Hit a nerve, did I? Sorry. No judgments. If its correct, it just means you just think differently. It's not even a big deal. For the purposes here, it just means you'll tend to take discussions in a more literal way. > "Autistic" - you just keep polishing your pseudo scientific > garbage eh. Now you are firmly in the grounds of fascist > 'psychiatric' 'science'. lol. Dude, my niece has Asperger's. She's brilliant, talented, and I love her - and there is no 'fascist psychiatry' involved. Her life, and her relationships with her parents and others all benefited when the diagnosis was realized, and appropriate communications techniques used. >> You focus on the words, but seem to >> have difficulty actually relating to the underlying scenarios or >> seeing the dynamics of human relationships within those scenarios. >> It's all this bullshit about "the logic" of morality.

You've called what I've written bullshit numerous times and I didn't get all shitty about it. And I don't "alpha" towards anyone. If I did, I wouldn't be so quick to insult myself, say you have the bigger dick, and so on. I don't play those games. I just recognize them. But, when I disagree, I say so. And I defend my position and state things how I see it. You are, of course, free to disagree and that's fine. Like I said, I don't have enemies. >> But they are still a representation social in-group/out-group dynamics > > I bow to your superior wisdom, massa Well stand the fuck up then. > > Sure.

Don't misrepresent me. I never said I thought it was right. I never said I was a pacifist to that level. We're talking about morality, and the ways it gets interpreted. Specifically, how morality can be objective, or at least not relative -- and yet still get interpreted differently by different cultures and people. There are pacifists which interpret it that way however, and I'm just acknowledging an interpretation that is different my own, without denigrating it.

I also already addressed the other point, trying to indicate how I meant my comment, but I'll do so more clearly. YOU'RE RIGHT. I PHRASED THAT PISS-POORLY AND WAS MISTAKEN. > > Why would I bother 'thinking' about it when such a great > philosopher like you has it all figured out and is teaching us > poor betas? Poor betas? I never referred to you like that. I don't claim to have all the answers, either. I'm just giving my opinion on stuff, and the way I see things. You could have engaged me with "Well, that's interesting. I never thought it of that way. I think this way, for these reasons." Instead, you've advanced no real ideas of your own, and only proceeded in attacking mine. It's a good tactic for a debate on your part, and I'll engage. This sort of thing is helpful to me, because it gives me an opportunity to focus on minutia and clarify. >> That's why indentured servants rebelled.

I already said in another message that there were a few strong-minded types that could resist the fear, think freely, and so on. Again just because something is possible for the FEW doesn't mean its possible for EVERYONE. I'm not interested, particularly, in tailoring a political theory to what favors the intellectual, physical, or other elites. I'm interested in a political theory that can cater to everyone. > What, on fucking earth, makes you think I'm interested in any > paternalistic, psychobabbling nonsense from you? > > The topic, as far as I was concerned was what practical things > could be done to limit state power, not to "give meaning to my > life". You apparently don't know very much of what it means for people to live without a state. I've lived in squats and communes. Everyone I've met was filled with a true passion for something apart from the politics and the agenda. It's vitally important, in terms of the "the movement" primarily because: The state fills an important role: it provides structure for people. That structure is a type of MEANING. The patriotic soldier serves his "country" and derives meaning from it. The daily worker in a factory, takes an "honest job" .. pays his taxes.. and derives fulfillment.. meaning from it. Find what fulfills you, apart from what the establishment says you should want.. that, by itself, limits state power. You're one less individual so deeply under their control. Live that way, and inspire others do to likewise. > Au contraire. I was interested in a concrete reply, but > admitedly, only to illustrate the flaws in your position. So you weren't actually interested at all. What you're actually interested in, is arguing. The dick measuring contest. Like I said. > > Are you autistic or what. YOUR first message whining about off > topic posts was nothing but STUPID 'confrontational' bullshit. > And now you are crying because you got 'confronted'? Pathetic. > Actually, my first post was a reply to Razer. I didn't piss and moan about anything, actually. I bellyached about the bullshit on this list after his panties got all in a bunch for zero reason, and he started taking me to task for nothing at all, trying to claim that I don't know what a "front organization is" and all sorts of other stupid shit. >> I act as mentor for some cognitively disabled adults. > > > Has NOTHING to do with limiting state power. Sure it does. The disabled are some of those that are absolutely reliant on the state. A common objection from statists is "Well, who would care for the disabled, who would build the roads, blah blah." You're a fucking flake if you don't understand that limiting state power is all about providing alternatives to state services. >> I do this on top of my day job, which is in cloud infrastructure type >> shit. > > > Oh, that's more interesting.

The most I've seen is how federal agent types can so easily coerce businesses into handing over info they have no real reason to hand over. Any overt sabotage is either a bit above my pay grade, if on a software/server side, or more likely entirely done on the network side which isn't what I do. > > Ah, 'oppressive' governents in the 'third' world.

I thought about taking this private with you initially, but didn't because it was tangentially related to matters of state resistance, at least in terms of how I see the the role that the state fills. I.e. why people cling to it so passionately. But, as may have been predicted.. we've entirely derailed.
