So what is the voting system exactly?
Westworld is definitely crossing over with Person of Interest, another concept show.
Person of Interested was created by Jonathan Nolan and Westworld is co-created by him.
I thought Person of Interested worked quite well, it had the "of the Week" and the arcs were slowly introduced. Other concept shows dive too quickly into the big themes.
There is this article by John Tamihere which is mostly-okay and ends with:
And so, March 15, 2019 is a significant day in our nationhood story and it will empower us to stand up against intolerance, hate and the infliction of hurt solely because of colour, race or creed.
but that is right after he contrasts Muslims with the "we as a nation" and has a huge dig at atheists and agnostics. Note that part of the anti-atheists quote was used in the print headline.
I've had a look around and it appears some people are already in a heated discussion on the topic of legalisation elsewhere on this site and probably don't need a duplication of that here.
I now understand some of the posts here may be influenced by posts over there.
Andin, the point I am trying to making is that a lot of people are like I said. They do think like that about "drug users". However making the jump to them all being in favor of genocide is a bit much.
Of course maybe I am making simplistic generalizations about people who are opposed to recreational drug legalization. Perhaps there are a few here that can give their reasons for opposing it.
I think you are way too dismissive of Sandra's post. You have to remember that less than 20% of adults use cannabis annually. Many of the rest of them will largely have negative associations with it.
They tried it a couple of times at University but never since then. Their "nice" middle-class friends don't use it (perhaps some actually do) and the people they do know who use do will be the loser relative who smokes all day and can never hold a job.
Sure they will empathize with the elderly white guy with the bad back who can't get pain-relief otherwise, but recreational use has no positive associations.
Just had a quick check of the response on Facebook responses from a friend who works at one of the Math-testing companies.
One of the people involved, Dr. Nick Kim loves to bring up the fact that is used in drugs such as Ritalin....so it "must" be safe....
I did a little research and found this article.
The article (in a blog for a drug-rehab centre) tell us how bad Ritalin really is.
Why is research like this ignored when talking about the risk factors of living in a meth contaminated property
Note the article is entitled:
Exposure and Risk Associated with Clandestine Amphetamine-Type Stimulant Drug Laboratories.
An example of FPP mentality I saw was Labour voters attacking the Greens for splitting the left-wing vote and allowing National to win some electorates.
Of course there are a group of Labour supporters who don't really recognise the right of the Greens to exist and think Labour should be the only-party of the Left. I'm not sure how much that hinders the two parties cooperating.
I thought it was interesting that in 2014 National included 3 minor parties ( with 4 seats) in it's coalition when just one or two would have been enough.
However this time around National instantly dropped ACT before negotiations even began. That doesn't seem a way to build up a long-term relationship with a potential coalition partner.
