Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

One of the most important basic and avoided questions is if a person considers themselves essentially an Individualist or a collectivist. It seems more enjoyable to argue over techniques or good and bad. But the question of Individualism vs. Collectivism as desired method to improve human nature pu...

Re: Plato was an atheist?

Hi, there, just wanted to know if Plato was an atheist. I tried searching on the net for the answer but did not find the answer so I came here. About plato, f*ck knows, since we only know what he let Socrates and the boys have their say in the dialogues. And having read most of them I would say tha...

Re: What ideal and work can *save the world*?

(I say 'save the world' because it is a common tun of phrase and I needed something definite for the title! But I mean also *what will help our societies to progress and be better*). Gábor Vona (founder of the Jobbik party of Hungary), from a forward to the book Handbook for Right-Wing Youth by Jul...

Re: Rebuilding Notre Dame vs. Helping the Poor

I couldnt answer to that poll with a yes or no. Its both a naive and an interesting question. First of all, if a rich guy want to spend a couple on millions on the Notre Dame, better for me than if he buys a couple of Rolls Royces. And some of the rich and famous, with Bill Gates in the vanguard mak...

Re: are women to blame for tyranny?

So what is a man who is not a real man? An unreal man? Crikey, never mind diversity. Everyone must fit their little assigned box. Blaming genders is simply ridiculous, at best. People are people. Even the unreal ones. Tyranny can be blamed upon insecurity - an administration's fear of losing contro...

Re: are women to blame for tyranny?

Have been away from this forum for a time, found this thead interesting A lot of Jordan Peterson talk, and I am somewhat in his Fan Club too. But I really think the tyranny issue with women is more basic, and independent of brains: Women, Academical, Bluewhitecollared or skid row women takes the mos...

Re: Popper on Marx on History

I also read the Open Society recently, would basically sum it up pretty much like Chris did. But what I see as interesting, or rather alarming, in the time that has gone since the mid 60’s is first and foremost the globalization of the world. Large multinational countries cannot any longer be regula...

Re: What is Emotion?

I did state the foundation. My 25c. What's wrong with what I wrote? Without foundation my posts are out of nowhere. But my foundation is your posts. Your foundation are also your posts which are really not foundation at all. When you write, "psychology is the best explanator currently available", t...

Re: Think positive

I'm having a rather Jordan Peterson view on this. The shit is out there and keeps coming. There are no positive opposite of "catastrophy", most positive things we have to create for ourselves(Well, nature in May in Scandinavia is definitely a plus). But we have to make the world a good place.

Psychoanalysis connection with politics

Both Slavoj Zizek, being a fan of Lacan and Jordan Peterson, being a fan of Jung both makes a big case of psychoanalysis as well as modern politics. And there seem to be some connection there. In the interview in PN with Anja Steinbauer Zizek even suggests re-reading of Hegel and the boys with psych...
