Its easy to turn a blind eye until it happens to you.

Twitter Bans and "Dehumanisation": Is the NPC Meme TOO Accurate? submitted by fluxusp to technology

meowmix56 0 points 29 points (+29|-0) ago

I don't think it is a matter of accuracy at all. There have been accurate memes before that have gone largely ignored. The reason they are quick to move against this meme is that it is dangerous to them. In a humorous and compelling way it draws attention to and negates the tactics of manipulation and emotional cues they used to herd people. Just as importantly it is accessible and funny to normal people, the ones who don't pay much attention to politics. I hope people make the most of these and share them while it lasts. They are great.

Does anyone else think Netflix implemented the new rating system as a result of, or at least partly because of the Amy Schumer thing? submitted by Tipman79 to whatever

meowmix56 1 points 28 points (+29|-1) ago

Yes. They had been testing the system for a few people off and on for months beforehand. To my knowledge it was not well received. Rather than a normal rollout or waiting until it was ready they forced it through silently less than week after the negative schumer press. It seems very likely. I only watched the special after reading an article about the low rating, ostensibly blamed on alt-right trolls, and I had to struggle to make it through. Not only were the jokes derivative and unpleasant but the audience wasn't even laughing. The audience of people who paid money to watch amy schumer did not seem happy to be there.

I'd rather they made a deal to use imdb ratings or set up their own metacritic style ratings. I can only guess their reluctance is because they want an individuals rating to predict what else they would enjoy watching. However this can be accomplished nearly as easily behind the scenes with statistics on what they watch and for how long and comparing it to people with similar habits.

On the bright side the dave chappelle specials weren't bad.

How about we start calling western civilization "white civilization" and rustle some jimmies? submitted by White_Phillip to whatever

But whites have no civilization. It was entirely culturally appropriated from asia and the middle east.

WikiLeaks is Actively Working to Draw Your Attention Away from Russia submitted by HenryCorp to ConflictOfInterest

Russia is too much of a scapegoat anyways. As long as they keep revealing important truths I don't really care about their agenda.

Youre Fired! University of Tampa Fires Professor For Saying Hurricane Harvey Was Instant Karma For Texas submitted by johnnyarrington to politics

meowmix56 2 points -2 points (+0|-2) ago

Nobody mentioned the first amendment. Free speech does not end at the first amendment. As you correctly point out the first amendment limits the government from action restricting expression. However the concept of free speech goes beyond this as a fundamental social value. Yes a private entity has a right to fire their employees over statements, but they can and should be criticized for it. We can express our discontent, stop doing business with them, and try to persuade others to do the same. As recent events illustrate censorship is fully possible at the hands of private industry. I get the impression you do not agree with what you said and were merely throwing the left's words back in their face but I try to make this argument at every opportunity. Hopefully someone reads it and is influenced.

  • Though I do not believe the right of an employer to fire employees at will stems from the first amendment
