Melancholic. :meh: That description is pretty much me to a T. *sigh* Except, perhaps, for the last part. I overthink about others and too often put their happiness before my own. I am slowly training myself to be more selfish and hedonistic, but not to the point where I am impacting other people's a...

Would you rather the Bosnians and Iraqi Kurds had been left to be exterminated? Not every US intervention has been a disaster.

A move towards global secularism and the whittling down of the power of religion in the political sphere. Then, emphasising the importance of individual rights (which I think would be a side effect of religion losing its power anyway).

Would killing him end the inevitability of heaven and hell and instead allow people to drift into non-existent oblivion when they die as materialists predict we do? If so, yes, I would kill that sanctimonious monster.

No, people have a right to decide their own government, be it democratic or not. I'd say that's a fairly good way to put it. But, if people choose to adopt (through democratic means) a system of governance that is non-democratic (monarchy, fascist etc), I'd say that there needs to be an apparatus i...

The Northern Alliance came as a result of the Taliban, and it was still a tribal thing. The Northern Alliance was mostly consistent of Tajiks, with some Turkmen and Uzbeks as well. The Taliban was mostly a Pashtun movement, and even most of the Taliban didn't really like them, only did it because t...

No, they're hateful terrorists. It's possible to fight against an aggressive or oppressive regime without resorting to the murder of civilians. The Iraqi Kurds of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan demonstrated this in their decades long fight against Saddam's Ba'athists.

Typically, a monotheistic deity is male because, historically, those who hold positions of power - God being the ultimate and absolute power - in post-Hebrew society are men. Still, it's redundant to try to assign a gender to an entity which we have no evidence to support the existence of. Even if t...

I prefer "black" because it's not country-specific, and it's quicker to say. That seems like one of the main reasons Morgan Freeman prefers to refer to himself as black rather than African-American: "I hate the phrase 'African American', because 'black' is beautiful. One syllable ver...

I wonder if that'll mean that liberal democracies can finally start properly addressing the problems we face from Islamist jihadism without being held back by the fear of 'persecuting' minorities.

It's all very grey and depends on how clones are treated. If they are stillborn and used to harvest organs, I think I'd find it disturbing but could see the merit in it. However, if a cloned person has been made sentient, they should get all the rights and protection that conventionally conceived pe...

I leave the seat up for the sake of transparency. Yes, it means the next lady who uses the toilet has to put the seat down herself, but it's also a fairly solid indicator that I haven't pissed all over the seat (in case some women haven't noticed, men don't have the best aim...).

Pre-quickening it's okay. Post-quickening it's hazy. Post-viability it'd be immoral if it wasn't due to some complication.
