I dontfucking get this.
The vast majority of normies simply want to ignore politics and stream movies they may or may not have paid for. now it's a felony, endangering the careers of every streamer that uses music. Are these guys not understanding that they're poking the frog they had dead to rights in the pot? If trump cucks theres going to be blood. There might be blood even if hes in office thanks to this shit show. 45 days I guess.
That's the point. It is stupid, and disruptive. The classic heb trick is to have the enemy (any nornal person) remove the 'problem' (blackmailed peons) and give even more power to (((them))) just because with a smile.
They are finalizing moving into the new world order soon. They placed their bets with china, and have operatives just in case in other countries including here in the US if things don't go exactly anything to their guidelines.
This also does one more thing. It starts to break up the free flow of information. When shit starts to happen and muckrakers reapear they could be nailed with this. It's the fear that will stop a large amount of that ingormation from going public. It sows chaos and confusion just a little longer. It is unanimously bad for a reason to rally against its removal. Every platform that can afford to have copyrights before hand is in their pocket, anyone else will be pushed out.>>295472
It's almost funny with how horribly true that is. Gamers that stream would be liable for this bullshit and dragged through the mud.
The current group in touch with technology, and meme culture that poked around too much is now going to be hit again.
They've been poking gamers since the beginning. They'll keep doing to till the end. The main reason is because they can, and a built in complex of issues that compel them to irritate everyone to put that reason mildly.
But most gamers are fucking left. Not sjw left but more than nominally soy as fuck
They wouldn't have fought. Now they very well might.
Jews fear whites having a space where they are free to discuss media and compete fairly. Eventually people start "jokingly" saying "CRUSADE HOLY INFIDEL HERESY" stuff or WW2 stuff and that damages the "visceral disgust reaction" programmed into kids in school. If white people are allowed to think critically they will eventually realize what is wrong with the lies they were taught. Jews want the whole world to think "hitler bad" and "hitler is the ultimate insult".

Big question. What about hermaphrodite's with working both parts? Where does that fall?
Some men are born with three arms or no arms. Mutant exceptions to the rules and insane brainwashed fetish creeps bent on trying to become exceptions to the rules don't disprove the rules when it comes to the genetic and biological basis of sex and """gender"""

I don't think a single one of those ever existed outside of old wive's tales where women claim they knew a bitch who knew a bitch whose kid was born with both so the parent got to choose because yaaaay surgery on kids. Think about it reallistically for a second. Porn companies and Ellen Degenerate-style shows would be all over that "guy" if futas really existed. Remember when they gave a TV special (or was it a movie?) to a man with comically oversized "ten stone testicles"? Absurdly fat people get shows about them that seek to normalize their behaviour or make a spectacle out of them or beg for your pity. If there was ever any evidence that lefties were right to hate the scientific facts of biological sex, it would be crammed down our throats like the TV's fictional friendly niggers.
hermaphrodites exist although its super rare. but never will both parts be working. hermaphoridtes are almost always sterile. although sometimes the ovaries work but balls dont
Is it biologically impossible for a creature to have both sets of parts and their reproductive functions?
Impossible? Who knows, nature is a bitch. But see if you can find a historical precedent for it occurring. Will wait.
this Anon knows what he is talking about.
No, there are plenty of true hermaphrodites in natures, there are even actual sex changes.
Just not in mammals.
And then there's Androgen insensitivity syndrome and various other hormonal mutations that give rise to huge clits, tiny dicks, and man boobs.
I called this back in August and am disappointed I was right.
Check out the twitter link. Its full of leftists freaking out over it.
You guys hear about the new SOPA?https://www.inputmag.com/culture/new-internet-sex-bill-could-hurt-sex-workers-the-most>The bill, which is known as the Stop Internet Sexual Exploitation Act (SISEA), was brought to the Senate by Senators Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.). It seeks to create overarching standards to which every sex-work platform on the internet would be held.>Included in the bill’s provisions is a robust and severely limiting video verification process: users who upload pornographic material to a public website would need to verify their identity with the site, and every person in the video would need to sign and submit a consent form. Sites would also need to offer 24-hour support services and take down reported content within two hours of it being flagged.>SISEA would also put an enormous amount of pressure on all websites that host sexual content. Pornhub is obviously the biggest target here, but other sites like Reddit, Patreon, OnlyFans, and smaller indie sites would be affected too. In the face of new pressure, these sites might face a tough decision: take resource-heavy measures to comply, or remove pornographic material entirely. Like Tumblr, Craiglist and other services has done, many will simply ban adult content, leaving some people without potential revenue from those channels.
I'm kind of indifferent to this shit, especially with so many "content creators" dropping pony content in the past few years. Would hurt everyone else (especially 3D smut peddlers) more than us.
Would it be possible to get the sluts on OnlyFans pissed off about this?
Also does the bill say reported content needs to be taken down in two hours even if the content complies with the consent form bullshit?
If this does end up in law, is getting people pissed off about this and ready to use Tor sites the govt cant touch the backup plan?
Slippery slope applies to all powers delegated to the government.
>>299354>Would it be possible to get the sluts on OnlyFans pissed off about this?
no. Women are not capable of political commentary. they will not say anything that will put their social media in jeapordy. you might get a few, but most will keep eachother in line. it would be better to get them to complain about it in a way that would doubtlessly be hard to censor, but ymmv on weather calling something racist or biggoted will hinder more than help.
I'm a literal tranny here and I don't see where this enters the picture, this guy needs to be shot. Theres a difference between a high functioning mentally ill person and a guy that will wear his daughters flayed skin if he had working testicles. >b-but muh science though
if you want to understand science you will quickly learn that /pol/ is mostly wrong about gender because biology abhors hard defining lines in anything. Everything is at least a little ambiguous, there is no reason to rewrite sensible categories in society however, and LGBT is decrepid and exhibit B in a long list of reasons why science shouldn't be the defining centerpiece of morality.
Yeah but we were the first to get fucked by shit like this and now it will effect our enemies and bystanders. A bunch of ANTIFA accounts got nuked today, for example.

