"Don't wear masks" is a psyop. by Aureus in conspiracy

[–]happysmash27 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thank you so much! I'm not sure I've ever up-insightfulled a post harder.

I was preparing to wear surgical masks on January 27th and watched everyone act like the virus was no big deal (except in niche communities) until it was, and the narrative that one suddenly shouldn't wear masks now that the government finally supports it has bothered me a lot for a while now (although as a libertarian, I still do not support making not wearing a mask illegal, as I believe it is a personal decision people should take voluntarily, not because the government said so, but because it is the right thing to do). It's good to see another perspective for once.

So they are literally doing the thing where they interpret everything white/black as race-related now? I thought that was a satire thing, but I guess nothing can be contained to satire or fiction in this crazy year of 2020 (and the same goes for the left, right, and everyone else too).

I support some of this, like making things non-gendered, but other replacements, like for whitelist/blacklist and for "grandfathered", seem pretty silly. I don't mind them, per say; I just think they are completely unnecessary, as I know no one offended by any of them, and therefore rather silly.

P is next on the LGBTQ agenda, and it always has been.

One of the original reasons I came to SaidIt was that I was heavily censored by the far left for saying that child pornography should not be banned (I had this view, at the age of 16, because I believe in freedom of speech, expression, and information, and didn't understand that there was such intense opposition to anything related to pedophiles or why anyone would have it, for reasons I still do not understand because people either didn't let me debate about it, or debated the wrong issue in a strawman argument). I have never seen anyone in the mainstream LGBTQ community (the part that likes to censor people) voice anything but heavy opposition to pedophilia. They don't even let people describe it as a sexuality most of the time. This is the intolerant left's opinion on pedophilia. They do not support it, at all. Otherwise, I wouldn't be banned from /r/Anarchism and a few other random subs too.

Add to that their recent announcements that we will no longer be able to filter by race. I have nothing against specific races, but I almost never feel an attraction to some, and forcing them to be visible to me won't make me more interested in them, just annoyed that I have to scroll through 50 people I don't want to bother with to see one I might when a filter USED to exist to skip that hassle.

That feature sounds annoying to me. How does it factor in mixed people? Many people these days don't fit neatly into racial categories, so I think it is better to judge looks created by race on the looks themselves, rather than race.

No seriously, tell me "asexual" person; when were you ever scared that your family and friends would disown you?

TBH, many gay people these days don't experience that either, or at least don't very strongly… or at least that's my experience being gay in Southern California, born in 2001 and coming out around age 14 or 15. Other places, like Saudi Arabia, are much worse though. It all depends on time and place, I think.

What could the government even do about this? I feel like now is a perfect time to invite people to other platforms, more than a time for government action with likely unintended side effects. SaidIt is finally full enough that I feel like I can browse here without immediately going back to Reddit, and Reddit is so stifling now that I can barely stand it anymore. As for other platforms, invite people you are subscribed to or who post good content to new ones like Bitchute, LBRY, and Mastodon. We can do this together.

Reddit's new TOS is essentially anti-White by riozoolander in debatealtright

[–]happysmash27 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Good point, as long as it's in a form that doesn't violate the NAP. I still heavily disapprove of it though, and prefer to avoid doing business with businesses that discriminate against people, especially if those people are costumers, which I would consider to be a borderline NAP violation since it may push out other businesses that would otherwise serve them while refusing to serve them themselves, specifically important in areas like food and healthcare. I'm not sure refusing to bake a cake for a gay marriage should be illegal, though, if I'm being honest, since no one is going to die from not eating cake with the right plastic figurines, and it is not impossible to bake one's own cake if no alternative is available. If they are discriminating, though, it is likely they would want to discriminate against me as well anyway, since I am also gay (or maybe bisexual), mixed black/white (and since we are not on Reddit, I can admit there can be discrimination against both depending on where one is), and on the autistic spectrum, which people sometimes discriminate against, but thankfully usually mildly in my experience, so perhaps I am doing them a favour by not doing business with them. Smart businesses will accept everyone and get more money, and hire whoever is most competent regardless of whatever group they are in and become more productive.

Edit: As for other forms of discrimination, violence like lynching is DEFINITELY a NAP violation, as well as police violence. I would consider those more of a separate issue from discrimination though, that is unfortunately sometimes caused by it.

