Materialist Determinism and Free Will
govols comments on Oct 31, 2019:
I'm pretty familiar with the science that the determinists are coming up with about brain development, chemical responses to environmental stimuli, how neurotransmitter production is turned on and then the chemicals caused to or prevented from being reuptaken(?), a lot of that stuff. They make a hell of a case that we're biological machines running environmentally induced programming routines. But, the question is a good one; how do we reconcile the science with free will and personal responsibility? One thing we need to investigate further is "free won't." I've read articles that haven't really been so much falsified as dismissed, suggesting the decisions *not* to act on an impulse often are made with no measurable physiological precursor. The suggestion is that the impulse is determined, but that a "will" exists that can resist "temptation." I've read of--sorry, I don't have the words to avoid the base language--water-heads born with brain mass down in the 20-50% of normal range developing into almost indistinguishable from normal cognitive function. Sometimes the literature carries anomalies that tend to be left little investigated because any validation would turn the main body of work on its head. Better to ignore, or flat ostracize, any reports that don't fit the knowledge base than to disrupt aspects that would force whole understandings to be reevaluated. In the end, though, the fact is we experience the world through free will, and are held by society responsible, so we might as well work within that framework until it no longer best describes the reality in which we exist. We might very well be biological automatons but we still have a future to build. It won't be done just following our meat sacks around where ever their chemistries takes them. I think the Greeks were onto something. We're animals, just like the rest of them, unless we practice being more. Skin suits or not, your tomorrow will certainly suck ass more than it needs to if you don't *choose* to work on it and yourself today. We all experience how much easier it is not to, and how much we regret when we fail to. Maybe that's chemistry, but that ain't the experience; the experience is miserable remorse. That's what it feels like to deny your will.

govols comments on Oct 29, 2019:
I think a lot of people currently being called conservative Trump supporters--and even possibly many who self-identify as such--are actually just anti-globalist, -evangelical leftist, -splintering identitarian, fuck the establishment Alt-Left reactionaries who play pro-Trump as a role required of them to continue the tossing of grenades. Most of the people now called far-right conservatives are actually pretty damed classically liberal, but also remain traditionalist nationalists in an era of globalism, corporatism, and the strange hyperreal effort they're making through media and information manipulation to disassociate the Peoples of the (western, especially) world from their cultural heritages and to replace the very notion of international cultural variety with globalist multi-cult. Peterson is glommed upon by some who might not be expected to simply because he seems to understand, and speaks on the idea, that most Peoples exist in cultures that were built from the heroic tales of where they came from, and need such narratives to help make meaning of Being and Becoming given the awareness we share of the horror that reality so frequently manifests.

Thoughts?..............Black Pigeon Speaks. []
govols comments on Oct 25, 2019:
I have a love/hate relationship with Enlightenment ideas. I buy into radical individualism, to a point, but I think most of the thinkers of the age assumed a shared moral framework instilled into all levels of a similarly socialized People. Peterson has a way of knowing this an some level but rejecting it on another. He seems to feel like moral meaning can be discovered and understood intellectually--and that might be true for many--but most of us are either literally too intellectually deficient to manage the task or too freaking busy or distracted to bother. The common stories a culture raises its children on are the means that humans developed to build a common morality right into the structure of society. Black Pigeon is right about the global experiment: if you rearrange enough of the individuals from the world's various cultures, you scramble the foundations of the cultures themselves. We simply don't all share the same morality dramas. If I move to France I might eventually become a citizen of France, but nothing will ever make me a Frenchman. There are cultures in this world, even in America, that who simply DO NOT raise children to see the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as self-evident Truths--and those children will never be my countrymen. They don't share my culture. Identity Politics is human nature, but we used to identify with our cultural heritage rather than the identities that activists use to undermine that heritage.

I can't help but wonder if the simulation isn't the result of "begging the question." What are the chances that observations are being "fitted" to the prevailing consensus...that the current "settled science" is PRE-supposed and programed into the explanations being constructed by the "scientific community?" In the current era, "science" seems to be always looking for the explanation that "best fits" prevailing theory, rather than using current data to poke into the flaws the data might expose.

