The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

The Narcissist exists whereby every activity and relationship is defined by the hedonistic need to acquire the symbols of spiritual wealth, this becoming the only expression of rigid, yet covert, social hierarchies. It is a culture where liberalism only exists insofar as it serves a consumer society, and even art, sex and religion lose their liberating power.

It depends on whether or not, in attacking another one's views, that one is themselves also necessarily "attacked". Do you really think these can always be separated out from each other, a person's views and the person themselves? Such separation may be maintained only at the surface level, which is where, when we are bound by "not hurting other people's feelings" or not "personally attacking them" (always in the eye of the beholder), the conversation always remains..

...not replying to the points that a poster has made, but instead conjuring up a reply based on a poster's known beliefs is a valid reason for them to report a post.
