Before you go, would you mind giving us a specific number of days? I just want to know how long the party will last.
It was going to be for a few days but then I saw your friend Kirsten posting and I just HAD to return to post a little. Heheh. Unsurprisingly I recieved a lot of slurs, but no real responses.
Under certain extreme circumstances, yes. If humanity annhiliated itself in a nuclear war we would then have perpetual peace afterwards, because there would be no more humans to wage war on each other. Of course, that's not a desirable peace but it's still peace. That's one reason why I don't want peace at all costs.
Oh man, that's funny shit right there! Are you an anti-humanist? And do you consider that animals fight their own little battles every single day? Or I guess you'd say that skitish moose who keep an eye out on a continual basis are at peace despite the fact that they are being hunted by a pack of wolves. What is peace to you? An absence of humanity? That really does eat the cake right there.
But the animals will still be at war with one another!
Yes, they will. Because the animal kingdom shows great extents of hierarchy. Big animals with sharp teeth eat smaller animals with duller teeth, and so on.
Just like big states with big armies attack little states with no armies. And big corporations rape the small business guys. The comparasions are so obvious.
[quoteWhat, it's impossible to defend oneself aggressively?[/quote]
Oh, you can defend yourself aggressively, but then it goes from being an act of defense for the most part, to being an act of aggression, so it's a rather stupid way to defend yourself. That's the whole point of what I'm saying. If you're aggressive, then you get your just desserts. If you kill someone who poked you in the stomach because you had a stomach ache and it hurt, then you deserve to be beat down by their family members. If someone shoots at you and you shoot back and kill them, however, you have a much more reasonable position, and they might let it go. That's the difference between reasonable self defense and aggression. It's your choice to be aggressive, but I say that if you claim to be an anarchist but are still aggressive, it's your own damn fault your behaviors perpetuate the state.
What, it's impossible to be aggressive for the sake of being aggressive?
No, I mentioned sports, for example.
What, it's impossible to be aggressive on one's own individual self?
No, but the mindset is that "let's get together and do such and such to those people," but if we were to sit down and see what we could do on our own, we'd find that our aggression is totally insignificant.
Wars aren't fought by one guy going around being a fucking asshole, it takes a lot of them.
Y is getting as bad as Lucifrer now with the long winded posts.
Um, you guys are the ones making it complicated. I'm simply responding to each and every stupid comment that is being made. If you don't want me to respond to you, then I'm sorry, but stupidity irks me.
stopped reading Y's posts awhile ago...
lucy is at least entertaining...
Thanks for admitting it, that way when you start talking about how much you know me, I can point you in the direction of this thread, where you openly admit you've been ignoring my positions.
For a miniute I was actualy getting used to Y, and even though he pisses me off now and then, he was giving me a chance to debate.
I give everyone an opportunity to respond to me, and I generally respond to them. I do not try to make personal insults, because they're counterproductive, even though it does take a lot of strength to avoid the personality battles.
However, I find it offensive that somone would demand so much of my time to read these huge threads that are all about him defending his points.
Don't do it. I don't read other peoples threads, especially ones where two individuals are going at it in long winded posts. If you want, you can simply read the part where I address you. I address each individual for a reason you know.
If you expect me to spend longer then 5 miniutes reading your work, it had better be a well written highly educational essay about something that means something.
Everything I say means something, I do not write these huge essays using ridiculous words, I say it how I see it and that's that. Aggression is self perpetuating. That's all I'm saying. That's the crux of this discussion. If you don't think it is, then oh well, it's not that controverisal really.
He has an extreamly offensive personality for somone who is such an advocate of non-violence.
This is a fucking message board! I'm far more passive in real life, if I wasn't, I'd have a pulpit somewhere and go to protests and be a big loud mouth.
Personaly, I am nolt opposed to one Authoritarian group defending itself from another authritarian group. There is where me, and people like Y may differ.
Show me one authoritarian who isn't aggressive. I mean. Duh?
