    Have to disagree there. Violence begets more violence. Dealing with them 'as nature intended' simply creates a cycle of hatred and retribution. Sadly I think there is no way to possibly prevent things like this from happening in a free and open society. It's the price we pay for not living in a totalitarian police state. That said, I think the best weapon to combat the ideology of terror is to maintain our civility, values, and empathy.

    One thing that is bugging me is that there are simply too many quests coming at you all the time. It's overwhelming! It's great to have so many things to do, but it can feel unfocused sometimes. I think I just need to do what I want and not worry about 'clearing the level' before moving on. :)

    I'd do this for anyone in the same situation man or woman, so never-mind what she says or her chip on shoulder 3rd wave postmodern gobbledegook feminisms, keep doing it, it's merely basic consideration.

    Right, pleased to report the 2.3 Beta is launching properly after the Notepad++ edit.

    So far I've played ME two nights in a row for about 5 hours straight. For me that's extremely unusual. :) It definitely has me hooked, although I agree with some of the critique of the game. Still, it's fun and engaging, and that's what's important for me.

    Yeah, illness/sudden disability, loss of a job, bereavement, general suffering in life that everyone bears, getting older, rejection, divorce, that gives it meaning and that cannot be explained away or denied by isms as 'constructs of society', to use the most familiar postmodern ones. (As JBP puts it, "There's nothing more real than your own pain.")

    "Ideological Possession", as Jordan B Peterson coins it, is oft curable by a catastrophic or unavoidable collision with a life reality, existential crisis or tragedy that an aspect of the ideology cannot resolve.

    I gather hatred of women and others, like Misanthropy are in the DSM-IV (The 'misos' appear connected to Nihilism) as are rare phobias of religion or homosexuality that are commonly mass diagnosed by non-psychiatrists in the general public

    By definition all ideology is incomplete, being pseudo-intellectual baubles that occupy those that cannot -or unable to learn to - think. You cannot assume an ought from an is. The most pathological ideologies are those that are fundamentally based on the implicit assumption that one's knowledge is complete - for if your knowledge is complete you have become God. It is not -I would imagine- necessary, or perhaps should be necessary for me to explain why this is a road to Abaddon.

    Well I'm the kind of guy that likes to take an idea over to the light to have a damned good long look at it, or like to treat more or less every issue like a toaster - turn it upside down and shake it till all the crumbs fall out.

    I've noticed an odd thing in examining issues with both Socialist-leaning friends and Conservative leaning friends: The former tend to dislike a forensic debate and lose friends doing so, the latter tend to relish and seek out a damn good vigorous, forensic debate, and make new or strengthen friendships doing so.

    Why not? Are they not scrutinisable forensically, are they so dangerous that they cannot be faced and defeated in debate To not do so is either Bigotry. or Debate cowardice. Chicken Buk-buk-buuuuk! If you like, there is always someone that is unaware that it is an "oblate spheroid", to quote Stephen Fry.
