    I would think that would make it more interesting, provided you were interested in politics.

    Example: there's an open wheel thread here. I don't post because I just don't know or care about racing. I wouldn't call it boring -- I'd just call it irrelevant to me, and me to it. I'd have nothing to add and I am not looking for the information.

    OTOH, if somebody started a thread about, I dunno, 8th century metaphysics, I'd be captivated. I have literally no idea about 8th century metaphysics except I suppose it's about 400 years before Duns Scotus, but I'd be all over it like a cop on an innocent unarmed black man.

    I think as a rule if people have strong feelings about something they want to learn more about it, or at least argue about why they're right and everybody else can eat a bag of d-cks. That seems like fundamental psychology to me: what one holds close one wants to share, or at least wield.

    But this may just be because I am of a certain personality type (obnoxious and disliked) and many people want those things they hold most dearly to be locked away without criticism or comment. I understand that kind of privacy when it comes to the sublime. I would never discuss important family stuff here. But ideas, for me, are an orgy and a combat.

      • If you're "conservative" on this site, but not fully confident in engaging in a discussion about why you believe certain things, it can be pretty difficult. You're constantly feeling like you need to defend your position, while generally oblivious to the reasons you're a racist/ sexist.

        You eventually lose interest in visiting threads that are a reminder of how your position doesn't vibe with the majority here.

        Some people have a variety of reasons for sticking around to defend their positions (Hovey), some disappear at convenient times where they don't want to defend their positions (Sicatoka) and some disappear completely for a while when they feel like it's not worth it (myself).

            See, now a lot of people would say that's one of the truly great decisions I've made.
            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            • Get back to cops:

              MINNEAPOLIS — The Minneapolis City Council voted 12-0 Friday to pass an ordinance that pushes forward a measure to delete the term “police department” from the city charter in favor of a “department of community safety and violence prevention.”

              Five city council members, including president Lisa Bender, have signed their names as authors. The new public safety department would focus on a “holistic, public-health oriented approach,” although it would still allow for a “law enforcement services” division that would include licensed peace officers.

              The head of the Community Safety and Violence Prevention would need “non-law enforcement experience in community safety services,” who would then appoint a separate director of the law enforcement services division.

              Friday's vote suspends normal rules to change the Minneapolis city charter, putting the measure on a fast track to the council's charter committee in hopes of getting it on the November ballot. If ultimately approved under the charter commission process and then by city residents, it would replace the existing Minneapolis Police Department with a public safety system accountable to both the mayor and the city council.

              • This is how every city should operate. Take the evictions, homeless, and similar off the plates of officers. Allow them to handle violent offenders, but with a force that focuses on deescalation over pulling their guns.

                We all agree there are going to be situations where an officer needs to use their weapon. But we should all agree that many situations escalate because of a uniformed officer on presence.

                I'm a white male in Germany and i get super nervous if the police approach, even knowing I've done nothing wrong. I've also had pet control approach about my dog and much less stressfu .

                      This is true. They notified me saying they need another immature hick who was primarily interested in sports and partying.

                            Seriously you put cops in full riot gear for a violin vigil...

                            read the whole thread this crap is ridiculous.

                              This. So much this. There are plenty of things that police departments have been saddled with that shouldn't be in their hands.



                              Side note, I actually appreciate your posts cF. We may disagree politically, but I've always respected your posts. I'm glad when you do contribute, because at least you don't conveniently duck out like Sic does when things (that he's specifically said wouldn't go sideways) go sideways.

                                It's incredible. It's storm troopers murdering a child and then goose stepping through a peaceful violin protest and breaking it up. It's like a parody of a police state.

                                Abolish the cops.

                                Abolish the right.