Pretty much the same for me, though I've been here a while. Recently, though, Reddit has been getting especially oppressive, getting to just about the final straw, and SaidIt has been a bit more active, so I think this is a turning point in my online activity. I'm also left-wing with a pretty similar experience. Now I can't even say we should take back #AllLivesMatter to actually mean what it says and reduce division in the US. It's just too much. Censorship is everywhere, and it feels oppressive even in non-political subs now. I don't feel like there's anywhere nice on Reddit now, and have re-started making alternative versions of my favourite subs. Too bad I forgot about the 2-week timeout; maybe I would have started doing so in a different order if I remembered.

I was more talking about it in general. Someone presumably right-wing from 2b2t noticed what they saw as BLM things on my Twitter profile and criticised me for it (in a string of futile and silly insults). I've definitely noticed not being able to say "all lives matter" in left-leaning places. I can't even post this comment in /r/feedthebeast, and see [removed] everywhere that mentions BLM. It's getting so ridiculously oppressive I'm starting to go on SaidIt more, just because I cannot stand the oppressive vibe of Reddit. It's also partially why I've taken a liking to Minecraft anarchy servers lately; meaningless toxic cancer is a good break from oppressive political correctness, plus they aren't always as toxic as they seem, in actuality, when one digs under the surface level.

The haven doesn't die; it just keeps moving to new places.

When the big sites die, we move to new ones. Reddit is starting to break a bit… too many straws for me, so I'm going on Saidit more, and I think others will too. There are lots of free, open source, and usually decentralised alternatives to go to, and maybe the big services getting just about unbearable will make more people move to them.

White trans lives matter? Breaking the brains of the SJW mob. by Chipit in memes

All lives matter. Including black ones, and white ones too, and asian, and latin american, and LGBTQAI+, and non-human, and everyone else.

When I say "all lives matter", I really mean exactly what I say. The right will criticise me for being too left, but at the same time, much of the left will criticise me for being too right, because they think "all lives matter" is a "dog whistle" or whatever. Maybe it is for some people, but for me, it's not. When I say it, I mean it. All lives matter, and yours does too.

I really hate the political climate around this. I just want to accept everyone, especially the same people the left wants to accept. But… do you have to do it in such a divisive manner?? Just because we push for black rights, doesn't mean we must ignore all the others, and pushing for rights for everyone does not mean I want to ignore black rights either.

I'm mixed. I care about everyone. To the left and the right: Please stop the hatred. It doesn't help anyone at all =(´⦿ᨓ⦿`)= .

What should I care about climate change when the population chart looks like this? (inside) by illjoi in AskSaidIt

[–]happysmash27 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It is known that as countries get richer, they tend to have less kids. Maybe it is because they are too focused on work for them, or maybe just less worried about more of them dying.

You should care about climate change because it is a huge threat to everyone.

You didn't say why you are so worried about population growth, but a lot of the reasons (actually, all the reasons) I see to worry about it are intertwined with climate change. More people existing often means more people ruining the environment, exacerbating climate change, and both more people and climate change make it harder to feed everyone. I don't see the dichotomy here, but maybe you have different reasons to worry about it?

What do you dislike about president Trump? by Wrang1er in AskSaidIt

[–]happysmash27 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

  1. Orange man bad. Trump hate is spammed so much that it is hard to not go along with it when I don't have many reasons not to.

  2. He lies a lot, seems kind of ignorant, and seems to be pretty impulsive. These are the reasons I hear a lot, and are therefore the second ones I think of. The biggest real reason I dislike him here, that is not as knee-jerk, is the impulsiveness/aggressiveness. I have worried he may start a war. Ignorance also is not good, though TBH I haven't actually seen much about how much he actually knows about foreign policy. He messed up a bit on COVID-19, I think, but I don't think the president should be the primary source for that anyway, and prefer more non-governmental solutions.

  3. Another more real reason I dislike him, not influenced so much by the endless propaganda and groupthink: He is too xenophobic. I like immigrants, and Trump does not.

The DNC is hiring actors for the trump rally by [deleted] in politics

I heard this might be fake, although with no evidence on that side either.

Anyone can post a Craigslist ad.

Anyone can also say it's fake.

