It means we need to placate their better side and get rid of things like the drug war, before we get more disenfranchised calling for things even more destructive than the drug war like communism.

To win the war on drugs you have to change the culture, not enforce laws. It's the only way that has ever worked without creating more problems than it resolves (which is none, and many, disrespectively).

Brilliant.org alone can teach you more than any of your teachers know. Not only are there non-government options, but there are 100% free options. A lot of them. It's not weird to ask parents to bare the cost of their kid's education just like it's not weird to ask them to pay money to feed them. Like we don't need public school multiple times over.

"But what about parents that don't bother to educate their kids?" Well what about parents that don't feed their kids? Does the government become the parent to all because of 1% of the population?

Utah Black Lives Matter protesters face charges with potential life sentence by suckitreddit in news

[–]x0x7 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Life sentences shouldn't even be an option except for the worst crimes (multiple homicide). Even though when dealing with the law, "up to" is a very significant phase. The issue is that if life is a possible outcome you essentially throw out the 5th Amendment when you enter the period of plea deals. It's reasonable that you would say anything to remove the chance of a life sentence.

Since we are taking people out of prisons anyway, we should probably free everyone convicted under a plea deal because it's compelled testimony against one's self (through differential sentencing). If you are treated differently for testifying against yourself, you are essentially punished for not testifying against yourself. which is exactly what the 5th Amendment was intended to prevent.

You cannot treat someone differently based on their willingness to testify against themselves. You also especially shouldn't be able to start with fewer charges and threaten to levy more if they fail to agree to say what you want them to say in a courtroom. And especially life sentences should never never be a part of this equation.

If you had risk of a life sentence and you plead, as far as I'm concerned you are innocent.

Powerful peaceful protesters stand together to block the New Orleans courthouse to prevent landlords from evicting people by EndlessSunflowers in LateStageCapitalism

[–]x0x7 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I was referring to shutting down the economies of entire states. Propagandists such as yourself have convinced people doing such a thing is consequence free, and we are seeing that it isn't. Business isn't about greedy people getting more money. That's 1/100th the market. It is majorally people taking care of their needs and earning an income by taking care of other people. Shut it down and no one is taken care of. Enable investment and more of people's needs are taken care of to the point that the marginal need taken care of verges on luxury, which you hate. But you are soon going to find out that luxury and absolute need are all on a continuum and are taken care of by the same systems. (The ones you hate).

Besides, to the extent that people feel like they are on more of a treadmill than the past, that is due to the Federal Reserve. See, when they print money and give it to the banks at below natural interest, it is a wealth transfer to the banks. You can see this in the more absolute case where the interbank lending rate is at zero real interest rate (a line we've already crossed). If I handed you a loan for $5 at zero interest and said there are no term limit on the loan (pay me back when you want to), did I just give you a loan or $5? When the Fed prints trillions of dollars and gives it to the banks it doesn't create anything.

So having a dollar is having some degree of command over the goods that are available in the market. When you work you add to the market pool, and you get some dollars. Then you can extract from the pool what you like. When a bunch of money is created and handed to some 5 or so parties (banks with a relationship with the Federal Reserve), all it does is shift the share of command of the available goods from some to the banks. So essentially you now have to rent that purchasing power back.

I don't know how you latestagecapitalism folks don't oppose the Fed. You'd have to be stupid not to. The problem isn't capitalism. It's that people who hate natural markets insist on fucking around with it making it worse. You all automatically think any deviation from a natural market is automatically a good thing, but it's not. Sometime we need to talk about how minimum wage creates homelessness. You can see it empirically in geographically similar towns and states.

Your problem is y'alls obsession with false consciousness. When someone tells you what the relevant criticisms of a policy are and why it will backfire you just tune them out as being pro-capitalist.

Shutdowns, Fed, Minimum wage (which if you look at it historically it was intended to be an economic Jim Crow so it's not even that weird to think it could harm people). You keep making the little guy's life worse, because you don't understand enough about economics to even comprehend how your ideas could be harmful.

Churches don't pay property taxes on their land or buildings. When they buy stuff, they don't pay sales taxes. When they sell stuff at a profit, they don't pay capital gains tax. If they spend less than they take in, they don't pay corporate income taxes. by iraelmossadreddit in whatever

Absolute BS on sales tax. They are a non-profit. The people patronizing them don't directly benefit. That's how all organizations of that form work. If your pastor takes in a salary (now that's wrong.. aka priestcraft), then he pays personal income tax on it.

