Default The Dilemma of Tom Sherman

On Oct 23, 6:42 pm, "Edward Dolan" wrote:
Tom Sherman is so close to being rational that it is a shame that he can not
claim what is rightfully his. Liberalism (socialism-communism) was a false
dream. It has never worked and it never will because it goes against our
human natures. Marx and Engels were most woefully wrong. The Soviet
experiment in Russia was the the most serious social experiment ever in the
history of mankind and it failed. I urge Tom Sherman to give up on those
dreams. All collective solutions ultimately fail.

A pure Conservatism (individualism) is as much an abomination as is a pure
Liberalism (collectivism). Imagine the absurdity of living in society
without taking into account the matrix of society itself which binds us all
together. **** all extremisms all the way to Hell and back! They are all
totally insane.

I am an individual, but I am also part of society. And so are we all.


Your past posts betray you and contradict this very notion, so you can
spare the readership your bull****. You are a self-professed,
misanthropic recluse who has embraced the secluded solitude of an
insular lifestyle. Disenfranchised from reality, you are a socially
detached hermit by choice. Internet forums serve as ersatz social
interaction that only momentarily disrupts your otherwise self-
sequestered isolation. Without the lifeblood of the Usenet newsgroup
audience to sustain you, you have nothing and are nothing. Your
worthless, rehashed, regurgitated posts are a callous waste of
Internet bandwidth, server CPU cycles and archival disk storage.
Fortunately, once your have departed, your monotonous, vitriolic,
scatological harangues will be relegated to the status of cyber-
coprolite!

This means that we must have at least some minimum consideration for the whole.


And we can expect this from you ... WHEN, pray tell???

Tom Sherman is not so much wrong in his liberalism as he is off on his
emphasis. There is an eternal conflict between the individual and the
collective.


Heed your own words. The "eternal conflict with the collective" can
readily be interpreted as your conflict with the newsgroup collective
(members), particularly ARBR. Nice self-portrait though, by the way.

We must meet in the middle if we are to survive. All the
conflicts of society are really internal to ourselves. I want to meet in the
middle, but not Tom Sherman. It is why I feel sorry for him. He is so close,
yet so far.

Tom Sherman needs to recognize that there is a place in society for the
individual. If he cannot do this, then he is a nut case. We all of us feel
our individualism, but we also feel our social selves as well. We belong not
only to ourselves, but to the society of which we are members.


When do you intend to practice what you preach???

We are eternally at war with ourselves and with our society.


You are eternally at war with ARBR members ... particularly To
Sherman.

All of the above is Sociology 101, but there are none so ignorant as those
who do not know any better. It is only a liberal arts education that gives
any insight into these eternal conflicts.


A liberal arts education and/or course in sociology is not required.
This is simple common sense ... something which you either lack or
refuse to exercise.

Hells Bells, even Communist China has come around to acknowledging the

Biomass of like genetic material and chemical composition do not a
member of society make. No matter what kind of spin you attempt put
on this, a hermit voluntarily lives in solitude disenfranchised from
society. Being a member of society inherently presupposes an
association with community. Troglodyes simply do not qualify!
