This is how islands form and erode. This is some kind of surprise?
That's what I was thinking.

WTF man? Of course he was talking about going some where else with sufficient resources and habitable conditions. You might as well have assumed he meant we should set up a colony on the surface of the sun for all the idiocy you've attributed to him.
As long as you stayed inside during the day, and only went out at night, a solar colony might be workable.
For the love of god what do you bloody fucking hippies want? Want us to shut it all down so we can go back to the god damn stone age? How about we all sit around the camp fire, smoke weed, and eat what ever nuts we can find?
Do you have any idea how dangerous and polluting wood fires are? People get burned all the time, and the smoke from them causes asthma in small children. The soot blackens everything in sight, and the carbon released contributes to global warming. Clearly campfires are WAY too dangerous to be used as a power source!
Precisely. An "entitlement" is a service someone is required to provide to you. A right is generally defined in the negative: No one is permitted to do X to you. No one is permitted to prevent you from doing Y.
Right to life - not allowed to kill you.
Freedom from torture - not allowed to torture you.
Freedom from slavery - not allowed to require work from you.
Right to a fair trial - not allowed to penalize absent a fair trial.
Freedom of speech - may not prevent you from speaking your mind.
One of these things is not like the others!
The right to a fair trial IS a "positive" right, in that it implies that other people (judges, jurors, witnesses, etc) can be compelled to stop what they'd otherwise be doing and conduct a trial instead.
All "rights" have an implied responsibility. Usually, it's for everyone else to respect that right. That's why you don't have a right to your opinion
Wait, I don't have a right to my opinion??? Well, I guess that's your opinion - but by your own logic you can't have it.
Yeah, those bastards who want everyone to have a good standard of living. I hate those guys.
Yeah, those bastards who want someone else to pay for everyone's good standard of living. I hate those guys.
Some parts make sense: At infinite velocity, a particle would necessarily pass through every point in the universe.
Actually that happens at the speed of light: to a photon moving at the speed of light, time has stopped completely and the universe is forsehortened from a 3D volume to a 2D plane - so effectively the photon is at every point along it's path "at once", at least from it's point of view.
An age is called Dark not because the light fails to shine, but because people refuse to see it. -- James Michener, "Space"
