    And gainful employment, as we know, allows us to achieve so much more than enslavement does. The point is that by allocating enough energy at a given task, humans achieve great feats than many other organisms cannot.

    As for the watermelon, I will say this

    Do you think a watermelon would grow on a tree?

    My initial answer is no

    Now, rephrase this same question and apply what we know about the human manipulation of the world they inhabit

    Do you think a human(s) could induce a scenario in which a watermelon grows on a tree?

    My initial answer is probably

    Well, I do admit that came out wrong. English is not my first language. Wrote that pretty fast. ^^
    The word i'm looking for is probably something like "under-developed".
    LOL! Replacing a mistake I pointed out referring to me with under-developed. Wonderfully Ironic!

    Well, do you perhaps speak Swedish? In order to communicate online, one has to speak/write in English, and that is why I am okay at it.
    But I do not think in this language, and that is why things can come out a bit odd etymology-wise, at times, even if it is far from always.

    You won't cut my arm off with a lightsaber, will you? That'd be overreacting for realz.

    There's be no point of course, because watermelons are watermelons and bananas are bananas. But each would have a more natural way of growing. Humans would screw things over.
    Human energy to invent is natural for a human. The fact that we've gone so far is because of our natural creative mind tilts. If no human was ever enslaved, would we have grown on everyone's very own creative skills to produce strange over strange things that might allow us to advance. Think of all those creative slaves that never got to do what they wanted.

    It's icky and unpleasant when they throw out their disease-infested chests.

    Common now. By the way you think I could say Im far superior to you because I speak the world's most popular international language and you're not as good at it as I am.

    Okay, I've been reading backwards some.

    011, I find your opinions to be unfounded bigotry without any basis in reality or experience or science. Your comments are antiquated hate speech of an earlier era which persists in this time.

    It's equivalent to racism and sexism and other attitudes.

    There is no empire that ever fell or waned due to sex. I think the lead pipes and consumption of "sugar of lead" and other such things had much greater effects in the decline of Rome.

    Again, since when is it right to make illegal everything that feels bad? What is it with people thinking that we actually embrace all the stuff that is legal?

    So you mean that the happiness of the great majority is not affected by our societal decadence right now?
    Why the hell do you think that our birth rates are the way they are now and that the west is losing the grip of the world?
    It is because our society has become WEAK and allows for all sorts of bad shit. Not homosexuality alone, but it is part of that cocktail.
    And what is this......? More information please

    The general consensus seems to be that everything that used to be even illgal and definitely shameful should now be okay, just because.
    The general public thinks that everything should be okay? Really?? And you think this is all because of a "just because"?

    This is your first mistake, that you actually think that non-ignorance can be reached purely by reading. And the reading does little good anyway if you automatically reject (or not read at all) any information that makes you uncomfortable.

    If you really think that you need to go back to an ancient society, and you don't seem to really care about those who disagree with you anyway, go make your ancient society. I'm sure you can find many people who agree with you and have money and you can buy an island and build castles and everything, and you can even be king and be the boss of all morality! Let us mentally ill people and immoral majority have our freedom and equality, kthanks.

    You know, i'm almost starting to enjoy this.
    It really is futile to talk some people into line, and the hopelessness of it all appeals to my sometimes dark sense of humor.
    Why do some of you even attempt to think in the first place? You are clearly not doing a very good job of it.
    Some of the various interpretations and conclusions drawn are just plain flawed.

    Yeah, so I am to go off to some kind of island and build castles.
    No, I feel more inclined to stay and make sure that things are righted and that society moves towards a more constructive existence without all of this nonsense.

    When words end, physical force begins. The strength of us fascists have always been that we aren't weaklings like most of the rest.
    Liberal propaganda will of course say that anyone who "resorts to violence" is some kind of unintelligent brute, but that is definitely not the case.
    Warriors are supposed to be on top, and democracy is a bloody joke that will soon be over.
    It always ends, because it just isn't working. Force is the case and point to any discussion, and the strong ultimately cannot be ruled by word wringers, dirty liberals and other cowardly weaklings.

    The prognosis is that we'll arrive there within a couple of decades now. I hope some of you will have front-row seats for the premiere of the Fourth Reich.
    Safe travels!

    May I suggest you spend some of your hard earned non gay dollars on:



    P.S. I find it amusing when any non NTJ speaks of world domination.
