The video is fine but the comment section I mean good lord so many Holocaust deniers ugh

How the hell are these holocaust deniers so fucking popular? With all the evidence, I'm surprised so many people deny it happened. Then again there are quite a lot of moon hoaxers around on the net.

Perfect descriptions of how the Creationist, Theocratic, and Statist mind works.

I talked to a Japanese guy about their politics once. his description is very...interesting:

-like America, two parties, both want big government.
-both parties are relatively conservative by US standards
-The Japanese Government is even more financially inept than that of the US (let that sink in).

Well they did have the lost decade so I guess that shouldn't surprise me.

I'd previously seen the rather embarrassing (for victim disarmament activists, that is) data on Jamaica, including that fact that police don't dare wear any portion of their uniform while off duty for fear of being murdered for their service weapon and ammunition, and that armed suspects are almost never taken alive, and usually die of gunshot wounds clearly inflicted while they had their arms raised in a traditional surrender pose.

I heard Brazil is the same way. I'm not sure about Puerto Rico though. Getting a gun licence is those places are hard I heard.

Even with the UK apparently not counting all the crimes that are known about in their official statistics, the violent crime rate in the UK is still four times that of the US.  (It's also a third higher than the violent crime rate in Canada, which has had a higher violent crime rate than the US for at least the last 45 years.  This also corresponds to when Canada placed more restrictions on long guns than the US.  Canada has always had greater restrictions on hand guns than the US.  And if anyone attempts to use Canada as an example of a place where gun control didn't lead to tyranny, you can point out that this is only true because gun control was started here by the tyrannical Family Compact as a means of (ultimately, unsuccessfully) inhibiting rebellion.)

Speaking of the UK I found something here that you might want to read.

http://crimepreventionresearchcenter.org/2013/12/murder-and-homicide-rates-before-and-after-gun-bans/

They also seem to forget that there are nations with stricter gun laws with even higher murder rates. For example Mexico.

When ever I use this example they say that it is because Mexico is 3rd World Country and they are bordering US with lots of guns and that Mexico is not like say the UK, Australia or Canada.

This argument doesn't work either because there is one developed country that have even stricter gun laws than UK Canada or Australia and  have even higher murder rate and guess what it's an ISLAND as well. What is this country's name? It's TAIWAN.

TAIWAN (Republic of China) with a rate of 3.0/100000 Compared to UKs rate of 1.0/100000, AUs rate of 1.1/100000, and Canada's rate of 1.6/10000. and at one point Taiwans murder rate was even higher than the current US rate

 http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/compareyears/180/rate_of_homicide_any_method

And you have to known the homicide rates in undeveloped countries vary widely. For example Yemens gun laws are not as strict as Jamaica's and its homicide is far lower.

The book of exalted deeds does address this at one part when talking about the issue of "What if an authority figure tells a paladin to do something unethical?"

The answer is simply: A corrupt figure is not legitimate authority and the paladin is right to expose them.

That should answer it.  If a paladin must choose between the law and his own conscience, the latter wins.

that would be neutral good or chaotic good on the D&D alignment, right?
