lucklucky: BBC is not naive. BBC is not a news organization. Such thing does not exist btw. BBC is a political organization.
Graham: I am reminded of Milton Friedman’s comment when some Scandinavian politician commented that in Scandinavia there was much less poverty than in America- “Well, we also have very little poverty among Scandinavians”.
Sheldon.: East Germans selected their athletes at three to five years old to be placed in the most rigorous training programs. A series of simple tests can determine who has that innate ability to do well.
lucklucky: A very poor text. What is difference between being Social State and being Populist..? Fascism came from Marxism. So Marxism-Fascism Without Marxism in Fascism there is no attempt of Socialization of Economy https://it.wikipedia.org /wiki/Socializzazione_de ll’economia In 1943 precisely when the Monarchy conservatism stopped to influence Fascism.

Anomaly UK: While we’re throwing around comparisons, something that most non-Americans won’t be aware of is the short season of American football.

A Boy and His Dog: Poor Mangan. Eventually he will get old and die just like the rest of us. I liked him a lot more before he started peddling crackpot health theories… From a pure cost-benefit perspective I don’t think it makes any sense to purchase his book.
Felix: I’ve not been involved with many formal FDA risk analyses, but none I have seen have included the risk of delaying product release. This gets interesting because the formal risk analysis, itself, will normally delay product release for some time.
Ross: Let’s see. Main character has doubts, falls from grace. Must go on somehow, despite being tribeless. In a crux moment, acknowledges Gnon, is welcomed back in without rancor and aspersions, returns to fight with all his will, and although is physically destroyed in the process, he saves those around him, and his eternal soul. Almost sounds like the elevator pitch for Mencius Moldbug’s coming of age story.
Morris: Eunuchs in China lived seven years longer than other men and never developed male pattern baldness. 2,000 years of observation cannot be denied.
