Philosophical Stampede Trail

Philosophical Stampede Trail is a great place to be because it is the easiest answer to every question. One need not ponder much business ethics or relationship boundaries because capitalism and dating are far beneath you. It is the reason Christianity is a harder religion than Buddhism. Eternal existence as a Heavenly society is aContinue reading “Philosophical Stampede Trail”

PTSD from Social Situations

  My last article detailed some of the horrors of being autistic but how people usually respond is less than ideal. They believe that the best recourse is punitive. However, punishment and revenge are not only inner-demons I’d rather stay dormant but have no therapeutic effect on me. My greatest issues after are not aContinue reading “PTSD from Social Situations”

There Are No Poets in This War

For all of the human suffering and depraved human folly involved in waging the Vietnam war, it is reputed to have had the best soudtrack of any tregady in history. Most of Classic Rock was a direct or indirect result of the anti-war movement. The current crisis, however, lacks much of a soundtrack or evenContinue reading “There Are No Poets in This War”

Mental Health & Liberalism

In Francis Fukuyama’s 1989 essay “The End of History”, he expounded that history ended in 1806 with the defeat of the Holy Roman Empire by Napoleon at the Battle of Jena. His reasoning was that this was the moment Enlightenment ideas in politics had crossed the point of no return and would remain the foundationContinue reading “Mental Health & Liberalism”

Trauma and Autism

For therapy to be effective it is usually required that the cuases of one’s trauma be sympathetic. If they refect upon one’s reputation unsympathetically then it is sometimes almost impossible to get effective treatment. Many of the earliest articles on this blog concerned themselves with the overreaction to minor social mistakes. A serious reason forContinue reading “Trauma and Autism”

The System To Handle Bullying

When I expound on my history of being bullied, my tactics regarding how I handled it are almost universally objected to. That of peer-to-peer diplomacy as opposed to beating them up or involving vice principals or the police. The idea that I forgave them is also either shocking to or opposed by them. Yet, ironically,Continue reading “The System To Handle Bullying”

A Story of Obviousness

My surname is Hamilton and I live on the political left so I feel compelled to address the widespread criticism over Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “In The Heights” movie. It was criticized for being colorist and not casting darker-skinned hispanics in the lead roles. It was so bad that Lin-Manuel Miranda issued an apology. It’s quite ironicContinue reading “A Story of Obviousness”

Jeffery Toobin’s Return and the State of Moral Panic

On this blog, I usually try to steer clear of clickbait scandals like Jeffery Toobin’s. The scandal he is a part of seems overblown and the reaction disproportionate. Many editorials called for his arrest and charge with public indecency. Given the popularity of online pornography, it would both seem that self-service in front of aContinue reading “Jeffery Toobin’s Return and the State of Moral Panic”

The Normative Ethics of Ghosting

One of the concerning phenomenon of the Zoomer generation is the ubiquity with which they ghost. If this were just a means of ending romantic or sexual relationships, that would be one thing. Yet, platonic and professional relationships are equally or almost equally the subject of it. Ghosting is, when not avoiding a truly dangerousContinue reading “The Normative Ethics of Ghosting”

Death Before an Inch: The Urge for Homeostasis

Recently, I published an article regarding entropy as the current bane of society and how our institutions are unable to resist the inevitable deterioration that comes with the lack of ability to coordinate and plan on the part of the people within the institutions. A related question is why when things get so bad doContinue reading “Death Before an Inch: The Urge for Homeostasis”
