Wow, USA just told China and EU that they cannot get oil from Iran anymore. Wow, talk about an imperialist power move.

    And the truth/lies bit, I can see where you're coming from, but lies are an essential part of intelligent acts. It's a way to evade the consequence of an ethically wrong decision. China is not going to tell its citizens about how it's treating the Uyghurs, even though their subjugation is coldly rational and realist.

    Ahh I see what you mean now. I agree with you. I was confused by context and thinking of rationalism the intellectual tradition. And you're right, lying is necessary at times. We're forced into lying because we have to engage with other people and structures that are themselves engaging in bad faith on purpose. Two people, countries, whatever should never have to lie if they're engaging in good faith though.

    My sarcasm meter is also generally lacking, but even more so through text.

Tony Abbott told Indiginous Australians "Thank you for putting up with the invastion"

    The indiginous had no idea how to fight what was on the other side of the pond and likely never even had a civilization to begin with. So putting up with the invasion was the best these people could do for themselves.

    Karl marx...Of course socialism has always been part of civilization, but he defined it into a movement that seeked to help the little guy using the government. More than just using the government for the greatness of the nation as before.

    He is one of the greatest, and most devoted statesmen in history. No leader was so purely devoted to his country as him, and the fact that his health ruined so early in his leadership is a tragedy, and the fact that Stalin lead after him was an even bigger one.

    A lot of the people I watch are having their ad funding cut off over the slightest thing and I don't think it is right.

    Yeah I agree that it was pretty bad, and their algorithms now do favor large companies more than the creators, but I also think it was unavoidable as they are just being a good capitalist company and maximizing their profits.

I think globalism is dying. People realize that globalism leads to global government and the gutting of their culture and they are saying no. That is also why the Eu is dead in the long term as people are finding out that their love for their people and culture out powers something that isn't ever going to happen anyways.

    tomasth, 1. Cultures are very different. So much so that human cultures have been clashing for thousands of years. 2. Seriously doubt war will bring everyone together unless America somehow beat the shit out of the world and took over...Germany or France(18th and early 19th century France). No empire throughout history has ever been able to do it.

    3. Lastly, A.i will be developed by each society and people to be who they wish it to be. It will not be able to force what you think will happen.

    But the whole point is not to replicate the original mind. It's basically a new mind. lol

    No but it does not matter adults typically protect kids and kids are socialising with other kids who have similar social skills.

Nearly every week, I get a PM from somebody asking me to ban their account because they somehow lack the mental strength to stay away from this forum. If you want to leave, then just leave. I won't be banning any accounts. FFS.

    Will, I want you to know that I deeply appreciate this forum and your work and without this place my life would be negatively impacted. I've learned alot here and and love the many personalities here. I greatly appreciate the monk level patience you have when it comes to our nonsense sometimes.

    They should do what I did; change email with a scrambled password, then scramble the FT account password. No recovery, only the added shame of creating a second account.
