Then why flap your gums spouting your "philosophy". You started this and now you take the defeatist attitude when someone holds up a mirror to faulty logic.
I doubt if anybody here has much power to change the world. But we can change our own attitudes, learn how to reason, understand something of what others are thinking, and acquire new general knowledge. And discussions help.

So I believe that Trixie should rise to the challenge and answer Artistic's question with honesty and thoughtfulness.

While you’re at it, pass legislation to abolish suffering.

Also, legislate world peace.

I think that would be nice.

If you disagree with this proposal, you obviously want people to suffer, and you want war.
There is no worse suffering than being forced to make peace with your enemy. And there is beauty to combat.
Just make sure the legislation reads peace for each and all, in every situation, at all times. That should cover it, don’t you think?

Or maybe we should do what republicans have become famous for...doing nothing but complain.

Mostly they complain about the lies and deceit of the Progs.

Now that they have majority control they should legislate truth, make truth the law of the land.

Wouldnt that be refreshing? But they wont..

1. Because they are terrible liars And dont want to be silenced.

And

2. Because they do NOTHING.

1. On the other hand, adroit liars mimic and thus futilize the decency legislation act with slick, presidential affectations.

2. Impossible. Any doing at all is a doing of something.

Civilisation anonymises people.
I think there is a genuine urge to co-operate, share and contribute to the community that has evolved over a million years and more. But when societal numbers increased beyond a certain number that allowed predatory psychopaths to take advantage and slip between the cracks.
Small scale societies are generally egalitarian and tend to have strict rules on sharing and behaviour.
These days you need something else that can offer the fellow feeing that we have all evolved with to thrive.
In the USA the culture of the self (or should I say cult of the self) has pretty much crushed the feeling of community and that is just how the powers like it; a divided people is much easier to control.
You can be quite stunning at times Hobbes.
That's a nice thing to say.
Thanks.
