  1. "… but it doesn't stay in the brain. It goes through the whole body."

    The body is the brain, and the brain is the body, by extension of itself. My fingertips are my brain reaching outwards. People tend to think of the brain in the wrong terms, like it's some standalone organ, separate from the rest of the body, but it isn't. The entire body is the brain's extension of itself.

  2. Relentless sophistry amounting to nothing more than emotionally driven attacks at people who disagree with his "love" for socialism and pointing the finger at everyone who's not "oppressed".
    His use of the Bible and Jesus does net him a much lower dislike/like ratio, which is pretty sneaky of him, but overall he's just another tiresome communist who claims love for everyone and enlightenment for the soul but ironically also endorses violence against the "evil" capitalists.

  3. If this isn’t a perfect example of historical revisionism in order to propagate and proliferate Marxist ideology, then I don’t know what is. This man stands on the shoulders of giants while looking down on them and spitting in their faces. The Marxist promotes this false illustration of western history in order to vilify its thinkers and demonize the foundation in which it was built upon, so that he can tear it all down and begin constructing his utopian vision. How can someone who claims to be so literate in biblical themes be so ignorant of the human condition? He views the west as a historical battle between multiple groups and classes seeking purely dominance and power. Rather, the West, the United States in particular, is the product of a Judeo-Christian worldview in constant battle with the fallen nature of mankind. Through recognition of the authority of a Devine creator and people being the reflection of Him, we have fought back our natural and biological tendencies to dominate and oppress; and instead have fought to promote virtue, honor, duty, self discipline, and the love of God and His creation. It is you Mr. West that suffers from a superficial perspective of the world. I pray for your conversion and enlightenment.

  4. Capitalism is 100% based on a free ride. You invest your money and then sit on your arse and receive your dividend/profits every 3 months. Completely irrational for right-wingers against "a free ride" not to be critics of Capitalism!
