How exactly do you dress up like THIS and delude yourself into thinking you're one of the good guys?

@djsumdog I don't want to make this about politics, but I believe that any side encouraging the use of violence against people they don't agree with simply justifies the same behavior by others.

If you say it's ok to beat up the opposition, no-platform them, disenfranchise them from voting, then all you are doing is setting the stage for them to call for the same against you.

In the past, people felt that homosexuality was a sin, was a crime, and against the natural order. Time and retrospection has shown that they were wrong, and that LGBT had to struggle against violence and institutions working to suppress them. It's shortsighted and hypocritical of us to use the very same violent and suppressive tactics against those who disagree with us, even when we're convinced they're wrong as others were convinced before us, and I hope that history will look back kindly on us.

I don't agree with what's called the "alt right", but I can understand their frustrations in a world that seems so openly against classes of people similar to them, when they were not individually involved. It's complicated and another story.

I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!

Featuring:
• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)

Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog. You may understand it better, but it died in the process.

@djsumdog @SallyStrange Religion has little to nothing to do with God, especially now. God is God, religion is something people use to bludgeon people they consider different.

@SallyStrange You know, even though I abandoned religion years ago, I still agree with this: "But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (Matthew 5:44).

So I will love you, as best as I am able, and do my very best to love everyone as much as I can. I hope the best for you, and I hope one day your heart will be able to love, in the way Bhutto and King and Gandhi taught humanity to love. So you have a blessed night. ❤️ ☮️

Sagrantino, on sale in New Zealand? Unheard of! Sagrantino from Australia, even rarer.
