    I know. At least I know most of it right now, being in advanced classes all my life. I can keep up easily. It's just I have to get used to less classes, longer time, adults and less rules. I have to make my own decisions every day now. I guess I am growing up now.

    I think. That if you can't let loose every once in a while without reading into things, and taking them as said, then my head would blow off. Too much thinking gives me a headache. :| And lately even just listening to the wealth of information I'm getting in college is wnough to make my head spin.

    Haha, but I guess you wouldn't be Peter if you didn't make everything complicated.

    You love to tease me, huh? Turn a very simple question into a philosophical debate. :P

    Think about what?

    And how has your life been going? Good? Bad? (Accodring to you, before you ask, "According to whom?")

    Don't you think being too exact is too much?

    How is your life? Geez, so specific.

    Do they have any critiquing groups on Lit-net?

    I have just learned how true that is.

    I guess with this issue, neither can win. You can analyse to comprehend a part you don't understand, but then, if you don't understand at all, how can you begin to analyze. I guess they go hand in hand.

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

Water Works

by PeterL on 07-14-2019 at 02:50 PM
Humans have been accused of having damaged the Earth in some ways, but the major alterations that humans have made to the Earth have been largely ignored, while trouble and noise has been put into climate, which is a perfectly natural thing, and while it is normal and natural for rivers to change courses, it isn’t natural for them to run on the high ground while a lower course is immediately available.

People have been altering rivers to suit them for more than six thousand years.
