"Raices," or "Roots," is a new public exhibit by Mexican artist Rivelino, designed to provoke reflection about the nation's past.
I honestly just looked for the first article in English that described the installation. 8 million of pesos wasted on "roots" made of PVC that don't even look like roots nor do they inspire me to think about my country's history. It might be because I don't know enough about it, but so far, I hate conceptual art.

Article includes pictures of the installation.

It is a mistake to think that early in a fascist shift you see the profile of barbed wire against the sky. In the early days, things look normal on the surface; peasants were celebrating harvest festivals in Calabria in 1922; people were shopping and going to the movies in Berlin in 1931. Early on, as WH Auden put it, the horror is always elsewhere - while someone is being tortured, children are skating, ships are sailing: "dogs go on with their doggy life ... How everything turns away/ Quite leisurely from the disaster."
Article drawing parallels between the rise of dictatorial societies and the changes in US law in the past decade.

With the US's changing political climate and the pressure the US has been putting on other countries (excessive requests for extradition, pressure to pass certain kinds of laws and to take other measures), I'm fearing for the future of the Western world.

So men are required to take the initiative so women can show they won't cheat on men? How the hell does that still work in a society where every woman is a slut sexually liberated? Besides, I'm not sure if I can accept the whole 'she flirts everyone so she won't cheat on men' thing.

This comment is kind of interesting:
>RE: #1
>Submitted by Martian Bachelor on May 2, 2011 - 7:54am.
>There's a simple explanation for this... >Consider the watch paradox: Let's say you spend $500 on a really nice watch. It's a super-discount closeout, so no returns are possible.
>A month later (Case A) something comes up, you're in a jam and short of cash, so you decide to try and liquidate the watch. In many parts of the world people have stored value in jewelry they can hold rather than trust it to banks, but you know the cash-for-jewelry places will only give you $100, which isn't enough. So you decide to try and take your chances on the street corner, hassling people walking by trying to sell it. Obviously you have to take a steep discount when finally someone stops and shows some interest. You take $200.
>The alternative reality version (Case B) is the opposite situation. You're passing thru that same street corner NOT needing to sell anything, when someone spots you wearing the watch and starts wanting to try and buy it off you after you tell him they were likely not still available any more. He's really taken by the watch, so he starts bidding you up above where the supposed retail price was (which you knew had to be inflated to begin with). It is a nice watch, but you decide $1250 would be nicer, so you sell the watch.
>The moral? The person who initiates the transaction is in the inferior position.
>That's what women require of men by employing a passive strategy. They never really wanted "equality", they thought they were superior to begin with and are only interested in men who will validate this. (More and more "proof" is manufactured for them everyday.) It's essentially a power play, with woman only willing to take the one-up side of the script.
>Sex roles and power plays are two of "the three most destructive forces militating against the achievement of satisfactory loving relationships between men and women" (Claude Steiner) because the two people agree from the start they are unequal. Obviously there's little room in such a framework for the man who considers himself an equal of, or superior to, a given woman. Thus women get the inferior knuckle-dragging subservient they want.
>This used to work way back when courting meant trying to appeal to the woman's father (and other kin), but is now almost entirely dysfunctional.
>One more observation: women often engage in what's called "initiative transfer", where they will make only the first move -- such as saying "Hi" -- and then expect everything else to proceed according to the script as if the man had been the initiator. Such attempted manipulation, which men almost always get at some level, suggests the state of "girl game" is still really lame.

I'm not trying to be a misogynist here, but I do have to agree that modern-day feminism is no longer looking for equality, but rather getting more rights without taking their responsibilities or letting males have similar equal rights. It just doesn't make any sense that prison rape is comedy gold while even trying to joke about "normal" rape makes you evil.

Never use a long word where a short one will do.
If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.

Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.

