Though there are obviously going to be differences (JJ isn't denying that), there are going to be a lot of similarities too, as there are with pretty much every moral value system.Do you think maybe, just maybe, JJ was suggesting that there's a common ground that we can all respect without blowing each other up?And maybe, just maybe, easing tensions is better than inflaming them?
I have no idea idea how you can call an observation that Silicon Valley boards are mostly made up of white men a psychosis. I don't think that word means what you think it means.
And then there's the straw man follow up, where you quite literally make up an argument just so you can get upset about it. I thought you hated straw men?
Oh I understand all that, I'm just talking specifically about the description of it as the antithesis. It wasn't me that brought up the British Empire, it was Frost. I feel a bit offended at the confusion actually
I'm not sure it's the antithesis. A commonwealth can have imperial aspirations just as much as any polity.Indeed, "for the common good" has been used as a justification for empire building many times over.
