I agree with most, but why abolish ICE? Do our border laws not need enforcing? We can't just let it be a free-for-all...

Good. I don't know if it's for moral or financial reasons, or both, but good for them. The war on Yemen is awful, and Saudi Arabia is the one doing it, with arms given to them mostly by the US. They spend 22% of their national federal expenditures on military, which is insanely huge compared to most countries.

Wow I just realized both trillion and million are misspelled from the headline I got it from, my bad

Seriously, we should have a day (or even two) off to vote and get it all done right. The way it is now just stifles people who have to work

Replication failures in psychology not due to differences in study populations by Nechama in Psychology

[–]magnora7 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

The replication crisis in academic psychology is one of the bigger problems science faces today. Estimates are that 40-60% of all psychology papers are not reproducible, and therefore are not science. Quite shocking considering how much trust we as a culture put in science and the scientific establishments that control scientific paper publishing.

"War is a racket. It always has been... a few profit - and the many pay. But there is a way to stop it...." - General Smedley Butler by magnora7 in quotes

It is true that if no one were to participate in a war, it wouldn't happen... profit drives the entire system. Even now most people in the military do it to pay for college. And the generals have their salaries, and so do the people who call the shots at the top of the military-industrial complex.

I guess in some ways the only real way to address it is like you said, to pet a dog and do little things to help others. We have to each have a revolution inside of us, to act better, to make the world better. But what will trigger that on a mass scale? And how can we help that process along?
