@Hypolite Petovan since you are to my knowledge one of the most insider people of the Friendica system, I thought posting this to you wouldn't be a bother.

I don't know if this is already on the Friendica to-do list, but at about 9:21 or so in @Anubis2814 's video below, he said something about automated account migration.

It sounds really cool to me but its just a stub idea. Imagine something like rank-choice-voting where a user picks a next of kin server to go to if the operator of the one they are on wants to shutter the operation. Admin clicks a migration button and users with a predefined next-of-kin server choice get moved. It's a fun idea.
Hypolite Petovan
Hi Michael, it’s an attractive idea on its face, but a single user account can weigh several hundreds of megabytes between posts and pictures, so an automated migration could quickly overwhelm both the source server and destination server(s). The accounts may also include unused ones or reshare bots that shouldn’t be moved automatically either.

In my opinion the best solution still is to trust each individual users with moving their account and admins to give their active users enough time to do so.
Anubis2814
Yeah its too bad the instances can't be set up to be backed up on redundant instances, similar to how big tech companies do it. Perhaps people who can't run an instance themselves could be a slower repository just for storage backup. If someone's drive craps out like mine did once, all our data is kaput, which is why I'm not going to even think about running an instance til I am sure there is nothing stopping me from keeping it up for good,, and I have enough storage for a backup drive in case one dies.. Also I've had like my peertube account just collapse on me which is really frustrating as the user just decided without telling anyone they lost interest or something and converted their instance to a personal one. a redundant backup in case of say health crisis of the person running the instance would allow people to migrate their data, even if it was slowly, from the backup system(s).

I believe that mentioning # name in mixed company can push # # on almost all people who have heard of him, or heard some of him, and even so for some people who have heard most of him. I think I know why that happens, but it's not why I am writing this. I have heard so much from him directly that I earnestly believe he is always ready to be wrong and change based on new evidence. However, he makes really strong cases for what he thinks, so if you disagree with what he is saying while he is saying it, you get the feeling that you are in a philosophical life or death struggle. I don't anymore because I have heard a sufficient amount of his spoken thoughts. I respect him a lot.

In his recent episode of # "Can We Pull Back From The Brink?" (which seems to be a hot-take), he dispassionately discusses scale & judgment relative to the latest # and # work—in earnest—hoping to find a way to make things better in a rational way. Give it a listen, please, maybe jot down notes so you don't let the good be the enemy of the bad.




What follows below is my reaction to his podcast above.

Regarding his "proximate cause" for the civil & uncivil unrest, I'd like to argue this is more accurate than Sam's claim.
#, # #, # & # | The Daily Social Distancing Show


Regarding his "if you think a society without cops is a society you would want to live in, you have lost your mind" part, I'm feeling a false dichotomy happening there. I'm no fan of # ideals because they like # don't present ideas that I can see as # or ideally doing the most good for the most people, but I agree with them in that what we are doing now isn't convincingly better.

Sam poses a world without cops vs. a world as it is. What about a world with different cops whos publicized mission matches their hidden agendas, and that type of police force is agreeable to the local public in a very democratic and constitutional-rights respecting way with real accountability for their actions?

Sam idealized "giving a # on # to the state" which if things weren't as they really are I could understand, but the reality is from the start we gave a monopoly on violence to a # chosen type of like-minded individuals who's direction came from only the # of #. # and # # are far more like the depiction in A Clockwork Orange than they are in Blue Bloods. Sure, #, but it's supposed to be an ideal, a higher standard, and that is definitely not met.

It's also hard to know if my own # makes me feel the need to post this because Sam can say something in one in a sentence that makes me think of a rebuttal, and in the next sentence he will vindicate my thoughts, although I didn't hear it because of the distraction caused by the first sentence. Sam oddly uses some extreme examples of things that happened like firings from "woke-culture" for non-incidents to make his points—granted they were on the mass media so they have the power to cause # # to be produced from thin air—but later in the podcast, he decided to claim the extremes causing the uprising were too # # to justify the results on the ground. Not cool. Firings of well-to-do people for lousy reasons, bad, the # of black people for lousy reasons, not a significant thing statistically.

Sam, relative to #, reminds me of the dad-type who is harder on his own child than the rest of the world because he cares more about his own kid.

I'm not sure who Sam was listening to in general on the topic linked to # to form his positions, but I think # with # does a far better job covering the concept than Sam did in his #.
What Does It Mean to Defund or Abolish the Police?


