Re: Philosophical Misanthropy

Reading the article, it gives a way to systematize misantropy. You may become an angry activist or go into the woods to escape the evil world. The article gives different philosophers view on the subject. But one thing that should have interested the philosophers - will the Misantrope agree that he ...

Re: Performance Is The Thing

Re: Christianity & Homosexuality

I've wished sometimes that there were such things as secular monasteries, or else monasteries for agnostics. What a charming idea...a quiet place for people to divest themselves of worldly distractions and undertake deep reflection on their situation, regardless of their particular ideological bent...

Re: Christianity & Homosexuality

I appreciate this article and I think the basic point is one that I can agree with. However, there are some issues with this particular argument. First, Christianity never speaks with one voice, which I think the author acknowledges. But even lumping conservative Christians together as a group may ...

Re: Beyond Humanism?

Read the article, and read the later comments here. humanism will take care of most the objections here and in the article, when the objects of objections occur humanity will take measures - weighted against all other matters. Humanity is organic in the sense that Nozick mentions. And is getting eve...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

Hardly anyone has died with Covid in unlocked Sweden. What like 0.03%? It's a fucking a joke. On top of that almost all of them were old with terminal illnesses who would've died anyway. And on top of that, a lot of them weren't actually tested for the virus, they were believed to have Covid. It is...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

The left or establishment has created a new class of people, the sick . The sick have less rights than the healthy . They can be forcibly quarantined and treated . And assuming everyone is sick until proven healthy, is every bit as insane as assuming everyone is guilty until proven innocent. The po...

Re: Sick until proven healthy

... We at the right want to take responsibility and avoid the disease. ... You can't avoid this disease this will only happen if there is a vaccine. All you can do is to try and delay the spread so your health services dont collapse. Play with words... act as if there will be a vaccine around or so...

Re: US's Covid Stats - an Embarassment

But a good deal of people here in sweden blame our Stadsminister - as well as the authority for health. To be true though, everybody seems just undecided, reading articles about curves, flock immunity, probability of a “second and third wave” and what not. Here everybody is a Stadsminister with all...

From aestetics - some Swedish experiences

Wrote like this there, really nothing for aesthetics: Yep, people are dying like flies over here compared to other Scandinavian countries. A lot of talk of “flock immunity” and what not, our medical authority is very much on a non-lockdown tone. We should shelter our old blah blah. Well, The Virus i...
