When have those in favor of censorship ever been on the right side of history? by Chipit in AskSaidIt

[–]StillLessons 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Censorship and masks are precisely the same instinct: the desire to separate us from each other.

There are two possibilities for human interaction: cooperation or conflict. When we choose to engage with each other, we approach disagreement and danger together, using discussion and debate to find a the best way forward we can agree on. When we choose to fight each other, we approach disagreement by dismissing the "other" as "illegitimate", and we approach danger by forcing "solutions" on those who disagree.

Which are the elites choosing now?

Thanks for actually being on topic. I think it also had to do with f'k phones taken over as on phones you have limited screen space to type and phone users are generally waiting for the bus or their taco to be cooked.etc. Computer users would wait till they got home from work then hop on the keyboard and type a more through response out but phone users generally are one and done people. While both phones and PC's have a computer microprocessor that's about as much similarity as they go despite marketing lies.

Good! It's a partisan system. I do like how much the democrats revere the IMPEECH now, go back and look at their opinions 20 years ago. How fast it changes when theyre accusing the OTHER party of improprieties.

And the mPEACH last week was before we knew who all the protesters were - it turns out that a bunch were activists from protests across the nation (and not conservatives). So how did TRUMPF inspire them? Way back during BLM's popularity earlier this year??

I just wonder marvel at how they can manipulate people so easily.

People are not only stupid (half are stupider than average and most of the rest are really close to average) and scared, but they're economically and informationally stretched very thin, and critically - they're all as divided as TPTB can get them, mostly trapped in ineffective disempowering echo-chambers and misinfo perception bubbles.

This question isn't really fair to people in general. That and you probably aren't being honest with us or yourself.

The reason many don't completely read a post and reply to it half assed are doing so because there really is no reward it. The person posting the question doesn't really want an accurate answer, just a validation of his own opinion. Sometimes the answer is too complicated for the person asking it and the person answering knows that and or doesn't feel like explaining an entire concept.

Often when people ask good questions and get a good answer the person answering would appreciate a continued discussion on the subject or at minimum a thank you. It rarely happens.

It's the problem with our current society. We seek quick satisfaction by gaining easy rewards.

Has anyone cut off or been cut off by friends and family over the political divide. by PencilPusher55 in AskSaidIt

I'm in the UK and I'm no longer political. I focus on women's and children's rights, and can get on with just about anyone. From what I've seen though, it's mostly the woke left who distance themselves from me. I don't bother cutting people off because staying in an echo chamber is stressful, reminds you about the issues you're trying to fight against, and stops you from having a good time.

Having said that, I can't stand idiocy.

Question:

Now that you meantioned it, I read a few articles on Asperger's. It seems that people with Asperger's should be considered the norm, and the others the deficient ones. If I understood correctly, a person with Asperger's sees things for what they are, and not for what they are dressed up to be. Asperger's has no use for flummery and doesn't know what to do with it ---so normal people declare that they have no social skills, they are unable to socialize.

Is that it ?

Yeah I think as long as it's emotionally easier to hold on to an old belief, then that belief will generally be held on to.

The emotion of the new idea has to overwhelm the emotion of defending the status quo. That's why people who are very egoistic often have to get in to fights before they even consider changing their mind.

A few years back I read a book by some sort of brain scientist, I forget the details, but their research showed that people start with the conclusion and then they look for supporting evidence, although they believe the opposite - that they have arrived at the conclusion after weighing the evidence. This is due to the bio-mechanical structure of our brains, that's how the mechanism works, the neural pathways and such. Once a position is taken, people will posit and believe all sorts of unrealistic scenarios to support their position, tolerating high levels of cognitive dissonance, resisting changing their minds as long as they can hold out. Sorry I don't have a link, it was an interesting book.

One game I love but suck at is Logical Journey of the Zoombinis a series of logic puzzles based mostly on 4 traits which puzzles start off easy only requiring 2 then gradually work in difficulty to Very Very Hard. I just have fun watching them Zoombinis get bonked around a lot. I can do most puzzles on the easy difficulty and some on the medium.

Yup sounds about right to me. Most people are very bad at fitting the scraps of narrative they come across in the media, in to a larger understanding of the world that fits all the pieces of information together. And school and media basically discourage this type of thinking as much as possible too.

You'd think it was from trying to protect an academic reputation, but no. I've seen people go apeshit when presented with quite minor things they've got wrong. I think ego is a real issue.

I seem to not invest so much in a pov that I can't do a 180.

I think academia (like real life) really suffers from poor logic. Also they need training in stats, and how to spot a bad Vs good source of information.

But as far as overall problem solving and the public goes, most people don't seem to make new information internally from received information.

Not sure how to explain it, but every time I find some piece of information I want to find exactly how it fits into the other stuff I know. Which helps me spot incorrect data/bullshit fairly quickly, because it doesn't fit. It's like finding an apple in a bowl of cherries.

