Middle of night insomnia thought: that the trope that people become more conservative with age had to do with steady progress being made over time. Add dentistry and pharma to Canada’s universal health care, add universal basic income as a bridge to universal basic housing and universal basic food, plus education to all levels of university and trades, and suddenly I’m a moderate conservative.

It was friggin' decades ago, but I still remember working at a giant-sized supermarket to get through college, and having to retrieve thousands of carts from every corner of the parking lot, in all kinds of weather. Often with bonuses of sticky foodstuffs all over the inside, left to ferment in the sun.

So I don't know how good a person it makes me, but I return the fucking carts. Often all the way to the front of the store. And silently judge all the assholes who don't.

I put a lead up tweet to this article in the Miscellany and it seems here last week :scatterbrain: but I’ve since read the article and find it important enough to signal boost:

From the linkthe idea that one can be courageous in a bad cause seems to somehow fall outside the domain of acceptable public discourse, despite the fact that much of what passes for world history consists of endless accounts of courageous people doing awful things.

The history of the 'gestures broadly at everything' meme, the perfect shorthand for our bad times.

Quote:
Part of the reason the phrase caught on, though, is that there’s a gesture of solidarity buried beneath the pessimism. Yes, so many things have gone so badly wrong that it would be a waste of time to list them, but the other reason it would be a waste of time is that most people already know which things have gone wrong, because we’re all wading through the same shit together. What’s more, since a frightening number of people have decided to respond to the ongoing collapses by sticking their fingers in their ears and denying anything is going wrong, it’s a compliment (sort of—the bar has been lowered to the center of the earth) to assume you’re speaking to someone who acknowledges objective reality. That belief—that we’re not alone in this, that other people can see what’s happening and will fight against it—is the foundation the future will have to be built upon.

I think about this a lot and I agree with the author. I don't know that I've ever seen "virtue signalling" used as anything but a presumptuous epithet.

Maybe the "Philosophy of Pettiness in Political Parties"

From:Canada’s Conservatives under fire for promoting “election rigging” conspiracy theories echoing Trump - ThinkPol : canada

Interesting breakdown of the 404 pages of various pplitical parties.:



Then some UK:
Page Not Found | Conservatives Childish
Page not found - The Labour Party That URL tho

And do they seriously do their 404 addresses as 'fuck'? lol?

The last one is wrong: both the truncated original and the "completed" quote come from the Torah, "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." However, it's still constantly (possibly always, including in the supposedly correct version) misused, since in the original context it was an upper limit on recompense, not a demand for equal bloodshed.
