[quote] Yes... I have a 'Jaundiced View' of The World, Organizations, Human Nature, and People.


That may explain why you feel you must post in every thread with comments attempting to provoke an angry response.

Again, disinformation Gary...

My 'Provocation', resulting in your admitting to your angry response: Is merely not being provoked by you

What I don't do is respond to You and ML1 Classical Attacks. By you attempting to have me say "No I Am Not" to the silliest, and worse attacks. Then going back-and-forth discussing silliness.

That is the Classical Tactic of the Left/Right Wing, to divert attention when they are losing an argument.

I just "Comment" 'Why Would I Be That'? The answer then shows the real, and rather vile thinking of the Left/Right Wing.

Gary...

I will not fall into your silly trap. Yes... I do know that it results in you calling me names, then accusing me of what you are doing.

I am finding you rather easy.

Note: Finding this Tread, because of Gary and ML1, to be mildly amusing. A good change-of-pace from the other Serious Discussions.

We're not the only species in the Universe who can do that Janne, at least it's not proven yet. I also sometimes wonder what the 'advancement' of humans will bring for the future, I fear for my grand grand ...children as I won't experience the far future anymore in my knowing.

Don't think Human's are 'Advancing', at least at the DNA Level.

Our capacity to think and create: Allows us to make bigger, greater, better, and in some cases, more destructive 'Things'.

Perhaps our ability to create Destruction, will result in our demise.

Wondering is the capacity to think and create. Has/Will lead similar creatures in the Universe, to their own self-destruction?

Bad idea Janne, we'd grow out to be some mutated freaks:) If we even can't find a cure for ebola, we shouldn't start messing with Nature...

Julie...

Assuming we Humans Evolved on this Planet:

We are Nature and Natural (Nature Made Us). Therefore... Maybe Nature isn't as nice as we would like to believe, and the destruction we do is Natural and Nature's Plan.

Do I believe the above? No. But it makes one think.

Am I correct Clyde that you are a retired Policeman? If so I can only say that you have a very jaundiced view of the world, maybe due to your service.


Wasn't it Chris who posted that?

Yes...

Chris was the original Poster.

Gary placed it into this Thread, and commented 'Astute'.

Was replying to Gary's comment.

Gary...

The Post:

Am I correct Clyde that you are a retired Policeman? If so I can only say that you have a very jaundiced view of the world, maybe due to your service.

My answer:

Before PD: 2 Combat Tours in Vietnam, 5 years Active Military Service

Was a Policeman/Detective less than 50% of my working life.

After PD: Investigating Medicare/Medicaid Fraud.

I'm now a Senior Citizen.

Yes... I have a 'Jaundiced View' of The World, Organizations, Human Nature, and People. Especially those, either in Position of Authority, or Running 'Good for The People' Organizations.

Gary... Just an amplification.

Being a Senior Citizen, doesn't mean Retired.

I'm getting more and more, amused by your Responses (It does pass the time of day). Is it possible your Posts/Pests can get sillier? Answer: Yes.

Note to other Posters: Hopefully Gary doesn't Hijack other, more important Threads, by continually attacking another Poster - but not his Idea's.

Am I 'Hoping against Hope'?

The Black Death of 1348 was responsible for a lot of changes

This plague wiped out a high percentage of the population of Europe at the time. It was found that paper could be made from rags about that time. All of the discarded clothes of the dead were available for paper making. This led directly to the viability of the printing press.

Yes. About one third of the population of Europe died.
But that was not a conflict. Maybe it changed human way of thinking but I find that's far fetched.
Since then in Europe there have been wars about every 25 years...
Yes. There are still conflicts and wars in Europe.
When do we ever learn?

When our DNA advances?

In the end: It is about who to trust (Individuals - Controller's), and who can do the MOST damage (Individual's - Controller's).

Again, that argument only makes sense if an armed populace actually prevents a government from doing all that damage. It doesn't. What you have done is allowing to let individuals do more damage as well, besides also leaving the capacity of the government to kill millions of people.

We will see.

Ah indeed. The poor behaviour that you have mentioned is purely down to bad or couldn't care less parenting. Hardly surprising really when far too many kids enter the world as a result of a Saturday night at the pub session.

What is wrong about Saturday night at the pub session?

Gary...

Do you also believe this means I support Slavery?

Well, that is like asking the blacksmith as he is forging shackles if he supports slavery, considering your former employment and prison industries.

Your answer is an unthinking yes, as I knew it would be.

I think your answer is much more indicative of how prison industries are viewed by police officers and others in power. How they are willing to treat other human beings.

You did not even stop to consider that the blacksmith can answer no. Of course if that makes him a hypocrite, what does that make you?

Gary...

