Confronted by Charges That Woke Leftist SJWs Would Imitate Big Brother In Insisting That 2+2 =5, Woke Leftist SJWs Actually Do Start Arguing That 2+2 does Equal 5, If That's How You Feel About It

When "2+2=5" starts being used as a meme on Twitter, and leftwing NPCs are charged with believing this formulation from 1984, you might think that leftists would say, "We don't believe in any such nonsense, and shame on you for claiming that."

That would be one way to play it.

Leftists did not choose to play it that way.

Instead, they decided to argue that 2+2 actually does sum to 5, for some people, if they feel like that's what it equals.

This link should bring up a large collage of leftists arguing for 2 + 2 equaling 5.



They were accused of being cultists of Big Brother, and rather than disputing that, they argue that Big Brother has a Plan for all of us and should be obeyed without question.

Let that sink in for a minute - it's not the exception or the small fraction that have detached themselves from empirically observable truth, but a ideological mandate (or dogma to use an approprutate religious term) that you must assent to in order to be part of the "woke" group.

These people aren't a political faction - they are in truth a delusional mob. They aren't a political faction- they are a godless hedonistic cult who's only value is their current pleasure and freedom from facing anything they would find displeasing. They aren't a political faction - they are a mindless mob who wishes to burn everything down that in any way opposes their delusional fantasy world. Through social pressure they are creating a giant mass media fueled batch of sociopathic schizophrenics - not only do they not belong in any political office, they belong in a mental institution. The societal cost of this mass mental illness will go down in history if there is anyone sane enough to appraise it in the future as the Salem witch trials * 1 Billion.

92 You know, the world is complicated. We try to make sense of it through abstraction. Abstraction requires correct inputs to work properly. Let's take an example of "2+2 does not always equal 4" pseudo-thought:

"If I have two apples, and add two pears, I have neither four apples nor four pears. Two plus two does not equal four in this case."

No one said that the act of addition manifests itself as transmogrification. That is preposterous, and they know it. Yet the pick a lower order of abstraction - a specific type of fruit - over the higher order of abstraction - like "fruit" or "plant life" or even, at it's highest level, "thing" - in order to try to invalidate the racism inherent in mathematics. But in so doing, the break the very notions of abstraction that make our advanced life and minds possible.

I don't think they know that they're doing it, but shit like this destroys the ability of an intelligent creature like a man to make sense of the world. This is a regression to the state of an animal, wrapped in pseudo-intellectual academic prattle.

Human centered? I personally rejected that the center means the focus of something.

Before you marginalize me, I am just asking a question. What if the "center" is really on the outside looking in, and to be human-centered is to actually be completely exclusionary to humans.

Which means by attempting *not* to be human centered, you are inadvertently making humans the singular focus of your entire study.

Needs a rethink.

121 I do not consent to having a boot stomped on my face - forever.


I am late to the party today.
Concerning the communist Bass, it is my firm belief that any 'community organizer' is fit for jobs of a custodial or Milton/collating nature.

I just came back from voting today in the sometimes great State of Michigan. The ladies at my polling place had clear face shields on, and one table had a plastic sheet in front of it. I made a crack about body suits next, and mentioned the punchline about sliding food under the door. There was one other person voting when I was there.
I was number forty-five, six hours in.
It was primary day here, and for me, there was only one contested race (it is mostly R here - some positions were not even contested by the Ds).
I carried a mask, but refused to actually put it on, going halfway and just holding it up to my face when necessary. I asked Mrs. DIG if looping my mask around my middle finger can be considered wearing it.

124 You can't build theory upon theory, which is what critical race theory (in the math prof example) tries to accomplish.

Because there is no objective truth to center the discussion, you end up in this weird world where only deconstruction is possible.

The post modernists understood this, but then the critical race theorists tried anyway and what we ended up with is 2+2=5.

It's turtles all the way down.

192 92 You know, the world is complicated. We try to make sense of it through abstraction. Abstraction requires correct inputs to work properly. Let's take an example of "2+2 does not always equal 4" pseudo-thought:

"If I have two apples, and add two pears, I have neither four apples nor four pears. Two plus two does not equal four in this case."

No one said that the act of addition manifests itself as transmogrification. That is preposterous, and they know it. Yet the pick a lower order of abstraction - a specific type of fruit - over the higher order of abstraction - like "fruit" or "plant life" or even, at it's highest level, "thing" - in order to try to invalidate the racism inherent in mathematics. But in so doing, the break the very notions of abstraction that make our advanced life and minds possible.

