Why did the Nazis hate Jewish people to the point of committing genocide?

The Jewish Holocaust didn’t exactly happen because of “hate.” That would imply that the Nazis acted out of some emotional frenzy. It is more accurate to say that the Nazis came to exterminate the Jews because they accepted an outlandish philosophy that the Jews were a “disease” that made Germany “sick” and therefore there was a rational, scientific obligation to wipe them out just as a society would want to wipe out a harmful bacterium.

The genocide of the Jews was the end result of a gradual process that began with a desire to make Germany a place for only those of German bloodline, and ended with extermination because of a mindset that in order for Germany to live, the Jews must die. It’s a long story but it can be summarized in this way:

How does a ‘shill’ for an organization operate online?

Former PR worker here, 99% of our job is to convince people that something that is fucking them over is actually good for them. The whole concept of ‘shills’ has somehow became a conspiracy theory when in reality it’s just PR workers who are paid by a company to defend their product/service. My last job was defending fracking.

Anytime a post containing keywords was submitted to a popular website we where notified and it was our job to just list off talking points and debate the most popular comments. Fracking was an easy one to defend because you could paint people as anti-science if they where against it. The science behind fracking is sound and if done properly is safe, so you just focus on this point. You willfully ignore the fact that fracking is done by people who almost never do it properly and are always looking to cut corners.

What are the implications of losing net neutrality?

Imagine if we had a separate privatized road network where you need to pay to drive on it (sort of like a tollway but more of a global subscription).

You might think it’s suspicious when I suggest it now, but let’s say it passes popular opinion because it’s newly built road that otherwise wouldn’t have been built (therefore not affecting the “normal” road network.

You might think this is a good plan. It can help ease the congestion of the normal roads since there are now alternatives available for those who can afford it.

But in time, you start noticing things:

What Goes On In The Mind Of A Sadist?

I’m a sadist. And not a whips and handcuffs s/m dominatrix (i actually find that really boring and pathetic). I am exited by genuine, mortal agony, I have compulsions to hurt people every single day sense before I can remember. It’s like a drug, it’s better than drugs.

I close my eyes and all I see is choking up blood and busted lungs and splintering bones and it just feels so good. I’ve been this way since before I can remember(the first time I can remember it I was four), and nothing I do seems to change it. I’m 23 years old and have never had a sexual partner. I’m friendly and outgoing to everyone, have tons of friends, a 3.9 GPA and every night I fall asleep to fantasies about murder. Nobody knows, not a single soul. It gets really lonely.

Why do we sometimes create morbid hypothetical situations that play out in our head when doing something normal?

These are intrusive thoughts.

Essentially they are a result of the fact that the brain doesn’t focus on/remember good or bad thoughts, but extreme thoughts. A beautiful woman walking past you and you think about her, that’s a REALLY good thought, you will think about it later. Getting a 25% raise is a great thought, it will stick with you. For the same reason if you happen to think about killing your own child (you don’t always get to choose what pops into your head) Your brain will recognize it as a terrible awful thing that you don’t want to happen. It’s so far to one side of the spectrum so your brain emphasizes it.

Sometimes the brain has to identify what the wrong thing is in order to not do it. When you think of somebody shooting up a movie theater your brain is just "indexing" it into the bad category.

Why are fights between players allowed in the NHL when it is very strongly prohibited in just about every other sport?

It helps to remember that fights in hockey are 99% consensual. If you don’t want to fight you turn your back and that’s it. There are players that fight and players that don’t, and it’s not really a machismo/honor thing that you MUST fight. No one thinks less of you for not being a fighter.

If you jump someone who is NOT looking for a fight you are usually going to get tossed from the game and probably suspended for a few games to boot. It’s not OK to blind-side someone who is not likewise spoiling for a fight and generally speaking that is frowned upon.

So the minor penalties and general lack of punishment is only in the case of two people who have collaboratively decided to go at it, which is true for almost every fight you see. They are pre-arranged (often at the face-off) and mutually agreed. At that point, two consenting adults doing what they want, basically, and the refs leave it alone until someone is at risk of getting seriously hurt — usually once someone goes down and it’s no longer a standing fight, or if other people are getting involved, or if one person is effectively incapacitated, etc.

A Few Facts That Might Shatter Your Perspective Of 4 Beloved Icons

1. At the time of her death, Mother Teresa had opened 517 missions welcoming the poor and sick in more than 100 countries. The missions have been described as “homes for the dying” by doctors visiting several of these establishments in Calcutta. Two-thirds of the people coming to these missions hoped to a find a doctor to treat them, while the other third lay dying without receiving appropriate care. The doctors observed a significant lack of hygiene, even unfit conditions, as well as a shortage of actual care, inadequate food, and no painkillers. The problem is not a lack of money–the Foundation created by Mother Teresa has raised hundreds of millions of dollars–but rather a particular conception of suffering and death: “There is something beautiful in seeing the poor accept their lot, to suffer it like Christ’s Passion. The world gains much from their suffering,” was her reply to criticism, cites the journalist Christopher Hitchens. Nevertheless, when Mother Teresa required palliative care, she received it in a modern American hospital.

What does it feel like when the person you love cheats on you?

You feel like a sharp object has hit you, it is running from your chest in a downward motion, it hurts like hell. You are ripped open and the pain is unbearable but there’s no blood… on the outside. In the inside, it’s your heart that has been punctured and ripped and the pressure you feel is like the blood from the hit wanting to rush out. Everything inside feels immensely tight. The pressure is building and has nowhere to go. You want to scream, you want to let it all out and scream that pain out. Less than a minute later, you find a pole and you hit your head so hard in it, you want to move the pain you feel inside on the outside, you want all that blood rushing out of your heart, that pressure to find a way out and that is from an open wound in your head. It stops you thinking. For two minutes. You calm down. Then it sets onto you even more. You run everything, absolutely everything, all the details of that day it happened, you curse that day. You curse yourself for giving that person that power. You think to yourself, it must be me, it truly must be me. First my husband while pregnant, second the only person I dated after him, after taking 2 years off the dating scene to heal from the heart ripping crime scene that happened inside yourself the first time.
