    You're pretty good at derailing your own threads. Maybe you should be more tolerant of the opinions of others and work on maintaining a coherent theme.
    Whoops.

    I love all the people who can't seem to stop themselves from talking to or about me, even though I never in any way initiated the conversation.

    Something that I've found, interestingly, is that they're all male.

    (except for TG, and well, she has reasonable grounds as my worthy mortal frenemy)

    Yeah you know, most normal people are responding to this thread talking about the concept, not about me. Not you, Gish. Not you. And it's the second time you've done it in like three days.

    Jesus H. Christ, Gish. Get a life.

    Lol

    What did the snail say on the turtles back?

    Wheeee!
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Just curious - where do you lie on that spectrum?

    I consider myself a political moderate. I think war is a pragmatic and necessary evil, and that people have a right to maintain their own culture in their own nation, and shouldn't be asked to make outlandish exceptions for the New World Order or Globalism, which reduces culture to a pathetic shared interest in the same corporations. On the other hand, I think it's good for people to have peaceful relations with other nations and cultures, and that diplomacy should always be employed as a strategy before war. I think people should be free to immigrate wherever they choose, but be expected to assimilate to a degree. I actually am appalled that anyone thinks it's okay to move to France, for example, and not respect their culture and speak French, etc. I would never do such a thing, and I think it's blatant ...well it's pretty much a form of invasion of another nation's culture to think you can go there and TAKE OVER with your own culture. There's a line between being able to keep your own history, and just thinking you can waltz in and move the furniture around in your host's house.

    I don't include the U.S. in this *as much* because we are built on immigration and multi-culturalism as a nation, but I still apply some of the same pragmatic standards to this country as well involving self-defense, etc.

    I also, think, for example, that private institutions should be allowed to make their own rules, within reason - like religious institutions shouldn't be mandated by the government to do this or that that violates their religion, like for example a Christian school shouldn't be expected to run with the same specifications as a public school in terms of whom they hire and what they tolerate.

    There of course has to be a basic framework for what is unacceptable (murder, rape, child abuse, etc.) but I think private interests should be allowed to maintain their own morality, as long as belonging to that private interest is voluntary.

    I believe in capitalism without corporatism, and personal responsibility without preposterous unreasonable cruelty, and I think any all corporate welfare should end, I think the government really needs to get out of bed with big business.

    Just kidding.

    Oh Internet.
    It isn't ironic. You do have a choice, Marmie. You don't have to engage them back. You bite every time.
    The irony here is you bring up tolerance by oppression, while trying to oppress those that display intolerance of you.
    Please take it back a notch or two, it was a interesting subject you brought up.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    So, basically, while rejecting relativism, you favor the mosaic model over the "melting pot" one?



    Just kidding.

    It was a compliment! Honest!
