I wish you all a happy and great Thanksgiving. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Would love to be in SoCal right now and celebrate this wonderful day with my family, relatives and friends.
Giving thanks to what we have and we don’t have.
Sharing food with those who don’t have anything.
Waaaait a minute! Isn’t Pharoah a “living god?” Aren’t gods supposed to be omniscient or does that only apply to the G-D of the Jewish and Christian cultures? Well, the Greek gods were fallable, so I guess…

How bout if Adam sues Eve?

Just now joining the conversation. Star Trek Discovery is in my top two favorite Star Trek series.
High production value
Deep ties to the original
Humanity, feeling, morality problems
It’s not boring
I’ll go out on a limb here an say most of TNG was just plain boring. There were a few interesting episodes but for the most part, boring. Every series after that followed suit until Discovery.
To me, it feels like Battlestar Galactica, The Expanse, Star Trek Original Series, and some of the Star Trek movies (new and old), and the result is great. The tie-in to the pilot was genius and basically solidified my opinion of the show.
Though, it must be blindingly bright everywhere on the ship with all of those lens flares. Even J.J. Abrams admited he over used it; why is this series doing the same? “Captain, getting those readings for … arrrgggh, the console is as bright as the sun!”
Now, I dig your logic … and I would add simply that the people of the American nation either have to be for democracy, and this can only be universal democracy, or they have to be against it. Perhaps this Kaplan is using some seige mentality “warrior” reasoning that prefers to avoid messy things like differences of opinion between nations, in favor of having a nice, neat, manageable world where the US gets all the goodies while five billion other people can live under dictators and totalitarian regimes.
I totally agree with you (your arguing with a universal democracy), that’s why i find it …. in german you’d call it “perfide”, having one thing, but for your very own and selfish interest not wanting that others have it, especially when it is regarded as a common “good”.
BTW, we didn’t have an India thread this far AFAIR. And even though it still may be (i wasn’t there) a tolerant nation, i fear that fanatism might rise there, though i hope it does not.
