brentan comments on Dec 15, 2019:
I often felt this dynamic as an employee. Insecure managers were a curse. The confident ones could be great to be around. They were comfortable in their own skin and had no fear of anyone else feeling comfortable in theirs.
You can't argue with that.

Why We Need to Lose Religion to Save America
brentan comments on Dec 11, 2019:
"To slow the decay, many right-wing political and religious leaders and their followers are demanding a “return” to the foundation of American virtue, which they believe to be the Bible and Christian doctrine." I can't help thinking the foundation of American virtue is a myth. Leaving that aside, American society is in a bad way. I see it as a crisis of meaning; meaning that used to keep some kind of lid on our worst excesses. The only alternative to religious values seems to be humanitarian but they seem to be just the province of educated upper middle class people.

brentan comments on Dec 8, 2019:
I think the Anglican Church has managed to separate the spirit of Christ from the body of doctrine. Perhaps this means it is a form of Gnosticism, I'm not sure. I would go to see what kind of community was there, just like I would go on the Camino to Compostela to see what kind of people I might meet there..

brentan comments on Dec 7, 2019:
Yes, this growth thing is a big problem. You borrow money and invest it as capital and then the return on your investment must at least cover the interest paid on the loan through economic growth. All going well, you do it again. The dog is continually chasing its tail while the market is flooded with consumer goods and services to keep the process going. Right now, I can only see social democracy as a way to help the situation but that's only in terms of how fairly the pie created by this sick economic process is shared out.
Fictional character but still a good message.

brentan comments on Dec 7, 2019:
I got a degree in business a good few years ago. It was interesting but not really nor me. I would have preferred sometime in the Humanities, like English literature. But here's the thing - third level education taught me how to think and how to research. These skills can go a long way in any business so long as you don't let morality get in the way.

My daughter has been talking college psychology and criminology courses.
brentan comments on Dec 6, 2019:
Do we want to create little versions of ourselves? It's quite likely that we do. It would add another layer to the idea of reproducing ourselves. Perhaps the parent would need to be quite dominant to make this happen in the face of the child's natural desire for self-determination and also all the environmental factors involved in shaping a mind. In the other thread, I was talking about children taking after their parents but this situation might be showing the difference between taking after and being a clone of the parent.
I just previously posted a comment i made about my daughter and her mother.
brentan comments on Dec 6, 2019:
I think the heredity factor can be (like a lot of things) looked on as on a spectrum. Where my own children are concerned, one takes after his mother and the other takes after me. The term 'takes after' was never meant to be a scientic determination but you know what I mean.
I always get so enamored of the theory of surplus value.

John Vervaeke on the necessary merger of science and religion: [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Dec 5, 2019:
There is an opinion out there that we have been on the road to nihilism ever since the Greeks started philosophising. That opinion stretches to say we are now suffering the worst of the negativity involved in rationality and materialism. That’s where our new batch of intellectuals on the Internet come in. My feeling about the different approaches used by these guys is that while Peterson tracks the human imagination through the centuries, Vervaeke breaks down out thought processes into the nuts and bolts of thinking. I’ve watched 46 lectures in the series so far and my conclusion is that proper thinking is how to awaken from the meaning crisis and John covers the huge amount of ground where wrong paths can be taken. I really like his talks with religious thinkers on the Internet – Jonathan Pageau, Mary Kochan and Sevilla King, even if Sevilla is really focused on Pirsig’s take on Eastern philosophy. So will proper thinking solve the problem and give back meaning in our lives? Or will we be forced to consider a return to spiritual thinking and the community of religion? Time will tell but I feel very strongly that our left-hemisphere ways of thinking have led us into a blind alley and we desperately need a way out.
