I don't believe in free will and therefore think the notion of people choosing to be things such as "hard worker" or "lazy" is false. Since I think people are just what they are programmed to be and environmentally activated to demonstrate certain programming at any given time.

So if free will is eventually proven to not exist, the best course of action is to probably reform things to fit that notion. For instance; punishment, and prisons. And then therapy to help cut out/replace certain genes would probably be a good step.

Trump wants to turn the US into a Communist regime by turning himself into a dictator similar in manner
to Kim-Jong Un. :evil:

I'd say he's turning it into more of a fascist regime, but either way, it's totalitarian.

if, by some major miracle, we emerge from the cult of The Dotard with our representative democracy back from the doorstep of fascism, in the same mediocre state it was in before, we need to remember for all time, just who voted for that man and his neofascistic party, who voted with malice aforethought to assault the rest of us in this way, and avoid them like the plague.

Parents of underage children (specifically of children 10 and under) have become more lenient. :x

adults who won't get out of the way should be treated just as similarly misbehaving children would be treated.

Trying to stop a issue isn't going to fix the issue and make it stop. Solving whatever is causing it will make it stop.

Hostile architecture isn't going to keep people from being homeless and it also affects the ones who are not homeless.

the people in Seattle who want to pack their homeless onto buses and ship them all down to Tacoma, are being shortsighted and juvenile.

The current mayor of Portland is doing a relatively better job of controlling the homeless population unlike the mayor before him who didn't care about the homeless population at all.

I have no choice but to agree.
Granted, maintaining this perception seems like a recipe for indifference or detachment in general.

Hostile architecture pisses me off. Hell, anti-homeless benches piss me off too.
