1) reduce environmental regulations which is obviously a no no
2) impose tarrifs that make earth raping Chinese plastic more expensive than relatively clean US made plastic
option one ensures we are all choking on acidic Chinese coal ash in a century and option two actually creates high paying clean US manufacturing jobs so that workers can actually afford more expensive domestically manufactured goods.
Yes US manufacturing will have pollution no matter what, but the goods are going to be manufactured no matter what. So would you rather buy Earth raping Chinese goods or American goods that only grope Earths butt and call her sugar tits?”

KanColle took the “historical warships turned into girls” thing and completely hid the historical warships under the rug, reducing each character to a stereotype based in nothing.
Also, whereas the KF anime was thematically consistent and carefully planned out with a singular vision, the KanColle anime was thematically incoherent garbage, a grab bag of ideas that didn’t mesh nicely, with all the ideas executed terribly except for the comedy.”

“People often ask me how I can be so tolerant of people who have some pretty incorrect political beliefs.
The answer is that once I realized that the average American supported the nuclear bombings of Japan, I was outrageously disgusted. I considered just never interacting with the average person again and living as a hermit somewhere to escape the pollution.
It was clear that the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of civilians through nuclear annihilation could not be justified. And yet I interacted with people who wholeheartedly defended it every day of my life. In comparison, almost all other incorrect political opinions pale in evilness. It would simply be hypocritical to be willing to interact with people who defend the mass murder of Japanese civilians but not those who support much more minor crimes.
What’s worse, not letting a Japanese immigrate to your country or killing him? To anyone with a clear mind it’s the latter. Yet there are many people who are aghast at the former and will refuse to associate with him but while possibly disagreeing with the latter do not consider it friendship-breaking.
I will never be one of those people. The average American is a morally contemptible human being and far worse than most of those he arrogantly considers his social and moral inferiors.”

Hilariously, the fucking copyright holders would send their attack-dog hackers to simply “snip” your powerlines and utterly shutdown your infrastructure. The “country” would do nothing but cost you money when you make absolutely nothing to maintain it and any outside contractors you bring in to do maintenance will charge you an arm and leg.
And that’s assuming you’ll find a country that will sell you the land, which you won’t – they won’t even sell you a fucking frozen island that nobody lives on or knows the name of.

“”Piracy” is what boomed the industry on this side of the globe”
bluray sales and stuff like crunchyroll make up for only 10-20% of revenue in anime series. The exception is when Netflix or Amazon buy exclusive rights to a show, that bumps it up a bit but still not to the majority of revenue (Hulu and Crunchyroll pay much less for rights because they rarely pay for exclusive rights, and usually let other streaming services also have viewing rights. They do this because of the sheer amount of stuff they have, they feel like they don’t need exclusive shows to sell their service).
The vast majority of revenue comes from buyfags buying merchandise unrelated to the actual blu-ray / dvd sales, or in the case of manga series, people buying the manga volumes.
The end of piracy for anime would be a massive hit to the entire industry, since so much of it is “try before you buy”. Japan included, but they can watch anime on TV obviously.”

“Third, I believe Green’s plan will fail. Eventually, someone outside of the Green family will come onto the board of the trust, and through political influence will dilute the mission of the organization. This has happened numerous times – see the Ford Foundation, etc. Whenever there is a huge pile of money controlled by a board of people with no skin in the game, political players emerge to seek control for other ends. Liberals in particular are very skilled in using deception to worm their way into positions of influence. Green’s trust, by being explicitly Christian, is particularly vulnerable to judicial interference. If and when, for example, opposition to the homosexual agenda becomes “against public policy,” federal judges can and will dissolve the Green family trust or appoint alternative trustees to subvert the mission of the organization. Green’s trust documents are arguably already in violation of official public policy since he requires all trustees to have a “credible written testimony” of faith in Christ. By giving up possession of the Hobby Lobby fortune to an entity that is not the Green family, eventually it will be captured by the political process.”

