        There is no question in my mind but what the answer is a resounding YES.

        Well, the lousy PC mass media is essentially fucked now.

    Absurdity? I don’t think we’re at absurdity, I saw that sign being passed decades ago! We’re at the point where in hundreds of years, the history books will completely ignore there was a period of time such as ours! They’ll call it “The Great Unknown” because all of it would be too embarrassing due to the stupidity that is rampant nowadays! And that’s given me an idea for a story!

      good point

    Responsibility is slowly being stripped from the individual and placed upon his mental condition and circumstances.
    Absolute determinists like Sam Harris believe the self and free will are an illusion.
    That means we are responsible for nothing and are just flotsam on the river of fate.

      How very depressing

    It is but once you seek to explain a man’s actions as Freud did, then you find all sorts of reasons not to blame him. The next step is to treat him in order to get him to conform to societies standard. Perhaps the most interesting case is homosexuality. In the UK all those who were imprisoned have been pardoned.Is it possible that all imprisionment may be considered barbaric at some enlightened future time.

      it certainly is reminiscent of the programs instituted in the past where dissent qualified one for a stint in a psych ward or worse

    Ha ha ha Ha ha………..yes. It’s kinda been happening as far back as we humans can research. eye roll

        So why the hell is this a big deal now? It’s life. chuckle, suck it up, buttercup.

          Supposedly we have “progressed” from then, not so much seemingly

          1. GoldenPig2012

            Ha ha Ha Ha Ha Ha…………….that shit must come from the “everyone gets a trophy” and “life CAN be made fair” dumbasses. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha…………………………..ha ha ha ha ha ha………………………………..

            1. SEC

    SEC, so stop spreading it. eye roll, grin, DUH

    November 19, 2016
    1. SEC

      not spreading per se but pointing out that if you think we’ve “progressed” then we should be well beyond things like this

      November 19, 2016
      1. GoldenPig2012

        So, you’re just trying to prove a point. I get that.

        November 19, 2016
        1. SEC

          or open some eyes that too

          November 19, 2016
          1. GoldenPig2012

            Yes, that happens when we loudmouths start our shit.

    Agreed, what a selfish world we live in

    November 20, 2016
    1. SEC

      So it would seem where it seems that people seem to think more of themselves and less about others

      November 20, 2016
      1. sailorluna_777

        Agreed with your statement “that people seem to think more of themselves and less about others.” Humans, we are selfish by nature. There is a lot of good in this world, but normally, the bad is what the focus goes on and stays imprinted longer. The “leaders” of our country are the ones whos’ hands are dirtiest but not seen. Its just the way our world is slowly deteriorating from the inside out.

        November 20, 2016
    2. GoldenPig2012

      sailorluna_777, yes, we’re selfish, but we also aren’t, at times.

      November 20, 2016
      1. SEC

        GoldenPig is very right that we can and do at times forget ourselves and think of others first

        November 20, 2016
  15. sailorluna_777

    GoldenPig, Yes that’s also true. We become consume to try and please others and make everything right and be the best we can be do good, we forget ourselves in the process. Its a bitter sweet thing.

    November 20, 2016
    1. GoldenPig2012

      Can’t argue that, dear, but……………we do tend to rise above ourselves at times. Good enough.
