The idea that a human can act outside personal Interest is a delusion

Beginner

We accommodate our morality to move with the vagaries of circumstance. The Idea that morals are constant are delusional. We make sense by pretending we are somehow good when in fact like any other animal we react to anything not unlike a slug might recoil against sunlight....

Atheist-Independent

I'm just looking for a quick little debate here, just so that I can get some outside perspective on the matter. The premise of this debate will be Transcendentalism is a sound philosophy that can be practiced in real life and can improve a persons quality of life.

"Fresh" (Samuel L Jackson) should have been NC-17, not R

Jellyfysh624

I believe context is what matters here. There was a lot of content that was too harsh for just even a hard R rating.

There is one violent scene that is extremely and viciously disturbing. Add to that the intense use of drugs and the graphic depiction of, all people, a 12-year-old selling drugs. You a...

Adam2isback

I am not suggesting that it should not have LED lighting, but rather that the actual luminaire itself not be replaced. A lot of the removal is outright politics who either have something against oldies or want something more to their liking at the expense of people living along the avenue.When these lights were made in the 80s and 90s along New York's streets that went under the els,...

I think it's an unfair pressure on companies started because Tipper Gore wanted to ban music that wasn't to her liking....
