@trinsec Heh heh yes they are good battle trophies that way. But I think there's something about putting colored marks on maps using them (the ones you make, that is) too.



I need to remind myself how banners and anvils and tags and stuff work... :)

Can we stop using mental illness as a label when talking about police brutality and white supremacy?

No, they aren't psychopaths. They're racists.

They aren't sociopaths. They're racists.

They aren't narcissists. They're racist.

If you label them as being mentally ill, you're:
a) being shitty towards those of us with mental illness

b) giving them an excuse for their bullshit.

Please stop it.

hmmm, a diamond axe would be a pretty good weapon, wouldn't it?

I wonder why I use axes only for wood, and swords as weapons?

Remember those German academics who developed a fraud detector that actually did nothing but look at whether the authors used institutional email addresses, had international collaborators, and were affiliated with a hospital?

And then they concluded, based on this "detector", that a high fraction of the papers out of Asia and the Global South are fraudulent?

And then they got a glowing writeup in Science?

(If you missed it: fediscience.org/@ct_bergstrom/)

Turns out there's data on all this.

Yep, definitely interesting stuff! Certainly care/harm is a really common and (subjectively) important axis; why that is, social-psychologically, would be an interesting study.

No problem at all! Good discussion, and now I'm going to read some Wilber. :)


Sure. I would state this just as "often finding out a new fact changes what we think we ought to do" which is easier to spell :) but I think synonymous.


Yes, science can definitely tell us about non-subjective effects that will cause our organs and tissues to fail more or less quickly.

Science cannot tell us anything about the moral or categorical-imperative consequences of those effects.

"But all such information is known within minds embedded in socio-cultural contexts."

Sure, I don't think I've said anything that would conflict with that.
