In Topic: Is being nice and tolerant to other people illegal

...or just knock them out.

Seriously, I empathise with the OP. If I wasn't bored at work at times I wouldn't come on here. Some/most of the threads on the general forum quickly polarise views as fast as the cross code forum does. By page 2 the trenches are dug and by page 35 the last men standing are still throwing grenades.


You say that as if it's a bad thing 😳😳

More simplistically, just like in soccer it's all down to coaching: they are told to do it.

If it was ever punished (as it used to be in days of fond memory) it would soon stop - every bit of backchat, march them 10m down the pitch.


Yeah our game is on danger of going down the soccer route

"It is misconduct to question the descision of the referee or any other match official"

Easy, penalise them

I disagree with many people on here over many issues but I'd still like to sit down for a pint with just about any, no, make that all of them.

Quote from Orwell's 1984

 

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Heirarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principal the war effort is always planned to keep society on the edge of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not victory over Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact"

 

 

Now Orwell's prediction is not 100% correct, but his "permanent war" is not far from the truth, enemies are created out of groups that "we" once supported, and the war goes on, and on.

 

there are no real solutions, because a real solution is not desirable to governments.
