w:AS, if life is a struggle, kill yourself not others.
as: I don't understand your reasoning here. You think it is wrong to "kill" something that cannot sustain life without a host body, but you would want a woman or old person to kill or be killed. These are actual living beings not just the fantasy of future life. Cells don't even know there is a sun...they are not aware of life or death...an actual living breathing person is.
It's simple economics. Life is precious, we experience it once. The older we get, the less time we have, the more we have experienced. If the choice is between new and old life the old life can move on and share a little. My position is that there is room for all.
I think this all boils down to the same old story...people would rather punish than have compassion. What is more they use their fantasy world of religion to justify it. It's predictable.
Compassion for who is the issue.
AS: She doesn't need sympathy...she needs cash. Unfortunately it doesn't look like help will be coming soon...the republicans in my country just voted down a bill that would have helped.
Maybe her friends/local community can help?
W:I'll be sure to quote this to you as you offer your views on a philosophy site on a variety of topics to ensure that you are qualified to offer them and are not a low down dirty person who preaches from the pulpit when they know they have zero chance of ever being placed in such a position.
AS: Quote this to me all you like Wootah. I know I am a low down dirty person...that is the difference between us.
I wouldn't do it (it would be 'not nice'). Since I think one of the fundamentals of my belief system is that I am a sinner then we can both claim that low ground. I suspect your use of low down dirty person is different in the two uses of it that you proffered.
