Gay or Straight: It's All Bi(nary) to Me

Guided choice in the Land of Panglonymous

Imagine:  You are my subject.  I am your King.

As a member of a gay nature/affinity group in the Land of Panglonymous, which would you have me dictate in the state schools first:

- That the historical contributions of ALL exceptional Panglonymans be conveyed regardless of their intrinsic natures or affinities.

Or

-That the fundamental nature of the world, our Kingdom and its peoples be expressed as accurately as possible - with non-Panglonyman interpretations considered equally.

You must choose one or the other in this benevolent dictatorship (I reduce things to the binary before presenting my subjects with a choice.)

Also:  It is probable that the alternative not chosen will not be realized in your lifetime.

So choose wisely, countrymen.  And Pan bless.

Watched all but the last part of third one. It's an interesting idea that the determining factor in how the world is divided between the haves and have nots is geography. A better way to look at the progress, or not, of history is how the productive power of labor is increased for a greater number of people in a given poplulation. A discovery of an idea that increases technology or culture to better the living standards for more people, this is the more important factor in understanding history. And there has always been this battle between the system where a few rule over the many by usually holding back developement, or controlling it in a way that it is limited and benefits only a select few, and the system of progress for the many as highlighted with the Renaissance and Am. Revolution for one.

A better story than most these days. (Exploring the roots of inequality? Wazzat?) If as a species we're cruisin' for a terrible bruisin', will we then correct to a course more like that in the clip you offered earlier: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGXMAqdRtfE T'would be a hell of a reversal, eh? Cling to hope all ye who remain here. :-)

Negative. It would be a population reduction green program.

It is interesting. I thought the 3rd one was most interesting. Going to watch the last 25 minutes I didn't have time to watch earlier.

Not sure a complete 'reset' would be such a horrible thing. Excluding 'us' altogether. But Sagan noshed with loads of brilliant folks. His exposure to exceptional humans made him a human exceptionalist. A .001%-er of another kind. Rarefied.

Nice one. If I could dump my short stupid (dead) dad for Max von Sydow I would do it (sorry Pops.) The Virgin Spring. Pelle the Conqueror. The SOB is earth.

If history is specious, shouldn't one petition to reform it before clamoring for equal inclusion within it?
