    At what point do our moral obligations directly conflict with the Rule of Law?

    When does the need for doing The Right Thing™️ override the need for doing it The Right Way™️?

    Before you answer just know that I know that I don’t know that I’ll ever know the full and complete answer to that question


  • I can appreciate the thought experiment that is coming up with a framework for interplanetary timezones because some people probably enjoy the challenge.

    Simultaneously I posit that it’s ambitious as fuck to assume that humanity is going to get off this rock before we burn it to the ground, or to assume that whoever gets off this rock will have enough people and resources to start a society that can grow while the society on Earth also survives.

    Furthermore, as a software engineer, I say no thank you. Earth and other planets will function off of digital systems that never EVER communicate with each other, and we will be happy that way

    Just gonna say it’s really hard not to draw comparisons between the rhetoric I see across Hexbear and the rhetoric I saw on r/the_donald back in 2016. I’m not saying that as a judgment on the quality of ideas because there’s definitely a lot more communal-focused thought on Hexbear, but fucking hell for being a community that’s notably communist you all give zero shits about being a community that’s inviting to other people

    So to truly understand that this electoral system is a complete failure is to do nothing? Or is there an alternative I can do that you haven’t mentioned yet? I have seen a lot of people argue against voting like this “because it’s worthless” or “because it supports genocide” while I have yet to see anyone propose something to do that is more actionable or directly effective than voting.
