Re: Race versus culture

Race is meaningless. There is only culture. You can bring up baby into any culture seamlessly. The fact that s/he might look a little different might affect the outcome negatively - but only if people in the culture believe that race is a valid category. And so we see competent, intelligent and suc...

Re: Can you do cursive writing (US)?

Children in the UK never stopped learning to write. I find what this thread implies about the US educational system horrifying. Why do you find it horrifying? Is teaching children to write the same language, but in a different font, such an important milestone to their education? What practical use...

Re: Legislating Human Decency

Civilisation anonymises people. I think there is a genuine urge to co-operate, share and contribute to the community that has evolved over a million years and more. But when societal numbers increased beyond a certain number that allowed predatory psychopaths to take advantage and slip between the ...

Except the EDL don't think that.
No - they do not 'think' at all.
But most of their members feel that, whatever their official line.

God was holding a baseball bat.
I only received a broken nose where the arm I used to break the impact clashed with my KNOWS.

Re: Race versus culture

Whether race is 'meaningless' or not (especially when 'meaningless' is meaningless) culture certainly isn't. National identity isn't. Get enough people of a similar mind-set and appearance and the effect to outsiders is of virtually a single entity, like a termite hill. Thus the perception of the U...

Re: How God could fail to convey His message?

Knowing god immediately after getting knock on the head does not help your case. How many times have I gone over this for you Hobbes? You really do lack basic English comprehension. Once again, I have known God to exist since 1997. On the morning of Nov 13 2005 I climbed out of bed and the words "t...

Re: How God could fail to convey His message?

So you believe there are Christian ideologies that contradict my understanding that we should adhere to 10 commandments and believe in the words of Christ as expressed in the Gospels? Please to extrapolate on these 'other' ideologies! I don't believe what you claim here I believe. I did say that yo...

Re: How God could fail to convey His message?

Yeah, there are stupid people, who use emoticons, and there are smart people, who are first to point that out, but we still don't have an answer to how god had been unable to intelligently pronounce the things he wanted to say, and why he defaulted to a self-contradictory and unclear text as his me...

Re: Is this an example of Fascism?

Already been repeating myself for 3 pages so not sure what "can't define" is about? I've used the definitions of rightism given by Guenon and Evola, two very central figures in rightist philosophy. Not sure what more you could want? YOU Since it is clear that you do not have your Unless you can put...

Re: Is this an example of Fascism?

Leftism is simply the opposite. It denies the perennial philosophy and is instead materialistic, it denies the justice of castes and desires to see homogenization, and does not believe in a past or present perfection but believes there will be a utopia in the future. Yeah I get it, It's directly th...

Take a look.
I already did. Think positively, it might not get noticed. If it does, try shifting the blame onto Sean Bean.
