There is just enough room to the left of George Washington, if her hair doesn't hide more than about a third of his face. Hopefully it won't have to wait for Chelsea to become Secretary of the Treasury.
Sounds like you have a closed case of confirmation bias. But so does most of America.
Particularly to that cherished part of America between Trinity Church on Broadway and the East River.
Its just part of the new social programming for Hillary.
said they would bet everything we've got on saving our financial and economic system from collapse.
It has created a historically unique kind of complacency that risk really doesn't exist any longer.
It would have been better if these bureaucrats and fat cats had been doing their jobs in regulation and risk management before the obscenities in real estate speculation grew so large as to nearly destroy us. So now, we're in a deflation trap like Japan, which 25 years ago made exactly the same set of mistakes in real estate speculation and never recovered.
There are globalists who believe intermarriage to eliminate ethnic distinctions is necessary.
But I remember growing up in my little whitebread town with all white kids in elementary school and junior high school. What I remember is lots of conflict for social standing, lots of gender bickering, lots of boys competing cruelly with each other for dominance.
I don't think the universal tribe idea gets rid of all the conflicts. It might help with some things, but there are also much simpler answers to lots of multi-cultural conflict.
Are you talking about the highly evolved societies in Africa and New Guinea ?
Caitlin Jenner ... Those sorts of jokes are funnier when they're literate :)
dec2012, its really hard not to see much of religion reflecting human fears more than divine inspiration.
You have a much higher opinion and hope for humanity in the near term than I do. Given another half million years without self destruction of the species, maybe we'll have this conversation again as a molecular accident and I can agree with you.
Sexual arousal is not a cerebral exercise of the will. We're hardwired to sexually respond to visual stimulus.
You have the freedom to leave unsealed cans of gasoline in your garage, and to light matches at night to see your way to put out the trash, but you also accept the consequences of reality.
I'm all for lots more female nipples out and about. We can put political correctness on steroids to take care of the increase in rapes. Lets make the transition as we're upping indiscretionary muslim immigration
Pud, I see that as an example of taking 'scientific thinking' to an impractical excess. People don't 'scale well', they start destroying themselves in endless conflicts. You're dealing with a world that has the average IQ of near idiots.
The terminal pathology exposed. Our debt pyramid can't be corrected with organic socioeconomic change, it can only be eliminated with the chicanery of induced inflation.
I see nationalism as the next higher political unit above tribalism. It is based on the idea of strength in numbers, of banding together for defense against invaders who share no cultural similarities. That's how it arose anyway, imo.
I think you use the word 'tribe' in your own fairly unique and specific 'modern' definition. Tribes as really important units reflected the low population of the world in ancient times, and sparse population centers.
Whether there is a God or not is not central to the argument of nationalism itself, imo. If there is an idea of a shared deity, it probably strengthens the underlying set of reasons the nation is bound to itself.
But imo, cultural identity is stronger overall, and it has geographic and racial components. Do you notice the obvious appearance similarities between many people who decide to marry each other. Identity is identity.
If you reject nationalism, I argue you are just left with smaller political units, tribes, and the same set of ethnic slurs. If you want some structure larger than nationalism, I don't think it gets around ethnicity or class or wealth inequality or intelligence or culture either. Why redefine humans, they are what they are.
I don't see nationalism as a bad thing at all. It is a geographic boundary for a legal system, a cultural identity, an economic and social agreement of rules of engagement.
It is only torn apart by radical multi-culturalists, invading empires, and political corruption.
