you're right, I should accept that Slenderman exists as an entity to oppress whamen This is a stupid comparison. Your refusal to acknowledge that marriage exists primarily for the purpose of reproduction of capital, children, and social values, and that such a contract, when unregulated, would serv...

Can anyone point to significant numbers of polyamorists that have above replacement fertility? The Saudis. Polygyny can actually result in a higher fertility rate. Polyandry, on the other hand, tends to depress the fertility rate of a population. For obvious reasons. I was attempting to use polyamo...

So you admit that you can't. Good to know. Why do you even care about it? There's literally no reason to worry about it.

Didn't Biden pledge to abolish the hyde amendment in exchange for federal funding for elective abortions? I'm just saying, "The Lord will use him as a vessel for a properly Catholic public-policy agenda" would probably not be the best prophecy to make about a candidate who's getting denie...

Joe Biden is a Catholic, and despite his past mistakes and flaws, I sincerely believe that the Lord can use him as a vessel for a properly Catholic public-policy agenda. Towards this end, Trump has largely failed but Biden, Biden can be nudged. There is great potential in him. We can achieve univer...

Trump's making masks a political controversy was a response to his (increasingly conspiracy-obsessed)base. It was not something he decided from on high that his base subsequently embraced. Then he amplified it. Not much better. It's possible that red-state governors leaning on masks as a pillar of ...

Right. There likely wouldn’t have been much of a change There might be now though - the mask thing may not be political controversy had some crazy person on the east coast not made it one. It might just be a reasonable health thing. Trump's making masks a political controversy was a response to his...

1. Yes. I actually don’t think much would have changed in regards to COVID. While 130k wouldn’t have died we still would have had at least 90k die. And it would be worse in several states because the Republicans in those states would have refused to do literally anything to prevent the spread of CO...

They’d have better luck bringing up the command economies of antiquity, since they’re more likely to get that one right - command economy is probably not a good way to characterise antiquity economies.
