Re: Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

This may be inaccurate, but according to the film about Ghandi, when he was asked about the Nazis, he did say he'd employ the same nonviolence techniques he was using against the British. I never said the man wasn't blinkered.... But protests to the contrary, his methods would NOT have worked if th...

Re: Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

ON pacifism: The fatal flaw of pacifism--- peaceful resistance, in the vein of Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr.---- is that it only works when it is relatively certain that the person or organization or culture or society you are resisting is of the same moral fibre and has the same moral values as ...

Chipping in some of my own bloody opinions...

On the issue of the "dichotomy" of good and evil--- may I recommend CS Lewis' "Mere Christianity." Though some of his theology was amiss, he was a great scholar and thinker who dissected the philosophy of dualism quite thoroughly and effectively, exposing it for the falsehood that it is. He expresse...

Re: Today's comic

Okay, noobie here, with my speculation on the hunters: 1)They're a group that actively hates and fears geeks and their lifestyle. That suggests to me they're a group that feels threatened and disenfranchised by geeks.... Stereotypically, this would be A)former Jocks B)Former Preps C)"Holy Rollers" D...

comments and criticisms

Yeeeeees, I've been reading your comics and following along for some time now:D... After burrowing thru the archives and following along for the current arc, I felt motivated to chip in with my opinions. The setting, characters and general storyline are great. The art is simple but clear (though I d...

Wanderwolf: And none of those heinous criminals of yesteryear would have even made the front page today. Nor, for that matter, were any of them "starving and desperate." They were just butt-hats. Thank you for emphasizing my proven point for me. Repeated as self evident: if poverty were the "root ca...

Poverty causes crime? The newspapers are filled, every day, with stories of prosperous people committing atrocious crimes. To wit, Saddam Hussein, Kim Il Jong, and Osama bin Laden all have something in common.... they were stinking rich. Most of the ranks above "disposable goon" in the terrorist net...

The ownership of guns may only be half of the equation--- but it's the half you need to make the other half meaningful. Bragging your city has a low gun crime rate when people are getting stabbed, clubbed or throttled--- or are simply turning over their wallets like helpless sheep to whoever threate...

It's not like the ancient scribes had cross-check sums. Or the Noah's Flood tale, which flies in the face of biology (several times over), ecology, chemistry, physics, geology, meteorology, marine engineering, and animal husbandry.

Also, a thought occured to me while writing this... In essence, Vampires are meant to be the Christian image of the old Pagan religions. Consider the following: -They only came out at night -Draw blood from the living to gain power -Communed with animals (And in some cases, turned into them) -Didn'...

If I learned that my home was on ground sacred to Native Americans, I'd start looking for a new one. In fact, sometimes I toy with the idea of moving out of the U.S. just to live on unstolen land. Okay, that may be hard to find, but I'd settle for land that wasn't stolen in the last 500 years and n...

I suspect the Urban Dictionary is a bit more urban than correct.

Actually, Wanderwolf, the only reason the Iraqis bothered with a trial is because of external pressure. See, they're not as noble and as sensitive as you... for instance, if the <I>IRAQI</i> armed forces catch an insurgent planting an IED or sniping from a rooftop, they don't read him his Miranda ri...