The progression of the suicidal mind in 6 easy steps! I thought this paragraph was especially interesting:
Another central aspect of the suicidal person’s cognitive deconstruction, says Baumeister, is a dramatic increase in concrete thought. Like the intrusively high self-awareness discussed earlier, this concreteness is often conveyed in suicide notes. Several review articles have noted the relative paucity of “thinking words” in suicide notes, which are abstract, meaningful, high-level terms. Instead, they more often include banal and specific instructions, such as, “Don’t forget to feed the cat,” or “Remember to take care of the electric bill.” Real suicide notes are usually suspiciously void of contemplative or metaphysical thoughts, whereas fake suicide notes, written by study participants, tend to include more abstract or high-level terms (“Someday you’ll understand how much I loved you” or “Always be happy”).

What romantic implications does betraying your best friend have? Are you hypersexual? If I had a "best" friend and he fucked my girlfriend, I'd kick her out and be glad it was him instead of someone else down the line. You don't care who your best friend is fucking, right? The issue at hand is not that your best friend is fucking someone, it's that your girlfriend is fucking someone. So he fucked your girlfriend, he showed you she was easy, great now you can move on instead of marrying her and having her cheat on you with Fred in the office 15 years down the line after you're exponentially more invested in her. He's not a "whore" he's just not considerate, and it may not seem intuitive but anyone that really understands the bros before hos ethos would shrug it off. You don't marry your best friend, you marry your girlfriend. It's cool that you think it's worse to be betrayed by a friend, but I'm not sure I'd want to be in a romantic relationship with someone that felt that way.

What do you want me to say? Bad experiences? Mommy issues? I don't hate women, those were just stupid things to say.
>> No.40920  
>if the word "whore" is a judgement of romantic conduct
It's more accurately a judgment of sexual conduct. So both the friend and girlfriend can be, and are, whores.

I guess I don't understand "bros before hos" (probably because I'm not a bro-type) because I thought betraying your friend to get your dick wet was the opposite of what that's about.

Regardless the original story is obviously fictional and it's not worth arguing about, especially since nothing anyone here says is going to get you to stop hating women. You need some personal growth or therapy before that will happen.

The issue at hand is not that your best friend is fucking someone, it's that your girlfriend is fucking someone.

The problem here is that your best friend fucked YOUR girlfriend. You don't want anyone else to fuck your girlfriend, and for your best friend to do exactly that would be betrayal.

It takes two people to have sex. It's not just the woman who thinks 'hey, maybe I should cheat on him' and tries their hardest to find a man to do it with; it's a more gradual process where both participants know they're in the wrong and won't advance by themselves, but bit by bit they encourage each other to continue with it until they're actually fucking.

"He showed you she was easy" is a bullshit excuse. I'm not breaking into your home to prove to you that your home was badly secured. Sure, shit can always happen, and I'm convinced that for every person there's some set of circumstances that would cause them to cheat on their lover, but you'll have to hope those circumstances never happen in the same way you hope your home will never be broken into (and yes, there is a high likelihood of it happening at some point down the line). Showing you she'll cheat on you by causing her to cheat on you makes no sense, as at that point, she will have cheated on you.

Love issues can cause serious emotional suffering to someone, and as a friend you would not cause that to happen to your best friend. If you do, you're not a friend, you're a selfish prick.
>> No.40924  
And hopefully one day you will be secure enough in yourself to not believe that females are somehow above blame. If you think that story is obviously fictional I can only assume that I have a lot more experience with people than you. Being so eager to attack me that you failed to realize that I was making a distinction between someone doing something hurtful (the friend) and someone being a whore (the girlfriend) and not assigning blame away from either party just makes you look desperate to appeal to women.

People actually get paid to try to break into others' property to test security all the time. It's called white hat hacking. Of course, that just happens in the business world because businesses can generally be relied on to be logical whereas most people have their heads stuck up their asses and are too busy trying to defend themselves from emotion to act in their own self interest. Real friends don't pull punches. If you've never had to forgive a friend and they've never had to forgive you, it's not a real friendship.
>> No.40925  
This isn't white hat hacking. White hat hacking is being asked to break someone's lock, breaking that person's lock and then calling that person saying you've managed to break the lock. White hat hacking is not breaking the lock without permission in the middle of the night, breaking into the house and stealing all of the valuables there (not even if you know the owner).

