Nátlak a moralizování u ekologických hrozeb nepomůže. Naopak, říká etik Binka

Příroda není rodič s bezednou peněženkou, který „zacvaká“ naše problémy, musíme se chovat dospěle. Myslí si to environmentální etik a filosof Bohuslav Binka z Masarykovy univerzity v Brně. Řešením podle něj není ani nátlak, ani moralizování. Čím dřív však společnost zastaví klimatické změny, tím víc si budeme žít jako dnes, doufá.

Chvíle klidu zakázány. Kolonizace naší mysli funguje stejně jako kolonizace přírody

Nakládání s volným časem je dle mnohých psychologů a koučů pouze na nás – pokud si koupíme jejich knihu, zaplatíme jejich kurz či půjdeme na jejich přednášku. Nezní to až příliš jednoduše?

Teenage Rebellion as a Failure of Society

Historians have noticed that the concept of teenage rebellion is a modern invention. Young adults often (but not always) have a tendency to be horny and impulsive, but the flagrant and sometimes violent rejection of authority associated with teenagers is a stereotype unique to modern culture. Many adults incorrectly assume this means we have gotten “too soft” and need to bring back spanking, paddles, and other harsher methods of punishment. As any respectable young adult will tell you, that isn't the answer, and in fact highlights the underlying issue of ageism that is creating an aloof, frustrated, and repressed youth.

Pressure Based Anti-Spam for Discord Bots

Back when Discord was a wee little chat platform with no rate limiting whatsoever, it's API had already been reverse-engineered by a bunch of bot developers who then went around spamming random servers with so many messages it would crash the client. My friends and I were determined to keep our discord server public, so I went about creating the first anti-spam bot for Discord. I am no longer maintaining this bot beyond simple bugfixes because I have better things to do with my time, and I'm tired of people trying to use it because “it's the best anti-spam bot” even after I deprecated it.
