Political Compass: Where do you stand? - A subreddit for posting and discussing test results as well as political self-tests and political theory.

2015.06.01 20:59 A strong person stands up for themself; a stronger person stands up for others.

The purpose of this community is to draw attention to reddit's contributions to the growing problem of radicalization on social media. We call for moderators and admins to take responsibility for their roles in the memeification & normalization of bigotry, hate, and violence. "Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing."

2023.06.08 07:53 IrohFroosh Bakit naka hard mode ang pakikipag-date ngayon hahahaha

Dating expi for the past 1 year:
1.) Talked for 3 months, said she liked me, inaya ko siya ng date, ghosted me on the day ng date mismo.
2.) Talked for 1 month, had 2 dates, said goodbye after the 2nd date kase not yet ready emotionally daw.
3.) Talked for 2months, had 1 date, slowly ghosted me after the 1st date and finally said goodbye na after 1 month ng slow ghosting.
4.) Talked for 2 weeks, had 1 date, immediately ghosted me two days after the first date.
5.) Naka match ko sa dating app, sabi niya "reto kita sa friend ko". Saken naman okay lang so bigay ako TG ganun, then a person messaged me sa TG asking me mag swap ng photo. Napa isip ako baket need pa ng photo eh may photo naman ako sa app?? Pero ayon I sent mine, tapos sabi niya "reto kita sa tropa ko trip non mga kulot" hahahaha bruh?? Di manlang nag send ng photo in return, pinasa agad ako sa susunod na tropa huhu very rude. At that point sabe ko pass na. Gagi pinagpasapasahan nako :)))
6.) Naka match ulet sa dating app, swapped soc meds, then gulat ako biglang sabi may BF na raw siya kaya babye na :)))) feel ko nagpalusot lang pero gagi kinabahan ako inunfriend ko nalang agad baka hamunin ako suntukan ng bf sure lose ako sa suntukan HAHAHAHA
Share ko lang lahat yan nangyari in 1 year lang and may 1-2 months interval from each other kase kapagod din dire-diretso. Expi numbers 1 to 3, puro reto lang from friends. Expi 4 I met her here sa reddit. then after 4 nagtry ako dating app baka matino naman doon? Pero hahahahahaha gagi ano nangyari bakit ganito. Dinelete ko na acc ko don sa dating app kase ang ccreepy ng mga tao. Lab ko naman sarili ko. Medyo nasasad lang ako for a few days after mag end yung talking stages, pero oks naman na ulet afterwards.
Lahat naman yan feel ko na the dates went well. Pero at the same time feel ko rin I was too intense parang I try too hard, ie: madaldal sa chats, send reels, memes random posts na medyo spam na huhu etc (honest self-assessment lang). May lesson learned naman after each one. Pero pass na po sa mga leksyon Lord huhu bekenemen. Hays maghintay nalang nga ako ng kdrama moment ko habang nag ggrocery or nasa labas idk hahahahahaha

2023.06.08 07:45 Solidarity_Forever offering: English (native, USA). seeking: Spanish (native) (preferably sin voseo)

English: Hi everybody! I'm 37M, American. I'm at the beginning of a project of improving my Spanish. I took four years in high school and have a lot of informal experience from many years in restaurants. This year I was thinking: it would be a mistake to live my whole life KIND OF knowing Spanish without getting fluent. I take weekly lessons and try every day to write a little, read a little, and listen to a little Spanish. I'd like to add: chat a little. Not important to me what country you're from; my teacher is Colombian, but I'm pretty familiar w Spain Spanish and Mexican Spanish. I want to learn more Latin American Spanish but I'd prefer to avoid el voseo. BUT if you use the voseo and wanna chat, I could make it work. I'm very fond of: cats, books (horror and history are my favorites), exercise, and talking politics or philosophy. I can talk on Discord if any of this is interesting to you. I like teaching people and would like to help you with your English. If you want to do an exchange, send me a message here on Reddit. Thank you!
Español: Hola a todos! Soy 37M estadounidense y estoy al principio de un proyecto de mejorar mi español. Lo estudié en colegio para 4 años, y también tengo experiencia informal de muchos años en restaurantes. Ese año estaba pensando: estaría un error para vivir todo mi Vida con ~un tamaño~ de Español pero sin fluidez. Tomo lecciónes semanales y cada Dia trato a: escribir un poco, Leer un poco, escuchar un poco. Quiero añadir a eso: charlar un poco. A mi no me importa el país de que eres; mi maestra es colombiana, pero estoy bien acostumbrado a español de españa o de mexico. Quiero aprender mas del español latinoamericano; solo prefiero evitar el voseo. Pero si usas voseo y quieres hablar, creo que podría acomodar eso. Me gusta mucho: Gatos, libros (de terror o de historia son mis favoritos), ejercicio, y hablar de política o filosofía. Puedo charlar en Discord si eso se interesa. Me gusta mucho enseñarles a otros y quiero ayudarle con su Ingles. Si quieres hacer un intercambio, dáme un mensaje aquí en Reddit. Gracias!

2023.06.08 07:39 bluelifesacrifice Why I'm a centrist.

The political compass is misleading. It measures what you think a government should generally be in order to... what?
The question when asked about any kind of governing is what is the end goal? What's the means to that end? What are the variables?
Without these questions you have a blind questionnaire having you try to define what you think a good place to live in would be like. Ideals without answers.
Centralism demands the answer to be asked first, what is the goal of the government and what are the resources and problems?
All any kind of government is for is to try and put the right people in power to centralize decision making for resources and policies. The U.S. Constitution was designed with various systems to regulate the government but still have the power to act in a time of war or emergency.
Policies impact society. If you can't consider what those polices will do, you don't know. If you think you do but that very policy that's working in another society is doing the opposite of what you think it should, you need to learn why. What directly and indirectly influences the policy and the outcome?
My stance is a government should be enough do serve society, capable of expanding and reducing as needed depending on the state of the resources and the people within. A government will look different in different places dealing with different problems with different goals.
The one stance I do have is routing and stomping out fraud. There is simply no reason for it. Abuse, waste, bad contracts, ripping people off, misinformation are all examples of fraud and no one should stand for it. Governments should be transparent and empower the people and companies under it's sphere of influence and defense.

