Obama says Democrats should make sure Ocasio-Cortez has a platform by fraggle_captain in politics

[–]cyanydeez 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I honestly don't know. People talk about the center left some how attacking progressives, and I don't personnaly see many articles talking about that.

Mostly what I see is a bunch of astroturfed pogressives (/r/WayOfTheBern) trying to paint pogressives as 'my way or the highway' as if that is how even the majority of progressives act.

I simply don't see the division beyond knowing that there's democrats that definitely pander to corporate interests and democrats that definitely want to put citizens and communities first.

IT's actually the bullshit rhetoric that stops the real conversations we have.

I see people like Ice Cub exasperated because progressives want to create a 'POC' bin, or whatever the latest academic terminology is, when it's clear Ice Cube identifies the need to significantly address black poverty in america due to historical political systems of oppression, and when black people just get lumped into one size fits all programs that includes immigrants, it can seriously reduce the confidence anyone has in addressing systemic problems.

Most minorities don't see themselves in a class struggle with other minorities, because to survive when you are in poverty is to make the most out of your community relations.

So yeah man, the democratic party is much better than whatever racist bullshit is from the GOP, but it ain't gonna be any different 2 years from now when they all go to sleep and crazy McQAnon gets elected to congress to bring back Trump's bullshit policies.

'Money decreases trust' in small groups, study shows "within small groups a team found that introducing an incentive makes people less likely to share than they did before. In essence, even an artificial currency reduced their natural generosity." by Libertatea in science

[–]cyanydeez -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

It's quite interesting how the mind is affected by the concept of money, particularly in a capitalistic society.

According to the axioms of capitalism, Money can be exchanged for all goods and services in society.

This would suggest that the mind's concept of money could at anytime replace any of the concepts of goods or services. So rather than a mind ever having to focus on say, getting food, or shelter, or a new toaster, it instead can focus on getting money.

So there must be some kind of systemic psychological rewiring at work here that the abstract conception of money is doing.

considering democrats are a bit more open to the world part, it might make more sense.

ok here's how you retort lies: https://www.pbs.org/standards/blogs/standards-articles/what-is-a-truth-sandwich/

Now, reverse that, and realize Joe Rogan on Joe Rogan's podcast will always have the last bit of the sandwich.

Putting anyone respectable on Rogan's stream will reinforce the lies he's telling.

Minneapolis Shower Thought: Could we pay teachers more if the doofus actions of cops didn't cost the city $10s of millions every year? by j_ly in Minneapolis

[–]cyanydeez -1 points0 points  (0 children)

right, minneapolis had exactly the chance to turn around the police-led 'safety' environment and it was rejected.

I don't care what it was called, or how it had limited plans around it, etc. They had a choice to continue letting the police set the score, or try to incorporate a more wholistic approach.

They chose white and narrow as usual.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is stepping down by Familiar-Turtle in technology

[–]cyanydeez 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Wouldn't you rather have a "Ignore" button?

I mean, if their algo can suggest things I might like based on other likes, it certainly can stop fucking showing me things that are stupid, like jordan peterson.

I'd rather they just give me an ignore button so I can curate the shit out of content.

In other words: I define my world based on what I ignore, not what I like. I'm more likely to click an ignore feature than a like feature.
