Idk where else to put this as it isn't worth it's own thread... Facebook stock tumbled close to 20% overnight... Down 40 dollars and with a snap of your fingers Mark Zuckerburg lost $20B.

Apparently "user growth was bad." Which makes sense since Facebook is apparently really unpopular among the current young'ins. Instagram was supposed to be their hedge against that, but clearly it hasn't worked well enough for now.

Idk theres something about pre judging people youve never met and referring to them as those idiots who rely on family farms that doesnt scream dignity or respect to me.

 

Very hypocritical .

 

Theres a point where you have to practice what you preach otherwise nobody is going to take you seriously.

Farmers also feel the brunt of high taxes, too, so they're naturally going to be conservative. Either we take out huge loans and make consistent purchases for business or we hand Uncle Sam a ridiculous amount of the money we earned.

 

Either maintain debt or have most of your money stolen from you. Pretty shitty.

 

And yeah, treating other humans with respect and dignity involves compelled perspectives and trained thought. Treating other humans with respect and dignity involves disrupting speeches by conservatives with petulant, childish outbursts and narcissism driven, ironic "marches." Treating other humans with respect and dignity involves hurling terms like "Nazi" and "White Supremacist" at any individual we disagree with, especially when the facts side with their perspectives.

 

Come up for air, blots.

The ones who voted for donald trump because they thought he'd solve their problems? They're dumb. What should I say? He was so obviously lying in 2016 and he's done exactly what it was obvious he'd do. If you fell for that, you're dumb. Not to mention this assumes they voted for him out of "economic anxiety" which is basically a meme at this point. They voted for an idiot racist to be president. Did you even click that "paradox of tolerance" link?

This is the least self-aware thing I've ever read. Simply astounding.

The paradox of tolerance is stupid for a number of reasons. This is not to say we should not tolerate each other because we'll...we have too.

 

The first reason is because in that link and in poppers other written works he maintains the standard of tolerance is a criteria arbitrarily interpreted by societal norms. Not conducive to minorities or people with different idieas getting their own shake really.

 

The second is that the paradox of tolerance is a paradox of a paradox because it allows people be intolerant carte blanche because it is justified by standing your ground, and is covered under an umbrella of of tolerance. So really the intolerant are intolerant but it's ok because other people are. There is no tolerance there at all.

 

The third is that it completely neglects the fact that there is no hard proof of subjective feelings. You can't prove how you feel is the right way to do things with any sort of definitive evidence. So without a starting point to all agree on it is left up to the individual to interpret societal norms. Which in it of itself means that the collective is separate individuals who interpret everything different, so there is no starting point to "norms".

 

If we go by that transgenders don't have rights because they are normal and animals don't chew off their genitals, so really they are the only things on Earth that dispute their born gender.

 

I have encountered this argument several times and what it is, is for people to be an asshole but absolve themselves because "society would approve." Which in this case is obviously not the case because the majority of people thought Trump would be better, so are the people who voted for him the people who set societal standards? If that's the case you are the intolerant one.

 

....Weird.

I've heard and read about it before. I think you are the one who needs to do some reading. Popper is clearly talking about the extremes of intolerance and how they should not be tolerated.

 

He isn't talking about farmers in the Midwest.

 

You're applying something you don't understand to people you don't understand.

 

You might be worse than Trump.

 

EDIT: Thinking about it more, I think that paradox applies more to you. You are literally one of the most intolerant people I have ever "met". Anywhere. Real life, internet... I think it applies to you, because it is our duty to call you out on that. We shouldn't be tolerant of your obvious and radical intolerance otherwise we will all fall to your intolerant ways. You are who Popper is talking about. The irony is so thick.. ha.

Also, there is talk of Trump possibly lifting the federal ban on marijuana. Getting to be louder and louder talk too. If it happens, he will probably use it as a chip during his re-election. Or maybe even midterms.

And the fact that they called him a "risky" proposition is because they are stupid. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together could tell what he was. But they're dumb. If they weren't dumb, they wouldn't have needed Hillary to spoon-feed them reasons as to why trump was going to be unable to deliver on what he said he would. It was obvious to not-dumb people.

 

 

Look man, I'm with you but this is the reason Dems are losing with labor/workers. There's a big difference between an information gap and being stupid. I imagine being a farmer is way fucking harder than you think and I'm not just talking physically. To be fair to Hillary it's not entirely her fault that Democrats aren't reaching working class people. She's not the only person who took the party as far right as it is today although she is a major culprate.

Republicans cannot afford to be against Net Neutrality AND weed can they? Idk man the Democrats are so dumb and corrupt they might just pull it off. :yao: Edited by seanbrock

Between the WikiLeaks releases and what Trump's financial guy could reveal and what Manafort could reveal we could really have the ammunition for a real political revolution. We're starting to see it already. Here's hoping this troubled time leads to a better future.

Incels are dumb but people talk about toxic masculinity as if that's the inherent problem. It's a symptom of a few things, all of which also contribute to piece of shit female human beings as well.

 

I can recognize there are societal factors at play with that behavior but the majority of men aren't even close to that pathetic, tells me it has more to do with how those individuals grew up (parenting, how they socialized at school, how those two things affected their interpretation of the aforementioned societal factors, possibly how their genetics affected all those things... So complex).

 

I don't take the term toxic masculinity seriously. I saw a movie preview that highlighted it will have a lot of "taboo" concepts, including "toxic masculinity" and "fragile male egos". The irony behind the last one is precious. Plenty of people are insecure and they make that other people's problems but again, the majority of men aren't shitbags. Just another term to reinforce victim culture.

Toxic Masculinity is just another thing that doesn't actually exist. Unless someone can tell me what Toxic Femininity is, Toxic Masculinity doesn't exist.

 

If one pole exists, so does the other.

 

Half of the topics discussed in today's world, especially by liberal voters, are fabricated, vague, all-encompassing terms that we can't even study and correct. Because they're not actually real. You know your perspective is flawed when you have to turn to made up, un-provable terminology as the basis of your argument. It's their religion, for Pete's sake.

Maybe first we should discuss what masculine is. If toxic masculinity means you're basically a bully then yeah we could do without that. I just can't get behind the idea of it being a bad thing to be a man.

It's a multi-faceted concept, but it has to be so they can apply it to strictly men. If it just meant a guy is a bully...well there are bullies/abusers among both sexes.

 

And it's only a bad thing to be a man until a woman actually wants a mate. Then she wants that dominant male type. At no point in human history will most women be fucking the doormat males worshiping at their feet.

The term has roots in what people describe as traits expected of men that are harmful to both men and women. That's a fair term imo, and there's the argument that there are traits "expected" of women that are harmful for both sexes. That doesn't necessarily mean you have to agree with the terms, but those applications aren't so far fetched.

 

But that's not how they're used. A dude is an asshole now and it's because society promotes "toxic masculinity". No, the dude is just an asshole. A classic example of people warping a term and applying it's stigma across the entire demographic. Same thing happens with feminism. Not all, and in fact most feminists I know, are the toxic shitters you see ranting about patriarchy and toxic masculinity. But some of them have warped the term.

 

Kinda looking at it from both sides. People broadstroke men a lot these says, but especially with movements like MGTOW and MRA I see them applying the same bullshit logic to women.

No, I get how these terms came to be. I just don't think these are real phenomenons so much as, like you mentioned, assholes and bad people.

There are shitty realities of our world that we want answers to. So we make up answers. Toxic Masculinity isn't a real thing. That doesn't mean we can't attempt to raise children better collectively, but there will always be the dregs at the bottom of the cup.