I don't think they know that they're doing it, but shit like this destroys the ability of an intelligent creature like a man to make sense of the world. This is a regression to the state of an animal, wrapped in pseudo-intellectual academic prattle.

It goes beyond that. It's pre-discernment. PoMo theory, at its core, states that there are infinite ways to interpret the world. This is true as far as it goes, but there are decidedly *finite* ways to interpret the world in a manner that is conducive to survival. To get around that, they remove discernment entirely. In essence, the entire theoretical underpinning is "there are infinite ways to interpret the world, and we have no way to know whether is one is better than the others, and all are essentially equal."

Int's not pre-enlightment or pre-morality. It's pre-thought.

This infuriates me, especially the sophistry of the "two apples plus two oranges" arguments, and the idiocy about different bases, ie, in base 4, 2 + 2 = 10.

The latter is the same statement, just using different bases and different symbols. Same damn statement.

And the former is ridiculous. You've got 4 total objects.

Yes, you can classify things and subdivide and all that, but you impose order on such things by using objective, rigorous definitions and rules.

This assault on objectivity has been going on for a long time. I remember reading one RadFem claiming that Newton's Principia was a "rape manual", for rape of mother nature. Gaia didn't give her consent for probing of her secrets.

257 This is the sort of thing that makes arithmetic guys' heads spin, and then they get very angry. Math is theoretical, a mental exercise, a branch of a branch of philosophy, and yes you can redefine values within it. Wittgenstein was famous for it (making heads spin), and there is nothing new about it.


Some people who work in "applied mathematics" day after day tend to forget that the operations they are doing are not, in fact, really math. They are following formats and algorithms defined or suggested by math functions, but mathematics is not the physical world, and you should never be surprised by this.


In the long run of stuff, one of the advantages in using mathematical thinking to predict problem solutions is that you can do those bizarre tricks, and change values and operations. Here we see a popular moral failing of lower-grade thinkers.

The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court alleges that the repeated use of force by the Seattle Police Department has made it impossible for them to exercise their right to protest without pricey personal protective gear.

"Because protesters now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely, the indiscriminate use of weapons by SPD implicates equal protection," the lawsuit says.

All of this "fear" from the teachers and unions should tell everyone ONE THING:

The teachers and unions do not even trust themselves or their administrators or leaders and principals to keep them safe.

The Public School system does not trust The Public School system to sanitize and put in policies to keep them safe.

The Public School system believes The Public School system is a failure and weak, and full of non-smart policy makers.

I know, impossible, but it would be nice if the teacher's unions experienced first-hand what the air-traffic controllers did 39 years ago this month at the hands of President Reagan.

(I'll say it again: no public sector employee should be in a union. Unions for public sector employees should not be allowed. Period.)

336 A group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle are claiming that they're being priced out of their civil rights by the prohibitive costs of defending themselves against police violence.

The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court alleges that the repeated use of force by the Seattle Police Department has made it impossible for them to exercise their right to protest without pricey personal protective gear.

"Because protesters now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely, the indiscriminate use of weapons by SPD implicates equal protection," the lawsuit says.

It's possible that Audi still has the 5000 in mind with stuff like this. I doubt that more than 5% of the twatter abusers remember or know about that.

376 "In the long run of stuff, one of the advantages in using mathematical thinking to predict problem solutions is that you can do those bizarre tricks, and change values and operations. Here we see a popular moral failing of lower-grade thinkers.
Posted by: Way, Way Downriver"

This is all true, as far as it goes.
Math is a branch of philosophy, wherein you work within an accepted set of rules to solve the proposed problem with numbers. If we were to stick with that definition, NBD. But, that definition is uselessly pedantic for everyone who doesn't give a fuck about advanced math (and that is almost everyone).

Like language, Math is a way we define and communicate the world around us. If we, willy-nilly, decide that word mean something other than what most of us think they mean, Language is useless. Just like if we decide that the values of 2 and 5 and the operation of + has a whole new definition, Math becomes nearly useless in the real world.

So, if you are trying to say "Math is a fun way to beat off while describing how smart I am in numbers", good job.

If you want to advance the idea of "Math is a very useful tool to describe the real world", you have really missed the mark.