“Medial care beyond herbs, fluids, bedrest and primitive surgery did not exist until the early twentieth century. When I tune into the debate about a right to health care, what I often hear is a discomfort that has to do with absolute, as opposed to relative, inequality.
Nobody cares about equality when construction workers have homes with pools. If the rich have yachts, what is that to them?
Since around the New Deal, advances in administration and agriculture have made it a point of pride as well as morality that no one should starve on American streets. Is that a ‘right’? It’s not in the Constitution.
It’s also the case that drug prices in America are grossly inflated to a degree that is mind-boggling. That drug companies are constantly using research from or funded by the government makes it even more obscene. Until the FDA and AMA are sorted out, until the supply of doctors is not made artificially scarce, until the use of expert systems is allowed in diagnosis and prescription, I say make doctors and Big Pharma and the FDA suffer. They have all practiced cartel-ism to preserve income and status, and they should all be punished. People at the FDA should be shot.
Until all of that stuff is sorted out, it’s pointless to talk about what is a right and what isn’t. People historically put aside rights-talk during situations of life-and-death. The fact is that nobody outside of the 2% could afford health care. Anybody might develop a rare condition, have an accident, experience a catastrophic health event, etc. Even going bankrupt wouldn’t suffice to pay for it with the current system.
It’s similar to colleges. Before 1965 or so, there was no college so pricey that you couldn’t put yourself through with a part time job. Now nobody can do it without incurring lifetime debt.”

“Wait, you support absolute monarchy and an armed citizenry? Guns in the hands of the common folk are antithetical to monarchy.”

“Just look up the English nobility’s stance on the peasantry and the long bow. They expected the peasantry to have long bows and be well versed in using them for defense of the kingdom. The citizenry owning weapons is not antithetical to monarchism.”
“No in fact most, maybe all stable governments have a free armed citizenry. It is paid mercenary soldiers and police which are antithetical to liberty not Kings, nobles or even social inequality. Fact. In a proper system each has a place — high middle or low if you will — and is granted the proper rights of that station. The right to defend your life from violent harm is assumed at law as predating the state or any other human action, until very very recently, and since life necessitates SOME property that too was defensible until AFTER the Stuarts fell and Parliament started its rape of the commons in earnest. Your suppositions only apply to the particular development of Great Britain after the fall of the Monarchy and the rise of the Merchants Oligarchy called parliamentary democracy. And again it is a proven FACT that police and standing armies NOT armed citizens are a threat to the liberties of BOTH Kings and Commons. That is the historical record.”

“[W]hat we call “health insurance” is not truly insurance at all, nor is producing more of it going to lead to better care. We need less health insurance, not more.

>In 2013 we made a conscious effort to shift away from the “hourglass girls” we had been making for years. We just had so many women in our game that could easily be described by, “Syndra, but in a different c******.” We needed more variety. There are a lot of different ways to make compelling female characters that don’t revolve around raw sex appeal. IMO having a large variety of female and male characters is really good for us. Lets us hit a ton of different niches which is important with a roster as big as ours.
>That said, it’s been a loooooong time (over 3 years) since we’ve made a new first order appealing female character (like of Lux, Ahri, or Jinx). I think it’s important we make another, not because “OMG SEX APPEAL,” but because “I feel attractive” is a compelling character fantasy that a lot of players (men and women) really attach to. The key is the character’s looks HAVE TO MAKE SENSE. Visuals should support the overall theme of a character, not be there in spite of it. The way Caitlyn looks makes no sense for a prim and proper sheriff. The way Ahri looks makes a ton of sense for a succubus.
>It is also crucial to recognize that even within the “attractive character” space, there is huge potential variety in the ways that attractiveness can express itself (there’s a reason I used Lux, Ahri, and Jinx in the above example). As long as the character’s visuals serve and resonate with the its thematic we shouldn’t be afraid of going the “sexy” route. League’s got room for all kinds.

