You people so out of touch with reality can call anything true, edgy, and seem to think that discredits it. Homo sapiens sapiens aren't some highly evolved, non-violent, perfected creature that rises above everything gritty and real in the world. That's the truth. War and massacres are a part of human nature because its in the nature of animals.

You know what would happen massive outrage and jailtime. Of course, that's because we have both professional armies and a culture with a high degree of self-loathing, which translates to demonising our own soldiers as heartless killers.

I'm European, and it's pretty bad, here. We had one public proscecutor who tried to put a soldier in jail for the unconfirmed killing of some civvy in Iraq. Dude got off the plane, and was dragged into court by one of those holier-than-thou pricks who would call a suicide bombing an "act of defense".

No nignog, the simple fact is: If you think you can say anything by comparing human beings to ants, you are fucking retarded. And you ARE trying to say something, because you claim it's proof that killing and genocide is genetically part of the human organism.

But ants also have fucking exeskeletons and six limbs, which are NOT part of the human makeup. They're too different from us the make claims, you dumb cunt.

Well you done made yourself a part of the argument Cletus, so you better be ready for those (You)s, boy!

Anyways, the premise of my argument was that other animals (and evidently insects) will kill each other for the exact same reasons, but for some reason, sheltered people like the anon I originally responded to think that only people exhibit this sort of behavior, which is false. Me using an example in insects isn't bad either, it doesn't invalidate the fact that non-human animals do it, and it just might even make a good case for such acts being universal in nature too.

Since you asked reasonably I am going to explain, but this will be my last reply. I'm not going to get into a great big long winded argument with someone who, I sincerely hope, is being deliberately silly.

A fallacy fallacy is trying to build a specific argument based on nothing except using someone else's poor argument. So for example if someone claimed Big Macs are unhealthy because they have lettuce in them and I then said this proves Big Macs are healthy because they made a stupid argument this would be a fallacy fallacy. It isn't some catch all come back when someone points out you have made a logical fallacy. I haven't tried to build any sort of case for a moral system based on nothing but your shitty argument being wrong. I will save discussion of moral systems for a thread that isn't about photos, I've just pointed out you are making a fallacy. No fallacy fallacy has been made.

A naturalistic fallacy takes the form of...

>X is true according to nature.
>Therefore, X is morally right.

You are saying X (genocide etc) is true in nature (ants and apes do it!). Therefore genocide etc is morally right.

Good day.

Nobody is saying genocide is right you fucking autistic little shit. IT COULDN'T HURT TO READ THE FUCKING THREAD BEFORE POSTING.
>>
>>593929
I don't think anyone ever claimed that genocide and killing are morally right, everyone is responding to the question of 'why do humans kill?'. People are arguing that those things aren't something humanity has a monopoly on.
>>
>>593929
I'm not this guy but
>>593934 is right, I didn't once mention that genocide was "right" or "good" just that it is what it is, and is silly to think people are evil for doing something that comes to us naturally, like in other creatures. We're the only ones that seem to be conflicted about it, which was why I was so initially upset.

yeah, and no one is saying genocide is right.
>>
>>593885

I can see what he's trying to say, and I think it's a fair comparison.

This sort of thing predates ants or humans, and one way or another we will find ways to kill one another whether it is with spears, swords, guns, or red tape and paperwork.

Not saying it's an entirely accurate assessment, but I see what he is saying.

>>
>>592979
>>593807

Nope.

Bromberg Poland 3rd or 4th September 1939, couple days after German invasion Poles started executing their own German minority. So they are Polish citizens and they are being executed by Poles. Around 250 ethnic Germans were massacred, around 80 Poles who intervened were also shot, along with 20 or so Polish army deserters. Few days later Germans took over and killed around 800 Poles and 300 Jews in reprisal.

>Nazis didn't spew out their propaganda from nothing

Actually, they did. The interwar period was a bad time to be a member of an ethnic minority. But actually the German minority in Poland was relatively the best treated minority in Europe. Precisely because the Germans were quick to use any real of perceived violations of ethnic Germans' rights to raise an irredentist case against Poland. Poles weren't saints, that's right. It sucked to be an Ukrainian in Poland for example. But being an ethnic German was actually pretty good, as evidenced by the number of German newspapers, schools, organisations, political parties, MPs and Senators. As the war came closer, Poland took even more measures to ensure that Germany has nothing to put forward as a case against Poland. So yes, those massacres supposedly committed against ethnic Germans were made up. They have been long abandoned by any academic historians and continue to live only on the Internet, perpetuated and spread by /pol/-minded retards.

If memory serves the guy holding him was the units translator. He and/or his family grew up under Sadams rule. He got pretty emotional about finding him in the interview I saw.

It's stil amazing. You fuck'em up in WWI, they stand up. Totally fucked in WWII, almost entirely country destroyed. They stand up and twenty years later Germany is not only economicaly sustainable but also on the way to become the most influential country of Europe.
Fuck, they are doing something right...

pipes are probably the ultimate musical instrument - you can make it sound like you're killing a pig or you can make the most heart warming instrumentals that will make bearded men cry.

Wrong ni chan, good and evil are just based on social compliances of which most cases are based on religion. We ARE creatures of habit, only we are fulfilling these habits in a complex social bubble. Any human can be convinced to break its moral compass when the stage is set well enough.

It's hard to tell how she's feeling, is she afraid, defiant, curious?

Whatever the case is, it always serves as a reminder of the horrors of war and how it rob childhoods.
