This "Democracy vs. Tyranny" is Western ethnocentrism. The Spartans were the most militaristic fascists in history. The Athenians were murderous to the conquered. Look up the history of the Peloponessian Wars to see how the Athenians treated the people they conquered, e.g. Melos. The Persian Empire was actually more lenient in its treatment of the conquered compared to empires before. They allowed limited self-rule for example. Apart from racism, one reason to continue promoting this mistaken stereotype is to demonize Iran, the inheritor of Persia. Athens and Melos...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melos_and_the_Peloponnesian_War

Why are there so many people who are lonely?
Krish55 comments on Jul 26, 2018:
Simple Suggestions: 1: Turn off the TV and the computer. 2: Invite some friends over for boardgames/storytelling/joke sharing. 3: Learn to sing/play and instrument & join a group for practice. 4: Learn to dance and throw a dance party. 5: Join a group that seeks to improve a situation you are concerned about. Basically entertain yourselves and act the way our great-grandparents did - with each other rather than with expensive technology. Meetup.com is a good tool for meeting real people with similar interests.
Why are there so many people who are lonely?

What do you think about the GDR?
Krish55 comments on Jul 24, 2018:
The GDR was founded by the communists who resisted Hitler and were his first victims. Some of them had fought in Spain against Franco. I like the music of Ernst Busch and Hans Eisler which expresses the revolutionary spirit of the 1930s. But why did communism become oppressive? Look at the specifics of the history... The Western capitalist countries, including the USA, invaded Russia to put down the revolution, thereby prolonging the civil war. When the US was winning WWII, it dropped the genocidal atomic bombs on Japanese civilians. This was a warning to the USSR. In Europe, the US created NATO, under the pretext of defending Western Europe. Having just experienced extermination in Hitler's camps and faced with an enemy capable of atomic genocide, it was inevitable that Eastern European communists would become oppressive to their citizens to defend their governments.

What's are you're thoughts on modern libertarianism vs democratic socialism
Krish55 comments on Jul 11, 2018:
Libertarianism ignores the injustices of history that have produced inequality. Injustices such as slavery, conquest, imperialism and dispossession. As a result, there is no level playing field. Libertarianism also ignores that for over 95% of human existence, we were social animals who lived communally. This is ingrained in our nature. Dog-eat-dog competitiveness leads to alienation, crime, suicide, and violent aggression. Unrestricted Capitalism is also destroying the planet… The market cannot prevent that. Only social decision making can!

@Matias You believe you have nothing in common with many other human beings (Your response to me below)? You are incorrect and the claim displays alienaton from humanity. We all share the plight of the planet and need solutions that work for all. This alienated GRAND THEORIZING PHILOSOPHY is merely an excuse to be selfish and deny your responsibility. As a German, you are responsible for NATO and its leader, the USA, destroying Iraq, Syria, and Libya - thereby creating the current refugee problem, You are not some aloof GREAT WHITE FATHER who is above it all and is being asked for sympathy. It was European industrialization that started the destruction of the planet. Many refugees are fleeing climate change or wars caused by climate change (e.g. Syria). You and I are both complicit in the problem. We are both beneficiaries of Western Imperialism and responsible for its destructive human and environmental consequences. Give up idle philosophizing that reinforces alienation and reclaim your humanity!