It'd be a different story if he'd just flirted a bit with the girl and stopped and told the friend when she was pushing him towards sex. But purposely going all the way just for your own satisfaction is just ruining a relationship, and you shouldn't do that to anyone, especially not a friend.

To say 'real friends don't pull punches' is retarded. When something bad happens to a friend, you do pull your punches, because being too blunt will hurt people's feelings even if they're your best friend. Real friends pull less punches, but they're still careful about things you're sensitive about.

Not that this has anything to do with 'pulling your punches' or just a serious disagreement between friends. This is knowingly and willingly causing harm to your friend for no reason other than your own benefit. There are times when you have to forgive a friend for doing things that ended up harming you, but if you have to forgive a friend for purposely causing you suffering because his penis is more important than his friend, you have to question your friendship.
>> No.40927  
You know why white hat hackers work with permission? Because companies realize that the people showing you your vulnerabilities is a good thing. It's not the other way around, that knowing your vulnerabilities is a good thing only when the person that showed you them had permission. That sounds pretty stupid, doesn't it? If you care about monogamy and you're with a girl that would be willing to fuck someone else, the best thing that could happen to you is for that relationship to end as certainly and swiftly as possible, period, full stop. There are plenty of people that aren't your friends that don't care about getting off in your significant other and not telling you about it. You can think whatever you want about what friendship should and shouldn't be, but the guy that got cheated on is better off than he was and can now go on to find friends better suited to his sensitive feelings and a girlfriend that won't fuck around.

Are you intentionally being ironic or are you just projecting on me? I'm not the one arguing that remaining in a relationship with a partner that's willing to fuck around is desirable. Or was it the statement about infidelity not being "stealing" that made you uncomfortable? You don't and never will own anyone, no matter what pledges you make or feelings you share their body and actions are always completely their own. In turn, how you react and whether or not you let their decisions affect you is entirely your responsibility and not theirs. It's really funny that you, or two other people holding up your side of the conversation, were preaching at me for being a misogynist when you so obviously objectify women.

I guess he's finally lost it. Glad I got my book before this happened.

Some extra context: Campbell has been removing comics from his site, meaning some of his work can only be read from the actual books. I'm kinda bummed that not all of the stuff from the site is in the books, though, so some stuff is probably lost forever, or at least only on some people's HDDs.

It basically contains the story-less second half of pictures for sad children (see image for example). It also contains a lot of small "part 3" comics/images like
generally printed pretty small, lots of wasted white space (the pfsc comics are printed at proper size, on the other hand). There's a couple color "part 3" comics and some other artsy stuff.

I don't label people crazy because I disagree with them. I label people crazy when they violate a long list of social norms, then proceed to betray people's trust and rub that in people's faces for a reason they derived from a situation that many people who remain sane are also in.

Just because I disagree with capitalism doesn't mean I can just accept payment from you for goods and then run with the money, let alone rub it in your face that I took your money without giving you anything. And even that is more reasonable situation than this.

This was a Kickstarter for a physical compilation of a bunch of comics posted online. Owning the book is not a requirement for reading the comics, and aside from a single illustration no new comics are included in the book. The book is a nice collectible, but the real reason most people buy it is to support the author. The book was supposed to be delivered in July 2012. It took a very long time for stuff to happen, but at some point in 2013 he announced that he spent the money entrusted to him on issues in his private life and is therefore unable to complete the project with his current funds. After support from people, he started selling things like original versions of comics for high prices to fund the project, and people bought it out of goodwill. He also set up a system which allowed people to pay for other peoples' shipping costs, and again, people paid out of goodwill. Now, after so much money was given to support him and his project, he burns the remaining books he has and shows a video of it to the people who were supposed to receive it, telling them he would not send them anymore.

