Why is Prostitution still illegal? by sawboss in videos

It is still illegal for the same reason that ALL victimless crimes are illegal. So the prison industrial complex (like that self-righteous female prosecutor) can make bank at the expense of everyone else.

Some of y’all still use reddit. What is your reason for not fully switching? by OC_Rookie in AskSaidIt

I don't think there is any problem re-posting from anywhere as long as it is an item of interest. As /r continues to self-destruct and collapse into their corporate cesspool of censorship, more people will seek alternatives. With more interesting content, there will be more participants, and when the participants can speak freely without fear of being summarily and arbitrarily silenced, there will be more discussion. Choice is good.

Content... There is still useful info on /r, it is just harder to find before it is censored, and it's not worth getting banned or censored by commenting on it.

The evidence supports your statement. If the good outweighed the bad we would not be looking at the destruction of the environment on a global scale, the fastest rate of species going extinct in history, and the concentration of wealth and resources in the hands of so few. Anyone who cannot see what is going on is living in some sort of bubble that excludes reality.

The plutocracy has used "divide and conquer" successfully for thousands of years. Hopefully more people will begin to realize we have more in common with each other, than with our overlords.