govols comments on Oct 24, 2019:
Not a Canadian. My understanding is that nobody runs for Prime Minister, but instead, the Leader of whichever Party wins the most seats in Parliament gets the job. The Parties have elections to pick their leaders from time to time, and if they win the most seats: PM to them. Many parliamentary systems require the winning party's leader to win support from minority parties, usually by granting them some cabinet seats, in order to actually form a coalition majority government in which the minority MPs pledge to vote with the "ruling" party. From what I understand, Canada has no such rule. The parliamentary systems tend to ensure that ultra-minority "third" parties have some voice in governing because their willingness to "caucus" with a plurality (but not majority) winning Party allows a winning minority to decide majority votes on legislation. They get a voice in the shaping of the bills, and if the "ruling party" wants their votes the bills must be shaped in ways that hold the coalition together. You should look into parliamentary systems on whole, as such articles often cast outlines that are, at least in part, based on a basic summary and then a compare and contrast of the similarities and differences among the major powers. Now, I'm sure some Canadian can and will come along to give you a correct answer.

govols comments on Oct 21, 2019:
The topic as charted is so vague and undefined. The BoR and Libertarian isn't "right," and "communism" is traditionalist if you model it back enough. Anarchy is the "state of nature," but anthropology suggests that the earliest states of nature were clannish communitarian social groups. Merchantilism was a feudal affair, not totalitarian, but oligarchical--and democratic, if granting that, like in Athens, only some were of the polis. I like what you're trying to do, but I don't thing left and right is a correct frame, and I think a first step to the project is an effort to establish terms--a clearly defined vocabulary. Individualism and personal liberty is opposed by nationalism, socialism, statism, but is compatible with communitarianism to a degree. Money and wealth is ancient, and drives both capitalism and totalitarian oligarchical mercantilism, but is also the wages of labor and small business. Family, clan, community, tribe, society, nation, culture, State. State is "modern," and most of the rest of that is traditionalist. I'll step away for a bit.....

Free speech: is it actually a good thing? - Vox
govols comments on Oct 1, 2019:
As near as I can tell, the subject of the interview and author of the paper under discussion is frustrated that free speech interferes with the ability of the expert class to control the public narrative in the manner that would serve as persuasive upon the "lay-jurist" masses who make up the under-body of the polis. He correctly points out that "Capitalism" monetizes public speech through media, and turns the vast majority into little more than click-bait propaganda. The public good would be better served if the noise was reduced, and the "epistemic" signal were amplified through gate-keeping rules that would reduce the information available to the masses, in order that expert conclusions were drawn by said unwashed in a manner that would lead them to perceive those conclusions of experts as their own. His conclusion and lamentation that our capitalistic system isn't structured to facilitate the censorious moderation of the public square is backhandedly framed as a case against capitalism itself. His criticism is more against the notion that criticism of the expert conclusion is allowed than it is against free speech itself. His criticism is more against capitalism than against the profit seeking nature of the elitist establishment media within a click-bait environment, and the natural tendency for that to result in propaganda mills pretending to be reliable sources of information. This guy isn't concerned in the least about free speech, the free exchange of ideas, or even the societal search for true knowledge; this guy is whining that the expert class no longer monopolizes the form and flow of information, and that the free market of ideas has move the conversation out among the polis and has reduced the influence of the expert aristocracy. He isn't wrong to worry, but it's really so unseemly to do it right in front of those for whom he obviously harbors contempt.

govols comments on Sep 30, 2019:
If there is a God of creation, a creator, I'll not curse him under any circumstance. The vast majority of my experience has been Good. The nature of creation is Good. The way all things interact is stunning to witness. If all things are the creation God, the will of God, and if all things, even if by his will, eventually lead to all things suffering and all things dead--I praise and thank him for the brief glimpse at the glory of his work that I am granted. The absolute wonder that I have experienced through my being in creation has been worth whatever price I will pay. I may eventually beg for relief, but even then I will regret if relief requires I sacrifice the experiences of being and becoming. Maybe I'll pay it, maybe I'll suffer on. I don't know. The concepts of good and evil seem not so much subjective, but a single function. The more I know about what I ought to do, the more shame I feel for my failure to do so. And we all fail. All the time. We know it in our bones. I think it was Socrates whom Plato told of having a voice, a daemon or some shit, that told him what he ought to do. The difference between a legend, worshiped by a student, and all of the rest of us? Socrates fucking listened to his conscience. Aristotle, student of Plato, wrote fucking prolifically about how we know good and evil, and but must train ourselves relentlessly in order to develop the ability to recognize, not just in our bones, but up through our Reason, and to choose The Good...rather than to enslave our Reason, and our Souls, to a practice of sophistry on behalf of rationalizing the rejection of Good. The OT tells it in a few verses: Don't partake in the knowledge of good and evil, for if you do you will die...of shame. The Tree and its Fruit were both Good, but Man, not mature enough yet to know of and yet to refrain from evil--to Do The Good--will die of shame in the presence of God. We exist in a sort of "Goldy-locks" zone within Creation--not too hot, not too cold. Damned near all of us know good from evil. Our comfort level within the acceptable tolerance limits of the temperate zone is a function of how well we practice toward The Good. The more closely we come to hearing the Word--the voice we all have breath within us to exclaim--the better we aim toward Being without shame. I have a long way to go, but I'm glad to be about it.

