Google vet’s new Candid app for anonymous sharing puts trolls in their place.
Bindu Reddy wanted a social app where she could say what she really thought, hear unfiltered responses and tamp down the volume on trolls.
Clinton’s running mate is a catholic “personally against abortion, but…” writes informed consent and parental consent restrictions against the practice. He favors deregulating banks and businesses.
Meanwhile, Trump (at one particular moment) said he was “pro choice in every respect.”

I occasionally encounter people on gaming forums who talk about “hardcore gamers” as if there’s some kind of accepted definition of the term. You know: “hardcore gamers are gamers who play more than 25 hours a day and who only drink Red Bull intravenously” or something like that. The problem with such ‘definitions’ is that they rely heavily on vague concepts, which means it’s very easy to play with your interlocutor’s head by recursively asking them for definitions, complaining that their terminology is imprecise. That rhetorical technique is the real reason they killed Socrates.
The sovereigns of this world in associating the Deity in the government of their realms, in pretending to be His
lieutenants and His representatives upon earth, in admitting that they hold their power from Him, must necessarily accept His ministers as rivals or as masters.
If you have a nerdy person, or a philosopher, on your Annual Day of Shameless Commerce list, you may wish to consider this little-known masterpiece from the 70s.
I plan to periodically review books here, and perhaps even movies or other media. So I feel that I should have a policy about that…
