Re: Bill Maher on Megexit

Perhaps Bill has seen 'no country for old men' and decided to alter the goalposts. So chance favors the prepared mind, but 'If the rule brought you to this, then what use is the rule?' While I'm on the subject of McCarthy narratives 'the reddening of the west' really means inconvenient exposure when...

Re: My explanation of emptiness

Who are all these degenerates people keep talking about and why would they be interested in anything righteous or wholesome? :thinking:

Re: Bill Maher on Megexit

Pardon my lzy investment and writing sir, but.. In some respects having a division of labour is important. We're not all singing all dancing, so we have repective professionals in whom we place our faith and trust. Of course in the states there's no central professional body and freedom of speech an...

Re: Responding to insults

Actually I think the verbal exchanges were a good sign: a chance for conflict resolution. WW ? What I got from Ricks post was: Know thy place; do the math! Well the Dinosaurs were isolated for millions of times more than we were around and they didn't even get a warning. So long as no-one end up in ...

Re: Responding to insults

Obviously some people have a small circle of compassion. We know about fair weather friends, well that pretty much goes for much of public life. The politeness is almost an apology for ones one biological leaning. We're anthropocentric, egocentric and ethnocentric, so it's very difficult to work wit...

Re: Responding to insults

I'm going to assume you're either young, or living in a controlled sandbox environment and/or surrounded by 'yes men' based upon the fact you mentioned it's hypothetical to you. So my answer to you is that you'll gain life experience and judge on a case to case basis. One question to ask is what are...

Re: Time For A Republic.

(re: simons point) Yes, there is that, but in a way don't they need you more than you them? They have to look good, but at heart they're decadent, plus you owe them so you can't leave! We could also factor in Nepotism here as a means of gaining security at the cost of competence. People aren't able ...

Re: Time For A Republic.

The infantilism I was referring to is not simply about opinions and their manipulation by media figures, but the inbuilt need many of my country people have for authority figures to whom they can kowtow. It’s an abdication of the adult state. I'm getting an 'emperor wears no clothes' vibe with this...

Re: Quitting smoking

If there was no memory you would have a craving but not know why and what to do about it. The ciggy is a memorial, and it has an extra power where every activity is break time. Don't become attached to any activity but me, your friend, ciggy. At some point you have to put it to bed. You've had 'such...

Re: Why Greta Thunberg Should Be Time’s Person of the Year

Some people don't want to know, Kim. Getting your attention keeps you is stasis, then the capacity is there to undermine your moral(e) resolve.

Don't let the bastards grind you down.

Re: Thank you to the mods

Some people say there's no such thing as smoke without fire. Well, maybe someone tried resuscitating an old thread. It didn't work in the 18th century but now it's back in vogue... and sometimes there's reason for it (Meant in a functional sense).

same :thanks:

Re: Why Don't We Want To Suffer?

, why don't we wish to suffer? If our wishes pertain to desires and attachment then that leaves little room for the consideration of how disaster can occur. Having a false sense of security prevents stress, like being in a zoo. Both good and bad for longevity, but mostly good. :spy: :spy: :spy:
