If my recent post is seriously that bad, then I should mention it here.  I seriously thought it was good idea, but actually it is so bad that no matter can explain how bad it is.

I don't know if I should delete the post or not. the self bias comes from the moment in which we think we figured everything out when in reality we are so wrong that words can not explain it.  Sorry.

Relax you tried to help someone, I think that's a nice thing. 

I'd leave it. Someone might learn something from it.

It’s one thing to deplore eugenics on ideological, political, moral grounds. It’s quite another to conclude that it wouldn’t work in practice. Of course it would. It works for cows, horses, pigs, dogs & roses. Why on earth wouldn’t it work for humans? Facts ignore ideology. - Richard Dawkins

 

 

Okay... I guess but... Why say this?! And why on Twitter... Dawkins has been idolizing his 19th century scientific heroes a little bit too much lately... 


It's just a ride.

Go visit r/getmotivated. There is no shortage of absolutely ridiculous quotes. Many of which masquerading as noble and empowering while actually propagating toxic and selfish values at the cost of others.

It’s factually accurate and there’s nothing wrong with saying so if you ignore all the ideological, political, and moral baggage that the word eugenics brings with it. Truth is under no obligation to be palatable.

"It’s one thing to deplore slavery on ideological, political, moral grounds. It’s quite another to conclude that it wouldn’t work in practice. Of course it would. It worked on black people. Why on earth wouldnt it work today? Facts ignore ideology."

 

See, sometimes you should say nothing even if its "true".


It's just a ride.

"When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is."

-- Oscar Wilde

I saw this quote at the first few pages of my finance professors' workbook. I honestly can't tell if that's sarcasm or not.
