What is the value of #truth in #politics?

Is the #lie not only belonging to the demagogues but also to the #politicians? What does this mean for the #essence and #dignity of #democracy? Isn't truth without #power as miserable as power, which can only be claimed with lies?

Torture doesn't work

It's a depressing fact, but many if not most people still believe that #torture actually works; they believe that torture is an effective way of extracting information from an uncooperative subject. The #science has been in on the subject since as far back as it's been called science, but the belief persists. Most people will agree that it is unethical, though many will still allow for it in "extreme situations", but even those that say it shouldn't be done still harbour the belief that it works.

But torture doesn't work. The science is crystal clear on the matter. In fact, torture is not only unlikely to get you any good information, it actually damages the subject so much that it harms your chances of getting information from them in the future - even when you start using actually effective interrogation tactics (and they do exist). So even aside from the #ethics (which, really, shouldn't be ignored), torture is a bad idea.

Don't use #Facebook!

source: https://www.buzzfeed.com/nitashatiku/facebook-trump-muslim-registry
Facebook, of course, already asks for and retains sensitive information about the #race, #religion, and #location of its users and allows advertisers to target narrow segments of people based on that personal information. #Government officials here and abroad already use the social network to track activists and dissidents.

"The whole idea from the start was to build a site that could kind of infiltrate the echo chambers of the alt-right," says Jestin Coler, whose company, Disinfomedia, is behind some fake news sites.

This is what I send to anybody who asks me about veganism

This is an English version of this note that I made in Spanish so a few links here are not there and vice-versa.
Going vegan was not a problem excepting for the social pressure. In fact, I think that this is the only difficulty that veganism has is confronting yourself and throw away all the excuses and myths about it. That's why I'm writing this and offer my help.

There's lots of people that don't know how to inform about this topic and that's leading veganism to be what it is: the best or the worst depending on how we discover it. It's not the same hearing about veganism because a few people in a supermarket or a restaurant to complain or a friend tells you or oneself research on the Internet.

In general, the people who decided to do not support these industries anymore took this decision because we saw how harmful it is: for the animals, for our health and the environment. Based on this, We th... mehr anzeigen

Programmers are having a huge discussion about the unethical and illegal things they’ve been asked to do

As computer programmers write code that runs everything from airplanes to pharmacy orders, there's a serious need for ethical training and guidelines.
 

So now that we have mass protests across the U.S. calling for the ouster of #Trump, should foreign governments start funneling weapons and arming the opposition to ignite a #civil war?

I heard the #CIA is operating this way ...

There is no such thing as western #civilisation

source: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/nov/09/western-civilisation-appiah-reith-lecture
Someone asked Mahatma #Gandhi what he thought of western civilisation, and he replied: “I think it would be a very good #idea.” Like many of the best stories, alas, this one is probably apocryphal; but also like many of the best stories, it has survived because it has the flavour of truth. But my own response would have been very different: I think you should give up the very idea of western civilisation. It is at best the source of a great deal of #confusion, at

The arms dealers profiting from #Europe's refugee #tragedy

source: https://www.tni.org/en/publication/border-wars
However there is one group of interests that have only benefited from the refugee #crisis, and in particular from the European Union’s investment in ‘securing’ its #borders. They are the #military and security companies that provide the #equipment to border guards, the #surveillance #technology to monitor frontiers, and the IT infrastructure to track population movements.

...
Most perverse of all, it shows that some of the beneficiaries of border #security contracts are some of the biggest arms sellers to the Middle-East and North-African region, fuelling the conflicts that are the cause of many of the #refugees.
