Is it a legitimate reason for divorce because the husband has sexual dysfunction? by Snow in AskSaidIt

[–]FormosaOolong 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

For some people this could be a viable solution. Especially for those who are secure enough in their commitment to one another to not feel "possessive." I have known several polyamourous couples, with very clear boundaries around their "primary", "secondary", "fluid-bonded" etc. That's not a solution for everybody, but it works for some. It requires emotional maturity.

It's a symbolic representation of Mother earth. Offering respect to a symbol is done all the time in the church. (Communion, the crucifix, etc) I'm not Catholic either.

The leap to "Pope is Satan" is farfetched, in my opinion.

The dictum to not worship idols is widely misunderstood. The Buddhists put it better when they say not to mistake the finger pointing to the moon for the moon.

One tactic corporations use to avoid personal liability is those weird layers of "outsourcing" or subcontracting or whatever it's called.

Everyone can just point the finger elsewhere and shrug it off feigning ignorance/innocence. I agree with you the citizens united bullshit is mockingly one-sided.

I have a big problem with companies committing fraud and crimes against humanity, yet only getting financial penalties--which they may never pay out, and/or they simply write into their budgets, making the consumer pay for it. This is why carbon tax is so stupid--t doesn't solve the inherent problem that these corporations are wreaking havoc and mayhem yet are not being held accountable( the way an individual would if they were intentionally poisoning their neighbor's well or knowingly defrauding people.

We have to pull their business licenses (although good luck with DBA reconfig) and hold their CEO's legally responsible for their criminal acts. Why do we reward sociopaths? It's confounding.

ETA: let's not even get started on Bayer's sordid history.

I really wish they had been banned from doing business instead.

I'm not sure what part of African grave-robbing and dusty rooms piled with things no one will ever look at sounds scholarly. I understand your point, but there has been a lot of shady activity under the guise of "scholarship." I agree that in some cases important artifacts are safer outside of their place of origin. Does that justify stealing though? It's a grey area sometimes for sure. And also, asking, even for decades, isn't always getting: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-greece-britain-marbles/greece-proposes-parthenon-marbles-swap-says-still-wants-their-permanent-return-idUSKCN1VO1AZ
