Why do people who benefit from socialist policies argue against them? E.g. increasing the minimum wage.?
Working class people in the UK benefit massively from socialist policies like the weekend, the minimum wage, and workplace safety standards. I rarely see people argue that these were bad things to implement. So why do people argue against taking them further, or even keeping stuff like the minimum wage the same in real terms? If protecting the working class was good then, why is it not good now?9 AnswersPolitics1 year ago
Complimentarian christians; if men and women are equal but different, and women should be excluded from leadership roles in the church, what can women do that men should be excluded from? And I mean completely excluded the way women are institutionally excluded from church leadership. This is not a question designed to be adversarial, I genuinely have a desire to learn more about complimentarian theology.14 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 year ago
I play a relatively obscure sport at university. Because the sport is obscure, there aren't many teams, which means travel is expensive to play at tournaments. My sports club has gotten smaller recently, meaning that the burden of cost lies on fewer people, and I find myself really not wanting to go into my overdraft over this.
But if I don't go, the cost will be spread over an even smaller amount of people, making it harder for everyone else! We also run the risk of being unable to play at all if the number of people who can afford to go is just too small. There is also the fact that I am one of the better players on our team (not trying to brag or anything, I'm just one of the most experienced on the team). So if I don't go, I know for a fact it will hurt the team's chances competitively. But I really don't want to pay loads of money. What should I do? And how do I break it to the team if I decide it's just too costly?1 AnswerOther - Sports2 years ago
