    Sometimes, it's not necessary to debate when the evidence is there. It's simply just that most people are resistant to it. I'm speaking broadly of course.

    I'm actually amazed that some people can't read charts and graphs yet they claim rationality. Talk about irony.

    And by the way, I'm not talking about you specifically.

    Don't forget that charts and graphs can be influenced & partial so part of being Rational is not always believing everything that supports your narrative because we should always try to be as objective & open-minded as possible.

    And about the part or component that are influenced, is that your guess?

    No that's just part of the consequences when we have groups out there trying to sway us & win our approval. There's just too many advantageous reasons out there for them to be Influenced in this way.

    I'd say confirmation bias exists in almost every study.

    Check out the wool that was pulled over the eyes of the public for decades with the low-fat, cholesterol, and animal fat nonsense for the purpose of selling vegetable oil.



    What a crime. Millions of people suffered and died early due to falsified studies so corporations could make money. Just now are we correcting it, but who is getting punished? Apparently we're just chalking it up to "oopsie" instead of malicious intent.

    ????????????????

    Anyways, nice way of dodging the question and responding with a response with more guesses.

    You might want to check out the charts and graphs in Stefan Molyneux's video "The Truth About Crime."

    Did you just find out about that video when I posted it here myself a week or two ago?

    I've been all over those charts and graphs for some time. I plan on using them in a response on these forums.

    I believe Stefan genuinely wants to help African Americans and eliminating physical abuse of children, as he suggests, may help.

    But even if we eliminated street crime by his recommendation, there are still other crimes beside street crime. And their cause must be isolated as well and answered for.
    "The stress of nature never ends, but at a certain level still other driving forces originate which put the whip to the creative power of man with a multiplied force... The new relations are detected first by a few (with the finest moral tentacles), afterwards by more, then they are consolidated in rules which begin to push aside the earlier moral code and in the end eliminate it."

    No, I have known about that video for quite some time now.

    Do you mean so-called "white-collar crime?" I tend to see that more as for example, "cheating on some test" at school. Given that general competition can't be eliminated due to the need to create an amazing society, the act of cheating is predictable. There will be people that want to cheat and essentially "steal" for something they didn't earn.

    The ultimate question becomes, exactly how many people of the billions of people on the planet would be able to actually do so? Not many.

    Or is that racial purification?
