Charles, while I like your ideal, it’s not how life works. So others don’t rule us we need to be powerful. That means rulling others.To a certain extand it’s be enslaved or enslave. It’s the natural order the strong get favors from the weak. It set bad precedent and getting less and less, but I won’t hold my breath till it’s gone completely.
By the way, I bet the chinese emperor that lingchi guys that criticize his traveling is not really the one getting “offended”. Qing emperors were quite moderate except the last one (which is female acting as emperor). The one that suggest that the emperors should get offended is his political advisor.
So by getting offended the muslims pretty much do the same strategy that political advisors would advice. The same way by pretending that they’re idiots, you too would do same thing a political advisor would advice.
Now that’s what I called emotional intelligence.
Of course, getting offended is actually very smart because it can be used as a loophole to squelch freedom of speech. The same way something that smart can’t be idiotic. But we don’t know that. We just pretend what things are the way the arguments go. What’s really going on is we all are doing really really smart strategies to maximize what we want, at the expense of others’ interests.
And John, if you think capitalistic countries tend to lead to psychopathy, you haven’t seen the other cultures.
Mao Tze Tung, for example, swim with 50 young naked women while his people commit cannibalism out of starvation.
The issue is not that people are psychopaths. They always behave as they are anyway. Nothing will change that. What reproduce reproduce. It’s the rule of evolution for trilions of oyears.
The issue is you don’t properly align those reproductive success with productivity.
