  • How can Americans claim they care?

    Americans don't care about the lives of other nations/races as long as their own people are saved. Millions of people of other nationalities can die but one of them can't die.

    Am a cognitive scientist. Curious to hear your opinion. Most of the researchers in my department that I work with are psychologists, that despise philosophical thinking and logical argumentation. They avoid abstraction and complex topics. I make my arguments simpler to their request after complaining it needs to be watered down, and then they proceed to say that I'm too simplistic or arrogant. My work requires lots of connections and deals with a difficult problem (consciousness), incorporating physics, mathematics, and philosophy. Mentioning concepts from such areas usually is met with disdain. How to communicate better?

    Best answer: I know, I'm 31 and I think it's really sad. I'm not that old, but I'm so glad I didn't grow up with all of this pressure. I mean, we had Myspace, but even that was pretty innocent lol. And it's all just pretty meaningless in reality. Everyone's perspective of what really matters is messed up. It's all for likes and kills any individual thought or creativity.

    Watch that episode of Black Mirror on Netflix. People are rated everywhere they go and you can see each other's ratings. This girl changes who she is entirely, so that she can be rated highly and be accepted by people she doesn't even care about, while her brother who has a low score but doesn't care, laughs at her and lives a stress-free social life.

    Best answer: "Thoughts on feminism?"

    Feminism is an ideology. A feminist is a person who adheres to the feminist ideology. Feminism says one thing in the dictionary that references equality. However the actions and statements made on behalf of feminism by prominent feminists in the movement contradict that definition widely. To the point of promoting man-hate.
    http://www.womenagainstmen.com/media/feminism-is-a-hate-group.html

    Now, speaking of definitions, even feminists themselves cannot seem to agree what "feminism" actually means. This is obvious to anybody who hangs around forums like these where you can see equality minded feminists defending the man-hating radical feminists just because they both call themselves feminists.

    If a truly equality minded woman is a feminist, but also a man-hating radical is a feminist too, then we should NOT hop onto a cause where it is possible to promote hate. Feminism lends itself to that possibility.

    We need equality. Not an a la carte, philosophy lifestyle where you can call yourself a feminist and believe whatever you like, including man-hate. This is feminism.

    they point there being, one should act and live morally today, 'cause Humans can never be sure when one's time is up.

    Since apparently it s not based on one s reproductive organs. According to you guys, there are more than two genders and apparently gender and sex are two different things and specifically it s your sex that is determined by your genitals and not your gender. Okay fair enough so gender and sex are two different things, but then what makes the basis for a gender? Since there s more than just male and female, what determines if you are a male or female and what is the basis for neither being a male nor a male?
