I wouldn't feed the trolls like Scott does, but then again that's his business model.

Attention doesn't seek calm rational discussion, like a moth it seeks the flame.

I'll admit I napped out around 11AM, but it appears that the Sylvester the Cat cartoonist has turned to mocking the people he now admits were 'right'. I caught the white board segment, but he never touched on the obvious tell that he was blind to: the Nurmberg trials in 1947.
Quote:
https://en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Nuremberg_Code
Nuremberg Code - Wikipedia
They began on 20 November 1945, in Nuremberg, Germany, in what became known as the Nuremberg trials. In the trial of USA v. Brandt, which became known as the "Doctors' Trial", German physicians responsible for conducting unethical medical procedures on humans during the war were tried.
....and hanged by the neck until dead -- even though the drop was too short and the trapdoors too small.

He's mocking everyone, all the time. Those that think he's on their side, with the exception of a handful of issues he's super passionate about, don't realize they are being mocked, or enjoy that form of entertainment.

He is also using a persuasion strategy that essentially goes "I'm in complete agreement with everything you said, now here's where you're wrong".

One bit of mocking was saying how we need a "Dumb Davos". I don't know what a Davos is, but Scott explained it's where a bunch of intelligent and influential people gather to strategize about improving future outcomes. "If all the educated college graduates were taking the vaccine and were wrong, then we need a Dumb Davos where people who were right all along gather and educate everyone how to be right all along".

I'm entirely uninterested in people's decision to vaccinate or not, but the whole discussion misses the important part; that politicians have no business manipulating the free decision to take or not take it. Furthermore, asking about vaccination status is a HIPAA violation. Since when do we get to ignore the law?

While one side is calling the other dumb and cowardly, we let the politicians off the hook.

When rich and influential people gather I guarantee they are not trying to make people's lives better, quite the opposite.

DuckDuckGo can't confirm that doctors and journalists were hung at Nurmberg. Wikipedia says it was nine political leaders (plus Bormann in absentia).

Do you have any source (or opinion) one way or the other?

Probably half see an opportunity, and half are simply naive. Most don't embrace pure evil and delight in grinding people up, even if that ends up being the outcome.

Who, me? I avoid history to the extent I can. There's just too much of it, and we keep making more all the time.

I'm completely against the death penalty, unless someone presents as a clear and present danger, in which case I'm for the death penalty as swiftly and thoroughly as possible.

I appreciate that SA annoys both the vaxxers and anti-vaxxers.

His whole deal is to awaken people from their binary thought process. Do masks work, or do they not work? Wrong question. Anyone answering that question has already been manipulated to think in binary.

Funny that he accepts the simulation, but rejects the binary. Maybe that's just him trying to overcome the design limitations.

Good point today.

Aprox. half the country wonders why President Trump isn't in jail, while approx. half wonder why Joe Biden isn't, yet.

It's a weird equivalency.

Apparently, Bill Gates has been red pilled on the vaccines.
