Thread Name: BS: The Basic Causes of Western Stupidity
Subject: RE: BS: The Basic Causes of Western Stupidity
I suspect that the key lies in knowing our own natures. It is easy to get so wrapped up in material problems and solutions that you get convinced you are ntohing but a meat hunk making noises. But that way lies the most pathetic existentialist quandary, and it leaves out the far more important side of the equation. The side of individual nature from which knowing, aesthetics, creativity and a sense of right action and ethics come, is too often shut out. Various subcultures develop various ideas to distort it. And too little time gets taken to learn what it is and how it works.

I betcher, anyway...
