You know, I've noticed that even though there's a strong impulse to make smores, and preparations made, it always ends up with everybody drunk and just burning the marshmallows on the end of a stick, eating all the chocolate and then running around the campfire naked before tripping over a branch, passing out and waking up covered in ticks and mosquito bites.

I've been part of so many camping trips where there was every intention of making smores and it never seems to work out.

Non-violence can be derived from any ethical position that views others as equal to yourself in all ways.

Yes, this. And not even in "all ways". All I need to do is see others as equal in the sense of existing to have an ethical position.

To treat others as I would like to be treated. The "Golden Rule" is not a Christian innovation. See, Uhl's "Enlightened Selfishness".

The PB is, by definition, for PIRATES.

Are you saying that everyone who uses The Pirate Bay is also hijacking ships in the Indian Ocean and holding the crews for ransom? I had no idea.

I thought they were just downloading porn and Transformers movies.

Silly person.

And you can always explain away any attacks of conscience by claiming you simply want everyone to be personally responsible for themselves, even as your policies take away the means to do so from the majority of people.

I wish I'd written that.

It's sort of like claiming your view represents the majority while trying to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of legal voters.

You're a ridiculous, abject moron.

No argument.

For the record, the ad-hominem in question was calling Marlin's integrity, intent, and legitimacy into question as your justification for calling his position and opinion unviable and of no value.

Please quote the part of my original comment where I did any of that or even implied any of that.. Otherwise, you may just be full of it.
