I am starting to explore my ideas more and more through writing. I intend to debate the ideas of free will and individual sovereignty. To try and reconcile abstract mythic spiritual truth, with observable scientific deterministic truth. In doing so I hope to highlight the reasons why enlightenment thinking is still prefferable to post modern critical theory, while offering suggestions as to the causes of the problems plaguing western society, the society produced by enlightenment thinking, and how I think language is the key to the pathology driving both sides. The thoughts produced by the enlightenment were enough to give us scientific, political, and industrial revolutions, and it would be shortsighted to abandon such ideals. It is certain that any idea capable of being used for good, can equally be used to justify evil, so in the marketplace of ideas, individual sovereignty, self governance, and absolute rather than relative morality, must remain the highest virtues.
I wrote one other post already before making this introduction. Here is the link.
