—“I’m often compared to Peterson–Canadian psychologist, Harvard prof, Pinker, takes evolution seriously–but our styles and philosophies couldn’t be more different. We’ll explore them in a dialogue at some point soon.”— Steven Pinker

If one’s style and philosophy matter then it is not truth we espouse, but deception. If we can end the century of 1/2 truths with devastating externalities that would be better than to continue the course that is breeding civil war and the filling of power vacuums by other means.

I’ll repeat this in case it’s lost **The West developed faster than the rest in both ancient and modern worlds, because we speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, regardless of its impact on the dominance (status) hierarchy.** That is the Secret of the West.

The west survived the Abrahamic Dark Age by restoring that central property of ancient western indo european law: The Truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, regardless of its impact on the dominance (status) hierarchy. Status defense isn’t a virtue, IT’S A CRIME.

When Judaism, Christianity, and Islam produced the Dark Age by the replacement of the Trial of Achilles the Agrarian Aristocrat with the trial of the Pastoralist Underclass Slave, they did so by false promises. The most obvious is Islam’s demand for respect without being earned.

Unlike Islam, Christianity’s solution was to extend kinship love to non kind, and the Contient Germanized Anatolian Christianity slowly over more than a thousand years. Judaism’s solution was poly-ethical law and separation. But all three do the same: false status for false words.

One cannot have the fruits of western civlization’s continuously evolutionary markets in all aspects of life (associative, cooperative, reproductive, productive, commons, political, and military, without the CAUSE of those markets: the payment of the tax of status by all for the truth regardless of its impact on the dominance (status) hierarchy.

One cannot have the fruits of western civlization’s continuously evolutionary markets in all aspects of life (associative, cooperative, reproductive, productive, commons, political, and military), without the CAUSE of those markets: ….

… the payment of the tax of status by all for the truth regardless of its impact on the dominance (status) hierarchy.

FAILURE TO TOLERATE LOSS OF YOUR STATUS (SELF OR OTHERWISE) IN EXCHANGE FOR TRUTH EQUATES TO FAILING TO PAY THE ONLY IMPORTANT TAX WE PAY.

Only bad mothers think their children have a right to their illusions – they do so as a means of reducing motherly costs of high investment parenting: Subjecting children to a continuous stream of challenges they overcome by the development of agency using will over intuition.
