  • If you are so embarrassed by your repugnant beliefs that you can’t talk about them at work you should reconsider those beliefs

    • No no no that would be a progressive belief not a repugnant one. But good thought

      ok, I'll consult my timeless moral compass to know for sure which of my beliefs are on the right side of the future's history and discard the others

    The most difficult thing about being in a "diverse" tech setting is not being able to talk logically about politics without fear of illogical blowback.

      If you speak logically, then you‘re probably not a conservative and more of a centrist

      A lot of people mistake their side of the discourse as logical and get confused when people don't respond well.

    I wouldn't say a secret conservative per se, but I definitely don't feel comfortable talking about anything I believe outside of computer software with my coworkers.

      So I have no sympathy or solution, not my problem. Cool, got it!

      Dude. I have sympathy. There are plenty more people out there in misery and despair who dont cross our borders illegally. The US cannot fix the worlds problems. If anything, allowing unfettered ingress will not solve the problem, similar to the homeless in SF and LA. You cant give a man a fish, you need to teach it.

    At Netflix it’s okay to openly be radical progressive but you’ll never have a career if you are openly moderate or conservative. Because that’s how Silicon Valley work

      Genuine question from someone not in the US; are there people who think he's a good president ? I thought it was more a statement of "would would rather have a mad clown than a liberal, and here is proof?" thing.

      I agree though. Is super hard to be tolerant of every idea. When Google US was 100% Democrat, they got on with each other far better than after they changed their interview process to not do "culture fit", and went 60 republican/40% democrat. It ended up causing the culture war that's still playing out.

      I'll.nebrr forget having a conversation with a woman about capacity planning for a big service and she said "No point worrying about two years out, we will have been raptured by then".

      After recovering from the shock, all I could do was gently to ask we pretend the Rapture wasn't immanent, and keep going. My own culture was one where religion was a hobby that gave you something tondonon weekends, or something you mocked, so shutting myself down, to not hurt people who were genuine, was hard.

      In SF, yes I think he’s a good president with some great policy

      Doesn't matter if he's good or bad, point is you should not be afraid to have a civil conservation about it and not always have to agree with those who hate him for fear of being called a racist 🙄

      Lol good luck with that. Tbh, no politics should be discussed unless you’re around intellectuals. So probably never at work lul
