Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

A lot of them are terrible...showing diversity or spreading "the message" is being used as a substitute for a plot. Studios are all in on using the "anyone that doesn't like the movie/series must be racist/sexist" as part of their marketing strategy. I like watching the Critical Drinker on youtube. ...

Re: What makes your life worth living?

A philosophical question. Philosophers usually reply that it is thought itself that makes life worth living. Wisdom, reflection, values ​​and their worth, morals and ethics come only through time, resonance and the leisure to take a step back from today's hectic zeitgeist. And then the adventure be...

Re: Why do Christians like the antichrist so much?

It's been awhile since I've read the bible, but I'm pretty sure it preaches against the antichrist. So why do so many Christians like Donald Trump? Do they justify it by saying Clinton or Biden is worse than the antichrist? Extreme religiousness tends towards cultism. Trumpism is a cult. People dra...

Re: Medical Experts

What nonsense are you talking about? "Big pharma" had absolutely zero power to "enforce people take their drugs". These decisions were made by governments based on what they believed was the right decision to protect the populace. You may disagree with the decisions (and certainly these mandates sta...

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

I think we can overstate the importance of this decision. This doesn't ban abortion in any way shape or form. All it does is not stop states from banning abortion. I'm pretty sure that actually, No. Several states already have laws on the books which ban abortions, but only on condition that Roe be...

The thing that set the US back 50 years was Roe vs. Wade itself. It stopped the process of gradually loosening abortion restrictions tha...

Inflation worldwide is terrible of course. I saw a story from Australia yesterday where people were cutting the stalks off the broccoli to save money (the broccoli was $11.99AUD/kg).

Stocks were vastly overvalued due to all the liquidity pumped into the system...so I am not too worried about their fall (so far).

I am really feeling the schadenfraude as I watch crypto prices sink. It is like the force and I can feel it flowing through me. I am loving it.

Does that make me a bad person?

Re: Fluminator made a weird post about gay people

reliable gays deep in the culture Are these gays independently certified by a reputable assessment bureau? I think these reputable assessment bureaus must be only in the UK? If they are in the US, they don't have very high standards. Allegedly 30% of millenials identify as LGBTQ and almost 40% of G...

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Certain anti-abortion activists in the US make it appear that women are having abortion on a whim right up to the point of birth ("I will have a big mac, fries and an abortion of my 8 month old fetus"). But there are many potential reasons why an abortion could be necessary after three months: (1) M...
