    I find it really interesting how you said you hate rap but love poetry, rap music has really come into its own helping me with studying poetry, to me the two are near enough the same thing.
    Since when was a fearing death against the norm
    Eh, just not a fan. Nothing against people who listen to it, just really not my cup of tea.

    Why are you surprised? Logically speaking people are more likely to go with dependency, fairness and freedom.
    Why is that logical though?

    It's Idealistic, not logical.

    Ideally, you live in a free, fair state where everything is provided for you. Why is that logical?

    If you are looking for the overall progression of the human race, nothing you outlined is necessary or indeed good.

    There is no such thing as homosxuality, bisexuality or heterosexuality, because there are more than 2 sexes, and each term is taken in context with the other 2. As there are more than 2 sexes one cannot be attracted to 'both' sexes or the 'opposite' sex.

    Radical feminism is not man hating, nor is it related to being a feminazi.

    You shouldn't post 'u' 'r' etc. because it makes you look like an ignorant lazy **** head.

    'gay' as a negative is homophobic and derogatory.

    Obama is a tosser who has socially backwards policies, and giving him the Nobel peace prize was a **** move.

    Eating meat, dairy or eggs when it is not necessary for your survival is immoral.
    Wow, this is tragic.

    Yes, I share your pain! People can't understand why I hate it so much, because I absolutely love most British comedies! Americans just aren't funny!
    I couldn't even sit through 1 episode! And never mind a single class, if I'm with my friends, pretty much anyone we meet will be told and then be aghast at my complete non-interest in Friends.

    (Or similar shows like the Big Bang Theory and 2 Broke Girls, etc.)

    Then again, I think no one is born naturally inferior, so it's all about effort and choices.
    That's just not true. The harsh reality of life is some people are more smarter, more beautiful, more talented, more athletic, more social and more fortunate than others. Putting political correctness aside, some people are just 'better' than others hence by socialists and libertarians pose/suggest regimes to balance out the 'unfairness'.

    Everything is virtually pre-determined imo. Your actions and events in your life are triggered off by things that are pre-determined (genetics and environment).

    It's idealistic but also logical. There's nothing wrong with wanting to attain idealism, even if things are not ideal at first. Democracies strive to improve to reach a certain level of idealism even if it isn't realistic (realistic not meaning impossible). Most people want to be treated right and fairly and with dignity and respect. Why would most people actively choose to want the opposite? It doesn't make sense and hence isn't as logical.

    Natural occurrences =/= positive
    1. It's considered ethical - people shouldn't be punished for things out of their control.
    2. Some of the unfairness are due to unfair/corrupt/unfortunate political, economical and social implementations.

    I wasn't saying that Natural occurrences are positive, I just think that society trying to balance out things like lack of wealth due to lack of intelligence is utterly outrageous.

    The whole argument for being "naturally" more intelligent is also horse****, your early years derive an incredible amount, as does discussion and education of intellectual topics at home.


    I hate your #2 point. It is exactly reasons like this that social and economic hand holding are such an issue. Please give me an example of one of your "unfair/corrupt or unfortunate" implementations are.

    American comedy is really bad, excluding it's odd cartoon and Big Bang (only one i like tbh).

    Testing on test tube humans should be legal if it ever became possible, which means I am of course all for testing on lab animals and genetic reaearch.

    Anyone who steps in the way of sceintific progress, unless they can provide evidance that said science would cause harm to those not involved, should be fined.

    Religon is not a Charity and should not be treated as such.

    Parenting test should be taken before one is allowed to reproduce, this test wouldn't be one of intellegance but one that revolves around basic skills such as basic teaching, basic biology about babies, and certain key topics for raise a child.

    Obese people who aren't fat because of genetics or a disability should be taxed for their average cost to the NHS.

    the UK should allow forgein prime ministers

    the UK should expand it's armed forces and it's territory via force or diplomatic and economic expansion into the EU

    the UK should have an Army base in the artic to claim valuable future resources.

    Education should be promoted as the highest priority second only to income for a econamy to thrive.

    I agree with the bank bailouts, however those responsible for being careless should have the value of their pay and bonouses for the past 10 years of work taken, this should be used to stimulate the econamy or help pay back the debts we owe.

    people with a severe disability which could be passed onto children (higher than 10%) shouldn't be allowed to reproduce.

    adoption should be promoted over artifical insamination and extra benifits given to those who adopt.

    The idea that we are living in a "Golden Age" or "Utopia" is wrong. I think the world is in an awful state and humans are too prideful to admit it. Our "liberal" world is actually imprisoning our minds in things that will ultimately never make us happy.

    Evidence to suggest it's horse****? It's just you deciding not to accept genetics can determine a person's traits. Intelligence is inherent as well as nurtured (even its nurture is sometimes out a child's control). How do you explain disabilities and learning difficulties? Being 'naturally' more intelligent is no more ridiculous than being naturally taller, slimmer, athletic.

    Governments misuse of money handling which leads their citizens being worse off, governments negligence towards their citizens thus causing greater problems. The man-made implementation of economy, social status and trade. Societies implementation of prejudice and discrimination a lot of which is based on ignorance.

    I think you're just an ignorant and fascist person trying to come across as more knowledgeable than you actually are. As I said, there's a special place in hell reserved for you.

    As this is a thread for just positing unpopular opinions, I won't derail the thread anymore by posting arguments.
