Spare no instrument in achieving victory, and spare no enemy, either.
    Hey, I think that this is similar to my brother's opinion on the matter. He's 12 and plays too much empire total war.

    Except I'm not a fanatic. I'm rational about it. Cold beyond human feelings rational, sure. I don't bring my feelings into decisions based on thought. Heart and Soul stay with at home.

    Never planned to. Although Schwarzenegger wants to repeal that so he could run for office.

    I'd think it'd be too much to try and translate everything I want to say into politicospeak.

    No it's ok, you can keep the politicospeak out of it, but I have to say, your comments probably sound much better in their original German.

    that's how you perceive it

    everyone finds thier beleifs rational- and to the rest of us they're completely rediculous, and possibly quite horrible.

    it's people like you who give america a bad name.

    Most of the world sees America as the big bully. And if the Republicans are voted into power this time round... the world pretty much loses all faith in America.

    Human rights are important. That's not some soppy emotional thing to say, it's as rational as it gets.

    It's ironic isn't it?

    America is the bully and the Islamofascists are the victim.

    This resonates with MBTI where the Jew, Freud is the bad guy and fascist Jung, the father of MBTI, is the good guy.

    Everything is connected in this intricate biosphere we call our world.

    There is no such thing as an isolated incident.

    Every action is met with an inversely proportional reaction. While one of us consumes as much as four human beings easily could, four foreigners are left to sparingly consume what should be enough for only one.

    Efficiency at what cost?

    Growth by whose standards?

    There were economic benefits to slavery, after all, "free" labor is the cheapest labor, but, hmm, can one economically defend and support the validity and justification of slavery?
