Pinned toot

So, maybe it's time to introduce myself.
My real name's Hansi. I'm a part of the tumblr exodus. I'm a commie-anarcho-individualist-feminist-democratic confederalist-animal liberationist. I'm an Ásatrú practitioner. I'm bisexual and polyamorous. I'm a philosophy undergrad, currently writing my bachelor's thesis on the right to health. I have a dog. Her name is Stella. I love Doctor Who, beer and folk punk, and I hate Nazis.

being a loyal bernie supporter doesn't mean ignoring the bad parts of bernie's base. it does however mean confronting them.

What, and I can not stress this enough, the fuck.

@RadioAngel @GwenfarsGarden @puffinus_puffinus there is a larger problem. Nothing incentives conflict resolution and peer mediation here. The default is always to burn it down and run away.

Optimism isn't about pretending everything's fine, it's about stubbornly insisting on making things better.

The arch of history is long and bends towards justice because we're gonna fuckin make it do that, damn it

Joe Biden's entire political platform is "My best friend is black."

Change my mind.

I really like waking up and finding the end of an argument here. Having to go backwards through a conversation to figure out what the heck happened is very convenient. This website is designed in a very clever way.

hot take, politics 

New rule: you don't get to discourage people from participating in electoral politics unless you can point them in the direction if other viable political participation.

Politics 

Bernie needs to shore up his weakness with older voters. Maybe show pictures of his grandkids at a speech. Tell long stories that don't go anywhere. Unveil a "universal your grandkids will call you" plan.

In seriousness, maybe he could explain why young people like him so much. Because they're just trying to have a life.

Talk about the younger people whose parents will never have grandkids because of the awful economic conditions they live in.

hot take, pol, fascism 

Opposing fascism by 'any means necessary' sometimes means voting against it.

"Don't let all that talk of wealth redistribution fool you. Don't you know that Robin Hood is himself an aristocrat?"

Occam's razor is a heuristic convenience, not a proof.

Let me repeat that: Occam's razor proves nothing. Occam's razor is a heuristic rule of thumb in order to select the most convenient explanation out of a plurality of explanations. It is not a proof. It is not a support for a proof. It is not a means of arriving at a proof. It is not a means of accessing objective truth. It has nothing to do with the scientific method.

Occam's razor is not a proof. Remember: Occam's razor is not a proof.

My biggest promblem with moderates isn't really my disagreement with them on the issues. It's that they're bad negotiators. They're so committed to the idea of politics as the art of compromise (which isn't a wholly wrong understanding of politics) that they present their idea of a good compromise as their first offer.

US pol 

Electoral reform is going to be a necessary part of the democratic socialist project and that goes far beyond abolishing the electoral college. The entire structure of how the US does elections (one officeholder per constituency and first past the post elections) is absolutely terrible and eliminates any chance of a multi party system.
