Postmodernismís moral low ground : Comments

By Stephen Hicks, published 7/2/2019

That is to say that postmodernism depends on the very system it attacks for both material resources and moral status.

This is fine and well if we are discussing competing opinions. All human progress has been accompanied or reliant on competing ideas!

But no man can own his own facts or ignore verified and proven truth.

Professional cynicism is the last resort of scoundrels, scumbags and recalcitrant politicians, who are owned by narrow vested interest?

How else can we understand or explain some of their recent decisions!? Or Lack thereof? Be it on climate policy, energy policy, real tax reform and complete inaction on massively overdue, decentralisation. And sacrificed by the visionless majors at the altar of power for its own sake!?

And in the (new idea free) bubble where these natural incompetents dwell?

Two minute Philosophy of Ethics.

1. Ethics or moral philosophy is a branch of philosophy that involves systematising, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. The field of ethics concerns matters of value.

Ethics seeks to resolve questions of human morality by defining concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice and crime. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethics

eg. Did you cheat on your Tax, step on an Ant, vote Liberal, or become a Holy Man to access Little Children?

You cant of course get any lower than the very low "morality" and "culture" promoted by the one dimensional cardboard comic book "philosophy" of Ayn Rand, and the Heartland Institute too.

She was of course one of the three principal scribblers that turned the market, and the worship of it into the very powerful god called THE MARKET that by its very nature demands that all living-breathing-feeling beings, both human and non-human must inevitably be sacrificed.

Check out an essay on The Baffler website by Eugene McCarraher titled:
The World Is A Business: the mad alchemy that transformed the market into a god Issue # 38

The image that heads the essay is priceless?

'And we need our leading institutions - especially those like universities that are dedicated to truth-seeking - to make those principles explicit and foundational and instill them in the next generation.'

you mean the ones who can't even acknowledge that a baby born with a penis is a boy

you mean the ones who deny science in acknowledging an unborn child as human

you mean the ones that deny history and Israel's right to exist

which universities are dedicated to truth seeking. Me thinks you live in complete fantasy. Next statement will be that the abc is comitted to unbias journalism. pssss.

And of course you cant get much lower on the scale of human morality and all the way down the line depravity than Donald Trump.

He is a pathological liar and a life long professional grifter. He makes a completely mockery of the moral codes of all traditional religions, and in the case of Christianity the Ten Commandments and The Sermon of the Mount. He also makes a completely mockery of Jordan Peterson's 12 rules for life.

Even worse he is enthusiastically supported by so called conservative Christians including Franklin Graham who is about to tour Australia.

Another "conservative" American Christian recently published a book titled The Faith of Donald Trump A Spiritual Biography - LOL ya gotta b kidding!
The book features a foreword by Eric Metaxas see:
http://americanloons.blogspot.com/2018/04/1995-eric-metaxas.html

By the way Eric Metaxas is featured in a long very chilling interview on John Anderson's website.
John Anderson in turn offers a glowing endorsement of Sam McClelland's promotion of "conservative" viewpoints.

hatred certainly blinds you heh Daffy. Yeah Trump is bad but then again look at the baby killing alternative. You know the ones who rape, wear klu klax clan uniforms, lie about Court appointments and then virtue signal through hashtags. And since when did you think morality matters unless it is of course conservatives not living up to the standards you don't believe in.
