    Trump gets that the media are for entertainment, not facts

    Such a casual observation.
    So media outlets in the US are completely screwed? Is that what you're saying?
    Or is trump the ultimate postmodernist, just exploiting everything for what he can get out of it? Relativism serving his purpose?

    Surely lack of empathy is worse?

    Let's just say it depends. Circumstance is everything

    now a defining characteristic of both liberal and conservative

    look a bit closer, scepticism is your friend, credulity is not

    Massive advances were made in the 20th century in understanding our psychology but most of it never made it out of universities and books. To our general detriment vast swathes of humanity still cling to superstition. And funny thing, the societies that gave birth to most of it are now pulling themselves apart over money.

    Bugger missed the edit window.
    Eternal damnation or threats about what happens after death are only a tool used the living against others living, who they dont approve of for reasons known only to them.

    And who seek approval of their course of action in the eyes of others who think like them. And so it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Incels, Israel and SUV's there is no depth to which human stupidity will not sink.
    And as the saying goes there is no cure for stupidity.
    The only way out is a mea culpa after doing something really arseholic. And thats a thing of rare beauty nowadays.

    Incels and Foleau have one thing in common, young and male. It isnt a prerequisite for an arseholism but it seems to be an indicator of sorts. They're both as dumb as a hunk of metal with the ignition turned off.

    Israel picked up his stupidity in his Polynesian christian upbringing and hasnt given it any thought since he was 7 years old. But he plays a ball game for money, he's has no intellectual heft of any kind.

    FFS its not hard to figure out why an insecure desert tribe has prohibitions against anything that would limit their numbers. And a quick scan of history would have told him how it ended up being taught in his culture by palangi.
    As for incels make the celibacy voluntary and take up meditation, and I'll stop thinking of them as morons.
