  1. Hola! Qien es de Sud America?
  2. okay, after enough instances of comedy its lets abstract! it was already pointed out that jokes have a False Exectation. in this case the exception is that although the word implies that since "holy" and "hell" are anti-thesis, that does not mean that "boiling the hell out of it" makes it the antitheses. in the comedy of a parody: take for example the inept, incompetent, brain-dead bureaucracy in a movie. If you are on the premise that these bureaucrats CAN function but don't do so because of various reasons then it makes you laugh by virtue of thinking "that's not how bureaucrats

  4. i always say to women when i meet them: i see your lonely, i also like being alone, want to be alone together? now its good because all people that meet and get together want to be alone together and need to be with someone else with something valuable to them. its so witty and concise it puts James Bond to shame.
  5. well then differences of man and women are metaphysical by nature, now metaphysical conditions can lead to different value-judgments and that leads to different subconscious evaluations (psychology is the study of the subconscious from a medical perspective) and emotions, in that sense they will have a different psychology but to say a women will respond because she is a women implies that values are intrinsic and women evaluate them innately. Though it is reasonable to say a women that you will want to be with will hold the same values but evaluate things differently because you are metaphy
  6. this is a thread where everyone post there best original jokes. This is not a barroom conversation it is a collection of particulars for a theory of humor i am developing. My current theory states that the humor is the metaphysical negation of a proposition. When applied on moral proposition it is ridicule. That is why the villains in Atlas Shrugged make you laugh, especially with the reality of the heroes. So please post jokes and analyze them to your explanations if you want.
  7. he answered "someone has to keep him". i dont think he felt too much compassion for him. He probably did it from a sense of duty.
  8. Leonid This would be purely compassion if it was done on a moral choice. The fact of the matter (that i did not state well enough) is that the dog was fed on dogmatic principle. My dad even pointed out to one time that his family did not have much food to eat yet decided to put priority of the dog first. Frankly i do not think that the family (at least my father) really liked the dog.
  9. While talking to my father he reminisced that while growing up with his family, a Latvian pro-soviet emigrant, they had a custom to feed the dog before everyone else stated to eat. The justification was that the dog had no way to feed itself. This is the most ridiculous example of altruism and the morality of sacrifice I could find in my personal knowledge.
  10. just finished reading epistemology in OPAR. only a taste of the challenge in IOE.

  11. Thank you for your warm welcome. i know most democracies hold these ideas but in Israel its much worse. no democratic country has been influenced by Communism as much as Israel. on one side there are the leftist socialist and on the other religious rightist. Its only a contrast of Juadastic religious zeal altruism and socialist-Marxist altruism where the secular right lip services "freer markets" so the millatry could claim it in time of need (or on whim) and an Palestinian Islam totalitarianism. a 4 way selection of Statism. the worse part is the consensuses that man owes his life (and pr
  12. HandlyHandle ​the largest(at their time) was the Shomer Ha'Tzair which means in literal translation the young protector. For my knowledge they were mostly in Kibutzes (Kibutz is a collective village governed by communistic political principles) and in some cities. The dinning hall was as "theirs" that can be in a society with above minimal property rights. This was from the early 50's to the mid 70's. I know this from some anecdotal records of people that lived and participated in the group and historic records i was exposed to. The group is a youth movement (which even today are popular i
