  • Carvey has aged well as a comedian. I never would have guessed that back in the day.

  • The Neoplatonists - who believed philosophy was a practice, not a theory - talked about three phases for the soul: - Going Forth - Remaining - Turning Back and going home. It seems to me that life has phases like this, and that adulthood has a lot of "going forth" to many things. That is how the many selves get generated, right? But a little time spent "remaining" with what is, and "going home" to one's secret world each day - just a few moments - maybe can protect one from the madness of planning and traffic. What do you think?

  • If you had a book coming out from S&S this year you wouldn't be calling for a boycott. Therefore, you're a hypocrite.

  • Since you ask why i sneer at people pushing for a boycott of S&S, I'll repeat myself. Because it punishes every single writer they publish, and I'm not big on punishing writers. You yourself, however, have no problem with it.

  • Okay, you win. You're the most virtuous non-POC alive.

  • Beck, that's so funny. "You think you're so virtuous, Noah; what you don't understand is I'm defending a principle! It is I, me, brave Sir Beck, who is truly virtuous!"// I understand free speech, thanks. I was making fun of you. Weren't you the one tying yourself in knots to condemn the idea that people should boycott S&S? If S&S dumping him isn't a free speech issue, why sneer at people asking them to do so?// You don't need to say a word defending Milo is you scurry about amplifying his slurs against people he's targeted and pop up to say over and over that the people criticizing him are the really bad guys.//I'm suggesting that you might examine your principles if you keep siding with Nazis. That's all.

  • Yes, you're so very caring. Such a better human than everyone else. I've never said a positive thing about Milo. You're delusional. The CPAC thing's political. I don't care who they have as their speaker. Nothing to do with free speech.S&S was a business decision. What you don't get is I'm not defending a person. It's a principle, and one you don't really value. Doubt you even understand the legal definition of free speech in the US. Otherwise you wouldn't think these are free speech issues.

  • I'd like to add to Noah's statement that from what I've seen of Yiannopoulos's writing, his tabloid-level journalism doesn't always have the necessary confirmation.

  • Well, sure, I presume not many other folks care about enough to bother.// Care to defend Milo further? Ready to denounce CPAC for rescinding its invitation? S&S for censoring him? They've all stifled his free speech, I understand.

  • The Free Speech Movement was about allowing political activism on campus. At the time, it meant civil rights and ant-war activism. But in the long run, it also allowed for conservative student groups to exist--like the ones that invite Yiannopoulos to speak. That's how he is a beneficiary of the Free Speech Movement.

  • People? It's only you, troll.

  • "follow you here"? I read the article and you commented. I responded. If you don't want people to respond, don't post...?// and yep, you enable white supremacy and bigotry. You claim that's not your intention, and I'm willing to extend you the benefit of the doubt. But if you don't want people to say that's what you're doing, then you should stop racing to defend Milo everytime anyone posts an article about him.
