No one is supposed to be able to read it. That's the joke. People get upset. Their goats have been gotten by the trollery.

A 'redskin' is the scalped head of a Native American, sold, like a pelt, for cash: 50 pounds for adult male scalps; 25 for adult female scalps; 20 for scalps of boys and girls under age 12. These bloody scalps were known as “redskins” — the most offensive name one could ever call a Native American by EndlessSunflowers in whatever

Low tier effort, newbie. If you want to stick around SaidIt you should get to know the rules and FAQ. This isn't Reddit.

I've mentioned it many times (except the log). I've tried to present the idea of making SaidIt more democratic with peer feedback and judgements rather some arbitrary dictator, but as nicely as I could to M7 so that he can ultimately decide what to embrace or not - but I think he feels any openness or democracy is a threat to him or something. I think more minds are better than one, and I'd rather be censured and censored by the group (or more likely just a part of the group) than one curmudgeon. It would look better on him too, not having to be the big bad meanie.

You're lumping all the First Nations into one "Native American" group. There were MANY cultures here first and not all of them practiced scalping - yet there was an open bounty on all of theirs. 90% of 500 pales in comparison to the continental genocide.

Yes they may have been first with the practice. Yes they are most notably famous for it, not for being the first, or for the numbers, but because of the Hollywood revisionism to make people feel okay about their past and perpetuating crimes against them always taking away more and more. "Cowboys and Indians" is cultural engineering while rewriting history. But actually, American settlers were more notably savage and practiced.

You wanna hear some crazy shit? I'm deep into the "primitive" local art from Seattle to Alaska. The further North the more refined it gets. Understanding the art and craft is directly tied to understanding the culture, so I got drawn into learning about their meticulous work from spoons to masks to totem poles - and how they lived. Their culture was about pride rather than wealth, and though slaves (gained by warring on other tribes) created wealth which earned pride. In demonstrations of disdain for wealth (in order to gain more pride) they would intentionally break their nice things like their prestigious copper shields (more symbolic than functional), because they were above possessions. This extended to their slaves too, though they were never so foolish as to destroy a strong slave. So it was usually a very young or very old slave that would be "sacrificed" for their pride. There were many ways to dispatch them, but the worst unusual method I read was they'd have the slave(s) necks between two logs and dance on the top log killing the slave(s). They'd put the slaves (dead or living) into the deep holes that they'd plant their large totem poles over them. There are 4 types of totem poles, so not all of them would have this. Also, I don't recall if this might have only been an occasional custom of the Haida as there were at least a half dozen more nations just on the coast of B.C. alone. If I knew which book it was I'd cite it, but if you want to start from the heaviest earliest best source I know, then check out the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesup_North_Pacific_Expedition. Among my few rare books, I have an edition of this book that I should give to a museum or something. It's not an easy read so I haven't yet, but I suspect there may be much more like this in there too.

I'll ask proof on everything and everyone. And I never stop at or trust Wikipedia, but it's my first stop for the "official" story after DuckDuckGo.

I stand behind the excellent character I've seen of /u/EndlessSunflowers, even if this post's wording was poor, the central claim seems baseless, and the goal and motivations seem nebulous. IMO this was a poor post with good intentions in a problematic time of more engineered division than ever, possibly resulting in this unexpected feedback blowup over the last 4 hours.

Agreed. The settlers picked it up and made scalp-capitalism out of it.

I'm in favour of changing offensive names, but not by mandate or pressure from engineered political correctness. Sometimes it's just time to update those old clothes.

Actually, NOT most notably by themselves. That angle has be HUUUUUUGELY pushed by Hollywood revisionism. Savagery is not limited to the First Nations, but they sure had some original ways of doing things, including harm. I've come across many stomach turning stories in my 80 or so books on the Pacific NorthWest Coast of which I'm a fan of their art and culture and ferocity, somehow largely remaining more isolated and protected over the last couple centuries.

I also don't think that's what the general meaning of "redskin" means, nor where the various uses of it originated.

The OP is shitty in some respects to be sure - because it's poorly phrased and leaves open room for debate. However, part of it is sadly very true regarding the scalp bounties and pejorative term. Regarding the link between the term and scalps, I can't be bothered to research it. And if that's the only thing you object to, forgoing all the other information, then that's your loss.

