What does /civ/ think of BRICS?

The longer they don't get their shit together the better.

You say that like the global economy is a zero-sum game.

In general, economic alliances and their mutual benefits tend to outlast individual politicians in much the same way as the #1 seed in a sports tournament will tend to beat the #16 seed. It's not that the 16th place competitor can't pull off an upset or Putin can't get Russia suspended from the G8, but those are exceptions to the general trends.

Foreign Minister, Commrade Lavrov, has stated that the G8 is an informal organization and membership is optional for Mother Russia. The Russian Federation has been suspended; not expelled.

It isn't? Tell that to the Roman Empire. Press the provinces, expand the frontier--bring the spoils of taxation and conquest to the Capital.

Give me a shovel so I can dig up the Roman empire and tell that to its corpse's face and point its decayed eyesockets at the global economy.

BRICS is vital for humanity. If there aren't two economic alliances competing with each other then there will be no economic competition.

Globalists want to start ww3 and remove economic competition indefinitively.

I think it's alright, I just wish it wasn't Zuma in that picture. Look up fire pool and Jacob Zuma.

They should call themselves The Aristocrats.

Globalists against global trade? Seems legit...

...if your sloppy terminology has turned your mind into porridge.

And have you never heard about private enterprise? Aren't centrally planned. Aren't part of some conspiracy.

Logic and independent thought aren't his strong suits.

True. It's not even absurd but sound logic. Populism grows in the gap between logic and reality.

Logic is true if the conclusion follows the premises:

P1: I want easy money
P2: There's a wad of doug on the street
C1: I just leave it

That may be good for me to do, but it doesn't follow the logic. But this does:

P1: I want easy money
P2: There's a wad of doug on the street
P3: I don't want to get into trouble, the owner may be nearby
C1: I just leave it

So if you just substitute the word "globalism" to the phrrase "something bad according to me" it will make much more sense.

You can also substitute "globalists" with "joos."

One of the ways you can spot a nonsense conspiracy theory is how easily the boogeymen can be replaced, and how inevitably they are.

Baseless conspiracy theories evolve with the era in which they are being discussed, usually inserting antagonists that presented an immediate or perceived threat in a previous era but have since gone dormant. Free Masons, the Russians, the Jews, neo-conservatives, globalists; in a couple of decades people will be saying that radical Islam had a hand in the assassination of JFK.

Pretty sure they're already claiming it.

The internet is where mental illness goes to spread.
