Re: The Peer Review Process Broken? Or Working as Intended?

i'm reading an essay right now called The Referendum (about a different topic) and this passage specifically illustrates my point about youth / students in college and how drastically their ideas can change once they leave: ... Young adulthood is an anomalous time n people's lives; they're as unlike...

Re: The Peer Review Process Broken? Or Working as Intended?

i do get that this is a major social & ideological battle between two extreme opposite points of view, but guess what - the US is also never going to be some ultra-right / libertarian fantasy world either. what makes this country great (*cough* or what USED to) is that between the two ends of th...

Re: The Peer Review Process Broken? Or Working as Intended?

i actually tend to like Boghossian a lot of times. but this stunt is disingenuous at the core. again, the ONLY thing it proves is that *some* people are gullible. and not just 'the left'... i've seen plenty of literature from different angles on this including the original skeptic article. and i've ...

Re: The Peer Review Process Broken? Or Working as Intended?

sorry but this is complete bollocks, ya'll. dig a tad deeper... this spells it out ( from pretty much the only Libertarian blog i enjoy reading /nod ) After the revelation that a paper on “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct” was submitted as a hoax to the journal Cogent Social Sciences there...

Re: What Happens Next -- A Drumpf Presidency w/ Republican Controlled Congress

ahhh i see. so instead of admitting they fucked up, that Drumpf conned them and the voters, and actually handling their disaster like they're supposed to do as they've been voted into office for - you know, like, running a government & whatnot - and since Drumpf isn't doing all they had hoped fo...

Re: Passive income

I've got a few single page sites with adsense on. Not a massive amount of passive income but it would be enough for food if things went bad with the job.

Re: Political Parties and their Philosophies

from the War on Reality Thread , a bit of a debate as to whether or not Fascism is a right or left-wing ideology: Wow, this is some Orwellian shit. Google and Bing have changed the definition of the word "fascism" to mark it as a partisan, "Right Wing" form of government only... ...

Re: THE WAR ON REALITY

books - real books you can smell and feel - are indeed wonderful. BUT let's not forget they can also still be twisted, out-dated, and very misleading. "history" has often been demonstrated to be little more than the preferred version of events selected for the masses by the "rulers&qu...

Re: What Happens Next -- A Drumpf Presidency w/ Republican Controlled Congress

Calls for Article V to be invoked are being balked at by the Democrats. Hmmm, but if you're so sure that you won the popular vote in November, why aren't you sure that if you gave the power back to the people 100% you wouldn't get everything that you've ever dreamed of? At this point I think it's e...

Re: THE WAR ON REALITY

As for the fascism definition: it is traditionally viewed as a right-wing ideology, despite the fact that it borrows much from both the traditional left and right. It is lazy as shit to say that it's a necessarily right-wing idea although the way 'fascist' is used today as a pejorative term for som...

If we want to undo this damage and heal the divide we need to create a culture in which Journalism is seperated from both advertising influence and political influence. It needs to become a seperate and neuteral pillar of society. so true. like Feyd mentions, that only seems to be happening online ...
