An Essay on Moral Philosophy in Western Civilization, written in 2018


From the Introduction

The study of the behavior of humans, their ethics, and how they structure their society and their government is a field of study that goes back to the very roots of our recorded history. Originally it was called philosophy, then moral philosophy, then ethics, and now the subject is split into so many unrelated branches that the original purpose may well have been totally lost. Today I would say that there are five basic original sources for the study of human behavior. Although there are many sub classes and other beliefs, they can all be safely ignored as they don’t represent significant portions of the world’s present population.

1) Classical Greek
2) Indian
3) Asian: Chinese and Japanese
4) Islamic
5) Atheist (the only view that rejects God)

This paper will be focusing on the Classical Greek views and how the Classical Greek view transitioned into Contemporary Philosophy and the Progressive Atheist belief structure starting just before the change from the 19th century to the 20th century. This was, of course, when Marxism took hold of (pseudo) intellectual thought. Those two, Contemporary and Progressive Atheist, belief systems currently make up most of what we call Western Civilization. The first tree Chapters are very important and all else is derived from what is presented there. If you can not at minimum agree that my proposition is possible then there would be little advantage to read the rest of the book. Western Civilization is in a period that will either end it or transform it into something unknown; these these kinds transition rarely go without major conflicts. According to reliably sources I know we will be though this period by mid century. Below is an motif image I created representing the universe we live in, its explained in detail in chapter two of the book.

Biblical Series XI: Sodom and Gomorrah

Often interpreted as an injunction against homosexuality (particularly by those simultaneously claiming identity as Christians and opposed to that orientation), the stories of the angels who visit Abraham, bless him, and then rain destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah are more truly a warning against mistreatment of the stranger and impulsive, dysregulated, sybaritic conduct. Abraham opens his heart and hearth to the stranger. The denizens of Lot’s soon-to-be lost cities threaten them with violent rape. God exacts a terrible retribution. The warning is clear.

This lecture describes the world as a place of action and value (as opposed to a place of objective things), and lays out the manner in which religious thinking is descriptive of that world. It provides a good introduction to Dr. Peterson’s other lectures.

Biblical Series V: Cain and Abel: The Hostile Brothers


Published on Jun 27, 2017

Bible Series V: Cain and Abel: The Hostile Brothers The account of Cain and Abel is remarkable for its unique combination of brevity and depth. In a few short sentences, it outlines two diametrically opposed modes of being — both responses to the emergence of self-consciousness and the knowledge of good and evil detailed in story of Adam and Eve. Cain’s mode of being — resentful, arrogant and murderous — arises because his sacrifices are rejected by God. This means that his attempts to give up something valuable in the present to ensure prosperity in the future are insufficient. He fails, in consequence, to thrive, as he believes he should, and becomes bitter, resentful and murderous. Abel’s mode of being is characterized, by contrast, by proper sacrifice — by the establishment of balance between present action and future benefit. This ensures his personal and social success, accruing over time. Unfortunately, it also makes him the target of Cain’s malevolence. This great short story is relevant personally, on the level of the family, and politically, all with equal force, all simultaneously.

More than ever, today’s Western society remains profoundly divided. Whether its identitarian splinters, growing political animosities, or challenges to individual freedoms, perhaps the greatest source of the crisis in our contemporary democracies comes from within society. To discuss those topics we invited Jordan Peterson to Room for Discussion. Professor Peterson is a clinical psychologist who has gained notoriety due to his influential but also controversial analyses from current social and political problems.

We discussed, among other topics, the secrets of a long marriage, the problems with dating apps, how to handle a belligerent toddler, and the motivation of my radical feminist critics. Femsplainers (http://femsplainers.com/) is “the gossipy, smart, witty conversation you’d have if all of your girlfriends (and some of your guy friends too!) were experts on the hot topics of the moment. High spirited and high minded, we don’t argue or whine but seek to get to the heart of the matter, over cocktails (or wine).” We taped in front of a live audience at AEI, the American Enterprise Institute (http://www.aei.org/ Ms. Hoff Sommers is the author of Who Stole Feminism?