There is no such thing as a person who acts for no reason. People always have a reason for acting. People are labeled crazy when their reasons for acting are so disconnected from society's norms and communication is so impossible that it's of little use to even try to communicate with them anymore. John Campbell is clearly crazy at this point. The only other possibility here is that he's doing this out of pure malice, a real con artist purposely getting as much money out of people as he can and then running with it. Considering who he used to be, I find the malice option to be rather unlikely, so I can only conclude that he's gone crazy.

Hitler wrote that book to explain his views and how he saw the world.
As of 1998, due to 6+ of the mass graves being dug up and proven to be fake, the total number of jews allegedly killed by all of germany combined estimated to be not more than 1.5 million. That's a maximum upper bound. And no 's' at the end, no plural.

On the other hand, I had always been taught in school that Nazi Germany took unusually thorough documentation of its atrocities, so it isn't odd that deniers will point to any lack of documentation as "proof."

your analogy is terrible.
When I say autopsy reports, I'm talking Allied doctors examining the corpses found and identifying the cause of death, Allied doctors giving medical attention to the jews liberated from the camps.

To fit your analogy to the situation,
This would be the ambulance arring at the scene of the crime, walking to where mr. john murdered the person, and then:
Officer, where is the corpse of the person that Mr. John murdered?
He was just there a second ago
Officer, you mentioned the victim bleeding heavily, why is there no blood anywhere?
Never mind that, he killed 11 others, they are buried in his backyard!
Officer, we've finished digging up the yard, uprooted the large tree, and the front yard as well. There's nothing here!
Officer, where is the proof of that?

so it's wrong to let the innocent man go? He deserves to be put to death for the crime of somebody accusing him of doing something wrong with no evidence to support it outside of his own testimony?

Most of the holocaust denial seems to rely on a lot of pointing out that some historian or witness is Jewish and therefore has a personal interest in distorting the truth etc. However, I've also seen a few arguments for the absence of genocide at one of the death camps that sounded quite convincing to me, but what the fuck do I know. If you only listen to one side of the argument then you're pretty much begging to be misled. And anyway, considering even just the atrocities of Nazi Germany that aren't object of conspiracy theories, it seems much more plausible that the holocaust happened than that all of our historians are either too inept or don't want to look at legitimate evidence.

There is no evidence that the scene of A. Hitler offing himself with a pistol.
The entire scene, with the allied soldiers breaking into the bunker, heading to the main room, and then allowing Hitler to pull out a gun, give a short speech, followed killing himself, and lastly by the allied soldiers killing everybody else and burning down the solid concrete bunker leaving no evidence is a god damned sham.

Those soldiers recognized him as the Nazi leader, and yet didn't take his corpse with them to prove they got him? The armed soldiers ALLOWED him to both pull out a gun, aim it at the soldiers, and give a speech without turning him into a lead pincushion?

In light of the current situation in Ferguson and laws being passed in certain states stating that phones must come with a built-in 'kill switch' that allows the owner (oh, and the police, but of course they would never abuse that) to completely block any usage of a phone remotely (including, say, the ability to take and upload pictures of police violence), I'd like to point out this quote again.

It is a mistake to think that early in a fascist shift you see the profile of barbed wire against the sky. In the early days, things look normal on the surface; peasants were celebrating harvest festivals in Calabria in 1922; people were shopping and going to the movies in Berlin in 1931. Early on, as WH Auden put it, the horror is always elsewhere - while someone is being tortured, children are skating, ships are sailing: "dogs go on with their doggy life ... How everything turns away/ Quite leisurely from the disaster."

The way the press is treated in Ferguson doesn't bode well for the future of freedom of the press.

People with depression or pipolar, quite often your brain just feels like its swimming in molasses and you have no mental agility. Every thought has to be laboriously teased out. Right? Well now there's evidence for your claims. Turns out you were right.