Most people just seem to take in things they learn, and leave it at that. I think it's like being given parts of a jigsaw puzzle and either putting it together, or just leaving it jumbled in its box.

I'm also obsessive as hell. I'm sure that helps with problem solving.

If you're into Myers Briggs, I'd say it's NT Vs SF.

Most people are SF.

I'm good at puzzles involving shapes and colors and numbers, but I am terrible at things like crosswords. I always feel like the clues are so ambiguous in a way that I don't see how they could reliably be interpreted in to the correct answer. I'm guessing you have a similar feeling with the escape room.

I think part of it is just exposure to that type of problem. If I did lots of crosswords I'd probably get a lot better at understanding how the clues work, and what kind of things to look for. And if you did 10 escape rooms you'd probably get very good at them too.

I think it just has to do what what you've encountered in the past, combined with how good you are at applying lessons learned from past experiences to the current puzzle.

He'd decided at some point what the outcome was, and couldn't change from it.

That's an interesting point. I think people do that a lot. They set anchor points of "Let's just assume this is true since it seems 99% likely to be true, and let's move on from there"

Then a whole house of cards gets built up around those mental anchor points. Then 10 years down the road if one of those anchor points is proven wrong, it will upend the entire house of cards. This is why if those anchor points are challenged, people often become hyper-emotional rather than hyper-logical.

I agree. It's distracting BS. These people were upset about electoral fraud and their tyrant will be replaced with another tyrant. They didn't even demand anything. At all. They weren't even effective at getting the fraud addressed. Meanwhile on the other front, the fake "progressives" didn't even demand anything. This has been largely ignored and swept under the rug. Now people are even talking about having AOC take over after Biden because she'll be 35 and popular.

Effective* political theater doesn't come out of nowhere.

So, I have Asperger's, and I rock at puzzles and I do a bunch daily. Im also heavily into science, and I can tell you plenty of people with PhDs absolutely suck at logic and problem solving where complex data is involved.

I had arguments with PhDs (online) that I won before I had a degree/or never had one in the relevant subject.

A lot of people have a "lazer focus" and get bogged down in minor details and miss obvious large facts that mean their position is untenable.

Prime example, back in 2010 I had an epic argument with a PhD as to whether humans had Neanderthal ancestry, based on a set of bones. As I pointed out, non Africans have a whole bunch of genes that are very ancient, and don't come from Africa (tmrca over 200k in some cases). These bones had Neanderthal traits, their prognathism etc was down to Neanderthal ancestry, not that ancient Europeans looked like modern Africans.

And, Neanderthals were so close to us genetically that we certainly could have produced young.

This guy just couldn't see there was a kind of "wall" blocking his "logic path." He'd decided at some point what the outcome was, and couldn't change from it.

I was proven right by a DNA study less than a month later.

I'm seeing the same thing in the covid outbreak. In the UK we've been told IFR mortality is about 1.5%, whereas the data actually shows its about 0 .25%. it's like people aren't seeing the info in context, or spotting what is a good a d bad source.

[–]TheJamesRocket 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It is traced to the 911 Truth movement, ultimately. Truthers came into the mainstream with the release of documentarys like Loose Change in 2005. This put the establishment in a difficult position. They were already facing alot of criticism over the War on Terror, and the claims of a 9/11 False Flag seemed to amplify the anti-war movement. The establishment scrambled to undermine the 911 Truthers, and one of the ways they did this was by stigmatising that label.

I'm a proud truther, truth-seeker, and conspiracy analyst. I'm also a cis white male, anti-war, and anti-Zionist. Call me other things if you like, but they lack credibility to those who know.

"Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."

Sure, I know there are "truther" idiots who believe in holograms and Flat Earth, intentionally or ignorantly trying to discredit truth-seekres. So what? There are people who believe a lot of crazy shit in politics, religion, science, etc.

I still like the "truther" label. It's short, catchy, to the point, and the stigma only applies if you let it. Labels help when defining things and working on concepts. Sure labels and stereotypes, like anything, can be helpful and/or harmful. Simply being aware of the manipulation can help keep you ahead.

its just a label to discredit people like conspiracy theorist, holocaust denier, climate change denier, anti-vaxxer etc... it doesn't matter what it means, what it represents or even if it's accurate, it's just a political weapon used to discredit people. Avoid these propaganda terms like the plague. Don't use them, don't respond to them and if someone insists on pressing you on it just ask them what they think it means and talk about the term objectively and sensibly. It's modern newspeak.

I created /s/bugs, which is private. I like to go through the code running the site, so I use /s/bugs to report potential issues, bugs or security problems. The messaging system... it isn't good for talking to multiple people. Having to relay info between d3rr, VantaFount and magnora7... that would be quite difficult. So private subs, they're kind of like Discord or Slack, in a way.

Don't listen to these brainwashed commentors, like Amelia.

This was scripted. He's got a nice place set up for him somewhere. He probably has a few more planned events that he will take part in. This is a charade.

