Re: Will Trump's border wall keep out all undesirables?

I must say that I've always been baffled by what Americans actually mean when they bleat on ad nauseum about their 'freedom' (as if theirs is the only country that has it). Most people are intelligent enough to know that 'freedom' has very little meaning unless it's measured on a scale of gradually ...

"And what exactly do you mean anyway?"

By 'sovereignty'? Consult a dictionary.
In what sense are you using with regard to the US? You could be referring to one of several situations.

To you: absolutely.

To me: just necessary.
Not 'to me'. It just is. Who else rants about their 'sovereignty' these days? And what exactly do you mean anyway?

Re: Will Trump's border wall keep out all undesirables?

PhilX: "How effective will Trump's border wall be?" which implies a bunch of questions. In terms of efficacy I think there are two main issues: can it built and can it be traversed or gone around. There are geographic, political, budgetary, and legal problems with building it. As to its ability to ...

How do you know? She was actually human, despite what your fantasies. Your petty religious conservative views wouldn't have gone down well with her, of that I am certain. You don't understand Simone or me and yet allow your misguided egoism to assume you do. Pure progressive arrogance. She would ha...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

A person has a choice when confronted with something they don't understand. They can keep an open mind or mindlessly condemn to protect ones ego. Secularists here choose to mindlessly condemn. Your loss. Who doesn't understand who? I think, Nick-A, that you are perfectly understood--loud and clear....

Re: Scapegoats for Secular Progressives

Uwot Transcending the nature of the beast is not bending over for it. Rather it is knowledge of the forces which keep us a slave to it through the power of imagination. Where nature uses force for her purposes, Man has the potential to consciously use force for a greater good than blindly participa...

Re: Scapegoats for Secular Progressives

Uwot By all means change yourself into a "conscious being", that thinks there is no choice but to bend over for The Great Beast. Thanks to people who are prepared to challenge power, it is still, in places, a free world. Transcending the nature of the beast is not bending over for it. Rather it is ...

You seem to think that Italians are impulsive and passionate.
This is a stereotype.
They are cool and cunning as well. They care about style a lot and about beauty.
Oh dear. The ''Progressive'' thought police will be down on you like a ton of bricks. Or will they?? :?

What a strange 'coincidence' then that as Greta has pointed out, your views 'just happen' to coincide with right-wing religious Republicans. Have you ever voted Democrat?
