a related analogy I've also found useful: bigots and the like need to be banned for the same reason that you can't be a creationist in an upper level biology class. at some point the conversation is being held back because while the class is attempting to discuss molecular genetics, some clown in the back row keeps holding up the class with questions about how come there's still monkeys if we evolved from monkeys

@mike The episode "Man" leaves me wishing for another episode on "Masculinity". Is there time in y'all's scheduled programming for exploring the art of manliness in such a way that doesn't prop itself up with ego and patriarchy?

@SchrodingersCuriousCat it's not said At All
It used to be that it was said once a year by the high priest in the holy of holies on Yom Kippur but then the temple got burned down and we replaced the priests with the rabbi system. The kohanim's descendents don't know how to pronounce it
Hey fedi- I used to work at a thrift store; and if you are donating some old books, here are some that aren't worth the resources spent transporting, sorting, and pricing them because they just don't sell:
- best seller novels like HP, Twilight, The Hunger Games, etc. So many of these are donated that most don't move
- self-help books, especially best sellers, for the same reason
- Chicken Soup for anyone's soul
thank you and boosts +
Need perspectives on mindfulness
As I'm cultivating greater compassion, nonjudgement, and love for myself and others, it feels like I have brought into existence a degree of emotional awareness that doesn't correspond to my upbringing and past experiences much at all.

religion ✝️, anarchism
The antagonists of the New Testament included two separate kings of Judea, religious authorities, religious fundamentalists, Roman tax collectors, Roman police, a Roman governor who was "only doing his job" and thus denied responsibility for the horrible state-sponsored execution he ordered, the Roman empire in general really, and a fucking snitch
and you're telling me Christianity isn't inherently anti-authoritarian?
