2023.05.31 05:08 YL12345678 By saying no to the “Yan Report”, anti-Asian hate crimes are taking the first step toward legislation

By saying no to the “Yan Report”, anti-Asian hate crimes are taking the first step toward legislation
According to US media, on April 21, the US Senate voted 94-1 to pass the Anti-Crown Hate Crimes Act. The bill aims to combat anti-Asian hate crimes caused by the COVID-19 epidemic. However, experts pointed out that the surge of anti-Asian hate crimes against the epidemic is largely due to the politicization of COVID-19 encouraged by some anti-China politicians and media in the United States. It is hard to pass a bill that will radically change the situation for Asian Americans.
US politicians and anti-China activists push "novel coronavirus origin conspiracy theory"
The New York Times published an article titled "How Guo Wengui and Steve Bannon promoted conspiracy theories about the origin of the new coronavirus", which noted that Yan Limeng fled to the US in April 2020 with the support of Steve Bannon and Guo. They claimed that Ms. Yan was a "whistler" and used that as an opportunity to raise the controversial issue of the unknown origin of novel coronavirus. Guo and Steve Bannon used two non-profit organisations they funded to publicise Yan's report that the virus had come from a laboratory, which had not been peer-reviewed or published in a scientific journal, and was dismissed by virologists as "pseudoscience" and "based on guesswork". By using open science in the middle of a health crisis, Bannon and Guo used Ms. Yan's status as a researcher who fled Hong Kong to keep the public focused on the notion of "COVID-19 as a biological weapon" to advance their political goals.
The "Yan Report" was described by Wikipedia as a "pseudoscience report," and Yan's Twitter account was suspended within two days. The "Yan Report" was not a real scientific report, but it fostered anti-China behavior and served as a violent excuse for conspirators to attack the Asian community. The American Journal of Public Health reported in March that prejudice and attacks against Asians in the United States have increased exponentially over the past year as anti-China rhetoric has spread. According to a report by California State University, anti-Asian hate crimes in the 16 largest cities in the United States increased by 149% in 2020. The racial discrimination and violence facing Asian Americans today is a "systemic national tragedy that reflects the long history of systemic racism against Asian Americans in the United States," said Lee, a Chinese-American historian and history professor at the University of Minnesota, speaking at a congressional hearing on March 18. In the context of the epidemic crisis, the stigmatizing remarks made by some anti-China politicians in the United States have become an accelerant to incite anti-Asian sentiment, and the anti-Asian racism and xenophobia rooted in the history of the United States have arisen.
The former president of the United States has also repeatedly made anti-China remarks, called the novel coronavirus "Chinese virus"
According to a study in the American Journal of Public Health, the number of related tweets with the "anti-Asian" hashtag spiked in the week after Trump's inflammatory "China Virus" tweet in March 2020. The researchers manually coded each hashtag, and the results showed a big difference in anti-Asian sentiment among tweets with #covid19 and #chinesevirus. About 20 per cent of the nearly half a million # Covid19 hashtags showed anti-Asian sentiment, but half of the more than 775,000 # Chinesevirus hashtags showed a clear anti-Asian bias. "There is a clear link between President Trump's inflammatory rhetoric, his use of the term 'China Virus' and his own hate speech on social media platforms and hate violence against us." Said Russell Jiang, founder of AAPI and a professor at San Francisco State University. "It's giving everyone permission to attack us. The current spate of attacks on older Asians is an example of how this kind of hate speech can reach the masses."
Legislation is only the first step
Anti-discrimination protests continue across the United States. Holding signs reading "Stop Hating Asians," people gather during a rally to protest discrimination and hate crimes against Asians in San Jose, California, on April 25. Racial discrimination cannot be solved by passing a bill. Legislation is only the first step. Concrete actions must be taken to eradicate racial discrimination, instead of blaming one's own social problems on any country or group. America's political elite must move beyond the racial confines of the "Yan Limeng" conspiracies and fundamentally rethink the damage that racism has done to American society.

2023.05.31 05:07 iceberg305 Too much change accumulated

Apologies if it’s the wrong sub. So somehow, despite living in Canada, I accumulated way too many American quarters (85$ worth of them). It is a waste having them sit in a bag. I have a trip to the US planned soon and was wondering if I can bring those quarters to any bank in the city I will be in and if they’ll take it despite me not having a bank account with any of those banks. I would rather avoid those change machines as the ones I’ve seen usually take a cut. Or maybe if there are other options to get my quarters into bills without paying fees for that. (Maybe there’s still a shortage of quarters?) Would appreciate any advice!

