That's an unusual explanation. I don't really understand what he meant but perhaps it became clear in the book.

brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:
There is a fascinating section in Don Quixote where he goes down into the cave at Montesinos. It reads like an early expression of psychiatry, where the patient allows all their fears to be expressed in the hope of making sense of them. In Quixote's case, it gave him an insight into how far he had fallen into unreality.

When do I get paid?
So, I am curious.
brentan comments on Feb 28, 2019:
It's a really nice thing to be able to think in someone else's language. I'm Irish and have some knowledge of the Irish language. The same with Spanish and this might seem irrelevant, old English. I feel I can put myself a little bit in the shoes of some other people even though I'm separated geographically, culturally and even in time. Just a single example of the interesting things you find out about other people through their language. You can't break your arm in Spanish. To do that would be considered mad. Your arm* is* broken. That was on a Ted talk I watched recently.
The way I see it.
brentan comments on Feb 28, 2019:
It's a pity. It seems to be the nature of the social media beast. It encourages opinion but it really wants agreement. Being lukewarm about things is a fairly safe alternative. Obviously I have no idea what goes on in the background but I suspect there's where the damage is created. I was shocked when I was first told that some groups only want members who voice the same opinions. I never thought anyone would want an echo-chamber but I was very naive about it.. So many do. So I guess we'll have to accept that the ideological divides in the real world are just re-constituted here and there's no avoiding it. I suggest maybe not leaving the forum but hanging around to see what new people might bring.

Apparently the left hasn't decried racism enough to alleviate their white guilt.

brentan comments on Feb 27, 2019:
It's like breaking somebody's legs and then offering them crutches. I wonder is there a word for that kind of behaviour. The Germans are great for creating words for things like that.
There is no such thing as good people who fail to act, good people are the ones by definition who do...

brentan comments on Feb 27, 2019:
I've never seen repentance in my life, especially in the sense of teshuvah, so I'm very wary of this man's apparent efforts at redemption. Nonetheless, I would like to believe it.

Its the 21st century.
brentan comments on Feb 25, 2019:
I think hierarchies, like capitalism, bring the cream to the top. From what I've read, hierarchy is the natural order in society and as old as time. It's flaw is not its very existence but the excesses and tyrannies that humans bring to it. Efforts in the past to get rid of hierarchies have resulted in horrors worse than the crimes they set out to end so I think working to moderate hierarchy is the best approach.

The planet does not need more successful people.
brentan comments on Feb 24, 2019:
I agree. Successful people are mostly measured in economic terms. The recipients of their success are consumers. It's a good thing when it's not considered everything. The other people speak to our humanity and our quality of life in non-economic terms.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
*I love the way real art opens up doorways to other works and leads you to further literary/artistic exploration.* This is so true and I think it also points to a thread leading all the way back to the first expressions of what it is to be a human being.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
What was written in the paper would be economic bad news for any country as things stand but something needs to change to stop damaging the earth. Maybe some other group should write a paper showing what they think should be done or why things should stay as they are.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
My first album was James Taylor's Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon. The double=sleeve cover was really beautiful. My first 45 was Joe Cocker's version of You've Got A Friend. That caused an uproar in the house.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I think I've decided what makes me happy and every day is pretty much the same but quite pleasant. I could only suggest to people to find what they love and develop it. For me, it's most literature. For others, maybe sports, travel, helping others etc. There are a huge amount of people who cannot even aspire to loving anything because of their disadvantaged upbringing and I feel sure the only thing they can do to try to make life bearable is take drugs.

Who is Socialist?
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
The point, I think, is that no-one in the public eye in politics is suggesting socialism. Some promote social democracy, which is based on capitalism and wants to extend pre-existing social systems in America to close the immense gap between the haves and have-nots. Labelling these politicians as socialist is dishonest.
