Any intelligent person with the slightest bit of logical reasoning or critical thinking, who has actually done serious research into crt will quickly see an inane amount of logical inconsistencies and holes in the reasoning from beginning to end. It’s unbelievably dumb. Funnily enough, this actually creates a sort of paradox in that according to their beliefs, whites view members of other races as lesser, primarily in areas pertaining to intelligence. After doing some research, it was CRT itself which gave me reason to believe that this (that blacks are less intelligent), might actually be true! Certainly the people who came up with it were. Or maybe they were actually geniuses because they realized that by propagating this manure, they would be able to get away with pretty much anything…
I’m not just spouting what I heard from other people, I did the research because of all the hype that was going on about it and @ubiquitin, I suggest you do the same. If you’d like I can try and post some of the source material I used, but unless you have an agenda, you should be able to come to these conclusions simply by reading the original source material from the theory’s founders, and they were written years before it was twisted into something way worse by the morons of today.
A book is appropriate if it is lacking in inappropriate material.
I am indeed aware of that. That doesn’t change the fact of what I said. Obviously, most parents would rather their kid read nice jewish books. However, in a case where they fail to interest the kid, what’s wrong with a clean English book if it will only do good?
First of all, what’s considered ‘the wrong books’? Clearly we don’t hold that all non Jewish books are assur or no one would be able to go to college where there is always textbooks and required reading. Some would argue that it’s assur to go to college anyway, but that’s not the question here. So if we’re talking about novels, the fact is that contrary to what many would have you believe, there are a ton of absolutely clean books out there and personally I see no problem with them. I think we can all agree that it is healthy and necessary for people to be educated, literate, to have a decent vocabulary and to be generally proficient in their language, all of which reading accomplishes, it would seem that not only is there nothing wrong with English novels, but rather that they should be recommended. Additionally, the source that ujm brought does not exist as far as I could find, at least not in that place.
I obviously am as outraged as the rest over this horrible incident. However it does raise the question: according to Halacha, are you required to do whatever it takes to extend the life of a patient even if you know for a fact that they are experiencing immense pain and there is no chance of recovery? What if the patient is lucid and is in so much pain specifically from the meds/machinery that he/she requests to be taken off them and be allowed to die naturally? Do we force them to stay on them against their will? And in the case of of a non lucid or comatose patient, where it’s causing them pain wouldn’t it be tzaar baalei chayim to keep them on? What are the gedarim? Again, I’m not talking about this specific case as it was proven that she was experiencing no pain at all. This is clearly just another sign that our world is just messed up beyond repair
@shmili_oongar when a Bachur has a flip it is no indication whatsoever of what kind of person he is or what kind of lifestyle he wants to lead. Obviously for many it is, but those kind of bachurim are not the ones putting apps on their phones. Many bachurim would get a smartphone in a heartbeat if it would be socially acceptable, but since it isn’t, and they don’t want to get kicked out of yeshiva, this is sort of their way of ‘ hating the system’. They’re not just doing it to ‘look more frum’ they just aren’t interested in getting kicked out of yeshiva and branded as a ‘smartphone’ guy
Water is in fact not wet at all, but there are
thousands of minuscule invisible creatures
living inside each molecule of water who
constantly wash the water to clean their
homes, giving it a wet sensation.
Most people who put apps on their flip phones
(And therefore don’t want to TAG it), simply
remove the browser on way which it cannot be
restored unless you delete everything on the phone.
However there are many apps which are available to
be put on flip phones which are just as bad, such as
Telegram, you tube, Spotify and even Netflix. You
have to be careful.September 30, 2021 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm in reply to: Why are there no Gibson guitars in Jewish Music bands #2011092
Btw I was at a ishay ribo concert recently
and the lead guitarist was using a Les PaulSeptember 3, 2021 9:42 am at 9:42 am in reply to: Why are there no Gibson guitars in Jewish Music bands #2005702
@onemanband although bentzi Marcus does occasionally use gibsons, the guitar I’ve seen him with most often is actually a fender telecaster. I think the main reason most Jewish bands don’t use lp’s is simply because they are extremely expensive. You can get amazing sound out of almost any decent guitar if you’re good enough and you
know how to work your amps, electric guitar is extremely
versatile in that you can get pretty much any sound you want with some basic knowledge and the right
equipment. One of the best guitarists I know (he’s played
on many recordings as well as weddings), uses an Ibanez gio, which retails at around $200. I know I’m a little late to the conversation but I’m just seeing this thread for the first time now, sorry.
