    A masterful political distraction away from the emerging story that Cuomo purposely moved sick (identified as Covid infected but imo were flu and pneumonia) elderly into senior facilities with the intention, and eventual success, of killing off thousands of elderly residents that NY state was footing the bill for their care. Nothing like a flimsy #metoo type headline to bury what looks to be mass genocide by a sitting Governor. That narrative sounds like typical NY italian behavior, straight out of a Scorcese wedding scene.

    Aufheben der Dr. Seuss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPYieRhLATw The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 23 Aufheben is a German word that, in Critical Theory, means to "abolish" or to "negate" in the way that Critical Theorists do. It's a somewhat complicated term in that it means both to abolish and to keep or to keep safe, and the Critical Theory taps into the so-called dialectical process to attempt to use aufheben to tear apart and, as the Marxists translated it, "sublate" whatever cultural artifact they are targeting onto a "higher" level of understanding, namely the one that empowers Critical Theorists and induces misery in everyone else. This process was widely pushed by the Critical Theorists of the Frankfurt School under a doctrine of Aufheben der Kultur ("abolishment of culture"), and it continues in the Woke movement today. One of the latest big targets of Aufheben der Kultur is Dr. Seuss and his wide body of popular children's literature. Why? Because of its success. Seuss becomes a cultural anchor point for hundreds of millions of children and adults, and by tainting Seuss, his legacy, and your own memories of him with accusations of racism and "harm," they can abolish that shared cultural anchor and make more room to advance their own agenda, in which every text is "decolonized" and geared to indoctrinate you and your children into Critical Theory, especially Critical Race Theory. Join James Lindsay in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast to dig into the Critical Dr Seuss academic literature to see where this Aufheben der Dr Seuss comes from and how it works.

    I was posting videos of Viva Frei's analysis of the Parler v. Amazon case in this thread, but it makes more sense to put them in the "Amazon removes hosting for Parler" thread. I've posted the most recent update (as of 03 March 2021) to that thread (here: Parler vs. Amazon "Voluntary Dismissal"? Lawyer Explains - Viva Frei Vlawg), and I will start posting any future updates there as well.

Here's the most recent news (as of 03 March 2021): Parler vs. Amazon "Voluntary Dismissal"? Lawyer Explains - Viva Frei Vlawg Parler filed a voluntary dismissal of its lawsuit against Amazon.

    Not always. Have you never heard of qualified immunity? Statute of limitations? The survivors of the Rosewood massacre were, most of them children, were to afraid, being the victims of mob justice that was backed by a corrupt, racist legal system, to file suit until many years later. So...no justice for them based on a technicality? Groups are made up of individuals. That's what you keep blabbering about when it comes to corporations. Edit: And I see you still are afraid to discuss the actual subject of the thread.

    Awesome! And kudos for Rand for sticking to his principles. I know it might have been tempting in the wake of his run in with BLM crowds last summer to just say "Screw it! You're on your own." Edit: I just realized this got passed in the KENTUCKY legislature. Rand's federal bill addressing the issue still hasn't passed. :(

    Also, the cadre of activists is much larger today than it was then. At the time, Critical Theory was securing its position in the universities, and hadn't yet captured K-12 education, corporate HR & marketing departments, and government entities & NGOs (as it has now).

    I agree with you about the World War II propaganda when it came to the Japanese. But America wasn't at war with any African countries. In fact we were allied WITH the African country of Ethiopia against Italy. Yet Africans and African Americans were treated as poorly as the Japanese before, during and for a while after both World Wars. I agree with you that there were different cultural norms. I am glad those norms changed. It would be interesting to know the publication dates of the offensive Dr. Seuss books as compared to the Lorax and the Sneeds. Interesting observation of the Sneeds and cancel culture of calling the stars "old fashioned." Certainly there is a cultural aspect going on. The interesting thing is that the "star / no-star" style went in and out of fashion. (Like bell bottoms coming back?) From that perspective The Sneeds could address things other than just race, although I looked at it strictly from a race lens possibly due to my own experience.

