    I love how all these months after NFTs entered the public consciousness, nobody understands why they exist still.

    Have any of you ever had that sense of "I desperately want these badges and for my karma point balance to go up" when you first began using Reddit? I'm sure if you use the website regularly that it fades with time, but from time to time the urge to jump in and try for the Bellweather badge will hit or I'll lament over my banned 6 year old account.

    Anyway, the article is pretty short. You will need to download it, though.

    As for the paper itself, I'm not a fan of how similar to a New Yorker article it seems. It's properly cited and makes interesting statements (even if it stops short of entirely explaining what exactly Volkerpsychologie and German communal society looks like), but academics ought not to be polemicists. So says me, some rando, which means it's a supreme truth.

    My psych teacher recommended Odd Taxi to me a few weeks back. He called it a "perfect representation of the postmodern condition." in fact he would say this literally any time the show was mentioned

    It's a wonderful show, and the minute I get more than 30 minutes to myself, I'm going to binge the episodes I need to catch up on.

    I'm not entirely sure what to comment on when it comes to this paper. It feels more like a cooked steak than a living cow, if that makes any sense.

    This reminds me of the opposite feeling I had when I learned about a Spanish parking lot filled with cars never to be sold. I hate the idea of things being left to rot, but I also hate the idea of destroying them.

    Am I weighing these equally? Is there a solution within capitalism?

    I will use this paper to start researching the topic further (once libraries are open again...)! Thank you for contextualizing this for me.

    With that said, I wanted to clarify that the author of this paper slices the world between Western and Native, without considering the Orient. Or at the very least, that's my understanding of it. The pagans in my family similarly play with stories (not just religious ones) in order to act "best". Speaking from my gut, the paper does sound like the authors are overexaggerating the "otherness" of Natives.

    My eyes were set on the "responsible truths" creating a world to abide by even if it's not necessarily true, because it reminds me of Campbell's thesis in the Power of Myth. Being raised alongside Catholics with a very WWJD mindset leads me to believe that it's a bit strange to claim that Natives are unique for loosely interpreting (there's a better phrase) these myths and stories.

    Tildes is currently a pretty small site. It's a community as opposed to Reddit's more city-like structure and organization. Plus, each user had to make an appeal to enter the site. There will rarely be bad-faith actors (something you mention).

    What this means is that I don't think having any administrative mediation for arguments will be necessary. It would feel foreign and maybe a little patronizing. Every conflict here can either be moved past or worked through with the people in it should they choose. Alternatively, members of the Tildes community could call them out and say "Hey, you guys should really work it out."

    Hell, I think that the labels are worthless in general because you could just comment "high quality!" and make a greater impact on the person you're complimenting.

    A very interesting read. I'm not well-versed in epistemological canon (irony intended), but I notice that this article oversimplifies the world into a glob of "Natives" and "Westerners".

    Is it really true that all Amerindians use "responsible truths"? Is it true that all of the rest of the world believes that they've got it all figured out with only occasional disturbances from philosophers?

    To me the article seems just a bit premature, I guess. I could be entirely misled. I would love to hear more about this topic.
