Dream on. People will just keep staring at the idiot box, and possibly complain a little louder on Twitbook. The fact is, people really will lap up whatever's thrown at them, and watch the ads too, even if they're just watching so they know when to unmute the sound. People want to consume, and they don't want to put any effort into thinking about it.
You have too much empathy with her. You need to stop that and protect the MANY innecent people that she will inevitably screw over for the remaining decades of her career unless you actively prevent her from doing so.
Neither of them are actually CS problems.
Why are you not already reporting her to the relevant authorities and seeking a lawyer for malpractice/damages?
Your problems are twofold.
1. You think libertarian is a synonym for conservative,
2. You believe that now that leftist voices don't drown out all others, that Slashdot is now a "conservative echo chamber." This is the response of people who are not used to having their ideas challenged.
Slashdot has always leaned left. Now it's centrist. And that bothers you. Ars Technica is leaning further left these days, so go hang there. They have a user moderation system that's dumber than Slashdot's, but at least you won't get the banhammer for irking any of the hired moderators on the articles anymore.
Indeed. This system is a fraud that only replaces multiple welfare programs with cold, hard cash. It might reduce costs of administration, but it isn't basic income.
I would like to see a basic income program that truly pays everyone, but with the ability for those who don't need it to opt out. Let's see the wealthy progressives literally put their money where their mouths are.
This is clearly need-based in thinking.
If one person can get by on $X, it doesn't mean two people need $X*2. Housing is normally the greatest cost to a household. My rent or mortgage has always been my biggest bill, even when I lived in a dump in the 1990s. I had a new car, and the rent was still double the car payment.
