you can have degrees of individualism/collectivism

2018-02-06 13:54:15 UTC  

giving birth is immmoral and ultimately colllectivist. A baby can't consent to being born, yet he is forced into the world. Reproduction is many times worse than the holocaust but no one bats an eye when hundreds of millions of babies a violently birthed into the world every year.

This ^

2018-02-06 13:55:39 UTC  

An unborn child can neither consent nor refuse to consent so his consent is withheld. If he eventually revokes consent, he should kill himself

2018-02-06 13:55:53 UTC  

is really straying from the topic and is complete crap

2018-02-06 13:56:21 UTC  

saying such a thing is just stupid and you are not taking there discussion seriously

2018-02-06 13:59:19 UTC  

The point is that the individual has certain rights on their property that ensures their saftey from people who wish harm (burgulars and such). However, the collective have a right to be safe as well so they impose some laws that may infringe on peoples indivdualality. THIS is why rape is bad and why growing weed is okay.; weed does little harm and so can be grown on ones property because the collective say so.

I personally believe that john was meaningfully contributing to the discussion by invoking the collectivist implications of reproduction.

2018-02-06 14:00:25 UTC  

NO rape is bad because it violates CONSENT of the INDIVIDUAL.

2018-02-06 14:04:28 UTC  

The individual is what's real. What acts and feels and decides. The collective only exists as a philosophical concept

2018-02-06 14:06:47 UTC  

yet how do people then live in a soicety.

Only the ladder is real

2018-02-06 14:07:04 UTC  

yeah a society isn't a tangible object, either

2018-02-06 14:07:10 UTC  

and yet...

2018-02-06 14:09:36 UTC  

A society can be reduced to the level of cooperating (or not cooperating in the case of socialist societies) individuals.

2018-02-06 14:12:07 UTC  

When you try to give power to collectivist entities you're really just giving power to certain individuals. Concepts such as the collectivist arise because they help us understand the world around us. But people are inclined to get confused, believing that the collective exists independent of the individual and is entitled to its own rights and powers

2018-02-06 14:12:40 UTC  

Lets just come down for a sec.

2018-02-06 14:13:06 UTC  

catholics love the collective

2018-02-06 14:13:14 UTC  


2018-02-06 14:13:16 UTC  


2018-02-06 14:13:29 UTC  

that is why they do not believe in contraception

2018-02-06 14:13:39 UTC  

take father ted here

2018-02-06 14:13:39 UTC  

And Catholics also love smashing alterboi rectums

2018-02-06 14:14:16 UTC  

a totally terrible thing

2018-02-06 14:14:39 UTC  

can an anus consent independently of the consciousness of the mind?

2018-02-06 14:16:13 UTC  

the anus is nothing withou the collective body and SHAFT

2018-02-06 14:16:58 UTC  

whose the black sex machine SHAFT

2018-02-06 14:17:28 UTC  

black sex machine can be interpreted as all black people thereby being a collective

2018-02-06 14:18:12 UTC  

even though there are indivduals (SHAFT) they make up a whole body (sex machines)

2018-02-06 14:20:05 UTC  

silence speaks volumes

2018-02-06 14:21:53 UTC  

The collective may be 'created' as you say but it exists becasue people act like one.

2018-02-06 14:22:15 UTC  

Another example from the ever on top of Father Ted

2018-02-06 14:24:29 UTC  

He offends Asians, which then results in all asians on the island taking offence. Therby acting as a collective and being imune to what a lite joke, also showing that collectives can have similar traits like being humourless unless and the 'whites' expence (see bar scene in same episode)

2018-02-06 14:27:29 UTC  

It's still individuals taking offense. It's also not that irrational if ted is insulting traits that they all share or denigrating all people who belong to that group

2018-02-06 14:29:42 UTC  

"A society can be reduced to the level of cooperating (or not cooperating in the case of socialist societies) individuals."

2018-02-06 14:30:16 UTC  

so if a group of cooperating individuals choose to suspend the rights of a non-cooperating individual...? πŸ€”

2018-02-06 14:31:33 UTC  

Do you mean gooks as a collective?

2018-02-06 14:31:45 UTC  

dont be ridiculous

2018-02-06 14:32:07 UTC  

individual gooks act as members of a greater hivemind
