I wonder what the German word for "Segway" is - since it's a product, probably the same thing.

Is Übergang the German word for 'segue' - which BillG is UBER good at, right GANG?

 

Segway is Segway in german! :-}

Falling aslepp or staying awake could depend on whether or not someone else were in bed with you; after all, that is a pretty smooth playlist.

Air, Zero 7, Hooverphonic; all great bands I discovered here.  Ironic that 35 years ago those bands would have driven me batty in 90 seconds.  Or maybe no so ironic -- 35 years gives plenty of opportunity to change.

 Good call yellowfish - You're referring to 'You do something to me' of course. similar progression, but I think Air have their own vibe going on which differentiates them and also the utilisation of electronica further separates them from Wellers more earthy approach to things.

Interesting comment.  Perhaps that is why I prefaced libertarian with 'my'.  Libertarianism defines freedom with respect to the State or perhaps the States of others who send their armies, for example.  

 

Nobody is suggesting that the government regulate the use of profanity on privately hosted web-sites.  It is understood that people do and should use social interaction to influence the use of profanity.  In the absence of State intervention, that interaction in principle precludes violence. Once violence including property destruction manifests itself, the State is rarely far behind.

Even radical Libertarians would agree that throwing insults in public must be limited by the force of law due to the value of reputations.  Hence the nuanced treatment of private insults versus very public insults.

Well put.  I agree absolutely.  Deploying profanity effectively in some circles takes skill and social sensitivity.  In others not.  

Question is: should traditional peoples who suffer some sort of injury upon hearing profanity in their presence be made to suffer the indignity and general lack of respect?  It is one way of communicating disrespect.

Secular materialism does not have to be disrespectful to traditional approaches to what works out to be essentially social cohesion.

I suppose this is all linked to my own personal concerns about violent colonialism and other forms of resource appropriation such as demographic flooding.  I understand the temptation to exploit the weaknesses of other peoples; other peoples' weaknesses are like the irresistible pull of sex or the call of highly addictive narcotics.  Unfortunately the dominating party often suffers too.  Invading and occupying somebody else's territory is no longer as profitable as it once was.

The banalization of profanity is a relatively new, recent development.  I don't know what to think.  Unlike many liberal and left-wing bullies, I abhor shoving this sort of symbolic trash down the throats of conservative, traditional peoples.  My libertarian utopia does not include gratuitously disrespecting people.
