Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

Thought crimes can be punished in many societies, that doesn't make them nazis. I'm sorry, in which of those 'morally superior' western countries with their freedom of expression, are thought crimes punishable? Though not punishable by death, thought crimes are punishable by long time jailing in Fr...

Murdering people for committing thought crimes is the behaviour of nazis. Thought crimes can be punished in many societies, that doesn't make them nazis.

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

To be fair, though, it sounds like he saw a movie on the Nazis which caused him to become incensed at their atrocities. I think that's probably a very human reaction, to become extremely angry at the Nazis for what they did. I mean, you yourself were suggesting he go kill himself which is pretty ex...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

Someone please explain to me: If you're not a nazi, how could one possibly want to protect the nazi scum? Nazis exterminated: * Anyone who wasn't a nazi. * Anyone who had a disability or illness that made the unfit for military service or labor. * Social-democrats and liberals. * Lots of other inno...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

Erm, so for the simple crime of being the wrong sort of person, without relation to anything they have actually done, you would send an entire class of persons into the gas chambers. You are an absolute, total, fucking moron. Nazism is nazism. They still believe in the same wrong stuff their predec...

Re: Cultural Relativism is wrong

Another lesson we can draw from this, is that all people who hold negative values - because there exists not only wrong opinions, but harmful wrong opinions - negative values - should not be allowed to exist. Again with this shit from you? I wish all current modern day nazis - members of National S...

Re: Re:

Sorry, I thought I was on a philosophy forum. Philosophy means love of wisdom. So I was momentarily awestruck by the enormous wisdom of those advocating for "cheating" on taxes. I was mind blown by the philosophical prowess of comments like "As for the law abiders: pffftt!". I couldn't help the "ch...

Re: Re:

I think I'll just start cheating on my taxes, then. Apparently it's the noble thing to do. :roll: What exactly is your purpose in joining a philosophy forum? Is it the joy of posing with the 'love of wisdom' crowd, or are you trying to consider complex matters and properly to justify arguments in r...

Re: Re:

"Cheating" on taxes would be unethical and akin to freeloading on the dime of those who meet their allotted tax obligations. That would be valid if the original point was that Henry "shouldn't" cherry pick, but is not applicable to "can't". There are things one can do, but mustn't, or shouldn't, an...

Re: Re:

"You can't cherry pick the good that benefit you and reject the obligations laid upon you to contribute." Of course I can: I can vote for folks and props that reduce my taxes, reduce my obligations, reduce my dependence; I can out & out cheat on my taxes; I can shelter properties from pryin' eyes; ...

Re: These are major assumptions that make sense

Suppose I invoke a new principle I have established called the Principle of the Fucking Obvious to declare that hotdogs are not sandwiches and Die Hard is the best XMas movie. I do so because neither judgment is worth expending effort on and this principle of just taking my initial instinct and dec...
