favorite is either f/Anarchism because there's always good stuff to read or f/AskRaddle, because of conversations. i tend to learn a lot in these two.

least favorite is f/The_Donald maybe? even though i post there sometimes i don't subscribe. i hear about that dude from the liberals in my life and the news, need a break from that shithead. news about him isn't the only news on this planet.

The Predator, not great but overall the actors did a decent job and it was fun enough to watch.

Abducted In Plain Sight, a documentary about a girl who survived rape and molestation. Obviously horrible situation but wild listening to how this guy groomed her and manipulated her family.

(edit for clarity)

i’m cool with direct consensus based democracy but if there are better ways to make decisions i’m open to that.

otherwise would you say voting always equals democracy? not a question i have an answer for but it just popped in my head so i thought i’d ask it here

depends on what cultures and where. people’s food choices don’t exist in a vacuum and are informed by life experiences, culture, etc. i think if you can make vegetable based substitution options for people that aren’t like, created in a lab that’s probably the best thing, black bean burgers are a good example.

Obviously there were no missiles in Cuba.

what?

the moscow-washington hotline came out of it, and the USSR was embarrassed.

the United States won by threatening them and they didn't do anything on their end.

i mean yeah kind of. the US had to take missile systems out of turkey and italy, but i don't think that was public at the time, at least in the US. also the agreement between Kennedy and Khrushchev essentially said the US wouldn't invade Cuba
