How do people not understand that Biden is not changing direction on this and that even if he did the damage is already done for many?

There is no “appealing” version of the Biden admin. The only realistic long-term strategy is allowing zionists to become politically untenable. Democrats in a position of privilege need to experience the consequences of their dead end politics, they simply cannot be made to understand any other way.

This election is already lost to the extreme right, regardless of who wins. The best long-term option is to aim for what will most quickly lead to reform within the Democratic party. The “lesser of two evils” strategy has been tried for 40+ years and has only resulted in failure after failure.

The only thing that could make it more trustworthy is to have a picture of Zuckerbergs empty-eyed alienoid face there trying to approximate a reassuring smile.

Unfortunately the only way I see Democrats coming around is by demonstrating to them in material terms that zionists cannot win elections, that there’s a certain point beyond which you cannot vote shame democratic voters into supporting or overlooking this kind of evil.

I’m not someone who wants Trump, I personally am in a group that will be directly and severely effected by a GOP presidency before most, but the only way to get the Democratic party on a track for a future that isn’t just “not as far right as the GOP” is to let them learn that neoliberalism is an abject failure and has no future. That it’s unteneable to hold people’s rights hostage as a threat.

If the party doesn’t realize that then we are going to just continue sliding further to the right until a few cycles from now it’s the same as if Trump had won anyway.

It’s obvious at this point the games aren’t a scam, they’re being delivered, bit it does look like the culture at CIG has toxic elements within it.

It’s not a big surprise though, there’s a history of nepotism within the community management side, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s similar within the dev sector of the company too.

Will Leverett is the head of player relations at CIG. Prior to this he did community management for League of Legends so…you know…

In terms of the layoffs though they’re just following the same dumb trend in the rest of the tech industry – firing people to make it seem like they have “cost discipline”.

Nah, games take a long time to develop, especially doing a single player and mmo in tandem. Starfield alone took a decade, take that and add an MMO on top with a live environment to support and it’s pretty obvious it will take a long time. Plus building a production company from the ground up.

There’s plenty to criticize CIG for but the scam claims are old hat at this point.

I’m not defending it, I’m just saying anyone with eyes can see it’s not a scam at this point, whether you like the game or not.

raccoona_nongrata,
@raccoona_nongrata@beehaw.org avatar

Yes…because it did. You’re literally just going to be in denial because it undermines your belief about how long a game should take?

I’d honestly feel more comfortable if they didn’t look human…

It also normalizes pedophilia, whether it’s an avatar or an AI rendering of a child, it’s part of an abusive culture that should be confronted.

raccoona_nongrata,
@raccoona_nongrata@beehaw.org avatar

Nope, not comparable. Sexualizing children’s bodies is wrong and should be stopped wherever people try to do it.

raccoona_nongrata, (edited )
@raccoona_nongrata@beehaw.org avatar

God damn lemmy is disgusting sometimes.

Any media that depicts children as sexual is promoting pedophilia, which is harmful to real children. Children are not sexual and should not be depicted that way, people who have pedophilic desire need psychological help, not to be placated by catering to their fantasies. Catering to their fantasies emboldens them to act.

While no individuals should ever be that wealthy to begin with, it’s good to see some of them are capable of letting it go in their old age and returning it to the community rather than selfishly hording it.

This was kind of expected when they withdrew from Avdiivka; the Ukrainians are falling back to their pre-determined defense lines – the village in the article is between their defense network and Avdiivka, where the Russians have a lot of tall structures which allow them to fire into the abandoned villages.

Just to clarify, since it makes it sound like the Ukrainians lost more ground than expected.

raccoona_nongrata,
@raccoona_nongrata@beehaw.org avatar

Not “again”, this was anticipated as part of the loss of Avdiivka, Ukraine is just pulling back to the fortified defense lines they had prepared, which are beyond some villages in a no man’s land.

I was glad they took the time to dedicate an episode to Bill’s relationship, in the game it was just a note you find, but it’s a part of Bill’s story that really illustrates his character and why he is the way he is in many ways.

Glad to see Offerman standing up for decency, though it’s not a giant surprise since he’s always seemed like a good guy.

I kind of wonder if Bluesky, while it is sus, will help get people more comfortable with the concept of federation, which will lead to more people looking into federated platforms

Sucks to see Vice die, they might be kind of neo-libby at times but they did some legitimate investigative journalism. Crazy to see journals and news groups all making this same mistake and destroying themselves to please investors.

And democrats likely still won’t legislate abortion rights once in office, because abortion is just too easy of an issue for them to use as leverage on voters. They proved that under Obama when they had a supermajority and immediately abandoned their promises to encode abortion rights.

raccoona_nongrata,
@raccoona_nongrata@beehaw.org avatar

Yes, the only conclusion I keep coming back to is that the Supreme Court as an institution is a fundementally flawed and anti-democratic one that needs total reform to avoid it ultimately destroying our democracy.

In the meantime, packing the courts needs to be made the issue for democratic voters. It should be a must for any candidate to support it.

Seems like a bit of a gray colored area, we’ll just have to plow through.

Oh they tried to school me right; believe you me.

This is the real answer. Without abortion and maybe guns, Dems would become basically indistinguishable from your standard GOP schlub.

Solving those problems means they’d actually have to start convincing people why they shouldn’t get voted out for the progressive whos pushing for healthcare reform and getting corporate money out of politics. They don’t want to have to fight that fight, they like the Citizens United money hose same as the republicans.

Why the hell were they discharged from the hospital with life threatening head trauma?

Alternate headline: “Democrats awaken from a multi-decades long drooling stupor at the wheel of a speeding vehicle and realize that securing the courts is important.”
