Re: "would welcome more about your limited compassion - its nature and why so/etc"

It's not complicated: I'm not complicated. I'm a finite resource dedicated to takin' care of me and mine. The other guy can do the same (take care of him and his). And: of course I'm also a mean-spirited misanthrope, so the other guy can go fuck himself. As i thought, thank for reply. I'm same - th...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

This scene is loaded with action … significantly more for those who know Texas Holdum than for those who don’t. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RiuE1rWnso Rounders is a good movie - and I'm particular in what i think is "good" - i have the dvd of said movie. not sure of your clip/point in this thr...

Re: "Universal healthcare which works out cheaper than many privatised insurance systems."

The best song (yes, song, it is rather philosophical), that describes the sentiment is "We Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who. It goes: Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss! amen, excellent song, by one of the best rock bands of all time (esp early stuff) sadly underrated generally today.

Re: "one of the big hypocrisies of their position is that they don't think the same is true of them"

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

Seriously, as a clinical NPD you should never have children and your wife is a fucking idiot (in the unlikely case that you really have one and aren't just making it up). This is the tragedy of this world, we can already tell that your children will be subject to much suffering. And there's no bene...

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

My wife is black. I am white. The babies are going to be caramels. If there's such a thing as "Aryan race" it's going to come through cross-breeding, not engineering. just looking around here in Oklahoma, many folks i see are mixed race (black/white - amer indian/white). I commend your wife for "lo...

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

Among those who define themselves as 'Nazis' today, I have noticed, one finds marginalized people who look for an 'identity' that suits them. But their Nazism is more like a social club than a real movement. It is based in 'tropes' about Nazism and is not really thought through. Hard to assess what...

Because the generations that remember are pretty much dying out. yep, and eduction sucks - all STEM now, so no teaching of history anymore, result is generations of fools.

Re: Why is nazism popular today?

We need new goals, no need need for new goals, the old own - you an a former UKer and me as a "independant of -1776" both affirm the old goal of Enlightment precepts which are what? now 6 centures? 7 - 8? old. not need for "new goals", just defending the 800 yr old old one. BTW Facsism(sp) is older...

Re: Why is pride a sin?

Gaffo, you seem to be saying that Christians mean "boastfulness" when they say "pride". I am not sure if that's right, but it could be. thats my take on the term "pride" and Christian's view of the word. It's not worth investigating. why not? I think the issue is worthy myself. Perhaps the English ...

Re:

I'm 'heartless' cuz my compassion is finite (and most folks don't deserve compassion anyway...they deserve, instead, a swift *kick in the keister).
