see corporations poisoning the environment and recklessly contributing to global warming and pollution. Anyone pointed out that it was the capitalist west that gave birth to the environmentalist movement in the sixties and seventies, that it was the west in which it rose to prominence (Political re...

"Living being" encompasses animals, plants AND bacteria. I think we agree on that. I'd like to know your definition of "feeling" though. 'Feeling' is a process of information acquisition and analysis. To use the example 'Pain' - Pain is a process in which information you're rece...

but that the presence of a large anglophone population around the world has provided an extra market for films and TV in English. And that's where you're wrong since, if the market in countries that aren't anglophone is (Per capita) just as big and (In absolutes) even bigger, this suggests that whe...

So, chopping down a tree = killing a deer? Well, in both cases you kill a living, feeling being (Actually, quite a lot of them, but lets simplify) for personal gain. The story of life itself, tbh. Still, trees can 'regenerate' from their stump...animals cannot. Lose an arm, gone forever. Okay. You'...

Once we lost WW2 and fled to the back side of the moon, certain parts of the ideology received a major revamping. I'm a strong believer in darwinism, and keeping the ideology as it was after it very clearly failed really wouldn't have been bright at all.

I agree. By my definition of "feeling" they do not. That they react to stimulus is not enough to say they "feel". And the argument I have heard for "rights for microbes" is based on their response to stimulus. So, your definition of 'Feeling' is essentially 'Only if yo...

You don't appear to have any knowledge of film history at all. Germany in the early days of cinema was one of the major players and certainly didn't 'suck' at film making - in fact they produced some of the greatest films of all time. I'm deeply sorry. I was referring to contemporary cinema. This s...

No, it is completely correct. My camera can also detect light. Does your camera also react to it, moving towards or away from it, use it to determine its position in the world...?

Animal rights activists do not object to the killing of bacteria because bacteria are non sentient. Plants, bacteria, fungus, ect have no neurons and no neurons that are specialized to sensation thus they are fundamentally different from animals like us in an obvious and non arbitrary way.

So I take it you're not familiar with the concepts of 'Subtitling' and 'Dubbing'? I am beginning to wonder if you are familiar with the concept of common sense.

The spread of English wasn't the actual English's fault, it's the U.S. and their colonialism/intervention in South America and their economic superiority. If America spoke French, the world would speak French. If America spoke Zulu, the world would speak Zulu. Seems to me the British Empire might b...

The sack of Baghdad (I want to say 1256 AD?) by the Mongols ranks pretty high up there, too. The Muslim world may very well have stayed ahead of Christendom in terms of science and learning had the great library there not been burned to the ground. This seems unlikely. Islam had already been on a d...

It's not uncommon. So did Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Charles Taylor, Mussolini, Enver Pasha, etc. Pretty much everyone, really. Unless they enslaved them instead. The idea that 'Innocence' or 'Women' or 'Children' should be spared is as new as it is, historically speaking, abnormal. No neolith...

Modern sociological studies show that racism, xenophobia and other prejudices (like homophobia etc.) are not results of a natural albeit primitive reaction towards new, mis-understood, or opposed by concept to them. Racism can be prevented by educating people that they should not be afraid of other...
