Re: The social justice wars

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. The left does not have any unifying vision anymore. Some emerging alternatives are...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

What I find amazing is how deeply *you* are wrapped up in the politics of my country. This thread is about "European G̶e̶r̶i̶a̶t̶r̶i̶c̶s̶ Genetics" after all and you keep on bringing up this flawed concept of some European identity in the context of some "whiteness" Lets first talk about why you ar...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

Intriguing Vice report (not bad, but not sure how representative of the larger group). You are really siding with people like this?

I was wrong about him being determined to build the anti-immigration wall, but that only reinforces my overall point. What do you mean? the House approved a spending bill with $1.6 billion for the border wall in 2018 and prototypes are being built as competitive bids. It's true that he'd need anoth...

Re: The social justice wars

Yes, but hostility is at the root of it all. Ignorance is, of course, what's really at the root. Because old school white males have a long history of treating women and minority groups like shit.

Re: Endgame / Enlightenment

Your question is confused by mixing two categories: you start with presuming a spiritual or philosophical term and then continue contrasting it with scientific views on the universe (e.g. cosmological theories) and then you finish with some teleology about purpose. It means you're a bit all over the...

Re: Impermanence and meaning

Why should it make a difference what I am or what words used to describe it? Because it makes all the difference! Those differences are also qualitative: one cannot step over and remain consistent.

Men need to stop being hostile towards women. ... The anti-SJW movement is never going to succeed in its aims if it continues to treat women and minority groups as the enemy. But hostility and animosity is not the issue at all, it's not even the complaint from the SJW! It's for example way more abo...

Yes, yes, you posted that for the sake of posting. Go study the pointers and the authors writing it. They bring some clear intellectual grip with them and would be located I guess somewhere in "left leaning libertarian", which is "reformed Marxism" to some.

Re: The social justice wars

One aspect of my own value-set has to do with eurocentrism. I do not see this as chauvinist necessarily but as a realistic and also a 'masculine' position. What you did there is first redefining what "euro" and "eurocentric" means and by doing so obliterating the actual meaning of this phrase in cu...

Re: White men, European genetics, masculinity and genius

But I diametrically oppose your claims of that being about "real things". The only relation it has to reality is that the charade is masking a craving for reality, identity and to derive protection from the act itself.

People were fighting against the SJWs for many years before the alt-right ever existed, and I don't see any connection between anti-SJWs and the alt-right. This is true. Most of the serious critiques I've encountered would qualify as centrist and some as libertarian. A lot of Christians resists as ...