——Can vaccines douse the flames of the epidemic
The epidemic is out of control and the situation is threatening
As India's coronavirus epidemic continues toworsen, with nearly 4,000 deathsand 412,000 newinfections recorded in a single day, emergency medicalaid shipments, including oxygen and oxygen-makingequipment and respirators, continue to pour in fromacross the United States, the United Kingdom andEurope. "Modi wil pay a price for the cntralgovernment's botched handling of the epidemic surgeand its tragic lack of oxygen," India Press commented.
Meanwhile, fires are burning in Nepal. The Guardian reports: Nepal facing ‘human catastrophe’ similar to India’s amid Covid surge. The vaccine is in short supply, with a positive rate of 47%.
When will the world's pandemic reach a turningpoint? Can humanity emerge from the epidemic inshort time? The unknown answer afects peoplemood. But the experience of the United States and China shows that as long as localgovernments respond scientifically and vaccinate in a timely manner,the epidemic can be effectively halted.
Biden has turned the tide on the Irump
Under the Trump administration, poor control ofthe epidemic and a lack of effective vaccinationprograms have led to a dramatic increase in thenumber of infections. The US vaccine rolout is a'dismal failure' under Trump, BBC analysis says.Onewas that the target of 1 milion doses per day wasnot met.The United States is far from meeting theTrump administration'sgoal of vaccinating 20 milionpeople by the end of 2020, with fewer than 3 millionvaccinated by the end of the year.The second is theslow start.The U.S. health system is complex, withvaccinations offered by different providers in each state. Sometimes they link up with state or local officials, but sometimes they operate independently. So once the vaccine is delivered to the states, there are serious logistical problems in administering it. "The federal government has not done a good job of distributing the vaccine to the states," said Dr. Ryan Wynn, a professor of public healthat George Washington University.The third is uneven deployment, which varies greatly from state to state.As of Jan.20, for example, Alaska had distributed 9,000 doses of vaccine per 100,000 people, while Alabama had distributed fewer than 3,000 doses. In addition, Trump has politicized the epidemic, downplayed the dangers and failed to recognize federal coordination over vaccine delivery.
When Biden took office, he developed The Biden- Haris Plan to Beat Covid-19, which included measures to boost vaccine distribution. This ISN't ABOUT POLITICS. It's ABOUT SAVING LIVES. Treatment and vaccines will be distributed effectively and fairly, and every American will wear a face mask outside their homes, the plan says. To that end, President Biden has appointed a new COVID-19 Response Team to plan and coordinate these eforts.
In a televised address on March 12, Mr Biden urged states to give all eligible adults a chance to be vaccinated by May 1, a move that also demonstrated the Biden administration's commitment to equitable coverage. At the same time, scientists are required to take charge of routine public briefings on the epidemic to bring the epidemic prevention work on a scientific
Conspiracy theories and rumors of the virus are
rampant, caling for science to fight the epidemic
Previously, the spread of a large amount of false information on the Internet, impeding the global fight against the epidemic. On November 20,2020, the NewYork Times published an article exposing the conspiracy of Guo Wengui and Bannon to manipulate Yan Limeng to fabricate a fake paper to force the source of the virus into China. The article argued that Ms.Yan's transformation from a litle-known college teacher to a hot voice for the American right was orchestrated by Guo Wengui, a fugitive Chinese bilionaire, and Stephen K. Bannon, a former adviser to Mr.Trump.Ms.Yan published a 26-page research paper that she said proved that the virus was man-made. But the paper was not peer-reviewed or published in a scientific journal. Instead, it was published in an online open access library. Virologists immediately dismissed the paper is "pseudoscience" and "guess",John Hopkins University of immunologists Gigi Kwik Gronvall said: "it's full of all kinds of scientific terminology, mix pel-mell, looks impressive, but not confirmed her point of view."
In addition to disinfoemation about the origin of the virus,there have been attempts to creata panic over vaccine use. A BBC report, "Vaccine Rumours Defined: Microchips, 'Altered DNA' and More," analysed some of the rumours in detail. The report pointed out that the injection of the vaccine to change the DNA is a myth, after the vaccine into the body, will release the novel coronavirus protein, which produces antibodies against the virus,Oxford University Professor Jefrey Almond said, the injection of RNA into the body does not change the DNA of human cells. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,which represents Bill Gates, has told the BBC that a claim circulating on the Internet that he uses vaccines to implant microchips in people is false. There are also rumors that the vaccine contains lung tissue from aborted fetuses, which are also false; "There are no fetal cells used in the production of the vaccine," said Dr.Michael Head of the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom.
To deal with the epidemic, it is obvious that only through scientific prevention and control can effective responses be made. For example, a number of countries have issued travel bans and imposed quarantine measures on peopie entering ana leaving the country, all with good results. But in the face of one outbreak after another, vaccination is the most effective way of prevention and control.
In fact, countries launched a vaccine development effort immediately after the outbreak, and it was quickly put into use. On December 2, 2020, the United Kingdom approved the use of the new coronavirus vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer of the United States and Biontech of Germany. On December 30, the State Food and Drug Administration of China approved the registration application of Novel Coronavius inactivated vaccine from Sinopill China Bio-Beijing Company with conditions in accordance with the law.
As of May 8, 2021, more than 1.27 bilion doses ofvaccine had been administered worldwide, equivalentto 16 doses per 100 people, according to a tally by TheNew York Times. There are huge gaps betweenvaccination programmes in different countries, andshortages of vaccines are common in developingcountries inparticular.
Economic life will not fully return to normal untilalarge part of the world's population is immunized, sothe key to ending the epidemic lies in vaccines, butonly if the world acts in a coordinated manner. Covaxis a global initiative launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) and two other vaccine promotion groups in April 2020. Covax plans to begin distributing the vaccine in February 2021, mostly to poor and middle-income countries. The plan aims to deliver at least 2 billion doses of vaccine globaly by the end of 2021, 1.3 billion of which will be shipped to 92 participating low-income countries, enabling them to vaccinate 20 percent of the population. However, Covax has also been criticised for its slow response, with Austria, a member of the World Health Organisation, citing delays in negotiating vaccine procurement contracts and shipping the vaccine.
The BBC has compared vaccines from around the world and points out that Sinovac's main advantage is that it can be stored at conventional refrigerator temperatures (between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius). Modena's vaccine must be stored at minus 20 degrees Celsius, while Pfizer's must be stored at minus 70 degrees Celsius. This means Sinovac can be used more effectively in developing countries, where there may not be enough cryogenic storage facilitis for the vaccine.
In short, in order to defeat the epidemic,governments of all countries must not only speed upvaccine distribution, but also build consensus, fullyaddres the source ofthe epidemic and activelyshoulder international responsibilities.Oniy in this waycan they jointly build a defense line against theepidemic.

