limit of 2 minutes to talk about a topic, then two rounds of 30 seconds to talk about things related to the topic, the order in which who starts was randomized). Also pointed out how during the government of Nestor Kirchner, husband of Fernandez, borders were left open.

Bernd 10/22/2019 (Tue) 20:54:11 [Preview] No.30819 del
>Roberto Lavagna
Was minister of economics during Fernandez government, but ended up leaving somewhere in 2011. Don't know why, I think it was because he didn't want to indulge in corruption. If I can't remember any of what he said is because he's 90 years old, and seemed to be wheezing all the way through his talk. I think he was a liberal as well, can't remember.
>Nicolas Del Caño
Faggot leftist spainbernd would proclaim is a hero of the people. I think I can pinpoint accurately how he did every single talk
>Start with a passive aggresive remark a woman would do (eg: Guys we're grown up, let's be serious)
>Start throwing dung to the president despite the fact this doesn't give him any more spotlight because the press was mostly in bed with the previous government
>Try to guilt trip him reminding him of the dictatorship there was in the 80s
>Always address people in both genders (ie: Pibes y Pibas; Youngsters in both genders/Todos y Todas: Everyone in both genders)
>Mention that there will be work for everyone but doesn't explain how
>Namedrops events in the world only spainbernd would care about (Chile and Spain chimpouts)
>More guilt-tripping about some dead hippie in a river and the IMF. Nobody cares about that, those were just tools to shit on the president and not much else.
At least he and Fernandez made me laugh with their idiocy. Everyone made me laugh in fact. Democracy is shit as government system but it's kinda neat as an entertainment.

We should also take note that if the candidate polling first doesn't have %45+ of votes, and the difference with the second candidate is of %10, there is a second round in november.

>how frontier security is a problem in Argentina? Is smuggling drugs and/or weapons is a thing there?
Yeah, basically drug traffic comes from Bolivia since the state there allows for drug fields to export later to the rest of the world. There was also a case recently where apparently in 2011 that some clay from Salta suddenly became bolivian territory and 17 argie families suddenly started living in Bolivia, something insidious is going on with the province government and them. They're behaving like jews in this sense, in the fact that their religion has a bunch of zigzags to avoid the punishment of god. They're doing a bunch of zigzags to take clay, I don't think they know the times of expansion and claymongering have been long gone.
>Also is military important in South Am in general? Do you guys expect wars or just used as security forces against criminal organizations and as handy tools for a coup d'états?
Well it should be taken into account after all the arsons that Chile has been having lately, plus Brazil takes very into account warfare against criminal organization since they own the favelas over there.

Now they talk about general election again.
Here's a nice little piece:
>EU27 countries don't want to grant an extension of the October 31 deadline without knowing Britain will hold a national election, while opposition parties in Westminster say they will not vote to allow a snap election unless the EU has approved an extension and set a new deadline.
I think they need 2/3 of the votes to hold new elections. And the Queen can dissolve the parliament so then they would have to hold a new one, but the Queen won't where the fuck is she btw?. And would they keep to this royal order anyway?
But nothing will happen, the EU will just give further extensions. I see two ways out of this, both needs a PM who don't give a shit about his own career but maybe this would ensure a long career for him: 1. go against the referendum and pull the plug on Brexit; 2. beat through no-deal. Both would need some tricky maneuvering and not sure if it's doable. The second one however might be easier if the whole thing is steered into such pothole like the one in the quote.

The Supreme Court has just voted to backtrack on a previous understanding that arrests could be made after condemnations on a court of second instance. This allows a few thousand criminals to be set free and strengthens the impunity of those who can hire good lawyers and delay their arrest with a barrage of appeals. Most importantly, this means Lula is now out of jail. His party comrade José Dirceu, key figure in the Mensalão scandal, is also affected. The event has been compared to the Italian Biondi/"save the thieves" decree.
This happens in the context of an anti-anticorruption push by Congress and the Supreme Court to return the law to its previous looseness and curtail Lava Jato, precisely like Mani pulite was tamed in Italy.

That's a big topic. He wrote quite a lot about Brazil, especially politics and related stuff both ITT and in other threads.

