    [–] Traitor. Upvote this so that people see it when they Google "Traitor". NorthernLove1 30 points ago in The_Mueller

    Wow. Just wow. If Obama had kowtowed to Putin like this, Republican GOPs would have gone NUTS and Fox News would talk about it for years.

    [–] It does not harm philosophy as a discipline to discuss the apparently meager practical effects of studying ethics -- at least it doesn't harm philosophy in the long-term (maybe in the short term). NorthernLove1 1 points ago in philosophy

    You said, "Theories and structures that have no power to predict the future will have less relevance to society." Your statement is a version of positivism, and positivism has been thoroughly eviscerated. Positivism is indeed a failed theory. Your statement, for example, is self-defeating, since if it is true, then it falls prey to its own critique. Notice this: the statement itself has no power to predict the future, and so it is not relevant to society. Positivism like this is just another bad theory. https://mechanism.ucsd.edu/teaching/philsci/bechtel.pos.ch3.pdf

    [–] The greatest moral challenge of our time is how we think about morality itself NorthernLove1 1 points ago in philosophy

    Peter Singer is an antirealist in metaethics and a utilitarian in normative ethics. Pretty easy.

    [–] What nonsense did you believe for way too long before you found out it was made up? NorthernLove1 2 points ago in AskReddit

    That all old people are wise due to more experience of life. This is not the case, as I learned when I got older.

    [–] What is a subtle sign that someone is emotionally mature? NorthernLove1 0 points ago in AskReddit

    When someone can accept difficult truths that challenge their sense of self. For example, accepting that white privilege exists is a sign of emotional maturity among white people. Many white people react with strong negative emotions to a discussion of white privilege.

    The same goes for a smoker who admits that second-hand smoke can hurt children. Or for a gun owner who admits that epidemiologists and public health researchers are pretty much right about the safety of guns in the home.

    This is a quote from the first page of "Impulsivity and sexual assault in college men" by Mouilso, Calhoun, & Rosenbloom, in Violence Vict 2013; 28(3): 429-42...

    "Sexual assault is a relatively common occurrence on American college campuses. Research with college men has consistently documented high rates of self-reported perpetration. Specifically, 25%-58% of men report perpetration of some form of sexual assault (i.e., nonconsensual sexual contact broadly defined) and 8%-14% report acts that meet the legal definition for rape (i.e., nonconenual attempted or completed oral, anal, or vaginal penetration; Koss, Gidycz, & Wisniewski, 1987; Voller & Long, 2010; Zawacki, Abbey, Buck, McAuslan, & Clinton-Sherrod, 2003."

    [–] [Serious] What are some of the biggest mistakes people can make in their 20s? NorthernLove1 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Thinking they can party and hang out without serious career development. If you get behind in your 20s, you are going to be behind forever.

    I actually underestimated the prevalence of sexual assault by college men. Let me quote directly from a research article by experts on college rape.

    [–] 403b 12k to invest in what? NorthernLove1 3 points ago in personalfinance

    Roll it over in a low-cost index fund like Vanguard's Total Stock Market Index. I'd call Vanguard and ask how to roll over. Also read... https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Getting_started

    [–] I am Clare Chambers, philosopher working on contemporary political philosophy and author of 'Against Marriage: An Egalitarian Defence of the Marriage-Free State'. AMA! NorthernLove1 1 points ago in philosophy

    The state has many interests, which include equality and liberty, and other things (e.g., stability, a growing population, etc.). States are like people; they desire and need many things that are in tension with one another.
