  1. Re: Sexual Assualt in London up 20%, + acid attacks and moped gangs

    Firstly: the British government is not pro-Islamic. Since the year 2000, the British government has invaded two Muslim countries (Iraq, Afghanistan) and bombed a third (Libya). It has also...
  2. Re: Sexual Assualt in London up 20%, + acid attacks and moped gangs

    Being concerned about real crimes is both fair and honourable. Unfortunately we live in a society where facts are sometimes selectively presented in such a way as to create misleading narratives. In...

    This sentence is a work of genius. I must admit, your posts are a guilty pleasure, Exarch!

    I'm neither agreeing nor disagreeing on the point being made, but I find the use of language has...
  4. Re: Institutional Speech: Where did the Right and the Left go wrong?

    Interesting post, thanks for sharing.

    I think you're right about society's individualism. An individualistic society is one where people are largely free to choose their own path, at least in...

    Re: Is Monotheism Inherently Intolerant?

    Taxation in this period was not a means at conversion - if that were the case, it doesn't fit with other evidence of the period which we know points to discouragement of conversion in the Ummayad...

    I think sumskilz made a valuable point when he mentioned that the early Israelites were not strictly monotheist, but henotheist. It has been argued that Christianity (or at least Catholicism) is not...

    The UK government today is like the Angeloi in the Byzantine empire in the run up to 1204. Ineffectual to the point of destroying the country.

  17. Re: Formula 1 bans "grid girls". Feminism/political correctness gone too far?

    Re: What does "external" mean?

    The OP hints at why two people look at the same reality and come to different conclusions. One person likes pineapple on pizza, the other can't stand it. The actual pizza is the same, either way.

    Good post.

    Both the "secular" modern Western world and the Muslim one are schizophrenic when it comes to women. Both have some good ideas, and some very bad ones. On the whole today women have far...
