Re: Message from BK

So, yes; criticism is/should be allowed. Where else would you criticize BK but in the BK forum?

Not as a kind of BK booster club, so to speak, free of constructi...

Re: Criticism

The other thing I will say is that he showed up here with the mentality that everyone else has something to learn from him and he has nothing to learn from anyone else. Funny, Ashvin, because that's exactly what I think about you quite often. I'm not saying this to be a jerk. I'm just saying this t...

Re: Message from BK

I'm extremely allergic to views like "but it looks bad!". that attitude is essetially what drives cancel culture. If this isn't the place where depth is allowed, (resulting in discusisons that might be perceived as "criticism towards BK") i don't know what to say. So, yes; critic...

Re: Message from BK

I think some people come here for just the BK stuff. Having a 'just BK section would focus that traffic. Historically, this attachment to BK was implied in a sense; "everything" was about analytic idealism, but since the discussions now span a multitude of subjects, some not specifically a...

BUT, I wouldn't get my hopes up finding a better place where views are being discussed with such passion and tenacity without letting it implode int...
