I would be a little surprised if the phrase did escape my hypothetical partner's lips. If I take into consideration that in this scenario, my partner also happens to be a fellow resident in Southern California and would also probably be from my age group (late Millennial/early Gen Z), it would be es...

I mean, let's face it... If we ever come face to face with alien worlds, it is guaranteed we'll make our own racism and xenophobia look like a friendly neighborhood reunion by unleashing racism and xenophobia never seen before on said species. "In fealty to the God-Emperor (our undying lord) a...

I'm currently reading a full English-translated text version of Xunzi, which - if I had to sum it up - is essentially Thomas Hobbes' Leviathan except if Hobbes were a heterodox Confucian thinker from Chinese antiquity.

The Left Behind book? I was obsessed with those when I was younger. It wasn't a bad book. Anyways, I just started The Great Divorce by CS Lewis. Different strokes I guess. I think you have to be religious if not then some to appreciate them. Well, not just religious in general. You'd have to have b...

As soon as you admit any concept of human rights, you admit the concept of an universal morality. Otherwise you would be led to conclude, that if slavery has economic benefits it should be allowed, which is false. I don't follow your reasoning. Human rights exist because humans thought about them; ...

I get that academic jargon can sometimes sound (and be) jarring and overly intellectual, or worse intellectual for the sake of being intellectual (which is a cardinal sin committed by many modern philosophers) but I'm starting to grow a little tired of the "left-wing academic jargon, lol, amir...

The anti-comprehensivity paradigmatic transformations (en)gendered by the Focualdian discursive ascendency have long recontextualised and problemetised the hyperbinarised authenticity/parody cleavage, opening space for modes of creative disassembly and relocation emblematic of the neo-colonialist e...

Which leads usually to views similar to Stalinism. False. There are many different kinds of leftism. Of course, but there's an awful lot of non-Stalinist (hell, even overt anti-Stalinist) strands of leftism whose theory and praxis alike may inevitably lead back to Stalin-esque actions against who a...

Why would I seek an under-caste of drones? This is one of the ways in which I differ from Huxley's "utopia". While the removal of humanity's psychological/neurological tendencies toward cruelty and malevolence and egoism and such is an essential part of "re-engineering the human soul...

My ideal government would likely be a mildly-authoritarian technocratic state, which would support a social order in which altruism would be rewarded and radical selfishness punished.

I...I don't quite know, honestly. In a Canadian context, vaguely Conservative-leaning. Part-time Western supremacist. What, exactly, is wrong with laïcité ? Laïcité is, I would argue, a bit more openly hostile to religion. Not outright anti-theism per se, but one would be mistaken if they thought t...
