    1. Prominence as a critic tends to reinforce itself. The person who appears on news shows is the person who gets to star in a documentary is the person who gets to testify before the Senate is the person who gets invited back onto the news shows, and so forth.

      Another specific example of this has been noted by Zeynep Tufekci of an economist becoming the face of criticism of the education space being open or closed during the coronavirus pandemic. The woman, who had no background in public health or epidemiology, became the public face of the argument about whether schools should be open or closed.

    1. As Miller explained, it is central to the radical Left’s foundation to destroy Americans’ faith in ourselves, our past, and our present. Because this destruction is the prerequisite for changing America into a dramatically different country, which is less free, less safe, and less successful.

      Why are Republicans always trying to use the "radical Left" as the boogeyman and painting the entirety of the Democratic party with it? Gingrich knows full well that there are marginal voices on the far left just as there are on the far right. Why are Republicans always painting with such a broad brush and not supporting their arguments with actual facts?

      I'm curious just which specific things Gingerich thinks they're doing that will make us "less free" or "less safe"? For comparison, maybe we should look at decades of "trickle down economics" and see if those work? I suspect Gingrich and Miller would say yes, but mountains of evidence indicate we're not measurably better off.

    1. Keyword arguments allow to define particular parameters as required. Should the parameter be missing, they also provide a way to set a default value. This is all done with pure Ruby.
    1. Sharpe claims that Englishmen “were able to…constitute themselves as political agents” by reading, whether or not they read about state affairs; for politics was “a type of consciousness” and the psyche “a text of politics.” “The Civil War itself became a contested text.” So reading was everything: “We are what we read.”

      The argument here is that much of the English Civil War was waged in reading and writing. Compare this with today's similar political civil war between the right and the left, but it is being waged in social media instead in sound bites, video clips, tweets, which encourage visceral gut reactions instead of longer and better thought out arguments and well tempered reactions.

      Instead of moving forward on the axis of thought and rationality, we're descending instead into the primordial and visceral reactions of our "reptilian brains."

    1. allow <slot> to be part of a slot
    2. I want to make some add-ons or wrappers on components e.g BigButton.svelte <script> import Button from './Button.svelte' </script> <Button fz="16" h="64" {...$$props}> <slot slot="prepend" name="prepend" /> <slot /> <slot slot="append" name="append" /> </Button>
    3. Related to #1824, can do <svelte:component this={Bar}> <slot></slot> <slot name="header" slot="header"></slot> </svelte:component> <script> import Bar from './Bar.svelte'; </script> as a forwarding workaround
    1. In 3.29.0 you can now use <slot slot='...'> to forward slots into a child component, without adding DOM elements.
    2. Would love to see passthrough slots to create superset components, for example Table and TableWithPagination (table slots for TableWithPagination could be passed through to Table).

    1. All standard UI events are forwarded on components, input events ("input" and "change") are forwarded on input components, and all MDC events are forwarded.
    2. You can add props to lower components and elements with things like input$maxlength="15".
    3. You can add actions to the components with use={[Action1, [Action2, action2Props], Action3]}.

    1. We should also allow passing unrecognised props to the rendered component. eg: tabindex might be required on some instances of a component, and not all. Why should developers have to add tabindex support to their components just that it may potentially be used

      Glad to hear this is solved now: $restProps

    2. You could do something like this instead while maintaining complete control of where different props go. <div class="wrapper> <div {...$$props} > ... </div> </div>

    1. All of the components should allow passing MUI configuration properties to them so that they can be easily customized. In the case of RFF and MUI components with deeply nested structures of multiple subcomponents, you can pass the properties in with sepecial top level properties. This is very hard to document fully without making a mess, so please refer to the source code and demos for examples.

    1. I have used this bash one-liner before set -- "${@:1:$(($#-1))}" It sets the argument list to the current argument list, less the last argument.

      Analogue of shift built-in. Too bad there isn't just a pop built-in.

    1. If this is the sort of dialectic we’re after in Nietzsche, thenwe will have a very hard time finding it,

      Since Deleuze misunderstands Hegel's dialectic, Cole can dismiss Deleuze's claim that Nietzche opposes Hegel's dialectic . . ..

    1. Universal

      There should be a broad understanding of all disciplines. We shouldn't expect the next great novelist to be good at math?

    2. It's

      First Argument: It is irrational to blindly promote STEM because not all children have an affinity for it. We should all choose jobs that we have a natural affinity for.

    1. Having long flourished in politics and religion, they have also spread into science and medicine

      Convincing arguments are based upon reasoning, of which, says Campbell, there are two kinds: scientific and moral.

    1. we’re both so focused on what the other is saying or doing that’s wrong that we barely hear anything else. There may have been a time when we might listen to what the other has to say politely, but those days are long gone.

      I believe this statement can sum up many if not almost all of the arguments we have with friends. We just focus on what they are doing wrong or saying wrong at the moment that we forget how much we actually have in common thus making us FRIENDS. I believe the author puts it greatly that the time to be polite is long gone. Could this because of the growing trend of social media?
