Religion. Faith. These are two words that annoy me.

Yes, it's possible to use one or both of these, in moderation, and still remain a cool, objective, self-aware, critical thinker.
 

you mean there are words things that don't annoy you?
 :lol:

titties and beer and ... yeah, that's about it.

It seems to me that this may be a pattern. Certainly some societies existed where religion was a minor or inconsequential aspect of society, The city states in Italy, particularly Venice basically kicked the Church out and focused instead on money, trade and having a good time. Well, until the plague showed up... then they went running back into the arms of the Church who could blame it on TEH EVILDOERS!

The trend may be something more permanent, it would be nice to see religion no longer control people, but perhaps simply be an added spice some people add to their lives. Unfortunately, I think that as soon as something very scary happens, I think people may find themselves looking for a Sky Daddy to save them. I hope not, but we're talking about a bunch of monkeys with serious hair loss problems.

THIS!

I too would like to think people are strong enough to face reality without superstitious fairy stories.

But I don't.

Religion isn't shrinking, it's just changing into forms we don't recognise. The cult of celebrity is fucking huge right now. It offers instant, here and now salvation by way of elevation to it's already fucking huge pantheon.

But it gets a lot less likely.

Religion and Faith are like crack cocaine and meth. It might be possible to use a little of these substances to no harmful effect but the fact is, a lot of people end up strung out on them, complete fucking mushbrains and, given that there are no real tangible benefits, I don't, personally, see the point of taking the risk.

Why fuck around with something as potentially brain damaging as religion? What exactly is the benefit that makes you think the risk is justified? What's so great about occasionally believing in the tooth fairy?

Don't bother answering that. I'm really not that interested. Just trying to clarify my position - that's what I wonder about.

If this recession is the real deal then nobody has to worry about a police state. They won't be able to afford it. Best advice is find the cash and buy up a couple of police departments of your own. These will be available at serious knock down prices, not the overinflated rates only the mafia could previously afford. Total immunity in even a single small region will create untold opportunities but make sure you seal it down tight. Competition will have to be executed as soon as they start sniffing around.

I don't often read highbrow stuff like Foucault and the like but if and when I do I always prefer if I've already considered at least the outline position by myself. Gives me a sense of accomplishment :D

The problem with all human systems is the "human" bit.

Put it this way - if there is a god and he did give us freewill then that fucker has a sense of humour after all. We all come out with a mind of our own. Actually that's not strictly true - we come out with a mind, but only a fraction of it is our own. The rest is biologically and socially programmed, open to exploitation and subject to change.

But we all have one each and that's (x-1)* too many for an economy or a government or even a fucking sewing circle to run efficiently.

*x being the given population of any society or economy or sewing circle.

change the font for a sans-serif one (arial, comic sans.. etc). Should be easier to read.

Biggest red flag for me:
Big Metal T's



I have been known to wear big metal T's from time to time. They are useful for putting faithfools at ease which helps facilitate the whole - looking terribly upset and or running away screaming - spectacle which, after all, is the sole reason their god put the fuckers on my planet in the first place.

:mittens:

2000 "Capitalism may not be perfect, but look at the collapces caused by communism"

2003 "The free market is bringing the greatest prosperity we have ever known

2006 "You can use greed to incentivise your workers"

2009 "Yes, well it was all the banks fault for taking our advice and following our system"

 :argh!:

This totally made me laugh. Given that capitalism appears to be in the death throes of it's own, inescapable, conclusion, suddenly all those assholes who screamed "capitalism is the best system we have" look as dumb and shortsighted as all those assholes who said "communism is the best system we have"

Bottom line - we don't have a workable solution. Simply being the most successful of a bunch of dumb ideas =/= workable  :lulz:
