2023.05.31 03:04 howsweetfreshmeat Season 1 Re-watch Notes! Anything to add? Let's talk about it

I spent the past week re-watching S1 and I wanted to share my insights. I didn't include any repeatedly discussed theories (Ex. Antlers behind someone, clues that someone might die such as Jackie saying she's cold, etc.) But I do apologize if there are any repeat theories here. If you remember a post you made with a correct theory pleaseeee link it!

Spoilers for Season 2 are included here.

Pilot- (The start to my obsession) Not much in this episode that hasn't been mentioned by our awesome sub.
Jackie inadvertently caused two main issues.

F Sharp

The Dollhouse

Bear down-

Blood Hive


No Compass-

Flight of the Bumblebee

I'm not on board with "they were dead the whole time," theory but if you are, there are a couple of comments in this episode that might sway me-

Sic Transit Gloria Mundi
Aaaaand that's all I got! Thanks for reading if you did. A re-watch of Season 1 was a blast and I can't wait until season 3. I hope this post is as interesting to you as it was for me to make over the last few days! buzz buzz buzz.
TLDR: there is none I'm sorry. ;)

2023.05.31 01:48 HatanaMarketing Unveiling AC-262: A Deep Dive into the 2016 Study and Its Implications SWISS CHEMS COUPON CODE code CHEMSEX10
Hello SwissChems community,
Today, we're going to delve into the world of Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs), focusing on AC-262, a non-steroidal SARM that has been making waves in the research community. We'll also discuss a significant 2016 study that explored its potential effects.

What is AC-262?

AC-262, also known as Accadrine, is a SARM that functions by linking to androgen receptors in the body, thereby inducing anabolic effects. It's a potent compound with a chemical formula of C18H18N20 and a molecular mass of 278.3. AC-262 is available in a 600mg/60 capsules (10mg/capsule) format, making it convenient for research purposes.

The 2016 Study

A study published in the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2016 shed light on the potential effects of AC-262. The study found that AC-262 increased muscle mass and strength in castrated male rats. Additionally, it was observed to enhance bone density and fat mass in female rats. These findings have sparked interest in the research community, leading to further exploration of AC-262's potential applications.

Quality Assurance

At SwissChems, we prioritize quality and transparency. All our products, including AC-262, are lab-tested, and the results are occasionally published on our website. We offer a quality guarantee: if the product you bought from us tests negative at any HPLC-licensed testing facility, we will refund the cost of the HPLC test, the total amount of the order, and the shipping fee.


The 2016 study on AC-262 has opened up new avenues for research into this potent SARM. As we continue to explore its potential, it's crucial to remember that all our products, including AC-262, are for research purposes ONLY. They are not intended for personal use.

2023.05.31 00:40 HSeldon2020 $2,500 Challenge (which is now a $1,300 Challenge) -

I've been told many times how much people miss the "Challenges".
In the past I have made $100K in 100 Trades, doubled a $30K account in 6 weeks, doubled a $5K account in a week, etc. Great Challenges and good times were had by all.
As always, every trade was posted in real-time, entries and exits, with position sizes. I also put the TraderSync Journal live for the Challenge - which contained not only the trades, but also the set-ups and notes on each.
These challenges are not only a great educational resource for people, but they provided the much needed "proof of concept" for all the skeptics out there. Even though I am posting trades live every day, there is always the, "Yeah, but can you do that with a smaller balance?" and "Can it be done under PDT rules?", etc. To which I want to say, "I am the goddamn Lizard King, I am can do anything!", but I don't....need to keep that arrogance in check an all.
The problem to be honest is that the Challenges are an absolute pain-in-the-ass. They not only represent a third account I would be trading, but each night the journal needs to be updated, notes put in, constant questions answered, etc. It is enough to drive someone to a rusty spoon and a dirty needle. And if you are thinking, "Wow, that is a pretty low bar to turn someone into a heroin addict!" You would be right.
However, a compromise occurred to me - a low balance challenge would not require too much effort (at least not at first) as there could only be one or two trades a day! Perfect.
Although doing a low-balance challenge presents a whole other problem. They are really fucking hard.
You can try to build it quickly, but then your margin for error is pretty much zero.
Or you can build it slowly, but not many people want to see an account that grows by $25-$50 a day. Oh, I am sure there will be comments of people saying they would love to see that, but trust me, it is boring. Boring as all hell. Like, "Oh wow, he just shorted 15 shares of BURL and made $30 today - $2,530! Yay!"
It should go without saying, that this is not so you can try and directly copy the trades. I am already getting direct messages about what my "stop-loss" and profit targets would be, etc. Oh, I get it, trust me. The whole, "If I just do exactly what he does, and he manages to double the account, so will I!" But it doesn't work that way - it never does. If you want to copy the trades, use Paper trading. Otherwise, this is for you to learn.
I will post entry, exit, position, position size - in real time. Any trade that is for the "Challenge" will be noted as such when I post it (although it will be pretty obvious - trades where I take 200 Contracts are clearly not for a low balance challenge). All trades are posted on Twitter, in the RDT Discord (and thus in the RDT Live Trading Room) and in the OneOption Trading Room.
I will also post the TraderSync journal live, which is right here: now you will see one trade. Trades will be tagged with set-ups and notes.
Why is there one trade in there? Well, when I went to my challenge account and logged in, I thought the balance was $0 and I needed to deposit $2,500. However, I found that the balance as not $0, but rather $1,300. So, instead of depositing the money, which takes time to clear the bank, I decide to buy 1 Put on NVDA (set-up explained in the journal). Currently that position is up roughly $700, and given the after-hours price action, it should be close to $1,200 in profit by tomorrow.
This will be a margin account - as I want the ability to use Option Spreads. I will not be scalping shares - as the goal here is to show a method that is repeatable.
First profit goal is - Double the Account.
And away we go....

2023.05.31 00:04 Grand_Historian986 I am lost. I need your help. What do I do with my life and money.