Holy shit. These people are insane. They are really on the level of 'every death is one death too much'. They completely ignore that Covid is mainly a threat for old and ill people (and not even too catastrophic for them) and want to keep children at home. This is just pure weakness. They gladly sacrifice every bit of liberty for a bit of questionable safety. I hate these people so goddamn much. I would not even consider them human anymore.
I don't really visit Twitter anymore because they banned nearly everything that was interesting and so I don't really 'see' such people anymore and that's honestly something great. But everytime I visit these disgusting bubbles and know that they have real power via proxy I just get mad.

In a materialistic world, almost nothing is seen to be worse than death. Meaning everyone runs to mommy when the going gets tough, who will be there to nurture people and foster social cohesion well past the time when they should be leaving the nest, at the expense of getting anything done. The meme virus has a strange resemblance to the environmental worship IMO as well in that the nurturing attitude of materialistic women is misdirected towards public policy, with the real effect of it being to throw a wrench in whatever the men are supposed to be doing to move society forward. They use statistics to prove that they feel bad about getting some oil on a pelican, which obviously turns out to have disastrous consequences.
I don't know, I'm actually okay with keeping schools shut down for as long as possible. Covid is pretty harmless for the most part, but at the same time public schools are just leftist indoctrination centers. Anything that keeps kids away from them should be extended for as long as possible. I've actually been a little jealous of school-aged kids during this thing; if a pandemic had happened the last couple years I was in high school my whole life might have turned out different.
It's actually going to be pretty funny watching Biden handle the Coronahoax from here on out. They got everyone whipped into a panic over what is basically a slightly worse than average flu season just to get Orange Man Bad out of office, but now that he's out they still have this panic they created to deal with. They're in a rather uncomfortable position at the moment because if they keep everything shut down there are going to be real economic consequences that even the most clueless normalfag is going to notice. At the same time though they've got everyone terrified of this mostly harmless virus, and if they try to open things up too early the normalfags will freak out and thing the black death is descending upon them. They really wrote themselves into a corner on this one, imo.>>299371

Google and Facebook have tussled with publishers for years over how they display their content, with media companies arguing the tech giants should pay them for the privilege. Critics of the two tech firms point out that since they dominate the online advertising business, it puts news publishers in a bind and leaves them scrambling for leftovers.>Both American tech companies have been vehemently opposed to the code since its introduction last summer.

