the embodied mind
also interesting stuff... Mind is more than just brain, a bigger step away from dualistic thought.

The Biggest Threat To Liberty is _____ (?)
I say a Lack of Education:
It was with more education we got out of the Stone Ages and into the Greco-Roman era...and then when education made a comeback, we had the Renaissance...and then the Englightenment...and then Civil Rights/Suffrage movements...cured diseases, more production...but currently my home state is 48th in education and the West is most of my doctors ARE from India...what's your take? Biggest threat is...what?

Probably not new game play idea, maybe for tourneys
Is there a tourney here that we could do a Triple vs Triple deal with a rogue Italy? I think if we have enough players that would be a fun thing to do. I think best would be 7 players or 49. Could be fun. Let me know if anyone is interested or has a way to make it a better idea.

Minor Car Trouble

The Top 10 Most Important Battles of All-Time
Pretty self-explanatory...if you want to try and rank your picks, bonus points.
I WILL give one caveat--all of my picks ARE slanted towards the West, that's just my bias...don't know enough Eastern Theatre battles to really include many, and those that do make my list are because the West drove back the East...so you can include Eastern battles--please do!--but I don't known them, so can't include them. Let the War of the Words begin! :)

Positive Rights Foolishness
Many foolish individuals in these forums post positive rights ideology.
What a worthless, destructive point of view.
Look at what it has done to Europe since the end of WWII.
God help us save American from this lunacy.

What is safe from Elizabeth Warren?

Elizabeth Warren recently declared that taking private property is justified by some alleged social contract and authorizes her and other politicians to do this taking in the name of this contract.

Of course you can only take from people who take what they are given and produce a surplus. What about the people who take what they are given and produce a loss/deficit.
Is Elisabeth Warren there to share in the loss/deficit?

Are my nose, eyes, kidneys, and other vital organs open game for Miss Warren as well? Communal property knows no bounds? Do we all get to share in Miss Warren's power if she is elected? Her office wasn't produced by her alone so we get our share?

The illogic of positive rights is exactly what makes it so easy to ridicule and expose as preposterous.

People who claim positive rights unwittingly say multitudes about themselves.
Individuals who claim a positive right to a benefit simultaneously admit their unwillingness or inability to provide this benefit through their own labor.

The only rights that an individual really needs.
Protection of property, due process of law, and sound money.
Individuals around the world thrive whenever these three themes come together.
When you go beyond these basic rights and start creating "false rights" that ignore personal responsibility you cause an irreversible decay of society, see Europe circa 2011.

The Failure of European Socialism
We are living in historic times. Right before our eyes the failed model of European socialism is collapsing. The only question is what will exist in its ruins? The senseless youth violence in England, and the self-pitying protests of you Frenchmen do not bode well for the continents decaying culture.
