Sargon covers the harassment of himself, Ben Shapiro by Zoey Tur, Sessler's support of doxing, srhbutts harassing and doxing, Ralph being doxed, Quinn doxing, Randi Harper, Ian miles Chong being harassed, Totalbiscuit being harassed, bomb threats on gamergate meetups, lizzyf620 being doxes and threatened.

When you list it all out, you get a much better idea of just how hypocritical and just how morally bankrupt the Social Justice community really is, despite everything that they say.

The extended use of Totalbiscuits story of receiving death threats and suggestions that his cancer kills him whilst he was hooked up to chemotherapy was especially powerful.

I also felt some degree of sympathy for IMC. I'm happy that Sargon humanised him, and indeed humanised all of the people in the video. It really helped get across the message across.

Gabe Valve Time Newell?

Honestly, I'd be happy with a delay if the end product is as awesome as a Valve product, but thanks to everyone in this thread I can see how the rumours have started.

So, /v/politics, how do we go about reducing the influence of money on politicians? submitted by EllipsisMouseCard to politics

EllipsisMouseCard 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Personally, my approach would be from the other side; voter education.

I would accept that corruption is an slowly encroaching, inevitable aspect of politics, to a greater or lesser extent. But, I would also realise that the vast majority of people think that corruption is bad, and will not vote or endorse a candidate tainted with it.

Voters are very poorly informed on most aspects of politics; ignorant of the law, the way the legal system works, of how their own government works (in the UK for example, large swathes of anti-EU sentiment stems directly from the fact that people have absolutely no idea how the EU functions or what the EU actually is), of the practical effects of laws, etc. etc.

I would set aside time and money for better public education, and insert some education about politics into school curricula.

Now obviously the question is to whom do you entrust the writing of the curriculum, and to whom do you give money to educate the public.

That sentiment of despairing apathy is so common that most people that I know simply ignore politics, carry on with their daily lives, then vote for whoever "feels" about right, with no actual involvement or investment in the process of electing people who run the country.

It's precisely that despair that I feel needs to be addressed, or else we will continue to elect incompetent politicians, and we will run our countries into the ground and we will all suffer the consequences.

Reading history you notice that inevitable cycle: Political system gains popularity and success, then starts to decay, then war, chaos, then new political system rises and replaces the old. I want to break this cycle, and one would think that the contemporary age has sufficient smart people to solve the difficult problems of "how to govern a country effectively"

Honestly? I wish that this is how we actually did politics. Empirical testing of policies to see what effect they actually have. Empirical testing of policies against each other to see which is better and which actually benefits people.