2023.06.08 07:39 loimprevisto The State of the Subreddit: Community Moderation & The June 12th Protest

So, you may have noticed that the mod team has been struggling to keep the community focused on original memes and templates lately.
I'd always had a faint hope that we would be able to get u/MemeInvestor_bot running smoothly again and keep it functional, but it looks like it's time to move on. Reddit's proposed changes to 3rd party apps are going to affect bots and other tools that interact with the Reddit APIs, and it looks like our investing bot won't be coming back. I had planned on using the u/QualityVote bot to improve community moderation, but the bot's maintainer has taken it down in protest of the upcoming changes.
At this time, we also plan on joining the protest and taking the subreddit Private for two days on June 12th to 14th. If the QualityVote bot is available after that, we will deploy it to enable users to directly moderate posts and downvote content that doesn't belong here to get it removed. If QualityVote bot is permanently shut down then I'll try to kludge together an automod solution that will do something similar.

2023.06.08 07:32 phantomroguegalaxy 23 f (US) Good friends make the world go round!

Significant note: ONLY MESSAGE ME IF you're 21+ years old (NO MINORS) and from the U.S (due to the difference in timezones past 3 hours). I'm on Pacific standard timezone so I would like to talk with you if you're from CST, PST, or MST. I'm not interested in NSFW, drugs, alcohol or talking about politics either so DON'T contact me if you like those things
I know I sure am! I hate not having anyone to chat with (aside from my bf, he's got his friends but I STILLL don't got mine!) and share fun things I love! I'd love to have someone to do Spotify sessions with, so that we can use the 'blend' feature and introduce each other to brand new music we've never heard before. Please don't ask me to share playlists, as that's not how I roll. I'd rather us both listen together, it's just better that way imo. I like to play this game on my PC called cyber hunter, it's an addictive and underrated battle royale. I'm not looking for a gaming buddy aside from that game tho! I also would be down to possibly watch things on YouTube or even watch movies or something from time to time. What I'd really like to do is have a few close friends so that we can talk on the phone once we get to know each other for quite a long while. I'd definitely love to talk to others and learn things I never knew before! Which is one of the top reasons why I still throw my hat into the ring on here. Please understand that it takes time to warm up to someone and I do not want to feel forced to doing something. So don't push me to do voice chats right away or I may not respond anymore!
I'm someone who likes to be supportive of their friends and just be there for them. I like being able to recommend things I think would be helpful if someone is in need. I also am open to listening to you vent and giving you advice! I'd just hope this isn't all that we do as there's more to a friendship than constantly talking about our problems. I like to send and receive long, well thought out messages as opposed to short ones. I'm big into having deep and meaningful conversations over small chat any day. I also love hearing stories and even talking about stuff that's happened to me. I respond fairly fast, however reddit is really broken so I don't quite get notifs anymore. I'd be more than happy to move off this app once we've been talking for quite a long while. I don't like moving immediately off the app, so again do not try to pressure me to do things I don't want to do. We gotta respect each other's boundaries and develop trust afterall!
As for what I'm looking for in a friend, I'd hope you could be kind, respectful, communicative, consistent and thoughtful! Of course other things too but these are all key! I'm not really looking to be friends with anyone who isn't open to chatting all throughout the days/nights. I understand that everyone's schedules vary, but I'm more than happy to make time for others. Whether I am busy or not, I always make sure to get back to people I enjoy talking to. So I expect that you also want to do the same with me! I'm also a night owl, so it's very much preferred you're one too as I never have anyone to chat with before I sleep. And I miss having those epic 3 am chats where you both can't stop chatting because the convos are just that good.
Anyways, I'll leave a bit about me then pass it off to you! Please make sure that you put some effort into your messages because... Well, if you don't I most likely won't respond to you. I don't have patience to talk to brick walls and people who expect me to do all the talking. I work best when I can go with the flow of all my conversations, rather than constantly asking back and forth questions. Feel free to check out the other posts on my profile if my interests I list are not enough here!
Some things I'm really into right now: across the spider verse, guardians of the Galaxy 3, squishmallows, thrifting, reading comics, binge watching TV shows and movies, listening to music, going out/going for walks, being in nature/taking nature pictures, playing pool, playing tabletop, playing games on my modded ps vita, PC, and PS5, etc.

2023.06.08 07:32 PsychoThinker1822 Gonna start a meme streak on Pune

Its been exactly 6 months today that I have been in Pune and I think I am adjusting in here and starting to feel like one of all. I have this hobby of making meme streak on just one particular topic as long as I can (I stop until it becomes unfunny 🥹🥲). I really found some really interesting meme material while I was lurking around like this one:
So, I just request meme ideas which will be more relatable and hilarious for all Punekars to enjoy
English, Marathi, Hindi....Kahihi adchan nahi....Sab bhashao mai banayenge...
Mod दादांना काही अडचण नसेल तर झालं😅
Looking forward to this 😁
Even if I get 1 upvote per each meme...I will make daily..... But I will.....

2023.06.08 07:31 Honest_to-a-fault 24 [M4F] Chennai/Bangalore - Looking to be that chill breeze in hot summer of your life

Hello good people. Here I am hoping to meet and vibe with someone. I know reddit isn’t the best of place’s, But hey who wouldn’t like some fairy tale in their life.
So to tell you about me, I'm a 24 year old who is very outgoing and loves to experience and do new stuff to keep me going. I'm very social and easy to make friends with. I'm articulate, mature and Refined.
I'm an avid football follower and I support the Red Devils-Manchester united. Well even though they haven’t won much since I started following them back in 2015 they’re very close to my heart. I guess one thing that you can take from this is my loyalty haha. So if you ever need a buddy to watch or discuss anything football, I'm your goto guy.
I try and game but suck real hard at it. It’s the perfect example of insanity. I try and try again to improve and funnily think raging in a mmorpg like League of legends with the most toxic players would help me relax after long day of work. So yeah if you ever need a noob to play with hit me up.Recently I have also been trying to cultivate the habit of reading some books so if you are someone who reads books and would like to help me out to do so your help is appreciated
I’m the kind of person who notices little things and would like to surprise you with them. A great listener who loves to talk about random things and knows how to keep the conversation going
I bet that I could beat you at binge watching a series any day. I’m a big weeb, We could watch or rewatch any series under the sun.
I get excited a lot even about small things and would probably discuss it with you. My political views lean to the left and would welcome any kind of respectful discussions. Not saying that this would be completely sfw. But if we reach a stage where both of us are comfortable discussing nsfw stuff and taking things physical I have my kinks and turn ons which we can discuss when we are comfortable around each other
I’m 5’7 with a normal bod. I talk a lot and sometimes not talk at all and just listen to you. I would want to be friends with your friends and get along with them just fine
I love and cherish all my friendships and relationships. The kind of person who you will come to talk if you’re feeling low or to share your success with
So if you have reached so far do not hesitate to drop in a text. I just need some new friends over here. I'm 420 friendly and we could also go for clubbing.
Tldr:- So long story short I'm looking for people to hangout with. Potentially a date if things go well

2023.06.08 07:11 traumatized90skid Sick of 'he gets us' ads and I want nothing to do with Christianity, ok?!