“>You can always do what ShindoL did.
He is actually the reason I feel so fucking bad because this whole “american drawing porn in japan” thing was very inspirational until I’ve actually learned about him from people who know him personally.
He WAS born in USA but his parents are Japanese. He is 100% asian. He spoke perfect japanese ever since he was a kid. He had no problem moving to Tokyo since he always had a citizenship available to him. He’s also got a proper art education and his family was pretty loaded which allowed hem to raise himself into prominence by hiring all the big dick artist back in late 00s to work on the Bestiaries and whatnot.
AND he is legitimately talented and works his ass off on top of all that.
Basically: no, you can’t actually do what ShindoL did. It’s a fucking meme he uses to promote himself among westerners.”
“That’s how they all are, almost every successful artist in japan has loaded parents, Mashima is a big example of this.”
“Well, it is pretty uncommon for working class parents to send their kids into art schools regardless of where you are. And I would by no means imply that these people “are only popular because of their rich daddies” or anything like that.
Shindol has dozens of finished pieces behind his back and, as an artist, you can clearly see that he has been putting a LOT of care into them ever since he started. There are lots of artists who are as popular or even more popular who don’t bother with stuff like proper backgrounds, extreme angles, advanced composition, detailed anatomy etc. You may not even notice all that stuff as a consumer but he really does all that shit.
But alas, the “New-York dude drawing rape n’shit in Japan” is still a complete bullshit.”
“All minority groups believe in free speech when they’re fighting to be heard and gain sympathy. But it’s what those groups do when they get in power that matters. It’s both obvious that the left would round up and murder millions of people if they gained full power, and that the “pro-freedom/classical liberal” (implicit, but cucked) people wanting to stop the left from doing this would do nothing because they don’t believe in outlawing the ideologies and tools of their enemies. They believe in private entities banning their existence, and the rights of the enemy.”
“i may not agree with him, but i will fight to the death for my enemy’s right to destroy everyones’ future!”
“The English press is the most insufferably arrogant, generally ignorant, the most passionately one-sided and narrow-minded in its judgments that I know; it is the universal bully, always laying down the law for everybody, always speaking as if it were umpire of the universe, always abusing everybody all round and putting party spirit in all its judgments, envenoming thus the most peaceful discussions. It is this and this only which has made England hated all the world over. During the whole year 1895, I never opened an English newspaper without finding War predicated or threatened…No other nation in the world has wanted war or done anything but pray for peace-England alone, the world’s bully, has been stirring it up on all sides.”
“Venezuela has the richest oil reserves in the world and one of the best educated populations in Latin America.”
“lol, this thread pretty much exemplifies why the vast majority of IC never has or will make it. Anons spend more time looking at someone else’s work trying to find “tricks” or answers rather than just painting to figure them out yourself.
You don’t need to see the guys steps, it’s not going to help you. His paintings look impressive because he can draw really well, understand 3d forms and how to light/render them. No tutorial or process shot is going to teach you that, only drawing and painting a fuck ton will. Even if you had a magic tool that gave you his color pallet and told you where to put the colors your work would be shit because up can’t draw.
People need to just go fucken draw instead of endlessly swooning, analyzing and wasting time on here picking apart someone else’s work. If you want to become generic asian artists #23757 you need to be spending your days studying from life and painting personal work, then continue that for 5+ years.
It’s seriously not brain surgery.”
“You are a massive faggot. Any good artist has studied the work of other artists he admires and tried to figure out the techniques being used. You also assume we don’t do any actual practice but like, fuck you man.”
“Why aren’t people allowed to analyze and learn something new to start trying out consciously in their practice, instead of having to hash out everything on their own when there are resources and learning opportunities in other artists’ work? Looking at an artist’s work like this takes only a little time. Seems like you’re projecting unnecessarily.”
“this thread is actually one of the better ones /ic/ has from time to time because it is a god damn discussion and study. Threads of “get gud” “more loomis” don’t mean shit and help no one, /ic/ is at its best when it is breaking down specifics and figuring out things. Not when its just bitching.”
Not gonna make it famalam”

“Wow. He won every area of the country except the northern half which “coincidentally” is the most Islamized and suffered the largest scale attacks. Just shows how much French people even care about other French people living in other regions of the country.
He lost Nice too. Another sight of a large scale attack lol. These people literally need their families killed to understand.”
“Napoleon was best French ruler. Of course, he was also not French.”
“The US is one of a very short list of nations (I believe DPRK may be the other) that actually tries to collect taxes on residents no longer within their borders. You can’t leave the farm (legally). Though they probably try harder against the low hanging fruit, poor people in the US.”

