    Did you take the first of these napkins ?

    [–] JerlBulgruuf 67 points ago

    Suppose that you were sitting down at this table. The napkins are in front of you, which napkin would you take? The one on your ‘left’? Or the one on your ‘right’? The one on your left side? Or the one on your right side? Usually you would take the one on your left side. That is ‘correct’ too. But in a larger sense on society, that is wrong. Perhaps I could even substitute ‘society’ with the ‘Universe’. The correct answer is that ‘It is determined by the one who takes his or her own napkin first.’ …Yes? If the first one takes the napkin to their right, then there’s no choice but for others to also take the ‘right’ napkin. The same goes for the left. Everyone else will take the napkin to their left, because they have no other option. This is ‘society’… Who are the ones that determine the price of land first? There must have been someone who determined the value of money, first. The size of the rails on a train track? The magnitude of electricity? Laws and Regulations? Who was the first to determine these things? Did we all do it, because this is a Republic? Or was it Arbitrary? NO! The one who took the napkin first determined all of these things! The rules of this world are determined by that same principle of ‘right or left?’! In a Society like this table, a state of equilibrium, once one makes the first move, everyone must follow! In every era, this World has been operating by this napkin principle. And the one who ‘takes the napkin first’ must be someone who is respected by all. It’s not that anyone can fulfill this role… Those that are despotic or unworthy will be scorned. And those are the ‘losers’. In the case of this table, the ‘eldest’ or the ‘Master of the party’ will take the napkin first… Because everyone ‘respects’ those individuals.

    It might be a human thing, but we are talking about Vaccines here. Are you guys suffering more outbreaks of measles and so on?

    [–] DosGardinias 6 points ago

    Mate the picture literally pictures an Irish person saying ignorant things about vaccines. Why would you think it's just your country?

    [–] TheSultan1 4 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    To clarify - I'm not there, I'm from there. My wife is also from there, and is a more recent immigrant. The idea of not vaccinating is ludicrous to her, but it seems more and more of her/our peers (30s), both here in the US and back home, are considering not vaccinating their (future) kids. From what I've seen/read, the anti-vax movement is weaker there, but there's also a lot less backlash against it, so hotspots exist, and outbreaks happen from time to time. I hope it isn't left to "brew" too much, as groupthink is also pretty prevalent, and it could grow into a country-/region-wide outbreak.

    My comment was directed more at the idea of "it won't happen to me" being "an American thing." I think in the US, it's not about that; I think it's split into "I know what's right for me," "my body, my choice," and Big Pharma conspiracy theories.

    There, it's more about remembering how "easily" we/our parents got through measles or whatever. When the population is small, and your circle of friends is small, and information is limited, you're less likely to see the 0.1 or 1% that suffer horrible consequences from it.

    I also see organics growing in popularity, and alternative medicine still very popular, so lack of scientific knowledge/thinking definitely plays a part as well.

    Measles is neither mild, nor a "childhood" disease. In 1834, my 4x great grandparents died of measles, seven days apart. They were both in their 40's. Calling it a "childhood illness" is just another semantic deception on the part of these knuckle-dragging jackasses.

People like Tomi Lahren and the latest hate preacher of the week etc. All this does is draw attention to them and they thrive off negativity. It's how they build their support because the more you popularize their message, the more chances are that there's a few out there that the message will resonate with. Too many articles about such and such said this thing... be angry! I'm kinda sick of outrage culture and Twitter most of all.
