Patriot - Posting long posts from people who have been banned here is very suspect. I don't feel like being a repository for hateful crap such as this. This board is about discussion of issues. If you want to discuss things fne. Looks to me that you just want to stir up shit.Thread closed.
"death to womans's freedoms" amuses you?
Why would rephrasing it make the meaning behind it any different.Sure it sounds better, decoded into PC speak. The original meaning still stands yes?
Freedom is not a right, it's an illusory temptation..... Freedom is far too dangerous. In the name of freedom we supress freedom. It's too hard to control. 'Pretend' freedom is much better.

Robert Frost once said: "Freedom means being easy in the harness."Hands down, the best definition of 'freedom' I have ever heard!
Quote from: "Fidelbogen"Robert Frost once said: "Freedom means being easy in the harness."Hands down, the best definition of 'freedom' I have ever heard!This definition is too loose for me - a carte blanche for the nanny state.For me, freedom is absence of coercion.
Preaching "freedom" to idiots is just the thing I would do if I were ananny-state future builder. I would preach freedom (or hire someoneelse to do the preaching for me, more likely!) and wait for the predictableentropic outcome when the idiots got their taste of "freedom"...and started clamoring for more and more of it!Then I would clamp down with my nanny-state "harness" that wouldreally take away their "freedom"....and reduce them to the status of children. Which was my plan all along, of course....And all because those "idiots" were bereft of the wise philosophical adulthood to embrace their OWN harnesses voluntarily, and makethe necessary comfort adjustments. Being a wise philosophical adult, I can preach to myself. I don't needanyone preaching to me -- be it pulpit, parliament, or otherwise.Yep, coercion is the thing to avoid. Other than coercion from the universe and its various "laws". Nobody is lucky enough to escape THAT.
