Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

i only watch YT documentaries, OLD (pre 1980's) movie, pre 2000 TV shows - on DVD and of course i still view foreign flicks - foreigners are not infected with PC, so if the story is good the director has not soldout to PC. but you have to be ok with reading subtitles. which FYI is no big deal once ...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

So with Daniel Craig quitting the franchise, it is rumoured that the New 007 is going to be a black woman. I assume that, along with women's football, this trend is supposed to offer girls a balanced role model to further the cause of gender equality. We've seen quite a lot of this; putting a woman...

There is the obvious reason why The Democratic lawmakers, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, have become so influential. They have created a new branch of the federal government: The DoB. The Departmen...

"I'd welcome more on your views of the Consquenntalist Libs and what thy believe." Like all consequentialists: the ends justifies the means. I don't see any stripe of Libertarians with "ends justifies the means" mentality. At some point: Joe is gonna overstep with people and then, if he's lucky, ja...

Re: MUSLIM SENATORS IN THE US...WTF !

WTF is wrong with this forum posting mechanisms? I'm not saying the US has done everything right: I'm saying what they have done is not really an "empire." The metaphor is inapt, I think. I view America as the best alternative. ie Rome could be worse, and of course better, but most likely alternativ...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

I read your reply to me, and smipped - agreed with maybe 1/4 of it overall. wanted to retain the your central theme below as your summation, and of course my views ya/nay per said views. "Morality" is not a thing that can form by gradual, evolving steps,................... why not? because any moral...

Re: Is it aesthetic or is it ethical?

By my initial thinking, yes. We need a better heuristic than what I have implied.
