Pedro's Corner

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

Yes he was, and teachers hated him. In fact he was so badly behaved in fifth grade history class that Mrs. Penderfield begged the principle to exchange him for another student.


I am praying that you got that out of this book:

I must be terribly wrong somehow.


Over and over and over again: it depends on the particular context.

In regard to most of them [like gun control] you either come off as a rabid declamatory objectivist or you go on a "yak yak yak" spree spewing out all sort of "social media" sub-mental gibberish.

And [of course] you refuse to go here:

Okay, you're looking for the truth, right?

But: Aside from what you say it is and others say it is, what facts have been established...and where is the documented evidence to substantiate it?

Also, I am willing to acknowledge that my own take on all of this is rooted only in what I have read about it and heard from others. And in my own subjective political prejudices which are ever and always subject to change given new experiences and new information.

Will you admit the same? Or, again, are you just one more "my way or the highway" political objectivist who sees only what you already insist must be true in order to sustain a belief that you are in sync with the "real me" in sync with the "right thing to believe". And that anyone who does not think exactly like you do is basically the scum of the earth.

In other words, the place which you don't dare to go because you've got so much invested in thinking that you know everything that needs to be known about everything that really matters.

Just say the word, and we can start that thread.


And this:

Seriously though if you let me I can cure you of objectivism.

Yes, right now my own frame of mind is still "the place which you don't dare to go because you've got so much invested in thinking that you know everything that needs to be known about everything that really matters."

You lose all that, true. But look at all you gain. Options for example. With the objectivist, there's only one option: "my way or the highway". Every time you think, feel, say or do something you have to ask yourself, "is this what everyone who thinks and feels and says and does exactly what I do think, feel say and do?"

Everything is always either/or. Your trapped in your own insufferable dogma.

What, you don't think that construing your own moral and political identity as "fractured and fragmented" doesn't take balls of steel?

No, I guess you wouldn't at that. :lol:

It would, if you actually did.

But that doesn't change that the sentence you quoted didn't make any sense.

Remember what we agreed about you trying to be clever? I'll end up making a fool out of you and then you'll foe me.

Where will that leave us then? :wink:

Dementia is not clever.

I'm not saying you have it as a condition.

But maybe you need some sleep.

What happens if you toast the bread with the peanut butter?
