That’s probably too big of a conversation. I don’t know when that audio clip was recorded, but it’s likely been in the neighbourhood of a couple of decades since. A lot has happened since then—enough to let us know that language does matter for quite a few reasons (though that doesn’t contradict Carlin here). While ‘PC’ changes aren’t always i…[Read more]

I think you’re missing Mearsheimer’s point on hegemony. It’s not about winning battles, it’s about national survival in the long term. The U.S. has been hegemonic since WW2, but if it doesn’t get past these bank failures and avoid the depression that may follow, the “petrodollar” may give way to the “petroruble,” “petroyuan,” or a BRICS…[Read more]

Anyone “woke” should take notice:
I like Carlin, but in this case, no, not really. I won’t say he’s 100% wrong. It can slow conversation for people who become paralyzed looking for the right term so as to avoid criticism. But he’s missing or deliberately cutting out so much of the conversation that it comes off as misguided and naï…[Read more]

Word salad schtick?
I resemble that remark.

You think Mearsheimer talks nonsense? He talks perfect sense. For example (and this covers your “moral and ethical strictures”) he points out that governments act in their country’s interest before they consider international law. In other words, the only way a country can preserve its own safety and security (in theory, anyway) is to ac…
