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

I imagine it would be a very similar feeling to when your country is flooded with immigrants who don't assimilate and have completely different politics, culture and values, rendering the home you once knew, as unrecognisable. I doubt very much that you would have very similar feeling as I would ha...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

However, if any computer or any person is seen as an 'authority', then what you are proposing here on this page will just collapse. What was actually written in the book is this: With the aid of social media this computer’s noncontroversial output will be widely publicized by all sorts of media. If...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

Telling people to strive to minimize chaos misery destitution and avoid suffering is to tell people to strive / try their hardest to reject their emotions . That just is NOT going to ever work . Living in a perfectly peaceful harmonious world with EVERY one as One still involves living with ALL emo...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

After you human beings evolve past that recognition and old thinking and move onto recognizing that the human species is just a part of the whole one family of Everything then progress really can start to take shape I agree with this in principle even though I do not think it can ever be achieved w...

Re: How construct a sound Ethical Theory?

If you are going to tell people "we would ' strive ' ", then that is NOT some thing most people WANT to do. People have to WANT to do some thing before they will do it. Telling people to strive to minimize chaos, misery, destitution and avoid suffering is to tell people to strive/try their hardest ...

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? I imagine it would be a very similar feeling to when your country is flooded with imm...

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

no, serously, what is your argument Age. i was clear centuries ago - no like colonialism. you saying "colonialism is bad" ya, agree, and? I do not recall saying "colonialism is bad". In fact it is an inevitable part of nature. It was bound to happen, and there is a very good reason for it also. i o...

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

i was obviously very wrong in thinking that this was already KNOWN and really did NOT need spelling out so much. (More examples of WHY it is better to NEVER assume any thing at all). I'm really a dumbshit. welcome clear small words. you saying English rule over colonies offered a reversal of libert...

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

Therefore, why do you then think that former british colonies have a "higher standard of living"? not sure why, just observation. IMO. If you are still unaware WHY, then another suggestion I put forward is; Could it be because you were brought up in and by a former british colony country and so you...

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

All I was doing was giving a perspective from if it was the land that you lived on, which then became something different, by "others", which was now foreign to you, then would you be reacting and behaving the same way? It has happened, and there's not a heck of a lot I can do about it. You are rig...

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

It's a loaded word: 'colonialism'. The PC just adore it. What does it even mean? It appears that even you want to be politically correct and look at a word and use it politically correctly. The US wasn't 'colonised'. It was created when lots of people went to live there and it eventually became wha...

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

I am not sure of the dates of when these countries were colonized/invaded but could the so called "higher standard of living" have something to do with being invaded later on historically? no, Okay, so you have concluded that all the former Brit colonies have a higher standard of living and more li...
