but confirmation bias is quite addictive and powerful so many can't let go of their snags.

Exactly, it is comforting for some people to believe that malevolent forces orchestrate the entirety of world events, rather than believing bad things happens with no greater plan whatsoever. It is more comforting for some people to believe in cruel order over chaos.

Can I do the same, and just call it degenerate?

I don't know, but if it was faked, I could certainly see why America would do so for propaganda purposes. Better than most conspiracies where some enigmatic group does something sinister that somehow vaguely furthers their goal of 'taking over the world'.

The Left's "Boycott" Of Goya Has Backfired Spectacularly As Conservative Customers Clean Out Store Shelves by Tarrock in politics

I mean, what did they expect, that people who weren't buying Goya anyways would somehow put the company out of business, that poor, likely apolitical Mexicans would care? Of course this is what would happen, it was marketing towards a gringo demographic that would otherwise NEVER buy Goya.

Guess it gives a chance for conservatives to prove how not racist they are, I guess.

TIL that in 2010 the stock market experienced a flash crash, when over a trillion dollars were lost and mostly regained, all in 36 minutes. The crash was caused by automatic trading, although the exact causes are not definitely determined. by Jashfior in TIL

It was because AP was hacked, when the algorithms started picking up things like 'terrorist attack, White house, bombed,' they went into overdrive.

I prefer Green, because it had my favorite Pokemon on the cover and was never defiled by Americans.

Nah, I can't remember his name, but that lunatic boomer who comments on literally EVERY SINGLE TRUMP TWEET is also a an r/politics user. He's somehow even worse than average for that sub, since he inflects the standard anti-Trump lunacy with condescending boomer sage 'wisdom' on us youngins.

And yet, I sat back and did nothing. I even had the nerve to argue that the Internet existed for decades without any net neutrality regulations, and seemed to thrive despite that. And now, here we are. The Internet's gone. Boy do I have egg all over my face.

The world would be a better place if that was the end result.

My favorite is the r/pics posts of 'We just got engaged!' These have been a cancerous staple of Reddit for a while, but for the past year or so it's literally either interracial or gay EVERY SINGLE TIME! These posts have always been unproductive and cringy, but the recent ones have the added bane of forced 'diversity' behind them.

No, US will be just as white, white people will just be a bit browner on average. Hispanics will end up being considered and identifying as white, just like the Italians and Irish.

There's some censorship going on in the newly popular feminist subs and it needs to be openly addressed. by [deleted] in SaidIt

Yea, I'm cool with that, but your sub has no place on s/all if that is the case. The front page should be a place for general discussion, not pushing your beliefs like latestagecapitalism did on Reddit, that is either trolling or propaganda.

You can have both though, a free speech front page sub for general discussion, as well as a hidden sub for discussion with only likeminded people. I personally think both are healthy.

I don't know this site works, but in my opinion moderation does not have to equal censorship. In my opinion, insular subs should exist, subs that may even use heavy handed moderation to control discussion, for the reasons the top comment pointed out.

However, I do feel that subs that meet this criteria should not be visible from the front page or receive visibility outside from those participating in the sub. Let them, and honestly everyone else who wants one have their echo chamber. If commies, nazis, or terfs, or whatever want their sub free from outside influence, let them have it, just don't give them mainstream visibility while doing so, they have no right on s/all in that case. If they want that, they must be forced to accept outside criticism while doing so and cannot censor dissenting views. It's the same crap T_D, and later latestagecapitalism did on Reddit, fuck that shit.