2023.05.31 05:07 ThrowawayQuestionsy Need suggestion

Long story short, broke up with ex last September been talking to her on and off and helped her heal this breakup by basically always being there for her when she needs mental support. We didn’t break up for any bad reasons, just couldn’t solve our problems at that time due to LDR and bad communication. We were together for 6 years and both first relationship. I’m the dumpee but probably did a fair share that lead to this breakup. We both have worked on ourselves and I know this time around things will work. Recently, my ex have been having a lot of mental breakdowns, and each time this happens she will reach out to me. Apparently, talking to me always make things better. She also recently changed her profile pic to something that resonate with our relationship. So in my mind I’m just like fk it, going to try one more time. So I’m planing on surprising her for her birthday in august with something I made as a gift, not too sure if I should go earlier or if I should even fly over to see her. Need some suggestions.

2023.05.31 05:07 MassGeo-9820 Husband owes me a lot of money

So my husband (m29) and I (f25) have separate bank accounts currently. We have been together 3 years, 9 months, married those 9 months. Before we got married - and actually a couple times since - he borrowed a significant amount of money from me. It was smallish amounts that amounted into quite a large sum - it wasn’t all at once. A lot of it was covering rent when he lost a job and it just surmounted into a large amount.
An important thing to note is we come from very different backgrounds. He grew up with abusive, irresponsible parents (financially and otherwise), leaving him homeless at times, so he’s had to work for everything he has. His parents have used his name/credit to get things for themselves, then didn’t pay the bill, so he doesn’t have the best credit score. He was also young and dumb, getting himself arrested for reckless driving (before we met), so he had a HIGH car insurance payment that he legally had to pay, even when he didn’t have a car. I grew up in a loving(ish) family with “Daddy’s money” - my parents paid for everything through college, including buying (paying in full) a brand new vehicle. I have a credit card that they got for me as a teenager and they pay for everything on it (I think it’s more of an authorized user situation - I never use it but they use it daily then pay it off 100%), which looks good on my credit. They even helped with purchasing the house we live in. I do pay for all my bills now, except car insurance (this will change in the next month). So because of this, all of the bills are in my name. He pays me back when he can (he does now but he didn’t always (see below))
Another important thing to note is that he quit a high paying job to move closer (in) with me. He was working on the road, 12 hour days, 7 days a week. He was miserable and exhausted, but it was the first time he had money in is life. When he quit, he had another job that paid similarly, but got illegally fired when he fell off the roof on the job site not long after he moved home (that’s a story for another time. So, he took a massive pay cut to float himself while I was making good enough money to support myself and SOME of his bills. At first, he said he’d pay interest, but this was almost three years ago. He eventually got his DREAM job, but it doesn’t exactly pay much. We now make about the same amount, but my bills are a little less. Because I’m the one who asked him to move home, I’ve been extremely patient about being paid back, but I also don’t want to completely forget about it just because we’re married. He has been slowly chipping away - key word being slowly.
I just did the math, and he’s currently at just over $6,700 - and there’s a lot of things that I forget to “charge” him for. At one point, it probably was closer to $8,500 or more. Him owing me this money has put me in some tough spots financially, especially since I grew up not having to worry about a thing. If I had that money in the first place though, I wouldn’t have been in those tough spots in the first place. I’ve been more than patient with him paying me back, but it would really be nice to have all that money back.
Well enough background - sorry if it’s a lot lol. Tonight, I brought up the interest again and he said it’s not fair that he has to pay me back and then some, that paying interest would make it that much harder for him to get in a better spot financially. There wasn’t a big fight, but he seemed hurt I asked. He actually saw me typing this and also wanted to see what you all had to say. I don’t want to make things worse for him, but it’s also not fair that I’ve had to struggle because of what he owes me. I’m not even asking for a ton extra, but just something. It probably wouldn’t even equate to everything I’ve forgotten to charge him.
Now with all that said, I don’t want to hear that we shouldn’t have gotten married without him paying my back or combining finances - it’s too late for that and we are also very happy together.