    Ah. I see. So it wasn't that there wasn't outrage. It's that the outraged people weren't so vocal. I'm surprised they haven't forced Anthony Hopkins and Jody Foster issue a public apology. That said, it's also strange that the idea of "just let adults do what they want with their body" is such a difficult concept. The idea that Buffalo Bill so desparately wanted a sex change that he became a mass murderer after failing the psychological qualifier is as nuts as the current situation of the dad having to fight in court to keep his ex wife from pushing hormone blockers on their son. Rand Paul is right. This isn't complicated. There is no "nuance" here.

    Nope. I'm just not going to pretend that corporations are no different than individuals. You can have a corporation of one individual. Why is that so hard for you to understand? That said, I have nothing against anarchists. You can have civilization without what we call government. You also can have government without having corporations. You can't have corporations without government. A corporation is a government charter. It makes zero sense to say that an entity that has been granted a government license should not have an restrictions placed on that license. You don't like those restrictions? Don't take the license. Just be a partnership.

    We disagree. Reparations to the Jews from the Germans for what was done to them was proper. Same for Japanese for what happened to them in the internment camps. Same for the reparations the Jews got from Egypt in Exodus. I disagree with the reparations the Hatians had to give the French after their revolution. I disagree with the reparations the U.S. Congress gave Ford and GM (more corporations) because the allies bombed their Nazi German factories. Reparations for the survivors of the Rosewood Florida massacre and ethnic cleansing was proper. I'm not sure the OP could really even be called reparations. If the system has STILL been titled towards white farmers, fixing that so that all farmers have access isn't reparations. It's ending discrimination. Unless all farm subsidies were ended except for black farmers, then it's not correct to say this is "stimulus for minority farmers only." Whenever money is pooled and distributed, there is a danger of one group being favored over another. Go back to the Bible and the Book of Acts. The Greeks widows were complaining that the church poor fund was being disproportionately given to the Jewish widows. So...the disciples instituted a church "affirmative action" program where they made sure there were Greek and Jewish deacons to distribute the money.

    As I recall, the LGBWHATEVER activist crowd got pissed off at The Silence of the Lambs way back when it first came out, too (especially when it was nominated for and won so many Oscars). They denounced Jonathan Demme (the director), called for boycotts, etc. No way would the movie ever get made today - not without significant changes. Which goes to show that all this sort of thing is not just coming out of nowhere - it's been brewing for literally decades now. It's just now coming to a continuous, rolling boil.

    What's really disappointing to me about this whole subject, from the right or the left, is that there is no nuance. There is no concept of the fact that people change over time nor is there any thought given to the fact that the same people can hold contradictory ideas. This is Dr. Seuss. It wasn't one of his books, but it was advertisement that he drew from the "Flit" product. Clearly ^that is racist. This is also Dr. Seuss.

    You understand that TheTexan is usually being sarcastic right? As for moral superiority, that would be jackasses running around complaining about little people getting a handout and then turning a blind eye when big corporations get a hand out. Furthermore when individuals get together without a government license that is called a PARTNERSHIP and NOT a corporation. You can have a corporation of ONE PERSON! It's about a GOVERNMENT granted privilege which allows growth while limiting the rights of other people to sue you. I've explained this to you ad naeaum. You're being wilfully ignorant at this point.

    Straw man argument that has NOTHING to do with the irrefutable facts I just presented to you. The farm subsidy program is an example of systemic racism and crony capitalism and should be abolished period. Talk about that and don't try to change the subject.

    I was thinking about this the other day. There is no way The Silence Of The Lambs could be made today. Remember the villain Buffulo Bill? He had gender dysphoria, was denied a sex change operation, and was killing women to cut off their body parts and make himself a suit. The LGBTQIA community got mad at J.K. Rowling for simply writing a book where the villain, who was not transgender, dressed up as a woman as a disguise which is something that actually happened recently in real life. Also the real life man who inspired Hannibal Lecter was a gay Mexican Doctor. While that wasn't brought out (no pun intended) in the film it is strongly hinted at in the TV show.. So someone could say Hannibal was "straight washed" and "white washed." And imagine if Trump had said "even some of the doctors Mexico is sending over are cannibals."
