Is It WRONG If You Don’t Vote? (Trump vs. Hillary) – 8-Bit Philosophy

Is It WRONG If You Don’t Vote? (Trump vs. Hillary) – 8-Bit Philosophy

Our elections seem to be getting scarier and scarier, dear viewer. Democrats warn of a petty racist, ready to press the nuclear launch button with his tiny, tiny hands. Republicans warn of a corrupt tyrant, ready to take away your guns and freedom. With options as scary as these, it seems that, today, more and more people are ready to vote against a candidate they fear rather than for a candidate they support. But is this strategy slowly killing our…

The Redirect: Why facts matter on both sides of abortion debate

The Redirect: Why facts matter on both sides of abortion debate

Let’s talk about the abortion debate. You’re either pro-life, or pro-choice. Or anti life or anti choice. You either hate women or you hate babies. Framed this way, you can’t win, no matter where you stand. Why do we talk about abortion like this? The conversation is polarized, but most Americans aren’t. They stand in the middle, and they’re deeply uncomfortable talking about abortion. And many of the people who are comfortable talking about it are angry or extreme. With…

Do Humans Operate Like Computers? (Kant) – 8-Bit Philosophy

Do Humans Operate Like Computers? (Kant) – 8-Bit Philosophy

Does a human being operate differently than a computer? If I am aware of how a computer is programmed, I can predict how it will respond to input, and therefore I can control it. What if science could quantify our brains and reduce them to incredibly complex algorithms? Could human behavior then also be predicted? And, if so, are we responsible for our actions? Immanuel Kant addressed this problem of determinism in his book, “The Critique of Practical Reason,” which…

Democracy is Good, Actually | Very Important Docs²⁵

– Democracy is great, I mean it would be if only people were smart. but the problem is that people are just so stupid. If you try and tell people the facts they just fart right in your face. They use non-specific words like “stuff” and “things” and they wear pajamas to Walmart. Morons! Allow me to hallucinate the perfunctory manner in which the quintessential every day people perform their general malaise. Big words! The average person gets up every…

REAL HISTORY: Mussolini was just a Marxist with a twist

REAL HISTORY: Mussolini was just a Marxist with a twist

D’Souza: Ultimately, Mussolini decided that what Marx got wrong is that, for Marx, the sole dividing line was class.

Mussolini saw that in World War I, the German socialists fought for Germany, and the French socialists fought for France. And so, Mussolini said there’s only one kind of socialism that will work in the future, it is national socialism….
