it's unreal the way they complain about outrage culture while completely steeped in every form of media hell bent on riling themselves up about how white men are under attack (literally what was being said in a podcast he was listening to first thing in the morning while visiting) and it leaves them constantly on-edge

when he comes by I just try to distract him with games & shows but it's useless, he can't stop zoning back out for hours checking back to the discord groups, podcasts, youtube videos, and social media comments sections, all while calling everyone a sheep while he's the carbon-copy clone of every terminally online alt-righter on the web.

meanwhile he's complained to my sister that I'm not friendly enough to him anymore and he thinks it's because of the hormones, jfc


No offense to your bro, but it sounds like he needs to, get a job get a life. It might seriously do wonders for him!

tbh it's probably a good thing that he can't TA anymore, which is why he's gonna have to move back home with our mom next month

he'd sometimes be marking papers here and complaining about mentions of racism or discrimination, or he'd explicitly get more critical if they mentioned COVID

He's literally got JP merchandise (some dumb lobster shirt)

in an insta post he posed with it with some nonsense about trolling the libs and gloating that his professor supposedly has a connection to him

He tried to keep it light last year, because of me he'd say "sure his opinions on trans issues are silly but the rest is really smart," citing how "overblown" the patriarchy is -- "fun" note my brother has a long history of harassing his ex-girlfriends, and I mean that I straight-up caught him creating multiple fake emails to threaten a non-responsive ex who at the time had already broken up with him for half a year. He was literally whining about hotmail repeatedly botchecking him, which is what got me notice what the hell he was doing.

More accurately, their view on the left is formed entirely on what the right tells them about the left, which is how you get the groomer discourse. Nobody's actually listening to the left here, and when engaged with, they are primed for offense. That's what labelling everything as woke sjw shit is meant to do and you can see this from their gut reactions to media featuring minority members or any time a woman asserts dominance over a man.

Using my brother as an example he can't even handle sarcastic references to feminism in comedy without taking it as a serious threat. In literally Taskmaster NZ there was a prize task for "best green thing", and one woman brought a statue of the Green M&M lady and touted it up as a feminist icon and my brother took it seriously, scoffing how there's always gotta be a feminist on the shows. Then a guy brought out a female member of the Green Party and an opponent knocked it down as dehumanizing to bring a women as a "best thing" and my brother went livid at how there's nothing dehumanizing about calling people a thing. Like holy crap dude it's a comedy show, you've seen plenty episodes where contestants try to make up significance or drag their rivals down on any technicality they can grasp, why are you taking this to be serious feminist debate??? Literally a green m&m statue holy shit man.

Shang-Chi as well of course he had to scoff at Shang-Chi mentioning an experience dealing with racist bullies, reactively spouting "oh yeah sure THAT really happened"....... it's a fictional movie with magic dragons god dammit. Watching any media with my brother is an absolute minefield since you never know when when he's gonna get triggered by any hints of social progressivism.
I dont want to sound too mean here since its your family, but your bro seems like a jerk. A huge reason I had to leave that space was people exactly like this.

I think people view themselves as moderate on most issues but socially cool which the right wing is not, and the more religious and lame and judgmental they seemed, the more liberal people felt like they were.

around the time that the tea party came into power it seems like the stance became less pro-god and more anti-progressive.

im sure I could have worded this better

Does it not bother you that your example is a random city renaming a school.

Like think about it. It's just a school name. It has no real impact on anyone's life. Like... can you try to step outside of yourself and realize even comparing the two is utterly batshit insane?

It's not a random city, it's a far left city and it's a public event the same way right wingers say things publicly vs what they do privately

Do you think you would be comfortable being a moderate history teacher in a school where the message is George Washington was a bad person because he owned slaves?

Yes? People are morally grey all the time. That is the tapestry of any place. Washington did a lot of great things for this country but as a person who loves history there is no need to overlook the bad things. I would gladly debate anyone who said "Washington was all bad" just as much as I could debate someone who said "Washington was all good."

By random I mean it is the 17th biggest city in the US and 4th in California. It's a big city but it doesn't really have any importance? Also why are we comparing history teachers comfort to healthcare, poverty, education in GENERAL on a much larger scale, etc.

It's like... I don't understand how your brain works, to be honest. We see people dying and education getting slashed and your example is... a school being renamed.

Like... dude. It's a school name. Of a dead guy. He's going to be okay.