Around 37 minutes in Sam starts to talk about the progress we have made with # in the #, and his points are valid, but I feel like the bright picture he presented was a sentence fragment that begged to be completed. A two-term black # (which Sam mentions), with the backlash of a # (which he failed to juxtapose), and all that it has wrought since is not what I would consider a net gain in # #.

Somebody who recently made this point, and is of better of recent notoriety than I, is Kimberly Jones. She eloquently states my position.
How Can We Win?


Sam goes on to justifiably suss out the difference between real and perceived patterns; the plural of anecdotal evidence is not data. A recent episode of Invisibilia agrees with him to some degree about how we can see a pattern where there isn't one because we have become # by # of #.
Trust Fall


He makes a lot of good points to shore up the mental space a # might be stuck with based on what they experienced or were told by their superiors in the routine precinct meetings, but he didn't—to my liking—shore up the reasons why people economically below the middle-class citizen are also stuck in a mental space determining their actions based on their personal experience and that of their community. Change both their environments and cultures, and you'll change their actions. I'll offer a few places to find reasons to see things through the eyes of others if you haven't been out of your suburban cul-de-sac to find it out for yourself.





Later on, around 1:15:10 time mark, Sam starts to do a thing where he sees a statistical anomaly and without a good-enough theory of why there is an anomaly, he assumes things that I perceive as assumptions that are culturally forced on him based on his likely experiences to date.

His statement of, "we're talking about career criminals", to categorize police shootings as justifiable is a tip-off that the data is trusted on its face, and it bothers me that there is no acknowledgment that the path of a person who was cultured into being a "career criminal" could have started with a bogus arrest for marijuana consumption. People who haven't been flushed by the system think merits can save you. I, a white person from the middle-class, had many run-ins with the police where I undeservedly was let off the hook with a warning, and no records of mine were permanently kept in the system.

Also, also, people without stuff may crime to survive, where people with means most likely crime to entertain themselves.

He mentions how Officer to Suspect interactions of the same race are more likely to be #. Like what if a like-race-category on the PD has more to prove to their coworkers when confronting a like-race-category "suspect". Since the incident of how PD's retaliate on anybody that crosses them in a cult-like way, e.g. the dismissal of LAPD's Chris Dorner the recently uncovered Buffalo PD case of Cariol Horne, it is very plausible that race discrimination or tacit racism pervasive in the PD's causes it the way a sidewalk in disrepair causes a bone injury. Did we even check to see if there's a bias in reporting where non-white officers are more likely to report things #? # # would come down hard on non-white employees and be forgiving of white employees.
8:46 - Dave Chappelle


He then jumps to a hypothesis that because blacks are more likely to # an # because of real or perceived systematic racism problem, "the only response is for the police to increase their use of force". Damn Sam. That's the only choice they have? Like de-escalation techniques never worked? Like the way patrolling went in the months and years before the incident has nothing to do with how things go down? The cop's only choice was that. Sorry Sam, I reject your null hypothesis.

Maybe black on black violence outside police to non-police interactions wouldn't be so high if there wasn't a clear signal from the system that blacks don't matter to the police, and their bullshit arrests or stops & frisks are randomly distributed to make tally sheets on clipboards look right for municipal reporting. If an innocent black person was shaken down without # # and no tangible #, will they later call the cops when a local criminal act by a black person is being committed? If you are a skilled black criminal, will you cut in some of the local police on the action you are running? Any cop that don't give a fuck about black people would give a fuck more about a black person helping his kid get through college with side money. In the # Podcast linked above the Chicago PD's local precinct office couldn't find Courtney Copeland's killer with the evidence handed to them on a silver platter, I—personally—can only assume the cops are the mob.

Somewhere around 1:30:00 we hit a concept of what kind of people would want to be cops in such a # # #. "Who's gonna want to be a cop now?" Ugh! This smacks of, the only people that care about privacy are people doing something wrong, I ain't got nothing to hide. He further postulates that only prison guard type people will want to be cops. #. Maybe if good people didn't think they were going to be gang-land retaliated against for doing the # # thing, they might take a chance on being a cop. If whistle-blowers didn't know by past examples that it would end all their # # in one fell swoop, there might be more people doing good things for the world. Where's Reality Winner now? Our # # propagated by those in power is #, and to extend the metaphor, many of us still think # is good for their health. I would definitely want to go for it and become a cop if I didn't personally have reasons to see the PD's near me as corrupt from first and credible second-hand experiences.

Near the end, about 1:34:00, he's claiming the videos are warping our perception of the problem. I think in that he is putting the wrong weight on the value of loss and cascading ill-effects one police act of murder of a minority has on our country. We are supposed to be founded on all people are created equal, innocent until proven guilty, and so on.