Hello fellow Redditors,
I could really use your advice and insights on my career situation, as well as my desire to escape the cold and find a sense of fulfillment. I'm a 24-year-old with a bachelor's degree in economics and political science, currently struggling to find a job in Montreal. The challenging job market has left me feeling disheartened, and I'm contemplating whether pursuing a master's degree is the right choice to secure a stable income for my future.
However, there's another factor adding to my uncertainty: the cold and dreary weather in Montreal. I find myself longing for a change of scenery and yearning for lots of sunshine on my face. Living in a hot country has become an enticing dream, but I understand that going back to college and doing it in Montreal might be the more financially viable option in the short term (I am Canadian). Nonetheless, staying in Montreal, where the winters can be long and gloomy, is taking a toll on my overall happiness.
At the moment, what I really crave is a change of scenery and lots of sunshine on my face. I dream of living in a hot country, but I'm aware that going back to college might be more financially viable if that's the case. Staying in Montreal seems like the logical choice since it would make college more affordable. However, I've spent the past four years cooped up in my room, and I'm tired of this stagnant routine. I graduated at the start of covid. Since then worked two years remotely and now I am lost.
Considering my situation, I have a couple of questions for you all: What job prospects exist for someone with a degree in economics and political science, and would it be advisable to explore a career switch, perhaps in fields like sales or journalism? I'm open to any suggestions or insights you may have regarding potential career paths that align with my degree.
Furthermore, I'm at a crossroads in my life, not only in terms of my career but also in terms of my desire to escape the cold. I wonder if it's worth considering a change of location and taking the opportunity to travel the world. However, I must acknowledge that I only have $36,000 CAD, which isn't a substantial amount, at least for travel or moving to another country (I might be wrong)I need to know how to spend that money.
My deepest desire is to find a job and a reliable source of income, ideally a remote position that would grant me the freedom to travel and experience the warmth I crave. I haven't lived since covid. Never really left my room. Covid killed me, I am tired, lost. I know I dont want to live in Canada anymore. For me it's my time to move to another country. How ? I can't get a job in Canada, how on earth am I going to get a job somewhere else. What can I even do with a degree in economics and political science.
I sincerely appreciate any advice, personal experiences, or insights you can provide. I'm feeling lost, both in terms of my career and my current environment, and could really use your guidance to find my direction and regain a sense of purpose in life.
I know having 36k saved is a lot for some people at 24. But I need your advice on how to spend it. not for the sake of spending it. How can I use that money to make a good decision about my life.
Deep down I want to travel. An opportunity might happen to me. One way ticket or round trip? Do I come back and take a break in a foreign country. I might miss the routine? Did you ever do something like this.
Sorry if this is long. I am tired. I feel like I am not living but existing + social media is killing me. I will be contact my university career consultant and see what I can do. The cold killed me. Where do I go.
Thank you all for your support and assistance.

We still want to provide some guidance and resources to at least peruse in the meantime. Also, don’t forget about the search bar, you may find what you need! Though your questions may be answered by a medical professional, no one here is your doctor. The advice here is largely based on our own experiences and knowledge. If think you might have kidney disease, or are trying to help somebody with symptoms, please start here. These are the questions we seem to hear a lot on this subreddit. If you have a question that isn't covered here, by all means please post in the subreddit. We have many here who have a wide range of experiences from Alport Syndrome to Polycystic Kidney Disease, from Stage 1 to Stage 5, from transplant to kidney failure to transplant again, and can probably at least point you in the right direction.
Additionally, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the rules. The vast majority of people in this subreddit have kidney disease and are dealing with their various diagnoses. Keep that in mind before clicking post on your image showing a full panel of in-range lab results, etc.


Can kidney disease be cured?

  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD) cannot be cured, but early diagnosis and treatment can help manage symptoms and slow the worsening of the disease.

What can I do?

  • You can slow down damage by keeping your blood pressure, blood sugar, sodium, protein, phosphorus, and potassium levels under control. A lot of people claim to have success by transitioning to a plant based diet. If you smoke, it’s important to quit. It’s also important to get regular exercise and maintain a healthy weight.

How is kidney disease diagnosed?

  • A blood test measures how well your kidneys are filtering your blood and is used to calculate your estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).
  • A urine test shows if your kidneys are leaking protein (albumin) into your urine, which may mean kidney damage, and is used to calculate your urine albumin to creatinine ratio (uACR).
  • Ultrasound, MRI or CT scans can be used to see what the kidneys look like and check whether there are any blockages.
  • A kidney biopsy removes a small sample of kidney tissue and the cells are examined for signs of damage.
  • It gets more specific, this is just an ELI5 overview for an FAQ.

What are the stages of kidney disease?

  • Stage 1 – a normal eGFR above 90ml/min, but other tests have detected signs of kidney damage
  • Stage 2 – a slightly reduced eGFR of 60 to 89ml/min, with other signs of kidney damage
  • Stage 3 - (a) an eGFR of 45 to 59ml/min (b) an eGFR of 30 to 44ml/min
  • Stage 4 – an eGFR of 15 to 29ml/min
  • Stage 5 – an eGFR below 15ml/min

I have foamy urine, do I have kidney disease?

  • If your urine looks foamy, it could be due to urine velocity stirring up the water, chemicals in the water, or health conditions affecting the bladder or kidneys. Get a urinalysis done.

Will posting picture of my urine help determine if I have kidney disease?

  • No.

There are a lot of restrictions with kidney disease, what exactly can I eat?

  • Look up renal diet basics to get an idea of what foods need to be avoided or limited. It is always recommended to get a referral for a renal dietician to assist with designing meal plans that take into account your specific dietary needs, whether it’s protein reduction or potassium reduction. You can take most meals and modify the ingredients to meet your dietary needs.

All my labs are in range but my back hurts, do I have kidney disease?

  • We wouldn’t know. You should see your doctor if you are concerned about body pains. Many people here have stated they didn’t experience physical pain due to kidney disease. It's more likely that your discomfort is due to muscle spasm or strain or a spine-related problem.

Should i do hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis? And at home, or in a clinic?

  • There are a lot of factors here, and your nephrologist and dialysis clinic will be able to assist with deciding what is best for you. Here, here, and here are some discussions on the various merits and hangups of each option.

2023.05.30 22:44 megispj89 100s of Applications, No Interviews. Is It My Resume? Customer Service/Marketing Jobs

I've never had this hard of a time breaking through and getting a job. I've run my own business for 3 years and have even written resumes for some of my friends who have been successful getting jobs in their industry.
Marketing/copywriting wasn't panning out, so I've been applying to customer service roles to try and get a job (I'm in a bad situation and starting to get desperate.)
Focus on remote/wfh because I'd like to move once I get a stable role.
Thank you for your help!

2023.05.30 22:21 __SinglePlayer__ I am about to finish my Bachelor in Computer Science and need your advice about where to go from here?

