There is some social phenomenon which I suspect explains non work, non marriage, deaths of despair, general alienation and, I suspect, the rise of reactionary populism. It should be a major task of social science to understand it.

- Lawrence H. Summers

If only there were some sociologist who, in painstaking detail, studied things like alienation, unemployment, etc....

Oh well! Guess we're out of luck there!

Comments are great tho, ppl somehow recognize this Marx as a caricature

from the vid: "Killing people and destroying property solves nothing. Democracy is the only road to socialism" - fake Marx

EDIT: "Only when workers are able to assemble freely and in strength will we be able to achieve the reforms we most assuredly deserve" - also fake Marx


About Community

r/badphilosophy is currently open. We are accepting Valentine’s Day cards. Don't make us close it again. **** Peterson/Harris spammers will be banned. **** You should really go on old reddit to enjoy this. For your convenience, click "classic" up left from here. But I guess our post background gifs are also neat.

things people say sometimes

r/badphilosophy is currently open. Don't make us close it again. See here for an archive of good philosophy of race.

Official Rules:

  1. Trolley memes are an instant ban. So are non-trolley memes.

  2. All posts about something the length of one tweet or smaller must go in the Abysmal Aphorisms small-posts thread, or be met with an instant ban.

  3. Don't vote in linked threads - Remember, you're only a visitor of Bedlam. Speaking reason with the inmates, though futile, may be entertaining but don't tap on the glass. They are mercurial specimens.

  4. This is not a place for learns. Earnest questions about philosophy are best directed to /r/askphilosophy.

  5. Many things are bad but not bad philosophy. Keep it to philosophical content or things about the discipline.

  6. If you post a link to a video, you must do so as a text post and explain in the post what the bad philosophy content of the video is. No one has time to watch a 20 minute video to guess at what you meant, and it helps to avoid fucking up one's recommended queue on youtube.

  7. Participants and non-participants on this forum can and will be banned by the moderation staff for any reason or non-reason whatsoever. Unbans are handled similarly. Send an appeal, don't be an asshole, and come prepared with red pandas. Justice is guaranteed, but your conception of the just is most likely wrong. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, so mote it be. Abrahadabra.

  8. TERFs, Bri Bri, racists, and other undesirables will not be unbanned.

Official Suggestions:

  1. Have an alcoholic beverage within reach while viewing this subreddit.

  2. If you're going to crosspost Reddit-born bad philosophy here, try to educate the bad philosopher beforehand. It's rare but they may actually learn something. Otherwise, more bad philosophy to be shared.

  3. r/badphilosophy is not an accurate representation of philosophy as a profession nor reddit's philosophical community.

  4. There's nothing wrong with a man wanting to be little spoon. And, you know what, I feel sorry for you; you're like... oh, look at me, I'm a man, so manly, I'm always big spoon, like a man! Yeah, ok, well, I'm going to be over here getting to, you know, like... eat cake, watch cool videos, hang out, and be fucking little spoon! I'm not ashamed, it's awesome! Fuck you, man, you don't know me!
