1. Hey Guest !

    Welcome to the new Higherside Forums. To start participating, you'll need a password for the system. You can get one established by clicking the "forgot password" link, and a URL to create one will be sent to your THC+ email. Your username should be the same, but these are now two independent systems. As a result, changes to your THC+ username/password will not be reflected in your THC Forum username and vise versa. Also, as a bonus, your ability to participate in the forums will continue beyond the life of your THC+ membership.

    Enjoy the upgrade! Users can now make a full profile, start conversations (private messages) between each other, give and track likes, utilize trophies, conduct polls, write public statuses, comment on statuses of others, subscribe to forums, receive alerts, see latest activity, share media, and much more!

    Andrew Yang at SXSW 2019 on Automation of labour and UBI

    So it's official, Andrew Yang has reached the required 65,000 individual donations to make it on the debate stage. Wow.

    I was more of a Tulsi Gabbard person, seeing that she has her eyes on the MIC (and she had the balls, as Yang did, to go on the JRE).
    I just don't know her clear goals on how to achieve that de-militarization, as opposed to Yang who has three, clearly outlined policies that focus on fixing the bigger puzzle (macro).

    I get asked sometimes, why I care about US politics so much although I'm not a resident, nor a citizen, and there are many reasons, but I think it boils down to 1) Influence on the worldwide ripple-effect. 2) I hate to say it, but it still feels like freedom country (though for how long I do not know..) with huge caveats.