I will try to keep this short enough and yet provide all the information needed. Firstly, some basic information about me - I am 23 years old and live in Croatia (Europe). Currently, I am on my last year of undergraduate studies for Computer Science. Since I am about to finish my studies in 2 weeks, I will be at the point where I can finally decide "what next", since this step of my life will be over.
I will provide all kind of different and seemingly disconnected information in this post, just in order to present my character as accurate as possible.
There are things I do like, things I do not like, and things I hate about my current path. Firstly, I love to code - but I hate things such as web development. Instead, I like algorithms, AI, statistics, things that make me think and solve the problems. I love math as well. I also like physics, enjoyed it a lot in high school, but ended up in software industry due to better job opportunities.
If we talk about things related to coding/software, I seem to find interest in things related to data. It just amazes me that data is everywhere, like in every machine, in speech, on the Internet, and all that data can be very useful if used correctly. I like to read and learn about how to store data, how to extract meaningful information, how to use and process that data and so on. Well, since this is the case - I had this idea of having a Master in Data Science - and so far this seems to be the most probable choice, since it is the "most realistic one".
If we talk about other things related to computers, I think cybersecurity is interesting (but am scared that actual work in the industry is far different and more boring than in the movies). I also like to read about neuroscience & psychology (I know this is kind of unrelated). As for Data Science - there are two options: stay in Croatia or move to Vienna - this is something I believe to be a good opportunity - it is Uni that is not hard to get in, has okay reputation (not good not terrible), city is nice, courses seem to be flexible, there are a lot of students and young people in general & I love Austrian culture. So yeah, seems fine! Salary should be good as well once I graduate.
If I talk about my long term job sometimes in the future, here is the thing that bothers me. I would HATE to work in a place where I can not be creative, learn and generally move forward, and just work my thing alone for 8 hours a day sitting on a chair and looking at the screen. Hell no. I want something more adventurous, something where I can be creative, create new things, do the research and so on.
What I would absolutely LOVE one day (the sooner the better) is to have my own company. I just have no idea where to start. The reason I want this is not financial - at least not in the first place. I am aware that I need to take care of finances to make things work and also to have some money to pay the bills, but I really want more than that. The reason why I would like to have a company is not to "become a billionaire", but instead to build something from scratch, to help others, to develop, to hire people, to learn, to grow, and to do something great for humanity. For example, if I could get into gambling industry, I would probably deny that - since I do not believe this is very helpful to society. I also like to play with numbers, so probably thinking about business strategies would make me very happy.
Also, I am fully aware that creating a company is not just "fun" and "easy money", but really about hard work, putting in the time and effort and comiting long term to it. But to me, it seems like much more enjoyable journey than working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week job.
If you asked me about any specific industry I would love to work in, I am not sure. However, there is one particular "general idea" (note, just an idea, I have no business plan and this is something I should think about if I decide to make this happen) is to have a platform/company that is related to "investigative journalism".Why?
Reason #1: I love the thrill, I always get a rush of adrenaline when thinking about something dangerous. It is almost as it makes me feel alive. Discovering affairs, getting insider information and so on, you get the point...
Reason #2: Data. Did I say I like data? Yes. Well isn't big part of journalism about data? I would like to work with it.
Reason #3: Transparency. I feel like information people get is very limited. People go out and vote. They decide to support one side or another politically. They go to wars. Lose lives. And I feel like all those people deserve to know more about what is going on, about things that might not be available to the public right now. (this is "helping the humanity part")
Reason #4: Art. I love creativity. I like, for example, photography, videography, and editing. I love how free you are to express yourself on various topics, how you can create something amazing and send a message in this way.
Reason #5: I do believe that there are no high quality media houses in this part of the world. There are many journalists who write about bullshit topics or just never go in depth with the research. It is about quantity and not quality, and I do want to have different business strategy. Also, I do think that this part of the world (south-east Europe is politically very interesting, and yet it lacks media coverage, everything is very biased and researched only on the surface levels)
Cons #1: I know nothing about journalism.
Cons #2: I have no idea where to start.
Cons #3: I have no money to invest. But I have the time and desire.
About some other hobbies, I like to travel, to read, I love motorsport sport, spending time in nature, watching documentaries, hiking, gym, art, philosophy, politics, reading about investigations/crimes, martial arts, and more. I am just mentioning this for no reason other to just not forget about those. I am aware that career can not be related to everything.Where do I go from here?
So far, I feel like I'd be best to go to that DS Master, work part time to make a living, and in free time work on my company and do my best to make things work. When I happen to have some extra time, I will enjoy my other hobbies, friends and so on, but this will not be career related.This way, if the company fails, I will still have a degree and be able to find a decent job. If it succeed, I will be the happiest person alive.

Edit: I also find joy in things like micro mechanics, like watches, and similar. But whatever, this is more of a small interest of mine than something I would make a career of.

2023.05.30 21:11 Smart_Curve_5784 Interview with Aushra Augustinavichiute and Aleksandr Bukalov

