I don't know. In Star Trek as soon as they fixed society by eliminating money, poverty, hunger and war, they went off and started new wars with the Romulans and Klingons. So solving world problems just causes worse ones.

Really? as if we have all kinds of Alien races to go start wars with

We also don't have a magic wand to fix world poverty either. The point is that humans are generally not capable of being happy or satisfied so there will always be something to bitch about.

and there also unintended consequences.

Must be? elaborate on how you drew that conclusion

Do I really have to? Come on bro.

Maybe I'm Jewish and wishing that it's a world issue I want to disappear.

Just because I said Israel doesn't mean I meant kill it!

Well perhaps you should elaborate when such things can be misinterpreted.

Irrationality.

@GazaAli said:

In today's world and its unprecedented collective affluence and abundance in commodities, poverty does not exist as a problem in itself. Think of it only as a symptom or as an expression of more serious and real underlying problems, namely injustice.

What an incredibly simple minded, detail-free and useless statement that is.

Par for the course.

I like how his attempt at a witty reply just shows that he doesn't understand what the word "irrationality" means. Really typical post for him.

@Barbariser: If you can't see how your initial tirade makes you irrational then you are irrational par excellence. To lash out at a completely benign, inoffensive and harmless comment that had nothing to do with you in the first place whatsoever most probably because of some unrelated disagreement we once had is quite irrational to say the least. It means you're the kind of individual that would cling to grudges and would allow them to cloud his judgement. Such an individual is bound to be irrational, it is inevitable. Impulses and reason cannot exist together.

Its pretty ironic really, you just require the capacity to appreciate it.

@GazaAli: Why can't I go and comment on other posts in the same topic? The comment on your poverty thing doesn't have anything to do with your homophobia, I would still find that statement overly simplistic no matter what you thought elsewhere. Also, your fairly long paragraph filled with accusations, judgments and assumptions about my personal motives is much more of a "tirade" than either of my posts in this thread.

You're right, a magic wand won't fix world poverty. However, the poor arming themselves and stealing the wealth of the world back from the hoarders could be a good start ;) Oh, crap I ain't got the money for ammo.

I agree with your second sentence to a degree, I'll fully agree if you change the word "humans" to "females". The human race has never been to that point where it could be considered happy and as one. If we kept moving in that direction then one day the only thing left to bitch about would be being happy.

You certainly can. But when you get mad and lose your temper at a harmless and inoffensive comment that was not even directed to you, I'm inclined to believe that you're not maintaining a semblance of objectivity or neutrality.

Regardless, I think my long paragraph had a fine line of reasoning so really I can't see how someone could mistake it for a tirade filled with accusations, judgements and assumptions. I urge you to reexamine it and you may be able to appreciate the irony and logic in it.

I wrote one line pointing out that one of the things you wrote is an overly simple and meaningless statement. Your 5-sentence paragraph talks about how I'm supposedly "lashing out at you" over a past disagreement (this is an assumption and an accusation, and it's also not true) and how this shows that I'm an irrational, grudge-holding person (judgment based on an untrue assumption).

Yes, I can certainly see the irony in your posts, it's pretty prominent and obvious actually. There's also a shitton of irony in the fact that you're criticizing my "objectivity" while still thinking that my one line remark is a "tirade" while your baseless rant is a "fine line of reasoning". :/

I mean, that's a massive demonstration of bias blindness right there.

I actually replied to that one line with hardly two words. Then you proceeded further to discredit me for no obvious reason, even though I didn't really bother replying to your original unwarranted rant. Let me demonstrate to you how we got here:

Barbariser "What an incredibly simple minded, detail-free and useless statement that is."

GazaAli "Oh you" (highlighting your choice of eliminating irrationality in an attempt to point out the irony given your initial rant).

Barbariser (To master_live) "I like how his attempt at a witty reply just shows that he doesn't understand what the word "irrationality" means. Really typical post for him."

Afterwards, I proceeded to explain to you how you are being irrational in the context of this topic and how your irrationality must be the result of past disagreements which is a pretty straightforward conclusion to reach, given your aggressiveness. It must be noted that your claim that you wrote one line statement and I reciprocated with a 5 line rant is misleading which is pitiful to be honest with you. In any case, you then decided to take the "boo hoo, you're being judgy, stop accusing me" route instead of actually reexamining your unmistakable and unwarranted hostility which again is bound to make you irrational; you're not going to be the one to change the fundamental laws of human behavior and psyche.

