    If someone says:

    All <such> people should be killed!

    Is the idea that all such people should be killed dangerous? Why is the idea dangerous? Morons are dangerous. Ideas don't hurt anyone. If you are going to blame ideas, you'd might as well blame a table. The person saying such a thing is engaging in hate speech, and that is dangerous. But the idea, no matter how many morons blame it for their actions, remains harmless and blameless - just like a table.



    Don't blame inanimate objects; that's nonsense; people will indict your table. No blaming religion, beer or any other mystical objects.

    Take responsiblilty for one's actions and expect the same from others. Blaming tables is one step away from blaming voices in one's head.

    Ideas are not inanimate objects. They are ideas that people take interest in and follow. Would you have no problem with such ideas being advertised in libraries? School? Come now, ideas are not dangerous.

    Ideas are inanimate objects. I have no more problem with any idea being in a library than I would any table.

    They are no more threatening than the voices in someone's head, and no more responsible for actions.

    A look into the worst ignorance-driven garbage to be vomited out of man's fear. That doesn't make them dangerous, or responsible for anything.

    OK...

    Then there must be no problem having such ideas in the library or teaching them to kids...?

    I will grant you ecofarm that your point is interesting.

    I don't know. I think the idea of enacting genocide is dangerous as a part of a political platform eg Nazism esp. to the genocidee. Just like the idea of consuming large amounts of arsenic is fairly dangerous.

    We'll just have to agree that you are scared of inanimate objects.



    Keep passing the open windows.

    True, stimulated thoughts (ideas) in and of themselves are harmless, but they could turn dangerous and cause destructive behavior.

    IMO stimulated thoughts have five intensity levels.

    1. Not important enough to dwell on

    2. Should do something but don't know what

    3. Do whatever needs to be done

    4. Respond with angry words or threats

    5. Strike back physically
