Re: Trumpism

[During the campaign Clinton gave her support for open borders, and I think the idea of open borders is completely ridiculous, dangerous, and destructive] That’s the sort of deceiving fake news crap Trump and presumably Breibart would have spruiked for political reasons. “Trump is referring to a lea...

[Buddhism is calm, methodical, uneventful, intellectual] I think we are getting to the nitty-gritty of why I’m still disappointed with the attitude of non-anti Trump persons here, and appalled more generally at the lack of contextual wisdom that exists in voters these days.

"Russell is Black" He said half black - but in a black family setting. I'm not sure what the other half is. I only mention this as I've always been curious as to whether it was the understated white part of Obama that was really the factor in him being very politically capable - did it enable him to...

Re: Statement about Solway and Trump

I wonder if this quote from Kierkegaard, the context of which has been said all along by David and Dan in relation to Kevin, applies. Maybe the hatred of Gamergate has made Kevin’s enlightenment die. “When a fisherman has caught a fish in his net and wishes to keep it alive, what must he do? He must...

I like the thread in relation to potential new visitors – it is about the quality of the information from all sides. The Worldy Matters is a bit too hidden away for newbies.

Re: Statement about Solway and Trump

Moving this thread seems a really girly thing to do for me. It is chock full of interesting philosophical issues.

I really don't give a flying fart about the earnestness some have to enlightenment. I see it as an egotistical pride thing. Just another form of fundamentalism.

No one has mentioned The Last Man as yet, although the Übermensch has been mentioned, so I suppose it has been covered. I kind of feel we are so far into the Last Man era, that Trump’s election was just a unconscious way of rejecting that, not so much for the idealism of the Superman. https://www.yo...
