majority of Americans dislike the radical ideas being peddled by Marxist progressives (white privilege, critical race theory and radical wealth redistribution among them) but are afraid to speak up. I think one of the reasons for the general madness in the world right now is the lumping together of...

techstep's analogy to *anything* being the predictable beginning to an argument, because we like to argue is of course not wrong, but the question is ehy facebook is so good at stirring up disagreement, though so bad a settling it. my guess is that the format is poorly designed for actual argument -...

Albert Camus’ ‘The Stranger’ (or more aptly ‘The Outsider’) is arguably the single most important and popular work of existential literature. The main character Meursault exhibits many traits of ASD and multiple essays and analyses have pointed this out. I was recently diagnosed with ASD as an adul...

because in a disciplinary socjety, undisciplined behaviour is policed by society. we are however moving away from a disciplinary society, in which you need to be punctual for your shift at the assembly line, towards a more disordered society, where there is no fixed shift you could be late for. You'...

You think the United States will exist in twenty years? Thats pretty optimistic. It won't exist if people keep pushing for more communism. Biden is already pushing his status as dictator. hahahaha. I'm European, living in a country that was half communist until 1990. The US right now needs a handfu...

:cry: For one thing, all creatures inhabit the same environment, pretty much, yet each are vastly different. You have ants and humans living on the same land. If we evolved from bacteria, then those fish type creatures etc. what made us evolve this much, and yet a lot of bacteria, animals and creatu...

If they can mashup songs why not mashup movies? I would like to see a mashup of 1) "the DaVinci Code",staring Tom Hanks with (2) "The Sons of the Desert" starring Laurel and Hardy. The former is a drama thriller that portrays the Free Masons as an all powerful cabal that has inf...

the first half will intermittently run backward and be deliberately confusing, and you will get really bored waiting for the second half in which, you know, you will be given an explanation, so you stop caring, but by the time you get the explanation you realize you completely stopped paying attenti...

@shlaifu The Sapolsky book ‘Behave’ look like one I will have to check out! My reading list is growing. Thanks for the recommendation. With all due respect, I’m not sure I get your point about existentialism being ‘American’… And yes, existentialism focuses on rejecting dogma for sure.. which precl...

personally, I always thought the whole self authorship etc. in existentialism is very.... "American". I mean, you're born into a society, your biology, your genes adapt to your environment as you grow up and at some point, this product of biology and circumstance, decides "I will make...
