      Basically, Postmodernism is that the struggle between values (what is good and what is bad) is a good in itself.

      The temporary return did reinforce my reason for leaving the OT though :)

      Don't think I'll be hanging around.

      It's your brain coping with the OT abstinence.

      I hope so. Otherwise it could be a psychosis I'm going through.

      Hey, Mr. formerly Sill… what's the new thread about? I'm just to the forums after quite the absence.

      Maybe the whole system is plotting against you? ;) If you have a reply then just copy/paste and resend? Unless in your view it will disturb the balance of not just one person, but of the universe, in which case you should rethink it :lol:

      What I strongly object to is that suggestion that people hence are in general rather [me: ???].
      Because if they are not, and if they, for whatever reasons, will value decency and common concerns for whatever question they are called to the polls - then this means that your depiction of their shortcomings seems - frankly - overall hysterical.

      I cannot tell you the amount of hysterical curiousity I am experiencing right now to see that blank filled in to discover what depictions I've been hysterical about :) I'll let you fill in that blank before I respond. Although I have to disappoint you if you expect much disagreement. All in all, I think both of us appreciate the sentiment behind a self-governing or governmentless society, your angle seems to be a bit more ideological, mine a bit more practical perhaps.

      You said that Israel was keeping Ethiopian birth rates low intentionally. You also said that this was a consequence of the Holocaust (analogizing it to people who get raped and later rape themselves). I did the math.

      That Jews are inclined to commit genocide because seventy years ago a genocide was committed against European Jews? And this isn't something outlandish, correct?

      "So if I say that America exhibits particular strong nationalistic militarism and hence by extension a particular likeliness to murder people - that is a blood libel?"

      No. Saying "Americans are violent xenophobes who reproduce by rape and hang Arabs in the streets" would be. But simply suggesting that a particular cultural mindset might lead to a more aggressive foreign policy isn't painting the American people as murderers. Anyway, blood libel tends to be directed toward segments of society, not societies as a whole. Israel is an exception.

      "Or if I say the opposite is true for Germany?"

      Um... so if you say that Germans are pacifistic and multicultural? Why would that be blood libel?

    "What is the point of life? Freedom. What is freedom? To just be. To not be your thoughts. To not be your emotions. To not be your body. But to be, what you always were, and always will be. Eternal, boundless, pure. Beauty. God." - The Universe
    "Remember, that we all are brothers All people, beasts, trees and stone and wind We all descend from the one great being That was always there Before people lived and named it Before the first seed sprouted" - The Eternal Recurrence
    "So what is left if you are utterly free. What, then, to do, to want, to seek? Nothing but love. So what is the point of life? Love, naturally. So... what is love? Is it a chemical addiction to another human being? No, love is not a drug cocktail. Love is an eternal universal principle of life. Love is oneness in separation and unification, love is harmonious, melodic bridging of gaps, love is unity in diversity. Love is everything." - Me
