Why do we usually think it's the other person's personality when we don't "hit it off" with them? ...
brentan comments on Feb 17, 2019:
I was always intrigued by the difference between the secular view that if enough people didn't like a person, it meant that person was an asshole, but the spiritual view was that if people didn't like a person, it was because that person was on the right road and the others weren't. But how to come to any definite conclusion in a society of people who are all different levels of idiosyncracies, emotional baggage etc? If I were to use this forum as a guide to getting on with people, I think getting on is a matter of similar opinion,s and an extra level of getting on is to forge further agreements that certain people are anathema. It might be fair to say that in this regard, we still operate on the level of primitive tribes.

brentan comments on Feb 16, 2019:
I think society has tired of liberal attitudes and relative values and global everything and wants something tangible to hold onto again. I fear the pendulum will swing back forcefully in the opposite direction before it levels out again.

I don't think it has much, if anything at all, to do with moral judgement. I think it's about finance. It's a while since I read anything about it but I think it was about the rights of transgender soldiers to get the army to pay for treatments.

What is fear?
brentan comments on Feb 16, 2019:
Danger is real, you bet. But if you don't respond to fear, the result can be very real too. That seems to be the Viking Ragnar faced with a monster. I've just been reading Beowulf who had to face three monsters in his lifetime.

brentan comments on Feb 15, 2019:
It's a question of balance between individuality and social consciousness. Individuality's good and bad sides were shown with the old pioneers and cowboy gangs. In the end, social consciousness won out. In today's world, I would call that social consciousness social democracy.

Marriage, a contract for the mutual use of the sexual organs. Emanuel Kant.
brentan comments on Feb 14, 2019:
Marriage, a contract to allow a vehicle for the magical feelings of love that will hold the relationship together when the cold winds of real life start battering down love's defenses. I think it was a great idea, especially for the children.

brentan comments on Feb 13, 2019:
My guess is that cultural evolution is not always a good thing. Quite likely, genetic evolution has also had its backward and forward steps on the way to who we are today. I think we are placing all cultural value on utility and dismissing all the less tangible cultural values such as spirituality, metaphor, intuition and whatever else relates us to connection with the world around us. We call a lot of this connection to the intangible world art. Whatever we call this side of our lives, we better fight for it because as consumers living in a capitalist world, we are making ourselves nothing more than utilities too,
