I don't think he talks about it as much as I do, but I come from some history of this... Once there was a religious thread where a guy actually believed that Tyrannosaurus Rex ate plants before the fall of man. I defended the guy in the community. Sure, it seems silly that a carnivore like that would eat plants, but there is no need to laugh him out of town. Maybe I'm the only one interested in WHY he believed that, but I think people have a right to believe what they want and not suffer persecution and censorship by gangs of thugs. I'd defend any one of you as well and that's probably why you think I'm friends with serenesam. I don't know him anymore than I know you. Actually, I think I know more about you lolYou and serenesam talk about censorship and free speech and politeness to opponents in relation to your presence at this forum.
You probably missed my post here Peter Joseph Stefan Molyneux Debate.Meanwhile, the freedomain radio forum (an organization you both seem to have more affinity for), is insanely heavy handed in protecting their own space from the political opposition. I have tried to contact Stefan Molyneux and his staff with a question through several avenues, including their forum, and they have yet to acknowledge my existence. A new member's first five posts at their forum is manually moderated before being posted and they apparently rejected one of mine even though it was just a question about fair use and copyright permission. Were any of your or senersam's posts manually moderated here?
I'm no friend of Stefan and wouldn't dare post over there. I jumped through all the hoops to signup, which contains a question "why do you want to signup?" where you have to kiss stefan's butt sufficiently such that his minions then grant you access. It left a bad taste in my mouth, so I never made my first post. I'd been banned by now anyway.
But that doesn't mean I can't learn something from Stefan. I just can't talk to him because he reserves the right to be right by any means. One guy said he didn't believe in freewill, so Stef said, "well, I don't talk to robots so goodbye" and hungup on him. You're not allowed to interrupt him, but he doesn't have a problem interrupting you. The bottomline is he's a narcissistic capitalist building a business where he's more interested in making money and building a brand than finding truth, though he is getting better as time goes on... probably because he's getting richer and feeling more philanthropic.
You're right. He's doing the same thing he said kings and emperors did, which is ferreting out opposition and eliminating them. So, by definition, his clan is going to be a group of yes-men, since they are the only ones to survive.I have a heavy suspicion Molyneux has taught his followers not to just ignore trolls but to largely ignore the well meaning opposition.
His own forum is a safe space.FDR are all about laughing at sjw's and their safe spaces but what are the FFR forums, storm front forums? Heavily moderated safe spaces that shut down and out those who disagree with them.
I wish I had some compatriots. Nice statement btw. "heavily fortified digital domains" - that's spiffy Hey, how do you know they're heavily fortified?You laugh at safe spaces while your compatriots sit behind their heavily fortified digital domains that can't even tolerate the presence of someone who just disagrees with them, let alone someone posting material or assertions antithetical to their own doctrines.
Learning. I'm a sapiophile.So it's like what's the point?
LOL!Are you two just lonely for conversation? Lol. Just want to shoot the breeze with your diametrically opposed political opposites? Sing Christmas carrols between the trenches?
I'd like to teach the world to sing...
I wouldn't say you and I are diametrically opposed. We agree on some things.
I'm not asking how your day went or what you had for dinner. I keep it about business. I'm not bored. My to-do list is miles long. Idk, I just want to figure this race stuff out. You could be right or serenesam could be right. I just don't know... but I want to know.
I feel that way about some things too, but I prefer to say "I won't say you can't change my mind, but I can't imagine how you would." I don't think it's right to say it's not possible for my mind to change because I can't predict the future and can't eliminate the possibility of some evidence coming to light.My own mind is pretty much settled on how to approach race and resources so you're not going to convince me of anything different.
Because Stefan's board sucked. Maybe it's that I don't do well in crowds because, the more people get together, the lower the average iq of the group becomes. Then mob rules take effect and I run for the hills. I'm better 1 on 1. Though, that isn't why I chose this place, just that it's probably the reason I'm still here.And exactly, if you're really here for discussion and not something else, why indeed DID you pick a board with no audience?
Imagine a chain-driven gear set like from a motorcycle. Suppose it has a 1:3 ratio. One bike gets 11/33 and another gets 13/39. Which will get more power to the ground? I asked a "physicist" that who had 60,000 reputation on the board and he couldn't see how it would make any difference. I absolutely hate pros. I can't imagine professional philosophers would be any different.
Can you see the difference? The chain has mass and is longer with the 13/39. Plus the 13 sprocket is taller, which gives it less leverage to accelerate that extra mass that the chain has. I've done the math and I've done the tests and yup, it's a difference you can actually feel. It's like a hidden power boost that isn't hidden at all, it's just that everyone laughs at the idea.
But anyway, what was your question for Stefan? Maybe I can tell you what I think he would say.
I like Eminem. Some other rappers are ok, but he's about it. Nothing about race, but I just can't relate to the gangsta lifestyle. I also don't listen to Brittney Spears or the Back Seat Boys lol
