I already brought a link to his statement where Moshe Reuven Asman criticizes "some foreign editions of my name or me doing unreliable and sometimes downright false and openly provocative statements...

Why do you think that it's the same fund-raiser?
The one that I quoted is organized by Kiev Jewish Community lead by Rabbi Moshe Reuven Asman not Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich. Rabbi Moshe Reuven Asman...

Not entirely true. The buildings were taken on Marth 22 when Yanukovich and many high-ranked officials already fled the city.
Yes, there were a demand for Yanukovich to resign, but actually it was...

No, it's not perfectly safe and without problems for everybody considering the situation. And there are some measure of anti-Semitism in Ukraine, so Jews may reasonably feel more uneasy. But it's far...

Nope. I would say that this was disproved by Moshe Reuven Asman himself on the official site of Kiev Jewish community: ...

Russia Today much? There were no conflicts in Ukraine on ethnic or national ground so far. Some anarchy here and there, yes, but no "things happen" or "ethnic cleansing".
And the South-west was...

One of the driving reasons for the protests was a sense of insecurity due to the high corruption of law-enforcement and courts. The agreement of February 21 cut only three month from Yanukovich's...

It was after a several dozens of people had been killed in Kiev and several hundreds were injured, beaten and/or jailed. It was like "This guy on whose orders more than 60 protesters were shot just...

If anybody planned it they must have been controlling Yanukovich all this time, since the steady escalation of the protests was mostly a reaction to his actions. There were a plenty of times when...

I'm not sure if "the coup" is the right word for three month of escalating mass protests.

I calmed down a bit :) So here a few facts about Russian- and Ukrainian-speaking Ukraine:
- Kiev is predominately Russian-speaking, however kievans massively support Maidan. In general they are...

Thanks a lot for your helpful hints, but why shall we have a referendum if nobody ever tried to initiate the legal procedure for it? Because someone in Russia, Europe or USA believes that Eastern...

I suppose now I understand how Serenegoose felt during all these feminism discussions. Russian Federation commits unprovoked military intervention backed by a false and tenuous pretense, preliminary...

Bullshit. What kind of logic is "If you speak Russian you want to join Russia"? The answer is that it's the logic used by Russia to justify it's aggression. But most of the Russian-speaking Ukrainian...

Tarot cards?! There were tarot cards?
Really liked the game. I had doubts about the graphic style, but in the actual game it works much better than in the trailers.
And while the overall tone is...
It's not like causality couldn't go both ways. I.e. cultural stereotyping takes natural differences and transforms them into something far more blatant, strict and enforced. Statements "Women are...
Uh... I didn't say that. Freedom and equality are also abstractions. My point was that it's relatively easier to have a more critical discourse about concepts that are more grounded in reality....
The more an abstraction is detached from reality the more it hampers critical thinking. When we do something for freedom, equality, happiness etc. it's possible to observe results and see if they are...
I've lost you. I thought we were talking about personal level primarily and now we have political power and hierarchies.
They serve as a better counterpoint than science when we discuss moral,...
Yes. That's what I meant. Thanks.
Utilitarianism, libertarianism, stoicism, non-religious pantheism and zen and so on. I do not see why they should fall under the banner of science since they are...
Reasoning, yes. (Actually I wholeheartedly agree with most of what you've said on the subject in the thread. Thank you for the posts.)
The discussion made me realize that one of the things that...
