Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

Re: The Struggle for the Soul of America

There is a struggle going on for the soul of America. ... Really don't care as one, 'souls' are nonsense on stilts and two, there appears to always be a conflict going on in America. Normally you solve it with an external enemy but looks like you haven't got a real one at present so the contradicti...
