 Forum: Politics, Philosophy, and Religion   Topic: "Fixing" the Political Process

I've noticed a major flaw in the whole political process, and wanted to get everyone's thoughts on what could be done (if anything) to fix it. I see two major issues (although there are definitely more): the huge influence of money in politics, and the unwillingness of politicians to do anything tha...

Why would you need to "reinvent the wheel"? Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, has for a long time, and is one of the most homicidal cities in the U.S. I think a real solution for reducing gun violence would be very simple using the judicial and penal systems alread...

I see people arguing left and right over gun control, with one side saying it's completely ineffective, and the other side saying it's the only way to reduce gun violence. My thought is: why not come together, run a "trial" to figure out what works and what doesn't, and give everyone what ...

Are there any good videos or books that are geared towards helping people with Aspergers learn body language/facial expressions/social cues? I've been interested in something like this for a while now, and I figured this would be a good place to ask.

The one big caveat is that in any peer-reviewed paper, they are required to include the raw data and methods from their experiments. This means that anyone can go back, look at it, and see how they arrived at whatever conclusions they reached. If you're knowledgeable about the topic, then it's usual...

Why don't people seem to understand or trust science these days? All science really is is seeing something happen over and over again, and drawing conclusions from that. Newton saw that things tend to fall towards the Earth rather than the other way around, so after seeing that happen a few hundred ...

He lives almost 100 miles away. Whatever reasons you might have to not meet up with him, this should not be one of them. That isn't far enough to interfere with having a relationship, at least not in the early stage. In fact, it might offer some additional emotional security. I would disagree - for...

The ONLY way: become her friend first, or at least a friendly acquaintance. Do not ask out strangers, because that rarely works (and when it does, it's usually someone who's quite suave to begin with). Join clubs/organizations that fit your interests, try to get to know the people there, and if you ...

I've noticed that some of the things that Trump is doing seem to be completely counter to traditional Republican values or policy, and yet it seems like the Republican party, and Republicans in general, are still fully supporting them. Is this just me, or has anyone else noticed this? What do you th...

I love video games, but between a full-time job, exercising, cooking dinners for myself, etc., I never find the time to actually play them much anymore. It seems like games are getting more and more time-intensive as well, so that doesn't help. A lot of the newer games may take 200+ hours to actuall...

Before this month, I had never heard of cold-brewed coffee. Now, it seems to be everywhere I look. It's at Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, every local coffee shop, the grocery store, gas stations...everywhere I turn, I see ads for the "New cold-brewed coffee!" Why is this suddenly all over the p...

So did you find true love on a reality dating show? If so, you may have made history for that alone ;). How awkward is it with a camera crew in the room with you the whole time? I've always wondered how much on shows like these is actually "real", and how much is just artificial fluff to a...

your poll number would seem low compared with the poll numbers I've seen. Some the higher performing polls I've seen them getting those numbers among the electorate in general, and their average of polls are not to far from that. Among younger voter's there was one poll which put them as high as 25...

The Green Party and Libertarian Party are the two major "fringe" parties in the US that no one ever really talks about. They both had primaries, conventions, and nominees, but I don't think I've seen a single mention of that in the media. If I have, it was just a single sentence in passing...

Some articles are saying the officer was shooting at the autistic man, for "failure to comply". Despite being told that the person was autistic, and despite the man not being aggressive in any way. Would it be okay to shoot a deaf person who can't hear commands, or a person in a wheelchai...

People always tell me not to care about what others think. What does that mean exactly? I can feel confident with some things, but usually not with dating or social situations. It's hard to explain. But for example: you say you made some "mistakes" on your date: so what? If you make a soc...
