Quote from: Baruch on August 25, 2015, 07:05:54 AMBut the real goal of BJP is to force all Muslims to Hinduism, and into the untouchable class. Of BJP, everyone who is not of their party is of Ravana, they are the party of Rama. Oh, gotta conquer Sri Lanka while they are at it, not just Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Quote from: Baruch on August 25, 2015, 01:53:22 PMDemocracy has always fallen to authoritarian strongmen ... sigh ... in Greece and India ... and is happening now for a long time in the US. Though I would hope the decentralized India would continue to do better than Pakistan in this regard. Isn't the new Indian PM too close to the corporations?

Quote from: jonb on August 25, 2015, 08:07:45 AMIf we take swastika boys excuse for the Hindus that a thousand years ago they were ruled by others, then the other part of his argument that much that was wrong is the fault of the British does not stand because British history holds exactly the same excuse for the British. .. I am saying both pot and Kettle are black, Swastika boy is putting forward the idea his side is all white, and that looks very fundamentalist to me.
Quote from: Mike Cl on August 25, 2015, 02:12:25 PMI'm not sure. I asked what you meant by, "Evolution is not a blind process. It proceeds according to its experience. When we do not require a tail, it withers." Understand, I am not trying to put you into any particular hole--I was, and, am, curious what you meant by, especially, 'it proceeds according to its experience.' I'm honestly stuck on what you mean. That's all.
