Perhaps the optimum solution to a problem might come from a prolonged debate among people with no fixed bias or opinion, and no desire to lead the way, but that's not how the world works.
You seem to be suggesting that fixed bias and opinions may be harmful to intellectual honesty, Is this correct? If so maybe we need to teach this as a fact and find other facts as well that are holding back social evolution but then again who am I to question how the world works?
I would think that science and logic may be able to find a better method or approach to our current condition if we at least acknowledge the problems and look for solutions.
I carry the flag for GREED
(but not stinginess).
I encourage everyone else to do so also.
Liberal means: deviant, errant, inconsistent
whatever it is that someone is liberal in reference TO
"Conservative" and "liberal" are both RELATIVE
having meaning only in reference to the criterion,
the subject matter, in reference to which thay are
"conservative" or "liberal".
The essence of liberalism is deviation
a partial rejection of something
, inconsistent with its original meaning.
For instance, if a boy is sent by his mother to the store with a
shopping list of 10 items and he decides not
to buy 3 of them,
he is being LIBERAL
, as to that list, because he DEVIATED
by acting inconsistently
with his mother's original meaning.
If he applies some of the money to the purchase of candy of his choice,
instead of his mother's choice of food, he is being liberal,
the original intendment of the shopping list.
When I spell fonetically, I am being LIBERAL
as to paradigmatic spelling.
The innermost essence of liberalism is INCONSISTENCY
with some designated criterion.
The Founders of this Republic were liberal to the extent
that thay DEVIATED from
and rejected the Divine Right of English Kings.
Conservative means keeping rigidly unbending in the enforcement of a rule,
or law, or agreement or some paradigm; accordingly, conservatives conserve that rule
or agreement or criterion (e.g., a common style of dress, or style of art, or interpretation of a contract).
Liberal means deviating from some rule, or law,
or agreement or some paradigm, and not taking it too seriously.
A man is LIBERAL
to the extent that he is deviant
, errant, or inconsistent
with some rule.
if men are playing poker n one rakes in the pot
alleging that he has a flush
, when he has 4 clubs and a spade,
and when challenged on this behavior, he declares
the liberal motto: " hay, that 's CLOSE ENUF;
don 't be
too technical; don 't split hairs; just don t be a ball buster, OK ?
I had a fight with my cousin, yesterday I got a flat tire,
I belong to a minority group and my left foot stinks, so gimme a break n deal the cards."
Hence, he tacitly advocates the position that logic shoud be SUBORDINATED
and that thay shoud take a LIBERAL VU
of the rules of poker because his sob story OUTRANKS
the technical rules requiring 5 cards of 1 suit for a flush. (Of course, he will be killed, when his fraud is discovered.)
Liberal = UNFAITHFUL
to a concept or to an agreement.
"Conservative" means ORTHODOX
"Conservative" means non
"Liberal" means deviant
Without having deviated from something no one can be liberal
because the essence of liberalism is turning away from something.
For instance, if u attend a formal banquet in a black tuxedo
with red sneakers
, u deviate from the paradigm of formal dress,
thereby taking a liberal vu thereof. If u attend it in your underwear,
then u take a MORE LIBERAL
interpretation of that paradigm.
If u attend it naked, then u apply a radical interpretation
( "from the root" ) of that paradigm.
Whether liberalism is good or bad
depends upon WHAT
the liberal is veering away from.
Like when Boris Yeltsin veered away from communism, that was a GOOD
When Deputy Fuhrer Rudolf Hess flew to Scotland in 1941, he was a liberal Nazi
because he was deviating from Hitler’s war policy.
Liberalism includes ANY
kind of deviation,
in any direction of 360 degrees of arc + up n down.
There is no
logical semantic constriction
that it can only exist in the direction of collectivist-authoritarianism a/k/a socialism.
Liberalism can be in the opposite direction or in any
so long as it is deviant
was a conservative BECAUSE
his philosophy did NOT deviate
from the pro-freedom philosophy of the Founders of this Republic as set forth in the Constitution.
was a conservative BECAUSE
his philosophy was rigidly faithful
to the US Constitution (which is the criterion).
