Very good topic!!! I'm right in the middle of it since I'm in university!
There is a good side and a bad side to this, the good side is that it gets young people to interest themselves in politics, when more and more people stop voting because they dont care, as you said those people dont have the experience and knowledge to discuss of such a large pannel of issues, so most of the time what they say isnt worth much, wich isnt that bad because as soon as they try to have a real conversation with an adult or another "educated" young adult they are quickly shown that teir ideas are immature and need more refining, wich pushes them to learn more about the issues and sometimes change their minds
But the downside is even more important and I'm experiencing it right now: in a university right next to mine there are many marxist/communist youtubers and with the help of their fans (about 200) they have blocked the university (by beating upp teachers and students, stacking tables in front of doors etc) and will not stop unless the administration gives in to their demands: more vacation, easier tests, and the minimum grade of 18/20 for everyone on their finals. This situation has been going on for about a month so I'm assembling a group a tough guys and contacting extreme right activists to "liberate" the university
If God choses who goes to heaven & who goes to hell, what happens if someone who has been good all his life is not one of the chosen?
In this scenario
- if there is free will : the person chose to be good and yet God doesnt let him into paradise = injustice
-if there isnt free will , God "obliged" someone to be bad
Oh no another k-pop and k-drama fan ;) A friend of mine actually obliged me to watch some with her, and frankly it wasnt so bad, violence and sex scene were minimal with intresting plot, the only problem is that for me pretty much all asians look the same so ....
At this point the whole story with the porn star seems to be a "sore loser" move from the left, unless they arrive to present the story in such a way that it would dissuade the "ultra christian" faction inside the republican party to not vote for Trump again, but I sincerely doubt it.
Good question ! I'm not really sure, but if I had to bet I'd say there arent going to be any black riots, probably just the usual anti police/ extreme left morons
But still, shooting a guy because he had his pants down and refused to obey an order? I dunno how is the training of the american police but there seems to be too many screw upps that could have been easily avoided
Many things could have been done to save the Titanic: if the captain had ordered to ram the iceberg head on instead of trying to avoid it only two compartments would have been breached and the Titanic could have continued its journey safely
(But still admire the irony: it was sad at the time that not even God could sink that shi^p, and yet it sunk because of freakin icecube!!! ;)
Well in wester culture not showing your face has always been suspicious, I would not believe or trust someone who doesnt show his face to me, and nowadays it is even more suspicious since it allows you to hide your face from security cameras
So yes! Banning burkas is a good idea! (its already been done in France and other european countries)
People who just arrived in the country can be as patriotic as someone whos family has beeen there a long time, but usually people who really care about their country have been there for a long time.
Dunno how it is in the US but in France its easy to trace your origins because the church has done a remarquable job of keeping birth and death records. My families earliest recorded ancestor lived during the 12th century and was named Pierre, cheers to him !
Its against the rules to make debates wich are not in the form of a question, as it is against the rules to personnally attack people. Do you want to know why? Its is to avoid utterly stupid and pointless debates such as this one.
"Andy doesn't know the difference between science and religion"
As debators what do you expect us to do when we see the title of such a "debate"? There is no debate to be had, you are just throwing out your opinions without backing them upp without any kind of evidence. A user of this website once compared people who do such things as "monkeys who throw shit at each other" , the image is stricking and fits perfectly
Here is a usefull link on how to debate, please read it:
Dunno what debate youre talking about, but maybe its because you were not following the rules he specified? This debate doesnt follow the rules either btw:
-1. All debates must be written in the form of a question. If you do not, I will take the liberty to change those which I see are statements into questions.
-3. No attacks on members. You may post debates and arguments that attack public figures, but you may not post a debate or argument attacking another member. Do it once and you will be warned. Do it twice and you will be banned.
Go read the rules and have a nice day
I'm not sure its the republican party as a whole who is against abortion but rather the christian part of it. But nonetheless I think you are right some christians are real hipocrytes (spelling?) on the question of abortion; publicly they are against it but when no one is looking they dishonor their faith
The problem with that reasoning is that the fetus didnt just pop out of nowhere like some kind of virus, it was due to consensual hanky panky stuff (rape cases etc put aside of course) If you cant assume the consequences of an action, just dont do it!
