Well, in that case the Sturmabteilung who stormed the Capitol Building would as well see you as a chickenshit. They walked the Joker's talk while you just bitch and moan about everything from a safe distance. Oh, and make "predictions"

Hell, I spent nearly 25 years myself walking my own objectivist talk as a political activist. And I was punched, kicked, spat on by the objectivists at the other end of the spectrum.

But, come on, what the fuck have you ever actually done but come into places like this and huff and puff...a big bad caricature of a cartoon character for kids?

Then more truly pathetic bluster of this sort:

[They would be out of a super villain job, even the Joker couldn't compete.] :lol:

Now, when I do decide to act and do things be rest assured you won't hear about it, I prefer silence or stealth concerning malevolent activities of my own along with invisibility. I don't desire publicity, notoriety, or infamy at all, I just want to be a mysterious anonymous assassin in the night, you know, that guy that drives the authorities insane because they can never find out his true identity because he strikes like a ghost only to disappear like one too constantly. I want to be that guy and maybe someday I will be, who knows.

[You know, that guy in the dead silence and darkness of night you hear at a long distance with an evil chuckle taking pleasure or enjoyment in all the naughty things he's doing, and when you go after the chuckling in the darkness of night the laughter disappears fading away where they can never be found. Not a trail, trace, or even a hint of their presence, just the sound of laughter in the darkness of night vanishing as you draw near.]


It's that this sort of yak yak yak, yak yak yak crap doesn't embarrass you that leads me to suspect this is all just an "act" you are performing for us.

But again: WHY?!!

Yesterday they banned Rush Limbaugh and took down his platform, just as I thought, it won't end with Trump, they're coming for all conservatives or anybody that opposes the government. Just the beginning... 8)

Predictable really for anybody that pays attention to things like world history.

Biggie, breaking into government buildings is child's play [amateur hour], killing thousands of unwanted people is the real deal concerning revolutionary activity, if I wanted to do something it would involve a shit load of dead people. I'm just saying...

Like torturing people in a dark room somewhere peeling off their skin slowly with a knife laughing as I do it, something like that. No, I haven't done anything quite yet, still just content watching the world burn for now at least. I'm just left with my morbid wild imaginations for now as a hardworking law abiding citizen that pays taxes. Will that ever change? Maybe. 8)

I like having fun Biggie, I like to think of myself as a performing arts philosopher here from the confines of my anonymity.

In other words, a chickenshit living in a la la land that you have created entirely in your head.

But that's the good news, of course.

God help anyone who crosses your path when you finally do "come out" of the closet. You know, if there is a God.

You fancy yourself as some sort of revolutionary...just not an "informed, intelligent and articulate" revolutionary.

Closer perhaps to a...sociopath?

once a state certifies its election, the votes are legal. the constitution leaves elections and election laws up to the states, not the federal govt.

Here's the reality: insurrection is not protected by free speech. Violent overthrow of government in direct disregard for Constitutional process is not protected by free speech.

How difficult is it to understand that you can say whatever the fuck you want; however,

A) government does not require private enterprise to provide you a platform, and
B) You cannot continuously push a platform that essentially seeds doubt in our Constitutional processes that leads to attempted insurrection (this is part of the Constitution).

I'm fine with a government that allows individuals to share their ideas, but there is no rationale for allowing the same intellectually bankrupt conspiracy theories to be perpetuated in spite of evidence by those we entrust to have a thorough understanding of the Constitution. No publishers should be required to publish books by Holocaust deniers, no college should be required to host Holocaust deniers as guest speakers.

It's not that these ideas should be disallowed from discussion, or that individuals who mention it aloud or in writing should be prosecuted. Any yahoo can stand on a street corner or print fliers that say the election was a fraud; but our elected officials, in a Republic, must be held to a higher standard than that.

The trouble is, government is giving tons of money to woke tech, encouraging them to be even more woke.
That's not fair.
Woke tech should be broken up into itty, bitty pieces, that or give unwoke tech the same amount of money.

Well, it's always worked with you.

After all, that is one explanation for why, when I suggested this on the poop thread...

We choose a subject relating to "distinctions" that we both make in regard to moral and political value judgments at the existential intersection of identity, conflicting goods and political economy.

We discuss our respective philosophies in an intelligent and civil manner.

And then along the way you can point to particular instances that nail down your accusations here.


...you responded with...

nah bruh im good


A chickenshit in the sense that like so many others here, you don't want to explore your own moral and political value judgments too deeply. After all, what if I manage to yank you down into the hole that I'm in.

Really, unless, as with Karpel Tunnel, you have your very own "visceral, intuitive, deep-down-inside-me" Self, how do you construe your own ego/superego at the existential intersection of identity, value judgments and political economy.

Given a particular context.

Come on, let's commence a new thread on the philosophy board and really go deep this time. You start it.

The irony here being that, in many respects, you and I share the same political prejudices in regard to the near neo-nazis that are now ensconced here. The fulminating fanatics on the right.

It's just that I recognize them as political prejudices rooted in dasein. I'm merely curious to explore the extent to which you [and others] don't. From my frame of mind there is always the possibility that one of you will succeed instead in yanking me up out of the hole.

Come on, Wendy, I've challenged you any number of times to go here...

...with me.

So, it's the same with you:

Really, unless, as with Karpel Tunnel, you have your very own "visceral, intuitive, deep-down-inside-me" Self, how do you construe your own ego/superego at the existential intersection of identity, value judgments and political economy.

Given a particular context.

Come on, let's commence a new thread on the philosophy board and really go deep this time. You start it.


Note to others:

Let's see how the chickenshit wiggles out of it this time. :wink:
