Re: Race versus culture

I see my remarks on Katya Zashtopik have also been deleted. I'm not willing to participate in a group that defends idiotic name-calling but censors discovery. This is my last reply here.

Re: Race versus culture

All societies harbour folk tales of heroes. Spiderman and Obama are not Heroic. Heroic has two rather different meanings, one meaning is the normative English usage, the other is the warrior culture of our ancestors and which some today still celebrate. 1. "heroic" https://dictionary.cambridge.org/...

Re: Race versus culture

... (despite, in the UK, their co-religionists having murdered 150 British people since 2000) ... Where do you get this figure from? The figure must be enormously higher. In Colin Wilson's Criminal history of mankind it is argued that crimes should not be categorized into political versus common an...

Re: Race versus culture

I don't think you need anything very sophisticated to explain the power and spread of Islam. Mohammed was, like Jesus, a Jew with a belief in his own special place in God's heart. As the earlier bits of the Koran show, he tried to persuade other Jews to follow him. He failed and resorted to compuls...

Re: Race versus culture

The mystery, to me, is why the Muslims who live in the West and enjoy liberty and tolerance, (despite, in the UK, their co-religionists having murdered 150 British people since 2000) don't rise up against the repressive regimes that govern in their name. There are multiple levels this question has ...

Re: Race versus culture

Wow! You definitely haven't read Spengler even tho' you like to source him. Meaning? I just watched this talk, Oswald Spengler, The decline of the West and Islamic State , https://youtu.be/i9pjlgMbLIY Clearly some points I've made are Spenglarian: European Christianity as fundamentally European des...

Re: Race versus culture

For those who may be interested in the topic of how and why islamic civilization turned the Middle-East from the center of the world and the apotheosis of civilization into a garbage dump, the fifth and final episode of the very excellent series History of Islam has just been released. The same thes...

Re: Race versus culture

he is just a propagandist for ... More personal attacks... No no, an observation or are you saying you're not re-posting and promoting far-right propaganda?

Re: Race versus culture

The ethic of Jesus is socialist. It isn't that hard to see Jesus as the anti-Hero, he flatly negates the center value of the ancients, ἔγνωκας ἀνδρὸς ἀρετὴν εἶναι νικᾶν τοὺς μὲν φίλους εὖ ποιοῦντα, τοὺς δ᾽ ἐχθροὺς κακῶς (Memorabilia 2.6.35, link ) at Matthew 5:44 or Luke 6:27. What is interesting h...

Re: Verbal abuse and cyber-bullying on Philosophy Now forums

That would depend if they had any philosophical bent or not and whether they were posted in the correct place I think. Or at least that's how I used to mod here and I think it still is the case by and large. Although there seems to be one new hard and fast rule and that is paedophilia is not to be ...

Re: Race versus culture

Seleucus, your interpretation of the life of Jesus is incorrect. He was not a wimp but came to bring a sword. In defence of the poor and downtrodden. Unlike Trump who cares not at all for the poor and downtrodden, except insofar as they vote for him. As for Fanon, the alienation from their traditio...

Re: Race versus culture

Seleucus wrote, besides his juvenile idea about what constitutes a hero : Hitler and Stalin were 'saviours' (saviors) of the common productive working man. I'm not sure which your point is, are you saying saying something is wrong about my understanding of heroic ethics, http://www.sparknotes.com/l...
