ETHICS and CONSERVATISM

ETHICAL ISSUES:  CONSERVATISM

Conservatism is not a political issue, nor is what follows intended to be a political statement.  It’s more basic than that.  The foundation for conservatism is history and original intent—a return to the basics, ethics being the most basic.  Anyone can do it.

 

Any society needs a system of rules within which its members can operate to the general benefit. These rules are founded in its values and articulated in its privileges.  The rules of all successful societies including our own begin in ethics and are adapted to the society’s needs and wishes.

Our own rules trace their origin to a paramount need for freedom.  Our laws are founded in a Declaration of Independence from our mother country and empowered by a Constitution written by individuals with a strong ethical and moral base “in order to form a more perfect union.”

ETHICAL ISSUES: PC and RACISM

August 15, 2017

ETHICS: RACISM AS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

Racist!  An epithet guaranteed to raise hackles on both sides of the accusation.  Its hallowed definition has come to mean ‘whites’ demeaning ‘blacks’ or other groups, a definition worthy of political correctness.

It’s common knowledge that 90-percant of ‘blacks’ voted for Barack Obama in 2012.  That bell-curve is skewed ‘way beyond any reasonable statistical degree of probability known to mankind.  Is it possible that blacks voted for Obama simply because he is black?  Of course it is, and that was clearly the case.  This is a classic example of racism, but is it called such?  Of course not.  That would be politically incorrect.

The infamous OJ Simpson trial is another case in point.  Simpson was clearly guilty of murder—he admitted it—but was found innocent.  The verdict was racially motivated, another case of racism.

TRUTH: Let’s Get Metaphysical…

TRUE and TRUTH

Fundamentals (like Truth) can’t be perfectly defined. They must remain at least in part idea, awareness, perception, theory—because they are principles: the source, not product, of definition.

True and Truth are often confused. “I think Bob is stupid” may be true, but the Truth is that Bob may be in fact very smart.  True is an adjective, Truth is a noun.  Truth is, in fact, an absolute—a first principle—indisputable.  Like the Universe—nature itself—everything requires truth to even be (exist) in the first place.  (This means that truth must have preceded even the Universe.) True is a mere modifier with an opposite—false.  Don’t confuse it with truth.  Truth has no opposite, only an absence of itself.

But the concept (of Truth) has to be articulated to some degree so that we can deal with it—after all, that’s

GLOBAL WARMING: One cannot KNOW anything that isn’t TRUTH

TRUTH: a verified or indisputable fact; verity.  The principle of actuality or actual existence; conformity with fact or reality.    Mathematical certainty (i.e., 1+1=2).  Or another way of putting it: Truth is what remains after everything impossible has been eliminated.

A few years ago it was fashionable to claim that 98% of all climate scientists agreed that anthropogenic global warming (that resulting from man’s burning of carbon fuels) was endangering the very future of our planet.  The fact of 98% of anyone ever agreeing on anything being suspect on its face seemed to be irrelevant, but anyone disagreeing with that announcement was labeled a denier and summarily banished from ‘science’ as a charlatan.

The fact (truth) is that the claim is false.  The number may have been invented by counting all members of all organizations not denying the claim.  The fact is

YOUR ESSENCE: YOUR PERSONAL NOTHING-THAT-MATTERS

What follows is more from Chapter Nine of To Tell The Truth...

 

Earlier we said that some degree of maturity is necessary to make everything work.  In fact, what’s really necessary is some degree of other-than-physical development, an ongoing, never-ending, maturation process.    You have to continue growing even after you realize that you are expanding along with the universe itself.

John J. Goetz, in his research and writing in urban studies (1989, personal communication), has enumerated certain characteristics of mature individuals who continue to grow as human beings:

They do not always put themselves first;  

They relate well to others, and treat others as individuals;

They seek the ultimate well-being of others in addition to their own;

They realize their limited abilities and see value in a diversity of talents and backgrounds;

They are able to discern, to see past words

BELIEVE WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW

… and BECOME WHO YOU REALLY ARE

 What follows is from Chapter Nine of To Tell The Truth…, available from this website as well as Amazon.  See also the BLOG of April 17, entitled Nothing Matters.

 

While the mind is how the brain relates each individual beyond himself, its use necessarily is limited to terms that its owner can deal with.  But while our minds require our brains, the ubiquitous potency of the universe does not.  In other words, there remains a dimension that is the essence of our existence, a vital incorporeal part of life itself that pervades our being.  It exists within us as well as in all of space without us, connecting each of us to not only every other one of us, but every corner of the universe, perhaps beyond.  This essence is original, eternal and immortal, meaning