Which parts? Bounties on scalps is real. Pejorative terms exist. I can's speak to the a couple of the specifics word choices - for example "A 'redskin' is the scalped head of a Native American" should be "scalp from a head" otherwise it implies they're carrying around bald beheaded heads. I also haven't looked into ties between the term and the scalps.

Which part(s)? Link?

Not bullshit here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalping

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redskin_(disambiguation)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redskin specifically says:

" Some Native American activists in the 21st century, in contradiction of the etymological evidence discussed above, assert that "redskin" refers directly to the bloody, red scalp or other body part collected for bounty.[32][33] While this claim is associated in the media with litigants in the Washington Redskins trademark dispute; Amanda Blackhorse[34] and Suzan Shown Harjo,[35] the NCAI's support indicates that the belief is widespread. Goddard (2005) denies any direct connection to scalping, and says there is a lack of evidence for the claim.[18]:1[36] King (2016) argues that the lack of direct evidence for the assertion does not mean that those making the claim are "wrong to draw an association between a term that empathizes an identity based upon skin color and a history that commodified Native American body parts".[37] "

" The term "red-skin" was, in fact used in conjunction with scalp hunting in the 19th century. In 1863 a Winona, Minnesota, newspaper, the Daily Republican, printed an announcement: "The state reward for dead Indians has been increased to $200 for every red-skin sent to Purgatory. This sum is more than the dead bodies of all the Indians east of the Red River are worth."[38] A news story published by the Atchison Daily Champion in Atchison, Kansas, on October 9, 1885, tells of the settlers' "hunt for redskins, with a view of obtaining their scalps", worth $250.[39] In his early career as the owner of a newspaper in South Dakota, L. Frank Baum wrote an editorial upon the death of Chief Sitting Bull in which he advocates the annihilation of all remaining Redskins in order to secure the safety of white settlers, and because "better that they die than live the miserable wretches that they are."[40] "

Wikipedia is biased and unreliable and can range from shit to great and they only cite a handful of select corporate media pages (including some that are no longer there) but they cherry pick what info they want to present. What's more telling is the political counter-stories found on the talk pages and history of the articles.

IMO there should be a public forum sub for when there's room for doubt and need for clarity (not just spam or asstrolls) to be dealt with by one's peers rather than some overworked arbitrary private anonymous dictator with a secret roadmap and without any expressed strong leadership vision for the future of SaidIt. Not only would this sub be the place to learn about community issues and a centralized place to keep tabs and counterbalance the problems it could be a place to openly develop policy rather than some arbitrary vague rules like Reddit. It would suck if SaidIt became Sreddit-Lite. Further, I'd like to see fucking logged EXAMPLES of the 3 strikes because so far a lot of it has been flimsy grey area bullshit (not counting the obvious short lived violators). It might also be nice to see 3 ban modes: 1 week to step back take time and cool down, 1 month timeout to show that its getting serious, and a 3rd permanent ban. I would bet there'd be dozens of other fantastic simple ideas (wiki logs of examples) that could be presented to streamline the conflict deescalation/resolution process without actually making more rules - and of course could make it much easier for M7 while also giving the trigger happy mods something else to do that could potentially help keep them in check while teaching them and others more about the different SaidIt culture making our own better way. My 2 cents.

Interesting banner and page css.. by deAccount in Illusions

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks, I think.

The banner is a temporary stand in until I collage something together this week. It's currently one of MC Escher's horizontal images.

I have a long list of topical subs I'd like to see exist to post under, whether I make them or not. But magnora7 made up an arbitrary maximum limit so I have to be selective about the sub titles. I had always definitely wanted to make one for Op Art and mind twisters, Pareidolia (faces in things), and other misperceptions - not to mention ways they may be exploited for fun or political motives.

I like custom and thematic banners for a little more personality and if I'm going to bother with that then I might as well add a CSS too.

This "Ergonomix" CSS is 99.9% done but I need a little help from M7D3 to learn how to activate the Ergonomix link below the sidebox and how to utilize the announcements space at the top of the sidebox where it currently says "Decentralize All Things" including adding announcements, links to more details, the wiki, and SaidIt donate options. This CSS was initially designed to tweak a few things on the original default to make it more practical and easier to read - and I just kept going until it became it's own thing that is colour coded for practicality and visibility with a touch of design. I think there are over 30 subs with this CSS now, most with custom banners. Since most people on SaidIt aren't blind, once I finalize this CSS I will revise all the colours for a second version "Ergonomix-Muted" for people who don't need the crazy colours.

