Not exactly cognito, You know how a dead person's eyes dilate reeeeeaaaallly big? [...] But don't let me dissuade you, it could be argued that the whole blissed out hallucinating death is a gift from some benevolent creator figure to help you through an otherwise terrible, ugly, and horrifying even...

Right out of Thomas Hobbes. Without the State the life of man would be nasty, brutish and short. It took me a long time to realize just how right Hobbes was. ruveyn There I disagree, not because people are saints, but rather, I imagine that the norms on this are probably more important than the fac...

Ok, but the issue is that we are unlikely to be able to stop anyone from getting these weapons. People get them without our desires all of the time, and we usually cannot make them give it up. Heck, we basically just accepted the fact that India had the nuke. What more could we do about a terrorist...

I do not talk so much about the real big powers, like the EU or China, they share some basic interest with the US regarding a relative peaceful world. But I am taking about smaller powers, especially in those regions where the Westphalian System of states is already weak. A small glimpse you see cu...

marriage was made AND defined by religion, the unity between man and woman. That's utterly wrong: The current laws (also within the Common Law system) of marriage are based on the Roman Law. The Roman Law saw marriage not as primary religious issue, but as a contract between two families. You hardl...

You will have enemies - you will have interest outside your borders, just to keep trade lines open. What enemies will the US suddenly have then that will begin military aggressions against US trade lines if the US withdraws? Most powerful nations are our trade partners, and trade partners usually a...

If my jewellery doesn't live on my body (i.e. rings, one necklace, bracelets, anklebracelet, etc.) is solid gold or silver then I can't wear it. You hardly will find "pure" silver or gold: Silver is mostly sterling alloy (925/1000) and gold too often 8 crt. (333/1000). Both metals are quite soft, s...

When it comes to "class", I neither have any problem with the working classes, neither with the Upper Class and a kind of academic professionals, but the most of the people between are horrible. I lived in working class areas and do live currently, far beyond my financial situation (I do not pay ren...

To maintain such a power you need allies. One on the teachings since the development of the modern state in 16th century is that most powerful state had always the most enemies. This first was true for Spain, than for France, than for Germany. Otherwise your trade routes will cut. But maintaining a...

But he does provide the wrong answers: A state of the power of the USA can't afford a basically isolationistic policy, which may be maintained by the "spirit" of the constitution. I do not see why the US's power demands that it cannot generally be isolationist. To maintain such a power you need all...

Public schools are a populist institution. They take a one-size-fits-most approach. But this not necessary invested into a state school system: I went to state schools which were highly selective and specialised in their subjects. They were state schools, but it was needed to pass a test to enter t...

Public school isn't the problem - without it a good number of people couldn't afford education at all - and as mentioned this was for homeschooling. The problem is ignorant people voting other ignorant people on to school boards - and lack of standards for homeschooling - some private schools have ...