By Meged V.V., 1997
The great science of the future - the science of society harmonisation was created by a woman!
The name of this outstanding woman is Aushra Augustinavichiute. She has turned 70 this year and lives in Vilnius. Despite the fact that it is not customary for us to give people their due while they are still alive, Aushra was a pleasant exception to this sad rule. Glory came to her in the 80s after the publication of her first works, and has not left her. Her name has firmly entered the history of mankind, since this woman opened a new era in the development of human sciences, raised psychology, sociology, pedagogy, and a number of other sciences about man and society to a higher level.
A. Augustinavichiute laid the foundations of socionics - the science of the mechanisms of the psyche, which made it possible to determine the abilities of people with different types of personality, their strengths and weaknesses, characteristics of character and behaviour, social roles, as well as to model and predict the nature of relationships between people, determine the degree of their compatibility.
All this became possible thanks to the unique discovery of Aushra - a model of information exchange between a person and the environment. For the first time in the history of mankind, a theory was created that made it possible to reduce all sciences about man to a single coherent system of laws, which means opening up new opportunities for predicting the development of every child, every young couple, and... even every state!
A. Augustinavichiute visited Kyiv in September of this year in connection with the invitation of the International Institute of Socionics, which held its 19th conference. Here she was surrounded by the attention and love of her students and followers from different cities of the CIS. Among them is myself, who joined the ranks of socionics in 1988, a year after the creation of the first Socionics Club in Kiev - a public organisation created by enthusiastic volunteers who studied socionics and continue its further development.
The first impetus to the development of socionics was given by its creator Aushra in 1985. She read a course of lectures in Kyiv and immediately acquired her loyal followers here. Thus, Kyiv became the centre of the further development of socionics - this powerful passionary movement, which had no historical analogues in the development of other sciences, in which people of all professions take part to this day.
In 1991, the International Institute of Socionics was established in Kyiv. IIS, headed by A.V. Bukalov. He began to publish regularly the international socionics journal "Socionics, Mentology, and Psychology of Personality", in which an avalanche of the most interesting articles on socionics still does not stop, and to hold international conferences.
During the break, I (V.M. (t/n: Valentina Meged)) asked Aushra Augustinavichiute and Aleksandr Valentinovich Bukalov a few questions:
V.M. Aushra, please tell me why among the most active socionists there are still fewer women than men? Is this due to the inherent mediocrity attributed to them by misogynists, or elements of discrimination on the part of men who are at the head of this movement and suppress women's intellectual initiative?
A.A. I think that women themselves are to blame for this, because so far they have not freed themselves from the stupid role that their nature has imposed on them: to be, first of all, a wife and mother, despite their abilities being equal to those of men.
V.M. What is the fault of women then, since nature created them that way?
A.A. The fact that they are lazy and do not want to fight for their right to be free to choose: to give birth or not to give birth to children, to get married or not.
V.M. But why don't women assert their independence in making important life decisions?
A.A. Women are too afraid to cause misunderstanding and condemnation in their loved ones and those around them, therefore they tend to follow the template - like everyone else, so as not to stand out and defy conventions, although not all of them have a developed maternal instinct and not everyone can find their happiness in giving birth and raising children and taking care of their husband instead of running the state or driving scientific and cultural progress. Therefore, women will be able to raise their authority in society simply by reducing the birth rate.
V.M. What will happen to humanity if women refuse this nature-given role?
A.A. The problem lies in the fact that women give birth more than there is a natural need for it. If not all women give birth, there will be less humanity, but it will be of better quality, and it will be able to better think over and organise a fair and harmonious existence. Moreover, in this case, more smart talented women will come to power, and the female mind is initially, by nature itself, arranged in such a way as to think about harmony, peace, and creation more than about the victory of one's own ambitions at any cost.
V.M. It is hard to disagree with you, because a vivid example of such a female mind is yourself, a woman who created a science for harmonising society. Do you think socionics will benefit from the fact that it will continue to be developed mainly by men?
A.A. Of course not. What I said about society as a whole applies to socionics as well. It is a woman who can adapt socionics for real practical service to people, despite the fact that men also make a significant contribution to the development of the theory.
V.M. Does this mean that women need to fight more actively for equality and independence?
A.A. Many women simply do not listen to their own voice of reason and don't follow their true calling, as most men do. They need to fight not with men for equality, but with themselves in order to allow themselves this equality.
V.M. What is needed in order to activate women to fight the stereotypes of society and their ideas about women's role?
A.A. I think that the blame lies with the lack of demand for women's thinking in society. A woman is forgiven for any stupidity. It is not right. Women should be shamed for their stupidity and passivity. No need to spare their pride, otherwise they will not want to change. When it becomes humiliating to be a stupid and undeveloped woman, then women will begin to really fight for the state to provide them with opportunities for a creative and socially active life.
V.M. Do you think that women should fight for equality not with men, but with state power?
A.A. Well, of course! Individual men alone do not decide anything. Now there are enough men who respect and appreciate smart and talented women, but this does not change anything for all women in general.
V.M. And what can change the fate of all our women who are overburdened with family and housekeeping? After all, many of them really want to develop, but for this they have neither the time nor the conditions?
A.A. Only the concern of the state to unburden women can change their fate, just as it is done in developed countries. It is necessary to create a developed network of cheap washing machines, provide stores with ready-made, tasty, and healthy foodstuffs, improve the quality of service for children in nurseries, kindergartens, and schools, and so on. But for this, women themselves must come to power and take care of the effective solution of such issues.
V.M. Is it possible to think about improving the quality of service during such a severe economic crisis?
A.A. It is possible, and it is necessary. So far, of course, only women who are well-off can afford such a service, but if the social morality, formed by everyone else, forces them to develop and be socially active, that is, to be smart and active, and not stupid dependants, they will be able to free themselves and come to governance of the country on an equal footing with poor, but free from family ties, women. And then there will be someone to lead the country out of the crisis into which it was brought by men's ambitions.
V.M. It seems that you do not have a very high opinion of men. Is that so?
A.A. I really appreciate and respect smart and, especially, wise men. But they, like women, are very few. This is the cause of all unhappiness. People need to develop their intellect, but it is easier for men to do this, since they are not burdened with the childbearing function and conventions that place the main burden of housekeeping on women. Therefore, women need to fight for equal opportunities for general development and social activities. But, not all women need to do this, but only those who have the intellectual abilities for it.
V.M. Why do you think that men brought the country to a crisis?
A.A. Because there should be an equal proportion of men and women in the government for constructive decisions. Men are more destructive in nature, as they represent the warlike forces of Yang nature. There must be a balance of Yin and Yang forces, then it will be a wise government. Of course, provided that the people nominated for public office will be tested with intelligence tests.
In addition, it is important what sociotype will occupy a particular public post. If it is possible to select candidates according to socionic criteria, only then will there be effective governance of the country, a way out of the crisis, and the development of a truly democratic and harmonious society, in which at the first place there will be not a struggle of ideas and ideologies, but real concern for people.
V.M. What sociotype can lead the country out of the crisis now?
A.A. According to the theory of socionics, a group of sociotypes - Reformers (t/n: Gamma) - is now fulfilling its social mission in society. It transfers the social evolutionary order to the group of Perfecters (t/n: Delta), in particular to the sociotype which is called the Administrator (t/n: LSE). It is an honest, strong-willed, and fair person, with clear logical thinking and administrative and economic abilities. But right now there are many sociotypes of the Implementers group (t/n: Beta) in the government. Therefore, the sociotype of this group which is called the Leader (t/n: SLE) is more likely to come to power. It is a courageous and flexible person, with good willpower and organisational qualities. This sociotype can handle the crisis, but if it doesn't resign in time, it will begin to rebuild the totalitarian system. Worst of all if theorists come to power, or populists like Zhirinovsky, who are called in socionics - Mentors (t/n: EIE). Their ideology is at the first place for them - a nationalist plan or some other, but business logic (t/n: Te) is too poorly developed, and without it it will be simply impossible to get out of the crisis.
V.M. How would you, if you had the opportunity, organise the further activities of socionics in Kyiv?
A.A. First of all, I would gather the most talented socionists at the Scientific-Research Institute of Socionics, and then I would be confident in the further successful development of socionics and the solution of all issues related to it. People have been working on enthusiasm alone for too long, and they are also forced to fend off the attacks of amateurs and mediocrity, who are, unfortunately, also numerous in socionics. Real specialists in socionics need to be financially provided for and socially protected, thereby creating conditions for their further fruitful work.
V.M. Thank you, Aushra, for the interesting information and for the benefit to humanity that your discovery has brought and will bring even more in the future, rightfully worthy of the Nobel Prize. But, as they say, "there are no prophets in their own country", especially while the prophets are alive. Well, at least people who do not have power and money have understood and appreciated your work and will successfully continue such a necessary work of yours.
V.M. Why does socionics, which in practice turned out to be such a useful and viable science of personality types and relationships between them, still does not have an official scientific status?
A.B. When Aushra made her great discovery, it was so massive that scientists did not know what science to attribute it to - sociology, psychology, computer science, or some other. Therefore, she did not have to defend a dissertation in socionics. Only in 1995, Aushra was awarded a diploma of discovery by the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and was awarded the P.L. Kapitza medal.
Therefore, now we are no longer talking about the recognition of socionics by official scientific circles, but about the registration of its status as a new separate science, integrating many scientific areas. There is every reason for this. First of all, socionics is the science of the information structures of a person and society. Socionics cannot be narrowed down to the level of social psychology, because it allows you to describe not only the processes that happen to a person in society, but also political processes, as well as to model their further development. Of course, socionics complements sociology in the field of studying microgroups. Our Institute of Socionics also cooperates with the Institute of Sociology on a number of programs, but the range of possibilities of socionics goes far beyond the scope of sociology.
V.M. What is necessary for the further development of socionics and what steps do you intend to take in this direction?
A.B. First, the support of the official scientific community is needed, and we already have it. For example, seven doctors of sciences from Ukraine and Russia participate in the editorial board of our international journal "Socionics, Mentology, and Psychology of Personality". These are doctors of sociological, psychological, and pedagogical sciences: Donchenko E.A., Marakhovsky L.F., Saenko G.M., Sagach G.M., Reinin G.M., and three academicians: I.A. Zyazyun, N.N. Obozov, V.V. Novikov - president of the International Academy of Psychology, and others. In Ukraine and Russia, several Ph.D. dissertations in socionics have already been defended.
In Israel, which is considered one of the recognized leaders in information technology, the International Academy of Sciences is being created, and a department of socionics will be created under it. This indicates the recognition of socionics not only in the near, but also in the far abroad.
Secondly, we need a consolidation of efforts of socionists and an active exchange of opinions. For this purpose, we regularly hold international conferences, and since 1995 we have been constantly publishing the journal "Socionics", which has gained authority among teachers, practising psychologists, and personnel management specialists. In addition, more than a dozen books on socionics have already been published, and a two-volume book of Aushra has been published in St. Petersburg, which makes it possible to expand the circle of people interested in socionics and wishing to take part in its further development.
Thirdly, sponsorship of state structures is necessary. Unfortunately, we have not received it yet, so we have a number of difficulties with the creation of a full-fledged research laboratory and its technical equipment.
V.M. At the conference, one of the leaders of the Kyiv school of socionics - Yermak V.D. - expressed an opinion that although “a woman is also a person, she is not able to create anything significant in science, especially if she is a woman of a humanities type”? Do you agree with him?
A.B. Of course not. The creator of socionics is a woman, but it is developed by both men and women, including humanities scholars, who combine abstract-figurative thinking and creativity with a well-developed sphere of feelings, allowing them to penetrate deeply into the spiritual world of a person and into the area of their emotions and relationships with other people.
V.M. The same speaker expressed another opinion that since socionics does not have any specific niche among the sciences, including the humanities, it cannot be developed by humanities scholars, but only natural scientists? Isn't it more logical to assume that a theory that has not been developed to the level of practical application precisely by humanities types of personality may turn out to be simply dead and unviable?
A.B. Socionics combines the natural and humanities sciences. It has its own conceptual apparatus, its own terminology. The humanities, using the apparatus of socionics, can come closer to natural sciences. Therefore, it is impossible to attribute socionics to any one science, for example, the humanities, as well as to delete it from its ranks. This is an integrating science, and it should be developed by people of different professional areas.
V.M. What radical measures are you going to take against socionics chauvinism, does it concern women, humanities people, people with other attitudes, quadra antagonism, etc.?
A.B. Fortunately, cases of any kind of chauvinism are quite rare. Pluralism, accepted in our circles, excludes radicalism, but there are exceptions.
V.M. What trends does the development of socionics currently have, and are they more promising for the development of theory or practical use?
A.B. As the last conference showed, the theory of socionics began to develop more rapidly with the arrival of new forces in it - specialists of various professions, in which they found opportunities for further development with the help of socionics and, at the same time, enriched our science with new approaches. A new direction has been created - synchronism, which deals with the analysis of historical events and studies the laws of history management. As for practice, socionics has already quite firmly penetrated into pedagogy, psychology, and sociology, personnel management. Its principles are used in the process of formation of space crews. Many socionics technologies have been created that have served as a basis for the effective development of the practical application of socionics. This direction is called applied socionics.
V.M. How can socionics be useful to the powerful of this world?
A.B. As Bulgakov said in the words of Woland: "Never ask anything from the powers that be - they will give it themselves." That's why we don't ask. People come to us and ask for advice, and we are happy to help. But if we talk about the benefits of socionics for those who have power and money in their hands, then we can say that socionics, first of all, is indispensable in the management consulting of large enterprises - where it is difficult to work effectively with a large amount of information without carrying out an adequate and rational recruitment.
We also have experience of working with city governments, which will continue to benefit from socionics recommendations, both on effective team building and on other aspects of management.
Socionics allows you to look at socio-political events from an unexpected angle in order to prevent possible failures. So, for example, the ill-conceived appointment of Kiriyenko to the post of prime minister led to a new economic crisis in Russia and Ukraine. This could have been avoided by using the advice of professional socionists and trusting them.
V.M. Thanks for the meaningful conversation. We hope that good luck will accompany socionics, which rightfully deserves it. After all, the 21st century is the century of the information society, in which the main economic problems will surely be solved, and interpersonal problems will begin to be effectively solved, and this is unlikely to be possible without the participation of socionics - the science of society harmonisation created by a woman!

