Rainer Möller replied to Kirby Urner's discussion 'Is Semite Really a Synonym for Jewish?'
"Kirby, I must admit that the theory of evolution (i.e. evolution of new species via racial differentiation) is a mere theory. Even if it is now conventional wisdom taught in schools (but for using the word "race"), such an evolution of a…"

Rainer Möller replied to Kirby Urner's discussion 'Is Semite Really a Synonym for Jewish?'
"Kirby, the central point which I want to make is: Endogamy/Exogamy has consequences. Group endogamy causes group differences, first of course physical differences, but also in the realm of psycho-physical relations. (Of course, groups/clusters, and…"

Rainer Möller replied to Kirby Urner's discussion 'Is Semite Really a Synonym for Jewish?'

THE EMR Initiative - Bolshevism

Posted on 3rd mo. 17, 2019 at 4:48am 1 Comment

Communism is the name of a Party. Socialism is a certain economical policy (which, in its more radical variants, may be naive and preposterous, but not immoral in itself). The real problem we have to speak about is Bolshevism.

Bolshevism – as different from Communism and Socialism - is a political strategy which is grounded in certain assumptions about reality. It is neither restrained to a…

The E.Merrill Root Initiative

What's this?

A rightwing Quaker is hard to find.

"Conservative" Quaker means normally that you are a traditionalist in all matters of religion and personal conduct, but not politically. To their honor, a lot of Quakers have been "Libertarians" when this kind of political ideology was fashionable, but where have they gone?