Part of my childhood trauma was rooted in evangelical Christianity. It was believing I was going to hell if I stopped believing in Jesus. That God will abandon you and throw your soul into eternal fire, if you mess up, was firmly pressed into my mind.
My church growing up also got a bit anti-Islam following 9/11. But this I mean I was subjected to nonstop rants about the supposed evils of Islam that I know now to be entirely false. In fact almost nothing about what Evangelicals want politically is any different from the "sharia law" that became their Boogeyman.
I was in a play at age 12, where my character is a little girl who dies with her mother in a car accident. The mother was someone who went to church regularly and was a good person, but she didn't really believe. So when they die, she's separated from her child (me) and dragged to hell by Satan. Little girl goes to heaven and meets Jesus.
Anyway I was severely traumatized by acting in this play. I had nightmares about the guy playing Satan. During this time I wasn't eating or sleeping well and became terrified of the "End Times" and became briefly obsessed with finding signs of them everywhere. So basically they infect entire populations with a kind of mass schizophrenia. You start being suspicious of little things like song lyrics. And I remember being TERRIFIED of the number 666.
I also remember reading a book, which I didn't believe in even then, but my grandma did, but it explained that evolution wasn't real and that dinosaur fossils were made by Satan to deceive people 🤦‍♀️. Even then, as a kid, I remember thinking that must be ridiculous.
Anyway so with experiences like that and more I won't even get into here, I think it's fair to say I was religiously traumatized.
So why is it that I can't block religious and specifically Christian ads? I can't enjoy any site if I'm just going keep being pestered by them. And I know I could use ad blockers but that is not the point. The point is, Reddit should have policy in place that lets trauma survivors block traumatic ad content and that's not one of the options to select so I always choose "offensive" but that seems so belittling to me...
I'm not offended I'm traumatized.

COINTELPRO Techniques for dilution, misdirection and control of a internet forum - Reposting

