Technically they only "suspended" me for a few days, but I've done nothing wrong, so there's no way I can continue there - they'll just "suspended" me again or ban me permanently.

Here's a description of libertarianism you don't hear every day:

Well it looks like he came here to preach, and suffered the fate of every other pastor.  His religion made less sense to me than most, if that's possible. At least Christianity thinks that their miracles only happened a few times. His demands that miracles happen every single day.

So I'm close to being banned there again, this time over the right of gay people to seek treatment if they so choose.

Quote from: Me
If some "gay" people want to change their habits with the help of modern psychiatry - fine.

If some "gay" people DON'T want to change their habits - fine.

It's a personal decision. Why the fuss?


Quote from: Darat, the Socialist Mod
Because there is no indication the therapies actually work would be a good starting point.


Quote from: Me
This is a complicated issue with a lot of intangible psychological aspects to it. Human culture isn't objective, it isn't supposed to be. Ever hear of the Placebo effect? Some people would pay good money for that, knowing exactly what they're getting.

Shouldn't the free market decide what works and what doesn't, not Generalissimo el Darato?


Quote from: Another Socialist
Oh, man. That is a complex, not-easily-reducible statement that is, de facto and a priori, not necessarily nor inherently true. In order to accept that, you have to consider a whole host of behavior/reward responses in the brain within the limbic system, and the not-very-well-understood higher brain center (namely pre-frontal cortex) "control" centers mitigating our impulses. That's like saying "it's a personal decision to be addicted to cigarettes."

"Choice" and "free will", in many cases, is an illusion we like to believe we have.


Quote from: Darat, the Socialist Mod
[Quoting my last post]

No, the facts should.


Quote from: Me
Name one dictator who claimed not to adhere to facts?

Self-interested individuals should get to decide what's factual, referring to whatever authorities they explicitly trust, not the violent thugs looking to maintain and expand their power!


Quote from: Darat, the Socialist Mod
As Admin - Alex Libman take your off-topic obsession to another thread. Thanks


Quote from: Me
No, you will have to ban me.


I guess he's thinking it over right now.  :lol:


EDIT: no, they've had a spin-off witch trial thread but didn't suspend / ban me.  Anyways, whenever the mods get in my way I like to put a forum on ice for a while.  So many forums to troll, so little time...  ;)

You know, a growing fraction of the world's problems comes from people with poor reading comprehension skills...  Take an English Literature class or something...  Read more...  Learn to understand poetic metaphores, read between the lines, and so on...  For fuck's sake, man, it's not like English is your 4th language!

(This applies both to Queen of the Harpies here and that The Atheist hypocrite on JREF, and others.)

I guess they weren't done with me on JREF.  This morning I find that they've deleted (or moved to a locked "recycle bin" of sorts) my older post on a "Win for Science Education in Texas!" thread.  To preserve it for Googlebots and posterity, I quote that post below, following my first post on that thread that they did not (yet) remove:

Quote from: Me
The problem is the herd mentality of "public education": one truth for all (even if it's false). Without government control of schools, people would be free to pursue the individual education solutions that suit them best.

You should get to decide how to educate your children, not a violent entity that's primarily concerned with retaining an strengthening its grip on power. Without educational freedom, all other freedoms are meaningless!


Quote from: Me
Quote from: BazBear
Violent entity? That's a bit extreme...but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. AFAIK people are free to send their children to non-public schools, home school them etc. I just worry your version of educational freedom might frequently equate to a freedom from education.

Only in a handful of countries are people free to send their children to a school that isn't directly run by the government, but is nonetheless under strict government control, and in even fewer countries do parents retain the right to home-school their children, and with a growing number of strings attached.

And of course this is highly discouraged, and the violent entity calling itself government forces you to pay for its over-priced brainwashing facilities (aka "public schools") even if you don't use or agree with them. For me it's no better than forcing a vegan to pay for a pig slaughterhouse (which of course the government also does).

And "freedom from education" is a right too, if certain individuals so choose, especially if the government gets to define what education is and isn't. In a free society there are natural incentives for a proper education to earn income, invest one's capital wisely, and function in a society where personal reputation is paramount.

Quote from: OMGturt1es
What's the point of requiring an education if we are just going to attend those schools that teach whatever it is that happens to make us feel all warm and cuddly? Seriously?

It's interesting that socialists make everything about atheism and racial equality, those being the only issues they were even vaguely on the right side of. It's like a high that you got once long ago and want to recapture again and again!

The full spectrum of human experience extends far beyond that. Public school as the federal thugs want it is nothing but "warm and cuddly" falsehoods, except honoring a different irrational religious system. The old God (aka Government-ordained deity) is dead, long live the new God (aka Government-officiated democracy)!

The Bible is nothing but a Machiavellian deception of old, and you're merely replacing it with its more modern equivalents. Instead of teaching that civilization originates from God (father, son, whatever), you teach that civilization originates from Government. The science has been updated so as not to crumble under obvious contradictions, but everything else is the same!

(Not that this rant is of any value, but still...)

"Hey, you can pee in your water-bowl anytime you voluntarily choose" means that deleting posts in his "hijack-free" threads (including my attempt to spam them with a senseless Gilbert Gottfried style rant, except this one copy he forgot) is his prerogative.  He's a known commodity, he doesn't claim to be a decent human being or anything like that.  It's his party, he can cry if he wants to.

"You watch yours and I'll watch mine" means something similar but along the lines of his capricious behavior isn't some unheard-of abomination that transcends space and time, anyone can start a "hijack free" thread and act like an asshole too.

Well, then that means that the mods at the JRRF forum can mod however they like, because it's their prerogative to mod how they like there.
