If you invented something unique your first problem is going to be describing it to yourself. You'll need new nomenclature. The second problem is describing the unique thing to someone else.

One could argue that anything that can be nailed down by language cannot be unique because the metaphors and phrases to describe it preexisted.

The Haganah could disavow the Irgun (and the Stern Gang) with the same credibility that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp could disavow Hezbollah.

Menachem Begin, who led Irgun also founded Likud and as the sixth Prime Minister of Israel was in command of the IDF . So yes, many people (including the US) considered Irgun a terrorist organization, that didn't put it and it's leaders outside the mainstream of Israeli military, politics, or government. Besides, it's crimes during the Mandate and Nakba always served the Zionist cause, and even if the Haganah or "Consultancy" didn't approve or order their actions, they were happy to take the benefit, and occasionally the credit.

Um, it was the Interior Ministry that defeated Ashina. And the person most directly responsible for weakening Ashina is Owl. Almost everything Wolf does to damage Ashina was Owl's manipulation.

Genichiro's whole motivation relies on Ashina being doomed, and that was long before he knew who Wolf was. Ishin also explicitly knows that his shogunate is on the clock and makes little effort to save Ashina or himself.

Genichiro is the perfect skill check and greatest mid-game boss. (sorry ornstein-smough)

Every playthrough I look forward to him the way I look forward to Artorias.

Ironically medical care is a right to prisoners but it’s not for everyone else.

Medical care in US prisons is largely handled by a few for-profit companies that make money by providing inadequate care or refusing care at all. Prisoners routinely die from medical neglect. Healthcare behind bars is more capitalism, not less.

Oh, and healthcare is not a right, it's the State's duty to care for people in it's custody. That means prisoners have no agency over their care. For example if you're arrested at an accident, the EMTs gain consent from the police, not the patient. This is how EMTs can administer anti-psychotics and strong sedatives on the sidewalk after the pigs have kicked your ass.

That's hard to verify since nobody has ever read Lacan. Most of us don't even read Zizek, we just heard about them both from Mark Fisher.

The bear may maul you, but it won't corner you and explain statistically why it's the better choice.

Libertarians: If you ignore how problems are systemic, then the individual can solve everything.

Honestly, I'm suspicious the writers at Reason use media to spread their message, why not just convince your friends one conversation at a time?

Headline: US officials admit that TickTock ban intended to censor Gaza news.

Article: Romney and Blinken blame Israel's disastrous PR on social media and opine that this is a good reason to ban platforms like TickTock.

If you want an institution that keeps the peace, protects citizens, and is accountable for use of force, then you'll have to create one whole-cloth. Because the police are not that institution and they never were intended to be.
