Pale Moon has its extinction event earlier. Already killed jetpack add-ons, for no reason other than "well other people should just remake their add-ons for us".

It went from solid alternative to firefox to firefox-lite with serious problems due to ridiculous engine change with all the same "developers full of themselves telling everyone else to change to fit their idea on how browser should work"-problem.

That was actually back during Cordoba Caliphate and Ottoman Empire.

Something that residents of young nations like US really don't understand. Civilizational warfare is measured in centuries and millenia. And right now, it's another time when muslims have the upper hand. We're still in a much better situation than, say, in 1500s.

You know, long before you nation ever came into existence.

Considering that most of the world lives by the same principles as before, and state of some Western countries in this regard is a massive outlier, I'll readily take that bet provided we agree on large enough statistical sampling. My own opinion/analysis is that current state is actually a reaction to female employment. This is on the rise world wide as people realised that it's actually very economically efficient to push women into employment. It drives the costs of employment down for men, as women compete with them. This does however accrue what is essentially a social debt within society, which generates destructive impulses among both sexes. We're observing the effects in most feminist of Western societies already, where social costs (which are essentially interest on aforementioned social debt) are starting to eclipse economic benefits.

My point goes well beyond the current "toxic feminism" debate, and well into how our species is actually designed by evolutionary process to work. Again, there's a reason why both me and you have twice as many female ancestors as we have male ones.

Again, studies do not support this view, and support the opposite view.

The likely reason lies in the fact that we cannot deny our own biology. Males in our species exist to provide for females, while females function as selectors from pool of available males for who gets to procreate. That's why all of us humans living today have twice as many female ancestors as male ones.

Overwhelming majority of people in those workplaces are staunchly anti-gun and anti-second amendment. I follow a few gun channels on youtube, and seen grassroot level interviews with people who used to work in those companies talking about the issue. For example, apparently there is a small pro-gun group in google, but it's constantly under pressure.
