If there were a "War of the Worlds," which side (if any) would you fight for?

Good question. What worlds?

Christian vs Islam?

Republican vs Democrat?

Divine right of kings vs Capitalism vs Socialism?

No idea which worlds you are discussing here.

Europeans came to the continent of "America" and there was a war of the worlds. What about that one? Or the cultural war when France invaded England in 1066 and then when England acted against Ireland in the 1600s? Need more examples? It has happened. Do we want it to happen again? What have we learned?

We are learning that the Europeans themselves (when given the choice) don't want a United States of Europe ! Non ! Nee !

Well, I'll go for reasonable versus hidebound any old day. Barring that, Guiness versus lite beer, for sure!

Yes, I work for the dark side of the beer! Smile

I'd have to choose the side of Truth, Justice, and The American Way. That always wins. Smile
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I would (and do) fight for the freedoms of a constitutional republic, against fascistic efforts to eradicate freedom and liberty "in the name of freedom and liberty."

Depth Illusion vs Tilt.
Pass vs Side Steal.
Bicycle vs Tally-Ho.

We have enough wars, I wish no more.

Free speech versus censorship
Freedom of the press versus censorship
Freedom of expression versus censorship

Are you detecting a pattern here?

Off topic slightly. As a European, I always find it interesting when I hear Americans talk about freedom and liberty. Looking at the States across the pond it has always struck me that the US is the land of the free as long as you follow the rules.

I'm not having a dig at the US, so please don't send the boys round to fit me with concrete slippers, it's just an interesting thought.

I mean compare what you can and can't do in the US then compare it to places like France, Belgium, Holland and most other European countries.

Would like to read a point of view from the US on how they percieve Europe.

Cheers and take care,

Ros

Roslyn,

I can see where you're coming from. I would say more, but I would be getting very political; something the Café discourages.

I'll watch this thread, if the moderators don't remove this post, I'll be glad to address these questions Ros.
