    The problem with the left is that they want to get rid of what feels wrong.
    The problem with the right is that they want to fight because getting rid of their old stuff feels wrong.
    The first thing a hoarder does when you force them to dump their old junk is to get mad and cry about it.
    The older you are the older your feelings are and the greater attachment you have to them.
    This created tradition.
    Tradition suffocates and kills the developing baby.
    So the babies will tear down your traditions so they can create the nest traditionalists failed to make for their brood.
    To make the elders cry over their own mistakes which they have turned to idols.
    Idols that will cause pain in the feelings of their followers when cast down.

    Common denominator is that both sides stuck in your feelings like a bunch of dark side bitches.
    Search your feelings...
    Better yet don't.

    The Haunted Mansion has remained mostly unchanged since the 60s, no?
    Paul Frees is still the ghost host.
    His recordings are quite amusing.
    "That's like giving whisky to an indian"
    Surprised he hasn't been replaced with a transgender person of color yet

    Idolatry is bad.
    Won't get an argument from me there.

    But this is 'Zippity-Do-Dah', 'Laughing Place' and 'How do you do'

    From a pure creative standpoint, it just doesn't make sense to erase this from history.

    I think it's okay to have a creative opinion, healthy nostalgia, and some level of anger for why this is occurring.

    So some dude created shit u like.
    Then the dude that owns said shit change shit.
    Generations later you unhappy with what the legal of owners have decided to change.
    This is not a problem with the system.
    It was not built for you just because it was built for the child version of you.
    It's now rebuilt for the next child.
    It's not for nostalgia.
    It's for the kids.
    Like star wars now.
    This is what Disney always did.
    They did it to your great great grendpappies Grimms fairy tales.

    Tradition is a horrible thing.
    Just ask the Jews.
    They sing a song bout it.

    I don't.
    What is healthy about nostalgia.
    That's an oxymoron.
    Algia is not health.
    It's pain.
    It's not no pain no gain.
    It's just pain and no gain
    Some level of anger over the legal owners of something changing what they own.

    Would some level of anger be ok if you decide to change something from your business that you don't like to do but some of your customers demand you still do?

    'Healthy' as in no-harm-done.
    There are people who create incubators of past technology and pop-culture in their homes because they cannot confront the present. That's unhealthy.
    I get what you're doing.

    Of course I'd welcome people to be upset if I changed something about my business.
    Why not?
    Did I ever say they didn't have the right to do so?

    I see as nostalgia as unhealthy.
    Nothing good comes from it.
    Country music being the biggest example lol.

    You have rights.
    Right now you almost have the right to burn someones business down if they make you feel sad.
    Why would you welcome people being upset with your business?
    Those aren't your customers then.
    They are entitled to not like something about your business.
    They are not entitled to you giving a flying fuck if their attitude is not 100% on the up and up.

    Cops did that. Customers made them kneel and they kneeled to a mob.
    It hurt their pride so much when they realized how they had debased themselves that they turned around and started bashing heads harder a few days later.
    Then they have to disband because once they bent the knee and folks saw that image all fear and what respect was had for the cops was gone.

    What's wrong with a steel guitar?

    The rest, whatever. I get what you're saying but don't necessarily agree! But you're always a treat!

    You might read Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty... Leerhsen categorically and meticulously shitcans the smear campaign on Cobb's name. He purports that Cobb's enemies & a few authors & journalists did a fantastic job of seeing to it that Ty was painted in the worst possible light, when there's actually damn little substantive evidence other than one shitty book written by a very drunk and pissed-off writer [Al Stump] to indicate that Ty was the piece of shit most people think he was.

    Or maybe he was. I wasn't there.

    PS - I know you were being quite sarcastic btw. At least I think you were :hide:

    I know you get what im trying to say.
    I actually like steel guitar, and sad country/corrido music and have as unhealthy relationship with nostalgia as anyone else.
    It is something to be wary of.
    At some point your culture becomes ALL nostalgia. Which means its not creating new dreams to be remembered.
    The spirit of the time right now is that everyone is nostalgic for another time.
    Be it the time past or the time that never was and they want to see coming.
    When everything is nostalgia that's when everybody hurts at anything everyone does.
    And now being offended/hurt gives you rights and removes rights of others.
    Because nostalgia is all we got.
    So we defend it with our lives.
    And then it loses all its appeal to me.
    Because nostalgia/traditions/feelings become a god worth killing and dying for.
    Fuck that.
    Its taliban shit with other names.
    Like firebombing statues or going in hot with rifles to 'defend' a man of stone, metal, and wood.
    Both are taliban shit.