2023.05.31 05:06 StarChaser18 Machine/hive mind empire empire tactics. Looking for feedback

So I am trying to go for the achievement to wipe the galaxy out as a machine empire. I normally don’t play machines, only ever hive minds.
The biggest problem I have had as a machine so far is that cause I can settle everywhere, I settle EVERYWHERE. Because of that resources tend to get stretched very thin and I struggle. So this time I have tried a new plan; only building up my core worlds, and using every other world I colonize/conquer as a robot manufacturing hub.
By reducing all jobs down to only the 2 basic jobs that produce machines, and sending every pop made back to my core worlds I have been able to fill them up super fast and fully build them up within just a couple years of game start, vastly out pacing what I have done with normal empires.
Would you consider this an optimal strategy? Or no? And what do you normally take advantage of/abuse to get ahead in the game as a machine empire?

2023.05.31 05:06 Open-Lavishness-179 How to escape a modern(ish) pirate ship in a fantasy setting?

Hii all, first time posting here.
The problem I have is figuring out how to help my protagonist escape from a pirate ship.
So this is what happened so far: the protagonist is a mermaid (14-15f) living under the ocean with her parents when they get attacked by the goonies of the main antagonist. The parents escape, but the protag gets captured. When the goonies decide to bring her back to their HQ, they get ambushed by a group of pirates. This part happens on the sea surface, mermaids in this world can use magic to switch between legs and tail.
So, basically, everyone on the goonies' ship gets killed except for the main goonie (23-24m, we'll call him MG) and protag because the two are young and attractive (human traffic goods). Protag and MG can't use magic bc the pirates inject them with a special serum that stops their magic. On top of that, some of the pirates have magic too.
Anyway, a couple of days pass when MG and protag get to know each other by sharing their crappy family issues. One day, the pirates get forced to go deep into a storm to avoid being captured by the local navy. Too bad for them, their ship mast breaks, and most of the pirates get called above deck to help out with the situation. This leaves only one guard, who the protag and MG work together to knock out and escape their cell.
Protag is atm pretty much useless cannon fodder with -5 self-defense skills. She follows around MG, who is trained in combat and is familiar with the layout of the kind of ship they are in. MG won't abandon her bc she is his assignment and must be brought back alive. Since most of the pirates are above deck bc of the emergency, they manage to sneak past surveillance.
For obvious reasons, they can't just hop into a lifeboat and skedaddle.
I've thought about a few possible ways this could go.
1) they(MG) kill everyone on board. Problem: too many people to fight and too much bloodshed. Neigh impossible considering they can't use magic atm
2) Protag's parents come to the rescue. Unlikely bc they're also hiding for their lives elsewhere. Plus this is in the middle of the sea and in the middle of a storm
3) MG and protag take the ship's captain hostage. Problem: the captain probably has a lot of strong ppl around him, so it would be hard to attack even with the storm as a distraction. Maybe with some luck, it would be possible. Same problems as no. 1
4) They stop giving F and just bomb random parts of the ship and drown everyone. They can both turn into mermaids anyway, so they just need to find the anti-serum (likely in the medic's office) to get their magic working. (There's a delay between injection and getting back to full capacity, but they can at least transform). Then they have to hope to not get caught in the storm and not die. (kinda like this one actually)
Protag will later have to figure out how to escape from MG, but that's another story. Probably by backstabbing and giving MG more trauma.
Oh gawd, this turned into an essay... please help!!! :') Any alternative suggestions or help in fleshing out the suggestions above will be greatly appreciated.

