@CYDdharta But the claim at hand is that america is founded on genocide, This is factual history. But right now you are comparing the jizya to mafia giving protection. Also, Did you kick the Lutherans or the moonies [And so on] Out of your home? And then they came and took it back? The point of the jizya is: You kicked me out of my home, I took it back. But i won't kill or exile you. Just pay me for your protection, And protected you will be.
@Logic You can't compare Chomsky to someone who speaks the truth.
Even on the rare occasions when Mr. Chomsky is dealing with facts and
not with fantasies, he exaggerates by a factor of, plus or minus, four
or five. - (Walter Laqueur, The New Republic, March 24, 1982)
In one of Chomsky's latest articles, as he laments bin Laden's death he states that "80 commandos facing virtually no opposition" were involved in the raid. The total number of SEALs that were on the ground in bin Laden's compound were 25. That's one of his newer lies that isn't included in this list of top Chomsky lies.
Here's a question for you Logic, do you support IS's use of children to carry out suicide bombing attacks?
@CYDdharta, great question. It doesn't matter if we never find out and if origin of life (like religion vs atheism) is not a topic of interest. With any sophisticated system there is likely a glitch, and in all shows mentioned there was a tell to determine reality vs simulation, with atleast some characters finding out the truth. Not sure that many would thrilled to find out that I am a simulation in some alien plot, so it does kind of matters. At the same time I can see a path of many to accept such reality if found out.
Don't get me wrong, I know there's sexism out there against Women, I know they were excluded from a great deal of benefits in our Country for a long time. But in today's United States, there are people that would have us believe that the plight of Woman is the same Plight as the Slaves and it's simply not so. While we still need to adjust our sight picture in regards to equality...things aren't NEARLY as bad as some people make them out to be and even then...it's not like Women are the only ones dealing with inequalities...they're just the ones yelling the loudest about it.
@Logic Of course Noam Chomsky wrote books describing his mistaken belief that the US is the biggest terrorist threat, that's what (real) terrorist sympathizers do. He was a significant influence on bin Laden, in fact bin Laden was reading one of Chomsky's books shortly before he was killed. Chomsky lamented the killing of bin Laden. Chomsky and bin Laden were ideological twins, there is no way to support one and disavow yourself from the other.
Again, I don't see why everyone here thinks i support IS. I absolutely hate them. @CYDdharta Haha, Very funny. [Not really.] Noam chomsky has written books on why the US is the biggest terrorist. And i don't support Osama Bin laden, He killed the innocent people [Eh, just like america did to the natives] My problem is with the corrupt government. @melanielust I'm not too sure if i'm a liberal. If something is dangerous for the country, I think we should try to prevent it. But Trump's methods, I just don't like. And at this point i have no choice but to agree with you, I really would rather that oil in the hands of america. More than IS at least.
