Nice, I've been looking forward to this and hoping they don't fuck it up. Top Gun was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I kinda wanted Ridley Scott to direct it though, since Tony did the original.

In The Last 23 Years, Mass Shootings Have Killed 169 People. There Have Been 224 Shooting Deaths Just This Year In Highly Gun Regulated Chicago by HongKongPhooey in conspiracy

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

That's roughly 7 people per year. To put that in perspective, around 150 people per year are killed by coconuts, champagne corks kill 20 per year and falling vending machines kill 2 per year. The media love to glorify the dramatic story over the mundane.

Exactly, these 'assault rifle' bans are just posturing for optics, it would have no measurable effect on shooting deaths, but would severely hinder the ability to form an effective militia against a tyrannical government as the founders intended.

Significantly weaken the 2nd Amendment, while preventing a statistically negligible amount of deaths, great idea

b. Did something to piss off magnora7 and he removed the sub from s/all visibility

How is this a strawman? OP explicity states that any sex for pleasure and not reproduction is deviant, and comparable to a mental illness like an eating disorder. This would apply to anyone even practicing birth control. Wore a condom? Deviant. Birth control pills? You are mentally ill

How can it elude the top minds of academia that the purpose of sex is reproduction?

Any behavior that contradicts this purpose is logically dysfunctional, akin to eating for pleasure alone.

I am directly addressing the claim in question here - that there is something inherently wrong with having sex when reproduction isn't the motivation for it. I don't see how you can say this is strawman fallacy

This was not my interpretation of the Communist Manifesto, but maybe it is more insidious than I realized.

it says over and over that the goal is to destroy the class system, so there is only one class. But again, how does someone take from the individual, if they are not above the individual.

The chinese wealthy, are not bourgeoisie, because all of their wealth is controlled by the state.

My understanding was the Marx and Engels were working under the assumption of a democratic state. The State being nothing more than a majority consensus. The wealthy capitalists would have their wealth confiscated by 'the people', the people would run the means of production through democracy, and the goods would be evenly distributed

My objection to even this sort of arrangement is that you haven't solved the problem of Capitalist Alienation at all. Anyone in the minority of this theoretical nation would be operating under the same alienated condition as if the means of production were owned by capitalists, and people are bound to be in the minority on some issues

To me, communism is simply the principle of democracy applied to the economic sphere. The theory anyway, as we know in practice this is not how it ends up working

The communist manifesto literally explains a new industrial system, production and a workforce that is run by the state.

Yes

The state is made up of people at the top, who communism does not apply to.

I understand that this is the way it plays out, but it also isn't exactly what Marx had in mind in the Communist Manifesto or Das Kapital. Not that I personally would want any sort of centralized control of the economy.

Also, not that I think it would work much better, but much ignored Kropotkin advocated for a very decentralized communism, which opens up a different set of problems

In communism, the people own nothing, and the authoritarian state run everything as capitalists with free labour. This is literally communism.

Oh I don't doubt that's where we are headed, just that the current state of China with private billionaires like Jack Ma does not fit the traditional arrangement implied by Communism. It sounds more like Mussolini's Italy

Maoists were put into power by jews. It is communism. How they got the idea of communism and how to control the masses all came from jews.

Sure, but today's CCP ruled China isn't actually communist at all. The people/state do not own the means of production. Corporations are privately held and the economy isn't planned, its controlled by market forces. This is capitalism, but with a very authoritarian government. It resembles Fascism more than Communism

Don't anger the Rockefellers or they will shut you down like anyone else thinking of using steam. Buy gasoline at Seven Bucks per gallon but water is a bit less. .

I mean, I hate to be a skeptic about a Rockefeller conspiracy...but with some back of the napkin math, this doesnt seem to add up. The issue isnt the water, its the wood/coal or other fuel that you have to burn to heat the water to create the steam. Water has an EXTREMELY high specific heat capacity (which is why we use it as engine coolant, the other part is jsut antifreeze and keeps the lines from rusting which pure water will do), and this is not an efficient energy process.

Steam IS used in power generation, just not how most people think. The natural gas burning engines that the power plants use create a bunch of waste heat like any engine, and they trap this heat and use it to make steam to increase the thermal efficiency from the base Carnot cycle (this would be too large and heavy to fit on a car), but a pure steam engine doesn't seem like it can possibly be an efficient or realistic modern transportation solution. Unless you know something I don't, this doesn't seem likely to be a conspiracy.

Chipit is an astroturf, but your broad characterization is unfair. I post many of Caitlin's articles because they are good, and she is one of the few journalists that has an ideology anything close to mine. I also posted an article about the Uyghurs, not because I am right-wing or want a war with China, but because China has a long history of history human rights abuses of a similar vein, and I have very little difficulty believing they would do something like this. I don't like the CCP, or Putin, or Zelensky, or NATO, or my own US government and regularly post articles about the corruption of any and all of them.

How can something be fed to you externally, especially forcefully, if there is no simulation?

Again, I don't think I follow. It sounds like you have assumptions about the nature of what a non-simulated reality must necessarily be like. Are you suggesting we would not need caloric sustenance for energy and exert some sort of sovereign control that prevents force/coercion in a non-simulated reality? If so, what is it about the nature of non-simulated reality that makes this so? I like the sound of that, but what makes you think that this is the case?

You seem very strong in your convictions about this, I just want to understand what makes you so confident in your beliefs about the nature of reality

I like the idea of hydrogen, but I've heard it's hard to store long term because the size of a hydrogen atom is so small (literally the smallest) that it leaks through containers more readily than any other gas.

You are correct that there are infrastructure issues...Hydrogen also likes to be a gas which takes up a massive volume, and makes it hard to 'pump'. It needs to be stored as a liquid with massive cooling and/or pressurization in terms of creating the infrastructure to completely replace gasoline. I will grant that this is a substantial enough issue that it would take too long to go straight to hydrogen cars from gasoline. Electric is likely something we have to make due with for now, but I don't think it is ideal. Hydrogen adoption at the grid level is probably the best way to begin. Use the excess electricity produced by solar and wind to perform electrolysis, and use the hydrogen for off cycles

Again, I tend to agree with you, I think there is a high probability we do in fact live in a simulation, but I don't think I completely follow what you are saying here.

Whether we are in base reality or not they are all simulations.

Ok, but even if we are in a simulation, this infers the existence of a non-simulated reality somewhere right? Or else there could be no simulation.

Otherwise nothing objective and forced upon us could exist.

So now you are talking about a non-simulated reality, one you say must have certain conditions. So I think I am not understanding what you mean by 'they are all simulations', because this is what I meant by a 'base reality' - one which is not a simulation but that the simulations may exist in (in which case the problem of where this 'real' non-objective reality came from would still be present - it is something and can't have come from nothing).

I am also very curious about this non-objectivity requirement. What is it about 'reality' that means it must have this property? The 'base reality' being completely subjective might be the case, quantum physics shows us some interesting properties about observers and our current reality, but you are very adamant about this, and I don't think I completely understand your rationale here, or how you are getting from A to Z
