Just looking at Sellers makes me want to laugh...

Or just Sellers and Herbert Lom in a room together...pure gold...need to dig the DVD up..

Been too long since I´ve seen "Strangelove"...what a film...

I posted a quote from it way back in the beginning of this thread...one of my favorite movie quotes of all time...

"Gentlemen! You can´t fight in here! This is the war room!"

Such a classic movie!

Peter Sellers was pure gold.

I need to re-watch some Seller’s movies.

Pink Panther, Being There, Dr Strangelove…all masterpieces.

“ Science isn’t ..‘what experts think’.
It’s a method that corrects what experts think.”

Brett Weinstein



Exactly. It is a method. A system of analysis any reasonably astute person can use.

White lab coat and diploma aren’t necessary.

There´s only now.


I don´t remember exactly when that one came in or how, but I remember it being quite a revelation for me.

Its simplicity in combination with missed importance. We have a tendency to think big messages come in lofty formats.

And before that, my attention and energy was unequally distributed between before, now and next.

And you know, driving the car is just safer when you´re not constantly looking in the rear mirror and when you´re not constantly looking forward, at the dashboard (speed, gasoline level, rpm, radio channels) but just here in the now through the front window at what is directly in front of you.

Stalin and Mao are wondering why Hitler gets all the credit. They killed way more people.
I guess it’s because they killed their own people.

A trio of assholes.

"Ideas are more powerful than guns. We wouldn´t let our enemies have guns. Why would we let them have ideas?"

Joseph Stalin

Idiot stooge or not...

Ominous.

It sounds like something a movie villain would say in a darkened room to his closest henchman/advisors...

The kind of line that makes you almost laugh when you think of the magnitude of perversity in it...

Unfortunately, it´s not from a movie...

Yeah, ..I get what You’re saying LotusStar. Too much tolerance isn’t good.

It’s all a matter of degree……What kind of situation we’re talking about.

Cannibalism isn’t a valid lifestyle choice in my view. I’d say it’s generally a bad thing. I don’t tolerate it.

Tolerance is all about nuance. What’s bad depends on the situation. We can’t fight against every little annoying thing other people do.

Let’s Say there’s a woman…and she’s really mad that her husband is always leaving the toilet seat up.

Day after day she tells him to put the toilet seat down as a courtesy to her.

Time after time he just keeps leaving it up.

Other people can be annoying. That’s where tolerance comes into play.



After months…maybe years of telling him to “Put the seat down”…..she kills him and gives the corpse to her cannibal friend.

Tolerance depends on the situation. See…… She tolerates her cannibal friend.

I’ve been watching too many clips of Norm Macdonald on YouTube.

RIP Norm.

"tolerance" is not a virtue, if it means tolerating something bad or destructive

So very true. I´ll add some from the past... they may very well be our future.

"Ideas are more powerful than guns. We wouldn´t let our enemies have guns. Why would we let them have ideas?"

Joseph Stalin

"The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of a million is a statistic"

Joseph Stalin

"The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything"

Joseph Stalin

I personally think Stalin was an idiot stooge. A character played on the stage much like George W Bush.

"How do you tell a communist? Well, it´s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. How do you tell an anti-communist? Someone who understands Marx and Lenin"

Ronald Regan

"Keep people from their history and they´re easily controlled"

Karl Marx.

The last I find quite fitting regarding the whole BLM movement and managing to convince an entire populace of indeginous persons that they were kidnapped from another continent.

"At no time in history have the people forcing others into compliance ever been the good guys..."

Matt Couch

Ain’t that the truth!

Forcing people is the antithesis of Zen and Taoism.
A big part of why I find them so appealing.
