This is completely idiotic framing that has led the US public to support so many disastrous conflicts (pretty much all of them). Appealing to good vs evil thinking is such a super-hero trope that I cannot believe adults still cling to this worldview. Fascist horde of rapist orcs? Give me a break.

If Hersh's story is true, how would you have handled its dissemination? Because I'm wagering that you won't have a clue. Hersh's article had lots of details which can only be known if Hersh spent a lot of time+energy in fabricating it or he truly was contacted by an inside informant.

Relax Mr. State Dept. Take your pedantic point back to Reddit for your circle jerk session. These demonstrators, whether they're credible people or not, did something important which is to call out AOC for her lack of principled foreign policy stance. The worse part, she never publicly addressed her vote.

I don't understand your point. You either agree or disagree with the "all the chips are in play" statement. If America does something else after, then clearly not all chips are in play. I disagree with the statement that America is out of moves to make, but I agree with the sentiment that it seems like America has played all of its low hanging fruit moves.

I think the "all the chips on the table" statement is to characterize the entirety of US decisions regarding Ukraine since 2014. Not just the gold ban...

IQ arguably measures one type of intelligence. It's a completely meaningless measure of overall ability. Lastly, you don't even distinguish between inherited ability and learned ability. Hard to say how much of one's "intelligence" was hereditary and how much was due to nurture. There's a lot of hidden assumptions in your original post that you don't address at all because I think you lack the will/ability to think deeply about this topic.

Thanks for the reply! This was a good intro, but I'm still curious. I'm still not sure how Saidit resolved the vote rigging issue other than preventing vote cancellation. How does it prevent artificial "upvotes"??

New to this site and am not technically savvy. Can someone explain what problems are plaguing reddit and/or voat what saidit is doing differently in those departments? Cheers!
