Congressional Communications, 15 May 2019

In recent days state legislatures in the South and Midwest of the United States have passed statutes that highly restrict the ability of women to seek abortions. These laws are little more then religions attacks on personal freedoms and must be met head on by those who support a women's right to control her own … Continue reading Congressional Communications, 15 May 2019

On a Call for Social Revolution

What is the necessary and proper roll of a nations body politic? Moreover, do the people have an obligation to rise up against a governmental power that no longer represents it? To the latter, Yes. A simple answer, but one that must be more deliberately answered nonetheless. To begin then let us start in the … Continue reading On a Call for Social Revolution

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

The Role of non-Individual Bodies in Society

What is the role of a non-individual body in society? Rather, what should be the end of a non-individual body in society? In working on my next major sub-topic it occurred me that I must codify and answer the above question. So here is that answer: The role of any non-individual, that is any body … Continue reading The Role of non-Individual Bodies in Society

Of the Passing of a Public Figure

Of course everyone, or at least most people, will know that Sen John McCain passed today. It is safe to say that I did not always agree with his policies or political views, but he was a decent man. During the 2008 election he gained a great deal of respect from me when he shot … Continue reading Of the Passing of a Public Figure

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

Is a Law Moral?

Is a law moral? Rather, does a law have a moral value? It has become vexing to me in my work in “Denial of Moral Responsibly”, and in conversations of late, that there is a notion that a right is given by law. This is, of course, completely incorrect. If a law gave rights then … Continue reading Is a Law Moral?

On a Grounding of Social Roles and Responsibilities

Todays post was intended to be on the topic of the denial of moral responsibility. Yet, a theme as stricken me from recent readings and review of by previous two posts. That is the role and responsibilities in a society. To this I will now give thought and slow diligence. To begin, in "The Moral … Continue reading On a Grounding of Social Roles and Responsibilities

Tacit Consent

In my last post, "The Moral Vote", I discussed briefly voting along moral lines. This post is, in a sense, a continuation of the same idea, albeit from a different point of view. The topic of tacit consent is not a new one. Among others, Locke claims that one who continues to reside in a … Continue reading Tacit Consent

The Moral Vote

Is it justifiable to vote on strictly moral grounds? Rather, is one justified in voting for someone in spite of immoral acts and beliefs because of that persons nonmoral policies? The labor to craft the right question alone has taken slow deliberance. As such it is clear that to answer it will be no small … Continue reading The Moral Vote
