I am very much against corporatism also, just if given only the option of corporatism or socialism, I would chose corporatism. But my preference would be neither, and at present, the "right" are allies of convenience against the socialism of the left.
    Yes, there's a unified Right. It's called "the Right." They may not have the numbers you like, but that doesn't equate to them not existing. True enough about the Right - they are essentially, the party that is against the Left - is that really a platform, though? That's not helping a situation.Come up with your own solution, not just denouncing the other guy's. Both parties, however, are useless, corrupt, and idiotic.

    The freedom of religion has prevented countless millions from being murdered and persecuted under the laws of the most powerful organizations of men. It is so important that it is a guaranteed right in our Constitution, while the "mandate to evolve" has put forth actions that have taken place in such wonderful locations as Darfur, Rwanda, Germany, the USSR, and Bosnia.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    What I supprt I have indicated reeatedly and clearly in this thread: That schools should teach cildren reading, writing, mathematics, science, history, geography, etc. - i.e. the skills they need - and that the teaching of morality is something that should be left to parents, family, friends, etc.
    reeatedly? Cildren?
    If bullying is happening in a classroom, are you suggesting that the teacher should not espouse tolerance, but rather send the children home to talk with their parents; some of whom may be bullies themselves?

    Did you attend "Back to School Night"? Not a single year did I not receive a copy of such standards. Further I had to sign a copy as well as my progeny.

    You can extrapolate certain reasonings from science that would conflict with religion, but the compartmentalized study of a discipline is not religious or atheistic. If your fear is that science itself is a threat to religion (I might be inclined to agree) then you have a completely different problem.

    Are you suggesting that Sir Isaac Newton, who invented physics in 1665 was promoting and supporting atheism?

    I do not consider science itself a threat to religion. I do, however, consider atheists presenting science a threat to religion. Does that make sense?
