I've given up on trying to teach anyone here anything (They gave Socrates hemlock, now this guy.)

Posted on 02/12/2006 7:39:47 AM PST by a true thinker

There's no helping you. This site is now just a diversion -- like a train wreck. This site is inherently for and about raving egomaniacs, and Jim's site policies -- which amount to excluding reality and actual dialogue in favor of political/militaristic pornography -- is conducive to cognitive dissonance, which at the times your worldview is threatened leads you into psychotic breaks (on the political cognitive plane, that is, and just maybe in other realms too). Not to mention that your baseline politics is based in mythology about American demographics, science, economics, ethics etc. You spoonfeed each other in the first place, so rationality on FR is always constrained to small scope matters. (You try to make up for this by shifting rapidly to things on which you share prejudices.)

FR is a purist's dream illustration of Kant's opinion that "Most people claim to be thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices." The name of the site is an Orwellian joke -- the only freedom truly here is the animal kind the uncivilized insist on, the only 'res publica' of interest is of acting in conspiracy to screw the public good for private gain, the only laws and people you truly like are the ones that permit/protect the anarchy, parasitism, and thievery you prefer, and immoralism is the true religion you espouse. FR is a mismanaged zoo, really, and I like coming here on occasion -- the sights are alternatingly horrifying and amusing, but always a reminder of what the Enlightenment was a fight against.

Best wishes.

How telling that you regard yourself as the "true thinker". And you wonder why people aren't interested in dialog with you?

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Ya, ya, ya. If it is so bad, then do as you say and leave...go make your own board to be the utopian board you claim to know so much about. Others have tried...note their traffic and actual impact...none to date can claim the traffic or the impact that FR has had.

Is that what really galls you...that despite being so "bad", it still gets the traffic and the impact?

Oh well...two last comments then.:

1) Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you, and;

2) ... IBTZ.

"a true thinker". So far above the rest of us intellectually that the nic informs us of that opinion.
