I will post a daily/bi-daily question on this thread. Serious replies only please!

Question #1
"This is what history consists of. It's the sum total of all the things they aren't telling us." — Don DeLillo, Libra.

What is history, who are "they," and what aren't they telling us?

As the old saying goes 'history is determined by the winners' so they and the winners. But in modern context history is not that but everything that ever happened to everything and everyone, in the past.

Although it kind of makes sense in some contexts that history might be determined by the winners, the saying is 'history is written by' or better 'favours' the winners.

apples are red or green. while oranges are orange. If you're colorblind, oranges are circular while apples are heart shaped.

Next question.

Did you know the colour orange is named after the fruit?

Also an orange has 8 times as much citric acid in it's juice as an apple.

Hey, aren't those the essay prompts for Stanford or UChicago? I'm pretty sure I've seen those before.

Edit: https://collegeadmissions.uchicago.edu/apply/essays/
Haha, that was a brilliant idea. Too bad it didn't work. Also, good luck; I'm in the same boat as you man.

But here's a question off the top of my head.

According to Kant's moral philosophy, we, as members of society, have a duty to tell the truth at all times, under any circumstances, regardless of consequences, whether they be godd or bad. Do you agree with this? Why or why not?

Sometimes, it's better to tell a small lie, than to deliver a painful truth.

the doctor tells you your grandma will die in 2 weeks. She doesnt know yet, but if you tell her, she will most probably feel sad/disappointed/worried. However, if you dont tell her, she can spend the last of her days peacefully and happily.

What do you choose? The small lie or the painful truth?

This sort of question requires you to be looking from your grandmother's perspective. So the answer would still be to tell a small lie. Would your rather die in your sleep knowing this was your last nap or sleep thinking about tomorrow ?

Telling a small lie is not ok. For example telling someone they don't look terrible when they do is a small lie. Not good. A large lie depending on the consequences can be good. For example (if it take a very out reached example) telling the Prime Minister a lie to avoid a pointless war the unlawful death of thousands.

Small Lie = Bad
Big Lie (With large moral gain) = Good
Lie with no moral gain = Bad

@Skunk, What if a Small Lie has large moral gain?

Example:

"Hitler, its okay, the Jews really do like your mustache."
