Re: How progressive see themselves as apolitical

Yeah, I was kind of raised to think of Marx, Nietzche, and Freud as the "masters of suspicion" or if you want more postmodern lingo they used "the hermeneutic of suspicion". I agree that whatever their problems are Freud and Nietzsche are a bit more salvageable. But it's also partially their own fa...

Re: How progressive see themselves as apolitical

It might be interesting to compare and contrast Nietzsche and Marx. Nietzsche was a kind of master sceptic and pointed to biology (Freud did this as well) roots and that lead him to avoid ideas as such, and psychologize and "diagnose" things. Marx did this with more environmental "material conditio...

Re: How progressive see themselves as apolitical

I think you have to chuck in some liberal post-millennialism too. I suppose that's kind of implicit in Hegel but the ultra universalism of the progressive morality seems very much a post-Christian position. I think succinctly the progressives are a fusion of Foucault, and Hegelianism/post-Christian ...

Re: FB bans political ad for briefly depicting Cambodian genocide

B) if I had to guess it would seem like poor Soren is the third wheel in a two party race and would get at best 5% of the vote. Not sure how it works in the UK but in America if I see a political ad attacking two candidates, that's definitely the third party candidate.... or at best the energized d...

Emails from the site may take time

The emailing system in phpBB is apparently notoriously bad for sending emails to users which is particularly annoying when wanting to rest passwords etc. I've done a little bit to try sorting it but major fixes are technically beyond me. One way to jump start the emails I think is to visit the site ...

All righty, just tried to reset my password, the email took exactly 2 hours to arrive.
Thanks for that. That isn't ideal but the tech changes to attempt to improve that are somewhat beyond me.

I haven’t noticed e-mails coming in any slower these days.
If it's not too annoying could you attempt to reset your password and see how long the email takes to arrive? I would do it but I don't want to risk an error since I'm the only one with admin ability
