It may have escaped your notice, but this is an Internet discussion forum, and RO members are using computers and/or smart phones to participate. And since our folks are using electricity, I’ll bet many/most probably have electronic things such as microwaves, cordless phones, and clock radios. For that matter - this is a stretch, I know - I doubt any RO member’s home lacks indoor plumbing.
I’ve a question for you, one that is serious and more to your point. Do you “embrace” millennia-old ideas such as murder, rape, theft, and kidnapping being wrong?
Believing homosexuality is morally wrong and rejecting the idea of same-sex marriage is not hatred for homosexuals (my choice of words) or “anti-homosexual”. My church believes homosexuality is morally wrong and rejects same-sex marriage, yet has gladly participated in a charitable event whose organizers include many homosexuals, the AIDS Walk in San Jose (and not secretly).
Real people are usually vastly more complex than the labels slapped on them. Maybe you should leave off those labels and get to know the real people.
As I pointed out above, that statement is absurd.
Another straw man stereotype. With the exception of one member I haven’t seen post in many months, no one here is anywhere close to an anarchist. The people you thus label actually embrace the US Constitution, and want the US government to return to doing just those functions delineated by the USC.
People disagree with you? Believe their ideas are right? And express their disagreement in strong terms? How (YAWWWWWN) shocking! Now, look in a “mirror” … do you believe your ideas are right? Do you express your ideas strongly? And are fine with that? Apply to others the standard you apply to yourself. If you need an Internet Echo Chamber, I’m sure you could find one if you tried.
“Reasoning” from straw man arguments tends to go awry, and does here. It’s almost as if you started from a conclusion and crafted your straw men to “prove” it.
As I suggested above, in the realm of ideas modernity is not necessarily the same as good. Consider just a few of the ideas that were modern in the 20th Century:
Africans and Asiatics are inferior races that Caucasians would supplant;
Marxist Socialism would usher in workers’ paradises;
Being a human being is defined by the vague and flexible idea of “personhood”, rather than genetics (Are you a “person” rudolph? Can you prove it?).
Only one of those ideas has been entirely rejected, despite the misery and slaughter all three have caused.