Reposting this, long read but relevant for the coming deluge of 💩
  1. COINTELPRO Techniques for dilution, misdirection and control of a internet forum
  2. Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation
  3. Eight Traits of the Disinformationalist
  4. How to Spot a Spy (Cointelpro Agent)
  5. Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression
COINTELPRO Techniques for dilution, misdirection and control of a internet forum..
There are several techniques for the control and manipulation of a internet forum no matter what, or who is on it. We will go over each technique and demonstrate that only a minimal number of operatives can be used to eventually and effectively gain a control of a 'uncontrolled forum.'
Technique #1 - 'FORUM SLIDING'
If a very sensitive posting of a critical nature has been posted on a forum - it can be quickly removed from public view by 'forum sliding.' In this technique a number of unrelated posts are quietly prepositioned on the forum and allowed to 'age.' Each of these misdirectional forum postings can then be called upon at will to trigger a 'forum slide.' The second requirement is that several fake accounts exist, which can be called upon, to ensure that this technique is not exposed to the public. To trigger a 'forum slide' and 'flush' the critical post out of public view it is simply a matter of logging into each account both real and fake and then 'replying' to prepositined postings with a simple 1 or 2 line comment. This brings the unrelated postings to the top of the forum list, and the critical posting 'slides' down the front page, and quickly out of public view. Although it is difficult or impossible to censor the posting it is now lost in a sea of unrelated and unuseful postings. By this means it becomes effective to keep the readers of the forum reading unrelated and non-issue items.
A second highly effective technique (which you can see in operation all the time at is 'consensus cracking.' To develop a consensus crack, the following technique is used. Under the guise of a fake account a posting is made which looks legitimate and is towards the truth is made - but the critical point is that it has a VERY WEAK PREMISE without substantive proof to back the posting. Once this is done then under alternative fake accounts a very strong position in your favour is slowly introduced over the life of the posting. It is IMPERATIVE that both sides are initially presented, so the uninformed reader cannot determine which side is the truth. As postings and replies are made the stronger 'evidence' or disinformation in your favour is slowly 'seeded in.' Thus the uninformed reader will most like develop the same position as you, and if their position is against you their opposition to your posting will be most likely dropped. However in some cases where the forum members are highly educated and can counter your disinformation with real facts and linked postings, you can then 'abort' the consensus cracking by initiating a 'forum slide.'
Technique #3 - 'TOPIC DILUTION'
Topic dilution is not only effective in forum sliding it is also very useful in keeping the forum readers on unrelated and non-productive issues. This is a critical and useful technique to cause a 'RESOURCE BURN.' By implementing continual and non-related postings that distract and disrupt (trolling ) the forum readers they are more effectively stopped from anything of any real productivity. If the intensity of gradual dilution is intense enough, the readers will effectively stop researching and simply slip into a 'gossip mode.' In this state they can be more easily misdirected away from facts towards uninformed conjecture and opinion. The less informed they are the more effective and easy it becomes to control the entire group in the direction that you would desire the group to go in. It must be stressed that a proper assessment of the psychological capabilities and levels of education is first determined of the group to determine at what level to 'drive in the wedge.' By being too far off topic too quickly it may trigger censorship by a forum moderator.
Information collection is also a very effective method to determine the psychological level of the forum members, and to gather intelligence that can be used against them. In this technique in a light and positive environment a 'show you mine so me yours' posting is initiated. From the number of replies and the answers that are provided much statistical information can be gathered. An example is to post your 'favourite weapon' and then encourage other members of the forum to showcase what they have. In this matter it can be determined by reverse proration what percentage of the forum community owns a firearm, and or a illegal weapon. This same method can be used by posing as one of the form members and posting your favourite 'technique of operation.' From the replies various methods that the group utilizes can be studied and effective methods developed to stop them from their activities.
Technique #5 - 'ANGER TROLLING'
Statistically, there is always a percentage of the forum posters who are more inclined to violence. In order to determine who these individuals are, it is a requirement to present a image to the forum to deliberately incite a strong psychological reaction. From this the most violent in the group can be effectively singled out for reverse IP location and possibly local enforcement tracking. To accomplish this only requires posting a link to a video depicting a local police officer massively abusing his power against a very innocent individual. Statistically of the million or so police officers in America there is always one or two being caught abusing there powers and the taping of the activity can be then used for intelligence gathering purposes - without the requirement to 'stage' a fake abuse video. This method is extremely effective, and the more so the more abusive the video can be made to look. Sometimes it is useful to 'lead' the forum by replying to your own posting with your own statement of violent intent, and that you 'do not care what the authorities think!!' inflammation. By doing this and showing no fear it may be more effective in getting the more silent and self-disciplined violent intent members of the forum to slip and post their real intentions. This can be used later in a court of law during prosecution.
It is important to also be harvesting and continually maneuvering for a forum moderator position. Once this position is obtained, the forum can then be effectively and quietly controlled by deleting unfavourable postings - and one can eventually steer the forum into complete failure and lack of interest by the general public. This is the 'ultimate victory' as the forum is no longer participated with by the general public and no longer useful in maintaining their freedoms. Depending on the level of control you can obtain, you can deliberately steer a forum into defeat by censoring postings, deleting memberships, flooding, and or accidentally taking the forum offline. By this method the forum can be quickly killed. However it is not always in the interest to kill a forum as it can be converted into a 'honey pot' gathering center to collect and misdirect newcomers and from this point be completely used for your control for your agenda purposes.
Remember these techniques are only effective if the forum participants DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THEM. Once they are aware of these techniques the operation can completely fail, and the forum can become uncontrolled. At this point other avenues must be considered such as initiating a false legal precidence to simply have the forum shut down and taken offline. This is not desirable as it then leaves the enforcement agencies unable to track the percentage of those in the population who always resist attempts for control against them. Many other techniques can be utilized and developed by the individual and as you develop further techniques of infiltration and control it is imperative to share then with HQ.
Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation
Note: The first rule and last five (or six, depending on situation) rules are generally not directly within the ability of the traditional disinfo artist to apply. These rules are generally used more directly by those at the leadership, key players, or planning level of the criminal conspiracy or conspiracy to cover up.
1. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. Regardless of what you know, don't discuss it -- especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it's not reported, it didn't happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.
2. Become incredulous and indignant. Avoid discussing key issues and instead focus on side issues which can be used show the topic as being critical of some otherwise sacrosanct group or theme. This is also known as the 'How dare you!' gambit.
3. Create rumor mongers. Avoid discussing issues by describing all charges, regardless of venue or evidence, as mere rumors and wild accusations. Other derogatory terms mutually exclusive of truth may work as well. This method which works especially well with a silent press, because the only way the public can learn of the facts are through such 'arguable rumors'. If you can associate the material with the Internet, use this fact to certify it a 'wild rumor' from a 'bunch of kids on the Internet' which can have no basis in fact.
4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent's argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.
5. Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the primary 'attack the messenger' ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as 'kooks', 'right-wing', 'liberal', 'left-wing', 'terrorists', 'conspiracy buffs', 'radicals', 'militia', 'racists', 'religious fanatics', 'sexual deviates', and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with issues.
6. Hit and Run. In any public forum, make a brief attack of your opponent or the opponent position and then scamper off before an answer can be fielded, or simply ignore any answer. This works extremely well in Internet and letters-to-the-editor environments where a steady stream of new identities can be called upon without having to explain criticism, reasoning -- simply make an accusation or other attack, never discussing issues, and never answering any subsequent response, for that would dignify the opponent's viewpoint.
7. Question motives. Twist or amplify any fact which could be taken to imply that the opponent operates out of a hidden personal agenda or other bias. This avoids discussing issues and forces the accuser on the defensive.
8. Invoke authority. Claim for yourself or associate yourself with authority and present your argument with enough 'jargon' and 'minutia' to illustrate you are 'one who knows', and simply say it isn't so without discussing issues or demonstrating concretely why or citing sources.
9. Play Dumb. No matter what evidence or logical argument is offered, avoid discussing issues except with denials they have any credibility, make any sense, provide any proof, contain or make a point, have logic, or support a conclusion. Mix well for maximum effect.
10. Associate opponent charges with old news. A derivative of the straw man -- usually, in any large-scale matter of high visibility, someone will make charges early on which can be or were already easily dealt with - a kind of investment for the future should the matter not be so easily contained.) Where it can be foreseen, have your own side raise a straw man issue and have it dealt with early on as part of the initial contingency plans. Subsequent charges, regardless of validity or new ground uncovered, can usually then be associated with the original charge and dismissed as simply being a rehash without need to address current issues -- so much the better where the opponent is or was involved with the original source.
