Biden says we won't be out for another year. I think they'll just keep us locked down indefinitely because it keeps power centralized in the government.

There's nothing more permanent than a temporary measure, and at this point our constitution is being used as toilet paper.

I just hopes we don't keep being extended because Fauci wants another fat paycheck

@wowfucktron

It's okay, that info won't reveal who I am or where I live, so it's fine.

Sorry, I couldn't help but laugh. Sounds a little far fetched but not impossible.

Senator James J. Barns: I propose giving emergency powers to chancellor President Biden

Politically charged Wikipedia articles on current topics like this read like Huffpost thonkpieces. The fact that nearly all of the references listed at the bottom of the cultural Marxism page are highly opinionated books and articles written by refutisutsu in the past five years speaks volumes about what are considered appropriate sources on the FreeTM EncyclopediaTMTM.

(Also, you've named your state in the past I'm pretty sure.)

I'm not forgetting it at all. But there are people who decide what stays up and what doesn't. You can see if an article is locked from public editing in the top right.
Wikipedia's administrators protect some pages from direct editing if they believe they are regularly subjected to "vandalism" - the addition of abusive language or falsehoods.

Still, there are never enough people in power to supress everything in every language, some of it will inevitably go unnoticed for too long.

I was going to read about the cultural marxism thing in spanish to see if it was different, but nope, it's pretty similar to the english version except shorter, less detailed and unprotected (from what I can tell, there's been some sort of edit war between a couple of randoms and some regular editors)

These are predominantly topics pertinent to majority-English-speaking countries though. Edit wars in other languages are ineffectual, and it wouldn't be much of a stretch to call them effectively irrelevant to the backing of the narrative at hand.

And even if the page of another language got out of hand, there'd be nothing stopping the wikimods from locking that page.

I don't think @tamerlane realizes how much info he's given out in regards to geolocating his city just from the supposed "throwaway" details he's spewed.
Observe this autism:

>temperature from that one thread
Midwest....hmmmm....
>large asian population
Near the Great Lakes, huh.
>college town
literally doxxing himself
>bradbury center far from where he lives
Found it.

Honest to Goodness, you can't keep a secret for long.

@tamerlane
The Mountain of God, huh?

Basically a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Dr. Seuss wrote a children's book mocking racists but it had some very not okay imagery in it. Long story short, wokers can't think beyond surface level thoughts and they successfully pressured the printing company to end publication of his book.

Republicans are mad because they're pointing out that this kind of behavior never ends well once its tolerated, Democrats are appealing to morality in order to shame Republicans, etc. the ride never ends.

Um not sure who to laugh at because both sides are being unbelievably stupid. I’ve stopped believing the words Democrats got mad after the whole doom eternal trailer fiasco

Who cares? It's a kids book. They go out of print all the time. What is Suess some kind of pinnacle of children's literature so advanced it MUST be preserved? Pfft

Ah yes the great cultural symbols, Motzart, Da Vinci and... Suess

Basically, six Dr Seuss books will no longer be published due partially to depictions of other cultures.

Most of them use the term "eskimo" instead of "innuit," which is considered offensive to them (There's a common misconception that the etymology comes means ""eaters of raw meat" when it actually means "someone who laces a shoe.") and conflating the Innuit with other polar tribes like Yupik and Aleut. Others are stereotypical displays of African tribes and Chinese people.

The six books:
"And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street”
“If I Ran the Zoo”
“McElligot’s Pool”
“On Beyond Zebra!”
“Scrambled Eggs Super!”
“The Cat’s Quizzer”

Really, I feel that it's destroying a piece of Americana because a small minority of people potentially could be offended, which I believe is morally wrong as it's erasing culture more or less, and I feel it's more important to keep them for the sake of remembering our history and preserving literary merit, instead of projecting our modern values onto the past. Reminds me of Ampleforth in 1984 being sent to The Ministry of Love because he couldn't change the word "God" because of the rhyme scheme.

And thus the Spainish Civil War continues in spirit

I've literally said I'm from Indiana my dude, it's just that my college is really far away from my hometown and I don't ever plan on living where my college is because I've come to miss nature.

The few people who are likely made about this are absolutely fucking idiots probably looking something to be mad about, republicans are people with nothing left in their lives for attempting to stop a private commapy for ceasing production of their own product claiming it’s destroying culturetm. I mean it’s a bloody private business choosing out of its own free will to stop production of a few books. I can’t imagine the kind of people who are that desperate to be triggered they go to FUCKING CHILDREN'S BOOKS.
