hey just seeing who likes philosophy and what kind you like. also we can debate about others as well.Me i'm a consertive (just to get started)
Well I'm not really sure what mine is...*thinking*...I've never thought about it actually...or maybe I have and just didn't realize it... anything is possible with me...There are so many different kinds... all can be "hot topics" hehehe. I guess you could say I'm one for a peaceful existance --if that is possible in this workd today. I like to think that we were meant to be here and to be at peace with each other, but there are those "evil forces", some poeple call it devil, satan and his minions, that play havock with us all, to make us miserable. It is liek we're being tested to see how much we can deal with, you know? But I have always believed that God will not allow us to be tested for more than we can deal with...and that we need to have faith in Him. (How's this for a start Gin?)

But i think shall be our own doing that will destory us and as Einstien said "as long as there are humans there is war" "Shinso slay them all"
that is a good point... it does seem like most of us humans have it in us to want to fight... don't know why though. It is sad that we tend to be that way...It's like we, as humans, have a need/desire to be 'one up' on people. This is a real shame in my opinion. Because we're not any different really -except by the color of our skin, religion, and the foods we like to eat. Dewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819
on most things i am liberal. but some things i am conservive.i am not a flip-flopperwhat i belive, is what i stand for.and i am not one of those hippie tree huggin' liberals either. i just have the same point of views
what most people don't know is that i use to be BUT NO LONGER a communist so i've been there done that"Shinso slay them all"
that'd be the same for me i guess... i also stand for whatever i believe in... and because of that i think the most logical work of philosophy is embodied in 8 words: "stay if you're happy, leave if you're not"... i mean people should learn to trust themselves and stand up for themselves and whatever they believe in...and live their life the way they see fit... because whatever we become would depend on the choices we make... I remember a line by Victor Frankl and he said: "everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way"(oh if you're wondering who Viktor Frankl is he was the one who wrote the book Man's Search for Meaning... i learned about him when i took up a philosophy class last year... according to him meaning is something contextual and asking someone "what is the meaning of life?" is asking a wrong question... it's like asking what is the best move in chess?... that's because there is no definite answer coz meaning is found within the situation...) ^_^~Crescent"...beneath the truth lies a lie and behind lies hides the truth..."
i live by a few quotes "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" "religion is the opiante of man"(karl marx) "everybody is created equal" that's what i belivie and also i take no crap from anybody as well endless i actully deserve it"Shinso slay them all"
I really don't have any quotes that I live by... but the ones you have stated pretty much apply to my way of life and what I believe. Dewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819

I did as well... but still I make some "stupid" typing mistakes... lol Dewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819
when don't we ge toff topic but back on (start at the top) what do you think about Communism"Shinso slay them all"
only hopeless cowards would think they are incapable of taking control of their own lives... i mean it's your own life right why give it to others to control... >"the enemy of my enemy is my friend" --ooh that's a cool line!^_^> "everybody is created equal" --- i love that *grins* (it's just a pity that not everyone understands that though.. that's why there's still so many sad and painful things happening in this world...)~Crescent"...beneath the truth lies a lie and behind lies hides the truth..."
Well that is a deep topic... I know that Russia and China are considered in that catagory...That Stallin was one and he did a lot of pretty bad stuff...As for my opinion on it, well being an American and all, I guess I think that it's not all that great.But I'm sure that there are a lot of good things that resulted from that kind of government for their countries as well as the bad...just like here in the USA where democracy has had it problems... Dewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819
Stalin actully wasn't a communist and the party hated him Lenin hated him but he did do a lot great and terrible things for russia. Russia now is a dictatorship. China i think is a nationalist not a communist state. Me being a former comunist i know all the rights and wrongs good purpose but never will work"Shinso slay them all"
Like I said I'm not that great in anything history related.... at least I had the part right about Satllin being involved with russian politics *sigh*. Russia used to be big time communist though, and I remember hearing a lot on the news about the "cold war" when I was in high school. I didn't really pay attention to it that much though. China used to be communist. Didn't know you were a communist, never would have guessed that. You're a cool guy...just goes to show you that the saying " Don't judge a book by it's cover" is 100% correct. It's what's inside that counts. I've never really considered myself anything in particular as far as politics are concerned...in fact I'm registered as non-partisian for voting.Dewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819
be it democracy or communism, they both have their own good sides but i guess one can never really find both totally satisfying... i mean for communism egalitarianism seems good with its doctrine that each person should be treated equal, a classless society... it must be nice to live in such a society but on the other hand, with everyone equal and such there'd be no room for personal growth for those who strive harder than the rest coz everything is controlled so as to ensure that a communist society would remain egalitarian...oh by the way, i was just wondering... did any country really achieve true communism? i mean i know China and Russia were classified as communists but communism is supposed to be all about classless society and all those stuff you find under the definition of communism... were they really like that?~Crescent"...beneath the truth lies a lie and behind lies hides the truth..."
I think that the idea of pure communism is a great idea, but when you put it all together, it wont work. I think the biggest thing about it that wont work is that everyone gets the same pay. If everyone gets the same pay, then people who work hard and have harder jobs wont get paid more than, well, an example: A doctor will get the same pay as a factory worker. Eventually workers wont really have to do anything much to get paid. Like if you were in a car factory and worked on the assembly line, your job was to put bolts on some parts as they pass through. But, since your going to get paid the same anyway, you might miss some, throw some on, and not really try. Democracy has its problems, yes. But I think its a much better way of life than Communism.
that's one of the things i don't like about communism either... it takes out the drive within us to work harder to have a better life... i mean in communism it's like: why the heck should i try harder? we're get the same with everyone else anyway *shrugs*... that's why no matter what it's faults are democracy is way much better... ^_^~Crescent"...beneath the truth lies a lie and behind lies hides the truth..."
like cars houses more land etc...."Shinso slay them all"
In "Das Capita" an encycolopedia of communism the Govment Will give more stuff if you work harder if you don't then you lose stuff that's how they did because the goverment own almost everything like houseing and cars but you did have some personal items and no insurance the Goverment would pay for it all and that has to be a huge pain i mean do you think a power hunary Govermen is going to pay money to it's citizens were i'm going is that communism won't work because there's to much greed "absolute power, corubates absolutly""Shinso slay them all"
Where they would work they had a worker of the month. That was about it. Only the people with, what should be, better paying jobs MIGHT get a little something nice. Maybe. But they really never give you anything because they dont really reconize you. If they did nothing, nothing bad really happened.
In stalin's communism if you didn't work then you would be sent to the golags a russian form of the concenteration camps and you would be forced to work without pay"Shinso slay them all"
All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him. Tzu, Sun

hey you new here ps I'm irish too"Shinso slay them all"http://www.playlist.com/user/39910405
Hey. I'm Irish too... heh heh hehDewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819

Well guess what Zabby....Besides being Irish I''m : German, Italian, Swedish, & Indian ( not sure what tribe though)Dewa Mata,Niji-Hana"Innoscence Activate" http://view.playlist.com/13500951819
My Indian is Appatchi (Or how ever you spell it). I'd have to ask my dad. My grandma was full Indian and I only knew her for 3 years before she died (My dad was adopted) and she died from a drug overdose... (She did drugs constantly... big drug adict)
Zabby, that's sad about your grandma. But at least you got to meet her. I dont' think that my Mom would know what trib of American Indian she is related to, it is from her Dad's side and he died when she was a teenager. So I dont' have anyway of finding out. The interesting thing is that I don't look like I have any Indian in me at all... lol... I'm blond with blue eyes, haha...and I look more Swedish/Irish than anything.
