Seriously tho, I love all y’all neopronoun havers, please send me your fave neos
Today 8 million Cubans are voting to enshrine a new family code, LGBT+ rights, and more in their new constitution; that is over 70% of their total population (11.33 million).
Back in the 2020 elections 158 million USAmericans voted out of a total population of 329.5 million--less than 48%.*
The number of Cubans voting right now is, weighted for population, nearly half again the number of Americans who voted in our highest-turnout election ever.
Remind me which country was the democracy, again?
* The 57% figure you may have heard only counts registered voters; many USAmericans are barred from voting for reasons legitimate (too young) and not (convicted criminal). Thus it is more legitimate to adjust for total population size, assuming similar breakdowns of the relevant demographics (age bracketing, mental health).
Collectivism vs Individualism
Much fuss has been made by many philosophers and theorists as to if we should concern ourselves more with the needs of individuals or collectives. These terms are often placed against each other as opposite points on a graph. Should we put first in importance the good of all, or that which is good for the unique individual?
This dichotomy is a false one. These concepts can coexist with each other very well, best evidenced by the simple fact that what is good for all will naturally be best for the most individuals. A group is nothing without its constituent parts, and an individual without others is likewise nothing. Collectivism and individualism, to consider one without the other is foolish. Both must be practiced, honestly and fully.
Only through careful consideration of everyone's individual need can we do whats best for the collective, and only through best supporting the collective can the most individuals fully realize themselves.

You know I'm getting really tired of the overwhelmingly popular notion that sex offenders "have it too easy".
The Sex Offender Registry is public, anyone on it has every aspect of their personal information online, allowing vigilantes to track you down and kill you and when they do, the cops aren't going to investigate your murder. Furthermore, being put on the SOR commonly disqualifies you from any form of rent, home ownership, or employment and thus most sex offenders become homeless.
If a Sex Offender does go to prison, chances are they will be killed purely for being a sex offender as every inmate will assume they are a child molester. I remember reading a story of a 20 year old man who was mutilated beyond recognition in prison after being put on the SOR for having sex with his 17 yo girlfriend.
Contrary to popular belief, you can be put onto the Sex Offender Registry for a vast variety of reasons, not just raping a child so assuming that all Sex Offenders are child rapists is illogical. Any form of indecent exposure can land you on the SOR. Back in the 2010s, there was a Texas teen who streaked at a football game and was put on the SOR as a result. He committed suicide because the courts would not take his name off the registry and yes, btw, getting taken off the Registry is virtually impossible to do even if you have mountains of evidence proving your innocence.
Furthermore, the SOR never actually reveals what crime each person on it committed but the major news networks have firmly convinced the U.S Population that every sex offender is a child rapist.
In Colorado, registered sex offenders are not allowed to own photographs of family members who are minors, nor are they allowed to even speak to minors. In Wisconsin, a registered sex offender was barred from entering a hospital where his 9-year-old son was undergoing surgery on the basis that he might rape his son.
People seem to think that the legal system is too leniant on sex offenders simply because sex offenders aren't suffering the punishments people want them to suffer. Just because a sex offender isn't being executed by firing squadron, burned at the stake, pulled apart by horses, sent to the gallows or thrown in a pit with 1000 hungry rats doesn't mean they aren't being punished.
It really bothers me that so many leftists, especially Anarchists buy into this bullshit and vigilante justice.
I fully believe the queen is dead and they just don’t wanna deal with a funeral before Christmas so they’re keeping her on ice (aka life support) till spring.
apparently the entire country has to do a 12 day long mourning and the BBC is legally banned from putting on any comedy show during that week AND they have to shut down the London stock exchange for one whole day... now I'm not saying they're weekends at Bernie's-ing that colonizer to keep the stock exchange open, but....
