Came home from work today and found my 14 year old daughter drunk on my booze. What should I do? submitted by twy123 to AskVoat

I don't believe arbitrary punishment really work for people, so I don't think that's something you should decide before talking to her about it. I don't believe society emphasizes that in order for kids to grow up with dignity they need to be respected as at least trying to do the right thing. I really think most are. Why would anyone try to be a bad kid? A better approach is first trying to understand why she did it. Was she just curious? Was it peer pressure? What compelled her to get so drunk? Was she just testing limits?

Try to make her understand the "why" in what she did was wrong. If she doesn't understand that, then your punishment is utterly meaningless, and likely will have an opposite effect.

I personally think there are far worse places she could be drunk, than off your alcohol at home ...

In your opinion, what is the greatest weakness of capitalism? submitted by profanion to askgoat

Tragedy of the commons. Capitalism doesn't have a feedback mechanism to provide long term stability, really. It just uses until it can't use, and then things collapse.

Having data and using data are too utterly different things. Using data is significantly harder. I seriously doubt they do much more than try to optimize their products for users because a) it's really expensive to do things with that much data, and b) what else would they do with it? If they sold it, they risk a rediculously huge reputation hit. They can't really even give it to the NSA, because the NSA already has so much data they can't do their jobs in a meaningful way.

Can we get "no partial credit" somewhere in the official rules? submitted by Swole_is_life to fphdiscussion

I'm curious. Why no fat sympathy? Is it counter productive to the integrity of the subreddit?

Are the core ideas behind this sub are so unstable/unjustifiable you have to ban anything that's remotely opposing? Whenever I see people banning the opposing idea, and creating a little box to think within, I find it a fantastic sign their ideas probably aren't justifiable. Do you not agree?

OR do hate subeditors have a propensity to by overrun by "outsiders"? Is everyone just too fucking retarded to sit down and discuss things properly? Man fuck people. I need to make a HateHumanity subreddit.

Unless you are legit retarded, you can control it

And I disagree completely. Addiction is not controllable, it controls you. It removes the chemical ability that allows you to control yourself. If you don't produce enough of the chemicals to support normal brain function, you are not going to have a brain functional enough to implement "free will". There's a reason sugar is consider 8x more addicting that cocaine ... it fucks with your dopamine pathways. You can't really argue against chemistry here ... if you don't have enough chemicals, then you will not function properly.

That's pretty much what an intervention and rehab are.

Actually rehab does a lot more than just shaming. Or really, they don't shame. They provide an environment where you don't need the drug, and they are very supportive throughout the whole recovery process. They don't use negative reinforcement because negative reinforcement does work. You don't torture people into giving up information. You don't hit children to make them learn. You don't emotionally abuse to making people skinny.

FFS, crack is ILLEGAL, you can't get a lot more "shaming" than saying "if you're caught doing this, we're going to throw your ass in jail."

You do realize the War on Drugs is a complete and utter failure? Man, the worst thing you can do to an addict in shame him, because then he really will have nothing to live for but crack. It literally only makes the situation worse. You know what does work? Understanding and actual treatment. In Portugal they decriminalized drugs completely. Guess what, drugs rate dropped in half. Fucking Half. There's a reason you don't use negative force if you actually want to accomplish anything, because it doesn't work

Japan is a living experiment proving that fat shaming on a large scale WORKS.

Japan never had an obesity problem to begin with, so the analogy is fairly poor. They eat very different than we do. And, they have other problems with there society you probably don't want. Something like 50% of the women are completely uninterested in sexual relations. It's so bad the government funds hookup events so people can get together. That's the kind of society that high social pressure causes ...

We know what the social problem is, obesity normalization.

No. You really don't. You guys are just mindless hating around in a futile, and completely childlike, attempt at fixing the problem. Obesity normalization is an effect of the obesity epidemic, not a cause. You can't treat obesity by treating a symptom ... you have to treat the root cause.

But that just means you have to work extra hard, not give up.

Again, you're misconstruing cause and effect. Giving up is part of the problem. People need chemicals that allow them to not give up. You tried say, advocating for 5-HTP (the precursor for serotonin), which is an amazing appetite suppressant, then maybe you'd actually get somewhere. But, you need to realize feelings are effects, and not causes ...

Ironically, I read the sub because it actually helps me. But that's only because, for once, I actually can lose weight in a conscious manner. That only happened once I started to take 5-HTP.

And, I do agree the HAES movement is completely fucking stupid to the point of being dangerous. But, I think people need to be treated with chemicals that allow them to control their actions, not just futilely shamed into doing so.

@HomerSimpson because you can respond to! Or not. Whatever.
