  1. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    Well, another approach would be to have the media under the control of the national academies. That way only high-quality stuff gets published and broadcasted.

    However, since many people might...

  3. Re: Three grenade explosions in Yugoslavian gang-related violence rock Malmö, Sweden

    It has happened many times before.

    I wonder how some people on this forum would have reacted to Jonathan Swifts' "A modest proposal" if it were to be published for the first time today.

    Re: Child slavery in Switzerland

    In the times before effective birth control and in poor countries, the children were often seen as a liability or as a source of cheap labor.

    Those children in Switzerland weren't slaves,...

  6. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    The core debate of this thread is the following:

    1) Armed Muslims who engage in violence against non-Muslims result in non-Muslim media reporting negatively on their deeds. Those reports risk to...
  7. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    Some Copts allied with the Muslims, just like during the Crusades some Muslims allied with the Crusaders. Nothing new under the sun, really.

  8. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    The Copts refused to surrender their cities, even though the Muslims invoked a [non-existing] kinship through that mythical lady Hagar.

    The Chinese had fought the Muslims on several occasions...
  9. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    Other than killing them and being killed by them? I guess you're right, they were on excellent terms otherwise.

    By the way the Muslims are increasingly popular in China nowadays.
  10. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    Which claims do I need to back? That both the Egyptians and the Chinese had fought the Muslims on the battlefield?

    I wasn't imprecise, nor was I wrong unless somebody imagines people killed on...

  18. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    You may want to look closer to what actually happened both in the case of Egypt and China.

    More likely you create a liability for yourself because after you cheat you are a valid target for both blackmailing and lawful repression.
  24. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?

    You are Muslim by choice. The Muslim terrorists have made two choices:

    You chose not to be terrorist.
