  1. The problem with his suggestion of loosening the...

    Whether or not its *murder* is sort of the point of contention, no?[/QUOTE]

    Right.
    Hence the two-way street. Whose hate speech gets banned? Those who incite infanticide or those who oppose it?

  2. Free Speech; But Only If It Doesn't Offend al-Baghdadi

    Yelling fire in a theater says that if they do not escape they will die. It forces a decision to be made on what is bad information; this is fundamentally different from people who are under no...
  3. SCOTUS, Sex and Race - A Bigot is a Bigot is a Bigot

    Bingo. The employer wouldn't have fired a woman for liking men. Therefore the sex of the employee is what made the difference.


    Drivel. Why on earth should lawyers give a hoot what common...
  4. I’ve never entertained criminal culpability. I...

    You are adroit at repeating this line of reasoning. But this line of reasoning has been addressed with several criticisms and objections. To these objections, you repeat your same reasoning. Engaging...
  5. I am familiar with the recognized notion of...

    Well, most of the time, validity is understood as the fact that the conclusion follows from the premises!

    This is also expressed by saying that if the premises are true, then the conclusion is...
  6. You are adroit at repeating this line of...

    Declaring war on another nation is putting the key in the ignition and sending an empty truck onto a busy freeway. Civilians will die. Of starvation and illness if not by direct violence, and there...
  7. Just imagine if this was an Iranian drone strike on a Western nation

    A war may take an innocent life by mistake, by human error. Engaging in a war is not necessarily a "willingness to murder innocent people" in any numbers. Your argument excludes a middle ground of...

  10. French company liable after employee dies during extra-marital sex with stranger on business trip

    On a business trip, no activity is "outside" of work.

    An employer shouldn't be able to send an employee on a business trip on the terms that "you're only on the clock during business hours." If an...
  11. A mistake does not render someone or an entity a...

    The appearance of impropriety is sufficient for a judgement of impropriety in most ethical situations. The fact is, a shitton of farmers got murdered. It doesn't matter if it was bad Intel or a bad...
  12. Mutual assumption of good health to travel isn’t...

    Mutual assumption of good health to travel isn’t supported by the reporting I have read or Bilby’s comments that I was addressing. If you have facts to the contrary, feel obliged to reference them.

  13. The Bible speaks the truth therefore God exists?

    No. The conclusion is a repeat of the premises. The meaning of the word "God" is irrelevant here. I might want the word "God" to mean "my brother Jean", and the Bible to be a catalogue of fishing...
  14. Opposition to this particular French law, and/or...

    French law says that, as his presence in that city was due to his employer requiring him to go there, they are liable. It doesn't make any distinction between different misadventures that could...
  15. I have my doubts the argument is valid. By...

    I'll give a straightforward application of it:



    It's seriously more complicated than usual, so please take all the time you need to answer the two questions.

    Question 1: Do you think that...
  16. Then why should anyone accept your mere opinion...

    I wasn't aware that I claimed this was anything other than an opinion. Obviously other people think differently, or exploitative labor wouldn't exist. You know before it was made illegal, plenty of...
  17. What exactly are you commenting upon? What is...

    Yeah, so? That disparity isn’t necessarily a feature of capitalism, i.e. an employer willing to negotiate with an applicant because his last name is Rockefeller the 5th, isn’t necessarily because of...
  18. You think, you think, you think, someone else may...

    What does that mean?[/QUOTE]

    I don't know what was unclear? I think the most fair way to determine a wage would be a negotiated agreement between two equally empowered parties. And indeed, this is...
  19. Proposed California "ethnic studies" curriculum to teach that capitalism is oppressive ...

    Marx wrote thousands of pages on this. You haven't read any of it, and have no intention of doing so, but you know that it's something vaguely threatening to your worldview so it has to be "dogmatic...
  20. Aren't you relying upon your own set of "made up"...

    Although the relative technical merits of expropriating investors incrementally versus wholesale are no doubt of considerable interest, enforcing conformity to the observance requirements of one of...

    They do not have their “entitlement” with wages?


    Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk[/QUOTE]

    No. They don't have an entitlement with "wages". "Wages" are the literal worst compromise available...
  22. I can understand why a business owner retains the...

    Because the workers create all the profits. The workers, in every real measure are the company.[/QUOTE]

    I can understand why a business owner retains the profit, AKA in Marxian circles, surplus...
  23. The workers are paid a wage for their labor. Why...

    Shit, I'm pretty much on the "extreme progressive" side of things, and not even I am anti-capitalist. I am merely also pro-labor and pro-regulation. A regulated market is not a free market; only the...
  24. Relevant language from the proposal. Sample...

    Relevant language from the proposal.

    Sample Theme #1: Systems of Power

    For example, a theme that can be covered in this type of Ethnic studies course is systems of power. Teachers can...
  25. Your argument suffers from the erroneous...

    The claims made by the appellees in Rucho v. Common Cause are based upon, in part, fairness. Well, it may be the case appellee's claims have fairness as their common denominator and ultimately could...
