Re: American election.

What do these slogans have to do with me? I said nothing like that. I meant that your support of wokism includes the necessity for these slogans. Where have I said anything about supporting wokism? Don't make up crap about me, Nick. Otherwise you will lose out to the great unwashed or the deplorble...

Re: American election.

There are many paths to the same "places". And not every destination is at it seems. So it would be a lot more truthful for you to question all of it, rather than making up your one-sided stories of good and bad, which unsurprisingly position you on the side of good. "By Any means possible" "The en...

Re: American election.

It has become secondary to the secular imperative: "By Any Means Necessary". I'm afraid this is true. I have met far too many Leftist ideologues who clearly believe -- and practice -- that any action that is offered in alleged service of "social justice" or "equality" or "anti-racism" becomes moral...

Re: Protagoras vs Socrates

“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.” ― Albert Camus It is true. We cannot be ourselves. We create a personality that does it for us. Yet it was argued by Protagoras that this Man, hidden behind our personalities, "is the measure of all things." “Give me beauty in the inward soul...

Eod Does this mean that IYO the intellect is the constant form of Man? Is the intellect having nothing better to do than arguing about Trump, the seat of the the soul of Man?
