Trump believes "socialism = Stalin." But how was socialism defined by people like Albert Einstein & Harry Truman? by Anticapitalist in Socialism

Similarly (on the topic of what these "-ism" words mean) here's what anarchism should mean:


  • Anarchism is not a system of giant corporations ruling society.

    eg big corporations like ABC, NBC, Ford, etc are constructs of government.

  • In anarchism the property systems of genocide & killing (eg killing the native americans so the 1% can own almost all the land) are not legitimate. Similarly, the basis of modern property in Europe is the mass killings where the very wealthy took the land from the public, this is not legitimate. It is an illegitimate distribution of land, where the few can profit essentially just from owning land.

    Instead (in anarchism) land is distributed in an egalitarian way, and thus there is no landless class forced to work for the land owning class. Workers would start their own businesses/co-ops on the land they personally use.

  • Anarchism is about ending violence that oppresses/exploits so we achieve a society where everyone is treated equally. But that does not mean "everyone has the same amount of stuff". There won't be totally equal social connections, work, or reward. There will be minor injustices/defects due to the randomness of birth and how society functions.

    However, without violent systems of oppression/exploitation, things will be massively more egalitarian than under the government of the billionaires & industrialists. Especially in terms of ownership of big properties like land & the means of production.

    (eg under anarchism everyone would own land, & thus almost every worker would own their means of production.)

  • Anarchism is not a system where the poor have no voice and the wealthy choose who is in power. No one should "be in power."

I have a couple of posts from today lower down on the page, do you also?

Yes if I scrolled down enough I did.

And my current frontpage is starting to look better.

But IMO stuff from 2 days ago shouldn't be on the front page- it discourages people from checking Saidit because they keep seeing the same stuff.

If the other mod isn't there, then it shouldn't matter.

I've built up many subs for multiple years (making thousands of posts) just to have some absentee guy return and take over.

eg I built up a sub for 7 years- I had endless comments and submissions in the sub.

Basically:

  • The top mod was active for one day.

  • He created the sub, submitted like 3 things, then left.

  • I was active in the sub like 2500 days. I knew everyone.

This random guy just returns and demods me, tells me if I mention his actions to anyone he'll ban me. A total bully.

And it's not just me, it's the norm. It's a common horror story I've heard from lots of other mods.


Reddit Request.

On reddit, if a mod is gone for 2 months then you can request the sub. Magpie has been gone for a whole year. So I think it's extremely fair to request he be removed.


Promotion.

And I've been planning to promote this sub on reddit, but I've been waiting until this guy is removed.

I don't want to build this up and have it happen yet again. It just keeps happening, over & over, and over.

Please help me.

Hey /u/d3rr.

I'm responding about requesting an abandoned sub. A few months ago you said:

What if we worked something out like user for 2 weeks... second mod for 90 days, then top mod after that?

An update:

  • /u/Magnora7 made me the 2nd mod.

  • I've been second mod for over 90 days.

  • And the top mod (magpie) has been gone for a year now.

So may I please become the top mod in /s/AntiPsychiatry? Thank you.

The Deceptive Nature Of Synchronicities Sheds Light Into The Gangstalking Phenomenon, Schizophrenia, And Our Delusions! by kenye9 in Antipsychiatry

[–]Anticapitalist 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

A young woman I was treating had, at a critical moment, a dream in which she was given a golden scarab. While she was telling me this dream I sat with my back to the closed window. Suddenly I heard a noise behind me, like a gentle tapping. I turned round and saw a flying insect knocking against the window-pane from outside. I opened the window and caught the creature in the air as it flew in. It was the nearest analog to a golden scarab that one finds in our latitudes, a scarabaeid beetle, the common rose-chafer (Cetonia aurata), which contrary to its usual habits had evidently felt an urge to get into a dark room at this particular moment. I must admit that nothing like it ever happened to me before or since, and that the dream the patient has remained unique in my experience. – Jung (1973).

This is a great story. This makes me think, what if the 'patient' had said this to a psychiatrist? ie, had a described a story that sounds so rare that it sounds almost made up.

They might be name-called "delusional", depending on the empathy of the psychiatrist.

A significant amount of people who get cruelly name-called things like "paranoid delusional" are harmless friendly people discussing unusual events.

Discussing something unusual shouldn't be treated with an assumption of a flawed failed brain.

How about /s/Earth? I can start submitting my photos there. It seems to be abandoned/private.

I have a real fear of trying to build up subs with some AFK guy who comes back and takes the sub from me. This has happened on reddit with me.

So I would like you to please make me the top mod of s/earth and I then can invite the other guy (whoever abandoned it) to be the mod after me.

Why are there TWO subs for me irl -- "meirl" and "me_irl" by PikonParadox in meirl

[–]Anticapitalist 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well on reddit the two subs are quite different.

eg "meirl" is more literal (about you in real life) while "me_irl" has all sorts of meme circlejerks that don't seem very literal.

IMO it's not a big deal which one you go to.

Holy shit that is corrupt. It's like I used to think "the american government is 100% evil." Then every time I learn something new it's like "Now it's 110% evil."

It always gets more and more evil.

"Antidepressant Use More Than Doubles Risk of Suicide Attempts" by Anticapitalist in Psychiatry

[–]Anticapitalist[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

There's many studies linking "antidepressants" to increased suicide, more than just depression alone. But even if you don't believe these pills increase suicide what's obvious is they're not a good solution if they make a significant amount of people kill themselves.

Expert quotes: the "chemical imbalance" theory is false. by Anticapitalist in Antipsychiatry

[–]Anticapitalist[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The point of these quotes is not denying anyone's suffering. If you say you feel depression/anxiety/etc we accept that.

It's psychiatry denying your suffering:

ie, their belief is your flawed brain is the source of your suffering, as if you're imagining it.


Antipsychiatry is about accepting people's suffering is real and has a wide variety of causes, which are mostly oppression (eg exploitation, and socially caused suffering) but occasionally someone will have some form of brain damage as the cause. (eg could have been born with it.)

If you were born different, that's fine because different != a disease.

Everyone is different!

Antipsychiatry is understanding that when psychiatrists "diagnose" you they can't prove anything is biologically wrong with you. Or right with you. They don't know- they don't do lab tests. They're just making up stuff via "checklists" of behaviors which they just made up.

(And which they judge via their subjective opinions.)

ie, people have very real mental conditions and psychiatrists don't know what the causation is. They just blame your brain (the "individual defect view.") In other words, psychiatrists just push pills endlessly and very cruel "mental illness" labels.

Yeah we could probably get you added as the second mod,

Then I could spend years of work building up the sub just to have some random guy return and steal it.

(This happens all the time on reddit and it's terrible.)

Please help me- I only want to be the top mod.

And I have lots of info to add.

Should I message you in two weeks?
