I don't even employ a drummer or do any marching. I haven't done that since high school. emoticon

So why isn't it technically correct * to think your ideal government would be an authoritarian totalitarian system, provided it is was one in which you were PC, so part the authoritarian totalitarian elite ? -Geezess



I like the idea of a strong central government but not one that is authoritarian or totalitarian. The problem of trying to create a good government is one of the more difficult problems that humans have faced and obviously the results of their trying have been very mixed.

Our government was the result of such a try and while it hasn't been all bad it has generated a lot of trouble in both this country and the world. We would probably have been better off sticking with the government that essentially created this country. The supposedly more oppressive government of England. Not that it is in the best of shape now but over the years it has probably functioned at least as well as ours and in the countries that remained more under its control they have turned out fairly well. We see that Canada, Australia and New Zealand are pretty nice places compared to many of the other countries in the world.

"I also don't have any big problem with what I consider reasonable censorship " ?

Who gets to censor whom and what ?
 



Our government as well as others get to practice censorship including employers. We see that everyday. It's always just a question of whether their censorship is justified or not.

While I'm totally against capital punishment I occasionally agree with her other points of view.



Yes, I'm a feminist but it's not really a matter of loving drugs although I do not blame them for problems that humans create. Nor do I want to see people punished for choosing to use them, especially ones that are no worse than alcohol but which have a very bad reputation.

I also don't really love capital punishment. I just believe it is an effective, albeit unpleasant way to protect innocent people from murderers.

Including censorship ? -Geezess



Censorship is an indication of what cultures respect and care about protecting. I have no problem with the N word being censored as it is in this country. I just want to see the B word treated the same way and censored to the same extent.

Should women be disrespected more with a sexist epithet than black people are with a racist one? If so, why?

Censorship can make sense. It just depends on what is being censored.

"Censorship is an indication of what cultures respect and care about protecting."

Like what only the elite priestly class should be allowed to know for the protection of the elite priestly class's power ?

If I did not nail it, please explain otherwise with specific examples ... if you would not be betraying your loyalty to a class or other elite segment, not to the whole of society, my Grand Wizard.
