    But it wasn't a virus [...], it was just a twisted protein, [...] compelling normal proteins on the surface of nerve cells to contort just like them.

    So not a virus but rather a pathogen which behaves just like a virus?

    It's less about gender and more about perpetuating traditional roles, whatever they may be. Surprise.

    Traditional is virtually synonymous with procreation in this day and age. The ways of old are about perpetuating your way of life through birthing and rearing the next generation directly. We no longer have the need to do this because technology affords us both the opportunity to influence others in perpetuity without rearing the next generation directly and the freedom to choose if we wish to birth or not our offspring. This way of life, sometimes referred to incorrectly as "western" is simply modernity's answer to antiquity's call to freedom.

    The future is now and it is in direct conflict with rigid structure norms. In this day and age, ideas fight for survival as organisms; more and more ideas will live and die based on their strength not the strength of tradition which backs them.

    It was pulling the bill in a sudden jerk at the last possible moment. Vastly different.

    Cool. I mean we always knew that it's the same cesspool of humanity that frequents those same subs but it's kinda cool there's an algebraic expression that can validate the premise. They are nothing if not predictable those altright misogynists.

    I do see her point on companies exploiting and abusing "gig economy" to profit at the expense of "their" employees. That shit is toxic and needs to stop.

    But worker rights are never an automatic given of any system of government. They have to be explicitly fought for, enacted and nurtured actively, again and again. It is the business of business to maximize profit, it is the business of government to preserve the status quo, it is the business of the people to protect themselves and petition the government for the right to vote, right to work in safety, right to retire with dignity etc. It is exhausting and we all need to get on with our business.

    And it doesn't help when people work against their own interests electing business representatives into government and denouncing protests thereof.

    Be all that as it may...

    At the root of this is the American obsession with self-reliance, which makes it more acceptable to applaud an individual for working himself to death than to argue that an individual working himself to death is evidence of a flawed economic system.

    Not so fast. At the root of this are scarce resources getting scarcer and humans consuming them getting more and more plentiful. This juggernaut is a force of nature, it is unavoidable in that circumstance that competition is ever present. No matter which ism claims it can mitigate it, people have to fight for survival.

    Is our economic system flawed? Sure.

    Is it less flawed than 200 years ago? You bettya. For one thing - slavery is abolished as a legal economic mechanism. Big check.

    Is our economic system getting better? Only to the extent we are willing to pursue its "betterness" and only if we measure the progress in centuries. Generations will live and die before it gets better.

    Globally, life expectancy is up and rising, infant mortality deaths are down and dropping, poverty is down and dropping, infectious diseases are down and dropping, etc. The objective data is telling us that human life, on average, is better on the planet than it ever was.

    Do we have problems? Yes.

    Are those problems difficult to resolve? Yes.

    How do we with fewer resources than ever before feed more people than ever before, and percentages of elderly are higher than ever before? I don't know... But somehow, productivity of able-bodied has to go up. The alternative is that the number of elderly has to go down. The math is clear :/ Nobody takes joy in reporting these facts but they are facts.

    The unprecedented post-war economic boom which paid for worker compensations and retirement packages which were offered then and there and never before is a blimp in the long history of struggle for survival against famine. My great-grandfather told my father back in the 70s that "people never lived like this before in his lifetime or his father's". His generation remembered a time before prosperity allowed middle classes to work less and retire earlier but he never had that good fortune and neither does this generation.

    In the end we will all die. Dying from work is just another way to die. We used to die a lot more from disease, famine and war. A lot of us still do. Dying from exhaustion in an ergonomic chair in an air-conditioned room is still preferential to dying of exhaustion in a poorly-ventilated mine shaft. Nobody is celebrating this macabre choice. Everyone is just trying to survive. Exploitative companies included.

    Sideways Dictionary

    Sideways dictionary — it's like a dictionary, but using analogies instead of definitions. Use it as a tool for finding and sharing helpful analogies to explain technological ideas. Because if everyone understands technology better, we can make technology work better for everyone.

    “The way they talked it was supposed to be better,” Peek said.

    ? Isn't it high time you learned that just because people say what you want to hear it doesn't mean they are not full of shit? Especially people who wear a tie on TV. I can't believe this is not a lesson you did not learn in 65 years on this here planet. It also explains how Agent Orange got elected to be POTUS

    Still? I'm sorry- at what point did they ever stop?

    Is there a period in human history between 1950s and now I am not aware of where 3-6 billion people en masse practiced and taught their children critical thinking above all other principles including religious dogma, political doctrine and obedience to authority?

    I'm so glad that between POTUS, public personas and journalists all the really important issues are being addressed.
