He stole other people’s idea and used them to make other people think he was smart. Those people didn’t know any better, you do.
Yeah I don’t know about all that.
Titan either doesn’t know any better, or he’s just trolling.
I’m tending to lean towards the trolling angle.
Repetitive posts that are circular. It’s almost like he’s trolling for sympathy or something. Yecch!
I’m afraid this isn’t trolling. But I’m just trying to point out the counters people might make. Originally I would have just dismissed him out of simply being crazy, but since reading about philosophy I learned that I cannot do that anymore. So apparently I have to give him equal weight like any other.
No philosophy ever said you have to give Charles Manson equal weight to anybody.
That’s what it was like when I went to college. They said you can’t just dismiss someone for being crazy, at least the few courses of philosophy said that. While no philosophy said that explicitly the rules for arguing said that I cannot do that. Believe me I want to, I don’t want to give that madman any credit it all, but it would be a fallacy to simply write him off.
Not to mention any time someone refers to the words freedom, prison, or slavery, is a powerful thing. Most people grow up obsessed with freedom and wish it more than anything. To think that a psychopath in jail is more free than I am is a bit of a head spin, almost enough to wonder if you’re doing anything wrong with your life? If anyone wants to be listened to, just mention freedom and slavery. Powerful words with emotion behind them. No one wants to be a slave or a prisoner. I tend to be obsessed with freedom, which is ironic really.