2023.05.30 20:53 TheGringaLoca Dr. Smith patient...never got my 30 day follow-up due to closure. Thought I'd share experience and ask dosage advice.

In April I had my first appt with Dr. Smith. I received the RDT 200mg in the mail about a week later. Instructions were to split pill in half for first 2 doses (so 100mg per dose). Before my session, I made my room very comfortable. I used an oil diffuser, lit a candle, adjusted the lighting, and listened to some mellow music as I prepared. I put on a video of space scenes from youtube and muted the volume. I found a ketamine list on Spotify. Took the dose, and was able to hold for 30 minutes.
I was surprised how little anxiety I had after I took the dose. I was very nervous, and when I tried weed in the past, my anxiety never allowed me to enjoy the experience. And I tried all different indicas from a legal dispensary. While weed helped my physical body relax, my mind was always present.
So, I listened with my headphones and watched the images until it was time to swallow. By then, I was able to put on the eye mask and experience the treatment. I felt extremely at peace, and heard my voice talk to me as a friend would, instead of the normal constant "self-critical" voice. It said, "let her relax." On top of anxiety, ocd, and depression, I'm suffering from extreme care-giver burnout. So hearing that "let her relax" was really needed. I also heard, "let that shit go." Those were the two phrases I pulled out of the session. I felt my jaw unclench and basically let go of my body. I didn't hallucinate or even have memories. It was more just complete relaxation, with some kindness sprinkled in. After, I felt like journaling (which I did).
My second experience was similar. This time I did landscapes on tv. It's weird, with my bose headphones and my weighted eye mask and blanket sometimes I feel like I don't exist. It's kind of jarring, so sometimes I have to remind myself I'm safe and will flip up the mask just to show myself I'm in my room. I really like having the youtube video on in the background for the first 30 minutes and while I'm starting to come out of it.
The day after my 2nd dose was when Dr. Smith sent out the email. Before I got the email I was feeling great, but then I spiraled and drank too much and sobbed my eyes out. I'm in MO which is one of the states not covered by a lot of the providers here.
I'm considering going to mindbloom, but I thought I'd ask my psychiatrist first -- if I can get in before I run out.
So now I'm spacing them out to one a week. I've now done two whole doses (a total of four session: 2 at 100mg and 2 at 200mg).
I feel good the day after the 200mg, but the session itself is more difficult. It is relaxing, but I get very disoriented to the point where I can't really relax as much because my mind is trying to make sense of what's going on. Maybe I need to surrender more, but I guess that scares me a little bit. I do continue with the mantra, you are safe, everything is ok. I just don't feel like I'm connecting as well with myself as when I did the 100mg. But I don't know if I need to build my tolerance.
But also, since I need to find a new provider, I'm wondering if I should try splitting my next dose or if I should try a whole dose? I don't like that I feel so groggy for the rest of the evening--frankly--the aftermath is exhausting. I do take xanax at night to sleep. Dr. Smith's office said as long as I don't take it 16 hours before treatment I'm fine. But I usually take it about 5 hours after treatment for sleep. Only 1-1.5mg.
Because I never got my 30 day follow-up, I was just hoping maybe someone would have some insight? Also, if my psych declines to prescribe (he prescribed me Spravato but it was denied by my insurance, as was Auvelity), I was thinking to try mindbloom.
This isn't something I want to do forever, but I have to say, cutting out that inner critic for 90 minutes is the best feeling in the world. I'm one of those people that just can't relax. I'm always in prep mode for disaster, and a lot of the times I'm dealing with really shitty circumstances. I've never done drugs outside of this and weed (once it became legal). But I've run the gamut on SSRIs. I work out, and have been on yoga retreats. I'm in therapy regularly. But this seems to be helping.
So any advice about the dosing? I appreciate your help. I wish you all luck in this journey. I was recently watching the Geography of Bliss with Rainn Wilson on Peacock. I read the book many years ago. It's a nice show and it seems he suffers from similar issues. Thought I'd recommend.

