  1. Re: Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi awarded Nobel Peace Prize as border conflict flares up

    There's not really much risk involved.

    It seems that the committee, at least inasmuch as the Peace Prize is concerned, have decided to start awarding people more for potential, rather than...

    Why not just recreate the CdeC? You've gone for the more complicated option. Restricting anyone associated with the Tribunal or Moderation from holding both offices would be most sensible in my...

    That's not so bad. There were 12 members of the CdeC, so one stepping back wouldn't be an inconvenience, whereas half of the entire body of Censors being ineligible to sit upon a case could cause...

    Disgusted by the "ATILLA" announcement

    As an educator, I am completely disgusted by the announcement of the new game Total War: ATTILA. I'm sure most of my pupils learn through the computer games they play and therefore it is a moral...

    Re: Total War Attila: Not what we wanted.

    You might want to get some better hopes and dreams.

    Also, if you regard Rome 2 as not being a "proper Total War" game, why would Medieval III or Empire 2 be one? Wouldn't you want them to stay...

  15. Re: The main purpose/benefit/advantage of (representative) democracy

    Poll: Re: Scottish Independence Referendum is agreed: vote in 2014

  20. Re: ISIS: Math, social studies, and lessons on non-authoritarian forms of governance banned

    IS isn't "dumbing down". It's completely removing core subjects of any curriculum.
