Comment Re:Not a social safety net, please... (Score 4, Insightful) 635

Purpose, probably useful, sure, I however do not understand why purpose seems to equal payed labour to you (and lots of other people). Are you suggesting voluntary work, or just being social to your neighbor has no purpose? I use these examples, because it is not certain that people even have the capability to always find "more meaningful" work if the "repetitive menial" labour has been automated. And why stop there? I suggest we are entirely capable of automating even "more meaningful" work. And then what?

Figuring our what purpose people have, if they do not need to work for basic Income, is one of the goals of experimenting with it.

And whoever those people are, they have zero to do with this article. Im also pretty sure, that if I would to look up wtf you are talking about, Ill find a lot of misogyny, and perhaps a few loud mouthed females with (for you) radical ideas. Not "feminazi's".

I for one, welcome our new load mouthed females. Perhaps they will counter weigh the foul mouthed males.

Nice flamebait. First of all, there are no Feminazi's. That derogatory term is mostly used by male chauvinists who want to enforce old fashioned gender -roles-. There are feminists, and they hold various ideas about equality. Second, the research is not about gender, its about changing brain functions of mothers.

Let me rephrase that for your tiny tiny male chauvinist brain: no feminist ever said that men and woman were created biologically identical. Most feminist do agree that most gender ROLES are a social construct. Most feminists see the fact that some people feel like they have been born in the wrong sexe, and therefore identify themselves as a different gender.

Im not sure the slashdot moderation does what you say it does. The meta-moderation seems to work pretty well, as in, obvious trolls from both nationalist alt-right and SJW left are often modded down. Topical opinion on both side seems to float up. Not to say it always works.. but it works better then thumbs up, down or other shitty yes/no moderation.
