The will to power is all there is. Might makes right.
...which completely explains the shit-state of the world and why it isn't going to get better.

An entirely different will to power than the one Nietzsche had in mind.

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 ?
The other mod is even less productive than you posting less than once a year on average and so may as well not be here at all

Sounds like bliss.

I'm of the opinion that a mod shouldn't often post their opinions as it's an unfair situation.

Sounds like we're doing a good job then.

No idea and have no inclination to ask.

When the bear eats your face: it becomes sumthin' more than harmless.

2 of my threads in "pol phil" in the last 6 weeks were removed.

both related to Israel and the Reichwing gov there under Naziyahoo.

my third thread asking "amod" why the prior 2 were removed" in the same section of this forum will probably dissapear, and Amod prob will not PM about the matter as to why they were removed. I'm not anti-semitic, only hate thugs and nazis - including when they happen to be jewish.

Amod? why my 2+ threads opposing nazism, and affirming palistinian human rights/representation/dignaty..........were removed?

if they were per "orders" from higher ups, fuck this forum. of not, and just a misscommunication - i appeal to you as to why my threads were removed amod.

I remember years ago when students demanded free speech. Now these same students demand indoctrination, censorship, and protection from free speech. a thread on censorship would probably be deleted since it would promote too much negativity and disturb the peace.

The bear will eventually eat your face and be placed on a pedestal simply because political fashion will have dictated that your face deserved eating

I was suggesting that we cannot expect consistency anymore than it is exhibited in the world.

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 I take a very lax view on what is or isn't philosophy and philosophising and give most things the benefit of the doubt.

Gaffo: Did you PM to ask me why? No, you just ran to the board with a load of Yank bluster, conspiracy waffle and acronyms I have no clue about nor care to know about.

Personally I would have this forum for subscribers to the magazine only as they are who pay for this forum whilst those who don't I just consider interweb freeloaders but since Rick in his largesse disagrees I will continue to do this role for free. I think it hilarious that people who post here don't notice how clean it is from ads and what a rare joy that is, and doubly funny when they issue 'threats' to leave as though they are contributing to the upkeep and would be a loss. One thing I never get over is the narcisstic over inflated self belief of some posters that their words and thoughts are of such import that there is a 'conspiracy' to silence them. Get over yourselves or get out in the real world and actually do something about what you often decry.
Phew! I'm off to bed.

But the loons make it interesting. Imagine a forum with only self-important, up-themselves 'professional academics'. The stuff of nightmares.
