Why would I pay for your healthcare when I can have a system that just makes me overpay for my own?? Are you an investment banker? I'm pretty sure you can only save money with a medicare-for-all deal.

Also, a wall is basic infrastructure.

Yeah for a fucking house it is, not the middle of the desert

Finally watched Roma. Super good movie, everything I expected and more.

Talking with my Mexican friend, their mother grew up in Mexico City at the time the movie depicts and says it captured the feeling and the city very well

I don't think the article is without merits. I wasn't huge on the writing but it is pretty clear that many male comedians, and comedians of all genders, often rail against society criticizing them for ignorant and outdated material. I feel someone like Stewart Lee is a good example of a male comedian who understands good comedy that fits with the larger culture, even if some of his ironic satire can verge more on the side of recreation as opposed to actual satire.

Interesting to have one article praising Ellen and another attacking her

“Here you flood fields,” Caspi says. “An Israeli would say, ‘Are you kidding?’ It’s the mentality of abundance, that it’s going to last forever.”

Nothing frustrates me more than irrigation farming. Unfortunately drought will be a persistent reality for much of the world. We can only really fight it by getting rid of monocultures which sap nutrients and water

I can often find for the same price as non-organic which is nice, but typically my grocery shopping is based on two things: Ingredients and Price.

Maybe also Country of Origin which is always labelled; buying local and avoiding certain regions which I know are harmed by huge farming e.g. I avoid South African wines because it's all plantations that suck out the water from a country already in drought.

I hope you get to.

Generally when I go to a bigger city, the train is inexpensive and very convenient however I am going to a rather remote place and there wasn't any other option so the cost, amount of transfers, and time of travel are all bugging me!

Sure which is why I'm saying we should vegetables regardless of the ethics.

Fruits do fall off trees naturally and are evolutionary a product of mutual benefits between plants and animals so I think there may be no ethical argument against fruit eating. Just something to consider

What choices do you really have under capitalism?

to decide what they want to buy, how much they want to buy, where they want to live, where they want to work...

Making a lot of assumptions about the average person's buying power.

Also capitalism doesn't promote that. I agree statism is no solution either, but you seem to under the impression that Leftists support the state for some reason? Like you didn't read the thread at all

I watched Sorry to Bother You. Actually a pretty fantastic movie and surprisingly super radical in its politics. I think the ending was a nod to the whole "Eat the Rich" concept of violent revolution. Could have done without the little love triangle part but that was small.

Also rewatched Fargo with some friends. As fun as it is dark and sad

Very interesting. I recently took a long break because I've become very busy and it'll likely continue for a few more months but it's cool to be on the list. Cheers to everyone and let's continue in 2019

Well ultimately I am of the position that even if they do experience pain, we are still justified in eating whole plants. That being said, you referred to plants and funghi as if they are machines which science has shown is clearly false or at least no more true than it is for human consciousness which also is just responses to stimuli. So it is important to at least consider because as we understand distantly evolved organisms, we see they suffer and experience the world in very real ways even if they are foreign. So if you are opposed to slaughtering animals because it does them harm, you should at least consider the feelings of plants without calling them machines.

People thought lobsters couldn't feel pain, thus the boiling alive method of cooking. Octopuses have neurons spread throughout their body instead of a central brain. Clearly they are different but no less feeling. I am just saying it is important to consider and to determine how you feel about it

Sure, this was the recipe I used but I cut out a lot of thing I didn't have and it turned out fine

3/4 cup rice

3/4 cup mango

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon salt coriander leaves (For garnishing)

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon mustard

2 teaspoons chana dal

2 teaspoons urad dal

6 cashew

1/2 teaspoon jeera

2 red chilli

2 green chilli

1 sprig curry leaves

2 teaspoons ginger

1 pinch asafoetida

I just used rice, mango, tumeric, olive oil (but seasame oil is really good so get it if you can), 150g of cashews, curry paste, and ginger

How do you what plant consciousness is like? Everything that I have learned from recent biology and evolutionary science has shown to me that plants have a different but still developed type of consciousness, and that human tend to overestimate how 'un-robotic' we really are. Again, I support eating whole plants but I recommend the book The Secret Life of Plants which had some interesting stuff.
