Re: Toxic Gender Philosophy

Interesting analysis. - I wonder if a man who declares his gender is woman, has the brain scan of a woman? Yeah, interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if they did, as it makes sense. Hard to say. On the one hand that sounds like a man tapping the heels of Dorothy's ruby slippers together and wishing...

Re: Civility

Statement of intent: i refer only to the historical fact that at one time the negro was employed to harvest cotton from the fields, and that many negroes are now employed in the entertainment and sports industries. Please do not infer from these statements that I am a racist. Of course not. That me...

Re: Civility

Consider this. Some folks consider that the study of psychology, means the study of abnormal psychology. That is the principle. That principle extends to all things. Some folks immediately leap to the aberrant, to the twisted, to the weird, to the abnormal ... to the freaky. Ergo, leaping to psycho...

Re: True Story of the Day

I've seen them around but never been in one. I kinda figured that's what was going on. If not for notions of we deserve it, I wouldn't go to restaurants at all. At least I don't have to go to brunch. Fast-food prices (drive-though) have changed dramatically. Burgers made in the back room by strange...

Re: Civility

Used to be a man could make a living with a factory job. One of my first slave-jobs. Straight time during the week, time and a half on Saturday, double time on Sunday. In other words, to make a living I lived at the factory, which was quite hot since it extruded metal into frames for portals, which...

Re: Music

Nice job, Teka, but different. Perfect conventional lounge voice. The composer’s version is perfect in another way (no wrong notes) that doesn’t rely on technical perfection.

Re: The Primal Existential Crisis

Well, I suppose that's one way to look at it, Age, in theory. However, a child who respects an adult's capacity to do them harm, will steer clear of the adult out of respect for their own welfare, or risk failing the Darwin Test ... and the child need not even know of Darwin for a pass or fail. Perh...

So, you still believe that all children should respect abusive adults/parents.
Not respecting what harms you is a Darwin Test for children, and adult too, come to think of it. Those who don't realize that are likely to fail the test by not passing it, at all.

Re: Civility

It's often noted by those who deal with them how 'civil' serial killers are. Politicians are generally 'civil', especially when they are ordering the mass murder of thousands, and even milions, of people. Hitler and Stalin were apparently 'civil' and even charming when it suited them. Makes sense o...

So, the distinction you note ... evil civility vs good civility.

Good civility comes from the heart and intends no harm, even though the reception of the civility may be scrambled with static.

For example:
