If you really think that the destruction of property by a few angry miscreants excuses your wholesale practice of disrespect, immorality and other assorted offensiveness, you're mistaken.

You support a philosophy, party and movement that is filled with hate, violence, corruption, and disrespect for human decency and you cannot excuse it by attacking me personally for pointing out the moral bankruptcy that is the party you support....Republicans control the House, Senate, President, Supreme Court, State Governors, and State Legislatures because they don't treat the average American as a Basket of Deplorables.

False. Your ignorance of what I support is the undoing of your rhetoric - the ultimate is sore winner, bombastic blow-hard behavior.

Try learning more about other people. It may change your perspective on the world.

However, my point is that until you're willing to set aside all your intentions for your own development, don't abrasively insist that others kowtow to your curriculum. Respect others as you would have them respect you..
I did think about your "religion" but it does not have the appeal to me that it does for you...and my recommendations were mere suggestions which might be enlightening, edifying, helpful or otherwise interesting to you....nothing abrasive intended. The world is a magical place and it sounds as if you are striving for that. It's interesting to compare and contrast...not to be right but to be informed and balanced. I myself think of the Sufi's. Sorry that my attempts to engage you in a conversation did not appear to you to be that. Oh well, a tiny disappointment for moi.

Sorry but your demeanor toward people who disagree with you works against any such impression.

A generalization?

A generalization about one person's posting demeanor? You must be using the term "generalization" in a manner inconsistent with its actual definition. (Probably because there is no legitimate criticism for my observation that you could come up with.)

I could say the same about you but sore loser instead of sore winner. Do you think loving the members of the KKK will trump their hate? Do you think liberals destroying our cities and physically attacking Conservatives is a desirable end because you lost?

No I was simply pointing out to you that your posts are rarely generalizations typically very specific and that it surprised me that your post selected an unspecific quantifiable response typical of your posts.

As I said I was not interested in an argument but to see if you were interested in John Rawls take on law and society.

I am starting to think that your animus towards myself and others while labeling them or their beliefs is more of a projective faculty within you. Being that as it is, your obvious book learning has not engendered a more delicate preserved perspective on fellow human beings, and that, at least to me, at this point in chatting with you, is a potential area in terms of personality and education you may want to study. I could be wrong, however, and at this point I cannot tell if you are cynical, lonely or just pisse d off?
