“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
If you gotta have a god, you could do worse than global capitalism.
Get thee into an electric vehicle, beamish!
Our "priests" insist...
.TCSorry for delay. I gave you answer in that thread -- https://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=6758360225120003215&postID=5786591134933165821&isPopup=truePS That is, so you would not think that I somehow became scared of your verbal self-revelations... so you can admit your win.
I didn't put horsewhips out of business. Cotton gins can't crank themselves you know.
I am glad that I found in your such a useful pillow for my pins.
Careful beamish, that was one of Dali's rhinocerous fantasies....
Is this how Q see's you now?
Hardly. :-)))I do not see a problem in ignorance. In our modern time when learning never was THAT simple.And in stubborn ignorance too. I learned to be patient about it... lately.Another word. I have no animosity toward TC, what so ever.But neither respect too.
He's an "acquired taste". Someone who makes you "stronger".
:-)So, I can fight for being his better version here? :-)))
Well, talk with him reminds me when I talked with one catholic priest.That claimed that he "know all treaks and talking points of atheists", because they teached em in seminary, to repell successfully.But when I said and showed to him that that talking points became moot, several times already -- it was impossible to him to phatome."Changes??? That's impossible. Nothing changes in this world" :-)))
It's not a contest, just a question of time and interests.Have you ever seen this poster from the French Revolution? I would draw your attention to the "feet" of the peasants. The man's is on a "newspaper". The woman's is on a Bible.. Which one would you suppose stands upon "firmer" ground?What do you think of this foot from Dali's "Enigma of William Tell"?I'm a big Salvador Dali fan. Surrealism is one of my interests.
\\The man's is on a "newspaper". The woman's is on a Bible..Well, their faces tell it all. :-P :-)))
After the 1960's the American university systems dropped the Western Core/ curriculum/ canon. The modern "educated" Americans foundation has become a newspaper.
Nietzsche, "On the Future of Our Educational Institutions:...which the scientific man, as such, is no longer allowed to speak. On the other hand, that adhesive and tenacious stratum which has now filled up the interstices between the sciences--Journalism--believes it has a mission to fulfil here, and this it does, according to its own particular lights--that is to say, as its name implies, after the fashion of a day-labourer."It is precisely in journalism that the two tendencies combine and become one. The expansion and the diminution of education here join hands. The newspaper actually steps into the place of culture, and he who, even as a scholar, wishes to voice any claim for education, must avail himself of this viscous stratum of communication which cements the seams between all forms of life, all classes, all arts, and all sciences, and which is as firm and reliable as news paper is, as a rule. In the newspaper the peculiar educational aims of the present culminate, just as the journalist, the servant of the moment, has stepped into the place of the genius, of the leader for all time, of the deliverer from the tyranny of the moment. Now, tell me, distinguished master, what hopes could I still have in a struggle against the general topsy-turvification of all genuine aims for education; with what courage can I, a single teacher, step forward, when I know that the moment any seeds of real culture are sown, they will be mercilessly crushed by the roller of this pseudo-culture? Imagine how useless the most energetic work on the part of the individual teacher must be, who would fain lead a pupil back into the distant and evasive Hellenic world and to the real home of culture, when in less than an hour, that same pupil will have recourse to a newspaper, the latest novel, or one of those learned books, the very style of which already bears the revolting impress of modern barbaric culture--"
It's gone from bad to worse... journalists with "cultural capitalism" agenda's imparted to them at University through Leftist indoctrination.
