    Richard Cox, is 9/11 Deeply Spiritual? |428|

    Every time the pro-mainstream-narrative side in a debate about a (potential) elite conspiracy turns to ambiguous psychosocial dismissals of conspiracy analysts, in attempt to move the discussion away from solid, substantial evidence, you may tell that they have lost the debate yet would rather...

    Richard Cox, is 9/11 Deeply Spiritual? |428|

    The mistake you and TES are repeatedly keep making is that you interpret anything critical I, Steve, Laird, Michael etc. said to you as an attack on you personally. While others and I are criticisng the political, economic, social and cultural positions you support, not trying to attack your...

    Richard Cox, is 9/11 Deeply Spiritual? |428|

    Thanks for a reply, TES. Even if we stand in clear opposition to each other, I still can appreciate something in you - your sharp intellect, and your power of will that allowed you to survive through all of it. Respect to an opponent, even to an enemy in a battle, is exceedingly rare but a...

    Richard Cox, is 9/11 Deeply Spiritual? |428|

    I think, Laird, who lived in the South Africa during apartheid and witnessed its ugliness directly, have more experience of confronting large-scale, organised cruelty than most of us. And, TES, for you - I wanted to quote the post of yours to which Steve is replying, yet I can't, since it has...

    Richard Cox, is 9/11 Deeply Spiritual? |428|

    Eric, TES... you misinterpret any well-deserved criticism of the American Empire - that is, of the ruling class (elite, Establishment, whatever you call them) - as a sign of the "hate of America", which is misguided. The anti-imperialists here (including me) has nothing against hundreds of...

    Well, except all these Third World people who died and suffered in the countless proxy wars, regime changes and invasions that were widely practiced both by the USA and the USSR during the Cold War period. But, since all this violence was largely moved outside of the "civilised" regions and...

    The biggest problem is, David, is that no wall can stand forever - for the simple reason that it solves nothing, and only further enrages and embitters the people who are being imprisoned behind (as the Palestinians) or torn apart by (as the the Cold-War-era Germans) such a wall. So your hope...

    Trump Consciousness

    Craig Murray has something interesting to say concerning the recent Democrats' hollow, tragicomical, doomed-to-fail attempt to impeach Trump (I really don't know what to think about them now... Are they really THAT stupid?! Why can't they understand that they are shooting themselves in the leg...

    Alex Tsakiris and Tom Jump Debate Near Death Experience Sceicne |408|

    Probably it's a bit like speech, inner (thought) and outer (communication). Any child can learn it... but only if being surrounded by, and interacting with, older human beings who already speak.

    No matter, I'm leaving this thread. This debate is not going anywhere. As my last act here before leaving, I'll let you read this: https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/05/06/why-the-powerful-always-paint-their-side-as-the-victims/ See you on the other threads.

    Trump Consciousness

    Eric, Ethical Skeptic... you remind me of the hardcore Stalinists of Russia. When in need to explain how they justify Stalin's innumerable atrocities, they usually have 3 answers: 1) "It was not us who did it, it is all an enemy's slander!" (usually claimed by Stalinists about the Katyn...

    Trump Consciousness

    In fact, it is my growing up during the 1990s, combined with my inborn tendency to rebelliousness and liberty, that made me an anarchist. I loved the freedom that I experienced then, despite all the problems and dangers that accompanied it. Contrary to what is commonly thought, anarchism is no...

    Thanks for clarification, Laird, and sorry for this unintentional mischaracterisation - I should have just said that your position is definitely much closer to mine (and Steve's) than to Eric's. And when I describe myself as "Lib / Anarch Leftie", I also didn't mean some kind of dogmatic list...

    Well, I'm not American, I'm Russian who lives in a country that, despite all its recently renewed imperial(istic) ambitions, suffer from a very weak economy and have a notable part of its population living in abject poverty. Happily for me, I'm definitely not poor and can maintain a a decent...

    Well, both methods do work quite reliably in Russia, where I reside. Maybe it's different for the dwellers of the (supposedly free) West? :eek:
