My guess is they get real food and real healthcare.
The average persons experience with healthcare is getting the most money pried out of them for as little actual help as possible. This is just what happens when healthcare is for profit. Then we eat the cheapest mass produced shit that we vote for with our dollar, because it’s designed to be addictive, and big food industries lobby to keep us as misinformed about the situation as possible.

In other good news, about 90 or so House Republicans have basically assured reporters that they would vote to expel George Santos. In addition to all Democrats this basically means there is enough votes expel him from Congress when the vote happens…sometime this week or so..
Speaking of House Republicans, more an more are joining the chorus in expressing disapproval at Speaker Johnson. Mostly due to him being wishy washy on his supposed promises to them and also in his efforts to keep the government at least operational. It’s likely they won’t oust him like they did his predecessor but, well, McCarthy didn’t last a full year either.
Elon Musk reportedly told advertisers who stopped associating with Twitter to “Go fuck [yourselves]”.
Yeah that’ll show them.

Given the number of tweets giving negative answers or bemoaning the fact that he was still alive they’ve posted over the past three years, now that the script has finally flipped, they can probably still milk the opposite for a while longer before deciding they’re done methinks.

So I don’t frequent TikTok except for shorts that make it onto YouTube, and apparently there’s a rather distressing trend going on over there (yes, I have some idea of how little that narrows it down).
There’s a growing ring of “dating advice” gurus for women that are peddling archaic and extremely toxic attitudes that are harmful to men and women alike, but repackaged as something new, exciting, and “empowering.”
To summarize, these TikTok dating coaches are themselves women. Through flashy, infectious videos, they teach the young women in their audience that:
  • Men are only ever going to let them down, so they might as well focus on finding a man with money to live off of, as that will be their only redeeming quality.
  • They aren’t supposed to have sex outside of wedlock, because that will “ruin” them for their future, rich husband.
  • Sex workers are “run through” and deserve to be scorned and shamed for not prioritizing landing a “high value man.”
  • Basically play into everything incels believe about how women work.
Yeah no, the “loneliness crisis” is only gonna get worse before it gets better.

That just seems like yet another rightwing-led astroturf campaign to push a trend that isn’t there. Next we’re going to find out that they’re all paid actresses hired by a “Conservative, pro-America and pro-FREEDUM” PAC.
They want young men to feel empty and angry, it’s how you get school shooters and political assassinations.

The problem with a lot of people isn’t a lack of dating options, but a lack of meaningful interaction with just plain anyone, and not because a lack of social skills. We live in a world that’s designed to isolate and work the shit out of you. A world designed to prey on your insecurities and make you feel alone in a group of people.
Our culture is all about buying shit, ofc some scam artist is going to sell a guide on how to not form meaningful relationships.
It’s not men or women who are bad, it’s a world that’s only designed to regard both men and women as a resource, when we are in fact people. Dating gurus see you as a resource too, and they probably don’t have good interpersonal relationships themselves.

@BlitztheDragon
the biggest issue I see is people raised on the internet and not by loving families / community. It always comes down to the lack of self-worth and affirmation.
Genuine appreciation of self and of others are only found thru real interactions with real people, in a safe space.
These grifter don’t teach you how to practice emotional intelligence, and when they do, it’s to manipulate others into perpetuating whatever narrative they selling.

Yeah, real life interaction is very important.
And of course they don’t. If they actually helped you improved, than they’d lose a sucker. They don’t want to help you, just take your money. Coffeezilla explained as such in his video on Andrew Tate’s course.

That’s the biggest problem in America.
We lack community, third spaces. We not only are no longer religious, but we also lack spaces where people are just allowed to exists without working or buying anything.
Our economy is powered by maintaining a population of people who do not have their basic needs met. People without access to affordable housing or health care.
Because of this if we weren’t Islamophobes we would have mosques that fill up with homeless drug addicts. People with nowhere to go, and no health care basically.
So any place that people can just be comfortable gets chained up, steel shutters and locks. We actually invented concrete spikes to keep homeless people from sleeping. Hostile architecture.
That’s right, America will soon look like Bowsers castle.
Edit: As George Carlin put it, the poor population is maintained to scare the shit out of the middle class.

Well said.
I believe in capitalism but god, it really makes it hard to argue for it, especially the version that runs on wage slaves, extortion and scare tactics.

Kurzgesagt actually put out a wonderful, if a little controversial, video recently that talks about how we’re all a little too interconnected.
That we really weren’t socially evolved enough to handle the current incarnation of social media and mass communication.
It sort of fucks with our perception of community in a way that goes beyond tribalism.
We were not ready for the “digital town square”.

I think I read an essay similar to that a couple years ago, and that notion makes a lot of sense. Technology and society are evolving and expanding far faster than the human brain can, and we’re seeing the consequences.

Basic resources should be free. Clean water, heat, electricity, and subsistence food should just be available.
If you want fancy things, or unique things, or artisanal things, that’s where money can be generated.
Anyone should be able to drink fresh water, stay warm, and be able to get enough nutrition to function during the day.
