Jordan Peterson Interprets Dostoevsky’s ‘Notes From Underground’ And His Take Away Is ‘UtopianISM’ is Bad When I Would Argue Dostoevsky’s More Subtle And Truly Genius Message Is ‘Utopia Literally Means No Place For a Reason’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZyNJ3cKfEg THE ISLAND... IS US. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9a7-2XLPqc&t=287s This is in my opinion an incredible misreading. Dostoevsky is not criticizing 'Utopianism' but rather Rationality itself. In fact a gutteral human cry rebutting those who would seek to have all live and die under the rubric "facts don't care about your feelings." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIiyuHwontk

Will Belief in God Survive the Religious Right?

I believe in God (technically it doesn't count as faith because we have met several times, but anyway that's another post.) My work in fiction largely focuses on technology's collisions with spirituality, aiming to find a path for spirituality to survive the over-technology-saturated life we have and the scientism and reductionism that has our culture … Continue reading Will Belief in God Survive the Religious Right?

In states where they are now illegal (which I believe is unconstitutional as it violates the separation of church and state imposing religious views on others liberties without justification) many cannot travel to … Continue reading How to Support People in States Where Abortion Is Under Threat – My Thoughts / Reblog from Wired

Some Philosophers Would Argue The World Is Already Perfect

In the face of rising nihilist violence, the tone and pitch of our private song is key. My own perfect sanity demands I maintain irrational exuberant joy and motions of immortal jouissance at the fringes of consensus reality facing off with a smile of hope daring the archons to bend. What is the will of … Continue reading Some Philosophers Would Argue The World Is Already Perfect
