You are no longer admin, this is not your private fiefdom.
The problem here is that Twiggs and perhaps you too is that you both take an Aristotelian
philosophical approach to all things Leeds and perhaps to life.That is to say it is a Right/Wrong,
Truth/Lie, Up/Down, Inside/Outside, Thesis/Antithesis, outlook in that it has to
be one or the other.
Needless to say all wars, conflicts and upheavals are spawned from having such
strict dogmas and a move away to non-Aristotelian logic as espoused by
Alfred Habdank Skarbek Korzybski which deals with probabilities rather than certainties
would help you both to expand your world view and be more inclusive and more accepting
of other peoples Ideas and or opinions.
I propose Korzybski's Law
that can be invoked when when the Aristotelian mindset
takes over in a forum... much the same as Godwin's law which asserts; that
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1"
that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or
later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism.
To invoke Korzybski's Law
in a forum discussion and bring to an end to any Aristotelian
mindset that can not even stretch the imagination to include a Hegelian synthesis from the
thesis/antithesis hypothesis, I would suggest that any forum member just has to say WIBBLE
and the thread then has to engage in a NUll-A conversation as A. E. van Vogt so succintly put it.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.
