Government entering the Imperial War: Ktismandrasi had fascist-style government throughout the later 1930s and the Imperial War, based around ideas of national “self-sufficiency,” which emphasised low imports and a strong military, which could preserve Ktismandrasi indefinitely. A significant underl...

And the allowance of the LGBT people to live is an example of something coming from the sky? Or is that an example of challenge and evaluation? I am confused... 1. """""God""""" tells people to kill "practitioner" of LGBT, or apostasy, or ...

Would astronomy be a religion? It seems to come from the sky, I am powerless to challenge or evaluate it, and it certainly is indoctrinated into little children. I jest, especially in the middle bit, but what are you talking about, with things coming from the sky beyond evaluation and challenge? Mo...

I think that's interesting what you said in your second point., that religion being a "dictatorial commandment from the sky" or else, in that perhaps religion is just a reflection human nature's desire for some sort of higher authority. People dont really do well in chaos so most people n...

Not even that. Even a simple violation of personal space is sufficient to trigger self-defense. Keep in mind that in most such interactions with born people, a simple step back and a verbal rebuke would be sufficient to rectify any violations. Unfortunately, the only means to rectify an unwanted pr...

Perhaps I am reading too much into what you say, but 'self-defense' is protection of the self from any threat (significant, if you prefer, but my goal is not to nitpick whether or not childbirth is a 'significant' threat to life) of death? Consent here seems now to be the same issue, and the idea i...

Yes, I suppose this whole thing seems a bit silly. Precedent seems like a remarkably useful thing, but it also seems somewhat groundless and arbitrary, I imagine even contradictory as well? But I suppose we're lucky since we have precedent, and a lot of it, unlike those long before us. (I am taking...

Fluffy emotional appeals do get in the way. It does seem that if what you call right does in fact exist, and self-defense is indeed a right, then your logic is excellent and superior. May I inquire why you are convinced such a thing as a right exists? Precedent, primarily. But look at it from the o...

Could you elucidate this please? If the woman does not wish to have her body used without her consent, then it matters not one bit whether we treat the fetus as a person or not. It has no right to use the woman’s body against her will. She is fully justified in using potentially deadly force agains...

Foetus. Foetus.

And stopping something inhabiting one's body against one's will can fall under the purview of self defence.

Perhaps you could elucidate the bold part for me please?

‘I do not want to be pregnant’ essentially makes it self-defense.

Could you elucidate this please?
