To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

IDEAS / Bill Meacham : Speaking of Consciousness

Image from TZA's photostream / Flickr. Speaking of consciousness The cardinal sin of philosophy, committed all too often, is to use terms that are ambiguous. By Bill Meacham / The Rag Blog / January 15, 2013 The philosophy club is currently studying Philosophy of Mind, a topic fraught with ambiguity. People use terms such as “mind,” “consciousness,” “awareness,” “experience,” and so forth as

 It's too obvious that, difficult as it may be for liberals and conservatives alike, the best approach to the pedophilia problem is early identification, treatment, compassion and active steps to integrate them safely into society to prevent them from going underground and actualizing their desires by abusing children.


 I recall a particularly nasty film by Stanley Kubrick warning against exactly this sort of proposition : "Clockwork Orange." Can you imagine a more over the top policy than Thought Police ? ( The War on Terror and War on Drugs come to mind .  One says torture and killing is solely the province of uniformed state sanctioned goons....often operating outside the sponsoring state and outside the court system of subject occupied territories.  How else can you have international torture rampant by a signatory of international law forbidding it ?
The other claims the state should regulate what a person puts in their own body : which opens up the question of  "Whose body is it ?")
And then there is the matter of psychology. I well recall days of the 60's when the USSR was claimed and decried as using 'clinics' and mind altering drugs to repress dissent under the guise of treating mental illness. Meanwhile minds in the West were being scrambled by electroshock. And that was done openly.
"Whose mind is it ? "
This should come under 'Opening the Floodgates of Moral Ambiguity.'

I just forced myself to listen to a 10 minute presentation on a radio program sponsored by the extremist right-wing free-market radio station from the John Locke Foundation in North Carolina. They were talking about ALEC. In fact they were whining about how the American Legislative Exchange Council is being picked on by the left -whining, whining, whining. They spent ten minutes trying to get the listener to believe that ALEC is just like NCSL. I get so sick of that argument. While I was listening to it I thought of this quote from a PR Watch articlethat was released today (my em...more »

*"We Came, We Saw, He Died."* - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The same could not be said about Osama Bin Laden's departure. In that case, U.S. solders bravely went to Afghanistan, saw, and at the last minute were pulled back and prevented from killing Bin Laden in 2001 by their superiors in D.C. He later died of natural causes, hardly the spectacular ending to his life that is portrayed in "Zero Dark Thirty." There is zero truth in that film. Bin Laden's image as a menacing dragon who has the ability to escape the reach of the United States was central in the selling... more »
