    Well, it's on a higher level than just one mosquito bite.

    I'll wait, but I have a feeling I'll be waiting for a while....
    And of course I want to read it! What's it about?

    Because. They're plagues. It's like saying you like mosquito bites.

    100%, you say? I've never seen mortality rates reach 100% before.

    I don't like plagues.

    Well, you're the one talking about getting rid of humans. I just assumed, since you didn't specify, that you were talking of all humans as a whole...unless you're some supernatural being higher than human....

    Hence, we would be gone. Get rid of ourselves?

    Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily? Yet humans still do it.

    Well, I never said anything about them being equivalent. It's like understanding and analyzing. One leads to another.

    And nearly any words can be related. They come from the same place. The human's mind.

    Wouldn't "less direct" be "more complicated" to understand?I think they go hand in hand.

    Yes, I do believe they would.

    I guess you're right. I mean, we don't think of sacrificing these days, yet we unconsciously do. I guess the way we believe has just gotten more complicated.

    But if you told the government that, they'd be appalled. I guess you have a point though. We shift our beliefs but they still have the same substance...in a way...

Did Boomers Cause Present Situation

by PeterL on 09-11-2019 at 12:40 PM
It doesn’t do much good to blame persons or groups for social changes, and that is certainly true in the present political climate. There are plenty of reasons why the political and economic landscapes became what they are now, and it partly happened during a period when boomers dominated to political and economic worlds, but it started and most of the damage was done earlier, and some of the present situation is just negative aspects of good things. Even the neo-NAZI aspects of Trump’s political

Struggle for Civil and Political Rights

by PeterL on 08-20-2019 at 01:59 PM
I have gotten the impression that American schools do not teach Civics very well. There seem to be U.S. citizens who think that the people should do what the government says, and that the Duty of Civil Disobedience is not a responsibility that Americans should take seriously. The matter of how citizens should act in a republic has a great deal formal philosophical literature behind it, and its origin go back before the origin of organized government. I could go back to Plato’s Republic and some

Eliminating Election Fraud

by PeterL on 08-06-2019 at 05:05 PM
Voter fraud has been common in some times and places, but it mostly went out of style many decades ago, Candidate fraud is perhaps even more popular now that it was in the past.
It used to be that politicians in the U.S.A. were some of the best people in the country, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, and so on. But that came to an end in the 1820’s and 1830’s, when people like Andy Jackson started doing well in elections. There had been a few populists and demagogues before that,

Automobile Era

by PeterL on 08-03-2019 at 04:12 PM
I just red an article from the New Yorker, "Was the Automotive Era a Terrible Mistake?" By Nathan Heller.
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...GSe6mI5KV2vtJk
I don't think the automobile era was a mistake, but that article was, for the most part. Private transportation has been around for as long as there are records; although at the beginning of that era shank's mare

Be Skeptical

by PeterL on 07-28-2019 at 03:16 PM
I just read an article about “The Psychology of Conspiracy Theories” (Karen M. Douglas, Robbie M. Sutton, and Aleksandra Cichocka), and I had been thinking about blogging on the philosophy and logic of conspiracy theories. The only place where I agree with this article is on this point” Our analysis suggests that conspiracy theories may satisfy some epistemic motives at the expense of others—for example, by shielding beliefs from uncertainty while being less likely to be accurate. The epistemic
