Rem replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion Why are chemical weapons a redline?
"Yes, they're that much worse. Conventional weapons are non-lethal by accident, and you can train an officer to send kids to near certain death if needed to. Agent Orange was far, far more efficient than guns or missiles--after all, you…"

Rem replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion Why are chemical weapons a redline?
"For the US, at least, it's largely due to the whole, "Agent Orange," thing. You have to understand: Bombs kill people. Sure, people may get maimed or injured, and they might die on a hospital bed or live as amputees, but the main…"

Rem replied to Maggs Science's discussion Why haven't guns been outlawed yet?
"Strictly speaking, living in an area with few muggings is valid reason enough to not feel concerned about it. Prepared, certainly--it's always important to know self-defense and the proper method for dealing with various dangerous…"

Rem replied to Maggs Science's discussion Why haven't guns been outlawed yet?
"If you've only been mugged or robbed once, why are you so concerned about it? Non-lethal weapons are hard to come by, but less so than, say, guns. You might have to go to a specialty store or website to buy a taser or some pepper spray. You…"

Rem replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion Gay couple suing Church to be married
"The government promised that it would not happen; not that people (millionaires included) won't request it."

Rem replied to Brandie Lynn Mercer's discussion Pro choice or pro life?
""That argument...we destroy." Personally, I value children because they're innocent, self-aware, and their deaths would cause others (Their parents, for one) pain. Potential doesn't really concern me. A kid with down syndrome…"

Rem replied to Brandie Lynn Mercer's discussion Pro choice or pro life?
"But an aborted fetus will not, ultimately, have the traits we humans value in ourselves, on account of being aborted. If you mean it would be a thinking human if no-one interfered, I suppose I agree, but even disregarding the natural way humans…"

Rem replied to Latch33570's discussion NEWS and the GOVT
"Remember the Arab Spring? Short of turning off the internet and hunting down every media device with a satellite connection, complete media control is impossible in the US. You can organize a protest from the comfort of your home, you can send…"

Rem replied to Kristen Albertson's discussion Is Utopia Possible?
"Yep. I mean, there's no doubt in my mind that we'll kill each other long before we even come close--and probably permanently damage the development of any other tool-using species that happens to evolve from this planet, though…"

Rem replied to Brandie Lynn Mercer's discussion Pro choice or pro life?
"Question--for what reason do you value a human embryo more than the embryo of any other animal? And if you say, "Because it's human," then my next question is: What human trait do you value in particular? It must be unique to humans…"

Rem replied to Brandie Lynn Mercer's discussion Pro choice or pro life?
"I don't know about, "Should." Imperatives are a bit much: I should be allowed to vote for a certain political candidate, but I shouldn't be obligated to. I'd be voting for everyone if that were the case, which would defeat…"

Rem replied to Brandie Lynn Mercer's discussion Pro choice or pro life?
"A five year old is observably intelligent, and has measurable brain waves. Granted, late-development fetuses have brain cells as well, but for the first trimester or so, they're slabs of meat. Human meat, but meat nonetheless."

Rem replied to Latch33570's discussion NEWS and the GOVT
"Alas, the government is complete control over the media. There is no way for us to know the truth. If only there were some way for civilians to report on events with pictures, videos, and firsthand knowledge, and then share that information with…"

Rem replied to Latch33570's discussion Why aren't younger Americans upset about social security?
"It costs me a small amount of money and saves a fair number of people from homelessness. More to the point, the older generation who'd suffer if the program were to be cut has already paid for it. They paid for it, I pay for it, my children pay…"

Rem replied to Vertigo_One [Ops Mod]'s discussion The Secular Case against gay marriage
"The entire institution of marriage is flawed to begin with. Sure, it makes things a bit easier legally (Inheritance, right to see your significant other in the hospital room and decide what to do if they can't, being a legal guardian of…"

Rem replied to Easton Camp's discussion Why does Science and Theology have to be polar opposites?
"Maybe it breaks down once you reach numbers with a billion digits. According to humans, this isn't the case, but we really only have our own word for it, seeing as how we created it."