When I first saw this (on an image on Reddit), I actually assumed it was republicans hiring to make them look more popular than they actually are. Republicans are not very wide-spread in California…

Ninja edit: On second thought, upon actually viewing the link, this is a different ad than the one I saw on Reddit. The Reddit one was also from Tulsa, but didn't have the part about it being from the DNC, so I think it was a different ad from the same area.

Edit 2: I just found out that this Tulsa is in Oklahoma, not California. I am really misunderstanding everything about this, aren't I?

Alternative Math | Short Film by happysmash27 in videos

[–]happysmash27[S] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I wrote my more unique perspective on the video in a comment there:

The poor teacher doesn't know how to deal with contradicting ideas, in a way that technically makes both correct. There are a few things that could technically be argued about in math (IIRC), but we use one system, that is mostly consistent with itself, to make it simpler. The kid isn't "wrong" per say (bear with me here, because it is practically the same as being wrong), but just using the wrong number system. Just as 1+1 equals 2 in the decimal system, it equals 10 in binary and perhaps 11 in his system. Different number systems can coexist; numbers just need to be converted to be compatible.

Now, for why his system is completely impractical. Sure, in his system, 4 might be labelled "22", but as the teachers don't know it, it can't be easily built upon for more complicated math, like multiplication. Plus, it's bad for communication in general – how are people supposed to know, if asked to "22" apples, to give 4 in the decimal system instead of 22 in the decimal system? Plus, the kid's system is simply impractical. Isn't it easier to add 1280+1280 when one only needs to write 2560 instead of 12801280? Add the same number to itself again, and one gets 5120 vs 1280128012801280. See how this alternative system is impractical? It's just not worth it.

Sure, kid, you are "right". But we teach in decimal, while your answers are in a different system. We cannot easily teach you more useful things using this system. You could try developing it yourself, but you will quickly find that it is completely impractical for larger numbers and more advanced (and useful) calculations, as well as for communicating and even using measurement tools, which use decimal. You can use it, but you will find it much much easier to function in the world, and probably even for personal use, if you use decimal instead. Put some effort into learning it, and it will be much more efficient in the long run.

I could probably come up with an even more tactful argument, but don't feel like going through the effort given that I am writing for non-existant loonies who somehow think adding 2+2 gives 22, then, even when shown them combining into 4 markers, proceed to still think it's 22. But with the right tactics, I believe it is 100% possible to say why "22" as an answer doesn't work, while still technically not calling it "wrong", therefore avoiding all this fictional backlash. It's all a just question of systems and terminology.

Exposure to and seriously considering different views (and also asking lots of questions about why math is the way it is) has allowed me to technically justify even something as crazy as this. It's fun to defend the existence of and tactfully argue views no one in their right mind would seriously consider believing, and it's good practice in dealing with any views one encounters at all, real or fictional, in my opinion.

I love seeing things from the side no one ever considers, provided that it's not something people will get too angry at me for.

"Corona" refers to a very contagious (and very deadly, although mostly in older demographics) coronavirus, called COVID-19 or "the coronavirus" for short, that started around Wuhan in December 2019, spreading enough to be severely disruptive in China in January 2019 and turning into a full-blown pandemic by March 2020. A lot of things were locked down and quarantined because of it, in order to keep people safe, but this was delayed for so long that a lot of damage was already done by the time the measures where put in place. Now some places are apparently starting to open up again, even though we were warned more than a month ago that this short-term vigilance yet long-term abandonment would likely result in disaster. We can only hope that enough people will be able to continue to stay home to be safe without losing their homes and that the hospitals won't be overwhelmed (although please note that I do not advocate forcing people to do this, or anything else for that matter). There isn't a vaccine yet, so getting resistance to the virus is hard.

I was already wearing masks and social distancing long before the lockdown (I started worrying enough to get masks on January 27th), so just because the government enforces it does not mean I am going to stop. I will stand up for rights, but at the moment, the right to get out isn't so important to me as the right to stay in and be safe from the virus and keep others safe from it too. Never going to let them use a tracking app with me though.

Not to mention they've infiltrated and corrupted Firefox, their Chrome browser competition.