    But I understand the symbolism behind the aggressive action of the stute toppler talibans.
    Like when we understood folks tumbling statues of leaders or heroes in Egypt, Iraq, and many parts of the middle east during the arab spring or our liberating invasions.

    I do not understand the symbolism behind the aggressive action of shooting or harming people to defend statues.
    That is on the verge of nazi level shit.
    Police are not Mr Burns attack dogs. The fact that they are used that way is telling.
    When they stop working and being trained like german shepherds is when you know they are no longer there as serving labradors and protecting shepherds.

    Exactly.
    History is about learning something new that inspires a lesson that you can apply to your life at some point in the future.
    Not about how it affects your feelings.

    so then the Dodgers should maybe go w the pink unis w bows?
    its ok to start your own amusement park and leave these rides like what they are which could be argued a piece of historical art
    no one is forcing anyone to ride them
    the outraged cancel culture is not a good thing for any of us

    when it opened in 69 it was scary and they've just been toning it down ever since
    no real people in the ride and w the latest renovation its going to be better lit...for a haunted house
    the things that jump out were everywhere and fast so you at least got a little scare shock the first time
    now they are super slow and just make a pffft of air instead of screams
    a bunch of the ghosts have changed or been removed idk probably because people complained it was too scary...for a haunted house
    maybe the new version can add a coronavirus and riot wing called 2020
    oh and Walt died in 65 before it opened so a lot changed about how it was to be built

    The issue is not should the Dodgers wear pink.
    The issue is what should you do if the Dodgers wear pink.
    At what point does it become enough of an issue to where you do something. Protest? Stop going to games? Become an Angels fan?
    They wear periwinkle sometimes.

    of course the cancel culture is not a good thing
    disney is exercising their own right to make a change to their business to reflect the new market realities
    everyone used to salute the flag like a nazi before we decided we didnt want others to confuse us for nazis so we changed it up.
    That was not that long ago but that nazi salute shit got cancelled when folks started thinking that it wasnt a good look.
    Just like playing buttsup got cancelled and fights after school got cancelled and hockey without a helmet and pitchers taking a bat and facing live pitching in a baseball game.
    Wait I got off track.
    Point is that we are Dodgers fans.
    Even if they change the colors.
    Dodger blue blood would bleed through any jersey.

    So you want to make your own micro amusement park then.
    Like one of those escape room type things.
    Where you have to survive the crown plague that starts with the people getting a dry cough and ends with fibrous keratin tumors that grow within the respiratory system and up the brain stem coming out different points of the scalp as scaly horn like protrusions that serve as antenna for the borg like communication these mutated crowned zombies have with each other. You have to chop their heads off so they dont zerg on you and your friends.
    Set in the middle ages or some such.
    Its like the haunted house meets 28 days later.
    With swords.

    i embrace change and have had massive change all around me in my personal and professional life
    it can be frightening and exhilarating at the same time
    this is happening all at once because a bunch of losers have nothing better to do
    anything remotely controversial is shut down
    i like exchanges of ideas but just white (racist) washing of everything all at once?
    fuck they want to tear down the emancipation statue of Lincoln paid for by slaves!
    these people are fucking idiots and now they are in control of the public space

    Yeah you said it so now what?
    You lose, they won.
    So either get on the winning side.
    Or find a better way to fight than to show that you are sad that they are beating you.
    It is better to burn down your own armory in defeat than to let it embolden the enemies supplies.
    In other words the milk has been spilt.
    Instead of crying about the glass being broken and the milk being wasted why not sell them plastic containers for their milk?
    You win and they win and that is how America works.
    Fuck the container it comes in. Its all about the milk and how you honeyed it from some innocent holy cow.