Taxes are bad anyway. Nobody should be paying them. Churches provide community resources independent of the state and help improve the probability that maybe one day nobody will have to pay them. A community based on voluntary association with voluntary payments into the common pool is not something to be complaining about.

Other countries have more control over their borders and don't have as many travel agreements as the US.

This means free healthcare would be free healthcare for the entire world, and yet citizens would be the only ones paying. Either the quality would have to go down or every citizen would be bankrupted.

My prediction if Trump wins vs if Biden wins by Aureus in PredictTheFuture

[–]x0x7 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

People underestimate the power of a bad candidate. Trump didn't win the election. Hillary lost it. She was born to lose it. And so is Biden. Polling measures republican vs democrat. But in the last few days when people realize they are actually going to vote for somebody the weekness of their candidate becomes more real. It also becomes more real when we actually have debates.

The only thing I disagree with in what you said is that republicans will say Trump went too far. The problem with that is "too far" in what? In terms of policy he hasn't been extreme. He's just been consistently labeled as extreme. If Trump loses there is no lesson to learn from his failure except that you aren't allowed to be reasonable. That will be a scary lesson for conservatives to learn.

That period of stability is one of the reasons why the price will go up the second it appears to offer any utility over the dollar. Now that we have that utility demonstrated from the US's recent insane UBI schemes with basically zero tax funding, and a recent track record of stability. That demonstrates that bitcoin has utility. More so than compared to itself when that 9000 was first established when it had just before it a period of instability and the US and other nations were being relatively responsible.

Comparative increase in utility equals price increase, as more people are willing to have a greater share of their savings in the form of bitcoin. The only way everyone on the planet could have 20% savings in bitcoin is if the price was high enough for that to be possible, and the price is the part that is flexible, so the price will adjust to whatever average allocation of savings people are willing to sink into it.

I'm talking about the macro-economic effect. Applying welfare to ableboddied people en masse is going to lead to lower worker participation.. which is going to make the country poor. All of us together. We share our wealth with them and they share their poverty with you, even if you are working your butt off.

Even without increased taxes this is true. It is sufficient that they are consuming what you work to produce and have a claim in the market for. A country with less produced is going to be poorer. If they are making the same income as you not working you are going to be equally poor as them even while working.

If any group on the right did 1/100th what they do they would be shot dead, and their children too or lit on fire, ruby ridge and waco style.

Why? Cops understand that people on the right are adults so they have less patience. They understand that people on the left are basically children and so they feel bad enough that they only respond with violence if their life is in danger.

Were police lives in danger at Ruby Ridge? Not after they retreated from an altercation that was their fault. Were the police in danger at Waco? Hell no. Were they in danger for Bundy Ranch? Nope. But all we got was escalation and eventual murder from them.

But with the left we get deescalation. Why aren't the feds intentionally attempting to provoke escalation like they do in every case involving the right?

And the right is more peaceful too when unhampered with. What do they want to do? Live in the woods alone without plain clothes officers coming onto their land and shooting rounds everywhere? That's reasonable. Sit in a building with some guns? That's reasonable. Let some cows eat some grass that for fire prevention purposes needs to be eaten anyway? That one is just awful.

Left? Take over and loot all small businesses they can get their hands on. Take over the premises of law enforcement. Prevent the safe passage of EMTs. Nope, that deserves deescalation from the feds.

This is why the Feds will always be a joke and a threat to the decent people in this country rather than an servant to it.

All of this welfare is going to make it worse. I have coworkers not coming back to work and collecting unemployment. They are able to skirt work because our job would "put us in danger." With fewer people working, less is produced, while we still have everyone consuming. That's what's going to create shortages.

This is what creates a consumption gap, and poverty, hunger. By helping people the way we are we are giving them no motive to work and therefore we are increasing the end difficulty they (or even worse people working) will face. I'm basically working for free these days because it's the moral thing to do.

Here's what I say. If we ever get to the point that a lot of people are going to die because of supply shortages.. instead of turning it into a competition for who is willing to take out the biggest loans to be the one to eat (which the banks will love), we just make it so whoever didn't work gets a bullet right away. Then those of us who did work will be able to eat without taking out loans. Sense we produced the food or other useful goods they should be ours. Not yours. And not ours on loan from the bank.

The list of people who received public money just be public, for that very reason.

All Walmart stores will be closed on Thanksgiving 2020, ending Black Friday shopping head start by Nemacolin in news

I love capitalism. But I love family more. Family > consumerism.

Might as well get rid of Black Friday too. That's Thanks Giving weekend. That's time for shoppers and workers to spend with family. You have literally from the end of November to almost all of December to do shopping. If the stores didn't do such ridiculous promotions they could just have lower prices generally.

