What do you think Social Media will be like in 10 years and beyond? by Greedeater in AskSaidIt

I think what you said will happen, but I think at the same time a decentralized and peer-hosted web will develop, that cannot be shut down or censored. Then they'll start calling it "the dark web" and try to split the internet in half. Eventually they'll try to make internet in to a controlled medium like TV. I doubt they'll succeed in full though.

Honestly, hopeful optimism has got me no-where.

But has depressive realism/pessimism gotten you anywhere either?

Where are you trying to "get to"? And why? What do you imagine having or doing that you don't already have? What do you imagine that bringing you? If you can answer these questions in a way that's truthful to yourself, you're already way ahead of most people.

The truth is, the world is both fucked, and everything is special and every moment matters and has ripple effects that last forever. Both are simultaneously true, and it's always been that way. IMO to ignore the good OR ignore the bad, is to only see half the picture.

A true realist wouldn't ignore half of what's happening to suit a particular emotion. They would able to see all emotional angles simultaneously, good and bad, because they're all "true", right?

Sure we're all going to die, but we all have to live in the meantime. Your experience can suck, or you can make it not suck, or whatever you want. You can make it not matter, or matter tremendously. It's literally up to your mind's emotional interpretation of sensory data, which ultimately is something we decide. How do you want to pass the time?

Please take 45 seconds and watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovKw6YjqSfM

Please consider that much of Monsanto's science isn't actually peer-reviewed in any thorough way, it only has the appearance of such. Monsanto has teams of scientists that work to make monsanto look good, and the ones that produce papers that don't make monsanto look good are let go. Then the positive articles are published journals that monsanto has connections to. Papers by independent teams with contradictory results are kept from being published and so must publish to lesser-known journals.

Unfortunately it is relatively easy for a company the size of monsato to create the false appearance of consensus in the scientific community about glyphosate, especially when billions of dollars of profit depends on it, so they will literally spend billions to keep that false consensus going because it is profitable to do so.

"It's hard to get a man to see the truth when his income depends on him not seeing it." - Upton Sinclair

And I say this as someone who worked doing medical research at a big institution for 7 years, and I have a paper that might be getting published soon. I have seen how things work from the inside, how the sausage is made, and it is not always pretty. And sometimes people don't really care about real science anymore, and it becomes a grind to them. A way to be employed and make money, that's all.

I love the scientific method, it is one of the pinnacles of human wisdom. However the published journals and proclamations don't always match up to this, and will sometimes box out opposing opinions, especially if their careers depend on it.

This is the difference between actual science using the scientific method, and what I call "scientism" which is just believing whatever gets published by the biggest journals, by the academic establishment.

Ideally, there'd be no discrepancy between the two. But in reality, because humans are faulty beings full of biases (especially when a money incentive is involved) there ends up being a lot of bias that creeps in to the process of deciding what gets published and what doesn't.

When you create an experiment that gives a repeatable result that goes against mainstream published scientific dogma, and everyone tells you you're wrong because they believe what is published over what is actually reproducible, there is a problem with the establishment.

And this is the situation we find ourselves in with many corporate-published studies that we took to be true.

Remember when scientists and doctors thought cigarettes were healthy in the 1940s-50s? That's because of corporate "science" published by cigarette companies. A few decades later, the real science eventually broke through and things turned against the tobacco companies. But it took literally decades to undo the damage they had done with their fake profit-driven science.

This type of infection in to the world of published scientific literature is a staggering problem that is woefully under-addressed in academia and the scientific community at large. But I think people are starting to wake up about it, because it's become so shockingly common.

And remember even without the profit incentives, established science can be very wrong about things. Luminous Aether used to be the prevailing description about how the vacuum of space transmitted light, but it's very easily provable to be incorrect: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luminiferous_aether

The guy who realized washing hands before surgery was committed to a nuthouse because no one believed him. Decades later everyone knows he was unquestionably correct.

Just throwing this out there, what if the first part was real, and the second part is not?

I was honestly extremely convinced by the first video, and I watched it basically expecting it to be a hoax. I haven't delved too much in to the second one though.

Even if it is a hoax and a false flag, instead of real and a false flag, does that really change anything? Like if you knew it was 100% a hoax, what does that get you over knowing it's a false flag that was real and served the same purpose anyway?

I think the false flag aspect of it is much more relevant than the hoax/not hoax aspect of it, tbh. And I think over-focusing on the hoax aspect minimizes the very valid false flag aspect that is being used to push legislation and put people in jail right now.

Even if it was real, the government should not be responding the way it is. I think that should be the focal point of the conversation. Because digging in to this hoax/not-hoax stuff gets in to a lot of minutiae and opinions about "what's normal" and what isn't, and so on, which is interesting, but not as worthwhile as the very obviously real reaction that the government and populace is having from this event.

I'm not saying don't dig of course, I'm just saying that my sense of priorities has me leaning towards the discussion that is indisputably real, rather than bickering over hoax/not-hoax based on a lot of assumptions. Just as a matter of efficiency, because the end result of those two discussion is the same imo (government overreach is out of control) but the hoax/not-hoax angle adds a bunch of uncertainty in to a conversation where bad things are almost certainly happening...

Anyway, not that you asked or wanted it, but there's my opinion.

That said, if you have a silver bullet that this is a hoax, then by all means. But I don't regard this video as a silver bullet. It's weird, but I wouldn't say proof of a hoax

America Is Number One! by EndlessSunflowers in LateStageCapitalism

It was great 50-30 years ago, and now we're doing a really patchwork job at maintaining it, basically. The prototypical example of poor US infrastructure is the Detroit water system, which is literally filled with lead and is poisoning people, but they refuse to set aside the money to do anything about it.

But the federal government is more than happy to send aid to Venezuela because it fulfills their political goals. But meanwhile in their own country Detroit is left to decay and rot. The hypocrisy is very upsetting to many Americans, especially since it's basically theft of our tax dollars!

Because the telcom companies are basically holding our government hostage via regulatory capture.

Study: Drinking Very Hot Tea Almost Doubles Esophagial Cancer Risk by useless_aether in Health

I've noticed lately drinking hot tea doesn't leave me feeling as good as cold tea.

However in taiwan and china there is a cultural belief that hot drinks are good for you and cold drinks are bad for you because your body has to heat it up. But I think that may be a remnant from the historical need to boil water for it to be safe to drink, but that's just a personal theory.

Resignation letter of Nowata County, Oklahoma sheriff Terry Barnett, after a judge ordered her to reopen an unsafe jail with near-lethal carbon monoxide and exposed wiring. by magnora7 in news

It's unlikely that an internationally recognized recently-arrested protesting elected sheriff would be assassinated.

Seeing the reaction a mere resignation letter has caused, I wouldn't be so sure. But you're probably right.

Also maybe more importantly, they can just fire her immediately the literal instant she resists at all. There's no rights to employment lasting, it can be cut off immediately at any time for basically any reason. So by resigning it makes a bigger splash instead of being fired and then writing a letter about it.

Yeah I would love to hear a stand-up set of 2019 material. Probably wouldn't be that different, though. A lot of his comedy is timeless, even the political stuff, especially the last few stand-up specials.

I agree, in theory that would've been even better. But in reality she might know that would get her killed or something, who knows. The culture around these types of organizations can be extremely questionable sometimes. A human life doesn't have a lot of value when your job is literally trafficking humans like cattle in to concrete cages. Removing sticking cog in the machine might not be out of the question.

I'm not saying it's 100% definitely like that, but I can maybe understand why she did what she did. It was still quite brave.
