Thoughts from Wittgenstein

Man has to awaken to wonder - and so perhaps do peoples. Science is a way of sending him to sleep again.
Ludwig Wittgenstein


 Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Not every religion has to have St. Augustine's attitude to sex. Why even in our culture marriages are celebrated in a church, everyone present knows what is going to happen that night, but that doesn't prevent it being a religious ceremony.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Nothing is so difficult as not deceiving oneself.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Nowadays it is the fashion to emphasize the horrors of the last war. I didn't find it so horrible. There are just as horrible things happening all round us today, if only we had eyes to see them.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

One of the most misleading representational techniques in our language is the use of the word 'I.'
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

One often makes a remark and only later sees how true it is.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Our greatest stupidities may be very wise.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Philosophy is like trying to open a safe with a combination lock: each little adjustment of the dials seems to achieve nothing, only when everything is in place does the door open.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Philosophy is not a theory but an activity.
Ludwig Wittgenstein 

Propositions show what they say: tautologies and contradictions show that they say nothing.
Ludwig Wittgenstein

Death threats at town-halls

The right is becoming more aggressive. Town halls just aren't what they used to be.

It's August, and lawmakers are back in their home states talking to constituents. Liberals and conservatives alike will show up to town-hall meetings and other events to question their elected officials--sometimes loudly--about health care and the rest of Washington's business, as lawmakers make the case for their own agenda. When passions run high, debate can be spirited. We'll be watching.

Liberals, and especially unions, have received a slew of death threats this August over health care reform. Rep. Brad Miller's (D-NC) office said they'd received one last week. The conservative group FreedomWorks released a recording of one yesterday. Today, at a town-hall meeting hosted by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), a man held up a small, handwritten sign reading "Death to Obama," The Hill's J. Taylor Rushing reports.

Daniel June : Philosophical Essays


Here are some excellent pieces by Daniel June,  regarding religion and philosophical critique of existential themes.

The Truth of the Lies of Internment Camps

For the 8 years of the W Bush administration,  left wing fringe hysteria told us Bush,  Cheney,  and Rove had big plans to put dissenters into internment camps.  Now the right is saying the same of Obama.  Maybe nothing important or big or scary ever really occurs anymore,  and,  as Baudrillard said,  we now have reached the point of the  "news of  non-events".

Bush laid the groundwork for the coming anarchy

It was under 2 terms of W Bush that the groundwork was laid for what the right-wing and libertarian dissenters fear in Obama .  How ironic,  that what was dreaded under the Patriot Act,  new forces of homeland security, and FEMA,  now have an infrastructure in place which is causing an upwelling of Obama-paranoia.

NARTH , Gay Activists, Anti-Gays, and the Ex-Gay Penguins

With so much emphasis since the July discovery of  the "gay"  penguin couple which broke up when one of them "went straight",  I wonder:
1.  Why gay activists ever wanted to use a pair of penguins to make a point which ought to be less about biology,  and more about human freedom.
2.  Why gay activists thought they were "winning"  when the penguins were displaying "gay"  behavior,  and why proponents of ex-gay therapy now feel that they themselves are "back on top".  What if this is an illustration,  not of "born that way"  followed by "not born that way after all"  -  but of the Freudian model of bisexuality and fluidity of sex expression,  which Paglia rightly proposed in the '90s?
