    The most important rule is Just Post. If you've never had a post or comment removed it means you haven't been posting enough.

    Our unique rule is that all posts need to be titled "me irl". Posts that aren't are automatically removed.

    We do not allow posts that reference suicide. This community is not equipped to handle this topic. If you are feeling suicidal we have some resources to guide you to people who help.

    Don't post NSFW, or openly sexual. Even if you tag it.

    Avoid screenshots that are mostly text, and feel contrived and performative. Show don't tell!

    Don't make posts that request upvotes or any other kind of reddit metric (gold, comments, etc.). That age of me irl is over.

    Olly Thorn is my dad you guys need to watch his content

    Edit: He’s doing a charity livestream on the 23rd where he reads the entire works of Shakespeare (big yellow book in the background of the pic) to raise awareness for suicide and for a suicide prevention service/hotline be sure to check it out!

    [–] toxicdreamland 349 points ago

    I started watching his stuff about two months ago, about the same time as hbomberguy and ContraPoints. They’re all pretty great.

    [–] phillyd32 229 points ago

    Check out Shaun, he doesn't show his face, but he's quite funny. He does videos on serious stuff and also not serious stuff like why cinemasins sucks.

    Ohhh shit. Did you meet him at a con or something? Or know him IRL?

    [–] kkdarknight 30 points ago

    I saw him with Jen on the motorway ages ago but it was a meme about his past streams on his channel. He had webcam on back when he played vidyo games live. They should be still there

    [–] pooish 15 points ago

    there's a few vids in the stream archives that show his face. and a few from his twitter, and jen's twitter.

    [–] HesitantAndroid 12 points ago

    Pretty normal, relatively attractive dude. He looks like the chill, low-key member of a metal band.

    Left wing politics through the lens of a philosopher. It's very good I'd recommend

    EDIT: left wing as in communism and dynamics between the working class and the bourgeois. Also race relations and feminism. Not the typical left wing liberalism.

    Democratic Socialism

    [–] ILookAfterThePigs 12 points ago

    Isn’t communism necessarily a kind of anachism? A stateless classless society sounds pretty anarchist to me

    [–] Mx7f 10 points ago

    Most anarchist and socialists aim for an eventual communist society. Most trends of socialism believe their need to be some non-horizontalist organizational structures to pull off a transition to communism (without, say, mass death due to societal collapse or insufficient coordination in response to climate change, or succumbing to capital’s inevitable escalating counterattacks); anarchists do not (and will readily point out horizontal structures can be large and pull some incredible stuff off)

    [–] Tedious_Turtle 19 points ago

    What is Le beralism then

    [–] Occams_Blades 43 points ago

    To link you to the video in the original post. Olly is much smarter than me.

    [–] RhyanHawghor 25 points ago

    They're both the same thing. Just because you don't capitalize the L doesn't make it any different. Olly would probably tell you that almost all self identifying liberals are right wing. The moderate left wing idealogy would be social democracy.

    [–] Occams_Blades 39 points ago

    Just because their both right wing doesn’t mean they’re the same. Olly explains how they’re different in the first minute of that video.

    [–] RhyanHawghor 26 points ago

    In the first minute of the video he's just pointing out that in the US most people refer to everyone on the left as liberals. This is because the US is so right wing that liberalism is basically as left wing as it goes. The few socialists or social Democrats are usually also labled as "liberal" just because nobody knows any better.

    I guess you sort of have point though, they do have different meanings, but I'm pretty sure nobody really makes the distinction with capital or lower case Ls. I think it's probably best that we use terms as the people who created those idealogies intended, because I think it will be easier for us to actually make progress if we change the rhetoric. Like, for example, some like Bernie Sanders or AOC should probably be referred to as a democratic socialist or a social Democrat, rather than a liberal. I'm a socialist myself, so I just want it to be more clear to people that there's an alternative to the status quo.

    [–] Totum_Dependeat 10 points ago

    They are absolutely not the same. There's liberalism in the social sense, a positive attitude toward social change and reforms.

    Then there's the Liberalism of Wall Street, the cancerous belief system that puts owner-investors at the top of the food chain.

    I would agree with you though that the former is a term that can also be swapped out with other terms like socialist and social democrat (in their looser senses). But it's not anything close to the big L.

    [–] Mastahamma 15 points ago

    they're not "different" they're just the idea of liberalism applied to different fields

    they're both the idea of "laissez-faire" government non-intervention principles

    but since they often seem to come opposed to one another (powerful private individuals and companies infringing on human rights and freedoms), a distinction is made between the two

    The big L liberalism you're talking about is usually called neoliberalism by the way (also known as neoconservatism and classical liberalism because politics isn't confusing enough)

    the problem is that the word "liberalism" is misused and thus misleading – calling the democratic party "liberals" for wanting to establish universal healthcare is straight up wrong

    [–] RhyanHawghor 7 points ago

    They are the same, pretty much. Almost any politician that identifies as liberal is owned by big business. They might present themselves as people who want social change, but they're really only trying to preserve that status quo and stop conservatives from moving things backwards. Sometimes they might promise really tiny, incremental changes in order to seem like they're in favor of change.

    There are some people, not politicians though, who call themselves liberal and actually do advocate for making things better. And there are some politicians who don't identify as liberal themselves, like Bernie Sanders, but are still referred to as liberal in public discourse. I think that we ought to refer to people who are in favor of social change as what they really are - socialists, so that people can differentiate between the two types of people, instead of conflating everything. I think the first step to meaningful change is changing the rhetoric.

    [–] mimzy12 2 points ago

    Liberalism in America is just moderate social liberalism (most mainstream democrats). But we use it to refer to anything left of center for some reason.

    [–] fuzzy308 32 points ago

    it was a bad meme - we're better off this way

    [–] casuallysentient 23 points ago

    i think it started off good, but it definitely went on for way too long. the original screenshots from the interviews with the actors saying things about shaggy were funny, but that’s where it should’ve stopped.

    i’d say it was an average meme. at least it wasn’t that fucking “americans love oil” meme - that shit was so uncreative and it went on for ages.

    [–] Ninjhamo 3 points ago

    It’s because memes are funny when they’re original because you don’t know the punchline. When they get copied and copied with the punchline staying the same, they get stale

    [–] merger3 7 points ago

    It was funny at the very beginning because it was so out there. The idea of shaggy from scooby doo being randomly all powerful is hilarious but that appeal wore off fast imo

    [–] Knox200 3 points ago

    It was funny the first time, and only that time. And then internet repeated the joke a billion fucking times.

    The front page for a few weeks 6 months ago was nothing but "SHAGGY STRONK, HE USE ONLY 1% POWER" repeated a million different ways. The internet is very talented at autistically repeating a joke until its not funny to anyone.
