Where does the power of Authority come from?
brentan comments on Mar 25, 2019:
I think it started off as authority given to charismatics leaders from a god. Then kings represented god and held his authority. It gets tricky when we get to democracy. I think in the West we still thought of human authority as somehow infused with the authority that came down through our Judeo-Christian culture. Now I think we realise they are all hard-necked impostors whose incompetency and immorality is getting clearer day by day.
I kind of miss the days when the internet wasn't so easily accessible.

brentan comments on Mar 24, 2019:
I think teachers should not promote their ideologies in class. But how can they avoid that if the ideologies are built into the curricula? Perhaps, at the very least, the teacher/student relationship should not be allowed to take to the streets.

How antivaxxers sound to the rest of us
brentan comments on Mar 24, 2019:
It's social responsibility, I think. My take on it in Ireland is: We don't have guns because even though guns can give us personal protection, if we have guns, more people will die. Guns can kill the people who buy them too. We don't believe in anti-vax because even though anti-vax can give you personal protection, if we stop vaccinations, more people will die. Not vaccinating can kill the people who though it would protect them.

Anyone else ever wonder what percentage of "religious" people are simply faking it to fit in?
brentan comments on Mar 23, 2019:
In the Jehovah's Witnesses, it's a way of life and not just a religion. Everything - family, work, friends is bound up in the faith so if you have any doubts, you are under real pressure to fake it.

Anti-Semitism and the Beirut Pogrom - Fredy Perlman
brentan comments on Mar 21, 2019:
I think the Jews after WW2, whether they would admit it or not, lost faith that their Jehovah God was real and that He would protect them. If so, it must have been a dreadful shock to the system. I can't help thinking they adopted the M.O. of the Nazis in Israel because that was the most effective force of repression they had experienced. If they believed in God and the covenant agreement between them and God, they would have to conclude that another Babylon exile was coming their way.

Why Jordan Peterson Is A Charlatan In His Own Words. - YouTube
brentan comments on Mar 20, 2019:
I must have watched and read everything Peterson has ever said. His detractors never portray him accurately. If you want to watch an accurate critique of the man, watch Contrapoints here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LqZdkkBDas&t=11s

Pepes are the people on altchan who used the Egyptian god as a symbol of the new dawn of civilisation. His advice to young men is to make themselves more useful citizens, not to wallow in self-pity and blame others. I believe his detractors are now claiming he (and Sam Harris) has some responsibility for the murders in NZ. The mind boggles.
