When Brett Stevens becomes president, he can pull a Caesar, tell the Republic to fuck itself, and have deathcore bands skinned and impaled paving the way for the next Augustus.

Spleen and Ideal is shifty leading me to believe Gerrard and Perry had their own concept albums in mind; concepts they saw through successfully but too much at odds with one another to even consider an all-encompassing vision they may have once shared. I appreciate Gerrard's contribution on a different level as Perry at times is bordering mainstream.

This could probably be said of all their albums.

- The Bhagavad Gita, by a certain hindu wise man, or several of them (albeit you will probably need a commentary for this one, since it's complex and may be uncomprehensible for you - on that, check the "ANUS book list" topic)

Eh, I would definitely stay away form the Gita, I mean sure it's a classic but so is The Bible, should we recommend Marcus that too?

I highly recommend the Old Testament for scholarly and philosophical research. That god had a 1000 pound ball sac not unwilling to crush his often disobedient and belligerent people....with that sac

Yes. This is all a pile of crap.

Let's compare leading 'literates' during the Middle Ages (and yes, unfortunately, we have a Wikipedia at our disposal):

It seems to me that the leading Arab rapes the leading White European.

After invading Southern France, Arabs took in possession the surviving texts of ancient Greece and Rome including Pythagoras, Aristotle and Ptolemy. By the 13th century, Europeans heroically took back what was theirs enabling the Christian priesthood to translate what was at the time Arabic texts (translated from Greek) into Latin and create the first European universities for the intellectual and religious elite. It wasn't until the Renaissance when these ancient texts became outdated by Copernicus (Poland), Kepler (Germany), Descartes (France) and Newton (England) among others who, building upon the ancient Greeks/Romans and the Catholic Church of the Middle Ages, made breakthroughs in physics, astronomy, mathematics, and so on creating much of modern science. 

What have we learned?

1) You have the historical knowledge and common sense of a door-knob
2) Your butt-soreness over racial superiority - an issue many if not all of us here don't care about - has led you on a Wikipedia driven search to prove white folks aint all that, typical of  equality and tolerance rhetoric. Images of slave and resentment come to mind.
3) Christianity in the hands of the right people, such as theologians like Newton, has the potential to be restored to a scientific and spiritual religion - a combination of materialist and transcendent values based on reality: Pythagorean Christianity.

It seems to me that the leading Arab rapes the leading White European.

I can understand the respect for the ability to manipulate large audiences these people had, but doesn't this sort of top-down government create weak people, and foster not only their misguided beliefs, but their destructive (i.e. environmentally ignorant, mind-numbingly moral and vapidly compassionate whining) behavior as well?

It depends on the virtue of those in control. Government is a tool. In the right hands, it may be used to help guide people to their full potential.
