It's all very well and good having a definition that says it's all just a heartwarming snuggly lovefest, and I'm sure in some cases it really is, but the fact is there's no law in most of the West preventing people from doing that anyway. It is already permitted. That's fine, because it's not parti...

Polyamory (from Greek πολύ poly, "many, several", and Latin amor, "love") is the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the informed consent of all partners involved. [1][2] It has been described as "consensual, ethical, and resp...

It does get annoying when the only sources people against polyamorous marriages are ones relating to Polygamy. Unrelated to say the least. Polygamy and Polyamory have differences. Society will not end if polyamory relationships are able to marry. And to use underage marriages as a way to say consen...

Guillotining people for having different political views is not my ideal of a society at all. In fact, it sounds like a dystopia. I disagree, I don’t think guillotining people for being conservative is an ideal society. If you disagree, feel free to debate It’s figurative. Right up until it isn't.

Any country we buy off could do the same. We need to get good at detecting spyware. Any other country is a competitor, and them spying on us is a problem. No, what we should be doing is handing total control of our security infrastructure over to the US like a good little lap dog. So you're saying ...

I never said it was the best, I have no real idea what the best system would look like. Any transaction has the potential to put people in debt, but UK student debt is forgiving in the extreme (and I fully agree with it being so) - only paid off after a certain income is reached, automatic so there...

I don't agree that the government should pay for it though. Honestly I think the current student loan system works rather better than it's given credit for in terms of getting people to pay for their university education while also not sending the bailiffs round to kick your dog and burn your house...

If a given university wants to admit someone who can't read, that's their own stupid choice. That person inevitably won't make it through the first semester, let alone graduate, so it's completely irrelevant to the question of whether there are too many people doing low-value degrees and negatively...

So it stops Scotland doing its usual nanny state thing, or at least it stops it doing more than England? This is a good thing. You mean actually helping people?

I'm merely suggesting that art is often not meant to be taken in the most literal possible sense. Humour and metaphor are but two of many different ways in which the meaning of a painting may differ from the exact image it depicts. They are the pantheon of your national myths. No they're not, I'm n...

Define 'the end'.

But the legacy of the people depicted by those statues - in their surviving incarnations an overwhelmingly positive legacy - is indeed far larger than the lives of the individuals themselves. You support destruction based solely on a lie you've cooked up to justify destruction; it's completely circ...
