    Default Get Ready Big

    After this semester I shall have ethics, philosophy, american gov't, and world gov't all under my belt. So I'm buildin up my arsenal to go toe to toe with you .

    In all seriousness though I may be needing plenty of help understanding Plato in the upcoming weeks...

    Oh, man I'm scared for us already. Think I'll just hang out on the joke threads.

    You need to come see the new screener I have from the documentary Rebellion of Thought, I will be interviewing the producers on the radio show tomorrow at 2:00 PM though instead of 3. A ton of philosophy and look at post-modern thought, as well as origins and from some like Plato, the guy not the gal.

    Big Stiffy, I am looking forward to the challenge.

    My suggestion would be to pay attention in some of your classes to words like “oppression”, “tyranny”, “freedom”, “prosperity”, “wealth”, and ”leadership”. Depending on each professor’s goals and intentions as well as the agenda of the class and school these kinds of words can unconsciously be used to sway your thoughts about the world one way or the other.

    For example: Obviously no good can come out of a place where TYRANNY exists. Well, you get the idea. On the other hand FREEDOM can do no wrong.

    Western political philosophy is strongly influenced by the Greeks (like Plato), who were discussing the proper organization of society thousands of years ago. To me, this is evidence of the importance of history, and its effect on us today.

    I hope Big Stiffy raises a lot of thought provoking questions, and shares with us some ideas he has gleaned from his clases.

    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