Is that why Firefox has gotten so much worse, becoming a lame Chrome clone instead of the powerful customisable browser it used to be? I came to Firefox for the powerful customisation, with XUL addons like Tab Mix Plus, the ability to add lots of extra toolbars to organise however one likes, and the ability to theme the browser to look like whatever one wants, as well as for nice features like tab groups. When Australis came, however, tab groups and the ability to add extra toolbars was removed, but the toolbars were able to be re-added again with another XUL addon, Classic Theme Restorer, and tab groups had an addon too. A couple years ago, though, it all came crashing down: they removed XUL, killing many of the addons that made Firefox great and removing the ability to re-add many of the features that made Firefox great that depended on those addons. I switched to Palemoon at this point, and found another XUL addon which is a pain to live without (and which is terribly integrated without XUL): Tree Style Tabs.

Later Palemoon started falling behind, so I switched to Waterfox, but now Waterfox is falling behind too. I really want to do something about this, because I am not willing to switch to a browser without tree style tabs, or which has the really ugly hack of having tree style tabs and a normal tab bar at the same time.

Maybe it's different for others, but I was concerned about the virus and wearing masks long before the government was concerned (or anyone else outside of prepperish communities, for that matter), and even when the government said it was no big deal. This isn't a government thing, but a personal and public safety one that some governments just happen to support and sometimes use as an excuse to push dubious agendas like tracking apps. I believe people should oppose the tyranny while still supporting personal responsibility against the virus, like with wearing masks.

If Reddit was moderated by pedophiles, I would probably be allowed say that child pornography should be legal to distribute (as an advocate for freedom of speech and information, I said this in the past), but I am not even allowed to say that fictional child pornography should be able to be distributed, or even describe an old ban I got due to saying this, even in the context of saying why I was banned (in the case of /r/Libertarian, where my context was removed for supposedly violating the rules I was criticising) or even trying to change my view (which I have gotten some cascading permabans for trying to do, if I recall correctly). I make no claims on whether this opinion was justified or not, but what I can say for certain is that one is usually not allowed to express it on Reddit, and for this reason, I believe that most Reddit moderators are not in fact pedophiles, and are so highly opposed to them that one can't even get close to defending them.

According to the /r/Libertarian mods, it is a TOS violation to criticise rules against the distribution of child pornography, even in the context of quoting oneself to explain the reason for a past ban somewhere else. As a strong advocate for freedom of speech and information, I've learned that it is best to pretend pedophiles and child pornography don't exist, at least on Reddit, because when I extend my beliefs on freedom of speech and information to that, even in the context of fictional work, it ends up a lot more controversial than I could have ever imagined. I guess they are censoring everything related to pedophiles now, even things opposing them?

Gentoo could really use a faster package manager too, that also hopefully has less package conflict problems. Also, a good way to deal with proprietary software that has library conflicts, like Steam. These have been really big issues for me lately, and I've been spending a lot of time updating everything with emerge.

I think more of the general public should learn to use command lines to a degree. because command lines are very good user interfaces for many things, but I don't think the public should be introduced to Linux and needing to use them. Rather, I think Linux distributions should have powerful graphical tools that users can use when they first switch, then they can optionally learn about the command line when it is more convenient to do so.

What are your feelings about Gentoo without SystemD? There is still the Intel ME problem, which is why I dream of getting a Talos Secure Workstation someday, there might be issues with the kernel itself – even limited HDCP makes me worried, and even with Wayland supports DRM now :( – but… okey, maybe Linux really is declining even in other respects, even if perhaps fairly mildly, as the 2017 article argues.

As for devices out of China, how do you feel about the Librem 5 vs Librem 5USA? Surely an open source device that can be independently audited could be safe, right?

It is a very very bad situation. I have done all I can to prevent this, but it is putting me in danger. And once you are being stalked, who wants to be your friend?

I do, certainly. I would really like to be around more people who care about these things as much as I do, or better yet, care more than I do. It is hard to stay strong against abuse when most people mind so little that they actually choose to use proprietary software for important things that have alternatives available, like image editing or communication.

If you have the brains to appreciate this, contribute to my work(btc at my site) or people like me will cease to exist, sooner rather than later.

You could have the black person cross the street instead of white, and anyone with a double standard is less likely to see that as racist (even though the situation is pretty similar). Or, you could make both mixed race with no double standard at all. You could even make them anthropomorphic animals, avoiding races entirely, if you want a more colourful solution :P .

