Re: Mr Can is talking nonsense again.

I think I got to his "God is dead" quote, and stopped reading. That sort of put me off of Nietzsche. I also tried to read "Thus Spake Zarathustra" and decided that Zarathustra was a narcissistic twit, and stopped reading after about 15 pages. If only you could have done the same...

Re: Mr Can is talking nonsense again.

Here I am. Oh, - are you talking about IC or N? I thought I was deplorable, not reprehensible. And have you interpreted any of Immanuel Can's copious product in some sort of way that he might not have predicted? I have no idea whether you are deplorable, reprehensibe, virtuous or risible; I don't k...

Re: Mr Can is talking nonsense again.

Immanuel Can wrote: Quote where Nietzsche argues his morality cannot legitimately be expressed in that sort of way.

Then quote where Immanuel Can ever argued all the sorts of ways in which his own morality cannot be legitimately expressed.
I bet I can find at least one reprehensible person who admires him.

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

You called it "a culture of abuse." Unless you like "abuse," I'm guessing you were criticizing. I'm not mad keen on "Immanuel Can", either, but don't take it as a criticism. I could call you Daisy if that were less pejorative. The fact that you used the word "dete...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

You're saying that criticizing the "culture of abuse" isn't supposed to be a "moral" assessment, or to "change anything"? Where is the criticizing? You're saying it's a "prevailing social reality," but isn't really bad No, I didn't say that. and isn't capable...

Oh, surely we're not recreating the Trump thread, yet again?!

If anybody wanted to know how cultures of abuse keep thriving, here it is:

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

[BTW "Culture of Abuse" is a long standing phrase...] It's not "long-standing" at all. It's just a postmodern, Leftist jargon phrase. Nobody even knows what it really means...least of all Leftists. You won't find the great philosophers of the past using such a phrase, at least n...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

I'm still curious about whether we can call Caligula the product of "mascularchy." I just did. He was raised in the triumphant Roman army. But where was this "culture" that is actually culpable? I didn't say it was "culpable" and I haven't "blamed" it for any...

mascularchies Also include Co. Russell Williams, Randolph Hearst, Yuri Andropov, Caligula and many thousands of bullies, mighty and petty, in many chains of command, in all kinds of organization, of all faiths, historical and periods and nationalities. BTW, a few, a very few females get into those c...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

Specific examples would only provide you with far too many nits to pick and an opportunity to choose one that can be seen as progressive. The point is, many different types of organization from armies to churches, banks to newspapers have this same caste structure and levels of protection, as outlin...

[S -Nobody was blaming culture. ] Sure somebody was. "Culture of abuse" was not my phrase, you'll note, but rather Dubious's coinage. As in organizational culture, distinct from the national culture, artistic culture, material culture, spiritual culture and Culture at large. However, if w...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

So, what's all the caterwauling about? Sadly, that's how it rolls: there are different standards, depending on what your politics are. I very much doubt it. As a rule, capitalist bosses across the political spectrum, tend to fire employees who cause them embarrassment and, much, oh so much worse, co...