In 1982, a female patient was taken to a mental hospital in Columbia, South Carolina for schizophrenia. She never provided her name, and when she ended up dying on February 15, due to aspirating her stomach contents, they were unable to identify her.
Until now. Thanks to genetic genealogy, she's been identified as Virginia Higgins Ray from Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Surviving family members assisted in confirming her identity.

2023.05.30 20:21 RTFMicheal AI Companions the Future of Productivity?

I've been thinking a lot recently about how technology, particularly AI, can play a role in personal productivity. One concept that's caught my attention is the idea of an 'AI conversation companion' for tracking thoughts, ideas, and progress in various areas of life.
Imagine having an AI that you can converse with on a regular basis, where it asks you thoughtful questions about topics you're interested in or working on. Over time, it adapts its questions based on your responses and generates summaries, which can be reviewed and reflected upon at any time.
Such an AI companion could act as a kind of automated journal or diary, providing a space for reflection and self-improvement, but with the added benefits of interactivity and adaptability. It could also serve as an accountability tool, reminding you of your goals and progress, and prompting regular reflection.
What do you all think about the potential of using AI to aid productivity? Have you used any similar tools or services? What methods do you use today to prep helping future AI companions understand your life/goals?

The general public.
In the past, the elite were suppose be provide a minimum of generosity and defense to the masses: noblesse oblige.
But now the masses are just something to monetize purely for profit.
Logan, although he brought out a certain meagerness to man - had journalist intent. Like the WSJ, the news section informs, while the OpEd section poisons.
But the news section is expensive to operate (deep investigative research is really expensive), while the OpEd section is just people bloviating. It's the perfect analogy to food versus junk food.
Would Kendall have kept some level of journalism? Of feeding the masses with knowledge? Maybe! On some days, he'd be feeding the masses with knowledge of Sub-Saharan Africa (with terrible audience numbers). Or other days, he'd be feeding the masses with Mencken.
But instead, "I squeeze the costs and juice the revenue" "I'm cutting heads and harvesting eyeballs"
It's junk food from here on out. Feast on the poison.
Worth reading: Jesse Armstrong's essay on the origins of Succession
consider what happens when something as important as the flow of information in a democracy hits the reductive brutality of the profit calculation inside such a company. How those elements might rebound emotionally and psychologically inside a family as it considered the question of corporate succession.

2023.05.30 18:55 TurboTenant [Landlord Experience - US - CO]- Lease Renewal: An A to Z Guide for Landlords (Blog)

Long-term rental properties can have many advantages, like an extended lease length that provides a constant cash flow for landlords. However, all leases must come to an end, which means learning how to properly go through a lease renewal is an important part to being a landlord. A lease renewal is defined as an option for the current tenant to continue living in a rental property for a specified time period which is agreed upon by both parties – it also outlines certain rules and conditions regarding the property. According to Rental Housing Journal, 62.7% of renters renewed their leases in 2022.
If you’ve secured a great tenant who you get along with, treats your property nicely, pays rent on time, and hasn’t given you any trouble, you’ll probably want to seek a lease renewal with them as soon as possible. On the other hand, not seeking a lease renewal with some tenants is a great way to find a renter who is better suited for your property.
We’ve compiled the ultimate guide to help landlords navigate the lease renewal process in order to answer any and all questions you might have – check it out!

Pros and Cons of a Lease Renewal

As with many things, there are both pros and cons to a lease renewal for you and your tenants. Whether you want to renew leases for multiple tenants or just one, it comes down to determining what the best option is for you and your rental property at the time.


Eliminate the Cost of Finding a New Tenant

While there are many free tools to help you find new tenants, rental turnover still has a high cost attached to it. The cost of tenant turnover is both a financial and timeliness one – for example, advertising, maintenance and cleaning costs can add up.

Why a Lease Renewal Isn’t for Every Tenant

While you might have the perfect tenant staying in your rental, some tenants might not accept your lease renewal offer for a variety of reasons. Many times tenants don’t seek lease renewals for lifestyle changes, such as, they get married, get a new job or are moving somewhere closer to their families or work – they might even be moving out of state.
Life happens, so staying flexible and understanding in this situation is in everyone’s best interest. It’s also important to remember they don’t owe you an explanation on why they’re not renewing their lease with you. If they aren’t renewing their lease for such lifestyle changes, you should remember this if they need a landlord recommendation later on down the road – if they were a good tenant then it is always a courteous thing to do.

Finding New Tenants

If you eventually need to find a new tenant – don’t worry. There are many outlets and tools to use these days that will easily help you find tenants who will fit well with you and your rental property.
Online Marketing: Marketing your property on all the major listing sites will help you fill your vacancy faster – marketing syndication will allow you to do this with just one click instead of having to go to each individual site and post yourself.
Tenant screening is an essential step in the search process. You want to ensure you know exactly who you are renting to as you want to be positive they will be a safe and trustworthy individual. Tenant screening can include many things from hard data to soft attributes and qualities like the following:

Guide to Offering a Lease Renewal

While it might seem like a simple process there is a proper way to offer a lease renewal to your tenants. You want to be as professional as possible while giving ample time and consideration for your tenant to decide what to do. Here is a quick guide on how to offer a lease renewal:

1. Determine the Lease Renewal Period

Generally, the lease renewal notice period should be 90 days before the current lease expires to give a good amount of notice for both you and the renter.

2. Send a Lease Renewal Letter

A professional lease renewal letter is a great way to communicate with your tenant about their options; it should include when the current lease expires, what the new lease’s time period would be, and the rent price (whether it’s the same or increasing). For example:
Dear (TENANT),
I want to let you know your current lease will expire mm-dd-yyyy! I have thoroughly enjoyed having you as my tenant and you’ve been a great renter. I want to offer you another (one-year, six-month, etc.) lease at the rate of $/month. Please let me know if you are interested by mm-dd-yyyy – if so, I’d be happy to send you the new lease and answer any questions you might have. Thank you so much – I look forward to hearing from you.

