I don’t know many that are exactly like PayPal but there’s:

  • Skrill
  • Venmo (Run by PayPal)
  • Payoneer
  • CashApp
  • Zelle (only available through a bank account)
  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay
  • Stripe
  • Amazon Pay
  • Shopify
  • WePay
  • Dwolla

I don’t think anyone has the ubiquity and robustness of paypal, though.

I don’t know that the person you were replying to was necessarily referencing Dickinson’s poem. But it seemed apropos.

Dickinson was neither happy nor homeless in her life so your conclusion is ignorantly asinine and shows a keen inability to understand art. And though she was not famous in her time, today she is recognized as one of the great American poets. But I’m sure BLM will find a statue of her somewhere to tear down since she was white. Perhaps you could help them?

Some of my more distant “friends” it was social media. But the rest were closer to IRL. But there’s no doubt that both social media and access to computers and the internet intensified so much of this.

Very ignorant people were exposed to ideas they had no previous notion of way too fast so they have acted out of fear and want to kill everything they disagree because prior to this they lived in a bubble.

People who are in professions or social circles where appearances matter — spouse, 2.5 kids, dog, picket fence, late model SUV’s, soccer practice, piano recitals — will sacrifice a lot more to maintain those appearances than people who are Instagram millionaires.

Colloquially, I’d certainly agree this is true.

I had/have a friend who lived for a time in a state that caucuses, whereas both of us grew up in a states where your vote was ALWAYS private. She said it was incredibly traumatizing being in a room with friends, neighbors, colleagues, bosses, clients and having to make a political decision. But I dunno, maybe that’s a good inoculation?

I’m gonna have to go watch WKUK’s The Civil War on Drugs so I can laugh at all this.

That’s the thing. A lot of these people were never actually friends with me and I was happy to see them go. In many ways, I know that I somehow foolishly let them go. But the few real friends who I lost did hurt.

I had sort of a friend of a friend reach out and try to “bring me back” in a couple conversations because she “knew I was a good person,” which I appreciated. But the conversation turned into her saying things like, “I can’t believe my best friend ever slept with you. I can’t believe A ever slept with you.” Mind you, these are people of different racial backgrounds from me (as well as from each other) who I dated for a combined NINE years and have remained friends with until this past year.

My response was, “Oh, so you wanna sleep with me. That’s why we’re having this conversation.” We debated that one a little while. She never said no. Actually her brother in law is probably one of the few leftist I remain on good terms with, now that I think about it. But we never see each other.

This is what gets me. That’s why I do support the concept of “gender” and “sex” being different. The idea that “sex” and “gender” are the same is what leads to people thinking they need to go the medical route to express their gender.

Make up all the gender you want. Hell if I care. But there’s only three sexes — XX, XY, and XXY.

I was staying at an airbnb around the time of the outbreak of the protests/riots. In bed that night, I could hear the conversation of the couple in the home next door. During the day, I had heard their three young children playing in the yard. This is a neighborhood where their house must be worth at least $1M.

I first came into their conversation with her exclaiming, “This is the revolution! It’s finally here! Through the rest of their conversation, he continually White Knighted her insane jabberings which ended somewhere around her exclaiming in PURE hysterics, “They (conservatives) think we’re nothing but emotional hysterics!!”

I rolled my eyes and tried to sleep.

I’ve lost pretty much all my friends because of my refusal to not quiet my support of Trump over Joltin’ Joe. It’s my fault for having leftists as friends in the first place but that mainly reflects the places I’ve lived and circles I’ve been in most of my life.

I’ve been able to cozy up to a few newer more conservative ones but any of my liberal friends have very much distanced themselves if not outright cut me out. Even family.

And in every case I would say it’s been their choice. I’m somewhat strident, yes, but for them I’m always open to hear their point. The problem is they don’t have one that isn’t talking points they can’t answer a single question about. Literally their heads just explode. I’m fairly certain it was never quite like this.

And I mainly form my disagreement with them as question. (I’m far more friendly IRL than online, as I think most of us are.

The one question that got the most distance was, “Why is the son of liberal scion Robert F. Kennedy in the Trump administration?” Mind you, most of them know that I have always had a portrait of JFK hung prominently in my home. It was the one thing I inherited from my Cuban Jewish grandmother who was the descendent of both slaves and slave traders.

I’ve still yet to get any sort of attempted response to that question.

The sad fact is they’ve always been this way. Now they just have more power to show their true colors.

I grew up in an extreme leftist family. There used to be a mock up day care at the National Organization for Women meetings my mom would go to. She at least had the brains to stop dragging us to the meetings when a few people in the crowded shouted they should kill all the kids.

One day much later my mother asked to no one in particular but in all seriousness when it was going to be her turn to have money. I once had a friend who would routinely tell me to kill myself once she found out I didn’t fully adhere to her radical views.

