    We "can" but we can't. But we "can" maybe.

    M.A.D. becomes useless if annihilation is not mutual.

    So don't say you can shoot down nukes.

    Nuclear tactics were in thier infancy when we nuked Japan. You don't target Civilian centers because Civilian centers aren't the ones shooting back. That in and of itself is a deterrent from doing so and a method of keeping civilian centers as least likely to be hit. There are a few exceptions to this, the white house, for example.

    It's pretty widely disputed. Some say we all just die immediately, other say within a few decades some say we'll be fine because bombs aren't as radioactive as they used to be.

    Either way, probably not a good idea.

    The point of nuclear war generally isn't to kill millions of civilians and end the human race. Even if it could, what's the point of anything?

    Millions dying is more of a side effect. I personally think learning of an upcoming ICBM defense would be what sets off any sort of nuclear aggression.

    Right. Aside from the one-off nuke that malfunctioned and lost it's trajectory mid-flight, bunkers aren't a priority for anyone.

    But to the main topic, the problem seems to be the logistics. Loading hundreds of people into a submarine sounds difficult.

    Besides that, let's talk about why we even use bunkers:

    In this Doomsday scenario one nation has launched a nuclear salvo against you. Your nation has systems in place to recognize a first-strike and redundancies to confirm it. After ensuring the thread, 5 minutes after launch, they fire their missiles back. You now have 30 minutes left after the emergency is send out across all publicly available channels to find shelter. Personally, it's unlikely that even if I knew where a bunker was, I'd make it there in the chaos.

    Bunkers are usually not designed for the blast anyway. They're refuge for the immense amount of fallout afterwards.

    Yes. Plenty of people can be re-introduced into society, as if it hasn't been the plot-line of hundreds of documentary films. The prison system has evolved substantially to offer benefits that never existed in the past few decades. Workshop, conjugal visits, shows from famous celebrities and even lethal-injection (see 'Old Sparky.')

    besides that, if you want to actually talk about the American judicial system and not just call them shams, give me your arguments and what the correspondence is. Is it prison culture? Is it the prison layout? Is it atopical from your title? Or is this a moral discussion?

    In my eyes
    Indisposed
    In disguises no one knows
    Hides the face
    Lies the snake
    And the sun in my disgrace
    Boiling heat
    Summer stench
    Neath the black, the sky looks dead
    Call my name
    Through the cream
    And I'll hear you scream again
    Black hole sun
    Won't you come
    And wash away the rain?
    Black hole sun

    Times are gone
    For honest men
    Sometimes, far too long for snakes
    In my shoes
    Walking sleep
    In my youth, I pray to keep
    Heaven send
    Hell away
    No one sings like you anymore
    Black hole sun

    For example I am definitely pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage, and pro-guns (my position on social issues is, if doesnt constitute a security risk or an infringement upon someone elses freedom, why not?), but I also believe that religion and culture are nice and important. I believe American laws are, at least in part, based on fundamental religious values. I also think the ideas that are at the core of our society (individualism foremost among them) are extremely important, and that we shouldnt abandon them. Does that make me a conservative?
    Sounds libertarian.

    Also I think pro-choice is a bit better sounding than pro-abortion.

    Well yeah. And even those foundations are used to polarize political positions more, especially by the media. For example, does having more empathy make you a better person? Does wanting to protect your country's interests first make you a bad person?

    As far as two types of conservative, I'm sure there are a lot more.

    Its a bit bizarre youd mention the title of the thread because I actually meant to contrast them to show that they werent the same thing, and didnt say one was better than the other. I feel they shouldnt be lumped together because theyre different.

    Bizarrely enough not all studies Ive read make this distinction. So maybe its a contentious issue.
    Still its interesting to think that political leanings can be predicted on the basis of temperament.
    There are plenty of types of political views in general; It doesn't matter what side of the spectrum you're on. I'm progressive on some issues and conservative on others. A few of us just showed our results from a political survey that shows this.

    Not sure what you mean by temperament.

Debatable. There is definitely other factors to consider but I think this angle is important simply because you can look at single parent households across all races and see the trend of low socioeconomic standing.

    so many times.

    Brown vs. Board of education was only in 1954. Even if you were to believe the system was 100% equal for everyone from that point onwards, you can't really argue that blacks should have regressed to the mean by now. It's been only a few generations...

    I agree with your conclusions for the most part, but the way you've reached it is backwards. Fatherhood is simply a void in many black communities around the country and as Banana pointed out, a large number of black couples are not getting married at all. To the point where I would argue whether or not divorce is even as large a factor as your attributing.

    America, including black people, are left with a moral gap after the rejection of organized religion. I'm not saying those religions were "good", but they did have a societal function. Those regions (mainly Christianity) kept families together, got fathers to work for the welfare of the family, assigned roles to each member, and promoted the educating of the children by parents.

    People are free to reject religion, it's their choice, but people still need families, communities, and a sense of belonging.
    I'm not going to re-argue my point on why the legitimacy of Systemic Racism is questionable at best. Besides, you seemed to have gotten some of the point by actually posting problems and even offering a solution.

    Oh I understand what you mean now. Lol

    Yeah well the last two political threads felt like circlejerks as opposed to discussion/debate. Plus as we learned last time I'm pretty politically neutral.

    This is exactly why he got a tasty confidential settlement. Similar things have happened in the NBA.

    So you don't think the response from the NFL would be the same? I just dont see the point in comparing apples to oranges that don't exist in your question.

    Protesting police brutality is fine. That is the name of the issue.

    Your second example does not make sense, by the way. Perhaps you could phrase it, "would this happen to a talented white player protesting police brutality?"

    I'm simply asking how you're tying the two together. Systemic Racism broadly explains away the shortcomings of communities of color and frames the world as against you at every level. It pushes you down. Systemic Racism is a boogie-man with no face because it is not tangible. Police brutality is tangible. Police brutality has a face. Thats my point.

    Also he totally got a confidential settlement and is fine with it.
    And in the same vein, what else is tangible? Black communities living impoverished paying taxes to public schools who get less than white schools is not an issue of white privilege or Systemic Racism. It is an issue of economics. It is an issue of black children growing up without a father. Hell, one of the best platforms that the BLM movement has is the desire to help children in these situations grow up with communal guidance. To find an alternative to the nuclear family because it has become more and more uncommon. This is another complicated issue, but people do not talk about it. People don't feel warrant or authority to talk about it. A child's failures are left up to this wistless idea that they were destined to fail. That is wrong, and its what we're teaching them.
