In the UK we have Brexit, which is taking up an obscene amount of time and tax payers money, perhaps...
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
It could be the greatest load of bollocks in both countries. I've more empathy with Britain trying to keep the country British than America trying to keep the country WASP.

brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
In all fairness, goat-herders did not write the Old Testament scriptures. The scriptures were conceived and written by educated, pious people who wanted to project meaning into their lives at a time when they were living in exile around the 6th century BCE.
Endless war . . .
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
It's unreal how bad homelessness has become in first-world countries. I can only guess it's down to a widening gap between the upper and lower income groups.
Nina Simone- I wish I knew how it feels to be free (live 1976) [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
That's Nina who was so angry at the white race that she would insult the white portion of her audience at concerts. I think people understood and stayed to listen to her talent anyway.

brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I really enjoyed the sentiment in that song. Emily came across very strait-laced for someone whose family life was full of 'complications' as anyone else's. Here's another song about her written by Duke Special from a poem by Michael Longley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCztMBruLRY

It's a classic song but what the hell is it about? I loved The Last Waltz, especially Joni Mitchell singing Coyote.

Why is the hard-Left so conservative? - UnHerd
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
It might be because they've taken on the mantle of righteousness that used to belong to conservatives.
No idea whether Einstein actually said this, but interesting nonetheless
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I guess that means we can tell what kind of soul a person has by what kind of music they listen to.
I'm sure that we are all opposed to this:

brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I think the whole world should have a Global Kindness Day. It might be so surprisingly pleasant that new days could be added gradually.
What do you choose?
brentan comments on Feb 8, 2019:
I think seeking happiness directly is counter-productive, like desperately trying to go to sleep. Maybe we should choose to do things that make us happy as a result of those things. I'm not sure about getting happiness through thinking good things but it might work like meditation.
I fucking love her! Just because something is legal doesn't make it moral. [m.facebook.com]

brentan comments on Feb 7, 2019:
She'll be lambasted for this but it's just a suggestion and I think the world, not just America, needs to come up with something. Many Americans will likely think of it as a communist plot, like universal health care.

Q.E.D.
Consciousness... Can it be measured objectively?
brentan comments on Feb 7, 2019:
I read that it's the universe's way of recognising itself. I think religion was the only way to understand it for ages, then psychology and philosophy had a bash at it followed by physics. The latest efforts come from the old pagan animist thinking but they're calling it panpsychism now.

brentan comments on Feb 7, 2019:
I saw an example of the effort made to fully understand what a person of another opinion is saying. I know it's hardly complete empathy but it's a start in argument. It's called 'steelmanning' and it's an attempt to do the very opposite of strawmanning. Neither of you are allowed to continue the discussion without first relating back to the other person what they have said and get their approval. I saw it used to good effect when Douglas Murray asked Jordan Peterson and Sam Harris to do it in debate with each other.

7 key takeaways from the SOTU speech: 1. Immigration "Congress has 10 days left to pass a bill that will fund our government, protect our homeland and secure our very dangerous southern border." 2. 'Partisan' investigations "An economic miracle is taking place in the United States and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics or ridiculous partisan investigations." 3. Trade "To build on our incredible economic success, one priority is paramount - reversing decades of calamitous trade policies." 4. Infrastructure "Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America's crumbling infrastructure." 5. Healthcare "The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions." 6. Foreign Policy As we make progress in these negotiations (with Afghan groups), we will be able to reduce our troops' presence and focus on counter-terrorism and we will indeed focus on counter-terrorism. 7. Abortion "To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb."

brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
It's wishful thinking. Religion is about belief in god.

That's an attitude I'm seriously trying to avoid even though it's very likely to be true.

brentan comments on Feb 6, 2019:
They are happier because they have the benefits of a kind of tribal living. It is a huge support group that many secular people do not enjoy. Loneliness is a huge problem nowadays. The cost of such a life is total commitment to the beliefs and modus operandi of the faith.
