In other words you're saying this is similar to all those jury choosing strategies lawyers employ and part of the judicial game?
Isn't the problem more profund and having to do with some judicial positions needing campaigning and thus campaign money? I'd worry about that if I was you...
It's the same phenomena, stuff we associate with young women and dismiss but that is hardly limited to them and just a sign of the changing nature of pronunciation. In other words you're just ye olde curmudgeon if it bothers you, it is not a sign of decadence.I don't think I've read anything interesting about vocal fry though, some opinion pieces. Uptalking has more material behind it or I've just not come upon the right stuff.
Universalism by itself isn't truly a philosophy but a characteristic of some philosophies. Capitalism and Socialism are both Universalist philosophies and they also share a cult of progress, meaning the socialist order that I would favour can also lead to environmental meltdown if left unchecked. Progressivism if meant in that way may indeed be what some groups are reacting against.Not sure what you mean with purity-signalling. If you want to say that what people here call...
“Hitler! Keep your dirty hands off our dirty Jews!"This is typical thinking and can be easily explained, it isn't even a contradiction per se...
Is there any topic on which you do not hold a fucking stupid opinion?Here's some educamation you dolt:http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=568
There are no clear answers to questions of sexuality such as these, this is why the "ask consent for every action you take" checklist is deemed ridiculous but we understand the problems they are trying to solve anyway. Are we raising and educating people who can exert proper value judgments though? I think not.
USA and Canada are basically multicultural by definition, it is their constitutive nature. We're not talking Germany here, everyone is a mutt but Americans are recent mutts.
The symbolic weight would be a diplomatic nuke and destroy the relationship with these countries, we're talking expulsions of ambassadors and severing of the diplomatic link, move to back-channel talks to solve the situation. BTW Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are both USA allies so tough luck. You're also aware that for many countries the immigrants in question are mostly accepted for humanitarian reasons (think Scandinavia) which would remain an exception unless something...
Once again the logic of your argumentation crashes on the mountain of distinction between nations, groups and individuals. If the state of Sudan has a policy the USA disagrees with it may exert diplomatic pressure (say the aforementioned Carter ban on immigration + other assorted measures), this is usually done to change the existing policies the USA disagrees with and is, by definition, temporary although say the Cuban sanctions lasted for a long time.Now if some Ugandan...