Most people take law enforcement for granted, and by that I mean it's assumed to have always been that way and that it's acceptable. It's well documented how the # formed it's # forces in order to maintain the # institution of # (see also: Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 & of 1850, Encyclopædia Britannica, TIME Magazine and Eastern Kentucky University for starters), but most of us are blissfully unaware of the darker driving truths.

A tidbit that comes out early in this week's # # called #, is that the # # (Bobbies) has a dark past as well.

The culture that forms an entity lingers on long after the people and reasons for forming an institution have died. It takes a lot of energy over generations to clean that garbage legacy culture out of an organization when everybody is willing to remove it. Collectively # are not ready willing or able to remove our sins of # and # the # from policing because a minority of "us" (the wealthy) want it that way, and they can afford to produce a steady stream of propaganda convincing the majority of people beyond their interests into defending indefensible actions that come out of those institutions.

A stark truth that I personally see is that # internally and # # externally are de facto the same thing for the same reasons put into motion by the same people for the same reasons. We have not yet really left #, our # is as big an # as a #.

I saw @Lisa Stranger post the earliest "rumors" (minimally substantiated facts) of this recently. This morning I finally saw "Credible" (well-substantiated) sources getting on the story, like the embedded podcast and the attached web page below.

The linked webpage below has embedded video that was initially live-streamed showing early on that it WAS NOT the protesters causing damage. The # does seem like a cop and his only alibi is other police who were all dressed in murky black clothing amidst the chaos.

Twitter, has postings from journalists indicating that the # # went on a tire slashing bender. See the @AndrewKimmel posting and his substantiation of the claim. Other's on Twitter have documented public tire slashing and from different angles at the same time and place. Still others on Twitter are making connections to the US Govt. Agencies investigating the true nature of the people damaging property.

Still, the best story to read is that linked webpage at the bottom of my microblog post here. They discuss Right-wing extremists and # in the latter half. That's some sick stuff festering in our society.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die
I don't know how exactly to deal with my white friends lately. I could have the same headspace of ignorance but for a lucky random event that changed my direction towards # about two decades ago. They aren't exposed to the realities of people without power or money. They don't know they should be exposed to those harsh realities. They don't know because of how # has formed and they don't know how it has been # by people with # and #.

A person in my circles asked me what I thought about what's going on in the news lately. He asked because his mind is starting to open, but it bothered me that he didn't ask that question when the Koch instigated and funded armed militia groups were storming State Capital buildings because they wanted hair-cuts and bowling. I didn't resist mentioning that to him. I also had to ask him, "How many people had their necks kneeled on but didn't die?"

I'm not sure I helped guide him closer to knowing. Us # # # people didn't decide to be ignorant, we were cultured into it by design and it self-replicates as religion does by believing lies that make us reject conflicting evidence. "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit." "Yeah, that's a bad neighborhood. Those people don't know how to act civilized." Understanding is shut off. Complex things and environments are reduced to binary "facts". It's an illusion to think any person is different from another person in a meaningful way. Our actions are different because our culture is different, and we all think we are acting the right way, until the day we discover we are wrong and begin to act differently.

Give a sigh and assume the ignorant were victims of a cult when you try to enlighten them with harsh realities.

Before ink is dry on record FCC penalty check, Sinclair runs full-hour in-kind ad for mayoral candidate

The station hosted a more than hourlong online “conversation” with Vignarajah alone Thursday night,
but the FEC has been gutted, so WGAF
with anchor Mary Bubala noting at the beginning of the livestreamed program that they had hoped to be joined by Miller, Dixon and Scott. The station did not invite former Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith and Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young because they require candidates to release five years of tax returns to qualify for these debates.
THE IRONY, IT BURNS
In her letter to the station, Miller’s campaign manager, Ann Beegle, noted that several people affiliated with Sinclair, a conservative-leaning Hunt Valley-based company, have made large financial contributions to Vignarajah’s mayoral campaign.

https://www.baltimoresun.com/politics/bs-md-pol-fox-debate-baltimore-mayor-20200508-hmoenzleine63fcm7qabakdzxy-story.html

Vignarajah is an entitled twat, to boot.

Another type of Religion, Drinking Bleach, and Donald Trump
So we all know that The # told us his idea of how getting UV light inside the body or injecting a sanitizing agent should be looked into to solve the # problem. You may not ask yourself "where the # does he get his dangerous ideas?", because that will lead to another crazy person to which you would ask the same question, and maybe loop on for thousands of branches.

