    Looks like the troll Romans1009 is as impressive and popular in this forum as he is in the spirituality forum.

    Dude, you can't rhyme thumbs with thumbs.

    Totally illegal.

    Six months from now he'll be skulking in the Clubs Forum.

They haven't started any new wars, their economic reforms - while certainly harmful to the economy - are ...[text shortened]... ortant decisions that were greatly detrimental to both the American people and those outside it.
    I have to agree. We in the States might be yet saved by the sheer ineptitude of this administration.

    Some of them complain that he stole the election and want to impeach him, but praise him for trying to engage in diplomacy.
    That shows that the Democrats are grown-ups doesn't it?

    Pity that Trump got diddly-squat from the talks though.
    (But he will claim all sorts ...)

    Just saying.
    Please, please, please.
    Look up what "ad hominem " means before using it!

    And... While I don't agree with it... Thst is the proper conclusion from the liberal starting point.

    The implications is that it isn't a pleasant conclusion but an honest one, and one that I appreciate because of ...[text shortened]... ndor at admitting a rather disadvantageous and "downer" sort of point.

    Ya dig my words mang?
    I am none the wiser.
    But thank you for your attempt at lucidity.

    The Filipinos elected strongman Duterte because life without security and without justice for drug dealers isn't worth living even if you have Muh Rights.
    Why don't you talk to someone who advocates this thing you call "Muh Rights"? There might be some on the Debates Forum, whatever they are exactly. How did you define them? Stupid people who speak like someone who never reads books, was that the gist of it?

    I see what the problem is, basically :

    Yiu refuse to have a deep, comprehensive view of the problem and only want to play with things on the surface.

    And if we ask you to go deeper, you refuse.

    And then you complain that I don't play your exact game on the surface of the issue and complain that I want to go deeper.

    please take off those eye patches
    How can you say great fair system when you get three different results for the same games played ?

    Do you find it meaningful to discuss issues only on the surface and ignore the greater question?

    Do you know other intellectuals who like to do that?

    Can you please name some philosophers that also take the "let's only discuss the superficial aspects of this" approach?

    I'm sorry, you'll have to excuse Muh behavior.

    I disagree. You talk like someone who has exposed himself to copious amounts of confirmation bias stuff and is completely cut off from people, from communities, from civil society, from how freedoms and rights work in the field in favour of people who are trying to build "a good society" and for whom those freedoms and rights can be a matter of life and death. You do not come across as "deep" in the slightest.

    So the thread reads "Happy Eid Congratulations."
    The thread title is in English and not Farsi. "Eid" means "celebration" and refers to the event itself and the word "Mubarak" means "blessed". So the English language thread title means something along the lines of Have a happy (and) blessed celebration.
