Have you ever noticed when an empirical society pursues a nihilistic community it fails shortly after? Rome, Greece, etc...

WORST 2015 THREAD EVER


Worst 2015 reply ?

Also to imply ever would suggest that that this was definative.

How is your short reply any different to a short OP?

I anticipate your answers on this.

Why are you defending a Post and Run member?
Even you know that his OP is not acceptable in the ATS world.

Dictionary definition of "Empirical";
"Based or acting upon observation or experiment, rather than theory".
What empirical societies can you identify in history?

I was not defending his OP.

I was giving it the benifit of doubt as to give them a chance to go into more detail.

I was questioning your response, as someone that feels themself as a member of the ATS world I would expect more.

Who would give the OP flags? Based on what? Why can't there be a upvote/downvote thingy instead of flags.

WOW, just WOW! Maybe be constructive and help a new member figure out what they need to do to make better threads instead of attacking and demeaning a person who is trying to bring a subject to the table. That would help make ATS better instead of people being afraid to say something or start a thread.

Thanks for posting that link. When I read it as this starting in the 60s and 70s ...so true. I know , I was there . That was an EXACT description of the way it was. I dont know who this guy is but he sure sounds like he lived the life as well .The progressive liberal party that completely overran the original true blue collar democratic party began with us.I look back now and wonder why. But it all started with the anti-war anti-pollution anti-killing the world ideals. It was a very honorable movement with peaceful protests , sit ins , et al. We started the movement to get all industry , nuclear power , steel mills you name it out of the US. We didnt need the pollution and we could still buy the products.Let another country make it for us and suffer the consequences,we did not have to. we created a monster.

What makes anyone think human nature or government has changed ?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled,
public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should
be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands
should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again
learn to work instead of living on public assistance."

-- Cicero -- 55 BC

Sorry man I thought you'd be able to get enough from that! Did I post this in the wrong spot too? I'm still getting used to all this. And thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt folks!!
