  12. while nietzsche is by far the best character in this i still take mild offense as a nihilist that he is simply portrait as being angry.

  13. "A bowl is most useful when it is empty."
    First of all, what is that metaphor supposed to mean. Especially in this context. It sounds like something cool you post on instagram with out knowing what it means.
    Second, sure a bowl is most useful when it's empty, but if you don't Use it and put something in it, then any use it has is worthless anyways??

  14. "What is winning?" was the first thing in this video to make me actually laugh out loud. If that happened more often I might need an acronym for it?

  17. Am I the only one who thought "get out the way" is the best line in this rap battle? You know, considering it is not just anyone but its Lao Chi.

  18. The difference?
    Lets look at… Their results…

    Socrates, Voltaire and Nietzsche helped at least develop Western Societies in societies of free thought and forward progression. Today's Western World is a product of the application of their ideologies that benefit society (even if we don't FULLY adopt their philosophies).

    Meanwhile. China became a series of dynasties, then became Communist… Now it doesn't even know what it is… Communist government, questionable "capitalist" market, with a very weak military (yeah, they have numbers, but intel reports indicate that they have under performing troops among their numbers with an even HIGHER chronic number of individuals with serious ailments than US troops, and they've not even seen any actual warfare, so most of it is predominantly genetic).

    And Sun Tzu was the only real influencer. His book, the Art of War, is the only applicable element in which his teachings ON warfare spread the globe… Creating the basis of professional armies worldwide…

  20. A NATION 08s I would ask a person of confident motivations a Socratic Question. What are your opposing conceptualizations?
    "You look like a cop." You ain't gonna be looking at nothing when I punch your ass in the eye MF. Metaphorical, even if a bit gay. You ain't gonna be looking either way.
