"Why can't we all just get along?"(TAZER!)
90%chimp,1% bee.Reptilian brain vs Civilization.
Faith based belief systems are just that-projections
Is anything innate that cannot be contradicted or exorcised?
KOHLBERIAN ethical dilemmas are rare
(is it right to steal a drug for one's dying wife?)
Do we burn the village to save the village?
BENTHAM is dead.It is no longer
"greatest happiness for the greatest number"
Now we have pressure groups,factions,third parties,splinter groups
Philosophy morphs into psychology to explain our rationalisms
Yet for a child survivor of abortion,there is no argument
For a survivor of torture or Communism or groupthink,ditto
Cliches kill.Politics divides.Generalisms confuse."What Light
through yonder window breaks?"Burglars or police?
Lord of the Flies revealed the flaw in Tribes.
1984 and Brave New World the errors of collective thought.
Will William Gibson explicate the fictional daze we live within?
or must we turn to poets and singers,one more time-SING!
