In moving this thread/post from the trading forum to the NTR forum, it would no longer allow responses. So I started a new thread here for your bear.
what other statues should we remove/destroy?

the ancient roman rulers were absolutely Horrible people (ethically). should we go thru all the museums worldwide, and remove/destroy all the statues and busts of all the roman rulers?
many catholic saints supported some horrible policies. should we go around the world and remove/destroy all the statues of all the catholic saints?
let me give an example... supposedly augustine (at one point) argued that slavery should be allowed. if you outlaw slavery, then the family cannot feed all their kids (you may have 15 kids). so people would be tempted to commit infanticide, since you cannot feed all those kids. he thought that selling a couple kids (or forcing them into servitude to earn money), would help you to be able to feed the rest of the kids. so slavery is Not as bad as infanticide. therefore we should allow slavery.
(today a smarter person would say... thank god for birth control).
since augustine argues that slavery should be tolerated, we should go around and destroy all the statues of him.
and we will ignore the good/important things he writes about.
Maybe the next step, after we have wiped out all those people, will be to go after the numerous sexists..........those that discriminated based on the gender and sexual preference.
Since women did not get the right to vote until 100 years ago, and only in recent years were treated as equals in the work place, we should be able to generate a very long list of men that qualify as needing to be historically censored.
With regards to gays, we don't even have to go back in history. We can identify some right now that need to be censored because they have voted for anti gay policies.
We need to get one side to generate what they think is their perfect world, with politicians and others that have all the politically correct views. Everybody else needs to be censored and vilified.
Another one that they have already been pushing hard on for 15 years is people that don't believe in the fake climate crisis. They made up a term to trash them "climate deniers" so that people think of them like they do the Holocaust deniers and shun/reject anything that they say. Obama's favorite term was "flat earthers" but the objective was the same............don't allow anybody with opinions that are different than yours to have a place at the table.
Sexism is prejudice or discrimination based on a person's sex or gender. Sexism can affect anyone, but it primarily affects women and girls. It has been linked to stereotypes and gender roles, and may include the belief that one sex or gender is intrinsically superior to another. Extreme sexism may foster sexual harassment, rape, and other forms of sexual violence.Gender discrimination may encompass sexism, and is discrimination toward people based on their gender identity or their gender or sex differences. Gender discrimination is especially defined in terms of workplace inequality. It may arise from social or cultural customs and norms
Climate change denial, or global warming denial is denial, dismissal, or unwarranted doubt that contradicts the scientific consensus on climate change, including the extent to which it is caused by humans, its effects on nature and human society, or the potential of adaptation to global warming by human actions. Many who deny, dismiss, or hold unwarranted doubt about the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming self-label as "climate change skeptics", which several scientists have noted is an inaccurate description.Climate change denial can also be implicit, when individuals or social groups accept the science but fail to come to terms with it or to translate their acceptance into action. Several social science studies have analyzed these positions as forms of denialism,pseudoscience, or propaganda
