Bad Horse

Beneath the microscope, you contain galaxies.

Index librorum prohibitorum

The heaviness of the bad horse drags its charioteer toward the earth and weighs him down if he has failed to train it well, and this causes the most extreme toil and struggle that a soul will face.
--Plato, Phaedrus 247b

Join me, and together we shall rule the world. Mostly me, though.

Do YOU want to join the Equestrian League of Evil?

There are two ways to join:

1. Demonstrate your heinous nature through crimes and malicious acts disruptive to the fabric of society. Please, no tying people to railroad tracks or kidnapping sidekicks. We get a dozen of those every week. Legitimate evil activities include tumblring Dolan comics or writing alicorn OC fiction. Document all evil activity and submit to the Equestrian League of Evil headquarters in Washington, D.C.

2. Click the "Follow" button on this page.

Don't hesitate to comment on my stories! If you see something you like, or don't like, or think could be better, say so. If you don't comment because you come in thru EqD or Spacebattles & haven't bothered to make a fimfiction account--stop that! It's pretty damn selfish. Make an account. It takes thirty seconds.

We read every submission
With predatory grins
We've got the supplication that you just sent in
It needs evaluation before it's in the bin
Let's see if plots maintain their course
Good grammar would be nice of course

It's Bad

This index to not-bad blogs will always be on my user page. Each list is mostly in chronological or reverse-chronological order.
I've added a few good blog posts by other people.
I put a '*' in front of the ones I think are most-important.

Well, I can't say that relevant passage in Engles' book directly says what it is either (perhaps I don't understand the full power of dialectics, or, like Lenin, Engels thought that definitions are overrated). But it looks like exactly an attempt to patch inability of working with numerical quantities and preempt criticism that they're just making up new words (they're not making stuff up, stuff is coming into being "objectively and independent of human perception" by "motion of matter" and "transformation of quantity into quality")

Hello again!

That Wikipedia article doesn't actually say what the "law of the passage of quantitative changes into qualitative changes" is.


Platonist values are defined cardinally, not ordinally. That is, you can only say that one type of thing is better or worse than another type of thing. You can't say that one human life is worth more than one fish's life, and also say the lives of one billion fish are worth more than the life of one human.

Marxists totally have that one covered: see law of the passage of quantitative changes into qualitative changes in materialistic dialectics (not to be confused with dialectical materialism --- totally different thing! :rainbowlaugh:)

Mayhaps you have longer answer somewhere?
This stuff is awesome!

I'm not a fan of Marxism. I am a fan of Super Trampoline, who is a Marxist. :ajsmug:
