I will have to look into it. Thanks for the links.

Okay. I just visited the Alhambra in Spain, and it was quite beautiful. And when the Christians conquered it and placed their own structure inside of it, which clashed with the aesthetic, I found it an ugly addition.

Lol okay. You might say the same thing about Christianity. Every major religion (except maybe Buddhism) seeks to convert others, often at the point of a sword. That doesn't mean I can't appreciate a beautiful mosque or cathedral.

Religions can't be reduced to being aesthetic. But to deny that they have a very significant aesthetic component is just inaccurate. Everything has an aesthetic component because aesthetics is one of the dimensions of our being.

Okay...but clearly they are some of the highest expressions of the world's two most popular religions.

I'm listening to Ep 159 right now, thank you for this! This encapsulates a lot of the reservations I have about certain tendencies on the hard left, and helps me see beyond some of my own misanthropic tendencies.

Twitter is not humanity. It's a death cult. Check this out:

Is it possible that the victims were real, but they wanted to get a good picture for PR reasons and thus "staged' the scene for maximum emotional appeal? There's a whole spectrum of possibilities between it being 100% real or 100% fake.

Yeah, cathedrals and mosques, totally not aesthetic at all.

What's the name for that feeling where, all of a sudden, you realise how much you disagree w & are unimpressed by someone you used to respect, & now you wonder if they've changed or you've been oblivious to it the whole time? I've been feeling it a lot lately & it feels terrible

Absolutely. I think its actually cruel to young men to lie to them and say masculinity is some social construct, when it is very real and biologically important to your attractiveness.

I feel sorry for her. What she did was very brave, but she's been lied to. There are objective beauty standards. We need to stop lying to women with this "beautiful at every size" nonsense. You are happier, healthier, more attractive at the weight you're meant to be. Same for men

The Right needs to understand that rewards for wealth creation are not distributed equally under capitalism. Jeff Bezos earns the whole yearly salary of an Amazon worker in 6 minutes. There is literally no way anyone is that productive by themselves.

Dave Rubin would be happy if we all just shut up and allowed the 1% to rule everything behind the scenes like they did before.

It is discontent with liberalism which has generated extreme ideologies on left and right. There is no simple "return to liberalism" which makes its contradictions disappear.

Communism on Twitter is a personal identity, another kind of identity politics. It has nothing to do with the communism of Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, or Mao. Add another letter to the acronym. LGBTQC

Yes, youth is definitely the time to change people and make a difference on future generations. I've found that most people get really cemented in their attitudes after age 25 or so.

I can see that, how it can be really meaningful for some people. I had a lot of great teachers growing up. I just find interacting with people all day to be very taxing, I prefer staring at a computer screen lol. I may be on the autism spectrum.