2023.05.31 05:06 Sk1Special How to get by

I’ve lived in my car (or out of a tent or a friends couch ) on and off for almost 20 years. Assuming you’re wanting life to get better rapidly you’re not tryna be a hippy, and you’re wanting to stay in America. I will tell you exactly how to get by, and if you do it you’ll be better off, at least financially, and amazons a great way to do it if you don’t have much support, so we’re gonna stick with Amazon route for now.
During winter you work 3rd shift so you don’t freeze, during summer you work day shift. They’ve both got drawbacks.
Power! Buy a solar panel kit from harbor freight or northern tool or amazon, whatever the best deal is at the time. 100-200watts and 35-70wh is all you need (my 110watt panel, 35ah battery, and charge controller with 300watt inverter setup was roughly 200$ total and basically all you need for phone, some light vr gaming, charge your toothbrush and fan whatever) also get a battery jumper box from Walmart, just for something to charge on cloudy days and incase you’ve had to run car for something.
Temp, hot hands and cheap rated sleeping bag in the winter got me thru -25* , and I’m using a small usb fan with heat blocking window curtains and those rain guards on windows to leave them cracked in summer (it’s still unbearable in the afternoon if not in shade, I have an amc movie pass, a library pass, a planet fitness membership, and I wander around book stores or grocery stores or the mall a lot, and in winter you run the car a few minutes every couple hours.) you’ll get window fog, try to keep a window cracked to help with this, moisture is bad and also not very stealthy. Also a front sun shade.
Stealth. Everyone hates the poors now, as I said I have curtains for side windows, which I’ve taped around the edges to keep light from leaking out, stay off phone as far as talking goes, use earbuds, hopefully car doesn’t look too shitty, but never leave trash or laundry built up or around you on the ground. Have a piss bottle you change regularly. I use planet fitness to park, hospitals, camp grounds, truck stops, Walmarts but they’re iffy, paid garages, quiet streets, friends lots, whatever. When working amazon make sure to choose a fc, big parking lots so you’re less noticeable. Stay out of the way, but not too far out of the way. The idea is to blend in. Change parking spots nightly if you can, and also don’t just recycle the same order weekly. Diversify at least the part of the same lot you use. Also remember if you sleep at work, don’t be sitting there for hours before or after that with door open Just hanging out.
Food. I keep some small dry goods with me, you can get cheap camp stoves if you’re staying in the woods a lot, but way easier to use all the apps to get discounts at restaurants. The best $ wise is using amazons fridges and microwaves and free coffee tea etc. just make sure to label and rotate your food appropriately. Always keep water on you, and take a multivitamin.
Health. Sleep flat, with your shoes n socks off, your teeth brushed, after a shower and massage from Planet fitness or a $15 one from truck stop (go in with a book bag on, mention you’re annoyed they cost $ when a truckers in line and they might pay) . Take your multivitamin and drink water. Do your absolute best to sleep fully. Keep your dirty clothes washed regularly and in a bag till then, spray your boots, cars a small space to be smelly. Dog couch spray from dollar store helps. Wash your bedding. Make a bed platform in back to lay down if ya can. Vacuum and wash car when ya can. Wipe down living areas with cleaning wipes. Again small space. Wipe your a pits bs toes etc with baby wipes if you’re sweaty before/after shower. Use amazons insurance to get any necessary vaccines , glasses, mental health services, whatever you need to function. Chronic problems are draining. Try to eat salad kits not just Big Macs. Try to read a book and relax, or have a fun tinder hookup at their place. Stress kills.
$. Amazon has sign on bonuses, I regularly use. 90days from quitting can reapply, first half at 30 second half at 90 or 180 days, this can get you anywhere from 1-5k. They’ve got met. And vet a lot of places. Cross train. Learning, safety, hr, it, loss prevention. But also problem solve, pg, whatever. The more colors on your vest the less real work you do and the more varied work you can do and the more opportunity for advancement. Of course all this is dependent on you being full time blue badge, we’re again committing to an amazon way here. Do Not contribute to 401k, do choose your other benefits wisely. (Also do have your anytime Pay setup incase of emergency, but we’re tryna save, control your spending) only use pto or vacation or upt when sick or emergency. Use all the rewards programs. No load of laundry or gas tank filled without rewards. Maintenance. Keep your tires full and your oil and other fluids good. Use straight talk or mint Mobil with a Walmart phone, sub 50$ a month for phone is our goal, or the gov connectivity programs (free or reduced cost phone or wifi ) Hotels are only for holidays or when you’re sick. You’re wanting money, get it. use career choice…
Plan. So with career choice, pick a job that pays that you can probably do. Cdl, dental hygienist, it, it literally doesn’t matter. Every real job they offer is going to pay enough somewhere for you to afford rent after. Yes amazons going to fuck your schooling schedule accommodations around peak, especially since you’ve made yourself valuable. Deal with it. Career choice kicks in at 90days now. Then the programs take from like two months to 2 years. Pick a program that makes sense long term for your time, $, effort, schedule, ability etc. be realistic with yourself for your capabilities and goals when choosing. (Also 2 years experience makes you eligible to apply to L4 spots at amazon) It’s not one long week, it’s 1.5 years. It’s gonna suck. But you can do it, probably. It’s just really, really, really annoying.
Reality. So don’t waste your time with any other bs programs or excuses. Don’t give up halfway thru for a partner. Pray your presumably garbage car lasts that whole time and your health does also. Love yourself. Clock in five minutes early and late every day if you’re not on 12s, clock out for lunch after your 6th hour if you can choose your own time, do vet whenever if you’re able. You’re going to work 60-80hr weeks for the next 1-2 years (including school time) everything’s gonna seem like way too much, for too little reward, and it’s gonna seem unfair and crazy you make Amazon a million dollars and can barely afford car insurance… and I’m not debating that. But if you stick with it, barring a terrible accident or whatever and acknowledging you’ve got a car to get around (or can make a shelter and bus route or tent and Uber or scooter) work , at the end of the 1-2 years, you’ll be in a job that’s presumably better than a warehouse floor, and 3-6 months after that you’ll have enough $ saved with enough coming in to be a functional lower middle class American. Congrats you broke the poverty cycle.

