This article is interesting. "Why Do Americans Hate Beheadings But Love Drone Killings?"

quote:
Above link
There are at least four main reasons that explain why Americans care far more about the beheadings (thus far) of two Americans and one U.K citizen, than they care -- here's the polling -- about the thousands of foreign victims of US drone bombing.

The beheadings of a few Americans and a UK citizen are more sensational is an obvious issue. But if we consider the total numbers of people killed, could this thread title be "Be afraid, American drones"? or do we have to stay with "Be afraid, deano's psychopathy"?

Nah. I have no political power or influence beyond whinging (just like all of us here!), so you don't need to be afraid of me.

You need to be afraid if my party and the bulk of the people start to believe like me.

I see it starting, but it might be possible to avoid it.

But my soul is whole... I have, like Harry, never killed anyone.

Sorry, bit of cross thread conflation there.

To be frank I'm bored now. Seventeen pages an no minds have been changed. Is there a point anymore other than to be the last poster?

You might not self-define as a troll deano, but your internet productions show this: Dark Triad.

Hah! You've missed one for the tetrad (or the full house as we call it). I'll explain in more detail as soon as I get this satsuma out of my mouth!

Pssst...that's God's native language. She invented it. Study up before you arrive in Heaven--there'll be a test.

I'll give you a clue: there are 3 people who have a grossly unfair advantage in determining the winner of such a contest.

Technology has brought us all closer together. Turns out a lot of the people you meet as a result are complete idiots.

And at least one of them is enjoying this demonstration of the absolute moral depravity of humanity.

Me, a cynic? Me, reading too much Kant on radical evil? Me, occasionally browsing 4chan to remind myself that there ain't no good in men? Nah. Hellhosting makes me bitter and evil enough.

Carry on.
