Arithmetic is the spelling bee of mathematics...

At a recent #Graduation #Party, somebody asked me, "What's <a big number> times <a different big number>?"

I answered, "I don't do #Arithmetic."

Somebody else quipped, "aren't you the WNY-math-Guy or something like that?"

So, yes and.
I pointed out how if you compared #English to #Mathematics, any person has the ability to tell a story despite many people not being able to spell all the words correctly. I said that arithmetic is garbage #math, theirs much... show more
Arithmetics is god's way of showing you, "You count."
Dear Micheal. I'll try to send you some of my math graphics. I construct exotic manifolds with the mapping of contour integrals and analytic continuation artifacts. Aliasing is one of my processes for projecting higher-order waveforms. My initial interest in calculator software was for computational mathematics. But that soon expanded to include pure math and technical symbolic languages.

Well yes, you're right in many things as well, but I still stand behind my point. Banning revenge porn or fake news based on deepfakes seems reasonable at first, it can pass, but that precedent is dangerous as hell. That policy alone won't completely eliminate deepfakes happening and especially the fake news endangering the rich and powerful will lead to things like punishments of simply having a deepfake program installed on your computer. When wealth and power is in bet, laws will get ridiculously restrictive... as they did for example with the so called "intellectual property" when someone can nowadays own a single color or idea and you can get sued and punished for using that color or idea. Or be arrested as a "holocaust denier" for simply critically researching the events. Such laws also become another weapon of the powerful against those who endanger them (Assange, Snowden etc). They'll remotely install such program on their enemy's computer, arrest them, label them a terrorist, discredit and silence them, with the society's approval.

We obviously have much more to talk about than just this one thread.
Your specific examples all have merits. I don't know if I can make valid counterclaims that you couldn't make valid counterclaims to, so maybe I'll leave this thread here as it is. An example of intractable counterclaims would be on the topic of restrictive laws. I know some laws are written with wild leeway for the law enforcement authorities (eg. malfunctioning automobile taillight), and I know that they do this for a reason; to detain people without probable cause that would hold up in court whereas the timely circumstantial evidence appears to convict the person of interest. The tail-light stop is nearly never used by authorities, and at times I see them driving with a tail-light out, but if a person driving (in a law-abiding way), inside a matching car that was identified in an armed robbery, with the same number of occupants, the nearby police would make a stop claiming the tail-light was out even if it was functioning (can't prove it wasn't for a moment when he looked). If the routine check on the occupan... show more
@Michael Rupp coincidentally I have found a great source I can now refer to (feel free to comment on that thread), rather than spend hours in threads trying to word the arguments myself. I feel like I've made my main points here and don't want to go much deeper in this thread either, but for you as well as other readers, let me try to use my newly found source:
I’m not unwilling to have my mind changed

I’ve never been convinced that Anarchism was a valid approach to life in general due to the state of human nature.
Anarchist FAQ: What about "human nature"? -- this should address that point. If you're genuinely open-minded here, give it a read, it won't be a wasted time 😀

Interesting Article on Free Speech and Censorship

While #Federated systems branch & bud to maintain #FreeSpeech in online #SocialNetworks, the "evil" Ad based Megalodons struggle with content moderation.
I'm not 100% sure how to moderate my own #Friendica servers when questionable content arises; I know how to delete posts, but it's hard to know why before they arise. My main plan is to not be an #Asshole.

This is a wonderful not too #Mathematical explanation of something very important.

does it make a noise?
