Aneristic Illusions / Re: Syria reported to have use Chemical Warfare
« on: August 08, 2014, 09:25:25 am »
I've been reading David Kilcullen's 'The Accidental Guerrilla' so find America injecting itself again especially eyebrow raising as he makes the argument there, mainly with regards to Al Qaeda, that a large part of the objective presently is not necessarily to defeat the West but to further gain the East by establishing fanatical cells within the territory of people who would just like to get on with their lives, then provoke the West into attacking and use this interference and military inconvenience to radicalise or at least partially mobilise the locals against the intruders, as the locals will side with the devil they know over American military interference, creating a much larger enemy than actually represents the movement.

Does ISIS employs a similar system? (I don't know, this may just be me stuck on what I'm reading at present, I'm yet to gain more than a shallow understanding of ISIS) It seems like moving in again with a very remote impersonal miltary presence seems likely to help such efforts, if they do.

What is our animal nature?

I thought that part of the nature of the human animal WAS culture. Can you define 'our animal nature'?

“I swear to fulfil, to the best of my ability and
judgement, this covenant:
I will do my utmost to behave in a manner that
prioritises the needs of customers. It my first duty
to provide an exemplary quality of service to my
customers and to exhibit a duty of care above and
beyond what is required by law.
I will apply myself to ensuring that the work that
I perform is in line with values that engender the
responsible creation of value. It is my duty to conduct
my business in an ethical manner and to ensure that
my actions impact positively on the wellbeing of
people both inside and outside my enterprise.
I will confront profligacy and impropriety wherever
I encounter it, for the conduct of bankers can have
dramatic consequence for society. 
I will remember that I remain a member of society,
with special obligations to the financial security and
wellbeing of my customers, their families and the
communities they reside in.
If I do not violate this oath, may I benefit from the
prosperity that comes from serving customers well.
May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions
of my calling and may I long experience the joy that
comes from supporting the needs of society.
This oath I make freely, and upon my honour.”
The Bankers’ Oath

I don't think anyone meant to seriously imply you were drunk.

Sorry if rolling with the "Go home, you're drunk" meme being invoked caused offense, though.

Lucifer, you are coming across as uncharacteristically lucid. Are you sick?

He last posted on EBG July 19 so he hadn't the singularity yet then.
