Calling all agnostic, rationalist, objectivist, libertarians in the USA!—and I mean the inclusive union of those traits.
How can you have a representative government without a melting pot or some such standard? With enough diversity, there is no political stance that will represent any majority. Even in the artificially restrictive left-right sandbox, there are two incompatible camps that are nearly everyone—i.e. all the useful idiots.
How can you have standards without enforcement of them? How can you enforce standards without force? It seems to me free American civilization no longer has a survival instinct, a will to live. Let the police handle it, whatever bureaucrats handle it, as we have been trained. The video of a recent girlie beatdown at McDonald’s demonstrates the new good citizenship. The elite behavioral psychologists must be smugly fascinated. To those feminist and feminized, who expect freedom without unpleasantness: you can’t grow flowers without getting hands dirty.
I predict that there will be either: 1) a top-down tyranny to hold us together, or 2) segregation by geography and/or mortality.
Are you an agnostic, rationalist, objectivist, libertarian? If you cringe at the mores of the mystics of spirit and of muscle, if you love the enlightenment, how it grounded science and philosophy in natural law and delivered us from the bondage of medieval superstition, if you believe morality is naturally defined as reciprocity and has boundaries, if you believe that fellowship of citizenship with the unsophisticated, with the useful idiots, is a principal threat to civilized freedom, let’s gather together into a social network and see what sort of community with ourselves and our higher values we can become.
I am not selling anything. I am self-actualized and wish to be civicly actualized. You know what that means if I particularly want a civilized fellowship with you.
