You’re presumably a leftist and you don’t see how this is blaming victims?


Mango.

You’re missing my point. Most working class people don’t have the time/resources to look into all of these alternatives. This is like telling someone who shops at Wal-Mart that if they looked harder, they could find a more ethical place to shop without realizing that the reason why they shop at Wal-Mart is because they can barely afford the time or gas to get there and back.


I understand that reading these things, often full of judicial jargon, is something undesirable, but not doing so is the same as signing a loan in a bank, without reading the conditions, it can give many unpleasant surprises and consequences.

I agree. And similar to bank loans, TOS are often predatory and reliant on working class people not understanding what they’re getting into.

I think you’re blaming the victims of a very predatory practice. In fact, I’d venture to say that even you don’t 100% know what you’re getting into when you’ve read various TOSs. Given the fact that they’re often written by corporate lawyers with the intention of obscuring any nefarious intentions, I think you should try to understand the Sisyphean task you’re assigning working class people with very limited time and resources.

> This is the first of an 8 part Series on Roe v Wade. In this part I discuss the harmful effects that will be caused by Justice Alito's Draft Opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization when it becomes official and the Real human consequences that will be brought about making abortion federally illegal in the United States.

To quote Jerry Seinfeld…

“Have you read that thing? It’s like the Declaration of Independence.”"

Point is,

a) most people don’t have the time to read the TOS;

b) most people don’t understand half of what a TOS even talks about; and

c) people have fewer and fewer alternatives to these companies because this sort of thing is becoming so common.

I’m just replying so I can tell the FBI agent reading this to settle down


Depends on a lot of factors related to the environment, i.e. pollution types, viability of water treatment, food sources and what their growth is reliant on, equipment and what their maintenance is reliant on (i.e. parts/consumables ideally not reliant on regions in heavy conflict).

I’ve never been in a war zone but I have been in one of the country’s worst natural disasters (along with several smaller ones) and what I learned from those experiences is not to trust anyone who refuses to understand the importance of fluid decision-making in complex life or death scenarios, instead rigidly adhering to a fixed plan they had developed long before the emergency situation happened. It ends up slowing them down far more than anything and creates loads of avoidable problems in the name of consistency.

That’s not to say one shouldn’t have a plan but if it relies on taking route A to escape and route A is on fire, the people who blindly say "STICK TO THE PLAN" without recognizing that the plan requires adaptation, they’re not to be trusted because they possess a theoretical understanding of the situation, not a practical understanding.

Far too often people who confidently think their plan A will work, end up dying because they foolishly downplayed the need for adapting/abandoning their plan in the face of impending doom. Wildfires in particular have resulted in entire families burning to death-- wealthy families who were convinced their various expensive, extensive precautionary methods were foolproof but learned the hard way that mother nature can very quickly make a mockery of the measures humans take.


Last year, the Chinese military banned Tesla cars from entering its complexes, citing security concerns over cameras installed on the vehicles, Reuters reported at the time citing sources who had seen the directive.

I think that’s a reasonable security concern.


Thaank you, glad I’m not the only one who feels lost trying to navigate Peertube…

I wouldn’t consider myself a “content creator” but I do post YouTube videos and I wouldn’t be upset at all if people watched my videos through something like FreeTube or NewPipe. I just want people to see/hear what I’m posting.


The fact that it would be an absurdly privileged thing for me to do and would involve me leaving behind a lot of people I can help. I understand other people have their own valid reasons to move and I don’t judge them for it but for me personally, I don’t think it would be the right thing to do.


Yep, I’m starting to notice that. Disappointing.


A not so wise man once said…

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again"


I have no clue how to make a PeerTube account. I’m trying to do that now and it’s asking me to choose an “instance” without explaining what that is. Then when I click the topics relevant to my videos, either no instances show up or those that do have a puny amount of users like 30.

edit: The video finally made it to Odysee. It is here


I just tried to post my video to Odysee and it keeps failing…


What is the best alternative to YouTube?
I recently posted a video of the Jaleel Stallings case but a number of people without Google accounts want to see the video, and so I'd like to post it on another platform. Any recommendations?

He took several kicks and knees to the head and the officer even smashed his head into the pavement. Stallings is definitely lucky to be alive.


> The City of Minneapolis has agreed to pay $1.5 million to Jaleel Stallings, a St. Paul veteran who sued the city after being acquitted of eight felony charges when he shot in self-defense at Minneapolis police officers during the George Floyd protests. > Stallings was acquitted by a jury last summer for the charges after evidence presented directly contradicted accounts provided by police and laid out by prosecutors. Stallings, who was protesting the death of George Floyd on May 30, 2020, said he didn't know the people firing plastic bullets at him from an unmarked cargo van were police, so he fired back. > Once Stalling realized it was police, he laid his weapon down and laid down on the ground. Surveillance video and bodycam footage shows SWAT officers kick, punch and knee Stallings repeatedly in the face and head after he had already surrendered. Officers initially claimed that he had resisted arrest, with a news release describing it as a "struggle." > Stallings suffered a fracture near his eye, as well as cuts and bruises. > The SWAT team involved with Stallings were driving in an unmarked cargo van, firing 40-mm marking rounds at civilians out after curfew. Body camera footage showed officers talking about "hunting" protesters. That's when they eventually beat Stallings and another person he was with after Stallings fired his weapon back at them. He previously stated that he "purposely" missed them. > No Minneapolis Police Department officer has been formally disciplined for their actions during the May 2020 riots as of this day, though one female officer was disciplined for speaking to a reporter anonymously.

Why can’t you answer my very simple question? I was courteous enough to answer yours, so why are you unable to reciprocate?


Great. Seems to me a lot of leftists prefer painting themselves into a corner and then wonder why leftist spaces are lacking. Disappointing but unsurprising. Deleting this thread now, thanks for wasting my time.


I mean, you didn’t even start by saying there isn’t a Lemmy Discord. You immediately just recommended something else instead of even thinking about why I asked for a Discord specifically.


> Arnulfo Reyes can’t forgive law enforcement for taking more than an hour to stop a gunman who killed 11 fourth-graders in his Texas elementary school classroom and 10 other people in the next room, he told ABC. > Reyes, a teacher who was shot twice during the May 24 massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, recalled the horror that unfolded in his room and an adjoining one and spoke, too, in interviews that aired Monday and Tuesday about his mounting anger toward law enforcement responders.
