Re: righteous rebellion

You assume people can freely choose where to live in the first place, which is rarely the case. It makes more sense to count it as where they do Not want to live. They don't always have a great choice but they almost always have bad ones. What? Are you saying the tally of all person's votes should ...

Re: righteous rebellion

in context, what does what is fair for ALL people mean, lace? That every person's vote counts toward the environment they want to live in. If more people live in certain areas, it's because that's what appeals to MORE PEOPLE. Areas with less people should not be able to force their uniquely specifi...

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlighten

I want to hear your shocking reality in case any of it rings true for me. Do you believe in a supreme being who created all things? ...like a God? I do not...I used to, but not now after another awakening, probably my last awakening. No, I do not believe in anything like that. So even though I do n...

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlighten

Might there be another way to see, through which you would enjoy and appreciate the game? No not really, I've been closing my eyes for too long, being in denial. Denial of what? Is there a singular conclusion/reality/truth? But then I stumbled upon another way of seeing ...and I am intelligent enou...

Re: righteous rebellion

gerrymandering, the electoral collage, the national reserve, Citizen's United, the Paris Accord, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. Nobody i know agreed to have society become a rigged game with arbitrary, bullshit, and counter-productive rules. Agreed. Isn't it strange that many people who want LESS LAWS AN...

Isn't that just what a nihilist would say? :lol:

Or just about anyone, for that matter, describing the way they see things?

What is "real" for a "realist"?

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlighten

This natural universe is a sadist evil blood thirsty killing machine. Totally pointless and meaningless. That's one way of seeing it. In this Universe/life/experience of vast possibilities... as potential is explored and played out on a stage, perhaps?... the glorious and the horrific... How could ...

Re: Trump's 46 minutes....To Censor or not to Censor?...

The question is to whether there is a point at which censorship SHOULD occur in light of my own disapproval of it normally. ...whether given something you can imagine one can say can be so affective in a way that misleads others to harm? I do not like censorship either. But I DO think there are tim...

Re: American election.

Nick, it seems that whenever you cannot answer the points that are put to you, you start babbling about Simone and how you worship her. It seems to be a security blanket for you. "Left"... "Right"... are false ideas and limited labels. People are people... leaning in COUNTLESS directions. Your need ...

Re: American election.

That's great if you know of one valuable path for something meaningful to you. There are many valuable paths, and countless people who know of them. You and your path are not uniquely/divinely superior/significant. So you should stop pushing it on people, and using it to condemn them. It isn't a ma...

Re: American election.

You wrote There are many paths to the same "places". And not every destination is at it seems. So it would be a lot more truthful for you to question all of it, rather than making up your one-sided stories of good and bad, which unsurprisingly position you on the side of good. They don't. Your word...
