    Catalan Independence

    Might as well secede, who cares we'll all be part of the European Federation of Nations in the future anyway :P

    Paris Attacks, Terrorism in France

    Nobody wants to risk boots on the ground. It's a shame because sometimes the sword is mightier than the pen.

    Paris Attacks, Terrorism in France

    As soon as these attacks happened, the first thing everyone thought was "ISIS". That's exactly what they want. Consider them like internet trolls. they just want negative attention because they thrive on it. They want to see you be afraid and they want you to be paranoid. What people need to be...

    Paris Attacks, Terrorism in France

    Being afraid is exactly what the terrorists want of you. What happened in Paris is but a taste of what happens in the Middle East every day. This seems bad now, but we will soon move on and forget it as we do everything else.

    2016 U.S. Presidential Elections: The Circus Is In Full Swing

    I'm bored and it's 1am, if ever there were a time for me to be posting things which have no bearing on anything ever, this is it.

    2016 U.S. Presidential Elections: The Circus Is In Full Swing

    I don't really care for any of the candidates. But then again, I never care for any candidate. The only person I can trust to act in my interests is myself, and even then I'm not entirely reliable in doing that.

    Turkey Right Now

    There are a lot of things I disagree with that go on in Turkey, I'm just hesitant to assume anything and act like an expert about a nation that I only know about from local news, wikipedia and games haha. Out of curiosity, are there many/any Turks who have criticised their government and such...

    The Syrian Civil War. Do you support a side?

    Taking no sides, I do not see how there can be any justification for keeping Bashar al-Assad on as President (or having any part in government). He has presided over a crippling civil war, he will always be synonymous with some of the worst of Syria's history. For the nation to progress, he...

    Turkey Right Now

    Leave Turkey to the Turks really, what happens there and what they believe doesn't really affect me so I don't care much. Turkey, as all places, will slowly become more westernised as time goes by. What suits the Turks does not suit us in Europe, but what suits us may not suit them either...

    Should Earth be united?

    To have a united earth like you'd see in Star Trek or whatever, it'd take a hell of a lot of work. Modelling it after the political system of the USA, there'd still be vast differences between regions. Imagine if any state, take Texas for example, was full of muslims and the state government...

    Religion Thread

    I have never felt hatred, so that's why I personally believe it's not natural. That's my belief, which some people might share and some may not, but i'm not going to debate it because I don't need to convince anybody to agree with me. I feel that relates to religion being personal, since we all...

    The Royal Family are a great distraction. I'd rather have our lovely money making tourist trap monarchy over some dull President.

    Religion Thread

    I had just written an essay on the topic but my browser screwed me over. Cheers, Firefox. :P You see, quite frankly, hatred is not natural to man. I believe it is bred. I think it's an idea rather than an emotion. It's a combination of emotions, but not one in itself. At least, in my opinion...

    Mount&Blade II: Bannerlord Developer Blog 8 - Engine Power [VIDEO]

    Exciting, I just hope it isn't too taxing. I only have a laptop because like 99% of people in the world I can't really afford a dedicated gaming computer. I just hope I can enjoy Bannerlord in all it's glory without having to go for the low settings :P You guys seem a lot better than most...

    Religion Thread

    I don't like how people are so willing to throw out terms like "idiot" and "brainwashed" when talking about religious people. Religion is a very clever thing really, be it a pleasant distraction or just something to believe in to get you through the day. I think religion is personal and it...

    UK Election 2015 Poll, Vote Here!

    I'm from Northern Ireland, and I believe that we are stronger as part of the United Kingdom and as part of the European Union. All these tiny countries mean nothing. There is no strength in isolation. We are part of a divided world. Europe must be able to contend with the USA and the BRICS...