11. Establish and rely upon fall-back positions. Using a minor matter or element of the facts, take the 'high road' and 'confess' with candor that some innocent mistake, in hindsight, was made -- but that opponents have seized on the opportunity to blow it all out of proportion and imply greater criminalities which, 'just isn't so.' Others can reinforce this on your behalf, later, and even publicly 'call for an end to the nonsense' because you have already 'done the right thing.' Done properly, this can garner sympathy and respect for 'coming clean' and 'owning up' to your mistakes without addressing more serious issues.
12. Enigmas have no solution. Drawing upon the overall umbrella of events surrounding the crime and the multitude of players and events, paint the entire affair as too complex to solve. This causes those otherwise following the matter to begin to lose interest more quickly without having to address the actual issues.
13. Alice in Wonderland Logic. Avoid discussion of the issues by reasoning backwards or with an apparent deductive logic which forbears any actual material fact.
14. Demand complete solutions. Avoid the issues by requiring opponents to solve the crime at hand completely, a ploy which works best with issues qualifying for rule 10.
15. Fit the facts to alternate conclusions. This requires creative thinking unless the crime was planned with contingency conclusions in place.
16. Vanish evidence and witnesses. If it does not exist, it is not fact, and you won't have to address the issue.
17. Change the subject. Usually in connection with one of the other ploys listed here, find a way to side-track the discussion with abrasive or controversial comments in hopes of turning attention to a new, more manageable topic. This works especially well with companions who can 'argue' with you over the new topic and polarize the discussion arena in order to avoid discussing more key issues.
18. Emotionalize, Antagonize, and Goad Opponents. If you can't do anything else, chide and taunt your opponents and draw them into emotional responses which will tend to make them look foolish and overly motivated, and generally render their material somewhat less coherent. Not only will you avoid discussing the issues in the first instance, but even if their emotional response addresses the issue, you can further avoid the issues by then focusing on how 'sensitive they are to criticism.'
19. Ignore proof presented, demand impossible proofs. This is perhaps a variant of the 'play dumb' rule. Regardless of what material may be presented by an opponent in public forums, claim the material irrelevant and demand proof that is impossible for the opponent to come by (it may exist, but not be at his disposal, or it may be something which is known to be safely destroyed or withheld, such as a murder weapon.) In order to completely avoid discussing issues, it may be required that you to categorically deny and be critical of media or books as valid sources, deny that witnesses are acceptable, or even deny that statements made by government or other authorities have any meaning or relevance.
20. False evidence. Whenever possible, introduce new facts or clues designed and manufactured to conflict with opponent presentations -- as useful tools to neutralize sensitive issues or impede resolution. This works best when the crime was designed with contingencies for the purpose, and the facts cannot be easily separated from the fabrications.
21. Call a Grand Jury, Special Prosecutor, or other empowered investigative body. Subvert the (process) to your benefit and effectively neutralize all sensitive issues without open discussion. Once convened, the evidence and testimony are required to be secret when properly handled. For instance, if you own the prosecuting attorney, it can insure a Grand Jury hears no useful evidence and that the evidence is sealed and unavailable to subsequent investigators. Once a favorable verdict is achieved, the matter can be considered officially closed. Usually, this technique is applied to find the guilty innocent, but it can also be used to obtain charges when seeking to frame a victim.
22. Manufacture a new truth. Create your own expert(s), group(s), author(s), leader(s) or influence existing ones willing to forge new ground via scientific, investigative, or social research or testimony which concludes favorably. In this way, if you must actually address issues, you can do so authoritatively.
23. Create bigger distractions. If the above does not seem to be working to distract from sensitive issues, or to prevent unwanted media coverage of unstoppable events such as trials, create bigger news stories (or treat them as such) to distract the multitudes.
24. Silence critics. If the above methods do not prevail, consider removing opponents from circulation by some definitive solution so that the need to address issues is removed entirely. This can be by their death, arrest and detention, blackmail or destruction of their character by release of blackmail information, or merely by destroying them financially, emotionally, or severely damaging their health.
25. Vanish. If you are a key holder of secrets or otherwise overly illuminated and you think the heat is getting too hot, to avoid the issues, vacate the kitchen.
Eight Traits of the Disinformationalist
1) Avoidance. They never actually discuss issues head-on or provide constructive input, generally avoiding citation of references or credentials. Rather, they merely imply this, that, and the other. Virtually everything about their presentation implies their authority and expert knowledge in the matter without any further justification for credibility.
2) Selectivity. They tend to pick and choose opponents carefully, either applying the hit-and-run approach against mere commentators supportive of opponents, or focusing heavier attacks on key opponents who are known to directly address issues. Should a commentator become argumentative with any success, the focus will shift to include the commentator as well.
3) Coincidental. They tend to surface suddenly and somewhat coincidentally with a new controversial topic with no clear prior record of participation in general discussions in the particular public arena involved. They likewise tend to vanish once the topic is no longer of general concern. They were likely directed or elected to be there for a reason, and vanish with the reason.
4) Teamwork. They tend to operate in self-congratulatory and complementary packs or teams. Of course, this can happen naturally in any public forum, but there will likely be an ongoing pattern of frequent exchanges of this sort where professionals are involved. Sometimes one of the players will infiltrate the opponent camp to become a source for straw man or other tactics designed to dilute opponent presentation strength.
5) Anti-conspiratorial. They almost always have disdain for 'conspiracy theorists' and, usually, for those who in any way believe JFK was not killed by LHO. Ask yourself why, if they hold such disdain for conspiracy theorists, do they focus on defending a single topic discussed in a NG focusing on conspiracies? One might think they would either be trying to make fools of everyone on every topic, or simply ignore the group they hold in such disdain.Or, one might more rightly conclude they have an ulterior motive for their actions in going out of their way to focus as they do.
6) Artificial Emotions. An odd kind of 'artificial' emotionalism and an unusually thick skin -- an ability to persevere and persist even in the face of overwhelming criticism and unacceptance. This likely stems from intelligence community training that, no matter how condemning the evidence, deny everything, and never become emotionally involved or reactive. The net result for a disinfo artist is that emotions can seem artificial.
Most people, if responding in anger, for instance, will express their animosity throughout their rebuttal. But disinfo types usually have trouble maintaining the 'image' and are hot and cold with respect to pretended emotions and their usually more calm or unemotional communications style. It's just a job, and they often seem unable to 'act their role in character' as well in a communications medium as they might be able in a real face-to-face conversation/confrontation. You might have outright rage and indignation one moment, ho-hum the next, and more anger later -- an emotional yo-yo.
With respect to being thick-skinned, no amount of criticism will deter them from doing their job, and they will generally continue their old disinfo patterns without any adjustments to criticisms of how obvious it is that they play that game -- where a more rational individual who truly cares what others think might seek to improve their communications style, substance, and so forth, or simply give up.
7) Inconsistent. There is also a tendency to make mistakes which betray their true self/motives. This may stem from not really knowing their topic, or it may be somewhat 'freudian', so to speak, in that perhaps they really root for the side of truth deep within.
I have noted that often, they will simply cite contradictory information which neutralizes itself and the author. For instance, one such player claimed to be a Navy pilot, but blamed his poor communicating skills (spelling, grammar, incoherent style) on having only a grade-school education. I'm not aware of too many Navy pilots who don't have a college degree. Another claimed no knowledge of a particular topic/situation but later claimed first-hand knowledge of it.
8) Time Constant. Recently discovered, with respect to News Groups, is the response time factor. There are three ways this can be seen to work, especially when the government or other empowered player is involved in a cover up operation:
a) ANY NG posting by a targeted proponent for truth can result in an IMMEDIATE response. The government and other empowered players can afford to pay people to sit there and watch for an opportunity to do some damage. SINCE DISINFO IN A NG ONLY WORKS IF THE READER SEES IT - FAST RESPONSE IS CALLED FOR, or the visitor may be swayed towards truth.
b) When dealing in more direct ways with a disinformationalist, such as email, DELAY IS CALLED FOR - there will usually be a minimum of a 48-72 hour delay. This allows a sit-down team discussion on response strategy for best effect, and even enough time to 'get permission' or instruction from a formal chain of command.
c) In the NG example 1) above, it will often ALSO be seen that bigger guns are drawn and fired after the same 48-72 hours delay - the team approach in play. This is especially true when the targeted truth seeker or their comments are considered more important with respect to potential to reveal truth. Thus, a serious truth sayer will be attacked twice for the same sin.
How to Spot a Spy (Cointelpro Agent)
One way to neutralize a potential activist is to get them to be in a group that does all the wrong things. Why?
1) The message doesn't get out.
2) A lot of time is wasted
3) The activist is frustrated and discouraged
4) Nothing good is accomplished.
FBI and Police Informers and Infiltrators will infest any group and they have phoney activist organizations established.
Their purpose is to prevent any real movement for justice or eco-peace from developing in this country.
Agents come in small, medium or large. They can be of any ethnic background. They can be male or female.
The actual size of the group or movement being infiltrated is irrelevant. It is the potential the movement has for becoming large which brings on the spies and saboteurs.
This booklet lists tactics agents use to slow things down, foul things up, destroy the movement and keep tabs on activists.
It is the agent's job to keep the activist from quitting such a group, thus keeping him/her under control.
