Accessible education and health care can be investments just as much as infrastructural development. Arguably, a lack of investment in these resources contributed significantly to these countries being in their present predicament.
I'm afraid your analysis here lacks explanatory force.
Yes. Being hunted down, murdered, and ostrasized, simply because of a person's religion is a problem. Blaming an entire group for the poor actions of a few, in ANY situation, is a problem.
I probably agree with you but the problem here is that the question wasn't: Is it OK to hunt down, murder and ostracise people because of their religion. No other religions were even mentioned. Just anti-Semitism. It plays right into my argument that (some, not all) Jews feel entitled to special treatment.
In a lot of European countries it is illegal to question or deny the Holocaust. Not the actual Holocaust, mind. What it is illegal to question or deny is the narrative that it was all about wiping Jews out. And make no mistake about it: these laws were established because of Jewish lobbying. Whatever anybody thinks about the Holocaust is up to them just as much as it is up to people which god they want to believe in. Hence, I see a lot of common people fighting for the rights of people who don't have any intention of giving those same rights back when the shoe is on the other foot.
While I respect many of your other opinions, Burrito, I must respectfully disagree. Historically, Anti-Jews have been much more destructive towards Judaism (ie the KKK) than atheists have been towards Christians.
Thank you, and likewise.
I don't disagree that the KKK are not fond of Jews, but I do not accept that Jews are more persecuted by the KKK than either blacks or Muslims. The KKK are renowned for their views about blacks rather than Jews. To be honest I think your response plays right into my argument that Jews demand special treatment.
The Ku Klux Klan (/ˌkuː klʌks ˈklæn, ˌkjuː-/),[a] commonly called the KKK or the Klan, is an American white supremacist hate group whose primary targets are African Americans, as well as Jews, immigrants, leftists, homosexuals, and, until recently, Catholics.
So, according to Wiki, there are five other groups targeted by the KKK, including Catholics.
Is antisemetism a serious problem, in global society?
No, not in the slightest. Judaism is a very damaging religion which demands other people give it special treatment. It's what the Church of Scientology wishes it could be.
You might think I'm talking shit, but anti-Christians and anti-Muslims are just called atheists. Anti-Jews are frequently jailed. In Europe at least.
Burrito, conversation with you is impossible because you aren't interested in having one
Oh shut up you condescending idiot. I'm not interested in you distorting the things other people say you mad bitch. That's what you don't like. You're untruthful, you're dishonest, you're incapable of self-criticism and you're just generally a complete cunt of a person.
As far as I can see, the "God" in the Bible is doing whatever the individual reader wants it to do at a particular time. It can be made to fit ANY situation, express ANY opinion, elevate or denigrate ANY movement or action, some even look at it upside down. ;-)
That's a damned fine assessment. It explains why some Christians make you tea while others burn you at the stake.
As whites have, by far and away contributed most to the welfare and advancement of mankind
What complete and utter racist codswallop. You're just a fucking dickhead buddy. Plain and simple. What you are is a dickhead. Whites have enslaved all other racial groups and invented a system literally grounded in the exploitation of other people's labour. Welfare and advancement my arse. Try self-interest and power.
As with everything on earth,we must recognise that people's lives also have a hierarchy.
You would not be saying that if you were at the bottom of that hierarchy, and that is why we should automatically disregard everything you say on the grounds that you are a biased, self-interested, disingenuous bag of cocks.
I don't know from where you have fished the term ''free health care''.
That's because you are incapable of visualising any part of past, present or future which is not dominated by capitalism.
How can anything be free?
Free is the natural state of things. Before capitalists told you they owned the banana trees you could go and pick bananas for free. Before capitalists told you they owned the deer, you could hunt deer for free.
Yours is a level of ignorance which I personally find very offensive.
