When people who subscribe to the capitalist paradigm say "efficient," what they mean is: profitable.
It's similar to the whole thing with them describing humans as rational actors.
I'm like: "No, the behavior you're describing is not adhering to reason at all," but they don't mean that when they say "rational," they mean something like: focused on individual net gain.
The wording, however, implies that this is driven by rationality.
And people seem to buy it, big time.
vegetarian food and meat substitutes – a long thread Show more
So whether or not you're vegetarian or vegan, cutting down on your meat intake is a good idea for various reasons – high among them being environmental concerns and overuse of antibiotics on farms. It would be foolish to think otherwise.
The thing is, some cultures have been using meat substitutes in food for centuries. Either for religious reasons, like some schools of Buddhism, or among people who don't always have access to meat. So it can be worth following their example.
Humans are not evolved to be herbivores, and I really don't like all the people who say "go vegan" without also telling people exactly what that means. So in case anyone finds it useful, here's a little thread about meat substitutes to include in your diet, and nutrients to make sure you're getting enough of!

Alt-Right recruitment tactics, what to look for, minor US_rel mention Show more
I know this is a difficult topic to discuss.
I decided to look into how the Alt-Right recruits people and found this explanation.
As someone who was recruited into a Fundamentalist Evangelical Cult I recognized most of these tactics immediately as variants were used on me.
I would recommend reading this and looking for warning signs in your family, friends, etc. Talk to them before it is too late.
Finden Sie eine ruhige Innenstadt wichtig?
Wünschen Sie sich mehr Parks, Radwege, Spielplätze, Bäume in der Stadt?
Finden Sie es erstrebenswert, dass 8jährige Kinder allein und sicher zum Bäcker vier Straßen weiter gehen können?
Wären Sie bereit, Ihr Auto abzuschaffen oder grundsätzlich vor der Stadt zu parken, wenn der öffentliche Verkehr funktioniert?
Natürlich nicht. Wieso?
Mag sich vielleicht hier jemand die Mühe machen, dem Chefredakteur der Fuldaer Zeitung (firstname.lastname@example.org) zu erklären, warum man sich als Medium komplett selbst disqualifiziert, wenn man so einen Unsinn abdruckt? Egal ob als "Kolumne" oder sonstwas... #Klimaleugner #FridaysForFuture #FCKAFD
