Re: The social justice wars

Since matters of the world is dependent on self promotion and self promotion is dependent on attachment (feeling) I'm speaking of "worldly matters" in the sense of matters of the material world. For example, philosophical matters are of the mind, and worldly matters are of the physical world. The q...

Pam Seeback wrote:those who passionately reason matters of the world (SJW's for example)
I don't see evidence that the SJWs are using reasoning. Their conclusions are based on feelings and henids. They can't present a rational argument, which is why they are so dependent on name-calling or physical force.

Re: The social justice wars

How is keeping the goal of attachment purification/cutting front-and-centre not THE only important task of the philosopher? Matters of the world are test of wisdom. If a person is irrational and uses logical fallacies with regard to matters of the world, then it means their wisdom is almost non-exi...

Re: The social justice wars

P.S. I'm also subscribed to the NYT and have been trying to find articles critical of antifa and the alt-left. I haven't found any yet. I've only found articles which excuse the violence of the left. It only took me a couple of minutes to find a few articles which explores the violence of antifa an...

I'm telling you that none of the things you obsess about ever registers on these people's radars. Firstly, I'm not "obsessing" about anything. Your words and actions say otherwise. No, you are the one who is obsessing. And using logical fallacies - the appeal to the number again - to support your a...

Re: The social justice wars

Women will be on board with this because they will feel that they are being included. No they won't. Feminists don't want a diversity of thought because truth goes against them. They don't really believe in diversity at all, but are using it as a ruse to gain power. Unfortunately most women don't h...

What measures do you think should be taken to ensure that women are protected from hearing the truth? I am not advocating that women need to be protected from hearing the truth.

Re: The social justice wars

In recent times it has been revealed that the English police force allowed the mass sexual abuse of young girls - in Rotherham, for example - because of their fear of being called racist. It's my impression that a significant number of people on the left are aware of what is going on in society, but...

Re: The social justice wars

Woman’s proneness to being spooked is a reality that has to be dealt with. We can’t just ignore it, not if we actually want to resolve the issue. If we continue to pretend that this feature of feminine psychology doesn’t exist and continue to confront these left-wing women in a hostile manner, then...

You can't even acknowledge when you're ignorant of something. Dan, you need to demonstrate that I'm ignorant of the thing in question.

I think I'm done here. If you can't make a rational argument then I agree. It seems that David and yourself have nothing to offer on this subject than name calling. Anyone can call others ignorant. It's not an argument. The particular format of Twitter lends itself to lying and deception - both for...

Re: The social justice wars

The obvious problem with Twitter is that it's very easy to lie - both for the writer and the reader. It's possible to interpret a tweet to mean just about anything you want. That's why the media love it so much. It's like printing money.

So you obviously believe that women are being bullied by anti-SJWs, such as myself.

Can you provide any evidence that this is happening, or is this just something you believe on faith?

The same source that the mainstream media uses.

Even then, if the source says that 2 + 2 = 4, the media will report that 2 + 2 = 5. That's what they call "informed reporting".

I agree with this. In addition, I predict that as the left becomes increasingly insane and power-drunk, following it's current course, it will itself further fragment into countless parts. The left is censoring itself out of existence.
