    I've just taken a reading and I've lost 2.5% of my humanity by reading the last two pages. :(

    If I keep reading moggin posts, pretty soon I'll be wanting to employ child soldiers or implement final solutions. ;)

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    @RedSparrows you first, i will counter. ;)
    i am doing this only because I need a break from work.

    If we take the proposition 'It Seems Humanitarian Civilizations Has Been Destroyed A Long Time Ago' as the basis for our 'discussion', and then have your addendum that 'humanity is losing its humanity', we shall proceed.

    I refute this. My reasons is that it ignores history, good and ill.

    This can be broken up into a few points:

    1) It ignores historical events, periods and 'concrete facts'.
    2) It is a perfect example of the misreading of 'society' and 'systems' known as the 'West' (I admit, this is more targeted at you than the original statement).
    3) It's bollocks.

    Details/thoughts:

    A) History is littered with tragedy, individual to group. I will not list events, but you only have to pick up a book on pre-AD China, or pre-historic human society, to understand violence on a mass scale, or at a high ratio, is not a new/recent invention.
    B) Our concepts of moral humanity/humanism/humanitarianism are relatively recent, and are upheld and fought for by as many countless examples as those of horror and misery - right up the this very second.
    C) Such a statement is linguistically/epistemologically unsound (if we take its meaning over the grammatical errors).
    D) It exhibits a strange approach to the notion of humanity, as though it is a collective resource that is being squandered. Needless to say, this is limited.
    E) Why the fuck am I bothering?

    I think you missed a trick by not putting "ergo" in there somewhere.

    My boss has just come back from Iran and actually complained about the terrible internet access. I guess this might explain it.

    It's actually quite interesting getting an inside view from someone who goes to Iran from time to time. Biggest comment being the levels of corruption are off the scale and a real shock to the system. You literally cannot do anything with out having to bribe someone

    The suggestion that the human race is more cunty now than it's ever been before is preposterous.

    Bit like Russia, from what I understand.

    Doing simple things like renewing your driving license, for example, can be a nightmare in such situations.

    I've heard bad things about the requirement to bribe in Italy, even. Looks like we're just shit at corruption in the UK.

    I rememeber when some people went over to China to demonstrate web browsing some new mobile phones about a decade ago. Their demonstranstration page was... BBC news. Demo didn't work so well, funnily enough.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
