  1. What is freedom really?

    There’s two broad types of freedoms, “freedom to” and “freedom from”. The second one is the more precious one.
  2. Your Username Or Avatar

    I’ve changed my avatar image too many times over the years. I’m a perfectionist, and keep trying to find the right image that fits the right mood, color scheme, visibility, and design. I go through many artistic phases, and have overthought it more than I should. I envy those of you who have kept the same image for years, of which they’ve become iconic. I’m too experimental and hands on to let things set forever. As you all know
  3. Checking the phone for what exactly? For a specific purpose or just because....?
  4. Donald J. Trump [OFFICIAL THREAD]

    Isn’t it obvious there’s a symbiotic loop going on between Trump and the media? Like they feed one another? Trump says something, the media flashes it around to feign outrage, they get views and ratings, while Trump gets the attention he craves. Then the process repeats and repeats. My question is, how long will this gravy train last?
  5. This is a stupid proposition and not worth discussion. Anyone can be a Muslim. Thread closed.
  6. Do they have evidence? Or are they just making assumptions? They live in bubbles where they are surrounded by like minded people. It’s inconceivable to them that many would be pro-IR, so the only mental conclusion they can make is that their paid. Doesn’t help these types are materialist thinkers only, and think the world only runs in dollars and cents.
  7. Communism

    Neither capitalism or communism are compatible with most religious systems, especially the Abrahamic tradition. Neither put any relevance to God, and address only man's relationship with others and of the material world. Religion is only tolerated and accommodated in its most sterile form. The centrality of profit-seeking and class struggle for humanity is misguided, and ignores many ethical, metaphysical, and temporal realities.

  9. Is raising your voice allowed?

  10. Thoughts 2018

    I’ve heard that before.
  11. Social Media Addiction

    In theory, isn’t social media supposed to be a reflection, not replacement for reality? If everyone is sitting inside on the phones, then who is in the outside photos that they’re seeing? Who is attending the real life events that are promoted and discussed? Because of the need for real world content as substance, social media cannot be completely virtualized, right? Or is the ratio of producer to consumer shrinking? And if so, how sustainable is that? Or has the notion of “content” itself changed, to render most of the real world obsolete?
  12. Shiism Tajikistan

    The discussion is continuing in the linked topic above. No need to start a new topic.
  13. Unsourced replies

    It’s unrealistic for people to cite an exact source for everything they say, and if that becomes your baseline expectation, you will become very disappointed — not just here but in life.
