    Yeah, why do airlines serve such shitty food. Like, why do they serve tuna sandwiches? Why aren't you eating a ham sandwich? DON'T YOU KNOW HAM SANDWICHES ARE x100 BETTER?! I BET YOU ONLY BUY YOUR SANDWICHES AT MAINSTREAM PLACES LIKE SUBWAY! I IMPORT MINE FROM MOROCCO; I BET YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THAT IS.

    Morocco is like the Arab nation that no one ever complains about despite them doing the same shit as everyone else.

    Morocco is like, the United States' first friend. We've probably been allies with Morocco longer than any other country.

    It's a pointless argument used by people who have nothing else

    I swear every teacher from 5th grade to 9th grade: "Well, y'know, we don't even know if anything outside this classroom door even exists." WE GET IT YOU TOOK PHILOSOPHY 1000 IN YOUR UNDERGRAD.

    Valid but unsound.
    No, the general idea is that most people's political ideologies aren't the product of an extremist belief system. Hence an individual is expected to be an informed citizen and vote with whatever slants closest to his/her own personal value system. It's not that not voting means you agree with what's going on, it's about effectively doubling some extremist vote you no doubt disagree with on a fundamental level, but because you've got it I to your head that the dynamics at play here are simple as binary code, you've missed that crucial voting incentive.

Listening to Death Cab for a Cutie and reading David Foster Wallace are probably both to blame, but at least it's made for some cracking poetry.

    Well, if you take into account The Third Assessment report's findings, there's new and stronger evidence that most global warming over the last sixty years is attributable to human beings, specifically greenhouse gas emissions. Yes, the whole thing is cyclical, but we're certainly not slowing down the process by any means.

    I'm glad philosophy has helped you not become a better person.

    Conversely, realising you are the master of your own skull-sized universe means you start living life on your own terms rather than how others may or may not perceive you. I can't think of very much social psychological phenomenons like that which pretty much make you a better person by default.
