This is the kind of thing I like to get out of these conversations. This could work at solving the problem, now all we need is a large political apparatus to push it.
So, systemically, how do you combat that? I'm on board with supporting reform, but complaining isn't the same as reform.
Keep in mind actively punish prosecutors for procedural violations won't happen for political reasons.
The ultimate optimist in me is secretly hoping that people who just want to get some good done in the world are playing the selfish idiots' paranoia to reduce a long-standing humanitarian issue.
The best thing is when they intentionally play off sane, informed people as denialistic nutters a la "Ancient Aliens"
Oh yeah, I'm real stung that a racist asshole called me a "SJW".
Fuck off and take your backwards beliefs with you.
Backups aren't the discussion here, data loss due to drive failure is.
Context means everything, and you can't use boring thoughtless mantras to answer every question.
Look kids, racism!
No seriously, that's some racist-ass shit. Fuck you, and your imagined colonial past. Things are substantially better now in the vast majority of developing nations than they ever were under colonial control.
Birth rates are down, death rates are down, education rates are up, diseases are getting eradicated, and assholes like you just want to imagine you know what's best for everyone.
RAID 15 absolutely protects against data loss.
And of course, there's always RAID, if you're the kind of person who actually seriously beats on your drives, and just can't deal with the loss of data ever.
Or, you know, I've actually read a bit about the conspiracies, and how their re-emergence is tied into the 60s anti-satanic panics, and the bullshit balance fallacy you're pushing isn't substantiated by any, you know, evidence.
What do hippies have to do with Illuminati nutters? The top few names that pop to mind when it comes to that nonsense are hard-right folks like John Todd or Des Griffin.
And Alex Jones, if you count relabeling the same conspiracy theories as "NWO".
Or, here's an idea: don't get involved with a misogynistic-and-violent-as-fuck movement, then try to claim moral superiority.
Making an argument from ethics can't be done from the low-road.
"No see, I joined after the misogyny, just like I joined the skinheads after the holocaust, and I really care about immigration".
The fact that being really outrageously offended over a metaphorical statement in an editorial is fucking petty is just icing on the stupid cake.
You joined a misogynistic movement. Accept that and learn from it, or see overly defensive users with mod points guarding you as a justification for how right you are. I don't care that much.
