Cyril's picture

2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

I can't speak about the other points, for lack of sufficiently objective data on this end, but I'm confident that these are pretty much well in place already, or not far from being so:

2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

If one asks me, in France, we also have had #3 on that list of shame for a good while now.

(You can inherit, but only to some extent, as the state and its perverted laws and specific taxations can decide the way they want to which proportion)

I lost my illusions about France long ago, as I know now that she will need a serious slap in the face before she ever wakes up to her utter insanity of voting the socialists 4 times in the last 30 years.

But to see this happening HERE in America, in turn, is...

DOWNRIGHT REVOLTING for me.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

It really hurts, but attempting to read the Communist Manifesto

may be worth the effort.

Pandas can't drive.

We really don't have private property

That's one of the ways they dupe people into thinking we're free. If it can be taxed away or legally seized, it's not essentially ours.

2, 3, 5, and 10 are full on 6

2, 3, 5, and 10 are full on

6 is pretty close

1, 4, 7, and 9 sound like agenda 21
