  • Hard News: The place where things happen…, in reply to BenWilson,

    I suggest that it’s how a whole lot of people think.

    You, anyone can never know that, for sure. Unless you have the paper work on hand? But surveys are often a blunt instrument, too often.
    Introspection should never be about what others are thinking tho, examining oneself, when drunk maybe. Prejudices, attitudes reflected in one’s thoughts, words and action.
    And admitting when your wrong, now thats a biggie.
    Going for the ‘well a lot of people think like me’ Even if your blessing something positive. kinda blows ...chillax

  • Hard News: The place where things happen…, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Maybe only individuals can conceive those goods because those goods are individual.

    Interesting point, and seeing as we're generalizing(cause thats what ya do at conferences, unless someones got something earthshattering to say on a subject).
    All people and animals, yes, will experience something a high?
    But seeing as we're talking 'umans here that general something is where understanding it runs into individuals.

    Perhaps we could all have a smoke and talk about it, yes all of us. Figure out a lot of stuff thats going Kablooey. Buckle up for the next few centuries as this GW thing runs through our planet. Dont know where that word worm "navel gazing is boring" came about. When in certain states of mind...

    Oh thats right! we've got all those fats cats that need supporting.
    What was I thinking...

  • Up Front: Cui bono?, in reply to Emma Hart,

    Excellent post.

    It's the system itself.

    Its predicated on thinking the worst of other people, and having an angelic view of ones self. Ego protection on a grand scale, it sucks!

  • Hard News: Labour's medical cannabis…, in reply to BenWilson,

    flaccid

    Yeah well lets not mock old men vicariously but I kinda meant behaviours, as in mental straitjackets of behaviour.
    If you've ever seen a person who has never had acid take it and try and keep control of everything, even when the walls and floor start going all wavy and everything rotates and turns into a colour spectrum.
    Its a sight.;-)
    but anyhoo

  • Hard News: Labour's medical cannabis…, in reply to linger,

    proposed use of psilocybin

    ?

    , psychedelics have the potential for use in breaking down the pathologically rigid behaviours

    Yeah give it to the pathologically rigid, take your pick...

    the end of the capitalist banquet,

    There's still a few scraps laying about the dining table.
    Seems these fuckers have a suction fitting for their orifice.
    All the better to hoover up those last scraps

  • Polity: Eleventy billion dollars!, in reply to Matthew Hooton,

    how a conversation would progress.

    Well Im guessing they somehow knew (funny that) there would be a flurry of attack mutts, first up, screaming
    “MONEY!” “WHO"S GOING TO PAY?”
    Then after that, who knows :-))
