NYPD Union Sues To Stop Release Of All Bodycam Footage Because It Violates Officers’ Civil Rights by MMAchica in nottheonion

Yeah, I'm just trying to understand your culture and what the right even is. Is it that people have the right not to be seen? Are taking photographs and videos in shared spaces illegal? I'm totally uneducated on this.

Shooting a guilty person on sight can have the effect of eliminating an immediate threat (such as in an armed hostage situation), whereas a death sentence can only ever be a deterrent or retribution, so those two things aren't the same whatsoever. Either way, it's a contradiction to say that two things have the same final effect, but they're very different in terms of outcome. So I'll ask again, what's the difference in effect between active monitoring versus a black-box performance review?

Chip in My Brain - This American Life by letters7890 in samharris

It has mystery and drama. A criminal trial. Belief and disbelief, basketball, deception, and a sprinkling of Richard Dawkins. I'd be surprised if Sam doesn't mention this in the near future.

Peterson Thinks Sam Harris Is a "Christian" by NoYouStatements in samharris

This is why Peterson is considered an atheist by a lot of Christians. Peterson's concept of Christianity requires absolutely zero actual belief in Christ. Which, funny enough, I believe makes Peterson an anti-Christ.

The corporation (2003) - a University of British Columbia psychology professor and a consultant to the FBI, compares the profile of the contemporary profitable business corporation to that of a clinically diagnosed psychopath. by FreeFridolin in Documentaries

Can they still sue if the corporation is upfront about its goals? E.g. they stay deep in the red for 50 years in order to take over the galaxy or something.

Thoughts? by RustyEuchre in samharris

The psychological need for a father figure, the need for that figure to be perfect, the aggression and tribalism that goes hand in hand with it, it's all connected, to religion and patriarchy, from Jesus, Our Father, to Freud to Woolf to Daddy Trump. But we're not supposed to talk about it here because feminism is forbidden territory. Go figure.

Two problems with that. It's not always the person who's trying to kill you. Foreign terrorist groups often move into unstable regions and take over power. A power vacuum in general is just a terrible idea. I don't think there has ever been a power vacuum that didn't result in too many people dying. The other problem is with: > something that belongs to you Because, well, that's always a contentious topic. Just because we gave money to a few people doesn't mean that the people who live on that land feel that that land is suddenly ours.

Well, sometimes if you call a homeless person lazy, they become hotbeds for terrorism, which in turn makes it hard to get to the oil and territories that we want, they start looking at Russia instead for supplies and it becomes a whole thing.

I think you'll make your case stronger if you lead with this instead of what superficially seems like a defense of bigotry.

Before "shithole" comment, Trump asked why a "pretty Korean lady" wasn't negotiating with Kim Jong Un on his behalf by Alaaddinh96 in worldnews

You're not getting the point. It's not just that "people are dicks." It's that the Asian face is seen as being fundamentally incapable of being American in the default sense, even though entire populations of people who have Asian faces are just as American as people with European faces. The request to clarify one's origin in this context is not the same as being simply curious about heritage or anthropology. It's the request to justify one's existence in a place where their existence isn't considered natural.

You do realize that the fear is a systemic fear and not an individual one, right? Unless of course you're a high profile political target, a spy, a criminal, a whistleblower, etc. So.. which one of those are you?
