brentan comments on Apr 4, 2019:
I really don't know why there aren't many posts. I didn't even know until you mentioned it. A wild guess would be that so many of us have allied ourselves with ideologies, there aren't many freethinkers around. On top of that, the freethinker would probably find him or herself at odds with both sides of the ideological divide. We used to call that 'falling between two stools' but I don't hear the expression anymore.

brentan comments on Apr 4, 2019:
I use an Android TV box. It's very good except for live TV which can stream very badly at times. It cost the equivalent of about $200 (it's a Minix Neo 9) and that's it.
A Point of View: Is there still any point collecting books? [bbc.com]
brentan comments on Apr 4, 2019:
I like it because the books say something about me and what I value. It's a bit like T-shirts with messages on them, I think. I'm always conscious that I might suffer from tsundoku if I'm not careful.

brentan comments on Apr 3, 2019:
The poet William Blake is being recognised more in recent times for his description of God, not as a product of imagination, but imagination itself. While we have a brain that allows for both analysis and imagination, analysis seems to be looked on as the more valid of the two aspects. It is vital that we can project alternative scenarios (and 'die' in the unsuccessful scenarios instead of in real life, as Jordan Peterson puts it), analyse them and choose the best option, but the human mind is also intiuitive and holistic and this side is sadly very underrated these days.

When I was there, people were starting to come up from California in search of work. Now the city is inundated with tents and refuse. The politicians say the problem is homelessness. The people say the problem is drugs.

brentan comments on Mar 31, 2019:
I'm sure that must be a huge loss. Your situation brings home the argument that's raging nowadays about feelings versus free speech. I think free speech trumps feelings every time because even though individuals suffer from the free speech of others, society suffers if free speech is forbidden.

brentan comments on Mar 31, 2019:
They don't do it in Ireland anymore, at least not in the cities. I noticed it when I was in Spain and thought it was very weird. I wasn't really bothered by it because it's quaint and seems seriously bound up in their culture. I'm sure the fact that I was going home in a couple of weeks helped too.
Calm down, this is strictly for laughs. It is not a political statement.

There's power in numbers. You don't even have to be right. You can be 'democratically' right. All you need to do to justify behaving badly is to pretend you're the victim while you're being an ass. And then your buddies will back you up.
How can someone be agnostic and a believer both?
brentan comments on Mar 30, 2019:
I think it can be something just read or a change of mood. Technically, I guess you can't, unless you can be an inconsistent agnostic.
