Re: A good analysis of the rioting

Yes the rioting is awful and should be stopped. The problem is Trump however...and I'm not sure why you can't see that. His complete lack of leadership ability is making this situation 10 times worse. I should add that Democrats should absolutely be calling for an end to the looting and rioting as ...

Re: A good analysis of the rioting

I find it funny when people say that he's a poor communicator. The guy got himself elected despite being opposed by the entire media and political establishment. He must know how to communicate at least a little bit. Obviously you don't like his style of communication, but some people do, in fact 46...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

I also don't think you can fully appreciate what it's like to grow up in a country that enslaved your people for 400 years, and then discrimated against your people through the law for another 100 years. A country whose monuments and history books are full of positive stories about people that prob...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

99% of the guys who fought and died for the Confederacy never owned or even talked to a slave in their entire life. So why do you think they fought to preserve slavery? They didn't. What they fought for was their country. Just like the guys we honor who died in lots of other wars. And now you're tel...

Re: A good analysis of the rioting

I don't see one actual specific concrete action that Trump has made in your entire post, just his words. The guy likes to talk. He likes the sound of his own voice. Just like all other politicians. That doesn't make him Hitler. You do too much mind reading.

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

Here's another thought experiment, two sides of the coin. A black guy walks into a gym full of white people. That's one side of the coin. The other side is a white guy walks into a gym full of black people. Which one of these two people likely subjectively feels more fear in his mind, the black guy ...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

Now, you're getting it. Pull down all the statues. I think Aristotle was the tutor of Alexander the Great, and Alexander had slaves. Therefore, any statue of Aristotle needs to come down. And any books that have Aristotle's ideas in them need to be burned.

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

It's an interesting thought experiment: what would happen if the Conservative Club at the University of Washington started a riot and pulled down the statues of Marx and Lenin? I imagine they would get arrested, charged with vandalism, and made to pay restitution and penalties. However, when Black L...

Re: Where would you move?

I don't really know much about them, but they might be good alternatives to Boulder, which I fear is hugely liberal at this point, not based on personal experience but just what I've read. Anyone with half a mind to think for themselves probably wouldn't be welcome in Boulder. I was in Fort Collins ...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

Marx and Lenin were pacifistic figures whose ideas and actions never hurt a flea. Why should anyone care what happens to their statues?

Re: A good analysis of the rioting

I personally admire the intellectual honesty of Sam Harris in so far as he seems to be a very ardent advocate for the truth. In this regard I have never seen him address an issue from the standpoint of having a personal agenda other than to have conversation based on facts, and when it strays from ...

Re: Where would you move?

Are Loveland, Colorado or Fort Collins, Colorado any good?