I also did the /s/Coronavirus and /s/CorbettCommenters and am working on the all new /s/WikiSpooks which will also eventually be toned down colour-wise (it's easier to see differences for coding when more pronounced) with a much easier to customize pallet that's based on a grade between 2 colours. Once that code is completed I will apply that CSS to /s/GreenParty and /s/PinUps in other colours and see if I can do it all in under 10 minutes, maybe even 5. Also, FYI, speaking of Illusions, the WikiSpooks banner is very slowly animated and I may do something like that here.

If you would like custom banners, CSS, or CSS help lemme know. I need to focus on another couple projects until Sept or Oct and then can help, unless the fruits of my labour on these projects I'll be sharing blows up with success.

You can consider creating interesting topical subs (with wikis) for people to discover as SaidIt grows - and for yourself collect your interests in your own custom "playlists" with personal multisubs. There's MUCH more potential to SaidIt than just the front page.

Thanks for indulging my curiosity.

I curious why you use the term "patriarchy". I prefer other terms like corporatocracy, technocracy, kakistocracy, pedophocracy, etc. Sex and race aren't the problem so far as I'm concerned and they're only used to divide us into tribalist factions when IMO the largest root problem is the class war between the corporatocracy and the rest of humanity, as all other divisions are part of that greater effort to break us all down. Obviously using "patriarchy" distinguishes which "side" you're on, but does it also empower you or something along those lines, or is it a trigger word, or perhaps it's just a generic word that is easy, understood, convenient? I ask partly because there are most certainly abominable political women who are just as bad if not occasionally demonstrably worse than men who are active agents of the "patriarchy". I could list a bunch but then I'd feel compelled to also list a bunch of terrific women who are being sidelined from political power due to the abundant corruption of the rigged systems.

1) I'm in alignment with you. Abuse is not good from anyone regardless of label. I'm a little confused by the last sentence.

I should also clarify by expanding on my statement about "destroying the family unit". They've been deconstructing our power via social engineering us all in more ways than just the sex issue. There were once strong ethnic neighbourhoods - Polish, Irish, Greek, Catholic, etc etc etc (all with their pros and cons and historical baggage) but they engineered the destruction of those communities by intentionally moving in "undesireables" (whatever that may mean to those communities and individuals) while offering incentives to move out and melt into the generic "white" suburban nightmare where communities were weaker, mixing up all ethnicities, religions, etc. Now with these carrot (low mortgages) and stick (crime) incentives they're pushing people back into the cities more than ever to leave all the natural resources of the land to the powers that be while also caging us in their Agenda 21 plans for "sustainability" for a fictional carbon scare scam. Further, socialism and unions have been utterly demonized as billionaires pay millionaires to tell the middle class that the poor are the problem, never ever focusing on the billionaire Zionist globalist engineers. Add feminism waves, the extremist trans agenda (that most of them don't even want), bizarro incels, SJW political correctness to absurdist extremes, manufactured racism, and whatever other distractions, divisions, and political theater you can imagine - and you've deconstructed ethnicities, communities, unions, families and are left with weak individuals vs the mighty corporatocracy. Also to be clear, I know that not everyone in those tribes I just mentioned are extremists or "bizarro" - but they capitalize on the sensational ones in order to demonize and divide.

2) I'm not deep into Men's Rights at all, however I have yet to ever see anything remotely resembling what you stated about taking away female rights. Maybe I haven't looked deeply enough or have subconsciously ignored the sensational buffoons (just as likely as many idiots as CIA assets) or something but I here are a couple examples off the top of my head that may change your mind: The Red Pill documentary by Cassie Jaye and Feminism - Fiamengo Files with Janice Fiamengo who IMO is a little harsher than she could be on feminists on occasion yet gets to the point and is brief with excellent clarity. There's also the Honey Badgers that I'd heard of years ago. They stand out in my memory because they provided a lot of content clearly and evenly without getting extreme - plus they are ALL females for men's rights, as well as women's and children's rights. I don't need men to tell me how great men are, just like I don't need Ayn Rand to sell me on how greed is good (a Gore Vidal misquote). Above all, they make clear sense to me and realize we need to all have rights, including children's rights and we need to unify, strengthen, and resist the exploitation, division, and oppression of our overlords. In my limited experience, it seems to me most men's rights folks believe that everyone, men, women, and children have legit specific concerns, but MUCH more in common against the corporatocracy and we'd do better uniting and supporting each other.