Amusingly relevant study I read about yesterday

https://theindependentwhig.com/haidt-passages/haidt/conservatives-understand-liberals-better-than-liberals-understand-conservatives/

You wonder why conservatives are frustrated when liberals misconstrue and mock their beliefs, and then that anger leads to extremism

Like I don't believe basically anything conservatives believe, but I swear it's the principal skinner meme sometimes of liberals walking around just thinking conservatives have no thoughts or feelings whatsoever confused why some people don't agree with them and they don't win every election

No, I understand perfectly how one gets the mindset to be a conservative. It's when you don't actually read the Bible and take away none of the lessons of Jesus but say his name to downtalk people you don't like or understand.

Conservative views really only become problematic when discussing the 'other' in some way. I get along fine with conservatives when I want to because I believe in God and am as white as milk.

I don't understand you in particular because you are smart enough to play mafia but you are for some god forsaken reason comparing school names to actual serious real world issues and expect anyone to give a fuck

Also I don't really trust that study unless I see the foundations behind it, as that site looks pretty creepy lol.

Because it's stupidly pedantic when nearly everyone who was rich had slaves for thousands of years. Let's rename all the calendar months named after Roman emperors they had slaves. And let's shun going to see pyramids in Egypt, ancient architecture in Europe or Asia.

Might as well state every rich person before 1700 was a bad person and you shouldn't find anything about them positive because they had slaves

Fun fact in my history classes we talked mad shit about the Roman and Egyptian empires because of this. "Wow that's really fucked up."

"Hey he had slaves, let's not name schools after him." sounds like a reasonable take to me. Because the school name is a symbolic gesture and nothing else.

Everyone self-identified their beliefs, and then guessed the beliefs of others based on those same questions.

The thing is, conservatives literally dont understand their own beliefs.

Liberals assumed Conservatives would disagree with Justice is the most important thing because they know Conservatives genuinely love to see non-convicted criminals get gunned down in the street. This isnt exaggeration, they fucking love it.

Liberals see that as being unjust, Conservatives see it as the ultimate justice (and Id argue theyre objectively wrong)

Just about every issue is like this.

Should it be?

Should we go back to the days of Don't Ask Don't tell? The days when the Rodney King Riots were still fresh, and the idea of 'black lives matter' wouldn't even be in its infancy? Progress means that the world will naturally move with it. I'd argue insanity isn't moving with the world. It's clinging to the past, in hopes of maintaining what you consider 'normal'. Our system of morality is evolving. As it should. The human race is growing. And before you go "I'm not a racist! I'm not a homophobe!" I'm not saying you are. I'm reminding you of where we were three decades ago, versus where we are now, and why we are no longer the party of Bill Clinton. Progress. And if anything I'd say we've deified our founding fathers to an extent that's not healthy.

Yeah, Ben Franklin and Thomas Paine are probably the most famous, I think? Franklin had owned slaves, but had become an abolitionist by the time of the founding.

Vermont and Pennsylvania effectively outlawed slavery during the Revolution. Massachusetts did in 1783. Pretty much every state north of Maryland did by 1804 which is well within the lifetime of the Founders.

I mean globally, the UK had outlawed slavery (though not in its colonies) before the Revolution.

Slavery in the ancient world generally was not the same institution we are familiar with. It wasn't so racialized, and slaves had greater rights and legal personhood than they did in New World slavery from the 1500s on.

I would love my country to be like Norway, where the max health care cost per year is $350 and you get 28 vacation days plus paid sick and FMLA.

This is, sadly, impossible. Even if you implemented the laws and policies to do such things, the people would never actually get any of the benefits. You'd just be increasing taxes and no actual change would happen for our living conditions.

I can't imagine there's stuff that would impact his valuation of Twitter that wasn't disclosed to him before they signed that's going to come out now.


Sort of:

It sounds like Twitter did disclose the info but Musk hasn't confirmed it is true yet. I assume Twitter is telling the truth and thus there's no actual problem. I have no idea what happens if it turns out Twitter was lying.

Is it possible they weren't lying and are instead genuinely mistaken

I read that if Musk pulls out, he has to pay Twitter 1 billion USD. Is there a potential scenario here where Musk finds out that the number is higher than 5%, and uses that as an excuse to pull out of the deal without paying up?

I think its extremely likely that hes looking for a way to bail since the Tesla stock he borrowed against has fallen over 25% in value since he made the deal

Slavery in the ancient world generally was not the same institution we are familiar with. It wasn't so racialized, and slaves had greater rights and legal personhood than they did in New World slavery from the 1500s on.

That's what it sounds like to me. That he's looking for an excuse to cancel without penalty and then maybe renegotiate to buy at a lower price. Pretty much all tech stocks have fallen a lot since he made the offer so Twitter's share price without the deal would likely be much lower too.
