>>#79509, About my free speech thing next week, there are a few different articles we have to read.
This is an excerpt from one:

Still, when offense becomes harm, when gender-based or racial epithets intimidate and silence and drive their Victims from the arena of academic freedom, then this discourse cannot be defended as free speech. Name-calling does not resemble or produce an open marketplace of ideas. Free play of ideas is not the same as a free-for-all of insults.

Freedom of speech is, and cannot be, an absolute right. That is an accepted fact, even among liberals.

I think you can try and distinguish between speech which can offend people with differing views and ad hominem attacks.

We can attack each others ideas and even beliefs without trying to degrade each other personally.

You think the e-mail scandal of Hillary Clinton will be the final nail in her coffin? I think it'll bite her in the ass in 2016 along with the Benghazi scandal and her comment about businesses. But i still think she's the strongest candidate in the Democratic party.
#79536 to #79525 - anon (03/06/2015) [-]
I haven't heard much about the e-mails. So I have no opinion.

But Benghazi is a text book example of a manufactroversy. Several investigations have turned up nothing.

Yeah, there's a political strategy in America called Fusionism where conservatives and libertarians set aside their differences to focus on things they agree on like gun rights and economic freedom.

"Fusionism is an American political term for the philosophical and political combination or "fusion" of traditionalist and social conservatism with political and economic right-libertarianism."

Aren't typical conservatives already supposed to want the "free market"?

They claim they want to, but if you look at their history (Reagan, Nixon, Bush) It's hard to imagine. Hell even Bill Clinton had more fiscally conservative policies.

The current generation of 'fake liberals' (SJW, feminazis, militant vegans, etc.) are practically reverse-Vulcans.

Vulcans eliminated emotion to think entirely with logic.

Fake liberals threw out logic to think entirely with emotion.
#79501 to #79495 - pebar (03/05/2015) [-]
Vulcans do not eliminate their emotions, they embrace logic to keep their emotions under control so that their emotions do not control them.   
   
Before the Vulcans turned to logic, they were a very brutish and uncivilized people. Surak turned them away from this and that is why he is heavily revered in Vulcan culture.

They do kind of seek to eliminate emotion entirely though, as most of them go through this mental conditioning that deconstructs emotional patterns with the end goal being to achieve a state without emotion. The conditioning being designed to counteract them being born with more emotion than people realize, as you've mentioned.
Not a lot of them end up actually removing emotions entirely though as the anon suggests, and like you suggest it ends up only being a containment on average, but some have actually been able to live in a state without emotion (also known as Kolinahar).

Someone buying a product they saw as an advertisement is the company planting an idea in the consumers mind, and forcing that person to buy something they otherwise wouldn't buy. Therefore it is mindfucking the consumer and is more accurately described as a "rape" of the mind.

A fairly well written survey, but I do think you should've added some more context on the characters and how their homosexuality was implemented in the storyline, or at least give context on characters in general. People who don't know about Will Truman (I personally didn't) may not know how to properly approach the question as to whether his character can be as strong and impacting as Walter White.
Which part of Newgrounds did you drop the survey in, by the way?

Do you think Sarah Palin was a significant factor in John McCain's loss?
User avatar #79359 to #79312 - Shiny (03/04/2015) [-]
She was a fucking moron and a terrible person, and John McCain is neither of these, so... probably. Yeah.

I don't know. Over here she was ridiculed a lot because she came across as stupid (I'm not saying she is for certain, I don't know). I'm not sure that was so much about her policies but more the way she said some things and some of the explanations she gave.

Is there an issue in the U.S. to having a female Vice President or President?
#79328 to #79317 - pebar (03/04/2015) [-]
The leftwing party candidate in the next presidential election will likely be a female. Chances are it will be used as a huge selling point the same way Obama being the first black president was a huge selling point during his election.

You know, you could just as well replace "sexist" with "deadbeat". Just saying.

I doubt a lot of the same people would who voted for Barack Obama would vote for someone like Allen West or Ben Carson. Similarly, I don't think someone who would vote for Hillary would vote for Palin or Bachmann.

elections always fall on the people in the middle, so those are the people the propaganda would be targeted towards

It might be. It seems strange to me because I haven't seen that being used as an issue in campaigns in Ireland or in the UK.

So, the whole Ukrainian truce 2: electric boogaloo seems to be holding for now. Think this is the end of it, or are we talking a trilogy here? And if it actually manages to hold, what comes next? new cold war averted, or is it just the start?

donetsk and luhansk have all the major infrastructure in ukraine. will turn into moldova 2.0, ukraine will be even poorer and novorossiya will get massive aid from russia. this whole conflict was almost like a replay from the 1992 - moldovan civil war.

Never heard about that before, sounds interesting and plausible.

I imagine it turning into a frozen conflict zone. Like most wars in the former Soviet Union.
User avatar #79299 to #79285 - Shiny (03/04/2015) [-]
I have my fingers crossed for a real life rendition of Metro 2033.
#79290 to #79285 - radiserne (03/04/2015) [-]
Yeah, it turning into a frozone is probably the most realistic scenario. On the other hand, I can't imagine EU/US would lift sanctions if that was to happen, forcing Russia to look for replacement trade partners, as they already are. Which means that a new cold war could possibly be much more global.
User avatar #79372 to #79290 - mixednuts (03/04/2015) [-]
Well the some EU leaders have talked about easing sanctions if Russia complies with a truce, the US will probably be more stubborn.

I'm not entirely sure it could lead to a new cold war. But relations between the US/EU and Russia will take a very long time to recover, especially as long as the conflict remains unsettled.

I hope they can negotiate. I hope they can agree a long term compromise.