In some situations, to get control, the agent will tell the activist:
[Here, I have added the psychological reasons as to WHY this maneuver works to control people]
This invites guilty feelings. Many people can be controlled by guilt. The agents begin relationships with activists behind a well-developed mask of "dedication to the cause." Because of their often declared dedication, (and actions designed to prove this), when they criticize the activist, he or she - being truly dedicated to the movement - becomes convinced that somehow, any issues are THEIR fault. This is because a truly dedicated person tends to believe that everyone has a conscience and that nobody would dissimulate and lie like that "on purpose." It's amazing how far agents can go in manipulating an activist because the activist will constantly make excuses for the agent who regularly declares their dedication to the cause. Even if they do, occasionally, suspect the agent, they will pull the wool over their own eyes by rationalizing: "they did that unconsciously... they didn't really mean it... I can help them by being forgiving and accepting " and so on and so forth.
The agent will tell the activist:
This is designed to enhance the activist's self-esteem. His or her narcissistic admiration of his/her own activist/altruistic intentions increase as he or she identifies with and consciously admires the altruistic declarations of the agent which are deliberately set up to mirror those of the activist.
This is "malignant pseudoidentification." It is the process by which the agent consciously imitates or simulates a certain behavior to foster the activist's identification with him/her, thus increasing the activist's vulnerability to exploitation. The agent will simulate the more subtle self-concepts of the activist.
Activists and those who have altruistic self-concepts are most vulnerable to malignant pseudoidentification especially during work with the agent when the interaction includes matter relating to their competency, autonomy, or knowledge.
The goal of the agent is to increase the activist's general empathy for the agent through pseudo-identification with the activist's self-concepts.
The most common example of this is the agent who will compliment the activist for his competency or knowledge or value to the movement. On a more subtle level, the agent will simulate affects and mannerisms of the activist which promotes identification via mirroring and feelings of "twinship". It is not unheard of for activists, enamored by the perceived helpfulness and competence of a good agent, to find themselves considering ethical violations and perhaps, even illegal behavior, in the service of their agent/handler.
The activist's "felt quality of perfection" [self-concept] is enhanced, and a strong empathic bond is developed with the agent through his/her imitation and simulation of the victim's own narcissistic investments. [self-concepts] That is, if the activist knows, deep inside, their own dedication to the cause, they will project that onto the agent who is "mirroring" them.
The activist will be deluded into thinking that the agent shares this feeling of identification and bonding. In an activist/social movement setting, the adversarial roles that activists naturally play vis a vis the establishment/government, fosters ongoing processes of intrapsychic splitting so that "twinship alliances" between activist and agent may render whole sectors or reality testing unavailable to the activist. They literally "lose touch with reality."
Activists who deny their own narcissistic investments [do not have a good idea of their own self-concepts and that they ARE concepts] and consciously perceive themselves (accurately, as it were) to be "helpers" endowed with a special amount of altruism are exceedingly vulnerable to the affective (emotional) simulation of the accomplished agent.
Empathy is fostered in the activist through the expression of quite visible affects. The presentation of tearfulness, sadness, longing, fear, remorse, and guilt, may induce in the helper-oriented activist a strong sense of compassion, while unconsciously enhancing the activist's narcissistic investment in self as the embodiment of goodness.
The agent's expresssion of such simulated affects may be quite compelling to the observer and difficult to distinguish from deep emotion.
It can usually be identified by two events, however:
First, the activist who has analyzed his/her own narcissistic roots and is aware of his/her own potential for being "emotionally hooked," will be able to remain cool and unaffected by such emotional outpourings by the agent.
As a result of this unaffected, cool, attitude, the Second event will occur: The agent will recompensate much too quickly following such an affective expression leaving the activist with the impression that "the play has ended, the curtain has fallen," and the imposture, for the moment, has finished. The agent will then move quickly to another activist/victim.
The fact is, the movement doesn't need leaders, it needs MOVERS. "Follow the leader" is a waste of time.
A good agent will want to meet as often as possible. He or she will talk a lot and say little. One can expect an onslaught of long, unresolved discussions.
Some agents take on a pushy, arrogant, or defensive manner:
1) To disrupt the agenda
2) To side-track the discussion
3) To interrupt repeatedly
4) To feign ignorance
5) To make an unfounded accusation against a person.
Calling someone a racist, for example. This tactic is used to discredit a person in the eyes of all other group members.
Some saboteurs pretend to be activists. She or he will ....
1) Write encyclopedic flyers (in the present day, websites)
2) Print flyers in English only.
3) Have demonstrations in places where no one cares.
4) Solicit funding from rich people instead of grass roots support
5) Display banners with too many words that are confusing.
6) Confuse issues.
7) Make the wrong demands.
8) Compromise the goal.
9) Have endless discussions that waste everyone's time. The agent may accompany the endless discussions with drinking, pot smoking or other amusement to slow down the activist's work.
1) Want to establish "leaders" to set them up for a fall in order to stop the movement.
2) Suggest doing foolish, illegal things to get the activists in trouble.
3) Encourage militancy.
4) Want to taunt the authorities.
5) Attempt to make the activist compromise their values.
6) Attempt to instigate violence. Activisim ought to always be non-violent.
7) Attempt to provoke revolt among people who are ill-prepared to deal with the reaction of the authorities to such violence.
1) Want everyone to sign up and sing in and sign everything.
2) Ask a lot of questions (gathering data).
3) Want to know what events the activist is planning to attend.
4) Attempt to make the activist defend him or herself to identify his or her beliefs, goals, and level of committment.
Legitimate activists do not subject people to hours of persuasive dialog. Their actions, beliefs, and goals speak for themselves.
Groups that DO recruit are missionaries, military, and fake political parties or movements set up by agents.
ALWAYS assume that you are under surveillance.
At this point, if you are NOT under surveillance, you are not a very good activist!
Scare Tactics
They use them.
Such tactics include slander, defamation, threats, getting close to disaffected or minimally committed fellow activists to persuade them (via psychological tactics described above) to turn against the movement and give false testimony against their former compatriots. They will plant illegal substances on the activist and set up an arrest; they will plant false information and set up "exposure," they will send incriminating letters [emails] in the name of the activist; and more; they will do whatever society will allow.
This booklet in no way covers all the ways agents use to sabotage the lives of sincere an dedicated activists.
If an agent is "exposed," he or she will be transferred or replaced.
COINTELPRO is still in operation today under a different code name. It is no longer placed on paper where it can be discovered through the freedom of information act.
The FBI counterintelligence program's stated purpose: To expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, and otherwise neutralize individuals who the FBI categorize as opposed to the National Interests. "National Security" means the FBI's security from the people ever finding out the vicious things it does in violation of people's civil liberties.
Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression
Strong, credible allegations of high-level criminal activity can bring down a government. When the government lacks an effective, fact-based defense, other techniques must be employed. The success of these techniques depends heavily upon a cooperative, compliant press and a mere token opposition party.
1. Dummy up. If it's not reported, if it's not news, it didn't happen.
2. Wax indignant. This is also known as the "How dare you?" gambit.
3. Characterize the charges as "rumors" or, better yet, "wild rumors." If, in spite of the news blackout, the public is still able to learn about the suspicious facts, it can only be through "rumors." (If they tend to believe the "rumors" it must be because they are simply "paranoid" or "hysterical.")
4. Knock down straw men. Deal only with the weakest aspects of the weakest charges. Even better, create your own straw men. Make up wild rumors (or plant false stories) and give them lead play when you appear to debunk all the charges, real and fanciful alike.
5. Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.
6. Impugn motives. Attempt to marginalize the critics by suggesting strongly that they are not really interested in the truth but are simply pursuing a partisan political agenda or are out to make money (compared to over-compensated adherents to the government line who, presumably, are not).
7. Invoke authority. Here the controlled press and the sham opposition can be very useful.
8. Dismiss the charges as "old news."
9. Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.
10. Characterize the crimes as impossibly complex and the truth as ultimately unknowable.
11. Reason backward, using the deductive method with a vengeance. With thoroughly rigorous deduction, troublesome evidence is irrelevant. E.g. We have a completely free press. If evidence exists that the Vince Foster "suicide" note was forged, they would have reported it. They haven't reported it so there is no such evidence. Another variation on this theme involves the likelihood of a conspiracy leaker and a press who would report the leak.
12. Require the skeptics to solve the crime completely. E.g. If Foster was murdered, who did it and why?
13. Change the subject. This technique includes creating and/or publicizing distractions.
14. Lightly report incriminating facts, and then make nothing of them. This is sometimes referred to as "bump and run" reporting.
15. Baldly and brazenly lie. A favorite way of doing this is to attribute the "facts" furnished the public to a plausible-sounding, but anonymous, source.
16. Expanding further on numbers 4 and 5, have your own stooges "expose" scandals and champion popular causes. Their job is to pre-empt real opponents and to play 99-yard football. A variation is to pay rich people for the job who will pretend to spend their own money.
17. Flood the Internet with agents. This is the answer to the question, "What could possibly motivate a person to spend hour upon hour on Internet news groups defending the government and/or the press and harassing genuine critics?" Don t the authorities have defenders enough in all the newspapers, magazines, radio, and television? One would think refusing to print critical letters and screening out serious callers or dumping them from radio talk shows would be control enough, but, obviously, it is not.

