I’m right wing and my Christian friends say “Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.”
the majority of christians are good, and fine people, for myself i have always been filled with curiosity and always searched for as much information as i could get
at one time 24 human species lived at the same time and they competed in groups, but the groups themselves cooperated
I believe it is the LW media that claims Christians think they are perfect which is a lie.
could be, i dont really listen to either left or right media
But you did accuse RW media. Where does that bias come from?
LIFE i can remember walking past the local JBS headquarters, i havent listened to the "talking heads" on media for 20 years but the topics make the regular news often and i research them never some charismatic hosts opinion
Sorry, you entirely missed the joke. You wrote, Man is a social animal, we hunted. In the context you wrote you suggested that you hunted men. And while this might not have been your intention, it is what you wrote. progressives might even call this Eugenics. Something I can't tell if you embrace, or not. I doubt you know history, or the contexts of it, as demonstrated to date.
When you admit that you're an old FDR liberal, does that mean we should simply assume all the baggage then that goes with that? FDR has a lot of baggage, just FYI, not the least of which is his similarities to Stalin. Is that what you intend to infer to us?
LOL... I suspect we were simply meant to have ignored that obvious detail....
infer whatever you wish, have a good day, there almost two FDRs there was doctor win the war, and the other more socialist leaning FDR, its just my experience that conservatives have been histrionically on the wrong side of social issues, maybe that's changing i dont have all the answers and care less and less the older i get
The solution is restoring the family [particularly children] as the priority of Western society. I find it interesting that it is usually women who are most vociferously against this idea.
I do realize that there are plenty of poorly behaved men and women out there but there really isn't a lot I can do about that. The best you can do is create the most support for the things you feel are most important.
I have participated in many, many forums over the past decades and if one thread has been consistent, it is that many people believe they actually understand your entire life experience and body of thought after one post on an internet forum.
You believe you understand me because I seem to fit the villain starring in your narrative. Nearly everybody has all kinds of complex opinions on all kinds of subjects. To assume you know me or how I think is laughable.
I do appreciate what you have written and there is a lot of truth in it, but context is everything and I believe you misunderstand much of what I have written. I can't possibly respond to all the questions you have as this would be better accomplished in person over a couple of beers, so allow me to say that I am not who you think I am [nobody is].
If you would like to continue chatting, that's fine, but to simply attack me doesn't make a great deal of sense. These are serious issues that affect a great percentage of the population and I believe it's time to talk about them after so many years of casting men as THE problem with all that ails Western society.
I understand you quite well. You're a very good writer. However, you still avoid my question, so I'll rephrase:
What do you see as the major factors that have reduced the idyllic scenario you long for? Who do you blame for the slow demise of what you think should still be the standard behaviors of men and women? Who and/or what is at the root of this change?
Since 2K it’s been the 21st Century, if that matters.
That’s a lie in and of itself.
That's exactly right.
Which is no more, but also no less absurd than the notion that less government is the solution to every damn thing.
And the reason they are both so absurd is that they are BOTH examples of binary thinking. And only the right thinks in binary. As proven by the fact that the ONLY ones who talk abut big government being "the solution to every damn thing" are right wingers.
You insist you know me "quite well" after a couple of posts?
You have asked me questions that I [or perhaps somebody much more qualified] could write a PhD thesis [on each]. Are you a teacher? All complex issues multivariate. The "idyllic scenario I long for" is getting society back in better balance...getting priorities straight again. Are you happy with what has taken place over the past half century? Every institution has taken a serious hit. There is massive systemic corruption at every level. Would you like to speak of any institution in particular?
It will take scholars decades to figure out all the factors involved in the demise of our culture, but just the same, there are not too many people who would deny that basic civility is a thing of the past. Lying, cheating, and stealing seems to be the order of the day. Are you happy with the way things are?
Speak for yourself [although you did good with the woman and the beer].
Just don't dance in public in Iran. You could end up with a 10 year prison sentence. Sounds like utopia to me.
Or don't stop banking with the dollar or your nation could be reduced to rubble. Definitely not utopia.
Utopia is wherever a happy person resides.
Such a MAGTOW argument here. So, women to you should be only allowed to stay in the kitchen, be pregnant, not have a job, totally rely on their husband for everything, etc? But then again, how do you explain someone like Mary Kay Ash, the founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics and all the other women out there who did things on their own?
I raised 2 daughters not to need a man. I raised 3 sons not to be with needy women. You bought an outdated product from the days when men hunted and gathered, brought food home, and defended the village from invaders.
Today, if someone tried to invade my home, my wife and daughters are expert marksman.
Don't wish women needed you; be something they want.
Again, this wasn't about you. It's about a disturbing trend where young people are choosing to go it alone. This leads to a breakdown in the family and society. Needing somebody and being "needy" are two different things. Look at the state of society. Do you believe this is working?
