>Why does /pol/ choose the worst type of investments?
Because /pol/ is retarded. The /pol/ of today is nothing like the one of even 2 years ago because the board gets faster so threads 404 so fast even before a sourced or original well thought out argument can be typed and responded to. Everyone else are shills, bots, glowniggers, and election tourists, and boomers.
>Why do they form cults?
to satisfy their instinct for belonging and being special since they probably have no status or friends IRL. I still go to /pol/ mostly for entertainment or to collect memes to use elsewhere.
/pol/ is too dumb and poor to see that globalism benefits white people because they do not have a 401k to pump and they can not afford to live away from niggers nor school their children away from niggers. /pol/ are the white trash sharecroppers that thought even if they act like niggers they are still white because of their skin. Modern /pol/ wants daddy government to solve all their problems while classic /pol/ is more libertarian.
For example look at gay marriage, if you made gay people live in sequestered work camps /pol/ would call it based, but they already are in work camps, its called wageslavery. The faggots consume more to feed their libido so they already are slaves, but /pol/ does not benefit so they want the government to ban faggotry. Even the child indoctornation issue is moot when you homeschool or move to a conservative area.
The other problem with /pol/ is they are jealous they are not born a Chad that can get a white qt3.14 virgin. While that is the only relationship worth having, porn, whores, and donor eggs are a suitable replacement, but /pol/ is to inflamed with desire to see it.
My personal observation is that bad investments are shilled in right wing circles to prevent them from gaining capital and power, just like vaxx and religious arguments against the current regime.
