Hi, I'm a reddit refugee. I like punk, scifi, radical politics, science, social science, and grand strategy games. I'm still figuring out how to use this website. Give me your usage tips and other suggestions!

The amount of willfully obtuse white people in here is staggering. Did anyone engage with the secondary sources the author provided? Or would we rather be upset that maybe some of the things we take for granted might be at the expense of marginalized groups? Jeez laweez...
This is almost the definition of pure evil. Why aren't people like this confronted with the reality of their evil every possible chance? I mean, Paul Ryan's life's work is making sure poor people suffer as much as possible.
For real. WaPo is being super shady about all of this, especially this article that makes it seem like the FBI and CIA have a consensus about Russia trying to get Trump elected, when in fact it does not say that and eventually hinges on some flimsy source.
Apple has been making it harder and harder for me to find the root of my filesystem on their OS for years. No wonder people don't know how to do this.
And god forbid I want to manage the files on my god damn iPhone.
Those of us in the audio community continue to be furious at this change. How is 3.5mm not thin enough for these people! It used to be a quarter inch and we slimmed that down for you in the 80s!
I don't understand why this is such a big deal. Because he admitted it? Mod edits have been around as long as there have been BBS as far as I was aware (I first got online in 98). He's the site admin. I assume every post I ever write on any website can be altered.
It doesn't seem to me that Trump voters have anti-elite or pro-poor attitudes based on who they voted for. I just feel like we're beyond the point of compromise. One side is amenable to reason and understand facts; the other is entrenched and "post-truth". I've been hoping for (and calling for) my entire adult life a presidential candidate who's primary issue is poverty. The last time we had that was Jimmy Carter (I think, I wasn't alive). I was very pro-John Edwards in 2008 because that was his signature issue. I dunno. With republican congresses, I have no idea how any positive legislation is going to get passed ever. I'm frustrated to the point of revolt.
I have come to realize that my thing that I refuse to believe after being presented evidence is that people won't believe things when they are presented evidence. I've seen it on the internet for sure, but I have never run in to it in person if I can remember. I've had my view changed in a conversation; I've seen people's view changed when presented with evidence IRL, but it's hard for me to believe someone adamantly refusing in the face of something stark.
I'm curious, can you mention any programs that lead to "more government" or that didn't involve financial incentives that haven't worked? I can't think of any.
My hypothesis is that they "choose" the most hurtful arenas because they actually hate other people- they get some sort of satisfaction knowing they are getting something other people aren't or are "sticking it" to certain sectors of society. It sounds ridiculous but I'm starting to believe it more and more every day.
Because they effect everybody, rather than certain classes. Also, everyone is pretty much on the same side with those issues. Everyone wants the economy to be doing well, not everyone wants abortion to be legal.