3. Draft a New Lease

Even if you only want to make minor adjustments, a new lease agreement is necessary for both parties. Write and update your lease to include any changes including policies, rent terms, rent prices and any other information you want to update. It is also important to check state-by-state laws and lease inclusions that may be necessary.

4. Sign the New Lease

Remember, nothing is binding until both parties have signed the new lease! Send the new lease to your tenant and once they review and approve you both can sign and file away until next year.
The lease renewal process can be quick and efficient if done properly. There are, however, many factors and additional options for landlords to think about before and after the process.

Other Lease Renewal Factors to Consider

It’s important to recognize a lease renewal is not always a black and white process. While it’s true it can be simple, there are additional factors to consider for the future of your property.

Does My Current Tenant Make a Good Fit for the Property?

Sometimes the tenant you selected to live in your rental was more difficult to get along with than anticipated, caused issues with neighbors, damaged the property or didn’t pay rent on time. In this scenario, a lease renewal might not be the best option. Instead, you could take the lease expiration as an opportunity to find a renter who will be better suited to your property.

Will I Want to Raise Rent in the Future?

Whether you’re leasing to inherited tenants, or you’ve decided that keeping your current tenants is of high value for you and your property long-term, you could consider lowering the rent or keeping it the same. On the other hand, sometimes the market may call for an increase in your rent prices. In this case, being open and honest to your tenants about this change might still encourage them to stay. You could also consider sending a rent increase letter to be as professional and transparent as possible.

Lease Renewal vs. Month-to-Month Leasing

If you aren’t necessarily looking for a long-term tenant or your tenant is unsure about their time frame, a month-to-month lease is another option. There are pros and cons to both a lease renewal versus opting for the month-to-month option.
Some things to remember with a month-to-month lease: you can and should raise the rent since it is such a flexible and less-secure option, it’s usually only for a brief period of time and it will expire upon 30 days notice from either party. A lease renewal, however, will provide more stability as it is usually a long-term agreement for one-year or more.

What is My Property Worth?

As a landlord, it is important to stay up-to-date on the current rental value of your unit. How do newer units in your neighborhood compare to yours? Furthermore, have you made any updates to your unit that would put it at a higher value? All of these things are important to consider if you want to get the most out of your investment. The rental market can change frequently, so being informed will help determine if you need to lower or raise the rent to make a fair and good profit.

Lease Renewal FAQ

Below are some common questions you might have about lease renewals or the lease renewal process.
  1. Does a landlord have to renew a lease? No, a landlord does not have to renew a lease with the same tenant if the current lease has expired. If a tenant asks to renew their lease, you can tell them you are not offering renewals at this time – sending a lease renewal rejection letter is not required, but a courteous thing to do.
  2. What happens when a lease expires? When a lease expires, the tenant is required to move out based on the ramifications of the original lease. If they did not accept the lease renewal they must move out, so your future tenants can move into the property.
  3. What is an automatic lease renewal? An automatic lease renewal is a lease period that renews every month, every six months or every year for the same amount of time. This arrangement can continue on until a landlord or tenant ends the lease.
  4. What if your tenant wants to negotiate a lease renewal? Sometimes tenants might negotiate maintenance updates like painting or new appliances in order for them to sign another lease with you. Investing time to update your unit would be beneficial for the future, but you could negotiate back a longer lease renewal, such as two years, for those updates.

A lease renewal is a very important process and should not be overlooked. Going through the process properly and professionally will be beneficial for both you and your renter – and, you might end up finding the perfect tenant. Lease renewals will enable you to keep good renters who are already familiar with the lease terms, save time and money from having to fill vacancies and increase the potential for a long-term renter. On the flip side, you might have limited options to do renovations, have more difficulties raising rent and might let your rules slide a little bit after getting comfortable with the tenant.
Finding ideal tenants from the start with the use of online rental applications and tenant screening will make the lease renewal process much easier and filling vacancies easier if necessary. If you’re looking to fill a vacancy or learn more about online rental applications, TurboTenant can help you with the process.

2023.05.30 18:04 MySucculentDied Lanthanide crystal-field splitting

I’m on the teaching side of this. We are developing a spectroscopy lab course as an intro to quantum mechanics.
Right now I’m looking into lanthanide complexes in UV-vis. I’m trying to provide a brief explanation of why some transitions undergo crystal-field splitting. My issue is I can’t find many nice beginner friendly sources I can include in the citations. I want something that won’t overwhelm the students and is more to the point.
I’m including CFT briefly as a way to introduce the concept of splitting as opposed to it being a focus in this lab. This way students understand that splitting happens but they don’t have to go into specific symmetries and structures. We are, however, having them label the peaks they observe with the corresponding transitions (5D0->7F2 for example), so some awareness of splitting is needed.
Does anyone know of any decent resources (textbooks, literature reviews, journals…)? I fear the more I look at research the less grasp I have of the undergraduate student’s level of knowledge. So I really just need something simple. Thanks.

2023.05.30 17:49 Kwakigra Microdosing with ADHD

I have often seen in discourse concerning the efficacy of microdosing the informal conclusion that it is almost certainly a placebo effect due to the lack of a felt effect in most users (Edit: This is an anecdotal observation taken from reading discussions, not from scientific research). This has always confused me because to me the effect is obvious and clear. This being the case I have recently been coming to terms with the fact that I have ADHD and that my neuroprocesses are not necessarily the norm.
Until recently I assumed that most minds worked like mine, that being at least one constant stream of thought that cannot be stopped intentionally except for brief moments during deep meditation with sometimes an additional stream of thought providing commentary on the primary stream of thought. I always have at least one narration going on at all times which can make it difficult to pay attention or focus on one thing (I have the inattentive type). This being the case I am very familiar with the regular structure of my thought processes and how those processes are different when influenced by microdosing.
Additionally, I can literally forget that I am being influenced by microdosing after a few days and often will miss the third-day window. I have noticed (especially in journaling which I am more motivated to do) the structure of my thoughts is still different regardless of my awareness that I have been mircodosing at any given time. This makes me doubt that my experience must be caused by the placebo effect although of course I still acknowledge it as a possibility.
I experienced microdosing prior to experiencing a full dose of the same substance, and found that the macrodose was an extremely heightened version of the microdose to me. I find it strange that I would have been able to predict in any way what effect this substance could have had without really having any actual experience with it, but I suppose it is still possible.
This is all anecdotal of course, so I am interested in the experience of others who have ADHD who have attempted microdosing and what their experience has been. Have you noticed any effect on your thought patterns, or felt differently while influenced by consistent microdosing for at least once every three days for a period of one month?
Edit: As for what we know from academic research concerning the effects of microdosing vs placebo, I found this article by the author of a meta-analysis of 44 studies from the mid 1950s to mid-2021. According to his table included in the article, these are specifically which effects have been reported and investigated in a controlled setting which they were not able to support through experimentation, and what I assume occurred similarly in the placebo and non-placebo groups:
*Improved mood *Social connection *Improved cognition *Enhanced emotional processing *Increased energy 
Very importantly, the author found that "Changes in conscious state" is supported by evidence. He suggests that there are vastly more unknowns than knowns at this time and further research is necessary.
I have found some news articles that claim microdosing is no different than placebo but was not able to find what they were measuring or a link to the article they were referring to. If anyone can refer me to scholarly research other than what I've mentioned here which includes finding no evidence to support that microdosing does X Y or Z compared to placebo, please let me know where I can find it. This is all for my curiosity and I wonder what we've looked into at this time.

