Nice, thanks for the link. I've read a couple different translations, but I might give this one a go too. Cheers

Wow thanks for the story.

I think the best way to let them learn from the School of Hard Knocks is to let the world knock them around a bit. What I mean is that this sounds like a personality still developing in a lot of ways. But I also would never have interjected in to an adult conversation as a teen and told them they were stupid. My parents raised me where if I had done such a thing it would've put me a WHOLE LOT of trouble (like months of grounding, potential military school, etc). Anyway I'm not sure the exact ages of the people involved.

I think from your perspective you just have to pick your battles, and this baseball issue probably just isn't worth it. But I definitely understand the frustration and the larger point of the principle of the thing. The reality of it though is you can bring a horse to water but you cannot make it drink. I think just give advice where you can and move on, there's no reason casting pearls before swine. And there's also no reason to waste your emotional energy on someone's knee-jerk opinion!

I get mad about stuff like this too, but often it's not so much the thing itself, as it is what the thing says about general society and the direction we're heading. I am mad at that, sometimes.

But in a way this Earth is like a 7-billion-person Ouiji Board. The direction it moves is pretty random and out of our control, in a lot of ways.

And what would serve you and yours best in the short and long run? Would winning the discussion actually change the direction things are moving in? Is the inner peace you're giving up by ignoring the issue worth that potential gain of changing the course of humanity ever so slightly? Does the division created between yourself and your family about this issue actually help or hurt the overall peace and tranquility of your immediate community?

I don't know the answers to these in your exact situation, but I think these questions are a good place to start.

I've heard we have 20 fucks a day to give about stuff. Spend them wisely!

Nice. There is definitely some oil field deserts in Texas, I've been to them. I mostly live in the city though.

That's awesome you're in to Taoism, I am a big fan of Taoism too. The Tao Te Ching is a great book, much wisdom in very few words

Authoritarianism is the result of many political systems... I can point to many historical examples of authoritarian governments that aren't socialist. That's all I'm saying.

I agree, but socialism is far from the only type of political system that leads to authoritarianism.

Nice. This game is awesome. I should give it another play.

I landed on the moon and several planets. The hardest thing I ever tried to do was crash in to the sun. I could never do it. It seems like it'd be easy to just "fall" in to the sun once you get off the Earth, but it's not. You have to undo all the sideways momentum from earth orbiting the sun with your rockets in order to properly fall toward the sun instead of orbit, and that takes a ton of fuel.

Kind of an eye-opening moment for me about how gravity works, and how much momentum everything has. It's very hard to get out of a stable orbit!

Anyway cool sub! Just wanted to share my Kerbal story.

I definitely agree with you on the education bit. Education these days is far more about rote memorization than wisdom. But maybe that's all it ever was.

The problem for the younger generation is when those "stumbling blocks" you mention become such onerous disasters that they crush the people and sweep them under if a misstep is made. That's what leads to the parlaying fear that causes the appearance of meekness that millennials are often chastised for. And simultaneously all their schooling and upbringing has taught them to solve problems through approved channels rather than trying to solve it themselves. So they've been highly incentivized that way more than any other generation.

I can't imagine how great America would be today if Ron Paul had won the presidency, instead of being boxed out by the corporate-owned (and CIA-owned) media.

"If banks can borrow money from the federal reserve at 3%, why cant we? Why do we have to go through a money changer to get access to capital? In all honesty for profit banking should be outlawed like for profit hospitals were before Nixon. Usury is the problem in our society. Not capitalism." by Orangutan in politics

Yeah, especially when the loans are essentially government-backed anyway if they fail. (Aka Too big to fail bailouts). That really takes the risk out of the equation for the insurance companies. So the high interest rates seem especially inhumane.

Yup :) My fluency is quite poor though to be honest and I'm much better at reading than listening. That's cool you speak it too snow :)

Bitcoin SV (The Bitcoin Cash fork) jumps 75% overnight by magnora7 in cryptocurrency

So Bitcoin had a fork called Bitcoin Cash.

Then Bitcoin Cash had a fork called Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision). It's been at about 1/5 the value of Bitcoin Cash. But last night it went crazy! Trying to find news on why...

Functionally the same, resulting in a 2-party system

No. But people don't leave their doors unlocked in the US anymore, even in smaller towns.

while the middle class in America routinely leaves their doors unlocked and live lives free of fear.

Nice joke. Not sure where you're living, but this isn't true at all in most of the US.

Some inequality is ok. Ridiculous inequality is not okay because it harms economies and cultures and impoverishes millions.

Nice, that's cool. I've not been to any of those except 樹林. I really liked the east side of Taiwan, it's so tropical and relaxed.
