I can understand why you'd see some preacher in him, but rather i see it as masked insecurity.

I think hes just confused, whenever any point of his stance is poked, it crumbles, so yeah.


Mental scarring. Overload on wrists and fingers 'cause computer.

No biggie.  :fnord:

Boss: We need statistics of certain datas in an aesthetically pleasing manner, can you do this?
Johnny: Sure thing! Just give me the datas.
Boss: We dont have the datas.
Johnny: But i need the datas to make the statistics!
Boss: Can you not do this? Is there a problem?
Johnny: Ok, i will compile the datas and then do the statistics.
Boss: NO, your role is to make statistics not the datas!!!

A bit of exaggeration, but close enough.

Also, i think i like the notion of "compatibilism"  :lulz: Has that been broached in a certain thread?

Well, in an attempt to make an overview of statements and a response to them:

People saying "please" and "thank you" you are assuming it is done out of "obligation", therefore SHEEPLE (or whatever iteration or representation); now, your interpretation of a social phenomena is very much rigid, and its open for multiple interpretations: 1) people can be genuinely kind instead of being rampant assholes because they genuinely are nice people 2) i myself are very kind because not only is it a dignified way of treating your fellow humans, but its also practical, people are more willing to cooperate thru kindness than thru imperatives and demands. So your SHEEPLE reasoning goes out the window with those two reasons on why people are kind.

Friends are allies. Allies support and look out for each other - otherwise they are acquaintances or strangers. Or maybe you are a self-centered douche that gets favours and doesnt reciprocate.

I kind of get your idea of not doing favours out of self-interest, but calling it corrupt to me its a bit of a stretch. Doing a "free favour" can mean doing "the right or humane thing", sure. But doing a favour could also be within the context of friendship, in which, both look out for each other - theres certain reciprocation expected in an undeterminate frame scope with an undeterminate favour coming back.

You also have a certain solipsist thing goin on as in "I are the Determinator of mine reality" which seems an overcompensation or a cover up of a lack of power in your personal life. Friendship is a choice of two people, not your own to make (and sure, enemies are yours to choose).

Shouting really loudly "I AM FREE" doesn't make you any freer.

Well, you want to be bound, which is the opposite of being free anyhow, so there you go.  :fnord:

Being free is always a metaphor, because we are always bound to something.

Being free from the contraints of reality is called schizophrenia or psychosis, and is that true freedom or is it an avoidance?

Arguments are the confrontation of two diiferent givens and assumptions... so jumping at the opponents yugular prevents one from emphatizing and learning from their perspective... when i engage someone in an argument i WISH theyd provide reasons or evidence to why i am wrong...

Sadly, those reasons are poisoned by self interest or evasion from reality.  :roll:

OMG alien priviledge against my white privilege - FIGHT THE POWER!

I dont even dare type the magic words for fear of retribution, but LMNO once did a 30 day experiment. Not good.

This is too fucking good to not do SOMETHING with:

Obama, Putin, Crimea and the Ukraine.

"all these pot prophets have such thin skin" (paraphrased)

Every single person that i have heard complain about "X group has such thin skin" is always the most touchy narcissistic assholes ever, something along the phrase "cishet tears" "liberal tears" or similar cases.
