    [–] Friday Fun Thread! 2legit2fart 2 points ago in politics

    Century of The Self, parts 1-4, and HyperNormalisation.

    Watch them both. Century of The Self is about manipulation of the population via public relations and marketing, and how it was co-opted by politicians.

    HyperNormalisation is about pretending that everything is OK when it’s clearly not. This is best understood in thinking about the years of the USSR right before it collapsed. It’s practiced still in Russia, and newly in the US.

    IMO these events are all happening again right now. “Fake news” is a great example.

    Honestly, you can’t trust people on Reddit right now, not posters not moderators. We are in an information war, and a lot of folks don’t know they’ve been manipulated; a lot of people are going along because “those were my orders”. Honestly, watch these videos and keep your eyes open.

    Because the mods are compromised.

    [–] Donald Trump 'secretly taped talking about Playboy model payment' 2legit2fart 1 points ago in politics

    No that is not rehosted content. That sounds like a subjective interpretation of your policy, not an accurate description of the article. It's not copy pasted material. And there are no links.

    Pretty much any other news organization that reports on the same story would then, by your definition, fit that standard. That's literally what news is.

    [–] What Trump Voters Think Of Trump's Russia Comments 2legit2fart 3 points ago in politics

    The only reason this tool was on NPR is because he just released a book. The drivel is part of his publicity tour.

    [–] [Serious] What simple daily habits have large tangible benefits? 2legit2fart 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Floss daily and avoid sweets.

    (I floss 363 days of the year. My gums do not bleed at the dentist.)

    Why were you afraid of dentists?

    Also, don’t just brush. You need to floss. No bloody gums.

    I just got a little bank book, and manually do it. Just write down everything you spend.

    Fixed payments are easy.

    [–] Rand Paul blocks Sanders Russia resolution, calls it 'crazy hatred' against Trump 2legit2fart 1 points ago in politics

    Rand Paul in particular as pretty extreme. He feels that it’s all hatred against Trump. Maybe he and McConnell get together in KY to strategerize about how to defend Trump so they can get what they want.

    [–] Between Maria Butina and Sacha Baron Cohen, Conservatives Look Like the World’s Biggest Suckers 2legit2fart 45 points ago in politics

    The thing is, the “joke” is not actually funny. It’s usually some judgmental observation about some group or another.

    I love jokes about race, but they have to actually be funny.