Calm down. Have a drink, or stop drinking. You're making a fool of yourself.

We don't even know who is behind this yet.

If it is Jihadist's:

The ending is coming nearer and nearer.

Note: NO ONE is say their Idea's will end. The NAZI's Idea's have never, nor will ever, end.

Just the Jihadist's feeling They May Win. That is what has been driving their movement since the '70s.

But they can not be prevented, which seems to be the selling point of gun control.

Murder also can't be prevented. Does that mean there shouldn't be laws against murder?

Ive never met a proponent of gun control laws that argues that gun control will completely 100% of the time prevent gun violence. The only people who Ive seen arguing that point are people who are against gun control laws when they are talking about what pro gun control people supposedly argue. Like you just did.

In the end: It is about who to trust (Individuals - Controller's), and who can do the MOST damage (Individual's - Controller's).

Took a little more time, than I thought it would.

Both you, and ML1, have self-exposed the Shallowness, Unthinking, and Worse, regarding what I have always said about Religious and Secular Believer's.

Note to other's: Isn't it true, that Religious 'Believing', and Ideological 'Believing' persons, both react the same, when confronted with the silliness of their 'Belief's.

They make the most outrageous responses, really believing their response's. As with the religious: The Secular Ideological 'Believers' react as if you have committed Blasphemy.

... Business is not a Morality Play, and shouldn't be...

Really?

I had thought that American business had moved along from the days of plantations slaves and segregation and slave labour and 'worse'...

What part of ENGLISH common law are you failing to grasp? The part where the King is permitted to grant sovereign corporations the right to do any thing they want? Go back and read Citizens United and have someone teach you about fiduciary duty.

Of course you can just keep on with the intentionally offensive troll posts against every person who refuses to do your bidding. One day that will bite you.

Troll Posts. Hmmmm....

Thank you for confirming what I posted. When the Left/Right Unthinking Ideologues are wrong, as they usually are: They start with the name calling.

Just asking ML1 (who you usually support): Why saying Business 'Is Not A Morality Play' would cause your cohort to accuse me of saying this means I support Slavery. Very simple question.

Gary...

Do you also believe this means I support Slavery?

Or will you continue to accuse someone of being a Troll again? My answer: Yes!

Both of you are very easy, as most Ideologues are.

Note: I believe Ideology is akin to Theology. Ideology is nothing more than Secular Theology

Haven't we already established mommy and daddy can have their kids stoned? What's the difference between Methylphenidate and pot?

Interesting question.

Disregarding Pot, for the moment. Are we over drugging our Children, with Prescription Drugs?


Yes.

I hope so because the generation brought up stoned has yet to take over ....

WE ALREADY DID!!!

My 60's Generation of, Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll did - Bill Clinton.

You weren't brought up stoned 24-7 from kindergarten, you got stoned once in a while after you got in high school.

Agree. Just a joke.

Note: In my neighborhood. More than once in a while. Sometimes 'Hard Drugs' (not me). Many didn't make it.

... Take a phrase to its extreme...

So you accept that business should have morals?


All in our only one world,
Martin

When you please explain your 'Slavery' Post.

Of course you will not.

ML1...


Please understand I am not some silly, inexperienced, 19 year old, Under Graduate. Whom the Ideologues on the Left and Right, bring into their Silly and Unthinking discussions. They make ridiculous accusations, and expect these youth's to respond. Thereby, deflecting a discussion, neither the Left nor Right, can win.

Their Typical Left/Right Wing 'Games' may interest some. not me.

Again: Please explain why you would accuse me of saying Businesses have the right to impose Slavery?

Is your thinking really that shallow?

I would suggest you look at human history and look at economics.

Of course there will be Wars of Independence. Don't think Logically, nor Sanely. When have Humans acted that way?

When they can Self-Subsist, as Human History has shown: They will resist ANY Control from The Mother World. They may have Power Mad Leaders. Why not? It has, and will always happen.

Saturn for Saturnians!

But thats the thing. Its pretty difficult to self subsist on an off world colony, especially if that off world lacks the capacity to sustain advanced life naturally. Colonies on the Moon and Mars or really any other planet in our solar system would for the most part be entirely dependent on Earth for pretty much everything.

And what if we ever get to completely different solar systems that happen to have worlds capable of sustaining human life naturally? Well at that point I don't think history applies to humanity anymore. At that point we have either gone past the singularity or the journey takes so long that any colony would simply never be under any Earth bound government control to begin with. But there is just no way that we reach faster than light travel and communication methods while retaining the current sort of civilization 'with more advanced tech'.

If one has drinkable water (possibly inside Jupiter's and Saturn's Moons). Minerals to build things. Ability to extract Oxygen. The FUTURE Colony's may be self-sustainable. Think FUTURE technology.
