    Indeed. Nor to me, or anyone I know.

    I'm starting to see why certain posts get zero responses by the forum's older members.

    seeing that I've only lived under one type of government, it would be hard for me to really judge...


    of course, whenever I read the news about some politician doing something especially stupid (meaning, whenever I read the news) I tend to get frustrated and announce that I wish that they'd just draw names out of a hat and make those people serve for a year... it's not like they could be any DUMBER

    Do No Harm. That is the only law or moral that need be upheld.

    I agree, but a consensus on: 1) what harm entails; and 2)how should the do no harm law be enforced; is nearly impossible when you insert cultural differences into the equation. And the problem with Atheism is: it is not an ethos, so it doesn't provide an ethical guideline of any form. It leads people to moral relativism or, perhaps worse, nihilism. This void is eventually filled with whatever seems most enlightening at the moment, often in a radical fashion.

    Usually much better than areligious societies - those are doomed to fall either to Marxism or Feminism+Islamism.
    Yeah because those things are such a force/so popular these days.

    Anyways, no matter how much one denies it, the truth is:

    1- Depite having different motives, feminists and islamists tend to be allied against anything that smells like right-wing (Christianity, freedom of speech, lower taxes, private property, personal culpability).

    2- As a group, they are both addicted to welfare, they both love it when government gives them "free" stuff, they both advocate for politically correct speech, they both love the fact that they can silence people who oppose to their demands and opinions by labelling them whatever-phobics.
