Bill,

"Nellie copies and pastes false arguments, and then calls her theory proved. Gullible, isn't she?"

It's a lack of education and knowledge from her side, why she has to rely exclusively on copy-and-paste.

When she tries to write something without this function, we have to read nonsense a la 'Greece is east of Bulgaria', 'Goldman Sachs is a bank is not a bank is a bank', or 'Mohammed was born in the 11th century'...clearly signs of her 'brilliant' education and her 'highly cultured' family background, LOL.

DrFaust:

"I bet you never in your life wrote a single sentence on your own without the help of the copy-and-paste function."

That's a defining characistic of Google-worshipers. Idle worship at its purest.

Nellie copies and pastes false arguments, and then calls her theory proved. Gullible, isn't she?

"Why is it moral to serve the happiness of others, but not your own? If
enjoyment is a value, why is it moral when experienced by others, but
immoral when experienced by you?"

Blablabla.

It would be less boring for all of us when you just set the link to the website from which you copied your 'wisdom'.

In this case:

"http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/altruism.html"

I bet you never in your life wrote a single sentence on your own without the help of the copy-and-paste function.

What is the moral code of altruism? Who should be the beneficiary of
altruism? The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to
exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only
justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest
moral duty, virtue and value. Altruism declares that any action taken
for the benefit of others is good, and any action taken for one’s own
benefit is selfish. So long as the beneficiary is anybody other than
oneself, any crime is allowable.

Do not confuse altruism with kindness, good will or respect for the
rights of others. The irreducible primary of altruism, the basic
absolute, is self-sacrifice—which means; self-immolation,
self-abnegation, self-denial, self-destruction—which means: the self
as a standard of evil, the selfless as a standard of the good. Those
who start by saying: “It is selfish to pursue your own wishes, you
must sacrifice them to the wishes of others”—end up by saying: “It is
selfish to uphold your convictions, you must sacrifice them to the
convictions of others.”

Do not hide behind such superficialities as whether you should or
should not give a dime to a beggar. That is not the issue. The issue
is whether you do or do not have the right to exist without giving him
that dime. The issue is whether you must keep buying your life, dime
by dime, from any beggar who might choose to approach you. The issue
is whether the need of others is the first mortgage on your life and
the moral purpose of your existence. The issue is whether man is to be
regarded as a sacrificial animal. Any man of self-esteem will answer:
“No.” Altruism says: “Yes.”

Why is it moral to serve the happiness of others, but not your own? If
enjoyment is a value, why is it moral when experienced by others, but
immoral when experienced by you? If the sensation of eating a cake is
a value, why is it an immoral indulgence in your stomach, but a moral
goal for you to achieve in the stomach of others? Why is it immoral
for you to desire, but moral for others to do so? Why is it immoral to
produce a value and keep it, but moral to give it away? And if it is
not moral for you to keep a value, why is it moral for others to
accept it? If you are selfless and virtuous when you give it, are they
not selfish and vicious when they take it? Does virtue consist of
serving vice? Is the moral purpose of those who are good,
self-immolation for the sake of those who are evil?

The answer you evade, the monstrous answer is: No, the takers are not
evil, provided they did not earn the value you gave them. It is not
immoral for them to accept it, provided they are unable to produce it,
unable to deserve it, unable to give you any value in return. It is
not immoral for them to enjoy it, provided they do not obtain it by
right.

Such is the secret core of your creed, the other half of your double
standard: it is immoral to live by your own effort, but moral to live
by the effort of others—it is immoral to consume your own product, but
moral to consume the products of others—it is immoral to earn, but
moral to mooch—it is the parasites who are the moral justification for
the existence of the producers, but the existence of the parasites is
an end in itself—it is evil to profit by achievement, but good to
profit by sacrifice—it is evil to create your own happiness, but good
to enjoy it at the price of the blood of others.

Your code divides mankind into two castes and commands them to live by
opposite rules: those who may desire anything and those who may desire
nothing, the chosen and the damned, the riders and the carriers, the
eaters and the eaten. What standard determines your caste? What
passkey admits you to the moral elite? The passkey is lack of value.

Whatever the value involved, it is your lack of it that gives you a
claim upon those who don’t lack it. It is your need that gives you a
claim to rewards. If you are able to satisfy your need, your ability
annuls your right to satisfy it. But a need you are unable to satisfy
gives you first right to the lives of mankind.

A morality that holds need as a claim, holds
emptiness—non-existence—as its standard of value; it rewards an
absence, a defect: weakness, inability, incompetence, suffering,
disease, disaster, the lack, the fault, the flaw—the zero.

"Please stop with your plagarized "breeding" rant. You have expressed
it more than enough, even though it is not your idea in the first
place."

I know it is not my idea, but I agree with the Senator from South
Carolina who said it. When I heard him say it, I was ROTFLMAO!
What a guy! I hope he runs for president. I will vote for him. lol

Bulgaria Charity Concert Collects over BGN 0,8 M for Haiti Children

I also don't think we should keep feeding Haiti and Africa. Let natural selection take its course. Those who can save themselves will do so. Those who can't should not keep eating and breeding.

NELLIE,
Please stop with your plagarized "breeding" rant. You have expressed it more than enough, even though it is not your idea in the first place.

Blah, Blah, Blah, wipe your chin eh !?

" Altruism is an essential element in evolution. Without this, we would not exist. It should be stimulated as a noble characteristic of civilisation."

I disagree with your statement. No matter how much altruism you provide, you will never be able to equalize the global standard of living. You know why? Because you can't fight mother nature. Blood will tell, some species will perish while others will florish. Nothing you can do about it. Get over it and move on. Anyone who is incapable of survival should not survive. Altruism is a human invention and it is a bad invention. It is unnatural. Just like socialism and communism. Social engineering does not work.

Nelly, I disagree.

Altruism is an essential element in evolution. Without this, we would not exist. It should be stimulated as a noble characteristic of civilisation.

Recently, I was in Burkina Fasso for sponsoring waterpumps, and in Bangladesh for Leprosis patients and resistent TBC patients. We checked that the money was well spend.

Such actions bring wellness both to the donors, as to the people who benifit from it.

Anyone who contributes any money to any charity is a naive fool. The money rarely goes where it should go and even if some of it does go to the victims, it is a small percentage of the total donation.

I also don't think we should keep feeding Haiti and Africa. Let natural selection take its course. Those who can save themselves will do so. Those who can't should not keep eating and breeding.

Bulgaria collected 800.000 BGN for Haiti children. I'm sure even the poorest citizens did a contribution.

2 weeks later, a truck transporting relief aid for Haiti is stopped at the Hungarian border, containing hundreds of kilograms of heroin, street value 200.000 $/kg, maybe 100.000.000 BGN or a hundred times more than what the country collected through it's citizens...

Just a good example of how the organized crime with their high protection florishes in Bulgaria.

Bulgaria is now stripped from the list of Haiti donor trustees.

Wasn't the new EC commissioner Mrs. Georgieva going to Haiti one of these days? Luckily she already passed her EP hearing. She will have a nice wellcome in Haiti when they find out that she is Bulgarian.

Where are the reactions from the President, the PM, the ministers, the journalists on this newsfact?

Mourning in deep shame over the fact how deep their country has fallen?
