  • History of religions and ideas and philosophie

    Maybe is not warfare but for the few months i'm here lot of debates are around those concepts or ends with that questions.
    Maybe also some experts of this would stay on this forum and could give informations.

    Could be in two chapters :

    Religions
    Ideas : enlightenment, sociology,capitalism, socialism...

    I actually suggested this idea a number of months ago as well.

          Been a part of history a long time. Hence imo there's value. For this is a History forum. As long as civility is maintained i am willing. And in the context you suggest, i believe this forum base can exchange willing, viewpoints that could be of considerable interest.

          Thanks.

            I'm all for it but I suspect 90% of all threads there will be like: "Is Obama a real Communist?" If not in name then in post content, for sure.

                From this question we shift it on : where has it been real communism from the Commune 1870 in Paris to kibboutz in israel in sixties or self organised peasant communities in central and south america in nineties.

                  On the surface the idea sounds good.

                  But religion is a topic that would require a very hardcore seriously dedicated moderator that would turf threads the very second it went from intellectual discussion to pro religious/anti religious hate spirals.

                  The forum already has a science zone though, so supporting a religious section is not an unreasonable request.

                  But the threads would need to be intentionally and deliberately required to keep the context within a historical framework, or they would just inspire ban grade offenses in my opinion.

                  For instance, I agree, the moment Obama's name get's uttered it's on par with the moment Hitler gets mentioned, the thread has died.
                  Life is change. Built models for decades.
                  Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                  I didn't for a long time either.

                    Well, on the surface, I would have no problem offering myself up as a moderator, Les. In fact, I think I offered as much back when this idea first came up. However, this would have to wait until my domicile situation becomes clarified. In addition, since I am generally well-known to be a left-wing agnostic , a co-moderator would be required just for the sake of avoiding claims of favoritism. For this, I would nominate Torien, who has already expressed interest in this, and whose political persuasions seem the opposite of mine. Plus, he is already a forum moderator without portfolio, if I understand correctly.

                    Otherwise, your points are all well founded. The political central thread already seems to be locus for banning offensives, I can see a dedicated religion/philosophy thread devolving into a free for all. Perhaps a separate set of rules may be required and a much more stringent application of them. A firm distinction would also have to be applied between political philosophy and actual politics. Thus, a thread like "Where does National Socialism lay in the political spectrum" would be more suited to this type of proposed sub-forum, whereas "A political challenge to Palin haters" would not.

                      Well in that Case, I, as a relative unknown, moderate-conservative, spiritualist forum member; would balance out that equation nicely.




                      Thanks.

                        I would accept this nomination and would gladly work beside my Brother Skoblin. I would love to try and keep said forum on a track of philosophical discussion and would rain down hard on any who would attempt to turn anything into a shouting match.

                          The Hutterite's seem to have made "Real Communism" work for them:

                          From some of my Amish friends I have learned that these communities do so well that, especially in Alberta, they by farm equipment straight from John Deere (no middle men at all) to the tune of $millions per year.

                            Heh, I meant it will hardly go beyond comic-book definitions for many "politically engaged" people here.

                              You are right.
                              That's open lot of threads...marxist catholic in south america and arabic socialists (muslims as christians) in middle east.
                              And the scale of such communities in a complex system. Seems that the bigger is the less it works(?).