Many of these people aren’t simply socialists (as they all claim to be) or even communists but Stalinists who want to see blood on the street. They are angry jealous people. Once I decided to walk away, I instantly became vastly happier and more peaceful with my life.

I’ve seen friends who were once balanced relatively happy people become so much more bitter and grotesque the more they’ve become wrapped up in their righteousness.

Yes. And that's an extremely simplistic view of the world, which is generally put forward by socialists who think people can solve government can solve problems.

Right now, you're reminding me of Osho's people who came to America thinking the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were things that were enforced literally here in the States. You're describing "a" social contract, a truism of governance, however you're entirely missing the context of "the" social contract. That's why I said you don't understand english.

Your descriptor could be dated all the way back at least to the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, when the merchant class forced King John to codify their rights, lest they pull the plug on England's burgeoning commerce. (Or even further back, really. Probably to at least the Code of Hammurabi.) They achieved wealth separate from the Crown and used that wealth to enforce a codification of their rights.

"The" Social Contract did not come about until much later. It is liberalism's response to its murdering of God and a humanity ruled by its spiritual nature. Whereas (Western) people had been ruled by the fear of god or gods, debasement of those musings necessitated the installation of a new framework -- worship of government. As Locke asserts, no longer was family tied by nature but by social agreement. The very formation of "the" social contract is socialist in nature.

So when you go around talking about "the" social contract, it means one thing in your head but its context is entirely different to most people's understanding. And herein lies the true difference between modern Liberals and Conservatives. Liberals look at society and see a social contract. They look at government and see something that rules them at their own will and for their own good. Conservatives look at "government" and simply see people. Fallible people who must be used to one's own ends or simply worked around. Liberals still live in a pre-1848 world where they think government will one day bring them a utopia. They keep thinking -- just a couple more laws. Over that next hill. We just need to perfect the government, the contract we have with each other, and then we'll have legislated peace on Earth and free healthcare for all.

Modern American Libertarians and most Conservatives as well as most Eastern religions remain much more rooted in the spiritual nature of humanity so they retain an intrinsic trust not just in one another but also in their own experience. Liberalism's attempt to rule by intellectualism has died and CHOP is the proof. That's why I say, there is no longer "The" Social Contract.

I think that's a misinterpretation of what "the social contract" means. It's not a matter of guilt, nor a matter of helping.

Conceptually speaking, it's literally where Rousseau and Locke got the idea. They just flipped it on its head.

The concept of a social contract was popularized by Jean-Jacques Rousseau prior to the American Revolutionary War. In many ways, it gave moral standing to the creation of the United States of America, as well as the Jacobin terror and French Revolution that followed. The European socialist uprisings of 1848 also owe many of their intellectual underpinnings to Rousseau's social contract concept which holds that the rules of the state are binding only to the extent that they express the will of the governed. Abraham Lincoln echoed many of these concepts as he campaigned to end slavery and hold the Union together.

However, there are many criticisms to this concept, not the least of which being that it boils down to little more than a truism. One could argue that it's based off another concept of French intellectualism, "noblesse oblige" or the obligation of the noble class to be generous toward those of lesser means. In this way, it is both condescending and demeaning. While it sounds pretty to girls and liberals, the fact is that it holds little weight in the real world. One need look no further than to the violent uprisings that swore by it to see that it is force and wealth that enforce these "freedoms" and not the other way around.

Especially when looked at in light of millennia of Japanese, Chinese, and Indian political, cultural, and religious concepts, Rousseau's concepts are child-like, barely a blip on the radar of human achievements. Rousseau is a hope that leaves for wanting. Even Thoreau's Civil Disobedience -- which espouses the need to prioritize conscience over law -- has a more tangible grasp on the realities of governance and the individual.

In fact, Rousseau's "social contract" is often used to enforce government control, whereas Thoreau's "Resistance to Civil Government" (1849) is truly a revolutionary concept founded on freedom. What is most interesting, though, is that Rousseau is of a time when authors wrote of Utopias. Nearly all conceptual literature prior to the revolutions of 1848 described Utopias (such as Sir Thomas More), theoretical places where people made rules that were fair and just and kept society happy. Following 1848, literature turned and wrote almost exclusively of distopias -- places where the rules of humans failed and the world felt more chaotic. It's quite certain that Rousseau's concept of a social contract held little real sway after this point in history, though some still cling to it as backing for their socialist tendencies.

To say this all another way, I'll quote Wittgenstein's "On Certainty," paragraph 315, in part:

It would be as if someone were looking for some object in a room; he opens a drawer and doesn't see it there; then he closes it again, waits, and opens it once more to see if perhaps it isn't there now, and keeps on like that. He has not learned to look for things. And in the same way this pupil has not learned how to ask questions.

You do a great job on the technical side of things with this website and I truly appreciate that. But I'll walk up and down your little "pyramid" all day.
