  1. In other news: Berlin rejoices as General Secretary Merkel seems to have come to terms with Comrade Schulz.
  2. if the government wouldn’t have gotten involved, these children would have jobs and could actually afford a doctor themselves
  3. people weren’t starving in East Germany though. Or in Yugoslavia. Edit: right. Sorry. More single posts
  4. That's the Independent's headline, though, Oxfam uses 'bagged' and 'went to' which shouldn't be anything for you to get upset over - https://www.oxfam.org/en/pressroom/pressreleases/2018-01-22/richest-1-percent-bagged-82-percent-wealth-created-last-year It isn't. I'm just tweaking Ben here. I always get a kick out of hearing the commie types cry about how one kid got more cookies than another.ah come on, put in some effort here. The complaint is that one kid makes the cookies and the other one gets (almost) all of them just because he owns the oven. Then tell the kid that makes the cookies to

  6. Me and milions around the world. Please enlighten me what this slogan means. the fight to obtain and preserve gun rights is fought much more fiercely than the one to obtain and preserve women’s rights.

  8. "It helped spark the sharpest increase in the number of billionaires ever recorded, to 2,043, with one created every two days" This cannot be right. After all one cannot become billionaire other than by inheritance right Ben? huh? I never doubted that people can become rich.
  9. You have a very poor understanding of slogans

  11. Would someone explain to me in what way the civil rights act was abominable? In detail, i mean
  12. https://youtu.be/B6nI1v7mwwA Who would’ve thought that the one thing this forum could agree upon is that Marx was right?
  13. „Hey, lets talk about Trump. No, not the devastating effects he already had on the environment, national unity, international relations or American political culture. Let’s rather talk about his weight.”
  14. yeah, the degree of niceness of the French can... vary. But it is Europe’s most beautiful city
  15. I’d go to Athens. Or Paris. Go to Paris
  16. I’m sure the cat had a fulfilled life. After all, what else matters? My condolences
  17. Sure, but that's not the question here. The question is the people who DID harm someone. You can say anything, but I think (hope?) you would never send your kid to a school where a convicted sex offender is teaching or send your daughter to an interview with Harvey Weinstein even after he finishes his eventual sentence. I think this one is getting away from you Ben. If they've never offended then they'd never be on a sex offender registry unless you guys have some kind of pre-crime unit like in Minority Report yeah, I was kinda getting off the rails
  18. see, this is a poorly chosen example. Tigers have to kill to live; pedophiles don’t have to follow up on their desires. If a pedophile never does anything even remotely illegal, then it is of course immoral to exclude him from society. Society gains nothing from it, but he looses practically everything that enables his existence as an individual. No gain, lots of harm. Again, with convicts, this might be different and I frankly don’t know enough about how pedophilia works to make a sensible assessment. But excluding someone for being a pedophile (not for the act of raping children)
  19. A pedophile who has never harmed anyone obviously has the same access to everything as anyone else. Why is this a question? In all likelihood, we’ll never even know this guy was a pedophile.
  20. being attracted to children is not the same as raping them though. I did clarify my previous post though And I think it’s very debatable to what extend or if at all employees should have insight into ones criminal history. If criminals can’t find jobs, they’ll stay criminals.
  21. I was responding to this (it sounds like he thinks that it is the bad part?): The data includes pedophiles and especially severe rapists. Furthermore, any school employing one of these people is threatened with fines or prison. it underlines the severeness of the issue. If you actually publicly threaten someone if they should employ pedophiles, that won’t exactly help the pedophiles to lead a normal lifeSo lets get this stright, you are ok with pedophiles being employed in schools? I’m perfectly fine with a pedophile (being, someone who is attracted to children) being employed at a school.
  22. Sooooo, the crime should be punished but not the criminal? How would that work? We put murder in prison but not the murderer? BTW. Isn't "You people" a racists term? no, we punish someone for the crimes he committed, not the ones he might presumably commit in the future. We punish someone for the rape he committed. After he served his time in jail, he’s a free man. No further punishment. Thus, we punish him for the act (raping) rather than his personal history (being a rapist). If the latter was the case, this would mean a life long sentence and societal isolation. Rapists are capable of

  24. Hah! We can’t talk about economics without people telling me big government will lead to a dictatorship. Yet when government effectively declares its own citizens vogelfrei (a term I can’t find a good translation for; means that laws no longer protect a person and anyone can do anything with them), that’s somehow ok? Being a pedophile is not a crime. Raping children is. Similarly, being a murderer is not a crime, murdering is. Etc. Tell me, how do you imagine people who are on these lists ever going to live the life they are entitled to? “We believe these truths to be inalienable”. That t
