  1. There's not much I can add to what's been said here but one side is trying to give kids free school lunches, the other side is forcing kids to have their rapist's babies. Maybe to you it's a small distinction but that's probably because you're not living in an area where your life was majorly impacted by conservative legislation.
  2. The US is only 245 years old and built on paved over graves
  3. All things in life in moderation...especially moderation.
  4. For your commonplace books, This is a great little writing tool for writing any kind of book, rpg, resources, or whatever writing you do. I've barley scratched the surface but there's a lot of potential; it's free to dabble in, looks fairly priced, and I feel that the people on this forum could do a lot with it. Leaving a link, give it a glance. https://www.campfirewriting.com/
  5. Between this and Biden's last speech saying MAGA is extremists, it's been a strong start to the month.
  6. Maybe it's the socialist side of me talking but this "inflation" we are experiencing is mostly lack of redistribution of wealth. To my understanding, big companies and banks received massive gains and debt forgiveness over the pandemic. My understanding of economics is pretty basic but there's a lot of factors that play into inflation. It is definitely a good thing for the wealthy who can drive their prices up without raising workers' wages. Your minimalist take on being happy with all that you are blessed with is a noble one, but it doesn't apply to the elite responsible for squeezing the average citizen. It's also difficult to tell that to an American struggling with mental health problems they can't afford to treat, hospital bills, raising rent, and general worker mistreatment in a wage slave job. Yes, we can be happy with what we have and there's lessons to be learned from that. That doesn't mean, however, that we have to be okay with the reasons behind the inflation and the lack of responsibility our representatives have for it.
  7. "Legal" doesn't necessarily mean they become a commodity. If they are legal through clinics for people addicted, regulated, and people aren't thrown in jail for use/possession then I think it would be an overall positive impact. I don't think we would see cocaine dispensaries or anything like that. Selling them on the streets should still be illegal though.
  8. I see it more of a reflection on how we worship money and those who have it.
  9. I've noticed that the voter turnout for the last major election had record participation for numerous reasons. Great! However, in a somewhat recent post, a girl was grazed by a bullet and Ann Brenoff replied with the classic "vote harder" take the DNC pushes. This response is disheartening for people who voted blue and has become a sort of, "Thoughts and prayers" for the left. Despite record turnouts we still can't get momentum in the right direction from the politicians we vote for. The problem with voting for the Democratic party is that young people see this inaction and it increases voter apathy; they either don't vote anymore or they vote 3rd party. Either is like giving a vote to the republicans since they vote religiously. It's Important to vote but we need collective movement to make things happen. Republicans are great at this, I mean they were ready to storm the capitol on Jan 6th. If the left had that same energy but for organizing for something like healthcare, unions, or student loan forgiveness then we could make meaningful change in this country. This is disconcerting because I feel like we have great potential to go in either direction right now and I don't feel like there's enough enthusiasm for organization.
  10. I just tell people I'm an omnist now, it's easier to explain to normies.
  11. I appreciate the answers but I was hoping for a little deeper thoughts from this forum
  12. When I was first waking up around 2014 a friend of mine showed me this channel, Spirit Science. If you aren't familiar, its ran by a guy named Jordan who used to be an animator on Newgrounds. He moved on to making youtube videos in a style similar to Extra Credits about spirituality. Some of the things he talks about are on point like sacred geometry and what he has to say about levels of consciousness. The controversy comes (mostly) from his video on human history: In particular, he loses people once he talks about Hebrews being an alien race and Martians coming to earth after destroying their own atmosphere. Despite that, he makes some interesting points and regardless if this is true or not it sparked my interest in human history and our evolution. This video also led me to contemplate my own consciousness which eventually led me to Leo. Chris O'Neil from Oney Plays knew him on Newgrounds and just says, "This man is now the leader of an actual cult" and most the skeptics and criticisms I see tend to come back to that. People say Leo is a cult leader too but I know that's false and dismissive. Jordan is a lot less direct than Leo though and it's hard to read his true intentions. If nothing else he's a clever storyteller and good at animation, and he helped lead to my first awakening so there's that. What's his deal though? Is he a cult leader, full of shit, or is he misunderstood and we all are a product of falling from a much higher level of consciousness many many years ago? I've thought about posting this on here years ago I just never felt like bringing it up. I guess I was avoiding wanting to know the truth, but now I really want to know what other people think of Spirit Science.
  13. @Yarco Thank you, I had no idea LinkedIn had online classes.
  14. I'm looking to get into online business classes and there's so many out there now, coursera, skillshare, udemy, etc. Any recommendations or suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks
