Philosophical Thought of the Week:

A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices. And it all comes from lying–to others and to yourself.

Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Boring if you ask me. I thought the t-shirt adds next to the video feed were more entertaining. They had several different slogans.

My favorite was the one that said <You can give peace a chance. I'll cover you if it doesn't work out>, with a large image of an assault rifle between the first and second sentence.

Jun-13-18  Nisjesram: <big pawn> , check out this joke based on a real story.

A certain Mr 97% in English goes to a doctor

Mr 97% : doc, I want castration.

Doctor : hmmm ! Are you sure?

Mr 97% : Absolutely sure.

Doctor : let me understand clearly. You are asking me to perform surgery on you for your castration - C-A-S-T-R-A-T-I-O-N

Mr 97% : quick, are not you ,doc?

Doctor : fine (shrugs his shoulder).

When the anesthesia wears off , Mr 97% sees another guy in the room bandaged at the same place as him.

Mr 97% : what you here for, buddy?

Patient : circumcision.

Mr 97% : OMG . that was the word. What the hell did I do! I said the wrong word

--------

Not my fault , Mr 97% . you got what you asked for. Quit sulking now :)

Are you catching this <ohiochessfan> :)

  thegoodanarchist: Excerpt from Baskerville, S. Taken into Custody: The War Against Fatherhood, Marriage, and the Family. Nashville: Cumberland House Publishing, 2007:

<“Virtually every major social pathology of our time: violent crime, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy and scholastic failure, unwed pregnancy, suicide and other psychological disorders – all these correlate more strongly to fatherlessness than to any other single factor.[1] According to the National Fatherhood Initiative, “Children who live absent their biological fathers are, on average, at least two to three times more likely to be poor, to use drugs, to experience educational, health, emotional, and behavioral problems, to be victims of child abuse, and to engage in criminal behavior than those who live with their married, biological (or adoptive) parents.”[2] The overwhelming majority of prisoners, juvenile detention inmates, high school dropouts, pregnant teenagers, adolescent murderers, and rapists all come from fatherless homes. Children from affluent but separated families are much more likely to get into trouble than children from poor but intact ones, and white children from separated families are at higher risk than black children in intact families. The connection between single parent households and crime erases the relationship between race and crime and between low income and crime[3].”>

[1] Attempts to attribute these behaviors to poverty or racial discrimination have been refuted by studies that control for these variables. See Urie Bronfenbrenner, “Discovering What Families Do,” in David Blankenhorn, et al. (eds.), Rebuilding the Nest: A New Commitment to the American Family (Milwaukee: Family Service America, 1990), p. 34; Ronald Angel and Jacqueline Angel, Painful Inheritance: Health and the New Generation of Fatherless Children (Madison: University of Wisconsin Press, 1993), p. 188. Even left-wing scholars concur: Norman Dennis and George Erdos, Families Without Fatherhood (London: Civitas, 2000). [2] Horn and Sylvester, Father Facts, p. 15.
[3] Elaine Ciulla Kamarck and William Galston, Putting Children First (Washington: Progressive Policy Institute, 1990), p. 14.

  technical draw: <tga> Even though it appears to be good scholarship with the listing of authors and studies, there seems to something strange about the conclusions. It's almost Illogical and goes against common experience.

"Virtually all major social pathologies.." is a lot of pathologies.

Jul-08-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <td> that's an interesting comment you've made.

To support your comment, could you then name 3 "major social pathologies" that are absent from his list of pathologies?

The list being

1. violent crime
2. drug and alcohol abuse
3. truancy and scholastic failure
4. unwed pregnancy
5. suicide and other psychological disorders

Jul-08-18

1. Abortion on demand
2. Racial tensions
3. Disrespect for authority.

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: < technical draw: 3. More

1. Abortion on demand
2. Racial tensions
3. Disrespect for authority.>

OK, #1. on your list is a major one. However it is included in my list under 4. unwed pregnancy. (Unless the woman is married of course.)

2. Racial tension. It is innate to trust your own race more than an alien race, so I don't consider this a pathology any more than eating donuts is a pathology! (Since it is innate for humans to indulge in eating sugar and fat).

3. Disrespect for authority is a good one, but I don't think it belongs on the list because the list is <actions>, whereas disrespect is a mindset.

  technical draw: OK, I see why it's hard. You generalize and I pick specifics. You say violent crime which is a general category and I say violence against children or the elderly which is more specific.

However to attribute all these to social pathologies seems too simplistic to me. But since you quote from a list of scholars I'll take the results as fair.

There's actually only three.

The others were invented so folks who write papers, and those who "fix" pathologies, will always be employed.
