Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

You are free to BELIEVE whatever you want to BELIEVE, and, to have a concept of "good" as any way you want it to be. Your abuses of CAPS LOCK and "scare quotes" amount to an indictable CRIME against "keyboards". Fair enough. But NOT ALL people have the EXACT same perception of what the exact same u...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

Some might say that 'stagnation' is a better way of living then 'progress' is. 'Progress' is a relative term, which can mean different things to different people. We're not talking a weekend camping trip, boss. We're talking living your whole life without running potable water, sewers, hospitals, o...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

Technologically they're living an archaic lifestyle in the jungle in a manner similar to their distant Neolithic ancestors of thousands of years ago. If they have something made of plastic or even metal it's because they got it from someone outside of their society. Would you call that "progress"? ...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

I have to say that my impression was that the Brits was were brutal, but less so than the Spaniards, Dutch and Portuguese. Not sure if that's how things are reported in the Anglosphere or if it was the case. that is my general view of the matter. Being 'less brutal' is not necessarily having a "hig...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

If Veg is a Universal Humist - as i am, then i think she would. How do you define 'Universal Humist'? We are All the Same. When you say 'we' you mean human beings , and if human beings are ALL the same, then why do you continually give them individual labels and place them into different groups? re...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

HOW? Because there was NO oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views. nonesence, there were always "oppresive restrictions" upon locals - prior to similar restrictions via colonilism. Because you said that what I said was nonsense, that MUST MEAN...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

Just observe any people who have NOT been influenced from or by people from other lands. That is the ideal way of life. that is a false narrative/assumption on your part. "noble savage" It is NOT a false narrative/assumption on my part at all. What do you think is false and what do you think I am s...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

It has happened, and there's not a heck of a lot I can do about it. You are right, there is not a lot you can do about it. But, do you think that you would you be reacting and behaving the same way as you are now? If Veg is a Universal Humist - as i am, then i think she would. Okay. Now I have no i...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

What does "a grown bias affirming Enlightment concepts of Rule of Law" mean? I'm saying i was brought up as an american - valuing "western ideals" (enlightenment concepts of Enalienable Rights) Even the very simple words 'american' and 'western ideals' can NOT be agreed upon and accepted. I have NO...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

One of my teachers back in high school brought that up in our class back in the day--that the British approach turned out better for their respective areas of influence. Back then you could still hear people talk about Western nations (especially Britain) benefitting less advanced nations through "...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

Of course all Colonialism is bad by default. Just thinking about history, and concluded that all the former Brit colonies: Hong Kong, South Africa, India, Autralia, NZ, Canada, USA, have a higher standard of living and more liberty generally than former nations of other colonial powers. why is that...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

I'm sick of being asked to define PC by the PC (who either refuse to, or are incapable of, recognising themselves). I think it's the latter. I've defined it many, many, times, and several on here now understand what it means. I suppose 'hypocrite who takes the moral high ground' describes the PC, b...

Re: The Wrong God

Children ask "Why?" and at the same time they expect a simple answer. That's not how it works. "Why?" is the hardest question of all. And you are probably going to continue mistaking the complex for the simple by saying idiotic things like "there is nothing hard or complex about the universe". If y...
