Are there any absolutes that we can agree upon?

And not the mathmatical physics kind....

Is there anything we can agree on?

I think almost everyone would agree that racism, fascism are not cool.

is this a collective we? or a fym we?

if it is a fym we, i'd say financeguy is off to a good start...

A really good roll in the sheets is the best thing life has to offer.

I could also say, sex is the great equalizer, of rich and poor.

Apparently, you missed the whole 'asexual' discussion.

i think there are no absolutes. none.

however, there are some guidelines (as opposed to rules ... i know people like rules, but we're all just making them up as we go) but a guideline, by definition, is not an absolute.

Absolutes are hard. We all come from different perspectives, we all have been burned by different things. Compromise on some things are healthy. I believe in negotiation in life. Not that everyone will agree on what to compromise on or whether there should ever be compromise. Absolutes no. I guess the best we can hope for is an uneasy peace and I'm not even sure we can reach that for any length of time.
