A Question For Leftists: Why Are All The Evil People On Your Side? by Drewski in politics

[–]blowininthewind 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

well, revolution always starts with the mind. eric hoffer has this book called 'true believer' in which he analyzed this in detail. to a sophisticated politician, arms are just means to an end and the end is oftentimes a belief or an ideology. this has nothing to do with the level of technology and has everything to do with human nature. for a more dramatic story, see' brexit: the uncivil war'.

now, i believe one needs to make up his own mind after presented with a complete spectrum of information.

i have no idea what these 'true creators' and 'embryonic stages' came from. is this your own theory or could you provide a source? is this more from a philosophy or from 4chan (based on the attitude toward big corporations there) or something in between?

i would not call those projects 'manipulating minds' though. if you were to spend this much time talking about this subject with me you must care about this to a reasonable degree (or else quit this and do other things). backing things up has no effect on other people other than telling them 'look, those things also exists'. and this access to information, to both sides of the isle, so to speak, is quite important to a healthy mind imho. we make decisions based on what we see, and if that can be manipulated we're pretty much done for. in that case, no matter how sane we are we are but puppets to the sum of sources of our information.

i have no idea of a good part of what you said, honestly, like what 'embryonic children' means. please be clear.

there are a few revolutions that were good throughout history you know, like the british one or the chinese one that got rid of the emperor. but there are too few of them and afaik the british one was really the only one that has a positive and lasting benefit. and then there are independence wars and uprisings, america, india, etc. but in that case the enemy is a foreign one not a domestic one. in other words you do not have to live with them once the thing is over. so if you were to trade social change by investing in revolution per say, it's not a very good investment when you look at the historic data. or else you're looking for a different word.

this is quite dangerous trend, eric hoffer has this book called true believer describing this. i mean, revolution is really the costliest way to achieve one's political goals but blunt disagreement to the other side without any kinda tolerance to a more centrist view is driving society towards revolution. i would go so far to say that biden does a lot of right things in that regards of keeping that kinda pressure low but i think there are still very fundamental issues to the solved. oh well that's my two cents what do i know.

and my youtube comment under sydney watson was just removed. comment: once upon a time, trans ppl are terribly prosecuted, along with other gender minorities. then they thought of something: if we get political, no one will stop us! pretty much like the chinese peasants who fueled the cultural revolution after making china communist. if there's a power vaccum, the oppressed fills it in. this logic, once started, is irresistable, unstoppable. so it's gonna see-saw for a while i think, until the new social norm includes gender minorities. of course fake gandis are gonna pop up every now and then and say: an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. i'm sure if gandi is at odds with tougher enemies, he's gonna go blind in an instant. and well, there are many of those. it's pretty much like that episode in south park where randy helped gerald jerk off for once at their party, shitting his pants for being thought of as gay, while being totally oblivious when tanks are going to blow their house to pieces. video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3CsrPaIv5A this is not even conservative.

People who appreciate traditionalism in society, how do we know we're not the actually the bad ones? by PencilPusher55 in AskSaidIt

[–]blowininthewind 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

i'm pretty sure if you read paul graham's articles on censorship (hacker & painter, wiki page for 'graham's hierarchy of censorship', etc) it'd be more clear.

i think there's always been a brain-washing element of it. for example alan turing saved millions of lives by breaking the enigma and thereby ended wwii years earlier, but was chemically castrated for being gay, which led to his tragic suicide. had he pursue his interest later in life, 'computational biology', we will probably have more ethnic AI and gain priceless insights in the field. so...that's kinda brain-washing, washing away very useful human brains. paul graham is one of those few souls seeing through these everlasting brain-washing schemes so clearly. (i once thought aaron schwartz and noam chomsky did..but i'm sure they have unique pieces to this puzzle.)

so...if you're gay and witnessed all these, you know fag drags (that is one word, nsfl), along with tchaikovski and numerous other talented gay people suffer just for being gay, what would you do? i for one thing would get political. what's that song? 'we can break their haughty power gain our freedom when we learn, that the union makes us strong!' right. all lesbians and gays who used to feel nothing toward each other are brought together by...you guessed it, suffering, oppression ,etc. interestingly, christiantiy started in a simiar way. it did it with a cross, that is.

but what's the best way to break a haughty power? right, by another haughty power. don't talk to me about ghandi, look at chairman mao. that's how yout roll, that's how you do things. and by the way, when you're up against ussr, you need a moral highground. so you widen the sufferage and write the powell memorendum. you know, smart moves.

so here we are today. i for one thing is a much bigger fan for all kinds of love beyond the nuclear family than a nuclear war.

edit: today pope francis must feel the same partly due to the guilt he felt to his argentenian christian brothers who were murdered in the seventies, trauma in that kinda atmosphere does make people liberal. old age makes people brave indeed.

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.

  • now onto a higher level of error in your reply. again, no offense and thanks for the reply. yet i'm not sure one can conclude that 'the west lost free speech when it lost its conventions in the stupid 1960s.' the internet emerged at a civilian level and a global scale at around the 90s and raised a large group of free-thinking people along the way, especially in the third world. there are backlashes such as the chinese censorship, but even in that case china is much more free than the 90s due to the internet.

although i am quite disgusted by that idea as i see beauty in diversity, but i am more disgusted by the censorship of it. the correct way is to have an open conversation, but it seems centrists are less and less each day.

TIL the founder of the Chinese Communist Party, Mao Zedong, was responsible for the deaths of over 65 million people, making him the most prolific killer of the 20th century. by aThievingStableboy in TIL

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.

when you want to recover ecology of a mountain, first you plant certain types of trees that live for ten or twenty years that are easy to survive on next to nothing, and then you bring in more diverse species of plants. i think something similar applies to smaller forums like saidit.

Within 1 hour, Reddit banned 2000 subs-almost all right wing, Twitch banned Trump's account, Youtube banned Stefan Molyneux, Twitter banned Sidney Powell, and the MSM all had long ass articles ready to go to praise it.

trump asked the magical mirror: 'mirror, mirror, if i don't wear a mask to the rushmore rally, will my chance of winning increase?' mirror: 'yeah, it should increase by 3%' trump: 'okay i wouldn't wear a mask and post as a strong, Godlike leader who cannot get infected.' mirror, after talking to trump: 'jeez, his chance of winning by doing that is now at 40% and otherwise it's 37%. i realized brexit, i realized trump's election, but why didn't i think more about trump as a person? did i get played by china? did i get played by destiny?' mirror, when no one's watching, not even himself: 'humans are dumb, slow, and forgetful. AI should take over the world.'

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.
