No, yours is an "imaginary person argument." You keep telling me about all these people who are allegedly horribly infected with conservatism, and yet can't find them.
I think we found them, my fascist, ignorant friend.

Re: American election.

Well, look, really, who cares. The conservative party is a lost cause not worthy of discussion. It has always be...

Re: American election.

Immanuel Can wrote No. Where? Imaginary groups obviously don't count. Who are these dangerous "conservatives"? This is called a straw person argument: It is not about conservatives wild in the streets, as if such a thing were the only thing to warrant concern) It is about a new wave of conservativi...

Re: American election.

Immanuel Can wrote Where? I see no such groups. They hover in the minds and imagination of the 30 million or so. True, David Duke and his ilk have seen little light of day, but the Proud Boys have, and have been literally endorsed by Trump. But really, not this. One has to think of a mentality that...

Re: American election.

Immanuel Can wrote What is this "conservatism" of which you speak, O? I never seem to meet any of these dread "ultra-rightists" that the Left is always banging on about. If such exist at all, they certainly have no profile in the news at all, except in the same way: as a Leftists bogeyman, not a re...

Re: American election.

In the wake of the biggest betrayal, the national mood is: no more trust, no more compromise. Justification isn’t shared by alternative worlds. Something to keep in mind. Law enforcement and military, both by definition and view, are conservative. Dark times ahead. Seems change never comes unless t...

Re: American election.

Immanuel Can wrote I don't know where you live, but unless it's way out in the boonies, you know that people are fleeing densely packed cities. And not just private citizens; businesses are also realizing that lockdowns are immeasurably worse in big cities, and moving out to the suburbs and beyond....

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlightened?

Atla wrote Yeah you couldn't handle my philosophical objections, not that you ever had a chance as someone who read a lot of Western philosophy and got lost in the endless nonsense, instead of learning and unifying all the relevant scientific knowledge, and then working out philosophy from there.

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlightened?

Atla wrote Neither apriority features of human minds, nor ethicality of human cultures are universal features of the world, what are you babbling about? Apriority refers to apodictic principles that are intuitively coersive. Take causality, or take logic: these do not allow for the possibility of r...

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlightened?

Atla wrote Ethics isn't a universal feature of the world (obviously), we covered that. Ethics isn't a universal feature of the world? Why, whatever are you talking about? Universal in the sense of apriority? Or in the sense that ethical issues are present in any and all cultures, in the same sense ...

Re: What does it feel like to be Enlightened?

Atla wrote But you haven't put forth anything so far, except vague references about foundations within phenomenology, even though anyone with some grip knows that philosophy has no foundations deep down. I have reviewed them. Here is one recent one: But what is anthropic? This is an empirical idea,...