You overly dramatize this. Literally noone turning to communism. If there's no world power that backing communist regimes they don't come to power. Even Allende's Chile wasn't communist, today's socialist governments and literally liberals only they tend to distribute more gibsmedats. They ain't even more corrupt than conservative-liberals and liberal-liberals.
>people turn to communism
Ofc people don't like to see the great divide which lays between them and the rich. They also don't like it how the rich got rich. You wanna force them to shut their mouths with weapons and fear? Great idea.
>see if the boomers understand what their decisions made.
Wow, they will see that socialism/communism is evil and they'll regret their decision. Not. Other parts of the world where were actual communism there's a strong nostalgia towards communism. Why because there weren't great divide between... well noone. Even those in very high in the power ladder weren't like the west's wealthy. They had their perks, people mostly suspected them, but everyone could eat well, had a roof above his head, had a secure future, for him and his family, kids. And people don't need much else.
Why they despised the communist/socialist system is the cronyism and nepotism, and the authoritarian nature of the regime. They feared the "black car" which could come for them if they had "bad thoughts". But with time this latter part slowly dissipated and only the corruption remained, with the mild queasy feeling of vulnerability toward the regime. It's bad that no initiative from below, from the people could come to change things that should be changed to better the system, no free acts, only if they told to act from above.
But any other regime, like what we have now has similar characteristics. Corruption, cronyism, susceptibility to behave authoritarian, the suppression of individual initiatives (or stealing the spotlight of such and use it for their political goals).
The problem isn't in the regimes, governmental forms, political ideologies, economic systems, but with the people who operate them and their lack of morality. Their pride, envy, greed, sloth, gluttony, lust and wrath. Their individualism (the individualized, broken society), egoism, lack of empathy, lack of altruism, no communal sense, no communal identity. You can put these people in any system they'll produce the same result. This is why South America (too) is failing.

Which would result in the moral's further spiraling down. Heh, I just realized I spelled moral wrong a couple of times above. Oh well. It would result in further chaos and crime. Moral can only be found in the strengthening of the bonds of community, since moral exists to make it possible for the people to live together, to live beside each other, to make cooperation possible with others.

That is, if there are any next elections at all. Since the elected government has affiliations with Maduro, it has been hinted the idea of summoning a constitutional assembly as the one assigned in Peru to remove term limits.
And that doesn't help that the country falls for demagogues, pushing the idea that more state will fix the issue, when it's the growth of this one that allowed for the proliferation of corruption and money handling, with many politicians placing their family members on jobs in the state, and abusing high prices in public infraestructure to launder money in real estate and properties all around the country.

1. The saying meant Turkish not Turkic which is a different thing. Every Turkish is Turkic but not every Turkic is Turkish.
2. Even "Turk" only goes back to 6th century, everything previously isn't Turkic. Saying - for example - Huns were Turkic is a grave mistake. You could say that Turkic people are Huns tho but if we really want to be nitpicky it's debatable that Huns had anything to do with the oncoming Turkic people, ofc with all the interbreeding going on in Central Asia everyone is related in one way or another, but I'm not talking about genetics, but ethnicity.
3. There's a reason while Hungarian is in the Ural-Altaic language, it's in the Uralic and not in Altaic branch.

> Even "Turk" only goes back to 6th century
nope, it's just Göktürks were the first state with the name Türk. The name goes even more back. We're mentioned as Turcae in Pompeius Mela's map which predates Huns in Europe. That's like saying germans didn't exist because there was no state called germany until 19th century.

I was joking obviously

The word Turkic is a linguistic term. Considering the fact one of reason we're named like that because how foreigners named us, if we had correct name we would named some shit like Oghuzia. Also remember significant portion of central asia was called Turkestan not Turkicstan.

So that little stone for Evo Morales, president of Bolivia, seemed to be shot that killed Goliath.
The military forces joined the protests against the electoral fraud he was complicit, and in order to avoid further escalation, he resigned.
Now the question of a socialist government still continuing to have the steerwheel of the country or turning into more libertarian ideas is the one to be known. He could resign and still govern from a puppet, like Lula intended with Fernando Hadad.

