I feared you would say that. And I feared you did in fact know and were only trolling. | We in Europe didn't subjugate anything. You are now mixing your opinion with legal fact. You also appear to confuse the existence of a system with some desirable results, in effect denying that the system exists if it has not produced all the results you desire. You may find it surprising, but I do not wish to entertain a discussion with you on such premises. | Or maybe you were just trolling. But that doesn't look like you (fwik). I thought you were. I know nothing about you, but you have shown a lack of willingness to distinguish important historic facts from your opinions based on human suffering. That is very troll-like in my book. Bringing up human suffering is generally dishonest and anti-intellectual. It is like discussing health care systems and bringing up a suffering baby and asking "would you kill this baby?". Those who do that kind of thing tend to explode in irrationalities when I would answer "yes". I take it for granted that you now wish to explode with hatred and will hurl accusations against me for supporting genocide and what not at this point -- I have seen what I believe to be your kind several times before -- so you do not have to actually do it. If you wish to make a different point, such as showing that you understand what "rule of law" means, I may respond, but the way you have chosen to argue, any future silence on my part simply means that I am too exasperated to deal with you. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
