On Truth in Speech

What we say matters. It has weight, and that weight grows exponentially as social influence grows. Due to this, it is all the more important that what is spoken is uttered with the greatest care. If what one says is a lie, or just generally bullshits, then what has been said is of little use … Continue reading On Truth in Speech

Joy for the First Snow

The first snow A simple thing to you or me The first a nuisance perhaps That makes the drive a little longer But for a child... Joy!

The Distraction of the Great Now

As anyone who reads my philosophical posts can tell I try not to address, too overtly anyway, any current event. I stated early on that I believe that it is far more important to discuss wider topics that may, by happenstance, be related to current events. To that end, it has been difficult in recent … Continue reading The Distraction of the Great Now
