Re: Basic Human Rights

Have you ever considered just answering the clarifying questions posed to you(?) Have been: you just don't the answers. LOL If you BELIEVE this, then you are more disillusioned than I first thought. What I BELIEVE is, no matter what I tell you, you won't understand or will misinterpret. What I BELI...

Re: Realists as Animals Cannot Recognize Themselves in a Mirror

And: I see a duck and rabbit just fine.

And: I recognize the reflection in the mirror as my own.

Re: Realists as Animals Cannot Recognize Themselves in a Mirror

I say the followin' without arrogance or condemnation... The world exists, and it exists independent of me. The apple on my table is real, and it and the table both exist whether I, or anyone, pay either any mind. What I bring to the table (and apple) is perspective and language. The thing I call ap...

Re: The Biden Binder

I know that Henry. It's not what or how you said it, but it's what it means whether you know it or not. " ... kill them...salvage what you can, burn the rest ... " is the gangster's, thug's, or warmonger's mindset for dealing with social/political issues. I know you're better than that. I stand by ...

Re: The Biden Binder

That's not what I said. You need to read , and consider context instead of always, huckster-like, lookin' for a way to get a leg up. I know that Henry.

Re: The Biden Binder

That's the thing: in the course of his day-to-day, a free man doesn't dwell on what's evident, he doesn't spend time thinkin' about what is or what is true or real. I don't. *Anyone who doesn't even think about his day-to-day situation enough to avoid all possible threats to his life and freedom is...

Re: The Biden Binder

What to do about slavers and all that they touch? kill them...salvage what you can, burn the rest Oh yeah! That will definitely work and make things better. After you are through killing and scavanging, the free will come back and give you a decent burial. You have yet to learn the first rule of de...

Re: Quote of the day

Too many people fail to understand that Law, Justice, and Civilization do not come from the state. And if the state refuses to support those concepts then they will be handled despite their wishes, without most of the niceties one might desire. J_Von_Random

Re: conservative, progressive, libertarian constitutions

None of those quite fit me. I'd have my own . . . which unfortunately no one else would sign up for, hence why I don't usually bother with politics/political discussions. I'm a very idiosyncratic sort of "libertarian socialist." And then you go and give yourself a ridiculous and nonsensical label.....
