  • Socrates Argues Against Eating Meat
  • I posted the article’s content in the comment section to save people’s eyes from glaucoma. Pun intended.

  • Socrates Argues Against Eating Meat
  • Content of Article:

    Plato wrote a dialogue between two characters, Socrates and Glaucon, in which they discuss the future of their cities. Socrates says the cities should be simple, and the citizens should subsist on barleyand wheat, with “relishes” of salt, olives, cheese and “country fare of boiled onions and cabbage,” with desserts of “figs, peas, beans,” roasted myrtle-berries and beechnuts, and wine in moderation. Socrates says, “And thus, passing their days in tranquility and sound health, they will, in all probability, live to an advanced age …. ” But Glaucon replies that such a diet would only be appropriate for “a community of swine,” and thatthe citizens should live “in a civilized manner.” He continues, “They ought to recline on couches … and have the usual dishes and dessert of a modem dinner.” In other words, the citizens should have the “luxury” of eating meat. Socrates replies, “if you wish us also to contemplate a city that is suffering from inflammation …. We shall also need great quantities of all kinds of cattle for those who may wish to eat them, shall we not?”Glaucon says, “Of course we shall.” Socrates then says, “Then shall we not experience the need of medical men also to a much greater extent under this than under the former regime?” Glaucon can’t deny it. “Yes, indeed,” he says. Socrates goes on to say that this luxurious city will be short of land because of the extra acreage required to raise animals for food. This shortage will lead the citizens to take land from others, which could precipitate violence and war, thus a need for justice. Furthermore, Socrates writes, “when dissoluteness and diseases abound in a city, are not law courts and surgeries opened in abundance, and do not Law and Physic begin to hold their heads high, when numbers even of well-born persons devote themselves with eagerness to these professions?” In other words, in this luxurious city of sickness and disease, lawyers and doctors will become the norm. Plato, in this passage, made it perfectly clear: we shall eat animals only at our own peril. Though it is indeed remarkable that one of the greatest intellectuals in the history of the Western world condemned meat eating almost 2,500 years ago. How did Plato predict the future so accurately? He knew that consuming animal foods would not lead to true health and prosperity. Instead, the false sense of rich luxury granted by being able to eat animals would only lead to a culture of sickness, disease, land disputes, lawyers and doctors. This is a pretty good description of some of the challenges faced by modern America!

    With a Nintendo Switch 2 on the way, I hope Valve make a Steam Deck 2
  • That makes me happy to hear. I just want the steam deck as is so it can grow its roots deeper and allow more developers to become more comfortable with the platform. I would happily wait 5+ years for a new one to be released. Lets just keep things simple for now. Like having more supported multiplayer games, expanding access to new countries, reaching 10 million units sold, new features, 50k games verified, 5% Linux desktop market share, bug fixes, more community documentation/mods.

  • With a Nintendo Switch 2 on the way, I hope Valve make a Steam Deck 2
  • You make a good point. Lets not jump the gun yet here.

  • With a Nintendo Switch 2 on the way, I hope Valve make a Steam Deck 2
  • The steam deck has only been out for two years. It's too soon to be thinking about successor.

    I would rather have Valve follow a consistent release schedule as Valve should focus more on software improvements and features to squeeze out more potential from the original steam deck and have the third party developers target one handheld hardware baseline for every 5-7 years.

    Protest against Public Mobile

    cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ca/post/18786240

    To all new customers and old customers lets work together to protect and reinstate the old rewards system back into Public Mobile.

    Lets use our energy to turn on the multi-biilion dollar Telus for ending public mobile's old rewards and demand that they bring it back for all customers. I as an old rewards customer was against the points system rewards in the first place. The Telus CEO recently took home $13+ million. We shouldn't feel sad for that person. They were still making a killing on the old rewards. There was a meeting where the investors were boasting about how PM has such loyal customers, but now they're overlooking what made the service so good. Community and good prices. This is the result of years of telecom crown corporations being privatized, the service gets worse and more expensive. Along with company mergers reducing competition and stifling innovation in the industry. In 2022 PM assured us that old customers who wished to remain on the old rewards plan could do so. However on the end of march 2024 they reneged on that promise forcing the old rewards customers onto the new rewards plan regardless. So I have filed a complaint with CCTS that has been accepted.

    -The old system was in dollars instead of points.

    -It was applied automatically.

    -Referrals were unlimited.

    -$1 off for every referral.

    -$2 off with autopay.

    -$1 for every year up to $5.

    -Simplicity.

    The new people should get these perks as well.

    We all deserve cheaper bills during this corporate greed trend in the Canadian market.

    -First contact Public Mobile about this then file your complaints with CCTS, CRTC and to any more regulators that are available.

    -Question the new changes under the announcement https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Announcements/Upcoming-Changes-to-our-Old-Rewards-Program/td-p/1154856.

    -Make a new post calling out Public Mobile in the forums.

    -Write to your MP that you were taken advantage of in the Public Mobile false advertising situation.

    -If someone has the means or is a lawyer please start a class action lawsuit against Telus.

    -Contact the Press.

    -Tell your friends and family about how Public Mobile betrayed the old rewards customers.

    -Threaten to switch carriers that are not Public Mobile, Koodo or Telus.

    -Use every tool in the box to fight against this unacceptable situation.

    The divide and conquer strategy will not work on the community Telus. They're wrong about us we stick to together and look out for one another, us united costumers have more bargaining power than they do.

    We need as much pressure as possible. We can do this and get fair treatment as customers.
