    Seems like it's primarily a demographic problem to me. We're still living under the assumption of the old industrial model where you're going to reach your twenties and be paid 35 dollars/hour as...

    I don’t mean this to be in any way disrespectful but if you believe that your country is immune from this sort of degradation, you are very much mistaken. Sadly. Be forewarned.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, but the old lady didn't break the system.

    I am weary to the bottom of my soul with all of the crybaby lazy 'the system is broken' crappola. My own personal conspiracy theory is that the...

    I saw a meme on Twitter the other day that was funny, but true, paraphrasing:

    'If an old lady dying breaks your entire system, the system was already broken'

    The last election we had with major significance was when Trudeau ousted Harper. I didn't belabour the point, but made a few thoughtful posts on Facebook encouraging people to consider a few things....

    That pretty much nails it. If you drill down to biology we should see at least some of our population being completely and utterly self-interested without regard to logic. I don't know if racist is...

    Just had our first foray with a classic Italian tomato sauce from this cookbook.

    It's a very simple recipe that people were raving about in the book's reviews - 2 lbs of Tomatoes (skinned, but not...

    I finally tried Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms tonight in a stir-fry. I liked them but can definitely see why White Button and Portobello are standards - more of a meatier, firmer texture.

    I read the paper, and it seemed to me to be a lot of hand-waving.

    I'm no expert but yes it does seem that many people regularly enjoyed the spectacle. I don't think this is enough to warrant saying that many of them thought it was not wrong (for example it may have...

    I think that's a good way of putting it. The existence of moral sentiment is contingent on the species it applies to. I'd take it a step further and describe entire cultures as reductive to physical...

    OK. It sounds then like a convoluted way of describing a "needs of the many" philosophy of morality.

    Conformity is a behavior that is automatic and requires no thought or decision making...

    Determining if an action is moral requires examining it, not obedience to norms. You're conflating morality with conformity, which is pretty weird. How does this angle help clarify questions of...

    I think you start with a questionable premise that leads you down a wrong path. It does need to be "good at" something. It could just be "good for" something. Good moral behaviors are good for human...

    We haven't explored mushrooms much, but lately keep Portobello's on hand to quarter and steam with the vegetable du jour. This thread might be the inspiration I need to branch out.
