—“You stick all issues into a narrow narrative of,, destroying western civilization” and, in my opinion, this makes you overlook any other motivations of movements such as marxism and pomo”—Vlad Popescu
How long have you been following me? What’s the difference between (a) Judaism > Christianity > Islam and (b) Fundamentalism > Marxism > Feminism > Postmodernism?
The only difference is the use of the abrahamic method of deceit in the ancient world using sophism and the supernatural, and the abrahamic method of deceit in the modern world, using sophism and pseudoscience.
Otherwise it’s the same technique: False promise, baiting into hazard.
Whether you promise the impossible and unwarrantable after death or after revolution is immaterial. They are impossible and unwarrantable.
I mean, that’s why i’m so hostile to christanity’s use of the abrahamic method – it teaches people not only to be vulnerable to lies, but to apply the technique of lying to their own speech.
—“Just as I said, you appoint every movement that you dislike(or so it seems) the goal of deceiving. Remember Descartes when he said he often ridiculed other countries’ social norms, but then he thought that his social norms may be seen as ridicule from the outside? Point is, you cannot claim to understand marxism and poststructuralism if you do not dive deep into them, leaving all the prejudices aside. And that s what i love about so called,, western culture “, the tradition of doubting the soundness of your own beliefs. And I agree that Marxism-Leninism(not marxism în general) is mistaking by pretending that a voluntary, somewhat forced revolution will bring progress towards a new stage of the economy, surpassing capitalism even though the material conditions of our age cannot allow for that”—Vlad Popescu
I don’t like them because they’re deceptions – it’s not that I label them as deceptions because I don’t like them.
You must be new. I don’t opine on whether statements are reciprocal(truthful) or not. statements are truthful (reciprocal) regardless of what opinion I hold.
Do you know when you’re lying? How much agency do you have? Your children? The women you know? How much agency do they really have? How much are they just imitation machines doing what they have learned to imitate?
The fact that the abrahamic method of deceit is as advanced a method of deception as the Aristotelian method of testimony, is simply a technical fact.
The fact that the monotheistic religions’ attacks on market religion and norms (paganism), and the monopoly pseudoscientific attacks on market philosophy and laws, use the same technique of attempting to reverse voluntary markets with involuntary monopoly authority using false promise of life after death or false promise of economic, status, and power rewards after revolution, is a trivial distinction that varies only a subtle alteration of the lie.
Western civ developed math, reason, science, technology, engineering, medicine, and dragged mankind out of ignorance, hard labor, poverty, suffering, and disease in just a few centuries in the bronze, ancient, and modern worlds.
And it’s rather obviously due to the degree of correspondence of our metaphysics (realism, naturalism, operationalism, reciprocity) and our group strategy (sovereignty), and the social order of markets in everything, including jury, tripartism, trifunctionalism, and meritocracy.
So because people vote with their feet, the evidence is pretty clear that they want the result of the western method even if they don’ want to bear the cost of persisting it.
