GUEST,Musket musing BS: Obit - Below the Line??? (72* d) RE: BS: Obit - Below the Line??? 25 Sep 13

I'd worry if I were you Bridge. Has it occurred to you that I have been consistent and you are mellowing? Perish the thought and all that.

I reckon it is about time a thread or two appeared on the role of free market economics in funding a social agenda. You are right, we have not been disagreeing enough lately.

You see, what Bridge and I have in common is respect for the other view. Valid view that is. A view based on a rational ethos and applied to the thread subject. We may not always agree, far from it, and it has gone down the name calling route, hence Mither, M'Unlearned Friend etc. (I didn't come up with that first but wish I did.) But at no point has ribbing turned to contempt.

Views that include restricting the rights of others are not valid views and are to be challenged, belittled and shown there is no place for them in a just society. The old adage of our fathers fighting a war to kick the bastards into touch would be fitting if we were to invoke such a statement....

Trying to insult peoples' intelligence by claiming a public health clause to further hatred and division of the people who jointly make up society is beneath contempt and my only sense of wonder is how Akenhateon thinks his posts don't contain hate. But there again, personality disorder is something we have to deal with. Present medical thinking is that you don't encourage it by calling it a view.