Quarterly observations Q1 2020: What signs of collapse do you see in your region? by happysmash27 in collapse

From my comment on the SARS-CoV-2 thread in /r/collapse:

While these guys were neigh-oblivious before going on their wilderness trip where they jokingly wondered if everything would be different when they came back (everything really was totally changed), many of us were predicting potential disaster, and although we were a bit more on top of it than the general news, it looks like what has actually happened has been even worse than /r/collapse generally predicted! I cannot emphasize enough how unbelievably crazy it has gotten! The headlines feel like a disaster movie and are somehow even more dramatic than the bearish predictions on finds here! Like, from the daily update, we have headlines such as these in close proximity:

- California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey and Connecticut have all issued “stay at home orders”; they account for 1/3 of the US economy between them. About 5.4 million residents across the five states do not have health insurance, according to data from the Kaiser Family Foundation. That is about 19% of the total US uninsured.

- A member of the US vice president’s staff tested positive. The employee, who was not identified, had not come into close contact with either the US president, Donald Trump, or his boss, Mike Pence, who is in charge of the US’s coronavirus response.

- A nationwide curfew has begun in Jordan, limiting the mobility of its 10 million citizens indefinitely.

- Colombia also announced that it will begin a country-wide quarantine from Tuesday night.

COVID-19 is everywhere else too, and has comprised literally all of my news push notifications for a while now, also being on platforms like YouTube and unrelated subs like /r/furry.

This is an article which is documentative instead of predictive: The Modern Supply Chain Is Snapping

This article is about a real thing happening now: Coronavirus credit crunch could make 2008 look like 'child's play'

I am using articles like this for an assignment for my high school economics class which now has to be held online due to COVID-19!!!

Real current events!

This is, like, bigger than 9/11!

If I had posted that all these quarentines would happen a month ago, I bet even this sub would think I was being a bit sensationalist! If I read it, I would probably think "Real life probably won't work like those disaster movies when everything happens within weeks. Maybe it will turn out like this, but it probably won't." But… it's real, or at least the crazy human-made response is, in addition to a considerable growing number of infections and deaths. I have pictures of my supermarket shelves being half-empty. I haven't been at this apartment long, as I moved here right before this thing went full-on pandemic, but traffic used to be more of a rush hour on the street in front of here and the cross street used to be fairly busy too, instead of me needing to wait for longer and longer to see a single car. My city, not some far-off one, has issued a stay at home order. It's surreal.

Absolutely surreal.

I'm actually enjoying this a lot more than may happen with other disasters, mostly because the power, water, and internet still work. Thank goodness for that. It's like a vacation from constantly being shuffled from place to place for me, since although I still have school, it's much less stressful to stay at home and do it online, as my school is niche enough that it's very far away with a pretty long taxing journey each day. I'm worried about economic security, actually getting the coronavirus, getting enough supplies (I was on top of the news to urge family to buy early, but I'm worried it might not be enough), and the news is so ridiculously intense that I'm actually putting it down quite often… but my actual life style changes have just been exactly what I've wanted anyway for a long time, both because I like being inside and because they cause less carbon emissions. I guess I'm lucky in that respect, unlike the people that easily get cabin fever, and also because the family I am living with is decently economically secure, and even if we weren't, our new landlord can waive rent payments due to the crisis if needed. I hope most people will be okey in that respect. I also lose a lot of the worry of needing to have pre-made food for school each day, since I can just make a new batch of food whenever. I've been feeling unprepared, but now that I think about it, this is probably one of the disasters I am most prepared for, since I have such good infrastructure to do everything at home. Too bad I never bought some half-decent masks, though. I wore some all the way back on January 27th (I guess there really was worry of it spreading all those weeks ago?), but they were the non-N95 ones that hardly do anything.

Wait, January 27th? Maybe we predicted it after all, for me to be able to worry about getting masks even then.

But I digress and tangent so much, despite writing this on mobile for some strange reason. In summary, this has been as bad, if not worse, than /r/collapse has predicted, and that is utterly mind-blowing to me.

