>Ultimately, I think racists played the long game and won.
They really truly didn't. Everything after the UTR rally was a total disaster.

Moreover they weren't playing the long game and were pretty damn low IQ for "5D chessmasters." Trump was a short term sacrifice for long term victory. In Tarot it would be described as a reversal
>A seemingly total victory that hides within it the seeds of crushing and final defeat
Likewise for liberalism, when Trump when it clearly was
>A crushing and seemingly total defeat that hides within it the seeds of final victory
The smart thing to do is always take down your enemy like the rural folk wisdom how to take down a barn: cut a small hole in the roof and stand back and watch.

Perhaps I wasn't clear by my last line. It was the racists on imageboards that steadfastly held the line and kept their messaging consistent throughout the years which drove away non-racists and even embarrassed liberals who were unprepared to respond to them. The only boards on 4krebs that happen to be liberal or left-wing these days are /his/, /mu/ and /lit/, and even /his/ and /lit/ still happens to have racists from time to time.

I disagree with the notion that "pretending racism is over" would be the winning move because, if the respective careers of anti-racist activists like Tim Wise, Jane Elliott, Robin DiAngelo, Ibram X. Kendi and others I can't be bothered to recall are any indication, fighting racism is an evermoving goalpost. They have redefined racism to mean literally anything that puts colored people in a disadvantageous position even if its in done entirely according to the rules of equality. This is why they have now shifted the discourse away from equality to equity. It's why conversations with anti-racists ultimately end in failure when you play by their rules. Blowing up the game and saying "White people have interests" is a far more viable strategy.

In terms of actualizing real life political goals, you are correct that the right got high on their own supply and impulsively took an opening when everyone should've hesitated and carefully calculated the next big move. Complacency is death, and that was another critical error on part of the right. Instead of playing like they're losing, they got reckless. No one argues that UTR wasn't a total shitshow, and ironically, the fallout couldn't have divided the right more. There was the era of infighting known as the Optics War which Groypers / AmNats openly feuded with alt-righters / WNs over who ruined everything when it should've been the opportunity where differences were put aside and resources pooled together to fight common enemies.

>why do Chinese repress the Muslim minority in its west?
Beijing represses every non-state association and every collective identity besides "citizen of the PRC", or subdues it to the point of it becoming an entirely state-puppeteered farce deprived of all agency.

I think the level of repression depends on who the Party deems you to be, and in some cases also on where you are. Smaller non-muslim rural ethnic minorities tend to get reduced to the role of docile, simple but happy people providing colourful background to propaganda and exoticism to Chinese tourists [0]. It's different with identity groups that are sufficiently large and poorly integrated to be classified as a collective potential threat. Imagine you are a young male member of a sizeable group that lives largely separate from the Hàn, you communicate among yourselves in a language they cannot understand, and some members of your group have recently been implicated in violence against Hàn.

The Manchus are probably too integrated and invested in larger Hàn society to be a fertile ground for separatism, except of course for the odd wewuzzer (>>79221). They are a minority in much of their heartland [1] and – after peaceful self-Sinicization while they dominated China – no longer cause suspicion by speaking a language among themselves that state agents might not understand.

> it's 18° in my Altbau room without heating
For reference (again): 18° in a room is really cold for Russians. If I remember correctly, the Soviet sanitary minimum for living rooms (which has been preserved in Russia) is 19°, while the normal temperature in apartments during winter is typically 21-25°. Everyone has "Euro windows" now, so even a cold wind right into the windows is not an issue anymore (I still remember how people used to thoroughly fill the gaps with foam rubber and cover them with adhesive tape for winter, though).

Now if that has been presented as something new that has occured because of the conflict, it's a different matter.

I reckon 16°C-21°C is fine...

>The World Health Organization in 1987 found that comfortable indoor temperatures between 18–24 °C (64–75 °F) were not associated with health risks for healthy adults with appropriate clothing, humidity, and other factors. For infants, elderly, and those with significant health problems, a minimum 20 °C (68 °F) was recommended. Temperatures lower than 16 °C (61 °F) with humidity above 65% were associated with respiratory hazards including allergies.[9][10]

>With the next turn of a second you will attack mirgrants for not having a job though, pathetic flag in the wind.
Well, healthy adult males are normally expected to have some job and not live off the state (= other taxpayers). It's not like it is an obligation in Germany (for a good reason, too), but it's moral. On the other hand, if a woman doesn't have a job, it's generally viewed as something much more normal (though in that case it's presumed that she mostly stays with kids and does other supplementary duties).

Now, compare to pathetic, poor Gayrope! 23°C was considered the maximum even back in the eighties! Still, we get constant propaganda

The news of blackouts in Ukraine makes me wonder, how well prepared is Ernst for 3-4 hour blackouts? Especially periodic episodes where you might lose power during peak hours over weeks. The worst case scenario raised here is 5-7pm on weekdays in January and February which is lighter but should make commuting interesting.

