The only Person I know who voted for Brexit did so because the EU is not a democratic institution in which politicians are accountable to their voters. - it's by so by its core design. My argument was that Britain and the city of London in particular was the most rotten part of it all. I'm older th...

It's hard for me to empathize with your worries, I don't have a spiritual bone in my body. But I'm not disinterested in religious belief and what its purpose is in society and for the individual. I noticed the "coincidences" you describe, and they reminded me of similar "coincidences&...

The current state of philosophy is too woke for me. Make philosophy great again. Wokeness establishef its own hierarchy, and people running universities are profiting of that: you can lower wages, because wokeness is not a skill with which you can easily earn money outside of academia, and woke peo...

.I plan on creating a lot of jobs in my life using Reaganomics. Reagan was so far left by today's standards - even Bernie can only dream of a top marginal income tax of 50% now. We are living in the wet dream of neoliberalism and the only reason why Reaganomics is a rightwing ideal is because of th...

Imho, in past centuries, the way to criticize the dominant religion has been to establish epistemology and such - but eventually, science did away with mystical religions and our dominant religion today is not mystic, but rational. Depends where you live. The above is certainly not true in the Bibl...

Well actually someone who makes 30,000 a year does not have to pay long-term capital gains and dividend taxes.The taxes on capital gains and dividends are bracketed also with the super rich paying up to about 23 percent in capital gains and dividend taxes. In other words: if you work yourself, you ...

questions like taxing financial transactions, instead working people's wages. What do you mean by "taxing financial transactions"? Sales tax? Surely you don't favor replacing income tax with sales tax? That would be pretty regressive. So perhaps you mean something else? A sales tax on fin...

The people who worked hard on it have been, at least I hope, paid. I only know the creator of one of the shows that is now disappearing, and I know that she got paid. But of course, she got robbed of the chance of her show turning into the next adventure time.... And you can still watch the stuff, j...

It's fine, come over to our side, you're welcome. Would you like something to read? Maybe about how none of the things you listed make you a leftist, from the perspective of a leftist, because none of them are concerned with how bosses sell the work of their workers, and just keep some of the money,...

The amazing thing about the patriarchy and traditional gender roles is that although men do suffer under them, they are willing to defend the patriarchy and are using their suffering as an argument to shut up people who are advocating for changing the order. I still don't understand how male suicide...

I like Bruno Latour and Peter Sloterdijk and Timothy Morton. The professor of philosophy Ralph Moeller, who runs the youtube channel carefree wandering, said that the primary purpose of philosophy is to criticize religion. Imho, in past centuries, the way to criticize the dominant religion has been ...

/\Mostly,except when we train them. I have five dogs, six geese , three hens an iguana and a ball python.Had cows, goats, turkeys, ducks, mammoth burro, horse, cats and assorted other animals. Their behavior was pretty predictable. You can’t predict what a human will do. I think I'm trying to make ...

Only humans kill out of hate and malice.Other creatures do it to survive, protect their young, for food.We do it for no good reason. What do you mean, no good reason? You said hate and malice!
