Re: Missing Thread

No. You deleted the Alinsky thread but Alinsky isn’t politics. It is an agenda that has the goal of communism. Politics is a tool which furthers an agenda. Communism is a belief system that should be discussed but cannot be since it requires those in favor and those opposed to it who are kicked off...

Re: Missing Thread

Nick_A: I am reasonably consistent, if it's blatent politics it goes. I am, if I say so myself, a most benevolent and tolerant tyrant hence I allow all sorts of loons to post their nonsense here, you for example. Any other philosophy forum would have banned many of you long ago but in my munificence...

Did they get lost or maybe they never really existed ? What say you about these mysterious individuals ?
No idea and have no inclination to ask.

Re: Missing Thread

Which would result in there being a skeleton forum and you with practically nothing to do and so where is the wisdom in this ? ... Sounds like bliss. You dont do very much as it is anyway judging by your post count so it is not as if you need a reduction in your workload is it ? I'm of the opinion ...

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

I've yet to read what it is that you propose to teach people?

If you mean by 'secularist' this https://www.secularism.org.uk/what-is-secularism.html then I own that I have some sympathy, but not much, with the idea.

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

This is simply untrue. Take two of my typical thread for example. The first was called the ONE. It is an explanation of Plotinus basic idea as to the source of existence. The second was called the Cosmic Man which introduces Einstein’s conception of human evolution. Neither has anything to do with ...

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

... The mod knows that my interest is in verifying the ancient ideas which enable a person to acquire a universal rather than being limited to a conditioned perspective Plato described as if in a cave. They are intolerable for the believed supremacy of secularism so the mod’s reaction is as underst...

Re: Indoctrinating hate finale

Actually Nick_A I got rid of your post as it was once again one of your American-centric politically driven diatribes, which I for one am becoming heartily sick of not least because of your refusal to engage with any point that highlights errors in your thinking with respect to Philosophy and those ...

Greylorn Ell, ... Stay on point or go away. The moderators don't care, which is why this is forum is rife with jerks like you. But I care. ...

Expletives

To All, Can you all please stop using the stronger expletives on this forum. If you think someone is an idiot you are free to tell them so but no need for the swearing. This is not a social media forum but supposedly a philosphy forum and as such you should be able to insult in a more mannered and e...

Re: Re:

Re: Re:

The saving grace is that we can understand why certain topics are rejected. Take the "Alinsky Rules for Radicals thread" for example. Why can't it be discussed? It furthers techniques leading to the political philosophy called communism. Why can't it be criticized by those favoring human freedom? W...

Re: Missing Thread

So, it’s not okay to keep trashing the United States and its president on the basis of unsupported opinion that carries not even a whiff of philosophy? By and large the only people who are doing this are Americans and the only people who actually keep posting about America are Americans as you appe...
