A little liberalism is fine, since it allows for some personal freedom and an escape from the crushing social pressures of collectivism. But too much tends to result in societal decay and the eventual reduction of one's country to a glorified merchant republic; as is increasingly becoming the case ...

If this were a couple decades ago, nothing really. But as of now, it's... very liberal, to be blunt. Which, on its own, probably wouldn't be such a major problem if it weren't for the cultural decay that went along with it. Chiang kai-shek isn't very well-regarded by most of the country's youth, tr...

Ignoring Taiwan for the moment, I think you fundamentally misunderstand Chinese culture. It is naturally intensely communal and subject to authoritarianism. The government of the day using culture and religion as tools of social control is by no means unique to the CPC, and was used by emperors sin...

Maybe, maybe not. The only real alternative would have been the Kuomintang, and given the current state of Taiwan, I'm not inclined to say they'd have done much better. China has never done anything in half-measures, and the madness of the mid-20th century isn't dissimilar from actions taken during...

Eh, while the Cultural Revolution certainly uprooted and destroyed China's cultural framework, I think it's worth noting that this isn't the fault of Maoism alone. It's exceedingly rare for a country to embrace Communism if there aren't major problems with its prior system and substantial national ...

But isn't modern China`s nihilism and hedonism a result of the influence of Western Capitalism? Not really. It is the fruits of Marxism. Marxism is not nihilistic but is hyper materialistic. It creates rejects God/gods in favor of a belief in materialism (but with a religious like devotion). Of cou...

Isn't obliteration of the self considered one of the ultimate goals of Buddhism? No, when asked point blank, the Buddha refused to answer the question on whether or not there was a self. If obliteration of the self was an ultimate goal in Buddhism, it would have been quite easy for the Buddha to st...

All this tells me is that I'm the reincarnation of Ikki Kita. I already knew that. :P I'm sort of interested in hearing how other RWDT regulars would describe my philosophical/political outlook based on what they know of me, but perhaps I've been too ready to provide labels for myself for anyone to...

It's not fairly unique anymore because Christianity was hugely influential on all forms of Western philosophy that came after it, especially secular humanism. And now, as a result, those concepts are no longer intertwined (if they ever were) with Christianity. From an individual's perspective, sure...

Considering how the Church of England is probably the runner-up in this regard, you're really not one to judge. Admittedly we've been rocked by our own scandal in that area, but our hierarchy has dealt with it considerably more openly than our Roman counterparts. Up to the point that an almost cert...

You know, defending the Christian religion in an increasingly secular society would probably be a fair bit easier if the Roman Catholic Church wasn't busy giving the Christian faith a bad name by protecting a massive international paedophile ring for decades. Considering how the Church of England i...
