As asinine as I find your whole rant to be, I will give it a go.
What exactly does this bird dream have to do with anything? I dreamed about titties and beer last night if that is of any consequence.
You propose a false dichotomy. Is there not a third option? Being calculative, yet not doing so against other people. There are likely multiple other options beyond that. I do not see how exactly being calculative, even against other people, is necessarily causal or otherwise linked to the obliteration of humanity that you propose. What exactly is this womens perspective you speak of? And how will it help us all to flourish? Further what do you mean exactly by the word flourish, as its meaning can surely be relative?
I think your lady friend falls short in the reasoning department, I do not understand the you can't mess up what you don't understand And if we have grown up to see 2+2 = 5 it was all a lie to begin with so how can you really punish for confusion or misunderstanding statement, it seems like a non sequitur to me.
As for your rant of typical collegiate liberalism, I think it can be easily agreed that many of the things you propose exist political facades, lack of openness, a paucity of discussion aimed at solutions before action is taken. I hate to break this too you my friend, but power dynamics are at play at all levels, and across all of the history of human life. While the level of exploitation and violence involved therewith are usually in flux, the role of power in human life is ever-present. And what is all of this talk of machines? As poorly articulated and reasoned as is your introduction of this topic I imagine that this is something that you picked up from your chick, I expect that your reasoning is much better than that. I do not mean to dispute the idea (although I do disagree with it on some levels), only to point out that in order for it to be better grasped by others that it need be presented in a better reasoned manner.
What constitutes nurturing in your mind, and how would that quality be seen to affect politics, world affairs, etc.? Similarly, how would this be applied to business? If I assume that you mean more akin to the womens perspective you propose, and therefore diametrically opposed to calculative behavior, I conclude that such a person has no place in business simply for the reason that businesses exist for the express purpose of turning a profit, of which calculative behavior is a significant part. I find it quite narrow minded to limit certain behavioral characteristics to one gender or other defining characteristic. Although it is readily apparent that there is a less than representative proportion of women in both politics and business, such patronizing calls for a shift to a more representative and inclusive constitution of these realms are exactly that patronizing.
The link between the higher order (although I am not entirely sure what you mean by this) and warfare should not be made. That said, violence and some warfare are virtually unavoidable parts of life, for the entirety of recorded history warfare has existed between various groups across the globe and on a smaller level violence is always being exercised by individuals and groups. Even in a supposedly enlightened society where the higher order may exist, there will invariably be those that exercise violence for whatever fleeting reason that they see fit to do so (you may wish to call them the bad apples) and a response of some measure of violence and punishment will likely result. This is something that an enlightened society will recognize.
And that has what exactly to do with that assertion that we are all tools (aside from the obvious use of the same word)? Come on man, if you are going to make such sweeping claims please do so in a more well reasoned manner so that people can at least respond and engage in productive debate (you did say that was a good idea above didn?t you?). Your assertion that we are all tools leaves little room for discussion aside from a response of agreement or disagreement.
You are correct I do not understand, but that is entirely attributable to your inability to construct the complex sentences that you seek to, thereby obfuscating whatever point you wish to make here.
MY TAKE is that your post basically sounds like a laundry list of this chick's assertions that were simply regurgitated here, owning largely to the lack of support through reasoning or evidence. I ask that you start thinking with your head and not your dick. Take this new outlook on reality and add it to all of the perspectives that you can examine life from, try to acquire more perspectives from the people you meet as your life progresses. Just don?t commit yourself to one perspective as you seem to be doing here, that is far too limiting an unproductive. Simply complaining about all of the ills of the world as seen from your vantage point amounts to little more than the typical political discussion that takes place amongst students: enough complaining to go around and not one proposed solution with the least bit of viability in sight. All of the pot shots at Bush are quite unnecessary and pointless. I am not fond of the present composition of political power, but it is quite narrow minded to place the ills of a system on one person, it amounts to little more than scapegoating. And we all know how little systemic reform ever emerges from problematic situations that are resolved through the sacrificing of one or a few scapegoats. If problems are the doing of one or a few people who act unethically there are no changes that need to be made to the system in which the operate or to the statutes that regulate that system (Just wait and see how little systemic change there is in the fallout of the lobbying scandal presently in the headlines). I think you will come to moderate some of your above assertions as you ponder the claims and their bases, and as you gain more experience in the real world and in life.
