Very well written. I feel the people who use biological arguments as.justification for an unjust world order are usually the ones who have a skewed, one-sided at best and completely wrong at worst understanding of the specific phenomena they are referring to. It doesn’t help that because of the way academia works under a capitalist system, academics who parrot the ideas that benefit the ruling class are the ones who live a comfortable, secure lifestyle and mistake their success for correctness. An example for this is Nazis using eugenics as a post hoc justification for their atrocities.

Evolution is as you mention also not very well understood by most. The description of “seeing what sticks” is very good because in most cases it is random mutations not produced by selection pressure but sustained as a result of it. Comparison of our current political economy with evolution is not really apt as well as you said. I can’t think of a species other than ours which exhibit the phenomenon of a small section of the population hoarding resources like a Tolkienesque dragon while the ecosystem is edging towards collapse. But as usual the ones who have a weak understanding of biological phenomenon are the ones making claims like this.

I also have doubts about how “ruthless” competition is a driver of evolution. I see evolution as an attritional process. The implication is that if the competition becomes too ruthless too fast, there is the possibility that a helpful adaptation simply won’t occer and the result is the extinction of species in question.

As an aside, write.as uses markdown format. So if you want the first line of the article to be a heading, you can write it as:

# Is aggressiveness inherent to humans?

The # means it’s a heading. Subheading can be denoted by ##, ### and so on. If you google “markdown guide”, you can see more examples of formatting options that are available, such as making text bold or italic.

Worst thing for me was how awful Facebook and Instagram were for my mental health. If you have insecurity issues you shouldn’t touch Facebook and Instagram (can’t speak of other platforms) with a ten feet pole.

I am scared of posting on stack exchange/overflow because I feel my question will just be marked as duplicate and binned.

Why is the version number 40 now?

Yeah I understand. I just wanted to say that it is not a good way to dispell the propaganda of capitalist countries as a bottomless well of cool things.

He should ideally be working or studying,

That sounds like something my dad would say. Not very convincing.

I remember recently reading a headline about Chinese youth getting disillusioned by American media. I feel this approach would be a lot more resilient.

JavaScript probably

From what I have read the reCaptcha given to you is easier or harder based on how Google profiles you (no idea how it works for hCaptcha). If Google suspects you to be a bot it will give you harder challenges and will probably serve you images that it confidently knows the labels of so it can judge whether you’re a not or not. Otherwise it’ll give you a mix of images in which it knows the labels to some and not the others and consolidate information from that.

Maybe it’s a problem caused by the package that provides /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-png.so?

You can check it by doing xbps-dpkg gdk-pixbuf. Reinstall by first updating, then doing xbps-install -f gdk-pixbuf.

That argument is based on the premise of false equivocation of Nazi Germany and China, a narrative in which equating deradicalisation camps with concentration camps plays a large part. China is not an expansionist state. They claim Tibet, Taiwan, which is a separate discussion but they have no intentions of expanding beyond that. They haven’t been in any war in the last fifty years. Similar argument could be used to justify Americans fighting in the Vietnam war which I am sure you know was not a justified invasion.

Could be because industrial farming drains the soil of nutrition and synthetic fertilizers are not enough to replenish the replenish the soil properly.

Idk just speculating here.

Do you think Reddit admins' identities should be public knowledge?

Anyone tried creating an init.lua for neovim 0.5.0 nightly?

How to deploy a CodeIgniter application?

Noob question but here it goes. The place I work at has a website written in CodeIgniter, a PHP framework. The creator of the codebase was contracted and when he gave me a demo, the code was just sitting in /home/www-user/public_html of the VPS and to show the code and make changes to it, he used …
