    I still refuse to call it "evil". I think that's too simplistic a term to describe something and I also think it's overused. So it's more of a personal preference with me.

    Certainly not. There are some incredibly stupid people out there. Death is the only true equalizer.

    Yeah. For the fourth time, it isn't about your "personal views of living." It's about the rules you favor imposing on everyone. But you're obviously never going to acknowledge that.
    Then I don't have any views that I favor imposing on everyone. I can only base my political views on my own personal views. I'm not here to change any minds, I'm here to express my own personal opinion.

    As such, I'm off this merry-go-round.
    Have fun!

    Because we can do way more than other animals can do. There's no doubt that there is higher intrinsic value to humans than there are to cats. Not saying you should run around beating cats, but if it comes down between the death of a human or a cat, I'm taking the human. Maybe it's personal bias, but animals don't have lawyers and can't argue for themselves being anything more than property.

    Thats quite hypocritical if you ask me.

    Reading this between the debate about what is good and evil made me laugh.

    Stop defending them and stop defending bull**** appeasment.

    1% is too damn many. Accept it.

    Piracy is going to be punished severely. The Somali government (if you can call it that) WILL assist in ending the piracy OR THEY WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT.
    Will you cut the emotional bull****? It's getting quite old. Formulate an argument or refrain from posting.

    Obviously you are clueless about the issue. The Nazis definitely knew what they were doing was evil. Why do you think they tried so hard to HIDE it and deny that it ever happened?

    My favorite Nazi excuse during the Nuremburg trials; I vas merely following orders.

    Good lord dude, at least make an attempt to be obtuse without being so obvious.

    Luckily, planting mines or bombing villages are not our only options.

    Okay there you have it folks, dclxvinoise refuses to call evil, evil so now we can move on.

    Translation; I know you are but what am I?

    Because they knew others would not agree with their plans. That does not mean that the Nazis thought they were wrong, simply that they thought everyone else was wrong.
