Re: Popularity v etc

What is the difference between popularity, honor, respect, prestige and good reputation? Also, isn't the faculty by which we distinguish them called discernment? Popularity is mostly a fallacy of argumentum populum. Having friends who are idiots is useless. Worse than useless. Whatever pleasure the...

Nobody is too stupid to converse with. That's downright superstitious.

President

What would you do if elected President of the United States of America? Would you add laws, subtract laws, alter laws? Would you add customs, subtract customs, alter customs? How would you improve the nation and the world?
