LenHazell53 comments on Sep 2, 2020:
Yes on every count. However it is not simply Trump's doing, it is the fruition of a long term plan that began with Reagan and Thatcher, a steadfast dripping of corrosive policies that took away rights, values, ethics, and re-branded empathy and concern as weakness, charity as theft and heroism as foolishness. Where the strong no longer protect the weak, they trample them as lesser, because strength no longer means fortitude of character, determination and fitness in mind and body, it means the power of cash, the will hate and a form of fear filled pragmatic paranoia against those who MUST NOT be trusted! Who are they? The kind, the compassionate, the altruistic, the generous, the poor, in short the WEAK and the different. Even those who call themselves left wing or liberal have been changed. Motivated by anger and frustration in to abandoning their traditional ways in favour of "direct action" they submit to radicalisation. They rely on the thrusting forward of he or she with the loudest mouth in the hope of being heard, a policy that has backfired spectacularly, turning the left in to a lunatic fringe, a hoard of minutia obsessed busy bodies and nitpickers. People who in the eyes of "the common folk" are a more terrifying threat to "normal life" than the covert fascism of the right. So why facilitate the rise to power of utter morons like Trump and Boris? Well for exactly that reason, they are morons, uncontrollable but highly dangerous. They were aimed like guns and fired in to the heart of democracy in the sure and certain hope that they would kill it dead. Who will ever trust a system again that could deliver men like this in to high office? "It will have to go," the survivors will say. "We cannot take that risk again!" Moreover, the Conservatives of the UK and the Republicans of the USA will, tut, sigh, and say "reluctantly"- "Quite so, these terrible men were tragic anomalies, but they did not represent REAL right wing politics, only we can deliver that, only we can save OUR society. Put us in charge indefinitely and we shall put things right, and after we do we will usher in a new form of safe reliable governance, "eventually" and we will all live happily ever after, for ever and ever amen." Make no mistake, western society as we know it is already dead, it is a chicken running about with it's head cut off, ready for the plucking and roasting. Who we allow to do that and how badly we get burned is the main worry for the future

Modern religion is as guilty of this as ever, I cannot count the times when the religious have asked if I am mentally ill, because the existence of gawd is so obvious only a liar or a lunatic could dispute it. That is of course until you demand to see the evidence, at which point you either get the standard responses of "Just look around you" or "I'll pray for you" or else they get angry and start building a metaphorical bonfire for the blaspheming heretic.

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 1, 2020:
It is simple fear. If the religious (fanatics of any faith or denomination) admit to an over reaction, or leave a "blasphemy" unpunished then they have as much as admitted that they have allowed themselves to be fooled in to a life time of servitude, worship, study and belief that is of no consequence to most of the rest of the world. They have denied themselves worldly pleasures for nothing, been obliged to part with large sums of money they could have put to better use, allowed themselves to be bullied in to relationships they did not want, and been persuaded to hate those they did not wish to hate. Therefore defense of the indefensible is there only option, discussion is worthless and foolish for they have no evidence or logical argument so they fall back on "if not by discussion, then by the sword" in order to feel justified at their total waste of a life.

Aliens; why should we "listen" for them? Have they ever visited us?
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 1, 2020:
Both Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawkins have expressed the idea that communication with extra terrestrial beings would probably end very badly for us. Especially id the the said AET's were anything like humans in temperament. We need look no further than the history of our own planet to see what happens when a technically more advance "civilization" comes in to contact with a more primitive one, almost inevitably conquest and exploitation, when they were lucky, extinction and extirpation when they were not. We have to consider what the motivation for contact and visitation would be? To make such a huge investment of time and technology, to say nothing of expense if they have the concept, there must be an expected reward or pay off. Be it land, minerals, alternate tech, slave labour, food or something beyond our ken, there is going to be an expected reward. If we can assume they are technologically savvy enough to have faster than light or interdimensional travel then we are going to have little to trade to them that they might actually want. We will probably be unable to fight back in the face of aggression, so chances are they will simply take what they need until there is nothing left. If by some chance they are benificent, can we expect compassion, we need to consider how we will be perceived, a dangerous, warlike, race of angry apes, who have knowingly poisoned out own air, land, sea and sky with toxic waste. A race of beings so arrogant that we have driven hundreds of other species resident here with us to extinction, a society who deliberately keeps 90% of our own species in servitude, poverty and want for the sake 10% who have so much of the planet under their control they cannot possibly use it all. If I were them I would give this world a wide berth until the monsters all consumed each others and the nicer rabbit people took over.