3) I don't really know what you mean. If you mean go away, then ya, I agree for the most part about the noisy ones. From what I understand, the majority are silent and actually just going their own way defining their own lives and don't need the MGTOW label. I for one might fall into that later category but wouldn't ever call myself that. Especially since I hope my relationship days are not yet over, and when I have had girlfriends it was always that we were going our own way in our own style (ie. Burning Man, alternatives, sustainability, self reliant, indie filmmaker, etc etc etc).

3b) Do you recognize there's a difference between Men's Rights and MGTOW? Many of the former don't like the latter for their antics. I don't know much about whatever antics they mean, as honestly they've bored me so I don't even look when it come up anymore - like country music or car commercials - just not interested.

4) I don't see how. I know I sound like a broken record, but the social engineering of the corporatocracy is pushing the distraction and division with equality like it's attainable when it seems obvious to me the authentic solution is fairness. Formerly men should not be competing in women's sports and should not pretend they have periods or babies. Sure those are extremist and obvious, but this social engineering tapers off to the long tail of micro this and micro that nitpicky stuff - meanwhile we're never questioning the powers that be and their matrix of rigged systems, monopolies, monopoly on violence, bankster scams, and full spectrum dominance.

5) I'm guessing/hoping WGTOW isn't as silly as MGTOW can get. Feel free to skip or expand as you like.

6) What does Pink Pill mean/stand for?

I'm happy to hear you still have hope. I do too. I think it's important. The sidebox reads "there is nothing we can do about it" but I don't buy that. Maybe we're all doomed, but we can go out in style with grace and compassion, support each other, and resist as long and as hard and as much as possible.

Thanks again for your response. Don't feel like you need to indulge all of my verbose nonsense, but I'll thank you in advance for whatever you might like to riff on.

Dark Enlightenment is now on Saidit by deAccount in DarkEnlightenment

That's all very good to know - maybe even worth mentioning in the sidebox. That's a lot of text already and with links I'd be impressed if you could fit much more up to the 5120 character limit (including spaces). I know it precisely because I ran into it this morning: /s/Illusions/

I guess the DarkEnlightenment will make itself known if/when they migrate here or as the feed develops.

SJWs are certainly a problem, even worse than the religious conservatives of the 80s and 90s. MANY on the old-left are VERY upset about them. The CIA owns all the Dems now and they're just social engineering us all into the depopulation apocalypse. It's going to get much much much worse and will never return to anything like "normal", even if humanity can somehow manage to turn around and rise up against the corporatocracy.

The SaidIt rules are few but insist on tolerant mods - unless your feed expresses sub-rules in your sidebox. Ambiguous rules are an interesting gray area I haven't seen before. I'm not sure whether to scold or salute you. :P

That makes no sense. It has nothing to do with Toronto. It was a best selling album. When it came out I was attending high school in Windsor and worked at the A&M Record store in Tecumseh Mall selling copious albums on vinyl, cassettes, and CDs back then. Since then and after all my adventures in Toronto, NY, Austin, SF, Vancouver, etc. I'm back in Windsor now. I don't listen to U2 anymore, but I still listen to Lanois and Eno in my playlists.

Are you talking about Mao or the West with their CIA and Mossad meddling operations, installed dictators, proxy wars, and all-out wars?

It seems unfair to paint all commies with the same brush. I mean Stalin only killed 40 million and no other commies even came close to Mao or Stalin who were supported by the West - Mao by Yale's Skull & Bones and Stalin via Israel with Churchill and FDR until it became convenient to have another "enemy".

The sooner you give up your tribalist Hegelian bullshit against commies the sooner you'll realize that capitalism and communism are 2 sides of the same totalitarian coin and they've finally merged into a globalist totalitarianism that is currently shaping the new normal world order. The USA is more commie than ever as China is more capitalist than ever and while they may rattle their sabers at each other they're still trading without sanctions of little consequence and will continue to build their militaries - the largest socialist projects in the world - payed for by the tax payer whether they want to or not. And soon enough those armies will be turned on their own citizens as have been practiced in smaller countries. Why else do you think your seemingly impotent Trump is just letting cities burn? So he can eventually bring in the heavy hammer to restore order after his profoundly epic failure of leadership.