“Faggots tend to have higher IQs, which is why they make up a disproportionate amount of both geniuses and mentally ill psychopaths. I can’t back this up with any sort of quantitative evidence, but I assume that the normalization of faggotry has increased the hedonistic and self-destructive nihilist tendencies of the average homo compared to times past when high IQ homos were naturally channeled into a more productive application of their abilities by social incentives”

Why are Atlus such liars?”
“they’re saying if you’re going to be successful outcasts then you better have guts, charm, knowledge, kindness, skilled, be extremely lucky, have a lot of useful connections, and control magical powers.
which is all true of the real world.”
“This is a degradation of any honest work, for every honestly working man must ask today: Does it have a purpose at all that I work? I will really never accomplish anything, and there are people who, practically without work, can not only live, but in practice even dominate us, and that’s their goal.”
“This is a reminder that the average American has no idea that the Interregnum happened. At best he might recognize the name Oliver Cromwell and that he had something to do with England. But that the English ever killed their king, he has no idea.
His understanding of history is that after the fall of Rome, there was the Dark Ages, about which the only thing you need to know is that there were crusades, details not important, and then there was the Reformation, and Henry VIII in England killed his wives, and then nothing important happened until the Americans revolted against King George.”
“I read about that case. They railroaded him. They dug all through his life to find something to nail him on because he was going against the narrative.
It was literally nothing. I think he forgot to disclose a small loan from a family member when he bought a house. The loan had long since been repaid but because he didn’t disclose it at the time they went after him.
Another time that they arrested him (his been arrested tons of times) and the cops threw him in a holding cell with a bunch dirty Muslims that knew who he was.
They left him to be beaten and most likely killed. They beat the shit out him, stomped on his head and kicked his face in. They knocked out all the teeth in the front of his mouth, top and bottom.”
“Did not know the guy but watched the clip where he was at a restaurant with his family and the police just came out of nowhere to trow him and his family out for “disturbing the peace”. Even after seing they where just peacefully trying to eat and afteer the owner/staff told the police they where welcomed customers.”
“He’s getting an extraordinary amount of flak for filming these Pakis. They say the flak’s the worst when you’re above the target.

“Southeast KY is 99.5% white, but poor with a drug issue and terrible infrastructure. The area is rich in natural resources, namely coal. Yet the counties are broke, the internet is early 2000s-tier, cell phone coverage is horrible, & some people don’t have running water. The region has produced trillions of dollars worth of coal, but you know who got that money? Capitalists who paid the locals $10/hour to mine the coal. The locals are poor, the coal workers are dying of cancer they got from the coal, and the companies won’t pay the medial bills. This is why a strong nationalist government is needed, to implement some socialist measures into the economy. Natural resources like oil, coal, and others should be nationalized, the money comes from the land, and the people own the land and thus should benefit from the profits, not a few capitalists who take 95% of the money, and then shut down and leave the area poor with no jobs. The people in southeast KY should be RICH, they’re sitting on trillions of dollars of black gold, yet live almost 2nd world. The people who talk 99% of the time about race need to get with the program, even if it’s 100% white, you have to have an economic plan, too. What’s being done to white kentuckians is disgusting. Capitalism is just as bad as what you say communism is, and makes everybody poor and into a defacto slave. The difference is communism is dead and capitalism is raping us currently.”

“I guess they shouldn’t have sold their land off for pennies then.”
“They didn’t, a lot of it was nationalized and then sold off again in federal auctions. They rest were by and large extorted off the land because of really esoteric clauses in land titles over mineral rights.”

“Because that’s the most accurate and faithful translation, and all other versions have a “flavor” with them which would change the outlook of a character.(Like someone who’s supposed to be a dumbass saying french jargon)
I don’t see what’s people’s problem with it being translated as only that. If the original writer put “shikata ga nai” 100 times, then there’s absolutely no problem with “it can’t be helped” appearing 100 times. It’s not the translator’s or anyone’s duty to make sure it doesn’t “get boring/samey” for the english consumers.
Next you’re gonna tell me that “anata /danna-sama” needs to be mixed up with “honey,sweetie, qtpie, lil’ muffins, my teddy bear” because it’s “used too much” by married women.”
“That’s the problem for them. They want translators to make up their lines instead of translating stuff as it is. Some of these idiots speak out from time to time how they love/hate their job because “Japs are weird, ugh…, but at least I can change it to suit my views!””
“Thing is translators want to push “liberal” translations because then they can’t be held accountable for messing up lines. Most of the people complaining on twitter and the images you see passed around are from translators trying to push meme translations. This is propaganda to excuse what are essentially rewrites.”
