@Gargron 3) vote tactically to keep the tories out
if you're in scotland your best bet is probably the SNP because scottish labour are still a barrel of wank
@Gargron Even if my sample is made of people who are straight-up guessing, it's an interesting result to just document the level of uncertainty before the fact, as often with hindsight, things that were very uncertain beforehand are thought of later as being inevitable
(But if you just don't wanna, don't feel pressured, just warmly invited!)
@Gargron Damn right, Eugen.
For all of our sakes... Im really worried for our futures if she does get in. As a developer Im gravely concerned about where it leaves me.
She has the behavior of a dictator in the making.
@Gargron I've only ever heard of one election in which not voting was justifiable: it was the first referendum during the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile, and a lot of people didn't vote because they feared electoral registers were being used to target political dissidents.
In democratic elections, not voting can only ever be interpreted as apathy, even when it might not be. For a protest vote, vote blank: it is the only vote that says "I am not represented by any option"
@Technowix @Gargron Sure, but even a person with high-IQ and enough data can make bad decisions. It's just free will. The most powerful nazis did an IQ test while they're in captivity before their judgement, they all had high IQs.
@Gargron @wonderfall Yeah, many things are to take into account too, thoses high graded nazis "can" have been persuaded that killing/chasing a whole part of the population would solve many problems :v
Like Plato's Cave, if you don't know there is another possibility, there isn't another possibility...
@Technowix @Gargron They could be influenced, or in this case, they could also influence others as well. They didn't want to do a "bad" thing intentionally, ofc, but they've done mistakes and (objective) crimes.
Also (off subject) the most interesting thing with IQs is maybe not the test itself but the correlations.
I won't judge the Wehrmacht, ever. What you're saying mostly applies to the regular soldiers who didn't get to decide and were engaged to defend their nation (not the ideology, but their families).