You should know about what that shit-disturber did (/s/HolocaustSkepticism) before you judge "people like me" whatever that might actually mean. Also note that while I told the self-confessed rat off I did not call him names and spoke my truth while abiding by the Pyramid of Debate (my graphic design, as with the SaidIt logo). That stupid arbitrary limit rule came AFTER all that shit and while I was away dealing with the fallout of all his manufactured bullshit and as you currently can see I am NOT in violation if that's what your exceptionally ambiguous beef is about. If you want downvotes you are free to start your own old-Reddit-based federated site and downvote me there as much as you want. Meanwhile, continue to be a 12 days old agro-comment sniper that you seem to be if you must, but if you continue to attack folks and drag down the discourse you will certainly be dealt with by M7D3.

How to backup your favorite banned Reddit content by d3rr in MeanwhileOnReddit

"Good looking"? Maybe once, a dozen years ago. Today I took the first selfie in a dozen years or more, [for reasons] perhaps as a before if there's an after. It's on a camera I have to plug in to see if any are actually good enough to share - so "good looking" remains to be seen - or not.

I didn't expect all answered, nor so quickly, but am glad you did, thanks. Regarding several of them, if demand calls for it, it might be worth supervising any bot development to be sure it's done properly and including the dates, votes, and whatever other metadata might be worth keeping as well as to be sure it doesn't jam up your system. I'm not a Redditor but I know there's some value there, and it seems some folks migrating are keen on it.

4) It occurred to me that there could be some fun creative reasons to forge a thread, though you wouldn't need to go so far as to import it. Specifically, 2 primo examples come to mind - the brilliant epic https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Liaisons_dangereuses and clever and beautiful https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griffin_and_Sabine both written as epistolary novels (correspondence letters between people explaining events and thus laying out the story for the reader).

5) I can easily understand why you may have been distracted by everything since the dawn of SaidIt, but IMO, to weaken the target on your backs and to strengthen the future of Saidit (and freedom for humanity) it seems like this one should be kicked up to be among the top priorities - especially since the 2020 gear shift. Who knows what other nonsense bullshit they may be planning. Things are bad but it seems certain they are going to get worse and stay worse forever unless they are outed with something decentralized they can't defeat. I hate to say it but if you or M7 were to be grabbed for some stupid mask infraction or whatever, intentionally or accidentally silencing SaidIt or leaving it rudderless, we'd have no way of knowing or helping or whatever. (I hope you guys have some backup plans, deadman switches, virtual emergency flares, etc.)

6) That is fun. If I recall, Lemmy had an epic fail data loss at one point? What's the other instance called? (Today I saw your Reddit alternatives list got censored.) I don't know what "real Reddit federation" means. I though you had one. Can they merge? This is exciting (I think). I read the federation news a few weeks ago (congrats) and meant to add it to the SaidIt article on IG, but I didn't understand parts of it and wanted to get more feedback/details from you two. Then the DDoS happened, then I got locked out for several days, then my end got fubar and I took all that as a sign to finally quit my SaidIt addiction which I was slowly getting around to (by making more banners and non-discussion stuff). I'm going to try to only come back at the ends and middles of every month until my project(s) are ready to share. I'll make exceptions and return to SaidIt for 3 things: 1) work on CSS and/or banners stuff (with your help when you're not busy) 2) work on the mobile SaidIt thing you'd mentioned (whenever you've got time for it, or can explain it and leave it with me, or whatever) or 3) if you guys are interested I could design a logo for your new federation under your guidance (something for the inevitable online store).

Also, what's new regarding SaidIt the last few weeks? I feel like I missed some things (I don't recall blue checkmarks and some other newish formatting). (I'm good news-wise, and know about the purges on Reddit and YouTube from elsewhere and I've only seen a bit of it here so far. I plan to catch up a bit while I share some stuff over the next few days before I return to my own non-SaidIt-addicted new normal.) PM if you like, or not, or ignore it if there's nothing grand since the DDoS (of which I'm more than a little curious about).

I am an voluntarist-progressive (or old-fashioned anarcho-lefty since before SJWs became a thing) which is very different than the insane corporate Dem Far-Left of self-proclaimed (false) progressives, so I hope you won't mind folks like me.