Here's the short branch on this one. A # claimed he was cured of malaria instantly when he took a water purification tablet, so he started an industry of getting people to ingest diluted #. His method has led to the deaths of many children and his own wife, but he persists anyway. Turns out he's politically parallel to Donald J. Trump and has contacted him recently by a letter about how his product would cure the Corona Virus pandemic. That nut may believe it, but no, it doesn't work on anything. Trump gets a letter, then free-balls it at the press conference.

# will fuck up your web-server if you don't know what you are doing.

That's my way of saying, "# for the service outage."
Michael Rupp

Web Servers are HARD!


When you first install your own # on your own #, everything pretty much goes easy and right. Over time you get more complex with things. Then upgrades start to roll in. Eventually, you make a mistake and nobody notices anything. Because you care about the content on the #, you spend time on that, not reading logs and outputs of cron jobs. You miss some things that would have been great to know. Then in what seems like a flash, you are in Murphy's Law territory.

It's stunning how much a person doesn't know about things they know so much about.

Sorry Nations of the Earth, America fucked it all up, you're in grave danger now.
Typically I post a full microblog in the IP, but this time I'll reply to my own IP to add supporting info.

We are all in deep existential trouble. That's my conclusion based on the state of the world as I can know it as an ordinary single human being. I think we are all just as # as the world was prior to # and this time it's # # that will be attempting to destroy the world so that under a quarter of its inhabitants can get what they want. Looking at you GAB types.

I'm not big on #. For example, as a former US Marine, I know you don't get out of boot-camp unless you can make the shots that Oswald took at Kenedy, so fuck your "Grassy Knoll" beliefs. And the Earth is definitely not flat. I'm never more than 100%-dx% sure of anything, so I'm always ready to be convinced that I'm wrong. Right now I'm convinced that a confluence of events has coincided in a way that it may be unstoppable, and it will alter the nature of all cultures on Earth.

  • The USA has fuckloads of weapons and an excessive desire to use them.
  • The USA has a minority subset of people controlling nearly all the power in the country and the citizens who privately own guns specifically to protect against a dictatorship, favor the dictatorship that is forming here.
  • The people with power also control the lines of thinking of a majority of Christian religions in the USA and have built them up to a fever pitch of pent up rage and righteous indignation that they will on command overwhelm the rest of the rational thinking Americans.
  • The Bullshit Strongman Leader type has propagated all over the globe into most of the powerful nations on the planet.
  • The USA became the unrivaled world leader from a second rate country because it sat out the world wars as much as it could and kept the fighting away from its oligarchs' factories. It seems like Putin could pull off a similar Judo move by instigating a World War and waiting it out all the while saying, "did I do that?"
  • The people in power in the USA that are the problem may actually believe that they are "Chosen by God" and that means they have no boundaries of ethics or morals because they are God and whatever they do is good by definition. This insidious culture may have been exported to all other countries from the USA and some of the other countries imported it either in a Machiavellian way or because they are True Believers; the latter is more dangerous.
  • During world wide chaos is the ideal time to make a move for power, just like rival mobsters would make a move on the other's turf if the other's top guy was hospitalized.

I strongly believe You (the non-USA world) will be under attack from about half of Us (the USA world) despite protestations from the other half of Us. You all better get ready for it now.

I'm an # now, but used to be a #, and used to be a # too for that matter. A wide variety of attitudes and personalities exists among the world of atheists. Recently two who are culturally differen't enough that I was surprised to hear both of them setting off an alarm of # # posing a big problem for society at large. Here are the media that they were posted on:

Relatively Irrational Ideas vs. Universally Irrational Ideas
I'm trying to play with # and don't know if my reach is big enough to attract people willing to chat about my content.
It started before hearing the latest podcast from The Thinking Atheist

but it felt urgent while hearing it.
Reveal/hideHis words and callers had me vasillating between NNNOOOOOO!!!!! & YYYEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!


We are all # from within our own social circles.


I have to hear # thoughts uttered from people in my social circles very often. I'm rarely in a position to influence people towards truth (well at least to my truth if nothing else ;) because my # is something that causes all of them to be skeptical of my and my thoughts on anything. I took my trip to Atheism quietly in my own head and after Farcebook outed me by flipping a switch one day on private groups, everything changed.

Since I used to be just like them, I have some insight into how we used to think and react to # ideas. I would like to blame it on #, but I think it's more pervasive than that based on personal experiences. It seems like something in human culture from somewhere way back in our collective past it became a # # winning strategy to reject the "others" when they deviated from our thoughts and ways. That's a segway to my bigger point; we are more a product of our culture by far than we are of our genetics and that makes us malleable in remarkable ways. It can be the case that a tumor on a brain can cause a person to be criminally anti-social, so please lets only consider the cases where we are in good working order.