Are police disproportionally killing (unarmed) black men?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 31, 2020:
You are completely ignoring the context of the killings. In many cases the black person having been shot has been doing nothing more than driving a car, all be it one the policeman who killed them has judged to be too "nice" to be being driven by a black person and is therefore in a situation to be considered "suspicious". I have been myself stopped like this, but only when traveling in a car, or when walking the street with my friend and colleague Courtney, who I have known since the age of 12 and who was born on the Island on St. Vincent. Apparently a white man walking or driving with a black man needs to be checked upon, just in case he is under duress. White people shot and killed are usually already in the act of, or have been caught immediately after committing a criminal act far in excess of driving while in possession of a larger than expected amount of melanin

Question on Nietzsche
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 28, 2020:
My personal interpretation, and I emphasise this is MY interpretation, of the will to power is the defining characteristic of the Ubermensch, the force of the functioning mind to discover and then pursue the true meaning of one own life, to create and to contribute something new to the collective whole, to assert change. This contrasts with the mind of the herd human whose own will does not drive them to power, but to serve, to "borrow" the will of the Ubermensch and to act upon it and constuct the new to the pattern provided. The opposite of the will to power, the will to depower is the characteristic of the Letzter Mensch, the determination to half progress, to be reactionary, to regress the collective whole.
Men and manhood. “What’s up with this male-dominated world?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 28, 2020:
How did we get sexism, patriarchy, misogyny in the first place? For thousands of years, what today is called sexism was a societal norm and was born of nothing less than necessity. Men took on the roll of hunter in hunter gatherer society while women became the gatherers, because it did not endanger them or their children, as mothers and child bearers were far more important to tribal society survival than men and needed to be kept safe. The Human male was stronger and so necessarily became the builder and protector and more often than not the victim of harsh life. Women were more likely to survive harsh winters as the female body is more resistant to heat and cold and also requires less nourishment and is a very efficient procreater, capable often of producing off spring for her entire (then) adult life. All of this lead to accepted gender roles for the good of the family and the tribe. However as we moved to a more agrarian society, women and men had a far more equal roll to play, on a farm based life a woman could utilise animal power and tools just as well as men and did so. Many records exist of women running farms after the death of the husband in the middle ages. It is around this time that the unease begins to set in with tools making women more ambitious and the churches begining to fear for their easy meal ticket, if a woman can run a farm, she can certainly preach a sermon. Only need look at Chaucer to see the men and women of the pilgrimage were equal. Common laws existed for the protection of women, the so called "rough music" for public humiliation and punishment of spouse beaters and abusers, was applied equally to men and women. Religion's blaming of Eve for he sins of the world, and the extirpation of the old godess' of nature began the decline of these equal but accepted and different gender roles, as the church began to promote the idea that men somehow outranked women. but in every day life they pretty much continued as equal partners until the industrial revolution. By the 16th century things began to turn sexist, after the religious chaos cause by the likes of the Tudors was blamed firmly on women by the Catholic church, with Elizabeth and Mary being held up as examples of the dangers posed by "modern" womanhood, and the theatrical media of the day being encouraged to mock women, especially clever women as the root of all trouble. Modern sexism as we recognize it today is a very new phenomenon mostly coming out of the Victorian age, but massively exacerbated after the end of WW1. with he myth of the returning heroes, encourage the exaltation of men and a return to to a mythical golden age that never actually existed.

Question on Ayn Rand...
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 28, 2020:
Rand was a realist in denial, vainly trying to combine pragmatism, hedonism and idealism in to a system that explained her own own life experience but hampered by being a product of her times and prejudices.. As a philosopher she was a great speculative novelist. Her major achievement was Ellsworth Toohey one of the greatest literary villains of all time.

I’ve realized I can’t change my religious wife.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 27, 2020:
I guess I was lucky, when I left the LDS I feared it would end my marriage. However my wife loved me enough to ask why I felt I had to leave and when I told her she looked in to my reasons with an open mind and decided that I was justified, she followed me out of the church a couple of months later. I think it came down to her loving me more than the church and so trusting me to have a good reason, she then took her own time to do some serious research and then decided I was right. She was also wise enough to know it was a pointless exercise to try and bully someone in to pretending to believe something they don't. Our relationship is all the better for religion being out of our lives and we are fast approaching our Pearl wedding anniversary.

