  • Very different context there. I’d much prefer a Bernie (minus the Israel stance) or an AOC, but some points in history call for pragmatism. I’m a Brit anyway, so not really my circus.

    I’d like to hear what you think is right in the current situation. Throwing quotes and platitudes without serious discussion of the options is a shallow discussion.

    You prefer Trump or Kamala? Do you genuinely see another option? I hardly see the overthrowing of the capitalist class is happening in the next 4 months. What do you think is best for the Palestinian cause, Kamala or Trump?

    Plus, Kamala in the vid is talking to AIPAC, in a very different context. What do you genuinely expect a politician to say?

  • No matter how bad she is, she’s against a guy who tried to recognise Jerusalem as the sole capital of Israel.

    These Dem’s are poor, these Republicans are horrific. Discrediting Kamala only serves to reduce Dem turnout and increase likelihood of a Trump win. Do you really want that?

    Trash her after the election, we do not have time for this now.

    Oh, and sharing x content, and driving traffic there, to a website who’s owner is supporting the capitalist class is hardly beneficial to anyone.

  • Yes, and you do it at the point you need to work on that feature. The business pay for it when they want the change.

    You do not pay for the refactor with your time, if the company won’t pay to fix their code. Just make it clear the risks and how bad it could be if you carry on with duct tape fixes.

    You have to be strong and firm and not agree to hacks. You need to work with your team to ensure you’re on the same page rather than getting undermined by cowboy dev claiming he can do the feature in 2 days when it needs 2 weeks to do the necessary work.

  • Many studies have looked into this, culture etc. For example how people conducted themselves in say Nazi Germany or during the Rwandan genocide.

    Simply trying to understand how so many folk can commit such atrocities.

    Knife crime is viewed differently in areas with high amounts of it. It’s more shocking in an area it doesn’t exist. In an area where folk growing up knowing or seeing people being stabbed, it’s seen very differently.

    I don’t think juries should necessarily take it into consideration, but understanding situations, it’s quite relevant. If you’ve stepped into both poor and rich areas, you’ll understand the differences.
