We need TWO new parties. Right centrist and left centrist. What exists now are far right and far left.


No. You have two economic far right partoes, one conservative, one liberal.

If you think the dems are far left, for the love of god, read a book.

So many parties have never been able to get a toe hold in the US. It's easy to scoff at the idea that this one will fail too. But, the Dem's and Rep's are so polarized right now, that perhaps the timing is right. If they get the right marketing, maybe it can work. To a foreigner like me it's quite ...

I still think it makes no sense to leave the link to the dislike option and disable it. Oh, well. I've watched social media censorship get worse and worse for years, but nobody here seems to get what I'm talking about. Everybody noticed, but "censorship" is often not the right word. Getti...

The US sure needs some new blood, but a party inbetween neoliberal liberals and neoliberal christian fundamentalists sounds pretty much like they aren't interested in changing anything substantially. What new blood are you wanting? Though by middle ground, they (Yang and Whitman) likely mean betwee...

I was going to say something along the lines of "what could possibly go wrong if you interprete 'freedom of speech' to mean people can call their little club 'rapekrieg'" But then I remembered that groups like that over here have names like NSU and actually kill people, i.e., they get pros...

Oh no, they're not going to be edgelords anymore? God help us, clearly all freedom has been lost because they've voluntarily chosen to be less edgy. What's wrong with edginess? Is it required? Are they obliged to keep being as immature as always? You're whining over a non-issue and framing it like ...

Be careful what you wish for, as the old saying goes, because you might just get it. Democrats believe extreme candidates would be easier to defeat, without taking into consideration that extremism might just be what's being looked for in more conservative areas. The Dems might just be planting the...

I believe in 100% predeterminism and 0% free will. I look at astrology sometimes, when I put my birthday into a website to get my chart calculated I read the interpretation and it was so accurate that I cant believe in free will anymore..and after becoming Christian the bible denies free will prett...

As t.v. show, the US basically nuked the fridge. Had a conversation yesterday about someone tweeting something about climate change and first reply was "but socialism never worked"... It's not that I think Americans are more stupid than other people, but they're so much faster at being stu...

But prescribing pills is so much easier than telling people to quit the job they hate, leave the city they can't afford and stop chasing a dream that simply can't be achieved by millions of people at the same time.

Our society needs most of us desperate, but in working condition.

Hitler was in a cushy prison after the Beer Hall Putsch. He wrote a book there, Mein Kampf, which means "My Struggle" in German. That prison sentence, proof of not being part of the establishment, vote for me scam is getting so old. If it's not prison it's some other public injustice and ...

I've always wanted to try something that reads brain waves, it always seemed kind of crazy to me. This here works through apple's ARKit, which is a machine learning model that is trained to interpret faces and outputs numeric values, like "eyebrows up 50%", which you can either use to ani...

Technically, yes. I know there are a few devices that read brain waves, but only extremely low resolution, so thinking "forward" could work as a signal, while thinking "backward" may not be distinguishable from "forward", so you'd need to think something very different,...

First: the game runs on PC, but requires a modern-ish iPhone running the facial motion capture app. With that said: here it is: https://shlaifu.itch.io/faceball Faceball, the greatest face controlled game I know of. Yes, you control it with your face via facial mo-cap. Both the game and the unity mo...
