I think it's a really complicated matter as society lock us up in consumerism. When it's about the meat industry, the more people becomes vegan that sector will either disappear or change in another form of exploitation. But in the end I blame those people to partake in the suffering of animals as much as I blame that industries.

When it's about technology, we have become so dependent of it that I had to buy a cellphone. Computers are great but we all know the exploitation that's happening to make components. The only individualist choice we can make is not upgrading our phone/computer until they stop working or can't accomplish a task one needs.

Corporations can't be hold accountable as they are need for capitalism and maintaining power. We're not going to see that in our lifetime.

People get upset to be called out as they are part of the majority, everyone is doing it so how can they be wrong? It's not surprising they believe that when the entire system is based on democracy.

Overall, it's not a simple symbiotic relationship between consumers and corporations.

Done with Baedan. I'm skimming through it again as I didn't took notes on what I would like to discuss so once I'm done with that I'll make a thread about it, no sure where, I guess this forum is fine.

I feel like redemption cancels out the past action which I don't think you can ever do as you can't erase it.

There is already far too many people that are willing to defend/ignore rapists and other sexual abuser. They will get community-based solution once we live in such a community. For now, I'm more interested in expressing how disgusting they are.

PS: For some reason this was really hard to write, I had such a hard time putting my thoughts into words. Not even sure I've express myself the way I wanted but I guess that will do.

Juan Duran, who said he’d been a fan of C.K.’s for years. Asked his thoughts on the jacking-off incidents, Duran said, “I don’t know him… It’s he said, she said.”

When it was pointed out that C.K. had admitted everything, Duran shifted gears. “Everyone deserves a road to redemption,” he said.

I can't stand spineless piece of shit like this fan. A sexual pest doesn't deserve to be redeemed, even less by being the same asshole.

Depends on the definition of democracy. The general idea is the majority rule (50% + 1) through voting. It's binary yes/no. Consensus is like a middle ground in the sense that it's still majority win but it goes into how can we solve the problem so everyone is satisfied enough to give a yes/no answer.

Democracy is always against minorities and it's not because a majority approve of something that it's good. If a choice as nothing to do with you, you shouldn't be able to decide on the result.

a)

  1. As ziq pointed out, mods are there for that.

  2. People that want to learn won't be able to access because they won't know how to answer.

  3. You can have a private channel on matrix.

b)

A better registration system for raddle would be nice and fix the bots and shitty users problem. Limiting comments and votes like the already existing limit on thread until one gets approved.

Perfect Blue is amazing! It's a real shame Satoshi Kon died so early, I've enjoy is work more than Miyazaki's. Ghost in the Shell was alright as far as I remember. I haven't watch Nausicaä but I did enjoy Princess Mononoke so I should take a look.

For the discussion about dubs and subs, you should make a separated thread so more people can see it. Probably on f/AskRaddle

Raddle should have a questionnaire and if the admins are alright with your answers you get to be on raddle. The entire site should be private, only members can read. Raddle should also have it's own economy, need to spend some points to be able to post, upvote, downvote etc. Users cannot talk with admins directly, that is moderators' job to represent the users of their forum. /s
