as much as i sympathize and identify with the working class, i must say reality is going the other way. machines are replacing even white collar jobs and soon almost all the jobs and computers are getting smarter every day. the best way is to have some sorta universal basic income in place at least in the developed nations. but this is perhaps the biggest challenge to humanitarianism since its beginning.

there is an idea in thinking (or philosophy if you will) called the hill of foolishness. one has to go up the hill (gaining false confidence) and then down (realizing there's still much more to learn but is much better than the commoner in this domain). scientific evidence back this up too (see the various reinforcement learning curves that spikes and before reaching the goal).
also, dominic cunnings is a very smart guy.

perhaps the best thing can be said about mao is that he did not intend to do 99% of it. i think he's below average when it comes to math and natural science and too gifted in social sciences, and he lets his ego get in his way. he scored 60 out of 100 in math in a normal school after studying very hard to review the subject, but wrote an essay that impressed his teacher (decent intellectual in those times) so much that he got 105 out of 100 points. his philosophy comes from wang yangming, a revered intellectual in china and japan.(yet wang yangming proposed something much like reinforcement learning that continues to winnow the good from the bad in a poem of his, a humble gradualism arrogantly overlooked in mao's later years.) he believes that the human will alone can dominate natural rules, which led to a period of great stagnation in post-war china. towards the end of cultural revolution, he expressed regret toward outing more practical officials in the ccp. onto the attitude toward mao in china. the public discourse is not in favor of him, to say the least. his true believers are quite weak and far away from mainstream discourse these days. (some revival i'd say, some chauvinism out of a richer china, which is not good.) old people still remember him as a good leader or a horrible leader, depending on their status during his years. (younger generation don't bother cause they have anime, comics, and games other than way too much work.) mao is above all a poetic ruler, if you examine his face you'd find feminine traits. his blind romanticism fueled by ego, however, did great harm to china when it comes to science and running the country. one can argue that all communist regimes (ussr, mao's china, etc.) are good at coming to power but are not good at constructing infrastructures and running economies and feeding its subjects compared to other ideologies and societies.

Canadian Mayor stand by not flying the pride flag by calmbluejay in SocialMedia
the wealthier a nation gets the more birthrate drops. i do agree with that. look at western europe and japan and their r values (especially japan, it's like 1.1 or something, one needs that to be approx. 2 to sustain a population). china's talking about whether it'd become the second japan demographically (or in other ways). and i don't think hetero people are ever going to be replaced by homosexual people and die childless. if that is the case then one gotta ask why those gay people go against their will to marry people opposite of their gender. and also heterosexual dudes should man up and show those girls that you are going to love them like gay man never could and provide them a good life to raise great man for the next generation. people can tell if you really do love them and really do want to have sex with them. they're gonna choose you if you really want them bad enough.

"DON'T BE A SHEEP!" Sheriff Tells Citizens To Ignore WA State Dictator Inslee's Face Masks Order by Drewski in videos
wolves form packs, highly planned and highly effective hunting tactics. for example, in wintertime they'd wait until dawn to hunt big goats, because the goats' bladders are all full and it's hard for them to run up the mountains. the wolves who get the meat have to wake up to howling winds when goats sleep in their sweet dreams behind the mountain.
i think there are civilized wolves in this world but at this point a lot of those cultures are lost.

Trump Announces HUNDREDS Of Arrests Over Destroying Statues As Riots Continue In Several Cities by Tarrock in politics
those who wield the sword
if you really dig into demographics and birth rates, lgbt population is not the reason for low birth rate, ever. it's really the cost to raise the offspring and give the offspring a good life that curb the birth rate for the middle class for the last couple of decades, and this trend is growing across the world. take china, who just opened their second-child policy. in the first year, they had a little over a million new babies due to this policy, iirc, but not more than 2 million. because the cost of sending a kid to a good college is too high in the targeted middle-class population. the pride flag is always something more political, if you are willing to look and think.
but really, take the example of alan turing, who's gay, invented the first computer and named it after his crush (boy) in high school and managed to save 2 million people (see wiki). one must be careful to say lgbt is the true cause of a decreasing population.

Why ‘Uncomfortable’ Books Like ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ Are Precisely the Ones Kids Should be Reading by SierraKiloBravo in books
i'm not sure if its ending supports 'the idea that the US is a country that has independent courts'. in fact, i think it's quite the contrary that it's exposing. reading this as a kid made me realize there are injustices in the world and it's not always what it seems like. it's a tender novel in a first person perspective, through young harper's eyes. and many years later i still have trouble reading much more complex books that are more real like gravity's rainbow, so i think it's a pretty good start. honestly, it did not shift my ideology that much, if at all.

'A possible violation': Mexico's biggest telecommunications operator is blocking Tor network by Drewski in Internet
i'm no tor expert but i think the actual effect of this depends on the topology and the strength of government cyber control. i've heard Russia's internet is hard to censor as there's no single point failure from other countries' physical layer but China's is easier as there is something like a single point of failure to the outside world. so i guess it would come down to: how visible is a tor exit node and how much mexico is willing to cut off its physical layer.
JusticeServed - Any users criticizing the BLM movement, Antifa, or the current protests against police brutality will be immediately and permanently banned. by [deleted] in MeanwhileOnReddit
the result of the civil rights movement and the rise of other races and cultures from the end of the colonization period forbid a rightwing path in America at this point. this goes back to the cause of the allied power in WWII. various other reasons, perhaps not as permanent, forbid a centrist path in America at this point. this is a great loss, imho. thus the only option left.
i would not go so far as that. these things are complicated yet not sufficient understanding has been spread across a great enough population. i find the theory of ethics very hard, after i took an intro course in ethics in college. for an idea to be widely accepted, especially a social one, takes decades and even centuries to sort out. in fact, you don't need to go into the social sciences to find an example. perhaps due to the AI winters, a very classic and powerful idea in the field of AI, support vector machine, took three to four decades to reach a common researcher's ear from its birth as this sorta footnote on a Russian research paper. now it's taught as a standard tool at an introductory level.
