> wired to prefer? are you sure?
I'm not sure at all. now that you ask. though I vaguely recall reading some reporting about research that suggested political alignment was innate, there's also the observation that many people tend to lean to the right as they get older, which leads to the joke that it's a degenerative condition ;-) 2022-05-20 08:28

IMHO, inacessível é uma questão de hábito
sistema fácil e intuitivo é aquele que alguém já aprendeu e acostumou. tudo se aprende. por isso os monopolistas do software, como os vendedores de cigarros, se esforçam para disponibilizar seus produtos para crianças nas escolas 2022-05-20 07:39

pretending to be something popular that you aren't to fool and oppress the gullible is one of the oldest tricks in the political book. most parties in Brazil, for example, have names that sound good on paper, but that don't resemble their ideologies, if any. funniest example is the Brazilian Women's Party, whose only representative in congress was a man. some tragic ones are Progressive Party (proud to be conservative), the Social Liberal Party (that got Bolsonaro elected). and then we have our very own versions of the Republican Party, also of the Democrats (heirs of the military dictatorship) 2022-05-20 06:58

left and right are mainly arbitrary words that describe two actual leanings that people seem to be wired to prefer. one aspect that appears to be missing in the (part of the) conversation (that I can see) is that the left tends to be more collectivist (help your neighbor, no one left behind), whereas the right tends to be more individualist (survival of the fittest, "freedom" to exploit "suckers"). oddly (or interestingly) both sides claim to seek, defend and promote freedom, though authoritarian versions of both leanings will often conflate freedom with power to impose their notion of freedom on others. as most things, it's not black and white, but it's useful for frames of reference 2022-05-20 06:51

are these oct-onions compatible with Tor? can they be used on other months? 2022-05-20 06:20