Mr. Bond arrested for thought crimes
Nazi rapper "Mr. Bond" arrested in Carinthiahttps
jewgle translated:https://archive.fo/wip/5WP6U>The assassin von Halle heard from him when the attack was made; the musician is said to have also translated and published the Christchurch hate pamphlet.>The protection of the constitution and the police have investigated the right-wing extremist rapper "Mr. Bond" and arrested him in Carinthia. His anti-Semitic, racist and xenophobic songs, which glorify National Socialism, are extremely popular in the right-wing extremist scene. The Halle assassin heard a number from "Mr. Bond" during his attack. The Carinthian from Paternion is also said to have translated and published the hate pamphlet of the Christchurch assassin.>Protection of the constitution had the man or his texts on the screen for several months. Now the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution and the Fight against Terrorism (BVT) and the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution and the Fight against Terrorism (LVT) Carinthia were able to research the rapper who had been spreading his neo-Nazi songs for years without being recognized. He was found in the municipality of Paternion in the Villach-Land district.>There, on January 20, BVT, LVT and the State Criminal Police Office carried out a house search together with the police, initiated by the Vienna Public Prosecutor's Office. Data carriers, weapons, a Reich war flag, Nazi devotional objects, song texts and a small mixer were discovered. "Mr. Bond" was arrested and transferred to the Klagenfurt prison.
Other songs stolen as a template>The Vienna Public Prosecutor's Office is investigating him under the Prohibition Act (production and dissemination of Nazi ideas) and incitement. She accuses him of having published songs on the Internet and on CDs under his pseudonym since at least 2016. The Carinthian used music from other artists for his songs. Therefore, according to the Interior Ministry, he is also threatened with consequences for copyright infringement.>Music and concerts play a central role in the neo-Nazi scene today, including when it comes to recruiting young people. "Relevant music can ... often also serve as an introduction to the milieu. In addition, concerts are suitable for making a significant contribution to the financing of the scene," says the 2019 report on the protection of the constitution "combined in which the otherwise rather heterogeneous scene gathers. This, however, on an international level, in Austria such large concerts are consistently banned.>"Right-wing extremism has taken on many faces and forms - it is all the more important to actively promote the confrontation with the atrocities of National Socialism," said Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) on the occasion of the rapper's arrest. The fight against right-wing extremism - no matter what form it takes - is part of our historical responsibility.

It's about the insult, so yeah. Rationalists have nothing to gain from being "virtuous" in private.
Rationalists? Eliezer Yudowsky's lot?
Never heard of him, but looks like he wrote a fanfic about Harry Potter and the Scientific Method, so probably.
By rationalism I mean those that "heckin love science" and deny the existence of God based on the fact that you can't prove it logically. They try to apply a cold logic to everything and end up neglecting emotions and spirituality as a result.
By that you obviously mean 'Yehoshua' the not-chosen one when there were thousands of rabbis with the same exact name crucified on Roman tropaeiums for sedition, rape, murder, slavery, etc. etc. etc., whom was supposed to be named 'Immanuel', ie: 'Yimmanuel'? Try harder to learn your own half-jew history next time, britmutt, maybe you'll get somewhere.
Call that scientism. You're praising them by even suggesting they're rational. Pure rationality is a good thing, but they just submit to an "authority" called science because of social reasons, not rational.
>>301512>You're praising them by even suggesting they're rational.
By connotation only, of course. Scientismists I would consider to be rationalist and reductionist materialists, solely based upon the fact that they take the philosophical position (wittingly or much more likely unwittingly) that the world can only be described in empirical and materialistic terms. The end result being that they often act engage in acts of degeneracy based upon the fact that if they think that nobody else can see them, then that implies they're free to do whatever they want, because there won't be any consequences to their actions ("it's not hurting anyone" comes to mind). The logic is broken, but to rationalize is the mark of a rationalist.
Not only that but rationalization is a flawed coping mechanism, and so they tend to have a lot of unresolved emotional issues to boot, meaning they tend to behave irrationally, and you can rationalize any type of behavior. Anything; so they often get themselves in a lot of trouble because they figure they've put enough thought into it and it's all for the best anyway. Dostoyevsky called these types out in Crime and Punishment. They often behave very irrationally, I agree.>Pure rationality is a good thing
It is often very useful, but I really think there's more to life.
Rationalism means gaining truths through pure reason instead of empirical evidence. It's legitimate to a certain extent, and it's is a method that a lot of scholars have tried to use in favour of a god, and generally more philosophical topics. It's completely unrelated to scientism, the treatment of science as a religion. Science is not rationalist, it's almost entirely empiricist.
You can be a rationalist, an empiricist, or a combination of both, and be materialist, a dualist, or pluralist. It's also wrong that they can do what they want from a completely materialist perspective anyway, since actions have consequences and they might be overall negative or positive. They justify it irrationally and arbitrarily with the morality that says "they can do what they want" but then make random exceptions like "you can't be racist". It's not a problem with rationalism, empiricism, or materialism.>and you can rationalize any type of behavior
That's using the term like "justify" or "cope", it doesn't have anything to do with mental or epistemological rationality.>It is often very useful, but I really think there's more to life.
Sure, but it's the only real start. Things you can't logically deduce you need to figure out empirically, Everything is either inner reasoning or external senses filtered through inner reasoning. Only way to arrive at anything else would be subjectivist epistemology, which isn't something you can actually argue with someone else about without being self-contradictory.
Just responding to the image. Race can be both a real set of phenotype clusters, coupled with a social construct. For example, what counts as "white" is different in different times and places, so whiteness is partially socially constructed; who counts as a given race and what trait combinations are important change over time. On top of that, clusters in the gene pool themselves shift about over time, and aren't a permanent condition. More subtly, some of what we literally see is heavily influenced by post-processing in the fusiform face area, and this is impacted by upbringing, so even picking out the clusters visually is a suspect method that would be influenced by the social construct aspects of race.
Eliezer's Rationalists worship Elizer first, his weaponized fundamental misconceptions about how AI works second, and thirdly their dogmatic belief that paying Elizer to think about AI and blogpost about "maximum efficient morality" will ensure whoever develops the godlike all-seeing all-controlling AI that inevitably conquers us first will hopefully use Eliezer's musings on morality and efficiency to guide itself.
Fourth comes the worship of other experts, but only ones that seem legit because they have many TV show appearances or college-awarded degrees or agree with Eliezer.

