Re: the limits of fascism

There are plenty who do. But I notice that the Davos Socialists aren't among them. What is this 'Davos' conspiracy? Not a "conspiracy." It's a public fact. See https://www.weforum.org/events/the-davos-agenda-2021 Note that the current dictator of China is one of their charter members. Oh,...you mea...

Re: the limits of fascism

Capitalists have no compassion. Funny. Socialism has spread misery and oppression across the world. Capitalism, meanwhile, has been defeating world poverty. And you say it's the Capitalists who are the bad people? I'll stack up my microenterprise charities against your Stalins and Maos any day. :D ...

Re: collective ownership

We need SOME minimal means of personal private space as our 'own'. The Earth (including private spaces) though is not 'owned' by anything. It is an artificial construct. Without 'laws' or 'direct force', what is owned beyond one's literal own body and acts they use to survive, means that a claim is ...

Re: The Capitol building is breached by the Retrumplicans NOW!

...if 'ownership' matters, our system is 'owned' by the Queen. Hogwash. :D You can't "own" people. And the Queen gave up her official governmental role long ago, even in England. Nowadays the "monarch" only signs whatever is given her by parliament, and doesn't do it for Canada anymore at all. Get ...

Re: the limits of fascism

The first thing noticeable of those with such compassion will be those who give away their wealth. There are plenty who do. But I notice that the Davos Socialists aren't among them. What is this 'Davos' conspiracy? Is this something you got from QAnon? You already dissed those wealthy who support t...

Re: The Capitol building is breached by the Retrumplicans NOW!

I read that Julie Payette resigned from your Viroy/King/Queenship last month. I believe you'll find that Canada only has a queen as a figurehead...she actually has no real power. She's a kind of "Uncle Sam" figure, not a true head-of-state anymore. Canada is a Parliamentary Democracy, and the true ...

Re: the limits of fascism

I don't really know why. They're not exemplars of Socialist economics. They're merely socialized elements totally dependent on a broadly Capitalistic system. As such, they make no argument for Socialist economics, because they're on life-support from Capitalism. As I stated, the UK and all other we...

Re: Medically Assisted Suicide for the Mentally Ill?

Mental illnesses are cognitive or affective, in which mood affects decision making (I.e. logic). A mental illness that does not affect decision making could not even afflict a philosophical zombie. Logic-related mental illness is like pressure-related flat tire. If you want to talk about people who...

Re: Medically Assisted Suicide for the Mentally Ill?

You’re right. I understand depression and mental illness differently than you. I see depression as a clinical diagnosis and mental illness as a cluster of clinical diagnoses. I thought that the Canadian Senate would be considering these things to be clinical entities, as I do, if they were consider...

Re: Medically Assisted Suicide for the Mentally Ill?

I think that many of those who act out extreme have to be understood without bias to their perspectives. I agree, but we must remember that the perspective of the mentally impaired may be the result of altered decision making capabilities. We must take into account the situation where the disease l...

Re: Medically Assisted Suicide for the Mentally Ill?

For non-terminal mental or physical illnesses there should be no way for MAID to be applied. What can make a mental illness terminal is suicide. For people with no physical compromise there is no need for assistance with suicide. What about the cases I mentioned of those who act out to kill themsel...
