govols comments on Oct 21, 2020:
This is a big deal. As some might suspect, I'm sort of fond of the wilderness, wandering around among the obscurities of human thinking, but of late I'm running out of places to hide from their implications. One of the things I'm facing presently is the complete collapse of world view grounding. The reality is that I'm a 20th century mind, living in an utterly incomprehensible 21st century, with an 18th century world view that's really, honestly (and much to my surprise) grounded in a pre-teen's confidence in an antique Protestant faith, the belief in which I grew out of decades ago. If any among us exists in a nihilistic reality it yours truly. Oddly, there's a certain comfort one can take from such a manner of being. I agree that science is the dominant force driving modern thinking, but I'm not persuaded that any of us is really uncertain about the reality of Truths of the classical world view. I say that because even as we're largely scientific materialists in current year, even the damned atheist determinists, Marxist theorists on the material forces of history, hell, even the nothing can possibly be knowable post-modernists cling to meta-physical notions with no relationship to measurable reality. There has to be a way to move this conversation, as difficult as I might find it. Free will is probably an illusion. The ancients knew it was so, in that we were subject to the fates, possessed by the gods, governed by the will of God; us moderns know it, too, but we grasp it scientifically because we no longer share a collection of stories that give the reality of helplessness any meaningful hope that there's a purpose behind it all. That's why the internet is eat up with people doing "meaning-making" content. Well, how about if human agency, moral responsibility, and material determinism are perfectly compatible within a phenomenological framework that simply accepts as TRUE that undergirding all of it there's a plan toward which we're all obliged to aim. Any knowledge we might ever have of the plan can only be revealed through our perceptions of how we got here, and because our personal knowledge of reality is so infinitesimally limited we have no choice but to dig it out in conflict or conversation.

If Dems are largely voting by mail, and in-person voting is to be largely pro-Trump and/or anti-left, I don't expect any trouble at in-person polling places unless leftists and/or anti-Trump protesters/rioters decide to cause voting disruptions in order to affect the outcome of the election.

I'll check out the video, but yes, I'm realizing that much of our conversation is about huge abstract ideas, while we treat them as commonly shared collections of words to which meanings we a priori agree. We ought to know better. Also trying to figure out applied pragmatism. Less about big stuff,more about specific policy and the intended outcome v historical outcome of similar prior attempts. I'm enjoying difficulties.

govols comments on Oct 8, 2020:
One of the things that pisses me off about the whole SJW/Critical Theory (really, much of the "postmodern" ways of exploring knowledge, worldviews, ideology, etc) is that to a "classical liberal" manner of thinking there are some useful concepts available. It bothers me that there's a fair amount of baby in the bath water, much as there is in various traditional cultural norms, but right now if feels like the baby ought to be drowned, the water distilled to remove any contaminants, and the still itself incinerated as industrial intellectual hazardous waste.

govols comments on Oct 6, 2020:
I once had to write an essay on this topic. I was in my late thirties at the time, comp 101 as a summer college class. Compare and contrast two articles, one pro and one con, without making an argument on the topic itself. I failed the assignment but got an A on the paper; I made a "slippery slope argument" against assisted dying by using the very points made in the pro article to demonstrate that the conversation surrounding the topic has evolved from end-of-life models through infant medical conditions that can't be treated, to include teenagers suffering depression. My objection to assisted dying isn't strident, nor especially absolutist, but remains; I object to the idea of making it normative. I object to the notion of society allowing assisted death to become a moral "norm," the sort of "norm" that becomes slippery to a point we no longer box it in with limits on WHY we're willing to assist. I spent the past weekend with my mother-in-law. She's 91. If I saw me approaching her current mental acuity I would check out sooner than later. We usually don't get that choice. If she were my pet I would put her down, but she isn't. She's the mother of my wife and my wife loves her dearly. If she were my wife's pet? I think she'd feel guilty for keeping her alive in her suffering, but wouldn't have the courage to "assist" her passing. It's a fucked up thing to think about.
I have found myself increasingly reluctant to read articles of either political persuasion.

Who do you want me... Biden: "Proud Boys!" Trump: "...to condemn?" Trump: "Proud boys? Proud Boys stand back and stand by; but I’ll tell you what: somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not a right wing problem. This is a left wing problem."

People who are voting for Biden. Why?
govols comments on Sep 29, 2020:
If I were justifying a vote for Biden it would be a will to power extended to the progressive forces already IN power throughout the managerial governmental structures, the media, the culture making industries and the universities. That foundation would be trusted to provide a solid support structure for an unqualified vice-presidential nominee who would serve most of his term should he be elected. I don't believe that, but that's how I'd rationalize it if I were to vote for the Democrat's nominees.

govols comments on Sep 28, 2020:
No matter your view of the ideas presented, the fact is there's always a new normal being formed in the present. That's part of why conservatism always fails. It is fighting a losing battle because it never has a vision for the future. It works to preserve rather to form anew. Conservatism is an intellectual defense of "that's how we've always done it." In reality, the passions rule, and they're the creative forces of human nature. It's the people who act in the world governed by and acting on their passions are the ones creating the "the ways we've always done it" that conservatives will defend tomorrow--or even later this afternoon. There are passionate people at the extremes who are actively working to organize networks and communities in which new ways of being are becoming manifested in the real world. Right and left are BOTH right now active trying to build, work, buy, support local tribal ecosystems, trying to get themselves unwound from impersonal global multicult BS ratrace world.
Roe v Wade: Trump says Supreme Court ruling on abortion 'possible'

The opinion that such a ruling is unlikely is just that: an opinion.

govols comments on Sep 17, 2020:
I think we're going to have to come up with wisdom that stands outside of reality as science might know it, but that works at the level of how individuals experience being within it. I have an idea that you can't do wisdom and science simultaneously; wisdom and knowledge are not the same thing. Wisdom is looking at the meaning we can assign to beauty, goodness, justice, etc., GIVEN what we think we know about reality. If we think reality is deterministic, if humans are limited by genetics and constructed within those limits by environmental factors, then what does it mean to the experience of being? Wisdom is about integrating the reality of the world with the ways we experience that reality. There won't be A correct philosophy, a single set of wisdom across time and space, because reality for us is what we experience rather than the current location and intensity of material and force.

You're kinda embracing the new role, aren't you? I've been on this for a bit, the whole free will and behavioral conditioning. I'm not sure where it's taking me yet. It feels like science is wrong about free will and Theory is wrong about constructionism. It feels like their is a human mind that exceeds the biological processes of the brain dealing with environmental stimuli. It feels like a weird mix of individual conscience as emergent from the phenomenological human experience of the expectations emanating from the culture within which the individual is formed. I am a product of my raising, but within the framework of that reality I have a certain amount of control over how I will fit myself into society.

I'm not sure that keeping the faith is that hard for believers IF their faith is developed later in life, or if it survives through teens and twenties. My own experience is that, as children begin to lose "wonder," gain "science" and reason, it's easy to learn enough about the world to become doubtful that God is neither sufficient for nor necessary to an understanding of reality. As one gets deeper and deeper into reality, especially into relationships, science and reason begin to also seem less and less sufficient, though reason seems to remain at least relevant, and probably necessary. I guess what I'm saying is, if you maintain a grip on faith through your introduction to modern "knowing," or turn to faith as a result of realizing how inadequate modern "knowing" really is for emotional well-being, it only deepens the longer one accepts it and trusts in it...
