    I could come up with an argument, but I suppose there is no need for that since the point of dispute was whether 'altruism is worse than slavery or the holocaust'.

    You seem to confuse arguments with opinions.

    I wasn't arguing. I was just stating what I thought.

    I think the idea of property ownership, exploitation, and selfishness were entirely behind slavery. I can't see in any way where altruism would be a root cause.

    Did you see Will in the last episode of Eureka? Awesome! Hope he is a returning character!

    Never even heard of Eureka. Did see him on Big Bang, though, that was pretty hilarious. Is Eureka worth checking out?

    I was just trying to tell you that what you think is likely based on a confusion of possible points of view (arguments) with personal beliefs (opinions).

    I will not claim that the idea that altruism caused slavery is obvious or even plausible; I simply said that it would be possible to cook up an argument which shows how it somehow still is the cause.

    No it's what I think and it's in regards to a number of his posts, not this particular argument.