2023.06.08 07:00 autotldr Japan is redefining rape

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 85%. (I'm a bot)
The bill covers a number of changes, but the biggest and most significant one will see lawmakers redefine rape from "Forcible sexual intercourse" to "Non-consensual sexual intercourse" - effectively making legal room for consent in a society where the concept is still poorly understood.
Current Japanese law defines rape as sexual intercourse or indecent acts committed "Forcibly" and "Through assault or intimidation", or by taking advantage of a person's "Unconscious state or inability to resist".
"The actual trial processes and decisions vary - some defendants were not convicted even if their acts were proven to be non-consensual, as they did not meet the case of 'assault or intimidation'," says Yuu Tadokoro, a spokesman for Spring, a sexual assault survivor group.
According to reports, the man said he thought "Men could easily engage in sexual behaviour" at the event, which was known for its sexual permissiveness, and others who witnessed the incident did not stop him.
Sexual assault is still a taboo subject in Japan and has gained national attention only in recent years in the wake of high-profile cases such as Shiori Ito's court battle, former member of the Self Defence Force and sexual assault survivor Rina Gonoi's public statements, and the Johnny Kitagawa expose.
Japan should offer more financial and psychological support for sexual assault survivors, says lawyer and rights advocate Sakura Kamitani.

2023.06.08 06:50 dlanm2u Decentralized open source Reddit-alike platform with consensus based platform moderation

why decentralized? so that while we all mostly don’t have the money to run a server, you can potentially reward server-runners, naturally have a cdn, and have servers without a single corporate entity responsible for running them
why open-source? there’s always issues and a way to improve them; if the community knows what’s wrong and how they want to fix it, they would then be able to. this also solves the api issues since if you just standardize an api across all the server-runners, any third-party app can just latch onto it like how there’s all the Minecraft Java launchers
why Reddit-alike? because Reddit has a unique userbase as a result of the diverse communities on the platform. their ability to convene in such a way is powered by the structure of the platform, pretty much being a central core platform to host all the forums and communities
what do you mean by “consensus based?” well, to fix the possibility that the platform gets highly politically driven, a certain subset of mods in the highest member count communities are the ones able to vote on whether a community meets the guidelines and shall stay or be removed. This reduces the potential of takeover by bot filled communities through the abhorrent difficulty of quietly opening a majority number of bot filled communities just to have enough voting power to protect a certain community.
Additionally, a consensus based system of decisions can be applied to other aspects of a platform to ensure user and community compliance with platform guidelines; if amendments should be implemented, mods and the general userbase can make those decisions as a result.

2023.06.08 06:42 brettdavis4 JFC, we’re supposed to be the insensitive ones!?!

For some reason, Reddit suggested a sub that rhymes with this one. To not violate a rule on this sub, I’ll just leave it at that. I’ll also say it isn’t child or childfree related.
Holy shit the people on there are extremely heartless and have no form of compassion.
I’m amazed at how cf people are sometimes looked at as heartless and then I compare this sub to something else.