Supposedly Brazil played a role in the regime change, which might be a high point in Bolsonaro's presidency.
Given the opposition's strong showing I believe the new government won't necessarily be right- or left-wing but it won't be Bolivarian.
Although the fall of a Bolivarian regime is always a good thing and there are positive prospects for Bolivia's future I'm slightly saddened by this. Not that I wanted Morales to remain, but he was one of the saner of the Pink Tide regimes (along with Uruguay), he didn't drive his country to societal collapse and had good relations with Bolsonaro.

We gave our full diplomatic support but evidence of closer cooperation is hard to find. Some Protestant churches cooperated with the Bolivians, Camacho met with the Foreign Minister a few months ago and a far left party is accusing the government of having backed the plot and wants it to release the information it has on the topic. I conclude if any aid was given to the opposition it did not play a central role in Evo's downfall.

There will be a large civil war in America, that'll make them withdraw from Europe. In-fact, they're already working on withdrawing from Germany, which thus along with Brexit and further Chinese alliance gives the Germans more political power. In-fact Catalonia even splitting from Spain will give them more political power. Of course something's going to go on with the Antichrist in the Vatican (raid on the Vatican library perhaps). Israelis are going to get wiped out of the map by their neighbours (oy vey).
Then eventually the relations between the EU and eastern bloc without America will start to deteriorate themselves.

A recap of Bolsonaro's first year in power.
He was elected with the promise of doing away with "old politics", the cronyism of coalition presidentialism. As such rather than buying party support with ministerial appointments he slashed the number of ministries and made more technical choices. Once in power his plan was not to keep a base of loyal parties but negotiate on a case by case basis with each caucus. This proved easier said than done and Congress had other ideas.
The threat was not from the Left. It is a cornered beast, losing much of its influence. PT is still egocentric and accepts nothing less than total control of the opposition but the smaller parties are disgruntled and want to distance themselves from it. And they all spent the whole year obsessed with getting Lula out of jail.
It was not from the previous torchbearer of the right, the PSDB. The struggle between its (older) left- and (newer) right-leaning factions continues with the rightists having the upper hand.
It was related, but not from, the Center. Despite the election's polarization and high rate of renewal the bulk of Congress is still occupied by ideologically ambiguous power-seekers. But they rarely seek power on their own, preferring to let someone else take the mantle of power. That someone could have been Bolsonaro, but somehow -the media blames inactivity and lack of negotiation but in truth it was probably lack of bribery- he couldn't win their loyalty.
Bolsonaro's biggest threat was whoever rushed to fill the power vacuum, and it was the most right-wing of the large traditional parties: DEM, which presides over both houses of Congress. Rodrigo Maia, president of the Chamber of Deputies, managed to build his own alliance system. What followed was an offensive by the Legislative over the Executive's power; among other things, the former can now pour funding into its electoral strongholds without less of the latter's oversight. Coalition presidentialism has ceased to exist but in its place "white parliamentarism" has been spoken of as a new paradigm. Power has moved to new axis centered on the Legislative, which may confront Bolsonaro with a center-right candidate in 2022.

Maia agrees with Bolsonaro and his ministers on his economic and administrative reform agenda in a watered-down manner. The largest issue is pension reform, which drags on for years. In May Centrist deputy Paulinho da Força even stated explicitly that Congress wanted a pension reform that would not secure Bolsonaro's reelection. The Left opposed any reform at all and dragged the process as much as it could but was powerless. Bolsonaro's economic team wanted a radical reform with large savings but in the end only a scaled-down reform was implemented.

Simultaneously with reforms and the drive to expand the Legislative's power, Maia's center of power has taken part in a concerted antianticorruption push. In this he is backed by the Left, still butthurt at Lula's arrest, and the "guaranteeist" majority wing of the Supreme Court, which favors laxity in investigations and condemnations in contrast with the "punitivistic" minority wing. The main target of this push is Lava Jato, which like Mani Pulite in Italy faced retaliation after it exposed misdeeds across all parties and offended powerful figures. And as the former star of Lava Jato with a reputation for harshness against politicians and current Justice superminister, Sérgio Moro is their nemesis.