He'll probably just run again in 2024 — unless they ban him from running for re-election, which could happen if enough Republicans defect. He'd probably win the primaries, but if he doesn't: I wouldn't discount a third party run. Perhaps Constitution or Reform; fun fact: his first campaign was Reform. He could very well just run Independent or make his own party, though.

Biden won't last four years — this man couldn't even run a proper campaign. If he survives, and somehow doesn't get twenty-fifth'd, he won't be in the mental state to properly lead the country, and Kamala Harris will be the de-facto President. He'll just become a rubber stamp.

Kamala Harris will probably be the Democratic nominee in 2024, with fierce opposition from AOC. I don't think they'll try to run Biden's corpse if he's still around, but they might. Doesn't really matter, though, since Harris would still hold the real power. The Democrats will win the Presidential election in 2024, I'm fairly certain about that.

The Democrats control the Senate, but they won't get much done, because the party is split between hardcore leftists like AOC and moderates like Biden. I predict some fierce in-fighting over the next four years. The Republican party will have its fair share of in-fighting as well.

The economy will continue to get worse, even when Covid subsides, since the damage has already been done. This will give the populist factions a major boost, but I don't think they'll overcome the elitists anytime soon.

Most private subs are empty (they just want to sit on the name), and the only ones I've seen that are actually active are ones the admins made for private discussion. It ain't like the illuminati is plotting behind that little key icon.

I make subs private to stop invasions (and only temporarily), because some people tell all their friends to spam a sub they don't like, or a sub that's modded by someone they don't like. There's way too much drama, and that's largely because the Libertarian faction of Saidit hates me.

I assume that all activity can be traced to me by anyone with a sufficiently high hacking skills and/or government clearance,

Oh definitely. This is a discussion I have with my brother from time to time. He's as paranoid as they come and anytime we talked he say, "lets put our phones outside" To which I would usually answer, "my phones in the car, and switched off anyway" Now we are not criminals, except perhaps to certain .gov entities, but he was so paranoid and I'd say, mate, they only have a handful of people actually available to listen to all these 'secretly recorded' conversations, computers do all the sorting and would just flag some that sounded really suss in keywords. But he couldn't get it!

I said do you turn your phone off when driving up country? No he doesn't. "Why not" I said, "it's not like you can use it driving" "And all the while your driving you location is being logged on some computer somewhere from cell tower triangulation algorithms. What happens if some terrible crime is committed in a house just as you drive past? Why go through all the police investigation bullshit when you know your innocent? Just turn the fucker off when you're not using it" And I wasn't talking through my arse, lots of crims are caught here in Oz by the location of their cell phones.

So yes, they can get you if they want, but with a billion people ranting on about this stuff planet wide [mostly china lol] I highly doubt they are going to dedicate an intelligence unit to find someone like me, just another conspiracy nut to them hey.

Anything you do on a phone with a rear facing camera(selfie) will be traced to you. You can gain some anonymity using a PC, but chances are, if you've ever, AND I MEAN EVER SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD, used an email address for banking, taxes, shopping, employment, porn, etc: you are already on a list in a data bank with a number assigned to your identity.

And whether you "delete" or not will not make a hill of beans. Every keystroke is permanent and they will not forget who you are. There are massive underground data banks maintained by governments around the world. They keep getting bigger and better equipped all the time.

That is a reasonable precaution that I have followed.

But I believe RL identity can be linked by correlating online activity and IP addresses. (I use a VPN too, but that simply assures that only my VPN provider can sell my tracking data.)

I assume that all activity can be traced to me by anyone with a sufficiently high hacking skills and/or government clearance, but I am no expert.

I have never used my real name online except with eBay paypal and a few government agencies, but none of my email addresses are in my real name, never have been. It was obvious from the start of the internet that it was going to be a shit-show so why expose yourself? having a social media account in your own name is... well just stupid in my opinion, unless you treat it as though you were addressing a crowd in Nicaragua from a podium on a dark night. Very circumspectly in other words.

Heedful of circumstances and potential consequences; prudent. Literally, looking about on all sides; hence, examining carefully all the circumstances that may affect, a determination; watchful on all sides; cautious; wary. To look on all sides of; examine carefully; scrutinize.

I absolutely agree with you. There is definitely structure to the madness that is the ape mind. There are also those who behave above and beyond the expectation one can have of their kin. While fortunate as individuals and unfortunate for them to face discrimination we must understand several facts of life. Individuals should be judged as such, but groups of individuals are entirely different. Any group larger than a dozen or so will begin to fall along a normal bell curve, gaussian distribution, of the personality traits of that people. A group of them will always regress towards their mean average proportional to the size of the group. And from that even exceptional individuals rarely ever escape. As an individual I can treat with them, but when they occupy territories of our nation and breed like rats, individuals they are not, rather a group that can be defined entirely by statistical averages.
