Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

Beat the Right Wing Framing

I can't remember if I posted this at the time, but this has been sitting in an open browser window for almost 2 months now, waiting for me to read it again.

Beat the Right Wing Framing: How to Make the Case for a Better, Fairer Economy | naked capitalism

Quote:
oo often, people on the left seem to believe that their team is obviously more virtuous than the other side, and they seem to regard having to sell their case as somehow beneath them. The assumption of moral superiority also leads them to dismiss people who differ with them. That may be emotionally satisfying but it is a lousy political strategy.

While some are too deeply invested in their views to be open to new ideas, the reality is that despite “liberal” having been turned into a borderline dirty word, Americans for decades have polled as consistently supporting “progressive” positions, such as strengthening Social Security and Medicare, taxing the rich, reducing war spending, spending more on infrastructure, strengthening social safety nets. Even though the US has become more conservative, the press also depicts the US as more conservative than it really is. So there is more opportunity to move the debate than you might think.

All these Verizon owned companies are now "Oath", and it is terrible.
Apr 18, 2018 - 4:07 PM - by specious_reasons
I still have a Yahoo Mail account. It is the account I use for companies and charities to send me stuff (including :ff:).

Yesterday when I started my browser, my default homepage (Yahoo Mail) exploded into something called Oath, my initial thought was that Yahoo was hacked by someone with really bad taste. I figured out it's just Verizon's rebranding, as the eye-straining animation was telling me. I eventually found my way back to Yahoo Mail and fixed my bookmark and homepage settings.

This morning, the same thing happened. It took multiple tries to get "mail.yahoo.com" to actually stop bursting the Oath homepage. Then, I had to agree to some new EULA, which probably rivals Facebook's for invasiveness.

This is making me ask why I'm still using my Yahoo email account.
