Political Hubris Stopped

Though it's only a symbolic & non-binding measure, the U.S. Congress deserves kudos for, at least in a "symbolic" and "non-binding" manner, rejecting the President's hubris to send more troops into the unpopular, expensive, and unnecessary war zone of Iraq.

It's an exercise in hubris and greed to send more U.S. troops to fight a foreign cause on foreign soil for the personal agenda of a few wealthy elite. The U.S. troops are brave super-citizens (and really deserve to call themselves 'citizen' more than most), but, if called to combat, should be fighting for a justifiable cause.

Consumer Exploitation Agreed

I must agree with Iris.

Today is Valentine's Day, but why must we take a specific day of the year to focus on those we love? We should cherish our loved one's to our fullest all day every day. It seems this holliday was invented to sell chocolates and roses & smells like consumer exploitation.

Consumer Exploitation

I had originally posted this during the "Holiday" season titled "Hubris in the Holidays," but, apparently the system 'hiccuped' my entry out during an update. Anyway, I think the following (the former post) is relavant anytime:

Why is it that with every holiday season comes the inevitable question of consumer exploitation? Why is it that with every holiday season comes the barrage of claims that the holiday season was invented by corporations?

Hubris' Definition Continued II

NonEuclidean said:

Hubris, as applied to in this scenario, is the thing in which people stop truely communicating becuase one person(s) considers their opinion superior to other opinion, and goes so far as to think their opinion is "truth."

While this may be one element of Hubris, this is also true for beliefs, faiths, ego, and everything else that intrisicly prevents a person or body of people from "truely communicating."

Also, what is "true communication"? This should be further considered, defined, and explicated.

Finially Anti-Hubris

I'm sick of the "underdogs" becoming jerks as soon as they're on top. I'm sick of societies, individuals, cultures, sub-cultures, nations, corporations, etc. treating each other with such disrespect. Though the meaning of hubris ranges from inflated ego to the point of being a bullheaded ass, to outright malicious violence (malicious violence being much closer to "hubris" greek roots), it should be fought off at all levels and all areas of life.

This is the opportunity I've been looking for to find anti-hubris to balance hubris.

Hubris' Definition Continued (more like ongoing)

Hubris, as applied to in this scenario, is the thing in which people stop truely communicating becuase one person(s) considers their opinion superior to other opinion, and goes so far as to think their opinion is "truth."

Border Closures

Closing Borders is a controversial issue in the states, but Iraq is closing their border & for good reason: stop the hubris, the violence and everything else resulting from open borders.

Old(er) AntiHubris.com, RapidWeaver, and Drupal

There have been quite a few queries on this subject, so here's the (seemingly) final answer.

There are a few staff members who will continue to add and develop antihubris.com using the fantastic application "RapidWeaver" by RealMac software.

The old(er) site will always be accessible through the "Site Map" and "Staff Blog" links.
