Hey guys! i'm not a native english speaker and I'm trying to improve my english skills. I've been learning english for almost 10 years now and i'm pretty confident in writing, speaking and understanding the language. However, I'm currently searching for nice idioms, metaphors or proverbs to use in every day life. Of course, I learned many at school, but I would like to learn some more colloquial ones, which people nowadays actually use. Which are your favorite idioms ecc and which would you classify as the most "important" or most popular ones? Thanks for your help! (i don't know if this is the right category for this, but I found this the most appropriate one)

The Cost of Being Convinced

5 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
When debating, we usually consider that opinions are merely resulting of being exposed to logical arguments. And understanding them. If arguments are logical and understood, people will change their mind. Anybody having been connected long enough on the internet knows that it never happens. Everybody stays on his own position. But why? The reason is simple: changing opinion has a cost. A cost that we usually ignore. A good exercice is to try to evaluate this cost before any debate. For yourself and for the counterpart. Let’s take a music fan that was convinced that piracy hurts artists. Convincing him that it’s not the case and that piracy is not immoral means to him that, firstly, he was dumb enough to be brainwashed by major companies and that, secondly, the money spent on CD is a complete waste. Each time you will tell him "Piracy is not hurting artists and not immoral", he will ear "You are stupid and you wasted money for years". This is quite a high cost but not impossible to overcome. It means that arguments should not only convince him, but also overcome that cost. Worst: intuitively, we take the symmetry of costs for granted. Let’s take the good old god debate.

New David Graeber interview

48 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
By the '60s, most people thought that robot factories, and ultimately, the elimination of all manual labor, was probably just a generation or two away. Everyone from the Situationists to the Yippies were saying "let the machines do all the work!" and objecting to the very principle of 9-to-5 labor. In the '70s, there were actually a series of now-forgotten wildcat strikes by auto workers and others, in Detroit, I think Turin, and other places, basically saying, "we're just tired of working so much." This sort of thing threw a lot of people in positions of power into a kind of moral panic. There were think-tanks set up to examine what to do-basically, how to maintain social control-in a society where more and more traditional forms of labor would soon be obsolete. A lot of the complaints you see in Alvin Toffler and similar figures in the early '70s-that rapid technological advance was throwing the social order into chaos-had to do with those anxieties: too much leisure had created the counter-culture and youth movements, what was going to happen when things got even more relaxed? It's probably no coincidence that it was around that time that things began to turn around, both in the direction of technological research, away from automation and into information, medical, and military technologies (basically, technologies of social control), and also in the direction of market reforms that would send us back towards less secure employment, longer hours, greater work discipline. New interview with the best political and philosophical thinker alive today: http://www.hamptoninstitution.org/bullshit-jobs.html. Please use this thread to discuss his ideas and how right they are.

Buddhism was cool, but was not perfect, so I gave it up. Are there any philosophies like it, but are more secular?

“I merely say that all reading for pleasure is escape, whether it be Greek, mathematics, astronomy, Benedetto Croce, or The Diary of the Forgotten Man. To say otherwise is to be an intellectual snob, and a juvenile at the art of living.” ? Raymond Chandler I agree, do you?
