Libertarian ideology is the natural enemy of science

Not going to go into much detail with this, as the entire article emits bogon after bogon, but I'll highlight this bit of projection:

Quote
The ruthlessly individualist philosophy fetishised by the modern disciplines of Ayn Rand conveniently ignores the fact that humans do not exist in a vacuum, and that individual actions often have consequences for all. The mantra that profit is a panacea for everything and that personal rights trump collective good is frequently misguided and potentially disastrous.

I think people didn't like his Britney video because they didn't realize he was parodying Britney fans.

It was a rather popular target for parody in itself, though.

General Discussion / Netherlands v. Erdogan
« Last post by Ibrahim90 on March 21, 2017, 04:17:20 AM »
So, any comments on the Netherlands' troubles with Erdogan?

For those who don't know: the Dutch deported two Turkish ambassadors, who were agitating the Turkish immigrants so that they may support Erdogan for another term and for constitutional amendments.

I'm personally with the Dutch on this: Erdogan had no business interfering with another country, and what he did is I understand very illegal even by Turkish law, but doubtless people are going to be either blowing this out of proportion, or otherwise ignore it.

I was busy with school (wrapping up my Masters') so I couldn't bring this up till now.

Well, everyone has to grow up at some point. Glad to see him speak sense.

With that in mind, I'm with Shane on this: I don't even think bathrooms need to be segregated in the first place.

No, seriously:  https://twitter.com/AnarchoDoggy/status/839730082344230913
Basically, he uses the argument that "criminals don't obey the law!" that we've been using against gun control for decades now, only this time taking it against the "trans people in bathrooms" nonsense.  Something that could easily be applied to support the position of gender neutral multi-occupancy bathrooms. :)  I was legit surprised to see a voice of reason in the same guy made infamous for his "LEAVE BRITTNEY ALONE!" video about 10 years ago.

General Discussion / Re: An update on Cindy Prior

And another update:

She just had leave to appeal the dismissal of her case against the students denied.  (In this case, this is leave from the court making the ruling, not the appellate court.)  This indicates that the court can see no manner in which the claim could be vindicated.  Since her claim against the university appears to be based on the university failing to take appropriate steps against students who, to all appearances from these rulings, did no wrong to her, it would appear that her residual case against the university is likely doomed as well.  In that case, she'll likely end up on  the hook for their costs as well, which are likely to be rather a lot more than the student's were.

Even in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, they aren't just hurling rocks, and it isn't any sort of surprise attack.  They're using the cargo drones that are no longer being used to deliver grain, in response to an attempted military occupation from Earth, and they drones are being sent in such huge quantities that they're saturating Earth's defenses.  (They send so many that Cheyenne Mountain is physically destroyed after a prolonged bombardment.  Not the base inside the mountain, the actual mountain.  They find themselves somewhat embarrassed when Mike, the central computer, informs them that they destroyed a mountain, mostly because nobody was paying attention to how much damage they were really doing to it.)
