  1. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    First, the part about activists is explained in the paragraphs following the one you quoted. As in, how do you think one person was compared to another? What was their control? Etc. Social justice...
  2. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    Great article.

    I would agree that the ultimate cause of rape is probably an evolutionary holdout in that rapists tend to propagate their genes throughout history however I do not think this is a...
  3. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    Emotional empathy/affective empathy aren't negative they're just not associated with justice seeking behavior (i.e. being more emotional doesn't predict you will be pro-social justice, being...
  4. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    Sumskillz, pretty sure the activism he inspired had little to do with satire; even if he was knowledgable enough to write such a thing in a satirizing way he fails in several accounts to do so...
  5. Re: Social Justice 101: Power Privilege and Oppression

    Activists and Social Justice advocates are accessing the logic and reasoning portion of their brains when they see injustice, not the emotional portions.

  6. Re: Why Are People Allowed To Have Children When They Can't Support Them?

    You explicitly said, Unlicensed Child Tax. Perhaps you should choose your words better if it wasn't your intention to penalize people who had children unlicensed with a tax.

    As per exarch, exarch...
  7. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    The difference between PC and Fascism is the difference between manners and criminality. Regardless, PC is not social Justice. Fox News is pc but we can still say they're racist and sexist as :wub:....
  8. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    :laughter: So a man hating woman is pretending to be a feminist. Other feminists eschew that sort of behavior and while some of the things she says are true, the vast majority are willful...
  9. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    Sanders gave the podium to them willingly and supports BLM. Hilary shouted them down and had security remove them. BLM wouldn't try this at a republican event because they might be murdered. It's...

  11. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    lol. You made a statement mentioning the motto and I responded accurately. You've now moved the goal posts to a new position. We don't call that a strawman, we call it arguing with someone who...
  12. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    Did you read your source? In god we trust was added in 1956. The motto before that was merely, E pluribus unum. It appeared on our coins in 1860's/1870s as a ploy to declare god on the Union's side...
  13. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    It took 180 years for people to forget what the founding fathers stood for enough to pass that as our national motto.
  14. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    You're so wrong. Like you don't get that the whole idea of several of those events was to disrupt the proceedings of white supremacists right? Are you kidding me?

  15. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    You know the civil rights movement did this pretty much constantly? Women did this for title IX. LGBTQIA+ advocates did it for a variety of rights. I could go on and on. As far as I know the KKK has...
  16. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    Snuggans hit the nail on the head.

    Dr. Legend swings and misses again.
  17. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    Not social justice, this is anti-imperialism and anti-israeli sentiments.



    :laughter:

    I love the stereotypes you use to describe a group which is against stereotypes.
  18. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    I don't agree with most of it but most importantly your conclusion is non-sequitur. Show income equality leads to the American dream, and keep in mind no one is advocating for complete equality. Not...
  19. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Your statement is hyperbole, sanders has said he would try to break up but not how/when/etc.
  20. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    I mean, I could get into the economic debate side of this if you want. Earlier in the thread I produced some pretty good economic research that shows cost of scale benefits end around 200-300 billion...

  22. Re: Social Justice (Warriors) and cultlike behavior

    So rubicon, why is Jap a pejorative?

    Overall I find this to be hilarious. Social Justice is definitely a philosophy and you can portray a philosophy as a religion quite easily. However, Social...
  23. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    Funding by Siemer & Associates an investment bank... Now why would an investment bank want to portray individuals against large government intrusions and regulations as a superior political position?
  24. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Obama was not born outside of the limits of the United States. So still not sure what you're on about. Even assuming that the law has changed it's an irrelevant point because his mother was a...
  25. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Cruz's parents status would indeed matter if someone could prove it, the problem is only he could do so. If any court of the US found evidence that his mother had decided to register as a foreign...
  26. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    I'm not sure what your statement has any relevance to. She was both a resident and a naturalized citizen, not to mention he was born on our soil. Citizenship is guaranteed in the US at birth. It's...
  27. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

  29. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    The history of English Common Law on which all modern western society rests today is traced back to 2nd century anglo-saxons depending on which historians you support. If you believe the law's...
  30. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    :doh:

    The irony of you stating this is vast, he is arguably more liberal in social policies than Sanders is and far more so than any conservative. Remember that study I posted about a lot of...
  31. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    Do it, actually most of these quotes are explicitly in context, they're usually from the founding fathers arguing with religious folk saying the same :wub: as you. I thought you'd try to call them...
  32. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    Do you even understand what non-sequitur or DOES NOT FOLLOW means? Or are you just going to random an argument together and hope people don't notice?

    You're missing a lot of swings recently.

    Secularism is not a christian principle. Separation of Church and state is not a christian principle. Women's rights. Abortion. Equity is not a christian principle. The methodists and baptists split...
  35. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    That's just an explicitly wrong claim, Obama's mother was born in Kansas. Obama was born in Hawaii, 2 years after it became a US state. So in both cases he's a citizen. Cruz on the other hand was...
  36. Re: Political theism among different cultures in the US

    Dr. Legend is explicitly and empirically wrong. Religion has nothing to do with citizenship current trends show a huge loss of religiosity in the youngest generations. In 20 years demographic wise...
