Again with the relativism where no truth exist. I pity you.
Please, you're coming off as the right wing equivalent of Bruce (OK, with better grammar, spelling and fewer inane smilies) and frankly have been for some time. I find it hard to believe that's what you're aiming for but if it is please let me know.
99% of the time when people complain about 'relativism' they don't have a clue what it means and it's because someone has just challenged them and they don't have an asterisking clue how to respond so are looking for a cheap bail out that allows them to not wonder why they don't have an asterisking clue how to respond. Yeah, you're somewhat better than the hard edge SJWs are because you aren't trying to impose your views on others* but so what, if you think being mildly better than people you deride is great then you don't have very high aspirations at all and should accept that others are going to point it out. Which is pretty much exactly what TN was saying about GG. "There are no wrong tactics, only wrong targets" is a load of bollocks no matter who says it.
*though it has to be stressed, often those labelled as sjws aren't actually trying to impose their views either but just hold a 'progressive' view point.
Zora its not nice to insult people on a forum. You need to consider the impact harsh words from someone of your statue and influence may have
But Meshugger this allows me to comment because its weird but I have wanted to say something for exactly the reason Zora alluded to, I do see this criticism you are receiving from people like TN and Zora as something I went through and go through and I can identify with you ..even though you are on the opposite of me in some things . So here is something positive
You will receive criticism when you start following your own path around certain topics on a forum and in RL, the secret is to understand its part of your journey and its actually healthy. You just need to really believe what you say....if you don't believe it then thats fine but you need to take there advice
Now I'm not going to analyse what TN said to you but I can use Zora as an example of what I mean ( sorry Zora but you did open yourself up to this and I do need to give an example for Meshuggers sake )
I don't dislike Zora, he is very intelligent, well informed, he has a good sense of humor and he is prepared to go into detail in a debate but he is fundamentally anti-Western and this is also his greatest weakness. He constantly tries to find examples of events that will undermine the West and I will never pander to unfounded anti-Western sentiment so I have had numerous debates with him and seen him have debates with others. And yet he has never been right about one example of " this is going to really hurt the West " because his bias blinds him to the obvious reality ...The West despite its flaws is the most effective ideology in the world and is superior to any other system of government or current ideology and a person like Zora just can't accept this
So for example in the past he has debated
- The Ukraine conflict will lead to Russian dominance
- The Russian economy will not be impacted by sanctions and falling oil price
- The Greek austerity crisis will shatter the EU as the EU is being unfair
- Merkel and Germany has utterly destroyed the EU by allowing refugees in
- The accusation that Turkey is buying ISIS oil is true and will end the anti-ISIS coalition
- Turkey had no right to shoot the Russian plane down and now Russia will make them suffer
I can go on and on but you get my point, so understand you will also end up debating with people who criticize you but in most cases you will prove them wrong, Now that doesn't mean you target people on purpose or be malicious or gloat
But in summary you need to believe and understand what you post ...and realize you are now in a world where it is normal to get into numerous debates
