Salt Creek,

You said the goal of unifying the world under one banner…

...is frequently diagnosed as a specific sort of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

I asked for your references.

What would suit you as documentation of this as a “frequent” diagnosis? Let me guess: A peer-reviewed statistical study.

The question is not what would satisfy me, but rather what sources satisfied you such that you refer to them in support of your point.

I hope you acknowledge that anyone not trafficking in divinity (even as a hypothetical worthy of further investigation) is going to have problems with this.

I don’t think its expecting too much from this particular crowd.

Religions at least merit serious consideration… as possible examples of delusional psychopathology.

Fair enough.  I’ll grant that as a possibility but I won’t presume that.

This is obviously a Utilitarianism vs. Libertarianism argument. It is so fundamental that no argument can really be made.

Salt Creek has discovered the meaning of the first half of “Nulono”. Now, what language uses “nul” for zero?
