Got any thoughts about the world? Well this is the place to share your philosophy.

I stress the fact that we must be respectful, debate is fine but do not break any of the rules. If people are not behaving appropriately, this thread will probably be locked.

Well, I'll say what quite a lot of people on here seem to agree with: Donald Trump is incompetent, crazy, etc., etc..

What do you think of superiority complexes? Is it natural to see oneself above others? Or is it an evil to not see every other person as an equal. 

Over the years I have studied under the influence of Jesus and George Harrison to become more relaxed and at ease. I believe I was successful too, because I have not lost my temper in nearly two years. My goal is to completely rid my life of anger. I'm not sure if its even possible, but I will try. 

So when I see people lose their temper, it comes with a lot of empathy, but I also look at the situation and think "why are you so mad? Stop being so mad."

Since I am still young, I have very few answers to my questions and the last thing I want to end up as is a pretentious "stupid get."

I want to properly study philosophy next year in college.

I think that it is a problem of emotions vs logic. I think the world would be a better place if people reacted logically as apposed to emotionally.

When I was 12 I just decided to stop caring what people did, said, or thought.
Of course, my not caring about what people do has lead to many awful situations I've been thrust into.
I have no idea how amy of this relates to your post.

You can't be incompetent when you are about to become President of the United States and have a net worth of $3.7B. All the crap jokes and moronically stupid comments over Trump really irritate me and I don't like him.

We are emotional beings; feelings are a large part of what drives us in our actions and thoughts. Sometimes what is logical is not what is best in a given situation.

 

I'm not sure what my philosophy is. I want my family to be happy and for me to help folk have a little less shit life with a bit more happiness.

@meanmistermustard, he doesn't want security briefings! They are essential!

 

I'll stay out of this now... I don't know enough about him or America to comment intelligently.

Feelings are much easier to manipulate. Feelings drive people to rash actions and blind hate. Feelings are used too much in place of logical actions.

Very true. However people can also be duped into acting due to incorrect information, faulty logic, believing what others tell you for whatever reason etc. It's somehow finding a balance. If your logic is based on what is false then you're actions are also likely to be incorrect and therefore potentially harmfu.

This is a great thread and needs a good question, what do you think the age of consent should be.

Maybe you should try posting more.

I think waiting till marriage is a good way to go. It would eliminate a lot of the needs for abortion. I don't think abortion is right, and many times when abortions are "needed" it's due to out of wedlock accidents.

I agree that abortion is wrong and that it's stupid that it's legal, but there's multiple options so you can have pre marital sex without having a child or an abortion, such as condoms, birth control pills, day after pills, tube tying, and castration. For me, I believe that the age of consent is when you're old enough that you can have a child.

Well you can have a child as soon as you are menstruating, which can be as young as eight years old. You think an eight year old girl should be allowed to have sexual relations with a grown man?

What sort of 8 year old has a period, sounds rare as hell to me, most women don't start until they're around 12 or 13, although considering I dropped out of school, maybe I should double check.

I only know of a couple people who got it at eight, but I know a few just in my family who got it at nine. Average age is like nine to fifteen.

Going to have to rethink this, having the age of consent at 16 and 13 with personal and parental consent sounds pretty good.

Maybe you should try posting more.
