No, seriously. Let's forget for a moment that, because it's an evolution of the Greek education ideal, that liberal arts is often "liberal arts and sciences" and includes things like biology. Let's focus on things like philosophy, psychology, history, and economics. All of them are often housed in liberal arts departments (depending on the school). God forbid anyone with a degree in one of those should ever have power! We need to consolidate power among people with technical degrees, not ones focused on broad experience that broadens the perspective. Perspective is dangerous! Or something.

It's like saying we have too many R's. One ought to be enough!



Gee Dogen, how's that workin out for ya?

How's what working out for me? That doesn't make any sense.

Unless you just mean being annoyed with your ignorance, in which case it worked out fine. I blew off steam and then forgot about it. I think I ate a cookie shortly after, but it may have been a scone. I forget.

The scary part is that somehow, in some way, Thy thought that retort made sense.

I mean having certain types of people in power over others.

You honestly believe our current situation is ideal?



Do I really need to compare and contrast between the United States and China for you?

Given that it's allowed americans to basically become fat lazy assholes who don't have to give a shit about the world around them....i'd say it's working pretty well from a pure self interest point of view.

Beautiful straw man, Thy. That is top notch. I haven't seen logic that weak since my 7th grade debate class.

Thy: People with liberal arts degrees should be prevented from having power!
Me: Do you even know what are included in the liberal arts?
Thy: SO YOU THINK EVERYTHING IS OKAY?!

If you were any more irrational you'd be... I don't, Orly Taitz, I guess. I'm having a hard time thinking of someone less rational than you right now.

I was going to say Antonin Scalia, but at least that guy can follow a conversation.

I'm half convinced Scalia is just trying to get everyone riled for his own amusement. Not like he has anything to lose or gain, and he's always been amused by his own dickishness, so...

It's beautiful how you avoid answering the question by derailing.

Try again.

Not answering a fallacious charge is not derailing. Derailing is answering a question that followed from your statement with one that didn't. I'm re-railing, if anything. They call me Dogen the Re-Railer, or just The Rail for short. It's a secondary nickname, like Cred. Or would that be tertiary? Anyway, you can call me Mr. Dogen, Cred the Re-Railer, Protector of the Faith, Confuser of the Faithful, if you please.
