Intllectual Hedonism

The story of the end of liberal democracy is one of the decline of shame and honor. Liberal democracy requires the graceful and chivalrous accepting of defeat. We live in an age where people increasingly end relationships through ghosting and over ever smaller causes. The filibuster and abandonment have existed for a long time butContinue reading “Intllectual Hedonism”

Philosophical Stampede Trail: The Moral Relationship of the Apollonian and Dyonisian

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: The Moral Relationship of the Apollonian and Dyonisian”

Dogwhistles and Karens: A Kinder, Gentler, Sadism

When talking about prejudice, for the most part, one must have explicit and gory stories or evidence of maltreatment for people to take it seriously. Luckily, I have that. Yet, it doesn’t cover the overwhelming majority of the inhumanity I have endured. Most of the overt bullying was “circus monkey” bullying for which my bulliesContinue reading “Dogwhistles and Karens: A Kinder, Gentler, Sadism”

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.

Hugging and Affection in the Era of COVID

Prior to COVID, I hugged girls and shook hands with or fist bumped boys. It was my invariable style. Every person is my sibling in the human family and it is my duty to express my love for them. To my surprise, when COVID hit there was not only a resignation to less tactile interactionsContinue reading “Hugging and Affection in the Era of COVID”

The Death of Humanity: Lessons From the Mice of Universe 25

In the 1960’s, a psychologist in Chicago did an experiment in population density. It was to determine how populations react to increasing density with no material stresses and under ideal living conditions. Famously, within two years, the mice in the study abandoned their young, fought each other regularly, and stopped procreating. Eventually, all of theContinue reading “The Death of Humanity: Lessons From the Mice of Universe 25”

The Isolation Crisis

One of the great ironies of the 2010’s decade was that the media got much dirtier while the reality got much cleaner. The media doesn’t reflect the reality in the least. While True Crime is very popular, truthfully crime is going down. While porn is more hardcore than ever, sex and strip clubs are losingContinue reading “The Isolation Crisis”
