Americans Shouldn’t Have to Drive, but the Law Insists on It (Vigte: I was skeptical of the article but yeah, kind of seems like conspiracy to me) by Vigte in conspiracy

[–]Drewski 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree that there was / is a conspiracy against public transportation, manufactured by lobbyists for big oil, automobile manufacturers, and other related industries. And with the petrodollar being a primary means of financial control, it stands to reason that they'd encourage consumption.

The author criticizes the "sprawling landscape that zoning has created" and the basic need for an automobile living in America. I think he's neglected the basic fact that living in a rural area is going to require transportation, which really can't be provided by public transit.

Another important thing he didn't mention is the freedom and autonomy provided by the personal vehicle. With public transit you are fixed to a set timetable and route, and there may be areas that you can't get to. Having a car lets you go wherever you want whenever you want (well, as long as there's a road), something we often take for granted. I think in the future there will be a big push to move people to self-driving cars, initially through insurance hikes and propaganda ("who would be selfish enough to risk other people's lives with a manually driven car?") which will attempt to take away that autonomy.

The eviction crisis is starting to look a lot like the subprime mortgage crisis by magnora7 in collapse

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

The authors cite several earlier local studies that demonstrate the phenomenon. Researchers in Baltimore, Cleveland and Dallas “found that some landlords viewed the additional revenue from late fees, enforced by the threat of an eviction filing, as a supplemental source of funding in addition to the regular rent roll.

I know there are predatory landlords out there, but in my personal experience most are just regular people trying to earn an honest living and support their families. If you're a good tenant, most will work with you if you're late on your rent a couple times. I seriously doubt that many are hoping for their tenants to be late so they can rack up extra late fees or whatever. I really don't understand this trend of demonizing landlords who are providing a vital service and are mostly decent people.

I tried Durian for the first time in Thailand. Definitely a very strong smell but I actually liked it, I recommend giving it a shot if you get the chance.

There are two types of citizens here: Comrades, and Czars. The only difference is that czars have been voted on to execute system maintenance, and have higher security level access. It does not mean their opinion or speech is more important than anyone else's.

Bahahahahaha!

Any citizen can cite another citizen for violation of these rules. For a violation to be logged, a vote of no shorter than 4 hours will be called. The maximum duration shall be 24 hours. Voting length is determined by the citer.

To the gulag with you!

Trump abused executive authority to infringe on the second amendment. Just goes to show how partisan people's thinking is, if it had been Obama there would have been an outrage.

Mad props for her refusing to testify, even after all she's been through.

I'd like to see her on the debate stage, bringing topics like anti-interventionism and protection for whistleblowers like Assange to the public discourse.

Physical Removal is a concept which was coined by Libertarian / Anarcho-capitalist Hans-Hermann Hoppe in which certain people would need to be expelled to have a Libertarian society. I don't agree with many of Hoppe's claims, but I think do that open discussion should be allowed to root out bad ideas or philosophies.

As for promoting actual violence, AFAIK the helicopter / Pinochet memes are meant as a joke (even if they are in bad taste) and I don't think banning the sub without any warnings or proper explanation sets a good precedent.

True, but in the context of American politics they're intentionally misleading and divisive.

Yep, it's the ad blocker. Should have thought to try that to begin with. I will try to identify which filter list is causing the issue and see if the maintainer can add a workaround.

They may delete the photo, but they aren't deleting the unique recognition data they obtain from it. Just the usual deceptive semantics from FB.
