Snowden: "They've gone full mask-off: do not ever trust OpenAI or its products"
  • You're just like the ones i hear saying RATM went soft. Stop being a dumbass, it's infectious for some and the rest of us are embarrassed for you.

    This comment isn't just to get you angry, though it is that too. The second part, here is to tell you that ad hominem is a widely used propaganda method to shut down thought on important topics.

    Does where snowden decides to post his message reduce, at all, the content of that message?

    Easy! No. Not at all.

    So don't carry water for the ones who silence dissent. It makes you useful to them, and useless to the rest of the world

  • The truth...
  • I don't like blaming us humans too much. I do it too but fo real a lot is being asked of a species that are evolutionarily, literally the same dirty monkeys who stumbled out of caves. Nothing has changed in our guts. We are all "unfrozen caveman lawyer".

    We like to think we're smart, but that's not our strength. It's our communication, our ability to combine strengths and abilities to shore up individual weaknesses. This, our greatest strength, has been co-opted by interests who have spent a great deal of time learning how to manipulate opinions.

    Years and years of advertising data go into think tanks who then spend their whole work day trying to figure out how to push our buttons to get is where they want. These bullshit artists are paid to do this, why would we poor dirty homo sapiens have a chance?

    It's not our fault, this is what society looks and sounds like when every level of discourse has been co-opted by a rich fuck who bought the only bullhorn.

  • The truth...
  • I like V for Vendetta but i cannot watch the end of the movie where the crowd just walks through the police without thinking "never in a million years would it go down that way". I do know it gets a bit visually metaphorical there at the end but scoff!! Scoff i say!

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • Well i appreciate the backup anyway. It's a lonely slog talking truth in election season. Hard to keep sanity what with all the propheads parroting, as you say. So what I'm saying is it was nice to see, even if you're not happy with the content of your comment.

  • [anyone who]isn’t willing to vote against him is either a racist or a moron.

    The kind of person who reduces disagreements to simple black and white terms along with denigrating their opposition as "stupid or racist" isnt the kind of person who should imagine themselves smarter (as those two choices shut down thought) but they often are. These "loudest" people believe calling others dumb protects them from looking foolish themselves, somehow.

    They are mistaken

  • I've heard this before my friend. Respectfully, i disagree with the premise. I have an opinion I'm not asking you to share, but it is this: if im forced to vote for someone, then I've already lost the right to vote. So I'm going to exercise my right while I've got it, doing what i believe in. I hope things turn out better than both of us suspect they will

  • It's funny right? This should be the strongest green party showing ever and it's strangely quiet politically. Dems emptying the pistol into their toes, Repubs frothing at the mouth, ya think more folks would say "fuck it let's try a third way". But the 2 party backers are more loudly than ever proclaiming how important it is to stay a 2 party system, and we are generally eating the bait.

    Ill take my downvotes cuz im voting stein. I don't like her that much frankly but i don't actively despise her so i guess that's who ill "throw away"my vote for.

    Lol i don't care enough for her to even say stein '24. No pins, no bumper stickers for this cat.

    But i figger its the only way ill be able to sleep at night
