  • Guy advocates for killing viable children outside the womb- post birth- and everyone’s up in arms because he’s racist. Being a racist isn’t worse than attempting to legalize murder of innocent children. I’m beyond disgusted with my governor and my state.

  • A lot of articles about Kondo have been extremely negative and I feel like they’re all missing the point. I’m 28 and I’ve been 100lbs and 5’3” since I was 13. I haven’t outgrown anything, I’ve maybe had two items ever get holes in them as an adult (aside from socks), and my style has changed a few times

    A lot of articles about Kondo have been extremely negative and I feel like they’re all missing the point. I’m 28 and I’ve been 100lbs and 5’3” since I was 13. I haven’t outgrown anything, I’ve maybe had two items ever get holes in them as an adult (aside from socks), and my style has changed a few times. In short I’ve accumulated a lot of clothes, and anytime I tried to get rid of things I was overwhelmed by the task. Trying to pick out my clothes in the morning and find something specific was exhausting. I used Kondo’s method on my clothes and got rid of 75% of it. This morning I woke up and found the shirt I wanted without even having to turn on the light or put on my glasses, much less pull out a pile of clothes to find that shirt somewhere in the middle of a stack. I look at my closet and even though there’s less, every item of clothing makes me happy. My closet is visually appealing, which eliminates a lot of my stress, and I’m saving time. I Kondoed my pantry and now that I can see everything, no can of tuna will get forgotten about and left behind to expire. Thank you for writing an article that doesn’t trash a method that works, created by a woman exudes positive energy and motivation.

  • Or maybe it’s because Kondo has made a lifelong study of organizing things and is passionate about it and therefor has a lot of great advice for people who are wanting to organize and declutter. Cultural exchange is a two way street and this article is a perfect example of people overthinking things

    Or maybe it’s because Kondo has made a lifelong study of organizing things and is passionate about it and therefor has a lot of great advice for people who are wanting to organize and declutter. Cultural exchange is a two way street and this article is a perfect example of people overthinking things. Kondo isn’t selling us Japanese soul, she’s selling us her passion and practicality.

  • This article is about an “asylum-seeker” who’s been in the US for over two decades; when exactly was he going to apply for asylum? You’re supposed to apply when you get here. He also says that he doesn’t even qualify for asylum as there was no danger or persecution in his home country which he refuses

    This article is about an “asylum-seeker” who’s been in the US for over two decades; when exactly was he going to apply for asylum? You’re supposed to apply when you get here. He also says that he doesn’t even qualify for asylum as there was no danger or persecution in his home country which he refuses to name. So he knows he has no asylum case but is still claiming to be an asylum seeker. This article is biased to the point of being dishonest. This man is clearly just an illegal immigrant, not an asylum seeker, or else he’d have applied for asylum 25 years ago when he got to the US and Trump wasn’t President. This is just lazy, dishonest journalism.

  • I’m not sure that I buy into this supposed connection between a minimalist, organized home and wanting to post everything on social media and letting social media rule our lives and decisions.

    I’m not sure that I buy into this supposed connection between a minimalist, organized home and wanting to post everything on social media and letting social media rule our lives and decisions. I watched the show and it had great tips for organizing things so that it’s easier to see what you have without pulling out a whole pile of clothes. I think the show is a success because the method she uses saves people a lot of time, and it’s easier to focus when your home isn’t cluttered, not because of some desire to have our homes be visually appealing to show our personal success. As far as people getting scammed in the Fyre incident, people have been getting scammed throughout human history by one or another type of dishonest person and have long been persuaded by celebrity/model endorsement. It’s not that millennials are more susceptible to being scammed because of our visual motivations, we just spend more time on social media and scammers are aware and have targeted those platforms. Scammers evolve with the rest of society. New scams will always work better than old scams because people aren’t aware of them yet.

  • I appreciate the overall message of this article, but I don’t think that “smiling” should be referred to as behavior in need of excusing. Some people smile when stressed or uncomfortable. This child did not do or say anything to provoke Phillips to approach him and oddly play the drum while staring him

    I appreciate the overall message of this article, but I don’t think that “smiling” should be referred to as behavior in need of excusing. Some people smile when stressed or uncomfortable. This child did not do or say anything to provoke Phillips to approach him and oddly play the drum while staring him down with unrelenting eye contact. If that happened to me I would be incredibly confused and nervous and wonder what that person was going to do next. The fact that all the kid did was smile is surprising to me. Why do you think he should take his hat off, a symbol of his beliefs, and show meekness and respect to a stranger for no apparent reason? What had Phillips done in these videos to warrant a special respectful gesture? He intimidated a child without cause in an attempt to provoke a reaction. I’d like to see you take off your hat and bow your head to every person who approaches you with unstated and unclear intentions, personally I hold onto my pepper spray a little tighter. There is no inexcusable behavior aside from that shown by the media and celebrities who have put the lives of children in danger based on a false narrative.
