    Abortion is awesome. No you still don't understand. Moral is what furthers the good of a group. What member of the group think to be moral is a totally DIFFERENT thing. Sure the Nazis thought putting jews in gas chambers was morally right but that does not make it morally right. (Hint: People can be wrong)

Should that government be opposed? If so, by who? You're not really thinking this through.
    Welcome to the real world there things ain�t not simple. Try to get your basics down first.

    Your proxy argument is total bullshit. Giving a charity my money would mean I get no credit while I get it when I give directly.

    See the point is, I don't deserve credit, which also means I don't deserve blame. So I don't feel any guilt. I think a bit historical awareness is appropriate and that�s it.

    Now the question is why you guys feel guilty.

    You confuse practical with hypocritical.
    When people in Germany give something back that got stolen 100 years ago, you cheer it on but 200 years ago that is already out of bounds. You draw the line at a point that suits you.

    You guys are awesome, thanks.. i mean those payments you gave every month to my grandparents, they really compensated for all the lives and property left behind to be devoured be the oh so moral neighbors. Now i live in Israel, with slightly better neighbors.. and the situation here is just fucking peachy. Yea, you made a real effort much better than japan, true that one can claim that the fucking Atom bombs along with the carpet bombing and mass fires is punishment enough..but ah.. **** it, the ones that suffered the most from Japan are doing just fine.

These were some things not considered in your oversimplified house analogy.

    Yeah that is why your example sucked. Mine implied he was the rightful owner. But even if he were not, it would still be murder for profit.
    Your example sucked because it oversimplified the situation to the point that useful inferences couldn't be drawn.

    Imagine if your ideas were a house, but the idea roof wasn't properly waterproofed with the shingles of nuance, letting in the rain of complexity, and in your soaked and cold state, you don't notice the guy from your analogy and he kills you. Or trades you a space blanket for your crappy house. Then a Native American demands the house, he gets stabbed, and his stopped heart triggers the nuclear bomb in the sidecar of his motorcycle outside, killing everyone.

    Do you see how an erroneous simplified analogy doesn't really help the conversation along?

    He has no right to decide that but an legitimate government can do this. For example emergency or they want to build a road or whatever.
    So you'd be happy to move if the government needed to build a road?

    My morals which are supposed to apply universal.
    Morals are not universal.

    I AM German. So yes I am allowed to put the finger at you fuckers. In Germany we did quite a lot to make up for the crime of our ancestors. Well the German government but I pay taxes and vote so me included.
    You're pointing your finger at us taxpaying voting motherfuckers because you pay taxes and vote?

    Exactly.

    My response to Owlet's "racism is always wrong" was to point out, not that he's living on land taken from another race (who isn't?), but that he's doing so while at the same time decrying all racism in others.

    Seems that, for Owlet, some forms of racism are less odious than others.

    No money in the world can properly compensate for what happened. I can not change what happened, having some historical awareness and watching out nothing the like happens again is the only thing I can do and the only thing that can be reasonably expected from me.

    Yes of course the real situation was much differently. It was to understand the principles first.

    I don't even believe that OwlMatt should give away his land. I just think that his lack of ideological justification for not doing so is telling.

    Well the government has the right to do so. Of course it sucks most of the time when you have to move out.

    Not less odious, just more reparable. We can't go back and undo the racism of the past, but we can confront the racism of the present.

    By the way, since you openly accused me of being a supporter of reparations, how about you back that up? You were obviously bothered by my suggestion that you were just making **** up, so feel free to show how you weren't just making **** up.

    We should all just look for more creative reasons to hate people, race aside.

    Start a training log!
