    Interesting video.

    As a squishy liberal I relate to the message.

    As (something of) a cartoonist I relate to the delivery.


    But is this something that conservatives can relate to... or be repulsed by?

    Just askin'.

    But What About Lower Taxes For Rich People, Less Regulation, And What About Guns!?!?!?!

    ;)

    Edit: Somebody calmed down my yelling/caps. :( How am I supposed to seem smart with yelling? ;)

    OT: That video was excellent.

    I've been really enjoying this entire series of videos. This one was really interesting in a similar vein.

    Data base Adam and data base Eve, very cool

    This line of reasoning is spot on regarding "why we are here," in my view. We are here to connect with others.

    For a second, I thought MR had an automatic cap filter. Seems it doesn't.

    As for the video. Very interesting. I would wonder if they would be of the view that the human brain is a dichotomy: the part of self that empathizes and the part of the self that self-preserves. I'm sure it's much more complex, but I wonder if any simplified model could support that idea.