My thought is, now that we know about it, how do we stop it? I don't mind having depression if I can get back the sharpness and concentration I once had.

By February 1 the food had run out, and the situation in Captain Pollard's boat became critical. The men drew lots to determine who would be sacrificed for the survival of the crew. A young man named Owen Coffin, Captain Pollard's 17-year old cousin, whom he had sworn to protect, drew the black spot. Pollard allegedly offered to protect his cousin, but Coffin is said to have replied: "No, I like my lot as well as any other". Lots were drawn again to determine who would be Coffin's executioner. His young friend, Charles Ramsdell, drew the black spot. Ramsdell shot Coffin, and Coffin's remains were consumed by Pollard, Ramsdell, and Barzillai Ray. On February 11, Ray also died. For the remainder of their journey, Pollard and Ramsdell survived by gnawing on Coffin and Ray's bones. They were rescued when almost within sight of the South American coast by the Nantucket whaleship Dauphin, on February 23, 95 days after Essex sank. Both men by that time were so completely dissociative they did not even notice the Dauphin alongside them and became terrified by seeing their rescuers.

When Melita Jackson died in 2004 she made it crystal clear she didn't want her estranged daughter Heather Ilott to benefit, and so left her estate to animal charities with which she had little connection.

The relationship between mother and daughter soured when, aged 17, Heather eloped with her future husband.

Yesterday she was awarded a third of the estate because her mother hadn't left "reasonable provision" for her in the will.

She'll now be able to buy her housing association property and won't lose her state benefits.

Experts say the ruling means you can still disinherit your children but you'll have to explain why and what connects you to those you do leave money to.

When I drove up he said, "Doctor, here is business enough for you." I first noticed the wound upon the head before I alighted from my carriage, the pulsations of the brain being very distinct. The top of the head appeared somewhat like an inverted funnel, as if some wedge-shaped body had passed from below upward. Mr. Gage, during the time I was examining this wound, was relating the manner in which he was injured to the bystanders. I did not believe Mr. Gage's statement at that time, but thought he was deceived. Mr. Gage persisted in saying that the bar went through his head. Mr. G. got up and vomited; the effort of vomiting pressed out about half a teacupful of the brain, which fell upon the floor.[14]

And though I wouldn't go as far as Hobbes, I don't entirely disagree with that. Democracy is the worst form of government; every X years, the most charismatic people (or the ones with the most media control or money) are put in charge of ruling the entire country, regardless of how capable they actually are. Their main goal during that period of time is not to make the country prosper, but rather to appease the people (and/or sponsors) so they will be re-elected. This results in incapable, inconsistent governmental decisions, while frequently (and increasingly) being no less corrupt than other forms of government.

At this point, the US government for example is practically an aristocracy now. The more a government moves to a few-party system, the greater the corruption becomes (the peoples' only choice is deciding who the big corporations need to give their money to). On the other hand, many-party systems suffer so much more from the short-sightedness and lack of competence (not to mention the entire thing is slow as fuck because of how hard it is to get to an agreement), resulting in more non-malicious dumb governmental decisions.

Other governmental systems share these problems. The rulers in an aristocracy have no reason to care about the prosperity of commoners beyond preventing rebellion. The various kinds of dictatorship share the problems of populism; although they don't have to 'keep election promises', the leader brought to power by the people is always the most charismatic/influential one, not the most capable leader.

Compared to its alternatives, a leader raised and educated to govern a country, and in charge for a very long period of time (meaning the long-term impact of their decisions is relevant for them) would be far more competent. The only problem here is that of corruption; it is quite possible the king/queen does not have the best interests of their people at heart. As such, I believe that in the end the people should have power over the monarch, just not for the individual decisions they make (as that would inevitably devolve into the current democratic systems); some constitutional means to depose the ruler (preferably with as little bloodshed as possible) should the populace overwhelmingly reject them should go a long way, particularly with a constitution outlining lines the monarch cannot cross without risk of being deposed.

