'The godfather' is overrated and definitely does not deserve the title of best film of all time.

Animals should have basic rights, as they are conscious beings who experience happiness and suffering in the same way we do. They shouldn't be regarded as property, and should have the right to live in peace. You should not be able to take their lives unless it is necessary (such as if you're starving, they're putting people in danger, or in self-defense). No mass producing billions of them for food, since we don't require meat to be healthy. No hunting them for sport. Proper jail times for those who abuse pets or other animals, not just a slap on the wrist.

Cucumber is THE worst food, it is literally just water

water tastes bad


idk, it's just like mildly bitter or something to me. its not horrible though. i still dont understand how picky eaters enjoy water.
Are you sure that water is clean? Sounds like something's wrong with those pipes lol.

I'm personally not too fond of animals or children.

Marvel movies are stale formulaic lifeless piles of dog shit meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Contrary to what many on this forum believe, capitalism is actually pretty great.

i dont think capitalism is bad, but it isnt great. it causes a lot of problems, and though there are other ones, i dont think there is any other system that could solve the problems. i think society is more the problem

I'm not fond of children either. I agree, I never saw the appeal of Marvel movies or other superhero franchises and movies. Why do you think that capitalism is actually pretty great?

Free market capitalism is the only form of social & economic organization that doesn't require the violation of basic human rights and liberties in order for it to exist. It's an incredibly flexible system that allows for people to flourish, all while rewarding individuality and innovation. Capitalism has demonstrated time and time again that it greatly maximizes economic prosperity and development among nations across the globe.

I'm also very skeptical of overreaching/authoritarian forms of political authority—which unfortunately has been part & parcel for almost every non-capitalistic society. Speaking as someone who's had family live under former communist Czechoslovakia, I'd rather be living in a capitalistic liberal democracy any day of the week.

Speaking as a Marvel fan, I don't think this opinion is very unpopular anymore thanks to Phases 4 and 5. 😅

Oh agreed, but I've been firmly out here hatin' since 2015 lmao
It's destroying the planet so there's absolutely nothing great about it.

I reject your premise and find this criticism to be an unconvincing argument against capitalism, as it implicitly suggests that there's some sort of viable alternative that would infinitely preserve the well-being of the planet. Earth has a finite number of resources that will only be able to sustain human life for so long, even in the absence of capitalism. Bear in mind, some of the greatest ecological disasters in history occurred under socialist regimes (Chernobyl and the Aral Sea).

Ideologues and capitalist detractors regularly claim that capitalism requires infinite growth and the destruction of our planet in order to sustain the system—in neoclassical economics, this is known as extensive growth. However, there exists intensive growth on the flip side. Intensive growth allows us to maximize our outputs while minimizing our inputs. Enhanced productivity through lesser resource consumption is achieved through things like technological developments, job specialization, and even recycling.

For someone who doesn't like the MCU, you're sounding a lot like Thanos. 😂
