Me, picking fights with everyone. As usual, I guess. Haha, well.
@douginamug total skepticism is impossible. Hume writes "No one can persevere in it even for a few hours."
Such philosophical reasoning as Hume's cannot destroy our instinctual beliefs in an external world, that fire burns, that the sun will rise tomorrow. Through species instinct we have animal faith in the world of the senses, & thus we are able to function in the world. Animal faith, not philosophy, guides our lives.
We at Mutual Interest do this. We believe anti-capitalist medias should be organised as coops. We are owned by readers & writers and funds are distributed using participatory budgeting where members vote for their favourite articles.
The capitalist corporate structure pushes lot of the left media to produce clickbait that damages the left. Many publish outrageous and obnoxious articles to get people to "hate" share and click them.
German language, hierarchy, patriarchy
In German, you refer to adult ('married') men as 'Herr' and women as 'Frau'—which currently translates to 'Mr and Mrs'.
But 'Herr' also translates to 'master/lord', with 'herrschen' meaning 'to master/dominate/lord over' and 'herrschaft' meaning 'control, dominion, mastery'. There is the feminine 'Herrin' for 'Lady' (Herr/Herrin ~= Lord/Lady)
And 'Frau' also means women.
'Herr und Frau' -> 'Lord and woman' 🤷
I've heard of Participatory Democracy a bunch of times, but I only recently came across Prefigurative Politics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prefigurative_politics
This is where (activist) groups/orgs attempt to mirror their aims in their practices, i.e. groups that ultimately want non-authoritarian society do so in a non-authoritarian way (contrast to 'vanguardism')
"This is what democracy looks like", "Can't destroy the master's house with the master's tools", etc.
These Dutch “bicycle buses” are transporting 50+ kids getting the kind of exercise that leads to better learning, who DON’T need to be driven & dropped off by parents adding lots of local car traffic. Nijmegen, NL video via @MartijnLi@twitter.com HT @email@example.com
Stoicism describes a set of virtues or behaviors we should follow in order to achieve eudaimonia, translated as happiness or more specifically, human flourishing. There are 3 main cardinal virtues:
Live at peace with your own nature as rational beings without inner conflict, & with self-love.
Living at peace with other people, including those you may despise, because we are all made up of the same space dust.
Living at peace with external events, & welcome fate without complaint.
