Comment: Well....That was a waste of time.

(See in situ)

Well....That was a waste of time.

Sorry to be rude off the bat - but your post introducing your writing was rude and a turn-off to begin with. But, I followed your links anyway, hoping your gimme-generation bleating was just temporary.

But alas....So you basically, in a poorly written piece of philosophical drivel, are telling people who have not studied "continental (European) philosophy" that they are morons and wasting their time doing anything else. Then, you fail to tell us the central core of that philosophy or how it differs from say, John Locke or Thomas Paine, the fathers of the American Enlightenment and probably philosophies that people on the DailyPaul agree with, even if they've never read them.

I've been through a lot since 2006, philosophically and otherwise. Many people here have. After all the sign-waving and trying to wake people up in '07 (and fun!), the countless hours recruiting caucus goers and taking over local events, to '12 with it's more top-down fiasco, to Rand Paul stomping on my heart, and much more...I can only keep trying. I am more about agorism and bartering now - but still have a little hope there can be more people awakened.

For you to tell us you are the only "right" one -- well, perhaps it will take some actual writing, perhaps gramar and semantics that do not make you sound like a juco freshman rejected by a fraternity, and for YOU to expose your thoughts and actions for review by others.
