Is everything the worst?
  • Living in the US, I see on a daily basis the indifference to climate. It's been heavily politicized. One side cares a little, the other side does not care one bit. It's very sad to see.

    I also lived in Europe for many years where climate is less politicized and more mainstream. Most people try to do their best to contribute regardless of their political preferences. It's a big difference to what I see in the US.

  • Patrick Breyer and Pirate Party lose EU Parliament seats
  • I'd argue that a progressive country like Denmark with its universal healthcare and universally available college-level education is substantially more free than a freedom-touting country like the United States that limits access to these basics to those with substantial resources.

    Everyday, as an American
  • Just start doing it now and eventually things will have converted. It may take a while, but it will happen eventually if you do it consistently.

    But there are too many contrarian Americans out there who'll take inconvenience over logic just because it "the American way" or "America is special." Have several of those people in my extended family.

    [US] I'm hesitating launching my own business because I'd lose health insurance for my family. What are my options?

    I have everything pretty much ready to launch full time. Time, skills, customers, support from family. But I'd leave my current job behind and with it my family's health insurance for the foreseeable future. I can't afford any of the options I've seen. It's the one thing holding me back. Any ideas for affordable health insurance for startups? If you've been in the same situation, what did you end up doing?

    Trump "floods the zone" as general election tests desensitized voters

    Many voters have tuned out — or priced in — Trump's baggage and legal issues to the point where he's now favored to defeat President Biden in November, according to RCP's polling average.

    A Suffolk poll out Wednesday found that 49% of voters now approve of Trump's job performance as president — matching the highest point he ever reached in office. The big picture: Financial Times columnist Ed Luce calls this phenomenon "the banality of chaos."

    Trump's candidacy is "so far off the charts it is almost paranormal," Luce writes, but most of the former president's controversies no longer break through to the public.

    In 2018, former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon argued that the best way to neutralize the media — which he labeled "the real opposition" — is to "flood the zone with shit."
