  1. Re: The REAL oppression: The plight of Christians in muslim-dominated countries.

    Unfortunately we live in a time where you have to pick sides and being in the middle lands you to being labelled as soft, traitor or whatever. I used to remember a time when I could critique without...
  2. Re: The REAL oppression: The plight of Christians in muslim-dominated countries.

    Not this again. Why should the oppression against one group negate the oppression being experienced by another? No one wins brownie points for oppression Olympics. The oppression experienced by...

    Re: Why Does This Decade Abide Fascists?

    Others have already mentioned sudden cultural and political changes as one of the reason, but I also think ecomomic uncertainties drove the rise of extreme (depending on one's viewpoint) from either...

    Re: Religion and Logics

    You never answered my question how old the baby was at the time of the event and I have already mentioned the possible reason. As for the Nimrod incident, you could pray to anyone and attribute the...

    I am not going to address the first few paragraphs because I and others have already addressed them. As I have guessed, you're begging the questions over and over that were already addressed to turn...

    Re: Religion and Logics

    There is overwhelming evidence based on rigorous studies to refute the claims of various religions. It is you who is either ignorant or dishonest.



    Based on what evidence exactly? As far as I...

    Dodging much of my points again eh? You didn't even tell how old the baby was.

    There are many medical oddities and conditions that couldn't be explained by science until it did. As...

    Well I am not a doctor but how old was the baby? Most babies are cross-eyed when up until about three months. http://www.pregmed.org/baby-developmental-milestones/when-can-babies-see Did...
  11. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    Fair enough.

    I might be wrong and I am just going to spitball but I think this could be more to do with the level immigration and policies. There might be more first generations coming in more...

    As always, you did not address any of my points and even proves my core point that theists' arguments in relation to proving the existence of god are illogical.

    I am going to be unapologetic and...

    Re: Religion and Logics

    Religion is only logical when you don't consider all other knowledge and information available. Some of the most influential thinkers and philosophers are theologians or at least studied theology...
  14. Re: Liberals reason better than Conservatives on moral dilemmas, studies find

    I am inclined to feel good and agree with study's empirical facts (totally not because I consider myself a liberal at all) but I am getting tired of the caricaturisation of those on the opposite...
  15. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    Humans have innate sense of freedom and democracy though at varying degrees. I can't remember which Mesoamerican civilization it was (the Mayans maybe?) but their government was run on voting...
  16. Re: Does fascism/nazism belong to the left of the political spectrum?

    It would be ideal to get a genuine scholar's answer on whether the Nazis are left or right rather than relying on mental gymnastics, word redefinition and even Nazi and communist apologia from random...
  17. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    There is obviously misconceptions and misunderstanding of what I am trying to say and this discussions is full of semantics, which is understandable and goes to show that the idea of globalism is...
  18. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    You are oversimplifying complex and compounding ideas as well as comparing two ideas that are mutually exclusive, which the other posters have already elaborated. You are also using many logical...
  19. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    Huh, I honestly don't know where you got the idea that communism was said to be inevitable but you keep harping that as a red herring and conflating it with globalization. How is communism inevitable...
  20. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    Well call me stupid so you are saying that the aspect of globalization that the left disapprove of is the manipulation of the global economy in order to enrich the rich even more? Yes I know of the...
  21. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    @dogukan

    People change I suppose. I myself was more or less indifferent to politics but I have become more opinionated as I grew older since joining the forum. So having said that, I wasn't...
  22. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    You have a penchant to use history as the crux of supporting your arguments, which I believe you are misplacing the lessons one could learn from within the frame of the overall complex issue.

    We...
  23. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    This is my idea as well if you have read my responses in another thread by natpostarma about more European integration. I already have my own idea of reconciling nationalism with globalization....
  24. Re: Globalization and the threats it represents

    What I find paradoxical in pushing for ethnonationalism is the fact that advocates ignore the different ethnic groups already existing in their own state and these groups are themselves being...
  25. Re: China Launches Second Aircraft Carrier; Imminent Military Parity With US

    All this talk about China's rise, should everyone actually be worried? If China becomes a superpower, I imagine it'd act like the US. Having said that, there appears to be parallel with America's own...
  26. Re: why don't nationalists realise that real independence requires a union?

    I admit I am not well verse on the Roman history but I am fairly sure that internal corruption and inefficient bureaucracy is more to blame, not multiculturalism since the Romans are proud of their...
  27. Re: why don't nationalists realise that real independence requires a union?

    So that's why Glubb's main arguments sounds familiar.

    Do you realise that Gibbons' arguments are now mostly discredited by academics because of over-simplistic analysis and neglecting the fact...
  28. Re: why don't nationalists realise that real independence requires a union?

    Quick google shows he wrote the piece about the rise and fall of empires in the 70's.

    And the decline of the British empire was good and is not something to be gloomy about. Though I admit that...

    The right-wing does like to exaggerate don't you guys?
  30. Re: why don't nationalists realise that real independence requires a union?

    You are right that I have neglected to take into account the low fertility rate of Japan (and other European countries), although that in itself is the reason for the need for immigration because...
  31. Re: why don't nationalists realise that real independence requires a union?

    Nonetheless, I am in favour of more worldwide cooperation.
  32. Re: why don't nationalists realise that real independence requires a union?

    Reconciling nationalism and globalism has been on my mind quite a lot given the current tensions between the two ideologies. I am not saying I have a solution but my opinion is that, globalism is a...
  33. Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

  34. Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

    Fair enough.



    Countries with Westminster-style appointment of leaders through elites complain how undemocratic the EU is, yet those who complain do not proactively first call out their own...

    Re: The "I just saw" thread

    I just saw The Nice Guys. Brilliant movie and the humour is subtle and clever, which many comedies these days don't have because many rely on humour and awkwardness that feels forced to get laughs...
  37. Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

    Like how appointing who the prime minister will be. The people don't even vote who lead the country.



    My point is, people whine without even trying to fix their own flaws and that the EU system...
  38. Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

    Yeah and strangely no one calls out their country's own political system of being "undemocratic" despite literally the EU electoral system being copy and pasted from parliamentary system, albeit that...
  39. Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

    Perhaps the EU is being used as a scapegoat in economic uncertainties that member countries themselves have created for themselves.

    Before the elections polls have already shown that Le Pen never...
  40. Re: Is Germany suffering from extreme Nazi guilt?

    Could you elaborate on what EU policies contributed to this?




    Well as antaeus said, this is contradictory because they are unanimously passed. Also, I don't see anything wrong with examples...
