Re: A dithering Obama emboldened China

So, other than the fourth through the twenty-first centuries, the history of Christianity was perfectly peaceful? If you're going to credit the good aspects of Western civilisation to Christianity, it's also on the hook for its ill aspects, particularly its centuries of chattel slavery.

Re: Great Depression’ ahead?

...the total debt has grown to dangerous levels. At some point the governments of the US, EU and Japan won't be able to pay. Why do you think this has come about? I put it down to a weakness in the one man one vote system which makes making the unpopular decision of cutting spending impossible. The...

Re: A dithering Obama emboldened China

Christianity has a way of bringing the concept of human rights into society unlike Socialism. The pro democracy movements that toppled dictatorships in Taiwan and S Korea were led by Christians. Maybe the Christian lamb will tame the red dragon. I'm afraid that history doesn't support such a sangui...

Re: The "Good" Censor: Google decides it can no longer support free speech

Re: The "Good" Censor: Google decides it can no longer support free speech

To Steve: Which browser would one use other than Chrome? Firefox, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, Safari... It's been a while since I used Firefox, but I could consider it again. I'm not a fan of Safari. To tell the truth, there is one reason to use Chrome : Google Earth works only with Chrome. Also, if you...
