I don’t think it is true that most Democrats don’t care about poverty. For example, here is Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential platform: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/ The issues are sorted alphabetically, but the only issue that has “A” attached to the front is “A fair tax system”, which ...

I believe in 1 because peadophillia is clearly harmful to all including the wretched minds who have it. Another scary theory about pretty much any divergence is that if it persists it serves some evolutionary / adaptive purpose. That raises all kinds of questions that I'm not sure I'd want to know ...

Todays Conservative political parties in The West originated in the 19th century when parliamentarism was introduced. They represented the Nobility, which was notorious for its abuse and torture of the peasants and workers. To vote Conservative therefore = being in favor of torturing the employees....

I feel most people would be (if they care to admit it) are fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I don't believe "one size fits all". To say that because one believes in the free market economy does not mean you support Trump, neo-nazis and racists. Alas, at least in the UK, of the ...

The BBC forcibly takes money from the British people to fund content that has little influence from the British people outside of London. So basically, outside of London, a lot of people are scratching their heads at the content shown on the BBC. Again this plainly isn't true. Nobody is forced to p...

The BBC should have complete control of their own complaints process, it is not okay to have a BBC media channel on a website such as Youtube, which reaches tens of millions whilst simultaenously, not being able to complaint about that content. In this instance, you're not complaining about the con...

I was making the argument that I made, from a historical context, relative to the rest of the world. The British are very peaceful considering we have a lot of freedom not to be, was the point of the post. Other countries are typically more violent, unless there is strict authoritarianism imposed u...

You must be quite young to hold those views? My age is neither a great secret, nor relevant. Ah. It is on your thing below your pic. :D I was wondering because your viewpoint would be entirely different if you knew what things were like before. Possibly, but it would also be entirely different from...

The UK has had 5 prime ministers in just 14 years each more useless than the last. That’s not historically unusual. For example, between 1756 and 1770 we had eight different Prime Ministers, one of whom served two terms. Generally terms have lengthened since WWII, but there were five premierships d...

This was quite a bizarre post that just seemed to get less and less factual as it went on. The idea that British people only resort to violence in self-defence is plainly untrue. Every year thousands of British people are beaten, raped, or murdered. Our police don’t carry guns because we have very l...

It's plainly untrue that both candidates are likely to be centrist capitalists. They will probably both be *capitalists*, but the Democrat will probably be a liberal social democrat and the Republican will probably, at best, be socially conservative, and could quite possibly be a Trumpian nut. Also...

Do you agree with the OP's claim that voting in America is a meaningless activity? If not, then fair enough, but if yes, then why should it bother you if people try to overturn the result of an election? Why should an election result be sacred if the whole electoral system is a sham? Voting both is...

This is one reason why I don't think DAs should be elected. I'm generally in favour of alternatives to prison, but until good alternatives exist, punishing assault with prison time seems to generally make sense. And for those who think this is a good thing and shows why DAs should be elected, I put ...

But the coverage of Christians & Christianity as a faith and the theology associated with it, by the BBC, is pretty much non-existent. Nonsense. The BBC broadcasts carols at Christmas, Songs of Praise and Thought for the Day are routine, and Christian perspectives are given priority on things l...
