  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Marx wasn't wrong per se, it's just that the act of publishing his theories changed the world he was trying to theorise about. Employers aren't idiots and can read as well as the next person - if you tell them...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    In the spirit of predictions, isn't greater surveillance where we're all headed anyway? It's wise to be concerned/cautious about the trend, and it does sometimes feel odd to live in one of the most surveilled countries in the world. But...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Calling the named person bill fascist is really going a bit far. Even the courts admitted the aim of the legislation was "unquestionably legitimate and benign" and that the problem was that some of the provisions for information sharing (but...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    As of this evening, CPS is apparently considering prosecution against 'over 30' individuals, and any charges will have to be brought against them before the general election, presumably while they're campaigning. If those individuals are in fact running for reelection...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    Somewhat pedantically, Leave won by a ~3% margin, whereas Clinton lost despite winning 2% more votes than Trump. To make a more accurate comparison: if Leave had won by the same number of votes, but failed to carry the referendum...
  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    I'm very worried about potentially increasing apathy among the electorate, especially the Remainers. Being based in Edinburgh, my colleagues aren't exactly representative of Britain as a whole, but a lot seem really tired of referendums, elections, and voting in general....
  • Commented on Random excuses
    My "favourite" part of the recent LJ debacle is the part at the end of the ToS that basically says the English translation is in no way binding, and if you *really* want to find out what you've signed up...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Do they actually, though? Or is more that we're used to/inured to the mistreatment by familiar cultures/religions, and ones we're unfamiliar with look worse because the alien-ness exacerbates the differences? [Regarding mansplaining, I would think anyone can fall into that...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Yeah, Ireland annexing Scotland gives me the heebie jeebies. I grew up in two increasingly anti-abortion (and generally anti-human rights) countries, and the thought of being unwillingly forced to reside in a third is utterly terrifying. Being of child-bearing age...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    (First time commenter - apologies if I step on any toes!) I think what worries me the most about your scenario is that we don't even have to assume that the administration's actions so far are deliberate and planned. I...