Bernd 01/13/2020 (Mon) 20:12:16 [Preview] No.34029 del
In June Moro's position was shaken by leaked conversations with prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol when he was a judge. They show him taking a more active role than what is typically expected of a judge, which may or may not be grounds for deeming him biased and rolling back Lula's condemnation. Only a proper trial could assess this, but there likely won't be one as his opponents immediately used it to attack Lava Jato and justify their push. Nonetheless he still has strong popular support and the backing of a handful of center-right parties. The only practical effect is that he will no longer be nominated to the Supreme Court and nor Dallagnol to Prosecutor General.
Congress and the Supreme Court have transferred the Financial Activities Control Council (Coaf) from the Justice Ministry to the Central Bank, passed the "Authority abuse law" which can be used to target judges and prosecutors if they're deemed too harsh, seriously watered down the "anti-crime packaged" Moro had forwarded to Congress and set Lula free as part of a wider relaxation of arrest conditions.

The Supreme Court, on its part, is drunk with power. They issued a gag order to some journalists and decided criminalized homophobia by defining it as part of the Constitution's ban on racism. The major criticism on legal grounds is that in doing so it was effectively creating legislation and thus invading an exclusive prerogative of Congress. The counterargument was that it was a creation of legislation but the Supreme Court is allowed to do it for laws that are already meant to exist anyways.

Bolsonaro is weakened and has to deal with corruption scandals among his sons and bitter infighting in his party, which he intends to leave and form a new one. His foreign policy has brought little fruit and Trump hasn't done much in his favor. Anyone who speaks of the "threat of authoritarianism" in Brazil is clueless.
He does, however, still have a dedicated and zealous core of followers who defend him no matter what he does. This was also the backbone of PT rule for years and he managed to replicate it.
The economy was stagnant but doing fairly well with low inflation and interest rates and positive prospects for this year. The BRL is dropping but that is good for exports.

Why is this unemployment rate on a downward trend even though the second half of the last decade hasn't been that great for Russia? Statistical manipulation? Managing better?

Bernd 03/19/2020 (Thu) 18:16:37 [Preview] No.35296 del
Our trick is to make public jobs which can suck up large masses of unemployed and pay them below minimum wage. We have two categories, one for those who have higher education (which pays still less than min wage, but higher then the next group) and another for absolutely uneducated people (=gypsies) or old with low educational background. We have not anymore very low unemployment rate. Maybe Russia does the same.
Additional information: the gypsy public workers do barely anything. They are tasked to clean the streets, cut grass, collect fallen leaves, salting sidewalks in winter, etc. they are numerous so they are doing these very leisurely. On certain settlements many of them don't even go to work, they still get they paychecks, in return they better the statistics.

Bernd 03/19/2020 (Thu) 23:19:02 [Preview] No.35308 del

Russian employment situation is pretty interesting and complex, and influenced by multiple factors.

First - actual demographics is in serious decline for 20+ years. There were some small positive peak some time ago, but it is related to large cycle that going from WW2 and still has effect (but it is a different story). So, workforce shrinking faster than economic go into decline. Technology level overall is still low, so plenty of work positions are opened because there is no optimization. For example, accounting is very complex and requires full departments even in small business.

Second - Russia has interesting situation when it is overly socialistic state on paper but very unsocialistic in reality. That results in complete inability to live without work. Only pension can somewhat sustain living conditions (but pretty poor). Other things, like unemployment benefits, are too small to even buy any food for month. So, people literally can't survive without work. When in many other countries person may wait some time to find specific vacancy, here it is all about any vacancy that is available.

Third - yes, this >>35296
State is very big, especially if you count half-state companies like Gazprom, Russian Railways or Russian Post. They also large in bureaucratic sense, and employ large array of people who something stupid and receive small wages. Some calculations say less than half of workforce actually do non-state related work. Local police has more than million employees, and this number doesn't even include militarized police. Railways have 700+ thousands of people. Post has 400k. Gazprom group has almost 500k.

Fourth - structure of Russian economy is also specific, large share of income goes from external sources (exports of raw materials) and from state companies. Then these money go into chain of intermediates, so in the end it is just large amount of resellers that resell something to other resellers, then again. And every part of chain requires own managers, accounting, secretaries etc. In more classic open market they would be removed by competition and money spending optimizations, but here they are still live because they just sit on constant flow of something they don't made.
