Next thing y'all will be saying Breonna Taylor and Daniel Shaver deserved what they got and the police didn't do anything wrong there. My wild take is that most police are good, but we do have a problem where bad ones aren't held accountable to the standards they should be. End qualified immunity, end civil asset forfeiture, keep the budgets the same but put more money into training and less into military gear.

I see your point. Especially lately where people are protesting police shootings that were clearly justified for example. I feel like there's no more ground to cover though. The conversations on BLM, covid, etc have gone on long enough to have the same talking points over and over, I'm just ready to talk about something else while this madness burns out. Plus I don't believe these groups and events are as big and influential as people like to think.

Banned for that? Even if you did say something offensive, let me read it, let me think about it. I would understand banning someone for saying the n word or something (although I think people shouldn't let a single word have so much power) but what you posted is a great example of how curated they want everything to be. It's no wonder the site feels so corporate and artificial these days.

I agree that it's not the norm, but when it does happen I think it's atrocious enough to be worthy of protest (stuff like Breonna Taylor and Daniel Shaver, Duncan Lemp too). I wish it wasn't presented as a racial issue though, just an accountability issue.

I feel you on that for sure. I'm a hobbies guy, and hobbies often require stuff. There are a lot of things I only do a handful of times a season and it makes me wonder what's worth keeping around. I'm also big on self sufficiency, so there are even more things laying around that only get used a few times a year. When one of my good friends moved he had a tv, a couple bags of clothes, his phone, and an xbox-it was something to think about.

I still have most of my stuff, but generally it's everything I "need" and nothing I don't. I've gotten rid of a lot this year, and what I do have is quality, repairable, functional, etc-I don't have to think about upgrading or replacing things at least.

Heck yeah, welcome! I'm in my mid 20s and while it wasn't such a huge transformation and breaking point like yours, I simply started to realize that I am always trying to bite off more than I can chew. I wanted to dive into so many different hobbies, watch or read every single interesting thing that I came across, take on every project that I could, work out, be a student, work many hours, etc. I was half-assing every category in life and wasting time burnt out, all because I wanted to take on so many different things.

Half of those videos in my watch later playlist weren't that interesting, I don't need to tinker with my daily driver and my project car, I need to stop telling my friends that it has been a busy year, etc. I don't have it figured out yet, but I do think I'm heading in a better direction!

The gardening sounds great, I'd love to get into that when I have a place of my own. I've finally started getting consistent with the gym too, it has always been a phase that came and went every 3 or 4 months, I hope to keep nailing it and become my ideal self.

I'm kinda weird in that I like seeing the protests (except for the accompanying people in the middle of the road, and vandalism) and I hope they move us forward, but at the same time I don't like that it has been made into such a racial issue. If they would just leave it at "the thugs that broke into Breonna Taylor's home haven't been charged, cops should fear consequences of suffocating people like George Floyd, stop shooting shoving and gassing peaceful protestors, and Daniel Shaver's murderers haven't seen any justice" that would be ideal.

Sometimes I feel the same hanging with people on the right when they start whining about the BLM protests, you can be skeptical about the numbers of police specifically targeting black people, but a lot of the people marching simply want justice and police accountability-nothing wrong with that.

Welcome. People seem easy going here, we must all have at least a bit in common to have migrated!

I was hoping he would talk more about what's in store for the future, but at least he is doing a little better

I've been thinking about that lately. I feel obligated to participate here, that part is easy. But I also feel obligated to not be silenced, to make my voice heard to those who disagree, even if it's a struggle. I feel like cutting ties but sometimes I wonder if it's the smart thing.

They've really gone off the deep end. I'd like to have 2 choices, I agree with them on some issues too. However they lost me at crazy levels of identity politcs and gun control.

I think simpleliving would be a good one that a lot of people would like, and it'd have some good thought-provoking content. Also there was a subreddit called stallmanwasright that focused on ethical and legal issues of modern tech, important discussions there as tech continues to change the world.

Other than that there'd be a lot of niche ones for things I'm into like certain car models or vintageaudio. Those won't get much participation but the first step is having a place to do it.

I'm actually quite surprised they found the guy. He looked pretty well disguised in the video!

Within a month or two I hope to recreate a couple subs that I'm missing from reddit. It's a start!

None of my subs got banned by Turnaround in Introductions

Moderatepolitics was great, I haven't looked around yet but I hope to see something like it here in time