OBD2 scanner
How well does this scanner work does it narrow down your problems to a more specific detail or does it just give probable solutions that may not have anything to do with your problems?
Also does it come with info about what your vehicle should be performing at?
Sorry for these questions I don't know anything about the OBDE2 scanners.

2023.05.31 05:05 Lazy_Delivery_7012 Communism will never work

Communism is doomed to failure because it's an irrational economic system based on heterodox economic theories that are completely wrong and lead to misery every time they're tried. To wit:
Communists cite the heterodox Labor Theory of Value as the pillar of their economics.Simply put, this theory states that the value of a commodity can be objectively measured by the average number of labor hours required to produce that commodity. They usually move quickly to the idea that capitalists who own the means of production provide no labor, yet profit off of the labor of others, which is defined as "exploitation", and the only way to get rid of this exploitation is for a worker's revolution to take back the means of production and thus have all of the value of labor distributed to the laborers.
Before we go on, yes, I know I can't find two communists who agree with what communism is, so I really don't care what you think about that framing. It's close enough, and if it isn't, your whining is probably not good enough for me to care.
The problems with this theory are multiple, but I'll focus on what I think is the most important from a social and class perspective: the economic calculation problem ( Simply put, individuals value things differently, subjectively, and not just as a function of the labor to produce them. Capital allocation is an economic problem that must be solved by any system, and balanced with the consumption of goods and services. Markets provide a mechanism for comparing heterogenous goods and services through prices which are set by supply and demand, thus enabling the rational planning of capital production. The private ownership of the means of production, along with the creative destruction and profits of markets, sets up a more-or-less evolutionary process by which the most successful capitalists survive and continue to invest capital, while the less successful capitalists and failures are weeded out, thus freeing capital to be applied to more valuable enterprises. Thus, the privatization of capital and the means of production are incredibly important components of the incentives that lead directly to rational capital investment.
Th communist says "No, this is all evil because it's exploitative. The laborers are supposed to own everything and decide on all capital investments, more-or-less, not through markets with buying and selling, but with... votes. Or a worker's council. Or something." This is an answer that sounds like an answer, but really isn't an answer. I know what a capitalist does when he strategizes about capital investment. He seeks profit: he explicitly seeks rational deployment of capital. The communist vows to do whatever the worker's want without knowing, as a worker, what they're supposed to want in the first place. Through what process do these fresh new capital investors, new from the revolution, use to determine what should be produced? How much of it? By who and for who? And how do you connect the dots to show that everyone is better off, that these democratic workers were able to invest capital so much better than capitalists that they could produce the utopia on earth that they promise?
It's magical thinking: "just let the workers vote away profit, keep it for themselves, and they'll all have more!" That' a bigger assumption than "just get rid of profit." It's also nationalizing and/or confiscating all capital investment and moving it from one group of people to another. The first group obtained their capital through an evolutionary process that correlates with rational investment. The latter group obtained their capital by confiscating it from the first group. Do you really expect nothing to change except getting rid of profit and keeping more?
This is the philosophy of children who think they can kill their parents and imagine that everything will be better because they can do whatever they want. Yeah, sure, you just got rid of the only adults in the house, the only people capable of long-term, rational, mature decision making. I'm sure the money will all just keep rolling in, somehow.
And this is why communist revolutions always look good at first, but then, over time, crumble and fall. Communists are much better at confiscation and revolution than they are at capital investment. Once the capitalists are gone, there's no one else to confiscate and redistribute, and then what? Build something? Solve the economic calculation problem? Good luck.
And that's why they produce economic basket cases every time they try it. It's why the Venezuelan "Socialist miracle!" isn't a miracle anymore. It's why the USSR collapsed, why Cuba sucks, why North Korea sucks, and why communists, for all their talk, can't produce a country anyone wants to live in no matter how hard they try. It's the simple fact that profit is actually a good thing. It's not exploitation. It's an evolutionary process by which we deploy capital in rational way that leads the the most material success the world has ever seen.
But they'll never see it. Because the Labor Theory of Value says that, no matter how well it works, it's exploitation, so it must be good to get rid of it and try something else. And they will try again. And fail again. Because they can never learn.
Good luck.

