Re: Protests in Russia

Speaking of riots and protests, it doesn't look like Putin wants to let go of power any time soon. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/update-11-police-crack-down-on-russian-protests-against-jailing-of-kremlin-foe-navalny/ar-BB1d0Vsu?ocid=msedgntp I am PRETTY SURE that 'you', a human being, ACTUAL...

What is Anarchism?

Mark Bray, author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist’s Handbook,” said the graffiti that the Portland protesters left behind and the flags some carried included anarchist symbols. There is a “fair amount of overlap” between the ideologies of anarchists and antifascists. Both tend to be anti-government, o...

Absolutely.

The revolutionaries have their own agenda. When their side wins, they don't expect to end up in the back seat. They expect to drive.

Re: American election.

Well, lookee, lookee. What's going on here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXXctkfMb7k Did the Democrats think the Leftist extremists they supported would fall tamely into line behind them when they had power? Perhaps not, eh? Interesting. I read that the Proud Boys have turned against Trump as we...

Re: American election.

Let's suppose the election wasn't rigged. Let's suppose that. However, just as a speculation, if an American election were ever rigged, let's see what would follow. It would follow that somebody discovered they could rig an American election to produce the results they wanted. They could put a cand...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

TRUMP - the least approved of President ever. I'm currently watching Trump on his way out. Unprepentant, lying through his teeth, hyperbole, bollocks spewing from nhis mouth. Almost nothing he is saying is factual. He's even claiming credit for developing the vaccines!!! Here's a comparitive approv...

Re: Philosophy Now Forum Suggestions Box

1. Please put at least a limit on how many THREAD topics people can post - perhaps per month. Way too many morons R starting self-obsessed threads. 2. What happened to the Environment topic suggestion - pull yer finger out! I think an environmental philosophy forum would be a good idea for a philos...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

I am not an American, but I hated George Bush Jr. with rage and condemned him at every opportunity without much objective evidences. On hindsight I realized I was brainwashed by the media since at that time I only have access and listened to CNN plus other left leaning medias. How do you feel about...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

Warning. It may induce vomiting. https://www.varsity.co.uk/music/20344 The feminist musicologist Susan McClary infamously compared the recapitulation in his Ninth Symphony to “the throttling murderous rage of a rapist incapable of attaining release”. Where do people come up with this stuff? Overact...

Re: Trump worst prsident ever

Apparently there's a movement to 'cancel' Beethoven because he's 'too white'. (Yes, that's true). In that case it would be necessary to cancel everyone of the great composers because they were ALL white including Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn and especially Wagner. Do that and the human race will fin...

Re: Homosexuality & Christianity

Douglas Groothuis argues that it is possible for someone to be gay, happy, and committed to traditional sexual ethics. https://philosophynow.org/issues/141/Homosexuality_and_Christianity The bigger question is why they'd want to be "committed to traditional sexual ethics." That is a good question. ...