Breaking the dark net: why the police share abuse pics to save children
She expresses concern upon learning that the police themselves did share child sexual abuse images. "I don’t necessarily think it’s wrong for them to commit criminal acts during undercover operations. My concern is not about them breaking the law. My concern is whether we get enough information about the balance in what they do. If the site is used to facilitate the actual abuse of children and the police continue to run it, I question their ability to strike a balance", she adds.
Australian feds took control of by far the biggest CP sharing forum on darkweb history, and ran it for longer than its original operators did, even posting CP themselves in doing so.

Some other choice quotes (it's a long article):
>While the young Canadian unsuccessfully tried to find help to control the desires he felt, the American kept them shut inside. He was afraid any doctor, psychologist or counsellor he consulted would have to report him if he admitted being sexually attracted to children.

>According to Task Force Argos, the number of actual people was far smaller, probably in the tens of thousands. Roughly 100 of them were known as “producers”, sexual predators who film children being raped and share the videos in online forums.

>During a so-called “controlled operation” we get permission from a judge to act in ways that normally would have been considered illegal. We are given the right to commit certain criminal actions and we are exempted from prosecution because we are investigating specific crimes, explains Griffiths.

>– It is worrying if the police “outsource” investigations to a country where police have freer rein, at least if it’s done intentionally and systematically. But the legal picture is unclear.

>ON JANUARY 3RD, 2017, Task Force Argos published WarHead’s monthly update. [...] The message was concluded with: «I hope that some of you were able to give a special present to the little ones in your lives, and spend some time with them. It’s a great time of year to snuggle up near a fire, and make some memories.» He ended the update message, as required, with two child abuse images. "Could this message be seen as encouraging sexual abuse?" VG ask. "Well, there’s no ... I mean, you know", says Griffiths. "Things can be read between the lines, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re encouraging anything. We may have talked about sexual abuse in a number of different forums and platforms, but we would never encourage abuse."

>It sounds like the police tell one story about how damaging the images are when others share them, and another story when the police share them. That’s a kind of hypocrisy I really don’t like. But this sheds light on the argument that any and all sharing of such an image is abuse. If the police say they’re only sharing images that have been shared before, it means the police do not think all sharing is harmful, says Hessick.

>"Isn’t there a risk that people downloading such images will develop into abusers?" "Abusers are abusers. People who have a desire to abuse children will abuse children no matter what", Rouse says.

>On 25 October 2016, two weeks after Argos took over the site, an unidentified user created a discussion thread featuring images of an eight-year-old girl being raped. By August of this year, the post had been viewed 770,617 times – all while the police were running the website.

>Canadian police say they have identified and saved “a dozen” children and referred some 100 cases to other countries. Task Force Argos The Argos Task Force itself declined to provide numbers to VG. "The media tends to use such figures as “weapons” against us and our colleagues around the world, and we don’t want that", Griffiths tells VG. Also uncertain is the total number of children identified and rescued. Professor Hessick wonders about the missing numbers. "If they conduct investigation without even checking if the people have been arrested, it’s hard for Argos to argue that such police operations are necessary. I worry the police apparently think they don’t need to justify an operation like this", she says.
>> No.62228  
It should surprise nobody that the same "I am the law" hypocrisy in sting operations for victimless crimes like file-sharing and trying to goad radicals into asking for bomb making advice to hit the counterterrorism quota also gets applied to CP.
"Think of the children" being the ultimate get out of thought free card, nobody will ever call them out on it, but maybe """""""""""""""controlled operation""""""""""""""" bullshit will finally be criminalized after a few more 9/11s and we'll get to see a world with actual rule of law before we die. (Who am I kidding?)
>> No.62232  
That makes no sense. 9/11 caused a terrorism scare that was used to deprive us of various rights and increase the power governments have over citizens. "A few more 9/11s" and we would have zero privacy and could get arrested for so many things that the government could arrest anyone with almost zero effort.
>> No.62233
