  1. Re: French cops ask for Roma Gypsies to be evicted from France.

    How about just calling it for what it is authoritarian bigotry. As already pointed out to you, right wing is a broad spectrum. You call something right wing, is it an inherent trait of right wing...
  2. Re: French cops ask for Roma Gypsies to be evicted from France.

    Yet you still don't get it since you keep having to include "right wing"

    So you think left wing people can't also hold bigoted authoritarian views right?

    Re: The Bible on Slavery

    Once again I'll reiterate that they did not have to outright condemn it they just didn't have to condone it, they didn't have to go for slavery-lite. Great in a progressive document for a political...
  4. Re: French cops ask for Roma Gypsies to be evicted from France.

    Authoritarian. Not right wing. There is a huge difference. There are those that would argue that national socialism was more left wing than right. If you are taking a very narrow view then I'd be...

    Re: The Bible on Slavery

    No I think it is just right. You see when you give mixed messages and then promote it as an objective morality you give people license to interpret things however they want to blindly fit in with...
  6. Re: French cops ask for Roma Gypsies to be evicted from France.

    It is not really the right though, it is the far right and the reactionary groups/press.

    Re: Ukraine and Crimea development thread

    That's not going to happen. I wish.

    But I hope the journalist gets out alive. It comes to something when people target journalists. Especially peaceful protesters :/
  8. Re: All who think marijuana use is safe step forward...not so fast there under 25 year ol

    I'd like to know more about the study for instance were the young adults also smoking whilst they were in their early teens?

    What if you start smoking when you are 21 instead of when you are 18?...

    Re: Russian Homophobia

    You could only possibly think that if you have never ever met gay people. I'm guessing small town in the backwater bible belt USA perhaps or 30 years ago when people were afraid to admit they were...

    While that might be true it might have been unthinkable (funny that Buddhism and jainism managed to not endorse slavery) then that just means that it is a useless source when looking for moral...

    And it has already happened to a large degree with the Euro being traded by many countries instead of dollars. To add to...

    Re: The Bible on Slavery

    Ouch Thanatos nailed this one hard, useful addendum from Lazarus.

    So that's it for me and one whopping great nail in the coffin of Christianity and I've yet to see or can even imagine a proper...
  15. Re: French cops ask for Roma Gypsies to be evicted from France.

    I think the proposed idea of forced relocation is quite reminiscent of nazism.

    But whenever a far right movement crops up it usually arises out of discontent being caused elsewhere. It is like a...
  16. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    Well considering it is more than evident that racism and economic success can happily coexist it suggests your point is utterly redundant and proves nothing (except you will defend anything you ever...
  17. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    You must be in politics to be so god damned unwilling to answer a question. I simply asked why you were bringing up economic success in a bid to prove there is no racism?

    Can you answer this oh...
  18. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    That wasn't what I asked. Why do you keep repeating the economic mantra that economic success is a sign of there not being racism.

    Because in the UK indian immigrants and indian UK citizens are I...
  19. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    Economic success is not an argument that racism doesn't happen so I am baffled that you keep repeating it.
  20. Re: Six UK Schools Implicated In 'Trojan Horse' plot by extremists to 'Islamise' secular state education

  21. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    What I am seeing here is an admission we must reject qualitative analysis which leaves us as you rightly say with a mess of problems. The point is whether you work from first principles (ideally) or...
  22. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    Can you please respond to my previous post? And I reject your call for a quantitative analysis, my qualitative reasoning is based in the praxelogical effects there is no quantitative factors here.

  23. Re: Neil deGrasse Tyson on atheism ("the only 'ist' I am is a scientist")

    It is not free will and nothing you have said goes against what it is, a matter of definition.

    I believe you railed against the definition because it was "lame" but your subjective assessment of...
  24. Re: Shocking Report: The north Korean government is evil

    Well I mean lets look at this way right. I mean seriously guys, se-re-io-us-ly, they aren't neoliberals. So I mean they aren't all bad right?

    Also they executed a corrupt official with a...
  25. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    No nothing to do with you mate.
  26. Re: Sense of identity/purpose and "the other"

    Ah well OK then. I guess the only thing I'd say just to reiterate is to say that I think all of those things you are concerned with are masks for the need for existential security and fear.
  27. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    Oh dear. Yeah there is a big difference between indian immigrants or students (paying a fortune compared to their non immigrant counterparts, in England up to six times the cost) who are well...
  28. Re: Sense of identity/purpose and "the other"

    It has nothing to do with religion, mildly it is cultural identity or strongly depending on how you consider this. Israeli people are born and told almost immediately they are jews, then they learn...
  29. Re: USA's supreme court lifts campaign funding limits

    I'm going to credit you with the intelligence you so very clearly have and assume you are using capitalism as a catch all term and would be happy with me tagging on the "crony" capitalism.

  30. Re: Indian politician: Women who are raped should be hanged with their rapists

    Hate to say it but shocked to hear that the author of the comment also included in the phrase "In Islam" from a country which is dominated by religion anyway.

    Re: The most influential person of history..

    It isn't that there isn't a computer model to measure things, it is that there is NO way to measure things.

    But you are trying anyway, and that is rather silly.

    Re: Ukraine and Crimea development thread

    UK has the odd thing like Sierra Leone under its belt. Military spending, nuclear power and an awful lot of soft power. The moment a couple of them change then boot them happily. For now it is...
  37. Re: Neil deGrasse Tyson on atheism ("the only 'ist' I am is a scientist")

    Yeah try a dictionary definition of religion. It certainly does not have to be so and large tracts of buddhism are not that way.
  38. Re: Thatcher/Britain in the 1970's - Are people dumb, forgetful or deliberately obtuse

    No I did. I agree with some of it.