2023.06.08 06:35 SeattleNomad13 Floating Lotus

Floating Lotus: Saving Humanity
Title: "Harmony in Chaos: The Floating Lotus Chronicles"
Chapter 1: Inception of a Noble Mission
The world was on the brink of collapse, plagued by natural disasters, political unrest, and a pandemic that seemed unstoppable. As chaos ensued, a group of compassionate individuals from a small island nation came together to form the Floating Lotus (F.L.) Company. Driven by their Buddhist principles and a deep desire to help those in need, they embarked on a remarkable journey.
Chapter 2: The Fleet of Hope
The F.L. Company assembled a fleet of hospital boats, equipped with state-of-the-art medical facilities and staffed by a team of dedicated doctors, nurses, and volunteers. These floating sanctuaries would become beacons of hope, providing essential medical aid to rapidly forming refugee camps around the world.
Chapter 3: Logistics and Teamwork
The success of the F.L. Company relied on meticulous planning, efficient logistics, and unwavering teamwork. Every aspect, from supply management to crew rotations, had to be carefully orchestrated to ensure the smooth operation of the hospital boats. The security sector, though small in number, played a vital role in safeguarding the fleet and its mission.
Chapter 4: The Non-lethal Ethos
At the heart of the F.L. Company's operations lay their non-lethal Buddhist ethics. They firmly believed in preserving life, even in the face of adversity. While other organizations resorted to violence, the F.L. Company found alternative means to protect themselves. Their security team trained rigorously in the art of man catchers—a non-lethal weapon that allowed them to restrain without causing harm.
Chapter 5: Trials and Tribulations
As the Floating Lotus fleet ventured into the chaos-ridden world, they encountered numerous challenges. They faced resource shortages, treacherous weather conditions, and desperate populations in need of medical assistance. Yet, with determination and unwavering spirit, they persevered, never straying from their principles.
Chapter 6: The Power of Compassion
The F.L. Company's genuine compassion for humanity touched the lives of countless individuals. Through their selfless acts, they not only provided medical aid but also restored faith and hope in the hearts of those they served. Their hospital boats became symbols of unity and empathy in a fractured world.
Chapter 7: Lessons Learned
Amid the chaos and devastation, the Floating Lotus team learned invaluable lessons about the power of cooperation, empathy, and the importance of non-violence. They discovered that true strength lay not in weapons or aggression, but in understanding, compassion, and a shared vision for a better world.
Epilogue: A Legacy of Hope
Years passed, and the world slowly began to heal. The Floating Lotus Company's legacy lived on, inspiring others to follow their path of non-lethal intervention and compassionate service. Their story became a testament to the indomitable spirit of humanity and the belief that, even in the darkest times, a single act of kindness could bring forth a ray of hope.

2023.06.08 06:30 dayfirstblogs A Girl at My Door

A Girl at My Door, directed by July Jung and released in 2014, is a South Korean psychological drama that tackles complex themes of isolation, vulnerability, and redemption. With its poignant storytelling and powerful performances, the film offers a thought-provoking exploration of societal norms, personal demons, and the lengths individuals will go to protect those they care about. This article delves into the depths of A Girl at My Door, examining its narrative, characters, and underlying messages that have captivated audiences and garnered critical acclaim.
Plot Summary: Set in a remote coastal town, A Girl at My Door follows Lee Young-nam (Bae Doona), a police officer who is transferred from Seoul due to a misconduct incident. As the only female officer in the area, Young-nam struggles with her isolation and the locals' indifference towards her presence. However, her life takes an unexpected turn when she encounters Dohee (Kim Sae-ron), a young girl who becomes the target of abuse within her dysfunctional family.
Young-nam, driven by compassion, takes Dohee under her wing, offering her shelter and protection. As their bond deepens, Young-nam becomes determined to shield Dohee from the abuse and confront the underlying issues plaguing the community. In her pursuit of justice and redemption, Young-nam must confront her own troubled past and navigate the complexities of small-town politics.
Themes of Isolation and Vulnerability: A Girl at My Door masterfully portrays the themes of isolation and vulnerability throughout its narrative. Young-nam's isolation stems not only from being an outsider in the close-knit community but also from her own haunting secrets. She finds solace in Dohee, who shares a similar sense of isolation due to her abusive family life. The film explores how these characters' vulnerabilities intertwine and how they rely on each other for support and understanding in a world that seems intent on breaking them down.
The film also delves into the isolation of the marginalized, tackling issues of sexism, homophobia, and social prejudice. Young-nam faces discrimination as a female police officer, and her interactions with the townspeople reflect the deeply ingrained biases and narrow-mindedness prevalent in society. A Girl at My Door sheds light on the repercussions of social isolation and the dire consequences it can have on individuals and their sense of self-worth.
Redemption and the Power of Connection: A central theme in A Girl at My Door is the search for redemption and the transformative power of genuine connections. Young-nam's journey of redemption is closely intertwined with her relationship with Dohee. As she fights to protect the young girl, she confronts her own demons and finds the strength to reconcile with her past mistakes.
The film explores the profound impact that compassion, empathy, and human connection can have in healing wounds and transforming lives. Through the evolving bond between Young-nam and Dohee, A Girl at My Door showcases the potential for redemption and the hope that arises when individuals support and uplift each other.
Conclusion: A Girl at My Door, with its compelling narrative, exceptional performances, and thought-provoking themes, stands as a remarkable piece of cinema. July Jung's directorial debut adeptly explores the depths of human emotions, shedding light on societal issues and the complexities of personal redemption. The film's portrayal of isolation, vulnerability, and the transformative power of connection resonates deeply with audiences, leaving a lasting impression long after the credits roll. A Girl at My Door is a testament to the artistry of Korean cinema and a must-watch for those seeking a moving and introspective film experience.

2023.06.08 06:25 IHaventEvenGotADog r/CryptoCurrency will be participating in the June 12th -14th protest of Reddit's API changes

As per the result of this governance poll: Should Cryptocurrency (and network subs) join in on the June 12th-14th protest of Reddit's API changes that will essentially kill all 3rd party Reddit apps?
We will be joining the protest and setting the subreddit to private at UTC 00:01 12th June for 48 hours.

What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the desktop interface.
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.
Had a call with Reddit to discuss pricing. Bad news for third-party apps, their announced pricing is close to Twitter's pricing, and Apollo would have to pay Reddit $20 million per year to keep running as-is.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app.This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.
An open letter on the state of affairs regarding the API pricing and third party apps and how that will impact moderators and communities.

What can you do as a user?
