As part of NATO Britain belongs to the same empire... so does Estonia.

Both are colonial possessions.

Our brains are programmed to see ourselves as both separate (unique) and together with others who we see as similar to us (for whatever reason). The latter requires some theory of mind. We are programmed for survival of the self, and as humans for survival of the group and groups form because at one point that gave us a competitive advantage. That is why people have such attachment to social and national groups.

There is an internal struggle between the two. But normal programming is the same throughout. We all have the same instincts, the same capacity for prejudice and schadenfreude. It is only by overcoming our programming that we can progress as a human group and achieve more than we have to date. But whether that is ever going to be possible is doubtful given the strength of programming.

Your empire has achieved a great deal acting as one group of very disparate individual factions. Men on the moon, that kind of thing...

Abe "critical" of Russia? I say it like I see it. Just because I don't pretend it's perfect doesn't mean I single it out any more than any other country. I just happened to be posting on that forum. On this forum I have been "critical" of Poland. So what? I'd do the same on any other forum where there is a national debate.
But what the heck does this have to do with your Jewish debate with Hal? Uther has a crush on me that's all. He follows me around the boards like a puppy looking for attention. I try not to slur any ethnic group. People here are obsessed with pigeonholing me, but I see humans as one group.
You have a point Annie. I can understand your viewpoint that you don't think you are critical of Russia. Indeed you use facts in your observations of Russia and I haven't seen you attack Russia per se.

You are also right that you have been....as you put it "critical" of Poland. I noticed that too, that not all your observations about Poland have been rosy.....which you have every right to make.

Heck you have even been critical of me at times LOL. But that's OK......I understand where you were coming from and you were just giving your opinion of my conversations with Hal where I agreed with him on some controversial things. That's fair.

As for uther....I just thought his comments about you being "Ugly Annie" and a "Stalker"....and other slurs against you were just childish mean spririted attacks on his part. Hal is hell bent in believing that uther is a raving Jewish nationalist and according to Hal, uther is OBSESSED WITH JEWS AND DEFENDING JEWS. But I have seen you write here for years and I have NEVER seen you attack or degrade Jews.....so it makes no sense for this Hal designated "Raving Jewish nationalist OBSSESSED with defending Jews" named utherpendragon.....to attack you with his many personalities on these forums.

That's just my opinion.