2023.05.30 16:30 christopheraune Consider the contrasts to Umberto Eco's 14 features of fascism What can we be doing that clearly stands against fascist features in America? Here are some contrasting points for consideration and debate.

Umberto Eco’s 14 Features of Fascism and Their Contrasts
1. The cult of tradition: the strict adherence to established customs, practices, or beliefs (esp. Christianity and kings/authoritarians “by divine right.”)
Contrasted to
Celebration of innovation: values new ideas, change, and advancement (esp. freedom, thinking for oneself, and rule by consent of the people)
2. The rejection of modernism: Fascists see it as modern depravity, so they resist social and cultural change. They advocate for a return to older, established traditions and values (esp. Christianity and kings/authoritarians “by divine right”).
Contrasted to
The celebration of modernism: Modernism is a broad philosophical, arts, and religious transformation in Western society during 19th and 20th centuries, originating in the 17th century with The Age of Reason, The Enlightenment. Enlightenment thinkers originated the ideas integrated into the U.S. Constitution, forming an entirely new form of government, a democratic federal republic. (esp. freedom, thinking for oneself, and rule by consent of the people)
3. The cult of action for action’s sake: “Action being beautiful in itself, it must be taken before or without any previous reflection. Thinking is a form of emasculation.”
Contrasted to
The embrace of thoughtful deliberation: Before taking action, (1) clearly define the question, (2) gather the facts/data, (3) describe the current and the desired circumstances, (4) generate many alternative solutions to achieving the desired circumstance, (5) synergize the alternatives into one best solution, (6) take massive action to implement the best solution with focus and energy, (7) gather feedback on solution effectiveness in achieving the desired circumstance, and (8) adjust the solution so it is more effective.
4. Disagreement is treason. “The critical spirit makes distinctions, and to distinguish is a sign of modernism.”
Contrasted to
The dialectic improves knowledge: In modern culture, the reality-based community comes to the most accurate knowledge through a three-step dialectic process: thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. This process is used in argumentation (including in courts), in professional journalism (reports of facts, not opinions), and in science through more than 10,000 peer-reviewed journals.
5. Fear of difference. “The first appeal of a fascist or prematurely fascist movement is an appeal against the intruders.”
Contrasted to
Celebration of diversity. Diverse perspectives, experiences, and identities are key to creativity and innovation, as well as to enriching society. Honoring differences creates a safe space for all individuals to live freely. The celebration of diversity fosters understanding, empathy, and equity among individuals of different backgrounds.
6. Appeal to social frustration. “One of the most typical features of the historical fascism was the appeal to a frustrated middle class, a class suffering from an economic crisis or feelings of political humiliation, and frightened by the pressure of lower social groups.”
Contrasted to
Addressing social needs and promoting social harmony. It entails documenting and understanding the underlying causes of people inability to achieve a better life. This approach seeks to create the conditions where all individuals can achieve a fulfilling quality of life. It emphasizes collaboration, understanding, and dialectical deliberation as a means to achieve unity and a better life.
7. The obsession with a plot. “Thus at the root of the Ur-Fascist psychology there is the obsession with a plot, possibly an international one. The followers must feel besieged.”
Contrasted to
Apathy and a feeling of disempowerment OR Keenly holding a sharp vision of the desired circumstances and building consensus to achieve it. People tend to feel overwhelmed by the constant drilling of the fascist propaganda, and fascist challenges to every quality vision, and they become apathetic. Driving the clear vision in public media educates people and provides any easy path to become involved in activities achieving that vision.
8. The enemy is both strong and weak. “By a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak.
Contrasted to
The enemy is shifty. The enemy is fundamentally evil, defined as dehumanizing (as contrasted to developing optimal human potential). The enemy is sophisticated, accusing their opponents of doing what they themselves are about to do (or already got caught doing): creating false equivalencies. They take two opposing positions at once and making them seem like they support each other. They create confusion and “flood the (media) zone with shit.”
9. Pacifism is trafficking with the enemy. “For Eternal Fascism there is no struggle for life but, rather, life is lived for struggle.”
Contrasted to
Extremism is trafficking with the enemy. Extremists have no room for any way but their way. They block and demean any conversation or diplomacy with opponents. They demonize anyone who doesn’t embrace their worldview. Talking to them is impossible as they quickly begin shouting and name calling. Extinguish extremism by utterly ignoring it.
10. Contempt for the weak. “Elitism is a typical aspect of any reactionary ideology.”
Contrasted to
Compassion for the vulnerable: Supporting those who are unable or disabled. Supporting those who have fallen through the cracks by facilitating their attempts to improve their circumstances. “Teach a man to fish.” “Never do more for someone than they are willing to do for themselves.”
11. Everybody is educated to become a hero. “In Eternal Fascist ideology, heroism is the norm. This cult of heroism is strictly linked with the cult of death.”
Contrasted to
Every life is sacred. Immanuel Kant, Enlightenment thinker, proposed that individuals should be treated as ends in themselves and never merely as means to an end. Therefore, human beings have intrinsic worth and should be treated with dignity and respect, protected and empowered to their greatest potential.
12. Machismo and weaponry. “Machismo implies both disdain for women and intolerance and condemnation of nonstandard sexual habits, from chastity to homosexuality.”
Contrasted to
Insight and compassion. Insight implies that all details are nested in a greater whole, and there are “infinite diversity in infinite combinations” all originating from the same energy field and the same star dust. Therefore, anything we think we understand is always subject to new discoveries and new methods of study; that is, we always question our own understanding. It follows that we must exercise compassion for every other human being, living thing, and every thing that exists, because of our own limited understanding. Others may be weaker, but their existence is just as valid as our own.
13. Selective populism. “There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and accepted as the Voice of the People.”
Contrasted to
Virtually comprehensive populism. America is “E Pluribus Unum,” out of many one. There is a safe space for every one in America, to the point where extremists are allowed to operate here. However, our founding principles and societal morality does not allow for extremists who reject other groups and want to impose their narrow agenda on everyone else. In this case, the exception indeed makes the rule.
14. Eternal Fascism speaks Newspeak. “All the Nazi or Fascist schoolbooks made use of an impoverished vocabulary, and an elementary syntax, in order to limit the instruments for complex and critical reasoning.”
Contrasted to
Freedom of speech. The United States 3,300 people arrested for saying the wrong things. Only 400 in Russia. We still have a lot of work to do to achieve freedom of speech.
Okay, you made it this far. What do you think?
