This is why reddit is dying. Fuck those mods. submitted by Finn to MeanwhileOnReddit

Eiji 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

It's really shocking how far this kind of corruption can reach in what is supposed to be a professional website. The amount of apathy that the admins and developers are showing to this kind of thing will be the death of reddit, just like with what happened to digg.

strain on services

But that's primarily caused by budget cuts. Let's be honest, the NHS could very well scale with the population, but the conservatives are all about saving money for short term gain, often ignoring long term consequences. The NHS is already one of the most cost effective health services in the world, it shouldn't be a problem to expand outwards to handle the strain.

People moving to the UK look for work, so they pay taxes into the system. Even people working here illegally act as a net profit a lot of the time due to how that shady business works. In that case, the government isn't losing out on any money. They just don't want to reinvest it into the NHS because it goes against their ideology of austerity/privatization.

It's a similar story with house prices too, there's plenty of demand for new houses, (which is why there's a crisis,) but they don't want to built any. We can't blame people moving here, prospective home buyers, for a shortage of houses to buy. Ultimately it's the responsibility of the building sector and the government to incentivize the construction of new homes.

It points to a purposeful effort by the government and these construction companies to artificially inflate the house prices in the UK so they can make a quick buck off our backs. Look at London, one day that bubble is going to pop, and we'll be the ones feeling the consequences.

Look at it like this, immigration adds to our population, they work, they vote, they spend money like any other citizen. So imagine if there was no immigration at all, but instead our birth rate was higher to compensate, would these problems still be present? It would be the same, more people living in the UK and causing the same problems.

A nation of people is a self sustaining system, no matter where they come from. As the population grows, so do our public and private sectors, and the public services needed to sustain them. Part of that self sustaining system is the government, who need to strike a balance between the public and private sectors, and to ensure that everybody is doing their bit to keep that system running.

I think the conservatives have failed in this effort, but people are pointing the finger in the wrong direction. They've done nothing to combat rising house prices, nothing to stop wages from falling, nothing to stimulate the economy beyond cuts and have made no moves towards up-scaling the NHS for our growing population.

IMO: The solution to these issues isn't tighter immigration control, it's better governance.

Well the original post wasn't about culture, so I didn't mention it.

I think people don't even care that much about culture here in the UK, especially when juxtaposed with economic woes and public services. They place a much higher priority on personal prosperity rather than a collective desire to protect a vague idea of culture in it's most basic form. (And let's be honest, what would you, personally, consider British culture to be?)

It isn't happening just here in the west. It's happening all over the world, as traditional ideas and practices fall into the background or the history books. They might be impractical or harmful, or devoid of purpose; and the younger generation sees no need to hold onto the past. Some of these changes are for better and worse, but we all have to deal with them.

In an increasingly interconnected world, the only survival for the average person is economic. They don't care about Muhammad down the road, who doesn't care much for fish and chips; and on an extreme scale those who would be considered anti-British culture are criminals or terrorists, so they don't feel the need to protest about it much.

People read about an "outrageous" piece of overblown news about something like civil sharia courts, before moving on with their day like nothing happened because it doesn't really effect them. Then it turns out to be nothing important anyway (both parties must consent, only for civil cases like divorce) so why would they still care now when the Daily Mail declares that the sky is falling?

It's the reality of time passing by. Things change whether we want them to or not, the only constant is the struggle to feed, house and clothe yourself.

Kamen Rider Drive - 21 / Shuriken Sentai Ninninger - 03 - Discussion and Releases submitted by Eiji to Tokusatsu

Yeah it was surprisingly anti-climatic all things considered. I hope type tridoron has a better debut.

But to be fair I've not be enjoying drive that much in general, it's definitely passed into filler territory recently.

I personally don't think Gaim is anything special in regards to being dark, Kamen Rider has a history of extremely dark moments especially in the early Heisei series like Kuuga and Agito, (both of which are fantastic.) If you like the tone I'd suggest watching those two; and Ryuki which is extremely...

I didn't mean avoid Gaim first, Gaim is fantastic. A lot of people say that it's a bad place to start and that it sets a different expectation than the other series because it's very heavily focused on the narrative rather than fighting the monster of the week.

By all means watch it, if...
