The needs of a rapacious ego.
brentan comments on Oct 28, 2018:
I thought maybe it was a way to lance a boil.
You may disagree, but I'm in full agreement.
brentan comments on Oct 28, 2018:
Yes, it's true but it doesn't give the context of why the people look likely to vote for him.

brentan comments on Oct 28, 2018:
I don't know for sure if the anger against Jews nowadays is because of their callous disregard for the lives of Palestinians or are we still dealing with the traditional view that the Jews own all the banks and have a plan to take over the world..

brentan comments on Oct 28, 2018:
The problem is how to work against something. The Antifa method is the current choice. The MLK/Ghandi method is probably more effective unless the world has changed so much that this method is not viable any more. My guess is it's still the most effective option, but in fairness, it wouldn't be me putting my life on the line.

What is going to happen after the midterm elections when the Dems take the house and senate?
brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
And what about the frustration of half the population if they don't? The main driving force seems to be the metoo movement but I'm not certain that is enough to win. Perhaps there is an undercurrent eager for change that is not being shown in the media but who knows! One side has to lose and how will they deal with it?

brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
I think the worst early Christians might have been accused of was passive-aggression. But Christian behaviour changed with the Emperor Constantine and has been quite murderous in proportion to its political power. I think you're quite right about Jesus being crucified by these people.

brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
I think you can do well interacting if you subscribe to a particular way of thinking, in other words, be part of a group think. I don't really like that because I think you end up unwilling to criticise any notion that any member of the group might come up with.

brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
The only way I can think one god might defer to another god is in Kabbalah, where the Jehovah god is a limited expression of the main god Ein Sof.

brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
I hate a lot of these new phrases. I think most of them come (no, don't) from porn. One that came from a recent rape trial in Ireland was 'spit roast'. It's really offensive to refer to a human being that way.

brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
I always thought they messed up Steven King stories. I loved his books because they frightened you more with how the person thought about what was going on than the actual event. The movies focused only on the horror (maybe they had no choice) but a lot got lost because of it.

Jazz is america's classical music.
brentan comments on Oct 27, 2018:
That's an interest viewpoint. I guess it's because America's culture (European-style) does not go back that far. There's a hoard of great music in both camps. There are groups for classical and folk. I haven't seen one for jazz.

brentan comments on Oct 26, 2018:
The problem is that we are the people who irritate the heck out of each other. None of us are qualified to determine another person's mental health. All our opinions are subjective bar a few like the laws of physics. I think it's true that there are a lot of people coming on board just to let off steam. It's best to ignore them, i think, but a lot of people are getting trigger-happy with the block button.

brentan comments on Oct 22, 2018:
Government assumes everything is based on the economy. Even the constitution is interpreted this way, in terms of the right to pursue happiness etc. The old view was expressed well in Marlowe's Faust: For, falling to a devilish exercise, And glutted now with learning’s golden gifts, He surfeits upon cursed necromancy; Nothing so sweet as magic is to him, Which he prefers before his chiefest bliss. The old bliss was man's greatest happiness that he had pleased the Lord and would live in Heaven. Faust had different ideas. But this isn't about religion. It's about how to be happy, and is economics the key to it. If it isn't, (and rich people are not good examples of happy people), what does it take and how should government work to help people attain it?
What's more inspirational than a Trump rally?
brentan comments on Oct 22, 2018:
Gott in Himmel, make America great again. Those Nazi rallies were very inspirational. For the participators, it's very emotional. Large group feeling is terrific, I remember it well at concerts. Sharing the passion. Sometimes it was almost religious, especially at Leonard Cohen's concerts.
Story time!
brentan comments on Oct 22, 2018:
I wonder what narrative we might create that is more suitable for today. This was the long and interesting debate held over four sessions between Sam Harris and Jordon Peterson in Vancouver, Dublin and London. It centred on the intrinsic values and differences between facts and values, with Harris drawing value from facts that can be drawn from science and Peterson from values that can be drawn from Biblical narratives.
Actually, this is pretty much how I live.
