Its all fun and games until you discuss politics and learn how intellectually and morally impoverished the people you’ve surrounded yourself with are.
ah yes, the old “if you disagree with me then there’s something wrong with your intelligence and/or moral character” argument
i think the point is more that if you make a logical argument or deconstruct someone’s argument, and they refuse to acknowledge it. or if they advocate violence but use orwellian terms to describe it. or if they just flat out advocate violence as a solution. most people aren’t philosophers, and most people haven’t attempted to explore what their beliefs actually mean when they lay them out.
Not really, it’s just life. You are waiting on a bus, on a train, caught in traffic. You complete the ninth rep of the third set of deadlifts. You practise going from Gm to B#7. You practise strumming with an accent on the second upbeat. You stare at a blank page. You fold K2o in the small blind. You stumble your words as you approach your 378th set of girls. You correct a spelling mistake on the third draft of your screenplay. You are in the space between climaxes. You are in real life.
why WOULDN’T you want your tax dollars to go towards paying for medicine and healthcare for other people
i’m having trouble understanding why you wouldn’t want to help other people be healthy. i like that. i think it’s nice. im absolutely okay with paying some taxes for that
if you’re absolutely okay with that, then you don’t need to be forced to do it. taxation is extracting money from people under the threat of force. if you can recognise that people are going to help others of their own free will, then you can see that taxation is unnecessary.
i don’t trust people. i think we need a bunch of liars to represent us, and a bunch of thugs with guns to do their bidding. that will surely help us become more civilised
you are not your country’s central bank. you are not your country’s government. you are not your fuckin khakis
