I disagree with the assumption that the person who gives up his life for another is less valued. I think it's quite the opposite. Look at Christ, for example.
Wouldn't it be more accurate to say their death is valued rather than their life?

Seen today at my local bullion dealer. Apparently I can get a new dong for pretty cheap!
Are you suggesting that's what's been holding your dating life back? >:D

Re: Jordan Peterson's Influence On My Life

Women are more worthy than men if you value continuation of the species. It takes only one man if you want a thousand babies but it takes hundreds of women. ;) Secondly, you really think you have free will? ;D From a procreation point of view, I don't disagree with your first comment. But clearly s...

Re: Jordan Peterson's Influence On My Life

I don't think there's any greater way to say "you matter; you can do things" than to say that it is your duty to protect and defend the women and children in your life, even to the point of your own death. That's an interesting way of looking at it, Xan, but it's implicit in that line of thinking t...

Re: Every knee shall, every tongue confess

I don't think it's partisan at all..it's just amazing and disappointing to me how now "everyone's got to do it". Like somehow this is the only, and most important issue in the world. The officers have been arrested and charged. The system is processing it. Great, move on. Instead, it somehow goes wi...

Re: Abolishing police

I expect a much lower crime rate with no police. Why? Short answer in two phases: 1. Short run: Lots of armed citizens. (Note that armed citizens have a much lower rate of incorrect use of force than police, because they don't have "qualified immunity" to protect them, although in anarchism that wo...

flagrant Memorial Day weekend celebrating.
Nothing meaningful to add in response to the question, but I found your wording, particularly the aspect of "flagrant....celebrating" quite amusing :)

Re: Being supportive of rioters

Presumably you are white like myself? People many times make a reference to "white privilege". I think it should be better stated as "black penalty". <snip...> Yes, I am "white" (IMO this is such a large bucket these days). A lot of people have not had their way paved to success. But for almost for...

Re: Another angle on the recent events in America and the world

Peaceful protests are fine. But riots must be put down by force, and looters must be shot . Anything else is encouraging more violence. I'm not sure I'd go quite as far as you state above, but agree that riots must be put down by force. Instead, what we saw here is 1) the looters were largely ignor...
