Just the little things
  • I do read theory. I just know theory isnt the be all end all of understanding the world. If it was, that would be great, but you just happen to agree with this guys philosophical musings. Besides that, you call me a liberal when I'm literally not but whatever.

    You're arguing with an imaginary friend and a beautiful strawman opinion you made for him to hold.

    I never said anything about Haiti, but comparing anybody living in a first world country (the vast majority of this site's users and where such a revolution is more likely to take place) to a slave is disingenuous at absolute best.

    I also don't think that Dessalines needed to massacre the remaining french people on the island. I'm willing to bet I have a better und3rstanding of the haitian revolution than you. You know they reinstated slavery within a couple of years, right? Read some Trouillot.

  • Ah, yes, all societies and situations are homogeneous I forgot.

    Besides that, people deserve to die for playing by the rules of the system in which we live? Why not change the rules to prevent abuse?

  • The issue with considering these to be anything like the 'hard sciences' is that it is impossible to even try to control for all variables. Plus, whenever sociologists, for example, make a bad prediction, they just write it off as differences in personality or some other similar thing.

    God forbid they actually just falsified their hypothesis. It's important that people understand how to think about the social sciences, don't get me wrong, but they're pretty overwhelmingly ineffective for creating a proper framework for understanding the world around you.

    Theories in social science and theories in hard science are totally different.

    Theories in science have a shit ton of evidence behind them and haven't been falsified.

    Theories in social science, on the other hand, are all in competition with each other because they all have their positive and negative aspects that make them better for application in some situations than others.

    And yes I know that we still use a newtonian idea of gravity in many cases, but that's completely different as it just tends to make the math easier in practice. It's not that we actually still believe in newtonian ideas.

  • Justice for our boy
  • You know construction workers are jacked compared to desk workers right? Like if you take a random construction worker and a random office worker, neither of which lift, the construction worker is going to tend towards both more mass overall (as it helps prevent injuries) and more muscle mass (because working out as your work tends to do a lot for your body)

  • The men vs. bear saga reaches the inevitable conclusion
  • I'm bi and call stuff I don't like 'gay' all the time. I also call stuff I like 'gay'. I don't think that the use of a term by those it applies to can really be negative as its more of an empowerment thing abt takibg the word back for the community. It's like getting mad at people that call each other the n-word (especially if you aren't black yourself).

  • Airport security be like
  • That doesn't mean it's not still a show. In the 2010s (forget when exactly) the TSA was tested with fake bombs and let them through 49/50 times. They have never successfully stopped a terrorist attack either afaik.

  • Workers Create Value
  • Jsyk, looking up "etymology redneck" indicates the term comes from sunburn on the back of manual laborers' necks and was in use for a bout a century before. I am always glad to see the West Virginia coal mine wars brought up tho so kudos.
