    Best answer: You could do the rarest of rare things and simply refuse, without either running or offering any explanation. They would probably imprison you.

    Best answer: You could do the rarest of rare things and simply refuse, without either running or offering any explanation. They would probably imprison you. Yet they cannot really make you serve if you simply do not take one step at their command and simply do not pick up a gun. Total non-participation, particularly without any explanation, generally makes them violent, and they have in fact no scruples about breaking their own laws in regard to the treatment of prisoners. Some people go and fraggle the command. Some impair their own health. Some explain that they are pacifists. Some run to Canada. I would probably take any weapon anyone offered me, though I would not necessarily use it as they wished me to do. I rather like being handed weapons though.

  • How could someone destroy their voice without killing themselves?

    I m writing a novel in which the main character wants to immediately sabotage her ability to speak (temporarily or permanently), so I m looking for a way to do that. Obviously smoking and stuff takes way too long and drinking bleach or something would kill her. Anybody have any ideas?

    Best answer: Winners control the narrative. Jews have always been vilified in history, but they were determined to take extra steps to make sure nothing like this ever happened again.

    There was a new type of media for the modern age. Movies, radio, mass market magazines. Television was about the take off. Many Jews were prominent in media. This idea of Jews "controlling" the media is a matter of intprepretation, but their numbers in media are disproportionate to their numbers in the general population. This activity is acknowledged by Jews like Alan Dershowitz, Joel Stein, and many others (see comments). There is a well-researched, scholarly book called An "Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood." This is must reading for anyone serious about discussing these issues.

    The effort was to emphasize persecution, sometimes to the point of overselling it. Thus, there are proposed laws in several states to made Jewish genocide education mandatory in public schools (see comments).

    The consequence is that much of this was so fervently sold that any attempt at serious discussion about these issues often gets quashed. You get knee jerk reactions of "anti-semitism" and other sensitive claims, often from people who are not even familiar with these issues.

  • Why is there existence?

    Best answer: AGREED -- great question. Why does anything.. anything at all exist? Why not purely and utterly - NOTHING! This is probably better in the Philosophy section.

    Best answer: AGREED -- great question. Why does anything.. anything at all exist? Why not purely and utterly - NOTHING!
    This is probably better in the Philosophy section.
    I think most PRESUME some sorta ordered Universe (including a multiverse) exists and then proceeds from there.
    This is no doubt what Cosmologists and Pysicists mean when they say "nothing" -- they actually just mean a Universe that already exists but is in a very low state of energy and entropy.

    But when the Philosopher asks "Why something rather than nothing" -- they mean truly nothing -- No laws, no matter, no order, no energy, no multiverse, no dimensions - not any one thing.


    And this is perhaps the most profound question mankind CAN ask. Sadly, many people scuff at this, throw up their hands and say "How can we know!"

    We also can not simply assert that the Universe "always existed" because this question asks "Why?"

    I would end with saying that we should continue to wrestle with this question but as long as we deposit physical explanations, those explanations will need further explanation as to why THEY exist.
    What is needed to end the causal loop is a metaphysical source -- A non-physical source that because it is not physical, doesn't need further explanation.

  • Question about World War II?

    I asked this question a few minutes ago but I misworded it, what I meant to say was if Hitler HAD NOT declared war on the US just after Pearl Harbour as well as the Japs, would the US have gone to war mainly against the Japs in the Pacific and not so much in Europe as well?
