  1. You make a great point about the limitations of our knowledge. Humility is key. Foundational to one's world view is the question how the government should proceed in a low-information scenario. I default towards individual freedom, a lot of people don't, or they overstate the certainty of their position to seize moral authority they really shouldn't. FWIW, Im vaccinated, but I don't support making it mandatory right now.
  2. There is a significant difference between this statement and the witch-hunt you have supported. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motte-and-bailey_fallacy Congratulations on APZ!
  3. Would you mind expanding on your perspective here? What did you see behind the curtain? I appreciate your insight, feel free to PM.
  4. Yep, and it requires little-to-no additional training for airdrop qualified crews. I can see very little reason not to have this as a hip-pocket cape.
  5. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jun/01/wuhan-coronavirus-lab-leak-covid-virus-origins-china "Because if the hypothesis is right, it will soon start to dawn on people that our mistake was not insufficient reverence for scientists, or inadequate respect for expertise, or not enough censorship on Facebook. It was a failure to think critically about all of the above, to understand that there is no such thing as absolute expertise."
  6. It's posted in the Woke thread, but it is just as appropriate here... and the ACIP thread.
  7. https://www.military.com/daily-news/2021/05/15/space-force-co-who-got-holiday-call-trump-fired-over-comments-decrying-marxism-military.html
  8. Agree, in general, CRT and the like are inconsistent, self-contradictory, and destructive... so I wont waste enegry trying to steel-man them.
  9. This struck me as a funny viewing of the SJW type. I'd venture most champion different scoring criteria for the identities other than white male.
  10. Yep, and its difficult for people to really know where they are on the curve. I don’t think anyone has ever done more to amplify my generally skeptical attitude on any topic more than SoH’s emotive postings.... So much so that I’m skeptical of his authenticity.
  11. I did Brandman’s MAOL program and think it was solid. It will cost you some out of pocket and each class is a bit more challenging than other min-run options, but the 15 hrs credit is great. Good quality education IMO.
  12. You just described racial profiling. To be clear, are you condoning this?
  13. Unproven theory that large-scale, statistically signifcant, imprecise characterisations occur, yes. No conspiracy required. Systems do not require conscious coordination with ill intent to deliver poor results. They are often way more complicated than our monkey brains give them credit for. Unintended consequences and all. Sure, I acknowledge that pandemics are a particularly difficult situation for societies that value liberty. Which is a good point to emphasize, and often a root issue in disagreements: how highly do each of us value liberty vs security?
  14. Not really, I recommend you read up on the concept of Systems Thinking... ...Could not be more wrong; how people died/are harmed, whether directly from the disease or our reaction to it, makes all the difference when it comes to decision making and the effects of the disease.
