2021.09.20 03:13 KnightFoole Just a reminder: The United Federation of Planets is neither Socialist nor Communist.
Note: This post is a response to the recent "Star Trek is socialist" post.
Someone in those comments pointed out, correctly, that declaring Star Trek this or that is actually nonsense because its a TV show created by writers.
This is totally correct.
But I had a response about what we can and cannot say about a society that would have the material realities we see in Star Trek. I'm reposting most of that comment here:
"....we can make some inferences on what a society would be like that had access to matter replicators, virtually free energy, powerful AI & robotics labor, and the ability to travel from star to star.
The writers of Star Trek has, for decades, ranged from excellent, thoughtful people with a lot of diverse ideas to, as is the case for the last few years, talentless, low-bar activists who have chiefly used the writers room as a “social agenda first/story second” platform from which to honk on mightily about their own perspective on the world…specifically the undereducated, latte sipping California 20 something moron who truly believes they live in a hopelessly oppressive society that needs to be overthrown…and their just the ones to do it.
These morons look at Star Trek and see a society that can only exist in terms they are familiar with: if there’s no money and everybody is free and happy to do whatever they want, it MUST be a communist Utopia.
Except anyone who has paid the slightest bit of attention to decades of Trek…and is aware of the material elements of the fictional society that has been reinforced over and over again…would understand that there’s no “centrally planned” economy in the Federation. There’s no government/socialist distribution of good and services. People make their own choices and enjoy extreme freedom because having a replicator and a fusion reactor in your house is essentially free. A robot that cleans and repairs things around the house is also essentially free. There’s no point of hoarding, or buying, or selling, or cornering a market…and certainly no purpose in a government doing these things because it costs nothing to produce them. The federation is a zero marginal cost society.
Those material realities …and the ability to move from world to world…would have a profound effect on what people grow to value. Status, achievement, advancement…reputation and merit would be highly sought after conditions. All basic needs are more than met, so people become free to improve their lives. Socialism *claims* to do this, but can’t because there are still fundamental market forces socialist and communist societies cannot escape.
Star Trek, in actual practice, would NOT be a Utopia achieved from ending capitalism and embracing socialism.
The Federation standard of living would be achieved via the technological engine that only a free market can create.
Specifically, a free market in a society that is culturally stable and mentally healthy, as opposed to wrapped in the delusions of Marxist notions of collectivist conformity and control.
The United Federation of Planets would look a lot like the fundamentals of American principles in their most ideal form: life, liberty, the pursuit of one's own happiness...responsibility and respect toward your family, community, and nation....respect for freedom of speech and thought...everyone is judged on the content of their character instead of whatever 'group identity' they belong to.
- Live long and prosper.

2021.09.20 03:13 BGH2021 Grindr etiquette
I’m fairly new to Grindr. What should I do when someone hits me up and I am not interested in him? I recognize that I have certain privileges, including what some would call being “conventionally good looking.” I do get a lot of taps and messages. At first, I tried to respond to everyone to be nice. If chat with almost anyone. But then guys would get mad when I wouldn’t want to meet them. So, now, I ignore guys I’m not interested in. But some of them get really weird and start sending increasingly crazy messages when I don’t reply. I don’t block anyone unless they get really aggressive. What is the right thing to do? I know that Grindr can be a cesspool and can be hard on self esteem. I don’t want to contribute to that. I just want to be kind and get the occasional blow job. But there are a lot of guys who are less than kind if I don’t say I want to meet them.

2021.09.20 03:13 OmarSparks Do people are still wearing jean overalls?
I remember seeing people brought back denim jean overalls about 3 or 4 years ago. I remember Chance The Rapper brought it back then I was seeing certain rappers like Freddie Gibbs and others. I was gonna purchase some army fatigue overalls but I’m not too sure how it will look on me. Im haven’t wore a pair of overalls since I was 5 years old. I’m about to be 35 and I thought about wearing them. Are people still wearing here and there or they’re not wearing them at this moment?

2021.09.20 03:13 akefaloskavalaris Love this game because of how much it relaxes me, looking for other ambient games.
Hoping that this may interest other COTW lovers for its ambience, I am here to ask for the community's recommendations on other similar / ambient games. COTW checks three big boxes: Good graphics, ambient - slow atmosphere, and engaging (enough) gameplay. Firewatch is the closest I've found, but I guess there should be more... Perhaps not exactly similar, but I trust the community's input, so feel free to interpret the post and throw recommendations at will!

Why does the IFL continue to neglect reasonable website updates? They have not made any changes to “current teams” with respect to expansion/folds/relocation.
Seems like they would want to keep things up to date.
