People on the radio talking about how we're building a new way for moral values to function right now.
One of them thinks that the period that saw Nietzsche’s nihilism triumph is already over. (Since Foucault, meaning the 80’s.)
That we’ve already started a world in which morals exist in society without being grounded on the Judeo-Christian God (Judean-Christianism being, according to them, not so long-lived, and not so huge compared to the history of the world and all the spiritualities that existed). I think we did. ^o^
Also how this particular kind of God is not the problem in relation with morals or nihilism; the problem is the immortality of the soul…
And - this is fascinating - how the notion of person is rebuilding itself after the relative death of the ideas of immortality, of the soul, of a personal relationship with God. Humanism (Christian values without the existence of God) is not dead, basically.
They even say that maybe Christianism was only a beginning.
This particular program is called The Roots of Heaven. The Romain Gary fangirl in me is SHRIEKING WITH UTTER DELIGHT. Especially since tonight’s ideas are so Gary.
“In history there’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived. There isn’t one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality. So you say, ‘what’s going to happen to America?’ Well if history is any guide, the same thing’s going to happen to us.”—
Pat Robertson, reminding us again that teh gayz are gonna destroy ‘mericuh.
You’re thinking of the Sacred Band of Thebes, Sleepy :)
Basically, “no civilization that embraced homosexuality has survived” only in the sense that the concept of sexuality as we know it is MODERN. The Romans, etc, would not have identified as gay or straight — not because they weren’t attracted to different sexes than others but because they didn’t think of sexuality in our terms.
Also, this is so fucking wrong I do not even know where to start.
“According to witnesses who work at Classic Fashion, sscores of young Sri Lankan women sewing clothing for Wal-Mart and Hanes have suffered routine sexual abuse and repeated rapes, and in some cases even torture. One young rape victim at the Classic factory in Jordan told us her assailant, a manager, bit her, leaving scars all over her body. Women who become pregnant are forcibly deported and returned to Sri Lanka. Women who refuse the sexual advances of Classic’s managers are also beaten and deported. Classic, the largest garment export factory in Jordan, sews clothing for Wal-Mart, Hanes, Kohl’s, Target and Macy’s. On the weekly holiday, the alleged serial rapist general manager, Anil Santha, sends a van to bring four or five young women to his hotel, where he abuses them. The lives of the young Sri Lankan rape victims are completely shattered, as in their culture, virginity is highly prized and critical for a good marriage.”

I hate when people ask me why I’m not in a relationship.
When I ask what they mean by the question, I’m given answers like
“Well you’re so pretty” or “You have a great…
"You don’t get into a relationship for the characteristics your possess or just because you can.
That’s something that I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older.
A relationship is a lot more than all of that.
It’s a place where you go to give, rather than to take.”
I don’t even know why most people don’t think like that. I’m so naive. XD
And being bored because I’m not in the right company is the one situation I can’t bear. So if I can’t bear boredom with a few acquaintances in a bar, I don’t see how I would possibly bear being in a relationship just for the sake of it XD
about fighting back against the humans. I know it shouldn’t make sense, but I can’t get rid of this feeling.
I mean, listen. Charles’ thesis was about how the humans killed off the neanderthals, and how that’s a normal part of nature. More evolved species kill off the less evolved. That is exactly what Erik is going to do.
And then, I can’t get over his “They were just following orders” line. That was literally the worst thing he could have said to prove his point. And I think he knew that. Actually, he had to know that. He had been inside Erik’s head; he knew exactly how Erik felt about that. If Charles had really wanted to convince Erik, he could have said something else. Like, “don’t fight fire with fire.” You know, something that wouldn’t liken the humans to Nazis.
So, I don’t know. Maybe Charles wants the humans gone just as badly as Erik does, but he’s just too pacifistic. I have no idea, okay.
^ I have a lot of things to say about Erik as a “bad guy” and how their disagreement felt too wide and too sudden to me. And it’s not about shipping, it’s very politico-philosophical. *coughs*
But I had never thought about it the other way round! It makes sense though! =) (You’re right about the “following orders” line. Not that Charles wouldn’t spare them, but he’d at least know that Erik wouldn’t. Uuuh end-of-the-movie characterization ^^’)