If you truly believe in your own twisted and disingenuous interpretation of things then I should persuade you no further.

I also hope that one day Capitalism and the worldwide money system will be replaced by a more socialistic system.

Worldwide Capitalism is a coercive system in that it forces people to work extremely hard from the age in which they are 20 to the age of 67 when they retire and all this great exertion is just to die from old age eventually.

What I mean by this is that people are being forced to work extremely hard for 47 years of their life just to die from old age after all their pension money has been wasted.

Most healthy people usually die around the age of 90 (more or less). And because no one wants to hire old people, after all their pension money is wasted all they can do now is just die because they have no pension money left and no one will hire them because of their old age. It's a terrible system.

I hope that one day Capitalism and the global money system will be replaced by a more socialistic system and maybe later even by communism and anarchism eventually.

Nope, your five line argument is a justification for why you think my original post is ironic. In this context, shooting down your ridiculous assertion that my original post was a "rant", "aggressive" or motivated by a "grudge" is quite valid. And even if you accept that it was a reply to my second statement, my second statement is still three times shorter than your paragraph, and is about agreeing with somebody else about your posting habits. :/

Yeah, my interpretation is supposed to be "twisted" and "disingenuous" even though you're the one trying to argue that a one line sentence or the two line sentence afterwards is a "tirade" or "rant" while saying that your baseless assumptions and ass-pulls are "finely reasoned". You should take your own advice and reexamine what you say; I know you're not very good at actually differentiating between a logical statement and an illogical statement, but at least you should be able to figure out that you're not even using half of your words properly.

#89 Posted by GazaAli (22491 posts) -

@Barbariser: Upon reexamination of the definition of the word "tirade", it seems that I indeed used the word in an improper context. I thought it to be synonymous with rant. You could have made yourself useful and pointed that out instead of continuing your outburst of anger. You would have contributed something of actual value but I guess that's not your area of expertise.

As for your actual reasoning, its stunningly flawed. If there was any chance that you would listen to reason you would have done so already as what we have been disputing so far is quite simple and clear that it does not afford multiple interpretations or any ambiguity. However, you're entitled to irrationality, so carry on.

I did point out that my posts aren't really "tirades", literally in the third post. And I didn't make a "rant" either. o_0 Also, lol at the "actual value" thing. Firstly, this is the off topic section of a gaming forum and secondly, if that was really that important to you, you would have replied "my statement wasn't useless, simple, .etc and here's why" instead of going "oh you".

Why can't I go and comment on other posts in the same topic? The comment on your poverty thing doesn't have anything to do with your homophobia, I would still find that statement overly simplistic no matter what you thought elsewhere. Also, your fairly long paragraph filled with accusations, judgments and assumptions about my personal motives is much more of a "tirade" than either of my posts in this thread.

My reasoning is extremely simple: you're arguing that I am "irrational" because I made a "tirade in anger as a result of past grudges". I didn't make a tirade, I wasn't angry, and I would have had the same opinion no matter what you posted here in the past, ergo your argument is based on false premises and its conclusion is not substantiated.

That's what logical statement looks like, not this "you're obviously irrational and angry because you're obviously irrational and angry and if you can't see that then that just means you're too irrational and angry to be persuaded" thing you've got going on.

#91 Posted by GazaAli (22491 posts) -

@Barbariser: Well, I didn't want to take this far with you because based on my rationale that you're holding a grudge on me and based on my past experiences with you, I knew it would have come to this yelling contest and looking at our replies so far, I wasn't mistaken after all.

Let's take a step backwards and try to do this some other way. First let me ask you a very simple question and depending on your answer we may be able to continue: Were your initial responses to my simple and inoffensive statement hostile, aggressive and/or "ranty" or not? If you were not a participant in this quarrel, but a bystander, and you witnessed someone replying to my statement to this topic in the same way you did in the first page of this topic, wouldn't you say that he's being hostile or aggressive for no apparent reason?

No? If someone quotes you and says that one of your claims is simplistic and useless, the "apparent reason" is probably that he/she thinks the claim is simplistic and useless, not because he/she hates you and wants to destroy your internet reputation or something.
