    No because we need to "compare & constrast" otherwise we are a "stepford" society.

    Re: Would You Eradicate All Persons Who Don't Subscribe To Your Political Philosophy?

    I'm holding to the truth that my ignored points highlight.

    I would eradicate many, starting with Syria, etc.

    We're human.

    Give me absolute power, and you will know absolute terror.

    Give you absolute power, and we will know absolute terror.

    Power corrupts.

    All of those who say they wouldn't are lying to you and themselves.

    How many with such eclipsing and unrestrained power haven't caused terror?

    For a fact I know people would not only be highly tempted, but would also mold the world as they see fit.

    This thread demands that one has absolute power, or at least a level of power that seems that way. We're talking of eradicating people. Scattering them across the four corners of oblivion.

    How many of us have ever killed insects merely because we were annoyed? We felt powerful enough to do so, and so we did. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. You are NO exception. With such intoxicating power, our possibilities broaden, our desires can be manifested as reality, and the person itself changes.

    So as I am ignored and disappointed, I say this:

    Do NOT lie to yourself or others. It's unbecoming of you. You have never had such power. You are not an exception to the intoxication of absolute power.
    I disagree completely, wake.

    I LIKE people in general. Its been my experience that most people agree more than they disagree, are more alike than different.

    MOST of the people here I generally strongly disagree with have SOMETHING I agree with them about COMPLETELY.

    Never forget that historically the "best" form of government for the majority of a society has occurred under a "benevolent despot". Someone with absolute power who actually has everybody's best interests in mind when making decisions.

    Compassion is apparently genetic and is one of the primary things that brought us from the savannah to the moon.

    I agree.Lucius Cornelius Sulla comes to mind.
    But how often does someone like him come along?

    You can say this because you've never had the power to eradicate legions of people you don't agree with.

    Do you know yourself so we that such extreme temptations, like overwhelming power, will not sway or change you?

    The power to eradicate millions of people is not controlled power.

    The benevolent despots had their power controlled.

    I'm not an asshole for no reason.

    My boys were kept in a small 3 bedroom apartment with 4 adults and 2 other children. One adult was their mother. One was her boyfriend, the same person she was cheating on me with. One was a violent felon. The 4th was the felon's baby-mama.

    I have documented evidence, witch will see it's day in court, proving that my children were being abused while living there.

    On the average day, their mother was either doped up on prescriptions for her clinically diagnosed manic-depressive bi-polar disorder and chronic pain from arthritis in the back and fibromyalgia, or suffering from the pain. 90% of the time she was either asleep or not mentally there.

    I've personally sat with the man she cheated on me with, in his living room, for hours. From his own mouth I learned that that their relationship was over before it really started, that he and his felon brother kept my X around for the sol purpose of using her to pay their bills.

    The only income my X has had for the last 3 years is food stamps and child-support.

    SD issued my X over $500 worth of food stamps every month, yet the only thing my children were eating was macaroni and romin.

    She took off before I got back from Fort Leonard Wood. I've spent a small fortune on lawyers and PIs tracking her down, and as soon as I locate her, she plays nice for a few days and disappears again. Today she's in CA. She doesn't know that I know, but she will soon.

    There is nothing you can type into your post that will slake my deep hatred. There is no logically convincing me of the error of my ways. I can not be converted.

    You have no argument in support of her actions which will gain any ground with me.

    The father in me is an injured dog, and if touched, even with the best of intentions, you will lose a few fingers.
    Jerry, there is no question that your situation with your X is aweful and unfair, and I truly hope that you get your kids and things get better for you. They'd be served much better being with you. I just wish you would stop projecting your anger out on folks here and positions that you don't agree with. Regardless of what you think, they are not analogous and don't deserve it.

    Yes, yes I do.

    I'm not attracted to power. i've had it and dont care for it. It comes with too much responsibility.

    I do not consider myself worthy to make decisions for others.

    I have left jobs because they tried to promote me over someone who had been waiting/training for the positions in question and clearly needed the promotion in question more than I did.

    Compassion, bro. Some people are just born with it.

    Far too rarely.

    I am not convinced that people with near God-like power would not change to accomplish their most internal desires.