This is one of the good things about a society that practices the Sabbath.. learning that not every day has to be a business day. Since we've had more immigrants many of them haven't learned that it's not normal to be open on Christmas unless you're operating an ER. This is the next thing we need to fix.

Except that comment was posted two hours after the post and I've been known to post something and then go to work. Is he supposed to glue himself to the thread?

Give it a little more time before you interpret silence. I mean we are getting close to the time that you can call that, but it's not very sure footed.

How to prevent this from becoming a racist cesspool like voat by davidorr in SaidIt

[–]x0x7 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It is sufficient that this site has no downvoting, or highly restricted downvoting. Voat is a echo chamber because they can downvote anything they don't like.

There being some racism on a site (a perfectly reasonable world view backed by science) does not make it an echo chamber.

Shutting out all racism literally does make it an echo chamber. You fear this site theoretically becoming an echo chamber with time, but your proposal would make it one tomorrow.

Hold Fast Against Extremism by ABlueSkilttle in SaidIt

I just want to say that there is nothing extremists about criticizing zionists or those hell bend on forcing demographic shift. The first uses a military industrial complex to achieve its ends and is a well documented source of corruption in our system. The second believes applying discrimination to the majority of the population and it would make sense for that population to oppose them for that, and doing so is no form of extremism. Combating or criticizing their extremism is not extremism.

Everyone? It's clear that a balance is needed here, and the problem with an argument is that one side wins and usually takes an extreme position.

I don't see this argument as beneficial to saidit no matter who wins.

I feel bad about it too because I was pretty influential. I was one of two people who drove off /u/she for being a power mod. The other of us went on to create protectvoat after that. But where I really fucked up was encouraging the idea that new migrants needed to learn our culture, for which I was referring to the idea that arbitrary moderation of generic topic subs is not a thing on Voat. And that non-generic topics need rules to be written out before making bans.

With a lot of campaigning I was able to get responsible people to join me in communicating that.. but the "they must learn our culture" thing stuck, but not what it meant. After a few migrations the new migrants only new of our culture "niggerfaggot" and so they took to teaching culture on every subsequent migration.

You confuse consumerism for capitalism, capitalism for socialism and then blame the Jews when you cant even manage your own civilization. by [deleted] in whatever

Capitalism can also be a culture and we don't have it. Preferring assets to solve problems over services, and developing permanent solutions funded by money saved instead of matching your consumption to your paycheck 1:1 would be real capitalist culture.

What services do you use? How can you build an asset that solves the same problem? I've been looking for that a lot lately. I'm moving to self hosting. Building my own cloud flare. Just build my own excel since Microsoft Office is now service based. https://jssocial.pw/app/3dspread3.

I'm planning to build my own water capture system (2.0, I've already built one in the past I removed). I'm starting to live my life under the thinking that you won't be able to rely on any service public or commercial in four years.

Once you've built an asset for yourself you can expand it and provide a service for others.. or even sell an asset solution yourself.

Just get a pacemaker.

A pacemaker is kind of funny, because it crosses a further line. Instead of you being in control of the machine the machine is in control of part of you. It's the agent and you are the hardware.

Makes sense considering they volunteered to not be on /all, and /all/new is a subset of /all.

I sometimes eat my lunch off of a paper plate so I don't have to wash anything afterwards. What's a lazy habit you have? by JFVG in AskSaidIt

I once had a batch of work clothes I needed to wash. I put them in at the hot setting, speed wash. Then I realized I didn't put soap in. Oh no. The clothes came out fine and I didn't end up smelling. And they were pretty rank clothes going in.

For some reason I still use soap even though I've seen that if you have a load that can go in on hot, you kinda don't need it.

That's weird. There should be a lot of conservatives that love nature. There's just something wrong with our modern world, and when you get away to nature it's all made right.

You must live in a rural area where people get enough nature already. Any conservative near me is nature starved enough to be able to appreciate it.

Voat was once socially functional. It was when I got there.

Niggerfaggot didn't work out. It kept only the most cancerous groups. Mass new user downvoting didn't help either. It only meant groups organized and manipulative enough to be able to get the needed ccp to survive did so.

The problem with Niggerfaggot is the frequency. You want people who are reasonable and who have standards for the community they associate with. You want users who find finding inviting and intelligent people, as a reason to act the same way, but who don't freak out and call for banning the second they see something they don't like.

You only need one instance of something negative to identify their reaction to it. But it shouldn't become the whole culture of the site.
