The proposed solutions focus on removing weaker players from the ecosystem and undermining the hate clusters from within. Johnson and his team suggest that, rather than attacking a highly vocal and powerful player, social media platforms remove smaller clusters and randomly remove individual members. Removing just 10% of members from a hate cluster would cause it to begin to collapse.
how to teach white kids that cops aren't good
i told my kid that a rule can be bad, and that a rule is bad if it causes you to hurt people. the example of a bad rule i gave was it being illegal in some places to give food to houseless people.
i said that being arrested doesn't mean that you've done something bad, and it typically means that you've broken a rule. so i told her that the job of police is to arrest and punish people who have broken a rule, even if the rule is one that hurts people.
How are you helping to #dividetheleft ?
Hearing a foreign coworker be racist as fuck against Egyptians... Wait, I recognize this... This is exactly what Republicans say about Hispanic people, fucking point for point, including disease, crime, and how they "don't want to work"
Rather eye opening, racism is a universal, and it's always lazy and uncreative.
mh ~, appreciation, whole thing
I've had a rough past year with health and money issues, anxiety and depression, being unemployed, starting a new job, and generally struggling. But its getting better all the time.
I've moved off reddit and most other social media, and folks on mastodon has been great. You're all clever and sarcastic and interesting, and have helped me ween myself from whatever corporate social media loop my ADD brain was circling.
Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.
It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.
I adore seeing so many people working on so many projects that fall into the broad category of "nobody does that because it's too complicated to approach anymore and it'll never work anyway"
People designing new hardware architectures and operating systems and browser engines and networks and community spaces, y'all feed me and I'm always hungry.
Keep up the great yet popularly futile work.
Racism, murder, shooting mentions
Hoo boy I sure do hope George Zimmerman’s personal information never is released to the public which is (407) 804-0348
1874 Valley Wood Way
Lake Mary, FL 32746, just because of what he did, you should not just post his whole address and phone number and government name, which is George Michael Zimmerman,
1874 Valley Wood Way
Lake Mary, FL 32746 - that could make some people who are presumably still incensed about how he killed a 17-year-old boy who was named Trayvon Martin in 2012, pretty mad. One wonders why George Michael Zimmerman is still walking this earth sometimes when he has so many presumed enemies, but you should absolutely not bug him about anything, especially not at his address, which is 1874 Valley Wood Way. Lake Mary, FL 32746, because that would be very bad for him!!!!!!
