Re: The Futurology of Fuckin' PC

Note this, no debate possible with PC'ers; FACT: We can't have civil debate with leftist and the biased media https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5gHLOtEshM Very true. Likewise, the PC'ers cannot have a civil debate with the right. There's too much shouting coming from both sides. Really, admit it, we...

Re: The Futurology of Fuckin' PC

Before you bring out your arsenal of arguments about PC ideology, let's consider this thread to be about the future of PC, regardless of whether you embrace it or pine for its demise. There are customs that were considered to be normal behavior in the past, that are now inappropriate to exhibit. Du...

"Have you ever had to empty a latrine's shit bucket?"

I've changed diapers, cleaned up vomit, unclogged toilets: can't imagine a shit bucket is any worse.
About 10 gallons of shit?

Re:

Getting rid of segregation in the US had NOTHING to do with Political Correctness. The Civil Rights activists put their lives on the line for a genuine cause. There was an enormous amount of personal risk involved. Why is PC so difficult for people to understand? Writing an internet blurg about the...

Care to say more?

What folks?
How do they get wise?
Is there a metaphorical switching tool that applies here?

Re: What is Belief?

There may or may not be something amiss about age, but concerning the question of what is belief there have been many spot on comments. Essentially, all of the comments in this thread, save anything posted by age. A heuristic applies here, namely that the majority wins.

Re: Why do lower class people oppose Basic Income?

In my experience, whenever a position makes no sense, it is because the position is based on emotion, not logical thinking. Because said position cannot be deduced through logical argument, it would usually be expressed as a belief. I can suggest one possible emotional basis that underpins a paradox...

Re: The Secret of Seinfeld’s Humor

At the time the series aired, I found the primary characters and their scenarios to be ridiculous in an annoying way. But now, I also read the related articles by Boersema, Madigan and Soble. A picture began to form of a common theme: what makes something funny is mediated by emotions, but beyond th...

Re: Why are religions still tax exempt?

The principle of separation of church and state was codified in the States by proposing that there be no state-supported religion. Not having an officially endorsed state religion does not rationally mean that government and religion can have no contact whatsoever. For example, there is no logical r...

Re: Political correctness and snowflake generation

If only PC meant Polite and Considerate, all but the uncouth could sign up for it. But, alas, Political Correctness has gone too far. So far that, whether you are pro or con, you can see that this is now a political movement that aims to do more than outlaw housing discrimination. If PC were only ab...