Sam Harris the public figure, has a strong case that # is an illusion, and I reject that notion, but don't reject his supporting evidence. However, I do often notice how a person's choices were preloaded by their cultural influences. And most people are rational, so most people make a preselected single choice based on the values they adopted from their cultural influences. That can appear to show life is predestined, but it's also showing the lack of exercising free-will. It might help if we would occasionally make sub-optimal decisions in a Puckish way or take choices of action that aren't offered to us, then I think it makes us activists in the protection of free-will. Although this freedom can lead to bad things; that's part of free will, the danger of bad outcomes which cultural experience could have prevented.


I escaped my "cave" of # # and think it's was the best thing that ever happened to me, but between then and now were a lot of very uncomfortable times and bad memories. It was worth it for me.
Reveal/hideI've left a lot of psychological caves since then too and can't believe the things I accepted as reality without ever testing things rigorously.


If you have left a cave, or can bring yourself to accept the idea that your current # might be a wrong one, then you are open-minded enough to break free of the cultural influences that programmed your decisionmaking apparatus.

From such a vantage point you can begin to see how others weren't inherently # or # people, but instead were people stuck in a personal reality path where they saw no other choices despite there being infinite possibilities at their disposal at every moment in time. This is where my post title comes back into the foreground. People who are acting in ways you accept are most likely in one of your chosen or inherited cultural circles and those actions may be relatively rational to your circle(s), or they might be universally rational to all circles for all time (or somewhere inbetween). As a quick aside, I didn't know how remarkably bad WWI was till recently, and with my current understanding of how # works and affects people, it changed how I thought about Hitler since he suffered through, but survived, that wretched war. It seems to my recollection that every time I take a closer look into the life of somebody who's actions are Relatively Irrational to me, I can see how they could be so far askew of good social order and yet still think they are the good person doing the right thing. It doesn't mean I forgive or forget the actions, but like the amazing Chris Rock once said about O.J. Simpson, "I can understand."

What about people in bad places with bad parents who turn out good?


I believe the motivation for people asking this question is relying on the fallacy of incomplete evidence or at the worst a red-herring type Straw-Man.

The following is a brief trip to my past. As a young child, my parents told many lies which they thought at the time were good to tell in order to protect an innocent child; Santa is real, pulled teeth are worth money to a fairy, drugs are of the devil, etc. At some point in life, I discovered that some people were assholes based on how they treated me and others were not. For reasons I didn't think about at the time people I considered good also did drugs and drank alcohol outside the law. This type of cognitive dissonance caused by personal experience allowed me to distrust all the advice of my parents and their related circles of culture, even the good ones. You might say I got kicked out of the cave I was born into?

At some high level of summary, my parents were ideal in society and were above reproach as good parents. Depending on where one point's the telescope or microscope of hindsight, very different conclusions can be justified about how "good" my home-life was. Even from my own knowledge of history, I would have agreed that their parenting was above reproach and only I was culpable in my decisions to try drugs and drink to excess, that is, until I learned how to leave a cave.

I neither condemn or exonerate their actions, but I don't mindlessly repeat any of them. I'd like to believe I'm a truly good person in the world, especially since I rejected faith in any supernatural entities. I can also see how despite doing things in the past that I find despicable now, at the time I was doing them I was the hero in my own mind's eye, and I was doing the right things for the right reasons. So, if we took a closer look at how the "bad places" and "bad parents" world treated a person who left that all behind to become a "good person", we will probably find that similar to why I thought drugs would be good, that red-herring person who chose good was kicked out of their cave too.

In the voice of Steven Wright, "Still tired from the move."
Steven Wright clip on YouTUBE

So I moved recently to a new location. This might mean I will start posting again. It was a month or more to prepare to move and it might take another month to unpack.
Server Moving Day
Starts:  Saturday January 18, 2020 @ 7:00 AM
Finishes:  Saturday January 18, 2020 @ 11:59 PM
I will be moving the physical server to a new location so delays in restarting the server should be expected depending on when the "Cable Guy" shows up to activate the Internet at the new location.

Early Friday morning server time the power will go off for the server and with luck, I'll have it running again by 3:00 PM EDT.

I'm pretty sure this won't be an inconvenience for most users on the system.

This episode deals with #Narcissism and I wrongly assumed he was going to talk about #Trump. He didn't go there. I was pleasantly surprised to find out he was "giving away the game" that #Narcissists play on the rest of us and how to block and/or avoid those #psychological bad-trips.
