Political Correctness is a More Dangerous Form of Totalitarianism

Slavoj Žižek doesn't buy into political correctness. In fact, it frightens him. The famed philosopher and social critic describes political correctness as a tacit form of totalitarianism, an act of coercion built upon the premise that "I know better than you what you really want."

Is he wiping his nose and then looking at whatever is on his hand?

#2 tbh i dont watch him talk, i just listen.


What i hear him say is better be blunt than lie and pretend you are nice.
So i guess free speech is a joke we are buying.

Those 7 words G. Carlin mention are in 'gulag' already.
And many words mean exactly opposite of that i would think they mean by its core root.

So social, is something so basic to human we cant be without. Kids would just die and we wouldnt be here. So taking care of the weak is our primary concern and this is given for o so many animals, all mammals.

Last night i saw a guy who supports death penalty and doesnt support abortion. :) where is the logic in that.
But i see his thinking process death penalty are for those who deserve death and that "kid" could be next Jesus or something. Clearly they are waiting for him to come but "they" come in different colors that was represented to them so they dont like "them" and they kill "them".
And they wont see him come until they will be poor. Then anyone who will help them will be Jesus.
"" are Jesus reincarnated the people who fought for poor and had to die for it.
Come to think about it maybe reincarnation is history repeating itself.

PS: and economics if just to make things harder to track, so the illusion of this slavery goes on and those who dont obey by it. Im free if i agree with the lies they portray thats all it is.

#3 I'm sure what you are saying makes sense to you but you lost me at #2. Gulag that's a kind of soup isn't it? Something about painting Jesus was it? Oh look yeah fine it's all good well done.

I think the guy needed a tissue or handcuffs or something.

Looks like the comment number counter has packed in ADMIN? On the outside it looks like no one is interested lol:D


Page 10 now at least the page numbers are working

Hey guys, we've got some issues with our video encoders and for the moment we cannot publish any videos.
I will get back with more info once it is resolved.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

All the best,
Geek

Geekster , how's it going ?
All that 'page' thing is about is jakey childishly trying to get others to keep making a comment,
ANY comment, on a video from a while back to try and set a record for the most
comments on any video on snotr.....here's that video.

https://www.snotr.com/video/20340/Show_me_the_intermediate_fossils

As far as I can tell, this video holds all the records for views AND comments , plus
almost 600 votes.

#9. sux2bu why must every comment you post be sneering and denigrating?

You really come off as an unpleasant person.

And what is your obsession with that 10 year old vid? Who cares?

(Allow me to self-plagiarize because the site was buggy for a few days)

Traffic to this site has decline in the past decade for a myriad of reasons, not least of which is people’s choices in terms of social media and places to post has increased exponentially. As a result, Snotr’s community has declined. No one will ever reach those number of comments again. Such is life. But more importantly even with the reduced traffic there are interesting people on this site, some I disagree with on many issues, but I always try to treat them with respect and civility. I just wish you could do the same and end your predictable ad hominem attacks. Try to productively contribute for once – your frequently grumpy insult shtick is predictable, trite and increasingly lame.

#10 Geekster asked a question so I explained things exactly as they really are.
The constant begging for more comments on that video
is pitiful. Jakey can be and is just as condescending to me as
you are but it seems as though you try to impress with multiple
adjectives and drawn-out conclusions on what you see as someones
motivations or thoughts and you come off as a boring prick.
You spend little time commenting on videos and most of your
time trying to belittle and castigate many others here on snotr.
You come off as an angry little man always looking to elevate
yourself above others. I suggest you stop reading my comments if they
bother you.

Hi Geekster. No worries I am quite chill even when Suxy drops any pretence and unloads on me in a nasty tantrum. ‘A boring prick’? Charming.

Suxy, once again your uncivil language personal attacks make my point. You have largely been reduced to personal attacks and angry rants and that almost certainly drives people away. You and others of your alt-ilk were passively permitted to basically bully others for far too long – so at a point I chose to do what everyone should do to an insecure bully – call him/her out. And respectfully ask that they stop and ideally reflect on how their words are affecting others and creating an undesirable environment.

Yes, the part of the thrill you receive with your posts is denigrating others, so this is an uphill task, it seems to be who and what you are, but if you are going to be part of community is it too much to ask that you show a modicum of respect for others? Even those who you violently disagree with? Isn’t that what your religion would tell you to do – being a good Christian and all.

I don’t agree with some on a number of issues, and I can throw rhetorical elbows like the next person, but at the end of the day I will almost always treat them in a civil and respectful way. I only castigate people when they attack others and not their ideas.

Suxy, your approach is almost always the primitive personal attack. You like to denigrate people. This is clearly your thing now. You may have your 5 up voting supporters but you are a self-limiting group. A little cult of alt-personality which was to be expected.

Why cant you be more civil to others? Is that so hard for you to imagine and try and practice?
It is not a repulsive or impossible request for the rest of us.

It seems someone is a bit hurt that we are actually able to hold civil and intelligent conversations in the comment section back and forth for a long long time without agressively offending each other because we actually have a respectful conversation, a debate, despite the difference of opinions. To compare that with a comment section from long ago is silly, as there were so many more active snotr members around watching videos an commenting then.

#9 Suxi what you are is basically a GRASS, teachers pet..." OOu Geekster let me tell you what the bad children are doing, trying to set a record, look this is the video, look I've told them that there is a video with 600 comments on, arn't they childish geekster, not like me I'm great and a good boy"

It's amazing that you make comments about Jakey childishly trying to set records when YOU the last time you darkened this site, spent several weeks uploading almost the entire contents on one site you had found to SNOTR, most of which were crap. Hence the reason you have a number 67 at the end of your name.

I'm guessing you spent your entire childhood getting beaten up at school for being such a creep, you may still be there, who knows. I know Snotr numbers are down but quite frankly one less wouldn't bother me at all.

Sigh #19. sunnydaze4me. Really? So #11. sux2bu is some sort of truth teller with Tourette’s? He just cant help but insulting people because he must ‘tell it like it is’ ? That is just silly on so many levels.

What ever happened to the very simple adage ‘Just because you can doesn’t mean you should’?

‘Telling it like it is’ is such a cop out and weak way to condone bullying and trolling.
