Sometimes those who seem a little crazy are the ones who really get it.

The Laingian concept of hypersanity, though modern, has ancient roots. Once, upon being asked to name the most beautiful of all things, Diogenes the Cynic (412-323 BCE) replied parrhesia, which in Ancient Greek means something like uninhibited thought', free speech', or full expression'. Diogenes used to stroll around Athens in broad daylight brandishing a lit lamp. Whenever curious people stopped to ask what he was doing, he would reply: I am just looking for a human being' " thereby insinuating that the people of Athens were not living up to, or even much aware of, their full human potential.

The problem with the sane people is that Dotard made it acceptable for the insane bullies to shout them down and threaten their lives to get their way.

I see it every day in real life.

There is no discussion. Only shouting and blatant threats of death.

And the genius

The problem with you normies is you don't recognize true genius until it's too late.

Remember when people thought the OK symbol was Nazi, and a Hispanic truck driver in LA got fired for flicking a booger?

Yes and No.
Recall a time a swastika was just a swasrika?

Swastika, not swasrika.

Remember KAL-007? It was the perfect way to decapitate the John Birch Society.

In ancient Sumeria, the first civilization, its civilization began when a fish-god came out of the sea and taught people how to make beer so we could all get along together at the beach party.

Ancient Sumeria discovered farming, and a hundred years later herding, because if you can do it with plants....

These are the same stories because you can't have beer without farming.

Started reading the article, couldn't figure out what the point was, if any.

Skipped to the end and saw that the writer was a self-described "philosopher." Realized that I was wasting my time.

"In ancient Sumeria, the first civilization,"

HA! You drank the kool-aid!

#12 That was the first city we know of, Ur. And it was beer, not kool-aid. About 10,000 or so years ago? It's been awhile and that fish-god could through a hell'a party.

#12 I'll bet you don't even know how to get rid of a ghost:

"At sunrise towards the sun you make the ritual arrangements and set up two carnelian vessels of beer. You set in place a special vessel..."