Everyone around me is suddenly taking COVID-19 much more seriously, some even wearing N95 masks. I am no longer just getting COVID-19 news from articles I purposefully look for, but also hear it from radios around me, from the empty store shelves, from about half of my news push notifications, from my Los Angeles school shutting down, from notifications on unrelated websites I go to, and even from the Two Steps From Hell Discord server about a cancelled concert, and from an unrelated comic on Reddit! This is the real deal, I think, at least as a noteworthy disaster and likely recession. It's affecting basically everything, and I would have a hard time getting away from it even if I didn't steadfastly read /u/Fwoggie2's daily updates.

[–]happysmash27 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I, personally, very much dislike pedophile hate, or hate on pretty much any group, for that matter. Criticising someone for rape is one thing, but criticising someone for attraction, even if they don't act on it, is another. I recently read a decent article about that here.

I have always been a big advocate for freedom of speech and freedom of information (mostly in regards to piracy though), and when I was 16, in around January 2018 according to my records, as well as a few years prior to that, I did not think that child pornography should be banned, and was banned from /r/Anarchism in large part because of this. This, combined with the fallout (I got suicidal and went to a mental hospital), was one of the worse stream of events I have experienced. I have a different, more complicated, and less extreme opinion now, but nevertheless the ambiguity of these rules concerns me, as this ban was a major reason I came to this site in the first place. Here is an incomplete, non-updated archive of the ban discussion page which I uploaded a while ago. I also took screenshots of it from RedReader, which are more updated, but which I haven't compiled yet due to reluctance to re-live the events.

On this subject, I generally agree with Richard Stallman, as I agree on a lot of subjects:

I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing.

https://stallman.org/archives/2006-mar-jun.html#05%20June%202006%20(Dutch%20paedophiles%20form%20political%20party)

Here is another quote that I partially agree with, but to a less intense degree:

The nominee is quoted as saying that if the choice of a sexual partner were protected by the Constitution, "prostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia" also would be. He is probably mistaken, legally--but that is unfortunate. All of these acts should be legal as long as no one is coerced. They are illegal only because of prejudice and narrowmindedness.

Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today.

For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants).

Now I think it would probably be a bad idea to distribute child pornography with no regards to the implications, as some people may have been coerced to produce it. Still, if someone turns 18, then says that naked images of themselves from before then should be able to be redistributed, I see no reason that shouldn't be allowed. Furthermore, I think it is even more ridiculous to prosecute someone for having images of themselves while they are underage, especially if they are tried as an adult. Even that seems reasonable compared to banning fictional images of child pornography, which, although making sense to be banned from sites like Saidit, would be downright thought-policing to implement as law. The supreme court of the US has challenged doing so as unconstitutional, if I recall correctly. I would consider that as being as ridiculous as banning violent video games for promoting violence.

I am not a pedophile myself, by the way, but simply like freedom of information a lot and feel a need to defend most people if they are attacked, even if they are bad people or even my own personal enemies.

You make a good point, and I do agree that diversity in locations can be pretty cool, but the argument falls apart without further modification when factoring in people like me, who are mixed race and multicultural in a mixed and multicultural society. I'm fine if people want to be separated in their own countries, but I do not like being separated in my own simply because I have so many influences from so many different cultures. The closest thing to a culture I have is internet culture, and a few other subcultures on the internet, but those aren't tied to any location other than Earth, so don't work very well with nationalism.

I hate the word "capitalism" because it always ends in pointless semantic arguments between people who see capitalism as meaning this and other people who see capitalism as meaning "free markets", free markets which could also exist in a more "socialist" (this word is also confusing) society where individuals and cooperatives own the means of production instead of large corporations and billionaires. We need a new word to describe the currently prevalent oppressive system of moneyed interest in the world. Neo-feudalism, maybe?

Accurate for iOS, but not for Android, especially rooted. The reason I like this phone is that it is modular, with an easy to replace battery, SD card, and radios, and is open enough that it's easy to port other operating systems to it, and keep support of it for long periods of time. It also runs Wayland/Linux by default, meaning that it's easier to use desktop Linux apps in it than it is on Android. Best of all, it will be open hardware, which I strongly support, and is finally a phone that is just about as powerful as my existing OnePlus One, but with better features, meaning that it is actually an sidegrade in terms if specs rather than a downgrade, finally.
