Total insanity. As though you could compel a persons beliefs. Only true idiots think like that.

Re: Contemporary threats to free speech

Do you think the right to threaten should be protected? The right to threaten is the right of free speech, so of course it should be protected. There is not, and should never be, any right to carry out that threat. Except by the state - the state appropriates the right of violence to itself, on the...

Re: Sexual intercourse with other woman with the consent of wife

With or without consent of one's wife, sex outside marriage does not break the precepts as long as the sexual partner is not in the list of prohibited persons. That does not necessarily mean it is a skillful act. One can keep the 5 precepts yet live a very unskillful life. A person who is locked aw...

Re: The conspiracy to end all conspiracies

I actually heard a much better one: Chemtrails are actually produced by government planes secretly spraying science-dust into the atmosphere, onto which they will project a facsimile of an alien invasion , which will actually be a false-flag 'attack' , with the intention of scaring the populace of t...

Re: Americans will never give up their guns.

I see two main arguments presented in favour of Americans keeping their guns. - Protection (as a collective deterrent, and means to fight back) against government tyranny - Personal protection against attackers Most western democracies are able to protect themselves against "government tyranny" wit...

Re: Critiquing the life of Stephen Hawking

Could you give me some examples? I can recall only one. That is if I am not wrong that he said we can go back to the past. If I can recall he said that a broken glass will be automatically fixed when you go back to the past. Latter he changed his mind on this view. I believe he has both said that A...

Re: Americans will never give up their guns.

I know. If only those stupid, stupid people who live in the countryside and produce all the food, would just go away. Then we'd have MSNBC, CNN, The WaPo, and nothing to eat! Wouldn't that just be heaven on earth? We could eat the nonsense they print and show on screen, that'd show God Dam Trump! T...

Re: Americans will never give up their guns.

I think in a general sense this is true everywhere in the world. People in the countryside who aren't exposed to diverse cultures, ethnic groups, etc. develop a narrow way of looking at things. Their minds remain closed to new ideas. It's like they are trapped in a time warp. Again, this is a gener...

Unfortunately, some Sri Lankans never learn from the past mistakes.
There should be some invisible power behind this violence.
How is Sri Lankans repeating a similar thing what happened in Maynamar?
Perhaps there is a common factor.
