    The root argument of my statement was based on the right of consent and individual autonomy. If a community consents to gun ownership it's fine, gun ownership alone does not infringe on anyone's personal autonomy. If a community consents to enslaving others and hence breaking the victim population's consent I'd probably wage war on them. I'm not like Caltrek in that regard. Consent and autonomy only work if everyone mutually has them. By this logic, if someone enslaves som...

    If someone enslaves someone else they are hurting me and I have the right to defend myself, proactively. And yes, that means not-absolute pacifists and believers in non-violence can make war under conditions like the one I just mentioned.

Update: I made a beginners error and had to restart the backup. A parameter I set had the spider trying to archive sites that FTN linked to instead of just saving the links. The program committed suicide when it tried to archive wikipedia.

    The imgur folder alone is about 3.5Gb now.

    What was happening was the spider would catch a link like the twitter link Will posted up there, then it would try to archive that whole linked page to a depth of at least three links in every direction. So if there was a link on the twitter page it would capture that site too, and another one after it. Surprisingly it was able to do this with most pages but wikipedia had over 100,000 potential connections and HTTrack sorta died.

I think I’ve come to understand something about progressives, and their non-interest in the Russia investigation or Futurism (progressives I know): progressives want to “do things", but following the Mueller investigation is for spectators. Futurism is important only if it involves activism -- e.g. helping with climate change mitigation or education.

    I can see Putin being pleased, as Russia has a lot to gain from having progressives in charge. But they have even more to gain with Republicans in charge, especially regarding military partnerships and trade deals (military and trade deals aren't the bread-and-butter of progressives).

    Hold up, I thought it said it raised $88 million out of 100. Still, even $88 is $88 too much.

Sam Biddle (The Intercept): "Last month VR Systems, which sells election software to swing states, told me they were never hacked by Russia. According to today's indictment, that sure looks like a giant, persistent lie." https://mobile.twitter.com/samfbiddle/status/1017847876653846530

    This doesn't mean the voting machines were compromised; rather, the hackers seemed to have penetrated the voter validation system -- or at least that's the kind of solutions VR systems makes. Still pretty serious stuff.

    I moved back to California, went to DMV to get a California license. I was told I could also register to vote. So I did - electronically. I wnet to vote in the very next election and was told that I was shown as an inactive voter. Probably because I had moved back to the same address. Meaning my electronic registration did not take. Now maybe I just failed to use the computer interface correctly, or maybe...

In rome total war I finally conquered the area equivalent (more or less) to the real life roman empire as Numidia. I could never appreciate the size until now. It was colossal.

    Copyright laws are still necessary, there was a reason they were created and that reason is still applicable now. The issue with contemporary copyright laws is that they've become extended and harsh due to lobbying by companies like Disney who had hypocritically based their whole foundation on public domain stories so they could milk all money out of their IP, even when everybody who made Snow White is dead.

    Copyright law at the end of the day should promote creation, not stifle it, which was its purpose in the beginning.

Hey Will, if you're comfortable sharing I'd love to know. How many Gb and or Tb is the forum? You might not know exactly, but knowing the amount of storage you pay for would help me estimate when the mirror I'm making will be ready for everyone. For context the mirror has archived 19GB of data in the past 24hrs. This is also important because if the site is something insane like a TB I'm concerned that the limitations of the program might not back the site up before it gets de...
