Decriminalize All Capitalist Acts Between Consenting Adults. Dr. Chris Freiman & Keith Knight

decrim

https://youtu.be/UiiFaw8nLLI This book argues that there’s nothing wrong with ignoring politics. To the contrary: you should disengage from politics to pursue more effective forms of altruism. Instead of watching presidential debates, attending city council meetings, and writing letters to your representative, you should spend your time on charitable activities that are more likely to change people’s lives for the better. - Christopher Freiman, Ph.D., Why It's OK to Ignore Politics, p. 3 Dr. Chris Freiman is a philosophy professor at William & Mary and author of Why It’s OK to Ignore...

Caution or Catastrophe: Public Health’s COVID Response

fauci

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, proponents of lockdowns, shelter-in-place orders, mask mandates and other coercive government interventions have characterized these measures as benevolently “erring on the side of caution.” Now, as the grim toll of those public health measures comes into ever-sharper focus, it’s increasingly clear those characterizations were terribly wrong. What’s less readily apparent, however, is how the very use of the “erring on the side of caution” framing was injurious in itself—by thwarting reasoned debate of public health policies, diverting attention from...

yardsign kindnessiseverything y9fu w7

Virtue signaling—the practice of highlighting what one takes to be one’s own moral superiority, often by loudly denouncing the character and comportment, including the speech, of other people—has become a dominant mode of rhetoric throughout social media and network television.

Historians of philosophy usually trace virtue theory to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, the first extant articulation of ideas such as that habits build character, and virtues...
