Social Justice Warriors are a nuisance to open source projects. They demand the entire software be rewritten so as to not offend them. And you can never please them even if you rewrite everything like they demand. I won’t go into the examples.
Until recently programming used to be considered a low-status job like being a plumber and nerd at the same time. But now programming has become cool in some circles, as has nerdiness and geekiness.
As a rule, SJWs avoid low-status jobs. This is why they are not complaining about the lack of female plumbers.
Hence, the best way to avoid SJWs from your project is to make the project uncool, and even esoteric. e.g. No one is going to complain untyped lambda calculus as sexist anytime soon, even if a combinator is called a penis. This is because untyped lambda calculus hasn’t found its way into T.V. shows and is not considered a high-status endeavour.
This is why our ancestors kept certain lines of work uncool because that way they could select for people genuinely interested in the low-status job, and not in it because it is cool now.
People who are in it for the cool, are the ones who want political correctness because political correctness was always cool regardless of what society was in operation.
Of course, if making something uncool does not help, we can always resort to secrecy and secret societies.
Mainstream media was inundated with a paper claiming large conspiracies are impossible. But now it turns out the paper has a basic mathematical flaw that even the author and the editor concede.
Summary of the flaws:
- The only model that makes a substantive original contribution is completely flawed.
- The only reason this didn’t alter the conclusions is because the methodology was so flawed it failed to test the model adequately.
- Without the flawed models, what is left is simply a standard probability curve and not an original conclusion.
- The values plugged into that remaining model are, in any case, completely unsupportable.
Beyond that my principal concern is how this paper could ever have passed peer review. A non-monotonic cdf is such a fundamental error (it implies an underlying pdf with negative components, that is negative probabilities) that it should have been immediately obvious to any competent reviewer that the paper could not possibly be correct. The error is not hidden: the author quite openly discusses the non-monotonic behaviour and its supposed significance, and depicts non-monotonic cdf curves in figures 1 and 4.
When a journal publishes a paper containing a trivial, obvious and fundamental error then legitimate questions can and should be raised about how this happened.
Christianity differs from this pattern because it reveals this pattern and the victim points to his own innocence. Girard argues this lays the foundation for a society which is willing to accept the innocence of the victim and perhaps the premise of “innocence until proven guilty”. This gives way to better methods of justice, and a better society which values the underdog. Perhaps the modern political correctness movement is a move against this trend.
Planned Parenthood is one of the most influential NGOs around the world.
Attempts to tarnish them rarely succeed. For example, the videos released recently showing them to engaged in fetus trade was censored on most websites. The videos have been claimed to be a forgery by most mainstream media. Mass media only shows edits and commentary about the videos, without the videos themselves.
Contrast this with heavily edited beheading videos released by SITE Intelligence Group claiming to be from ISIS. They are never claimed to be a forgery even though they look more CGI than Planned Parenthood videos.
An obscure story about Cecil The Lion was given a lot of media time to prevent any blame on Planned Parenthood CEO, Cecile Richards. Hiding Cecile using brouhaha about Cecil was well-crafted misdirection at work.
Why is there so much protection for Planned Parenthood?
Here is why: The entirety of progressive society is founded on the idea of declining birth rates.
As you can see from the flowcharts, without falling birth rates, made easier by Planned Parenthood service, progressivism will be weakened.
Now PP is suing the people who release the video about fetus trade. I am sure they will win. It is impossible to fight PP without destroying progressivism in another way.
Carroll Quigley thinks when citizens can become soldiers with little training, and when weapons are cheap and easy to use, it leads to Democracy.
But that doesn’t explain why when CIA funnels cheap weapons and easy to use weapons into nations, democracy doesn’t automatically happen. Also countries like India got democracy without citizen weapons.
