No. We only know what science is because of philosophy. If that basis for science became science, then the truth of science would have to presuppose itself, a set of ideas that would be true in and of themselves, which is clearly fallacious.

Also, the sciences deal with descriptive reality. They say nothing about how the world should be or how we should act.


That is a psychology wiki article about authoritarian personality, not about authoritarianism.

What most people mean by authoritarianism is a form of government. You are an anarchist right? You would agree the state is just the way the ruling class asserts its position, and that all states have this monopoly of the legitimate use of violence. If that’s what a state is, how can one state have more of a monopoly than another? A monopoly is a monopoly. However you see it, the class in power rules absolutely. No state is more authoritarian or libertarian than any other.



It’s a planned feature. Just not one the devs are working on right now.

I think the instances should be fully connected as possible, but this isn’t a design flaw that admins can block instances. It is their resources going into hosting, so they should be able to decide how they want to run their own instances. Having the software prevent them from doing this would be developer overreach.


Sadly some people do this without getting good pay and a cool badge.


I support this feature. But Wikipedia is not an authority on what fascism is. The dictionary attempts to describe the usage of a word in this case as it relates to an objective phenomenon. Before we can attempt this description, an understanding of the objective phenomenon must be had. We can rely on definitions for understood phenomena like water, jogging, or birds. But what exactly fascism is is a hotly debated topic, not a well understood phenomenon that we hold absolute knowledge and certainty of. Even your dictionary source admits it is a characterization of fascism, not exactly a definition.

A conservative will reason discursively that Hitler was a leftist, because the Left can be defined as more government, so Fascism is far left. In the same way, that buzzfeed employee could argue their own view of what misogyny is. To them, when a man spreads their legs in public, this is the sexist act of manspreading.

What these people (and you) are doing is taking a word that has a strongly negative connotation, arguing for an expanded categorization of this word in an attempt to rub off that connotation on something else. But all this succeeds in doing is devaluing said word.

Fascism has a negative connotation because its consequence was the death of 60-100 million people. That has nothing to do with Bernie supporters wanting to give people free healthcare. The “more government” connection (what even does ‘more government’ mean?) has to be proven more than circumstantial. Likewise, sexism has a negative connotation because of rape, women in the past not having basic rights like the right to vote, etc. But a man letting his balls get some air has nothing to do with that, even if people find it a little rude.

They have algebraically replaced a world phenomenon with a term, much like a mathematician replaces a quantity with the letter ‘X’ on paper. Then they have discursively reasoned using the term, not the phenomenon. You can find the length of a square’s side from the root of the area. We have a square that is 4 cm2. So what is √4? Math tells us that it is ±2. So a square in real life can have a negative length? This is the lunacy that you will accept with analytical reasoning if you do not understand its premises.

So instead of lazily giving us a definition full of nebulous terms, why not prove to me that any similarities between modern Russia and the Fascist countries are more than circumstantial? What is the unity behind these particular examples? All states are militaristic. All states suppress real opposition. Authoritarianism is no realer than the boogeyman. Russia does not have a “strong regimentation of society” so you’re just flat out wrong there.


I did that when I was staying over at a friends house in middle school once, and instead of the parents getting mad at me, they got mad at my friend. “why can’t you be more like them?”


It’s more likely some feature of the way the data is collected. You can see there is a clear trend without the spike. If it was about Jan 6, that would mean 900,000 comments about Jan 6. I think it’s just a mistake.


Many reasons. Sometimes the water table is too high. Sometimes the ground isn’t actually colder because it is a material that retains a lot of heat. Digging is expensive. And of course, most people don’t want to live underground.


New technology is cool. But since it requires the bacteria to be fed with plant matter, this will compete with agriculture for food production if produced in scale.

Seems like a piece the Ukrainian president would want to play. It would look pretty funny.


Yes until 8th grade. Self defense isn’t really the problem. I could defend myself physically just fine. That doesn’t resolve the social dynamics of bullying. Although I guess it doesn’t hurt to know.


If there are 4-5 different types of plug that people use, let’s say I need to charge my phone and want to borrow a charger from someone. I have to carry around 4-5 different adapters for whatever a willing person to help me might have. I don’t even have a single adapter because one is too much to carry around at all times. Thank God USB and power outlets are standard, otherwise I would need to have like 15 adapters at all times.


You can easily install a different OS on your computer. You can’t just start using a different type of charger for a device. Apples and oranges.


No, it’s just an adjective for gender. But if instead of saying something like “my best friend is a woman” you said “my best friend is a female” it sounds like you are an alien talking about some kind of specimen.



I’ve heard this strategy breaks fiduciary responsibility. So if they do this, there’s a possibility twitter gets sued by some of their shareholders.


He doesn’t have majority ownership. Vanguard capital and Saudi Arabia are buying more shares to hold on to a majority, and the board of twitter is doing a poison pill to devalue his shares. It’s anyone’s guess who wins.
