What are some thing you believe that most people wouldn't agree with, or would possibly get upset about if you told them how you really feel about it?

It's not really a matter of what you think... The height of medieval people is well documented. It's not something that's hard to find out, you just measure skeletons.

Also, small doors actually don't cause the inconvenience you would assume. I used to live in a store house of an old(well not old relative to what we are talking about) farmhouse that had a very small door. In not long you forget it's even a thing.

Your opinion is one of the best I've read concerning this shit. I don't think many people realize how much inertia exists at the national level, and even though the federal government's power balance has deteriorated since the country's founding, it still retards drastic changes.

Age is irrelevant; that country was that of any other modern state since it is an offshoot of an existing European power. You're just grasping at straws.

Had Japan stayed out of WW2, the conversion of its people to Catholicism that was occurring in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (you know, the two cities that were ordered to be nuked, the success of which contributed to President Truman's promotion to the highest rank in Freemasonry) would have been undeterred. Perhaps Catholicism would have spread out of those towns and even further to more parts of the country.
Anyway, that is my prediction: had Japan stayed out, it would have been more Catholic in the end.
>> No. 969 [Edit]
People seem to forget that Japan was culturally genociding the Koreans and really killing others at the time.

Did you know that, ever since the US forced Japan to do Democracy, the Japanese have elected the Liberal Democratic Party 95% of the time?
That means the LDP has been in government ever since 1945, with only maybe two exceptions.

What ever the Americans had hoped Democracy would do, I don't think they achieved it.

The Liberal Party has been in power for most of the time in Australia as well, probably not 95% though. People like stability and for things to be the same, it part of the reason certain brand names and fast food are so popular even though they are often worse than their competition.

Apparently you yourself did not understand what I meant in my post, so I'll spell it out for you: I'm under no delusion of my self worth, I am among or indeed even am the most worthless of humans to ever live in history. Wow, holy shit, what a big fucking ego, that's definitely what I said or suggested in any way in the slightest in any of my posts. Because I hate normal people that must mean I think I'm better than them, right? Even though that's the metric by which I hate them? Bottom line is either kill me so I don't have to live in the same world as them or kill all of them.
>> No. 945 [Edit]

Yes, i didn't understand what you meant in your post, it had seemed as if you mockingly quoted my post when actually you were quoting yourself. We'll forget about those two posts and continue with the discussion. Still you did not understand my post about vanity which meant that all pursuits and interests are vanity. Throwing a ball around and thinking about philosophy are the same at the end of the day because both are vanity. What does it matter if someone is extraordinary or normal? Both of them will die in the end. Unless you have included yourself in the category of boring uninteresting people, which you have definitely implied you aren't in, then yes you do think you're better than other people. Your interests are no better than anyone elses because interest is subjective. If someone likes football trivia and talks to another person with the same interest, then that is an interesting conversation (relative to the participants), regardless of whether you are interested or not.
>> No. 946 [Edit]
>>945
There's nothing wrong with vanity. There's also other metrics to compare one interest to another, like how mentally strenuous it is, or how disconnected it is from reality. It seems like you're trying to make some nihilistic point about equality. I don't really buy it.
>> No. 950 [Edit]
>>945
>which meant that all pursuits and interests are vanity.
in the abstract yes, but it is the nature of groups that I in the group that hates football will also be seen as similarly dull and uninteresting by those who play football, the point ultimately is that from the point of view of those in the same group as me there is no purpose to interacting with a foreign and hostile group.
>What does it matter if someone is extraordinary or normal? Both of them will die in the end.
The purpose is self-determined, just as you determined to spend time making the post. All choices in this regard are objectively equal, I agree, but very little of human existence is governed by consideration of the objective.
>Both of them will die in the end. Unless you have included yourself in the category of boring uninteresting people, which you have definitely implied you aren't in
The point I meant to imply is that I am not in the category of people who are exciting and interesting to other people, which is to say that they are the opposite to me just as I am boring and uninteresting to them. Because they hate me I hate them, that's the crux of the matter, and I wouldn't have it any other way, I'd sooner die than be one of them.
>If someone likes football trivia and talks to another person with the same interest, then that is an interesting conversation (relative to the participants), regardless of whether you are interested or not.
Objectively, sure. Subjectively, I'd wish they'd die so they'd leave me alone.

I made a thread on a Christian forum for fun. I don't have any problem with them, it's just interesting, but you can see how anything you say to them rolls off like water on a leaf. They can't seem to accept human similarities with animals. They're really convinced we're the most important thing in the universe. It's like they're stuck in this little box. They know a lot about the bible and that's about it. I'm not "debating" them or anything. Why do you think people get stuck in these bubbles?

You're acting like an animal right now, whether you like it or not. In any social situation you may find yourself in, everyone acts like an animal. We are animals. There is no distancing yourself from it. You don't even know what acting like an animal means.

I'll start with mine

It would be nice if the majority of the boomer, 60's counterculture, TV generation all just croak from this virus.
But it would be equally nice if this virus distrupted the public schooling system so that everything moves online.
The government then finds it an effective means of cutting costs as they don't have to payroll as many teachers, supply facilities, equipment, etc.
What this would mean is that a whole generation would not be socially conditioned
1. by their parents who are too busy with work to have time to babysit
2. from school which only consists of online courses rather than irl social pressuring/indoctrination

Without any social setting they would end up shaped by the non-conformist online community at large.

>If it doesn't personally affect you too much, why care?

Everyone is affected by the economy. Everyone, including you and I can die from the virus. If you disagree, consider that the current death toll of the virus already spawned a global recession that dwarfs the one that began in 2008.

>Things needed a change for the better. Something drastic. Break a few eggs.

The fallout from COVID-19 is not society in the process of changing for the better. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded. You may not be aware of it, but there is a world that exists outside of your college campus.

Not really. It was the response to the virus that spawned this recession. Sweden knows what's up.
>> No. 914 [Edit]
>>913
I'm surprised that I have to clarify this, but it isn't a literal statement. The fallout is from the response to the deaths, not from the deceased no longer contributing to the economy. I don't know why someone would interpret it as that.
>> No. 919 [Edit]

>I don't know why someone would interpret it as that.
I want the distinction to be made because seemingly many people have this idea that the virus is an autonomous being who's mankind's archenemy. The anthropomorphism allows a warlike response and the vindication of the people who fucked up during this shitstorm.
