2021.11.30 16:17 Creeemi Question on Marxism and Morality
So at the moment Im takinng a 101 Ethics course in philosophy class. We talked about many of the most well known moral theories, mostly Utilitarism (like Peter Singer), Metaphysical Essenntialists (Kant, Rawls), and Aristotelian theories (Aristotle, Nussbaum). Most of them are annoying as they are of course completely ignorant of class conflict and dont see the constant internal contradiction of society that is class struggle. Now as Marxists we generally consider Morality a useless and even deceitful and bourgeis category, made to justify oppression and keep the oppressed in the illusion of working toward some noble goal (think of chrisitan morality as just one example). Trotzky - who we might not have much sympathy for here, but who give credit where its due - put it quite succinctly in Terrorism and Communism when he wrote his famous quote:
But what then becomes of the 'sacredness of human life'? Does life cease to be sacred when it is a question of people talking another language, or does Kautsky consider that mass murders organized on principles of strategy and tactics are not murders at all? Truly it is difficult to put forward in our age a principle more hypocritical and more stupid. As long as human labor power, and, consequently, life itself, remain articles of sale and purchase, of exploitation and robbery, the principle of the “sacredness of human life” remains a shameful lie, uttered with the object of keeping the oppressed slaves in their chains.So Morality is something weaponized and used for ulterior motives and seems to have no place in a materialist philosophy. And yet nonetheless we communnists do not wholly abstain from a language of morality. The bourgeois eliites are "morally bankrupt", their actions are "unethical" whereas revolutionaries might be fighting for a "just cause" or "have the moral high ground" (idk we dont really say that but you get the point).
If it is a question of seeking formal contradictions, then obviously we must do so on the side of the White Terror, which is the weapon of classes which consider themselves “Christian,” patronize idealist philosophy, and are firmly convinced that the individuality (their own) is an end-in-itself. As for us, we were never concerned with the Kantian-priestly and vegetarian-Quaker prattle about the “sacredness of human life.” We were revolutionaries in opposition, and have remained revolutionaries in power. To make the individual sacred we must destroy the social order which crucifies him. And this problem can only be solved by blood and iron.

2021.11.30 16:17 alfred1414 Head Kore 87, FISHER ranger 94 FR or Atomic vantage 90 ti??? Help!!
I have looked at some skis lately, and I have been able to select 3 models, but I don't know which one is the most suitable for me. It has come down to the following: HEAD Kore 87 (size 180), FISHER Ranger 94 FR (size 185 or 177, i dont know which one) and ATOMIC Vantage 90 TI (size 184), all with MARKER Griffon 13 ID bindings.
I am 185 cm tall and 75 kg, and I would call myself light advanced skier. I have a mixed use of piste and off-piste, and sometimes I like to hit a few jumps and tricks in the park, but nothing serious. Because I have such a mixed use, it is important that the skis have a versatile use, but still being playful and fun both on and off piste. Do you have any tips for choosing the correct ski, i am also open for other suggestions.
My budget is 4-500 euro, and the three skis I am considering are all on sale right now.

Na RTS-u se prikazuje serija Advokado,u prvim epizodama mi nije bilo ništa jasno ali kako odmiču epizode čini mi se da se radi o konačno genijalnoj humorističkoj seriji na našoj televiziji a da nije po šablonima već viđenim milion puta

2021.11.30 16:17 sjw_7 Do i need planning permission for putting a window in a garage?
I am in the process of buying a new house which has an attached double garage. There is a door in the side and the normal up and over doors at the front. I want to add a window to the back but want to check first if i need to get any kind of permission to do so?
The garage will stay as a garage and its just to let in more light so its not a change of purpose or anything like that.
Is it a simple question or is it more complicated than i think it is?

2021.11.30 16:17 Ur_mom_guy_wich_one Who should fight against a wing Chun practitioner?
Hello there, I plan on working on a fan fiction since I really waited for a long time for a wing Chun Master to fight (wich didn’t happen). Who would be the best match for a martial art like wing Chun for both mentality as well as fighting style? How should I design the fighter? Should I invent not one but two new characters to fight each other? I‘m aware of the fact that wing Chun is pretty weak on its own so I decided to let hin have another martial art. Wich one should it be? I thought of something simple like kickboxing of karate. Please let me know your opinion in the comments.

2021.11.30 16:17 GO-GET-IT-200PPS Vaccine efficacy rates for Omicron
We all know they are racing to get best numbers out through testing and be the first to announce they are the better vaccine versus Omicron. Theoretically speaking...let's say Pfizer & Moderna and others come out and say current vaccine is 45% - 50% effective (I'm sure it will also come with an announcement a tailored made vaccine is in development & funding would be needed LOL). Then of course Inovio comes out a week later and shows 75% - 80% effective. Do we make major headlines or does it just get overlooked & overshadowed by big pharm again? OR does it make major headlines putting Inovio in the spotlight for future solutions to this problem? Honest opinion here...in this scenario ... do we get brushed under the rug & pulled out and placed front & center with the front runners?

2021.11.30 16:17 Kgxo123 Chemical pregnancy or not? Female age 22
Just gonna jump right into this. September 25th I had an abortion then two weeks later I took two pregnancy tests and they were negative. Now fast forward to October 30th I got a normal period lasted 5 days my normal cycle length of 28 days. This last Friday November 26th to be exact I took a pregnancy test which was positive. The positive line was faint (not as dark as my last ) but I chalked it up as to taking it early as it would’ve been only 3 weeks. I took another test on Sunday exact same positive with a faint line but not faint enough to miss even at a first glance. (Could see the faint line on camera as I had sent a picture to my boyfriend) I took the test as I was having symptoms of pregnancy same as the last (headaches, nauseous, lightheaded) i had spotted a few days prior to being due for my period on the 26th and that never came. It’s important to note I am NEVER late always on the 28th day mark have been for years. This past Monday November 29th I woke up with major bleeding, when I get my periods I initially always start out light and barely need anything until the 2nd day. I immediately felt sick, back pain stomach pains I never experienced before and was extremely lightheaded. So I instantly booked an appointment to the gynecologist for an emergency visit. I told them everything they did an ultrasound the doctor didn’t see anything and she mentioned it was probably a chemical pregnancy. They took blood work and I just got my results back that my HCG level was a 3 which means not pregnant. would that mean I didn’t have a chemical pregnancy? Or it’s just that my hcg levels decreased over the past few days by the time my blood work was taken? Just curious to know. Thanks.
