XKCD doesn't understand free speech—or the difference between legal and moral rights
The cartoon Its mouseover text: "I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is tha...

+Sean McCrohan As for your earlier questions, no one needs to be invited. But once invited, silencing them is silencing them.

+Garritt VS In this capitalist society, people have a right to define how others use their property—though that's a dangerous argument, because it's the argument racists used for having double-standards on serving white and black folks.

G+ friends, I'm letting social media distract me too much, so I'm taking a break from the site. If there's something I should know, you can still reach me through G+ because I'll get the notification in my G+ browser extension..

The auto-posts from my blog will continue (though I expect to blog less), so I'll see any comments on them here.

love to all,

Will

A better summary from the video would be, a female mugger walks up behind preacher, invades his personal space, presses herself up against his arm in a crowd, and starts yelling for him to get his hand off her breast (his hand was holding some object), then she pushes him over a wall and off a ledge onto the concrete.

She got off easy with a charge of simple assault. I hope he pursues a case in civil court for damages.

You will notice Jet Li is one of the judges. The kid is amazing, but the very best bit is the question and answer section at the end.

I love the idea of selling a universal basic income as "venture capital for the people."

What 92% of Americans consider ideal is only possible under socialism
This is a few years old, but I happened on it again today, and was struck by this: The distribution of wealth that 92% of Americans want is impossible under capitalism, but very possible under socialism. Here's the reality: In case you missed it:

I just figured out how to do racial reparations!
I'm a great fan of Matt Bruenig's work, but I was disappointed with  Glaring limits of the Civil Rights Act: We need to redistribute wealth . He says, "Ideally, we could work towards reparations in the form of redistributing wealth along racial lines." In t...

That's another reason I like Basic Income. Throughout history, the problem has been inequality. It's time to end it.

I'm not completely disappearing from G+ or Facebook, so this ain't farewell! I like Twitter, but I hate recommending another timesink to anyone.
