Yes. Socially, pertaining to society, and cohesive, pertaining to cohesion. Social cohesion.

That's not a definition.
That's two tautologies.


You have no idea what the term social cohesion means? None at all?

He has no idea what you mean by social cohesion. And your squirming to avoid giving a straight answer to this is incredibly telling.

Back to troll school with you.

I would be quite happy to hear his answer based on his own definition.

You're the OP its up to you to provide a coherent definition. In other words stop JAQing off. :roll:

I'm sure you would. It's too bad that you, the person who proffered the term in the first place, can't manage to define it. Sad!

Your failure to grasp the basics of rational discourse, or disingenuous pretending thereof, does not excuse you from abiding by them. Your trolling is not new, effective, nor funny.

I dunno, I think it's funny that they actually seem to think they're good at it.

So you have absolutely no idea in the world what the term social cohesion could possibly refer to. None whatsoever? How bizarre. I'm not going to define it because you know what it means already.

Someone said earlier that social cohesion led to the destruction of Germany in 1945. Presumably they had a definition of the term in mind when they said it. Let's go with that.

Vapid trolling. :coffee:

Nah, they don't talk English in Germany.

They talk German. Or Deutsch as they call it. You might find this interesting:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_language
German (Deutsch, pronounced [dɔʏtʃ] (About this soundlisten))[nb 4] is a West Germanic language that is mainly spoken in Central Europe. It is the most widely spoken and official or co-official language in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, South Tyrol in Italy, the German-speaking Community of Belgium, and Liechtenstein. It is one of the three official languages of Luxembourg and a co-official language in the Opole Voivodeship in Poland.
...
One of the major languages of the world, German is a native language to almost 100 million people worldwide and the most widely spoken native language in the European Union. German is the third most commonly spoken foreign language in the EU after English and French, making it the second biggest language in the EU in terms of overall speakers.
...
German is an inflected language, with four cases for nouns, pronouns, and adjectives (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative); three genders (masculine, feminine, neuter); and two numbers (singular, plural). It also has strong and weak verbs. It derives the majority of its vocabulary from the ancient Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family. Some of its vocabulary is derived from Latin and Greek, and fewer words are borrowed from French and Modern English.


Conversely "social cohesion" is an English language term that would not have been used in Germany in the 1930s and 1904s.

Often, people trying to play rope-a-dope supply the rope.

Rainbow Simon has simply gone one ingredient further.

Mad props.

I don't think we're supposed to socially cohere these days, it's all about distancing.

I'm trying to find the words to describe how pathetic this is. It's like Rudy Giuliani trying to give a press conference in a landscaper's parking lot between a dildo shop and a crematorium.

It means "stop being so bloody awkward and intentionally misunderstanding things", I think.

ETA: And just for the sake of clarity, I perhaps should have said that this was the message, by an example stemming from the ambiguity about the word "they", of my last post as well.

If you know that it is a term, then surely you know what it means.

You also know it is a term, and were asked first. So surely you could have just saved all this bother by answering the question the first time it was asked - which was addressed to you, by Thomas Eshuis, here:

Then it means you do too. And yet you're having so much trouble defining it. Sad!
