Re: People dont understand me by my speech

You are not alone. It is a common affliction of today's youth. Practice enunciating clearly. Or listen to Richard Burton or Michael Caine.. they both enunciate clearly and Michael Caine has a subtle lilt to his voice which makes it very listenable. try finding old Caine works - he was a horrid cock...

Re: A question of philosophy?

If I experienced exactly what you experienced throughout your life then I might feel or believe the same way that you do That is about as close to the truth as you can get because there is no way this could be tested so its just pure speculation yes of course. it boils down to "Faith" - if one beli...

Re: People dont understand me by my speech

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

Many of the defined rights of the present constitution are in fact, privileges.. A right is essential to life or to happiness and so they should be couched and defined in the most general terms.. Correct - those Rights are refered to as Nature Law Rights, and pre-1776 Brit Common Law Rights - such ...

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

Too many are electing too few to offices which will corrupt them, and fill their bank accounts.. In the process, in this deeply divided society, fully half the people do not have representation they voted for... Is this democracy???.. We are seeing a society divided, and destroyed by halves.. There...

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

Democracy = Majority is always right. I am sorry, but this basic premise is dead wrong. It is not true. If you build an argument on it, your argument will be invalid. Now, you could start with "Democracy=Majority always wins." That would be true. The majority believes they are right. The majority o...

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

The best thing about democracy is that it is not one of the alternatives. All possible alternatives so far have been tried, rejected and tried again, and the non democratic systems still routinely produce the kinds of power abuses that prompt people to agitate for democracy. Still, it's not looking...

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

Democracy sees to it they don't have to suffer their stupid choices forever. Without sarcasm, this is actually a great point.

Re: Democracy is a logical fallacy

Democracy is a system of government not a logical fallacy and therefore comparing it to one is actually fallacious And it is not that the majority decision is always right but the one that is implemented for reasons of practicality I think the OP was not saying "democracy IS a logical fallacy."
