Somebody put the genie back in the bottle!!!
People tend to self-segregate into their preferred echo chambers. Hence the reason you can't make a pro-gun comment on HuffPo, or an pro-choice argument on FOX News, without being attacked by the general populations therein.
Humans don't need religion as an excuse to be self-centered assholes.
So hows that lawsuit against Apple going? You know, the one over Apple's Facetime app?
A non-denominational guy dies and goes to heaven. He is greeted by St. Peter, who informs the man that heaven is segregated by faith.
"Since you are a person of no denomination, we'll let you choose which group you want to spend eternity with."
The first area they walk past has one side filled with people drinking and having a good time; the other side was adorned with devices obviously meant for self torment.
"Catholics" the Saint remarked.
Saint Peter and the man continued walking past the different groups of heaven, with the man considering each one. Finally, the pair come to a massive wall, stretching as far as the eye can see in every direction.
"Who lives in there?" Asked the man.
St. Peter replied, "oh, those are the Evangelicals. They think they're the only ones here."
"If you locked 1,000 code monkeys in a room with Teletypes, could they pump out some Shakespeare?"
So, what you're saying is, I play guitar because all humans have an instinctual impulse to play guitar?
Because that doesn't really make sense.
Which kind of blows a gigantic hole in the "when robots do all the work we'll all just be artists" theory.
If you don't think tyranny can accomplish anything good, why do you promote democracy, aka "tyranny of the majority?"
I find Google finding censorship acceptable in its search results alarming now.
Only ads are censored, not regular search results (Google shopping = ads).
You seem to be under the impression that there's something morally wrong with possessing drugs.
Yea, how about you go ahead and pilot that "popsicle stick in the ass" idea, and get back to us with your findings....
I recommend keeping tweezers handy.
That makes sense.
Clearly the confederate flag killed those innocent people.
Nothing to do with the gun.
So... you snidely complain about people blaming one inanimate object, then immediately proceed to blame another...
When you see someone sporting a Confederate battle flag, you no longer have to wonder if he's a bigot.
I fucking love it when people say ironic shit.
Bigotry - it's OK, so long as you're only bigoted against people you assume are bigots, right? Fuck proof, my opinion is as good as gold!
That's riiiight, there aren't any Neo-Nazis in Germany. How silly of me. Oh wait, the exact opposite is true.
I would be willing to argue that the swastika evokes a stronger emotional response in Germany than the confederate flag does here in the states.
Did you know that in Germany, where the swastika is banned, neo-nazi's fly the Confederate battle flag?
Thus proving that banning symbols does nothing about the ideology they symbolize.