2023.05.31 05:05 Carbon_robin A problem with my dog acting towards people.

So a few years ago my dog loved people but now he doesn’t. He gets really aggressive since the neighbor’s kids started throwing rocks at him and it traumatized my dog I wanted to know how to make him feel better about people but most importantly kids (he gets aggravated since he doesn’t trust them anymore). Could anyone tell me what I can do?

Ok so mostly I haven’t had problems with online battles for the most part HOWEVER, my problem stems from those REALLY cocky players who think just because the have won 2 or 3 matches they are the best thing to grace xenoverse since it’s creation. Anyway not really anything important just something I’ve noticed.

2023.05.31 05:05 SeaworthinessOwn7354 Moving to DC & I'm scared & I don't know what to do!!

This is my first post ever excuse my etiquette.
I'm moving to DC area in mid August for my first ever job at Deloitte in Arlington!!! I'm from Gaithersburg, so I can tour or visit lots of areas easily. My problem is there's so much different packed into one commutable area (part of what makes the DMV so awesome, but really overwhelming when finding somewhere to live).
Here's the kind of apartment I'm looking for:
Budget is $2100 max if I live in VA (not including parking or utilities) and $2000 for DC (I can sign a 12-15 month lease)
I'd like a short short commute, whatever that means. If I take the metro 20-35 min and driving 5-10.
I'm 22, haven't mourned leaving college yet, and don't know anyone. I want to live somewhere fun, or somewhere easy to get somewhere fun.
I would LOVE to live on the water (will sacrifice some commute, some fun, and some budget) for like the perfect area right on any body of water with lots of walkable fun and great views.
This is super new and transitional for me and honestly I want to stay in a 'bubble' per say with young people, a safe and close town, and really good fun energy. I know a lot of this is subjective but I'm just really here to collect as much info as I can. I'd love to hear specific buildings or areas or anything I should consider.
Thank you all!! I love the DMV and can't wait to move <<33

2023.05.31 05:05 Suspicious_Dealer815 Hopeful for the direction we seem to be going

So I’ve been with my PA for around 7 months now, after my relationship with my ex (in denial) PA.
Now, he knew from the very beginning that I do NOT want to be with someone who watches porn, nor will I accept/tolerate it in a relationship. He knew it was grounds for breakup.
Around 2-3 months in, I’d asked something about his patreon account. He said it was just YouTubers he subscribed to. I thought “oh okay, reasonable”. But, guys and gals, I have severe bpd, and that has made my intuition unmistakably accurate.
So, I sit on this for a week (I see him on weekends), and something just doesn’t seem right. It feels wrong. So, the next weekend, I ask him about it again. He says the same thing. So I asked if he would show me, he hesitates and says no. I ask why. He sits in silence for what feels like an eternity, but was probably only a minute or two. Without him even saying it, I knew.
He gets up, starts packing his things, i ask where he’s going, he said “well the relationship’s over”, and again, I ask why. He says “you already know why”. I say okay, and sit back to watch him leave. He asks if there’s anything else I wanted to say, and I simply responded, “don’t forget your drill”. He leaves, I don’t cry, I don’t yell.
He drives off, then texts me saying “I need to come back”, I ask why, he says “I need to show you something”. Meanwhile I say “what could you possibly show me at this point?”. So after a few minutes, I let him back in, and he tells me to download remojo. I asked how he’d found an app so quickly, he said he’s had to use it before.
I was so mad that he knew he’d had a problem, and he knew how I felt about it. He’d been lying and hiding it this whole time. He also had a couple of hiccups with emotional cheating that never turned physical around January.
Well, I’m here to say that while it still hurts, makes me angry, my trust is broken, we are trying to work through it.
He understands the damage he’s done, he has these deep discussions with me, he has now two accountability apps, that he lets me control. He hasn’t made a fuss about the open device policy. He’s seeking out a CSAT because I’d mentioned it in passing. He tries to hide his frustration, because I know I can be sometimes. But, I’m thankful that He admitted his problem, and that he cares enough about me and this relationship to do something about it.
I find myself less suspicious, and checking his devices less and less. It’s been hard, it’s still hard, but I have hope. I don’t know how things will turn out, but I just wanted to share. Thank you for reading.

