Question by alistair: Society is devoted to “enslaving” intelligent people?
There are men and women who spend their entire lives as a sort of a sacrifice to encourage the greatest feasible future for their nation or even humanity-at-large, with a sort of wider, probably even almost an all-encompassing sense of identity.
There are other individuals who spend their entire lives sort of committed to their own satisfaction, not caring what anybody thinks, and even sort of “mooching” as considerably as they can have, with a a lot more smaller and immediate sense of identity, that avoids undertaking overtly charitable acts as “providing back to the community,” unless required.
So making use of a somewhat Nietzschean “master-slave” dialectic, isn’t the initial category the “slaves” and the second “the masters” in the sense of the inherent advantages to oneself that they are pursuing? And does this not add to the frequent reputation of an intellectual’s inability to do things in True LIFE, not some useless abstract plane, even additional, by conditioning the intellectual to believe in a “slavish” self-sacrificing manner in accordance with the initial category, and crippling their a lot more “masculine” dominating skills?
The commoners are not subjected to such rigorous self-sacrificing standards.
+This is based on intention. We argue forever about what is “very good” and “poor”, but the intention is entirely a different matter.
+This argument is realistically intention-based, not something else, so does not endure as a lot from the perspectival indeterminability of what is excellent or not existentially.
+”It requires all kinds to make a planet.” No, it does not. It takes certain types to make a world, not to say universally there is a certainty at what those kinds are, but it does not take all kinds. We reside in a globe which I presume exists, not some postmodern, all truths are equal, Orwellian denial of reality.
A paraphrase: In philosophy and politics 2+2 may possibly equal 5, but in building technologies with math and science, it has to equal four.
Answer by Don H
It takes all types to make a planet.
It appears to make sense to categorize individuals and attempt to find god ones and bad ones but these are just illusions that we develop.
They are all good people just doing the very best than can to get by. Who is to say that the a single group is smarter than the other?
I can see a excellent argument for the so-known as lazy moochers to be the sensible ones simply because they get by with the least effort.
Love and blessings Don
