tasmic, this thread will drop like a lead ballon, given the sheer terror folk here have toward introspection.
My first impression was that this must be some anti-warmist propaganda, excepting that it was posted by tasmic. To find out it is warmist propaganda feels odd, given that it seems so counter to their objectives.
Sick, but it does serve as good evidence that the warmists have lost the argument.
How can it be seen as ‘funny’ to blow up kids in a classroom for not getting with the program? Weird, just weird, but then again, school is all about getting kids to go along with the program. That Bernaisian stimulus response program, whohoo.
I need to find a profile on a Swedish warmist philosopher that clearly shows the fascist control freak impulse behind this govt. inspired taxing scam. In the mean time I’d like to suggest, that while Joe observes that a strong point about the RI crowd is it’s willingness to question their own assumptions, I do not agree. People here seem just as fixed in their opinions as are folk in the larger world. I was shocked when I realized how many folk here are hard warmists, or soft warmists, just to be in with the in crowd I imagine. Folk here can be quite smug when speaking of the ignorance of religionists, yet seem totally unaware of their own kool-aid consumption. Add to that wintler2’s lament that he cannot call out dissenters as paid infiltrators or some such thing. I can only laugh at attempts to pile derision on folk that dissent from dominant opinions. Social engineering does not only come from on high. It also comes from simple insecurity looking for validation combined with a dream of being one of the righteous humans. In short; white mans dis-ease. News Flash; our intellectual constructs are shabby representations of reality. But hey, it’s not like a couple of unsourced sentences on the intertubes are gonna cause to lose your faith, so carry on. I still will not call or think of you as nitwits or shills, although I do tend to think that smart people are addicted to forms because that is how smart people convince other smart people that they are smart people.10:10

While its true that my non-warmist position is visceral rather than intellectual, this fellow does a fair scientific breakdown of warmist scare mongering.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOLkze-9GcI
All these things will continue as long as coercion remains a central element of our mentality.