I'm not here to stir up shit, but I am very confused about a bunch of stuff in your sidebox description. While I could speculate on much of it and confidently tear a few holes in a few things as well as certainly support others, I'm wondering if you might either explain them further of your own accord or maybe consider allowing me to ask about them paragraph by pharagraph? You could call me a devils advocate or a constructive critic but I'd simply rather be a curious person with my own views, some similar, some not - rather than a label. I'm here to be exposed to new ideas and learn and share, and maybe even change my mind.

I thought your brain was sexy before, but now it's exponentially prodigious.

Most of it is Greek to me, but I have some questions:

  1. Is it possible to reupload old content into SaidIt/NotABug/etc that uses its own old datestamp rather than being "new"? If this were possible, that would be terrific for those who've backed up yet feel like they've lost their communities. If it's not possible then reposting it all anew could be painful for the rest of us unless there were limits. Which brings me to...

  2. Is it possible to make a bot to auto reup or repost an archive? And is it possible for that bot to skip over /s/all and/or use the old datestamp? And is this bot-post-frequency a conversation worth having in /s/SaidItBots regarding the frequency of posts for not only stuff like this but in general and/or specifically about other topics/issues. Of course it's also simply easy to leave it until it becomes an issue - if ever.

  3. Regarding the archive votes, IMO, that's interesting information that's potentially worth saving. As you import the old posts as reups or reposts I'm guessing the SaidIt votes might start from zero. It might be nice for that import-bot to make a note of the votes in the comments - or if you want to get fancy make a new "untouchable" RAI (Reddit Archive Import) vote section that displays the frozen score with a tally that can only be adjusted if more information comes from further import information (ie. if they are importing from a not-yet-banned-sub and/or a more recent archive).

  4. Is there any way to validate the archives and importing? I wouldn't expect forgeries or tampering right away, but I suspect that eventually there could be meddling if there was a motive and a way. Sad but true.

  5. Federating SaidIt is the first big step in what I believe is the most important goal - decentralization. In my limited non-tech savvy opinion, it seems to me that sharing backup(s) of the archive(s) (via torrent?) is the next most important step. I don't know how related this kind of large-scale archiving is comparative to isolated sub-archiving and/or if they can be imported in a similar manner - but it sure would be nice for anyone interested to be able to. I have no interest in creating my own server and instance unless it helps in my small way as backup, but I am very interested in helping to perpetuate archive backup torrents because I know that can help. (People are still asking me to share my old Tigole aggregations and anticipating my new ones that I haven't made in about a year.)

  6. If relevant - maybe repost on /s/DecentralizeAllThings and/or add to that wiki?

  7. There is no 7

Great work!

Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Count Dracula and you have entered s/vampires by Dracula in vampires

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

How about vampires in video games (I don't play them) and vampires in politics (pedogate, banksters, insurance, big pharma, Bill Gates, etc) and vampires in the animal kingdom (mosquitoes, leaches, bats, etc)? Or my favourite at Burning Man: Vampyros - vampires who like to play with fire. Fire good!

I was a vampire in the 4th grade for Hallowe'en. I loved Bram Stoker's Dracula, Queen Of The Damned, and Interview With A Vampire despite their flaws. Dracula 2000 and True Blood were okay at best. I kinda feel like it's all slid downhill since then, though I wish it wouldn't. I think the Tom Cruise Mummy had some great moments (ie. zero-G in a plane) but I see why it flopped, and sadly the Universal Monsters franchise died before it was born. To revive/improve vampire stories they need good narrative structure, compelling characters, and heaps of style (Guillermo del Toro, old Tim Burton, etc).

See also: /s/Gothic (and empty /s/Goth - and maybe oneday: /s/CyberGoth my fave).

From Reddit by LisbonMuse in BlackPillFeminism

[–]JasonCarswell 3 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Can you explain more about what Black Pill Feminism is about?

For example:

  1. Do you believe that the second wave feminism was coopted by the CIA (ie Gloria Steinem), etc and that the legit aims of it were subverted by the goals of destroying the family unit? etc.

  2. Do you feel that Men's Rights and Children's Rights are as legit and valid as Female Rights - yet you think the SJW movement has coopted the narrative?

  3. What do you think of MGTOW?

  4. If equality is a lie (and it seems obvious that we are different) how do you feel about fairness as a goal?

I could go on forever with speculative questions. I numbered them to make it easy to respond to if you chose one or more.

Or - do you still subscribe to the Third and Forth Wave Feminism stuff but feel it's losing/lost? How is it a scam? It's ironic that the far-left corporations are supporting Black Lives and Feminism yet hypocritically their boards remain rich white dudes.

