    Re: Objectification of women.

    Care to elaborate why you think this is a "myth"?


    That part of the sentence doesn't make sense.


    Controlling the amount of your consumption also has a lot to do with discipline and...

    Re: Justice League (2017)

    I have higher hopes for this than for the WW standalone movie. Less risk of ancient mythology being perverted through zeitgeisty nonsense. Also, the trailer looks OK.

    Re: Objectification of women.

    Well those are two different things really. One is natural beauty (or lack thereof), and one is keeping in good shape (same thing can be said for intelligence, BTW). The latter is down to personal...

    Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

    What do you think would happen to the humanist ideals if Germany were to become Islamic or Islamist?
  5. Re: Execution, Prison, Rehabilitation - How to deal with criminals?

    I think you're forgetting that the primary function of prisons and prison sentences, being part of the legal system, is to protect society from harm. Also, I think punishment is a perfectly...
  6. Re: Terrorist attack on British parliament

    And yet, it's "Western" Europe that has the biggest problem with Islamism in prisons, despite its prisoner-coddling. That proves that something else is needed; most likely a systematic programme to...
  7. Re: Documenting western airstikes that kill civilians

    You should read that book again.


    I didn't invade Iraq, nor did most Western countries. But go on, continue projecting an image of a monolithic bloc of sinister forces. And Saddam who dindo...

    Yeah, let's leave ISIS and al-Qaeda alone instead. Great idea. And then the OP would complain about how we could've let them kill so many local people...

  9. Re: Visiting Rome in May 2017. How is the Public Transportation System.

    Depends on just how thorough you are with the Roman stuff, though. You could spend week or even months studying it. Two days would be the estimate for a "casual" visitor.
  10. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    More disingenuous rhetoric. Nobody would be talking about this essay if it were an isolated incident. As it is however, it's another item of proof for an aggressive, Totalitarian ideology that is...

    Re: Ask Your Questions Here!

    You should make copies of every script that you plan to tweak before you change anything. That way, you'll also have back-ups in case of your changes causing crashes.
  13. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    So it's guilt by association, then. Anyway, I don't think you get to judge which issues are relevant in my corner of the world (or even in your own, by the sound of things).
  14. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    I'm as much "alt right" as you are a member of the Ku Klux Klan, so why don't you stop this mud-slinging now.
  15. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    So you would call the coercion to use a new sociolect, i.e. "gendered language", insignificant (granted, it's worse in German than in English)? Have you not noticed how students are addressed by...
  16. Re: Visiting Rome in May 2017. How is the Public Transportation System.

    Buses and trams should be fine as long as you are mindful of your surroundings (i.e. pickpockets), and tolerant of the occasional delay. There's also local trains if you want to get out of the city...
  17. Re: Western terrorists are much worse than Muslim terrorists

    Indeed. Also, Reza Aslan is slime.
  18. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    Have you ever been to university? That aside, you needn't look further than the Democratic Party in the US, or groups like Black Lives Matter.


    I like the way you formulated this (and so would...
  19. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    Nobody accuses the entire left of being regressive. It's just the racist wing of the "left" movement, which has been dictating most of the left's agenda in the last few decades. An aggressive...

  21. Re: Western terrorists are much worse than Muslim terrorists

    You can't possibly know that. If Saddam had died a natural death, the very same things might have occurred - just a few years later.



    Right, because that's totally a sane comparison to make....
  22. Re: Holland refuses turkish FM to enter country, Erdogan retaliates calling dutch ministers nazis

    So you're saying an account of personal experience is "ignorant and bigoted arguments"? You sound exactly like Erdogan's agents; this is the rhetoric they employ, down to the exact choice of words....
  23. Re: Holland refuses turkish FM to enter country, Erdogan retaliates calling dutch ministers nazis

    Over what? Your argument is entirely hypocritical, as is Setekh's. The EU's standards have been clear for decades. The EU and its individual member states have been extraodinarily lenient and...
  24. Re: Western terrorists are much worse than Muslim terrorists

    Because then you can compare any war in history to terrorism. And then we'll end up with death tolls in the millions, and they will be pretty evenly distributed.
    Aside from the fact that it has been...
  25. Re: Holland refuses turkish FM to enter country, Erdogan retaliates calling dutch ministers nazis

    There are a number of objective criteria you know - participating in and/or endorsing the local culture, adopting local first names, identifying with the culture and the nation, speaking the language...
  26. Re: Western terrorists are much worse than Muslim terrorists

    That still doesn't explain the fundamental craziness of your argument.
  27. Re: "Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump's America"

    Good. The Regressive Left always finds new ways to embarrass itself, hopefully writing itself into irrelevance before they do too much damage.


    Of course it's real. Nothing is too stupid for...

  29. Re: Holland refuses turkish FM to enter country, Erdogan retaliates calling dutch ministers nazis

    As if that ever stopped anyone. They know that Westerners fear being accused of "Islamophobia" and "racism", so they use this as a pressure point in order to gain leverage (same as with the "fascism"...

  40. Re: Holland refuses turkish FM to enter country, Erdogan retaliates calling dutch ministers nazis

    It doesn't work that way. What I'm saying is the local authorities have been negligent in enforcing the law, out of either indifference, or fear of being called "Nazi".
