Re: Politics / Current Affairs / Blog thread

Your news is wrong or you misread. Sorry, Pete, not to pick on quotationing your posts (!), but this one is great, because, I would proffer that all news can be read as wrong, which makes it such a fascinating exploit of the Politica. Although, there was (once) 'News in Briefs'.... but that's gone ...

Re: Politics / Current Affairs / Blog thread

Re the UK and Syria, I think this article is absolutely spot on. Monumentally depressed by UK politics at the minute. Every time I think it's sunk to a new low, it out-does itself. http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/danhodges/100233350/miliband-was-governed-by-narrow-political-interests-not-the-nati...

hello. 1. I haven't actually, though I am vaguely aware of the outlines / ideas. Never struck me as very interesting tbh. 2. Uh, well, that depends what the policy is. I mean, you could write that sentence with the word "social" swapped out for "defence", "health", "literacy", anything you like rea...

Questions Three

Frank, only if you've the time, I was wondering if you could answer my questions : ) (i checked the FAq first, without success...) 1. Have you read Thomas More's 'Utopia'? why (not)? 2. I know that interview snippets and printed words and such can appear out of sorts... but... in some of your commen...

Re: What song(s) do you love?

As a contrast to the what song do you hate thread thought i'd do this one. Just say what song you really love (Frank or not Frank) and why, simple :D For me its a song called the wild ones by suede or Disco 2000 by Pulp (I have a slight obsession with 90s Britpop). I only discovered them last year ...

Re: Twittergate - Nicki Minaj

Maybe you could take them all to court for cyber bullying? I am interested - out of the whole thing - did Nikci herself (himself?) ever mention it - or was it just the fans :?: i know it's not in response but saw this (Boing Boing thing below) yesterday, which may be (although i s'pose indirectly) ...

Re: Politics/Wembley

I think Penn Jillette talks about this really well in a video he did for Big Think. He basically is saying that people should stop using huge damning generalisations like "all *insert any political ideology* is evil" and instead explain why that ideology is wrong using open debate. He also believes...

Re: Once We Were Anarchists

I'll probably regret violating my long-standing policy of not sharing political thoughts on the Internet, but I really think a free market is a lot more conducive to self-actualization (if my memory of the concept it right) than a socialist one. I also don't see how individual fulfillment could be ...

Re: Once We Were Anarchists

Hi there. Answers to questions. 1. Yes, absolutely fine to use it, I think that's very cool. 2. Well. First of all, I feel like lyrics are there to be interpreted by whoever in any way they want. So read into it what you will, I actually find that pretty interesting. That said, for the record I thi...

Re: Politics / Current Affairs / Blog thread

I was just wondering... in light of recent events and deaths, what is the current state of Polemics (also, looking back at Clur's post on controversial comments/thought police) ? What I mean to ask is, whether people feel that in our use of post-(post?)modern theories and political correctness, is i...
