He is a hoot, both highly intelligent and humorous, despite that sniffle. I really enjoyed his recent discussion with Jordan Peterson, where he showed himself to be a less than enthusiastic Marxist.
Who needs a savior when we have science and Hitchens wisdom?
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2019:
The saviour was the person who offered eternal life to humanity, making life in this world meaningful. Now that most people suppose there is no existence after death, we have to find meaning enough in this life. Will people like Christopher Hitchens help people achieve this? I'm watching Jon Vervaeke's YT videos at the moment called Awakening from the Meaning Crisis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54l8_ewcOlY
What more is there to say? ✌❤

I hope this prompts investigation. It would be a very risky project but sales would be enormous if successful.

brentan comments on Aug 9, 2019:
I couldn't read it without disabling AdBlocker. I've always thought of it as either communist or Christian but maybe that's just being Eurocentric. Europeans seem to be comfortable with social democracy as a compromise between capitalism and socialism. It's not working so well now, what with mass immigration and the neoliberal market system. We've come a long way from the Keynesian model. They say it wouldn't work in today's economy but I don't know why.

I think we need to question the motivation of anyone wanting to be in the company of children. I don't mean assume they are badly motivated - just stop assuming they are well motivated.
Kinda buried the lead there.

"The Grail becomes that which is attained and realized by people who have lived their own lives.
brentan comments on Aug 7, 2019:
I read that the story originates in France and Saint Graal (Holy Grail) might have been a corruption of Sang Royal (Holy Blood). The blood was said to be the blood of Christ!

brentan comments on Aug 7, 2019:
It seems the further you got from Islam's political centre, the more moderate the religion would be. I got this from the book I'm reading now, Saharasia. I also read in it that the library of Alexandria was destroyed not one but twice - the second time by the Muslims. It's good to hear of book lovers everywhere. He was a great guy to organise such a huge and noble task.
A farmer walks into a hardware store and asks for a chainsaw that can cut down 6 trees in one hour.

That is my dream😉😅

It makes me think of Chris Rock's differentiation between a job and a career.
There is a surge of scientific denial in America.
brentan comments on Aug 7, 2019:
I think it will cause a seismic rift between the will of the authorities and the will of the people. If there was a real difference between the two parties, maybe the people could remove these dinosaurs from office. The birth of a new, third political party might help too but for reasons unknown to me, that has never happened.

brentan comments on Aug 6, 2019:
I guess we're not all philosophical about it. Lots of us are hurt and wrapped in layers of emotional protection. The discredited scientist Wilhelm Reich called the protection 'armour'. Armour always seems to work as not just defensive but leads to attack when it feels under threat.
And we wonder why we all hate each other... [democracynow.org]

brentan comments on Aug 6, 2019:
It's fascinating to hear the songs of freedom from Africa. I've been listening to Les Filles de Illeghadad too while reading a book called Saharasia about the history of abuse going back to the desertification of Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia since 4,500 B.C. I wish these people well and hope they can lose the abuses of their culture without losing everything.

If you left the USA, where would you go?

Best to stay put. There are problems everywhere but at least people understand their own.
Clearly, it's not racism, bigotry, or misogyny. There's only one thing it could be.
brentan comments on Aug 6, 2019:
It's not stupidity on Trump's part either. It's him telling the American people he doesn't their intelligence at all.

I'm enjoying listening to him. I'm putting the Google translation of Mon Frere in for anyone who would like to know. Perhaps you'll correct it where necessary: You, brother I never had Do you know if you had lived What we would have done together A year after me, you would be born So we would not be left Like friends who are alike We would have learned slang by heart I would have been your teacher At my truancy school On one day we would have learned If only then we have known Together the same first But you're not here Whose fault is it? Not to my father Not to my mother You could have singed that You brother I never had If you knew what I drank Of my sorrows alone If you had not let me down You would have finished my songs I would have taught you how to do it If life had behaved better She would have split in two The pairs…

Medium of music

I like to own things that I think say something about me so I pay up even though they can often be got free. These days, most of the music I hear is online - on this forum, Spotify, YouTube etc.
"And where are your restrooms?"

Oh the Politics in ameriKKKa...
brentan comments on Aug 5, 2019:
I think mental health has as big an influence on these shootings as video games - little to none. Blaming mental health is only going to discourage investigation into why people commit these atrocities.

That's that I told the judge I was going to get when I was in court for drunken driving. It must have made some impression on him because I got off with a warning.

How do you determine what is simple introversion vs. what is selfishness?
brentan comments on Aug 5, 2019:
If it's any help, I think selfishness is a kind of greed and narcissism is a character trait that manipulates other people to consistently get what the narcissist wants. We all want a bigger slice of cake sometimes but not everybody goes about it using the tactics of the narcissist.
Lugubrious - sad and mournful.

brentan comments on Aug 4, 2019:
It’s true for me. I carry the beauty of many Biblical ideas around in my head. Sayings like ‘if you could only obey my commandments, your peace would be as a river’ or ‘and now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love'. I understand the context has been removed for me but the underlying words of wisdom still ring true.
Chargesheet Against JNU Teachers Will Have a 'Chilling Effect on Free Speech'
brentan comments on Aug 4, 2019:
Maybe they have this old idea that education is to cultivate productive minds. I wonder should employees who work as tools of the state be allowed such leeway in how the tools should operate. If I was working on a machine, I wouldn't want my tools getting independent notions.
