Socialists and Fascists Have Always Been Kissing Cousins by useless_aether in Freedom

If Socialists and Fascists are kissing cousins, then Capitalists and Fascists are newlywed siblings who don't mind fornicating in public.
Socialism is (supposed to be) a bottom-up democratic approach to industrial production, which is antithetical to top-down nature of fascism and capitalism.
It's easy to overlook the fact that Dubya's grandfather Prescott Bush (and Henry Ford, and many other American capitalists) literally bankrolled the Nazis war industry.
Former Hillary Adviser: "Hillary will run again. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career.” by useless_aether in NotTheOnion
I'm guessing that Clinton still has 571 pledged super-delegates, so she's well positioned to sabotage democracy for the U.S. again.

What about the Russian hacking!? The Russians made John Podesta type pedophile e-mails, and purchase pedophile art.
The Russians then murdered Seth Rich for giving the DNC e-mails to Wikileaks.
Ted Was Right, Wasn't He? by useless_aether in quotes

Ted was a victim of MK Ultra experiments, so he's understandably opposed to the doctrinal system.
JP is largely misunderstood. He makes statements that appear incendiary but have significant merit if considered carefully. The statements are generally gender and social rights/justice issues. He loses people when they ask him if he thinks a given situation is ok, and he generally responds, "I don't know", because no one has adequately researched the specifics of the topic being discussed (plus pinpointing causality in social sciences is dubious, at best). Public opinion on most social topics is largely based on unfounded social norms and sociological assumptions. This is the general thesis of 95% of his arguments.
For example: If women wear makeup at work, can that create an unintended/unforseen sexual/social message???
Imagine if women quit wearing makeup to work, or all men started wearing makeup, etc. Makeup or not, the workplace social environment will be impacted. The status quo is currently affecting society in ways that are not fully understood.
Then there's the non-gender pronoun debate, which is a SJW hot button issue that some use to attack him. The right supports him as, an enemy of my enemy; he's Canadian though and his views are to the left of most of theirs. You do have to listen carefully, because he doesn't state his personal views very often.

You could have an outfit with sharp buttons, and you make new button holes each time.
It would be interesting to evaluate whether the material is experiencing elastic deformation, so it will continue to recover. As opposed to a partial plastic deformation, which will eventually fatigue the bonds and recover less and less.
Wow. A material that heals when rubbed? Sounds like a future condom candidate.

Liquid water molecules absorb lighter in the microwave bandwidth, which excites the water molecules as their energy is increased. Most molecules are functionally transparent to microwaves, so they are unaffected.
However, there's no way of knowing for sure whether some rare (but crucial) molecules in in our nervous system or endocrine system, and inadvertantly wreck millions of developing children.

Fuel shortages in the country with the worlds largest proven oil reserves.
Venezuela's known reserves tripled in volume in 2010..
Venezuela's known reserves equal the combined known volumes of both Iraq, and Iran. If the Venezuelan government does fall to US pressure, then the Venezuelan citizens will likely never get their country back.

No system is 100% perfect for all situations. The Saidit voting system is non-punative.
