  1. Time to bring this Mark Blyth interview back to the surface:
  2. More in the sense that most papers tend to be leaning to the left of the political spectrum, thus being more open to the idea of a European Union. That's just my assumption.
  3. Leaving a construct such as the EU is a big issue with far-reaching consequences that go beyond this current generation and it's an issue that needs some serious in-depth knowledge, and what possibly should be done better or should've done better is/was to educate the people about the possible pros and cons on an objective basis - by the BBC most of all. I can't look back and encompass what did happen in the UK back in the summer of 2016 and how much of that theoretical promise was fulfilled, that's just my wishful thinking. Then again, you're looking at a certain media bias towards the EU and I doubt many UK papers or TV stations see the EU from a more critical point of view, so the public tends to be at a disadvantage from the get-go.
  4. Well, looking from the outside in, it seems both strange and frightening that any country that fulfills a certain amount of (economic) criteria can get in, but there's never been a discussion or grounds for countries leaving the EU? Reeks of elitism and what about respecting individual countries' tendencies? And why shouldn't countries decide for themselves what's good for them? Are they all too incompetent from the EU's point of view? I'm all for a European Union, but one that is solely based on a political idea, based on the foundation of the original union, one that brought Germany and France back together after WWII. The moment the Euro was conceived, it all went downhill. When you look at the apparatus built in Brussels, it's a molokh that devours anything it touches, it's like a modern-day usurpator. I also find it odd that people can't stand how direct democracy works - not wanting to accept the result of the first vote, then claiming the people were misled. Well, hello - there surely was no time and no possibility to inform oneself in detail beforehand about the possible ramifications of a Brexit? How often do the "losers" now want to repeat a vote until the result favours them instead? I can vote on many issues here in my country - sometimes, I "win", sometimes I "lose". But I'm surely not going to get all wound up about it. The majority has spoken and this is how it'll go from hereon.
  5. Zahavi's goal to make it 3-1 for Israel against Austria was an unreal strike. Beautiful.
  6. ISIS in Syria defeated. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/03/isil-defeated-syria-sdf-announces-final-victory-190323061233685.html Hopefully, this will be the last we've seen from them.
  7. I feel for you, but the game is modeled in a way that you stand little to no chance if you join in this late into its yearly cycle. You need to seriously invest both money and time to master what is a flawed game. I've been online since the pre-release in September, and you need to stay active and build your team so you can compete with 87 or 88 OVR squads, either filled with special cards or Icons. But there's things you can do. What you have to do first and foremost is tamper with your tactics (press Y (XBOX) in the squad screen), alter players' instructions, change your general strategy for games. It'll make a massive difference compared to how you're set up right now. You can take it further by playing with custom tactics during matches. But that's optional, I've done fairly well so far without it.
  8. Well, thanks to the better gamers and YouTubers, once it was exposed how lame the rewards are higher up, more and more people have stopped bothering pushing for anything more than 14 or 17 wins. It's simply not worth it. If EA would reform that system and offer better or more personalized rewards, there'd be a bigger incentive to win more games. People have realized how much they have been conned and they're fed up. Understandably so.
  9. With regards to Trump, it's easy and convenient to build up this picture of an enemy of the people. But where's the media's criticism and debate on the Democrats' own failings? Why no word on the sheer lack of personality and character among the candidates for the 2020 presidency? The extreme amount of bland candidates? I like Bernie Sanders and he's probably the most popular among all Trump opponents, but he will fail again because the Democrats will axe him once more, just like they did in 2016, when Hillary was made the crown favourite. Also hardly any mention of Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Yang, who in my eyes deserve to be pushed. The main reason I predict a 2020 win for Trump isn't based on Trump's ability, it's down to the Democrats' own infighting and internal disagreements, plus the hints of anti-semitism. That party currently is a shadow of its former self and needs some serious clear out.
  10. It is equally telling that some people fail to answer the most pressing of questions with regards to this particular subject. Where's the debate? One-liners like yours don't solve anything, only add fuel to the fire of a more and more polarizing handling of news and political discourse.
  11. Again, you make it out as if it was widespread and - to a certain extent - endemic. At some stage, the press would've gotten a hold of facts and proof, right? Highlighting single incidents - just like the media do - proof nothing but that there are some incidents in which people are shot, people with all sorts of ethnic backgrounds. When you look at the controversial cases and weigh them up against arrests in general, the percentage is very low. As in very, very low. These cases (Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray among others) are and remain rare. To me, it reeks of a narrative that wants to paint an entire group of people as racist. If indeed certain individuals are found to be racist, they should be expelled from their job and sued. Your claim that correlation here is "extremely likely" is nothing but your claim. Stats tell otherwise. The amount of fatal shootings in the US is on the decline: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/national/police-shootings-2019/?utm_term=.2147d73cc31c Also, for such a conspiracy to be active, you'd need such a mass amount of people involved over such a prolonged period of time, keeping quiet, all accepting and submitting to a certain system and ideology that it is far from being realistic. Or, to counter your point, it would be extremely unlikely.
  12. Like I said before, based on the article and the video, there's little to know what happened before the shots were fired. Given the situation, if it was indeed a regular inspection, then there's no need to run away. They could've easily handed themselves in - after all, they had nothing to do with the criminals the police were after. It was a stupid and ultimately deadly and tragic move. We will never know what really happened that close up, the police officer claimed he saw the victim carrying something that resembles a gun, witnesses claim the victim was unarmed (When and where did they arrive at the scene? How could they make out that detail from afar?). It's one word against another. Any loss of life at that age is to be mourned, but let's not deny that people controlled by the police are bringing it on themselves if they decide to obstruct the law and that the police in the US on the whole are doing a pretty darn good job. I'd also like to highlight what a high-pressure job it is to impose the law; depending on the area you're working in, it's tense, really tense.
  13. Yep, the police are to blame for when citizens resist regular inspection and/or arrest. *Irony off The video the article is based upon doesn't go into detail what happened before the shots were fired - were the kids asked to cooperate, were they warned? It's easy to side with the supposed "victims" when you're spoonfed certain edited information that feed your own bias. I oppose racism, I believe in equality, but in the end it boils down to you as a human and the choices you make. So, I wonder what decision the kids the cops shot at made before they ran away, which in itself is pretty stupid given the circumstances. They were surrounded by two police cars, outnumbered and they decided to run away? You do realize how guilty that makes them look like?
  14. Well done. Still, what do you gain extra? 15'000 more coins and a different set of packs as opposed to Gold 3, plus maybe a better chance of packing a better untradeable TOTW player as part of your rewards? It's just not that enticing to me.
  15. Happy for Trump. Not because I like the guy, but because what a waste of time and money the whole investigation was and how low the Dems have sunk. This was unworthy. Now, how about spending two and a half years on another investigation, browsing through Hillary's lost E-Mails and her ties to Russia via the Clinton Foundation?
