QuoteBob Enyart, a conservative radio talk show host in Denver who urged listeners to boycott Covid-19 vaccines and vowed never to get a shot, has lost his life after contracting the virus, one of his co-hosts announced earlier this week, in what is but the latest instance of a right-wing radio pundit succumbing to the coronavirus.On his show, entitled "Real Science Radio," Enyart falsely claimed the vaccines were developed using aborted fetal cells and wrote on the show's website blog in August advising "everyone to boycott Pfizer, Moderna and the Johnson & Johnson to further increase social tension and put pressure on the child killers."According to a Washington Post report, Enyart "used to gleefully read obituaries of AIDS sufferers while cranking 'Another One Bites the Dust' by Queen," and repeatedly called for women who received an abortion to be sentenced to death.At least four other right-wing radio hosts have died of Covid-19 since early August after each previously cast doubt on the safety of vaccines or fought against mask mandates and other public health initiatives.Dick Farrel, a Florida-based conservative radio host and anchor on Newsmax TV who had called vaccines "bogus bullsh*t" and characterized Dr. Anthony Fauci as a "lying freak," died on August 4 due to complications from Covid-19.In late August, Marc Bernier, who spoke out against Covid-19 vaccines and even called himself "Mr. Anti-Vax" on his radio show from Daytona Beach, died after battling the virus for weeks.Jimmy DeYoung Sr., a religious radio broadcaster from Tennessee who published an interview advancing a conspiracy theory that the Pfizer vaccine would make women sterile and asked if the virus and vaccines were forms of governmental control, died on August 18 after contracting Covid.Phil Valentine, a popular conservative talk radio host in Nashville who voiced vaccine skepticism and mocked Democrats' efforts to encourage people to get the jab, was killed by the virus in mid-August after reportedly telling his brother he regretted not being a "more vocal advocate" of getting inoculated.

Quote from: MeltingMan on September 19, 2021, 11:01:50it can also work 'the other way round', so you get to know someone 'in person' and after the third or fourth date you get the feeling that you may never see the person again or not for a very long time. This is due to the circumstances
QuoteWhat is romantic actually lies in the fact that the two halves of an idea are kept away from each other by something alien in between. When Adam was created, the idea of Adam required its completion in Eve. (The animals came to him and he gave them names -- the manifold is there -- the choir, if I may say so, is there -- the irony is there --.) Eva comes, and the romantic is over, there is rest.(...)

QuoteKierkegaard had a very conscious relationship with language. At first he is simply a romantic. For him, language is the instrument with which subjectivity can express itself in all its ambiguity, mood and personal character in such a way that only those of the same opinion understand what is meant.Over the years, however, Kierkegaard shows an increasing tendency towards the linguistic accuracy of expression, with which he tries to counter the romantic danger of subjective disappearance.In particular, for Kierkegaard, language is the real bearer of national peculiarity. Kierkegaard had a very close relationship with his Danish mother tongue and, like Grundtvig, also worked as a writer to cleanse the Danish language of all foreign, i.e. at that time German, influences.With all his attention to the meaning of language, Kierkegaard never fell into the delusion that human liveliness and inwardness did not go beyond their linguistic expression. He has always differentiated between the thing and its expression and has warned against overestimating and absolutizing the communication media.
