But if I were a billionaire in the energy sector, I'd put 3/4 of my net worth into making fusion a reality. I never even mentioned the word "cold" fusion, I know how it works. Sure, I was the one who specified “cold” fusion because we have fusion, that’s not the issue… the issue is it bei...

There are three answers. 1) what do you mean by “we”? 2) what do you mean by “support” 3) what do you mean by “abuse human rights”? Broadly, I think the question you’re trying to ask is “why do democratic, liberal Western governments maintain cordial relations with governments that do a variety of s...

OK. I am a man. That's one gender. I used to be a boy. That's two genders. Women and girls exist. That's four genders. And people who don't fit into these categories also exist , and have done since time immemorial [1] [2] [3] . This isn't magic - it's an observed fact. There are many more genders ...

You are talking about gender after offering research on studies done on the topic of transitioning. This is like offering scientific data about climate change but also believing the earth is flat. The idea of multiple genders is just pure lunacy. Supposedly there is even e field on that, "Gend...

1. Emancipating blacks without making sure they have a place to go, nobody to care for them. 2. Appointing black officials without the consent of the governed, leading to resentment and violence, not to mention bribery and other corruption 3. Exposing blacks to violence by freeing them, giving them...

Why did Stalin and Mao get state funerals? Because their parties still controlled their countries. The Nazi Party were deposed by the time Germany could have held a state funeral for Hitler. If Goebbels had pulled off an unlikely victory, then the Nazis would probably have held a state funeral for ...

I read your references and what struck me in the first reference you posted is this, "All of the studies were judged to be at moderate to high risk of bias." It seems that the people themselves who did the study didn't have much faith in it. As Mikah notes, there is always a risk of bias ...

3. Not sure why Walrus says min wage should be no more than 55% of median, but here based on google results it’s roughly 60% and is still nowhere near enough of an income to have any sort of quality of life. After tax full time minimum wage Nets $1700 or so. It now costs more than $1000/mo just to ...

The fact that a few years ago there was a consensus about the inefficiency of gender reassignment in alleviating gender dysphoria, and that now somehow there seems to be a debate about the obvious, it's a sign of heavy interference of woke politics with the scientific research. Gosh, where to begin...

There’s very little geopolitical advantage to Afghanistan for the US. It’s a very poor country, with a challenging geopolitical situation, on the other side of the world. Historically it was interesting to the Mongols, the Persians, the British Empire and the Soviet Union (and the rest) because it w...

I can see why, from a theoretical, ideological point of view, one might be opposed to the minimum wage. If I was starting from first principles, I wouldn’t have a minimum wage. I would guarantee a basic standard of living through a universal basic income funded by tax, and allow people to offer any ...

I've noticed that transgenderism has become too much a matter for political debate. It's kind of strange. I mean what is the percentage of people with gender dysphoria? It’s very small. In recent years there has been a huge surge in open transphobia. It really sucks. Part of this is the usual Russi...

No, but the transphobes don’t actually care about children, they just want to control how other people express their gender.

The truth is that none of us are perfect. We all, inevitably, have blind spots - we cannot possibly know what exactly everyone we meet will be sensitive about. We all get stuff wrong. We make mistakes sometimes. Some of you may find this hard to believe (joke), but sometimes I can be rude, dismissiv...

We have built At Least enough housing to cover our population growth. At LEAST. https://www.ubcm.ca/sites/default/files/2022-03/Final-UBCM%20Housing%20Position%20Paper.pdf By one of Andy Yan's estimates I read a couple years back, during some recent years we actually built, iirc, 26% more units of ...