385 There are superb instructional series and textbooks on all academic subjects online, in writing and videos. If your kid has the discipline to sit and watch and do the work, and you as a parent have the time to organize a syllabus of the good materials and monitor the kid's progress, I think home-schooling is a slam-dunk sure bet now.

The only problem you have is clawing back the school taxes you are paying to those totalitarian creeps.

It also may be a good idea to start downloading and archiving the good online educational materials on your own drives, so that you get them before they are disappeared by the Maoists.

448 Like language, Math is a way we define and communicate the world around us. If we, willy-nilly, decide that word mean something other than what most of us think they mean, Language is useless. Just like if we decide that the values of 2 and 5 and the operation of + has a whole new definition, Math becomes nearly useless in the real world.
--------

But they're trying to prove that math is just like language in that we made the whole thing up.

The word "fork" does not have to mean fork. But a fork is still a fork no matter what you call it. What we call it doesn't matter as such. Just about everyone knows what a fork is. If you call it other things, like an "outlet stabber" or "toaster digger" you may be able to change the behavior of stupid people but you are not changing the fork or what *can* be done with it. You are manipulating people.

They are well used to the way language does this. They change word meanings all the time for just this reason. And it "changes" society, though gradually. And just like how they're not happy with one news outlet out of thousands not being under their control, so it is now with math and real science.

2 + 2 is such a universal truth that we could use it to instantly communicate with aliens or anyone else and have a shared understanding. It can't be fucked with like language without startlingly bad consequences for all.

And I think that's what attracts these psychos to it.

Classical education. The stuff we had before the 60s when they started trying out all these new ideas. Some children weren't achieving and succeeding like others, we have to even out the outcome!

You start with Grammar: the basic facts, and kids memorize them (like 2+2=4 and spelling). Then you teach them Logic: how to build these basic facts into truths and examine what is wrong and false. Then you complete it with Rhetoric: how to use Logic to create new things and understand the world for yourself.

Its called the "trivium" and it taught the world's leaders and built civilization for centuries until communists ruined education.

480 >>> 2/ To start, lets look at EXACTLY what they say as how they argue here is VERY important.

They don't say 2+2=4 is FALSE.

They don't say 2+2 always equals 5. What they say is:

A. 2+2 can sometimes equal 5, And
B. That 2+2 doesn't always equal 4.

-------
Well, sure. It depends on the self-realized gender and racial identities of the two 2's If one of the 2's identifies as a female, it gets bumped-up to the value of 3. Same if one of the 2's identifies as a Numeral of Color.

The next logical step is to note the numerical/social additive value for each number in an equation. For example, a 2 that considers it self a lesbian would be noted as 2{1}. So, a cis-white male 2 added to a lesbian 2 would be 5. The equation is 2 + 2{1} = 5. Presto!

Clear?

493 Even their examples to show 2+2 = 5 don't show that.

If you have two factories with two machines and parts for half of another and you join the two plants, you get five machines.

That's not 2+2=5, that's 2.5+2.5=5 which is what math always says. You know, the exact opposite of your point.

But, two apples plus two oranges doesn't equal four apples.

You're right. But that's not 2+2, that's 2a+2o. Again, you're not making the point you think you're making. All I hear is that you're really dumb and you don't know how math works. Of course, I knew that when you said 2+2 can be 5. All you've done is mathematically prove your idiocy.

The fun part when I was reading up on Galileo is that eckshually his model was worse than Ptolemy's. Ptolemy had millennia of fine-tuning (the famous Hypatia added some tweaks) so was a decent approximation by the 1600s. It was better at calculating Mercury's orbit for instance.

Galileo supported his findings through the Stellar Parallax : arxiv.org/ftp/physics/papers/0612/0612086.pdf

But his numbers were shit. It took until the 1800s when Galileo would be proven despite him.

As Marx points out in his Poverty of Philosophy, the concept of objective truth is aristocratic and bourgeois.

Philosophy, the quest for truth, is thus absurd and evil.

Then they move somewhere else, and talk about how they came from a place that was such a nice town, until recently, getting pity and sympathy from a new set of unsuspecting victims.

Palm to forehead. This idiot is conflating factories with machines.

Each factory has 2.5 machines. the correct formula here is 2 times 2.5 which equals 5.

It really matters to only combine things that have like units. The formulation of the stupidy is the equivlaent to: If we have gone 2 miles and have 3 cows how many Woke Assholes are teaching math.