Muslim ICE detainees forced to choose between expired meals or eating pork - CNNPolitics
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 24, 2020:
Another case of religious people not knowing their own scriptures. According to the Quran in times of captivity, crisis, starvation or disease it is perfectly permissible to eat pork if forced or left with no other choice than to do so. However that aside, all Vegetables, Fruits, Grains, Egg, and Dairy are Halal, so they need not eat the proffered pork or spoiled Halah meat but can switch to a vegetarian diet for as long as needs be. Growing up my best friend was a Muslim and to be honest he, his father, and his five brothers never missed a chance to say they had no choice but to eat a bacon sandwich given the opportunity.

Another Question on Nietzsche
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 24, 2020:
'Master morality' is the moral code practiced by The Übermensch. This means basing you moral code on your duty to contribute to the greater good of society by practicing a greater degree of individuality, leadership or supervisory skills such as planning, teaching, training, creating and innovating. "Slave morality" is seeing a greater value in conformity, contributing, cooperation and contributing to the greater good of society by serving as a part of a greater whole and taking pride in the achievement of the group rather than personal glory. An example is perhaps seen on a building site when the architect provides the pattern, the site project manager coordinates the the various skill sets and acquisition of raw material and so forth all showing "master morality" while the work force cooperating with one another, integrating their skill to produce a single or multiple tangible results as a joint effort are practicing "slave morality" Looked at in modern anthropological circumstances some have speculated that Master Morality is seen more in those with higher levels of Neanderthal DNA in their make up and slave morality is a feature of those with predominantly cro magnon ancestry. The two types complimenting one another for success sociologically.
What does it mean to be an Ubermensch according to Friedrich Nietzsche?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 24, 2020:
The Ubermensch as described by Nietzsche was not the Superman of today or the Perfect Aryan of Hitler's vision. The Nearest version in literature was the Pulp adventuring character Clarke "Doc" Savage. The Ubermensch is the person who has achieved their full potential as a human being, one who lives on an optimised scale, educated to the highest degree they are capable of, as fit as their physically allows, with a mind unhindered by social or religious programming, but driven by logic and reason, tempered by compassion. The Ubermensch therefore is not a thing it is an ideal to be striven for, and that those that who get closest to that ideal should be the natural leader of those happier and more productive in the environment of "the herd"

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 24, 2020:

It was her who allowed the Nazi's access to all of Nietzsche's unpublished work after his death, and personally presented them to Hitler. Thus allowing the corruption of his work and misrepresenting him as a pro-nationalist fascist for a time.

No We ***are*** all human and *should* treat each other as such Despite divisive social constructs such as race, religion, politics, wealth and class trying to fool us in believing otherwise by promises of privileged superiority.

Does anyone really care that there is no afterlife?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 22, 2020:
Lots of people care, I care because I sincerely hope there is no afterlife, because the whole idea of never ending aware existence is a fucking nightmare. If It turns out I am wrong and there is an afterlife, I will spend it trying to find a way to commit suicide.
Question for you all concerning the terms atheist and agnostic.

I have had this discussion so many times I am sick of it. I no longer care what people call themselves, if they will explain to me what they mean by the title they use I can tie that definition up to the word I use and think of them as that and assign an level of respect accordingly. Words and there definitions sadly no longer seem to matter to people, the English language maybe in the toilet, but I refuse to swim in the sewer trying to turn a pile of shit back in to three course meal.

It is easy to claim moral superiority, when you also personally claim the right to define and personify morality.

If I were the son, I would go to church, fart loudly at every opportunity, laugh raucously at every biblical or sermon nonsenses, and scream "cannibalism!!" during the eucharist. See if Mommy insisted I go again next week.

Mormon big fish stories are so full of shit. "the only place he was burned is where his magic underwear didn't cover." so basically everywhere important then?
I'm working on a case for demonstrating that all morality is ultimately subjective.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 21, 2020:
The vast majority of religious people, do not gain their moral objectivity from their religion, they simply ascribe it to their religion. Most have never read their holy books and know nothing about what is actually written in them. If you tell a Christian the bible contains advocation for slavery, misogyny, murder, child beating etc, they will say "Well not that bit obviously, just the good bits." But what are the good bits? The bits they agree with. Meaning ultimately Christians like everyone else are the ultimate arbiters of their own moral codes, only they have abnegated themselves from the responsibility of the same.
In fairness, if a society accepts religion, it should accept any organization that warps a child's ...

In fairness society needs to understand that it's fairy tales and its religions are far more alike than they are different.
