Re: Is Knowing the Truth Enough?

Most of the people have no respect for what is wise and true. They don't think critically, and neither do they listen to those who do. Plato was the first to introduce the ideal of the philosopher king. The philosophers will likely reject the idea due to the notion that no one should have absolute ...

Re: idealism v. pragmatism

The problem with idealism and pragmatism is that some people are not idealists and some people are not pragmatic.

Re: What if ... 1000000 Lb. currency limit?

If you google M3 Money Supply you will see that there are many things which aren't money of the sort you can put into a bank account that are used in such a way that they behave as money and their supply has to be taken into account when working out how much money to print or destroy in order to ma...

Re: What is your opinion on Wealth disparities?

My opinion on wealth disparity: No one should be a pauper who regularly does his work diligently. That's the real issue, in my opinion. I couldn't care less if Jeff Bezos have a mansion or two. The people who work for him should have reasonable accommodations.

Re: Debate about How to Solve the Major Problems of Society

Of course you cannot judge any individual's motives, because you cannot know them. I'm talking about what every politician, welfare worker, do-gooder, and social justice warrior quite loudly and annoyingly claims as their compassionate, caring, sympathetic, empathetic virtue to excuse their meddlin...

A House Oppressed

A house oppressed cannot stand. Moses knew that; and hence, tried to emancipate his own people. Yet, Moses missed one very oppressive person, himself. Even Jesus, found the urge to oppress his own people to be too enticing, threatening without mercy. If you wish to be king of the world, emancipate y...

Re: Debate about How to Solve the Major Problems of Society

I have realized that my thinking method may in fact be inferior to debate. So I have devised a control experiment. In this topic/thread I would like to see a debate about how to solve the root causes of the major problems of society. Then we can judge whether debate or my proposed thinking method w...

Neither Slave Nor Master

The slave is not good with his/her tendency to serve. Nor is the master good with his/her tendency to rule. The good are those who will not align with them nor forgive them who use others. And the good are they who will compensate others for their service. They are the ones who want freedom and equa...

Let Us Yield To Ideas Rather Than Ideals

Many philosophers insist that their own ideal or set of ideals is the best. Over that, many people do the same. I suggest turning that zeal for the ideal into devotion for the notion. Let our actions yield to a belief in the knowledge rather than mores. Disclaimer: Doing so may make you unpopular, a...

Re: What causes muslims to be violent

What causes muslims to be violent? Jews, witches, homosexuals, women, thieves, people who trade stocks, and people who speak out against Islam. It's the same as Nazis, except the Nazis misunderstood their own texts. By the way, if any real Muslems are reading this. I think Donald Trump is a Kabalist...

Re: Massive Mass Reparations for African-Americans
