Re: Basic Human Rights

What are some basic human rights that we can all agree to? For example, can we all agree that anyone accused of a crime should receive a fair trial? If not, what would be some problems with the above right whereby it should not be a basic human right? What other rights can we pretty much all agree ...

Re: Racial Alternatives

Ethnicity, genderism, nationalism and other forms of tribalism and "group think" is at best vanity and at worse a ball and chain. Diversity and multiculturalism is all very well, but when you make the purpose of your life an urge to follow arbitrary and perceived differences that you share with othe...

What does mathematics have to do with the nature of human thought?

Re: right to repair

Ownership is certainty of access and control. The right to repair is implicit in ownership. Without such a right, ownership is not a meaningful concept. Companies which try to push right to repair legislation are Thieves!, selling you a product while wresting away everything that makes your purchas...

Re: the righteous tyrant

I think I understand what authority is warranted, in your view; what I don't understand is how that authority affects our agreeing to be governed. It's very simple: a morally good or right thinking person accords with legitimate authority, where such exists. Sieg heil! Sieg heil! Sieg heil! Sieg he...

Re: the righteous tyrant

...a parent has legitimate authority to watch their child all the time, demand absolute obedience and threaten hideous punishment for failure.... Heh. :D Well, this is perverse. No such thing was said or implied. It's your pure fabrication. I can see I'm wasting my time. You should try a bit harder...

Re: the righteous tyrant

Man, you're determined not to give any information, aren't you? So either you don't know any, or you're ashamed of what you do know, I guess. Which "precedent"? (By the way, "precedents" are, in law, not actually binding; they're at most, a loose indication of prior judgments that may or may not be...

Re: the righteous tyrant

Good. Then you can put me back "on track," simply by explaining what you DO believe is the source and nature of Boris's legitimate authority. Fire away. Precendent, which he has flouted.

Heh. :D You don't know what you're talking about, I can see. So I'll help you out. You're trying to say he exceeded the mandate the voters gave him . But if the voters "gave" the mandate, then it means you're a democrat...you don't think authority resides in Boris, or in somebody who appointed him,...
