    Still #1 in prison population, even in per capita. Something to keep in mind when you hear about China or Russia being too loose with throwing people in jail.

    As a Canadian I’ve never had a wait time issue in my life. I think there’s a big push to scaremonger about public (not socialist, socialism is not when the government does things) healthcare because some people have made so much money off of it, and the US seems like it’s about to take the leap. Our conservatives have also tried to quietly move back towards privatization in Ontario, in a low key fashion because the move would be so unpopular here, even among the Canadian right.

    Also worth mentioning that our setup is also very similar to the UK and many other developed nations.

    God I hope devs aren’t scared to release full price games this length because everything being 40 hours long isn’t something I’d love to see.

    If the Democrats have any interest in winning they should be spreading this non-stop. This is one of the few things that would cause him to lose support from a significant portion of his base.

    [–] One Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 playthrough will last “about 30 hours” PeteOverdrive 2 points ago in Games

    I mean 30-40 hours will take me a month/months to get through, even if it’s the only thing I play, so as long as it’s not padded I don’t want it to be any longer.

    It’s an RPG. This isn’t a perfect comparison, but the most similar popular game I could compare it to is Elder Scrolls/Fallout. However, if it’s anything like the first, expect a smaller world, fewer side quests, but a very strong main quest.

    [–] Elizabeth Warren is viewed more favorably than Joe Biden among Democrats PeteOverdrive 0 points ago in politics

    Now, realize that these people are the more likely voters, and that if he's the most unfavorable candidate among Dems because he's too far left, he's also the least likely to pick up undecided voters.

    I don’t think there’s a 1:1 relation here. There are lifelong Republicans who find Trump unfavourable, but he was able to develop a sizeable base from swing voters. It’s a mistake to think that “undecided” means “in the centre ideologically.” A lot of the time they’re simply disillusioned, and people who offer greater change from the political status quo are the most appealing.

    I’d say he’s the most likely to pick up undecided voters. The rest are standard Democrats, with the possible exception of Warren. If a voter couldn’t be relied upon to vote blue in past elections, they cannot be relied upon to vote for any of these other guys.

    [–] Sanders Unveils Plan to End Cash Bail, Ban Private Prisons, and 'Fundamentally Transform' US Criminal Justice System - "If we stand together, we can eliminate private prisons and detention centers. No more profiteering from locking people up." PeteOverdrive 2 points ago in politics

    Private insurance is bad. It makes things more expensive. The UK has had public healthcare through the NHS since the ‘40s. Do you think they’ve been Communist since?

    The right has done such a good job of calling welfare under Capitalism “Socialism and Communism” that nobody knows what those words actually mean.

    This isn’t true. Mass incarceration has increased over the past couple decades, after the creation of private prisons. They profit off of locking people up, and thus lobby to make more things illegal. A lot of these people either a) did something minor like weed possession that earned them an insane sentence, or b) have addiction or mental health issues that we could treat by sending them to other facilities, but don’t because we can profit off of their slave labour.

    There are other countries that have fewer prisoners per capita, but are safer than the US.

    The worst villains of the US are the ones who never get locked up. Epstein’s clients, the people who blew up the economy in ‘08, etc.

    Him being president would help, especially in terms of using his platform to highlight certain issues.

    But it wouldn’t be enough. Luckily, voting is just one tool people have in their toolbox. Protesting, organizing, striking, these are all things people can do to push against the wealthy and powerful. For as much as they like to pretend otherwise, they still need us to work to keep doing what they’re doing. When people stand together they have leverage.

    It wouldn’t have been such a discussion online, but it probably would have gotten even worse reviews.

    That game got 7s, and at least part of that was the AAA bump. If an unknown team makes it under a new name it would have gotten 5s.