govols comments on Sep 26, 2019:
What year was that said? I would guess it was in an era when radical progressive factions, radical communist factions, radical socialists factions, were all so out of favor they were mislabeling themselves as "liberals." The liberal tradition is to question established norms and the conservative tradition is to preserve the social institutions that allow for such questions to be expressed in the public forum. Remember that. REMEMBER THAT! Actual liberals don't set fire to the public forum, and actual conservatives don't put of barricades around the perimeter. Conservatives murdered neither Socrates nor Christ, nor was it liberals who nearly destroyed Notre-Dame. Tyrants managed the one, and radicals the other. When it comes to culture, failing to remodel from time to time is as contrary to conservatism as burning the house down is to liberalism.

govols comments on Sep 26, 2019:
It's a puzzle to me too. I'm not exactly an atheist, but I've dabbled in it almost all of my life. Most of the time I don't join public prayers to which I'm party, but I have generally made a practice of quietly meditating on the items brought up by the performer. A few things I've pondered over the years: The simple prayer of praise, delivered humbly to an authority on high, and how the person or group who would sue to prevent such a public performance would do so through an appeal to a powerful secular authority. The appeal to "give us this day...(the grace required) to forgive our trespassers," and how many of us struggle with that feat, and fail. The game day prayer to grant safe conduct, glory worthy grit and determination on behalf of our team and the community who support us, humility toward and respect for the opposing team and their fans, and basically a wish for this game and our play to reflect the way we would hope to live our lives and the way we would hope our communities would provide a fair and sporting environment in which to do so. The public performance of God praise has never been an intrusion for me, even at my least believing moments, because it is the way of my culture and a ritual worth sharing if one approaches from a perspective of awe at the blessings that culture itself provides.
Charles Murray argues for a level of affirmative action as a tool for social utility in a diverse ...
govols comments on Sep 26, 2019:
I can make an argument in favor of a sort of affirmative action, but most of the forms we've managed to fabricate are fairly indefensible. Like, instead of busing kids to other neighborhoods to integrate schools, identify schools at which students are under-performing and focus action toward those schools and neighborhood. I have no idea what that looks like, exactly, but in part it would mean things like shuffling some teachers between schools in a district, lesson plan exchanges, maybe setting up something like intra-district exchange teacher/student programs... Imagine a college professor as visiting lecturer to a few high school classrooms, or the "teacher of the year" being assigned to spend the following year as itinerant mentor to a district's first year teachers. Affirmative action to bring up the institutions, and individuals within them, toward better delivery of service. Think about the "vibrancy" efforts at the better universities, and ask if those efforts in some way contributed to the decline of historically black colleges. If you cherry picked the top 10% of blacks off to Harvard and Yale, what are you doing to the classroom discussions at Morehouse? How many black entrepreneurs are stultifying in large corporations because they were recruited away from opening businesses in the neighborhoods they grew up in. Affirmative action should have been aimed toward communities, but instead is aimed toward depleting communities of their best and brightest.

To point out in a very small way the complexity of the "logic" in our "coding," a little "study" from WWII: Late in the war, one of the Scandinavian countries was under siege, blockade, some such crap, for about 3 months. During that time a number of women were at varying stages of pregnancy, and experiencing nourishment deficiencies. Among children in gestation during that period, those in the third trimester during the poorly fed times wound up experiencing more obesity and obesity related diseases as adults than those born prior to the deprivation or who were in first or second trimester of development. Their "scarcity program" was turned on in the womb. We will screw with stuff we don't understand. We just do.

I've thus far never voted for either a republican or a democrat, nor exclusively for Libertarian Party candidates. The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my ally, nor deserving of my support.

govols comments on Sep 12, 2019:
Violence *is* human nature, at least in part. What's worse is that if you want to subdue it you generally have to beat it out of us. On the big question at the end, of preference--violent revolution and order imposed through threat, or actual subtle violence? Well, both suck, but each in their turn seems to be the norm.

govols comments on Sep 9, 2019:
