you see if I say, "well some people get too much for doing only self interest, so they should get less" then that is actually being fairer for them too, so its a bit like a catch 22 situation.
OK I am going to go with "some people have gone so much beyond the pale in others eyes that one must go for the percieved fairness to all....e.g. genocidal war criminals, should they really be given a fair trial (if there is the chance of them getting off and of further continued bloodshed or blood feuds carrying on......sometimes one might have to be practical about this......e.g. the killings of ceaucescue and mussolini probably prevented a lot of further nastyness for the survivors.......I dont normally hold with 'the good of the many outweigh the good of the few' dilemmas (as there always seems to be a third option) but in these two cases then i think its fair enough (ditto with fred west being made to kill himself)

for instance, one might, live in a culture (a) that has acknowledged that another group of people (b) have the same rights as themselves, but then another culture (c) might actually deny this other groups rights. Now since some cultures might be somewhat aligned racially (cos thats how they historically emerged) then (a) might criticise group (b) and this action can be described as racist.
Now of course in this case it is the intent that actually defines whether (a) is being racist (intent is often described as not being prerequisit to racism....this is often the truth, but it can also be untrue) so If (a) hates (b) and just uses the example of (b) persecuting (c) as a weopon against (b) then this is racist, but if (a) was genuinely thinking about (c) then this is not racism, of course it is more mixed up than this.......hmm this whole being anti lefty is more difficult than i thought
it's giving me all sorts of images that no-one anywhere needs
what were these images....pm me if you are wary of other disers sensibilities
Left is right.
simply by parroting the empty rhetoric used by any of the Tory politicians who held office at any point in the past.
Maybe adding in some nice and quotable hysterical scenarios of the alternatives, maybe using the standard 'think of the children' approach. Or using large words, preferably slightly out of context to cause further confusion in the reader.
Obfuscating logic using terror language and foggy reference points. Maybe drifting from the original topic to something completely different.
In short, you failed to argue for something you don't believe in as you didn't think like a politician.
to show that i am not just a blinkered leftie.....without just play acting, but actually for real.....i fail
what does this mean, that im right? or that I just have psychological distrubance when i think of teachers..............like what i get when i think of nuns
please someone, teach me
Almost without exception.
no....seriously i cannot really find objections to healthcare....I think that you are paying slightly over the odds for the camera shoving though
WHilst there, avoid getting robbed, but also go to A&E and tell them about your perilous and deep rectum.
They'll shove a camera up there as quick as you like and not charge you for it.
It must be true, I saw it on that film with the fat man in it.