I'm not trying to stir shit up, I'm just legit curious what your views are. I think everyone's/all views/opinions are valid, but some are more correct and/or informed and/or nuanced than others. Personally I'm for women's rights as well as men's and children's rights - but not in favour of the corporatocracy social engineering in the feminism waves.

Ah, I just registered the 'Female Only' again. I'd forgotten in my confusion. Today I sexually identify as an avocado and tomorrow I will be an attack helicopter (again) - so make of that what you will. Censor me if you must, though IMO, you're missing out on some potentially good discussion - though I understand why you might want to make some more stern rules depending on what Black Pill Feminism actually means.

Regardless, welcome to SaidIt.

Tin Foil Hat w/ Sam Tripoli #253: The Silicon Valley Occult w/ Steve Outtrim (1:36:40) ~ Tin Foil Hat with Sam Tripoli, 2019-12-26 by JasonCarswell in TinFoilHat

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Steve Outtrim is a sensationalist L I A R about Burning Man, though the rest seems true enough.

People are NOT allowed to have sex openly at Burning Man, much less in front of children. Intentionally or otherwise Outtrim is sensationally misrepresenting an lying about Burning Man to discredit all of the unique non-corporatocracy thinking and alternative solutions there. Sure there are problems, like at any event, festival, celebration, or largely populated occurrence - but he's on a disinfo campaign to smear Burning Man much like the rest of the MSM. People are freer at Burning Man to do or not do whatever they chose to as a participant of the event. There is much I did not do in my 10 years attending yet there is much I tried there and or continue to do in my regular life and am eternally grateful for.

Outtrim offers ONLY SPECULATION that Burning Man and Bohemian Grove have deep rooted connections. I'm quite certain a handful of people have been to both events (as well as Disneyland, a Stones concert, other events, places, cities, etc etc etc) but it really DOES NOT mean that the entire event nor its participants are deeply connected. Slim coincidences DON'T make for good conspiracies.

Outtrim NEVER PROVIDES PROOF, only vague opinion and mere speculation, and he claims San Francisco is the most Satanic place on Earth - ignoring the Pentagon, Washington, Wall Street, Hollywood, the City of London, Vatican, B.I.S., etc etc etc.

Northern California has some baggage with Bohemian Grove and Silicon Valley (among many other things) but there's sooo much more that's great about it too. What's not mentioned is that Burning Man takes place in Nevada near Reno and people from ALL OVER THE WORLD attend, from across the USA, Canada, and much further afield AND there are countless Burning Man-related spin-off regional events around the world. Yet they are not demonized, nor should be (even if/when some individuals may try to be rotten apples).

Further ignored is that 3 county sheriffs, the state, and national agencies all get a cut of the Burning Man intake (a second tax on its citizens) and it's all done with their permission and under their watchful eye. This isn't to say that I approve of "authority" but I am pointing out that Burning Man is a "legitimized" event that the government and their agents allow to occur.

Burning Man is not about a ritual sacrifice. It's an artistic bonfire that celebrates the temporary ephemeral aspects of life like a Buddhist sand mandala, beautiful then gone with the wind.

I can't speak to the interpretations of Outrim or the Google found'er's dancing - but slandering the rest of the Burner community by association is next to criminal in my opinion. That's like blaming ALL Americans for the evils of their Empire.

Lastly, I want EVIDENCE that the CIA helped create Burning Man and/or meddles in its culture. I don't expect Outtrim will find much in the not-secret actual origin story of Burning Man and the suppressed and limited alternative culture. If there's another hidden verifiable narrative I would love to hear about it and eat my critical words about Outtrim - but even that won't negate all the good there is that comes from the Burning Man community. On the other hand, there is plenty of evidence the CIA was instrumental to Timothy Leary, the Grateful Dead, and the distribution of LSD along with the BROAD propagation of the 1960s counter-culture's social engineering.

Outtrim claims to be rich and independent and from Silicon Valley. By that measure alone by his own standards he should NOT be believed.

Note: I wrote this as a comment on YouTube, then it got long. I also know that YouTube will censor without notice - so I posted here for the permanent record.

FYI: The Tin Foil Hat image added the circle-pentagram and goat head shit to this video's thumbnail image. Burning Man would never have that on the main Man, though I'm quite certain there are some Satanists (along with every other religion) at Burning Man.
