I just said I didn’t believe a species could evolve from another.
I don´t know about you, but my body bear the marks of my species once having a tale. Besides, you do realise that the whole notion of dividing living things into "species" is a human endeavour? We could define a birdsegg as a specie, different from birds, and then claim evolution made it into a bird - but we choose not to.
And as to your claim Obama is “right” as far as the political spectrum goes please enlighten us.
I am glad to say I don´t have to; the study of political therory and philosophy by far outdates me - and even though I have studied them the depth of the field far exceeds my knowledge of it. So, if you are truly curious about it, knock your socks of studying it.
Where is the evidence for this and how do you define “right”?
"Right" in political context is conservative, in contrast to socialism (left), with liberalism left there hanging in the middle. Pretty basic stuff this?
See "utilitarism". A sort of central part of political thoughts that opposed feudalism in Europe and its colonies during the 18:th and 19:th century. Even though the revolution and creation of your country came out of these thoughts, and even though Obama identify himself with the notion of "utilitarism", the society he governs - and have the power to change - seldom do. Regardless of past, USA is a quite conservative society, and even though you can take a president out of the conservative USA it seems hard to take the conservative USA out of a president.
Also I'd love to hear some of your thoughts on how socialism and communism has affected other countries.
An interesting, but very complex question. A one sided conservative would no doubt claim the perfect example of socialism/communism is Khmer rouge of Cambodia, Kim dynasty of North Corea - or the Soviet union. A one sided socialist/communist might want to talk about health care in Cuba or the social and economical equality of DDR.
As for me, I am not saying high taxes and wellfare society is the only way to happiness, I simply note that looking at a list of the http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/world_now/2012/04/happiness-world-bhutan-meeting-denmark.html
, you might get that impression.
Where are you from again?
The kingdom of Sweden, where taxes financed me learning sufficient English (and German) to communicate with the world.
