Go to: 'God gap' impedes U.S. foreign policy, task force says

T4Baxter's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by T4Baxter

Not sure how adding an immutable set of opposing ideals to foreign policy will help, when trying to find a middle ground with people of conflicting faiths!? Surely the only concrete middle-ground anyone can agree on has to be based on universal truths, such as science. not perochial brain sludge like the religions of the world.

That was pure terror!

Seems to me, the majority of the audience fell on the obvious moral imperative to safeguard the rights of the individual, even if that course of action allows the order within society to descend into chaos.

Certain living conditions are not conducive to a society who claims to care about children (1 million abused every year under current conditions) on the other hand you've got child-rearing treated, without thorough explanation, as 'sacred' and, as such, should not be state controlled. What they fail to admit is that the 'pay-off' exist at all. All that happened here, was the majority, from a wealth of ignorance, yapped the most liberal thing they can to get the cheers!
All the while, the educated people who were willing to discuss the pay-off, that needs to be redressed to ease an 'existing crisis' were hounded for considering levels of control, in order to avert destabilization of society, not least on this occasion, tax payers opinion about the system itself.

In so far as the system is counter intuitive through financial incentive and holds a fundamental social injustice at its root, it can be hard to swallow, but that's not the point.

The point is redressing the failing balance of the 'pay off' to better protect our children.

The key being to stay, in some way, ahead of the relevant postulation. if you find a question to be asked, or being asked experimentally you can immunize your flock early.
Prevention is always better than cure, this is a bi-product of the meeting they had with those crazy sccciiiennnnce guys, yuh know, extolling the verifiable truth