And even after birth the baby is reliable on its mother for sustenance
I dont know much about US law but even if she revealed her affair with Trump I doubt that could have him impeached or whatever. The left wing media will probably just make fun of him and throw rumors that his marriage is crumbling while right wing media wont discuss the facts much or bring upp the rapes of president Clinton
Am I right?
A) I have two younger sisters Charlotte and Noémie, dunno if that was what you meant ^^
B) I taught basic english and latin to kids, and advanced french to adults
C) I gave blood a year and a half ago, and apparently my blood has an unusual quantity of platelets so every 3 or 4 months they call me to give blood and offer me a meal
G) In highschool I made a story telling group, I couldnt read books to them because since it was a catholic school I would have had every book to be approved by the school and it would have taken an eternity to get the group going
I) I am on the administration council, most of my job consists of stopping the pseudo communist group
You wont be tortured and put to death because you knocked something off a shelf at your local supermarket ;)
Torture is sometimes necessary, all countries practice it but few admit to it. What would you do if you caught a terrorist who planted a bomb somewhere and refused to reveal the location?
You would have the choice between torturing a murderer, or letting innocents die. For me the choice is already done
Just read about this course on wikipedia
Why not use it? Many bad people have invented good things; its not as if this course taught you how to be a child molester. From what I understood the course was about discipline and being yourselfn where is the wrong in that?
I can understand why americans dont like russians, but dont try to push your hatred of them on the rest of the world
"But the russians will cause a nuclear apocalypse!!" Please, you americans are the only nation in the world that have used nuclear weapons
So fuck you
Yeah sorry I couldnt give a very profound answer last time, I had tests and stuff to do
Democracy clearly isnt working out in my country, after the monarchy fell we have been through a succession of regimes that just dont work out. A clear proof of this is that todays republic is the 5th (and there are talks about making a 6th one)
Having a hereditary ruler would give us a continuity in our political agenda, because currently each time a leftist president does something, the next rightist president cancels it, and vice versa.
France isnt like the US where people vote for one party and stick to it for years, they vote for one side and then the other, which is bringing us nowhere
There is also another problem: since nothing is happening in french politics people became completly uninterested in them, in the last presidential elections 43 million people could vote and 35% or 40% didnt, this has been happening for years and is getting worse, each president is getting more illegitimous than the last
The people have no idea who to vote for, they just follow the media blindly, the candidate who was going to win last years elections was destroyed by the media for a minor fraud, while he was an accomplished man with experience.
Our actual president is a kid who won the elections without even presenting a program!!!!! At the time if you asked people who they were going to vote for they would reply Macron, and if you asked them why they said it was because he was young and dynamic
I could talk about this subject for hours, but here is my conclusion: the french people are too fkn dumb to vote
Hard to answer this question without writing a whole book (in France the roman empire is one of the most important things we study), but the answer can be summed upp to:
-During the monarchy: a bit early to tell
-During the republic: socially left wing, economically right wing
-During the empire: three periods: 1) capitalist 2) "soft" socialism 3) hardcore communist dystopia
I come from a only boys school, and from what I can see here are the main benefits:
-boys work a lot better if there are no girls around, easier to concentrate without being in a relationship
-since we dont know many girls we have a tendency to be a lot more polite and caring (witch the ladies seem to like)
After not being around girls until university, there are tipically two kind of guys:
-the guys that will date pretty much any girl and have 3 girlfriends a year
-the guys that are like: "I have waited until now, why not wait for the right one?"
Hi I'm catholic and I dont know much about protestants but it doesnt seem to make sense: why would God give us the right to only exist in hell?
There is no predestination, we are all born equal in front of God and our actions and toughts determine if we go to hell or heaven
After my own observation I can say there is a wage gap: not because women are payed less because they are women but because they work jobs they like even if they dont pay much (women do mostly "social" work: history, litterature, languages etc) while often men dont consider if they like the job or not, they just look at the salary
I have said it before and I will say it again:
We abosolutely need more lucid politicians like Jolie running the world, things would be so much better, she is like a super AI: capable of learning from everything, just look at the brilliant idea that has just sparked in her while watching the Matrix
I wonder what wondrous ideas might spawn in her mind while watching Disney movies
