I'm amazed of how you lot managed to completely split my OP totally apart, and take it totally out of context and bring in just about any irrelevance you could possibly bring to the table. After reading all of your replies, I tried hard to decipher what could have triggered what I wrote into the obvious troll thread it became and what angered you lot so much that you ended up with the answers you wrote. Maybe I had a moment of "pure idiotic", or I inadvertently stirred up so many emotions in you that you just simply couldn't stay on topic. Let's summarize:
- One contributor attacks me for using the word Censored (which is me misspelling the word Censure) and thus derails the topic.
- It gets better, another contributor thinks that 13% of our population are idiots.
- And then another contributor somewhat thinks it's important to point out that he thinks I must be a far-right Nazi sympathizer or something.
- AAAAND numerous contributors can't for the life of them connect communism to socialism which leads to Censorship, so therefor I'm obviously so illiterate that I didn't make that connection either.
- And if I disagree with all of the above, then I'm one of those tin-foil hatters (obviously) that believe that the would should end yesterday and no matter what they say, I'll still be stuck in yesteryear.
Ok, let's get this topic back ON TOPIC shall we? I'll try one last time before I simply wave my white flag, climb down my prepper bunker and hide until the world according to Urkel returns to the day when my father was a little girl:
We - the people have a tendency to let our feelings get in the way of science. Sure, ethics is what set us apart from the animals...even I will buy that one, but what I was trying to say here was that we need to let science be science and keep ourselves to the facts instead of letting our feelings run away with the better of us.
The Ebola virus MUST be isolated BEFORE it reaches too many countries and gets totally out of hand. The only way to do this is to treat the virus where the virus is, instead of bringing the infected people home and thus risk the entire population. I can't understand why that could be so hard to understand, explain it instead of dumping a gazillion personal attacks.
In communistic regimes - censorship is pretty common and it's very hard to get any unbiased communication across anywhere. But it isn't just communist countries that tries hard to put a damper on communication, socialist countries isn't far away either, Sweden is an excellent example of this (and this is something that a LOT of Swedish people think too, just ask them or read some of the few unbiased uncensored forums & newspapers there are).
When science gets ignored, say...basic cleanliness and routine becomes extinct. Let me take Denmark as an example. In Denmark it's considered very rude not to help out when you're invited to Dinner, everyone wants to chip in. That's the nice part, what wasn't so nice though was that it's very common that the visitors often go directly to chopping up vegetables and handling meat without even bothering to clean their hands. This issue became so big in Denmark that it made headlines in the news, people where simply so social that it was considered fanatic to be too clean and it made you look unsocial if you where to remind others of their basic hygiene.
Now, if you can't see the connection here, maybe I simply suck at explaining it to you, but I can pretty much promise you - these things are really related.