I think my laptop should be able to survive on battery for a few hours but I'll have to work out power banks which appears to be its own hell when it comes to AC connected laptops. I'll also need to think about storing media for when I just want to zone out for an hour or two given the internet would likely be down or at least stuck on mobile internet. That said, I live in a well insulated flat so cold shouldn't be a problem and I'm a big guy so I reckon I'll just murder panic buyers this time.

Hello, I am a new in this place and I didn't find any real estate/housing thread so I'm creating one here. I will post some thoughts and updates of my journey on finally acquiring my own place. You can see this thread as my blog and use it as your own blog too.

I have a dream to live in my own place, so I dont rent a flat and saving up money. Since flats are too overpriced and I have a piece of land in the city, I'm planning to build a house. There is already a one bulding on that piece of land - a garage, but its not legalized yet. The piece of land is not connected to electicity(and a whole bystreet) but I believe that its a solvable issue. 2 weeks ago I found an architect who will make a house plan for me. He asked me to send him pictures of houses which I like and make a draft plan of the floors. Pic related are houses that I liked the most. I want a one-storey house with an attic and a semi-basement. If everything goes right, I can have a house plan with the needed documents and construction permission till the next Spring.
No. 84189
This, very much this. I've seen it all along, all those people who got a house and said: Well, I need to do this and that, and then I'm done. No. You're never done. When you're done doing one thing, the next one comes up. The garden shed, the pond your wife wants to have, the roof, the garage, the lawn, the swing for the kids, the trees that need to be cutted, the heating, the gas/oil, the driveway, and everything the city administration throws at you. Also most people had tons of people helping them on their house, so prepare to be trapped in a neverending cycle of saturday helping, where you visit your helpers and help them out with their garden, shed, pool, driveway, you name it. You will get grilled meat, beer and watching football together in return, though.

I'd say that if you actually like doing stuff like this (working on your property surely is more rewarding than working for some Shekelberg company you don't care about), it's ok. But if you prefer sleeping late, slacking off and gaming to working on your house, then you're fucked.
No. 84192
You have to be careful when talking about houses and lots of downstream work because you have to make a distinction between stuff I want to do and stuff I have to do.
And if you build a new house and the workers are doing their work properly, the stuff you have to do will be substantially less.
However, moving into an old house (in Germany the worst case is something built between the 40s and 60s), definitely WILL make you work for it constantly.

I can even provide examples:

The house I grew up in, it's a bit over 100 years old or so, no right angles, but at least built of stone, but apart from that horribly insulated and the proper course of action would be a complete gutting and having an armada of craftsmen rebuilding it. But who has money for that? Just this week my mom wrote that some radiator broke and some roof tiles seem to be missing.

Other example: My dad and his wife had one of those readymade houses erected 20 years ago. The house itself, while having thin (i.e. sound-propagating) walls, just stands there. Literally zero upkeep outside of the odd repainting. But my dad is constantly working in the garden, but that's entirely on him.

>you got any idea how long it's going to take you? a lot of "maybe"s around with the current situation, i assume?
Due to my estimations, I need 4-6 years to move in. It's enough for me to save up enough money and finish the construction. Actually, it can be done in less time but I'm doing conservative estimates. I live in a region, far away from the frontlines and I don't see how this may change at all. The only big thing is that I can get drafted into the army. In this case, the construction process will be postponed. Everything may change multiple times but since I can't predict or change this situation, I just adapt when changes happen.

I understand what are you talking about. Fortunately, I have a father who has some experience in building stuff(not professionally but for himself though), he just knows such stuff so I can rely on him.

How is the life in the countryside in Europe?
i have been in different imageboards, like Krautchan, Kohlchan, Ylilauta and 4chan /int/ in his early days, but i have almost never seen a thread made by a western european about life as a farmer or in the countryside at least.
Do these people have special benefits from their goverments for pursuing such a life style there? or they are impoverished as for example farmers in the Americas?
Here life in the farm is mostly for people who are either too ignorant to have a job in the city, or people with lot of money who work in the farm just for fun. My family falls in the second category, thought when my parents were young they definitely were in the first.

A Russian musician, MC Ivan Petunin, killed himself. Fearing the next rounds of conscriptions, he made a video explaining that he didn't want to kill in the Ukraine or be sodomized in prison for a decade.
>“I’m not ready to take up arms and kill my own kind. Forgive me, those who love me, but sometimes you have to die for your principles. And my final decision is how exactly I will die: from the people we attacked, (in order, – ed.) to remain forever in history as a person who supported what is happening, or to express his final protest,” he said.
