    My feeling is that there will be more and more organizations like that, simply by virtue that there is more and more people on this planet and, by extension, more and more stupid people.

    You don't need a whole lot of thugs to start and enforce a local dictatorship.

    I'm often reminded of this quote from the Joni Mitchell song:

    which paraphrases Yeats:

    or Bertrand Russell:

    I agree, I think there will be more extremists from every side acting out in the near future. People feeling marginalized, put upon, ripped off, etc., etc., etc. Whatever their grievance or cause, the new extremists will be able to take advantage of a media and social networking system that spreads and inspires and involves people from all over the world.

    I'm not sure if it's stupidity, ignorance, narcissm or some combination that's growing.

    I am pretty sure that MTV is partly to blame.:thumb:

    All the more reason for people of intelligence and common sense to discuss things rationally and eschew the rhetoric. It just aggravates the morons.

    Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Cliven Bundy for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particulary glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a stupidity little seen in this day and age.


    - I changed it ever so slightly :naughty:

    How about in order to express any opinion in public and media,
    as well as occupying anything,
    one has to take an I.Q. Test and score 30 points higher than Steve Avery?

    Deal?

    I could explain, but we'd be breaking the rules and delving into politics. It's already a narrow edge we are walking. Maybe this link will help explain.

    You may think your discussion is rational and eschewing rhetoric, but I just find it aggravating...!

    cheers