>>301538>It's legitimate to a certain extent, and it's is a method that a lot of scholars have tried to use in favour of a god, and generally more philosophical topics. It's completely unrelated to scientism, the treatment of science as a religion.
Agreed, some level of rationality must surely be applied.
However, scientismists, as I understand, tend to proceed as though from the assumption that scientific fact is undisputed from a rationalistic sense, since it has the backing of statistical methodology and therefore some kind of deductive, rational truth, regardless of if it actually does or not. In other words, I have a gut feeling that you might be pressed to find a worshiper of science to agree with you that scientific knowledge proceeds in a nonlinear fashion as claimed by Kuhn, since that could cast doubt on the claim that science is by nature progressive and based on objective fact. Please note that I had not claimed that their theories or worldviews were consistent. For now, I might stand by my claim that they're rationalists, but poor ones at that.>It's also wrong that they can do what they want from a completely materialist perspective anyway, since actions have consequences and they might be overall negative or positive. They justify it irrationally and arbitrarily with the morality that says "they can do what they want" but then make random exceptions like "you can't be racist". It's not a problem with rationalism, empiricism, or materialism.>That's using the term like "justify" or "cope", it doesn't have anything to do with mental or epistemological rationality.
Perhaps we're talking past each other here, since admittedly the definitional nature of a lot of these terms are beyond me at least to some degree, and I do know that philosophers tend to get very technical with that.
However, from a behavioristic standpoint, it would seem to make intuitive sense that anyone that believes that truth derives from only rationality would be able to justify to themselves whatever behavior they get up to, much like the programming of a computer, and that's by no means praise. Again, I'm trying to say that first comes belief, second comes the broken logic that they use to try and make it sound rational enough to themselves. It has at the very least a warped axiomatic basis, and they're really bad at being rationalistic philosophers, but if you asked one whether or not they believed they were acting in a rational fashion and that science and math were the two things that could allow someone to glimpse into the objective, then I'm guessing they would say yes.>Things you can't logically deduce you need to figure out empirically, Everything is either inner reasoning or external senses filtered through inner reasoning.
Was it not Nietzche that said one could stand to gain as much truth from the awestruck at the beauty of a work of art, just as much as an empirical truth or the logical deduction based upon certain philosophical axioms which one believed to be true? Maybe I need to read some more of his work, but he never struck me as a rationalist. In fact I think he's often placed in the continental school.
All in good fun.

>Up To 4 Million Texans Without Power as Electricity Grid Collapses and Wind Turbines Fail
Posted on February 16, 2021 by Sundance>Forty percent of Austin residents are without power, and up to a total of four million Texas residents are suffering under extreme cold conditions as the state power grid is overwhelmed. Making matters worse, a shortage of natural gas combined with failures of most wind turbines due to ice and freezing temperatures have dropped power generation.https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2021/02/16/up-to-4-million-texans-without-power-as-electricity-grid-collapses-and-wind-turbines-fail/https://twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/status/1361420690205728768