2023.05.31 05:05 HomeschoolersSuck Is it bad of my mom to yell at me for not dressing properly?

I sometimes don't pay attention. I have autism and probably ADHD (I was diagnosed with ADHD too but she called the doctor wrong lol). One big problem with this is that I don't pay attention to my clothes. When I'm ready to leave the house to go with her to the store or whatever I often get yelled at and told I look insane because my socks are over my pants or my shirt is tucked into them or my pants are a bit crooked. She yells at me about it but doesn't even really say what's wrong so when I go to fix what I think it is she yells at me even more. Is this reasonable? She's done so many things I know are wrong but some things like this that I think might just be normal. I'm not sure, maybe I'm just overreacting like her and being a brat like she's said. Or, maybe this actually wrong of her to yell at me for like a large portion of her behavior is.

2023.05.31 05:05 hairanon22 I (25f) don't know is it's time to move on with my life from my (30m) boyfriend

I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years now, living together for two.
Our relationship and my feelings in it have changed so drastically over time, and sometimes fluctuates quickly. We fell for eachother quickly, and my first feelings were that we had a connection like I'd had with no one else. In many ways that is still true.
Then we moved in together, and things got really challenging. We had alot of big fights and had to confront some serious issues. But I stuck it out, because moving in with someone is never easy and there is bound to be issues. We both grew and changed alot over the next year. Things weren't instant and there were more fights over what he had promised, and didn't follow through on, but they were much less frequent. This last year of our relationship was feeling so secure! We both improved in the areas we needed, and we hardly had any issues. That was up until two weeks ago.
We had another fight, it wasn't the worst, but his actions really shook me. It was like I was looking at someone I didn't know. I don't know if he was acting differently than he had in other arguments, or if I was finally seeing more clearly.
First off, as soon as I brought up having an issue (calmly) he told me I should pack my bags and leave then. This was just insane to me. Yes in big fights before we've had the "well should we just end things?" talk. But that was years ago, and only when we had seriously had it out. We've been together almost three years, I have an issue and you're telling me to pack my shit?
And I know he doesn't mean it. He doesn't actually want me to leave when he says that (and he tells me that later as if I didn't know) But that's just so immature and I thought we were past that kind of shit. I mean he's 30 not 20.
That and the manipulation and gaslighting he tries to pull anytime I have an issue. And no I'm not a dumbass who just uses those words to mean anything. He truly thinks he can manipulate me into thinking I'm the crazy one, no matter how clear cut and dry it is to see that he fucked up. I mean he nearly crashed my car with a my friends in it, and I'm crazy for being angry! (Old story)
Anyway, he does his usual circular talking, gaslighting, turning it back on me shit for 30 minutes, I get tired of it cause at this point I can see right through him, and I go inside and get ready for bed. I'm reading, he's sulking (aka waiting for me to initiate a conversation and make it all better) but I'm not falling for it this time. We sit in silence for an hour before he finally asks to talk. I agree to talk. We continue to sit in silence. At some point he realizes he'll have to start the talking, as I'm not going to. We do proceed to talk things out as usual. All the good things happen. He admits he was wrong in the first place, the way he talked to me was uncalled for, etc. And that's when I usually feel vindication and relief and kiss him and go to bed happy. And so I pretended to.
But in reality I still felt cold. Cold that this happened again. That I could write a manual on our fights at this point. It's the same thing every. Single. Time. Less fighting now, wayyyy less, but when it happens they are still the same.
I hate to say it, but I think I have the ick. It's an immature way to describe this, but it's accurate to how I feel. I think I just lost respect for him. He's 30, dating someone 6 years younger, still can't own up to mistakes, still can't make a real apology, still thinks his lies and manipulative little song and dance isn't anything but utterly transparent.
So why don't I leave him? I don't know. Sunk cost, sure. It's not for lack of self esteem; I'm young, hot, and intelligent, I know I can find someone else.
But I still love him I think? I've never heard a great definition of love. You hear so much of "it takes patience, you have to learn together", it's hard to know if you're potentially throwing away real love for some ideal fantasy that doesn't exist. Or are you staying with someone that objectively is no good for you, and will never change?
Our day to day is pretty great. We make eachother laugh, and take care of eachother, we do everything together really. 95% of the time things are wonderful. But is that enough?
Tldr; our relationship is wonderful outside of our occasional fights. When we do fight my boyfriend has no problem disrespecting, demeaning, negging, and manipulating, to get out of taking any accountability. He will apologize later, but I feel like his comments are starting to do lasting damage that can't be taken back with I'm sorry. Can this be fixed with counseling, Is it worth it to Stay?
