With this in mind, my sources have indicated that Andrew Bolt's views are simply a reflection of the general communities involved. A certain segment's views you mean. I don't find Bolt ever offers up any solutions except a. lock up aboriginal kids and throw away the key (that's a quite a popular vi...

I don't mean love of people.
I mean love of anything, including nature and beauty.
The energy of love would be gone.


Does it compensate for the collective misery?
I more than suspect not. 8)

there are some of us who don't quite grok the love thing. it is abstract to some of us.


"Love" is based on simple chemical reactions in the brain.
Nature's little incentive/push to predominantly procreate.

"Where there is life there is suffering." Conversely, where there is no life there is no love. Since "Love makes ppl crazy", are you advocating MORE crazy ppl in the world? 8O I think you are. 8O Personally speaking, I value "Oblivion" after "the mortal coil"...

Do you have any vids/transcripts on this, or is it simply what you thought happened based on the biased ABC disinformation the ABC has apologised for? Actually watch the Project, the mob at the townhall were divided. A lot of the younger people there (university age) were asking the older folk not ...

My kids are the joy of my life. The chance to see the world fresh, to share it with someone who brings new perspectives, to hold and guide and protect a tiny, perfect piece of the world. I’m not good with grown ups, but children are my wheelhouse. Now my own children are grown, but my oldest has a ...

I’ve been attracted to women of every possible race. It’s true. You can’t help sexual attraction. If one precludes one’s self from being attracted to a person of a certain race because of false notions pertaining to that race, that’s racism. If one happens to not be attracted to a certain person of...

Just don’t preclude yourself from EVER being attracted to a person of a certain race. Otherwise , you’re racist. And don’t feel it’s a mortal sin if you happen to feel an attraction to a person of a certain race. Because we are all humans. "Cultural compatibility" is an important factor t...

People can have personal tastes of any kind. I pay a lot of attention to man's nose and eyebrows. They are not strictly a race thing but correlated with it.

When you have children you get the chance to watch someone grow from this helpless little blob to an actual person. You get to watch these little beings grow and develop their own thoughts, preferences, sense of humor... you get to be there through good, bad, all between. You get to watch them beco...

if you offer me a billion odd buck$ to incarnate next time, i'll take that. in that environment of ease and security, even somebody like i am at present could raise children after a fashion and make sure they turn out ok. My grandpappy skunk used to say: "I'd rather be a rich unhappy skunk tha...
